Meeting through a mutual friend, the three guys come from a range of backgrounds, with two owning their own media companies and the other a law graduate.

    What It's Like... to be Niamh Tallon

    On today’s episode, I’m chatting to founder of Her Sport, a media platform focused on bringing audiences the latest Irish and international women’s sports news. Involved in sports from as early as she could remember, this week’s guest has tried her hand at pretty much everything from ballet to soccer but it was swimming that captured her attention and made her fall in love with competition. Leaving the sport behind to focus on studies at age 17, it wasn’t until university that she rediscovered her passion for the pool in an attempt to widen her social circles and opened her eyes to something she had been fortunately shielded from for most of her life - inequality for women in sports. A topic that stayed with her after college, she decided to take her digital marketing skills and use them to create an online platform that celebrated women in sport and gave them a mouthpiece like never before. Two years on, Her Sport is making waves and growing by the day. Sharing how she did it, here’s what it’s like to be Niamh Tallon.

    What It's Like... to be Marty Guilfoyle

    On today’s episode, I’m chatting to one of Ireland’s favourite DJ’s and radio hosts. Tuning in to a show whilst studying one day, this week’s guest knew he had a love for broadcast from the moment he heard it. Calling up his local station asking for a slot soon led to numerous opportunities that would shape the stellar resume he’s created thus far. Working at stations such as Beat, Spin 1038 and Spin SouthWest, he spent many years stretching himself seven days a week between the radio booth and nightclubs and festivals where he made a real go at his other passion - DJing. Now almost ten years into his career and having managed to strike the perfect balance between performing at venues and hosting shows on Spin, here’s what it’s like to be Marty Guilfoyle.

    What It's Like... to be Alan Lazaros

    On today’s episode, I’m chatting to a peak performance coach and business consultant. Growing up in Massachusetts, this week’s guest is definitely no stranger to ambition. Setting goals around making it in corporate America from a young age, it wasn’t until he experienced a life altering accident that he realised his so called six figure success was making him miserable. Surviving the near fatal car crash was just the beginning of the story for the inspiring coach as he took the terrible trauma as an opportunity to finally live the life he had always wanted deep down. Spreading his message through coaching, speaking and his podcast that he hosts with friend, Kevin, the Hyper Conscious Podcast, here’s what it’s like to be Alan Lazaros.

    What It's Like... to be Conor Leen

    On today’s episode, I’m chatting to founder and CEO of Stampify, a social enterprise that allows users to fight world hunger by completing a loyalty card with stamps from partner businesses. Cycling home from work one day, this week’s young entrepreneur stumbled across a full loyalty card he had that resulted in a free burrito. Noticing a homeless man sitting outside the shop, it wasn’t until he was in the comfort of his home that evening enjoying the free food he could’ve easily paid for, that he had a eureka moment. Gathering together a group of college friends, he set to work on creating a non profit organisation set to change the face of our world hunger epidemic. Navigating pivotal roadblocks along the way, sharing thoughts on today’s pressures to achieve success at a young age and most importantly how he did it - here’s what it’s like to be Conor Leen.

    What It's Like... to be Aoife McNamara

    On today’s episode, I’m chatting to fashion designer and founder of AOIFE IRELAND. Noticing her love for fashion from a young age, this week’s guest wasted no time in pursuing her dream and enrolled in a university course to study fashion design the minute she left secondary school. Finding herself interning in New York for the one and only, Marc Jacobs, it was evident the up and coming designer had a bright future ahead and continued to take things further by moving to Paris following graduation, to fully immerse herself in the industry. Returning home to Ireland from the French capital, she began gifting pieces of her collection to Instagram influencers and from there, things started to take off. Focusing on using only sustainable Irish materials, her designs landed her on the runway of Paris Fashion Week last year, showcasing her Autumn Winter collection. Sharing insights into the new role of social media in the growth of the fashion industry, what it’s really like working as a designer in Ireland and how she burst onto the scene, here’s what it’s like to be Aoife McNamara.
