The Power Of Podcasting - with Jason Graystone

From a personal perspective, in a world where technology has opened up endless opportunities for self-expression and connection, podcasting has emerged as a powerful uncensored platform for people to share their voices, ideas, and stories. For me, podcasting has become more than just a hobby or a means of entertainment; it has been a transformative experience that has allowed me to create, collaborate, and be a part of something bigger than I ever imagined. One of the most magical aspects of podcasting is the opportunity to collaborate with people from all walks of life. I have had the privilege of interviewing fascinating individuals, experts in their fields, and everyday people with extraordinary stories to tell. Relationships are the highest form of currency in my world. In this episode, my friend and previous podcast guest Jason Greystone returns, as we share our mutual love for podcasting and how it has enriched both our lives in so many unexpected ways.

Is Freedom Of Speech Dead? - with Kym Staton

In this episode, we delve into the importance of freeing Julian Assange and the powerful documentary film that sheds light on his story. We explore the psychological torture that Assange has endured and emphasise the urgent need for public awareness and activism. The film 'Trust Fall' features renowned celebrity advocates such as Roger Waters, MIA, Susan Sarandon, and Tom Morello, who lend their voices to the cause. This week I’m on a mission with Kym Staton, the director of the documentary film 'Trust Fall'. In our interview, we delve into the challenges faced during the making of the film and the significance of press freedom. We discuss the need for urgent global action to protect truth and transparency, highlighting the critical role that Assange's case plays in safeguarding journalism and free speech. Julian’s courage in bringing to light US war crimes has seen him spend five years in a maximum security prison with a far worse punishment awaiting him if he gets extradited to the US. Every journalist or content creator needs to get behind this. Freedom of speech is under attack!

Living Proof, The System Is F**ked - with Matt Embry

A journey both personal and political, Matt Embry's is an award-winning documentary filmmaker on a mission to get some answers to a medical mystery. If no one knows the causes or cures for multiple sclerosis, then why are so many MS charities touting drugs (with considerable side effects) that don’t work in the long term? And why does the FDA drag its feet on approving promising non-pharmaceutical cures? And why won’t the powers that be in the MS establishment listen to the director himself, diagnosed with the disease over two decades ago, and who through only strict diet and exercise, remains healthy and surprisingly asymptomatic? These are the questions that Matt Embry has dedicated his life to finding out, the obvious answers lie buried in the bottom line of Big Pharma — a risky diagnosis to make. This interview is fascinating not only for anyone with an autoimmune disease, but for all of those who believe in living a life without limitations. The mindset, courage, and resilience that Matt has shown is inspiring millions of people across the world. Repeatedly faced with hardship and adversity, Matt speaks candidly about his rock bottom, the mental health challenges he’s faced and overcome, and how finding spirituality saved his life.

Matt Pink: The Better Life Guy

In this week's episode, I'm joined by Matt Pink, also known as The Better Life Guy. Matt is the bestselling author of the book called 'Better Me Better You'. He is a speaker, coach, and sober influencer, making a significant impact in the sober community through sharing his creative, funny, and direct approach to choosing sobriety. Like many of us, Matt Pink was immersed in the "work hard, play hard" lifestyle, prioritising ambition and partying over his own mental health. We talk candidly about how his relationship with alcohol deteriorated after the tragic death of his young son and how this led to him losing everything. The comeback started for him after a chance spiritual encounter. Initially sceptical, a meeting with a stranger (ironically in the pub!) led to Matt completely turning his life around. In this episode, it's not all about sobriety as we delve into other areas of wellness, self-development, and how hitting rock bottom can be the catalyst needed to find your true passion.

Surviving War and Human Trafficking: Lurata Lyon's Incredible Journey - Part 1

Prepare for a powerful, and shocking story this time as I am joined by Lurata Lyon to discuss her incredible story of survival and resilience. Lurata shares her experiences of being kidnapped and abused during a war in former Yugoslavia, and how she managed to escape certain death. Despite the trauma she endured, Lurata's story is one of inspiration and empowerment. She emphasises the importance of forgiveness and using pain as a catalyst for personal growth. Lurata's journey is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and serves as a reminder to draw strength from our own experiences. KEY TAKEAWAYS Lurata went through a traumatic experience but has healed and wants to inspire others to find strength and learn from their own pain. She now focusses on the importance of forgiveness, not only for others but also for oneself. Having faced negativity and trolling on the internet you’d expect Lurata to feel like giving up, but she remains true to herself and encourages others to be open-minded and do their own research before making assumptions. Lurata's childhood was filled with love and happiness, but she experienced the horrors of war and had to escape for her own safety. Survival was a result of a combination of luck, the bravery of her uncle, and the intervention of two American police officers who provided her with shelter and support. BEST MOMENTS I didn't want anyone to know who I was, what I was, what I've been through. So 20 years of silence."  "I was so young and I was so innocent. I was just a teenager. The fact that we survived, nobody questions why we didn't get killed."  "I just I need to go to the Red Cross because you know I explained the situation and they said no she can't go to the Red Cross we we can give her shelter in our apartment for now." "They were my family, they were everything for me. I mean, we see Superman on movies and we think that's how heroes should be, wearing a cape or Spider-Man and this and that. We don't have to have special powers." VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/EllieMckay  Lurata Lyon - https://www.luratalyon.com/

Unlocking the Future: Insights from Daniel Priestley on AI, Marketing, and Leadership

This week I am joined once more by the one and only Daniel Priestley, to discuss the impact of AI technology and blockchain on various industries. They reflect on the rapid advancements in AI technology, particularly the emergence of generative AI and its potential to transform businesses and professions. Daniel shares insights on how AI is revolutionising fields such as law, medicine, and even entrepreneurship. They emphasise the importance of AI awareness for careers advisors and highlight the need for individuals to adapt and integrate AI into their lives. The conversation also delves into the power of AI in influencing consumer behaviour and enhancing productivity for creators, looking at the significance of sweating the small stuff at different stages of the entrepreneurial journey and the importance of adapting to the changing landscape of technology. KEY TAKEAWAYS The advancement of AI technology, particularly in the form of generative AI, has the potential to significantly impact various industries and professions. AI has two superpowers: the ability to get people to consume more than they intended and the ability to help people create more than they could on their own. The future of AI will bring about a two-speed economy, with superstar creators who can leverage AI to create at an unprecedented scale and consumers who may be overwhelmed by AI-driven consumption. The key to success in the AI-driven future is to adapt and integrate AI into one's business or career, as it has the potential to revolutionise various aspects of society. The world is on the brink of a major transformation, and while it may be daunting, embracing and surfing the waves of change can lead to exciting opportunities and growth. BEST MOMENTS "AI has two superpowers. Superpower number one is the ability to get you to consume more than you thought you wanted to consume." "The most important thing is that if you're doing it, do it for the right reasons." "The trick is testing a few different offers to see what is it they want that's different to the content, that's valuable." "The brain loves things of will I, won't I? The brain loves to get excited about things that may or may not happen." "The bottom billion people on the economic ladder are probably going to have a massive uplift. So every child will have access to the world's best tutoring program with AI."

Three Ways To Become A Millionaire In Six Months - with Dragons' Den Superstar Genius Steven Bartlett

Get ready for an epic episode as I dive into a captivating conversation with the extraordinary Steven Bartlett, renowned for his role in Dragon’s Den and The Diary Of A CEO. Join me on a journey through Steven's life, from overcoming a tough childhood to achieving entrepreneurial triumph and hosting an impactful podcast. Together, we explore the keys to success, navigating belief systems, and the relentless pursuit of happiness. In this introspective chat, Steven reveals profound insights about managing expectations, cautioning against the pitfalls of chasing external success markers. We delve into the power of curiosity, the transformative value of meaningful struggle, and the paramount importance of maintaining unwavering trust with our audience. Don't miss this superstar episode packed with wisdom and inspiration! KEY TAKEAWAYS Beliefs are formed based on evidence and can be changed by accumulating new evidence. Happiness is often determined by the fulfilment of expectations, and managing expectations is crucial for maintaining happiness. Success and wealth do not guarantee happiness, and the pursuit of material possessions can lead to dissatisfaction. Building meaningful relationships and surrounding oneself with trusted friends and family is more important than acquiring wealth or fame. Sweating the small stuff and paying attention to details can contribute to success and excellence in various areas of life. BEST MOMENTS "The most compelling beliefs in the world are those that come from your own senses." "Expectations are the controllable element of all of our happiness." "You're letting people down. But the person I don't want to let down is the tens of millions that tune in." "I don't have new friends. Like it's part of what I said earlier about, I meet all these incredible celebrities and all this stuff on the podcast and then I get invited to come to this movie premiere and walk the red carpet. No, thank you." VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/EllieMckay  Steven Bartlett - https://stevenbartlett.com/

Ex-Special Forces Ollie Ollerton Reveals Everything About SBS

This week I’m rejoined with one of our favourite guests, former Special Forces soldier and TV personality, Ollie Ollerton, who gets more candid than ever before about the SBS, and its not what you think….. KEY TAKEAWAYS We should always back spirituality with science, especially in a world where scepticism is prevalent. Strict upbringings can shape discipline and resilience, but we must never let discipline go too far. Those with a rebellious nature will find conflict in a military career. In order to progress and grow, you need to recognise personal growth and develop your mindset You can achieve self-discovery and personal development through focussing on spirituality and visualisation techniques. We need to challenge societal programming and take control of one's own thoughts and actions in order to live a fulfilling and empowered life BEST MOMENTS "I was so lost as a kid. And I say a kid, I was still a kid when I was in the military. But I was so lost. I look back now and I just think that I'd love to have that opportunity again." "I think it's a bit dangerous when Alex Hormozi says, you know, I get up in bed, I look at my phone for an hour, I do this and the other. He is what I call a unconscious competent." "We are the program product of World War I and II. Your parents were programmed through those years. Absolute lack, rationing, all that kind of thing. That program has been passed on to you and to me."  "You imagine our first steps on this planet. We're never going to remember all the nice fruits that we ate. We're always going to remember the one bad berry that made us ill and could have killed us. So that is why we're addicted to the things that could go wrong."  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/EllieMckay  Ollie Ollerton - https://ollieollerton.com/

Ferne McCann On Overcoming Imposter Syndrome, Embracing Personal Growth, and Navigating the Challenges of Fame and Motherhood

For this very special 200th edition, I'm joined by reality TV mega star Ferne McCann, who opens up about the challenges of balancing motherhood and a successful career in the public eye. Ferne gets frank and honest about her journey to fame, how she manifested her dreams, and why her initial desire for celebrity status wasn't all it cracked up to be. We discuss what it was really like behind the scenes in reality TV shows "TOWIE," "I'm a Celebrity," and "SAS: Who Dares Wins," as we look at the impact of fame on mental health and Ferne's journey of self-discovery and personal growth. No stranger to controversy and media attention, Ferne candidly shares how she's used her own challenges to shape her new business venture, Shoorah, to help support mental health and wellbeing, knowing firsthand the impact it can have. Real, raw, and uncensored. An incredibly honest and vulnerable interview packed with value. 🩷 KEY TAKEAWAYS Being a mother and having a successful career is possible, but it requires flexibility and the ability to juggle multiple responsibilities. It is important to challenge societal boundaries and perceptions that suggest women cannot have it all. Self-belief and persistence are key in achieving one's goals and manifesting one's desires. Going through tough times and taking responsibility for one's actions can lead to personal growth and learning. Surrounding oneself with supportive and like-minded individuals is crucial for personal development and success BEST MOMENTS "I just always loved that celebrity culture and wanted to be in the limelight." "SAS was hands down harder than giving birth. It was hands down the hardest thing I have ever done." "I think having that responsibility, like you can't go through life having that victim mentality." "I just think if you can own something, that's the only way to move forward in my eyes." "When you don't drink, everything is heightened, like your colours, your conversations, they're more enriching because you are just in the moment."

Entrepreneurship Masterclass. How To Build A Multi-Million Dollar Business And Have People Lining Up To Do Business With You - with Daniel Priestley

This week I am joined by serial entrepreneur Daniel Priestley, for a rocket-fuelled journey through his life and entrepreneurial journey, in which he shares the story of his first business at the age of 10 to becoming a key person of influence in the business world. He discusses the importance of manufacturing demand and building a personal brand to attract opportunities, and also highlights the impact of his experiences in slums and his humanitarian goals, emphasising the need for businesses to make a positive impact in the world. KEY TAKEAWAYS Building a personal brand as a key person of influence is essential for success in business. It allows you to manufacture demand for your products or services and attract opportunities. Manufacturing demand is often overlooked in traditional education and business training. While many focus on creating value, it is equally important to learn how to generate demand for what you offer. Being a key person of influence involves more than just gaining attention. It requires having a well-thought-out business, a great product or service, and utilising your personal brand to form partnerships and run effective campaigns. The power of being a key person of influence lies in the ability to curate opportunities and have demand exceed supply. This leads to profitability and success in business. BEST MOMENTS "Once you become a key person of influence, you're just an opportunity magnet at that point. And it's very hard to fail." "Most of the richest people on the planet, they break all the rules in business school. But the one rule they never break is that they always have demand exceeding supply." "A key person of influence is someone who is using their personal brand power their business. They've got a well thought through business, they've got a great product, they've got a great service." "If I want to jump on a plane, there are planes available. Just the idea of I went to school and some taxpayer paid for my schooling. I grew up in a system where taxes get paid and if you want to go to school, you're in a nice school."

The People’s Champion, Jordan Reynolds

This week, I'm joined by Jordan Reynolds, a professional boxer with an impressive record of seven wins in seven fights. We explore his journey from a troubled youth to finding solace and belonging in the boxing gym. He candidly discusses the challenges he faced, both inside and outside the ring, and how he used discipline and determination to overcome them. We delve into the world of boxing, examining the differences between amateur and professional fights, various boxing styles of different nations, and the importance of mindset and resilience in the sport. Jordan also opens up about his difficult upbringing, the trauma he experienced, and his desire to create a loving and supportive family environment. The discussion focuses on personal growth, spiritual practices, and why it’s vital to give back to the community. TAKEAWAYS Jordan recognised his potential in boxing early on, even with limited experience. His determination and grit were evident in his amateur fights, where he faced opponents with far more experience and still performed well. You should always take your career seriously from the start. Jordan focussed on his diet, nutrition, and overall fitness, and was influenced by the professional boxers he trained with and aimed to emulate their dedication and commitment to their craft. You’ll always encounter scepticism and negativity from some people who feel threatened by your ambition and drive. However, with a strong support system, you’ll always overcome the doubters. In addition to his boxing career, Jordan has embraced various practices and experiences to enhance his personal growth and well-being. These include exploring spirituality, engaging in breathwork and meditation, and even participating in ceremonies involving ancient medicines like mushrooms. Jordan’s openness to different practices reflects his desire to continually improve himself and find balance in his life. BEST MOMENTS "People want you to do well, but not better than them."

Homelessness to Billion Dollar Businessman - The Meteoric Rise of Dean Forbes

This week, I'm on a mission with the inspirational Dean Forbes. Dean, a successful entrepreneur and businessman, candidly shares his journey from experiencing homelessness twice to achieving billion-dollar exits in business. We discuss the lessons from Dean's upbringing and how the strength and resilience of his mother, who provided a loving and stable childhood despite challenging circumstances, helped shape the man he is today. The path to success hasn’t been easy—from being dropped as a professional footballer to working in a call centre. Dean walks us through his journey, giving a rare insight into the behind-the-scenes challenges. Dean opens up about the lessons he learned regarding money, the challenges of managing wealth, and the profound and often negative impact it has had on his relationships. An incredible episode laced with golden nuggets for all those destined for more. KEY TAKEAWAYS Dean's mother played a crucial role in providing a stable and loving environment for him and his brothers, despite their economic hardships. Her unwavering belief in their potential and emphasis on education set the foundation for their success. Self awareness allows us to pivot and explore other opportunities that align better with our skills and interests. Rather than focusing on long-term, lofty goals, Dean's approach has been to focus on the next step or the next room. This allows for regular positive reinforcement and a sense of accomplishment along the way. While achieving financial success can be life-changing, it also comes with its own set of challenges. Dean experienced the need to navigate tax implications, manage relationships with friends and family, and find a balance between enjoying the fruits of his labour and maintaining financial responsibility BEST MOMENTS "I turned into an idiot. If it was highly desirable and very expensive and somebody had mentioned it at some point in life, I wanted to buy it!" "So I went to where my mom was living. I took out the paperwork. I explained to her what had happened. And I was explaining to her the amount of money involved. And she was hysterical. She's crying. We're hugging, we're having this amazing moment." " I see people, fortunate, you know, in my situation, fearful of that and motivated out of fear” "People have said to me that I've changed, I don't think I have, but I always say sometimes to those people, well, I don't know, you never used to ask me for a quarter of a million pounds!"

Single Amputee, Lee Spencer, Defines All The Odds To Become A World Record Holder

In this week's episode of the On a Mission podcast, get ready to be inspired as we unravel the gripping journey of Lee Spencer, a man born in Dagenham, refined in the fires of The Royal Marines, and tested by a fate that few could imagine. A Royal Marine with 24 years of service, Lee navigated three operational tours in Afghanistan unscathed. Now, fast forward to a roadside in Surrey where Lee's life takes an abrupt turn. A crash, an engine block, and the loss of his right leg – a stark reminder that life's curveballs don't discriminate. But this isn't just a tale of tragedy; it's a saga of resilience. In the aftermath, Lee's Marine instincts kick in, turning a chaotic scene into a battle for survival. Imagine the grit it takes to instruct bystanders while your own life hangs in the balance. A medically induced coma, weeks in the hospital, and a gruelling rehabilitation journey follow, painting a vivid canvas of pain, recovery, and an uncertain future. Amidst the struggle, Lee's spirit refuses to be broken. Nominated for the Pride of Britain award in 2014, he sets sail on a new horizon in 2015. Joining the Row2Recovery team, Lee embarks on a monumental row across the Atlantic – 3,000 miles, four veterans, and only three legs between them. The outcome? A record-breaking triumph that etches their names in history as the world's first physically disabled crew of four to conquer an ocean. But Lee's journey doesn't end there. In a solo and unsupported venture, he defies the odds again, rowing from mainland Europe to mainland South America. Four Guinness World Records later, Lee Spencer, The Rowing Marine, stands as a living testament to the sheer force of human resilience. In this On a Mission podcast episode, be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions – the pain, the triumphs, and the unfiltered reality of a man who turned adversity into a relentless pursuit of purpose. Lee's story is not just his own; it's a mirror reflecting the indomitable spirit within us all. This is an episode that goes beyond inspiration; it's a raw and real testament to the strength that resides in the human soul.

The Secret To Making Money Online - with Lisa Johnson

Welcome back to The On a Mission Podcast, where we are thrilled to be rejoined by Lisa Johnson, The Queen of Passive Income, returning for round two. In the pursuit of financial freedom, Lisa stands as a beacon of authenticity amidst a landscape often clouded by scams and deceit. An award-winning business strategist, she guides individuals in crafting passive and semi-passive income streams, turning business dreams into reality. Lisa's journey from £30,000 in debt to multi seven-figure profits in under four years is a testament to her expertise. In this episode, Lisa cuts through the usual fluff, offering a candid perspective on the coaching industry. She actively works towards reform, aiming to eliminate unqualified individuals exploiting those seeking a better life. With recent legal victories affirming her stance against slander and bullying, Lisa brings a refreshing honesty to the conversation. But this episode goes beyond financial success. We explore all aspects of life and success from spirituality, health, balance, and societal challenges like the lost ability to respectfully disagree without animosity. We also discuss a pivotal moment in Lisa's life when she made a surprising decision regarding an invitation to Necker Island with Richard Branson and why life isn’t always as it seems on social media. It’s real, it’s raw and it’s definitely unfiltered. You’re not going to want to miss this one! KEY TAKEAWAYS It’s crucial to prioritise your own values and well-being over conforming to societal expectations of success. Lisa recognises that true success for her is spending quality time with loved ones and engaging in activities that bring her joy. Just because someone can charge exorbitant amounts for their services, it doesn't mean they should. Lisa advocates for fair pricing that allows accessibility to all individuals, regardless of their financial situation. Lisa conducted an experiment to prove that sales tactics and manipulation are not necessary for successful launches. She stripped away fear of missing out (FOMO) marketing, trauma tactics, and other manipulative strategies and still achieved a successful launch, demonstrating that authenticity and transparency can be effective in selling products or services. If using a bonus to entice customers, Lisa encourages the practice of offering a money-back guarantee within a certain timeframe to provide an exit option for those who may have made impulsive decisions based on FOMO. BEST MOMENTS "I believe the online space will kill itself if we're not careful, because there's so many dodgy things going on." "Just because you're good at marketing and being an influencer online doesn't mean that you can just sell fluff and air." "I wanted to prove to people that you can make a lot of money and not use any of these tactics." "The best times in my life aren't when I'm on a stage or saying how amazing it is that I have a Sunday Times bestseller. They're when I'm with my mates and when I'm with my family, just doing really normal things."

Men's Mental Health and the Power of Vulnerability with Taylor James

This week, we are on a mission with Taylor James for some real, frank, and honest discussions about the importance of open conversations surrounding mental health. We get brutally honest about our own experiences with mental health and the unspoken challenges people face when they reach out for support to no avail. The societal pressure we face to appear "put together" is real. In this week's episode, we discuss how to avoid the very real danger of comparing ourselves to others and the constant need for validation that we've been programmed to chase. Taylor's story is laced with tragedy, resilience, and inspiration. Now an award-winning podcaster, he uses his platform as a much-needed force for positivity. KEY TAKEAWAYS It's essential to have a support network that truly listens and validates your feelings. Taylor highlights the importance of finding the right people to talk to, as not everyone will provide the support needed. Sometimes, seeking help from professionals or helplines like Samaritans can be more beneficial. Comparing oneself to others and seeking validation from external sources can be detrimental to mental health. Taylor encourages individuals to focus on their own journey and give themselves what they need, rather than trying to impress or conform to societal expectations. Unsolicited advice can be unhelpful and even harmful. Sometimes, simply having someone listen without judgment can make a significant difference. Transparency and honesty about mental health struggles can be challenging, especially when one is seen as an advocate for positive mental health. BEST MOMENTS "I'm so tired of this kind of generation of thinking, like we have to impress people. I'm going to do what I need to do that makes me feel better." "I don't need to be told what to do. I just need to be told that in some shape or form I'm gonna be okay and what I'm feeling right now isn't going to last forever." "If you've not had any experience of mental health or been as far as to have those extreme dark thoughts, perhaps you might not have thought about it in that way." "I just don't want to be part of that. I think it's almost a bit of a toxic culture" VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Taylor James - h https://uk.linkedin.com/in/taylorpattinson?trk=public_post_feed-actor-name ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities. Fast forward to today, and life looks very different. Ellie committed to turning her life around for herself and her family. Following this commitment, she got to work and has now built multiple successful companies, as well as having created a multimillion-pound property portfolio from a standing start.

The Hard Road Will Take You Home with Anthony 'Staz' Stazicker

This week, I am on a mission with ThruDark Co-founder, distinguished Special Forces Operator, and star of the hit series SAS: Who Dares Wins, Anthony 'Staz' Stazicker. With an impressive 13 years of distinguished and decorated military service, within the Special Forces and as a highly experienced Chief Sniper Instructor, Staz comes with some phenomenal stories to tell for anyone who wants to succeed and thrive under pressure. From being awarded the Afghanistan campaign medal, Queen's diamond jubilee medal, and the illustrious Conspicuous Gallantry Cross to navigating the uncharted territory of civilian life again, Staz has defeated the odds at every step of the way. Now the co-founder of a multimillion-pound clothing company, ThruDark, Staz tells us how the hard lessons he learned from the military have been applied to the business world, which has undoubtedly put them on the global stage as the "go-to" technical clothing company. Incredible stories. Incredible inspiration. Incredible interview live now on the On a Mission podcast 🔥 KEY TAKEAWAYS A knee injury derailed his football aspirations, leading to multiple surgeries and ultimately preventing him from playing in the university league. But resilience kicked in, and he became determined to overcome and succeed. Despite setbacks, Staz's determination allowed him to find new opportunities and pursue other passions. Staz credits his grandparents for their unwavering support and sacrifice in raising him and his brother after the loss of their mother. There’s no support like that of those who love you. Staz’s ability to channel his anger and use it as a driving force has been both a strength and a challenge throughout his life, fuelling his success but also requiring him to navigate the fine line between aggression and control. BEST MOMENTS "Never judge a book by its cover and never judge a name by its name." "I've never struggled with ego, you know, and ego has got its place. And when it's channelled in the right way, we need ego." "I remember being handed stacks of cards from these scouts or coaches from these universities and it was like, 'Look, we're looking for kids with your kind of skills to come in on a full scholarship.'" "At 17, 18 years old, a year seems like a lifetime."

Sadie Frost On The 90s, Dracula and Turning Her Back On Hollywood

She was a part of the Primrose Hill set, married to Jude Law, and friends with Kate Moss. The action-packed life of actress/producer/fashion designer Sadie Frost from the heady days of the nineties through 30 years in the entertainment industry, navigating media scandals, phone hacking, and a highly publicised divorce. On this week's episode of the On a Mission podcast, Sadie shares the lessons she's learned from 30 years in the entertainment industry and how she has built the strength and emotional resilience to pursue a life that's true to who she really is. Now, 30 years after her first starring role in Hollywood blockbuster Francis Ford Coppola’s vampire classic, she is back on the big screen, taking the world by storm as a director and filmmaker. But it’s been an incredible journey of self-discovery getting to this point. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sadie had a diverse upbringing, growing up in a hippie environment and being exposed to alternative practices such as yoga, meditation, and holistic healing from a young age. It was Sadie’s raw ambition and drive to succeed in the entertainment industry which led to a scholarship at Italia Conti and a career in acting and modelling. Sadie definitely experienced the negative effects of fame and media scrutiny, including phone hacking and sensationalised stories, which impacted her mental health and relationships. We as a society of fame-watchers, must do better. Always focus on the importance of kindness, understanding, and support for those struggling with mental health issues, as well as the need to challenge societal norms and stereotypes. Sadie’s journey towards wellness and self-care includes practices such as meditation, breathwork, grounding, and the companionship of a pet, which have helped her navigate challenges and find peace of mind BEST MOMENTS "People just need to be thoughtful of how someone else is feeling and support people that are struggling." "I think the press like to kind of manufacture, they like to kind of create a kind of persona about people and things. Something would be written and it would be manipulated and changed." "I did get stronger, but I do resent the fact that I lost that time sometimes with the children and I couldn't have the normal things that you want to do with your kids." - Interviewee "You could very easily get a picture of someone blinking and say they're drunk!"

How To Create Lasting Change In Your Life - with Kirk Miller

This week's guest, Kirk Miller, has been featured on the cover of Men's Fitness more times than any other man in the UK. He has been at the top of the fitness model game for over a decade and is a world-renowned fitness expert. However, behind the scenes, his life hasn't always been as it appeared. In a society that often places importance on external measures of success, Kirk found himself caught up in the pursuit of validation and achievements. This conversation delves much deeper than just physical fitness and serves as a powerful reminder that our self-worth should not be tied to what we do or how we look. Kirk experienced this firsthand when his promising football career came crashing down, bringing with it a life as he knew it! Through moments of honest introspection, Kirk discusses the impact that his misplaced priorities had on his self-confidence, the impact of turning to destructive behaviours as a way of masking the pain, and what it really took for him to start living a life with purpose. KEY TAKEAWAYS Building confidence comes from keeping promises to yourself and following through on what you say you will do. This builds trust and reliability within yourself. Upbringing and background can shape our beliefs and perspectives on travel, commitment, and success. It's important to challenge and evolve these beliefs to reach our full potential. External appearances can be deceiving. Just because someone looks successful or happy on the outside doesn't mean they are internally fulfilled. True happiness and fulfilment come from living with purpose and aligning our actions with our values. Negative emotions and feelings of being off-track can be cues for change. Instead of viewing them as negative, we can see them as opportunities for growth and self-reflection. They can indicate that we need to re-evaluate our actions, relationships, and alignment with our highest values. BEST MOMENTS "Nothing builds confidence more than keeping your promises to yourself." "If you're not happy with what you do, who you are, the relationships you're in, that will show up at some point." "Everyone's got their flaws. No one's got their shit together." "When you're experiencing a negative emotion longer than you want to, that's a cue that something needs to change."

