Kate Golle is a proud wellness warrior, a mumma of 3, freedom business coach, health advocate, lover of life and a dream chaser!
I got to know Kate through a private Facebook community that she started with her husband Anthony called Empowered Lifestyle Revolution to empower people to make informed medical decisions including (but not limited to choices around vaccinations). In a climate of genuine concern in the midst of the Covid19 pandemic, the group grew rapidly and now has more than 42,000 members! Their message is simple - life is what you make it, so make it!
In just a few months the group has already empowered hundreds of men and women to make conscientious choices for the own health and wellbeing.
This is not their first time coaching men and women in the Lifestyle Design space by any means! Dreamlifestylers, Tribal Wellness Movement, the powerful documentary Overfed and Undernourished and the book Raising Healthy Kids in Unhealthy Times are all testaments to Kate and Anthony's commitment to helping others live life to the full.
Kate has so much knowledge and experience but is still has down-to-earth, humble quality; always learning, always willing to share, and always striving to make her life and those around her better.
On this episode you'll hear Kate also talking about the importance of lifestyle balance and how success is not just about health, money, or any other sort of number but a much bigger story than that. If you feel the same way, then I encourage your to kick start your own personal Lifestyle Design journey with the Lifestyle Design Quiz to help you get clearer on what matters most to you and break down for you the maximised lifestyle design process.
Today we are talking with one of Australia's leading business coaches. He is a man who has been really successful in business and has helped many others build their own success to have a more powerful impact in the world.
Meet legendary business mentor and friend of mine Wez Hone.
Wez is the founder of Business Greenhouse and the Kingdom Business network.
He has coached more than 240 companies and helped them earn 500 million dollars in extra revenue. Wez is passionate about helping believers, men and women of faith, to create and grow an impact for business and to further advance the Kingdom of God.
If you're at all interested in building a great business in order to have a bigger, more positive impact in the world around you then you're not going to miss this episode!
Wez has ridden the roller coaster of life - the ups and downs, and he has some great stories to tell, but one of his great strengths is his no-fuss, always-learning, always growing attitude.
He shares from a firm conviction and confidence that business was and is always going to be "his thing" and he is genuinely excited about helping 'Kingdom Entrepreneurs' scale their business and use their success to have a positive influence on our current culture.
Wez is a family man, happily married to Kimberly and blessed with three beautiful girls he shares with us how he navigates a busy schedule with balance and purpose. You'll hear about the importance of the 'mind-game' in business and life and Wez shares some simple but effective strategies he uses to ensure he is looking after his own lifestyle balance.
Of course if you want to empower yourself with positive purpose and clarity around your OWN personal strength, impact in the world and what you need to focus on for growth right now - then you need to take the Lifestyle Design Quiz! It'll give you a free personalised report and help you to get clear on your next steps to live your own maximised life.
Wex has so much good stuff to share on how to build a great business and life!
Let’s get into the podcast…
A little while back I attended a special online presentation called "Activating Your Assignment - Sabotage or Success?" and the presenter was Simone Leslie, a Master Neuro Strategist, who I'm excited to say, is today's guest on the podcast.
She really blew me away with how she could break down really powerful concepts! And I knew that this was going to be a great conversation to help all of you (and me) keep giving our best and getting the most out of life.
Simone is the author of It’s OK to be Beautiful: Heavenly Whispers to a Broken Heart and has been a master strategist for the last 20 years. She’s also a speaker both with live audiences and on national TV. She specialises in "combining neuroscience, quantum physics, and emotional intelligence, clearing neurological blockages that cause self-sabotage to help people breakthrough and achieve success."
Her success journey has not only been for personal fulfilment, - along with her husband Dave, they’ve founded several orphanages and early learning centres in different places around the world including: Cambodia, Zambia, Ethiopia and Kenya. She uses profits from her book and business to fund these and other social enterprise projects all around the world.
This conversation brings out many fantastic truths. And to be sure that you’ll get all these valuable chunks of information, don’t forget to download the Key Takeaways Guide that you can use to take action.
What does it really take to be successful in life?
Big question, right? But it actually boils down to a few foundational principles - including the topic of today’s podcast. Having a GROWTH MINDSET.
This was first explored and introduced by Stanford University professor Carol Dweck and her team. Basically, a growth mindset is a belief that talent is not innate. It is about believing in your own potential; that you can do anything that you want to do, you just have to want it bad enough and believe that you can.
Today we get to chat with someone who has done incredible work in improving kids' mindset particularly their growth mindset-- Alexandra Eidens. She is the developer of The Big Life Journals and The Big Life Kids Podcast. Her journey captures what it is to have a growth mindset. She shares about her failures (especially when she was just starting) but also how she recognised these and educated herself to bounce back and ultimately make her idea work.
