At the age of just 23 years old, today’s guest Sean Bell is one seriously inspiring human. Sean is the runner of Run for Wishes and an ASICS Australia Sound Mind Sound Body ambassador. Sean believes his purpose is to inspire others to chase their dreams now and do more of the things that make them happy.

On February 22, 2019, Sean became the youngest person in the world to run 50 Marathons in 50 Days. That’s an incredible 2,110 kilometres all up to honour the passing of his close friend & to make a difference.

If that doesn’t impress you, in 2022 Sean will be taking off and aiming to become the youngest ever Australian to run 14,000km around Australia. Sean is aiming to finish the run around Australia in around eight months averaging close to 60km’s per day to make the wishes of disadvantaged children come true.

If you are looking for inspiration, you can’t go past today’s guest Layne Beachley AO. In episode 215, I talk to Layne about her incredible career, the highs and lows and the lessons she has learnt over the years in and out of the surf. The thing that I loved most about this podcast with Layne is how down to earth and relatable she is for people of all ages.

Layne has recently launched the “Awaken Academy’ which I absolutely love as well. The title really sums it up perfectly, the No Bullsh*t Transformation. The course is unlike any other online course. Why? Because you are learning from a 7-time world champion surfer who has failed brilliantly and continues to win at life. Here is your code word ‘Awake10’ that Layne has generously created so you can receive 10% off her brand new course. Check it out on the link below. Thanks so much for your time, energy and passion in this interview Layne.

What does success look, sound or feel like? This is a question that Kyle Wood my good mate, and I have been chatting about for a while. Kyle is one of the smartest business owners I know and also is now a great friend of mine. In 2016 I reached out to Kyle through email with a crazy idea that we could meet up and create a podcast together. I had followed Kyle’s work online for years, and really admired what he had been able to create, and the impact it was having globally. Since that first email in 2016, we have formed a great bond and also a cracking podcast called ‘Lead Your Tribe’.

Just like this weekly podcast, Kyle and I release a weekly episode for anyone who wants to build a business, tribe or following. Last weeks episode was so powerful that I had to share it here today. The reason it was so powerful is that 2020 has allowed us to change goals, ideas and the vision for the future. With this, I feel this means what we class as being successful has changed as well. Join Kyle and myself as we dive into this huge topic on today’s podcast.

Welcome to episode #213 with Dr Andrew Leech. Andrew believes every child deserves comprehensive, quality healthcare starting at the local GP. Children’s health is evolving, and the role of the GP is more significant than ever, supporting families on their journey, walking with them, understanding their needs, finding the right pathway.

The complexity of children’s needs has expanded beyond the simple day to day problems. As we learn more about the effects of a child’s early development and influences, we have come to realise we can do so much to make a difference. We can intervene earlier; we can change the trajectory of that child’s entire life. Andrew considers himself a kids GP and feels his calling or purpose in life is focused in this direction.

Andrew works as an ‘everyday GP’, but his interests have become more focused on improving health and mental health outcomes for children and their caregivers. Following graduation from medical school at the University of Notre Dame, Fremantle, Andrew has achieved the FRACGP and completed further studies with the child health diploma. Andrew continues to advise both the RACGP and now also Emerging Minds as part of their course development. Andrew is also the host of the very insightful ‘The Kids Healthy Network Podcast’.

This week I am delighted to have not only one of the best people I know back on the show but also my cousin and someone I am incredibly proud of, Ryan Sidebottom. Ryan is a professional cricketer in the UK and plays for Warwickshire Cricket Club. This is the second time I have had Ryan on the show. If you would like to listen to his upbringing and his story from growing up in Victoria, Australia, to now playing first-class cricket in the UK, you can listen to episode #80 of the podcast.

With the world changing in all professions this year due to COVID19, I thought it would be fantastic to share what that has been like through the eyes of a full-time professional sportsperson. As well as talking about the highs and lows that have made up 2020 for Ryan, we will also have a laugh and a lot of fun in this weeks episode.

I am extremely excited to share this week’s superstar guest, Bianca Chatfield with you all. After taking the sporting world by storm, Gold medal-winning netballer Bianca Chatfield’s journey from professional athlete to leading media personality and business owner is indicative of her vivacious nature, dedication and professionalism across all fields.
Following her debut as an 18-year-old for the Australian Diamonds netball team, Bianca quickly established a name for herself as one of the toughest defenders in the sport. During her time on the netball court, Bianca endured some tough times but also enjoyed great success; winning both gold and silver medals at the Commonwealth Games alongside a host of premiership victories and awards. A celebrated athlete and excellent communicator, Bianca fast became one of the prominent voices in Australian netball. Since her retirement from the sport in 2015, Bianca has continued to focus on her growing media presence, pursuing numerous exciting opportunities across television and radio.
Bianca’s passion and advocacy for empowering women and girls led her to write her first book, Game On which expanded into the online mentor program, The Ignition Project. This personal project seeks to empower women to identify their passion, understand self-leadership and enable them to get the best out of themselves – across all aspects of life.
These days you will find Bianca in various media and leadership roles. She regularly features on House of Wellness (Ch7), hosts Women’s Footy (ch9), commentates the Netball (ch9) and Softball as well as talking sport on Offsiders (ABC).
Possessing a wealth of knowledge and expertise across multiple fields, Bianca is a sought-after, keynote speaker and facilitator, focusing on the leadership of teams and leading yourself.
In 2018 Bianca took a leap of faith out of the sporting world and into reality tv with her friend and former teammate Carla, they teamed up as a dynamic duo on The Block, showcasing their impressive home renovating skills building an apartment in The Gatwick, St.Kilda.

This week I have an absolute beauty for you all. Aiden Blizzard was mostly known for his massive hitting of a cricket ball around the world, but its the journey and the lessons he has learnt along the way that has shaped the legend that is he today.
This episode shows what resilience and determination really look like. Aiden’s career has seen him hitting sixes all over the globe. He has played for The Adelaide Strikers, Canterbury, Hobart Hurricanes, Marylebone Cricket Club, Mumbai Indians, Rajshahi Division, South Australia, Sydney Thunder, Tasmania, Victoria and the Mighty Shepparton Youth Club.
This episode is a lot of fun, as well as insightful with Aiden sharing several storeys and lessons that will help everyone as we navigate through a testing 2020. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did in interviewing Aiden.
