EP123 | The real villain of productivity isn't what you think

A few weeks ago I shared in Episode 117 about the parasympathetic experiment I was doing on myself. I shared how whilst I’m great at taking time out for fun etc, I’m not often getting into that rested parasympathetic state. So as I was digging deep, doing the inside out work, something else was coming up recently and I thought I’d devote this episode to talking about it... I’ve had what I’m calling a capacity problem. Listen to this episode to see if you have this too.

EP117 | Parasympathetic Guinea Pig - Part 1

I had one of those ah-ha moment conversations again a few days ago. One of my mentors said ‘Merilyn, you run at high energy, even when excited (rather than stressed)... your nervous system isn’t getting into parasympathetic state enough’.

He was right. Being a VisionMaker too doesn’t help.

And the weird 2020 agenda is definitely not helping either! Pile on the collective stress that the planet is experiencing, and our nervous systems are put to the test.

Over in LeadYourWorld Entrepreneurs, we did our seasonal Planathon last week. Part of the process is re-looking at our ideal week. As my business has grown a lot over the last 12 months I’ve tended to just make my days fuller, without being aware of the toll on my nervous system (as gosh, I’m excited, not stressed). So as I was looking at my ideal week template I realised my ‘free’ time wasn’t getting me into a parasympathetic state! It was crash state (I do love the escapism of...

EP116 | Black Lives Matter - Eavesdropping On A Chat Between Besties

This is one of my best friends Ros. We met in London and we've known each other for about 20 years. We are also businesses accountability buddies, even though I now live in Sydney. The other night we were chatting about what's going on in the world right now, and especially in the USA. The conversation was so powerful and touching I asked if I could switch on the recorder and share it! This episode is that candid conversation.

EP114 | Black Lives Matter - with award winning singer & actor Miquel Brown

In this incredible interview, Miquel Brown shares her stories of brushes with the Ku Klux Klan, dating David Bowie and what it was like growing up in the USA, along with her thoughts on the sad death of George Floyd.

When you meet Miquel Brown, the first thing you'll notice is her big warm smile. Her energy, her enthusiasm, and her love for people stand out and you might find you become great friends.

This is exactly what happened with us over 20 years ago. It wasn't until after we became friends that I discovered she has 6 gold records, 1 platinum album, has acted in movies such as French Kiss, Fantastic Beasts, American Haunting, Rollerball, Superman, as well as endless performances in the West End. Wow!

She's one of the most humble people I know and is still busy working, juggling multiple entrepreneurial and creative projects in her 7th decade. Miquel was born in Motown and is the mother of singer Sinitta and stepsister of Amii Stewart.
