    John Millman

    John Millman

    John Millman is an Australian professional tennis player who has managed to reach number 33 in the world. In this episode of 120 Grit he chats to us about how he took an unusual path getting into the game and how hard he had to work on his journey towards success.

    We talk about everything that has happened to him along the way, from sleeping in train stations in Milan, to recovering from a potentially career-ending shoulder injury, all the way to playing and winning against Roger Federer. Coming from such a high pressure background means that John brings us some really valuable insights about managing mental health, mindfulness and cultivating great support networks.

    We hope you enjoy listening to this one just as much as we enjoyed recording it.

    Ben Ashmole

    Ben Ashmole is the creative director and cofounder at connect creative media with a passion for telling stories, connecting people and growing businesses. Ben is also a really great mate of TradeMutt and the TIACS foundation having crossed paths with Ed and I on a number of occasions and now taking the reigns helping us produce this very podcast. Every time Ben comes into our office, he will catch us just as we are taking a deep dive into another philosophical topic around mental health and TradeMutt as a business. We always get carried away together in some incredibly insightful conversation and so we figured that it was only right that we record a conversation together.

    Hailing from Manchester, England, Ben had a crack at becoming a professional footballer, however when his dream didn't come to fruition, a search for self and identity took Ben on a journey that many young men have experienced before him. However Ben's openness in sharing his experiences is what sets him apart form many. This conversation takes a ride through topics from our own business, TradeMutt, to things like the impact of diet on our health, Bens experience of mental health and anxiety, to what it's like to have an awesome experience through therapy with a few funny yarns about sleep walking slipped in there as well.

    Matt Boyce

    In this week's podcast, we sat down with Carpenter and founder of the Human Connection Project, Matt Boyce. Boycie made the move over to Brisbane from Perth in his late teens chasing a professional football dream. However, Instead of an NRL contract, Boycie found himself a best mate, Justin, who very quickly became like a brother. Over the course of five years, the pair forged incredibly strong mateship. However, a tragic surf trip accident led to Justin sustaining a head injury that ended his life. This tragedy was the catalyst taking Boycie into an emotional decline, battling grief and depression at the same time. In the two years following, Boycie realised just how important having solid and genuine human connection was to his state of mind and how desperately he was missing it in his own life.

    Boycie recognised through his own mental health struggles that Australians are spending increasingly less time connecting with one another which is gravely impacting our mental health. As we have become busier and more digitally connected than ever, we have become the most socially disconnected generation in human history. The act of connecting and enjoying a conversation with family, friends and acquaintances has become somewhat of a lost art. The Human Connection Project exists for one simple reason, to bring back the art of connection.
