Dean is extremely the one to chat to when it comes to the latest and greatest preventative and regenerative medicine. So what’s all the hype about… well it’s purely the most inspiring discussion I have had with a person to educate, offer stem cell therapy products and training to not only medical practitioners but to empower the consumer/ person that has a condition and making this technology accessible for patients throughout the world. We talk about the bio-technology of this incredible treatment, how it works and the amazing results it has on people. Did you know Dean has opened one of the first stem cell walk in clinics in Australian, named MSK Stem Cell. Dean is determined to share his story that some might consider to have had some heartache, but he’s turned this around to fulfil on a purpose to enable better strategies for health and a bigger impact on quality of life for all.
John and his dedicated team have built an incredible financial platform named True Pillars to provide debt to small business owners and a return for investors that want to “back” small business owners growing a business. His story is most inspiring and one that many migrants can relate to by this I mean by watching their parents and families work hard to build their lives in foreign countries to provide a more prosperous life for their children. In John’s words to the hard working small business owners this is his message, “ You are the true pillars of this country, not the banks who get called the four pillars and earn hundreds of millions of dollars a month. You are the inspiration behind my business and how we named it. Our mission is to open up access to debt finance that your business can afford, thereby allowing it to grow and achieve its potential. I hope that in time we will prove that we have succeeded in that mission.” Thank you John for your insights and this incredible platform that is helping so many people.

Kate Mills is just one of my favourite people really…I enjoy so much reading her blogs and listening to her talk about Professional Mums.. maybe its because I fit into that box to some degree so I can relate to all her stories. In this interview we grapple with the idea of Nature vs Nurture - biology says women are the home organisers and men are the hunters but the case for many women is that they do both ... hunt which means they work and organise the home and statistics show they are still doing more of this job ! So getting some sort of balance is really important but getting it is the key. We explore what is working flexible all about - what does it really look like in the workplace and what are the options for women especially those returning to the workforce after having children. Kate shares a few new statistics of working women and working mums that she is seeing in the the workplace. We delve into the very huge topic on diversity ... are we getting there; is the attention in media helping what are the top Australian Companies doing to support women in the workplace. Thanks Kate always a pleasure to chat with you.

Maria started Ladies Running Errands 7 years ago when she found herself recovering from an illness and could not get someone to help her get around to medical appointments, and she has a huge family network (sound familiar)! It made her realise that if she is feeling this pinch then there must be other people in society who are in need of help with their errands, especially to help with watering the garden or help with children logistics. Learn from her tales of having self belief, starting from nothing with some good old fashioned marketing strategies and the obstacles that she has faced to fund her business growth but also the partnerships she has formed to make it possible to franchise the business around the Nation. We thanks Maria for her insights.
