    Escaping The Cycle Of Domestic Abuse - with Anne Hellgren

    Escaping The Cycle Of Domestic Abuse - with Anne Hellgren

    Anthea is joined by Anne Hellgren, a certified coach and relationship expert, as well as board member of Tavistock Relationships, and the host of the hit podcast The Love You Want.
    Anne joins Anthea to discuss her own experiences with domestic abuse and how she escaped the terrifying cycle of abuse she suffered at the hands of her partners, as well as her work and how she helps others to gain and maintain meaningful, empowering relationships.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    People sometimes suffer domestic abuse in silence because they are afraid to talk about the things that matter. If we don't vocalise, then we cannot hope to heal effectively.Escaping domestic abuse is not an easy thing. Often we are so conditioned by the time it begins that our initial reaction to its appearance is a loss of hope and a feeling of being trapped.Cultures often dictate that women are meant to be subservient to their spouses. Submission is taught, and normalised. This needs to change.Change has to begin within ourselves if we want it to take root. Start by loving yourself, which will make abuse a crime against someone we come to care for.BEST MOMENTS
    'Unless we have these conversations, these things keep happening behind closed doors'
    'I was experiencing a mix of horror, shock and pain'
    'There's a whole complexity of issues going on around it'
    'I am worth more, and I will not accept this kind of behaviour'

    Energy Drains

    Energy Drains

    In her work as a transformational coach and nutritional therapist, Anthea specialises in helping women to gain more energy. But it's also vital to make sure that we keep that energy once we have it, and avoid energy drains that can sap the vitality from us. In this episode, Anthea discusses the many factors that can rob us of energy and what we can do to avoid them.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Clutter can lead to a loss of focus. It's nice to make areas personalised, but too much can dilute the attention we give to things that matter.Emails flood in all day long, especially if our work mails are linked with the personal. Try to have designated email times, or you might waste too much time.Social media is a great tool, but you have to use it in the correct measure. Be aware when you're falling down a rabbit hole, and don't get too caught up in negative opinions that can derail your mood.BEST MOMENTS
    'I hate being in clutter. It's not only time consuming but a major distraction'
    'My phone is constantly in my hand and I am trying to minimise that'
    'We've created a culture where we feel the need to be accessible constantly'

    Gina Miller On Taking Real Action, And The Power Of Curiosity

    Gina Miller On Taking Real Action, And The Power Of Curiosity

    Gina Miller is a renowned businesswoman, entrepreneur, politician and activist, best known for acting as the defender of our representative parliamentary democracy, having twice defeated the Conservative government in its unlawful attempts to bypass Parliament to implement Brexit.
    Gina joins Anthea to talk about what it means to take real action in the hopes of creating lasting impact and change, the most effective means of communicating ideas to the world, and the fascinating story of how she came to be where she is today.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    We must live life to the fullest each and every day. The worst tragedy would be to reach our final day on earth holding onto regrets for not having tasted all that life has to offer.Society dictates what we’re meant not to do, but it rarely instils a sense of what we can achieve if we work hard enough.It’s fine to act on things that we’re passionate about, but we should always endeavour to get our point across with grace and dignity.Academic pursuits are necessary for many aspects of life, but they’re not all that matters. Creativity, emotion and artistic expression are vital in creating fully rounded human beings.BEST MOMENTS
    ‘My family say I’m an accident waiting to happen – you never know where I’m going to explode next’
    ‘I don’t want to get old and regret what I didn’t do’
    ‘Always try and act with grace and dignity’
    ‘There are things you have to learn, but it’s not all about academia’

    Shrinking Ourselves

    Shrinking Ourselves

    Anthea talks about how we shrink ourselves metaphorically in our day to day lives - how it impacts us and what we can do to address this common phenomenon.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    First we need to answer the question: are we diminishing our achievements? When someone offers praise, do we downplay it or focus purely on the flaws?If we allow ourselves to acknowledge a compliment, no matter how uncomfortable we may feel at the time, it can act as a fantastic motivation tool.The act of diminishing ourselves and shrinking isn't exclusive to women - men suffer from it too. The ones who tend to succeed in their goals often have a great support network.BEST MOMENTS
    'Building confidence and a sense of empowerment is at the very heart of what I do'
    'The next time you receive praise, limit yourself to a smile and say thank you'
    'Are you justifying yourself unnecessarily?'

