This entire podcast stems around one question...
"If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?"
Michelle Cox likes to have unlikely conversations on uncomfortable topics with her guests as she uncovers interesting and sometimes taboo topics.
SUCCESSFUL SINGLE MUMS with Victoria Gibson
If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be? “I’d like to talk about how single mothers can be success minded. I’d like people to acknowledge the challenges and opportunities that come with this.”________________My guest today is a powerhouse of a human - an absolute ball of the brightest energy and sheer delight to be around. Victoria Gibson is a coach to life coaches! She helps life coaches harness their own potential and create profitable careers doing the work they love. She’s such a powerful advocate for others - so much so, that her mantra is.. “I want you to borrow my belief in you, while you build yours.” Boom! How good is that?! Victoria has an interesting story. After finding that being a stay at home Mum wasn’t for her, she left her marriage and her job to pursue a completely new life. After holding down various marketing and management roles in Australia's leading property companies, then jumping out for a brief stint as a stay-at-home Mum, she found herself disillusioned after her return to corporate as a single mother. Longing for an alternative (and more flexible) path, she found the power of social media marketing over a decade ago enabled her to create her own coaching business and never looked back.

LONGTAIL OF GRIEF with Jana Firestone
If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?“Why is the ongoing impact of grief not spoken of more widely? We are expected to get on with life in a short time after a significant loss yet for so many of us, the loss evolves and impacts us in an ongoing way for many years to come. This can be following a death, a relationship breakdown or sudden career loss.”_________Jana Firestone is a passion seeker with an insatiable curiosity and relentless pursuit of answers. She’s dedicated most of her life to understanding, supporting and encouraging people to turn their tragedies into triumphs. As a therapist with a degree in psychology and a Masters in counselling, Jana has spent the last 15 years working intensively with grief and trauma and with young people and their families. Her professional life has been a hearty balance between the intensity and depths of roles in Child Protection and at The Coroners Court of Victoria, and as a therapist in private practice, with professional athletes and in schools. Having lost her mother suddenly at the age of 21, Jana transformed her own tragedy into the driving force behind her success. Blending her therapeutic and creative skills, provided the perfect platform to launch The Curious Life Podcast in 2019. She’s also the author of a new book - Embracing Change. Jana is such a warm yet super interesting woman. Her interest & care for others is so evident when you talk to her, she’s such a beautiful person.

EMOTIONAL STATES with Mark Stephens
If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be?“We all know what it’s like to be angry, sad, fearful, hurt, guilty, bored, frustrated etc. The problem is we often get stuck in these states. Most people have no idea on how to help people snap out of a negative state and flip the switch to a positive state.”________As we ride the rollercoaster of life, we realise that not every day will go to plan, and our positive state may change to a negative one, and vice versa. One minute we may be feeling happy, content, calm, energetic or excited and then something happens to change our state. We end up feeling stressed, frustrated, angry, sad or any one of a hundred other states. This is pretty normal. Imagine if more people knew how to help someone change their state. This is the area of expertise of my guest today, author, meditation and hypnosis expert, Mark Stephens. Mark has transformed many lives, including elite athletes, war survivors, CEOs, Celebrities and thousands of everyday people. Mark created the ground-breaking programs; Think Slim, Think Calm, Think Sleep and Think Quit and the Mind Free app. He’s the author of several books, the latest being Mind Free which is aimed at guiding the reader through mindful self-hynosis. Mark is an irreverent and facinatlng man and I was looking forward to this interview for a while. Please enjoy this incredibly interesting conversation with Mark Stephens.
