How To Be an Overnight Success — Interview With Maria Hatzistefanis - Episode 76
It all started when she got fired. A young girl growing up in a safe environment on a small Greek island, where her parents praised doing things safely and only chasing a job that was guaranteed to secure her future, Maria Hatzistefanis knew she wanted to impact others in a unique way. Her childhood was never extravagant or luxurious. Her parents were teachers, and they all lived a very low-key and quiet lifestyle. Then one day (in her 20s), something happened that took Maria off the “expected” path and thrust her into the entrepreneurial world unexpectedly… She got fired from her first big job. And she says it was the best thing that ever happened to her. Maria decided to start her own business, Rodial, a potent and unique skincare brand (she even has a vegan line + uses a shocking special ingredient that mimics Botox)! She is now a London-based entrepreneur, best-selling author, TV personality, and podcaster! I was so thrilled when she agreed to be on the podcast. She talks about her life before she made it big, how she actually almost went bankrupt a few years ago, and she spills her dirty little skincare secrets (you will totally love these)! She also gives the most epic advice for aspiring entrepreneurs that I LOVE. You’re going to flip over this interview! Don’t forget to check out her amazing skincare line, linked below (I’m even buying some myself!) Happy listening!

How To Listen So Your Kids Will Talk and Talk So Your Kids Will Listen - Episode 75
Most people just want to be right. If you’ve ever paid close attention to how people talk to each other, nobody is actually listening. It’s just a game of right vs. wrong where the “listener” is just waiting for the other person to stop talking so they can talk again. This is not listening. It’s not even effective communication. Listening and communication are skills that need to be developed—skills that many adults don’t ever end up mastering. This gets compounded when we become parents. If we haven’t learned how to effectively communicate by the time we have children, we then make it damn near impossible for our children to learn and master these skills. It becomes a vicious cycle that makes relationships exhausting and hard. You’ve heard me discuss how many of our issues actually stem from our childhood. This is no different. As a child, I grew up in a very authoritarian household. My parents were my parents, not my friends. We were spanked, shouted at, and punished — we even had a naughty step and went to a boarding school. I never felt understood or listened to. I spent much of my childhood rebelling and doing whatever I could to be the exact opposite of my parents (which is actually what most children do when their parents aren’t effective communicators). I craved acceptance and individuality but didn’t receive those things from my parents. But I vowed to be the total opposite of them and have spent my entire adult life seeking and learning how to do better, especially for my own kids. I have never punished my children. They’ve never been shamed, shouted at, talked down to, or suppressed. I ask them questions and nurture their individuality. I teach them how to seek answers for themselves. And most importantly? I accept them for who they are, and they know and feel that every single day. If every parent can learn these important skills, we will witness a massive transformation in future generations. In this podcast, I will teach you exactly how to listen so your kids will talk and talk so your kids will listen. And in turn, your kids will have the healthiest, most fulfilling relationships at every level. Listen closely as I share the following strategies (and examples) that you can implement immediately in all of your relationships. But know this: it’s not enough for you to simply listen and read these strategies. You must actively apply them in your life every chance you get. Strategies to have a better relationship with your kids: Use “It seems/sounds like…” questions to establish what they want. Ask “why” questions. Ask, “What would be the downside if you didn’t get it?” (this identifies the REAL problem) Ask, “Why do you need it to be that way?” (this establishes the emotional attachment) I really hope you enjoy this episode!

