Ep. 20 Interview with Heather Joy Bassett, Author, Inspirational Speaker & Ex-World Champion

Heather Joy Bassett

For episode 20 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat with Heather Joy Bassett. Heather is an Author, Inspirational Speaker, Mentor & Ex-World Champion, an Entrepreneur and all round interesting person. 
Heather and I met on a workshop called “The Consciousness of Money” held on The Sunshine Coast in Queensland. We shared a room and as I got to know Heather and listened to her stories, I found her quite fascinating and inspirational. Heather shares her journey through the highs and lows of competing in a team that made it to the world finals. She ran her own podiatry practice for 35 years and 8 months before selling and starting a new phase in her journey of self discovery. Heather started doing workshops in personal development, sexuality and spirituality from a place of lack in herself, believing that she was broken and needed to be fixed. Over time, Heather has learned that she is perfectly perfect and is now sharing her story with others through her first book “A Cosmically Juicy Life” that she published when she was 59.

For episode 19 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat with Amanda Fullam.  Amanda came to chat about life and following her dreams by experiencing a creative rebirth and starting her instagram profile – @theprettinessproject, her fledgling business that she want to move from doing interior design to impact on more peoples lives. 
Amanda and I met doing a personal development workshop and after chatting to her at the workshop I really wanted to chat to her on this podcast as she told me how she started her instagram profile @theprettinessproject from reconnecting with her feminine side and her creativity to experience a creative rebirth. The result was Amanda’s discovery of a community of people who loved lettering in May, she started researching how to do wedding and event signage and lettering art and has grown her online following from 800 people to 2,000 in 1 month by giving away hints and tutorials on Instagram for free. 

Ep. 18 Three Women on an Extended Water Fast

Water fast

For episode 18 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat about the extended water fast that I did with 2 friends. I have compiled a series of video clips of the 2 weeks where we went for a float session, got a Zen Thai Shiatsu massage, went out on the town with friends, worked and generally did nearly everything I would normally do over a 2 week period, just without food. The general reaction Jo, Kelly and I got when we talked about our extended water fast was one of incredulity and disbelief.  Jo completed a 21 day water fast and Kelly and I did 14 days. We are still alive, no one fainted, we all worked and socialised during our fast. We all lost quite a bit of toxic fat from our bodies (I think we were all around 9kg’s) but it wasn’t for the weight loss that we did this.

Ep. 17 Interview with Sarah McCrum: Co-founder of Love To, Chinese Energy coach and Entrepreneur Coach

Sarah McCrum

For episode 17 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat with Sarah McCrum: Co-founder of Love To, Chinese Energy coach and Entrepreneur/Game Changer Coach.
Sarah McCrum has had a wide and varied background that has taken her around the world and landed her on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  Many years ago, Sarah started as a Teacher but didn’t fit so ended up at the BBC specialised in interviewing children for the BBC and their questions really instigated her quest for answers to why we are here in this life.  Her quest took her on a journey where she studied energy under 2 Chinese masters for 22 years.  These studies led her from New Zealand to Queensland.  She is the a co-founder of Love To, runs her own Entrepreneur coaching business with unique programs such as Energy activations, Game Changers and Consciousness of Money.  She is also the author of the book Love Money, Money Loves You.

Ep. 16 Nutritional Psychology: A New Realm of Research

Nutritional Psychology

For episode 16 of “Let’s Talk About..” I chat about Nutritional Psychology and the link between physical and mental health.
I want to delve into something close and personal to my heart and that is the research around nutritional psychology. My older sister experienced a psychotic episode a few years ago resulting in her being diagnosed with psychosis, depression and PTSD. She was quite heavily medicated to start with but over the last 4 years she has been working on getting well and is now on the lowest dose possible of anti-psychosis medication possible.  Angie (my sister) has just written a book about her experience and her journey to recovery – (download it here). Angie talks a bit in the book about my role in her road to recovery.

Thai Chicken Sausage Rolls Recipe

I absolutely love making this Guacamole Recipe! Especially when we have friends coming around, it’s always a hit. It can be made ahead of time and is still good after a couple of days in the fridge (not that it will last that long).  It’s also a great side to add to a big hearty bowl of Mexican chilli beans or to put with your taco’s or nacho’s.

Ep. 14 Interview with Mikhailla from Wholeheartedly

Mikhailla - Wholeheartedly

For episode 14 of “Let’s Talk About..” I have a chat with Mikhailla from Wholeheartedly. Mikhailla is a twenty four year old, a second time business owner, a bachelor of business marketing graduate and mum of two with one in heaven and one on earth. Mikhailla has spent a lot of my free time writing from the pain of her loss, her current reality; and sharing a wholehearted perspective on how easy it is to eat good food!

Aerated Brewed Worm Tea Recipe

One of the things that I really care about is food waste and the effect that food waste has on the environment. That is one of the reasons why I keep a worm farm at home. It is somewhere for me to use up some of the juice pulp waste plus the worms produce castings (worm poo) that is literally liquid gold organic fertiliser.  One way to use worm juice is to water the worms in the farm and then just collect the water that drains out. This worm juice is normally pretty concentrated so needs to be watered down before pouring on your garden plants or you can make a special aerated brew that is super abundant in microbes that really feed and condition your soil.