Alexandra has already positively impacted thousands of kids and families around the world and it was a privilege to have her on the show - I hope you enjoy it too!
Today, we’re joining back up again with my two guru friends in the education and communication spaces - Lee Hancock and Jason Knight.
In the last episode, they unpacked for us the fundamental role of wellbeing for students and how important that is in the education system. We also unpacked what education can learn from business especially the way technology can be used to transform the learning experience.
These two very smart guys and leaders of innovation in their respective fields. Lee is the winner of the 2020 New South Wales Premier Teachers’ Award and he points out how teachers have rapidly adapted in the face of the challenges brought by Covid19.
For this episode we've put together an Education Innovation Checklist with all the themes and topics tackled in this two-episode discussion. I hope this helps you to take action and apply more innovation in what you do in the education space.
Don’t forget to download the free resource from Episode 21-- Lee’s Top 10 Education Apps. It's a list of the tools he effectively used with many other teachers he works with.
In episode 21, we have been talking about the strategies that we could use right now given the rapid changes we've needed to make to adapt to the pandemic and so we’re picking up that conversation right now…
In this episode, we are going to dive again into the world of education.
We can't have a breakthrough in our struggles without learning. Learning is an essential ingredient of success. Education is how we scale learning - and therefore scale success - at least, it should be...
For way too long 'education' has been about jumping through bureaucratic hoops in order to meet someone else's version of who we should be. Not only do we end up learning a plethora of useless information, but (worse) we develop a mental habit of believing that 'success' will come when we follow someone else's rules and play someone else's game - and it just isn't true!
So we need to discover new ways of how we can make education better for our kids. Not just kids, for parents, educators and adult learners as well.
It's already happening and you can join the revolution!
Today, joining us are trailblazers also in this field: Lee Hancock and Jason Knight.
Today, using the current crisis climate as a catalyst, we are talking about how we can move into an exciting iteration of what education could be.
Lee Hancock is an exciting innovator in the education and digital space while Jason Knight is a communication and brand guru. They will both share how education could and should be about capturing the key ingredients for success and for empowering people.
Just like our episode with Marianne Power we're going to break this into two episodes.
This episode will be about what's going on now and what we could learn,
and the next episode will be about the solutions and what these two amazing guys think could happen given the massive changes happening around education. This episode is sponsored by the Dangerous Minds course.
Let's get into it!
Last week, we learned about Marianne’s background and how the amazing Posify group came to be.
She had just started sharing her four very practical tips for promoting mental health but I felt we needed to break up the episode to be sure we didn't miss a single bit of this enthusiastic conversation. I didn't want to edit this down and so we're going to keep going through each technique - step by step so you get the full value out of this episode.
If you haven't heard episode 18 yet, be sure to go back and listen to that one first so that you've got the background for this series.
Marianne is a fountain of knowledge and SO passionate about her content - you'll hear that when you listen today.
Be sure to get your copy of the Wellbeing Posters - a self-awareness resource that you can stick up at home, in your workplace, or wherever you are going to stumble across it and take some simple steps to optimise your mental health and wellbeing available throughout this 2-part episode.
In this very challenging time, looking after our personal well-being and mental fitness is of paramount importance.
This is a 2-part podcast sharing the insight and knowledge of Marianne Power - an expert in the field of positive psychology and one half of the dynamic duo from Posify Group.
Marianne is a fountain of knowledge and very passionate about what she does, and together we unpack the essential ingredients PLUS some very practical strategies for maintaining a healthy mind in these difficult times.
In this episode, Marianne shares her story and how Jen and her have synthesised their skillsets to allow Posify to do amazing work and have a powerful impact in the community. We also explore this current season and the opportunities for growth that are available in this season.
(In the next episode, she will be sharing the top positive practices and strategies that are most essential in keeping a healthy mind - be sure to subscribe so you don't miss that!)
During these episodes, you will hear about our Wellbeing Poster Series - a self-awareness resource that you can stick up at home, in your workplace, or wherever you are going to stumble across it and take some simple steps to optimise your mental health and wellbeing.
Let's get into it!
"How do I dream and achieve bigger than the ordinary?"
"Do I have to be ‘special’ to be successful?"
I think we can all relate.
Many young people have these questions in their mind and most of us have walked into adulthood with these same doubts clouding the back of our heads... only to resurface whenever life calls us to 'step up' and go to the next level. These same fears come flooding back in and we are reminded just how inadequate we feel. It's that same feeling of doubt and being an 'imposter' that keeps us playing small.
