Can you believe we are half-way through 2017?
Are you feeling a little underwhelmed with your progress?
Or maybe you're feeling a little overwhelmed by life?
Have you forgotten about the grand plans you had for 2017 on January 1?
Or maybe you have gotten caught back up in that hamster wheel of daily pressures? Chasing your tail? Feeling disappointed?
You're not alone, but it doesn't have to be this way. For any of us.
Here is a little checklist to get you on track to start living better every day.
Take 2017 back.
Frances Abbott is one of those people you meet who is here to shake things up. In the last 12 months she she has left her 9-5 job and followed her passion.
Leaving the safety and security of work is hard for anyone, but for this 26 year old, it has been the beginning of the biggest adventure of her life.
Are you a yes person? Do you struggle to say no? Do you often wind up overcommitted & overwhelmed?
You're not alone. Nearly all of us fall victim to people pleasing and nearly all of us need a little help with setting boundaries.
Setting boundaries with yourself is showing you that what is most important to you is most important to you. Constantly enforcing these boundaries with yourself is what is required in order for you to create and live a life that you love. Enable your actions to demonstrate your priorities and stop sabotaging yourself by saying yes.
Nothing in your life will change without you, so stop thinking about making your life better and start actually making it better.
Meet Samantha Eades. Co-founder of Style-Smiths and Jonny's and director of Samantha Eades. Sami is an entrepreneur, designer and total game-changer and her message today will change the direction of your life.
Life for Sami changed dramatically at 30 after an 11 year marriage ended and she left the fundamentalist religion she had been raised in. At this point in her life she had the option to make this devastation her story or to write a new one. She chose the latter and the past decade has been a blur of success, disruption, risk and love.
She is one of the most successful women in Australia and one of the most sought after designers in the world.
Her message is to find the beauty in your life. Inside and out. And live with this passion. Take risks, make mistakes, grab hold of your life with both hands and run.
Inspiring, exciting and super educational, this is the episode you will listen to twice and share with your friends.
Thank you Sami for being so incredible.

Meet Elyse Murphy - incredible Mum, wife, Chinese medicine Practitioner, acupuncturist and all-round super woman.
I asked Elyse to be on this podcast because she is one of those people you meet who just lights up the world. She is warm, funny, nice, fun, compassionate, open, generous and seriously just glows. Her son is happy, healthy and just the cutest thing ever and her husband somehow balances running a successful gym with being a professional athlete. So I was desperate to know how she does it all?!
How does she manage career, family, health and being so damn great all of the time? So today's podcast is all about balance and love. It's about tuning in to your body and nurturing it. It's about listening to what you need and staying on track with your life's purpose. It's about treating people well and recognising the joy there is in everything that surrounds us
Elyse is amazing and could not be better suited to our Strong Women Create Strong Communities series. I hope that you love this episode and that you love her as much as I do.
You know that thing you've always wanted? Dreamed of? Wished for? Hoped for? Yeah you know what I'm talking about about...
Well you're the reason you don't have it. Y
ou're the reason why your wishes haven't come true.
And you're the reason why all of this can change right now.
Last week on the podcast Penny Locaso talked about her "100 No's Project". Basically she is done with waiting and she's decided to ask for what she wants from here-on-in.
The 100 No's Project sets you the mission to receive 100 "no's" - i.e.: if you put yourself out there enough you're bound to get a heaps of yes's too.
So that's what today is all about. What are you willing to put into your life? Are you ready to get out of your comfort zone and get on to a path of so much better? Or are you just going to keep sitting back and wishing?
Welcome to Part 1 of the Your Revolution Strong Women Create Strong Communities Series. We are incredibly humbled to be joined by B.Kindred founder Penny Locaso.
Penny is on a mission to teach 1 million women how to nail their happy in work and life by 2020.
Recently Penny delivered a keynote in her bathing suit in front of 100 professionals, to demonstrate the power of getting comfortable with discomfort in order to make happy change. The moment went viral, was accoladed by professionals globally and inspired the #nakedforchange movement encouraging individuals to practice vulnerability for meaningful change in business and life.
A massive action taker, change expert and all round game-changer, Penny's message is simple, get curious about your life. Find out what excites you and with action comes clarity.