This 8-Figure Business Coach Turned Empathy Into a Superpower That Made Him Millions (and How You Can Do It Too) – Interview With Alex Charfen - Episode 74
Stop letting yourself off the hook. Too often, we fall victim to excuses, and these excuses become the way we do everything in our life. They become the habitual reasons we never reach our full potential, and yet most of us never realize we are the cause...or the solution. Over the last few years, more and more people are jumping into the entrepreneurial life, but something is happening in the process—they’re letting themselves off the hook. They’re not showing up for themselves. They’re getting wrapped up in their emotions and doing all the wrong things that are ultimately leading to the demise of their business. So I decided to interview Alex Charfen, co-founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar business, to get to the root of why most people are struggling with entrepreneurship. It ended up being quite an emotional podcast. Alex may be a multi-millionaire now, but he has struggled throughout his life and has even experienced bankruptcy. As a kid, he had a difficult time fitting in. He was made fun of, mocked, and constantly judged (by kids and adults alike). He was the weird kid with massive self-awareness, always getting in trouble and constantly switching between the gifted classes and the special education classes, never knowing where he belonged. He spent much of his childhood surrounded by powerful women who supported each other emotionally. As a result, he developed an incredibly influential level of empathy, which I deem his superpower. He has used his superpower to go from bankrupt to being on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing companies in the country three years in a row and won many other awards. Now, his mission is to help other entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses just like he did. In this interview, he talks candidly about his struggles growing up and how he’s now using these experiences to make millions of dollars helping people. And you might be surprised to learn how he’s done it. You will hear him talk about: Why he’s no longer unschooling his kids (I absolutely loved this) How his unique childhood experiences formed his massive level of empathy How top-down pressure can destroy your team/business How entrepreneurs are failing and how they should be running their business How masculine and feminine energy can work synergistically to explode your business and make you millions What’s missing in women-owned businesses that could be the one catalyst to their massive success Why we say businesses are becoming more powerful than governments You are going to really love hearing Alex share his heart and passion.

How To Build a World-Class Physique — Q&A With Mark Getty - Episode 73
One thing you can’t cheat is hard work. We recently finished our last Butt Camp competition, and the final results were mind-blowing, but they didn’t come without nay-sayers and loads of confusion from people who don’t understand what goes into extreme physique change. My programs require 110% focus, determination, and discipline—to the point where only about 10% even finish them. Understandably, those who don’t have any background in body sculpting often question the final results because they’re so unbelievable. So I decided to interview my very own trainer, Mark Getty (the head judge in Butt Camp), to shed some light on exactly what it takes to sculpt results so mind0blowing that people not only question whether you’ve altered your pictures, but want to know how the hell you did it. Why Mark? Mark is a world-renowned champion heavyweight bodybuilder who has placed in the top 3 in his category over 100 times and holds 48 titles (both amateur and pro)! He knows more about physique change than almost anyone else and drops some big truth bombs in this interview that you can’t miss. He talks about: What to do if you don’t have a spotter How to go to failure even if you’re a beginner (and what failure really is) The most important equipment for your home gym Photoshoot tips that can take your photos from second place to first place How to transition out of a shred without gaining all the weight back His EPIC breathing advice for getting through the reps (this is great) ...and so much more fantastic advice that you need to hear! You will also hear about his experience in the last few weeks going plant-based for the first time! You are going to LOVE this episode.

How a Mom of 3 Transformed Her Life by Deciding To Be Happy— Interview With Meaghan B. Murphy - Episode 72
Are you choosing to be a victim? Did you know that whether you are happy or whether you feel like a victim, those are choices you can make? About 18 months ago, I met my wonderful podcast guest, Meaghan B. Murphy. We were both at a big media event (where I was on stage pitching to speakers, she being one of them), and afterwards, I wrote to her and thanked her for her feedback and critique. We have stayed in touch ever since, and I was so excited to finally have her on the podcast because her story is absolutely incredible. Meaghan is the author of Your Fully Charged Life - where she shares her best tips & tricks for having endless energy and happiness. She is a longtime magazine editor, writer, on-air personality expert, podcaster, and certified trainer (wow!). But, she had a very tough childhood before all that. Growing up, her nickname was “Grumpy” because she was always so miserable and negative. Her teen years were no different as she found herself a raging anorexic to cover up the inner negative turmoil in her head. Her anorexia got so bad that she was admitted to the hospital. Her best friend (also an anorexic) was on her way to the same hospital when she jumped from the car and died. Tormented by her friend’s death, Meaghan struggled for many years. But she eventually decided that her mess would become her message. As you listen, you will hear: Her biggest failure + what she learned from it What PERMA Theory is and how it relates to your ability to flourish and be happy One super simple (+ tiny) step you can take tomorrow morning that will noticeably move your happiness needle How she found her sole purpose in life How to eliminate your lack of motivation with 2 simple things Look, life will throw you a sh*tty hand at some point (probably more than once). Making the choice to be happy regardless of that? That is a skill very few people ever learn in life. It won’t mean your life will be perfect, but it sure as hell will allow you to flourish despite the chaos. And that is something we all deserve. Hope you love this as much as I did!

