Ep 18: Charlotte Carr on Rejection, Resilience and Surrendering To The Journey  

Our fear of rejection is what holds most people back from stepping into their true purpose and potential. It’s an understandable and natural human instinct to want to be safe and loved, rather than be vulnerable and risk people not liking or approving of us. Which is one of the biggest reasons why I love today’s guest Charlotte Carr so much. Right back from her career as an actress on many of Australia’s most loved TV series including Offspring, Home and Away and Underbelly. Charlotte was following her dreams and facing the inevitable rejections that are part of an actors job with auditions. Then Charlotte was cast in her greatest role – becoming a Mother to her beautiful baby boy Willow. This was the beginning of a big journey into whole foods and healing foods. A journey that helped heal her little man’s compromised immune system, reverse toxicity and illness, and enabled him to heal and thrive. Like many Soulpreneurs, Charlotte’s passion for helping other parents through the same challenges was born and a new path and purpose followed. Not long after, her recipes and approach was celebrated and shared by high profile health advocates. So much so that it ended up in the centre of an international media storm. In this raw and personal interview, Charlotte reflects about the experience, growth and lessons including: We go back to the beginning of Charlotte following her dreams; from becoming a performer, entertainer and actor. Early experiences of rejection and how it developed into resilience. Charlotte’s personal breakdown that lead to her breakthrough - and the purpose and path that lit up as a result. Surrendering to the journey of your path, rather than focusing on the final destination. Charlotte’s seachange; and how to know when it’s time for your change or move. Advice for mothers who are feeling called into another purpose alongside their parenting. How our purpose can be simple and right in front of us.

Ep 07: Luke Hines on Goal Setting  

What’s your take on goal setting? How do you get clear on what you want to achieve and reach in your career, business and life? Goal setting or planning creates a motivating and inspiring road map to a fulfilling future. A recent study through a Harvard MBA Program showed that a tiny 3% of their graduates who had clear, written goals were earning TEN TIMES the amount of the other 97% of their class who didn’t have clear goals. Crazy right? So there is proof of the power of goal setting. I’m not saying that money is everything, there are many more measurements of success to be considered. Although I know in my own life that those friends or clients or students who do set goals, tend to stay clearer and more focused and confident on what they want in life. They are less likely to get side tracked and follow every new bright shiny thing along the way. When we don’t have goals or a general plan, not only are we kinda in the dark, but our partners or teams and people in our lives don’t know how to best support us. When we can show them the clear dreams and goals of what we’re trying to reach, it helps them understand us. For me I love to have a vision board with key images and words that show how I want my life to look and feel. And I also have a piece of paper with the list of a handful of things I want to have acheived in six months time. They sit next to each other above my desk. I also break them down into weekly and monthly goals and guide posts as I go. And if a particular goal or intention or plan isn’t feeling good anymore, it can always be changed. We evolve and grow and things change. In those circumstances, the goal posts and plans and vision boards get a spruce up. So what is your goal setting process? We had a great chat with Soulpreneur teacher Luke Hines about his awesome post-it approach and so many other great tips and insight you will love. So first a little more about my dear friend Luke who is probably one of my favourite foodie and recipe developers. Luke is all about celebrating real food that tastes phenomenal, and he believes it should be something everyone can enjoy by making it fun, sustainable and delicious. With his down to earth, back to basics approach, his background in health and fitness combined with his successful stint as a finalist on Australia’s #1 hit TV program My Kitchen Rules, and kicking butt as the trainer on Australia's Next Top Model, his contagiously positive energy has seen him release six top selling Clean Living cookbooks, and even working with Angelina Jolie as a trainer and food consultant. I’ve personally worked with Luke on a bunch of tours and projects, and he is a favourite teacher in our Soulpreneurs program. So let’s dive in chatting with Luke about: Goal setting strategies How to gain clarity on who we truly are and what we want Self care and digital detox for online entrepreneurs Attracting your first clients in a crowded marketplace

Ep 06: Rachel MacDonald on Soulful Social Media  

How can we use social media in our business in a way that feels good? How do we build and connect with an abundant online audience in an authentic way? And do we really need to be across all the digital and social media hubs to create a successful business? We recorded this exclusive Soulpreneur Sessions episode due to popular demand and request. Our special guest Rachel MacDonald will answer all of your questions and so much more in this awesome episode. Rachel is a writer, coach, speaker, seeker. She guide passion-fuelled women out of fear and uncertainty, and into lives, blogs and businesses they love (and truly desire).

Ep 05: Denise Duffield-Thomas on Money Mindset and Mantras  

What do you think is the most common block or self sabotaging that most Soulpreneurs share? If you said anything along the lines of self worth or self value or anything related to money.. you are absolutely correct. Which is why this episode is so important. I believe that you deserve to live an abundant and prosperous life, doing what you love and were born to do in the world. All the most successful Soulpreneurs I've worked with over the years, from New York Times Best Selling Authors to Celebrity Chefs to #1 Charting Singers and Artists.. all have one thing in common, that they value the work they are doing in the world.. they believe they are worth it. They believe they deserve to get paid, and get paid well for the work they do and the joy they create. You do too. We'll continue discussing this across several episodes in Soulpreneur Sessions. Starting with this one featuring our resident money mindset mentor from the Soulpreneurs course, Denise Duffield-Thomas. As a best-selling author of “Lucky Bitch” and “Get Rich, Lucky Bitch” Denise gives a fresh and funny road-map to create an outrageously successful life and business. Denise helps people release their fear of money, set premium prices for their services and take back control over their finances. We're going back to basics. A place and process that too many of us skip over. We're talking about believeing that you are allowed to make money - good money - doing what comes easily to you and is enjoyable to you. That thing that you kinda feel guilty charging for because it's a joy or really natural. For you that might be cooking, or creating art or writing, or helping people get fit or helping them with their problems, whether it be their relationships or health right through to their computer issues or whatever it is that comes naturally to you. Just because it's easy for you, doesn't mean you don't deserve to get paid. Our dream as soulpreneurs is of course to do what we love, and to make a living doing what we love and would do even if we weren't getting paid. Yet the flipside of that is just because you FEEL that way, doesn't mean we don't deserve to get paid to do that. In this episode we'll talk about: why we may sabotage our abundance (and how to fix it!) the balance between giving and receiving debunking the myth that "it's not spiritual to be wealthy" how our abundance allows us to help more people positive money mantras that can be used as pattern disruptors why it's okay to have negative thoughts around money and how to work through it how to approach awkward money conversations in business pricing and valuing our products and services attracting clients who are eneregtically aligned to our pricing and value It's your time to dive right in now with talking about the most common limiting beliefs and blocks around money for Soulpreneurs.

Ep 04: Sarah Wilder on the Steps into your Purpose  

How do I decide on which direction or path to take towards my purpose? Getting the clarity to decide on just one thing, or courage to take that significant step forward is what holds many of us back. Which why our Soulpreneur teacher Sarah Wilder shares some tips and steps you can take today. Drawing from Sarah’s own experiences as the Boss Goddess behind The Fifth Element Life, a sacred online store connecting body, mind and spirit, and home of the ever-popular Mandala ring range. Wise beyond her years, Sarah combines her love of  nature and design to intuitively create conscious talismans, products, workshops  and services to connect kindred sisters with the path of their spirit. This is the first of a series of Soulpreneur Sessions episodes that feature Sarah. Upcoming eps include creativity, protecting your energy and work, spirit animals and balancing babies with business.
