Episode 017 with Holly Morphew: How to Make a Financial Impact
Last November, I was blessed to attend the JT Foxx Family Reunion in Orlando, Florida. While there I saw Holly Morphew speak about how to make a financial impact and became inspired to push myself out of my comfort zone of ignorance when it comes to financial literacy. Quite honestly, I'm tired of living month-to-month, with only a little bit to fall back on in hard times. Heck. I'm tired of having hard times. While I do not have institutional debt, I do still owe an FFF (Family, Friend, Fool) money. It's enough of a debt to motivate my performance and to teach myself how to get out of this situation. Not only that, my husband and I have considerable aspirations for the future of our family, both here in Australia and his homeland of Nigeria. We will not be able to achieve anything if we continue to do what we've always done. As Henry Ford said: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” Today's interview with Holly is one that taught me a great deal, you too will be educated and inspired by: What a Financial Health Counselor is and why Holly became one What the difference is between a financial adviser and a financial health counselor is What creates financial stress What Rotary International did to help Holly’s career How Holly’s business Financial Impact began Why Holly recommends that you start your business irrespective of accreditation Why Holly has a business coach Holly gets into the nitty gritty of what it means to have financial wellness Why Holly recommends you have a 3-8 month emergency fund in savings and she recommends where to put the money Why debt repayment is a need How Holly defines financial literacy Understanding what your debt burden is how to create different kinds of income Why people fear money and feel it controls them How the messages we receive as children teach us about money management How awareness around money and financial literacy can empower us Why passive income is the way toward financial freedom Holly explains what non-performing debt is and why she says: “Get out of non-performing debt as quickly as possible.". How to calculate your Financial Impact Factor What we’re not told about banking systems, loans, overdrafts and fees What financial freedom looked like to Holly when she started her business and what it looks like today Holly talks about her programs and products and how anyone in the world can benefit from what she teaches Why businesses are beginning to invest in their employee’s financial well-being The ladies who are inspiring Holly’s Inner Mentor at the moment And soooo much more!

Naturally I looked close to home and business for my initial guests, however as word spread more and more people began to open up and tell me their unique stories. Today's interview is with one such guest. Aaron Zelman, a life insurance adviser. One thing I would like you to do before you listen today is to ask yourself, do I have a preconceived idea of what I think a conversation with a life insurance adviser will be like?

The organisation, The RSA, does a great job with their RSA Animates series. These artists are known as Graphic Recorders or Visual Practitioners.

Your WHY is the very reason you exist.’ ~ Simon Sinek The pilot program is to test drive the Made to Inspire WHY Discovery workbook, based on the WHY Discovery online course developed by Simon Sinek. The purpose of this workbook is to help you discover your WHY and construct a WHY statement.

Episode 007 with Kylie Mouat
If there was to be a tagline for Kylie, it would be that she does death differently. And appropriately, it is exactly the way we want our lives to be remembered and celebrated. It doesn't occur to us to speak publicly about what happens to us when we die, but I think it's essential. In a humble and respectfully funny way, Kylie Mouat, from Kazique Creative Funeral Events, helps us to understand the industry of death and funerals and explains why we need to be real and hands-on in the process of planning either our loved ones' or our own final life celebration. Kylie helps us to learn: The two things we're guaranteed in life How the death of her mother inspired the creation of her funeral services business What elements of Kylie's career and experience have lead to perfect production and event facilitation Why talking about death is necessary to live a full life Why a funeral is really a Life Celebration and a wake is an After Party What is involved with planning your own funeral and why you must be involved before you no longer can What the funeral process is and what your rights are as a grieving family member What the LGBTQ community need to know about their rights for the planning of their significant others funeral How to capture your memories in a portfolio of your life to support the celebration that is who you are Find Kazique: Kazique's website and on Facebook A bonus that we didn't discuss but is well worth watching is the SBS Insight episode called Grand Finale, on which Kylie was a participant. It's where I got the idea to be shot up as fireworks when I die. We'd love to hear how you'd like to do death differently. If you've got questions for Kylie or I post a comment below or hit us up on Facebook. Until next week, blessed be my friends, "The honour, the joy & fulfillment I get from seeing ease of pain far outweighs any sadness." Kylie Mouat talking about why she does death differently.

