What if the secret to building and growing a business that people wanted to love and support was to actually just be yourself? Wouldn’t that be a crazy idea? Well, watch my powerful conversation with George Bettany, co-founder of Sanctus who believes that being yourself is good for business. He should know, their startup is on track to make 7-figures in 2019 without even having a sales team!
From rags to riches, how a University drop out launched a tech startup, raised $1 million and lived the dream. So could have gone the narrative of today's guest, if it weren't for the fact that James Routledge woke up one day having panic attacks and realised that the company he had built was a soulless shell. It was time to hit the reset button. This is the incredible true story of how a 20something year old took on the challenge to change the perception of mental health and put the first mental health gym on the high street by founding Sanctus.
In today’s episode I sit down with David Arnoux, Co-Founder of Growth Tribe, Europe's #1 Growth Academy who operate in six countries and whose mission is to teach progressive digital skills to 1,000,000 students globally.
For a story to be compelling there needs to be a tension between the possibility of the Hero to win the day, with the possibility of them also loosing it all. It’s what makes it interesting for us to keep watching. Why does this matter? Well, if you've been experiencing a level of self-doubt lately when it comes down to launching your projects, or putting yourself out there, then you’re going to love this week’s episode.
Like with most things in life, when it comes down to relationships, the hard thing to do and the right thing to do are almost always the same thing. These are some of the wise words taken from this week’s interview with a very special guest, James J. Sexton, a hard-hitting divorce lawyer with over 17 years of experience. By helping over 1,200 woman and men navigate the tricky waters of divorce, James shares his insights and wisdom from the frontline of the courtroom to keep you out of his office and help you improve on your own relationship.
In today’s powerful conversation I sit down with Dr Rupy Aujla, a GP in the NHS and the founder, podcast host and author of The Doctor’s Kitchen who’s on a mission to educate the world about why what you chose to put on your plate is the most important health intervention you can make for your health.
What if I told you I could wave a magic wand over you and with the snap of my fingers you could have a book deal, a best-selling book, a super popular TEDx talk, a massive following online, oh, and a six pack…
Would you want it?
Here’s the real question though, do you think having all those things would solve all your problems?
If you answered yes to either of the above, you’re in for a treat.
Today’s powerful conversation is with international male model, fitness expert, best-selling author and social media influencer, Roger Frampton who’s TEDx talk, “Why Sitting Down Destroys You” has received more than 2.1 million views on YouTube and who’s book “The Flexible Body” was an instant Amazon best seller.
Roger’s story is an incredible tale of a young man being on track to becoming a carpenter working on building sites to suddenly spending over a decade on the catwalks of Milan, Paris and New York as a male model, making more money than he could have ever dreamed of.
But what Roger didn’t expect next was to be schooled by a six year old girl who would go on to forever change the course of Roger’s career and life.
I had such a blast connecting with Roger at the White City Place Podcast Pod studio where we talked about his journey, his experience of his TEDx talk being his first public speaking experience and what it’s really like to try and build a business around a powerful message.
Roger is on a mission to prove once and for all that good bodies are simply a by-product of a deep understanding of how to move it efficiently and graciously.
We also got super deep and Roger opened up for the first time about a ton of stuff.
Plug in your headphones, turn up the volume, because I have a feeling you're going to love the energy between Roger and I on today's very special episode.