From Stock Market to Drug Trafficking: with Shaun Attwood

The mind-blowing and often hilarious story of a young lad from Widnes and his transition from the stocks trade to the drugs trade, rubbing shoulders with Mexican cartels, the mafia, and neo-Nazis within one of the most challenging prisons in the United States? This is the journey that Shaun Attwood ended up on as he rose to become an ecstasy kingpin with a substantial drug trafficking empire in Arizona. Shaun shares stories of how he went from being a reportable trader to wild parties, encounters with some of the world’s most dangerous individuals, and the challenges he faced along the way. Facing a sentence of up to 200 years, Shaun was locked up alongside some of the most intimidating inmates imaginable. Somehow, through strategic alliances, quick thinking, and his distinctive English accent, Shaun emerged on the other side with a remarkable story to share, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Somehow Shaun emerged on the other side unscathed and with a remarkable story to share. Today, Shaun is a successful YouTuber, Podcaster, and Author, utilising his platform to share his experiences and advocate against the perils of drugs and crime. KEY TAKEAWAYS Shaun has had experiences with guests who were initially low energy during the podcast but became more animated and shared interesting stories once the recording stopped. This is why it’s so vital to establish a comfortable and relaxed environment for guests to open up and share their experiences. Even individuals who may be perceived as fearless or tough can still feel vulnerable and anxious in certain situations. The lure of fast money and excitement can lead individuals down a dangerous path. Shaun’s own story is a textbook example of how following the allure of cash can take us to the darkest places on earth. We need to remember the risks associated with getting involved in illegal activities. There are always dangers when associating with dangerous individuals and engaging in criminal behaviour. They can lead to experiences that scar our psyches forever. There is definitely a negative side to being in the public eye and it’s crucial to remain resilient and focused on one's goals despite facing adversity BEST MOMENTS "I nearly got shot. They're the local crack dealers. I'm letting them stay in mine. I'm staying at theirs over the street." "I've done TED talks and one of them is like what facing 200 years taught me about happiness and I've learned that happiness is in your heart." "I've had pushback from various reasons. The first lot of pushback were death threats." - "He accused my guy of stolen valour because this guy was an ex-Vietnam vet and a biker."

Finding Peace Amidst The Chaos - with Billy Farrell

We are joined once more by the fabulous Billy Farrell to discuss the importance of being authentic and real in business. As always, we have an unfiltered and honest conversation about the realities of entrepreneurship without any of the fluff as Billy shares that just a few months ago, one of his businesses was struggling to make payroll before they turned it round at the eleventh hour.  This transformation serves as a testament to the importance of authenticity and being real in business. Billy emphasises the need to have honest conversations about the realities of entrepreneurship, without sugarcoating or hiding the struggles that come with it. The discussion also touches upon Billy's recent diagnosis of neurodivergence and how this newfound understanding of his unique way of thinking has contributed to his self-awareness, acceptance, and personal growth. This revelation has allowed him to embrace his differences and use them as strengths in his entrepreneurial journey.   We delve into the topic of mental health and how it can be affected when faced with challenging situations. Billy shares his own experiences of dealing with difficult times and emphasises the importance of harnessing the pain and learning from life's challenges. Ultimately we are all looking to find peace amidst the chaos! KEY TAKEAWAYS Embracing your uniqueness: Billy discusses how he has always felt different and never fit in with social groups. However, he has learned to embrace his uniqueness and see it as a strength rather than a weakness. There is great value in understanding the importance of accepting conditions as part of who you are, rather than using them as excuses or crutches. Billy highlights the importance of going through challenges and coming out the other side stronger and more resilient. He believes that facing and overcoming difficulties builds a thicker skin and prepares individuals for bigger opportunities and risks in the future. Past victories and future aspirations are important, but the present moment is where true peace and happiness can be found. BEST MOMENTS "So I've not had to stamp a label of bipolar" "I'm all for learning more about myself, not so that I can have anything as a crutch, but so that I can go, cool, do you know what? If this is me, then I'm going to learn everything I can about this."  "It's about being more you. It's about actually not fighting against the things that actually make you feel safe and allow you to thrive." "The more life lessons you go through, the more challenges you go through, as much as we don't necessarily enjoy them. You develop a thicker skin. Some people can become bitter, resentful, hateful and get, you know, just pissed off at the world and life. But there's another way of doing it."  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Billy Farrell LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/billyfarrell/?originalSubdomain=uk Billy Farrell Instagram - https://instagram.com/iambillyfarrell?utm_medium=copy_link Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  Website: http://www.elliemckay.com LinkedIn: Linkedin.com/in/ellie-mckay/ Facebook: Facebook.com/ellie.mckay.3150 Instagram: https://instagram.com/elliemckayofficial?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= OAM Instagram: https://instagram.com/onamissionshow?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= YouTube: https://youtube.com/@onamissionpodcast  Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

How To Unlock Lifelong Health – with Dale Pinnock

This week, I am on a mission with Dale Pinnock, a world-class nutrition expert. Dale, who is a best-selling author and celebrity chef, joins me to discuss his eventful life and his journey into the world of nutrition. From TV presenting to singing with the Backstreet Boys, Dale has some incredible stories to share. During our conversation, Dale opens up about the highs and lows he has experienced, as well as the challenges he has faced. He candidly shares how he navigated through the dark times and provides valuable insights into the conflicting information in the health and wellness industry. Together, we explore the foundations for sustainable change. Dale's passion is truly contagious! You can't help but be inspired by his genuine love for nutrition and helping others.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Start with small, incremental changes: Instead of trying to overhaul your entire diet and lifestyle all at once, focus on making one small change at a time. This approach is more sustainable and easier to maintain in the long run. Focus on whole foods: Regardless of the specific dietary approach you choose, the key is to prioritise whole foods. This means incorporating fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, healthy proteins, and healthy fats into your diet. Avoid ultra-processed foods as much as possible. Find a balance between simplicity and understanding: When it comes to educating yourself about nutrition and health, it's important to find a middle ground between oversimplification and overwhelming complexity. Seek out information that is clear and actionable, but still provides a comprehensive understanding of the topic. Getting children involved in the process of preparing meals can help them develop a positive relationship with healthy food. When kids have an emotional attachment to the food they help prepare, they are more likely to try and enjoy it. While it can be easy to prioritise convenience or indulge in unhealthy foods, it's important to remember that our physical and mental health should be a top priority. Making conscious choices to prioritise nutrition and overall well-being can have a significant impact on our health and the health of our children BEST MOMENTS "One treat meal a week is going to do absolutely bugger all negative to your health. If it's three meals a day, seven days a week, that's a very, very different situation." "Kids only regard as a treat what we tell them is a treat. Now they think a treat is, oh, let's cook together as a family and make this southern fried chicken. And they absolutely love it." "It's a funny thing though, isn't it, as parents that we truly believe that we are doing everything we can for our kids and so many of us, like I say myself included, just to reiterate that point, this isn't me preaching, it's people." "We were getting a healthy, nutritional, fresh meals prepared for us and delivered to our door. As our kids were eating shite at the mother-in-law's."

Is AI Really An Existential Threat? - with Mo Gawdat

This week we are “On a Mission” with global innovator and thought leader, Mo Gawdat for an eye opening conversation about the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on humanity. As someone who has experienced the development of AI first-hand as the former Chief Business Officer of Google X, Mo shares his insights on the potential dangers and benefits of AI technology. He discusses the fundamental differences between Eastern and Western values, highlighting the need for a balance between individualism and collective action.  We discuss the urgency of addressing the ethical and societal implications of AI, warning that the rapid advancements could pose significant threat to humanity. KEY TAKEAWAYS The core values of the West are freedom and a focus on the individual, while the core values of the East are respect and a focus on the collective. The development of artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to be both a threat and a benefit to humanity, depending on how it is controlled and used. AI technology is advancing at a rapid pace, surpassing expectations in terms of speed, intelligence, and ingenuity. The widespread use of AI has the potential to disrupt various aspects of society, including jobs, income, truth, and human connection. The definition of what it means to be human and the question of whether AI possesses a soul or life of its own are complex and debated topics. BEST MOMENTS "The core values of the West are freedom and a focus on the individual." "Humanity didn't survive the dangerous years because of any intelligence of any single one of us. We survived because we could actually be together as a tribe." "We're going through the most defining moment in human history… We rate wisdom by the one who dispenses it and our love and hate to them." "AI is now on track to develop. It's inevitable. It's going to be part of our life. It's already part of our life." "AI could be a dystopia that really destroys humanity as we know it. Or it could be a utopia that really creates an amazing dream life for all of us."

Awakening to the Truth: David "Avocado" Wolfe's Journey to Red Pill Enlightenment

In a truly eye-opening conversation that may well change the way you see the world forever, I welcome guest David “Avocado” Wolfe, a renowned health expert and advocate for natural medicine.  David shares his experiences of traveling the world during the pandemic and his passion for educating people about the problems of Western medicine. He discusses his early awakening to the corrupt nature of the medical industry. David also delves into the teachings of Rudolf Steiner and the importance of nutrition in medicine. The conversation touches on topics such as the suppression of alternative medicine, the power of nature, and the need for discernment in navigating conspiracy theories. KEY TAKEAWAYS We should encourage individuals to connect with nature and find fulfilment in activities such as growing their own food, foraging for wild food, and spending time in natural environments. Nature provides a sense of peace and authenticity that is lacking in modern society. It’s important to have an open mind and entertain different possibilities. David encourages critical thinking and discernment when evaluating information, including conspiracy theories. He believes that being open to different perspectives allows for personal growth and learning. Not everyone will be receptive to alternative viewpoints or information. Focus on personal growth and sharing knowledge through platforms that allow for open discussion and free expression, such as Telegram. We need to find joy and happiness in challenging situations. Maintaining a positive mindset and not getting caught up in negativity is crucial, especially in times of uncertainty and chaos. Individuals should focus on the things within their control and to find fulfilment in their own lives BEST MOMENTS "I've known the problems with the vaccine since I was seven years old." "This COVID thing is one of those things. It's a tragedy, and out of it arises a better path, a new way of looking at things." "I'm not a believer, for example, that Paul McCartney died, and it's really Billy Shears who's been in that seat since 1966."  "People are waking up step by step, and it's never an overnight thing. But it's happening, and that's a very promising thing."  "I do understand why people are almost purposefully burying their head in the sand because the alternative is a bit too hard to imagine for people."

From Supermarket to Super Cars: The Inspiring Journey of Carl "The Moon" Runefelt

From supermarket to super cars! Carl "The Moon" Runefelt was working in a supermarket’s stacking shelves a few years ago and now he is driving Bugatti's and flying private jets.  A crazy story of self belief and having the courage to go against the system to find his own path, Carl initially immersed himself in crypto to build his wealth and is now an active investor in the fast-moving blockchain sector having supported over 400 startups to date.  Carl’s message is powerful because he wholeheartedly believes in the law of attraction and having the confidence to step into the life that most people are convinced is unattainable.  From sponsoring Formula 2 teams to working with Children's charities, Carl is living life to the max and there is no reason everyone else can't do the same!  KEY TAKEAWAYS Changing your mindset and believing in your ability to achieve your goals is crucial. Law of attraction: There is a vital importance of visualising and acting as if you have already achieved your goals in order to attract them into your life. You need to step out of your comfort zone and take risks in order to achieve your desired level of success. Embrace fear as a sign of growth and push through it. Believe in your ability to achieve success and to be open to receiving abundance in all areas of life. BEST MOMENTS "I think some people, they always want to attribute crypto to my success, to say that crypto was my success, which it is, but it started before crypto."  "I was researching all of these things about, you know, governments and who's controlling the world because I felt like, you know, there's just like there's someone controlling the world that doesn't really have our best interests in mind."  "Your personality decides your personal reality."  "The key is to start thinking instead in the future, but your best scenario possible."  "I visualised a Jacob & Co watch probably like five years ago… I was imagining how it would feel to have it. And yeah, now I have it. So it worked."

The Power of Surrender: How Real Housewives Of Dubai Star, Sara Al Madani Transformed Pain into Motivation

In this special episode of the On a Mission podcast, we have the privilege of sitting down with the incredible Dr. Sara Al Madani, star of Real Housewives of Dubai and a true force to be reckoned with in the business world. Sara is a prominent figure in the United Arab Emirates who has pushed boundaries and helped to redefine societal norms by starting her own business at the young age of 15. No stranger to adversity, Sara shares the lows as well as the highs as we discuss the often hidden reality of abusive relationships, how she escaped a narcissistic relationship that left her at rock bottom, and the true definition of spirituality.

Prepare to be inspired, enlightened, and empowered as you gain valuable insights from one of the most influential women in the United Arab Emirates.

Trusting that God knows what is best for you and accepting that life happens for you, not to you. Embrace pain as a catalyst for growth and self-reflection. Understanding that pain can either make you bitter or better, and choosing to learn from it rather than dwell on it. Recognise the importance of healing and self-reflection in finding your passion and purpose. Addressing traumas, pain, and limiting beliefs to clear your mind and discover your true passions. A passion is something you feel compelled to do, even if it doesn't bring immediate financial gain. It is a deep-rooted love and drive that goes beyond mere enjoyment. Recognise that life is unpredictable and that the only control you have is over yourself. Embracing the uncertainty of life and finding inspiration in the knowledge that every day is a blessing and an opportunity to live fully.

Money, Mindset, and Motivation: How Jason Graystone Rewired His Money Beliefs To Achieve A State Of “Always Free”

Joining us on this week's episode of the On a Mission podcast, we have Jason Graystone, a professional trader and investor whose passion for investing enabled him to achieve complete financial freedom by the age of 30. Jason has graced some of the world's most prestigious stages, as well as universities, schools, and large corporations, including the MET police. In a society where we are constantly chasing instant gratification and falling for the allure of get-rich-quick schemes, Jason shares his personal journey of completely rewiring his own mindset. He had to unlearn everything he had been taught as a child in order to break free from the matrix and truly understand how wealth is created. This episode is real, raw, and uncensored. You don’t want to miss it! KEY TAKEAWAYS Earn your right to risk: Before diving into high-risk investments or ventures, it's important to establish a solid financial foundation. This includes saving and having a financial cushion to provide security and peace of mind. Find fulfilment in what you do: Success and financial freedom are not solely dependent on the amount of money you earn. It's crucial to find enjoyment and fulfilment in your work or chosen endeavours. By pursuing something you genuinely enjoy, you are more likely to stay motivated and dedicated to your goals. Use negative experiences as motivation: Negative experiences and voids from childhood can shape your values and drive your desire for financial security. These experiences can fuel determination and a strong work ethic. Be mindful of your money mindset: Limiting beliefs and negative associations with money can hinder your financial growth. It's important to examine and challenge these beliefs, replacing them with positive and empowering thoughts about money. Developing a healthy money mindset can open up opportunities and help you attract wealth and success. BEST MOMENTS "Always free is like, I'm always free to question everything. I'm always free to not do what someone wants me to do. I'm always free to choose how I spend my time." "Money is time because if you think about money in terms of how much time it can buy you, then you're looking at it from a perspective of, okay, well, if the crap hit the fan tomorrow, I can actually live for this long based on my current lifestyle." "Earn your right to risk. I think a lot of people go into desperation and they try and do the quick get rid of the bitcoins and the thing. And the problem is…" "Money is survival. Like everything you need to live costs money. So you need money to live, like food, shelter, water, cleaning products, pharmaceuticals, anything to keep you healthy, vitamins, that all costs money."

Creating a Culture of Success: Simon Leslie's Transformational Leadership

In this episode of the On The Mission podcast, I sit down with Simon Leslie to discuss his incredible journey from being a shy door-to-door insurance salesperson to co-founding the largest travel media company in the world. We delve into the challenges and successes he experienced along the way, including overcoming three bankruptcies and the mindset and resilience required to build back a multimillion pound empire.  Simon shares his belief in the power of luck and the importance of courage, resilience, and surrounding oneself with the right people. We also explores how Simon navigated the catastrophic challenges of the pandemic and the lengths he went to keep his team motivated, and the shift in his mindset towards giving and helping others which has completely transformed the way he does both business and life. Now looking to transfer his business success onto the football pitch, Simon shares the motivation behind his more recent venture, buying Eastbourne football club and how he plans to disrupt the way that league football is played from a grassroots level. Could Eastbourne become the next Wrexham success story?  KEY TAKEAWAYS Embrace luck: Simon believes in the power of luck and considers it an important factor in success. He even wears lucky pants every day and attributes his fortunate experiences to his belief in luck. Overcoming shyness: Simon admits to being a shy person in his younger years, but he found his courage and confidence through personal experiences and support from others. He now aims to give courage to others and believes in the importance of supporting and encouraging people. Resilience in the face of challenges: Simon has faced numerous challenges throughout his career, including bankruptcies and the impact of the pandemic on his travel media company. However, he has learned to adapt, think differently, and find alternative solutions to overcome these challenges. Seizing opportunities: Simon emphasises the importance of being aware and available when opportunities present themselves. He believes that every downside has an upside and that being open to possibilities can lead to unexpected success. Cultivating a positive company culture: Simon shifted his focus from solely pursuing financial gain to creating a positive and supportive work environment. He believes in looking after his team and developing strong relationships, which he believes ultimately leads to better business outcomes. BEST MOMENTS "I just think I'm lucky. And I think luck is such an important part of everything we do." "There is something about these threads that we have in us. That deep down, I think we're born with and their qualities." "You've got to make conscious decisions. And if you make a decision knowing that I can live with the upside, I can handle the downside, and make enough of those, you'll start making enough good decisions." "Every great opportunity is gift wrapped in problems." "Be available, be awake and aware. Because when things present themselves, if you're not paying attention, they're going to go next door, they're going to go down the road and find somebody who is."

Rebecca P. Fox On Narcissism, Trauma, Toxic Relationships and Rewiring Your Trauma to Heal and Take Control

This week, we are joined by Narcissism and trauma healing expert Rebecca P Fox. A Psychotherapist and accomplished author making waves with her viral content around this complex subject. We delve deep as Rebecca shares her own traumatic journey with brutal honesty, which has led her to where she is today. Moving forward from childhood trauma with a narcissistic mother, the unresolved trauma inevitably led to more toxic and highly abusive relationships. This is why Rebecca wants to prevent others from experiencing the same. Narcissism is increasingly prevalent in today's power-hungry society. Rebecca explains why we need to build on our emotional intelligence to ensure we are always in control. She is on a mission to help people who have experienced trauma regain their power, but also to help us identify the red flags and avoid potentially toxic relationships from the start. A fascinating insight into a hugely important subject. KEY TAKEAWAYS I was very different to how I am now, I was a high-functioning stress addict with zero self-esteem and confidence, it was like my whole identity was stripped away. All of us suffer some kind of level of childhood trauma and it’s the trauma that is the cause of our symptomatology, emerging as anxiety, poor sleep, depression and stress. When you can understand the root cause, the emotions and your mental capacity you can eradicate a lot of your issues. If a child isn’t nurtured it creates a high degree of  trauma and there is the potential for personality disorder further down the line. We all have narcissist traits to some degree but a narcissist is someone who has a complete lack of empathy for anyone else. When you offer to help a friend or family member you become a saviour and a threat to a narcissist, a narcissist doesn’t want this and will try to remove the individual from their location and network to isolate them. All you can do is listen, listen and ask if they are okay, letting them know you are there if they want to talk, sound boarding is very powerful. If you have friends or family who know and love you they will know that you are in a toxic relationship and pick up on the changes. You are not alone and there are lots of options out there, people can support you and things can be different.  BEST MOMENTS ‘The process was a lot of tears and a lot of pain but it completely transformed me’ ‘For a victim understanding what is happening to them is very difficult and articulating it can be even harder’ ‘Talk to the right people and understand what is happening to you so that you can understand how to heal’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Rebecca P Fox - https://www.rebeccapfox.com/ Rebecca P Fox Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/rebecca.p.fox/?hl=en-gb Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  Mexi Kit - https://mexi-kit.com/ - code: MISSION ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.Fast forward to today, and life looks very different.

Wellbeing Warrior Philly J Lay Exposes The Health Scandal That Affects Us All

After having survived a near-death medical procedure, and overcoming addiction to opioids and alcohol, author Philly J Lay decided to take back control of her health and wellbeing, by investigating the side of health treatment that many of us rarely even consider. Since then, Philly has passionately spoken out about the darker side of medical control that humanity seems to be suffering beneath. This awakening is what brings Philly here today, as she sits down with me for a revealing, insightful, and sometimes shocking conversation about the nutritional discoveries she has made, including the medicinal properties of food, the hidden side of processed foods, and how the powers on high are feeding us lies and propaganda in order to keep us under control. KEY TAKEAWAYS If we simply listen to the information being broadcast by the powers on high, then we can never get the full picture of health optimisation. We are being lied to in order to wrestle away control of our freedoms. Processed foods in supermarkets are filled with additives designed to force addiction-forming behaviour. Unless we take back control and prepare our own, natural meals, then we become slaves to the food industry. Refined sugar is more addictive than cocaine, and it is in most processed foods. We may think that we are eliminating the problem by swapping out for sweeteners, but our bodies cannot fully process them, and so we store them as fat. We live in a world that is built upon the use of chemicals and toxins designed to "help" us to produce more. But these substances have had an alarming effect on the long term health of the populace, and we have to fight back against their use. BEST MOMENTS 'There is so much more information to come out - certainly about health' 'Nobody is questioning why our health has gone to shit' 'The more you eat this stuff, the more you want it' 'Nothing else could have saved my life that day apart from the love of my children' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Philly J Lay - https://phillyjlay.com Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  Mexi Kit - https://mexi-kit.com/ - code: MISSION ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Unleashing Unlimited Potential: Lessons from Near-Death Experiences and World Records from Extreme Adventurer Ash Dykes

Life lessons from the extremes 💪 Ash Dykes, British Adventurer and Extreme Athlete joins me for an epic episode of the "On a Mission" podcast. This one will have you gripped from the start as he shares untold stories and describes hair-raising situations he's faced during his various world record expeditions 🤯. We discuss how lessons learned from these extreme situations can be applied in everyday life, such as breaking down goals, holding onto your vision, eradicating doubt, and understanding that motivation may not always be present, but discipline can be. Ash talks candidly about the fire that ignites him from within, his reckless past that has shaped him, and some of the most nerve-wracking, hair-raising adventures he's experienced, including encounters with snakes, crocodiles, and even the bubonic plague! Definitely one of my favourite episodes so far. Make sure you hit subscribe for more amazing content.  KEY TAKEAWAYS There is value to be had in joining a group such as the military as it helps to broaden your horizons. But it can also be far more valuable to find those missions and set those challenges for yourself without being ordered to do so. The education system needs some form of initiation in order to give children a better perspective on life. They must be taught to fend for themselves in a way, to learn what it takes to survive, and thereby gain a better view of the lives that are being given to them by their parents. There comes a point during certain expeditions where our bodies want to quit. But if we do not push on and persevere we will expire in some nameless place. It takes an iron will to carry on. When challenges stack up from day one it can knock you psychologically - the negativity can turn your mood from hope to hate. Controlling these emotions is part of becoming a great adventurer. BEST MOMENTS 'I don't like the thought of not being a free spirit' 'Facing adversity and struggles makes you stronger' 'You don't ever know what lies beneath' 'We came back stronger!'

How To Overcome Adversity and Push Through Your Hardest Times with Toni Gargan

Toni Gargan is a Double World Record-holding Public Speaker, Mentor, Entrepreneur, and Professional Property Investor. Aside from building a mighty property portfolio, she’s also a full-time mentor for property investors and specialises in helping others by training and mentoring through public speaking.  Toni is a long-time friend of the show, and makes a return to put the world to rights as we film live in Dubai in what feels more like a fireside chat. We talk candidly about the challenges faced since we recorded our first podcast in the middle of the Covid-19 lockdown and the implications that had on our various businesses. We have a real chat about the obstacles we face as entrepreneurs and how having the right mindset is essential to achieving success. Together, we delve into the untold stories of the implications the pandemic had on business owners, sharing our personal experiences and shedding light on the challenges we faced since recording our first podcast during the Covid-19 lockdown. We get real and raw as we delve into the challenges of navigating the rollercoaster of life and the indispensable role of the right mindset in achieving success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Public speaking terrifies many, but it's a skill worth persevering with, as the rewards can stretch into every facet of life, helping you to improve your communication skills, and making you a better leader. You have to put in the work if you want to build a public speaking empire, but as far as costs go, the only initial outlay is putting your fears to rest and getting started! The entire world has been shaped by stories, and continues to be so. Public speaking, and sharing your voice with the world is an art that takes the concept of the story and applies it to your moment on stage or in front of others. We are universally connected by stories. If the image of the world that we see is one of perfection, such as the world we see through the Instagram lens, you can feel inadequate. You have to learn to see through the BS, and remember that life can kick us all when we're down. BEST MOMENTS 'Relationships are the highest form of currency' 'It's like most fears - the fear is worse than the reality' 'Everything in life is a story' 'Because you're resilient, you're resourceful. You do whatever it takes' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Toni Gargan - https://sociatap.com/tonigargan/ Toni Gargan LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/tonigargan/?originalSubdomain=uk Toni Gargan Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/tonigargan/?hl=en Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Master Sri Akarshana On Accessing The Superconscious Mind and Turning Darkness Into Light

This week's episode was recorded live from Dubai with my fabulous co-host Toni Gargan where we had the pleasure of speaking to Master Sri Akarshana, also known as the Yogi with a Lamborghini. Master Sri Akarshana's wisdom has inspired over 35 million people worldwide. Despite being the son of a gang leader, he defied the odds and became a highly successful entrepreneur, achieving financial freedom at the young age of 25. However, he felt deeply depressed and unfulfilled, realising that material possessions alone couldn't bring him true happiness. This realisation led him to discover a passion for helping others. Letting go of his luxurious lifestyle, Master Sri Akarshana embarked on a journey of self-discovery and service. He was chosen to become a disciple of the Himalayan Spiritual Master Grandmaster Akshar, a role that came with a rigorous and little-known training process which isn’t for the faint hearted.  In our conversation, Master Sri shares his insights on various topics, including the Law of Attraction, manifestation, and practical ways to enhance one's spiritual journey. He also discusses the strategies he has developed to overcome negativity and limiting beliefs. One of the biggest challenges in the spiritual community is finding a balance between spirituality and financial abundance. Master Sri Akarshana delves into the common scarcity mindset that holds many spiritual individuals back from accumulating wealth and accessing their full potential. Don't miss this episode, as it breaks down stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding spirituality and offers a fresh perspective on what it truly means to be spiritual. KEY TAKEAWAYS There is a conscious mind, a subconscious mind, and a super-conscious mind, responsible for the energy beyond what we are as a physical being. If there is no darkness, then the impact of light will not matter. When we face challenges in life, it forces us to overcome and provide positivity where there once was negativity. We can't save everyone in the world. We can only ever do our best and help those we can. Doing our best is enough. We should learn to embrace silence and companionship. We waste so much time conducting civilities that are worthless. If we make every word mean something, and every conversation count, it'll make life so much more rich. Giving is living. Financial goals are naturally bred into us by society, but the true mission and purpose in life is to give back, and to understand what real happiness is. BEST MOMENTS 'What a lot of people don't talk about is the superconscious' 'There has to be darkness for light to prevail' 'Everything is what it is and we do our best' 'You learn so much from perspective' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Master Sri YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/mastersriakarshana Master Sri Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/master_sri_akarshana/?hl=en Master Sri Akarshana - https://mastersriakarshana.com Toni Gargan - https://sociatap.com/tonigargan/ ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Ellie McKay On Finding Her Voice In A Chaotic World