Episode 006 with Kevin Kapusi Starow
I love food. My husband says my version of cooking is 'concoction cooking' because I do not seem to have the ability to follow a recipe without throwing my own spin on things. Fortunately this is actually a good thing as far as it goes to the Bubble Muffin Kids Cooking Club and its founder, Kevin Kapusi Starow. In this fascinating interview, we explore cooking, food science and his determination to eliminate childhood obesity through fun, interactive and playful cooking classes for children. In this fun and funny conversation we learn and be inspired by: Kevin's background in cooking and food education What growing up on a farm taught him about respecting food in its natural form Kevin's biggest mistake in business The really creative things you can do with agar agar and beetroot, or how to make meringue without egg.

Episode 004 with Tomas Jajesnica
Tomas Jajesnica is one chilled out guy. Not much fazes the man who carries a giant smile. What I really like about Tomas is the natural way in which he can convey alternative thinking, like meditation, into a language that corporate business professionals can understand and take advantage of. Tomas is more commonly recognised as MrMeditate himself. Mr Meditate is an in-person facilitated meditation program for corporations to help to create and maintain positive workplace cultures - fostering greater productivity, enhanced individual performance, and ultimately producing considerable growth in profit for business. And who doesn't love extra cash in the bank?! In this interview, you will learn and be inspired by: Who Tomas is and what he means by "patiently and persistently, you are bound to be successful" What meditation is and why it's called a practice The three major things meditation helps us achieve Why you only need to meditate for 5 minutes a day to be effective long term How the business, Mr Meditate, was started, and why How businesses will profit if they incorporate meditation practice into their work days The big, hairy, audacious vision Tomas has set for Mr Meditate The tools you can use to easily apply meditation to your life every day Links to things we discuss: Mr Meditate website Mr Meditate on Facebook and Twitter Tomas on LinkedIn Law Institute of Victoria - Journal - Article by Tomas "Wellbeing: All in the Mind" Until next week, blessed be my friends, “Corporate meditation is good for people and bottom lines.” Tomas Jajesnica Episode Gratitude: Vanessa Phillips for the show notes & Junel Estafia for sound engineering, compilation of the music and final editing of this episode.

Episode 005 with Megan Davis
I find social media to be a beast, it's an unruly, self-defining, ever-changing technological creature. There are no rules. No boundaries. It's a place to play. It never forgets. But always forgives eventually. There are so many platforms, so many ways to reach people and by the same token an overwhelming amount of dizzying noise that I find it hard to find authenticity. Thankfully, we have Megan Davis from Spendlove and Lamb to help us make sense of it all. I've known Megan for a few years now and have admired how passionate she is for this creature that we all love, and hate to love. In this episode you will learn and be inspired by: Who Megan is and how she built her storytelling and social media training, coaching & consultancy business, Spendlove and Lamb organically Why Megan became 'houseless' and what she learned about generosity and the power of amplifying a message Why there is no one and only way with social media Megan offers some tips for people when deciding which social media platforms to focus on We talk about Snapchat, Megan does a great job of making sense of it's pointlessness And, helps us understand Instagram and why Twitter is being misused Megan clarifies why it's not a great idea to use a scheduling tool, despite their convenience We talk about the workshops Megan runs on Twitter, Snapchat and her new storytelling board game And we find out what is educating and inspiring Megan at the moment Links to things we discussed: Megan on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Snap @spendloveandlamb Spendlove and Lamb website Razor Sharp Show - podcast interview: Ep 011 Telling Your Story with Megan Davis We'd love to hear from you.
