We are excited to give you a glimpse of real Super Couples taking part in my new book "PressPlay" from my website as of March 14th!!This week's couple Binny & Randi took on the final of the book: Chapter 12's "Get Jiggy With It".Find out how they went!Intro:Piecing tonight’s game together is a childhood joy of mine. “Get Jiggy With It” was the brainchild of the simple and connective pastime between my Mom and I.  We did hundreds of puzzles together and affixed them on our walls as a memory.Apparently, I am not the only puzzle lover in the world: Aussie actor Hugh Jackman “the Wolverine” is famous for his daily puzzles and conviction that the resat of his family will fall in love with them too!My later study in neuroscience would shine a broader lens over the far reaching benefits of puzzling.  Our brain has an inherent tendency to organize chaos and so our childhood flair for locking pieces together is no accident.  It’s just that our adult selves sometimes need a bit more permission to take on the task in later life.Super couple Binny and Randi found a way to play this game while renovating and living out of their home for the past 3 months.  Now that’s commitment!   With 2 children and more than a decade together, they have learned the art of “fit-ting together”.  As only a human-rights lawyer and electrical engineer can…I am looking forward to finding out what happened to you two when you both started puzzling…  Visit my website on  for more information regarding the Relationship Series and the upcoming book launch of "PressPlay" March 2023!
We are excited to give you a glimpse of real Super Couples taking part in my new book "PressPlay" (available for purchase March 2023).This week's couple Aleisha & Hayden took on Chapter 7 called "Vision Boards Brought to Life"Find out how they went! Intro:I have the pleasure this afternoon of speaking with a couple that I have tracked into the stunning hills of New Zealand in order to get their experience of playing Chapter 7 of my book “Vision Boarding Your Common Dreams”.This particular GAME takes some forethought and preparation. It becomes well worth the effort for the focus, clarity and intention it brings to you life and relationship.  Putting your dreams out into the world is a secret ingredient that allows “others” to become cooperative components in its realisation.  How can people help you, if your dreams remain tucked into the recesses of your imagination?? Popular American Life Coach Martha Beck furthers this by stating: “The (vision)board itself doesn't impact reality; what changes your life is the process of creating the images—combinations of objects and events that will stick in your subconscious mind and steer your choices toward making the vision real.”She continues on to state, that the key is “Regularly picturing delights that don't yet exist, emotionally detaching from them, and jumping into action when it's time to help the miracles occur.”So, who better to bring this Game to life than Aleisha Cootes, a woman that inspired me more than a decade ago to fall more in love with the focus of couples and relationships.After much world travel, her and husband Hayden, married 15yrs, moved back to their homeland of New Zealand and brought their dream to life by building their family home - to which they added 3 beautiful children who surely make it come alive!I can’t wait to hear how Couple Vision Boarding went for you both after all these years of creating goodness into your life…Kiora you two…  Visit my website on for more information regarding the Relationship Series and the upcoming book launch of "PressPlay" in January 2023!

Bc we weren’t using pre-designed vows, I found the whole experience even more confronting and real.In most countries, your solemn promise is even considered law.  It is that honored and respected in many cultures.This “Vows Brought to Life!” game offers that refreshing opportunity to go back, revisit and infuse who you are as a couple in the here and now – adding a whole new power to your testament.Laughter and joy often spring out as memories of that special day bubble to the surface…In our game debrief tonight, we are getting into it with Aussie couple Emma & Pete, who uttered their vows more than 17 years ago in Mackay, Qld.

When you’ve been in a relationship for a long time, you begin to see how your sleep patterns can begin to be influenced by your partner. Imagine doing a small ‘breathing chant’ that harmonised you and your mate in such a way that your brainwave frequencies come together and for THAT moment in time, it’s a direct match… This form of “one-ness” of sound actually lulls the brain to sleep. How amazing is that?!?Our couple today are actually new Mums and so I am ever so curious how they went with this activity considering they have natural sleep disruption with their new little bubba under a year old! Ladies, thank you for spending some time with us playing the game and debriefing about it – we all remember the rigours of raising a young one whilst also working – and yet, you made time for this…I know why you are such a supercouple!!" Visit my website on for more information regarding the Relationship Series and the upcoming book launch of "PressPlay" in January 2023!