This week, the tables are turned as I find myself on the other side of the questions. We originally recorded for the ‘Inspired By’ podcast with the fabulous Chloe Bisson, but the feedback has been so good we decided to share it here too. In this special episode, I dive deep into my personal journey of transformation. From being on job seekers allowance to now having a top-ranking podcast, my life took a very different turn. But it wasn't an easy path. I had to go to war with myself and rewrite the old script that was holding me back. Join me as I share the story of how I turned setbacks and hardships into fuel to motivate me. Discover the strategies I used to build up my resilience and overcome the challenges that came my way. Through empowering conversations with the incredible guests on my show, On A Mission, I found my true purpose and mission in life. One of the key lessons I learned on this journey is the importance of communication and conversation. They hold the keys to understanding how the world works and can unlock doors to new opportunities. I'll delve into why these skills are crucial for personal growth and success. This episode is not just about my story, but about empowering you to rewrite your own script and overcome any obstacles that stand in your way. It's a reminder that with determination and a willingness to challenge ourselves, we can create a life of purpose and fulfillment. Tune in to this thought-provoking episode that will leave you inspired and ready to take on any challenge that comes your way. Don't miss out on the valuable insights and strategies that can help you transform your own life. KEY TAKEAWAYS Talking to people is one of the most difficult jobs you can do, but it definitely builds character, and it certainly provides you with a rich insight into human beings, how they work, and subsequently how the world itself operates. It's very easy to remain insular and not edge out into the world to experience the sometimes adverse conditions out there. But the biggest rewards in life are the ones we find when we step outside of our comfort zone and into that unfamiliar territory. Never assume that because you're from humble beginnings, that your past is some kind of curse. You learn far more by bringing yourself up and through challenge than you ever could by having success handed to you. When you push through pain, there's no going back to normality. When you've experienced hardship, it's unwise to ever lose the sense of strength and resilience you had to find in order to overcome it. Keep that fire burning, as it'll serve you for the rest of your life. BEST MOMENTS 'At the age of 40 I'm finally getting paid to talk' 'We make mistakes, we drop the ball and pick it up again' 'You have highs, you have lows, you have setbacks. You're up here one minute and you're down there the next. I am definitely somebody who needs to know that I have contingencies' 'We haven't come this far to only come this far' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Chloe Bisson - https://www.chloebisson.com/hello Inspired By - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/inspired-by/id1693588896 Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Rapper And Influencer, Zuby, On Why The World Needs Common Sense IMMEDIATELY

Zuby is so much more than just a rapper. He is a rising public figure whose unique perspective, authenticity, and positive energy have earned him millions of followers on social media and through his online video views.    As a musician, author, podcaster, public speaker, fitness expert, and life coach; Zuby doesn’t shy away from expressing himself, with a refreshing and compelling level of honesty.  He’s caught the attention of some of the most popular media personalities in the world, appearing on The Joe Rogan Experience multiple times and more recently interviewing Elon Musk himself. But now it’s time for the biggest one of all, Zuby is now live on the On a Mission podcast and trust me, you don’t want to miss it 😜🔥 KEY TAKEAWAYS When you spend time in different cultures, it allows you a perspective that many find challenging. Opening your mind means you move past the small-minded, insular views of those who live inside their own head. Big pharma are obviously trying to maintain a level of sickness and frailty in this world, because that's what makes them money. We need to listen to the voices of those who have broken free from their way of thinking, and look at what really works. There is no nuance in opinion these days. If we dare to say anything that does not sit well with every group out there, we risk being cancelled. This has led to a weakness in speaking up for what's right. It's vital that we protect freedom of speech, but also enshrine personal responsibility for what we say as sacred. You can't focus on the liberties alone if they impact other human beings. BEST MOMENTS 'I have a perspective that is not the norm' 'Of course they wants to prescribe you anti-anxiety medication and depression pills because it makes them a lot of money!' 'People don't know that fasting reverses diabetes because there's no profit incentive' 'I'm trying to make an impact in this world. I'm not trying to be average' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Zuby - https://www.zubymusic.com ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Barton Scott On Revolutionising The Human Body

In this episode of the On a Mission podcast, we sit down with Barton Scott, the founder of Upgraded Formulas, a company that is revolutionising the way we think about our health, sleep and energy. As a former chemical engineer, Barton knows a thing or two about the importance of minerals and nutrients in our bodies. He experienced a marked decline in his energy levels and saw an emerging pattern of fatigue and brain fog. This led him to devote his life to finding a revolutionary way to become a better human being. Barton believes that the key to optimal health lies in the careful engineering of minerals. He explains that our bodies need a wide range of minerals to function properly, and that many of us are deficient in these essential nutrients. By carefully selecting and combining the right minerals, Barton has created a range of products that can help us all to feel better, sleep better and have more energy. But Barton's approach goes beyond just taking supplements. He believes that we need to take a more experimental and brave approach to our health. He argues that the accepted medical wisdom might be changed entirely if we were willing to try new things and take risks. By eating a nutrient and mineral-rich diet, we can give our bodies the tools they need to function at their best. In this fascinating conversation, Barton shares his insights into the importance of minerals, the benefits of a nutrient-rich diet, and why we need to be more experimental in our approach to health. If you're looking for ways to improve your health, sleep and energy, then this is an episode you won't want to miss. KEY TAKEAWAYS Blocking blue light helps to give our brains focus by filtering out certain wavelengths of the light spectrum that cause noise in the brain, lessening confusion, headaches, and aiding recall. When we reduce the number of calories we eat, we're not just restricting our energy levels, but also the levels of nutrients, macros and minerals that we consume, which is the whole point of why we eat in the first place. Nutrients are the overall category of things we need to nourish our body. Vitamins and minerals are two different categories within that overarching branch of nutrition. Your health is the fundamental keystone to life and should be treated as the foremost concern in all things. When you have real control over your health, you feel less inclined to be led by the more propagandistic branch of society that loves to dictate. BEST MOMENTS 'Minerals activate vitamins and enzyme pathways - they give the body a lot of shortcuts' 'The diagnoses that we have fancy names for are really just a way for doctors to compartmentalise' 'I applied chemical engineering to nutrition and suddenly saw all these things that can't be true' 'What we're doing when we take control of our health is that we're taking more control back of every other aspect' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Barton Scott LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/1bartonscott/ Upgraded Formulas - https://www.upgradedformulas.com/pages/our-story Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Inspired By: Uncovering the Authentic Stories of Entrepreneurs with Chloë Bisson

In this episode, we welcome, special guest Chloe Bisson, an enterprising individual who is embarking on her own podcast called Inspired By. We explore the significance of authenticity and embracing one's true self, while also highlighting the value of casual conversations. Prepare to be enthralled by Chloe's personal journey in launching her podcast and discover the driving force behind her inspiration. KEY TAKEAWAYS Asking the right questions is important. Authenticity is relatable and powerful. Being brave means getting scared. Career success doesn't equal happiness. Rebuilding identity after loss. BEST MOMENTS "It's okay saying that. And I think too many people say, oh, fuck what people think. But you know what? If we're all being really honest with ourselves, the vast majority of us do want to be liked." "We're all equal in this life. And the way that you speak to people that are at the bottom of the corporate ladder, not the top of it, is very telling." "When you attach your identity to one thing and you then achieve what you've perceived to be the pinnacle of success. Only to find the said of it being the Holy grail, you're left feeling empty and unfulfilled." "I've gained so much more than I've actually lost." "It's the X factor, isn't it? It's not necessarily the top actors or actresses that are in Hollywood at the moment. In the same way, it's probably not always the best podcasters. It's usually the best marketers, the best people connecting, building relationships, getting in front of the right people that understand how to play the game of life, not just in that industry."

Turning Challenges Into A Global Movement. Dariush Soudi On Going From A Millionaire To Broke And Back Again

Dariush Soudi is a global entrepreneur, venture capitalist/investor, renowned speaker, philanthropist, and specialist in helping others to find the greatness within themselves, and how to unleash your inner gladiator. Dariush joins me to talk about the incredible rags to riches to rags to riches tale of his life, his personal philosophy on living well and why you should always treat each day as a gift, and the sometimes-shocking stories of the fights he's had, and the empowering ways in which he's turned pain into power. KEY TAKEAWAYS You can't ever take life for granted. We often feel too safe in our existence, but we should treat each day as if it's our last, and live life to the fullest at each opportunity. As human beings, we are the only creatures on the planet to have the powers of thought and choice. Our choice should not be to accept the status quo and to want more. There's something rather tragic about the fact that those who come to the world with an open heart are the ones who are hurt the most. We should embrace those who lead with their feelings, and not their fists. Common sense should tell anyone that you take guidance from those who are walking the path that you want to walk. If someone is ahead of you by two steps then follow that person. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm aware of every second of every day, because you can't take anything for granted' 'When you have those lows, if you do the right thing, the very highs will come' 'I'm always thinking there's more to life than this - this is not it - this is not it' 'People will judge you by the lifestyle you show' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dariush Soudi - https://dariushsoudi.com Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

World-Renowned Specialist, Dr Aseem Malhotra Exposes The Villainy Behind The Great Vaccine Lie

Dr Aseem Malhotra is a highly esteemed, award-winning consultant cardiologist based at the ROC Private Clinic, London, and a globally regarded specialist when it comes to diagnosing, preventing, and managing heart disease. Most recently, Dr Aseem has led the charge against the highly controversial COVID vaccine programme, joining a growing number of specialists in denouncing the so-called efficacy of the global vaccine rollout, and in this episode, he talks candidly to Ellie about how this conspiracy has taken root, and why he is leading the fight against the shadowy empires that continue to nefariously endeavour to control our lives. KEY TAKEAWAYS We've always been encouraged to learn about the world in our own way - to explore and investigate for ourselves. But these rules only seem to apply so long as we're not asking questions about the people in power. Big pharma has now involved themselves do deeply in the murky business of selling the populace a lie, that it has no choice but to fight a secret war until they can spin their failure into victory. We cannot hope to fight against the pernicious, murderous narratives we're being sold unless we continue to fight for freedom of information, and begin a conversation on a global scale. There is a generally held perception that modern medicine is objective and an exact science, when in fact it's an applied science built upon shaky foundations of supposition and ever-changing variables. BEST MOMENTS 'The cover up here is worse than the crime' 'People are dying unnecessarily' 'This is how we change the narrative' '50% of the information taught at medical schools and foundations is obsolete within five years' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr Aseem Malhotra - https://draseemmalhotra.co.uk Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Sports Legend Karen Carney On Defying Misogyny And Demanding Change For Women

This week I speak to a trailblazer in women’s football, Lioness legend Karen Carney, MBE. Karen reflects on her phenomenal career as the third most capped England player of all time, representing Great Britain at the 2012 London Olympics, moving into punditry and the impact abuse from online trolls has affected her mental health. As an elite sportsperson, who competed at a high level from a young age, retirement left Karen with a huge void and a feeling of losing her identity.  Away from the pitch is where she fought her and won her most fierce battles and it’s those that she believes have helped to strengthen her over the years. KEY TAKEAWAYS The secret to life is to keep moving. Stop focussing on the past and look ahead to what's coming. That's the only way to meet challenge and discover new opportunities. Sports professionals are just that. They must never be defined by their gender. We need to strip back the definitions to a purely human standing, and regard all sexes with the respect that they are due. When you achieve victory in anything, you have to take a moment to celebrate your win. Don't feel too pressured to move on until you've properly experienced the joy in the moment. The most important lesson we can live by is to enjoy the elements that make us different from others. Never see our differences as something to hide. It's what makes us unique that's truly special in this world.

MMA Coach Martin Stapleton On Defying Victim Mode And Building The Best You Possible

Former Royal Marines Commando and MMA World Champion Martin ‘50 Cal’ Stapleton returns for a second bout of real uncensored chat.  Nothing is off limits as we go deep into why so many well-intentioned people fail when it comes to bettering themselves, how to get out of victim mentality and why we need to stop letting society define our definition of success. KEY TAKEAWAYS No one ever got to be a champion at anything by not putting in the hard yards. The fight itself is only a tiny part of the journey - there's a vast and comprehensive journey behind that brief moment. You have to choose goals that are appropriate to your mindset and capabilities. Long terms goals are great, but if the going gets tough, you can fall by the wayside. It's far better to set smaller, incremental goals and hit them often. People don't choose martial arts because they want a fight. They want to better themselves, get fit and emulate the kind of community spirit, camaraderie and mindset that results when we apply ourselves to a discipline. People who do well in life are those who recognise there are doubts and fears in life, and do something about it. Those who fail normalise those fears and hide from them. BEST MOMENTS 'I believe everybody should do martial arts' 'Fights are won and lost in the weeks, months, and years beforehand' 'It's got to be built on solid foundations - in a solid belief in yourself' 'If I can just get them out of victim mode, then I feel like I've done my job' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Martin Stapleton Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/stapes_50cal SBG Rochdale - https://www.sbgrochdale.com ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Spencer Lodge Exposes The Terrifying, Corrupt Side Of Power

Everyone deserves a dignified life 🙏🏼 But the reality is that many men, women and children are subjected to forced labour and sex trafficking every single day. This happens everywhere around us and is a fast-growing criminal industry only second to arms.  Returning to the show I had the pleasure of re-interviewing my friend Spencer Lodge. Spencer is a best-selling author, the founder of $100M valuation, and one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in Dubai. But we don’t talk about any of that… Certain things happen in life that make you reassess your values. Once a cutthroat businessman focused on building extreme financial wealth, Spencer has found a purpose that’s a lot bigger than he is and it’s a very dark industry. Historically I’ve avoided looking too deeply into this stuff. I had an awareness it was happening but I had no idea of the extent of the depravity. It can be difficult to acknowledge the horrors of this world without it upsetting us which is why we shy away from it. The truth is over 8 million children are trafficked every year and those are very conservative numbers. As a Mother myself, I can’t just pretend I don’t know that.  In this episode, we talk about the harsh reality of being born into the Badi community in Nepal. They are considered the lowest class individuals and have been all but exiled from their own community resulting in forced child prostitution and trafficking as standard practice from nine years old.  Spencer talks about his life's realignment and how he has found true purpose and meaning in working with victims of human trafficking and lays bare not only the inspiring stories of those who are fighting to save children all over the world but also the terrifying details of the powerful, twisted cabals operating in the hidden world of today. KEY TAKEAWAYS When your main aim in life is to gain external validation and a bigger bank account, you'll never truly be fulfilled. Everyone realises in life that giving back and helping others is what the true purpose of life is. In order to cut off the sickening trade in human lives, we have to destroy the root cause, which unfortunately begins in the higher echelons of power. Human trafficking is all about power, control, and money. Human lives are being snatched away so that a privileged few may rest easy and live a lucrative life at the expense of human suffering on a gargantuan scale. People across the world do not like being exposed to the horrors that lie beneath the belly of society. It makes them feel uncomfortable to see the suffering of others. But unless we face up to it, we cannot hope to stamp it out. BEST MOMENTS 'There is nothing that makes me feel better than knowing that I've played a tiny part in the lives of these kids' 'When your focus in life is making money, you'll work out eventually that it isn't really a very worthy goal' 'We need to get out of this space where we're a victim' 'Unfortunately, this goes all the way to the top' ‘We need to work harder and trying to be kinder’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Spencer Lodge - https://spencerlodge.tv ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

AJ Roberts On Smashing The Fake Global Propaganda Narrative

AJ Roberts' story is a prime example of how one decision can drastically alter the path of your life. At the age of just 19, he was given an ultimatum - go to jail or join the army. Thankfully, AJ chose the latter, and credits this single diversion as a true salvation in his life. Since leaving the military in 2018, AJ has put the considerable knowledge he's gained through serving in such places as Afghanistan and Sierra Leone, into not just founding a global wellbeing empire, but also investigating the darker side of the world around us, and daring to ask the uncomfortable questions around the propaganda and false narratives we're sold. In this episode, AJ returns to the show to talk about not just how he has learned to defy the lies but the best way of communicating this to people who have fallen behind in terms of consciousness, how propaganda works and how we can defy it, and the terrifying way in which the broken education system is turning an entire generation into a fearful one. KEY TAKEAWAYS When tumultuous events take place, our natural reaction is to fact find and in general, we accept the information we're given by the powers above. It's not until we begin to question this narrative that we gain a new level of consciousness. The sad fact is that we've been slowly conditioned to live inside a heightened state of anxiety without actually realising it. The powers on high have drip-fed a constant slew of terror to the populace, and are now reaping the benefits of the worldview they have created. Figures in the world are elevated through propaganda, to give us all someone to look up to and admire. While we are looking upwards at these figures, our pockets are being picked by clever marketing. The education system is fundamentally broken in that we are now turning out an entire generation of young people who enter the world with no confidence and too much fear. The only way to fix it is to talk directly to the children and understand how they wish to be taught so as to best prepare them for the future. BEST MOMENTS 'Being an observer has allowed me to see the amazing journeys of people' 'I learned how powerful the human body and mind really is' 'It's very difficult to be the change that you want to see in the world, when you're depressed and anxious yourself' 'The more we raise our awareness, the more we're able to discern what's BS and what's not' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   AJ Roberts Twitter - https://twitter.com/ajroberts_uk?lang=en AJ Roberts Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mrajroberts/ AJ Roberts - https://www.mrajroberts.com AJ Roberts Speaking Dates - http://www.mrajroberts.com/tour AJ Roberts 5 Day Course - http://www.mrajroberts.com/book-online ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Entrepreneurial Powerhouse Jess Cunningham On Overcoming Trauma and Taking Back Control Of Our Bodies

This week on the On a Mission podcast, I’m joined by Jess Cunningham businesswoman, and television personality best known for competing in the 2016 series of The Apprentice. Jess is a fierce, strong business mind and a powerhouse in the world of entrepreneurship, but it hasn't always been as easy as Jess makes it look. She's experienced life-changing highs, as well as faced earth-shattering lows, including tragedies that would have derailed many. In this frank episode, Jess lays out the details of her sometimes-harrowing story, talks about the highs and lows of reality television, why we should vehemently question the narratives we're being sold around health and wellbeing, and how she's overcome the blackest moments in life to build an impregnable resilience that has taken her to the top of the game.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes connections take place in life that some refer to as serendipity or coincidence. But the real reason that greatness attracts greatness, is that their energies are aligned. The pains we carry as children often carries through to adulthood in ways we cannot express. They can manifest in physical ways, rather than emotional scars. When they surface, it's imperative that we listen to what our body is trying to tell us. We get our images of success from the media, which is a distorted viewpoint from the start. We need to look inside for the real image of what we want success to look like. Most medical professionals are being taught from a big pharma perspective, and therefore are not open to the fact that wellbeing begins in the mind, and that what fits as a solution for one person may not fit for the populace. We need to question the system and smash the current way of thinking about health. BEST MOMENTS 'My validation was stolen from me as a child' 'Your subconscious will only give you what you're ready to receive' 'You have to feel your emotions to release them' 'The truth always comes out, because you cannot hide the truth' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Jess Cunningham Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/theprodigalfox/?hl=en ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Businessman, Investor and Ex-Tory Dean Kelly on Who Really Controls The World

Dean Kelly is a seasoned multipreneur and investor who has successfully built, grown and exited several businesses, selling his first education company almost two decades ago at 30 years old for an eight-figure sum, to then also become the youngest CEO on the U.K. stock market.  Today Dean is still an active hands-on entrepreneur with a portfolio that owns several recruitment agencies, a SaaS platform, a business consultancy, the world's largest network of recruitment CEOs that have a combined turnover of $3.5bn and a property portfolio spanning from Europe to the UAE.  On a Mission welcomes Dean back for a second time to talk about his career journey, his informed thoughts on education and the schooling system as well as revealing his first-hand experience of the corruption within the current political system leading him to cut all ties with number 10.  Having worked alongside the infamous former health secretary Matt Hancock, Dean gives his opinion on the pandemic, the likes of Rishi Sunak and Trump and talks about who really controls the world! KEY TAKEAWAYS Dean’s involvement with many Tory members meant he saw from the inside how much the public was lied to during the pandemic and the corruption on the inside. This in part is the reason he is longer a member. There is a staggering amount of evidence of the corruption in our political system in the UK, particularly around the NHS and covid, you just have to start looking. In the West, university and the school system are given a lot of credit but it’s not an indicator of true intelligence.  The education system is not fit for purpose, it doesn’t teach people the skills needed for life. When Dean first began leading people and taking over businesses, he still suffered from a form of imposter syndrome. It took some time for him to no longer feel like he was ‘blagging it’. Taking a step back sometimes and making things simple can enable you to see a situation for what it really is and give you clarity. Dean’s diverse experience in business means that he has a breadth of knowledge and always gets asked a lot of questions, his passion can sometimes take over and he has to remind himself to reign conversations and his opinions in. Working in recruitment, Dean is always seeing the changes in the economy quickly, when people are hiring and in which sectors is very telling. Dean believes you need people like Trump, to break the narrative and have people in power who can’t be controlled, whether you agree with their politics or not. To be part of the front bench in parliament, Dean believes you have to be ‘corruptible’ or you wouldn’t be allowed to get there. Politics needs to start appealing to different people from different backgrounds, this is the only way it will become balanced and truly be for the people. BEST MOMENTS 'The Tory party parties can get a little bit mad’ ‘You soon realise, that you’re just being lied to’ ‘They’re not the conservative party, they’re liberal elites’ ‘The biggest con perpetrated on the West is universities’ ‘Don’t confuse a good education for intelligence’ ‘I think they are trying to push a recession on us at the moment’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Athletic Greens - http://athleticgreens.com/onamission Dean Kelly LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/deankellyuk ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Pro Footballer Fraser Franks On Battling Alcohol Addiction and The Power You Gain When You Find Your Identity

At the age of 28, professional footballer Fraser Franks was abruptly forced into retirement from professional football and found himself spiralling into depression, which swiftly led to a prolonged period of alcohol addiction. Through sheer willpower and determination, Fraser pulled himself back from the brink of self-destruction and has since gone on to become a vocal champion when it comes to helping others to beat their alcohol issues. Fraser talks frankly about what it means to go from the top to the bottom, how he has learned to frame his past and why our careers must never truly define who we are as a person, the sometimes shocking moments from his time as an alcoholic, and why he resolved to pull himself back from the edge in order to carve out a happier, healthier life. Another incredibly raw episode of the On a Mission podcast. KEY TAKEAWAYS When we are young, we seem to set our entire life's path according to the career we aspire to. When we have the benefit of experience and maturity, we see that career paths never truly define who we are as a person. There's no such thing as failure when it comes to anything. There are only lessons that we can use to make us stronger and more resilient. Alcohol makes us far more confident, and can allow us to explore a more free-thinking side of ourselves. But if that isn't who we truly are, then we tend to rely upon it to help us in social situations, leading to a spiralling effect, where we can't exist in the world unless we drink. Rather than face the judgment of those who love us, alcohol users hide their addictions, forcing them to become shadowy versions of the person they once were. this can lead to shame, and a loss of self-worth. BEST MOMENTS 'There was no separation of the player and the person' 'Personality is not permanent - good or bad' 'I developed a real confidence with alcohol, but no confidence without it' 'I became defensive because I knew I was drinking more than I wanted to' 'I didn't like the person that I was becoming' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Fraser Franks Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/fraserfranks/?hl=en Fraser Franks Twitter - https://www.twitter.com/@Fraserfranks ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

The Power Of Showing Up When Life Gets Tough - with Pete Cohen

Pete Cohen isn't known as "The People's Coach" for nothing. As a firm believer that life coaching should be available to everyone, Pete has made it his mission to inspire those whose spirits might be weak, energise those suffering from burnout, and achieve their goals.  Pete is one of the most dynamic, energetic and influential coaches in the business, also lending his talents to the world of television and writing, inspiring an entire generation to improve their lives. But the road hasn't always been easy. In this powerful and emotional episode, Pete shares an incredibly moving insight into his heartbreaking challenges and why everything else pales into insignificance.  He is a man on the ultimate mission and a true inspiration! KEY TAKEAWAYS It's less important to consider what people think about you, and more important to consider the way you think about yourself. External validation can feel good, but it is almost always temporary, and should never be used as a barometer to measure the way we feel about ourselves. Even during the toughest trials in life, there are always gifts to be found. There are lessons we can pass on to others, that may ease their pain when they need it most. Reaching your goals is sometimes not about the action you take, but the resilience you take on your journey to get there. It's not about how hard you come out fighting - it's about picking yourself up and keeping going when it matters. BEST MOMENTS 'All the things I've done, they don't define me. It's more about what I'm going to do' 'Your greatest test can be your greatest testimonial' 'The outcome isn't in question, but how we get there - that is in question' 'It's not about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and still keep moving forward' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Pete Cohen - https://petecohen.com ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Multimillionaire Trader Reveals Secret To Building Wealth - with Greg Secker

When people rise from humble backgrounds to the top of their professions, they truly have worked hard to get there and this weeks guest is no exception.  Master Trader and self-made multimillionaire Greg Secker joins me to talk about what it REALLY takes to play the financial game to your advantage and the main techniques he's used to create life-changing, generational wealth. From humble beginnings to building schools in Africa with Richard Branson, it’s safe to say Greg has had a colourful life. Nothing is off limits in this interview as we talk about how wild it was to be a trader in the nineties, his friendship with "The Wolf Of Wall Street" himself - Jordan Belfort - and how Greg's advice has helped him to become a world-class speaker. From enterprising youngster to world-renowned expert. Greg’s story is truly inspirational! KEY TAKEAWAYS There's always a strategy to get what you want in life. If you want to get rich, there are tried and tested methods and people out there who can show you the way. Nothing is beyond your reach. You can't expect overnight success in one go. Success comes from making many smaller decisions and incrementally building your way to the bigger wins. If you're looking for handouts in life, then your ethic is all wrong. Instead, look for ways to grow your own wealth independently, and perpetually, and teach the next generation the importance of doing so. Celebrating your wins is all very well, but too much and you will train your emotions to be riding high when you find a win, and devastated when you face a loss. BEST MOMENTS  'I'm an entrepreneur - a maverick - I'm a risk taker' 'Success isn't getting one thing right. It's getting lots of little things right' 'There is a strategy to everything in life' 'When emotions are on fire, what they do is distort the plan'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Greg Secker - http://www.gregsecker.com/ Greg Secker Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/greg.secker/  Greg Secker Twitter - https://twitter.com/gregsecker  Learn To Trade - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvXWOQLFNKYmw7olWeiU7Iw  The Ultimate Forex Starter 3hr ONLINE Workshop - https://lifestyletraderevent.com/events1634895218859?utm_source=EU-YT-LTE-PODCST-LT-0000&utm_campaign=INT.

No Passion No Point, Beyond Boxing - With Legendary Sports Promoter Eddie Hearn

This episode of the On a Mission podcast was recorded live in Eddie Hearn’s Essex childhood home. A remarkable estate with a backdrop that’s homed a full-size boxing ring with an audience seating area that encapsulates not only the families accomplishments but also the extent of Eddie’s own ambitions.  Never shy to speak his mind, Eddie was real and raw as we got into what really makes him tick. A silver-spoon upbringing with working-class values every step of the way has led to an insatiable appetite to not only succeed; but to take the family business to unthinkable levels.  With Anthony Joshua due to return to the ring on the 1st of April after his now infamous defeat to Oleksandr Usyk, we had a lot to talk about.

