These notes enabled her to rebuild herself and her heart. She made them while in her Mum’s care after a lengthy hospital stay. A month later, she had a job opportunity in the US. Despite her fear, Claire took the job, believing it to be her way forward.But only weeks into her new role in a new country, she found herself being sexually harassed by her boss.

Seeking some light-hearted relief, Claire took her Gratitude Glass Jar to the New York Now Trade Show.

Our guest for this episode of the podcast is the editor and owner of Surfing Life Magazine, Ray Bisschop.Ray has been described as a “visual marketing genius” by some of his peers. He’s also a designer, photographer, loving husband and devoted Dad who started surfing about 35 years ago.In fact, surfing lit the spark for an interest in all things creative. These two elements combined have led Ray on a three-decade journey to become owner and publisher of Surfing Life magazine, But he had his fair share of challenges in between. He spent 30 years dreaming of the day he could for a blue-chip surf mag like Surfing Life. The lesson? Do not give up on your dreams. There is so much wisdom packed into this episode of the podcast along with some ripping yarns. We cover: The definition of a creative and what is an entrepreneur?30 years later, never give up on your dreams.The most sustainable thing you can do when it comes to work…How budding surf photographers and writers can get published in a mag like Surfing Life.The difference between print and digital media – kind like coffee makers and instant coffee!Plus, so much more…About Ray Bisschop:Ray dreamt about working at Surfing Life magazine for the last 30 years. Starting out as a graphic designer who'd always surfed, he thought there could be nothing better than working in the same field as your passion. Thirty years later, Ray is doing precisely that.He’s seen it all in his long career, from working as an analog designer to web, photography, video, and social media, finishing up as a Creative Director before taking on his current role. The one takeaway Ray has from this whole experience is... “never give up on your dreams.”Ray is a firm believer that the more we learn about technology and ourselves, the more we understand how certain things can never be replaced like a mother's warm hug, a cold glass of beer, and the visceral effect a print magazine has on readers. Connect with Ray Bisschop on:Website:              https://www.surfinglife.com.au/LinkedIn:              https://www.linkedin.com/in/raybisschop/?originalSubdomain=auFacebook:           https://www.facebook.com/raybisschopInstagram:          https://www.instagram.com/raybisschop/Twitter:                https://twitter.com/raybisschop/ Catch Surf Coast Creatives on:Website:              https://surfcoastcreatives.com/Facebook:           https://www.facebook.com/surfcoastcreatives/Instagram:          https://www.instagram.com/surfcoastcreatives See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

No wonder she feels so at home and connected with the sheer beauty of Victoria's dynamic landscapes. Romy is now fortunate enough to be living in Torquay, part of the Surf Coast, a backyard full of iconic surf beaches and rugged, untamed landscapes.Through her photos, Romy wants to tell a story of tides turned, of sun-dried land, and light dancing upon wave tops, combining a love for the ocean and creative imagery.Romy is still that little girl from Dutton Way, excited to see what magic Mother Nature unfolds… She wakes up to her alarm, hearing nothing more than the local cockatoo's, grabbing her camera bag, coffee, and off she goes in search of a location that catches her eye and waits to see what beauty unfolds before her lens.Creating art pieces that not only bring the beach to different homes but encapsulate the delight of texture, colour depth, and feeling.Connect with Romy Roache on:Website:              http://romyphotographer.com.au/Facebook:           https://www.facebook.com/Romyphotographer/Instagram:          https://www.instagram.com/romyphotographer/ Catch Surf Coast Creatives on:Website:              https://surfcoastcreatives.com/Facebook:           https://www.facebook.com/surfcoastcreatives/Instagram:          https://www.instagram.com/surfcoastcreatives See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Really excited to sit down for a chat today with the founder of Natural Harry in Barwon Heads, Harriet Birrel. Harriet, or 'Harry,' is the creative dynamo behind 3 best-selling books called Natural Harry, Whole and Home. Her first 2 books were self-published and her final book has been picked up by a publisher along with her 2nd title, Whole by Natural Harry. Learn about Harry's life as a full-time creative and her inspiration for living a humble life on the coast. Harry opens up about her childhood as well and takes us through the transition from fashion designer to recipe designerThis is a great story of following your gut and a primer for those who want to publish their own book someday.She has an infectious energy and was so fun to talk too albeit from Queensland where Harry and her (growing!) family are stuck due to new border restrictions. Tune in right to the end and let us know what you thought of the episode on iTunes. Ben & JessSurf Coast CreativesP.S. Become an official fan of the podcast with our new Patreon page. Check it out!