Today, we continue the conversation with a man who was awarded the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for Engineering. Professor James Trevelyan from Perth is well known for his pioneering research on Sheep Shearing Robots from 1975-1993 at the U of Western Australia – where he was awarded many international engineering and robotic awards.He then moved into the research of Landmine Clearing Methods where he made a big impact in countries like Afghanistan, Cambodia, the Balkans, and many Africa countries.He then took on local schools in Islamabad, where together with his father-in-law, they architected toilet access for young kids.And now, as Western Australian of the Year, at the ripe age of 65, he founded “Close Comfort”, where he and his students engineered a personal air conditioning unit which has been made affordable for countries such as Pakistan - which aligns w his belief that safe respite from dangerous heat conditions should be a basic human right.In 2013, his TedTalk titled “Ending Poverty: what engineers can do”, was a real reflection of his commitment to contributing engineering services on behalf of the rights that all humans possess. The Goods on James:Prof. James has always been passionate about creating a positive impact on other people’s lives. He has led quite a journey from being a researcher, an academician, an educator, a world-recognised engineer, an author and so on. At 65 years old, he believed his contribution to solving some of humanity's greatest challenges wasn't over; he started Close Comfort to provide safe access to affordable cooling solutions to billions of people at risk of exposure to increasingly dangerous heat conditions without warming the planet! On the way, he was awarded the prestigious Engineers Australia medal and was recognised as 2018 Western Australian of the Year in the Professions category. Close Comfort is just another example of James's belief that his role as an engineer and as a human is to give back to communities.·       In the past, he has developed sheep shearing robots that would cover the eyes and shield sheep from the shears cutting the wool while helping them fall asleep. The innovation was awarded the engineers equivalent of the Nobel prize and put him in a position "to devote the rest of my career to researching problems that truly mattered, that would help solve some of the tough challenges facing humanity".·       Instead of retiring after reaching the top of his engineer career, he turned his expertise and knowledge to clearing landmines from countries like Afghanistan, Cambodia, the Balkans in southeast Europe, and many countries in Africa.·       Or in term of being literally safe from harmful heat conditions: in Pakistan and most parts of the globe, air conditioning is costly, and for the few that can afford this luxury, the energy-hungry appliances prove too much for the energy grid to handle, leading to power outages. So, Pr James launched Close Comfort at 65 y.o, believing that safe respite from dangerous heat conditions, far from a luxury, should be a basic human right. Contact James:         Website:         Close Comfort:        Books:  @books Go to to become part of this growing community of DREAMERS!

It took a player 10yrs her Junior to sweep her up out of retirement and reach the Athens Olympics to score the best ever result in Canadian female beach volleyball history!Now married with 2 daughters, Guylaine has devoted her life to helping athletes be supported through their own traumas in sport.  As co-founder of “Sport-Aide” (loosely translated as “Sport Help”), she rallied more than $2M from the Quebec government to bolster her program and passionately charged up a “help line” for athletes.  Finally, being able to provide the lifeline she never felt she could call!As her own healing journey continues with its natural highs and lows, I am honoured to be speaking to a woman that has come through the ashes of her own abuse to be able to create not only change for future athletes but more importantly, a space for healing… The Goods on Guylaine:Guylaine Dumont (born October 9, 1967 in St-Etienne-de-Lauzon, Quebec) is a Canadian female beach volleyball player.

Habitat For Humanity had been a favourite NFP Organisation since the Northridge Earthquake in Los Angeles 17 January 1994. Retirement from the Education sector allowed time to become more supportive where I became involved in starting up the Brisbane Chapter, served as Chairman of the Queensland affiliate and then stepped into a management role after the 2011 South East Queensland floods.May 2013 - Having spent 2 years as Development Manager for Habitat For Humanity Brisbane, I spread my wings and moved into a role where I can be of service to a wider community of people needing safe secure housing. My passion has not changed. In fact it has deepened to a point where I believe the current Habitat model is not effective in fully addressing the problem. We need to get back to a more "grassroots" approach in line with Millard Fuller's original dream of partnership housing - a place where people are more important than personalities - a place where God's work is not corporatised - a place where we can be more flexible and nimble in helping the vulnerable members of our community.September 2013 - Chief Operating Officer of Fuller Center for Housing, Queensland, Australia, following the lead of Millard Fuller, the founder of both Habitat for Humanity and Fuller Center for Housing, in getting back to a more grassroots approach to tackling the problem of substandard housing.April 2018 - I am continuing on the work started all those years ago by Millard Fuller.

Beginning all the way back to their first period. As a result, many women are suffering from gynaecological issues, fertility problems, hormone imbalances, menopausal symptoms to hysterectomies.She believes it’s the birthright of every woman to know the knowledge of the womb.She is a nurturing and passionate doctor who has extensive knowledge and 17 yrs. experience in the health industry. This gives her a deep understanding of Western Medicine Science, Eastern Medicine and Energy Medicine which she combines together to transform people’s lives. She has created programs with a new spiritual technology that is strengthening and configuring the true potential of our womb and reproductive health of women and men.  Her healings are awakening the cells of the body, light codes and DNA. Activating the life force energy of the body to co create and birth your reality into existence in all areas of your life.  Her program reconnects parts of ourselves that are fragmented, disconnected, in pain, suffering, alone and feel separated in the world to come together and be whole again. Healing in ways that open up different dimensions of womb consciousness within. Activating both men and women to return to the beginning of who they truly are. The divine balance of the divine feminine and sacred masculine within. Contact Dr Tharshini:         Website:         Insta: @dr_tharshini/        Facebook: @drtharshini/... Go to to become part of this growing community of DREAMERS!

