    Adam Jelic – How To Become A Goal Digger

    Adam Jelic – How To Become A Goal Digger

    Welcome to our final episode of Power Up Life Season 1… Don’t worry, we’ll be back in 2021! So get excited. Now, with the new year literally around the corner, we reckon this chat will help get you in the best mindset to kick-start 2021!

    But before we introduce you to this week’s guest, we’d love to ask you a question… 

    Have you ever had a dream and hoped it would come true one day, but for whatever reason, it never actually became a reality? …Let’s be honest, facing this truth can be a super real challenge.

    This week’s guest knows EXACTLY how this feels. His name is Adam Jelic. In high school, he saw himself becoming an internationally renowned soccer player. He loved soccer and was really good at it. But for a variety of reasons this dream never happened for him. 

    Despite this setback, he never stopped believing in himself. So one day, he eventually had the courage to step out of his comfort zone and try something new. And that ‘something’ is now an international stationery brand for ‘Goal Diggers’. Adam is the proud, yet incredibly humble Founder and Director behind Mi Goals, a Melbourne-based brand that’s helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world track and achieve their goals. How incredible is that!

    Here’s just one of the many quotable moments in today’s ep: “Hope is not a strategy.” How true is that?! Having hope and faith is super important when working towards your goals, but Adam understands that your goals still need to be backed up by a solid plan with actionable and attainable steps.

    As you can probably guess, Adam and Gianna chatted about a LOT of things including:


    What high school was like for him
    Why he wanted to become an athlete
    How he started Mi Goals
    Advice for young entrepreneurs
    How to set goals
    And loads more!

    So let’s Power Up Life!

    Erin Boutros – How Her Movement Empty Esky Went Viral

    Erin Boutros – How Her Movement Empty Esky Went Viral

    We know 2020 can seem like one big blur, but do you remember that before COVID-19, Australia was experiencing an unprecedented bushfire season this time, last year?! It ran for so many months and the devastation was so destructive that it’s widely known as Black Summer.

    Over 18 million hectares burned, destroying over 5,900 buildings, including over 2,800 homes. In addition to human fatalities, many millions of wildlife sadly perished, including over 5,000 koalas within NSW alone – a third of that state’s koala population.

    The Australian economy also suffered tremendously costing the nation billions of dollars in losses, not to mention the regions that fell victim to the bushfires – they were hardest hit.

    Now here’s the good news. We all have the ability to create a positive change and play our part to restore our economy and help rebuild these beautiful towns and the livelihoods of those affected by the bushfires. And leading the way is one amazing human, Erin Boutros, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Empty Esky. 

    In case you didn’t know, Empty Esky is a national tourism movement of foodies and adventurers on a mission to support small businesses affected by the Australian fires. They’re on a mission to encourage everyone to grab an Empty Esky, embark on a road trip to a fire-affected town (when it’s safe to do so) and to stock up with produce and product purchased from local traders.

    The story behind Empty Esky’s launch and massive growth is SO inspiring. They get to work with some of the world’s most recognisable brands to help spread their mission and vision.

    It’s an awesome not-for-profit and run by a small team of volunteers and so we’re super excited that Erin (who also happens to be a Happow ambassador) is joining Gianna for our 2nd last episode of season 1! 

    In this ep, Erin and Gianna chat about:


    How Empty Esky became a viral movement on Insta
    How she got the word out and created her website
    The day she was invited to Canberra to meet Prime Minister, Scott Morrison (ScoMo)
    How she became a social entrepreneur
    What’s next and loads more.

    So Let’s Power Up Life!

    Molly Jane – The Secrets To Building A Global Mindfulness Biz

    Have you ever been on a private jet? We sure haven’t, but this week’s guest of Power Up Life has and she says it’s amazing. 

    She had what some may call ‘the dream job’ – traveling the world, meeting celebs, and influencers, as a Social Media Manager for one of the world’s most iconic self-tanning brands, Bondi Sands. 

    Molly Jane has one huge story to tell. On paper, she’s lived a pretty glamorous life. But she’s been through A LOT and all of it has made her one resilient #bossbabe on a mission to help other women live a life that’s true to them.

    One of Molly’s biggest achievements was in April 2019 when she launched Bloom, a Meditation and Sleep app alongside one of her besties Chloe Szep. Their app is helping thousands of women of all ages to be more mindful…but this is just one chapter in Molly’s story.

    So in this ep, Molly and Gianna chat about her journey with mental health, which started back in high school, to her high-flying job at Bondi Sands, her self-help journey, how she launched her own app, her honest advice for youth and LOADS more.

    So Let’s Power Up Life!

    Wil Massara – How This Teen Entrepreneur Leads Thousands

    Wil Massara – How This Teen Entrepreneur Leads Thousands

    What if we told you you’re never too young to achieve your dreams. Now you’re probably thinking, as if! Well we have proof for you. Meet multi-award winning social entrepreneur Wil Massara from Perth, WA. He, like us, at Happow believes you’re never too young to change the world. 

    In 2018, whilst in high school, Wil launched Youth Leadership Academy Australia (YLAA) with the mission to empower youth through events and more. Wil’s first leadership conference was held in February 2018, which led him to speak at a youth conference in Hawaii. Wil’s entrepreneurial journey started at the age of 13. There’s quite a lot of layers to Wil’s story and a few surprises too. 

    Wil has now taken Youth Leadership Academy Australia nationwide hosting and facilitating events, school programs and community engagement initiatives positively impacting over 5000 students, from 125 schools, in 5 states, which is expected to rise to beyond 100,000 by 2022. 

    This again proves that age is NO factor when setting and kicking goals. Got a dream you’d like to achieve, in the words of Nike, ‘Just Do It.’

    In this episode, Wil and Gianna chat about:


    how he started YLAA with just $80;
    how he got through high school whilst managing a business;
    launching his first business called planeapedia; 
    what it’s actually like to partner up with the likes of Qantas;
    the value in having a solid personal brand; and
    much more.

    Also, a bit of a warning, as part of this week’s challenge Gianna and Wil eat some pretty gross food, so enjoy listening to that!
