    S4E05: Life's Final Reflections: Unveiling the Secrets to a Good Life with Heath Piper

    S4E05: Life's Final Reflections: Unveiling the Secrets to a Good Life with Heath Piper

    In my mind, the podcast you’re about to listen to could be the most important podcast I’ve ever recorded.
    I’ll prep you, it’s a bit of an emotional roller coaster. So be warned.
    The emotional highs and lows are worth it though because the lessons are the ones we all need to hear.
    I haven’t stopped talking about it with my friends and family since I finished it up.
    If you’ve ever wondered what really makes a good life…
    …or what people really regret in their final years…
    …or what most people wish they had done differently in their lives, then this is the podcast for you.
     
    Today, I am interviewing Heath Piper, the founder of Playback Interviews.
    Heath interviews the life stories of the elderly so their families have a deeply personal memoir.
    Even though these interviews are strictly confidential to the families, Heath has given us an insight into the lessons that have moved him most, both emotionally and forward in life.
    This podcast is rife with stories and lessons.
    ---
    Before I get to the show, I want to give you a very quick update on my coaching services because things are shifting.
     
    The Adventurepreneur Collective has evolved and has become what I’ve always been longing to coach: how to be who you’re supposed to be.
    We cover three essential topics: how to stop living a life that doesn’t make you into who you’re supposed to be, how to stop feeling frantic, imprecise and rushed, and how to rid yourself of an unclear mind.
     
    Anyway, here’s the update: I’m changing the way I deliver this coaching & making it far more of a deep experience.
    I’m only working with those who apply & fit the bill, and I’m limiting the membership to 40 members at any one time. What’s more, I’m only going to be accepting 4 new sign ups per month.
    The group is currently 15 strong, with another two joining in the April batch. So there’s only two more spaces to be had before May.
    If you’re interested in exploring what more freedom, self mastery, and effectiveness would do in your life, shoot me a message on Instagram.
    You’ll need to head to instagram and search for my name, Tom Foxley.

    Now, let’s get on with an incredible show with Heath Piper, I think you’re going to love this one.

    S4E04: All In On Life: Reaching Your Ultimate Potential with Tom Mansbridge

    I’m about to introduce you to my friend, Tom Mansbridge
    When I first spoke to Tom, he was in a tough place. You’re about to find out exactly what that place was.
    Tom has managed to do a 180 on where he was personally headed, and we’re going to discuss the exact framework of how you can do that too.
    Want more clarity? We’ve got you covered
    Want to train your character to fulfil your potential? Sorted.
    Want to start acting from a place of calm, rather than fear? Gotcha.
    We’re going to show you the exact framework for going all in on life and how to be the person you’re meant to become.
    When you’re listening to this, you may find yourself thinking, “yeah that’s fine for someone like Tom, but what about for me?”
    I invite you to put that self-doubt aside and consider what could be possible for you if you went all in.
     
    Starting that business you dream of?
    Being the father that inspires your family?
    Getting into the best shape you’ve ever been in?
    Living the life of adventure that calls to you?
     
    That’s all there for you in the next 30 odd minutes, and Tom is going to explain exactly how he got there.
    So sit back, grab a notepad, and listen to the legend who is Tom Mansbridge
