In Episode 102 I spoke with Anthony Janssen. He’s a chef, restaurateur and businessman who has built three very successful restaurants in Margaret River Western Australia and is in the process of building a fourth. In fact I worked for him when I lived there for the six months back in early 2011. He left a lasting impression on me in how to conduct yourself in business. His stories and lessons have always been at the forefront of my mind as I develop my businesses and strive to be successful. Enjoy!

In Episode 101 I spoke to Whitney. She is a digital nomad who’s making her living reading tarot cards for people online. Prior to becoming a digital nomad she had a highly successful career in New York but felt unfulfill and needed a change. That change came after seeing a documentary on Ayahuasca and she traveled to Peru to investigate. She has done extensive work with the ayahuasca shamans of Ecuador and Peru and talks about the plant medicines guiding her toward this new path. Enjoy!

In Episode 96 we listen to Episode 22 and I give a longer intro on how Rusty's story has inspired and impacted me. Rusty Labuschagne spent 10 years in prison in Zimbabwe for a crime he didn't commit. While in prison he discovered a self inflicted type of mental prison that was making his sentence even more painful and difficult. He discover a way to forgive his accusers and let go of the past. Enjoy!  

“Even when we are not in prison, there are ways in which we imprison ourselves – in sour business partnerships, badly selected careers, being obsessed with ambition, even unhappy marriages. It’s only when you have your freedom completely taken away that you realise that you were actually in prison too.” Rusty Labuschagne

“Freedom is not just not being in prison. Freedom is the ability to make a choice and act on it. Freedom is letting go of what you can’t control. Freedom is forgiveness. Freedom is being free from negativity. Freedom brings health. If you can be free in all areas of your life, then you will reach your full potential.” Rusty Labuschagne