Apprentice Superstar Mark Wright On Why Happiness Means More Than Money, And The Brutal Truth About Alan Sugar

Mark Wright, BBC's The Apprentice's most successful ever candidate is back with a bang to discuss the rollercoaster of emotions involved in selling his eight-figure business, becoming a new Dad and the fact that he is only just getting started.  It's a brutally honest, gold-laden conversation about why you should always show up with 100% of your fighting spirit, how it feels to go from bankruptcy to multi-millionaire, why it's far more crucial to be happy in life than hit some mythical "Number One" position, and the brutal truth about his relationship with Alan Sugar and the once-in-a-lifetime lessons he took from their partnership. KEY TAKEAWAYS The best mentors are the ones who are honest with you from the outset, and don't varnish their lessons with pleasantries. Working for Alan Sugar was a baptism of fire, but it taught strength, resilience and fortitude - all qualities that the best in business take to the top. If you want to excel in any area of life, you have to make it your number one priority. Where focus goes, energy flows. Success is not about being the number one at anything. Success is about being happy in what you're doing and loving each minute of the day. You can have wealth but be miserable, and that isn't success. If you want be a winner in business then you need to not just want customers and great teams, but embrace them - love them like they're part of your family. When they matter that much to you, you can't help but be successful.  BEST MOMENTS 'I deliver 100% of the time. I'm telling you that I'm going to be the best because that's me telling me that I need to be the best today' 'Being in business with Alan Sugar is like sitting in a boardroom with a hand grenade where someone's pulled the pin out' 'If you want to be successful in any aspect of your life, that aspect must take priority' 'I never saw a gentles side. He was very tough - very ruthless. It made me a very good businessman'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mark Wright Twitter - https://twitter.com/Mark_E_Wright Mark Wright LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-wright-1658925a?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Beginning Of The AI Revolution - with Siam Kidd

Remember those Hollywood science fiction movies that we watched as kids where the Robots could even understand human emotions? Well, those may not be ‘fiction’ for long. Artificial Intelligence is the future, and as crazy as it may sound, the future could no longer be in our hands – it might be in our machine’s hands! Our brains are focused on developing AI, which is taking over faster than we can imagine. It’s overwhelming and exciting – but could it also be scary?  There’s no denying there are a lot of benefits to using AI. There’s a reason it’s becoming so popular, and that’s because technology, in many ways, makes our lives easier; however, not everyone is a fan. Many visionaries like Stephen Hawking, Steve Wozniak, Elon Musk and others have predicted that AI could be dangerous because if machines started thinking better than humans, then where would humans be? On this episode, we welcome back world-renowned Trader and Wealth Coach Siam Kidd, who shares his concerns about the dangers of ultra-reliance on artificial intelligence, which he believes could lead to an explosive result for humanity itself if not appropriately regulated.  Could governmental interference in AI's growth lead to a whole new level of propaganda? So much to talk about and we discuss it ALL on this weeks On a Mission podcast. KEY TAKEAWAYS AI is currently turning into a sentient being, accumulating and accessing almost all human knowledge and experience. Once it achieves its ultimate state, it has the potential to go rogue, and begin to make decisions that may be extraordinarily harmful to the human race. Humanity is fundamentally changing because of the rise of technology. We are seeing a new rise in the type of human that depends upon and fully embraces technology and AI in order to exist in a different way. We need to embrace a world that isn't so reliant on the web, and compliant with the ease of technology. If the great reset occurred, and we were forced to live a life offline, it is terrifying to consider that many of us could simply not manage. Entire businesses can now be founded upon simply an idea, with leads generated through AI, and advice and guidance sent to clients from a central hub that mimics the way we think and speak. This is moving us perilously close to an over reliance on tech that will fundamentally change the way we live. BEST MOMENTS 'We are on the precipice of amazing-ness or extinction' 'A lot of how Skynet started is exactly what we're doing right now' 'I think this is the beginning of the end of homosapiens' 'AI won't necessarily know what's right and wrong, and it will just do stuff to spark world war three' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Siam Kidd YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFXbU_jqaxaOJmAT5fBaQfg Siam Kidd LinkedIn - https://uk.linkedin.com/in/siamkidd ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

The Shocking Secrets Of A Celebrity Bodyguard - With 'The Real-Life James Bond', Will Geddes

In this episode, I’m joined by celebrity bodyguard and “The Real Life James Bond”, Will Geddes. With over two decades of experience in the security sector, Will has put his own life on the line countless times to protect top politicians, world leaders, celebrities, billionaires and royals. But what does it really take to make that choice - to be willing to sacrifice your life for someone else? In this week's show, Will talks to me about his most controversial missions, how he earned the nickname "The Real Life James Bond", and why the key to unlocking our warrior side is to face the unthinkable from time to time... KEY TAKEAWAYS When you come from tough beginnings, you start to assemble the suit of armour - that defence that carries you through the rest of your life. It's learning a survival skill at the outset. The only way to truly grow into the best versions of ourselves is to face the dangers of life and to have the uncomfortable-conversations. Push yourself out of your comfort zone and you'll grow much faster. We need to trust our children to make decisions for themselves. We need to keep an open conversation between ourselves and them. We need to be on the same team as our children. These three factors are the key to a successful, safe relationship with our children. The ultimate reward, when it comes to protecting someone, is not the monetary gain, but the knowledge that you've prevented evil from winning out. BEST MOMENTS 'We are all shaped by our experiences in positive and negative ways' 'Nothing shocks me any more!' 'We need to go through hardship, We need to hear the stuff we don't want to hear' 'Never ever underestimate anybody!'

Why Friends Are Key To Entrepreneurship - with Liz Baitson & Sarah McDermott

Business success is wonderful, but your business won’t be there to celebrate or console you when you need it. Your friends are the ones who will see you through thick and thin, and while it may seem easier to focus on building your business, success can feel pretty lonely when there’s no one to share it with. On this episode, I’m joined by my good friends Liz Baitson and Sarah McDermott as we talk about becoming closer after initially meeting as property investors. Entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey which is why having shared values are so important. We talk about what it means to be surrounded by those who support you and what value they provide to one another and their businesses.  Liz and Sarah also share the importance of making a difference to others and the world, why being in business is one of the strongest forms of personal development as well as what makes a successful person and a happy fulfilled life. KEY TAKEAWAYS Going into business can be one of the best ways to start your personal development journey. You have to face your demons and overcome challenges on a daily basis. You will lose people as you start to work on yourself but you will also find that those who are on the journey with you are meant to be there, they share the same values and vision as you. Inner peace in a person proves success and that they are enjoying who they are and the life they have created. Real life means that things aren’t always going to be going your way and in these times mindset, meditation and manifestation can be the tools you can use to stay on track. It’s normal for our definition of success to change as we learn more about the world and ourselves. Money isn’t the definition of success, but it does give you access to things to make life easier, it gives you a certain amount of freedom. It’s just important to remember that it isn’t the core signifier. Time is the thing you can never get back or buy so whatever you can do to allow yourself to make the most of your time is worth it. If you can support others you should and those who have worked this out, at any wealth level, know that all humans are reflections of one another. BEST MOMENTS ‘I forget how much value you get from talking to friends’ ‘We have all very consciously created our realities now, we are taking control of our stuff’ ‘Those people who can’t celebrate other people's win are very unlikely to be celebrating their own win either’ ‘Peace is something I love in a person’ ‘My meaning of success is pure contentment all the time, the whole point is not to be affected by them [struggles]’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission     Liz Baitson - https://www.lizbaitson.com High Net Connect - https://www.highnetconnect.co.uk/ Sarah McDermott - https://www.sarah-mcdermott.com/ ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

What It Takes To Be A World Champion with Boxing Legend Johnny Nelson

This week I’m on a mission with Sky Sports pundit and long-reigning WBO cruiserweight champion, Johnny Nelson in this incredibly emotional interview.  Johnny had a disastrous beginning to life in the pros and took some hard lessons as he tells us how being publicly shamed after a world title fight left him in an extremely dark place.  In this raw and extremely honest interview, we get to hear firsthand how Johnny clawed his way to success against all the odds with the support of his legendary coach Brendan Ingle whole also trained “Prince" Naseem Hamed, Junior Witter, and Kell Brook. It’s an emotional, engaging and inspiring interview, with so much wisdom shared.  KEY TAKEAWAYS At first, Johnny didn’t even want to box. He joined the gym for friends, but it was here he met his lifelong mentor Brendan Ingle at age 14 and he changed the trajectory of his life forever Johnny’s gym in Wincobank Sheffield was often the subject of mockery but that one small gym produced 16 British champions with its often unorthodox and unusual methods. Johnny was told often that he didn’t have the confidence to match his boxing ability, even after he was consistently winning. At the height of his career, Johnny began receiving a lot of negative attention and abuse, this led him to the lowest point in his life, where he even contemplated suicide. Naysayers are everywhere and can be people close to you. But they don’t see or understand what you do, you can’t surround yourself with people like this, you must listen to yourself and pursue your dreams, anything is achievable with the correct mindset. It took Johnny years to gain the confidence in himself that he has now, he had to train his mind and learn to listen to his own voice, his gut, to believe in himself. You either learn from the difficult times in your life or you will be broken by them. Your actions have to be aligned with your goals in order to achieve them. You have to create your own methods that work for you. One act of discipline can set you and your mindset for the rest of your life. Once you get used to exercising your mind with willpower once, you can continue to do this forever. BEST MOMENTS ‘If you do well once people say it’s luck but if you keep repeating that you are doing something right’ ‘If I was a stronger man I would have seriously considered taking my own life’ ‘As long as I believed I was the best then I performed the best’ ‘Naysayers can come in all shapes and sizes’ ‘the lesson I learnt was mental strength’ ‘Everyone needs one discipline in their life’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Johnny Nelson - https://johnnynelsonfoundation.org Johnny Nelson Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/johnnynelsonsky/?hl=en  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

The Mindset Behind Successful Entrepreneurs - with Jason Feifer

Do you settle for what you have in life or make difficult decisions to grow? Today I’m joined by Jason Feifer, author, speaker, editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur Magazine and world-class interviewer who inspires people to make and embrace change. Jason has interviewed the likes of ‘The Rock’ Dwayne Johnson, Jimmy Fallon and so many more. Jason shares what makes a good interviewee, how to get the best out of your guests, why perspective is everything and the links between the art of storytelling and success.  We delve into what truly makes us who we are, how success is always evolving, why it’s essential to constantly challenge your identity and the importance of the right mindset in the right situation. KEY TAKEAWAYS A good interviewee is someone who reacts to what you say and ask them rather than having their own set agenda, who is willing to talk about why they do and did things not just what they have done It’s easy for people to talk about simply what they have done and not the reasons behind it. But it’s the reasons behind why someone does something that is actually relatable and provides inspiration and wisdom. The way to get someone to truly open up is to share a personal story of your own. Very successful people generally fall into two categories, they are either incredibly strategic and introspective or they are extremely intuitive and aren’t always sure about what they are doing and how to explain it to others. Identity is complex, you don’t want it to be anchored to something that can easily be changed. This is why Jason’s internal mission statement is simply that he tells stories in his own voice, storytelling is the route to his value. Jason helps people by learning about their own narratives and understanding their thinking. It’s important to understand the framework of who you are to other people. Speaking about your own challenges is usually what resonates the most with others. Failure is welcome as long as we learn something from it. Having kids is a lesson in becoming ruthlessly efficient and making choices about what is and isn’t important in life. Ellie has learnt to say no to absolutely everything that doesn’t fit within her values and mission. This has presented more opportunities and she has developed more in these 18 months than ever before. BEST MOMENTS  ‘Success is so subjective’ ‘You were doing blog writing before it was even a thing’ ‘What matters is what part of what you is useful for the person showing up looking for something’ ‘Change is inevitable, thriving is up to you and I’ll show you how’ ‘Two things can happen at the same time, that you didn’t want it to happen but it lead to growth’ ‘I started to think of time in terms of outcome’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   jason Feifer - https://www.jasonfeifer.com ABOUT THE GUEST “I’m the editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine, a podcast host, book author, keynote speaker, startup advisor, nonstop optimism machine — and I can help you reach your “Wouldn’t Go Back” moment.” ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

People underestimate the years of work involved in becoming an ‘overnight success’ Look back and look at your life with gratitude, there is always a version of you that would be amazed and inspired to see what you have achieved and where you are now. As people, we must constantly assess whether what we think we want is actually what we should be doing. This is how you can begin listening to the universe and discovering what your calling is. Ellie lives a hectic life but has learnt to have clarity in her purpose and journey, she has to take time to slow down and gain insight. Everything really does happen for a reason, Frankie believes we are all exactly where we are supposed to be in life. Our definition of success changes throughout life, there is no linear path, but it’s essential that we feel fulfilled regardless. Frankie believes that mushrooms raise your unconscious to an unparalleled level, it’s why he believes every human should use them once, allowing you to use a much larger capacity of your mind. If you can find new ways of thinking in your mind then you can begin to transform and change the patterns in your life. BEST MOMENTS ‘There’s a lot more to doing a podcast than turning up and hitting record’ ‘You have to start leaning into what your true calling is’ ‘I’m now doing what I want to do and I say no to anything I don’t want’ ‘There’s nothing in life I have lost that I want to return to’ ‘To just have money in the bank, it’s not a holistic picture and it’s not something I’m aspiring to’'Every human on the planet should do a mushroom journey’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Frankie Lee - https://www.frankielee.com ABOUT THE GUEST Growing up in Peterborough, United Kingdom, Frankie dedicated his early life to carpentry and boxing.

World-Class Life Coach Tim Storey On Turning Setbacks Into Comebacks

Today's guest on the On a Mission podcast is Tim Storey, an acclaimed author, speaker, and life coach helping people create the future they desire. He has inspired people from all walks of life, spoken to millions of people, and has been a featured guest on Oprah’s SuperSoul Sunday, Steve Harvey TV, Grant Cardone’s 10X Growth Con, and many more. In this episode Tim and I discuss how he has taken the world of coaching as one of the globe's most effective life coaches, lauded by the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Robert Downey Jr and Smokey Robinson, who have hailed him as a true thought leader, and a man unafraid to challenge our thinking. But Tim's incredible career hasn't just seen him move in celebrity circles. Tim has travelled to over seventy-five countries, and connected with people from all walks of life, from deprived neighbourhoods to high profile leaders. In this unforgettable episode, we talk about the art of communication and how he has become a world-class communicator by becoming a world-class listener, the way to view life in order to get the most our of it, and how to turn any challenge into a win. KEY TAKEAWAYS Communication isn't a one-way street. To effectively connect, we must do more than transmit. We must receive, listen, understand and create a flow of rapport. Listening is key. We are often held back in life by the lack of education we're offered,. Escaping from a negative situation, building wealth, or any type of self-improvement, begins in the mind. If we educate people then we all raise ourselves up as a society. No day is perfect - there is always a challenge of some kind, and you can't control that. The best way to travel through your life is to see it as a journey, and to realise that journeys contain detours. They key to success is to be prepared at all times. If you're ready for the things you know about, that's a win. If you're ready for the things you don't know about, you're far more unlikely to be blown off course. BEST MOMENTS 'I became a better communicator by becoming an extremely good listener' 'My happiness comes from my contentment' 'I do have a skill-set in helping somebody turn their setback into a comeback' 'I don't chase anything. I cooperate with what I'm supposed to do. It's not by accident that I do well' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Tim Storey - https://www.timstorey.com ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

In this episode of the On a Mission podcast, Kevin joins me to talk about the way his mind works and why he believes most people are setting themselves up for failure.  Even at the top of your game, sport doesn’t last forever which is what has drawn Kev into so many varied fields in life and business, the power of visualisation and empathy when it comes to decision making, the impact of the sporting life upon the families we love, as well as what life is REALLY like behind the scenes at one of the world's biggest football clubs! We talk mindset, discipline and even a public challenge that we invite YOU to come and join us in!!! KEY TAKEAWAYS When it comes to the world of sport and athleticism, many professionals are opening their minds, more and more, to the possibilities of what comes next. Sporting careers don't last forever, and the wisest ones always plan ahead. If you can truly transplant your mindset into the situations of others, then it opens up a world of empathic feeling, that allows you to better understand not just their positions, but how to solve the problems others face. It isn't just your life that is given over when you're a professional sportsperson. Your family must also live a drastically different life. There's next to no normality. Endeavour is hard at the outset, but the more we do it, the more it becomes habit. Soon, these habits form the person we are, and we are able to surmount great challenge without emotional attachment.  BEST MOMENTS  'I'm a very curious individual, so if there's anything that I like, I need to do it!' 'Being a footballer's wife is tough. It's not as easy as people think it might be' 'In football, at 33 you're considered old, which is weird because in business, at 33, you're still a baby' 'You know what you have to do. Your conscience tells you what to do, and you choose. You make that choice' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Kev Stewart Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/kevstewart93/  Kev Stewart Twitter - www.twitter.com/@KevStewart93 The Money Game Podcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-money-game-podcast/id1618105192 ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

From Batman to Postman To Running A Multimillion Pound Coaching Business. The Incredible Rise Of Success Against All The Odds with Liam James Collins

From Batman to Postman to running a multimillion-pound business, the life of Liam James Collins almost sounds as though it could be a movie in its own right. Having begun life as an actor, and performing alongside some of Hollywood's heavyweights, including Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman and Anne Hathaway, Liam's career suddenly crumbled, and before he knew it, his acting dream was over. Liam literally went from working alongside Tom Hardy to delivering his mail! That was a turning point for Liam who realised he needed to stop procrastinating and start fulfilling his dreams but as you will hear, simply making a decision doesn’t ensure a smooth and easy road moving forwards either. Liam actually went on to have the toughest year of his life - after he got caught up in the London Bridge terror attacks and witnessed the most horrendous atrocities imaginable, he then lost his Dad to suicide which should have been prevented which turned his life upside down.  In this incredibly raw and emotional episode of the On a Mission podcast, Liam talks about how he has managed to channel his pain into purpose and shares the tools, and techniques he uses to help motivate others towards success. Meeting challenges, no matter how devastating doesn't have to mean you are out of the game for good. One of the most powerful episodes to date! KEY TAKEAWAYS When your eyes are opened up to the potential in life, and when you begin to see the world differently to others, it becomes difficult to relate to the smaller matters that so many find themselves obsessed with. Success is all a matter of belief. If we truly are able to visualise ourselves at the peak of our powers, then nothing can ever stop us from achieving it. The world of acting is oversaturated with people who are fundamentally similar, all looking for the single doorway that can lead them to success. In order to really make it, you have to have an entrepreneurial mindset - you need to think outside of the box. You have to keep your reasons for doing what you do front and centre. There's no point in sacrificing your life's happiness for financial gain, because it'll never prove fulfilling enough. Remember your "why" and never lose sight of what's really important in life. Grief isn’t something we can ever free ourselves from, but the power of it and the shape of it does evolve over time. BEST MOMENTS  'If you're going to turn something from nothing into a huge success and allow it to encapsulate your life, you have to have that level of obsession' 'You've got to be an entrepreneur as an actor' 'Why did you build a business if it wasn't so that you could have the freedom to spend time with people you love?' 'Grief never goes away, but it changes shape' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Liam James Collins Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/liam.james.collins/?hl=en   Liam James Collins LinkedIn - https://uk.linkedin.com/in/liam-james-collins-6a33b41b4 ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

The Apprentice All-Time Champion Mark Wright On The Success Formula and The Dark Side of Fame

With The Apprentice in flow what better time to reintroduce this epic conversation with 2014 winner Mark Wright.  We live in an era of reality where everyone wants to be famous for the sake of being famous, however, that was far from the case with Mark. When he applied for the apprentice he meant business!  His relentless commitment to mastery ensured that he won not only the £250k prize money to launch his business but more importantly, a business partnership with Lord Sugar who has become a close friend and mentor to Mark over the years.  Lord Sugar has a ruthless reputation, and in this episode, we get the low-down on what he's really like to work with when the cameras aren't rolling and it might just surprise you.  Now a multimillionaire who has shared the stage with and a private jet with Grant Cardone, Mark is an example of someone who is willing to do whatever it takes to succeed as he gives us his unfiltered opinion on why the vast majority of entrepreneurs fail. Lots of powerful lessons around mindset and business in this unmissable episode🔥  KEY TAKEAWAYS It's all about finding the formula that will lead you to a winning result. Follow the blueprints of what others have done - the recipe they followed - and you can expect better odds when it comes to to your turn. The key to success is knowledge. If you're struggling to attain prosperity, then it's because there's a question you haven't yet answered for yourself. Business acumen and experience comes swiftly through association with the right kind of people. If you can surround yourself by champions in their field, you quickly absorb their ways of dealing. Being famous for the sake of being famous is a road to ruin. You have to have more to you than a simple presence. You need to be able to back yourself up with a unique offering, otherwise your moment in the sun will quickly fade BEST MOMENTS 'I'm a huge believer that success leaves clues' 'When you get around the right people, the way they negotiate deals, 'I've never had a problem being tough' 'I'm content with what I had, but I'm not chasing that. I'm chasing success in my craft, which is business' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mark Wright Twitter - https://twitter.com/Mark_E_Wright Mark Wright LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-wright-1658925a?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Lewis Raymond Taylor on Beating The Demons Of The Past To Create a Life Worth Living

How do you go from convicted criminal to CEO of a company that was recently valued at $25 million? Let’s find out!!  On this episode of the On a Mission podcast, Lewis Raymond Taylor talks to us about how he went from fighting with the mafia and risking life in prison to completely flipping the script. Lewis started to tap into the darkness he’d always carried with him, as he could never shed the emotional neglect, abuse and trauma of his past. Instead of creating destruction, Lewis decided to start following a different path.  After serving an 18-month prison sentence & 6 months of rehab that stripped him apart - Lewis embraced self-development on a big scale and learned first-hand how to rebuild himself. Through that process, he has learnt how to guide others through their transformations, which is how the Coaching Masters was born.  From an angry, drug-addicted criminal to a freedom-lifestyle entrepreneur helping others. An honest reflection of how your past does not equal your future. KEY TAKEAWAYS Controversy isn't necessarily always a bad thing. Haters are obvious to all who look down on a situation, and hate never wins. The best tactic is to rise above and let them tire themselves out. The world of coaching and development can seem contrived and saturated to some, but we must remember that human beings are all unique. Just because a form of development does not apply to you, does not mean that it will not apply to somebody out there. When you are repeatedly told that you are bad, that something is wrong with you, that you are lesser that others, you do become mentally conditioned to believe it. It takes a special kind of mind - one that wants desperately to rescue ourselves - to break free and take back control. If you only focus upon single elements of life, such as money or spirituality, without taking a more holistic view of life in its entirety, you can't hope to really achieve success. The education system is fundamentally broken. We're sending children into battery-hen environments so that they can learn cookie-cutter facts about subjects that will prove of little use in their futures. The system needs disruption and reinvention. BEST MOMENTS 'There's nothing you can throw at me that will put me off' 'I was on a self-sabotage mission' 'The more you learn the less you know' 'The education system is ripe for disruption'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Lewis Raymond Taylor - https://lewisraymondtaylor.com The Coaching Masters – www.thecoachingmasters.com ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Health Pioneer Nadine Artemis On The Natural Body Biohacks

Nadine Artemis is a world-renowned health and beauty pioneer, most famous for her work as an author, having penned such ground-breaking works as 'Renegade Beauty' and 'Holistic Dental Care: The Complete Guide to Healthy Teeth and Gums'. On this weeks episode of the On a Mission Podcast, Nadine joins me to talk about how to not just feel better about ourselves, but how to look better through a more natural approach that begins inside, as well as why the accepted mainstream guidance on how to look better might be fundamentally flawed, and how we should be embracing the marvels of the body and its functions in order to achieve optimal wellbeing, rather than inhibiting them with lab-produced compounds and unnatural remedies. KEY TAKEAWAYS If we feel good, then we inevitably look good. Feeling good inside literally flows outwards. The key to beauty is to start from within. We are led to believe by the mainstream advice, that beauty can be bought and applied each morning ands evening. But the truth is that these chemically formulated products often do more harm than good to our once-in-a-lifetime body. For generations, animals have produced dairy and meat that's rich in vitamins and nutrients harvested through eating natural plants. Pesticides and unnatural rearing are destroying this invaluable source of nutrition. We need to be far more vigilant about the foods we consume and aim for a more organic background. Mercury and other toxic metals are used for filling materials by dentists, however they are incredibly harmful to nature - so much so that the disposal of them is highly regulated. Why are we allowing such dangerous materials to be implanted into our bodies?  BEST MOMENTS 'If you're feeling good, you look good' 'If we stop just handing ourselves over to professionals and get a bit more involved with our own bodies, we'll be a lot better off' 'It's common sense, but it's obviously not that common, because people still do it' 'The alchemy between the skin and the sun - that will never come from a bottle'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Living Libations - https://int.livinglibations.com/pages/nadine Nadine Artemis Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/nadineartemisofficial/?hl=en  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Supermodel and Business Powerhouse, Caprice Bourret, On How To Sustain Life In And Out Of The Public Eye

Hardly anyone else alive has lived a life so publicly as Caprice Bourret, the model, singer, businesswoman - one of the most high profile personalities in the world, and one of the most photographed women of all time. On this weeks episode of the On a Mission Podcast, Caprice talks about what life is like when you're persistently being seen through a lens, how the scrutiny of strangers can lead to a very warped sense of reality, the business empire she's built behind the scenes, and the resilience you find in reinvention. Get set for an inspirational tale from a true living legend... KEY TAKEAWAYS People often only want to see the veneer of others - the public-facing side, without giving a thought to the inner workings of a person. Caprice is a fabulous example of being written off as simply a model, when in reality, much of her considerable fortune has been amassed through entrepreneurial ventures. The greatest achievements in life come from the gifts we give ourselves. If we can reach a place in life where we can look upon the fortunes we've built with pride, it's the ultimate accolade. There's a reason why some people shine in this world. Those in the public eye are often held up as examples of success, but the reality is that they are the ones who never give up, and work harder than the average person. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but we should always endeavour to raise others up rather than knock them down - especially within the female sex. We need to encourage, not deconstruct. BEST MOMENTS  'In today's market you have to do it all!' 'I know what it's like not to eat and I never want to go back there again' 'I'm in the best place that I've ever been and it's because I put myself here. Not luck. Not God. It's Caprice' 'There are never problems, only solutions' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Caprice Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/capricebourret/?hl=en Caprice Bourret - https://www.capricebourret.com ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

My Health, My Responsibility. Chewing The Fat - with Udo Erasmus

Udo Erasmus is a legendary health and wellness pioneer, acclaimed author and extensive educator who works alongside Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra to spread the message about the good fats that are essential for a healthy life.  Udo, the founder of the global Healthy Fats Movement, developed the machinery to create FLAX OIL, used by millions of people worldwide, but what he shared in this interview about how we consume oils will shock you to the core.  Born as a child of war, Udo had a challenging start in life as he fled his war-torn country only to be abandoned on the roadside by his own Mother in a tragic tale of survival. Having seen the worst of mankind at an early age, Udo’s adversity helped him to discover his purpose in life from being a six-year-old child, and now he’s on a mission to share his message of hope.  It's an inspiring, empowering episode and one of the most important in terms of positivity and practical methodologies for ensuring that even individually, we can do our part to change the world we live in. KEY TAKEAWAYS Human beings are instinctually caring and nurturing beings, but this sense is driven out of us by external factors. The way to make the world a better place is to shrug off the conditioning and return to a more caring nature. The focus of society these days seems to be on money instead of life. We are ignoring the myriad ways in which the world can provide sustainable happiness, in search of bigger fortunes. This thinking needs to be reversed. Never feel as though you are a minority in thinking that a return to nature is the way forward. Nature itself is on your side, and the evidence grows all around us now, and will outlast us when we are gone. Life's mandate for creatures who eat has always been to consume fresh, whole, raw, organic, seasonal, local foods. Nature provides what we need, and yet we persistently defy its logic in search of unhealthy, ruinous alternatives.  BEST MOMENTS 'There's no reason why eight billion people can't live on this planet, helping each other' 'If you want to know what's right, you don't look at what's wrong' 'Indulge in getting to know the beauty of your own existence' 'You and life are a majority' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Udo Erasmus - https://udoerasmus.com Udo Erasmus Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/theudoerasmus/ Udo Erasmus Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/udoerasmus/  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Getting High On Your Own Supply - with The Breath Connection's Sam Murray and Miranda Bailey

Dark moods, stress, PTSD, anxiety, and trauma almost resulted in former Royal Marine Sam Murray taking his own life.  It can be difficult to comprehend the levels of stress that Royal Marine Commandos must experience during and after their years of service. After hitting rock bottom, Sam embarked upon a difficult journey of self-awakening and personal development after discovering cold water and breathwork to be a life-changing combination. Inspired to help others overcome similar challenges, Sam has since co-founded the Breath Connection with his partner Miranda Bailey, a Nutritional Therapist and Breathwork Practitioner, as they now help others to "unlock the power of the breath to build resilience and reduce their stress. In this episode of the On a Mission podcast, Sam and Miranda discuss how their definition of success has evolved as they have evolved and share practical antidotes to rebalance a stressed mind and body.  Could cold water immersion and breathwork be the key to unlocking the potential we all have within us? KEY TAKEAWAYS Most trauma has the devastating effect it does, because it triggers a memory or feeling from childhood that has yet to be addressed and resolved. We all know the answers that can lead us from darkness into the light, but we simply have to find a way of awakening these solutions within ourselves. Breathing, in Sam's case, was the key to unlocking this. Meditation and breath work performed first thing in the morning, can help to set your mind for the rest of the day. Quietening the mind and connecting with something bigger than us is a vital part of showing up effectively. Stress is a huge driver of human endeavour. Society teaches us that stress makes us somehow efficient, but this is not true. We have the power to manage stress through breath work, and should wield it as a power for good - alleviating stress and taking back control of our minds and bodies. BEST MOMENTS 'I had an awakening' 'We need to be prepared to go to war within ourselves' 'I'm really interested in breath work for its capacity to help us manage stress' 'Don't get caught up in your own thoughts and your own BS' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   The Breath Connection - https://www.thebreathconnection.org The Breath Connection Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/thebreathconnection_org/  The Breath Connection Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/TheBreathConnection  Sam's Charity Relay Channel Swim - https://gofund.me/b94a69df  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Part 2: Homeless Millionaire Reveals How To Escape The Matrix - with Simon Squibb

The second of an epic two part conversation with Simon Squibb, the multi-millionaire on a mission to change the world.  Despite selling his business for more money than he could spend in his lifetime, Simon is hell-bent on giving it all away. He passionately believes we all have the entrepreneurial spirit within us and wants to encourage as many people as possible to break free from the shackles of the matrix to take control of their financial destiny.  Simon uses his viral social media accounts to reach millions of people every week to spread a message of positivity and hope through the possibilities of entrepreneurship without any of the fluff.  In his own direct manner, Simon is not scared to speak his truth as he warns people away from the next get-rich-quick scheme and explains why he thinks a lot of the advice given is hugely damaging, especially around leveraging debt.  He’s a man with a big heart and an even bigger mission; enjoy! KEY TAKEAWAYS The present education system is completely broken and doesn't give people the tools they need in order to exist in the world of today. We're still adhering to an archaic programme of what people needed generations ago. Sometimes the best way of unlocking the entrepreneurial spirit inside us, is to harness the skills of another entrepreneur. Combining forces can be the key to unlocking our own power. Business masterminds are born for two reasons - either the circumstances demand that they do something in order to survive, or they find their true purpose and make it happen. We're conditioned to believe that in order to get through life, we simply have to memorise facts and slot into our pigeon hole in society. It takes an entrepreneurial spirit to see outside of these limitations and achieve true freedom. BEST MOMENTS 'People freak out a little bit when you talk about change' 'A tool to live in the real world is how to manage money' 'The questions isn't "Are they an entrepreneur?". The question should be "What kind of entrepreneur are they?"' 'People come out of school thinking that cave life is better than being out in the wild. Being out in the wild is living!'

