Ange Simson - Female health & happiness coach, love filled writer and speaker, mum of two girls and cheerleader for wellbeing. This woman is beyond inspiring and we know that you are going to take so much away from this episode. Growing up in Sunny Townsville in QLD, you could say that Ange had a very blessed childhood with a wonderful family, relatively unaffected by tragedy but as a young teen she suffered from debilitating migraines which would often cause her to lose her vision and feel unbearable pain. It wasn't until Ange decided to take an active interest in her own health and wellness and made healthy lifestyle changes that her life dramatically changed for the better. This transformation inspired her to study at the world's largest school of holistic nutrition, The IIN which sparked a big hearted desire to help others to live their best lives in a state of gratitude and happiness. Now Ange is the founder of The Gratitude Project and more recently The Gratitude Gang - leading so many to their best health and freedom whilst also being a present conscious mumma. Enjoy xo
Today's Guest is the definition of a fierce female. Lisa Messenger is Australia's ultimate success story when she captivated her audience and quickly became a global sensation when launching her print magazine The Collective Hub in 2013. Lisa quickly gained a loyal community of aspiring entrepreneurs who were ready to say goodbye to the 9 to 5. Working alongside the likes Richard Branson, Anna Wintour and the world's biggest leaders, Lisa and her dedicated team provided their readers with inspiration, knowledge and the tools to support them to build their brand and businesses from the ground up. This author, motivational speaker and all round amazing human has shown the world that it takes hustle, grit and a hell of a lot of risk and resilience to build a global phenomenon. Lisa gives you all of the raw and honest details in her newest book Risk & Resilience which launched this month. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Lisa in her apartment to talk about the courageous decision to break The Collective Hub, the importance of being open and vulnerable, that big is not always better and her plans to rebuild a fool proof brand.