Avoidance of Discomfort Is the Root of Unhappiness — Interview With JP Sears - Episode 71
Are you an approval addict? So many of us are living our lives to make everyone around us think we are someone we’re not. We don’t do this on purpose to be deceptive; there is a deeply-ingrained need to seek the approval of everyone around us so that we feel safe and comfortable. But have you ever thought about why we gravitate towards comfort? Why is it that most people stay stagnant in life and never see real growth or success? We’re living in a world where we have vilified discomfort. We give everyone a participation trophy, so they don’t feel bummed, stop our children from crying or feeling strong emotions, worry about offending people (thereby stifling ourselves), and create habits of convenience because the alternative is hard. I finally had a chance to sit down and interview one of the funniest and most amazing people ever, JP Sears (the episode you all have been dying to hear!). We talk about how chasing discomfort is actually the key to success. An insanely talented comedian, he is probably best-known for his sarcastic sense of humor. He often focuses on real-world issues, like Coronavirus, politics, and even gluten intolerance issues (you will hear about this in the episode!). He throws unexpected twists into the humor that many people don’t appreciate (one of the many reasons I love him). His comedy is designed to get people to cut the scar tissue that binds them and think for themselves. It’s never about the surface-level topic you are listening to; it’s about the underpinnings of human behavior. We draw some surprising parallels with our childhoods and how we are now as parents (he is a new dad to an adorable little boy!) As you listen, you will hear some deep stuff, including: The deeper meaning behind him chasing discomfort Why he thinks people’s avoidance of discomfort is the root of their unhappiness The core values he hopes to instill in his son What he thinks is missing the most in the world His definition of evil and which emotion leads us to its effect The dumbest advice he has ever given himself False measurements of success and how they can destroy our children ...and so much more powerful stuff This interview truly hit me so profoundly, and I can’t wait for you to hear it.

Your Biggest Failures Will Become Your Best Stories — Interview With Tarzan Kay - Episode 70
I truly believe that failing is the best way to learn life’s most valuable lessons. If you’re not failing, you’re holding yourself back from living up to your true potential and from being wildly successful. I had the pleasure of interviewing a brilliant email marketing expert and copywriting course creator, Tarzan Kay (isn’t her name just fabulous?). Tarzan was never financially secure growing up and well into adulthood. Born into an intensely Christian family, (where she could only wear dresses, couldn’t watch TV, etc.), she was basically forced to focus on finding her life’s purpose. Tarzan credits her strict (& often tumultuous) childhood for who she is today. As a teenager, she fell into a life of drug use but found the incredible strength at age 20 to slam on the breaks and not allow herself to continue down that dark path. She became one of the world’s best copywriters (charging thousands of dollars a day for her amazing work) and has since focused her career on creating online courses to help other entrepreneurs learn the incredible skill of writing to sell (a.k.a copywriting). Now a mom of 2, she’s the breadwinner for her family and wouldn’t have it any other way. She has found her life’s purpose and candidly shares all the failures that brought her to where she is today. She also opens up about the truth behind how the marketing industry feeds into unrealistic expectations for your business (no one talks about this!) As you listen to this episode, you’ll also hear: The fascinating story behind her name (this is EPIC) The one thing she wishes she knew when she first started How your failures ultimately lead to your biggest successes The intense moment she “woke up” and gained awareness at a whole different level (brace yourself for this one—it’s utterly fantastic) I can’t wait for you to hear this!