Today that can change.
Meet Liz Volpe. Top female entrepreneur in Australia but also a leader in the social impact space who has helped spark inspiration among young people all over the world.
Listening to a successful businesswoman and social entrepreneur like Liz share how she spent much of her formative years lacking confidence and not knowing what she was meant to do or how to go about doing it can reassure us and inspire us all to question our own limiting beliefs about ourselves and whenever we want to step up.
Liz shares how her journey started and went, managing to start her own company at a young age of 22 to discovering the world of social enterprise and redefining her success in terms of 'impact' more than 'things'.
This podcast is an important story for RIGHT NOW. A lot of uncertainties are yet to unfold around the COVID19 crisis. But Liz shares her own experience in shifting her business to actually turn challenges into opportunities.
Liz is the real-deal entrepreneur. I know that her story is going to inspire YOU to dream bigger!
This episode is a resource giveaway! I’m giving out a tool to help you develop a HAPPINESS HABIT-- so you can become more productive, more efficient, and live HAPPIER.
This week I was inspired by a talk I heard recently from Kelly George (who we've interviewed before) talking about building habits.
I know HABITS seem to be boring, less exciting than GOALS.
When we hit our goals, we celebrate. But with habits, they're invisible, often we don’t even notice that we're doing them.
But in all the areas I work - coaching and education, for young people or for adults, developing positive habits is a key part of the process in redesigning our lives.
So I thought I'd share with you one of the tools I use with ALL of my clients.
This is a great first step for you to start redesigning your life...
Normally, I’d be showing up to do this on a Monday – but this week is extra special because next week – on Monday, I’ll be kicking off one of my presentations at the Australian Homeschool Summit, which is also sponsoring this episode.
In just a couple of weeks, we've from roughly 5% of people who choose to home-educate to nearly 90%! This really is an UNPRECEDENTED change in how we live our lives. But for the people who are presenting at the Summit (myself included) we’ve been doing this for years.
Which means for years I've been studying what it means to create and deliver 'life-inspired' education - and TODAY I'm going to share with you FIVE of my biggest inspirations.
Maybe you’re planning to send your kids back to school as soon as the doors open?
OR maybe you’ve kinda liked the experience of spending more time with your kids and developing a NEW NORMAL?
Either way - it doesn’t matter! These 5 videos are going to inform and inspire your outlook on the best way to coach and educate your child into the future...
This week’s podcast is an interview with my life coaching mentor when I was studying at the Life Coaching Academy – Jane Taylor.
Jane spent her formative years progressing up the ranks of professional tennis, overcoming viral meningitis and multiple injuries along the way to become one of the top-ranked women's players in Australia.
After an injury at the 1997 US Open ended her tennis career, it was time to re-imagine her own life beyond elite sport. As a passionate life learner, she studied a double degree in education and taught a few years in schools before becoming the regional director of MIND MATTERS - a national education initiative in mental health and wellbeing.
This interview started out as a conversation about being a positive voice in these challenging times. Having lived through her own share of adversity, Jane always has an uplifting quote to offer in dark days. But it became an interview about celebrating your humanity. The complexity, the multifaceted nature of who we are.
We are so much more than what we do.
This conversation goes deep, in a different way, to examine what does it mean to live life to the full – being ALL of who you are...
So many questions right now. So many unknowns. What's going on? Will I loose my job? What restrictions will be next? Am I safe? Are there opportunities for me in this time?
I get it. There's a lot of uncertainty. A lot of change - and that makes people uncomfortable.
But ONE THING hasn't changed.
Who you are - and the Call on your life doesn't change with the seasons.
Sure it builds and grows - but at it's essence, it remains constant.
In this podcast, I want us to focus on KNOWING YOUR WHY.
In my business, I've needed to make pretty urgent shifts too. And being sure about why am I doing what I’m doing has a lot to do with my capability to decisively take a pivot and adapt to changes.
Everything around you may change but never loose sight of the fact that you have the seeds of greatness within you. New opportunities are waiting for us - both right now with this crisis AND at the other side - and being sure with your WHY will light the path to get you there.
I'm hearing a lot of stories from my friends (and you're probably hearing the same things) about people doing it tough. Maybe you're one of them.
Maybe you have lost your job OR maybe you are facing unprecedented expectations from work that you're not even sure you can handle? OR you just might be stuck at home, struggling under the pressure of working remotely PLUS trying to homeschool your kids with limited resources.
Don't worry, I get it. My business has been twisted around completely in these uncertain times as well. But I also know that with every challenge, there's an opportunity.
