    #14. Didi Mathibe - Life in Chapters

    One of my longest and deepest relationships through friendship is put on a beautiful display through Episode 14's conversation with Didi Mathibe (@didi_mathibe). 

    The days leading up to our conversation were weird. There's no other way to put it. Protests around the globe had broken out around "Justice for George Floyd". The Black Lives Matter movement had been amplified, debated, and vivisected from every angle on and offline. A giant explosion had killed 135 people and injured over 5000 from a warehouse in Beruit. The threat of the Coronavirus was still very, very much upon us, and all during the same time, I was trying to make sense of what "this all means" in my own little world. 

    Then, my intention to invite Didi to the show revealed itself amidst the global turmoil. Why now? Why this way and through this platform? These were two questions she had actually asked me during our intro call prior to recording and it forced me to think long and hard about that word - "intention." 

    At the time of her asking, I had already begun my own journey of unlearning, listening, and re-visiting the heart-work to try and make sense of HOW I actually understood my own privilege; as well as what healing, freedom, and justice for Black people across the globe looked like today. Like many of you, I was having those uncomfortable conversations with myself and trying my utmost best to soak in any and all information from those around me. When Didi had then asked me "Why now?" and "Why this way and through this platform?", insecurities of my own had revered it's ugly head as it dawned that perhaps I was seeking comfortability by talking to a Black womxn whom I know and trust to "stumble" my way through my own vulnerabilities, through a means that I was comfortable with [conversation], without the "risk" of being scrutinized for being ignorant. 

    Didi could see right through me. I hated it. I loved it. 

    This empathetic nomad from South Africa who's just trying to find a spot in the world, or in herself, that feels like home is someone I heartfeltly consider one of the most beautiful souls the world has to boast. She was able to hold a space for our conversation to be had in the most authentic way I could've ever imagined by allowing me into her world in a way that I am extremely grateful for. Through a recording with her from across the world (she's currently in Bolivia) Didi portrayed compassion, empathy, love, kindness, and a hearty laugh as we went about her life's chapters.

    #13. Brett Sparg - Life and Movement

    #13. Brett Sparg - Life and Movement

    Brett Sparg (@spargy15) - A good friend, mentor, and Greek-God-like human being introduces you to Episode 13!

    Admittedly, Spargs had been on my radar for some time before I had invited him to be apart of the show. We all have people in life whom we're watching (as creepy as that sounds!). These same people, should you connect with their personal philosophy, are the influencers we're learning and taking inspiration into our lives from through their zest for life. Personally, it was a no-brainer as over the last few months it became so apparent that it was now time to invite one of my "distant" role models to have a conversation with. 

    For those who don't know any of Brett's story; a born-and-bred Cape Tonian with a deep loving for the city and the surrounding ocean he grew up in. Just by watching his online fitness classes with the Ignite Fitness crew or a casual social media stalk, you may or may not be intimidated by this +40-year-old rugged stud and the way he moves in space and fitness #lifegoals. However, Spargs is a gentle giant with zero chip on his shoulder who radiates humility and to be honest - inspiration. 

    Our conversation ebbed and flowed between early childhood to adulthood victories in sports and the experiences which shaped his worldview on life as a result of it. I'll let you be the judge in deciding whether the under-6 50m sprint race had more of an effect on Spargy's life than "finding surfing" or playing 80 caps for the Saracens First Rugby team. As exceptionally interesting as what this was to talk about, there was a moment early on in our conversation which made me feel as if I was literally walking in the shoes of this brilliant man. 

    For the first time in a long while, I found that I was able to connect with another man almost twice my senior who could relate to ME and understand my journey as if it were me looking back in time. There's a beauty to this experience which even now, I struggle to really interpret. Spargs allowed himself to be vulnerable about his past and present during our conversation, which gave me the opportunity to truly connect with both. 

    Yes, his fitness, sporting & business accolades are something to admire. However, his relationship with life, people, and way of being is one that inspires. Enjoy!

    #12. Ross Symons - White on Rice Origami

    #12. Ross Symons - White on Rice Origami

    Ross Symons (@white_onrice), a Cape Tonian Origami artist, and I bring you Episode 12 on the Outcome. Podcast

    You know, more often I find myself asking the question "what is something I could do today which I haven't done before?", fascinated (or obsessed) by the idea of starting something new and seeing it through. There's a sense of ownership which my routine monkey-mind loves and a self-imposed challenge which all of a sudden I feel obligated to complete as to simply say "I've done it". 

    When Ross had mentioned working his 9-5 job as a web developer and over time, realising that being employed by someone else was never going to make him happy, his pursuit of creative entrepreneurship had me intrigued. This and following his own self-imposed 365-day challenge in 2014 had already hit two of my favourite buzz phrases - "Experiential Learning & Mastery" AND "It's Not Black and White."

    From a young age, Ross had always started some form of a side project. One of these which stuck came out of his enjoyment of practicing the traditional Japanese art of paper folding [Origami]. In retrospection with a Wayne Dyer video on a re-run, Ross had once again decided to apply his mind and focus to his newly-discovered art form, and thus White on Rice was born. Committing himself to create and post one Origami creature a day, Ross very quickly grew his Instagram following from 120 to 100,000 followers in just 18 months and embarked on his newfound journey into entrepreneurship. 

    Of course, this is the sort of content I crave as Ross and I dove a little deeper into what his journey up to now has been like. Meditation, creativity, vulnerability, and mindset factors are a few of the topics we explore and I absolutely loved it!

