    Breaking Through Your Block with DJ Prequel

    Breaking Through Your Block with DJ Prequel

    On this week’s show I chat to legend of the Melbourne DJ scene, Prequel. 

    He’s just released an utterly brilliant new album called ‘Love or I Heard You Like Heartbreak’.

    I wanted to talk to him all about overcoming writer's block... and what it takes to commit to the multi-year process of creating - and releasing - his first album.

    HEROES: 'Fran Lebowitz' by DJ Prequel

    HEROES: 'Fran Lebowitz' by DJ Prequel

    TUNE IN NEXT WEEK, WHERE I CHAT TO PREQUEL ALL ABOUT HIS NEW ALBUM...

    But in the meantime, this is episode is part of a mini-series within The Passion PT Show, called ‘These Could Be Heroes’.

    I chat to legend of the Melbourne DJ scene, DJ Prequel. 

    Prequel and I chat about a hero that we both share… and it’s not what you’d expect of two guys in their 30s …

    It’s Fran Leibowitz, a New York intellectual, social commentator, sixty-something, Jewish lesbian author and speaker who has recently released a series on Netflix directed by none other than Martin Scorsese called ‘Pretend Its a City’, In which she pretty much complains about the state of the world from the city she only occasionally and begrudgingly leaves, Manhattan.

    Along with the fact that she is a poster girl for working with your creative blocks – or as she calls it a creative blockade – I wanted to discuss what it is about this day and age that makes her particular brand of Curmudgeonly nihilism so welcome. 

    Tune in next week for a more music-centric chat with prequel but in the meantime please enjoy the very first episode of These could be heroes where we discuss Fran Leibowitz.

    'How To Follow Your Passions To Find Your Purpose' with Tamica Wilder (Somatic Sex Coach)

    'How To Follow Your Passions To Find Your Purpose' with Tamica Wilder (Somatic Sex Coach)

    Does the universe give you clues over the course of your whole life as to what your true purpose is?

    In this episode I’m talking to Tamica Wilder, a bodywork & somatic sex coach. 

    One of the reasons why I reached out to Tamica is because I noticed her online presence growing recently with her finding bite-size palatable ways for her to share her ideas to her community in a way that allows her to define her brand and grow her offering.

    In this chat you'll hear points about:
    The benefit of working with a coach-led think tank to level-up your business practices
    DIY Branding: How to tell YOUR story YOUR way - and knowing what your industry expects - so that you can DEFY EXPECTATION
    Tamica shares a great tool that you can use to make a first step towards working out your brand's look and feel.
    We discuss gathering research and being hyper aware of what else is around vs. creating in a bubble (hint: there's no 'right' way to create)
    The importance of showing up to the page or the screen or the camera or the instrument - regardless of how you feel... because if you waited until you felt ' inspired' you may never get anything done
    The importance of boundary setting and scheduling to balance life demands (like having multiple human being to take care of)

    'How To Give Your Brand CULT STATUS' with Tim Duggan (Junkee Media founder; Author 'Cult Status')

    'How To Give Your Brand CULT STATUS' with Tim Duggan (Junkee Media founder; Author 'Cult Status')

    My guess today is Tim Duggan who is the founder and editor of Junkee Media. 
    Tim has just released a book called 'Cult Status', which I read in the lead up to having a chat. It's such a palatable and effortless read… well, 'listen' in that, I actually consumed it in a couple of days via Audible because I’m a self-confessed terrible reader.
    I wanted to talk to Tim because not only has he built largest millennial media platform in the country, but has found a way to continually reinvent Junkee's offering in a digital landscape where the only constant is change.
    I’ve known Tim for over 10 years – I was once a night club doorman at the Melbourne branch of a night he used to run with none other than Courtney Act called 'Disgraceland' and so we’ve always been on each other’s radars. 
    When I heard he was writing his first book about lessons learned in launching – and sustaining – a millennial media empire,  I couldn’t wait to learn from one of the countries best most pragmatic geniuses of creative business - and certainly one of the nicest.
    Cult Status contains magnificently practical and fun way to workshop your own business or brand in order to understand how to make it "sticky" – irresistible to your audience for the purpose of breeding a rabid fan base.
    In this chat, we discuss:
    Discovering your superpower - and using it to create an offering that resonates.
    How Tim transformed his schedule in order to find the time to write his first book.
    How Tim works with writers block - not against it.
    Why the most important part of any good idea is action