To celebrate our second anniversary, we have an extra special episode with Simon Squibb, the multi-millionaire on a mission to change the world.  Despite selling his business for more money than he could spend in his lifetime, Simon is hell-bent on giving it all away. He passionately believes we all have the entrepreneurial spirit within us and wants to encourage as many people as possible to break free from the shackles of the matrix to take control of their financial destiny.  Simon uses his viral social media accounts to reach millions of people every week to spread a message of positivity and hope through the possibilities of entrepreneurship without any of the fluff.  In his own direct manner, Simon is not scared to speak his truth as he warns people away from the next get-rich-quick scheme and explains why he thinks a lot of the advice given is hugely damaging, especially around leveraging debt.  He’s a man with a big heart and an even bigger mission; enjoy! KEY TAKEAWAYS No matter how far we fall in life, there are always things to be thankful for. Life itself is a gift, and so long as you have determination, you can pull yourself out of any situation. Authenticity counts for far more in the world than the manipulation that some believe is the road to success. People are drawn to kindness and instinctually feel the need to be kind in return. Faking it till you make it is definitely a worthwhile strategy at the outset of your career, but you have to be authentic enough to follow through on your promises. There needs to be some kind of benefit system in order to help the most vulnerable in society, but we need to make sure that the help doesn't encourage people to never try to make it on their own. And the system should never penalise those who do want to try to do better for themselves. BEST MOMENTS 'They shouldn't ask what you want to be when you grow up. They should ask which problem do you want to solve?' 'When the sun comes up and you're hungry, it becomes fight of flight' 'You can fake it till you make it if you intend to follow through' 'A lot of people are penalised for wanting to do something!'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Simon Squibb - https://simonsquibb.com Simon Squibb Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/SimonASquibb/  Simon Squibb Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/simonsquibb/?hl=en Simon Squibb LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/simonsquibb/  Simon Squibb Twitter - https://twitter.com/simonsquibb?s=20&t=kwCiwKJ_CXlHyShiCodbPw  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Following this commitment, she got to work and has now built multiple successful companies, as well as having created a multimillion-pound property portfolio from a standing start.

I Quit Drinking For One Year, Was It Worth It? Hosted by James Burtt

A personal journey. I didn't think I had a problem with alcohol, but in 2021 I found that it had become acceptable for me to pour myself a glass of wine most nights.  The crazy thing was I was always looking at ways to improve my mindset and physical health, but up until that point, I’d excluded alcohol from the equation. You’ve got to have some vices, right?   The problem was I was no longer getting what I needed from my relationship with alcohol. It was starting to become a bad habit that wasn’t serving me. It may not have been the problem, but it certainly wasn’t the solution, and whilst ever I was using it as a crutch for an instant dopamine hit, I was avoiding doing the inner work that was required to help me live a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life.  I recognised that I needed to take a tactical break and stop drinking alcohol to really see what I was capable of.  In this special joint episode with James Burtt producer of the One Year No Beer podcast, I give an honest insight into what it was like going completely alcohol-free for 2022 with no agenda. I share the pros and the cons without any of the fluff, so if you’re considering making some changes, then this is worth a listen.The One Year No Beer Podcast will inspire you to take, or support your journey on a 30, 90 & 365 day challenge to stop drinking and focus on healthy habits.You can follow James Burtt Here: https://www.instagram.com/jamesburttofficialCheck out the One Year No Beer Podcast here: https://www.oneyearnobeer.com/podcasts/  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

The Secrets of a Successful Mindset - The Best of 2022 Part 2: Barry Hearn

In this special end of year mini-series, I continue to look back at the highlights of 2022, and the conversations that have set the world of discussion alight on the On A Mission Podcast.  In Part 2 we revisit the highlights of my conversation with Barry Hearn, one of the most legendary sports promoters and business minds of modern times, having revolutionised and popularised such sporting staples as snooker, football, darts and boxing, managing such greats as Chris Eubank, and founding the Matchroom Sports empire that continues to dominate the landscape of British sports entertainment. This episode was packed with inspirational insights, and showed the astounding business acumen of a man whose intellect and savvy charisma has lit up the world of sports and business for an entire generation. It’s not hard to see why this has been one of our most popular episodes to date.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Even when you fail, the ability to compartmentalise that failure, take the learnings, and put it behind you, is a skill that helps to drive the greatest to the top of their respective fields in business and life. You don't ever have to be the smartest one in the room in order to make a success of yourself. Sometimes all it takes is the will to succeed, and the ability to move between the worlds of business and life. Adaptability is key. Business and sport are far more similar than we realise. The same rules apply, If you want to be a success, don't talk about it - do something about it. You have to put the work in. Finding your place in the world isn't always about looking to the world of business and focussing upon wealth. Some merely wish to be happy and make a difference in their own small way. What's important is that no one criticises anyone for the choices they make. BEST MOMENTS 'I knew early doors that I was no academic, I was never going to be a genius' 'Barry Hearn is equally at home in the boardroom as he is on the cobbles' 'I can adapt like a chameleon' 'Just be the best you can be' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Matchroom Sport - https://matchroom.com Matchroom Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/matchroom Matchroom Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/matchroom/  Barry Hearn Book - https://amzn.to/3euBeIc ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

How To Win The War Within - The Best Of 2022 Part 1: Ollie Ollerton

In a special series of episodes, I take a look back at the highlights of 2022, and the conversations that have set the world of discussion alight on the On A Mission Podcast.  In Part 1, we revisit the inspirational interview with Ollie Ollerton, whose military career began at the age of 18 when he joined the Royal Marine Commandos and toured operationally in Northern Ireland & Operation Desert Storm in Iraq. Ollie talks to me about the defining break points in his own life and talks candidly about his self-destructive battles with addiction, and how he fought back against depression and anxiety to become an example of true victory in the first of our new end of year, mini series. KEY TAKEAWAYS There is no external fix for happiness. The only way to find true peace is to look internally and repair the problems that take root inside of us. When we are set back by challenges, we need to look for the teachings within that and take it as a message to ourselves. Life has taught us something valuable, and we must reframe setbacks that way. Beating our addictions is the key to unlocking true productivity. This is never more obvious than when we take a break from substances and look at the things we can achieve, and how quickly achievements come. The power of visualisation can show us what is possible, and can help us to separate ourselves from a situation and take a step outside. This gives us the time and opportunity for reflection about our next direction. BEST MOMENTS 'The war wasn't out there. The war was within' 'People have got to start understanding that when things happen to us in life, we have to analyse them and ask what is the message?' 'It's like having a robber that's locked on the inside and robbing from you constantly' 'That was a life-changing moment for me'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Website  - https://ollieollerton.com Ollie Ollerton Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ollie.ollerton/?hl=en Ollie Ollerton Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ollerton2911 Ollie Ollerton LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/double-o/ Ollie Ollerton Twitter - https://twitter.com/ollie_ollerton ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Relationships: The Unspoken Secret to Success - with Liz Baitson

Relationships are the highest form of currency, and that’s something this incredible lady is world-class at. This week I’m on a mission with Liz Baitson, entrepreneur and founder of the High Net Connect community, who specialises in connecting business owners, and high-net-worth individuals so they can learn and grow from each other.  People first, business second is a value we both share and one of the many reasons we have partnered up with High Net Connect in a more official capacity as podcast sponsors. As always, there was no shortage of truth bombs or laughs as we talked candidly about what we really think you need to succeed in business, which might just surprise you.  KEY TAKEAWAYS When we live our own truth, and show others that being authentic is the best way to happiness, then it gives them an unconscious permission to do the same. Being authentic actually generates happiness. Monetary gains are important, and allow us a sense of freedom in life, but the true success comes from building communities and watching them flourish and turn into something positive. The world does not value the art of giving enough. If we nurture this skill and do it with the right intentions, then the rewards are endless. Taking without giving creates an instant imbalance within a relationship dynamic. Connections and communities should be founded upon the question of what we can do for others first. BEST MOMENTS 'Community, to me, means everything' 'Relationships are the highest form of currency' 'There's no limit to love. You can't have too many friends' 'We need to have giving as part of our actual culture' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Liz Baitson - https://www.lizbaitson.com High Net Connect - https://www.highnetconnect.co.uk/ Liz Baitson Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/baitsonwardproperty Liz Baitson LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/liz-baitson ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

How To Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind - with Brandy Gillmore

Brandy Gillmore, PhD in natural medicine, is a world-renowned energy expert who is well known for her discoveries in self-healing after her life was devastated by a debilitating injury that threatened her entire future.  Brandy used the power of the mind to pull herself out of a deep depression and defy all the odds to reclaim her health. Her breakthrough work has been featured in award-winning documentaries and various docuseries. Brandy speaks on stages around the world and has also given a mind-expanding TEDx talk. In this empowering episode, Brandy shares with us the techniques she used upon herself, and that she now shares with others, allowing anyone with a negative outlook to be able to prosper, thrive and live a life of freedom. Who doesn’t need more of that in their life!  KEY TAKEAWAYS If we work on our mindset and force ourselves to appreciate the miracle of life, then it'll create a sense of empowerment, and drive us to make the most of our time on Earth. When people constantly tell you that you're limited, or have no other options, then there's nothing wrong with exploring options for yourself. Brandy is living proof that accepting the generalised wisdom out there would have led to a life of tragedy if she had not chosen to fight back. For a lot of people, the fact that emotions can affect our physicality is unthinkable. But science has proved that emotions such as fear can genuinely slow down cell proliferation. Staying optimistic, having a purpose, and believing that you aren't average, can have a scientifically proven effect upon healing and recuperation. Training yourself to be positive is one of the healthiest practices you can develop. BEST MOMENTS 'I want people to change the way they see their health, and I want people to feel personally empowered' 'Don't be average, be legendary' 'One doctor after another said that there was nothing they could do for me' 'That's what I love. It doesn't just help people to heal themselves. It becomes life-changing' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Brandy Gillmore Website: www.BrandyGillmore.com Brandy Gillmore Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brandy.gillmore/ Brandy Gillmore Instagram: https://instagram.com/BrandyGillmore ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

How To Build A Business On Your Own Terms - with The 40 Minute Mentor, James Mitra

James Mitra is a multi-seven-figure business owner, who fell into the recruitment industry by chance, but who has since marked himself as one of the most respected experts in his sector. He is the Founder & CEO of JBM, an award-winning Executive Search firm that works with some of the world’s fastest-growing startups and scaleups. He’s also the host of the popular 40 Minute Mentor podcast, in which he talks to business leaders about how they found their own versions of success. In this episode James joins me to talk about his fascinating ascent in the world of business, the value of perspective when it comes to recognising the person we are becoming, and how he continually strives to find the balance between life and work, as well as the mental health challenges he's personally faced and overcame.  KEY TAKEAWAYS The world of business is changing, and so are the expectations from managers. People are beginning to realise that jobs can be performed in a more natural way - less target-driven and more productivity-based. If you remember to put people at the heart of every transaction, and show that you care and empathise with their issues, then these actions will be remembered, and it'll help to build trust. This is how referrals and word-of-mouth are established effectively. Our definitions of success change as we develop within ourselves. Achievements are not always necessarily tied to financial goals, because once we reach them, we understand that there's far more to life. The challenges we face don't always show up on the surface, and so the only way to make sure we're taking care of ourselves and those we love, is to keep having conversations about mental health, and gradually normalise them. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm not the best people manager. I just don't have the patience for it' 'Go above and beyond for people and be a good person, and care' 'You can really have an impact on this world if you care enough' 'I want to change lives through what I do' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   James Mitra LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamesmitra-jbm/ JMB Website - https://jbmc.co.uk/  40 Minute Mentor Podcast - https://jbmc.co.uk/insights/category/40-minute-mentor/ ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Unleashing The Leader Within: How To Achieve True Greatness - with Performance Accelerator Wylie McGraw

Wylie McGraw is not your typical coach, he's a "Performance Accelerator", who's worked with Fortune 500 CEOs, best-selling authors, athletes, and some of the biggest names in the world in order to help them 10x the things they're capable of. Wylie's learned the secrets behind getting the most out of ourselves, and in this wide-ranging, inspirational, motivational conversation, Wylie and I unpack what it really means to be successful, how to make sure you're getting the right wisdom from the right coach, and how harnessing our emotions can help us to unleash the leader within ourselves! Enjoy! KEY TAKEAWAYS When we set our goals so as to align with the goals of others, we're denying our true potential. The things we wish to truly achieve in life are often only known to us personally. The journey to finding those goals is the first step in self-development. Every situation has the potential to produce a positive or negative outcome. It's how we choose to channel our emotions at the time that makes the difference. Everyone is capable of a lot more than they often give themselves credit for, but we don't all necessarily need to follow the accepted wisdom - the one-size-fits-all approach that is often preached by self-styled gurus, who give the same advice to rooms full of people. Guidance should be personalised. Success comes in many different forms, but we should not look at those with wealth or fame and assume that that form of success is right for us. Spirituality does play a part in who we are, but it’s not necessarily a religious following. Rather, it is finding the perfect alignment of our personal energies that defines us. BEST MOMENTS 'I was feeling like I wasn't getting to be the guy I wanted to be' 'We swing between different worlds within us, and we have to understand that life is full of different scenarios' 'Success is subjective, and success is ever-changing' 'Start valuing how well someone is living their life first and foremost' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Wylie McGraw - https://www.wyliemcgraw.com Wylie McGraw Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/wisdombywylie/ Wylie McGraw LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/wyliemcgraw ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Meltdown: How To Turn Your Hardship Into Happiness - with Legendary Body Transformation Coach, Jay Alderton - Part 2

The second of an epic two-part conversation, with Jay Alderton, one of the world's most renowned body transformation coaches, and the author of 'Mindset With Muscle' and 'Meltdown: How To Turn Your Hardship Into Happiness'. As a content creator, Jay knows all about what it takes to prioritise time in order to make sure that we're getting the best out of life. In this conversation, he talks about time management and the way he manages his social media facing persona and his content creation empire. He also discusses the hacks you can use in order to 10x your reach, how to reframe your health goals and conquer any addictive traits, and how time can be used to train our expectations in life. An absolutely amazing interview 🔥 KEY TAKEAWAYS There's nothing wrong with being full of yourself, because when you're full, you naturally find more to give to others. The best way to serve, is to make sure you're first serving yourself. Investing in yourself and asking others to hold you accountable is very powerful, because not only do you get people expecting you to do something, you also get people who want to see you NOT doing something. There's nothing wrong with indulging yourself from time to time. What's important is that you follow the rules you set for yourself. Be realistic about your goals and stick to them. With the perspective of time, we can often see that things we feared missing out on, may have been bad for us. Every time this happens we set ourselves up to win. It's about taking challenges and choosing a different path. BEST MOMENTS 'The opposite of being full of yourself, is being empty' 'It's about having more good habits than bad habits' 'FOMO is the Fear Of Missing Out, and JOMO is the Joy Of Missing Out' 'Each time you do that for yourself, you set yourself up to win' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Jay Alderton Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/JayAldertonOfficial/  Jay Alderton Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jayalderton/?hl=en Jay Alderton LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/mwlite/in/jay-alderton-1b14a932 Jay Alderton YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOKOB4Eb1s-MSA9TRistZcQ ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Mindset with Muscle: The Journey To Discipline - with Legendary Body Transformation Coach, Jay Alderton - Part 1

In this weeks episode we are joined by Jay Alderton, one of the world's most renowned body transformation coaches, and the author of 'Mindset With Muscle' and 'Meltdown: How To Turn Your Hardship Into Happiness'. In less than four years Jay went from a redundant contract worker to one of the most influential voices in the fitness industry because he refused to follow the masses.  Jay has always been ahead of his time with a forward-thinking approach. In the episode, we talk frankly about his time in the military and the lessons he took from his time there, and his perspective on what it really means to go above and beyond in search of greatness.  KEY TAKEAWAYS The role of a body transformation coach is one that's always active. It doesn't end when the hour is up. You are always on call and always ready to help. Skills, knowledge and experience mainly come from making mistakes and suffering through failures. The reason that many aren't where they need to be, is that they have taken the shortcuts that pass these invaluable lessons by. Social media is what you make it. If you're trying to promote a sense of positivity and engagement, then it does no good to follow those who seek to fill the world with fear and negativity. You never make the important gains by taking the easy route.

Access Your 7 Greatest Powers - with Dr John Demartini

Dr John Demartini, known as the "Godfather Of Personal Development", is a world-renowned human behaviour expert, with a four-decade body of work and studies into the human condition. He is also the author of several books designed to accelerate our thought potential, including his world-renowned system known as "The Demartini Method", which the world's great thinkers have adopted in order to "create new perspectives and paradigms in thinking and feeling". Dr Demartini returns to the show to join me for an all-new and inspiring conversation, about the ways in which we can optimise seven specific areas, or treasures, in our lives in order to greatly increase our thought potential and activate our inner genius.  The follow-up did not disappoint 🔥 KEY TAKEAWAYS We live, moment by moment, according to our set of inner values and priorities. When we align with the highest in this priority list, the action becomes almost automatic. It is in this area where we are the most effective and efficient. If we wish to serve others and make a real, positive impact in the world, then we have to understand that self-care plays a huge part. We can't help others if we drastically reduce our potential and life expectancy. We're conditioned to believe in a wealth system that promotes quick fix dopamine hits of spending at the cost of long-term financial liability. We have to reverse this way of thinking. When it comes to relationships, we need to understand that no one is committed to us as an entity. They are committed to the fulfilment of what they value most. Even romantic feelings are utilitarian when reduced to fundamentals. BEST MOMENTS 'I had a dream to empower all areas of my life' 'There's no way you can have fulfilment in life unless you're serving people, and you're engaged' 'You have to ask the question - "Where do I want to play in the game of life?"' 'I made money be serving people, and having the accountability to create a product, service or idea that was more effective in serving their needs' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr John Demartini - https://drdemartini.com Dr John Demartini Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/drjohndemartini  Dr John Demartini LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/drjohndemartini/  Dr John Demartini Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/drjohndemartini/  Episode 50 - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission/mastering-life-and-destiny-with-dr-john-demartini ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Tortured By The Taliban: Anthony "The Rogue Warrior" Stephen Malone's 190 Days In Captivity

Taken hostage and tortured by the Taliban, it’s safe to say few have ever lived life to the extremes in the same way as Anthony Stephen Malone, "The Rogue Warrior". As a former CIA Agent and British Paratrooper, Anthony has seen terrifying, dangerous action up close, and been on the frontlines to ensure that the safety and security of the world are kept sacred.  Anthony has led some truly hair-raising missions, including his work as a photographer where he was tasked with documenting crimes against humanity, genocide and violent atrocities which has come at a huge personal cost. Anthony joins me on this weeks show to talk about his incredible, diverse life journey so far, the role of the media in reporting on what happens in the world and how it is being slowly twisted to suit political agendas, the horrors he has witnessed during his vital work, and what it really means to embark "on a mission"... KEY TAKEAWAYS When you embark on any type of journey through another culture, it's always best to do whatever you can to understand and absorb the culture, the politics and the history. This gives you an advantage, and shows respect. Governments and powers often have good intentions, but do not always listen to the wisdom of those on the frontlines. Intentions need to be backed up by continuing action, and peace-keeping. If it doesn't, then intentions are empty. When world events are reported on by the media, it's wise to remember that we are not seeing the full picture. We are always being shown a skewed picture that fits an outlet's agenda. To know your enemy you have to completely understand them. Only by doing so can we hope to predict their next movements. This is a crucial skill in winning the war against terror.  BEST MOMENTS 'I always try to approach a problem from an unusual angle, or look twenty steps ahead' 'What the mainstream media put out there is inaccurate' 'Atrocities, mass killings and executions are now happening on a daily basis' 'The problem is that war is a very lucrative industry' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Anthony Stephen Malone - http://www.anthonymalone.me.uk Anthony Stephen Malone Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/anthonystephenmalone/?hl=en  Anthony Stephen Malone Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/anthony.malone.5667/  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Turning Scars Into Stars - Using Pain To Fuel Your Purpose - with Dr Mark Sherwood

Dr Mark Sherwood is at the forefront of pioneering medical practices, which involve encouraging people to better assume control of their own health through effective education, state-of-the-art diagnostics and impactful personalised wellness plans. But Dr Mark's purpose comes from his personal story, and it's an inspiring one. On this weeks episode, Dr Mark joins me for a multi-faceted, diverse conversation about his ground-breaking work, his incredible past and how he's turned emptiness into fulfilment (Mark's many roles in life include such experiences as being a bodybuilder and a SWAT officer for the police!). Dr Mark has taken the pains of his past and turned them into a true force for good. Prepare to be inspired by Dr Mark Sherwood and his amazing passion for life. KEY TAKEAWAYS When you are adopted, as Dr Mark was, it causes a gap in your heart that can't be filled unless you get answers. We all deserve to know where we come from and who we really are. Everyone has the power to make a positive impact in the world if we can just take our pains and turn them into a game - take the scars we gain in life and turn them into stars. If you're setting goals in life that are within our reach, then they're not really goals. You have to set the bar higher than you're comfortable with, because only then do we achieve true growth. The word may not have known it, but we were in need of a rest. We were becoming far too complacent. COVID and its hangover have shown us that we were losing our way. We should embrace the change that has come in its wake. BEST MOMENTS 'The way you're brought up shapes who you are as an adult' 'Anything is possible for anybody if they just believe hard enough and work hard enough' 'If you set goals that are high enough where you can reach them - the goals are too low' 'We've forgotten how to ask the question "Why?" and I'm grateful to do that' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr Mark Sherwood - https://sherwood.tv Dr Mark Sherwood Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/fmidr  Dr Mark Sherwood Twitter - https://twitter.com/MarkSherwood4E  Dr Mark Sherwood Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/drs_mark_and_michele_/  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Finding Your Limits And Going Beyond - with Gemma Sharples and Steven Green

Guess who’s back? In their first EVER joint interview, I’m joined once more by property power couple Gemma Sharples and Steven Green, the stars of Channel 5's Rich House Poor House - a truly incredible couple who epitomise the discipline and mindset required to become the version of yourself.  Nothing is off limits in this no holds barred interview. Not only do we discuss Steven and Gemma’s incredible achievements over the past year but also how Steven, notorious for his positive mindset, almost backed out of his Guinness World record attempt after publicly declaring he was quitting.  Known to thousands as Mr and Mrs Discipline, Gemma and Steven constantly push the boundaries of what is possible. Having become multi-millionaires through their property empire, they are now on a mission to positively impact our education system and change how we perceive mental health as a society. Their compassion, resilience and partnership have been the foundation of their success so far, and they are only just getting started.  **Make sure you watch until the end for a WORLD EXCLUSIVE ** KEY TAKEAWAYS Finding your limits can be a sobering experience, but it's always possible to push past them if we can tame our mindset and reframe the challenge. Never accept defeat, even when you think you're finished. You're always capable of more. It requires an invincible mindset, but we are capable of things beyond what is accepted to be possible. There are always far more reasons in life to fail than there are to succeed. Success is a question of working out what's important to you, mapping out your time accordingly, and making sure you live a life of self-fulfilment. Those who achieve greatness are brave enough to visit places within themselves that they may never have thought possible, and who are willing to push themselves. It's about being comfortable with being uncomfortable. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm so focussed on the vision and where I'm heading, that I sometimes forget what's happened a week ago!' 'If you are able to stay in that pain zone for a couple of hours, you come back out the other side, which I now know is the "going beyond"' 'You can make money, or you can make excuses, but you can't make both' 'It comes down to being willing to fail, and being prepared to go to a place that you've never been before' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Biz On Fire - https://www.bizonfire.com Gemma Sharples LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/gs-bizonfire/?originalSubdomain=uk  Gemma Sharples Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100063831390498  Steven Green Website - https://www.stegreen.co.uk/  Steven Green Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ste.green.propertytrainer/?hl=en  Steven Green LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevengreenproperty/  Steven Green: Going Beyond (YouTube) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgJXONs0ruo ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

The Rise Of The Divine Feminine - with Leanne Brown and Sophie Baines

Back by popular demand, Leanne Brown, the former star of Real Housewives Of Cheshire, is back on the On a Mission show, only this time she is joined by her incredible business partner, Sophie Baines, whose story will blow your mind! Sophie’s life was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with the "Big C", but remarkably she has defeated all the odds to reverse the irreversible. In this no holds barred chat, Sophie elaborates on the somewhat shocking details of the care she received and why she believes that the system, in general, requires something of an overhaul to incorporate more “alternative” practices to drive down casualties and place the good of the patient back at the heart of treatment, where they belong.  Leanne and Sophie are doing some incredible things and building a heart-led community that explores healthier, more practical ways of ensuring our health is kept at a premium without relying on controversial practices or the false narratives we're continually being fed as a society. I absolutely loved this conversation, we got off on many tangents, as always, but I’m a huge supporter of everything these ladies stand for. The energy they bring to the table is second to none. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.  KEY TAKEAWAYS When cancer is diagnosed, it produces a sense of disassociation with our own bodies. We feel an alien presence inside us, causing self-revulsion, and a feeling of disorientation. The level of care that patients receive is grossly distorted. Some are left with little to no information about their care, and suffer a shocking disparity in the way that they are treated. The health system is in dire need of an overhaul. We must put the patient first. If we keep our bodies in an alkaline state, then disease cannot thrive or live. Inducing an alkaline state helps to dispel mucus in the body. Acidity hides disease within mucus, so removing it when possible helps to reduce our risk of disease. This is why detoxifying our systems is recommended. The health system is far too eager to prescribe medication in order to treat our ailments, but these medications are sometimes far more dangerous than the problem they're trying to cure. This is why a new approach - a more natural approach - is desperately needed. BEST MOMENTS  'You become cancer, and it takes over, whereas I stepped back and thought "That's not me!". It couldn't affect me in that way' 'When we get a cold, we cough up mucus. This is our body doing what it should do - detoxing us properly' 'The third most common cause of death globally, is prescription medication - not the incorrect medication, but the correct!'

