Hands up who has put on pandemic weight? Well, today's guest, Nagina Abdullah, will inspire us, even if we think it's not possible to lose weight and get healthy. Her story is soooo motivating.
After struggling for years with weight loss and yo-yo diets, Nagina turned to what she knew best: data. As someone who has always been science-minded, Nagina took to her strengths and created a relationship with food that would not only help her, but help other successful women get control of their cravings and never feel deprived while they’re doing it. She's a leader in her field and a beacon for ambitious busy women who want to become the best version of themselves. I am sure you will feel electric after hearing her story!

We all know that quote - 'the only things that are certain in life are death, taxes and change'. Whilst we laugh and agree, we often get tripped up by the third thing... change. In this short episode I chat about how conscious and unconscious reactions to change and how this reflects and reveals our level of personal leadership evolution.
Listen and find out which of three levels you are on.
I was delightfully shocked at how powerful my next guest truly is. On 'paper' she looks amazing, but when you meet her in this interview and see the depth of character and human-ness, I think you'll fall in love with her (and be wow-ed at her stories), like I did.
Mia Hewett is a seven figure, business owner, entrepreneur and world class international speaker. But she's not one of those entrepreneurs who has the hustle message. She has a methodology called aligned intelligence. And just those two words together... aligned and intelligence... where there's a huge story behind that. You just got to listen all the way through and enjoy the stories. Oh my gosh, the chicken story... don't miss this.

From being born in a mud hut, her mother dying at birth, then being abandoned at a Nigerian orphanage, Femi's life is a series of fascinating crossroads. She was adopted by an English family and raised in London and went on to have a wonderful career on stage and screen all over the world. Our chat covers all the crossroads that have so far made up her life story - and a challenge for us to look at how we respond to the circumstances in our own lives. You'll also witness, as you listen, a few precious and emotional moments.
Femi is best known for her cult Star Wars role as Oola, the doomed dancer to Jabba The Hutt in Return of the Jedi. She also was an original London cast member in CATS. Whilst she still gets invited to Sci-fi conventions all over the world (yes, she still fits into her Star Wars costume and hasn't aged), she has retrained into architectural design and lives in Denmark with her family.
This is definitely one of my all time...
The other day I was doing a coaching call with someone and they asked,
'Merilyn, now that there's this new ClubHouse social media platform, do we have to get on that now too?'
"Noooooooo", I said... "Not unless it really lights you up"
Listen, if you are marketing online, and who isn't... you'll know that there's pressure from the experts and gurus to be on all the social media platforms...
Do this. Do that.
But think about this for a minute.
How many times have you bought into someones system or methodology, whether literally in terms of a paid course etc, or just hearing them sprout off on social media, and you've had that feeling of , 'gosh, if I don't' do what they are suggesting I am missing out'.
Well, listen to your heart.
It knows best.
If you are coming from a place of:

Yeah, we all know 2020 was... different. And we also know that New Year Resolutions don't have much chance at making it past February. So this episode isn't about 'let's review our year' and set big audacious goals (although that can be fun).
I'm not big on spending hours reflecting back, and I know some self development teachers advocate a review day, but honestly, who has the time. So when my mastermind buddy shared her 321 exercise with me I thought I'd do it myself and share it with you.
