    What Do You Really Want From Life? | Alex Kergall

    What Do You Really Want From Life? | Alex Kergall

    Asking yourself this simple question is something that coach Alex Kergall believes is central to performing at our best. And he should know. He spends his life helping CEOs and professional athletes to keep improving. In his chat with Georgie, he considers the common characteristics and challenges of building the life we truly want to live, why we often approach life ‘upside-down’ and if you focus on fear, then you can be sure it’ll come knocking. He shares how he works with clients to move their mindset away from the worst-case scenario and towards a lighter approach that focuses on self-nourishment and being present in your everyday tasks.

    Turn Obstacles Into Opportunities | Philippa Langley

    Philippa Langley has an extraordinary story. Flying high in her career she was struck down with chronic fatigue syndrome and, as she recovered, only had enough energy to read. But what she read led her to become a world-renowned expert in Richard III and ultimately find the location of his lost remains in a story that made headlines around the world. It’s a lesson in high performance against the odds, shaping your own opportunities when some might throw in the towel and how to keep going when the obstacles seem insurmountable.

Anya describes her passion for order and how a lifelong obsession for labeling has shaped her business. As a mother of 5 and a business leader she shares with Georgie the deeper thinking behind her book’s title “If in doubt, wash your hair” and why she’ll continue to pass down the advice her dad gave her, ‘if you can see it, you can be it”.

Too many ads

I appreciate that you need advertising to fund the podcast and earn a living. However, I feel that the ratio of adverts to content is out of balance.
