Ep. 38 ... INTERVIEW with 2018 Psychologist of the Year, Dr Amy Talbot
This week's Finding Proof podcast saw me interviewing my wonderful friend, Dr Amy Talbot, who was last week announced as the inaugural Psychologist of the Year at the Allied Health Awards. Amy talks about her journey to becoming a psychologist, the isolation that can come with being a young leader and business owner, and how she hopes her award will shine a light on the treatment of eating disorders.

Ep. 37 - How to find your courage in the face of criticism and judgement
This was a cracker of an episode of the FINDING PROOF LIVE SHOW. It followed a rather interesting week where I not only faced some astonishing criticism (which I only let sway me for 24 hours!), but I also received some incredible coincidental validation and encouragement, which only served to further embolden me! It all comes down to fear of criticism. And acceptance that you WILL be judged if you're courageous enough to choose your voice over your comfort. Understanding that you WILL be judged takes an abundance mindset and the ability to stay focused on your big picture plan. Having a social media presence will open you up for criticism from others, whether it's because they don't understand what you're doing, don't like what you're doing, or worry about what you're doing. But social media is an increasingly important part of any modern business. Even the CEO of my profession's governing body has stated that social media must be at the forefront of our endeavours, in order to stay connected with our community. In this episode, I step you through how I stay strong in the face of judgement and criticism, and I share some stories from others as well, so you can stay strong too. Because you will be judged. It's a given. But that's okay.

Ep. 36 - INTERVIEW with New York therapist CLAY COCKRELL
Episode 36 of the Finding Proof Podcast sees me interviewing Clay Cockrell. Clay is a licensed clinical social worker, entrepreneur, actor, and theatre company owner. He's a disruptor too, bringing innovation to the world of therapy in the form of Walk & Talk and the Online Counselling Directory. Like anyone stepping outside the stereotype, he's faced his haters too, but took it all in his stride. It was my absolute joy to chat with him, and I'm hoping we'll catch up in person when I'm in New York next year!

Ep. 35 ... Tapping into your hidden skill sets.
This latest episode of the podcast shares with you Episode 11 of the FINDING PROOF LIVE SHOW that airs weekly on Facebook. I spoke about tapping into and honouring those hidden talents and knowledge bases that we all have, and we all overlook sometimes. What knowledge do you have that you take for granted? What skills do you possess that others would truly value if only you'd share them?

Ep. 33 - Collegiality Beats Competitiveness!
LIVE CHAT WITH GERDA MULLER - Back in September I attended the Australian Psychological Society's annual congress in Sydney and had the wonderful opportunity to chat with my dear friend and business mentor, Gerda Muller, about the importance of collegiality and collaboration in business. Having an abundance mindset makes collegiality a no-brainer.

Ep. 34 - Interviewing David Fuller - Australian musician, songwriter and producer.
This week on the Finding Proof podcast I'm interviewing my dear friend and all-round top Aussie bloke, musician and songwriter David Fuller. We go from laughter to darkness and back again. We share a glass of wine while our conversation covers his lifelong dedication to music, launching a music presence when you're not an 18 year old in a boy band, his years in the darkness of depression, and what saved him. One heck of a chat! Check out his tunes at

Ep. 32 - Bosses Have Feelings Too. Honouring the emotions of working relationships when they end.
In September, on RUOK Day I spoke on Facebook about the emotions that come with changing relationships in the workplace. This was recorded during a very intense period in my business, and I share it again now in the hope that you'll find some inspiration and encouragement if you're travelling tough terrain in your business too. #BossesHaveFeelingsToo

Ep. 31 - An average of 1 kid in every classroom has dyspraxia. Meet one of them.
In this episode of the Finding Proof podcast I have a relaxed chat with my son about what it's like living with dyspraxia. Never heard of dyspraxia? Harry Potter actor, Daniel Radcliffe, has it. One of the Doctor's newest companions on Doctor Who also has it. It's a coordination disorder affecting on average one kid in every class, and often goes undiagnosed. You'll learn a bit about dyspraxia in this episode, but you'll also learn how my family and I managed to find our own proof of how courageous and creative we could be in the face of our struggles. And the good news is, we're a happier family for it!

Ep. 30 ... Are you allowing the dust to settle? No? You should!
Are you doing yourself a disservice by not allowing the time you need to think, refresh, recharge, and reboot? Come on, as a business owner, creative, or entrepreneur you deserve better than that. You need creative solutions to your business dilemmas. Make sure you take the time you need. Your ideas are too precious to be lost to busy-ness!

Ep 29. Leave Your Job With Your Dignity Intact
What are the emotions involved in leaving a job? How do you leave with your dignity intact and your reputation in mind? I'll share a couple of personal stories (not my best moments in some cases) to help you find your own evidence to courageously leap from one job to the next without being labelled an arsehole! Meanwhile, in case you missed it, the intense emotional rollercoaster of being an employer when staff leave was this week's topic on the Finding Proof live show on FB. Check it out. (p.s. My apologies for the sound quality, and my sincere thanks to Danielle Kessler of 2MarketMedia for doing her level best over the past couple of days to tidy up the worst of it so I could publish this week as planned. Superstar!)

Ep. 28. Own Your Excuses To Achieve Your Goals
What excuses do you hear yourself saying time and again? Mine is "I don't have time". When you think about it, that's ridiculous. I have the same 24 hours as anyone else. For me to achieve my goals, I have had to own that nonsense excuse and challenge the hell out of it. Want to know how I did it? Listen on, my friends.

Ep 14 Communicate! No one can read your mind.
Related to the earlier episode where I remind you that you’re not actually a mind-reader, in this episode I remind you that neither is anyone else. How would your relationships improve if you stopped assuming others knew how you were feeling? The key is to communicate. Ask, tell, listen, but never assume!
