    Nick Afoa // From World Cup winner to the West End...

    Another wonderful guest episode in your ears so we could squeeze in the legendary Nick Afoa! Ang and I will be back with our last few #yaysofourlives episodes for the year from next week (and will be answering more of your questions so if you have any, don't forget to DM them to us!)
    Nick is definitely our first professional rugby player turned musical theatre star going from winning the Junior World Cup to ending up on London's coveted West End not just in the Lion King... but in the lead role as SIMBA! We were lucky enough to witness him in action recently in the incredible new production of Miss Saigon and even luckier to sit down with him this week to cover his twisting and turning pathyay, taking a chance on yourself and everything in between...

    David Knoff // 537 days of Winter....

    David Knoff // 537 days of Winter....

    I am SO excited about this week’s guest and how wild that it coincides with the very weekend I landed in Antarctica exactly a year ago! I still can’t believe that actually happened but how amazing to relive it all in this episode.

    I’m PUMPED to have David Knoff with us this week, you’ll be able to hear in my voice how fascinating I found his pathYAY not only in his Antarctic journey but all the crazy dots that connected to get him there. Think a career as an officer in the Army commanding a whole platoon with the Regional Assistance Mission Solomon Islands turned diplomat at the Australian High Commission in Pakistan which then became Frist Secretary at the Australian Embassy in Iraq with a side of professional photography in Turkey, medals for formation skydiving in Dubai and even splitboarding records – a hybrid snowboard that can be separated into cross country skis for ascent…
     
    And that’s all before he became an Antarctic Station leader at Davis Station which is not only already a uniquely intense and challenging role to fill let alone when you get STUCK THERE DURING AN UNPRECEDENT PANDEMIC for 537 days!!! You can only imagine how interesting THAT story is such that he has written it into an incredible book with more exciting projects on the horizon. I’ll let him tell you more about it himself but I hope you find it as captivating and invigorating as I did!!

Like catching up with a close friend

Not only was I thrilled and super appreciative to be interviewed by Sarah about our cause, I have to say it was like sitting down and catching up with a close friend.

Frothing it!! 🫶🏼👌🏼

Absolutely loving this podcast. I can’t believe I only just found it! As a baby entrepreneur myself, I love listening to a podcast that brings me inspiration, passion and entertainment all in one. I find myself buying all the guests books because I get obsessed with their success and trying to encapsulate that myself. I tell a lot of people about this podcast as I love it so much! Keep it up Sarah!
