We'll be talking COVID19, Resilience, Mindset, Dealing with Setbacks and more. The global pandemic is new territory. It will push us to think, act and work in different ways. We plan to add value to that conversation.
Sleep and Win!
Everyone knows that a bad night of sleep can easily affect your mood and performance the next day. Even losing what seems like small hours (1 to 3 hours) of sleep can lead to a fall in your mental and physical performance. However, there are others too that take sleep for granted. Always thinking that as long as they can function they are good to go with how many hours of sleep they can get the night before.
But sleep is so much more than taking a few hours of rest, and as an athlete, I have come to realise that aside from training, physical conditioning and conscious eating, sleep plays a vital role in my performance and competitive results.
I have invited Ian Dunican, Director Sleep 4 Performance and an expert in optimising productivity and performance, to talk about sleep and to help us understand how sleep affects our cognitive and physical performance.
Take away some great tips and tricks, and stop struggling with sleep in our latest The No Xcuses Show episode,
Have you ever met someone whose passion is so palpable? This week I was fortunate to interview yet another driven and passionate individual who is out to make a difference in the world.
My latest guest Amna Karra-Hassan founded the first ever AFL Women’s team in Western Sydney. Amna engages with a diverse audience and facilitates difficult conversations.

Welcome back Grit Nation! It has been an amazing journey so far in the last 3 weeks that we have been doing Daily Grit Live. I am hoping that it has now become a weekly habit for all of you – Mondays at 4:00 PM.
In our 4th edition of DailyGrit Live, I had the privilege of interviewing a real-life mermaid! Nah, just kidding, although that isn’t exactly far off. My guest was Julia Wheeler, a freediver, wildlife photographer, conservationist and all around wonderful person.
This week’s featured guest is Theo Venter. Theo is a fellow speaker, who focuses his talks on workplace safety by sharing his incredible story of survival. His inspiration stems from a tragic work accident which nearly claimed his life. The only person known to have survived a 22,000 volt electrocution, Theo is exceptional in more than one way.
Watch his full interview below and find out how Theo recovered emotionally from this life-threatening experience and eventually became an inspiration not just in the workplace but also for his courage to overcome challenges.
One of the greatest understatements people use is to say that life is unfair. In truth, it can be excruciatingly difficult and challenging. Dana Vulin is someone who understands this better than most. This week’s Daily Grit Live guest was subjected to a horrible attack that left her with burns on 64% of her body at the age of 25, and diagnosed with cancer a couple of years later. The first word that comes to mind when describing Dana is survivor.
Watch the link below to hear how she went through the long and hard journey to recovery and acceptance and how her positive attitude got her through life’s toughest spots. I have no doubt that you will be amazed!
Monday, October 16th, 2017 - Daily Grit Live is my newest project, one that I hope all of you will enjoy. For our first live interview last 16th of October, I had the pleasure of interviewing Olivia Vivian, who you may know from her gymnastics achievements, including the 2008 Summer Olympics or the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and may have seen recently in the Australian Ninja Warrior.
