    #131 Creating Your Own Path to Success - Richie Kyriacou

    Welcome the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast!

    In this episode
    Welcome to the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast!
    It’s the last week of our International Men’s Month Special where I've invited four inspiring men onto the show. In this episode I speak with Richie Kyriacou, a Mindset, Career and Life Coach and founder of Reset With Richie
    Prior to this, Richie had a successful career in banking, but wasn't coping with the stress. He sat in the backseat and watched as everything happened to him. Tired of his way of life, he looked for solutions in both good and bad places. The good ones helped him gain more confidence and approach stress in a more peaceful manner.
    He then started to excel at work, getting promotion after promotion. However, he still felt unfulfilled. That’s when he decided to share what he had learned with others, so they can avoid undue stress and start living their ideal life and enjoying the career and relationships they deserved. He took the hard decision to quit his corporate job and move full-time into coaching.

    Today, he helps professionals around the world, who are holding back their true value, unlock their confidence and excel - their way. His intuitive counselling style is recognised for achieving astonishingly positive results that change lives.
    Don't miss this episode as Richie shares his story and how self-awareness can help you start delivering your value, be recognised for it and do it all with more clarity, calm and confidence. 
     
    "Try and find someone who has an understanding, experience and skill set to help you find your answers. That will accelerate your self-awareness and in turn, your happiness." -Richie Kyriacou
     
    Highlights
    In this value-packed episode you'll learn:
    The importance of taking a step back and reflecting. An easy method to achieve self-awareness. How the ‘questions in your head’ help you make wiser decisions. How to filter those questions to align with your core value. How to let go of the fear of rejection. Strategies for safeguarding your mental health.  
    "Take care of yourself first. There are different ways of doing it but what’s important is to stick to it." -Richie Kyriacou
     
    About Richie
    Richie coaches hard-working professionals that feel they're not going in the right direction. They feel they're not displaying their true value and it's showing up in the likes of fear, frustration, self-doubt and just a lack of confidence to be themselves. 
    Richie takes them on a journey of self-awareness so they can start delivering their value, be recognised for it and do it all with more clarity, calm and confidence. He left his senior leadership position in corporate as he knew he had to spend the working hours of the day helping others find their own solutions to their struggles.

    In this episode
    Welcome to the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast!
    It’s the third week of our International Men’s Month Special where I've invited four inspiring men onto the show. In this episode I speak with Tony Johnston, an Emmy Award-Winning journalist, digital content producer, and the Founding Director of Tony Johnston Media
    Tony was first exposed to journalists at a young age through his father, who worked in the publishing sector. This inspired him towards the path of becoming a journalist himself. He subsequently began working with Australian broadcast businesses, which led him to Switzerland where he got the chance to work for SwissInfo and World Radio Switzerland.
    After a few years of finding where he fits and finding his rhythm, an opportunity finally came up where he could start doing his own thing. This is when he started his own business.

    Now, he produces material of the highest calibre and helps Swiss enterprises, NGOs, and other global corporations generate powerful content that will enthral and inspire their target audiences through the power of storytelling.
    Don't miss this episode as Tony talks about his journey and the reason it's crucial to always begin with a story that will effectively, succinctly, and compellingly communicate your key message before taking any action.
     
    "Stories are how we connect, it's how we make sense of the world. This is what makes them so powerful." -Tony Johnston
     
    Highlights
    In this value-packed episode you'll learn:
    How to identify the distinctive quality about yourself that will captivate people. The significance of tapping into your own professional and personal life experience.  An approach to being prepared while retaining spontaneity. How to build your self-confidence so you can tell your story. A manageable way to use your story to produce something good. The importance of limiting the number of your key messages to keep your story concise.  
    "Storytelling can be a very powerful way of sharing your experience and demonstrating through example." -Tony Johnston
     
