EP109 | The Yin & Yang of Leadership

When we think of leadership we often think it's about taking big ACTION. Which is true. But it's only half the story. A great leader also knows when it's time to ALLOW. I call this the yin and yang of leadership, or the feminine and masculine of leadership. Knowing which energy to operate in, and when brings not only balance, but reduces stress and makes for much more creative leadership. This episode explores this topic.

EP106 | From Nurse, To Winemaker To Hemp Farmer - serial entrepreneur Kirsty Harkness

Kirsty is a true serial entrepreneur. When I first worked with her 20 years ago she was moving from award-winning nurse to setting up her own photography business. She now runs not only an award winning photo studio (clients have included the Prince of Wales), but also an award winning vineyard in New Zealand. Her latest venture sees her being the first person in the world to be licensed to grow hemp in vineyards.

This interview will leave you inspired and encouraged - as you hear about her wins and mistakes as an entrepreneur.

Here's a little bit more about Kirsty....

Kirsty is the first person to be licensed for growing hemp in vineyards, and has 2 more years of a 4 year research trial ahead of her. The aim: to prove that the hemp doesn’t take nutrients or vigour from the vines, doesn’t negatively affect wine quality, improves soil organic matter and increases beneficial insect life. Her vineyard produces equivalent to 1 million bottles of premium Sauvignon Blanc each...

EP87 | It's a man's world (or is it?) - interview with Kara Diane Festa

Now this interview is fascinating. I'm chatting with Kara Diane Festa about the masculine and feminine styles of operating in business. She is a now a business coaching who was an engineer and owner of a 8 figure engineering and environmental business for over 20 years. So she well knows how to operate as a women in a man's world. She now is dedicated to supporting other women in business and STEM careers (science, technology, engineering and math, aka “traditionally male-dominated fields”). Kara believes that the old ways of "doing" life and business need to make way for a more compassionate, conscious, connected way of being. 

We talk about:

  • Masculine and feminine working styles - how do we navigate this.
  • Work-life balance - is it real?
  • Being vulnerable and jumping from the known into the unknown world of starting one's own business.

EP81 | Can the real influencers please stand up

Over the last few years a new job title as emerged… ‘Influencer’ 

Born out of Instagram. 

The hashtag #influencer has over 20.6 million posts. 

20.6 million! 

We see it in people’s bios, ‘I’m an influencer’. 

But seriously, saying that is like saying, ‘I have influence, and you don’t’ 

Bollocks.  

In actual fact, even the most introverterted person… 

The term ‘influencer’ is a compliment that is given by others TO you, not a job title, status, position or something for your Instagram Bio!  Its not a self ascribed term. 

It actually makes my skin crawl when I see someone stating ‘influencer’ and it makes me pity them even more when they have only 134 followers and every picture is of them wearing some kind of designer label they hope will notice and make them their brand ambassador! 

I know what you mean though. An Instagram Influencer is...
