    Jules Sebastian - Have courage and be kind

    Jules Sebastian is an in-demand Sydney-based TV presenter, stylist, public speaker and philanthropist and very good friend of yours truly. She leads the lifestyle pack with an impressive & highly engaged following on Instagram & Facebook. She also presents a regular celebrity & successful leading interview series Tea with Jules on YouTube which has 3 million views. And, together with her husband Guy, she founded The Sebastian Foundation, which has helped countless Australians struggling with domestic violence, serious illness and under-privilege.

    Recently, the Foundation has adjusted their focus to addressing an urgent societal need for the mental health of our kids who are growing up in a world with huge challenges from social media, bullying and comparison and The Sebastian Foundation in 2020 is investing in programs that aim to change these lives for the better -by giving young Australians the resilience and confidence they need to grow and be their best. Jules is just an all round incredible human who I love and adore to pieces. I am super excited to dig deep with her on this weeks edition of Hear me RAW.

    NOTE: Please excuse the first 8 minutes or so. We were having slight technical difficulties with headphones and sound issues. But its ripper content and the sound gets much crisper as we get deeper into the conversation.

    Bradley Trevor Greive - How to be a Creative Animal: Breaking into International Publishing and Hollywood

    Bradley Trevor Greive - How to be a Creative Animal: Breaking into International Publishing and Hollywood

    This week we're breaking the mould and shaking it up. I hope by now you've listened to the episode I did with Bradley Trevor Greive titled Lessons of a semi indestructible literary action man. In true form, a couple of days after we'd recorded that, he penned an email saying lets do another one where I'll roll through a bunch of sections and share specific tips, insights and stories of success and failure on becoming an international best seller and making it in Hollywood. And so, we did.

    In this second episode with the ex-paratrooper, New York Times Best Selling Author, Polynesian Rock Lifting Champion, voice of a seagull in finding Nemo and all round International Best Selling Author and Hollywood sensation, we talk in a fast and furious way through everything you need to know to hit the big time including:

    • Bedrock Principles
    • The Creative Process
    • Time/Energy Management
    • Credits Are Better Than Contacts
    • Collaboration/Team Building
    • Growing Your Business
    • Running A Business
    • Finding an Agent/Publisher
    • World Domination
    • Legal issues
    • Shut Up & Do the Work

    Bradley Trevor Greive - Secrets of a semi-indestructible literary action man

    Bradley Trevor Greive - Secrets of a semi-indestructible literary action man

    This weeks episode of Hear me RAW is with one of the people I respect most on the planet - Bradley Trevor Greive or as I fondly call him BTG. Ex-paratrooper, New York Times mega best selling author, stage and TV producer, qualified cosmonaut, Polynesian rock lifting champion, conservationist, renowned wildlife expert, the voice of the seagull on Finding Nemo, you name it, the guy has done it. He has endured 20 major surgeries, six treatments for rabies, and much of his body has been scarred by and disfigured during regrettable wildlife encounters (his left nipple was gored by a reindeer, then clawed by an arctic fox and then his right nipple was bitten by a Mexican jack fish...

    On a personal note before we jump in, I want to make mention of a few things. I first approached BTG in 2004 to write a testimonial for the front cover of my first book Happiness Is... We stayed firm friends from afar for the next ten years with him supporting me and offering wise words of wisdom at every important juncture of my life. I interviewed him for the very first issue of Collective Hub print mag, and again for our anniversary issue 50. We didn't actually meet in person until 2014 - ten years after we had first made contact. There are few relationships and friendships built like this and ours is one that has and will endure the test of time despite the geographic distances. The last time we saw each other in person was the night my Dad had a heart attack and passed away. BTG was in Australia and as he so generously does, had offered to run a masterclass for my Collective Hub tribe. It was right in the midst of that evening that I received the devastating news about my Dad. I share this because, this is one person that has been a constant source of inspiration, strength and encouragement in my life. And so the universe in some kind of serendipitous way brought us together on that evening. I am grateful to have this man in my life and I am filled with joy that I get to share him with you.

    This episode is littered with life lessons galore - many of which are around resilience and perspective. Without further ado ... BTG.
