The RebelRebel Podcast is a regular dive into the hearts and minds of creative rebels and entrepreneurs.

We talk about life, the universe, and what makes us get up every morning with a bounce in our step ... or how to best claw your way across the kitchen floor to get that first cup of coffee.

Sometimes it’s about deadlines and exploring limitations, but mostly it’s about challenging ourselves and the world to make a difference and not play small.

    Making a difference one kilometre at a time

    Making a difference one kilometre at a time

    Mike Terry is a retired 23-year Canadian Forces Combat Arms veteran who spends his time touring the country raising awareness about PTSD on his KLR 650 motorcycle. 
    Among numerous other roles in the military, Terry was a Dispatch Rider, and for him, these rides are a mission to make connections and carry his message where it doesn’t often get shared.
    Committed to the mission of speaking openly about PTSD and mental health for military personnel and first responders, he’s noticed that his message helps anyone struggling, not just those who have served. 
    Terry’s ‘Five Things the World Should Know’ are not to be missed.

    Callie B. Elwayns - Bold and Visible

    In this episode, Callie B. Elwayns talks about the origins of her work,  the power of the sold-out Bold and Visible Monologues, and what she's up to next.
    Callie's body of work Bold & Visible—and the Somatic Transformational Story Method ™—is a launching pad to catapult female change-makers ... entrepreneurs, leaders, coaches and creatives into greater levels of authentic self-expression and impact in the world.
    "As women find our true voice and step out of the shadows, we will generate a groundswell of positive transformation in our business, family and community. To do so we need to overcome the blocks that are holding us back from sharing our true voice and expressing all we can be." ~Callie B. Elwayns

    The story of Joe, some luck, and a little shoe company from England.

    The story of Joe, some luck, and a little shoe company from England.

    Joe Foster and his late brother, Jeff, worked in the family business. Their family made shoes, and had done so for generations; in fact his grandfather invented the spike running shoe in the late 1800’s. 
    Joe and Jeff eventually decided to go their own way and start their own athletic shoe business called ‘Mercury Sports Footwear’ which quickly pivoted into the company we now know as REEBOK. This is Joe’s story about how he took on the world one step at a time.

    Never Stop Learning and Doing Weird Things

    Never Stop Learning and Doing Weird Things

    One of the things that caught our attention about Ian was his dedication to theatre and film. He’s a talented maker of things, stage combat aficionado, cosplayer, science-fiction geek, and advises everyone to be okay with what makes you happy.
    He’s Chinese by heritage but struggled, as many do, with his Asian roots growing up in a predominately white culture. A lot of what he went through goes into his work in the form of learning to not care about what people think, while at the same time caring about what people think.

I Keep Coming Back For More

Listening to these podcasts, especially in a time like today where there aren’t many networking opportunities to chat to people and hear their store, inspires me a lot. I got off track for awhile and didn’t keep up with the episodes and once I got back into them, I could see a direct result of entrepreneurial energy spark in me again. Give them a listen - something someone says could change a big part of your life.

Such great content

I take so much away every time I listen to this podcast and find myself relistening often. If you’re not following this one you should be!

Great mix of food-for-thought and funny

I like the variety of guests from different fields. The one constant is I learn something in every episode and take away something to think about. Bonus, I often laugh out loud too!