Today, we continue the conversation with a “launch coach”.  “What is that?” you might ask?? Stick with me…we will get there…Taliah-Kate Byron is only 30 years old and I say that bc she dove into the multi-billion $$ self-development and coaching industry when she was only 17.   Getting stellar grades in Grammar school growing up…she chose a path less traveled than the oft worn path of University - she ”designed” her own education.  Whether it was a degree in NLP, experiential game design, Vipassana meditation, speech and drama or micro business design…she kept growing herself.I met TK when a chapter of my life as a pro athlete was coming to a close and I was upskilling with NLP.  I was older than she is now and she was only in her teens!  I was struck by that.  Her level of engagement and participation was inspiring and I was drawn to the spark that she had brimming in her.We have traveled many a PD road together (me always being 15 or so years older than her) and here we are again, but this time, she’s my COACH.  She is helping me craft my offer and “launch” my new signature coaching program for women just like me called The Awakened Mama.  I have learned so much from this clever wiper snapper…but her coaching goes so much deeper than what her smart brain can produce.  She “tunes in” when she needs to nail a brief, she has “mental clearing processes” before she does an ‘impact post’, she can write copy that just lands with people, and she creates marketing templates that make it easy for someone like me to step my words into – it just comes to life!Clearly, I’m a fan!  And I know after you hear more about her, you will be too!The Goods on TK:With over a decade in the personal development industry, my love for this work started at 17 and quickly became a passionate side-hustle. I started keynote speaking and volunteering at youth leadership camps across Australia. When those camps struggled to get ongoing funding, it became my mission to learn everything about marketing so that coaches who were making a difference in people's lives could keep their doors open by having money in their back pocket. Contact TK:         Facebook: @taliahkate         LinkedIn: @tkbyron         Website: www.badassbeings.comGo to to become part of this growing community of DREAMERS!
Today, we continue the conversation with Amazon gurus Jamie Paros & Michael Fenech.  These boys have come together to form the much-acclaimed and engaged Network Group End Game: focusing on supporting the Amazon Selling community. With Jamie posting a record year of close to 7-figures in 2019 selling on Amazon and Michael having over 700 SKU's being sold in the US via Facebook and Google shopping – their brands are respected and looked up to.It hasn’t always been lucrative and easy for these boys – Jamie working 14hr days driving a truck and Michael trying his hand at many a StartUp in the tech space before hitting the “success button”.But they have discovered this world of “Micro-Brands” and if I’m honest…I don’t even have a clue about - it’s a whole new language that I am looking forward to learning more about.As the economy proves to challenge over these next 2-5 years - more and more people are searching for different ways to create side-income.  I am committed to providing alternate ways for people to earn additional money that loosens the squeeze they are under. And I do lean toward those methods that sit outside the conventional 9-5 “trading time for money” space.  Shall we dive in boys??The Goods on Jamie:From a young age, it was clear that Jamie had that entrepreneurial spirit built into his DNA. He started a transport business at age 22 and soon realised that he could not sustain such long hours swapping time for money. Too much of his time was spent away from his family. Jamie's hunger and motivation for change led him to discover the Amazon FBA business model. He intuitively knew that Amazon would help him leave the daily trucking grind behind. Jamie's incredible work ethic and "Get Shit Done" war cry led him to become one of the real rock stars in the Amazon world, turning over $1,000,000 in sales in the USA. Now, Jamie is giving back to the Amazon community and also reinventing supply chain processes through various software ventures. The Goods on Michael:Michael Fenech Michael has gained extensive business experience in both tech and e-commerce across the globe. He has successfully raised capital in the US and Australia, run successful e-commerce sites, and has partnered with some of the biggest companies in the world. Michael is also fortunate to have been mentored by some of the biggest names in tech. His e-commerce experience has come from having over 700 SKU's being sold in the US via Facebook and Google shopping. Michael then ventured into Amazon and by using his incredible product research skills, found a product that was an instant winner. Michael now has a range of products being launched under his well-respected brand. Contact “The Boys”:         End Game Network:         Michael on Insta: @michaelfenech (Daily BUSINESS LESSONS)         Website: Go to to become part of this growing community of DREAMERS!
