Who is this for? Pod Pit is primarily aimed at aspiring young designers and creatives who are about to fly solo. And business people who enjoy learning about creativity, processes, entrepreneurship, challenge, sacrifice, success and juggling families with running a business. Who am I and why am I doing this? I'm Gareth Robertson and I am a graphic designer. I help savvy business leaders be seen, heard and remembered with powerful graphic design.I'm a visual communicator and I love a good story when it's discussed with passion. I believe that we learn, grow and succeed by communicating and digesting information through stories. This podcast is a new platform for my large and ever expanding network of contacts to tell their own special story; and for me and others to learn more about them. Pod Pit provides insight through stories, guidance through familiar narratives and connection through communication. All guests on the show are real people with real and incredible stories to tell and they've kindly agreed to share that story on Pod Pit.

Yaron Engler - Why are men sh!t at this sh!t?
Yaron Engler is a coach. He coaches men to be better in life. Be it business or personal, men can find themselves under pressure to provide, do more, be more and very often receive little to no praise for their efforts.
Men frequently suffer in silence because they’re hard wired that way. They don’t (or can’t) talk about they pressures, battles, worries and challenges.
Because that would be weak.
Yaron is here to reset this. He’s here to coach men through the challenges of life so they understand themselves and their pressures better. So they can react accordingly and do more, be more and enjoy the victory of achieving.
