The life lessons & learnings of 3 x brain tumours by Dan Wilkinson.

Imagine being 25 years of age, looking at yourself in the mirror, not looking any different, not feeling any different, but you’ve just found out that you have brain tumours and you’re not sure if you’re going to be alive in 6 months.

Podcast Feature: My journey of a life and lessons having lived through 3 brain tumour operations, going completely deaf on one side, facial paralysis and learning how to walk again.

As you may have gathered, this week’s show is not your standard Hot & Delicious podcast episode and yes happily, 3 brain tumour operations and 18 years later I am still alive and well. This is not a “poor me” podcast and anyone who knows me knows how positive I am. This is for many of my friends who have been asking me about the story after my latest check-up and I’ve created it also in the hope that I can provide individuals going through their own ordeal, and their families, with a little shared experience that they might be able to use to help them their own journeys.

Some of you long-time listeners will know that I recorded some similar subject matter in 2016, however I’m a different person these days, I realised that I don’t think that I ever published a blog article about it and these kind of stories, in my eyes at least, are timeless and best shared, lest my own journey can be of benefit to someone else. It would quite honestly make my day and year if it could.

And as a little bonus at the end of this week’s episode, I’ll also share a few thoughts on pursuing your dreams from my perspective, shifting from full-time corporate work to self-employed retainer clients, as well as the need for techniques if you are self-employed and work from home.

Let’s get into the show!

‘Becoming Colleen – Finding The Shoe That Fits’ podcast with Ian Thomson.

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #206 Becoming Colleen – Finding The Shoe That Fits (Writer, Director & Producer Ian Thomson).

‘Becoming Colleen: Finding the Shoe that Fits’ is a documentary about an 85 year old transgender woman, transitioning from male to female in the coastal community of Coffs Harbour on the NSW mid-north coast. Having lived most of her life as Colin – a husband, father, policeman, film-projectionist and self-declared shoe fetishist, Colleen has had to negotiate her gender transition later in life.

More than a documentary about the transitioning of an elderly transgender woman: this is a story of Col and her wife Heather: two people whose love transcended their gender roles; a small community that comes together to support a woman in pursuit of her greatest dream; and how finding exactly the right pair of shoes can be a perfect fit.

On today’s show, my close friend Craig Mack and I interview writer, producer & director, Ian Thomson, who with the support of Queer Screen, Acon, STC and Documentary Australia Foundation, has pulled together this most beautiful and evocative journey that touches on so many important social issues of our time.

Not only does it shine a light on the world and life of a transgender lady growing up in rural Australia and the challenges that she faces along the way, this is story of inclusiveness, being true to yourself, spending time with and cherishing the elderly, evolving interpersonal relationships with friends, family and strangers, demonstrating the need for understanding, striving to learn from and showing empathy for people in the world around us, especially if they view the world a little bit differently to or approach life from a slightly different perspective to us.

It makes me proud to share this work of art and I hope you that enjoy this story as much as I do!

The ‘Becoming Colleen’ Sydney premiere on Sunday 24th February thanks to Queer Screen as part of the Mardi Gras Film Festival.

200th Podcast Episode!!! RateBeer craft beer tech app’s Joe Tucker joins us!

Wow… my mind is BLOWN! 4 years later and 200th episode of the Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet! weekly entrepreneurship podcast!

This week tech entrepreneur and RateBeer craft beer app owner Joe Tucker joins us on the show as they introduce their app into the Australian market with exclusive launch parties in Sydney and Melbourne.

RateBeer is a world site for craft beer enthusiasts dedicated to serving the entire craft beer community through beer education, promotion and outreach. ZX Ventures, AB InBev’s global growth and innovation division, invested in RateBeer two years ago, for $2M dollars in technology and the hiring of an Australian team to help drive the evolution of the global product.

Essentially, Australians will be able to buy “rare and highly-rated” beers through retail partners via the website, with additional enhancements including the introduction of push notifications and a clearer rate and review system.

Australia is RateBeer’s fourth biggest market globally, which makes it the perfect testing ground for the new developments. The company already has over 10,000 Australian beers logged from hundreds of breweries and we catch up with Joe Tucker at Odd Culture bar at the Taphouse Darlo as he launches the new RateBeer craft beer app into the Australian market. Exciting!

“Social media for business – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”

Spark Festival represent! 

In the midst of a digital media age where privacy breaches, social manipulation and world domination are a real concern – myself and 3 senior industry experts unveil the truths at Spark Festival in Sydney about social media and answer the million-dollar question for you – “Should I bother using Social Media for my start-up/business/personal brand?”

If you are an entrepreneur, founder, business owner or just curious about what our digital future has in store, then this is the podcast episode for you. Discover the different ways that you can (and cannot) use Social Media to scale your business, attract investors and become a recognisable brand.

  • The Good – The access to affordable advertising options and the opportunity of building and engaging a community of customers.
  • The Bad – The myth of organic traffic, vanity metrics, measuring ROI and reputation management.
  • The Ugly – User trust issues, fake accounts, fake news, bot takeover.

Join myself Benjamin Kassel ([Haimat] agency)Christo Hall (Basic Bananas) and Daniele Tanner (Social Media College) at Australia’s largest event for startups, innovators and entrepreneurs, as we deep dive into ‘Social Media for Business – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’.

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

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #198 Choose Day x hotndelicious x Secret Men’s Business.

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!
