    Ep. 13: TIWIK... about money with Damien Fogg

    Ep. 13: TIWIK... about money with Damien Fogg

    Money is historically a complex subject for most people to discuss. Whether you’ve got it, had it and lost it or never had it, no one seems to want to talk about the m word… this is why I wanted to cover it on TIWIK. Damien Fogg is the author of The Money Shot - The (Slightly Less Dull) Guide to Personal Finance and Investing alongside being an investor, entrepreneur, mortgage adviser, Chartered Surveyor, day trader, property developer, landlord, entrepreneur... and former financial adviser. Oh and in his spare time he runs the EP Investor. Growing up a bit obsessed with money and finances he managed to organise his personal finances in such a way that he retired at 32, so I thought he would be the perfect person to chat to for TIWIK about money.During this episode we discuss planning for future you, what to do about debt, how starting early is the best plan and why most people are dick heads with their money (Damiens words not mine). We chat trading and why it’s not always the best way to make money, where you should start if you’re trying to get a handle on your finances and why paying off your debts can be the best return on your money. If you want to learn more about cash this is the episode for you.  EPISODE INFO AND LINKS:Website https://www.theepinvestor.com/Facebook https://www.facebook.com/theEPinvestor/?eid=ARC0sedJQMfFzz3R1uk1o5rdLEtP2Yg-XsVyQSe8g905ZpxtkhtW40oiLmVBicBt_7AzzX_88LX8vyq4Buy Damiens book - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Money-Shot-Slightly-Personal-Investing-ebook/dp/B07D471F4L USEFUL LINKS:Profit first https://profitfirstbook.com/Rich Dad Poor Dad https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rich-Dad-Poor-Teach-Middle/dp/1612680011The Naked Trader https://www.nakedtrader.co.uk/agree.htmIf you need help with your mental health or your finances, please reach out to get help.

    Ep. 12: TIWIK... about people pleasing with Ryan Lanji

    Ep. 12: TIWIK... about people pleasing with Ryan Lanji

    People pleasing is a big issue for many people and I know that was a huge part of what led to my break down. Feeling like I could never say no to anyone and that I had to keep everyone happy was a real issue so I was over the moon when Ryan said he would love to discuss people pleasing for his episode.Ryan Lanji is a Fashion & Art Curator, his curatorial direction on shows, PR events, collaborations and launches have led to global recognition in fashion and art alike, bringing together some of the biggest names across the industry, including Nick Knight, Gilbert & George, Vidal Sassoon and Mary Katrantzou. More recently curating 'Conservation Couture: The Animal Ball Collection' at the V&A Museum, it featured over forty fashion houses including Chloe, Burberry, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Thierry Mugler. Alongside his work in fashion and art he is the Cultural Producer of Hungama, East London’s Queer Bollywood hip hop night. Hungama translates to 'chaos' and although Ryan’s music selection may be chaotic, he wanted to create the exact opposite… a safe space allowing queer South Asian people the chance for their culture and sexuality to seamlessly co-exist within a club night.During this installment of #tiwik we seem to cover a lot! From coming out to parents who at the time didn’t understand, to dropping out of school to follow your dreams. We discuss chance encounters and how they can change the direction of your life and how pleasing our parents can lead to never fully actualising who we are at our core. The conversation drifts through community and music, to juggling multiple projects and skills where you’re expected to be everything to everyone, to working for free to create and build your dream. We chat cancelling your diary to create space, the fear of loss, rejection and hiding from people in the cinema just to get some peace! “Everytime you people please you lose a bit of yourself.” so hopefully through listening to this episode you can gain a bit of yourself back. EPISODE INFO AND LINKS:Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mslanji/https://www.instagram.com/hungama_ldn/ USEFUL LINKS:If you need help with your mental health, please reach out to get help.

    Ep. 11: TIWIK... about astrology with Francesca Oddie

    The first time I met Francesca Oddie, I think we talked enthusiastically for about 2 hours about energy, the moon, the stars and planets and everything in between. I LOVE this woman's energy! Fran is a passionate (she says obsessive) astrologer who really goes into the depths of astrology as a fascinating science. Her quest is to present the subject simply and to enable people to comprehend the reliable roots of astrology and this seems to have been the case since she saw the word Sagittarius at age 5. During this episode we discuss how Francesca got into astrology, palmistry and numerology, segueing through dating scorpios, how astrology works and how we might be able to use it to guide our lives. We go into using asteroids in charts and whether you can read someone’s chart ‘wrong’ as well as the risk of projecting onto clients and how we use and build our intuition. EPISODE INFO AND LINKS:Website: https://www.francescaoddie.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/francescaoddieastrology/Magic Momenti; Natal Charts & Astrology Art: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/FrancescaOddieUSEFUL LINKS:If you need help with your mental health, please reach out to get help.

    Ep. 10: TIWIK... about mushrooms with Darren Springer

    Darren Springer is a teacher, researcher and qualified organic horticulturist. By day he teaches organic gardening and food enterprise to “so called” hard to reach young people, in particular those who have been temporarily or permanently excluded from mainstream school. Darren is part of the Breaking Convention committee and works closely with Funzing, organising thought provoking talks and workshops around the subjects of Mushroom cultivation, psychedelic experiences and unearthing ancient buried knowledge from African-Caribbean history, culture and spirituality.During this episode Darren and I discuss how we connected many years ago through a mutual love of art. We discuss seeds as currency, the power of nature as medicine, the potential application of psychedelics and entheogenic plants for mental health treatment and whether these psychoactive substances can help people to access and deal with their emotional baggage. Collectively Darrens work aims to inform and empower individuals from diverse backgrounds to cope with social challenges and contribute to community development as well as self-improvement in an innovative, creative, culturally-aware style and I think that really comes through on this episode. EPISODE LINKS:Website: https://www.darrenlebaron.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/darren_le_baron/Find his events and talks on Funzing: https://uk.funzing.com/users/158242USEFUL LINKS:If you need help with your mental health, please reach out to get help.

We discuss speaking our shame and how to open up conversations with your family. EPISODE LINKS:Love Sober hosts the community Love Sober Life on Mighty Networks, offers 1-1 and online coaching programmes, workshops and talks and the Love Sober Podcast.
