Craft Beer podcast: Ash Hazell – Brews, Biochemistry & Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #180 Ash Hazell (Head of Brewing – Colonial Brewing Co)

Meet Ash Hazell! This rad dude, close friend of mine and wonderful soul is the Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co!

Yep, Ash Hazell oversees brewing at both Colonial Brewing Co breweries in Port Melbourne on the east coast of Australia and Margaret River in the west.

2 weeks back I jetted down to Melbourne-town for my yearly MRI brain scan and surgeon’s appointment, so last minute I dropped Ash a line and locked in an afternoon of drinking beers, brewery tour and podcasting with this legend!

Like many of the world’s best brewers, Ash fell in love with home-brewing beer from his very first taste of a mate’s home-brew at 16. Fiercely determined to then make this thing his life, completing chemistry degree with units of biochemistry and microbiology, Ash Hazell began his journey into professional brewing at one of Australia’s first craft beer breweries, Little Creatures Brewing Co, then founded Barrow Boys Brewing and was eventually head-hunted to take the reins at Colonial Brewing Co.

We cover off on Ash Hazell’s earliest ever beer memory, what inspired him to become a brewer in the first place, the Colonial Brewing Co Crosby Stills & Mash Gin Infused IIPA, South West Sour and their latest top secret brew, the delectable chocolate, honey and rum infused Violent Rumble.

And then of course, we had a few more beers… 😁🍻✨

Yum, Yum, Yum… Super, super podcast chats… Let’s get into it!

Ambition. Ask Yourself The BIG Questions to Drive Success!

Every week I speak with entrepreneurs, tech founders, actors, musicians, comedians and the most wonderful leaders across a range of industries and am constantly inspired by their ability to pursue their dreams with unwavering tenacity!

In this week’s episode of the Hot & Delicious Rocks The Planet! weekly entrepreneurship podcast, I answer those very same questions that I ask of these awe-inspiring individuals and invite you all to ponder them for your own life also, in the hope that you will take stock and feel inspired to chase your own pursuits.

In this ever-evolving technological age, many of you are working longer hours, the cost of living is more expensive and we’re all bombarded by the social construct of wanting bigger, faster, longer and better.



Better?
The human need to strive to be better isn’t a bad thing. Without it the very nature of science, technology, innovation and creativity would be nowhere near as exciting as it is today. The massive strides forward in nearly every discipline surely has come from the human desire to be better.

But who’s version of ‘Better’ are you striving for? 

Really stop and think about that. As wondrous as the forward motion in innovation and technology are, there is of course always a downside. What with the fast-paced world that is 2018, is it any wonder that most of us don’t stop and consider what OUR version of ‘better’ is?

Not your parents’ version.
Not reality television’s version.
Not the Instagram version of yourself.
Not Hollywood’s version.

YOUR version. Your ‘why’. Your values. Your dreams. Yours.

Let’s get into the show!

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!

Life Work Balance with @hotndelicious – My Tips & Tricks.

Posted on Updated on

Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! – Life Work Balance

If you pick up the arts and entertainment section of any newspaper you’re likely to see in the best seller list AT LEAST one book on success, achieving work-life balance and consciously owning your time. Whether it’s new titles like “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson or “The 4 Hour Workweek” by Timothy Ferris, it seems that people more than ever are openly on the quest to achieve ‘work-life balance’.

But is it even possible to achieve? What with the mountain of books, podcasts, classes and Netflix specials on ‘work-life balance’ it can sometimes feel like an elusive concept made only for bloggers, entrepreneurs and coaches who coach people on creating work-life balance. Needless to say, I understand how it can seem elusive particularly if your career doesn’t fit any of these moulds.

But what if we changed the angle?

On today’s podcast I discuss my philosophy of Life Work Balance and how it’s possible to be working full-time and creating your own projects while also ensuring you make time for you. I take you back to where I first implemented this concept and let you in on some of my tips, tricks and how-to’s to integrate Life Work Balance into your schedule right now.
