Entrepreneurship podcast: Choose Day x hotndelicious x Secret Men’s Business on Bondi Radio

Have you ever desired a life of more financial freedom, pursuing a life work balance that you believe you can have and being the best person you could be for yourself and the people around you?

WICKED Entrepreneurship & Leadership Choose Day radio show recorded LIVE yesterday at The Bucketlist Bondi on Bondi Radio with my home-boys Stacy Henderson (POVAR) and Seth Lawrence (Secret Men’s Business) on Bondi Radio, whilst watching the blue green waves roll in at Bondi Beach. And I loved it so much that we decided to release it as a podcast!

The conversation flows and as always we go on a number of tangents:

  • Early in the show Stacy and I talk openly about how we’re both looking to re-position ourselves professionally, striving for more financial freedom in life, creating a career for yourself based on what you love, what you’re good at and what you want out of life.
  • Seth Lawrence speaks in depth about Men’s Mental Health and his current path of “helping a lot of men (and women) in our communities understand and feel their emotions, move through and release them rather than suppression” which in his belief leads to depression, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, etc. His training has helped him to let go of a lot of negative thoughts, beliefs and patterns that no longer serve him and it has allowed Seth to establish a deeper connection with himself and others. 
  • I face a few demons of my own on the Choose Day show and share with the boys the steps I took from having no confidence as a kid to being someone that I’m proud of and I love.
  • Spark Festival – ‘Social Media for Business – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’.
  • We share a few top tips for anyone craving to pursue a new career that they’re passionate about.
  • Yoga, meditation and we of course wax lyrical about life in Bondi Beach.

Super chats and I hope that this radio show podcast puts a smile on your face and makes your heart soar as much as it does mine!

Young Henrys and Afends launch new HEMP IPA beer.

Posted on

Young Henrys and Afends launch new HEMP IPA beer.

Last night Young Henrys and Afends tapped the 1st keg of their ground-breaking, brand new HEMP IPA at Young Henrys brewery HQ in Newtown.

A year and a half in the making (who knew hemp laws Down Under would be so strict! 😁) , this delicious little number is now one of my favourite new beers. Any concerns that I had of the hemp overpowering this India Pale Ale were immediately washed away as the golden nectar flowed down my throat. The Young Henrys x Afends HEMP IPA is big, bold and beautifully balanced with just enough hop and a delicious blend of citrus, tropical and stone fruits. We’ve got a new daddy now! 🍻🍁✨

I was also chatting with Young Henrys founders Oscar McMahon and Richard Adamson last night about how happy it made me to be back amongst the Young Henrys crew. It’s been while! If you’ve ever wanted to learn about building a culture for your business, then YH is a wonderful example. I’m definitely keen to record a podcast with Oscar about it sometime, as last night’s event just felt like family!

So if you’re after a new brew then look no further. Wrap your lips around this!

Posted on

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #197 David Anderson – Nine Fingers Brew cofounder & head brewer.

Nine Fingers Brew is one of Sydney’s exciting new Inner West craft beer breweries and cofounder & head brewer, Dave Anderson is a super inspiring guy!

A home-brew fanatic from a young age, after losing his finger in an circular saw accident on a construction work-site Dave was determined to take life by the horns, created his own construction business and after winning multiple awards for his home-brews, turned his hand to bring his brewery dreams to life!

Determined and centred, this wonderful chat with Dave Anderson illustrates that we can and should have multiple careers across this lifetime of ours, how we can be so much more than one dream and learning how to pivot when things don’t quite go the way we expected.

We chat beer, we drink beer, talk about Sydney Beer Week, the upcoming Sydney launch of their latest beer Waltzing Ma Pilsner & much, much more!

Let’s get into it!

Ash Hazell – Brews, Biochemistry & Head of Brewing at Colonial Brewing Co.

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!

The 5 must-haves for Aussies when applying for a US Visa – A podcast with Andrea Szew.

Ever wanted to work in the USA like me? 

Last year I was in Los Angeles and the USA under the ESTA Visa Waiver Program for just under 3 months to explore what Los Angeles was like as a place to be based for work – to see if there was another side to the City of Angels away from the plastic fantastic and then based on these experiences, decide if I wished to pursue the O1 Visa as an option to work in the USA (also known as the O1 Alien of Extraordinary Ability Visa – yes, that’s what it’s called).  

Now any Australian who has spent time in Los Angeles with a Green Card, E3 or O1 Visa will tell you that they have the best US Immigration Lawyer in the USA ever! And chances are that they might, but it’s not all cut & dried and there are some key things that you need to know before you go splash the cash on securing a lawyer in the hopes of chasing the American dream.

This week on Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! I chat with Los Angeles-based US International Business and Immigration lawyer, Andrea Szew, about:

  • The 5 Must-Haves When Applying for a US Visa.
  • How Trump’s administration is affecting foreign nationals’ ability to work in the US 1 year on since taking office and what you as an applicant needs to take into consideration.
  • Andrea Szew’s life growing up in California, her time at UCLA and what inspired her to become a lawyer specializing in Immigration Law.
  • Some of the iconic clients Andrea’s worked with including Hootsuite CEO, Ryan Holmes, Australias Thunder from Down Under in Las Vegas and much much more.

For context, Andrea and I met through the Aussies in LA Australians in LA Facebook Pages, which is a wonderful community of Aussies and a super important resource for any Australian based in or seeking to be approved for a USA visa to work in Los Angeles.

And the good news is that there is SO much more to L.A. than the glitter, gloss and your name up in lights; countless hiking trails in the greater Los Angeles area, live comedy every night of the week, amazing Mexican food, a live music scene that makes your mouth water and I fell in love with the Sports Bar culture too. I’ve found the American people as a whole, from my previous holidays there and on this trip, to be so warm and welcoming, polite and giving. Plus if you need it, there’s this a super supportive community of expat Australians in both Los Angeles and New York City (should you need it) and a whole new country to explore. Loves it!

So if you an Australian businessman/women seeking to work in the USA or you have a friend who is… if you are award-winning digital media professional, an actor, musician, producer or entertainer who believes you have done the hard yards and have what it takes to make it in the USA, then this is the podcast for you!
