    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - with Lili Boyanova

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - with Lili Boyanova

    This week, the real value comes from the story of Lili Boyanova, about her incredible journey, in which she has found herself reinventing what life looks like, and finding time to add true value to the world at every opportunity.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The story we build in life can take us on some unexpected diversions. When challenges arise, we overcome and begin a whole new direction.
    Life changes dramatically when we become parents. Finding the balance between personal and business life is suddenly very different.
    The people we meet add to the value we are able to create. They provide inspiration and support, and can greatly affect the direction we take.
    The pandemic has shown us that actually we can survive in the world with less than we thought. We are able to realistically question the need for "more"

    BEST MOMENTS

    'I came to this country and decided to create value in the world'

    'It got me to question how to face the stigma, and how I will cope with it'

    'It was a big, big cultural shock'

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - Gloria Milner, A Life Coach With An Extraordinary Life

    This week, Lee talks to life coach, Gloria Milner, whose fascinating life began in advertising, where she built a reputation through her wisdom, acumen and ability to sell media spots on television.

    Since then, Gloria's journey has been a diverse one, and in this episode, she talks to Lee about the path that brought her to her true calling as a life coach.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Gloria generation was one that had very different societal expectations of what women should be. Her determination to do better for herself was a driving factor in breaking the mold.
    Levelling the playing field in our minds is the art of remembering that people are people. No one is better than another person.
    Coaching and mentorship have not always been a resource. Today's world is extraordinarily lucky to be able to learn from the paths and lessons of others.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'I was from a generation where women were expected to teach'

    'There was a sense that I could so it, and I wanted to succeed where others had not'

    'Women want to advance in their careers'

    'There's a lot of opportunity to help people'

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - From South Africa To South Wales - with Herb Morrick

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - From South Africa To South Wales - with Herb Morrick

    This week, Lee talks to Herb Morrick, whose fascinating true life story has taken him from South Africa to South Wales, and which has seen him experience much that the twentieth century has had to offer. Herb talks about the power of choice, why culture and values shoud be at the forefront of every business, and how best to create trust.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Building relationships and delivering on what we promise allows us to create trust and enrich life and business at every turn.
    When we put our core values at the forefront of business, we create trust and a sense of safety. Our clients become connected to our story.
    Different opinions and different skill sets are not necessarily a weakness when it comes to partnerships. Opposing perspectives and skills actually end up complimenting the other, and thereby strengthening us.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'Life in my family has made me sensitive to how other people feel'

    'We were four guys who absolutely believed in making a difference'

    'Just remember that you're going to have differences'

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - Overcoming Limiting Beliefs - with Harry Armistead

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - Overcoming Limiting Beliefs - with Harry Armistead

    This week, Lee talks to business coach, Harry Armistead, about the ways in which he coaches others to achieve the mind-set that allows them to succeed in business, and how to dismantle the limiting beliefs that may be holding us back.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    If you don't start with adjusting the mindset, then nothing else matters. Mindset is the foundational key to success upon which all other factors are based.
    We cannot help who we are on the inside, and nor should we try to alter who we are in order to fit in. We cannot live life to suit others.
    If we apply ourselves to a task and are determined to see it through, then half the battle is won already. Most things can be overcome if we believe that they can be.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'People want something more than mediocrity'

    'It took me time to own it'

    'There is a way forward. There is a plan. There needs to be a plan'

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - Sally Chapman And Her Squiggly Journey

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - Sally Chapman And Her Squiggly Journey

    In the fifth part of his new mini-series, focussing upon real people with real stories that give real value, Lee talks to Sally Chapman of Shine Coaching, about the journey she's taken through life so far, and how she helps people to rediscover the sparkle they thought may have been lost, and help them to shine at whatever they do.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    We all face challenges in life, and barriers and obstacles that bring us down. What matters is how we deal with them, and the direction we choose afterwards.
    We can transform any situation by maintaining a positive outlook and attitude. It can be the deciding factor in whether a challenge derails us or not.
    When we have clearly defined goals in business and life, it makes the pathway more easier to traverse. We must focus on the point ahead that we want to reach and keep moving forward

    BEST MOMENTS

    'Something's going to happen to you, whether it's good or bad'

    'I've always had a drive to do things, and do them to the best of my ability'

    'There's got to be more...'

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - The Importance Of Kindness with Karyn Ross

    Real People, Real Stories, Real Value - The Importance Of Kindness with Karyn Ross

    In the fourth part of his new mini-series, focussing upon real people with real stories that give real value, Lee talks to author and creator, Karyn Ross, about not just her incredible story, but also why kindness should lie behind every motivation in life.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    We are never too old to begin a new venture and try to put a little more positivity into the world. There is always room for more.
    Kindness leaves a huge imprint upon the world and the people we meet. Kindness is remembered, and its effects can be felt for a lifetime.
    The main cause of problems, in business and life, is failure in leadership and failure in kindness. When we put them together you can trace the root of all problems.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'It's super important to me to create a foundation for a better world'

    'You use the stuff you learn along the way to make a better world'

    'Compassion is feeling someone else's suffering and wanting to do something about it'

Clear thinking, best thinking

A great podcast from Lee. Fascinating discussion with Bev and Kate of Clear Thinking. Love how grounded Bev and Kate are and how relaxed and easeful, the conversation is around ‘time to think’. Well worth a listen👍

Je2646893 ,

Fresh approach

I really liked how this has started. I can see how this could tackle a number of common problems which start to crop up in episode 6. Looking forward to seeing which ones come next. Would be good if there was a way to open a discussion around a particular episode (apologies if I missed it)
