All fear is bullshit. It's all in our head. We are not just afraid of failing or rejection as much as we are afraid of hard work.

It's a tough pill to swallow. But it is hard work that you are afraid of. You are afraid of going all out and putting something out in the world that is almost too much of yourself.

I have a solution for you, though....FOCUS ON CONSISTENCY.

If you focus on consistency, then you are asking yourself better questions.

Instead of asking fear-based questions, your mind is focused on getting to the next time you take action. Consistency, ladies and gentlemen, is the key to overcoming fear.

Now for this week’s interview, we have Nick and Gen, my first couple on the show, and they have a podcast called The Great Anomaly.


They travel the world as a couple or as they refer to themselves “ couple-preneurS” and they help other couples, freelancer and entrepreneurs realize the same location independent dream.

For a lot of the listeners, there is always this romantic notion of quitting your life and traveling the world.


Trust me, I have been there, and let me tell you. It is amazing when it happens, but if you have no plan like I did, you will run out of money fast and it will not be a pretty scene.


Nick and Gen are entrepreneurs to start. They made decent a living from affiliate marketing and thus began their journey on the road to entrepreneurship. 


However, they were extremely overworked and their business did not aligned with their goals and purpose as a couple.


In our conversation, they walked us through their exact journey to how they were able to do what they do; live anywhere in the world and have a business to support both of them. 


I have said it many times on the show, these episodes about traveling is not meant to romanticize traveling, but this show is about lifestyle design and being a changemaker, creating a change for others and embracing the changes in our lives.


We have a candid conversation on the reality of this lifestyle and how if you are a couple or single, you can apply their techniques to start creating the freedom that you want to see in your life.


I want to point out, there are no shortcuts and it is certainly not going to happen overnight, but it is  always great to see case studies like Nick and Gen. Being "couple-preneurs", building businesses and traveling the world.

As I reflect on my past year, I realize almost nothing I had planned out went “according to plan”

Isn’t that the simple truth of life. Change is the only constant in the world. 

If we know change is coming, why do we not plan for it? In this episode, I break down how exactly we can do that and be proactive when it comes to change. 

Question of the day - What has been the BIGGEST change for you this year? Let me know in the comment section of the video

Are you going through a transitional period? 

Perhaps you just graduated or suffered a loss of some kind, or maybe its a change in your job or your business. 

Or perhaps you are simply "stuck"

Whatever you are going through, we have been there and we are here for you. 

This week's episode looks to tackle the ever constant issue of change and how we can deal with change in positive ways to make ourselves wiser, stronger and better. 

Solonia Teodros is one of the co-founders of Change School, a learning institute all about change as they facilitate workshops and retreats to help people in transition. 

Their flagship retreat, ChangeVentures, is a 21-day retreat in Bali where people gather to deconstruct old beliefs, reconstruct new ones and apply all learnings towards a more fulfilling life. 

In this episode,  Solonia walks us through exactly what The Change School is, how they came to be, and as well as breaks down the impact the workshops has had on previous attendees. 

Solonia tells us how we can cope with change, some new habits we can all incorporate and gives some great online resources as well.

Stop focusing on being an entrepreneur because it is cool or you want the "lifestyle."

Focus on finding a PAIN and SOLVING a problem for the world. That is how you are going to create value for society.

At the end of the day, society might deem you "an entrepreneur", and that is cool. But stop aiming for that nonsense in the beginning

Deliver value with everything you do and be a hero to someone else besides yourself.

Do you want an unfair advantage in life? 

In doesn’t matter who you are, whether you are a student, a doctor, or a businessman, I imagine that we all want an unfair advantage in life. 

We are featuring Scott Oldford this week from Infinitus.

He specializes in helping entrepreneurs that are at the six figure level go to the next level in their business through, online marketing, strategy and building out marketing funnels.


He won a few awards early on in his career such as top 20 under 20 and was even named top 50 Emerging Leaders in Atlantic Canada.

Since then, he went through 3 massive business failures, survived being in 3/4 of a million dollars in debt, became the author of the book "Connections That Count" and built a seven-figure company in Infinitus

In the episode, Scott teaches us exactly how he was able to do all this as well as give a 6 step framework to discover your unfair advantage.

That’s what it is all about. Knowing your own super power and trying to solve a pain for the world.

This is a great mind shift that I have learnt recently from guests on the show as well as seeing world class speakers live.

Aligning your values to what you say you are going to do. It's honestly that simple. 

If you do not align your values, you are going to be running in circles for a long time.

This week, we have Will Hatton from

He has been travelling around the world for seven years now and first hit the road with just a couple of dollars in his pocket and backpack.


Now, after years of roughing it and working odd jobs to stay on the road, he founded his budget adventure website 'The Broke Backpacker’.

Within the first year, he was published by The BBC, The Daily Mail, Business Insider, Forbes, Yahoo Travel and numerous other publications

He has amassed social media following of over 100,000 followers and used this to catapult himself into the limelight with editors, tourism boards and travel contacts.

He is now sponsored by GoPro, Red Bull, Hostel World and some other prominent names in the travel industry.

The Daily Mail has described him as ‘The Most Adventurous Backpacker in the World’ and he is currently preparing or should I say currently embarking on his most ambitious project to date;

A two year trip from the UK to Papua New Guinea, He wants to go through thirty countries, without the use of any flights.  

Obviously, this is a really badass life that most millennials dream about, so I was really curious to get Will on the show.

In this episode, he literally breaks it all down for us.


How did he start blogging? 

How did he start monetizing on writing? 