    About Tony
    As an intuitive media all-rounder, Tony has been fortunate to have worked across a broad range of studio, location and event-based television, radio programs and online projects. From content creation, corporate video, moderating events, media training, script writing and social media campaigns.
    Over his career, Tony has enjoyed an incredible variety of multimedia experiences on award-winning domestic and international programs. I hosted the arrival of the Sydney 2000 Olympic flame, broadcast from the top of an active volcano in the South Pacific and created Bully Free®, a leading anti-bullying education program.
    Passionate about Switzerland, Sustainable Innovation, Clean Energy, Organics, Human Rights and Australian Aboriginal Culture. Tony lives to share stories that make a positive difference in our world.

    #129 Unleash the Masterpiece Within You - Alexander Inchbald

    In this episode
    Welcome to the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast!
    It’s the second week of our International Men’s Month Special where I've invited four inspiring men onto the show. In this episode I speak with Alexander Inchbald, a Climate artist, a Bestselling Author and the Founder of #Masterpiece Movement.
    Alexander was extremely passionate about art from an early age, but stopped painting as a teenager after being told he “wasn't creative enough”. After a string of successful corporate jobs and on the edge of a burnout, he spent time in the mountains that set him on a path that led him back to painting. 
    However, it was a prompt from a mentor to go and paint outside that really changed his life. 
    Today, he helps the pioneers, Changemakers, misfits, crazy ones, and artists with wild ideas amongst us to use their unique gifts to create our Masterpiece—a portal to a sustainable ecosystem. 
    Don't miss this episode as Alexander discusses his passion and how he helped spearhead an expanding new paradigm by encouraging people to align with their inner nature by teaching and inspiring others to create their own #Masterpiece.
     
    "When you stop resisting whatever is outside you, something remarkable happens.That's where all mystical experiences occur beyond the mind, what we refer to as miracles." -Alexander Inchbald
     
    Highlights
    In this value-packed episode you'll learn:
    The different strands of doubt and how to handle them. How art can transform the way you think. The importance of embracing and working with challenge, instead of resisting it. Who a Rainmaker is. How you may use your body and mind as tools. The importance of going out of your mind to be able to use it.  
    "If you really want to simplify your life, do what you love, experience more bliss, and see if you can extend that time just a little bit. Therein lies the secret of all creation." -Alexander Inchbald
     
    About Alexander
    Alexander is on a mission to help 10,000 Rainmakers to create their Masterpiece. He is the founder of the #Masterpiece Movement, a growing community of pioneers, changemakers, misfits and rebels. Together with other like minded communities they are creating a system that will sustain humankind. 
    Everything he does is based on his mystical experiences painting around the world. These experiences have helped him to realise we are not passive participants in a universe beyond our control, but active creators of our own playground. 
    He is a bestselling author a few times over, has worked on all of the UN’s SDGs and lives with his family in Switzerland.

    #128 The Power of Speaking YOUR Message - Christopher Lübbers

    Welcome the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast!
    The weekly show that helps you dream bigger and achieve more in your business, by learning what works from successful female entrepreneurs.
     
    In this episode
    Welcome to the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast!
    This November we'll be doing something a little bit different. 
    Since it's International Men's Month, I've invited four inspiring men onto the show. The podcast's mission, however, remains the same: to motivate you to dream bigger and achieve more by providing you with fresh insights, useful resources, and guidance from successful business tactics.
    In this episode I speak with Christopher Lübbers, the founder of Lübbers | The Power of Speech and Speaker Coach for TEDxLausanne.
    Chris had long been interested in public speaking and at university he sought out opportunities to stand in front of people and established a club with fellow students to help him learn and practice. 
    These skills helped him to stand out as a competent communicator during his subsequent career in the hospitality industry. However, seeing just how much his colleagues valued help with their own communications, and how a fear of speaking was holding back some of his brilliant colleagues, he decided to take a leap of faith and start his own business as a speaker coach. 
    Today he helps entrepreneurs, mostly women, to speak with confidence and engage audiences so they can share their message, just the way they intended - and without having to learn lots of new skills in the process, but embrace who they already are. 
    Don't miss this episode as Chris shares his passion for speaking and some incredible tips to help you build trust in your own abilities, and what it really takes to speak on a TEDx stage (it’s not what you might think!).
     
