Julie Cross Podcast Show

Julie Cross Podcast Show


Welcome to the ‘Julie Cross’ Podcast SHOW! What you can expect when you stop by is that you will be empowered, energised or entertained… or perhaps all three at once. This will happen through the sharing my thoughts, learning and reflections. It will happen through storytelling, sharing both my stories and the stories of others, it will also happen through interviews with people, maybe not famous people but people on the street. It is going to grow and change as we do and as I get to know what you want to hear. But what I can promise you is that no matter the content, my vision will always be take you on a ‘feeling’ journey leave you ‘feeling’ glad that you stopped by. Enjoy! And I look forward to reading your comments and thoughts.


Keep it simple not complicated  

A chat with Waz on how complicated it can get. Let's stop overcomplicating the simple. Simple as that... or is it?

To carers we applaud you  

It is National Carers Week... so to all those unpaid carers looking after loved ones in their homes... we applaud you. They won't get the recognition that our 'famous' actors get or the applause our sports people get both they demonstrate love in action and are the glue that holds a community together.... National Carers Week #carers2016

Waz's opinion of the poem  

Now let's get a mans opinion and perspective on that poem and what men want, women want and what men think women want and women think men want! 

Being single  

Being Single.  Well I really didn't expect to find myself single at my age, it wasn't in my life plan but sometimes life has other plans. And like all ages in our lives and in the different stages there are observations made, lessons to be learnt and a sense of humour to be maintained. So here is a bit of all of that from this 'single' girl/women/widow/spinster! Hehe

r u ok_ - 6-09-2016 12.34 pm  

I know we have just had R U Ok day... but this is an important message for everyday!

Let's chat not just about how important it is to ask the question, but also how important it is that you are prepared to answer the question honestly, because that has to be the first step.

Hello Warrick, who the hell is Warrick?  

Love you to meet my mate Warrick, otherwise known as Woz... he will be joining me now and again to talk about man stuff, girls stuff and explore some stuff from a mans point of view!

Women Poem  

I wrote this poem when my son Jack came up to me one day and asked,

"So Mum, just what do women want?"... good question Jack and it just may be worth exploring because we have been on quiet a journey trying to find out what we want. 

Rant - Excuses  

Oh I get so tired of listening to myself sometimes, listening to myself make all those damn excuses about why I didn't do it, why I didn't exercise, why O don't eat right... and I go on and on and think up all the reasons why it is not my fault. And then I stop, give myself a good talking too, because maybe it is not all that complicated and I simply need to stop with the excuses! Enough!

Customer Service... just add more of you!  

Sometimes we just over complicate things. Awesome customer service really is very simple. It is not necessarily about better computer systems and more high tech innovations. In a high tech world we need to be high touch. It really is simply about adding more of YOU into all that you do. 

Oh, she should be so lucky!  

Luck... what is that really. When somebody is doing well, is happy, well it is easy to throw around that lucky word. Well luck is really about what you do with the life you have and what comes your way and how you view what has happened to you. Because as it turns out some of your most challenging times could have in fact made you so very lucky!

OMG, she got herself a new haircut!  

I recently go myself a new haircut. I went short... so it was a dramatic change I guess, but I got to tell you I really wasn't prepared for the reaction.

Social media was buzzing... one of my most 'liked' and most commented on photos! And then people saying they wish they could get a new haircut or how brave I was... friends, it is just a haircut and that got me thinking about all the things we don't do because of, what could be considered, irrational 'fear'. 

The gift of praise  

As we increase in age we decrease in the praise we give. We give praise so freely to toddlers and young children... so when did we start looking more closely at what they can't do and not what they can? Children give praise so freely to the people around them. So when did we start holding back on giving praise so freely to each other as adults? Praise is a wonderful gift to give, in families, in communities and in workplaces.

Give your work the respect it deserves  

How’s work?

Oh and you should hear some of the replies.

How is work, it is great, because I chose to do it and I chose to show up here.

What flows from you will flow to you. If you want things at work to get better then you get better! It’s a bit of a rant!

And we will talk about the employers in another episode!

You have a right to your joy  

I think sometimes we forget that we have a right to our joy no matter what is going on around us.

We don't just wait for joy to show up on the doorstep.

You donǯt wait for it to drop out of the sky.

You simply make a decision to BE joyful today despite the circumstances. Come along and grab a little joy!

The way we say the things we say  

The way you say what you say will influence how you move through your day! I think we forget the power our words have over us, our energy and our lives. In this episode we explore what we say and how we say it and how it affects us!


Own your stage  

I wonder if we realise that we all have a stage that we work or ‘perform’ from and we need to give our best performances every day. And to do that we need to own that stage that we work from, because we all have a SHOW! We the doors open in the morning and the audience walk in (customers), it is time for you to give an opening night performance.

What is this sparkle all about?  

I wear sparkle, I share sparkle, I talk about sparkle. So what is it really all about? Because it is much more than a sequin top… yes, you see it is inside that true sparkle resides. It is your unique personality, it is your courage, your confidence, your authenticity  and your resilience… and so much more. Yes, the world needs more people owning their ‘sparkle’.

Just who does she think she is… My Story.  

Well it should start here shouldn’t it? Just who is this Julie Cross, who does she think she is having her own show and how did she get here! I take you on a journey through the fun times, the tough times and the times that brought me to my knees and the times I got back up. Tears, laughter, love, grief and joy. It is all about living a life!
