Featuring: Chris Koch
Imagine planning out your day, fully expecting to be home for dinner only to end up in a jail cell with a stranger. Having found yourself convicted of a crime.
My guest on this episode doesn’t have to imagine that situation, as it’s exactly what happened to him. Chris was used to the high life, rubbing shoulders with US presidents, CIA operatives and the wealthy. He earned large sums of money doing what came naturally to him as one of Australia’s top 5 speakers. His success as a professional speaker allowed him to live the high life, fancy restaurants, beautiful homes, first class travel and accommodation wherever he went. But that all changed in June 2010.
During this episode I chat with Chris about his experience in prison, he shares incredible insights on how you can build resilience in your own life along with ideas on how to build trusting relationships. We also discuss the “disease of greed” that inflicted him and continues to plague society as people continue risk everything in the search for unimaginable riches. Chris shares how he survived for seven and a half years in several high security prisons by using the same motivational skills and relationship building capabilities that had placed him at the highest level in the professional speaking industry. Chris’s encounters in prison are both inspirational and saddening yet you will notice how he was always able to look on the optimistic side of the challenges that arose, taking the “hit” as a “gift”.

Featuring: Samara & Reem Borrows.
I can’t think of a better way to acknowledge the United Nations International Day of the Girl than introducing you to Samara, a delightful future leader who shares her wisdom on how to turn terror into excitement, encouraging us to not settle for average, but settle instead for the impossible.
Join me as I tumble down the rabbit hole with my youngest guest so far Samara Borrows. This interview is so appealing to young and old, grab your family and press play!
Samara and I chat about how she prepared to speak in public and how her speech “Reach for the Stars” encourages us all to check whether we have the right mindset to reach our dreams. Samara has her eyes set on an inspiring goal to become a mini vini at school to help make a difference for people in need. She will be running for school captain at the end of this year and if elected she wants to ensure all kids have a voice at school.
I also chat with Samara’s mum, Reem Borrows, and it soon becomes evident that the apple hasn’t fallen far from the tree. Reem believes that, regardless of your past or present circumstances, each one of us has unlimited potential with the opportunity to elevate the quality of our life and achieve all that we desire.
