#22 Amy Suto : If It's Scary, You Should Probably Do It

And much more. But as logical as it sounds, her journey has also been very tough at some point as she had to work VERY hard to make it that far that fast.

#21 Hannah Siddiqui: Know Your Worth
After our first interview last November, I still had a lot of questions for Hannah Siddiqui. For example, we talked about what it is like to be a creative person and deal with our emotion, and then progressively got into the business side of it all. We actually talked money, which is usually a big taboo for everyone but maybe even more in the creative industry. But we got to this topic when Hannah said a phrase that caught my attention: It's important to know your worth.

#11 Aleise Kay: Building Your Finances Is A Mindset
This week's episode of Waves Podcast is DENSE. It is super interesting and is 99% of new knowledge - the remaining 1% is the time I was talking. Aleise Kay is a coach in finance and well-being and she explained us how these two elements are linked. We tend to assume that being good at finances is just about saving up but things are different to her. You need to know who you are, what you want, learn, be open, and much more to become financially responsible. Funnily enough, I thought this episode would be different from the others. More technical, less spiritual... Well it wasn't. Turns out if you want to manage your money well, you need to manage yourself well. Be at peace and feel good. Then you can invest.

#10 Urbanfux: I Have To Do It Because I Want To
Last episode of Waves Podcast before Christmas, last episode of the year... I had to pick a guest that embodies this period of happiness and positivity! That's why this episode is a conversation with Urbanfux, streamer on YouTube, awesome human being and very good friend of mine. To be honest, I don't know anybody that is as positive as her, and a chat with such an incredible person is always very fun and refreshing. We obviously started by talking about the difference between her online ID Urbanfux and her real name: Jenny. Although these two personas live in the same mind, they are different: Urbanfux is a very outgoing person while Jenny is a lot more shy, for example. Which is why she talked about the way she deals with this aspect of her personality and why it isn't really "bad" in essence. Being a very messy person, and knowing that Jenny is quite the opposite, I also asked her how she manages her time, before "waffling on" and sharing online and real life experiences with others. Positivity attracts positive people. That is one of the ideas I want to remember from this episode, along Jenny's words: "I have to do it because I want to do it". This quote sort of contradicts what people usually think: "I want to do it because I have to do it", it reminds us that our decisions must be fueled by our dreams, needs and desires... Not the opposite. This is an inspiring and motivating episode in which we dealt with topics like well-being, personal development, The Internet, shyness, streaming... And many others! Hope you will find this podcast interesting!

Really. What's the worst that could happen? In this episode, writer, podcast host and Twitch streamer Courtney Diamond reminds us that we need to try to do what we want and realize that the risks aren't that high. People might mock you? So what? You can't let your fear dictate your future... Success has nothing to do with luck either... It just depends on you. An amazing episode of Waves Podcast, in a funny & "chill" mood, dealing with important self-development, creativity and self-help topics... Without forgetting well-being.

#8 Hannah Siddiqui : We All Have A Story To Share
In this episode of Waves Podcast, Hannah Siddiqui tells me about how she became a successful photographer, how she started her brand at only 20yo, and collaborated with brands like Adidas or Facebook... We then talk about society issues like gender, sexuality, tolerance, but also the way people behave on social media, hiding their "negative" feelings and trying to depict a perfect happy life everyday. She explains that if we could all share our story freely, tolerance would greatly improve and the Internet could be what it is supposed to be: a free source of knowledge for all of us ! With the election coming, Hannah also asks to our American audience to GO OUT and VOTE on November 6th !
