EPISODE 7 - Alison Williamson
If we were each given three wishes, I think there would be a pretty good chance that most of us might contemplate a wish that has something to do with money. Because the reality is – all of us want to be able to live our dream financial life. Financial planner, Allison Williamson, the latest guest on the podcast, is passionate about helping people on that journey. Don’t worry, this isn’t a get rich quick scheme or a sales pitch – it’s about how Allison has used innovation to create a completely unique business model and build authentic relationships with her clients that help move them towards their financial goals.

EPISODE 5 - Patricia Ball
There's a reason that the story of "country kid leaves small town and heads to the city to make it big" is a tale as old as time. If you're a creative person, regional or rural Australia isn’t usually the place you’d envisage forging a successful career. Most of the time, if you have a creative dream or passion, you’re told that the place you need to be is right in the thick of where all the action happens – where all the teaching and opportunities are, where all the inspiration and money is - the city. But now, more than ever before, people are packing up their lives in the big smoke and heading to the bush. It’s a place that’s never been more alive. The latest guest on the podcast is Patricia Ball, who has lived the city slicker life, and has come to learn that regional Australia is the perfect place for creatives to thrive.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

EPISODE 4 - Malaika Mfula
If someone told you that a third-world, poverty-stricken country had the same problems as your town in regional Australia, you'd probably laugh, thinking that was a bit of a stretch of the imagination. Well, the latest guest on "Thinking Around the Box" doesn't seem to think so. Malaika Mfula travelled to Africa helping regional and remote communities, and then she moved to regional Australia - where the seemingly simple task of finding a GP became near impossible. Turns out, gaining access to basic health care isn't just a third world problem. So Malaika has decided to do something about it - and her idea, which she started in her own regional town has now caught the attention of the leaders of our country in Canberra.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

EPISODE 3 - Kerrie Noonan
Conversations around death, dying, loss and grief can often be pretty uncomfortable ones. They can feel unnerving, possibly a bit morbid, painful and awkward - so often, it feels much better to, well, not talk about it. This is where Kerrie Noonan comes in. Kerrie is a clinical psychologist who has spent her career studying the uncomfortable realities of death, dying, loss and grief. Kerrie believes there's a much better way for us to be approaching these topics, so that we can become equipped to connect with one another in the moments that really count.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

EPISODE 2 - Dr Ellen Downes
The word cancer is a big one. When we hear that word, it's possible that we might be reminded of someone in our world who has suffered, or perhaps someone we've lost. It might be a friend or loved one, a colleague, a family member, or even you yourself might be navigating your way through what can be an earth-shattering life change. Dr Ellen Downes is a rehabilitation specialist and her work has shown her what she believes needs to change when it comes to caring with patients who are living with cancer. Ellen is incredibly passionate about supporting regional and rural patients and giving them the best possible outcome for their circumstances.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
