Deanne Love says that a hula hoop rolled into her life 10 years ago. She’d quit her job as a primary school teacher, packed up her whole entire life in Australia and moved to Tokyo. Finding herself unhappy in a job singing to babies (yup, you read that right) and incredibly lonely in a foreign city, she took up hooping.

Little did Deanne know, her teaching background and her love of hooping would eventually collide to form the foundations of her passion-based business Hooplovers.

Deanne and I explore:

+ Going against the grain, leaving behind a life that looked right on the outside but felt wrong on the inside, to follow her ‘fuck yes’ feeling.

+ Her wild adventure in Tokyo, her story of discovering hoop dance AND meeting her husband.

+ How Deanne found her ‘girl gang’ – the women that support and love her.

+ The fear of rejection when we share our gifts with the world and Deanne’s perspective on moving through the fear anyway.

+ How she creates a profitable, creative, passion-fuelled business through the power of listening.

“I am always thinking how can I add value? How can I add so much value that people want to listen to the podcast, they want to support it, they want to help with its growth, they want to share it? That, for me, is a really key point.”

After working in finance for 8 years, Sarah Williams quit her city job and spent 18 months travelling the world, climbing Kilimanjaro, backpacking around South America and doing a ski season. She used this time to help her to decide what she wanted to do with her life.

On her return, she decided she wanted to motivate and inspire young girls. She developed Tough Girl Challenges and began speaking at local schools to girls about their goals and plans for the future.

Shockingly, she discovered many of the girls didn’t have any goals, most of them not being exposed to inspirational female role models.

In August 2015 Sarah launched the Tough Girl Podcast where she interviews inspirational female explorers, adventurers, athletes and everyday women who have overcome great challenges.

In this interview Sarah and I explore:

+ How Sarah grew her following to 800+ women in her Tough Girl Tribe Facebook group and 240,000+ downloads.

+ The systems and processes Sarah has in place for time management, productivity and promotion.

+ How Sarah monetises her podcast.

+ The opportunities and growth gifted to her through her podcast.

Alphamama is a forward-thinking, entrepreneurial artist who engages her audience through her raw and evocative performances.

Alpha was brought up in a very conservative, Christian household. She says that her Untangling began at the age of 17 when her Islamic boyfriend exposed her to the theory that all religions are true. Spun into a tailspin, Alpha realised she would have to start questioning all her current beliefs.

+ Alpha’s journey of breaking away from her Christian-focussed family to pursue her own life and beliefs.

+ How, by working on herself and cleaning up her own shit, she was able to heal her relationship with her father.

+ How Alpha has learnt to be present with and feel her emotions, especially the difficult ones.

+ Why following someone else’s cookie-cutter approach to spirituality doesn’t normally work.
