Do you ever have days when things don’t go your way? When you get rejected? Challenged? Frustrated by your boss? When a job interview goes badly? Or you get a bad review, or suffer an online troll experience, or any other kind of horrible thing like that? Of course you do, because we all do. It’s part of the human experience, and when you put creative work out in the world you can multiply the number of times it happens by about 100.
But that isn’t reason enough to give up. Sometimes it’s simply an indication that something needs tweaking or your trajectory needs shifting, or the timing could be better etc, (and sometimes people are just mean). However, saying that doesn’t make it any easier, so I decided to invite Alexandra Franzen onto the podcast to share some of her wisdom around keeping going when soul-crushing things happen.
My conversation with the wonderful Alexandra Franzen will give you the energy to march forward with your creative projects again.
Do you crave unexpected adventure in your life? Have you shied away from risk and got too comfortable in the way you live, work and play? Today’s episode with Women’s Adventure Expo co-founder Rebecca Hughes is sure to get you fired up and curious about how to bring adventure into your daily routine.
After meeting in Japan in 2013, Josie and Tom (Josie’s partner) set up The Coffee Gondola, a completely mobile gondola serving fine coffee in the mountains.
The business began as a dream Josie had and has ever since gone from strength to strength. This episode is a fascinating story for anyone who fears their dreams could be too far from reality. Listen in, you will go away making plans and taking action.
Sam is an inspiration, a three times cancer survivor who founded Sam’s Spaces, a network for people finding their way after cancer. After our fateful meeting (I share the story on the show!) I was so blown away by Sam’s story that I interviewed her for my book Freedom Seeker and was wholly moved by her strength and light.
I’m delighted to have Sam on the show today to talk more about the healing process after experiencing trauma. We go deep into why we need to make radical self-care at the forefront of everything we do.
What do you do when what feels like the unthinkable has happened? You’ve been issued redundancy, you’re out of a job, and you’re afraid you won’t have the financial support you need to pay you mortgage, bills and support your family. In this episode I talk to a free spirited Yorkshire lass, Kerry Roy, who found herself at risk of redundancy, lost her job but didn’t lose her way.
Many creatives dream of turning the items they make into a profitable business that can support their lifestyles so they are free to do work they love from wherever they desire. For one lady, this dream is an ongoing reality and she strives to help other makers profit from their talents and live a life that’s true to them too.
Do you have an idea to start your own business or become self-employed? Perhaps you have many ideas?Do you have a family to support or big financial commitments that tell you working for yourself is not an option? If so, I need to introduce you to Ben Keene. A Freedom Seeker at his very core…
How often do you use your intuition to make a decision? Are you missing a trick by not trusting your gut enough? That’s the topic we got talking around in this episode – why leading with your intuition is the key to happy, balanced, free life for you and those around you.
Do you feel an immense need to exhale and slow down, taking a step back from work and life obligations? Or do you know somebody else who is at risk of burnout? If you need to press the pause and reset button, I am deeply excited for you to listen to this episode with Nicola Moss.
Lisa is a doting mum to Rosie, a little girl born with an incurable life-limiting muscle disorder and we are delighted to be able to share their story with you today. Lisa writes an inspiring blog and is practicing life coaching to help families of disabled children find freedom, positivity and happiness. She also climbs mountains and runs marathons to raise money for charity, and in today’s episode, she explains how she realized the true meaning of life.
We often live out our lives on the path we thought was right for us when we left school. So many of us have the experience of recognising what we are good at, and what brings in the money, and following some version of that path in the hope that it is a route to happiness. But what happens when you get the business card, the flash car, the beautiful home and have plenty left over for fun… but don’t feel happy? What if you’re left craving something more?
What is the smallest thing you can do now to follow your heart? Think about it. Write it down if you like.
This is just one of the many questions of wisdom my guest Steph Jagger plants on us in today’s episode. Steph is the author of Unbound, a story of snow and self-discovery and she’s helped women the world over define who it is they want to BE and what they need to DO to get there.
