    How To Recalibrate Your Views & Values For Success with Aluba Fenix

    How To Recalibrate Your Views & Values For Success with Aluba Fenix

    I am deeply honored to share the screen with Aluba Fenix, an executive coach and sports psychologist with over 20 years of experience. In this episode, Aluba emphasizes the constant need to reset and recalibrate our views and values, focusing on aligning the mindset and spirit and unlocking the full potential of an individual or a team in achieving high-performance outcomes.
    There is still an awful lot of work to do to make the corporate world more human. Business leaders need to recognize their duty to care for their teams and implement approaches and programs acknowledging that we are working with humans (and not machines).
    The biggest skill that we lack as a modern society is an openness to conduct respectful dialogues. We struggle to listen to dissenting voices other than our own. We're only looking for information confirming our beliefs and losing the humility that we could be wrong. Whether in Business or how we run governments, we urgently need to shift around this inadequacy that creates polarization and contempt among ourselves. 
    Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - post-COVID.  How people are shamed for their medical decisions and different groups taking a stand for and against vaccination to demonize each other. Marginalizing people who are saying no on this issue is a question of how we've really embraced diversity.

    Serial Entrepreneur Amber Renae Speaks On The Business Of Chasing Summers And Dreams

    Serial Entrepreneur Amber Renae Speaks On The Business Of Chasing Summers And Dreams

    Before she became a style icon, an influencer and built a successful business on the internet, Amber Renae was a civil engineer working on a construction site building roads and bridges. Her entrepreneurial journey is a giant roller coaster of success and failures that she rode and overcame again and again. 
    In this episode, Amber shares her biggest lessons of learning how to delegate and asking for help from others, removing the ego from all she's created and finally achieving freedom by building a business around a life she loves.
    Fifteen years ago, Amber recalled taking the plunge by leaving her good, solid paying job following the dream of starting a fashion label. She began with a sewing machine, sold four shirts to boutiques in Queensland and Brisbane, and had 120 accounts around the world five years later. They did runway shows and influencer marketing, dressing Paris Hilton along with many other celebrities before anyone was doing anything like this. 
    Success was halted as Amber's overseas manufacturer went out of business, took her out of business and left her bankrupt. "I didn't believe in support or getting help. I believed in doing everything myself. I ended up in hospital having a nervous breakdown, cancer, and stomach ulcers and worked myself to death at that point."

    Get In Your Happy Zone and Trigger Flow with Nature

    Get In Your Happy Zone and Trigger Flow with Nature

    For business leaders Jade Green and Kyle Probert, nothing effectively quiets the "monkey mind" as well as the sun, the sea and the waves. 
    As surfers, it takes loads of patience to spot the perfect wave, to wait for it to come and pick them up. It can look quite effortless for some when they can ride at the right place every time. What is important is taking the time to slow down and eventually speed up. 
    Tune to the Barrels & Business show — Get In Your Happy Zone and Trigger Flow with Nature.
    Key points covered in this episode: 
    [00:01:29] Welcome to the show! Kyle and Jade talk about their impromptu sabbatical for two days.
    [00:03:48] Jade shares her first custom board, and her #1 prized possession in the entire world — her eight-foot longboard.
    [00:06:07] On why people use surfing for flow and why they use it to teach people to get into the flow as well. 
    [00:07:27] The value of getting recharged by the ocean and quieting our busy, nagging minds
    [00:09:35] The benefits of riding a bike or running in nature trumps running a treadmill or riding a stationary bike at home
    [00:13:10] Jade explains that surfing teaches the hard lessons of being patient, waiting for the perfect wave, enjoying the process, holding your center, achieving being in your power zone, standing up, and catching the perfect waves, whether in the water or any aspect of life.
    [00:15:39] The value of grounding yourself, clearing your energy and giving yourself permission to go out there and just have fun. 
    [00:21:42] Instead of wasting time and procrastinating for three hours, Kyle recommends an alternative
    [00:24:31] Do you take a few minutes each day to ground yourself and clear your energy? Do your mind and heart a favor and devote a portion in your 24 hours to keep you centered, happy and focused.

    How To Create Lifelong Bonds Through Adversity with Jason Everett

    How To Create Lifelong Bonds Through Adversity with Jason Everett

    Teams that don't bond won't build a solid business. 
    According to high energy trainer, speaker, and mentor Jason Everett, many companies still have not gotten away with boring training in the boardroom. In this episode of Barrels and Business, Jason dives deep into the role of games and play in creating special activities that increase team performance and how transformational experiences drive energy into individuals or organizations. 
    Watch ▶️ How Do You Create Lifelong Bonds Through Adversity with Jason Everett.
    Key points covered in this episode: 
    [00:06:02] Welcome to the show, Jason! He shares his earlier volunteer experience with Big Brothers Big Sisters in the US as the most meaningful example of why bonding moments are the best life teachers.
    [00:09:45] Jason shares the value of his first fire walk and ice bath experience in the presence of other participants. "The difference of 10,000 people in one mindset to do something versus a couple of people supporting you versus if I would just do it by myself is drastically different. Finding a perfect group with 12 to 20 people is a good place to start and do it."
    [00:12:44] Lessons from driving rally cars and the efficiency of learning from play and games can make one a different person. 
    Jason Everett is a 3rd generation business owner with a passion for living life, not 100% defined by work. Over the last 10 years, he has worked with hundreds of businesses, and thousands of individuals turn up their performance and get more from their efforts! Jason works exclusively with people who believe that good enough doesn't exist and that nothing is impossible. He loves helping achieve something people thought was out of their reach, and now it's the new standard.