17 steps to financial freedom & fulfilment - interview with John Lee Dumas - Episode 69
Most people don’t have what it takes to be an entrepreneur. (That’s actually not a bad thing.) They dream of having enough money to live in total financial freedom, but when the reality strikes, and it’s time to toe the line, they fall short. Why does this happen? I had the honor of interviewing John Lee Dumas, founder & host of Entrepreneurs On Fire, who boldly answers this question and many more. John was an active-duty officer in the U.S. Army (spending time in a war zone in Iraq), where he developed an insane level of discipline and mental fortitude at quite a young age. He is definitely no stranger to overcoming challenges that seem impossible and uses those skills strategically in his business. In this episode, he discusses his new book, The Common Path to Uncommon Success: A Roadmap to Financial Freedom and Fulfillment, in which he lays out a 17-step roadmap to unlocking your greatest potential and creating a life of total fulfillment. (He even talks about some of those steps during the interview—one of which will blow your damn mind!) John has identified the common foundational principles successful entrepreneurs share that allow them to achieve uncommon success, and he dives deep into some of these in our interview. He also boldly goes where not many people are willing to go, and that is bringing to light that not everyone has what it takes to be an entrepreneur and how that isn’t a bad thing! As you listen to this incredible interview, you will learn: The importance of the “Zone of Fire” and how to identify yoursHow being a “challenger” can help you reach massive successWhat 3 specific things John Lee has done better than most entrepreneurs The one thing that I attribute to my own high efficiencyMy #1 goal in life (this might even shock you) What John thinks about the idea that money cannot buy happinessJohn acronym for F.O.C.U.S (this is fantastic) He also shares how he generated $100,000+ net profit for 90 months in a row (which you can learn about in more detail in his book, which is now available for pre-order).

Should Women Be Ashamed of Cosmetic Procedures? — Interview with Lisa Waring - Episode 68
We are a society of quick-fixes. It seems that there are certain fixes that women do to themselves that are entirely acceptable (hair dye, false eyelashes, hair extensions, cosmetic tattoos), yet others are so taboo that if you admit you’ve done them, be ready for the judgy eye rolls and insults. I recently posted something on my Instagram about a procedure I had done to stimulate my natural collagen production around one side of my glutes. (You would have thought I announced a criminal act.) I have spent the last 5 years strategically building my body. Six weeks ago, I got 10 tiny threads in my butt, and the internet went ballistic because apparently, my body is now “unattainable” and “unrealistic” (I literally had one little line softened under my butt). I’ve been told I’m a sellout, a liar, and overly-obsessed with my looks. I’ve lost followers, and people have not filtered their disappointment in me. But I’ve also had many wonderful messages thanking me for being so transparent about the work I get done. If a woman wants to enhance her looks to give her more confidence, why is this such a shame in our society? I’ve never understood this. Women deserve to feel beautiful at all stages of their lives, so why do people lose their bloody minds over cosmetic work? In this episode, I interviewed my personal aesthetic nurse, Lisa Waring, from Face Therapy NI here in Belfast. She’s absolutely incredible and so knowledgeable. She dishes all the details about these procedures that everyone should know. You will learn: Why you should ALWAYS go to a medical practitioner for your cosmetic proceduresThe worst horror story of Lisa’s careerThe one thing Lisa wishes she would’ve known when she first startedWhat botox really is and how it works in the body (hint: this does not change regardless of where you go for it)A shocking fact about cosmetic filler that most people probably don’t knowWhat body part Lisa thinks clients should treat first She also gives fantastic advice for women who may be scared or worried about backlash if they ever admitted they had these procedures done.

Learn All My Success Secrets In This Bonus Interview With Shane Walsh - Episode 67
It took me 6 years to make my first million and nearly 5 years to get the body I have now. My successes haven’t come easily. I remember vividly the moment I decided I wasn’t happy with my body - at age 37! (you’ll hear about this moment in this episode) I had been living on 1200-1400 calories a day, basically starving, and still wasn’t happy. Something clicked. I knew the only way I was going to change my body was to do something different. Joining the gym and finally hitting the weights for the first time in my life ignited my love of muscles that was dormant for many years. My body changed rapidly as I trained hard AF, ate like a horse, and filled up my softening, sagging skin with gorgeously plump muscles. I showed up every damn day, did the work, and refused to give up. And I apply this to everything that I do.

