The Freedom Fridays Podcast started as Pete Clark's weekly experiment with time and focus. Where the aim over an 8 week period was to reclaim Fridays and make them a day free from the constraints of work. The podcast has since evolved and Fridays have become a metaphor. It's about moving from 'I have to' to 'I choose to'.

    This week Pete chatted with Anne Neilan who made the big switch from big corporate to running her own business – Neilan Digital, a boutique digital marketing agency for small business.

    Episode #33 Freedom Fridays Podcast with Tom Gleeson

    Episode #33 Freedom Fridays Podcast with Tom Gleeson

    This week Pete chats with Tom Gleeson – farm boy to fighter pilot.

    We explore Tom’s journey from growing up on a farm to flying F18 jets. We touch on the necessity and impact of a relentless and forensic win-learn-change mindset. We discuss how he built the capability to see order in chaos whilst flying a multi-million dollar piece of government kit at up to 1000 mph in the middle of an airborne dog fight. We also reflect on what lessons he’d carried into his career and life in the present day.

    Episode #32 Freedom Fridays Podcast

    This week Pete returns to a solo episode. R U OK? has been prominent this week and Pete shares some of his own thoughts about whether he's OK? The answer is yes, but Pete talks about his willingness to surrender, his pattern of closing in to protect himself, especially in relationships, and trying to burst through the story that everything needs to be tied up in a bow.
