    #174 Tony Blauer, Know Fear

    Tony Blauer has been in the martial art, self-defense, defensive tactics, and combatives industry for over four decades.Tony founded Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) in 1985 and it has grown into one of the world's leading consulting companies specializing in the research and development of performance psychology, personal safety, and close quarter tactics & scenario-based training for law enforcement, military, and professional self-defense instructors. His research on the neuroscience of fear and the startle-flinch lead to the development of the SPEAR System, a modern personal defense system based on physiology, physics, and psychology. It has been used by defensive tactics and combative trainers all over the world for over 30 years. After decades of interviewing victims of violent encounters and studying violence, he then created the KNOW FEAR program which focuses on managing fear through self-awareness, resiliency and a 'movement' mindset.

    Jacqui Louder is one of Australia's leading Sport Psychologists, a good friend of Craig's and for a decade or so, was his co-host on 'The Science of Sport' (SEN sports radio)in Melbourne. This conversation was interesting, thought provoking, educational and funny. And the bit about cake decorating was weird. Enjoy.

    #172 Gifts From Grief

    #172 Gifts From Grief

    At 17, Rachel Pope had her whole world thrown into chaos when her father was given weeks to live. He died at 47. Eight years later she tragically lost her brother in a car accident and then at 37, the mum of two became a widow, when her husband Ray passed away from the same cancer that killed her dad. Tragedy, grief and death are unavoidable components of the human experience, which is why conversations like this one are so important. There's definitely no 'three-step' plan when it comes to grieving or supporting others through their grief but opening the door on this topic is definitely a step in the right direction. These days, Rachel helps people find some light in their darkness with her book (Gifts from Grief), her speaking and the community she's building to empower and support others. This was a really important chat and I was privileged to be part of it.

    #171 So You Want to be a Speaker?

    #171 So You Want to be a Speaker?

    Professional speaking is something I'm asked about often. How I got started. How I work. How it works. Getting work. Building a profile. What organisations want. And don't want. Putting together a presentation, keynote or workshop. Where to start. What to charge. When to charge. Reading a room. Building confidence, awareness and skill. Developing content. Being relevant and relatable. Performing under pressure. Dealing with anxiety. Scripted versus freestyle. Preparation. And lots more. This episode will be relevant and valuable for some, kind-of interesting for others and maybe 'come-back-next-time' for a few. Having said that, there are lots of ideas and suggestions shared which are transferrable and broadly applicable. Enjoy.

    #169 Fred Schebesta

    At the ripe old age of 38, Fred Schebesta (creator of comparison website Finder) is on AFR's Young Rich List with a personal fortune of $193 million. Which is quite the achievement. Of course. But what's way more impressive for me, is the bloke behind the business, brand and money. I'm not exactly sure what I expected going into this conversation but what I got was way more than I hoped for. He's awesome. I know I always say this, but this episode (no, really) is in my new all-time top 3. Among other things, we discussed Fred's relationship with money, his parenting style, why he employed a divorce coach and an emotional coach, quarantine saving, trading time for money, why he teaches his kids to negotiate, self-loathing, self-awareness, the 'you' experience and his three tips for starting a business. Enjoy.
