    Episode #400: From Fijian Refugee to Billion Dollar Supplement Empire with Izhar Basha

    From humble beginnings with a small supplement retail store in Randwick, Izhar Basha has gone on to create and head internationally recognised and celebrated Australian supplements brand, EHPlabs. After an autoimmune disease diagnosis forced Izhar to leave a successful law career, his mission has been to help people focus on their health and wellbeing.
    Izhar was one of the first in the business sector to utilise the power of social media and his flagship product OxyShred has been hailed as the world’s number 1 thermogenic fat burner. Whilst being family focused with two young girls of his own, Izhar continues to develop EHPlabs through the ongoing creation of scientifically backed, high quality products.
    This was a fascinating conversation, and touched on:
    Izhar’s upbringing and his family’s troubles in Fiji Cultivating a mindset that helped him overcome sub-optimal grades to finish top of his class Burning out on 16 hour days at a law firm And how this led him to establish a company that today has an enterprise valuation of almost a billion dollars  We discussed this and a whole lot more, so strap yourself in for my conversation with Izhar Basha.

    Episode #398: Reviving a 200-Year-Old Whisky Distillery with David Prior

    Episode #398: Reviving a 200-Year-Old Whisky Distillery with David Prior

    David Prior is a lifelong entrepreneur. He founded Baroda Packaging, which was acquired in 2007, before turning his eye to yoghurt, with Five:AM Organics, which after just three years in the market was acquired for $80 million.
    A year later, in 2015, David proceeded to invest half of his net worth into the acquisition of Bladnoch Distillery, a 200 year old whisky distillery in the Scottish lowlands that was in administration; destitute and downtrodden, having not produced any Scotch Whisky for almost a decade.
    David saw an opportunity to bring life back, not only to the distillery, but to the people of Bladnoch; after the purchase, he returned jobs to everyone who had lost them and was dedicated to restoring value to the community's history and heritage, empowering them for a successful future.
    This was a fascinating conversation that unpacked some of David’s business philosophies.
    We unpacked:
    1 - why your business doesn’t necessarily need a unique value proposition to be successful
    2 - why David decided to pour all of his money into Bladnoch and a non-for-profit foundation, instead of sailing into the sunset
    3 - how David regulates stress
    4 - what it takes to build a successful FMCG business
    We covered this, and more, so strap yourself in for my conversation with David Prior.

    Episode #397: Gad Saad on Social Justice Politics at Work

    Episode #397: Gad Saad on Social Justice Politics at Work

    Gad Saad is a Lebanese-Canadian evolutionary psychologist at the John Molson School of Business who applies evolutionary psychology to marketing and consumer behaviour. 
    His latest book is The Parasitic Mind: How Infectious Ideas Are Killing Common Sense, and it explores the numerous idea pathogens permeating today’s social landscape, such as, but not limited to post-modernism.
    We covered lots of ground in this rapid fire 30-minute conversation with Saad, including:
    How dangerous fringe ideas are permeating the mainstream The problem with Diversity and Inclusion programs Social media censorship and free speech absolutism Fake news Social justice politics at Google and Spotify Falsification theory The tyranny of the minority How the silent majority can stand up And, why rapper 50 Cent is, apparently, no longer black This was a very important discussion about ideas that hold truth firmly in their crosshairs, and can have devastating consequences on how we work and live if kept unchecked. We can either bury our heads in the sand, or, we can listen, learn, and act, so with that I bring you the one and only, Gad Saad.

    Episode #395: Becoming Financially Well with WeMoney's Dan Jovevski

    Dan Jovevski is an entrepreneur, and founder of WeMoney, an AI-based financial wellness platform set out to increase financial wellbeing for all Australians. The company closed a $2m round during the pandemic, which speaks volumes about how pronounced the problem of financial wellness, or should that be not-wellness is amongst people today.
    This was a fascinating conversation that unpacked Dan’s journey to WeMoney, but also the psychological vulnerabilities that predispose us to making bad financial decisions, and actionable ways we can circumvent them.
    So with that, I bring you the one and only, Dan Jovevski.

One of my staples!

Being a voracious podcast listener I’ve found it necessary to cull and refine what I listen to so I get the biggest bang for buck on my time invested.

Stevie from Future Squared is always on my list of podcasts to listen to. I’ve learned so much from him and his guests, especially regarding enhancing my workplace productivity!
