23: How do you see yourself in comparison to others?
This is a quick episode where I reflect on my own internal battles which at this stage in life is perceiving myself in comparison to other people. In the past 2 months I have been lacking motivation, feeling overwhelmed, feeling depressed with a sense of being lost so I decided to start therapy, which has helped a lot, in order to try to understand those emotions and perhaps clarify my needs and things I want in life at this moment. Slowly I am realising that some of the things I was doing were purely based on how people would perceive me rather than doing it for the fact that I actually enjoy it and have a interest for it. I guess we all get trapped in worrying too much about what other people think of us and what others are doing with their lives, embracing ourselves for what we truly are is probably the best answer to find meaning in life while we get rid of all the distraction of comparing ourselves to other people.

19: Cathrine Øverli: The woman who taught me what love truly means
Over 2 years now I have met the most incredible woman in my life. She is kind, she is funny, she is sweet, she is driven, she is silly, and I can add more thousand qualities here. This is a conversation I have with my gf Cathrine the woman who taught me what loving someone truly means. Thanks for being vulnerable with me babe and for sticking to my madness. I love you beyond words and only actions can represent how much you are special to me. I guess our relationship has been so amazing is because as Mel Robbins says “there is only 2 things people seek in a relationship, it is either power or connection”. I think that is why our relationship has worked so well, we both seek connection more than anything, dropping the ego and being as humble and as understanding as possible with constantly communication above all of that. Jeg elsker deg my love wishing many beautiful years ahead with you.

15: Pedro Guimaraes: Conversations about ego, life struggles, mindset and more
On this episode I had the amazing opportunity to have a very down to earth conversation with my mate Pedro Guimaraes. What I love about this episode is that we cover so much in 1hr and 30 min and it felt more like having a chat with a mate rather than a interview vibe, which is what I am trying to achieve with this podcast from now on, to be able to give more feedback and be more engaged in the conversation rather than asking questions out of a script. Pedro is a true learner and hungry for answers, we finished this episode at 11:30pm and we were both feeling so pumped about it. We talked about life challenges of living overseas, why ego can be a bad thing but also a good thing, we cover health topics, mindset and so much more. Pedro has also his own podcast so make sure you check him out! Hope you guys love this one as much as I did, stay happy and share the love.

14: What do you do when you feel overwhelmed?
On this solo episode I share what I have been doing when I feel overwhelmed. I woke up today and tried to get some work done and I felt really hopeless so I decided to talk about straight after. I felt I had no power and strength to push me to do the things I had to. I started questioning myself and doubting if I am worthy of trying to pursue the things I want to pursue, and I was like "I should not feel this way, I have so many good things in my life, people go through worst harder s**t and you 25 years old kid complaining and frustrated about the things you do not feel like doing" and this made me feel even worse as if I had no right to feel this way, as if I should only be grateful for what I have and just get s**t done. This episode gave me a lot of clarity around the idea of feeling overwhelmed and things I should do and keep doing to work around situations I might feel this way again. Shout out to my girlfriend Cathrine for putting up with my long deep conversations every night in bed, you always believing in myself thank you so much, I love you! Hope you guys get something out of it, share with me what you do when you feel this way would love to hear from!

11: Chris Vagg: Co-founder of Pass it on Clothing & Co
On this episode I interview the co-founder of Pass it on Clothing & Co, which is a Sydney based not-for-profit which puts your clothes donations directly in the hands of those who need it most. Founded in September 2016 by Chris Vagg and Olga Puga, Pass it on Clothing & Co (in partnership with Orange Sky Laundry Sydney) has been instrumental in providing quality men’s and women’s clothes donations to Sydney’s homeless community, working to make charitable clothes giving more direct, efficient and effective. The idea for Pass it on Clothing & Co came from a house move for Chris and Olga and a resulting in wardrobe change. Many of the pieces to be thrown away were expensive and near new, and needed to be given a new appreciative owner. Chris began researching traditional charities and realised that the best clothes are often kept and sold in charity stores and shopfronts, leaving only the leftover items not deemed good enough for sale to be passed on to those who actually need them. This sparked the idea of taking clothing directly to Sydney’s homeless and disadvantaged community, and working with Orange Sky Laundry to set up a free clothes service to enhance their existing clothes washing and drying initiative. Pass it on Clothing & Co takes clothing donations directly, setting up a wardrobe station on Tuesday evenings at Martin Place alongside Orange Sky Laundry, allowing people to visit and select new clothing directly. Olga, Chris partner, as a professional stylist, offers compassion and support when helping people select the wardrobe pieces. Pass it on Clothing & Co is a not-for-profit and offers this service free of charge. In the first nine months of operation, Pass it on Clothing & Co has provided over 3000 pieces of clothing to over 1000 people living rough in Sydney. The benefits are truly positive, not only physically, but by also impacting the self-esteem and self-worth of the people being helped. The future aim for Pass it on Clothing & Co is to sustain the initiative by providing increased numbers of clothing for Sydney’s homeless community. In its first year of operation, Pass it on Clothing & Co have impacted the lives of over 3,000 people by providing over 5,000 garments to those who need it most. This is a super casual conversation over a beer and I couldn’t be happier with this.

10: Jean-Charles Gars (JC): Nothing can stop me, a passion for food
This is a short episode and I speak to Jean-Charles Gars, a French friend who arrived in Australia 4 years ago to pursue his dreams of starting his own food business. Someone that never gave up on his goals, he created 3 different food companies, closed 2 and he is now the head chef and owner of Sacre Bleu, a French street food catering business, using his passion for food and French culture to dish out happiness. His love for cooking and food has created a no ending trials to create his thing and to learn as much as he can. What I love about this episode is how persistent this guy is to create the next project, without the passion for it, many would have quit. He lost around $50.000,00 dollars during all this journey but quitting was never an option. He says “we all have so much untapped potential, believing in ourself is a constant challenge. Whatever you want to achieve you can do it, it is all on you, find the motivation or goal, then find the drive or passion, nothing can stop you”, and if I could add something to that, make sure you surround yourself with the right people, do they inspire you? Are they positive? Do they have what you want? Do they talk about visions and ideas?