    He now creates origami installations for some of the world's biggest brands, performs exhibitions that would blow you away, taught himself origami stop-frame animations, and shares this content for brands and people around the world. As an ex-radio host, Ross is no fo to public speaking gigs where he shares his story about how he made the shift from 9-5 web developer to an Instagrammer and full-time artist.

    Enjoy!

    #11. Tatiana Sharpe - The Lonely Tiger & Global Impact Network

    #11. Tatiana Sharpe - The Lonely Tiger & Global Impact Network

    Tatiana Sharpe (@tatianasharpe) - Zimbabwe's youngest author, Co-Founder and CEO, Business owner, team member of Global Council for the NGO World Merit, United Nations (UN) Speaker and an incredible philanthropist through numerous volunteer programmes, this episode recording promises to have you enthralled from start to finish. 

    Whilst Tatiana is all of these things mentioned above, this conversation was so beautifully recorded as its content contains her experiences and stories which have helped shape her into the woman she is today. 

    Upon meeting her she had me engrossed in the bits and pieces of life that have helped to mold not only her worldview, but the worldview of the people she interacts with daily. My perception initially, was to unpack more of these stories around her successes. "What is it like still today being recognised as Zimbabwe's youngest author? Tell me more about founding your current business - Global Impact Network - from the knowledge that the mammoth multimedia messaging app Snapchat was born from the same university course at Stanford. The United Nations - you spoke to a room full of Trustees in 2016 - what was that like?" Instead, our conversation went along a different path. 

    Yes, Tatiana's CV boasts a very impressive journey from the time most of us are pretty much learning to read. However, double-clicking to have a look beneath the surface of her accomplishments you will find one of the world's brightest and honest gems. Our conversation was instead geared towards taking a sneak peak at that. 

    As a solemn humanitarian herself, and plunging both feet with me into a topic requiring immense personal vulnerability, Tatiana allowed us the incredible opportunity to get to know her from the inside out. One which written words cannot do justice and which the recording I hope does. 

    Without a doubt, you'll hear from her again. 

    Enjoy!

    #10. Trent Pike - Mielie Mailer

    Trent Pike (@trentcpike) - An exceptionally humble business man, travel enthusiast, and fellow inner-peace seeker joins me online for Episode 10. 

    With an exceptional story highlighting some of Trent's more recent life challenges and successes, Trent and I took a trip down memory lane to unpack much of where his current mental framework around past and present entrepreneurial successes has given him the experience and skillset to guide sustainable and consciously-minded business development.

    Don't let Trent's tranquil demeanour fool you though. This man possesses strong liberal beliefs in ethics and environmentalism encompassing a triple-bottom-line approach to value creation. Three specific topics we dive a little deeper into throughout our chat. From dropping out of university, creating an exceptionally successful business venture from R5,000 in hand, being threatened by Instagram for perceived trademark violation, a beautiful "awakening" after reading "The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying", to visiting over 20 National Parks whilst living out of a travel van in the U.S for 3 months, Trent and I went on an adventure through time.

    As Co-Founder of Mielie Mailer, his more recent business venture, Trent and his team are looking to bring sustainable packaging solutions to businesses throughout South Africa. What do they offer? A 100% compostable plastic-alternative to traditional delivery sleeves fly-bags, that could remove up to 50 million single-use plastic bags every year from circulation.

    He and his team are thought-leaders in sustainability, carbon sequestration and plastic-replacements, where their recent contribution to the South African Initiative to End Plastic Waste has cemented this position. With the belief that the best way to save nature is with more nature, here is another conversation where I was transfixed!

    #9. Mark Fawzy - BoxChamp

    Episode 9 on the @outcomepodcast features the Founder and CEO of BoxChamp, Co-Founder of Flexi (Pty) Ltd - Mark Fawzy. 

    As so aptly described in a write up of Mark in 2017, it is very difficult to picture the man doing anything mundane or sub-ordinary once you get a sneak peak into the mind behind the name. I've known Mark for quite a few years now and when the opportunity presented itself to find out a little more about his journey through sports, entrepreneurship and ultimately his perspective on life I jumped at the chance!

    There's something quite special which develops when two friends sit down to have an "unusual" chat, that taps into the unfamiliar within a friendship. Despite the foundation of our friendship being formed some time ago, this conversation with Mark allowed me to  catch a glimpse of that spark he brings to everything he commits to doing in his day-to-day. And, one which I know that you as the listener will relate to and hopefully appreciate the way I did. 

    Mark and his team at BoxChamp have developed and presented the fitness industry around the world, with an all-in-one business management solution for fitness facilities. Their influence across the country has become so successful that in just a few years they are now challenging some of the giant household names globally, bringing with them an excellent customer service support team, stellar onboarding experiences for coaches and managers alike, agile work methodologies and a sleek, easy to use interface for the facility athletes and members.

    Our conversation shifted from Mark nearing burnout during his first few years in running his business to being constantly on the lookout for balance in work and play. Family time, running, yoga, CrossFit, business education, podcasting - we covered it all. 

    I hope that you enjoy!

Mindset is key

Great guy with a great mind! Always breaking things down to its core, for self-betterment. His optimism and dedication will definitely make this podcast worthwhile

Barrel Hunterz Crew ,

Average, you’re losing my attention...

Listened to a few talks, not very practical focused as stated in the intro podcast. I want to know why people’s businesses work, how they operate, struggles, milestones, breakthroughs, marketing strategies, business strategy, sales, etc. give me value and a reason to listen. Give me value I don’t expect...

27Br ,

The pursuit of happiness.

Bringing his great presence and lovely voice to the listening ears.
I’m sure whatever He has to say each week will both inspire and challenge us to pursue our very best selves!
