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”.

Despite concern and greater awareness about domestic violence, it’s still happening, and with only 16% of women who experience violence contacting an agency such as a shelter, crisis centre or hotline, counsellor or women’s centre for help, we may never really know the how wide spread the issue is.
In this extraordinary episode I speak with Anita Bentata, an escapee of domestic violence. Anita’s story has been documented in her book “The Wolf in a Suit”.
During this episode Anita shares incredible insights from the children’s fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood” and it’s easy to see the parallels of the fairy tale with her own journey, Anita is Little Red Riding Hood, standing at the edge of the woods, being caught by The Wolf (only he’s wearing a suit), and finally escaping with her two little girls.
This episode is one of hope, courage and full of insights as Anita shares how we can all access far more than we know, and how when faced with mixed messages from a partner we end up confused, leading to inaction, possibly the reason why some women stay much longer than they should. Anita has turned her experiences into a mission to help women, she went on to study Human Behavior and became a psychotherapist and counsellor. Anita now helps women to develop their emotional muscle to speak about the unknown and the uncomfortable, she is well versed in all the unspoken myths about love, stress and relationships.

Are you still looking for or wondering what your purpose in life is? How would you like to simply bump into it? Well Guy shares how you can do that, because it’s exactly what happened to him.
Guy is a regular guy, doing extraordinary things! From humble beginnings in Wales the former founder of 180 Nutrition shares how he went from plumber, to stock trader to wellness authority to Treasure Hunter and Map maker… but he doesn’t hunt the treasures most of us seek in the external world, and he doesn’t make maps with burnt edges either.
He hunts for treasure far more valuable than diamonds, silver and gold, and I can guarantee you that once you hear his story and wisdom, you will want to know more about his map making!
At the beginning of 2018, Guy stepped down from his 180 Nutrition role to focus full time on his new project “Let It In’, helping people transform their lives using meditation and the language of neuroscience and wow, do we go down some amazing rabbit holes in this episode!
Guy talks about how he was forced to go back to a beginner’s mind, and in doing so, opened himself up to a new world of information and possibility, but more importantly, as old beliefs began to be dismantled and fall away, he had no option than to ask himself “Where else have I been wrong?” He share’s one of the most terrifying, yet liberating things he has done and how he eventually found a way to align his head and his heart to his new-found purpose. I encourage you to take not of his final piece of advice… if you do this one thing… your life really will be incredible!