    "The first step to being comfortable on stage is to be mindful and be just open enough to pick the strategy to test the water that works for you." -Christopher Lübbers
     
    Highlights
    In this value-packed episode you'll learn:
    A manageable way to feel more comfortable in front of an audience. Why prioritising self-care will help you find your true purpose. What prevents women from being confident on stage. How to include the right amount of vulnerability and depth of insight when speaking publicly. The one thing that will help you sell from stage with authenticity.  What it takes to become a good public speaker. Why everyone can be a great storyteller. "If we focus on how the people feel then they will feel seen as an individual and that's what they'll connect to, and you won't have to sell anymore." -Christopher Lübbers
     
    About Christopher
    After seeing how his own public speaking journey enhanced his career, while opening the door to many hidden opportunities, he felt compelled to share what he'd learned. 
    He’s convinced that you already have more of the skills needed to speak up and lead with confidence and joy than you may realize. He’s made it his mission to help you uncover those skills, sharpen your story, and confidently inspire the world with your message.
    His message to you: It’s time your message was heard just the way you feel it!

    In this episode
    Today we have a very special episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
    As this is such an important topic as 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, so this week I invited four guests to join me: 
    Sapna Pieroux who was diagnosed BC in August and is currently recovering from surgery.
    Judit Csapo who was diagnosed five years ago and has recently pivoted her business and retrained to support more women through their cancer and health journey.
    Catherine Schopfer an online cancer coach who has been supporting women with their lifestyle and purpose for the decade following her own cancer journey, and 
     
    Dr. Cecilia Serban a medical doctor who worked with terminal cancer patients and who now focuses on helping women optimise their health and lifestyle. 
    We'll talk about how each of them has experienced the condition in a unique but equally significant way, as well as how they're each managing it. They will discuss their varied perspectives as patients, survivors, professionals and most of all, as women.
    Don’t miss this empowering episode as these four courageous ladies will inspire and motivate you to enjoy greater health, wellbeing and happiness as they show you that this needn’t be a journey of illness, but one of empowerment!
     
    "It's time to communicate openly about breast cancer and to stop stigmatising the disease." -Sapna Pieroux
     
    Highlights
    You will learn so much in this value-packed breast cancer awareness special:
    Sapna Pieroux
    Why publicly sharing her experience was so important for her  Why and how she told her two boys about her diagnosis Why her doctor called breast cancer an Affluent Disease. What guidance, based on her experiences, would she provide others. Judit Csapo
    How she managed the roller coaster of emotions in her cancer journey. Why she refers to her experience with cancer as a health journey How her experience had lead her to pivot her business to coach and support other women navigating their own health journeys following a cancer diagnosis.  
    "When going through this health journey, it is important to create a supportive social circle and a non-toxic environment." -Judit Csapo
     
    Catherine Schopfer
    Why she calls cancer her friend. What women can do to lower their risk of developing breast cancer. The significant trends she has identified during her ten years of helping other breast cancer survivors that she believes women should be aware of right away.

    Dr. Cecilia Serban
    Her experience supporting breast cancer patients and their families What each physician wants their cancer patients to be aware of. The one questions every woman should ask their doctor after learning they have cancer, but few do. What can women do to assist their own medical care.  
    "When you are happy, when you are yourself, you feel this energy and the cells feel the same way. This is a means of self-defence or prevention." -Catherine Schopfer
     
    You’ll also hear all four women discussing:
    Why they firmly believe that you don’t have to stand alone in your journey. Exactly what to do (and not do) to support a friend with breast cancer. How to manage your business around your cancer treatments.