How does he get some of these sponsors and businesses to support his cause and trips? 

And of course, Will shared some near death experiences and cool traveling stories from all his adventures. 

Nov 6, 2015

This is a personal episode. It is something that I feel compelled to share.

Validating ourselves and our journey has led me to realize the many ups and downs in my life.

It has led me to embrace all aspects of myself and it is one of the most honest exercises we can do.

I invite you to join me on this episode and explore this side of yourself.

Everyone is always looking for hacks and shortcuts.

The truth is...there are no shortcuts.

There is only things that you do and things that you do not do.

It comes down to how much action you are willing to take.

The biggest habit hack one can use is breaking down habits into bite-size pieces. Instead of trying to go from A to Z in one shot, try just going from A to B. 

Whichever successful habit you are trying to build, start small. Build up the muscles to sustain the new habit.

For this week, we have fellow podcaster, Eric Zimmer from “The One You Feed” Rated one of the top podcast of 2014. 


The name of the podcast could sound a bit confusing, but let me reassure you, it has a cool origin story.


It is based off a Buddhist parable that you will hear me go through with him in the first few minutes. 


Eric first heard it in a recovery setting, and he shares with us his learning journey from then to the entrepreneur he is today.


He has since interviewed some of my heroes and prominent names that I reference all the time, Simon Sinek, Bob Proctor, Chris Guillebeau, Lewis Howes just to name a few.


Eric happens to own a meditation practice as well as coaches others in business so we do cover some diverse topics throughout this short episode.


In the episode, he shares stories and insights about how we can be more present, how to proactively solve our own issues and how we can change our habits.


This might be a short one, but it is filled with tons of actionable steps that you can use TODAY and you guys will hear that within the first few minutes.

How To Be World-Class. 

It is what a lot of individuals want for their careers, their passions, their respective sport, but why is it that only so very few are world-class.

The answer comes down to the fact on whether or not you believe you are world class right now. 

I am not talking about tomorrow or when you finally have "X" amount of money in the bank. I am talking about right now. 

Are you world class right this minute? 

Because counter-intuitive to what most believe, everything starts with that belief of being world-class today.

This week, I thought I would do something differently as I come to you live from the roof of a hotel in the Bay Area.

The episode this week featured Chris Thomson, CEO of Student Works. During the episode, he mentioned that his favourite word is "willingness." It means that you will do whatever it takes to get it done. 

It can represent a goal, a dream or in this case, my podcast episode / video. 

How willing are you to do what it takes? To wake up early? To out-hustle others? To put it all on the line?

Do you want to have greater influence in your life? Do you want to be able to persuade others and have superior social skills?

How? The answer is foundationally set on how you own your story. Do you embrace your flaws? how about your failures? Showing your own vulnerabilities and being an authentic person. 

That is the beginning of influence.

This week, we had the pleasure of having Berni Xiong on the show and I loved her energy from the beginning. What I loved more was the fact that we talked about her failures and how people don’t know how to fail.


I did an old video that got a couple thousand views on the fear of failure. And how failure and success are not a binary notion.

It’s not one or the other. You need one to get to the other. In other words, you need failure to get to success. 

Think back to when we were in school, and IF you were to fail, it would be this massive deal. Something is not right with you. You can’t read fast enough. You are not smart enough. It is always something that is lacking in you. 


Well, schools base everything on the average student. The average learning speed. It’s how they can manage hundreds and sometimes thousands of new students every year.


Well, what worked In school does not necessarily apply to life. It’s just like coaching entrepreneurs. What works in starting your business from 0-100k is not what is going to make the business go from 100k to 500k.


Life is about change. That is what this show is about. How do we embrace that change? How do we fearlessly walk into the unknown.


I encourage you to think about your life. Are you measuring against the average person in society?


Because there is that stat floating around saying 85%,+ of ppl hate their jobs.

Because the average person is just that....average.

Because the average person is not fulfilled 


I am sorry if this is offending certain people, but being average is not cool. Don’t buy into what others are saying that everyone is going to be around average, so just aim average.


If that is your thinking, well, you probably stopped listening to this show a long time ago.


Average is pathetic. That’s really what average is. And we are going to be average if you eat average food, think average thoughts, and do average things.


It does not take a genius to look around and see that there is a skew of wealth in the world. Why is it that 1% of the world own 99% of the money and resources available to the world?


Successful people follow patterns. They know what works and they break-out of the system of what everyone else is doing.


Mark Twain famously said - Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect


So think about it? No need to answer my question of the day or anything like that. But seriously take some time and ponder.

When was the last time you really failed at something? Did you tell others about it? Lewis Schiff wrote in his book business brilliant. 7 out of 10 multi-millionaires would say they are successful because failure is what showed them what they were great at.


Only 2 out of 10 people in the middle class would agree. Well, ask yourself. Do you want to be in the middle class? Do you want to be average?



I am not telling you that you should not be grateful if you are. Or if you happen to be in the middle class.


I am saying – If you want to be great. If being a changemaker or having the ability to make a positive impact in others lives is important to you, you must fail yourself out of the average.


I will say it again. You must fail faster. You must fail smarter. You must fail forward to being out of the average.


It was said during the interview. People who fail more have more attempts and is, therefore, successful by default because they tried more, failed more and the 1 or 2 times they were successful, that’s where it counts.


So don’t be afraid of failure. Embrace Failure. Because you never know what you might learn that will apply into success the next turn around.

She started coaching from her living room with $200 start-up capital, no entrepreneurial background and a lot of ambition.
