    DROWN IN NEGATIVITY OR SWIM IN POSITIVITY with Maurice Goldberg

    DROWN IN NEGATIVITY OR SWIM IN POSITIVITY with Maurice Goldberg

    If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be? “That our experience of the world is a choice. We can find equal dark and light. Equal utopia and dystopia. Equal heaven and hell. Where our focus goes gives us our reality.”________My guest today has been an architect, created and headed up a financial planning business for two decades, then became a coach and mentor of business leaders and for even more diversity thrown in, the past nine years now an acclaimed Artist. Maurice Goldberg leverages the inherent creativity in all human beings to innovate and implement better, faster... & more beautifully. He brings clarity, self-expression and expansive thinking to engage and innovate within organisations and take people beyond what they think is possible. He has created some of the fastest-growing and most forward-thinking businesses in Australia. He has been listed three times in BRW Magazines Fast100, being one of the fastest 100 growing companies in Australia (2004, 2005 and 2007). For over 30 years he’s been the CEO of businesses in Financial Services, Real Estate, Marketing and Public Art & Design where he has been instigating revolutionary thinking.   What makes Maurice unique is his success in both Finance and The Arts which has given him mastery of both analytical left-brain and creative right-brain thinking. He also has decades of facilitating small and large groups to effectively, deep dive into clarity and accelerated engagement and increased ideation. This gives his clients momentum and insights that most organisations struggle to gain.  He has always been creative and often rocks the boat in his pursuit of better ways of doing business. His diverse career has led him to be part visionary, part rebel and part designer and like a great architect asks deeper questions that facilitate evolutionary pathways to success. He says challenges in business and life are design puzzles waiting to be solved by asking the right questions.Evolving smarter happens by creatively unlocking the all too often hidden ideas, potential and passion, locked inside our organisations He is known for his razor-sharp intuitive insights and his uncanny ability to simplify what seems complex. Clients describe his facilitations as insightful, fun, unexpected and mind-blowing and a game changer.In the past decade, he has also been making an extraordinary body of public art exhibited in public spaces, festivals and museums from Sydney to London and the Pilbara to New York. He is best known for his beautiful use of pattern, space, scale and colour and ease in facilitating collaborations with artists, organisations and communities. If that bio doesn’t intrigue you on meeting Maurice, I don’t know what will - let’s dive in!For more information about Maurice, check out these places;-

    NORMALISING FEMALE PLEASURE with Viv Conway

    NORMALISING FEMALE PLEASURE with Viv Conway

    If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be? “I’d like to talk about Sex toys, vibrators, and how we need to normalise female pleasure and the interesting topic of what it's like building a business in such a taboo space.”______I was going to start by saying that today’s episode is one for the gals.. But honestly - male partners could do with learning about this topic as well! We are going to give you some ideas for great gift-giving in future, I’m sure! Our topic today is certainly not like any other I’ve ever had on the pod in the past 5 years. You will likely learn a few new things but most definitely giggle along with us as we chat with this remarkable businesswoman. I met today’s guest, Viv at a dinner recently and then saw her speak at a conference. She’s a powerhouse - but could also easily become a stand-up comedian - she has me in hysterics. You see, Viv Conway is the Co-Founder of the 7-figure women’s sexual wellness brand, Girls Get Off.  No stranger to the world of business, Viv previously built and sold an activewear brand and a social media agency. Girls Get Off is on a mission to empower women in all things pleasurable, removing the stigma or taboo that comes with talking about (and making the most of!) getting off. Viv believes that shame needs to be taken out of female masturbation and that there’s no greater awakening than getting to know yourself inside and out. (in the words of TayTay) Are you ready for it? Let’s strap on.. I mean strap in, as we learn more about this juicy topic with the ever-entertaining Viv Conway! For more information about Viv, check out these places;-Instagram: Viv Conway (https://www.instagram.com/vivconway_/)  and  Girls Get Off (https://www.instagram.com/girlsgetoff)LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/viv-conway-68ba9b93/ (https://www.linkedin.com/in/viv-conway-68ba9b93/)Website: Girls Get Off (https://girlsgetoff.com.au/)Head to michellejcox.com for more information about the ONE QUESTION podcast, your host or today’s guestsConnect with Michelle on Linkedin here:-

    ISOLATED MOTHERS with Rebecca Gilchrist

    If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be? “The isolation and lack of resources for rural women and mothers”_____Today we meet an extraordinary human. Rebecca Gilchrist is a mother of two, farmer and Clinical Psychologist living and breathing rural life on a 6th generation mixed grazing property in NSW. The rolling granite hills of the New England tablelands are a long way from her childhood as an expatriate, the daughter of a telco executive, raised travelling and living abroad in China, India and Türkiye. When Rebecca found herself birthing her daughter on an ambulance plane at 33 weeks, a stint in NICU and navigating a second high-risk pregnancy in the bush she was confronted with the deafening echo of challenges experienced by many women in accessing maternity care and support for birth trauma recovery in the bush. Rebecca is passionate about sharing her story and bringing mental health services to rural women throughout all of Australia - not just those in the cities.

    SOBER AWKWARD with Victoria Vanstone

    SOBER AWKWARD with Victoria Vanstone

    If there was one thing you think society should talk more about, what would it be? “As a culture why do we feel the need to top-up our personalities with booze and not be our authentic selves socially?” Victoria Vanstone is the host of Sober Awkward, a popular comedy podcast that tracks two former party animals as they navigate life without booze. Victoria started writing on the day she gave up alcohol and became a renowned over-sharer on her blog drunkmummysobermummy.com (http://drunkmummysobermummy.com/). The reformed ‘party girl’ is now on a mission to help others who are stuck in a pattern of normalised social binge drinking. Originally from Reading in the UK, Vic now lives on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland with her brood of uncontrollable children, a rather confused dog, and a very patient husband. Victoria's first book 'A Thousand Wasted Sundays' (https://www.booktopia.com.au/a-thousand-wasted-sundays-victoria-vanstone/book/9780645757941.html) is out now and I was super excited to meet her - I hope you love this conversation as much as I did.**If you’re in New Zealand, Sober Awkward are doing a live show on May 30, 2024.

Helene Maree ,

Food for thought in every episode

I’m a new listener to this podcast and what I’m enjoying most is Michelle’s warm and enthusiastic approach to the people she interviews. This creates a really wonderful and rich conversation. I’m finding that there is a takeaway in every episode, something relatable, and always thought provoking. The tone of the podcast feels very nurturing.

Such interesting topics

Very insightful conversations about a huge range of topics, great listening!

Authentic story telling

Michelle talks about topics that are important to so many of us, but are just not getting discussed so openly. She speaks honesty and authentically by seeking out truth tellers and provides the platform for them to tell their stories which we all benefit from.
