Alicia Cramer's family owned a dairy farm. A dairy farmer's life is hardening and its general mantra is "Hard work." So despite always dreaming of working for herself, it is no surprise that Alicia's journey to success was both hard work and hard. An interesting contradiction, when working for herself was an ambition of admiration and freedom. And yet hindered by the adopted conditioning from the life of a young farm hand.
By 22, Alicia had 2 businesses under her belt. Obsessed with succeeding she worked 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. Only to find those businesses slip away regardless of her investment.
Alicia still held onto her desire to have her own business but had to face the reality that she was creating a chasm of difficulty between her and her success.
At 25 she tried again, focusing on her passion for Emotional Freedom Techniques. Achieving some success, but like many, didn't have the expertise in building a successful business. Around the age of 28, Alicia had additional incentive to really commit to her success, which led her into Hypnotherapy Training.
She is now the go-to Hypnotherapist and Mindset Expert for Entrepreneurs, an International Best Selling Author, Public Speaker and has been an Expert Panelist on a TV Show for 2 Seasons.
Her expertise now focuses on Mindset Reconditioning to overcome blocks to success in business and life.
Alicia and I discuss how much smaller the critical gaps in business have become but are under-utilised, new forms of possible business infrastructure, being trapped by what we have become accustomed to, breaking out of those restraints to consider what success alternatives could lead to, how recycling the old stagnates growth, how to not waste a crisis and make it your greatest opportunity and how all of this can then be applied to our own personal development or progress.
If you aren't willing to face your challenges, you probably aren't willing to look at your opportunities.

It was an honour to share my story with a platform so invested in the improvement of others' lives, health and happiness. Our conversation covered everything from my journey as an Entrepreneur to my goals and motivations. And the best investment I’ve ever made.
Julie has had quite a tumultuous journey through life. But as all great people do, she turned that turbulence into something worthwhile for herself and for others. Julie teaches women how to discover what they can do and then make something of those skills. Working outside of traditional formulas and their own expectation of self.
This is what made my conversation with Julie all that more interesting, focused on a more belief system foundation and how I apply that belief system to the way I work and build my company as an example to others looking to do the same.
I thoroughly enjoyed Julie and the energy she bought to this interview. And contributing to an interview from a different perspective than usual. Julie has served on numerous non-profit boards and was named Woman of the Year by the Professional Women’s Network of the Monterey Peninsula in 2013.

Being afraid to learn our own value is our biggest obstacle. But if we don't start doing anything we will never learn how. If we are all just looking to be heard, what is stopping us from listening to ourselves?
Tiffany made this an interesting conversation, I could barely keep up with everything I wanted to say.

Jeff Mendelson believes in paying it forward. Sharing experiences and perspectives from People, with People. In the hopes that something we hear on his Podcast, may be that exact piece of gold we’ve been looking for.
His One Big Tip Podcast is all about bringing those big ideas to a broader audience.
My conversation with him moved into a more Personal Coaching and Development arena, rather than the usual Business framework perspective. Covering the ideas, that if we are waiting for the perfect moment, we risk not succeeding at all.
That there is gold to be found in assessing our routines and habits, and the results. How our comfort zones only depict a portion of what we have the potential to achieve. And how life is all about perspective and choice. How we have the freedom to chase our dreams despite society telling us how we should be or what is expected of us. Letting go of our limitations to build the life and success we desire.
“Sometimes, you need to be willing to burn down every idea of what you think success looks like, to give you the space to create the life your dreams.”

Dave Lukas’ line Release Your Inner Misfit speaks to me on so many levels. His focus on non traditional methods for achieving Success. Sounds like my life, laughs. As I am sure it resonates with so many others. Essentially Dave’s idea of a Misfit, is your X factor. The thing that makes you so uniquely you. What makes you stand out from the crowd. And how by harnessing and following that thread of individuality. We reach new heights of achievement. The kinds of achievements that speak so throughly to who we are, what matters to us and our goals.
Dave is a celebrated and extremely accomplished Entrepreneur. He endeavours to leave a trail of insights to life for his young daughter. Which is the kind of noble cause that inspires something just like Misfit Entrepreneur, to take on a life of its own. Becoming a greater platform than even he originally anticipated.
So whether you are an Entrepreneur or an In-trepreneur. I encourage you to lead with your inner Misfit!! Embrace your X factor. Be prepared though, for all the places it will take you.
Following this thread, Dave and I discussed how to mold Business into your very own Diamond! Which is right up my ally!

Dave asks each of his Guests to highlight a Misfit 3. What came out of this Episode were these. Always remember;
1. The point right when you are about to give up, is where the magic happens. Don’t give up.
2. Be your own Hero.
3. Be the novice. But do not assume everyone already knows what you know.