From Broke to $10 Million - Interview with Amy Porterfield - Episode 66
Several years ago, when I started The Sculpted Vegan, there was one specific investment I made that would forever change the course of my businesses: Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy Amy (who calls herself “The Queen of Baby Steps”, and you’ll hear why) has been a huge source of inspiration to me. Last year, she reached the $10 million dollar turnover mark, has been featured in Forbes for breaking the glass ceiling, has sold more than 40,000 courses, has a mailing list of over a quarter of a million subscribers, and the list goes on! She is truly an incredible businesswoman, mentor, and friend. I have been a champion of hers for many years, so you can imagine my delight when she agreed to be on the podcast!(It’s really going to blow your socks off)Listen to how she talks so candidly about: Her successes AND failures (if you know me, you know I love failures!)How increasing awareness surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement became the catalyst for positive changes in her business practicesHow she got started in the industry and the moment she knew she wanted to be her own boss2 things she says that stop people from reaching true successHow she really feels about her husbandThe biggest lesson she has learned in lifeYou’re going to absolutely love this podcast!Reference List: Digital Course Academy ( does not open until March 2021, so no link)Amy’s podcast (https://www.amyporterfield.com/amy-porterfield-podcast/)Amy’s Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/amyporterfield/?hl=en)Amy’s Clubhouse (@amyporterfield)Forbes Article: (https://www.forbes.com/sites/celinnedacosta/2019/08/27/how-one-woman-broke-through-the-glass-ceiling-and-built-a-multi-million-dollar-online-course-empire/?sh=31bf93077def)Grant Cardone (https://grantcardone.com/)Quotes used: If people hate you and talk about you, that’s great! That means they will spread your name far and wide. Just because you didn’t know, doesn’t mean you’re not responsible. Lead with compassion. People are fighting battles we know nothing about.

Get anything you want by learning the secrets of negotiation, with Chris Voss (ex FBI hostage negotiator) - Episode 65
15 months ago I hated negotiating. I hated asking for discounts and I hated haggling on price. I was an effective communicator, but I wasn’t an effective negotiator. I got nervous in negotiating situations because I wasn’t sure how to ask for what I wanted, without seeming demanding or unreasonable. That’s when I discovered Chris Voss. Searching on Audible, I found Voss’ book ‘Never Split the Difference’. An ex FBI negotiator, the book taught me negotiating skills that changed my life. Armed with these new skills (and a completely new mindset around negotiating), it would not be an overstretch to say that my life has transformed. I have used the skills Voss teaches to develop deeper relationships with my husband, kids, family and employees. I have saved myself thousands of dollars, received complimentary upgrades on flights and in hotels and diverted crises in the business with staff and customers. When Chris agreed to be a guest on my podcast, I jumped for joy. I saw that he was hosting a FREE 5 Day Negotiation Challenge through a private Facebook Group. So I reached out to him on Instagram and offered to share it with my audience. Ten minutes later we had exchanged cell phone numbers and set up a podcast interview at 7am UK time (this was 8pm on Saturday night). Do yourself a favour and listen to this interview with master negotiator himself, Chris Voss. I know I am fangirling all over this right now, but with good reason. I need you to trust me on this one. If you want to be successful in life, relationships or money making, you NEED to learn the secrets of tactical empathy and negotiation. Listen to the interview and sign up for the challenge. And after you’ve listened, please leave me a comment and let me know your favourite part! Don’t forget to also follow Chris on Instagram. See you inside the challenge! It’s going to be epic.

For years, I was scared of getting fat. Terrified. But now I’m so much more relaxed about food, able to indulge when I want, and shred when I need to. So what triggered this change? How did I do it? Listen in to find out.
