    Juliet Allen on how she uses visualisation & sex magic to grow her business.

    Juliet Allen on how she uses visualisation & sex magic to grow her business.

    #Jalison is back. If you’ve listened to my first and second honest conversation with Juliet Allen, you’ll know about our cute nickname. We became fast friends after our first recording session and now I probably talk to Juliet more than I do Tony during the day. We’re both deep in our motherhood season and we also have really similar businesses, so we exchange voice texts all day about everything from what bibs we’re using, to what we’re currently creating and what we’re having for dinner. It’s nice. I think we keep each other sane.
    If you don’t know about Juliet, she’s Australia’s leading sexologist and the founder of Pleasure School, The Juliet Pleasure Wand and Yinn. Body. 
    The last two times she’s been my guest, we’ve spoken about sex. This time, I invited her back on to talk about how she’s built and grown such a pioneering and progressive business, but also, to share what life and work looked like before the Juliet Allen we know today. She’s worked so hard to get where she is so I want you to keep that in mind. 
    Slow, meaningful, deliberate. 
    In this episode, we talk about authentic expression over having a social media strategy, how leaving a financially secure situation was the moment her business began to thrive, productising her brand and generating new income streams, how she uses sex magic, visualisation and manifestation to reach her goals, and why success has nothing to do with the amount of money in her bank account.
    Juliet has been a huge expander for so many of us who want to use our unique gifts to serve, and to make a living while we do it. A big thank you to Juliet for opening up so we can all learn.
     
    I hope this episode helps you on your way. Thank you for being here.

    Celebrity stylist Jess Pecoraro on feeling the fear and doing it anyway.

    Celebrity stylist Jess Pecoraro on feeling the fear and doing it anyway.

    This episode is part of my ongoing Self Care Sundays mini-series produced by Studio Offline and in partnership with Estée Lauder. I sit down with some of the brand’s inspiring ambassadors and friends to have an honest conversation about self care and success.
    My next guest is the perfect example of this idea that we need to get comfortable with discomfort when it comes to evolving professionally. Feel the fear and do it anyway.
    Jess Pecoraro is one of Australia’s most in-demand celebrity stylists, and during the pandemic, like so many others, executed a brilliant pivot. She co-founded a styling subscription platform called Selected. What she didn’t anticipate, though, was how hard it would be to come out from behind the scenes, to lead the scene. 
    Also, the unique challenge anyone who is wanting to move into online learning and education faces: How to create a methodology for that which is just simply felt and known.
    In this episode, Jess shares her journey from magazine intern to styling the likes of Pip Edwards, Delta Goodrem and Jesinta Campbell. She opens up about choosing a redundancy package over re-applying for her role, how she overcame her fear of public speaking and presenting, why confidentiality is a key contributor to her success and the role she believes fashion plays in our lives. 
     
    I hope this episode helps you on your way. Thank you for being here.

    Sah D’Simone on why altruism is the ultimate business strategy.

    Sah D’Simone on why altruism is the ultimate business strategy.

    My next guest is someone my sister suggested I follow a while back, and I’ve been obsessed with his signature style of spirituality even since. 
    Sah D’Simone is a Brazilian-born meditation teacher based in Venice Beach, California. He’s also a bestselling author, transformational speaker and coach.
    He’s worked with the likes of Kanye West, Cardi B and Google, but as you’ll soon hear, those names were never on his career vision board. For Sah, True Self Success starts and ends in service. 
    Sah developed his personal equation for liberation through desperation. He said that even in some of the most enlightened rooms in the world, he experienced the same kinds of psychological and verbal oppression he experienced in the non-spiritual rooms in his life. So he created the Spiritually Sassy method, which, in its simplest form, helps people be themselves. It’s been described as a life-embracing path to awakening in modern times.
    There’s so much for us to learn in this episode. He talks about starting and growing a spiritual business, learning to dance with fear and the uncertainty that comes with entrepreneurship, how to create from a place of abundance vs. scarcity, altruism as the ultimate strategy and so much more. 
     
    I hope this episode helps you on your way. Thank you for being here.

    Laura Poole on knowing what you are before defining what you’ll do.

    Laura Poole on knowing what you are before defining what you’ll do.

    Have you ever thought deeply about why we start businesses or brands? Usually it’s to solve a problem, fill a gap in the market or make money. 
     
    But how many founders do you know have started something with the intention to exit it? And not “exit” Silicon Valley style with millions of dollars, but exit with nothing but the knowing that they’ve fulfilled their purpose in this lifetime. 
     
    Laura Poole is a powerful and prolific Vedic Meditation teacher, and in this episode, she presents a more evolutionary perspective on the why behind what we choose to create.
     
    She asks us to first know what we are, before deciding what it is that'll we’ll do. 
     
    Because how much of what we create is actually about our individual need to feel valued and valuable? Like, how many of us can hand-on-heart say that we hope our role becomes redundant because the business outgrew us? Our ego would be screaming. But with the context Laura brings in this episode, this becomes quite a liberating thought.
     
    She also helps us see past “success” as an individualised experience, and instead, asks us to consider what collective and community success might look like. How might that change the way we show up professionally? 
     
    What I also heard from Laura is that this way of building something also gives us back the one thing we can never get more of in the relative world: Time. Time to explore other parts of ourselves that want to be expressed. Time to consider the next season of our life and what would be most evolutionary for us once again. Because we are not the thing we started or the thing we do. 
     
    I hope this episode helps you on your way. Thank you for being here.

    Honouring the interconnectedness of our True Self and our profession.

    Honouring the interconnectedness of our True Self and our profession.

    What we do for a living feels a bit more emotional than it used to. Restrictions to our freedoms have made many of us question what actually makes us feel happy and fulfilled. A sneaky sleep in. A long walk before the workday starts. A home-cooked lunch. Creating just because not for. The time to think more deeply and even change our mind.
    Many of us are also questioning if we're using our gifts and skills in ways that make us feel truly useful in the world. Is it time to start something that means something? Could we lead more consciously? And how much money is enough? 
    We’re evolving, and this podcast is evolving with us. I’d love to share Offline’s Manifesto with you. 
    I hope this season helps you on your way. Thank you for being here.

    Ask Me Anything: Host Alison Rice on her pregnancy, labour preparation and the postpartum period.

    Ask Me Anything: Host Alison Rice on her pregnancy, labour preparation and the postpartum period.

    To close season six, host Alison Rice dedicates her Ask Me Anything episode to her little girl, Betty. 
    So often, the stories we hear about pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period are negative and fear-based. Alison’s experience has been more soft than hard, and so she hopes that sharing a different perspective might help other women feel more excited than scared about this new chapter.
    In this extended episode, Alison answers listener questions about her pregnancy, navigating pregnancy anxiety, her labour preparation, hospital bag must-haves and why she believes she had a soft and positive postpartum experience. 
    She also talks about the sense of perspective she has following two pregnancy losses, the life lessons she hopes to teach her little girl, her thoughts on her career and earning after having a baby, the products she’s loved, the books she read, her emerging parenting style, and opens up about Betty’s personality and what she looks like. 
    Below is a list of everything Alison refers to in this episode, plus a few extras she forgot to include.
