The Florescence Podcast

2. Learning How to Harness the Power of Our Brain Waves
I am super excited to bring you this valuable ep about brain waves and how they are influenced by our outer world. Please note I am no brain scientist, all concepts in this ep were derived from Dr. Joe Dispenza's book - How to Break the Habit of Being Yourself.  I introduce the ep with a bit of a chat about the different brain waves (Beta, Theta, Alpha, etc) and then I dive a bit deeper into how our brain waves develop from the minute we're born until we reach adulthood. It is so fascinating to think that a certain life event will affect us differently depending on what age we are and how much our brain has developed.  I hope you guys are as intrigued about the brain as I am!  Click below to chat with us!

35. Saying Goodbye...For Now w/ Felicia Aull
WE'RE TAKING A BREAK!! It's time to end Season One and sit back and plan for the future of the podcast!    I am really looking forward to a break as getting an episode out each week whilst working fulltime and having two other side hustles is starting to become a bit much!  This episode is a quick life update and reflection on S1, as well as a sneak peak in what plans I have during the break! I will still be active on Instagram whilst we take a break from actively creating episodes so I'm always just a message away.   Thank you, everyone, for your endless support xo Chat with us:

34. Overseas Travel, Bold Life Decisions & Personal Growth w/ Tayla from The Piggyback Club
Tayla's life mission is to meet cool people and do cool shit, could it get any simpler?  Tayla is back in NZ after the pandemic caused her college in America to stop all sports where she was overseas on an athlete scholarship. We chat about how her overseas experiences have shaped her into who she is today.  We chat about how Tayla has built the confidence to make bold life decisions on the spot, if she wants to move somewhere she does it, and makes it happen without thinking about all the "what if's".   We then hear about how Tayla's personal development journey started from the age of 10 when she picked up her first "self-help" book. Tayla is the creator behind the Piggyback Club which aims to make self-development more relevant and relatable for young people.   Connect with Tayla: Chat with us: Intro & Outro Music:

33. Job Loss, Reconnecting to your Feminine & Escaping Societies Box w/ Kendall from Kendall Brown Coaching
What if losing your job was the best thing that ever happened to you? To the outside world, Kendall appeared to have it all, the high paying corporate job, bustling social life and busy lifestyle but inside, she was crumbling. Kendall was completely out of alignment (but didn't know this at the time) and it showed, she had crippling anxiety and depression.  Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?) Kendall lost her job due to Covid-19 which accelerated her spiritual awakening journey, she invested in a coach and over the course of six months completely transformed her life. Her redundancy allowed her to spend 2020 investing time, energy, money and love into herself, something she had never done before.  Kendall is now a Certified Women's Life Coach and Holistic Health Coach whose mission is to guide women towards rediscovering their true self. Grab a cuppa and enjoy our juicy chat!!  Connect with Kendall: Chat with us: Intro & Outro Music:

30. Falling Out Of Love with Your Business w/ Felicia Aull
This week I learnt that it is okay (and probably normal) to fall out of love with your business. When you first start a project there is so much excitement and sparkle within everything you do. There is also an element of anticipation as you wonder how successful your new business or project will be. It's new, it's fresh, of course, you're going to be hyped! Everyone always talks about these highs in entrepreneurship, but people rarely talk about the times when you lose motivation, when you doubt your business and your product, when you want to give up and wish you never entered entrepreneurship because it's bloody hard work!  You start to think if you can't believe in your business no one can. Until recently, I didn't allow myself to validate these feelings because I thought I wasn't "allowed" to feel this way because it was my business, my baby. But I'm human and this is all part of the experience, to ride the wave of entrepreneurship and pick up everything you can learn along the way.  I hope you enjoy this ep of me unpacking what it means to fall out of love with your business and how I plan to navigate it.  Chat with us: Intro & Outro Music:

28. Work-Life Balance, Gender Pay, & Taking the Leap w/ Steph from Stephanie Love Consulting.
Steph has over 10 years experience in HR in the corporate world and she is the definition of "taking the leap!" When things haven't gone to plan or how she expected them to, she has swiftly changed directions to ensure she stays in alignment and true to herself. When what she thought was her "dream job" wasn't, she packed up her whole life and moved back to NZ. Steph and I talk about the work she is doing for gender pay gaps and diversity in organisations and her observations of how the corporate workplace has evolved over the past 10 years. We dive deep on workplace culture in a post-Covid world and what employees are no expecting to achieve a better work-life balance (if that is even a thing!!)
