DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #178 Todd Cook (‘The Silent Boat’ EP Launch)

Rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, evading crocs, playing footy & music in the Northern Territory, the Tiwi Islands and getting into the thick of Australian indigenous culture. All this & more is just some of what’s in store this week on Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet!

Australian singer/songwriter Todd Cook joins me live from Adelaide on tour to talk about the launch of ‘The Silent Boat’ EP.

Celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first Australian Cricket team’s tour to England in 1868, ‘The Silent Boat’ tells the relatively untold part of Australian history.

The team, predominately made up of indigenous players from Western Victoria, displayed outstanding sportsmanship and skill, and their story is a beacon of hope in a dark page of Australian folklore.

Todd Cook’s vocals are Gomez x David Gray amplified, he wrote his wedding vows as a song, describes a “pinch me” moment whilst on tour in Belfast and we even get the ‘Silent Boat single a spin.

Amazing podcast chats! Let’s get into it!

Wicked podcast chats with American stand-up comedian & host of the ‘Road Stories’ podcast Murray Valeriano!

Live from Los Angeles, I am proud to call this son of a preacher man from Memphis (Tennessee), via New Jersey, my friend and on today’s show we chat about landing on an aircraft carrier in the Middle East, performing for American troops at a non-existent military base in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa and ‘Comedians on Safari’ where Californian comedians book stand-up comedy tours around surfing safaris,

We also discuss Murray Valeriano’s latest hour-long show on religion, which is bound to raise a few eyebrows in the USA where religious belief still hold so much sway and power, being inspired and motivated by his Academy Award nominated wife Mary Zophres, who is one of the best costume designers in Hollywood, on movies such as La La Land, True Grit and Catch Me If You Can and much, more more.

Lifestyle x Work – Choose Your Own Adventure!

Posted on Updated on

Work. Save. Work. Save. Reward. Work. Save.

This is the modern, western formula that I’m sure most of us have grown up with and in the past it certainly worked. But let’s face it: 2018 is an expensive world, mindsets and attitudes towards work are changing and it’s becoming more and more difficult not to compare yourself to every colleague, friend or Insta-famous model who are all living their best life. The modern world, particularly Generations Y, Z and beyond and facing enormous economic pressure and immense spiritual discord.

Do you have to put up with one to forgo the other?



On one hand we’re faced with a property market that’s nearly impossible to break into, working longer hours to combat wage stagnation with the knowledge that without a certain level of capital it’s going to be very difficult to follow our bliss.

On the other hand, what about our bliss? The old-school societal expectation of working in a well-paid, 40+ hour, high-stress job REGARDLESS of whether or not it’s an industry you actually enjoy is not at all a thrilling concept and unfortunately those who undertake such a mission are buckling and buckling hard. Gone are the days where one wants to work hard for their whole life in order to retire at 60, take a well-earned break and finally regain a sense of freedom.

The reality is we want to work hard at a job that is rewarding, fulfilling and abundant, we want the freedom to change careers based on our interests without judgement AND we want to experience life’s beauty and all it has to offer, preferably before we’re 60 years-old.

We want want it all and we want it now. So how do we get it?


Let me give you this frame of reference. Business analysts and health professionals from around the world mostly agree that an individual is likely to change careers between 3-7 times in their lifetime. So with this knowledge why are people more than ever dreading Monday? Why is there a stubborn residue of old, accepted social norms in regards to ‘sticking it out’ in a career you hate in favour of financial freedom? Why aren’t we giving ourselves the space to fail forward and forge multiple careers based on a commitment to Life-Work Balance?


In this week’s episode I take you through my unexpected career path that I forged solely through a commitment to choosing employment based on my dream lifestyle. From hospitality to university, from promotional work to aviation I share with you what I’ve learned from each profession and how I built upon it moving forward. If you told me 20 years ago about my career path of course, I would have laughed at you. Contrary to what you’re told in high school, I’ve learned that there is no one way to achieve financial and spiritual success. If you follow your bliss, listen to your gut and fail forward you’ll open yourself up to a life you never dreamed of.

 


Go on then. Choose your own adventure!

Show Notes:

1. Episode #76 with Australian actor Daniel MacPherson
2. Episode #169 Life Work Balance with @hotndelicious – Solocast
3. “Narcissistic Leaders: The Incredible Pros, the Inevitable Cons” – Harvard Business Review article by Michael Maccoby.
