The Feel Good Blueprint covers a range of topics related to doing one's best. With a focus on the key themes of Health, Wealth and Wisdom, woven into touch of Art and Culture, FGB will leave you with food for thought.
Season 2 Ep 1 - What is FGB and why I created it
From building a master life plan to starting from scratch again on the other side of the world. I kick off my second season of Podcast with a story about how I came about creating The Feel Good Blueprint, what it is all about and how we can all benefit from personal growth. Enjoy!
Ricky Weaver- Connections Untold
Ricky Weaver is host of the Connections Untold podcast, where he speaks with incredible people in each episode to share their life stories and lessons. Starting the podcast back in September 2019, Ricky opened up about his prior child abuse and difficult upbringing, and since then has led a life of curiosity, interviewing dozens of people. Through his podcast, Ricky advocates the power of connection and vulnerability and is a firm believer that our stories have the power to inspire and move others in to making positive steps in their own lives.
In this episode, we discuss the power of shifting perspective. Ricky had some challenges in his childhood but was able to transmute them in his adult life to channel his energy to strengths and opportunities, resulting in his podcast. We also talk about the benefits and detractors to podcasting, the value of accountability partnership and the courage of being vulnerable.
Ricky was a big inspiration and catalyst for me starting my blog and podcast. He is practical, courageous and has been a big help to me over lockdown. Thanks to Ricky for his time and insight and please do check out his podcast!