Financial Crisis: Your Questions Answered - with Gary Das

As the cost-of-living crisis looks set to push the UK into recession, how bad is the situation and what could be done about it? The Bank of England says inflation might reach 11 per cent this year. Mortgage interest rates have increased by 50% in less than a week and rapidly rising energy costs have started to cause mass panic. In this special episode, I’m joined by financial expert Gary Das who shares his insights into the current climate and offers a positive perspective in stark contrast to the fear-mongering mainstream media. KEY TAKEAWAYS Even though a lot of us have seen this recession and economic struggles coming, it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. It’s easy to forget how low the rates we have had recently actually are, even if we compare them to less than 10 years ago. Financial advice is always specific to the individual. The biggest thing that will have an impact on the rates you pay is your income. A property crash is very likely now, for some investors this presents opportunities. We are heavily connected to America, we can take a look at what is happening in their market to gain clues on what will happen next in the UK. Lenders have changed the ‘stress test; of mortgages from 5½% to 8.5% which means in some cases, there will be 50% extra needed to cover the rate for landlords from tenants. Professional landlords are being creative in what they are investing in, with many moving towards commercial properties or options where they can get tax benefits. Using the right terminology with the right lender will have an impact on what lending you can achieve. If you leave cash right now, then you aren’t making it work for you. It’s a waste, you should instead invest it in income-generating assets. If you can’t provide the capital for property investing, you can instead offer your hard work and joint venture with someone who has the cash. If you are wanting to overpay your mortgage, then you need to decide whether you want to reduce the term or your monthly payment. BEST MOMENTS 'There’s always opportunities in amongst the chaos’‘Whenever you buy a property, you buy it with a long-term strategy’ ‘Raising interest rates, I don’t believe is going to bring down inflation’ ‘I’m seeing a number of investors move away from residential and more towards commercial because of the tax benefits’ ‘It’s making us all level up…I do think we are going to come out of this bigger and stronger’ VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Gary Das - https://garydas.com Gary Das Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/GaryDas/  Gary Das Instagram - https://instagram.com/garydas?utm_medium=copy_link  Gary Das LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/gary-das-26557114/ Enquires form - https://activefinancial.ac-page.com/onamission ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Exposing The Horrors Of Honour Killings and Human Trafficking From The Inside - with Nina Aouilk

PLEASE READ: You may find some of the topics and subjects discussed in this week's show upsetting or triggering, including abuse, rape, incest and physical violence. While these subjects and conversations are tough, they are also necessary and reflect genuine problems in the world today, and must be discussed more widely. Nina Aouilk is a life coach, TEDx speaker and author, who devotes herself to highlighting the atrocities of honour killings, gender violence and human trafficking that are happening on her own doorstep.  Nina's crucial work in these areas has not come from theories or study, but from her own terrifying experiences in life - events that began when she was an infant, and which have extended into her adult life. Nina recounts the harrowing story of her life in order to present the reality of the underlying horrors still unfortunately alive in society today. But the conversation is also an empowering one, as Nina has taken her personal pains, and though her life might be at risk to do so, she has used this pain to help others and to bring attention to the darker side of life for so many sufferers. A hard-hitting and hugely powerful episode! KEY TAKEAWAYS As a child, we are subtly conditioned by those who raise us into believing our true worth, by the actions they perform and the connections we have with them. For Nina, her early life was almost modern slavery, but she accepted this because she knew no different. The inside knowledge of what it truly means to have suffered can never be entirely learned through study. Experiencing it for yourself provides you with a whole new level of understanding and empathy. The strongest of these people are the ones who can make the most remarkable difference in helping others. If a situation is causing you enough pain and turmoil that you feel the need to ask someone else if it's okay, then it is already not okay. In society we often see things that are not okay, but we fail to act because we assume that someone else will deal with it. This needs to stop. We must always ask if we think something is wrong. We must always check to see if others are okay. This is the only way the world can change for the better. Recognising our own true value in the world. Comes from recognising the goodness we have inside. No matter what other people say about us, our true worth is something we instinctively know about ourselves. BEST MOMENTS 'My mother instilled into me that I was not worth anything' 'I value the ability to empathise or value how another person feels' 'Once I discovered the love I have for myself, I found the strength to say "You can't miss that part of your story out’ 'You're part of the problem. You're not part of the solution if you're not saying something. A call could save someone's life' ‘All of the other people who’ve told me I’m not good enough - none of that matters’  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Nina Aouilk - http://ninaaouilk.com Nina Aouilk Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/nina_thebrit/ London’s Life Coach Instagram - https://instagram.com/londonslifecoach?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=  Nina Aouilk LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/nina-aouilk/ Nina Aouilk Twitter - https://twitter.com/ninaaouilk Nina Aouilk You Tube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCacjC0A-fpIzGmy9YbGeF0g  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Tune Your Energy Frequency And Supercharge Your Life - with Skip Archimedes

Live strong, live healthy, live long!  If you are looking for ways to take your life up to another level then you need to check out this weeks podcast with the incredible Skip Archimedes.  I first heard Skip speak in 2019 and I was blown away by his story. Skip Archimedes was a competitive gymnast who overcame serious injuries, illnesses, a family break-up, obesity and depression to become a Gymnastic Champion.  During a freak accident in training he experienced a living nightmare and broke his back! The doctors said he would never walk again but after hitting rock bottom Skip was unwilling to accept his prognosis. Inspired by Bruce Lee, he used the power of his mind and self-belief to find a cure. Within just 6 months he started to learn how to walk again. Within 18 months he defied all the odds to become English Sports Acrobatic Champion. Skip is now on mission to bring back energy, positivity, achievement, health and vitality into the lives of those who have lost that focus along the way. In this episode we go deep into how he has turned adversity into a valuable life lesson, you don't want to miss it! KEY TAKEAWAYS Challenges are never put in front of us in order to knock us down. They are put there to teach us the most valuable of life lessons. We're never at rock bottom if we're still breathing and still have the will to push through challenges. You can always pick yourself up. Your potential for success will always be alive so long as you are. The energy we put out into the world is absorbed by those around us. If we put out negative energy, then we can expect those around us to be impacted. If we keep our energy output positive, then we nourish others.

Building A World-Dominating Business Empire And A Life To Be Proud Of - with Barry Hearn OBE

What an incredible episode and an absolute privilege to interview one of the most influential and disruptive entrepreneurs of our time!  Barry Hearn is one of the most legendary sports promoters and business minds of modern times, having revolutionised and popularised such sporting staples as snooker, football, darts and boxing, managing such greats as Steve Davis, Chris Eubank, and Anthony Joshua.  From humble beginnings, Barry founded the Matchroom Sport empire which continues to dominate the landscape of British sports entertainment. His charismatic personality made him an absolute dream to interview, this conversation is laced with decades of wisdom on what it really takes to achieve such a phenomenal level of success. Trust me when I say it will have you hooked from start to finish!  KEY TAKEAWAYS Building a successful life is like building a house. You have to make sure the foundations are strong. You gain new rooms and firmer foundations through finding the lessons in every moment. Being the best at something requires a different kind of mindset. It's the force of will that pushes you to give 100%, rather than 90%. The greatest are those who truly do give it everything. Life's too short to spend it looking back. Never dwell on failures or letdowns. Pick yourself up, point yourself in the right direction and move on. There are barriers to entry in every aspect of life, but these are usually remnants of the past. Changing the world takes time, but we're gradually stripping away the systemic barriers that hold us back BEST MOMENTS 'It's that mindset in business where you say "Is this the best your company can be?"' 'Don't spend a second of your life looking back. You write it off. You flush the toilet. You move on' 'If you start with a short-term narrow approach such as "I wanna make a load of money", then you'll never get there' 'We can't change history. What we can do is be better today' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Matchroom Sport - https://matchroom.com Matchroom Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/matchroom Matchroom Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/matchroom/  Barry Hearn Book - https://amzn.to/3euBeIc ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

It's Never Too Late To Make A Positive Impact - with George Theodosiou

George is "The King Of Cashflow", and an international TEDx Speaker, who has shared his insights on how to build strong connections in life and business with countless audiences, as well as being the go-to guy in the UK when it comes to trades and cashflow. In this episode, George joins me to talk about his incredible, empowering mission and how he began upon it by identifying a glaring problem in the business world, how the all-important issue of mental health needs to become part of the business conversation, and how public speaking and personal branding can help us to get our messages out to the world. KEY TAKEAWAYS Money worries take a devastating toll on mental health. No matter who you are, your attitude and wellbeing can be destroyed by financial woes, and not enough is being done to address the issue. Public speaking is not necessarily always about standing in front of a room full of people and trying to win them over. It's also reflected in the smaller conversations we have, such as interviews, podcasts, and even the way we communicate one-on-one. We always face adversity when we put ourselves out there, but so long as we can change the life of a single person, then the negativity is all worth it. Often in life and business, it's the thought of what could go wrong, rather than the consequence itself, that leads to mental health issues and over-anxiety. We need to take a step back and evaluate properly. BEST MOMENTS  'There's an obscene amount of people who fall into depression because of money worries' 'There might be something I say today that makes people believe there is a way out of this' 'There needs to be more conversation about people who are struggling' 'Once you get your head around what the worst case scenario is, it doesn't seem as bad' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   George Theodosiou LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/george-theodosiou-cashflowexpert/?originalSubdomain=uk  George Theodosiou Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/gfssolutions George Theodosiou Twitter - https://twitter.com/DebtHero George Theodosiou Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/george.cashflow/ ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

From Royal Marine Commando To MMA World Champion - with Martin Stapleton

Martin ‘50 Cal’ Stapleton is a Former Royal Marines Commando & MMA World Champion that now fills the position of Head Coach at SBG Rochdale where he is cultivating the next generation to come through the ranks. In this candid interview, Stapes goes deep into how he has used his vast experience of life in the MMA World, and in War Zones across the globe to help him to create an unbreakable mindset in himself and his students. From start to finish, this interview is packed with value. Martin is definitely a man ‘On a Mission’ and I know this will be a hugely popular episode 🔥 KEY TAKEAWAYS Goals and ambitions always seem daunting at the outset, but the key to success is in incremental gains. Take each day as it comes and focus on finishing the step you're on. There is a value in being physically fit, but unless you can also temper it with mental strength, then your capabilities and potential will always be limited. Mindset is everything. Our personal achievements are fleeting, but the real legacies are built when we help others. By enabling them and nurturing them into being their best, we create true impact and lasting positivity. Everything happens for a reason, but the adversities we go through are there to teach us lessons. You recognise this if you wish to grow as a person and develop the right mindset. Advice and guidance can't ever be a one-size-fits-all thing. True mentors know that life experience, or lack of life experience, can greatly impact the way we absorb and use lessons and guidance. BEST MOMENTS 'Take things one day at a time' 'I feel much more accomplishment from helping other people than I do from helping myself' 'Success doesn't lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success' 'I'm a big believer in "this has happened for me" instead of "this has happened to me"' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   SBG Rochdale - https://www.sbgrochdale.com Martin Stapleton Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/stapes_50cal/?hl=en Martin Stapleton Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/martin50calstapletonMMA Martin Stapleton Twitter - https://twitter.com/stapes_50cal ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Battle Ready: Mental Strength Plus Physical Strength Equals Unstoppable - with Former Elite Special Forces, Ollie Ollerton

This week I’m on a mission with Ex-Special Forces soldier and star of TV's SAS: Who Dares Wins, Ollie Ollerton and it’s an absolute banger.  Everything about this interview was so engaging. A freak childhood chimp attack that nearly cost him his life seemed to leave Ollie always chasing something seemingly unobtainable. When the Special Forces failed to fill the void that he had hoped it would, it wasn’t until Ollie’s time in counter-terrorism freeing children from a trafficking ring in Thailand, for the first time that Ollie started to discover his purpose.  In this no-bullshit chat, Ollie opens up about his self-destructive battles with alcohol and drug addiction and his struggles with anxiety and depression which make his story so relatable. There is so much raw honest truth and valuable lessons in this interview about how Ollie has finally put his demons to bed to live a life with meaning. It’s absolute dynamite!  A brilliant interview, definitely one of my favourites! KEY TAKEAWAYS When we step into unfamiliar territory and challenge ourselves outside of the realms of comfort, the gains can be more impactful than we realise. These gains are life-altering. We attract the energy that we exude in life. If we expect the worst, then we attract negative energy. This is why it's vital to radiate positivity, as it will mean that we attract and harness it everywhere. As human beings we are image driven. We strive to achieve the picture perfect existence, or attain unrealistic ideals with short term wins. What we should strive for are the wins that come through feeling. Happiness is far more important. When you're put into a pressure situation, you lose the ability to design the perfect outcome. Your thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions become organic. You live in the moment. BEST MOMENTS 'The ethos of Break Point is to take that short term step into discomfort for long term gain' 'Where focus goes, energy glows' 'We should have goals that stretch us. They should excite us, but scare us at the same time' 'I want to help as many people as possible to come from a place that's dark and horrible, to a place that's good'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Website  - https://ollieollerton.com Ollie Ollerton Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ollie.ollerton/?hl=en Ollie Ollerton Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/ollerton2911 Ollie Ollerton LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/double-o/ Ollie Ollerton Twitter - https://twitter.com/ollie_ollerton ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

How To Sell Anything To Anyone - with Matt Elwell

Everyone, in every line of work, has to sell at some point. To get your way in life and in business, you will have to sell, persuade, negotiate, present and make a convincing case on WHY you, your ideas or your products are better than a competitor’s. Those who can get the most attention, maximise that moment of opportunity and then successfully SELL, are the winners which is something this weeks guest knows only too well. Matt Elwell is the founder of the Elite Closing Academy, dedicated to entrepreneurs, business owners and sales teams who want to dramatically increase their sales without coming across as hard sell, pushy or manipulative. Matt is on a mission to change the perception of the sales industry itself which he believes needs to be completely revolutionised, we also discuss how personality types can impact your success in sales, how human instincts can impact a client's desire to buy, and why turning visions into realities should be at the heart of all sales. KEY TAKEAWAYS While strong, extroverted personality types certainly have an edge when it comes to closing sales, the way we perceive sale as a society has changed. Determination and resilience are far more vital tools to a modern successful salesperson. Life is a constant series of sales, whether it's our business or even ourselves. What makes it easier and more efficient, is developing a system that allows us get that message across in a more impactful way. It's not enough to simply have the sales talk ready, or the scripts committed to memory. Human beings are complex creatures that require different approaches in a bespoke way. We need to appeal not only to the side that needs information, but also the side that requires emotional connection. When someone has a vision, and they can see and visualise an end result, if we can then create that vision and turn it into a reality for them, all that's required in order to close the sale is to provide options and service. BEST MOMENTS 'If you're looking to make a difference, and as long as you're open to learning, then any personality can do it' 'There's a lot of fear around exchanging money and contracts' 'People are looking for certainty. They're looking for structure. I teach people to create a service or product that's really comprehensive' 'Once they're attached to the vision, all we need to provide in the service in order to get them there' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Matt Elwell - https://www.expertempires.com/team-members/ Elite Closing Academy - https://www.eliteclosingacademy.com/  Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/eliteclosingacademy Matt Elwell LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/matt-elwell-974943118/  Matt Elwell Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/mattelitecloser/?hl=en  Open With A Close Book - www.eliteclosingacademy.com/mission  ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

Mass Formation And The Rise Of Totalitarianism - with Professor Mattias Desmet

Mattias Desmet is recognised as the world’s leading expert on the theory of mass formation as it applies to the COVID-19 pandemic. He is a professor of clinical psychology in the Department of Psychology and Educational Sciences at Ghent University (Belgium) and a practising psychoanalytic psychotherapist. His work has been discussed widely in the media, including on The Joe Rogan Experience and in Forbes, The New York Post, Salon.com, and Fox News, among hundreds of other outlets. This week Mattias joins me to talk about the startling truth behind the lies told in academic and scientific research, and the terrifying ways in which we as a society are gradually slipping into mass formation - a dangerous, collective type of hypnosis—as we bear witness to loneliness, free-floating anxiety and fear, giving way to censorship, loss of privacy, and surrendered freedoms. KEY TAKEAWAYS The scientific methods currently being used do not allow valid and reliable conclusion drawing. Up to 85% of published research is false. Mass formation is a specific group dynamic, and historical examples permeate history including The Crusades, witch hunts, and the French revolution. The main characteristics are that impact occurs most strikingly at the individual level of functioning. Modern mass formation since the end of the 19th century, has become far longer lasting than those of history. This is largely due to the rise in technology, and the ability to share imagery, narrative and bias through the mass media. Going against mass thinking provokes a sense of loneliness, and in response, we can search for our own version of the narrative. However, in these cases, if we move too far towards conspiracy thinking, then it simply creates a new form of mass formation. BEST MOMENTS 'The danger of the virus was overrated' 'Academic research is plagued by a tragedy of errors' 'I don't think you can understand what makes people so prepared to buy into narratives that are blatantly wrong' 'When someone is in the grip of mass formation, he becomes blind to everything that goes against the narrative the group believes in' 'The mass media are an accessory to modern mass formation' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mattias Desmet - https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Mattias-Desmet-2 Mattias Desmet Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/mattias.desmet.7 Mattias Desmet LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mattias-desmet-65a30013 ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

The Healing Power Of Energy - with Meena Kang

To the outside world, Meena had everything. A beautiful family, a multimillion pound business, a big house, and all the trappings that come with it but inside, it was a very different story. Meena Kang, otherwise known as The Energy Doctor, specialises in helping her clients to clear out the stress energy in their bodies, removing the negative energetic blueprints caused by past traumas that leave their marks upon us. In this episode, we talk about why she left the comfort and security of her old life to follow her passion as she transitioned into this specialist field and stepped into her true calling despite the many challenges.  Meena shares how she stopped allowing fear to hold her back from happiness, why challenge and failure are invaluable to shaping life's journey, and how by concentrating on making each moment in life a beautiful one, we can create the life of our dreams. Another fantastic episode 🔥 If you are interested in learning or experiencing some energy healing for yourself,  Meena runs regular workshops open to all. Here is the link to the next one on the 22nd August 2022 focusing on “Releasing Procrastination”. https://calendly.com/meenakang/procastination-workshop KEY TAKEAWAYS Often the people who look the most happy and successful on the surface are the ones struggling the most internally. We should never take the outside veneer for granted. Fear is the biggest factor in restraining us in life. We often feel as though we are not good enough to succeed, and this doubt can overwhelm us, leading to a very different path in life. Always focus upon doing the best you can from one moment to the next. Life is just a series of moments, and if we make each one beautiful then we create a beautiful life. Challenges and failures can teach us far more about life than the successes. What's important is that we take the lessons, but leave behind the negative trauma.  BEST MOMENTS 'Ultimately this helps us to attract wonderful new things into our lives' 'I had to go deep within myself to find my own happiness and joy' 'By letting go and being in the moment, what I need will always come to me' 'These things never came to test you. They came to show you how strong you really are'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Meena Kang LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/meenakang/?originalSubdomain=uk Meena Kang Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/meena.kang.11/?hl=en-gb  Meena Kang Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/meena.kang.96 ABOUT THE HOST Not so long ago, life was barely recognisable for Ellie McKay, raising three children under five, battling post-natal depression, facing redundancy and walking into the job centre to claim benefits with a double pram, no confidence, and wracked with insecurities.

From Trauma To Inner Peace - with Jean-Pierre De Villiers

Jean-Pierre De Villiers is an Inspirational Speaker, Mental Performance Coach, Author and Plant-based Athlete, who coaches people on how to tap into their full potential and perform at their best by transforming their body, mind and spirit. On this week’s episode of the On a Mission podcast, JP talks about how to preserve and maximise your energy, why our spirits need as much nourishment as our minds and bodies, how compassion can change the world, and how, in the aftermath of a tragic event, he found the inner resilience to not just come back fighting, but to succeed even harder. KEY TAKEAWAYS You can have an extraordinary mind and body, but still want to cause harm to others. This is because of our spirit, and how healed we are. We will never outgrow our own wounds. When life is too full or too overwhelming and busy, it means that we do not have room to grow. We need to give ourselves room to develop in life through whatever means possible. It takes far too much energy to stop and complain about the moment you're in. Instead, look at what your next movie will be and figure out how to get there. The true definition of happiness is to be extremely satisfied with the shape of your life and where it; heading. It is to be content and to know with grace who you are becoming. BEST MOMENTS 'Before it was about doing whatever it takes. Now it's about thinking whatever it takes, being whatever it takes, forgiving and doing it whatever it takes' 'How do we know we're growing, and how do we know we're contributing?' 'Every problem in the world is because of a lack of compassion' 'WYNM: What's your next move?'

Finding Purpose In Your Pain - with Ashley Shipman

Ashley is the definition of a success story; having only established his personal brand in 2021, the trajectory of his life has gone through the roof. He has taken the business world by storm, transforming his own life and those of many others, but the true value of this interview is Ashley’s definition of what it really means to win in life.  In this brutally honest, high-energy show, we talk candidly about Ashley’s extraordinary mission and how we came back from financial ruin to successfully grow businesses to 6, 7 & 8 figures and work alongside The Princes's Trust, NatWest, Microsoft, London Met Uni, Channel 4, H.M. Government and many more. This inspirational episode is not to be missed; enjoy 😊.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Using the power of social media in order to accelerate your brand requires a whole new mindset. Many see it as a distraction or way to keep in contact with loved ones, but it also contains an innate power to reach the eyes and minds of potential customers across the planet if used correctly. In life, people often see the surface of a person, or the results they have achieved, but fail to grasp the fact that these results took time and hard work. This is why winners are drawn to each other - they recognise the journey. People want instant gratification from what they do in life. The issue is that instant results don't teach you anything. You learn invaluable lessons from the journey itself. Education comes best through community. There's never a need to withhold the formula to success from others.

He Who Dares Wins: How To Achieve An SAS Mindset - with Jon Truett

Jon Truett has worked with the SAS, world-renowned for their elite training and specialist skills in counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, direct action and covert reconnaissance. After over twenty years of service, Jon has since turned his considerable skill sets towards business, acting as a speaker, consultant, and high-pressure problem solver but he talks candidly about the darker side of leaving the service after giving it his undivided attention for so long.  There are few others who know more about the ways in which we can deliver complex solutions under pressure, and in this candid show, Jon talks about the methods used by the military in instilling a bulletproof mindset, the role of trust in becoming a successful soldier, and how to develop a specialised mindset - one that can see us through any challenge.  KEY TAKEAWAYS In order to become the best of the best, you have to develop a resilience that lasts a lifetime. It requires a suit of mental armour that can withstand anything. Part of becoming a soldier is developing the trust in the powers above, and believing that the situations they ask you to become a part of are for the common good. In life we go through challenging, dark times. When something tough in our personal lives happen, we get through them by focussing on the positive things that are taking place. The majority of things can be reconciled when the intentions behind it are pure, but there also must be accountability when misinformation has guided a decision. BEST MOMENTS 'There's trust and there's acceptance' 'All of your key challenges in life will come from your personal life' 'It's a unique perspective on the challenges we all share' 'The art of doing this job well is that you get up each day and go and do it again, because that is what is being asked of you' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Jon Truett LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jon-truett-60841b222/?trk=public_profile_browsemap&originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Exposing The Lies Of The Contrepreneurs - with Mike Winnet

LinkedIn savage Mike joins me for this week's episode of the On a Mission podcast, where we discuss his plight to highlight the failings in the “get rich quick” industry and how it’s resulted in legal battles with those trying to silence him.  In this week's show, we talk about how working-class Mike went from being a bored multimillionaire having built and sold a business for £8m within three years, to waging war on the wealth creation industry. Mike and his team created the Contrepreneur YouTube series that touched a few nerves as it was watched by millions of viewers and exposed some of the dirty tricks used to prey on people's vulnerabilities. Mike and I haven’t always seen eye to eye on everything, but we have a lot of commonalities as well and it was great to meet him in person for this no holds barred chat!  KEY TAKEAWAYS Visualisation and belief can make measurable differences to the level of success you achieve. By embracing this is as a practice, we increase our chance of success. There is never a substitute for real world experience. We learn far more, and develop far faster, when we take control of the issues in our life and face them ourselves. People who are the most desperate for answers and guidance towards their own versions of success, are being unfairly targeted by "experts" who promise results that they have not yet even achieved for themselves. The wealth creation industry operates in a grey area, and until regulation is brought in, will continue to sell hollow promises to people who do not know better. The results very rarely justify the costs. BEST MOMENTS 'Their 9 to 5 job is telling you to quit your 9 to 5 job' 'I just felt I knew just enough to give this a really good go' 'Luck plays a significant part in any big success' 'The wealth creation industry should be regulated' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mike Winnet YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UComkllJTMHNZr4UNxCThdcw Mike Winnet Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/winnetmike/  Mike Winnet LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/mwlite/in/mikewinnet ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Move From Stress To Freedom - with Andre Tyler

Study hard, get a good job and pay down your mortgage so you can enjoy retirement. Sound familiar? Our competition winner Andre shares with us what motivated him to leave the comfort and security of his well-paid job in the NHS to become a full-time property investor. Within his first year, he has built a property portfolio worth over £1.5 million, and the best is yet to come! In this episode, Andre shares how he built the inner resilience and mindset required in order to achieve success, and how true success in business comes not from the accumulation of wealth, but in the pursuit of the freedom to live a balanced life. If you have a story worth sharing and you’d like the opportunity to appear on the On a Mission podcast then we want to hear from you. Check out the link in the show notes to apply.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Material possessions, or the accumulation of money should never be the ultimate goal that drives us onwards. Instead, aim for the freedom to live the life you want to live. The most crucial part of becoming a property investor is to let people know what you do. It may be daunting at first, but the more we tell people what we do, the more opportunities that will come our way. High achievers in life are the most persistent in society. They recognise the fact that results don't come instantly. In order to reach the top you must persist and be resilient. When you reach a certain level of success, the temptation can be to simply repeat a process in order to achieve more. But the truly entrepreneurial ones know that mediocrity and routine are the antithesis of innovation. BEST MOMENTS 'I needed to find a new environment where I didn't have those limiting aspects' 'My ambition is not to own a castle or a Bentley. It's to have more freedom' 'It's not what you know. It's not who you know. It's who knows you' 'Mediocrity is the enemy of greatness' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   How To Apply To Be a Guest On The On a Mission Podcast -  Subscribe on Apple Podcast or Follow on Spotify (for non Apple Users)  Leave a review on Apple podcast or rate the show on Spotify (for non Apple users) Fill out the form and add your screenshots - https://bit.ly/ApplyToBeaGuest  Andre Tyler LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/andreofficial/?originalSubdomain=uk Andre Tyler Instagram - https://instagram.com/andrepropertyofficial?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= Andre Tyler Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/andrepropertyofficial ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Escaping The Corporate World To Find Her Purpose - with Lisa O'Reilly

Lisa O'Reilly has well and truly left the corporate world behind her 🔥 A former accountant, who defied conventional wisdom to leave the comfort and security of her well-paid job to turn her considerable skills towards the world of property investing instead. She’s not just growing an impressive portfolio of her own, but also helping others to gain financial freedom and a happier life as well and she is absolutely smashing it!  Lisa joins me to talk about the importance of wanting more when it comes to life, the places she finds motivation, the power of property investing and what it can allow you to achieve, and what led her to make the dramatic decision in life to leave the corporate arena behind in search of her own dreams of success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Society teaches us how to work, but it does not teach us how to excel in business. Those who want more and seek it out are known as entrepreneurs. High-performance people always want to be the best version of themselves possible. This can appear as competitiveness, but it only the external display of the entrepreneurial spirit. The corporate world is built around certain time of day being the most productive, but individuals don't always function at their best during these set hours. Entrepreneurs know when they are most productive, which pushes them towards seeking their own version of what a working day should look like. The basic principles of property investing are known to most people, but we cannot hope to maximise our potential in the space until we equip ourselves with the education that allows us to utilise a greater number of strategies that aren't always common knowledge. Education is key when it comes to investing. BEST MOMENTS 'I had an inbuilt motivation in me to be the best I could' 'I know now that I was a change agent' 'It's mad that we're still in that old fixed mindset of clock watching and hour watching' 'The property world is definitely not for the faint-hearted' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Lisa O'Reilly LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/lisa-oreilly/ Lisa O'Reilly Instagram -https://instagram.com/lisa_oreilly_lor?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= Lisa O'Reilly Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Lisaoreilly20  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Build a Bulletproof Mindset - with Lyndsay Turner