    This conversation is relevant for anyone looking to launch any sort of creative project, whether it be a business or brand or a rock band.You’re nothing without the support of an audience. remember: it's not enough just to have a talent - you have to have a talent for your talent.
    For more on Tim / his amazing book 'Cult Status' check out the show notes. http://cultstatus.com/
    In this podcast, Tim also references 'The Miracle Morning' by Hal Elrod:https://miraclemorning.com/

    Reach Your Goals Faster by Working with a Coach: Jerico Mandybur - Part II

    Reach Your Goals Faster by Working with a Coach: Jerico Mandybur - Part II

    This is a second instalment of my chat with best-selling author, award-winning coach and founding editorial director of Girl Boss, the women's media empire, Jerico Mandybur.


    If you didn't catch last week's ep of this podcast, it's a great place to hear about Jerico's career origin story - and the path that lead her to  combine her career in journalism and her passion for tarot and spiritual eclecticism.


    The reason why I wanted to check back in with Jerico is because so much time had passed since we last spoke - I think there was about 6 months between recording and posting the episode, due to my own delays around rebranding my podcast - which meant it was also a great opportunity to discuss the frustrations that all creatives have with balancing the demands of work and the calling of our passions.


    This time around the episode is hot off the press, and I spoke to Jerico while she was in hotel quarantine, having just returned to Australia from living and working in LA.


    I loved talking to Jerico so much, what was meant to be a 30 minute check in ended up as a 90 minute shequel episode - but we just had to keep on going til it all stopped flowing.


    Some of the topics we discuss in the chat are:
    The practical ways to be both ambitious & goal-oriented - while also avoiding overworking
    How to structure your day for maximum productivity when you work for yourself
    How to fit writing a book into an otherwise full working life.
    How she developed her own unique visual aesthetic
    How she works with clients as a coach and branding & editorial consultant
    When is the best time to seek out a coach or consultant?

    'The Practical Magic of Balancing Self Care & Career' with Jerico Mandybur (Neo Tarot, Girl Boss)

    'The Practical Magic of Balancing Self Care & Career' with Jerico Mandybur (Neo Tarot, Girl Boss)

    In today's episode chat I'll be talking to best-selling author and spiritual coach, Jerico Manydbur.


    I first discovered Jerico through her ‘Tarot Card of the Week Readings’ on Instagram - I love Jerico's candid, cool approach to tarot - turning it into something that felt as quotidian as a green smoothie.

    Last year, Jerico published her own tarot deck, Neo Tarot. Besides being some of the most beautifully illustrated, they are unique in that they are both gender non-binary and present a wide array of racial archetypes. True to form, the accompanying book presents a practical explanation of each card offering actionable next steps to further self-awareness, tying the entire practice to wellness - as opposed to an immovable fate that you have no control over.


    I wanted to talk to Jerico about the career path that lead her from Oyster Mag in Australia to being head-hunted by Sophia Amoruso to be the editorial director of Girl Boss. We also talk about:
    How to Avoid burnout by looking out for the signs. One month of rest could save 6 months of recovery down the track
    How to know which lane to pick when it comes to building a career that has real meaning and resonates with you
    The importance of committing to 'the long game' to create a career that you love

    And
    How to navigate supporting yourself financially while you support yourself creatively - the great juggling act.

     

    I spoke to Jerico while she was based in LA and we had some sound issues  for the first part of this chat, so if you are an audio snob jump ahead to the 35 minute mark - however if you do stick around there is some gold to be had in the first half an hour.Jerico has is now back in Australia and offering her skills as a consultant, so for anyone who wants to leverage the skills she has gleaned from a decade defining some of the coolest brands in the world, get in touch with her via jericomandybur.com
