I absolutely loved this conversation with Olga who blends a wonderful mix of deep experience in neuroscience and a deep passion for developing love-based cultures.Olga offers a wonderful description of vulnerability, we go deep into emotion, fear, self-awareness, mindset, loyalty, purpose and just so much more.  I learned so much from Olga during this discussion and I am confident you will also.Olga can be contacted via the following means:LinkedIn - - - LOVE people. I believe we are walking miracles and as such we all possess our own special gifts. I also believe that it is our responsibility, to share those gifts with the world. That is how we repay to the universe the investment it made in our creation. It’s the Law of Economics at its core as Napoleon Hill stresses in his book Think and Grow Rich written in 1937 - “you don’t get something for nothing.”I believe that an organization is a group of people that come together bringing their unique gifts to solve a job to be done with the world. Only when everyone in the organization can bring his/her unique gifts to the table in a wholeheartedly way, while allowing others to do the same, will that organization solve that job to be done as a synchronized symphony - creating its own unique melody for others to receive. Because the universe provides us with the perfect vessels that carry those unique gifts, we owe it, to create this melody as MUCH as possible and share it with as MANY others as we can in the BEST way we know possible. That is our responsibility as an organization and since we cannot get something for nothing, if we do NOT comply, the universe will come back to collect in the form of dissatisfied customers, poor service reviews, profit losses, inability to remain competitive, poor employee morale and eventually the end of its relevance and existence.--- Send in a voice message:

I just loved this conversation with Oleg who has dealt with his own range of challenges as he grew up to become the motivator and agent for positive change that he now is via his work and live events.We had a wonderfully rich and deep conversation around beliefs, vulnerability, awareness, mindset, belonging, courage, curiosity and so much more.Oleg's upcoming events include 'The Courage to be You' which is just one of the best names of an event I have heard and I would ask that you check this and his other events out. can be contacted via the following means:Website -  - - - connect@overcomingodds.todayBio:His start in life was inauspicious.

At 24 years old, he began his journey of helping others live the life they have always dreamed of, despite their hardships and misfortunes by allowing them to recognize the uniqueness and worth within their own story.--- Send in a voice message:
I really enjoyed this deeply insightful and diverse conversation with Eleanor Snare who has the wonderfully affectionate title of Business Witch who focuses on Getting Artists and Writers Organised with mindset coaching, operations advice + marketing expertise.Eleanor's insight, however, crosses every profession and every human being for me.  She shares what vulnerability means to her;  we discuss the power of intuition, non-violent communication, awareness, courage, emotions, leadership and so much more.Eleanor can be contacted via the following means:Email - hello@eleanorsnare.comWebsite - - - described what I do as 'art counselling'. Someone else said it's 'sparkly PRINCE 2'.It's a mixture of coaching, mentoring, consultancy and educational techniques. It's bringing you ideas from years of marketing and communication experience. It's having someone who gives a shit about you, your work and believes creativity is going to be what saves our world.My goal is to help you feel confident and organised so that you can get on with developing and sharing your creative gifts.What holds creative people back is not a lack of Instagram skills, networking nerves, procrastination over blog posts or any of that fiddling nonsense.It's their level of self-belief.We've been encouraged to think creativity isn't 'useful' to the world.Bullshit. It's crucial. It's essential. It's what this is all FOR.So I tend to work with the people I think are going to change the world: artists, writers, makers and creative folk who feel frustrated, unhappy, confused and want someone to support them in making their dreams a reality.I generally work with them one-to-one for about six to twelve weeks, as this gives them the accountability they need as well as ensuring they see the big changes they really want to see.(Although they tend to see changes immediately after the first session, and I do one-off sessions too).Creativity is why we are here. It's what brings vibrancy to life. Otherwise, it's all bank balances and salad.I want to help more creative people get more of their gifts out into the world so we can change it for the better.--- Send in a voice message:
