Looking back on Season Six, and reflecting on the stories and experiences shared by each of my guests, the word that stands out this season is FREEDOM! 

With so many experiences being described by my guests, we heard how freedom was a gift, a release, a discovery and a quest.

Whatever freedom might mean for you, there really is something for everyone in this season.

Here’s a quick reminder of our conversations:

  • Lou Featherstone on life as a positivity rebel: finding your own voice and discovering true inner confidence (Ep 81 & 82)
  • Natalie Balmain on wanting to be Prime Minister and building confidence from the inside-out (Ep 83 & 84)
  • Veronica Pullen on finding the unique gift inside ourselves and the importance of doing the inner work required to lead our mission (Ep 85 & 86)
  • Kate Flounders on who helps the helpers who support the most vulnerable and being a free-range human (Ep 87 & 88)
  • Dara Goldberg on eradicating ageism in the beauty industry and embracing the gift in a midlife mission (Ep 89 & 90)
  • Janey Lee Grace on tackling the white elephant, quitting the booze and living the holistic best life of your choice (Ep 91 & 92)
  • Frances Beecher on leading in the third sector to eradicate homelessness and the cost of being an all-in leader (Ep 93 & 94)

In the sharing of our stories and experiences, we encourage other women on a mission to do and BE more when all is going well, and we inspire others in those moments where we simply need to keep going too. 

Whether you are short on time, new to the podcast, or would simply enjoy a recap on the rich learning we have heard from each guest, this summary of Season Six is for you!