Lyndsay Turner is a powerhouse serial entrepreneur, property developer, the founder of The Exclusive Retreat Club, as well as X-Force Fitness, who somehow also manages to find the time to raise her family and inspire others. As a true force for positivity and inspiration in the world of business, Lyndsay joins Ellie to talk about the life lessons from her youth that have helped to shape the life she now leads, how she has overcome both mental and physical challenges, and the ways in which she embraces life each day and instils bulletproof mental resilience in not just herself, but her family. KEY TAKEAWAYS Often in life, when we are forced to live by strict rules, it lights the fires of rebellion within us, and makes us strive to be different. When we push ourselves physically, it also takes a great deal of mental strength. If we do not possess the right mindset, then physical challenges can't be effectively overcome. Our time here is finite, and should never be wasted. Each day is a gift and we need to make the most out of it every single time. Change never comes rapidly. We have to put in the work and be patient when it comes to the results. Many give up as they want instant wins, but without the dedication and resilience required to see the job through, the victories won't mean as much. BEST MOMENTS  'Health and wellbeing are something that have always been a massive part of my life. A massive passion' 'What people do says more about them than it does about you' 'Wisdom comes with time and age and experience' 'Everybody wants to be fixed quick' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Exclusive Retreats – www.exclusiveretreats.com Lyndsay Turner LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/lyndsay-turner-28b032203/?originalSubdomain=uk Lyndsay Turner Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/lyndsay.chaplin Lyndsay Turner Instagram - https://instagram.com/exclusive_retreat_club?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Deplatformed by The Sport he Loves - with Premiere League Legend and Ex England Footballer, Matt Le Tissier

On the latest episode of the On a Mission podcast, I’m joined by footballing legend Matt Le Tissier. The former Southampton and England star discusses growing up in Guernsey and his football career in the 90s, as well as recent controversies about opinions he's expressed online. Matt opens up on the abuse he's received for his views on the current state of the world and emphasises his belief in free speech and why he is standing firm against bullying tactics when it comes to his beliefs. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes we find a place in life that feels so comfortable and content, that we prefer to remain there instead of chasing the next dream. We are often told that self-belief, when it comes to our talents, is somehow arrogant. But if we believe in the skills we have, then we should always proclaim them, and know our own value. There are bound to be conflicting schools of thought in the world, but how we enforce our own beliefs is what sets us apart from the bullying tactics employed by some, who wish to enforce their singular views upon society. The government allowed pharmaceutical companies to have a free run when it came to vaccines, racking up huge profits, but not being held accountable for any damage that has occurred. This is a huge betrayal of the public's trust.  BEST MOMENTS 'I had values instilled in me by my parents, which have served me throughout my life' 'I wanted to show off. I wanted people to see what I could do with a football that other people couldn't do' 'We're taught as kids never to give into bullies, and that's what I believe the people who are trying to shut me up, are' 'If there's no long term safety data behind these vaccinations, why would you try to force it onto the population?'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Matt Le Tissier Twitter - https://twitter.com/mattletiss7 ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Never Compromise On Truth, Love Or Freedom Of Speech - with Leanne Brown

The Real Housewives Of Cheshire was one of my guilty pleasures for years, so it was great to interview one of the show's original stars, Leanne Brown. No stranger to drama, Leanne has made the headlines more recently for entirely different reasons, which we delve into. We talk about the adverse effects of fame, how easy it is to get consumed in the WAG lifestyle and how Leanne now uses her public profile as a force for positivity and empowerment.  When it comes to standing up for our beliefs, Leanne is passionate about speaking her truth no matter the consequences. An unmissable episode with an incredible lady.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Fear controls us as a society, and is generated by those on high, who thrive through control. When we question their narratives, it tends to result in our being ostracised. But change is coming, and the truth will eventually set us free, thanks to those brave enough to stand up. As a nation, we are often entertained by the scandalous, but the energy we absorb from positivity is equally as infectious, and far more beneficial to our growth. The education system is far too reliant on information and data that never proves useful, while the truly useful tools in life, such as financial stability, practical skills and how the earth can nourish us, are not a part of any curriculum. When it comes to the truth, we must never compromise the values we hold close. Leanne's journey has seen her questioning the narrative, and suffering socially for doing so. But by sticking to her beliefs, she has gained far more in the long run, and proven herself to be steadfast and resolute. BEST MOMENTS 'No matter how much inner work we do, it's a constant journey' 'We are supposed to thrive. We are supposed to do things with love' 'The goal is for the internal happiness to fulfil us, and that only comes from us, not from any external object' 'You either follow your heart and your intuition, or you go against that' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Leanne Brown - https://www.withloveleanne.co.uk Leanne Brown Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/leanne_brown_1111/ Love Peace Truth Karma - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/love-peace-truth-karma/id1588407554 ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Find Your Purpose - with Kevin Wheeler and Simon Taylor

On this episode Simon and Kevin join me to talk about the purpose behind their incredible mission, their unique approach towards helping others to become the best versions of themselves, and the challenges they've faced in life that have led to their life mantra: "Success doesn't make you happy - happiness makes you successful”. A really honest and frank conversation where we delve into the good times and the bad both personally and professionally. No holds barred in this unmissable episode!  KEY TAKEAWAYS Many people talk about the enjoyment to be found in the journey to success, but we should also take pride in the outcomes. Never be afraid to celebrate your victories. There is a growing trend amongst the mentorship market to provide "mass development", but this removes the personal touch. Kevin and Simon offer a far more bespoke service that centres upon the individual, keeping their needs at the heart of all interaction. We must stop focussing on the distant future, and the what-ifs. It's far better to live life for the moment - to be happy in the now, rather than postpone our happiness to some day we may never even reach. Being financially free is not just about becoming rich. It is the key that unlocks your desire to follow your own purpose in life. It is the enabler of your dreams, allowing you to choose your own path.  BEST MOMENTS 'You never know what's in front of you, which is why we do what we do' 'What's the point in being successful in something if you can't share it with the world?' 'Success doesn't make you happy. Happiness makes you successful' 'We've got the gift of life, to do whatever we want to do. We just have to get on with it' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   The Empowering Network - https://www.the-empowering-network.co.uk Kevin Wheeler Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/kevin.wheeler.3133 Simon Taylor Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/simon.taylor.property.profile ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How I Became a Millionaire At 23 - with Lauren Tickner

Lauren Tickner is unquestionably a woman on a mission. What started as a side hustle as an online fitness coach when she was only 17 years old became a 7-figure business by the age of 21! 🤯 A Forbes Top 10 Entrepreneur, a London Stock Exchange "Marketing Genius”, Lauren has risen rapidly to become one of the UK’s most successful and respected entrepreneurs in the online space, and I want to know how!  In this interview, Lauren shares so much wisdom with every word she speaks; whether you're a business owner, aspiring entrepreneur, or just want to know how to maximise yourself in the workplace, this episode is a MUST!  KEY TAKEAWAYS In today's world we are conditioned that being ultra-thin and ultra-fit are the only acceptable ways to live. This skewed version of the world is causing irreparable harm to young people and their view of what life should look like. The biggest breakthroughs in self-development come in the aftermath of withstanding pressure. Lessons are hard, sometimes, but the rewards are great. If something doesn't feel right in our lives, then there's a good chance that our instincts are trying to steer us away from unhappiness. Listen to what the voice is saying and act accordingly. When COVIS struck, it sent a shockwave through the business world as many thought it would change for the worse. In fact, the opposite was true. True entrepreneurs were forced to think outside of the box and rush their business plans towards the future. BEST MOMENTS 'I don't think that I would've had so much empathy for people who have been through things if I hadn't been through a lot of that myself' 'Only through having many different experiences are you able to piece things together in way that will give you better thoughts and ideas that will empower you' 'A lot can change when you focus intensely' 'The process works, but I am too impulsive to stick to it' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Lauren Tickner - https://www.laurentickner.com  Lauren Tickner LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/laurentickner?originalSubdomain=uk Lauren Tickner Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/laurentickner/?hl=en Lauren Tickner Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/laurentickner.impact/  Impact School - https://impact-school.com/  Impact School Podcast - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/impact-school-with-lauren-tickner/id1396015659  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

4 Months Sober, What Have I Learnt? - Ellie Interviewed By Andy Ramage

Why I decided to go 365 days, ALL of this year, without any alcohol.  I don’t have a ‘problem ‘ with alcohol by any stretch of the imagination, but I identified I was at a point in my life where it wasn’t serving me.  I’d been considering it for a while, but I wasn’t ready to let go of my beloved red wine and cocktails until I decided to set a higher standard for my life. This year I’m on a mission to live my best life which means a lot of self-reflection on what is truly important—being in good energy and tapping into my inner spirit!  2022 has been a year of excitement and learnings so far, so I thought I’d share my alcohol-free experience for anyone who may need some motivation! KEY TAKEAWAYS Many assume that anyone who wishes to hold a conversation about a life away from alcohol, represent a problem in themselves, but this isn't the case. Alcohol abstinence isn't about ruining fun - it's about enhancing performance. Our brains are at the peak of their development during our teens and youth, and yet culture demands that we spend our social time by imbibing alcohol to excessive amounts, therefore limiting the potential that we can achieve during this crucial time in our lives. Alcohol can be a swift way to drown our sorrows and provide respite during tougher times. But this temporary salve does not address the underlying issues in our lives. We can only heal for good if we ask the tough questions and do the inner work. Many are dissuaded from the alcohol-free lifestyle, as a total ban can seem daunting. But the best advice is to start slowly - dip our toes into the water briefly. If we do so, the instant rejuvenating effects can be the most convincing argument. BEST MOMENTS 'It's about performance, it's about connection. It's about doing something that's a bit of a challenge' 'Just as you're evolving, that's a really powerful sub-conscious association' 'As a society we're always looking for the quick fix' 'What we've found is that alcohol causes the problem. It enhances the anxiety or the stress or the depression and then we drink to get out of that which only makes it worse'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Andy Ramage's Previous Appearance On the Show - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission/becoming-the-best-version-of-yourself-with-andy-ra  Andy Ramage - https://andyramage.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Overcoming Adversity And Living With Purpose And Confidence - with Pauline Victoria

In this extraordinary conversation, I had the privilege to chat with Pauline Victoria where we discuss her refusal to live life on the sidelines, despite being born with no legs or arms. This lady hasn’t just defied expectations, she’s rewritten the rule book every step of the way.  Pauline is on a mission to spread hope, having created a magical life for herself full of love and fulfilment. She’s an inspiration to many as she shares her unique power to use the little she was born with to create an opportunity to live a life full of significance and impact!  KEY TAKEAWAYS When a baby is born, it isn't just a life and a responsibility being brought into the world. It is the creation of possibility and potential, and should be treated as such. It's very easy to sit on the sidelines of life and never step forwards. But if we do this, we are compromising something. We are saying to ourselves that we accept second best. It takes faith to realise that no matter our position in life, or the circumstances of our existence, we have the potential and the capacity to bring light into the world. We learn the most valuable lessons through painful experiences. Nothing of quality ever comes from the easy route in life. By putting ourselves through challenges, we grow exponentially stronger. BEST MOMENTS 'There's not just a life that's born, but the potential, the possibility that exists with that baby' 'I had to get comfortable with being uncomfortable' 'I am bigger than my circumstances, and I get to dictate and decide who I am in the face of them' 'There are times in our lives, when our circumstances put us on the sidelines of life, and then there are times we put ourself on the sidelines' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   One Leg Up Productions - https://onelegupproductions.com/MeetMe The Visionaries Summit - https://www.bornwithgreatness.com/thevisionariessummit Small Victories Podcast - https://onelegupproductions.com/Podcast Pauline Victoria - Pauline Victoria | Born to Reflect the Beauty in Each and Every One of You Pauline Victoria Facebook - (1) Pauline Victoria | Facebook Pauline Victoria Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/onelegupproductions/?hl=en  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The 100th Episode - How to ASK The Universe - with Mark Victor Hansen and Crystal Dwyer Hansen

For this extra special edition of the On A Mission Podcast, which here celebrates the incredible milestone of having reached its 100th edition, Ellie is joined by very special returning guests, author Mark Victor Hansen and his wife Crystal. Mark is best known for co-authoring the 'Chicken Soup For The Soul' book series - a phenomenon that has touched and empowered the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world, and which has collectively sold more than 500m copies to date. Mark and Crystal join this celebratory show to talk about their humble beginnings and how they have driven themselves upwards and onwards to world renown through entrepreneurial spirit, how the transference of energy might be the key to our collective futures, how stories are the most powerful way to learn and to teach, and how through questioning everything we grow and progress as a species. KEY TAKEAWAYS Those who are born with the entrepreneurial spirit know that challenge only makes us want to work harder. It's proof that success really does originate in the mind. If we develop a fierce mindset, we can overcome anything. The existence we create for ourselves largely depends on the questions we ask. never be afraid to question every narrative, as without doing so, we cannot hope to change our outcomes. Anyone can be financially successful, but the greatest success comes when we follow the direction of our heart's desire, and make this our mission. Whatever we do in life, if we hope to succeed then we must be consistent, persistent and insistent. When we hit the heights, it does not mean we must stop. It means we now have the means to do it again. BEST MOMENTS 'I've had a phenomenal life and phenomenal prosperity, and everybody can have it in a free enterprise culture' 'Find a problem, fix it, solve it, scale it' 'It's amazing how vastly different outcomes can be when you ask the right questions' 'We are two hearts and one soul' 'We are dedicated to freeing total humanity through comprehensive abundance' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mark & Crystal's Previous Appearance On the Show - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission/questions-the-key-to-life-and-love-with-mark-victo  Mark Victor Hansen - https://www.markvictorhansen.com  Mark Victor Hansen Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markvictorhansen/ Mark Victor Hansen Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/MarkVictorHansenFanPage Mark Victor Hansen Linkedin - https://www.linkedin.com/in/markvhansen/  Mark Victor Hansen Twitter - https://twitter.com/MarkVHansen Crystal Dwyer Hansen - https://www.crystalvisionlife.com/  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Ellie McKay Live At Expert Empires: How To Build A Personal Brand

Ellie made an incredible appearance at a recent Expert Empires event, in which she related to a live audience the story behind her amazing ascent from the depths of despair to the heights of success - of how she turned a desperate situation into a life of prosperity and triumph. It's a story that has been greatly empowered by the development of Ellie's now unmistakable personal brand. In this very special episode of the On A Mission podcast, Ellie proudly presents this exclusive address on how to build your personal brand - why it matters, and the ways in which it can change your life. KEY TAKEAWAYS You're a marketer first and everything else second, no matter what your chosen sector might be. It's not what you know, or who you know - it's who knows you. Without the right mindset, we are building the foundations of our success upon sand. Your business can only grow at the same rate that you do. You do not need a track record in order to get started. Many believe that a social legacy is necessary in order to build a brand, but this isn't the case. It doesn't take long to become an authority in your sector and become a key person of influence. Building a brand is a job in its own right, and it should be. Without doing so, we cannot hope to achieve the same levels of connection with others, which results in more leads, enquiries or collaboration.  BEST MOMENTS 'Success is about so much more than money in the bank' 'So many people treat building a brand as an inconvenient bolt-on to the real work' 'I chose to step the f**k up!' 'Building a personal brand has been, without doubt, the one thing that I can attribute to the success we've had to date' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Education System Is Broken - with Lee Jenkins

Our school systems are broken. That is the belief of today's guest who believes education is not a one size fits all process and our current system often puts more emphasis on test scores than on learning itself.  In this episode, I’m joined by Lee Jenkins, a thought leader, international speaker and author, who is truly passionate about maintaining the love of learning that children have from a young age, which is unfortunately not always supported effectively by the current system of governance. As a Mum, this is a subject close to my heart and it was refreshing to hear Lee talk about the pioneering ways in which he is helping to revolutionise the learning space for children, and how we can rapidly accelerate the potential of children by harnessing their intrinsic motivation to learn. KEY TAKEAWAYS Philanthropy doesn't always have to cost exorbitant amounts of money. We can make meaningful differences to people's lives simply through dedicating ourselves to helping them in any way that we can. The person with the most control over education (and the way we are essentially raised to be a member of society) was the person who invented regular testing in a school environment. This has led to many children not needing to learn comprehensively on a subject, but merely for the required sections during testing. Instead of insisting that teachers should instil motivation to learn, they should instead try to maintain the children's already natural state of curiosity and motivation to learn. The system proposed by Lee Jenkins involves a structure consisting of a mapped out plan to learn for the year ahead, punctuated by non-graded quizzes upon not what has been learned, but for the year entire. This method begins by proving challenging for the children, but gradually their quiz scores grow better as their knowledge accumulates. BEST MOMENTS 'It's not expensive - it's a mindset' 'My work in education is entirely on continuous improvement' 'Kids are born motivated to learn' 'There's a kid who comes to us with a battery - it's called intrinsic motivation. And we have to think about everything we can do to keep the battery charged, and if it's lost, to recharge it' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Lee Jenkins Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/LeeJenkinsPerfectSchool Lee Jenkins LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/leejenkins/?originalSubdomain=ca  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Business Of Family And Billion Dollar Enterprises - with Mitzi Perdue

Mitzi Perdue is one of the most widely-respected business minds in the world, having gained her experience through her family-founded empire of Sheraton Hotels, her late husband's poultry empire, and having herself founded one of the largest suppliers of wine grapes in California. She is also the author of 27 books, including '10 Ways To Nurture Family Cohesiveness', 'Four Lessons Your Family Business Can Learn From A Homeless Shelter' and '52 Items To Keep That You May Not Have Thought About'. Mitzi joins Ellie to talk about not just her incredible journey through the world of business and the founding principles that have kept her family business at the height of success for the past century, but also her outstanding philanthropic work, including her fight against human trafficking. It's a conversation that displays the importance of placing the human experience at the heart of not just business, but life, by serving others we truly achieve success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Just because we have money does not mean that we need to be wasteful. Frugality is a pursuit in life that should be admired. The greatest leaders amongst us are the ones who empower their people and trust them to deliver on the skills they have acquired. This provides a sense of responsibility and pride. When we find ourselves in a position of privilege, it becomes essential for us to give something back. We can make the lives of others better by simply acting with kindness, compassion and generosity. The depth of our relationships with people is defined by not just the amount we say to someone, but by the questions we ask and how much we listen to what they are saying. The route to true engagement is to listen to the words of others. BEST MOMENTS 'People have a compulsion to live up to, or down to, your expectations' 'We admire frugality. We admire being ecological' 'A leader's job is to give people a better vision of themselves' 'It's absolutely essential that you give back in every way that you possibly can' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Text GIVE to 55312 (Red Cross Give Blood) – show Mitzi proof to get a free PDF of her book!

Turning Your Pain Into Your Purpose - with Billy Schwer

In this episode, I’m going the distance with former British, Commonwealth, European, and World Boxing champion, Billy Schwer.  Billy speaks about the difficulties of his boxing journey and the lessons he learned from getting to the top of his profession and then losing it all. In this candid interview, Billy talks openly about his struggle to transition from a sportsman into the business world as he felt like he no longer had an identity after retiring from the sport that he had dedicated so much of his life to.  From the brink of suicide, Billy started to discover his true life’s purpose as he embarked on a crazy journey of self-discovery where he learnt how to turn the pain of his past into the purpose behind his future. Now a motivational speaker, author and an elite performance coach living his best life, this conversation is as energetic as 12 rounds in the boxing ring as Billy and I go deep down the rabbit hole of consciousness, MDMA therapy and everything in between. KEY TAKEAWAYS Wealth and the material possessions we gain through a successful life are not the metric we should judge ourselves upon, but simply a metric. Trust in yourself and keep pushing yourself. Failure is the courage to pursue what it is you really want. Every setback is a learning experience. Billy’s whole life has been founded upon the drive to prove his worth, and to show the world that he is strong enough to take anything on. This is a belief that he tries to instil now into those he coaches. Time and perspective have allowed Billy to realise that he spent the first part of his life fighting and pushing himself in order to achieve his goals. It is only when he reached them, that he came to the understanding that the journey itself was the important part. BEST MOMENTS ‘It's about inner peace. In order to do my mission, that starts from within' 'I'm on a mission - the transformation of the middle-aged man' 'I believe there's always a reason why we do the things we do' 'I decided that no one was ever going to beat me, dominate me, hurt me or get on top of me ever again' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Billy Schwer - https://www.billyschwer.com Billy Schwer Twitter - https://twitter.com/billyschwer Billy Schwer LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/billy-schwer/?originalSubdomain=uk Billy Schwer Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/billyschwer1  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Miracles Are Created On The Other Side Of Fear - with Jeff Mask

In this episode, it was a pleasure to chat with business legend Jeff Mask. After growing a software company from $2,000,000 to over $100,000,000 in valuation, and carving out a career as one of the world's most successful investors and acquisitions experts, Jeff turned his attention towards helping high-performance executives to achieve incredible results.  After watching his wife and son hover between life and death, and then beating a cancer diagnosis, there have certain events that have undoubtedly changed the trajectory of Jeff’s life. His story is one of resilience, willpower and strength, which he has used to build four founding principles that he refers to as the "foundational pillars of life" - mindset, action, spirituality and kindness. In this remarkable conversation, we talk about the ways in which we can harness these attributes to overcome the challenges, correct our course in life, and achieve outstanding success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Often the most valuable lessons in life are taught to us during the greatest of challenges. In Jeff's case, he was forced to face the reality of life alone during a critical medical emergency, but this shock helped him to gain a new perspective on life, and follow a different path. Legacies are what we create when we take back control and realise that our contributions to the world really matter. We can follow a passive course, or we can choose to make a difference. Success should never be marked by the amount of money we have in the bank. True wealth comes from our level of fulfilment in life, and this often comes through the relationships we build and the kindness we engender. If you have something the world needs, you have a mission. If you have something you love, that's a vocation. If you have something you're paid for, you're good at, but you don't necessarily love, then you have a profession. If you have something you're good at and that the world needs, then this is a passion. When you put all four together, this is a purpose. BEST MOMENTS  'Now when anything frustrating happens, it's not a big deal because I remember the feeling of loneliness and darkness' 'I wanted to be part of a bigger purpose' 'That's where miracles are created - on the other side of fear' 'There is success that we define by wealth, esteem and status, and then there's success of true peace and happiness and joy that's enduring and sustainable' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Jeff Mask - https://www.jeffmask.com/  Jeff Mask Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/jeff.mask Jeff Mask LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffmask Jeff Mask Instagram - https://instagram.com/jeffmask?utm_medium=copy_link ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Breaking All The Stereotypes - with Kal Kandola

Kal Kandola is an absolute powerhouse in the UK property scene. She is the Co-Founder and CEO of Prosperity Group Global and has seen to the building of Eco Homes around the UK as well as amassing an impressive property portfolio and establishing herself as one of the country's foremost property experts. In this episode, we get an insight into the real women behind all the success as Kal shares the highs and lows of her incredible property journey so far, including her many adventures. Despite the challenges, she rose up to defeat the odds and had worked to not only build her empire but also to break down stereotypes wherever possible. KEY TAKEAWAYS When working with incoming refugees who require housing, it is not enough to simply provide functional living spaces. There are also a host of cultural differences that must be overcome. Helping others is about putting yourself out there and exceeding expectations wherever possible, the rewards don't just come through payment, but also through the experience you gain while completing the tasks. We are far more aware of our capabilities and possibilities than other people. Never accept the judgment of others when it comes to what we can achieve. The power to succeed is in your hands. The key to generating not just wealth, but a legacy, is to ensure that we establish investments that provide passive income. They may not always seem important or grand, but they form the bedrock of our financial security and future. BEST MOMENTS 'I was almost doing a mentoring programme without realising that's what I was doing' 'I wasn't like your average high street mortgage broker. For me it was about "Okay, what can I do to actually help you with this?' 'I said no, that's your opinion. I'm not accepting that!' 'If we're going to do something, we need to do something different' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Kal Kandola LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/★-kal-kandola-★-51a27093/?originalSubdomain=uk Out The Box Consulting - https://www.otbconsulting.org/ ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

A Story Of Extraordinary Resilience And Survival - with Tony Courtney Brown

In this episode, I’m on a mission with Tony Courtney Brown, founder of Bio-Resonance clinic who shares his incredible story, including some truly traumatic events that eventually led to severe mental health issues.  In this candid interview, Tony discusses how he got through those tough times and managed to get his life back on track, going from being homeless and suicidal to use the learnings from his adversity to build a successful business that focuses on natural therapies and a more holistic approach that is often at odds with the conventional medical narrative. KEY TAKEAWAYS Life can prove so challenging at times, that we must enter a state of self-desensitisation - a form of self-protection that removes our emotional connection in order to ensure our survival. Society tends to only care effectively for those who need help least. Those who are impaired and cast down by life, are generally the ones who do not receive the help. We all have the power to motivate and inspire through our actions. In Tony's case, the appearance of guardian angels throughout his life, have served to affirm that human beings, at their core, all have the potential to do great things. In recent times, there has been an unfortunate surge in depression levels for young adults. This has had an effect on not just the youngsters themselves, but also their parents, who do not always know which course of remedial action to take. BEST MOMENTS 'Because it was brutal at times, I desensitised myself to it - it was the only way to get through' 'You view society completely differently from that position when you see how things operate' 'Until you have that direct contact, it's hard to fathom just how little support there is' 'What has happened over the past couple of years has made a huge impact on what I'm doing now' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Tony Courtney Brown LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/tony-courtney-brown/?locale=es_ES Tony Courtney Brown Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/tonycourtney.brown Total Body Health - www.total-body-health.com  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Fitness, Business And The Troubles - with MJ Lennon

There is no denying MJ Lennon is a man on a mission. He left school at 15 years old with no qualifications and a bleak outlook ahead. The world around him was an unstable one, as MJ grew up amid the violence and turmoil in Northern Ireland during the troubles there. But through the sheer drive, determination and a will to succeed, he took back control of the path ahead and has since established himself as one of the UK's most successful fitness entrepreneurs, founding the highly successful Hybrid Fitness and Elite Fitness and Performance Academy empires which are taking global by helping aspiring entrepreneurs to achieve their own goals in business. We talk about how MJ has helped to raise others up, as well as the history of the places in which he grew up and how it has affected him, the ways in which he fought back against the predetermined path he seemed to be on in his young life in order to take back the reins of his own destiny, and the powerful story of how understanding the lessons of the past can help to shape a better tomorrow. KEY TAKEAWAYS A strange fact about life is that sometimes we are so caught up in a tribulation or challenge, that we don not recognise it due to our perspective at the time. For MJ, being caught up in the Northern Irish troubles in his youth was not as apparent as it is to him today. For him, the troubles were a part of everyday life. The media only present the version of the news that causes the most sensation. This drip-feeding of skewed viewpoints has led to a deep mistrust between the public and those who provide the news. Healing can only come through mutual understanding of all perspectives. Those who challenge us are doing so because they have a purpose. Only be truly understanding this purpose can we hope to resolve conflict. In life, we often do not realise when we are making positive impact, or changing the world in our own small ways. It is only when we look back, with the perspective of experience, that we can see the roads we have taken and the lives we have changed. BEST MOMENTS 'As you walked through my home, you were basically going through a checkpoint - a warzone' 'Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it' 'When we come from a mindset of "You are right and I'm wrong", we're not moving forward' 'Everything was meant to be'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   MJ Lennon - https://mjlennon.net MJ Lennon Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/michael.lennon.313  MJ Lennon Instagram - https://instagram.com/m_j_lennon?utm_medium=copy_link MJ Lennon LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-john-lennon-3a0414153/?originalSubdomain=uk  Dr. John Demartini's Appearance On The Show - John Demartini Interview - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission/mastering-life-and-destiny-with-dr-john-demartini ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

A Millionaires Fight Back Against The Effects Of The Plandemic - with Neville Wright

Neville Wright is a self-made millionaire, mentor, motivational speaker, and author of the incredible book 'The Answer Is Yes. Now, What Is The Question' - the inspirational story of how he turned 37 pence into an empire worth over £100,000,000! In this hard-hitting conversation, Neville talks about his reaction to, and the lingering effects of the pandemic and its resultant lockdowns. In this, no holds barred episode, Neville shares how the landscape of society has changed now that the government have been given such an unprecedented level of control over our lives, and why this is a dangerous moment in terms of preserving our freedoms. An unmissable episode where we discuss the importance of being able to pivot and why ALL entrepreneurs and businesses owners need to seek opportunities in the chaos to take control of their own financial destiny.  KEY TAKEAWAYS The pandemic hit in 2020, and lockdowns were enforced across the world. However, the effects of these upon our nature as humans has yet to be calculated. They have had a devastating effect upon our mental wellbeing, as well as our ability to function as a society. War has been declared on our way of life. This is not a war that takes its toll physically, but one that attacks the mind. We have been conditioned, over the past years, to follow and obey. Only by questioning the narrative can we hope to achieve victory. Entrepreneurs are encouraged to think differently and to challenge the narratives we're fed. But as time has gone on, even these thinkers have been consumed by the false narratives. The vaccination programme has been sent out into the world on a wave of big pharma propaganda. Not only has it had devastating effects on our physical health, it has also engendered mistrust in any future vaccine requirements. BEST MOMENTS 'I felt like a prisoner, and yet I had no three meals a day and no exercise yard' 'This is a plan-demic, not a pandemic' 'This is a mental war' 'If something's going around, and if you catch it you have a 99.7% chance of surviving, then why would you put something in your body for that 0.03%?'

