    019 — A Quick Thank You For 2019 From Our Founder

    To our loyal followers,2019 was one hell of a year. We released 12 collections. Over 300 different garments. 19 podcast episodes. 8 articles on how to be a better person. Over 500 individual Instagram posts. A 10th-anniversary collection. An art collection. A personal development art print collection. Over 45 videos. And serviced 1000s of different people.This business is nonstop. The creative expectation and innovation required to stay afloat is relentless. To know people still have love for what we do 10 years after starting this brand from our founder’s bedroom is humbling. It inspires us to keep on doing what we are doing, but on the same token, it forces us to keep raising the bar. Every day. April 2017 this thing nearly folded. December 2019 we are stronger than ever.We aim to be 1% better every single day because we know that’s the only way moving forward.Thank you for your support this year.

    017 — What To Do When You're Having A Really S****y Day

    017 — What To Do When You're Having A Really S****y Day

    This episode is designed for those that are having a s****y day. We all have them, but unfortunately, not all of us have the tools and tactics to get out of them. This is based off an article I wrote a few weeks back which got some great feedback. I was having a really tough week and an especially bad day when I wrote this, which makes it that much more real. I would highly recommend doing the tasks to get the most out of it.Heres the link to the article: https://www.iloveugly.co.nz/blogs/articles/s**t-day

    016 — A Conversation with Dr. Paul Wood

    016 — A Conversation with Dr. Paul Wood

    On this episode I sit down with motivational speaker and personal development specialist, Dr Paul Wood. Dr Paul Woods story is one of the most interesting I have come across in a while. At just 18 years old​​, Paul went to prison and his life was off the rails. By his release in 2006, he had attained an undergraduate degree in psychology and philosophy, a master’s degree in psychology, and was two years into his Ph.D. Paul uses his journey to illustrate the process of change and how we can have lives of great meaning and purpose despite the circumstances and despite the environment.He’s now an expert in helping people overcome their own barriers and become the best version of themselves and recently released his book which I highly recommend called: How To Escape From Prison.In this episode Paul gives us advice on managing unpleasant emotional thoughts, the power of creating habits, and how it’s never too late to redirect yourself in life. Like all my guests, I like to go deep and extract as much value as I can, and this episode is no different. There’s some golden nuggets in here, I also ask him some questions that would make some of you uneasy.

You’re changing the game!

You've got me hooked! The passion that V speak's with and the life lessons on show are contagious. Since starting I've had a huge shift in my life towards working on myself more than anything else. I've listened to every episode and found them all truly eye opening but if I had to choose three that have had the biggest impact on my life they would have to be Ep 17, Ep 14 and Ep 6(my personal favourite).
Keep striving for the top! I'll still be here listening!