Imagine we were together in person right now at a cafe (remember those?) and I was coaching you. We are going through a process called 'future-pacing'. I'm asking you some questions designed to inspire you and get you thinking beyond the rut of day-to-day living that has become a frustration for you in the last few years...
One of the questions I ask is...
Let's take a quick jump back in history to see how we started this thing called "school" and what is it actually for?
School is for learning, and learning is for life!
So what happens when the system we use for schooling passes it's use-by date?
Do you redesign it or jump hobble on with the same old model with some upgrades?
Authentic Learning is all about leveraging real-world problems to maximise the learning experience. Not only is it most relevant and learning is richer, the kids actually engage and enjoy it more!

Today's podcast is for all the men out there (and the women who care about them!) who know they're called to a fit and healthy expression of manhood but feel that society sometimes is pulling you in the opposite direction.
We are grateful to have Matt Defina of The Man Cave share his experiences digging deep on issues concerning men’s mental health and well-being. Inspired by his adventurous childhood, he shares some of the amazing work he's doing at the Man Cave for young men and boys and tackles how creating safe spaces matters in men’s behavioural development.
Some might say he was 'bred from birth' to be a super 'Men's Mental Health Ninja' 😉 😂
- but as insightful as he is, Matt views himself as just an ordinary guy with struggles like everyone else.
This is a powerful interview where the Head of Programs for one of Australia's most innovative and up-and-coming providers of preventative mental fitness for young men opens up and offers vulnerable, heartfelt insights for life that we can all benefit from...
In today’s podcast, I’m talking with a mum who has not only discovered a powerful way to motivate and inspire her kids in their learning, but also built a heart-centred, lifestyle business.
Meet Kelly George. When I first connected with Kelly, she was hiking the Te Araroa Trail across New Zealand with her beautiful family of five and her husband Daniel. That's the kind of adventures that they've come to know as 'life' as they live it on their own terms.
Kelly is what some might call a 'life-hacker' - her life as a mother and wife drove her to think of ways to create an income without giving up the benefits of time with family and in the end it was her experience in homeschooling her own kids that paved the way.
She applies a refreshing pragmatism and courage that cuts across the traditional assumptions that keep most of us locked in our 'social script'. Her business, Fearless Homeschool gives her the freedom to live this amazing lifestyle but also allows her to support hundred of other families doing the same!
In this sincere but practical interview, Kelly shares her unique insights into education and thinking outside the education (and social) boxes we all seem to get stuck in.
The answers you need are never far away, you just need to know the right questions to ask...
In today’s podcast, I’m unpacking FIVE key questions that hone in on the FIVE lifestyle domains that my clients and I explore together and (I think) are essential for living a happy, whole-hearted, fulfilled life.
GET THE FREE PDF GUIDE FOR THIS EPISODE
In this episode I'll share, not only where I've stumbled across success, but also where I struggle and how these 5 simple questions put a spotlight on how and where I need to change and grow.
It's popular and sexy to talk about 'magic formulas' for success, but the reality is a great life is never created in one single moment - it is a series of small, daily actions all moving in a positive direction and all aligned with your core purpose, that stack one upon the other to build monumental impact. It's doing the little things well. THAT is what these questions will help you to focus on.
I started out with 5 questions - linked to the 5 lifestyle domains - but I ended with SEVEN questions. The extra 2 bonus ones, I just couldn't leave out! These will bring it all together and give you some options for action as you set about designing your ultimate future. :)

Are you living the abundant life?
In today's podcast, I'm chatting with a good friend of mine, a man who I think has cracked the code and is actively living the abundant life.
I'd like you to meet Terry Powers - a Chiropractor, Acupuncturist, Kinesiologist, Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbalist (not a bad resume, eh?) Together with his brother Leigh (plus the other family members always floating about) they run Powers Health.
Terry has passion for helping people live at their peak - the way God designed for us and he treats people for every ailment you could imagine - from allergies, to muscle strains to behavioural disorder to grief and loss.
Along with all of this, together with his wife Vinny, they are raising a beautiful family.
She is also a passionate health advocate, sharing the benefits of Doterra Essential Oils with her clients and his older children have now graduated their school education to pursue psychology and music (see the links below for Bianca's new single)
Terry's unique approach to life and business has inevitably raised some eyebrows and he shares some insights about facing challenging people and opinions in this episode.
You know I love helping you to take action! So, as a bonus I've used the content from this episode to create a free downloadable resource:
The 5-day Health & Vitality guide with Terry Powers.
It's a practical actionable guide to make sure you are living your abundant life.

