In this free flow, Karly asks how you can nurture your customers. How can you keep them engaged and interested in your products? How do you look after the people who have invested in you by buying your products in the first place?

And how an expensive household cleaning product, EKoWorx, wowed her with their post-sales Facebook ads. Once Karly had purchased the product, their facebook retargeting took her customer experience to whole new level - a genius method of keeping their customers engaged and interested… and buying more products.

In this free flow, Karly shares how she dealt with friction that sometimes can’t be avoided when collaborating with people. She speaks about what led her to go out on her own and what drives her to be a great boss.

Karly lets us know why it is important to stand firm with our decisions, speak up about it when we believe we are right and stop apologising for our feelings.

Resentment can build up when we accept things that aren’t okay but do nothing about it. It is better to address issues from the start so that we can look at the mirror and be proud of what looks back at us. We need to honour ourselves, first.

Another real, raw and a little bit ranty conversation.

In this free flow, Karly shares the reasoning behind postponing the launch of the 2018 Mastermind intake.

Karly shares how important it is to listen to your gut. When it tells you to stop. STOP. When it tells you that something you’re doing is not serving you anymore... leave it behind.

And with that, the mastermind will be launching in February 2018.

Lisa Orkin or Dorkin Orkin, as some call her (probably, herself) has been mixing comedy, story, and marketing for over 20 years. She has created award winning commercials with the Radio Ranch and award winning Indie films with the likes of Adam Mckay and Shira Piven. She’s a comedian, actor, writer, podcaster, audio director and a veteran solo artist, and storyteller.

Lisa has lots of crazy good ideas and she can write comedy dialogue like no one’s business, has a special super power to tell a story with a beginning, middle and end in under 60 seconds (check out her instagram feed), is a snazzy dresser and has a tailless cat named Violet. But she’s not superhuman after all. She admits she’s a terrible smoothie maker, can’t draw, organize a drawer or park and drive like a grandma. She hates spreadsheets and coloring in the lines.

She can be present at your luncheon, yoga studio, living room or little or big business conference to tell you funny stories, teach you how to use comedy in marketing, how to get comfy on camera, in public or on a date. She has done all these things quite a bunch and like it and they like her and she has been known to bring special guests.

She’s having a career change and not sure how it will go, but it will definitely involve doing comedy and having women’s parties across America. Where mixture of laughter, cries, sharing and learning to take leaps. She has this awesome idea of mixing comedy and helping people brainstorm creative ideas for marketing and branding and anything streaming.

Using her degree in Visual Communications, Kathy Wong initially made her mark in the field of design branding, marketing and publications.

After retiring for ten years, she became a social entrepreneur - making a difference to poverty stricken children through her business Moeloco, which means “dream crazy”. Moeloco designs and manufactures rubber flip flops that leave positive messages in the sand like “I am Peace”, “Because I’m Happy”, and “Be Grateful”. For every pair of flip flops sold, Moeloco donates a pair of canvas shoes to a child in need - protecting them from injury and illness, and allowing them to attend school.

Kathy’s vision for a “dream crazy” world is one where profits from product sales are used to give back to the community, and help those who really need it.

In this free flow convo, Karly hits the beach and shares her thoughts on what she's truly afraid of. And guess what? It's a fear most of us suffer from... The fear of rejection.

Sep 20, 2017
Scott grew up suffering my from depression, low self esteem and insecurity after his parents divorced when he was 6. He felt inferior to the other kids whose parents were still together, and always compared himself to others finding any reason to make another person better than him.
He didn't know how to make himself feel good and felt as if he didn't have positive role models in his life. 
In high school and university he suffered from anxiety, stress and pressure. In particular social anxiety where he was constantly feeling shy, awkward, uncomfortable, unconfident, and fearing rejection. 
After completing his degree in Exercise Science at Wollongong University, he found himself emotionally trapped in running his first gym. Not knowing how to get out or find genuine help he ended up with severe depression as the business didn't work out how he imagined it would. 
He lacked emotional intelligence, business skills, communication skills and basic life skills. From there he started his journey to find help. Psychologist/ psychiatrists/ life coaches/ nlp practitioners/ reiki coaches , you name it no one could get him emotionally get him to where he wanted to be, and this led him to feeling frustrated, helpless and hopeless.
From there he started partying a lot. He would party for days. It was the only way he knew how to feel confident, happy and relaxed. But, he paid the price dealing with the come downs and numbing himself to life.
He then attempted to work and train all week at his gym. Needless to say, he suffered, his business suffered, his clients suffered, and eventually he ended up leaving the lot as his ego had the better of him and his addictions took over his life.
He moved interstate and then overseas, only having to be flown home not long after by his family after being rushed to hospital in an ambulance suffering severe panic attacks. He was emotionally more out of control than ever. 
After returning home to Australia he decided he needed help. He was in and out hospitals seeing more doctors/psychs/counsellors no one could help him. He was lost. 
He was now at a point in his life where he had to face up to facts. 
He had an unresolved court case in Victoria where he flew down on his own accord to hand himself in and have his court date re set, only to be arrested and jailed for 18 months for drugs charges. He had finally hit his rock bottom. 
He felt incredible amounts of guilt for what he had put his family and friends through over the past 5 years. 
He was scared, intimidated and fearful for his life, not knowing what to expect. It was the first time in his life, he was all alone. He had to think for himself to survive. 
At this point he realised he didn't know how his mind worked, he didn't know who he was or what his purpose in life was meant to be.
At this point he found a spiritual teacher in there. She teaches small business courses but teaches more about life and life skills to those who would listen.
His way of thinking had led him to that place, he didn't want to be there, and he didn't want to go back, so he listened and implemented everything she taught him. She helped him realise that there is no difference between being in jail emotionally and being in jail in reality. If he wanted to free him himself of jail he needed to learn how to do it emotionally first. 
At this point Scott created a method that he uses today, that switches off and releases negative emotions out your body. He was amazed how powerful it was and how quickly it worked. 
He showed his teacher the method, it worked for her too! She said Scotty your onto something very powerful here you need to get it out there and help people with this, the world we live in needs a lot of healing and more healers like you. 
So from that day Scott realised his life's purpose is to get his method out there and help people. 
Scott has been out for 4 years now. In that time he has set up a business and helped many people with mental health and emotional issues, relationship issues, performance coaching for athletes, body and wellbeing transformations, the lot!
Scott has a degree in Exercise Science, cert 3 & 4 in Fitness and Personal Training, is a qualified reiki practitioner and has his cert 4 in Training & Assessment. 
Scott has helped emotionally transform the lives of hundreds of people in The Sutherland Shire, and Australia wide, in his 1 on 1 private consultations, workshops, seminars and retreats. 
He has been a presenter at Seminars & Workshops on his area of expertise for the following:
-Men's Mental Health & Wellbeing at Orana Hub Coastal Caringbah in 2015 
-Cyber Bullying at Concord Library 2015
-Mental Health & Wellbeing Workshop at Tradies Gymea in The Sutherland Shire 2016
-CPC Psychic Expo at WIN Stadium in Wollongong 2016 
-Psychic Expo at Sutherland Serviceman's Club 2016 
Scott believes in leading by example because actions speak louder than words. He says to have credibility in the eye of another, you must possess the qualities that those who follow want for themselves. He follows this by stating if a teacher does their job properly, the student will overtake the teacher and take the learnings to the next level. 
Scott's goals that he has achieved since hitting rock bottom in jail are inspiring. He symbolises motivation, inspiration, overcoming adversity and leadership.
