Trent Maxwell, Firefighter and better known as Bondi Rescue’s Lifeguardmaxi and business partner Leigh Mason founded Live Learn Survive in 2018 with a vision to save lives by making learning fun.
Author of the award-winning Maxi the Lifeguard book series, 2021 saw Maxi & Leigh publish their first picture book and launch Maxi’s Rescue Squad, the largest global community of teens & young adults of all ages learning skills, to not only look after themselves, but to help others too.
They take what they do very seriously, themselves not so much, as you will see as they share the story of how they have met, face to face,12,000 children & teens so far travelling to 30 cities across 4 countries.
From one page on a notepad in a café to books and a squad in over 24 countries, come along for the ride with this unlikely duo, share in some fun, inspiration and hear about a few random acts of kindness that will warm your heart.
So lets, Live, Learn and Survive together, so that we can all live life to the Max!
Maxi's 30th Birthday and all things 1991!
We’re kicking off Maxi’s 30th Birthday weekend with lots of messages and trivia from the year Maxi was born! What were we wearing, watching and listening to? Who won in sport that year and we add the song to the Playlist that was No 1 on the day Maxi was born. Happy Birthday Maxi!
Stay focused, stay hydrated and stay in your lane.
Focus is tough right now, for everyone so how do we do it? We remember our friends at South Shields Volunteer Lifeguard Club that painted Maxi on a wall, more great songs added to our playlist and does Maxi love or hate rollercoasters? You might get a surprise on this one?
Positive mind, positive vibes, positive life.
This week we talk about the importance of keeping a positive mindset and how much you will benefit from it. We remember when Maxi met our dear friend Cam and the Starlight Foundation and what would happen if Maxi joined the circus!
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage!
Stepping out of our comfort zone is a good thing and opens up new opportunities. We remember when we met a vet from Wagga Wagga in a café in a Yorkshire village and why Maxi really wants you to watch the water before you dive straight into the ocean, it could save your life!
Strive for progress, not perfection.
If we are moving forward, then that is progress and a win in these crazy times for any business. We talk about the random act of kindness when we surprise Maggie by stopping to have a cup of tea with her in Manchester and how we have dived straight in doing something positive with a High Tea Fundraiser which will donate books to school libraries. What news will Maxi have for us this week from Sydney’s frontline? Thank you so much for stopping by to listen.
Don't wait for the right opportunity, create it!
Don’t wait for the right opportunity, create it! So, what are you waiting for? Just get started is the key to anything so if you have a great idea, just go for it! We talk about the time we took surf boards on the train in London for Tourism Australia, Maxi has a Bondi Rescue update, a few tips for runners and we hear all about his unfortunate trip to work today.
Love being part of the squad and getting to learn new things but also to listen to these podcast every Friday is always such a pleasure.
