Lessons From Success Episode 8 – Alicia Gowans – Bodybuilding, Personal Training & Building Your Instagram Following

Welcome to this week’s exceptional guest episode of Lessons From Success.  This episode is definitely something slightly different from the usual interview as we chat with Alicia Gowans from Ally’s Angels & Alphas.  Ally has built her personal training company from the ground up and has transformed over 1500 clients with many of them hitting the professional bodybuilding stage.

We differ from the standard entrepreneurial talk this week as we dive into health, weight loss, building an Instagram following and creating a successful company in a saturated market.  Ally’s results speak for themselves with over 57 pro card wins, over 130 top 3 finishes and 1500 client transformations and we think you’ll absolutely love what she has to say. For more information on Alicia jump over to www.allysangels.com.au or give her a follow @aliciagowans_wbffpro & @fitangelsworld.  Enjoy!

Lessons From Success Episode 7 – Marc Orchard – Lessons From Over 200 Startups

Welcome to the mind-blowing 6th guest episode of Lessons From Success.  This episode interviews Marc Orchard, head of startups at BDO, the global accounting firm.  Marc lead the non-for-profit startup hub Fishburners in Brisbane City and has seen well over 200+ entrepreneurs go through to success and failure.  This interview is important for anyone and I mean anyone. After seeing so many entrepreneurs rise and fall Marc’s advice is so crucial to anyone looking to start a business, work in a business or run a business.

I have purposely left timestamps out of this interview as there are so many crucial parts I wouldn’t recommend anyone skipping through any of it.  As far as spending your time listening goes this hour could be one of the most important you ever spend to fast track wherever you are on your journey. Marc has generously allowed me to share his BDO email @ marc.orchard@bdo.com.au and welcomes any questions or enquiries you have for him.

Welcome to the very first episode of Lessons From Success.  This is just a short intro to go through the basics of what our plans for the show are all about, along with some cool info on which platforms to find us, who the podcast is best suited for and why you should spend your precious time listening to me and my guests.

Who Are We?

Lessons From Success is an Australian podcast that gets deep and personal with successful people from many different walks of life.  My goal as the host is to offer you a fresh perspective each episode on the different paths you can take to reach your goals, dreams and desires.

My Challenges

Ever since starting my journey I’ve had business ADD. Constantly seeking out new and exciting challenges, feeling mundane in my day jobs and having a feeling of overall discontent in my work life.  After searching everywhere for knowledge and answers I realised there’s massive amounts of international content from places like New York, Silicon Valley and London but barely anything from our own shores.  This made no sense.. Australia is such an entrepreneurial country that does business like no other.. how could there be barely anything out there to get us on the right track and help us succeed?

Why Did I Make This Podcast?

I’ve created this podcast as a passion project as I know there’s a huge group of people out there lacking direction, feeling unfulfilled and demotivated.  After discovering a lack of content and personally reaching out to a heap of successful entrepreneurs to access their knowledge I thought it would be selfish of me to keep it all to myself.  If I’m seeking answers I’m sure many others are too.  This isn’t another ‘motivational speaking’ or ‘life coach’ podcast.. this is a podcast that speaks to real people, in your backyard that have succeeded despite tall poppy syndrome, numerous setbacks and failures against the odds.

Why Should You Listen?

Lessons From Success lets you get to know our guests on a personal level so you can learn, relate and duplicate what’s made them successful.  Think of this podcast as your personal mentor bringing you close to people that are otherwise hard to get close to.  I know your time is extremely valuable and that’s why I’ve created each episode to take you on a journey from failures and hardships through to success and profits.  Regardless of your industry or career path Lessons From Success will offer you invaluable lessons to fast track whatever your journey may be.
