    ‘Around the Grounds’ with Myf Warhurst – the lady that brings joy to your radio, TV and podcast play-list.

    Today on ‘Around the Grounds’ I am thrilled be joined by the fantastically, glorious Myf Warhurst. From Triple J to Spicks and Specks, I’m a Celebrity to co-hosting Eurovision with the marvellous Joel Creasy.
     
    Myf is a lover of Dolly Parton and all things kitsch, and she legit bring bundles of joy to everything to touches. I am so thankful I sat next to her years ago at a show Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross and her brother Kit performed at. Regardless of my over-clapping and white wine breath we followed each other on Instagram and my life and feed are definitely better with this bird in them.

    Part Two Emma Seibold – Left the corporate world for an ‘Eat, Prey, Eat’ adventure that in turn led to the launch of fitness empire 'Barre Body'

    Part Two Emma Seibold – Left the corporate world for an ‘Eat, Prey, Eat’ adventure that in turn led to the launch of fitness empire 'Barre Body'

     
    Emma has been described as a joy-chaser and she certainly left me filled with joy after our chat.


    Emma’s story saw her make a leap and leave a successful corporate career where she was working for blue chip company to try her hand in the fitness space. I loved hearing the wonderful 'Eat, Prey, Eat' element of Emma's story! Eight years on and Emma has done incredibly well turning her business into a globally recognised workout and fitness education company.
     
    COVID 19 however has seen Emma temporarily close nine studios across Australia and just hustle like all hell to figure out a path forward for her business. Thankfully Emma had spent the last few years building over 200 online workouts as well as certified instructor training programs across Barre, Pilates and Yoga…and so the business ready for the ISO pivot. The fast-flip didn't come without sleepless nights and the juggle to keep a business afloat while home schooling two small children at the same time!
     
    An inspirational story and a wonderful woman who I can confirm is indeed a joy-chaser!

    'Around the Grounds' Jen Fontaine - Artist Management Maestro

    'Around the Grounds' Jen Fontaine - Artist Management Maestro

    Today my guest on 'Around the Grounds' is the glorious Jennifer 'Jen' Fontaine.


    Jen is founder and MD of Private Idaho an artist management, and artist development company who have offices here in Australia as well as in LA. Jen and her incredible team work with iconic Australian talent including Human Nature, Guy Sebastian and the beautiful Jules Sebastian.


    I have been lucky enough to have known Jen for many years. In the music and entertainment industry she is a well-respected powerhouse of a woman. I loved catching up with her from her base in LA where she is in lock down with son Maxwell and her two beautiful dogs Bowie and China. 


    I loved hearing Jen’s stories of rock n roll, travelling the globe, almost dying a plane with Molly Meldrum, learning how to start from scratch when Private Idaho landed in LA 4.5 years ago AND the importance of women supporting other women. A total inspiration to me and many others in our industry. Enjoy!

    'Around the Grounds' with Amy Huberman - my new bestie but you may know her as the Irish actress and writing superstar...

    'Around the Grounds' with Amy Huberman - my new bestie but you may know her as the Irish actress and writing superstar...

    Today’s guest on 'Around the Grounds' is Irish actress and author Amy Huberman. Look to be honest she is totally cool and I never expected to ever get her on the podcast. I ended up getting her on after some incredible investigative journalism on my part... or you could call it stalking. However you look at it she agreed to come on for a chat and I am so bloody chuffed she did.
     
    Before you listen, and if you are not familiar with Amy, or her work, she is an incredibly talented writer and actress. She has shared the screen with the likes of Andrew Scott (aka The Hot Priest in Fleabag), Martin Sheen, Chris Dowd, as well as appearing along side James Nesbit in the British hit show Cold Feet. But I came across Amy while watching Finding Joy (available on ABC iview in Australia). I laughed so much watching the show a bit of wee came out...sorry TMI. BUT not only does this incredible woman star in the show, she also wrote it. She is funny, talented, bloody gorgeous, has held hands under the table with Amy Poehler but according to Amy her husband Brian O'Driscoll has nicer feet than her's, proving no one is perfect. Check out Finding Joy and follow her on Isnatgram you wont regret it. Now enough of my girl crushing and on with the show…

    Part 2 - Simone Voss – Celebrity make-up artist to luxury candle and body product creator

    Part 2 - Simone Voss – Celebrity make-up artist to luxury candle and body product creator

    Simone was a celebrity / TV make-up artist for many years, but when her son Harry was born the juggle of long hours on set made her re-think her working life. What started off as a career change into the world of floristry and events led her to the world of candles and a passion for perfumery. Four years on and Simone Voss Luxury is a well-established range of candles, diffusers, body lotions and washes that is stocked in high-end stores around the world. While Andrew Voss, a celebrated sports commentator, hasn’t ‘quit his day job’ the couple are very much equal partners in running the business. Simone and Andrew share their journey which at times it resembled a Bourne Identity movie, along with the highs, lows and reality of going out on your own. Fascinating stuff and I have to say Andrew’s hall pass choice is equally fascinating!