    Striking Balance Between Life And Work, and Taking Effective Action - with Sakshi Chhabra Mittal

    Striking Balance Between Life And Work, and Taking Effective Action - with Sakshi Chhabra Mittal

    Anthea is joined by Sakshi Chhabra Mittal, the founder and CEO of Foodhak, a revolutionary new food subscription delivery start-up where the emphasis is on healthy medicinal vegan meals.
    Sakshi talks to Anthea about how she took action to create one of the world's most exciting new brands, the story of how she set herself on the road to success, and how she developed her personal mission to change the world's views about food.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    People sometimes discount the effect that our diet has upon our physicality. Changes can lead to extraordinarily positive outcomes. Always consult a specialist, and look for ways to improve.Governments spend an astonishing amount of money upon healing those with chronic illnesses brought about by poor dietary habits. Instead, we should focus spending upon prevention and education so as to change attitudes towards the things we eat.We may think that the way we eat is specialised to us, but as Sakshi has discovered, there are many people out there who require a specialist diet. Building a business upon a niche can help you to tap into a hardcore, loyal following.Working out the work life balance is as simple as figuring out what you want to achieve in your career, and then figure out a life and balance around it.BEST MOMENTS
    'I found myself quite attracted on the business side of things'
    'People seem to be very sticky on topics like this'
    'I didn't take no for an answer'
    ‘Create a plan to execute on the things you are passionate about’
    ABOUT THE GUEST
    Sakshi is the Founder and CEO of FoodHak, a revolutionary new food subscription delivery start-up where the emphasis is on healthy medicinal vegan meals.
    The mother-of-two comes with a biotech background, having earned a Biotechnology degree from the University of Birmingham and an MBA from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She began her career with a four year sting at Pfizer - moving from clinical trials and regulatory affairs to manufacturing.
    Following that, she relocated to India where she saw a gap in the market for a domestic brand of textiles targeted towards the emerging middle class. She subsequently launched a domestic textiles unit for her father’s export business. The business runs profitably today.
    After turning to investment, she was poached by SoftBank in California to help manage their early stage funds in Asia and focus on healthcare growth equity investments. Sakshi led the $1billion equity investment into Roivant Sciences and has served on its board for the last five years.
    She has worked across a range of sectors but boasts particular experience in healthcare and the life sciences and says her focus is on the huge opportunities presented through the intersection of computation and biology and the role that the genomic revolution can play in addressing some of the largest issues facing society. Most of her investments are now public and have paved the way for new science/innovation in their respective fields.
    Sakshi sees businesses from both a corporate and entrepreneurial perspective. After suffering from an illness during her first pregnancy, she transformed her diet and turned flexi vegan with positive health results. She then conceived the idea to create clinically-backed meals delivered via subscription to those who wish to similarly improve their health.
    In 2021, she founded FoodHak which is seeing strong early growth.

    How Coachable Are You?

    How Coachable Are You?

    Anthea discusses the relationship between you and your potential coach, examining the question: just how coachable are you in the first place? As she explains, it isn't always enough to seek out a coach - there's also a level pf self-preparation that must take place beforehand.
    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    If you are serious about any type of goal, no matter what form it takes, it's likely that you'll end up investing in some type of support in order to get you there more quickly.If you are not actually coachable, then it may be a waste of time and money to hire a coach. It could also lead to a loss of trust within yourself when it comes to improvement.There can be a natural, subconscious desire to deflect guidance or advice when it is given to us, in the vain hope that we are self-reliant and do not need guidance. This can be misguided and can block development.Asking questions is always a positive thing. never be afraid to do so as it leads to rapid growth. Remember that you cannot possibly know everything, so it's okay to askBEST MOMENTS
    'Ask yourself how good you are at taking advice'
    'Take a little bit of ownership and self awareness'
    'Once I give myself that time to reflect, I've thought yes, that's a really good idea'
    'It's okay to keep asking questions'
