My 16 year Entrepreneurial journey.
As I am in the depths of launching my new company and entering into an entirely new, disruptive and exciting industry, being crypto / NFT's the digital space, I knew it was time to sit down and record my 16 year journey into Entrepreneurship to date.
Many (if not most) don't know I actually launched my very first business at 18 taking out a business loan that was 50% of my yearly income at the time which began my journey into the business world.
From there I earned 7 figures in Network Marketing and then multiple six figures in my first year of launching my Self-Love School, but in this episode I take you through the stories and lessons I have learned so far, and why I believe my background and appetite to take risks and read trends is so important in this next evolution for me.
Are filters hurting or helping you?
In this episode I talk all things filters - of the social media variety - and how I truly believe they are todays biggest body dysmorphia (and have been for years).
I hear it all of the time, "I only use the really natural ones" or "I only use them sometimes and besides everyoneeee uses them". And ANY reason you use them is completely fine, because they're your reasons, but in this episode I simply speak to the points that are they honestly actually helping you? Or hurting you.
There's a challenge right at the end too if you're so called, and although IG still has me shadow banned, if you DO take up the challenge, I'd love to (try to be) tagged so I can see your natural beautiful faces at @thereal_annarose
The story & lessons from my first Half Ironman.
Back in June 2021, I competed in my very first half ironman (a 70.3). I had only gotten into triathlon as a sport 1 year earlier, having not been able to swim, never really having ridden a bike & not being a great runner.
So in my first year to have completed 8 triathlon and then into my first half ironman, is something I will never not be deeply proud of.
If you haven't already, go back and listen to Episode 52, "My story that broke me then made me & inspired me into my half ironman" because in it, I go through in to the VERY big why about what inspired me into competing in my first half, and the bigness of it all.
'Tying' this chapter off in my life, felt big and emotional. I recorded this shortly after finishing the race, I just never had uploaded it, but it's now time.
p.s I went on to compete & race in a 2nd half ironman less than 6 months later. And still have an episode coming on the lessons from that too!
I’m BACK & oh so happy about it.
After more than 9 months off the podcast feeling, healing & grieving from my marriage separation and getting back into the dating world I am officially BACK. And not back then disappearing again. Back BACK, and this time I'm not going anywhere.
I have given my life and those that were directly connected to it the time and space & respect of silence now, but it's time & I do feel I can show back up again in my fullest truth.
If you've listened to any episode prior to this one you know I speak the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I don't edit or censor my words or feelings, so to have given a weekly voice to what I have gone through, healed and dealt with both from a separation AND dating perspective, wouldn't have respected those who wanted privacy. But it's been 12 months now, and as a woman who is healed and whole, I'm ready to spit a lot of new fire and sermons of truth with the world again.
There'll be honest conversations about dating as a 34 year old (after not for 14 years), sex, love, heartbreak, launching new businesses and everything in between.
And I can't wait to have you all back along for the journey again.
My story that broke me then made me & inspired me into my Half Ironman.
This episode comes with a BIG trigger warning. This is my story. A story of a decade long of sexual abuse by a trusted family friend from our church. In this almost hour-long conversation, I share some of my stories from as young as I can remember of how I was groomed, molested, & eventually raped. I talk about how I became healed & whole and why I am finally ready to share my whole story.
It is this story, my past, that was the ultimate inspiration for enrolling in my first half ironman. At the time of recording this episode (it was May 26th when I sat down to record), I explain how I have gone from 11 years ago being broken, dead on the inside & wanting to die to being 11 days out to competing in my first half ironman & loving myself unconditionally.
When we share – we heal – and this is my final paragraph in this chapter of reclaiming my FULL power & strength with this story. My story.

My voice & words on Morgs & I's seperation
For 50 episodes on our space here in the Podcast world, whether we recorded episodes together or our solo chats, Morgs & I had launched & laughed our way through conversation after conversation bringing you tonnes of laughs (& some tears!). And now, as we navigate this new chapter of our lives, with a desire for privacy & respect for each other, I couldn’t NOT at least acknowledge this big life change in my own energy before I continue on with the podcast.

Love the conversation with Peta!
I loved what you talked about and the distinction of food vs habits. I have believed and lived this for like 25 years! I live healthy, eat healthy and do the supplements, superfoods etc so I can also enjoy things that don’t fall into this category guilt free because 80-90% of time I honour my body with health supporting choices. So well done for helping people understand and hopefully explore this way of living and being! ❤️