In this episode, you'll get a deeper understanding of the crazy life of a life coach/creative entrepreneur and learn how you can apply this simple idea to your own life. You are invited to contribute to the conversation over at the blog - www.blueprintlifecoaching.com.au/post/episode007 hope to see you there!
Welcome to 2020 - AND a new decade!
It's such an exciting time and an exciting opportunity. As I was reviewing my content I knew I REALLY wanted my first podcast for 2020 to pack a punch and deliver some key insights for living the abundant life we aspire to here on the Blueprint.
When I re-listened to the interview - I knew this was it.
Sarah is such a clam and unassuming personality but she drops some real gold nuggets in this interview and I can't wait to share it.
In this podcast we're going to unpack what THREE key principles Sarah has used to shape her own happy, healthy laptop lifestyle as a mother of 2 (soon to be 3) children AND how she uses these same 3 principles to guide her clients from all across Australia to success in their health and fitness goals.
If you were unstoppable, what would your life look like?
We live our own individual lives everyday. We have our family, our regular job, or usual routine. The question is, is this really what we want to do in life? Do we feel happy? Are we all fulfilled? When was the last time that you have fearlessly went out of your comfort zone and chased after your dreams despite that little voice in your head saying that you can't do it? We all want change but at the same time we fear change. We want to become better yet we're too lazy to do what it takes to improve.
In today’s podcast, I am talking with Ellie – from Ellie Bell Coaching – who specialises in helping people with transformation and change – and I’ve got to say – she’s made some big brave leaps in her own life before becoming a life coach!
Ellie's journey is an inspiring story about how she left her corporate job in the UK and moved to New Zealand to be with the man of her dreams and start a family. Along the way she has uncovered her passion to help others as a life coach . On the podcast she'll share the Wheel of Life tool and talk about her free e-book "OVERCOMING NEGATIVE BELIEFS". You'll also hear about Thrive After Sport - a coaching service that she started with her Husband Matt to help athletes transition out of a career professional in sports.
Challenging the status-quo is hard. Are YOU ready for it?
We grew up in a world where our parents and teachers told us what we need to do in order to reach our goals in life.
We were taught to follow the "social script"
Nothing wrong with this. it is stable, predictable and it will take you where you want to go at some point. We were taught we must follow these steps and go through the cycle. But the world is changing faster than it ever has before. What worked 20 years ago just DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE!
Find out what does!
Have you ever been in a situation when you feel like your life is over? Can you still come out of the darkness?
We all experience adversities in life. A time when you hit rock bottom. As Brene Brown would call it - your "face-down" moment.
There are circumstances that you never think you'll be in. Stuff that you think only happens to other people - not you.
If there's one thing that is assured in this life - it is struggle. Struggle is what shapes us, defines us and ultimately (if we let it) builds our character. When that happens we strengthen and equip ourselves for a better tomorrow. Stronger. Smarter. Braver than before.
Never say die!
What if there was a model of success that was hidden in every story, in every culture, from every time period around the world?
Today, we are looking an ancient formula to design your life and learning experiences – we’re going to be unpacking the Hero’s Journey.
The Hero's Journey was a concept first conceived by mythologist Joseph Campbell, he wrote a book which has been read millions of times over since it was first published in 1949 - The Hero with a Thousand Faces. In it he recounts his study into dozens of myths from all around the world and outlines a pattern - a blueprint - that every hero follows on his or her quest for greatness.
Hope you enjoy it!
We all want to live a complete, happy, healthy and wealthy lifestyle, am I right? But how do we really achieve it? Is it really achievable?
I am sure that at some point, you have said to yourself – "I want to achieve that health and body goals" or "I want to get a fulfilling career with big dollars" or even saying "I want to travel the world!" Or how about "I want to be happy being with the man/woman of my dreams".
But is there really a secret formula to help us get these goals?
While there is no genie that can grant us three wishes or magic spell that can give us everything that we want, there is certainly a process that can help us unlock our inner potential and turn these dreams into a reality. And THAT is what I am very excited and happy to share with you today on the podcast!
Today, we're going to unpack the 5 key principles of Lifestyle Design – that you can use to start living YOUR maximised life. This is the exact same process I've used to redesign my own life and now use every week to take my clients from ordinary to amazing in just 90 days.
These 5 key principles are taken from the world of product design - where I first learned how to create - and translated to help people discover their own different versions of success in the domains of business, career, family, romance, health, fun and adventure.
To get you started on your own creative Lifestyle Design adventure, there is also an awesome free resource that you can use >> the Lifestyle Design Quiz
For now, get your pen out and get ready to take some notes as you listen to today’s podcast.
