    Gemma & Emma Podcast - Justine Murphy

    Gemma & Emma Podcast - Justine Murphy

    Justine Murphy’s childhood through her mid-twenties was one of abuse, neglect, malnutrition and heartache. Repeatedly let down by those around her, she clung to the glimmers of joy brought to her through food – from the first person to show her genuine love, to the jobs that enabled her moments of freedom, friendships and the possibility of belief – it was this recurring theme that became the light with which she would pull herself out of the darkness, and from which she found not only her salvation, but her future: a future full of love, happiness, strength and pride.

    She made her final escape at the age of 25, leaving the UK in pursuit of forging a career for herself as a chef on super yachts. Finally swapping misery for joy, it was a career that led to her meeting her husband, settling down – in the beautiful island of Mallorca – and creating the family she had always dreamed of. It was also the seed that ignited her vision and dream for creating a business around the very things that had enabled her to heal: good food, and good people.

    Now in its eighth year, mymuybueno is a highly successful international company with seven divisions, but it is Justine's core values and commitment to maintaining the personal touch that really make her company stand out from the crowd. Built from the ground up, the group now includes an award-winning deli, chef and interior staffing agencies, a cookery school, concierge and lifestyle management service, bespoke events and luxuryware divisions – all with the connection between good food and good people at the very heart of them.

    Justine works to build community creating a Woman in Business group, with monthly events that enable women to come together to share, inspire and support each other. She is committed to helping others live a better quality of life, and to bringing people together. And with food having been such a core part of her life, particularly in the transition from a life of pain and hurt into one of happiness, it is through her latest endeavour, The mymuybueno Cookbook, that she is ready to share everything on a bigger scale: where she is sharing her story, her food, and the philosophy by which she now lives her life – and that enables her to juggle being a successful businesswoman with being a wife and mother – in order to help inspire and encourage others.

    William Murtha Bio

    With a successful 30-year corporate background in sales, production and construction, William worked on many of the UK’s most popular TV and outdoor productions. These included: Glastonbury Festival, ITV’s The Cube, Strictly Come Dancing, The Baftas, and The Brits. In 2004, he decided to sell his share in the Devon based company he had founded, and instead concentrated solely on developing his new business interest, TLC-Transformational Leadership Coaching.
    Now trained and accredited with The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) in London, he coaches high performers from a wide range of sectors including, Leaders and Directors within the corporate world, elite sports, creatives and TV personalities. Helping clients to identify their core strengths and capacities, William helps them to develop greater resilience, grit and personal focus.
    Working closely with Organizational Development Psychologists and global experts in the field of Leadership and Management studies, he supports high achievers to attain greater all round balance. By helping them to challenge old mindsets and self-sabotaging habits, he assists clients to understand what is really road-blocking their path towards peak performance and well-being.
    The author of two best-selling books, the second-Visionaries-involved interviewing over 500 pioneering innovators. Trying to understand the success habits, attitudes and growth mindset approach of people at the top of any given profession, he mapped the common patterns of behaviour that often led to fulfilling, successful and happy careers.
    Drawing insights and wisdom from both the elite sports performers and the business world, William took a particular interest in many of the innovative people management strategies seen across Silicon Valley in California. What he discovered about innovation and creativity in the Tech world totally altered his philosophy around corporate leadership, and this ultimately inspired him to lean more heavily into Transformational Leadership theories.
    A third publication, Create Your Own LIFE Story, (a self-coaching book), publishes in early 2020. With 5 daughters, (and 5 partners to boot), William and his wife Jayne enjoy a very hectic life.
