Today, we welcome Rory Douglas to the show. Rory is a financial educator, a high-performance coach, author and the CEO of Aqua Financial Centre.  As you will hear, Rory spent a lot of time working with clients in the music industry and those with a significant amount of material wealth. So, we get into the world of wealth management and what wealth actually means.

Beyond this, this is a conversation about how finding a sense of purpose and meaning can (as we’ve explored before on the show) serve as a powerful anchor in the midst of stormy waters. But that takes work – it doesn’t ‘just happen’. We explore that too.

We also get into Rory’s background growing up with dyslexia and that that meant to his development  - and we get into an interesting phenomenon the population of entrepreneurs have twice as many dyslexics as the general working population of most advanced economies. We also get into decision-making, dealing with setbacks, and much more.

Today, we welcome fellow podcaster Steve LeClair to the show. Steve is an acclaimed wealth management professional in the USA. Beyond that, Steve is a bit of a kindred spirit in many ways because last year, he started a podcast called “Embracing Uncertainty” in which Steve interviews successful entrepreneurs about how they manage uncertainty. Obviously, given the past year, there are plenty of lessons.

Steve is also – like most interesting people – someone who has had a non-linear career path. He has applied lessons from one experience into another. We get into that, Steve’s experiences working for a telecoms company during the dot com bubble, dealing with setbacks, living, as Steve puts it, “a life of significance” and much more.

Jan 18, 2021

How often do you play? How often do you allow yourself to be silly, to do something just because it’s fun, with no particular objective in mind? As you will hear, most adults don’t play enough, something that may be an even bigger problem during this pandemic. “Play” is another way of saying “embrace uncertainty”. Remember when “uncertainty” wasn’t referred to as negatively as it currently is? We need to rediscover play.

Enter, Stage Right, Jeff Harry. Jeff’s mission is to show individuals and organisations how to tap into their true selves, to feel happiest and most fulfilled by playing. He has worked with Google, Microsoft, the NFL and many others. Jeff is also an accomplished speaker and has presented at the likes of SXSW and Australia’s Pausefest. He speaks to audiences around how major issues in the workforce can be solved using play. He was also selected by Engagedly as one of the Top 100 HR Influencers for his work around addressing toxicity in the workplace. His company is appropriately named Rediscover Your Play.

We get into the importance of play in this episode, how to initiate it, how Jeff gets serious adults to embrace play, how he helps organisations deal with toxic people and so much more.

Once again, we take a look back at some of our most memorable, popular, and relevant clips from our episodes of the past year. And, when we say “best of” this is always in quotation marks because we couldn’t include everything, and each episode may provide something special to every listener – this is all highly subjective!

 

2020 was of course, a challenging year and 2021 looks like it may be equally challenging. However, one of the things we have been reminded of in the past year is that uncertainty is an enduring aspect of life. We have been fortunate to bring together a variety of guests who have shared insights, tools, and practices on uncertainty that can serve us very well into 2021 and beyond.

 

We have clips from our episodes with:

 

Mike Clark

Dr. Jason Selk

Patrick McKeown

Jonny Miller

Georgie Nightingall

Chris Sparks

Alec Torelli

Christian Hunt

Saray Khumalo

Dr. Richard Harris
