Putting A Smile On People’s Faces. These guys had 5 of the top 100 beers in Australia in 2018! Canberra represent!

This week we kick it with GABS Hottest 100 craft beer killer and BentSpoke Brewing Co head brewer and co-founder Richard Watkins. 

“Putting a smile on people’s faces” is the mantra and philosophy that fires this inspiring husband & wife team, who are changing the face of the brewing scene in the Australian Capital Territory. We chat about Richard’s 1st ever home-brew with his dad, what inspired Richard and his wife Tracy to build BentSpoke Brewing Co from scratch, the Canberra community, his approach to business growth, leadership and success, the meaning of BentSpoke and 2 pieces of advice that he’d give to someone who has a dream, but is afraid to take that first step.

Super inspiring chats & I hope that you enjoy the podcast as much as I do! Let’s get into it!

Posted on Updated on

@NOTNOTCamScott x @hotndelicious entrepreneurship podcast LIVE at Bondi Beach!

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #210 Street Artist NOT NOT – Cam Scott – Street Art & Social Media.

Bondi Beach-based street artist NOT NOT aka Cam Scott captured my imagination last year with ‘Digital Realities’, his thought provoking street art series designed to have us individually to consider the impact of the behaviours and addictions that the major platforms and mobile phone technology are creating, breeding and feeding in society and our everyday lives.

From our digital selves to clickbait compulsions, this is a fascinating exploration into the digital world and I loved having him on the show! We share our own individual techniques that we use for regular digital escape, Centre for Humane Technology’s approach to ‘“realigning technology with humanity’s best interests, the LIKE IRL project, his TEDx TED Talk, how Cam Scott came to create his Sunnys Eyewear brand, ‘In Praise of Idleness’ and NOT NOT’s 2 key pieces of advice that he’d give to someone who has a dream, but is afraid to take that first step.

Super inspiring and fascinating chats with a highly intelligent, genuine, thoughtful and personable individual. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!

Podcast Feature: 3 x Brain Tumours & My Journey.

Posted on Updated on

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

DOWNLOAD the PODCAST via iTunes – #209 Brain Tumour Cast plus Small Biz Tips – Solocast.

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!

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.

Tom Richardson is a close mate of mine and inspirational Australian singer/songwriter, who has performed in 15 different countries, had his music featured on Rip Curl surfing documentaries and in 2018, hits a decade of travelling the globe with a dream job as a full-time independent musician since the age of 21.

On today’s podcast we chat about Tom Richardson’s latest EP ‘Promise of the Light’, which is due to launch worldwide in early 2018 and was recorded in solace in lakeside cabins in Alberta, Canada and jungle hideaways in Bali, Indonesia, before collaborating with close friends Benny Walker & Tim Bennett in home studios in the Adelaide Hills and with seaside views at his home in Warrnambool, Australia.

We also enjoy vast-ranging chats about the systems & processes and tools that Tom utilises as a small business owner to keep a balanced life of physical & mental health, his favourite podcasts including Song Exploder, The Tim Ferris Show and Pilgrim Heart with Krishna Das, different meditation and yoga techniques that he practicessharing stages with the likes Joe Bonamassa, Cold Chisel, John Butler Trio and a musical  passport of memories including musical collaborations with Native American poets, Indian Kirtan masters, Fijian highland village choirs & indigenous Australian icons. Fascinating chats!

This latest release truly reflects Tom Richardson’s nomadic schedule and his life across the past 10 years, which is a musical odyssey of regular tours around Australia, North America, Asia and Europe leading to “rave reviews, prime festival slots, and international airplay”.

Oh and we snapped up the exclusive 1st worldwide global release of ‘Somebody Say Love’, the first single off Tom Richardson‘s ‘Promise of the Light’ EP! YES!

Super podcast, top bloke. I know you will enjoy the show. Let’s get into it!
