Stand Out Life is a podcast dedicated to living boldly in a busy world, with psychologist, Ali Hill.
Throughout these podcasts we sit down with influential women - and a few good men - and chat about how they live a life of purpose while making progress. We dig into their stories, both the successes and the struggles and in doing so, we get some amazing insights into what it takes to live big and ultimately how they’ve found the wins in this crazy busy world.
Let’s dive deep into what it takes to live a Stand Out Life.
Ep 116 Declan Wise & Jonathan Salfield - Riding the wave of social innovation
That old maxim about being the change you want to see in the world may belong to a bygone era, but for Byron Bay based business Afends, the consciousness around their brand stands smack bang in the middle of this truth.
With co-Founders Declan Wise and Jonathan Salfield at the helm, the fashion brand Afends continues to evolve, riding the wave of social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
In this conversation we dive into the evolution of the brand, how the co-founders Declan and Jonathan navigate business together, and where they see the evolution next for the way consumers interact and care about the brands they are associated with.
They are also at the forefront of the Hemp Revolution and we dive into an exciting new project the brand is about to launch into.
Down-to-earth. Insatiably passionate, and real to their Byron roots, enjoy this conversation with Declan Wise and Jonathan Salfied.

Ep 114 David Frizzell - Living a deliberate life
Today’s episode is one from the archives - but archives you won’t have heard before. I recorded this conversation with David in Sept of 2020 where he was reflecting on what it was like 12 months after he achieved something extraordinary - swam the English Channel.
David Frizzell is a team, leadership, communication and change consultant. He is the host of The Team Guru Podcast - which I’ve had the delight of being twice now. So it was nice to turn the table and interview Dave for a change.
The work he has done developing leaders and advising on change across large programs - from state government to multinationals - together with the ideas he steals from his podcast guests, has turned David into an opinionated bore.
In September 2019 David swam the English Channel and shared with us why this became a goal for him, the preparation and what he learnt from this experience.
You’ll be inspired to explore possibilities once you’ve listened to this conversation with David Frizzell.

Ep 113 Mary Dwyer - The Final Act of Grace
Mary Dwyer is someone that you are drawn towards. Her grace, character, and presence are palpable - and you will feel this through today’s conversation.
In her ‘day job’ she specialises working with political, business and spiritual leaders across the globe.
With a career that has seen her work with leaders from the World Bank, European Union, OECD, United Nations, the military, top level politicians, diplomats, CEO’s, boards, executive teams, whole system organizational development teams and carefully selected, high potential, emerging leaders, Mary has an uncanny ability to produce work that is dynamic, inclusive, inspiring and has an extraordinary impact.
She has also walked the path of losing her husband to cancer when he was only 50. In her book - The Final Act of Grace - she talks about this experience and how it brought her and can bring others into the light of eternal grace.
The Final Act of Grace is a profound and inspirational story about one man’s death, that left everyone present in a state of awe and watching as a soul become enlightened.
If you’ve lost or fear losing a loved one this conversation will be a balm for your soul. Soak up the wisdom and grace that is Mary Dwyer.
Ep 112 Dr Angus Hervey & Tane Hunter - Choosing Intelligent Optimism
What does a political economist and cancer scientist have in common?
Turns out a lot more than you’d think. Founders of ‘Future Crunch’ Gus Hervey and Tane Hunter share their deeply inquisitive nature about the future of work in this episode.
Future Crunch are a group of scientists, artists, researchers and entrepreneurs that believe science and technology are creating a world that is more peaceful, connected and abundant.

Enjoy this in-depth conversation with Gus and Tane.
Ep 111 Brooke McAlary - The radical art of taking time
There is little doubt that the world is in desperate need of care; however, despite the overwhelming global problems that face us, we can find ourselves caring too much, while at the same time caring too little.
Excited to share with you this episode with someone who’s on a mission to have all of us embark on the radical art of taking time; time to care.
Brooke McAlary is someone who’s not new to transformational change. Six years ago Brooke was completely overwhelmed, with the things that looked like ‘success’. She began to declutter and embark on life connected to slowing down. Best selling author of ‘Slow’ and host of the Writing a book and host on award-winning Slow Home Podcast (downloaded more than 2 million times) she encourages thousands of people every day to live a simpler, slower life.
IN this episode we dive into Brooke’s latest book - ‘Care: The radical art of taking time’. Brooke unpacks areas in our life that help us to take care - we dive into only three of these in our chat today (we may need to do a follow-up to cover the rest).
This book is tactical, practical, and completely relevant for this time where we can find ourselves being pulled in a million different directions unsure what to truly care about. (Hint it starts with you).
Take the time to soak up this conversation, and welcome the invitation that is extended to us all from the soulful Brooke McAlary.