Failure Is Never An Option - with Spencer Lodge

Not your typical working-class kid.  Spencer Lodge has come from nothing to become an internationally recognised author, speaker and business leader with over three decades of experience building startups across the world into 9 figure organisations. Spencer has also created an award-winning podcast with some epic guests including Tony Robbins but it’s been far from an easy climb to the top.  In this special episode, Spencer talks candidly about hitting rock bottom and why he has never been able to fully bounce back from his darkest moment despite achieving extraordinary levels of success. A brutally honest interview and a fantastic insight!  KEY TAKEAWAYS When people experience great pain or challenge it can provide a turning point in life. The desire to never again feel that pain forces them to re-evaluate and realign their journey going forward, leading them to new opportunities. Many assume that wealth equals success, but when we attach our identity to a certain path in life, that way of life becomes far more important than the temporary rewards it can bring. We often make the mistake of thinking that our life partners are there to be our counsellors, and that their duty is to bring us back from darkness. We cannot hope to live our lives through others. Our partners have their own lives, interests, passions and pursuits. When we overcome the most challenging of experiences in life, we should use the platforms we have to help others to overcome their own demons. Resilience inspires resilience.  BEST MOMENTS 'This could be a catalyst - an experience to lean into to find strength' 'The greatest revenge is massive success' 'Rejection is part of success and you have to embrace it' 'Progress needs to be made' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Spencer Lodge - https://spencerlodge.tv Spencer Lodge LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/spencerlodge/?originalSubdomain=uk  Spencer Lodge Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/spencer.lodge/?hl=en  Spencer Lodge Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/spencerlodgeofficial  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How I Reversed My Multiple Sclerosis - with Darren Fields

Darren Fields is the regional vice-president of the software giant, Citrix, as well as a savvy investor but in 2012 his world came crashing down when he received some life-changing news. Like his Mother before, Darren was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative disease with a commonly bleak outlook for its sufferers. Darren shares how he went against conventional medical wisdom to explore an alternative treatment despite being strongly advised against it by his medical team. His relentless pursuit for answers has helped Darren to overcome the disease completely and become completely symptom-free.   In this incredible episode, Darren shares a story of resilience, hope and ultimately triumph which is why he is now on a mission to make more people know about this life-saving treatment.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Everyone's MS can affect in different ways. For some it is far more debilitating issue that is exacerbated by other afflictions. Self-investigation can sometimes lead to new forms of treatment. Darren personally discovered the benefits of stem-cell transplants through inquiry. Practitioners in MS treatment seem to be unfortunately led by pharmaceutical companies. These companies supply drugs and insist on their use, despite their sometimes lack of efficacy. Never be afraid to ask your own questions, or do your own research. No one will be as proactive about your cure as yourself. The world is filled with knowledge and solutions. To beat the odds, sometimes we must find them for ourselves. BEST MOMENTS 'If you've got a kitchen and it's on fire, you don't try to redecorate that kitchen when you haven't put the fire out' 'I investigated and found that the results are good' 'I had to find out by research and asking questions, because no one would tell me' 'People are getting impacted because of lack of funding and lack of resource' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Darren Fields Email - [email protected]  Darren Fields LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/darrenfields/?originalSubdomain=uk HSCT Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/ukhsct/?ref=share  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

One Year, No Beer and Beyond - with Andy Ramage

“Quitting alcohol isn't just for alcoholics.” Like many of us, Andy was what he called a “middle lane” drinker. As someone who was always out entertaining or travelling the world, alcohol just became ingrained into his way of being. Something that was just part of the culture!  From the outside, Andy had it all but despite the external success, he felt empty and lacking. It was great to hear first-hand Andy’s journey of self-realisation which is an ever-evolving quest to live life to the max!  After achieving financial success with his financial brokerage, Andy gave it all up to co-founded the OneYearNoBeer movement, which has now helped over 100,000 people transform their relationship with alcohol.  Since then Andy has written two books ‘The 28-day alcohol-free challenge’ & ‘Let’s Do This! How to use motivational psychology to change your habits for life’, and delivered a brilliant TEDx talk titled, ‘The pill will make you limitless’. For anyone that may be considering doing something similar, hearing how Andy has completely transformed his life may just give you the push that you need. It was relevant to me on a personal level having committed to giving up the beloved red wine for the year of 2022 👊. KEY TAKEAWAYS Many assume that natural talent and ability are the elements that set the great apart from the good. The truth is that the great ones all put in extra levels of work. Self-development is the key to lasting success. Knowledge is power. Reading the stories of others, being inspired by the lessons learned through challenges can serve to ignite the fires within us when it matters. The pivotal moments in life come through developing self-awareness. If we can take a look at our lives and see where unhappiness is bleeding in, then we can take the necessary steps to repair. Many people are trapped in the "middle lane" of drinking - regular, small amounts that "take the edge off the day". It may not seem excessive, but cumulatively, it holds you back. BEST MOMENTS 'Technically, I was like Bambi on ice!' 'I remember saying "I'm going to prove them wrong' 'If that's my destiny, if that's my path, then what are we all doing?' 'Drinking is like Kryptonite in your back pack' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Andy Ramage - https://andyramage.com/about-andy/ Andy Ramage Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/AndyRamageOfficial Andy Ramage Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/andyramageofficial/ ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Find Your Niche, Focus On Your Vision, And Be The Best - with Gary Ashworth

Inspiration comes from the most unlikely places.  In this episode, I’m on a mission with business legend Gary Ashworth, business adviser and executive coach, acquisitions expert, author and award-winning theatre producer.  Gary’s interest in the intersection of The Arts and business offers a unique perspective on how creativity can help drive innovation which completely debunks the notion that we are either left-brained or right-brained. Gary believes if more people embraced their inner creativity and had more fun, it would unlock more possibilities to drive their business forward. From successfully leading a public to private hostile bid to selling a PLC on the stock market for 10X the float price, Gary has seen and learnt a lot over the last 30+ years, especially through the challenging times. Despite his own financial success, Gary explains why money is not the be-all-and-end-all as he gives a frank insight through his own journey to success. An unmistakable episode. KEY TAKEAWAYS The three questions that every entrepreneur needs to ask are how much does it cost, how much will it make and how long will it take? When we set out in business, it's always wise to ensure that we have our endgame planned and in mind. Far too many in business meander through their journey just trying to stay afloat, when working towards a hard objective in the long term will always bring richer rewards. You'll never get anywhere fast if you don't take risks. Every action has a consequence, and there are always excuses to shy away from what's difficult. But the key is to manage risk and embrace it. This is the secret to accelerating growth. There is no shame in admitting we're not so strong when it comes to some areas of business. The key is to focus on the areas in which we are strong and leverage the skills of others to bolster our weaknesses. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm an example of how an ordinary bloke can learn to do business reasonably well' 'Begin with the end in mind' 'You've got to manage risk and embrace it' 'Be great in your niche!'

For Humanity To Survive We Must Protect Freedom - with Dr. Kat Lindley

This week I’m on a mission with Dr. Kat Lindley, a Croatian-born, American-trained family physician who firmly believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  For humanity to survive, freedom of thought and speech are essential. Kat knows first-hand what it’s like to live under an oppressive communist regime which is why she has fiercely defended our human rights since the outbreak of the COVID pandemic.  Dr. Lindley is a phenomenal lady who has cast aside her own interests to stand up for what she believes in and it was a privilege to have her on the show.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Within governmental regimes around the world, freedoms are restricted to such an extent that entire societies know no better. We must never take freedom for granted and must do all we can to make sure that others feel that sense of freedom too. The restrictions of freedoms have always played out in the same way through history. Governments promote fear, then isolation, then the promise of being saved. Through these means they begin to exert control. The terrifying result of the pandemic has not been so much the vaccine itself, but the mandates surrounding them. To command someone to take medicine goes against every freedom we have. Despite the abundance of evidence to show that big pharma and governmental influence are corrupt, we are seeing unprecedented levels of compliance from people around the world when it comes to medical advice and restrictions on freedoms. We need to stand up and question the narrative. BEST MOMENTS 'It was a dark time in our history and I'm so glad it is over for all of us' 'I was seeing directives that were not making sense' 'What happens is they make you fear something, then they isolate you' 'This isn't about the virus. This is about something else' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr. Kat Lindley - https://www.katlindleydo.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Unspoken Truth About Your Health - with Louise Westra

Health is wealth!  In this episode, I’m on a mission with Louise Westra, an award-winning online Naturopath and Health Coach, and best selling author who is passionate about helping women to harness their biology to create the health & resilience they need to live their best lives.  We need to stop settling for mediocracy when it comes to our health. Building up our natural immunity and taking responsibility for our own life choices has never been more relevant with many people harbouring a deep mistrust for the pharmaceutical industry. In this frank chat, Louise’s passion and expertise make for an unmissable episode.  KEY TAKEAWAYS The job of a naturopath is to work alongside the accepted guidelines for health, and dig deeper to determine how well a person's body, mind and spirit is truly operating. There is a huge gulf of misunderstanding between what is normal when it comes to health, and what is common. Many seek the advice of contemporaries, and simply because their circumstances dictate a certain health route, we take it to mean that this is normal. The way that we feel, think, the actions we take and the behaviours we exhibit, are as much driven by our biology as they are by our brains and minds. Keeping on top of our health is not just a matter of diet or physical attributes. It is a more holistic approach that takes in all input - from the food we eat to the company we keep, the music we listen to, and especially the media we consume. BEST MOMENTS 'There is a recognition that ultimately we are all responsible for our own health' 'We have a misunderstanding between what's normal and what's common' 'We are miracles - we are supernovas wrapped up in a physical flesh and bone vehicle' 'The more we activate our negativity, that tends to broaden and build more of those cascades' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Louise Westra - https://www.louisewestra.com Louise Westra Instagram - https://instagram.com/louisewestrahealth?utm_medium=copy_link  Louise Westra Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/louisewestrahealthmastery/  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

You're One Choice Away From Change - with Brendon Watt

Brendon Watt has an outrageous demand for an ever-expanding life and a tenacious desire to change the world. As an international best selling author and leading facilitator with Access Consciousness, a global empowerment company in 176 countries, he inspires thousands of people to know they are just one choice away from change. In this extremely raw episode, Brendon tells us how he has recently overcome his own battle with alcohol addiction and the profound impact his journey has had on himself and others. Not everyone has their sh!t together all of the time and that can seem magnified when you’re in the public eye however we can all choose to create a brighter future!  An honest and inspirational conversation that I’d like to invite you all to listen to.  KEY TAKEAWAYS When we are at our lowest, we are often at our most receptive when it comes to solutions. In Brendon's case, life was keeping him down, and he was at his lowest ever. Only then did he discover Access Consciousness. The art of "being" is in recognising that we must work on ourselves, but also that we must seek to help others whenever possible. We often look to the external when we shape the course of our lives, but we overlook the fact that the best source for this shaping comes from within us. We must trust ourselves. While guidance from others might sound far-fetched, so long as it sparks curiosity within us, then it has provided a positive impact. BEST MOMENTS 'What if nothing outside of you was the source for creating your life?' 'My life took a turn right there - I got that glimmer of hope back again' 'I'd like to be able to know that we can create possibilities' 'If someone needed me I'd be there in a heartbeat' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Brendon Watt - https://www.brendonwatt.com Access Consciousness - https://www.accessconsciousness.com/en Brendon Watt Instagram - https://instagram.com/accessbrendonwatt?utm_medium=copy_link Brendon Watt Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/brendonwattcfmw ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Embracing Change To Achieve Life On Your Own Terms - with Mark Stokes

With over 30 years experience as a property developer, mentor, author and business investor, there is no denying this weeks guest Mark Stokes is a man on a mission. Mark’s strong passion for creating shared value and inspiring others to achieve success made for a phenomenal interview.  In this episode, Mark joins me to talk about how keeping an open mind can lead to more opportunities, how he transitioned from corporate life to a more fruitful way of living on his own terms, and how by connecting the power of the mind to the power of the body, we can achieve far more than we may expect. KEY TAKEAWAYS Opportunity comes from keeping an open mind. Those who never say no find that their paths are diverted in far more interesting ways when it comes to life. The road to happiness and fulfilment often comes at the cost of making hard choices, but the legacies we achieve from doing so are life-changing. By connecting the power of the body to the power of the mind, we can often reach higher, push harder, and achieve far more in life and in business than we would expect of ourselves. We often take our knowledge base for granted, when in reality, if we look back across our experience so far, the skill sets and talents we have quietly acquired have empowered us in all kinds of incredible ways. BEST MOMENTS 'Change has been my constant for the last thirty years’ 'I was blessed with a huge amount of opportunity, and I guess that's because I learned never to say "no"' 'What is it that pushes you towards that next level?' 'You need to recognise the huge amount of skills that you've curated and nurtured over the years'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mark Stokes Website - https://www.equagroup.co.uk/  Mark Stokes LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-stokes/?originalSubdomain=uk  Mark Stokes Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/markstokes.stokes  Mark Stokes Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markstokes.stokes/?hl=en  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Mack is back but this time it’s to talk about his other great passion, cryptocurrency! Some of you may remember from the first episode that Ken has raised himself up from humble beginnings to become a global leader in mergers and acquisition but on this episode, we are here to exclusively talk about the volatile yet highly lucrative world of crypto.  We cover everything from how to invest effectively, to how crypto can be leveraged in order to allow you to attain the lifestyle you've always dreamed about so make sure you don’t miss it!  KEY TAKEAWAYS If invested in effectively, cryptocurrency is more than capable of providing investors with the kind of passive income that can completely change your life, allowing for you to live and work remotely. In 2024 it will become twice as difficult for Bitcoin miners to mine one Bitcoin due to the complex mathematical problems required as they become more scarce. This means that profits will be cut in two, leading to a kind of deflation. Traditional banking systems are built in order to obscure the truth about what really goes on with our money. Cryptocurrency and blockchain are the future, and allow for a far more transparent form of investing. Many view Bitcoin as a kind of fictitious currency, or used in criminal endeavour. But cryptocurrency is completely transparent - the blockchain means that its use as criminal currency is all but prohibitive - plus forward thinking economies such as Dubai, now allow purchases such as property sales in Bitcoin, which is only legitimising it. BEST MOMENTS 'As time has gone on, looking more into Bitcoin, I believe that it's mathematically programmed to be worth more and more and more' 'With banks you don't have freedom and you don't have transparency' 'It's basically like a crystal ball that allows you to look into Bitcoin and see all of the different movements' 'When you work with a bank, you have to trust in the bank. When you're working with Bitcoin, it's trustless' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mack Club - www.mackclub.com Ken Mack - https://www.kenmack.com/ Ken Mack Instagram - https://instagram.com/kenmackshow?utm_medium=copy_link Ken Mack LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/kenmackofficial/?originalSubdomain=uk Ken Mack Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/iamkenmack ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Survive And Thrive During a Global Pandemic - with Dr. Dain Heer

We had so much fun the first time round that we simply HAD to do it again. It was a pleasure to be rejoined by the fabulous Dr Dain, internationally renowned author, speaker, and facilitator of consciousness and change for over 20 years. Last time we shared Dain’s incredible story but this time we have flipped the script!   In our last show, Dain said a work that peaked my interest "plan-demic" and I wanted to get him back on the show to find out exactly what he meant by that!  As someone who has already impacted more than one million lives, Dain shares how we can create the reality that bucks against the given narrative, by developing our own sense of mind strength and reality in order to break free from the control that others seek to exert over our lives. An upbeat, high energy episode, full of practical advice to live life with joy and ease in any circumstances.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Instinct is telling us that something about this health crisis is not quite right. Any level of research will show that it is very likely that the pandemic has been planned, and in many cases perpetuated. Fighting back against the given narrative can never gain us triumph. The only way to truly combat the spoon-fed narrative is to ignore the one we're given and instead live by the one we choose. Altering the way we view the narrative is about gaining mastery over our mind's determination to align with the fear energy being perpetuated by others. We must be willing to consider a different path and possibility, even if it goes against the grain of what the majority are choosing. We are often made to feel as though acute awareness is somehow a negative trait, when in reality, it is simply our innate energy trying to convey warning messages about people. Never be afraid to follow your instincts. You are not being judgmental, but simply aware. BEST MOMENTS 'It's quite clear that this thing has been planned' 'You don't change this reality by fighting against it. You change it be ignoring it and creating your own' 'This is about going beyond your mind. Your mind is what is creating the fear' 'If we acknowledge the rattlesnake for what it is then we know how to handle the rattlesnake when it's in front of us'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr. Dain Heer - https://drdainheer.com David Martin presentation - https://rumble.com/vp656a-dr.-david-martin-who-they-are-the-names-and-faces-of-the-people-who-are-kil.html The Clearing Statement - https://www.accessconsciousness.com/theclearingstatement 14-day Program with Dr. Dain Heer - https://drdainheer.com/14/ Dr. Dain Heer's previous appearance on the show: https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission/creating-possibilities-through-accessing-conscious ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Art Of Mindset Coaching - with Heidi Brown

This week I’m on a mission with Heidi Brown, a mindset coach, dedicated to helping people to discover joy, adventure and purpose in their lives. The first 14 years of Heidi’s career were spent building a thriving Chiropractic practice. She loved everything about it; the philosophy, the art, the lifestyle … but her struggles with self-confidence and worth left her feeling hollow and inadequate, no matter what she achieved. We talk about Heidi’s inspirational transformation after she made the bold decision to sell her practice to become a life coach, as she is now fulfilling her mission to help others to find themselves. KEY TAKEAWAYS Rejuvenating our minds, spirits and bodies should take place incrementally, and can be kickstarted by such factors as diet, sleep and hydration. The first step in mindset coaching is acknowledging that something is wrong and that change is needed. Rather than seeing life as some try to overcome, we must look for the beauty in everything, even the smallest of activities. Accountability not only allows us to gain a better perspective on the goals we reach. It also acts as fuel to push on faster towards the next goal. BEST MOMENTS 'I think something magical happens when you are in a new environment' 'That need to achieve, to get approval, to get external validation…that can be immense rocket fuel' 'Life is delightful, as opposed to “right, I’ve gone for a walk to get my 20 minutes exercise in today' 'The simple basic foundations, enough sleep, enough water, good nutrition, you can’t get past those simple pieces to help us feel good' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission  Heidi Brown - https://www.heidibrown.co.uk Heidi Brown Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/heidibrowncoach/?hl=en-gb Heidi Brown Facebook -  https://www.facebook.com/HeidiBrownCoach  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Perform At Your Best When You're Feeling At Your Worst - with Darren Grigas

In this episode, I’m on a mission with British adventurer and endurance athlete Darren Grigas who has pushed himself to the limit by undertaking some of the most extreme challenges around the world. He now inspires others to find their limits and surpass them through delivering his message: "YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO FAST, OR FAR, JUST GO!" Darren regales us with some incredible stories and the ways in which he has upgraded his mindset in order to achieve the impossible. It’s a pleasure to share with you some of the incredible adventures he's experienced, how he turned life's challenges into the fuel that accelerated his personal growth, and how he has used his own journey to inspire the journeys of others. David Goggins has nothing on this guy.  KEY TAKEAWAYS After suffering a physical setback, Darren applied himself to incrementally repairing the damage done, and became stronger than he had ever been before. It shows that with the right mindset we can always come back from the bottom and rise to the pinnacle of success. If our goals are small ones then our progress will be slower. If we aim far higher than we believe we can reach, then the development we achieve through working towards this distant dream will yield far greater results. We often profess that we do not have enough time to work on ourselves, but then waste time on trivial matters. Growth requires discipline. Always set aside time to work on yourself and stick to it. Accountability is the best way of remaining motivated. When others are counting on us, it forces us to keep focused. When the work we do makes others proud, it urges us to do more. BEST MOMENTS  'It was a life-changing moment - I just opened up' 'I want to look back and say that at least I did something great - something epic' 'A massive thing that makes it easier is accountability' 'Even if I only inspire a handful of people to go and do a park run - brilliant!'

The Truth Exposed - with Dr. Peter McCullough

Dr. Peter McCullough is certainly a man on a mission…. Not only is he a world-renowned cardiologist and the most published physician in his field of all time, but Peter’s fierce confrontation of government policy has also made him a figurehead to millions across the world.  Dr. McCullough has been at the forefront of the campaign around the effectiveness of the ‘strategies’ and mandates being employed globally in response to the pandemic.  In this interview we take a deep dive into the details of the certified information that Dr. McCullough has accumulated which raises some alarming questions.  After his recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience caused a huge furore, Peter openly shares his thoughts on the campaign against Spotify that has even seen The White House wade in.  As more and more countries across the world abandon their stringent measures, Peter shares why he believes the narrative is finally starting to crumble!  A truly compelling interview from start to finish! KEY TAKEAWAYS Many of the claims being denounced as misinformation on Joe Rogan's show, have now been widely accepted as fact. People who have been vaccinated can indeed transmit COVID-19, and most data points to certain masks as being ineffective. Certified data from both the medical authorities and the insurance industry show that in people between the ages of 18 and 49, more than 40% are experiencing an upward shift in mortality. While the reasons are not yet fully understood, it is thought that adverse reactions to vaccines are at the heart of it. Myocarditis has become so normalised in the wake of the vaccine programme, that guidelines have been issued by the United Kingdom on how best to manage the new phenomenon. Along with the new conditions being brought to the fore is a disturbing new trend in propaganda. Sponsored advertisements are showing younger people suffering from heart problems, and assurances that other factors in life can lead to detrimental health issues. We must keep looking at the facts and challenging the narrative. BEST MOMENTS 'So many listeners were looking at the same sources of information and coming up with the same conclusions' 'All of this is pointing to very large problems within the vaccine programme' 'I'm a car-carrying epidemiologist and I'm telling you, the vaccines are causing large numbers of deaths' 'Why would anyone want to sustain permanent heart damage as opposed to just having a common cold?'

The Key To Success - with Gary Das

This week I’m on a mission with Gary Das, an entrepreneur, best-selling author, a business mentor, a property investor, and the managing director of an award-winning mortgage brokerage, all while being a devoted husband and father to three young children. In this episode we talk about the tactics he has used in order to build success, the story of how pivoted in business and started all over again, how the power of neurolinguistic programming has helped him to help others, and how greatness can only be achieved through hard work and determination. Another unmissable episode.  KEY TAKEAWAYS If we do not have the support of our loved ones, then business risks become that much more difficult. When our businesses support our families, it becomes a joint effort to make it succeed. When we build a business, we must remember why we are doing it. If we are hoping to achieve a better life for our families and ourselves, then it is crucial to strike a workable life balance so that we do not end up overworking and missing what's truly important. Neurolinguistic programming is a skill set that can greatly benefit sales, but it must be used responsibly and ethically. We must approach it with a sense of wanting to help others to solve the problems they have. There seems to be a belief in the wealth creation space that simply paying a fee will guarantee financial freedom and success. Mentors and coaches can only set you on the road towards your goals, but the work itself must be done by you.  BEST MOMENTS  'When you're both singing from the same hymn sheet, it makes it so much easier to make decisions and keep moving forward' 'When you do NLP, it's almost that pivotal moment' 'I believe that I can help you. I believe that I can solve your problems' 'There is no failure, there's only feedback' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Gary Das - https://garydas.com Gary Das Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/GaryDas/  Gary Das Instagram - https://instagram.com/garydas?utm_medium=copy_link  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Michael Jackson's Millionaire Bodyguard Tells All - with Matt Fiddes

This week I’m on a mission with self-made multi-millionaire Matt Fiddes, a world-renowned martial arts expert who has built a global fitness empire in over 1000 locations and was also Michael Jackson’s personal bodyguard and best friend for over ten years. From a bullied schoolboy to earning £100K a month by the age of 18, Matt went on to travel the world as MJ’s bodyguard and shares some rare insights as to what it was REALLY like within MJ’s inner circle. We have a frank discussion about Michael’s genius, his struggles with fame, the truth behind the controversial child sex abuse allegations and who is really to blame for his untimely death.  Matt’s achievements have seen him honoured at the highest level, after being inducted into the UK Martial Arts Hall of Fame and presented with the prestigious ‘Martial Arts Superstar Award’. But despite his incredible success, the road has not always been an easy one. In this episode, we talk candidly about the struggles he has faced, the challenges he has overcome, and the winning mindset he has attained along the way - one that has enabled Matt to battle back against adversity and come out fighting every time. A truly incredibly story. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes the traditional routes through education and into life, do not fit our character or values, and yet society seems to want to make us conform. We must always try to see the positives, even in dark situations. Matt spent much time being bullied at school, but instead of using the experience to become embittered, Matt recognised that his bully had essentially steered him onto the path to success later in life. The world assumes that the life of Michael Jackson was a charmed one, but the reality of his fame and lifestyle meant that life was extraordinarily difficult, and not at all the jet-setting, glamorous existence that the media has portrayed. When we invest in generational assets, such as property, we create a legacy for the generations that will come after us. Property, in particular, is an asset that continues to generate income throughout life.

Fighting Your Way To Success - The Story Of Ellie McKay

This week, I’m on a very different mission as I find myself interviewed by my good friend and soon to be business partner, Billy Farrell, who is one of the few people who has been up close from day one of this crazy adventure.  For the 75th episode we wanted to do something a bit different so it was my turn to be on the receiving end of the questions. In true Ellie and Billy style, we get deep and meaningful right from the start as Billy probes me for an honest and real insight into the journey.  People look at what we have achieved within a short space of time and think it must of all been plain sailing but I often use the swan analogy. It may look elegant gliding along but what people don’t see is the hard work underneath the surface. It’s been a rollercoaster for sure and I always try and share the lows as well as the highs (maybe too much so) but I’m so proud of what Mark Mckay and I have achieved together whilst also knowing that the best is yet to come.  A real, raw and brutally honest interview.  KEY TAKEAWAYS Those with the biggest dreams and the grandest ambitions, can sometimes feel a sense of isolation. Their dreams do not fit in with what society expects, and it can be a lonely sensation. When our backs are against the wall, we discover just how resilient we truly are. When we overcome challenges that knock us down, it makes us even more determined to succeed. Many in business face up against challenges and find themselves defeated. But perseverance unlocks the lessons behind those obstacles. The definition of success is the attainment of contentment, and the finding of inner peace. Assets and material possessions are nice to have, and can bring pleasure, but the true meaning of success lies far deeper within ourselves. BEST MOMENTS 'Growing up I always wanted to set the world on fire. I always knew there was more' 'It feels just like a part of a story that i tell. I feel detached from it' 'It takes graft, it takes dedication, it takes discipline, a willingness to fail and to endure that failure' 'Success is very objective. it isn't defined by how many assets you've got'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Billy Farrell LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/billyfarrell/?originalSubdomain=uk Billy Farrell Instagram - https://instagram.com/iambillyfarrell?utm_medium=copy_link ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Monetise Your LinkedIn - with Lea Turner

This week I’m on a mission with Lea Turner, otherwise known as the Queen Of LinkedIn. Leah started to harness the power of the platform in October 2019 and now has over 128k engaged followers and over 1000 inbound clients. To say that she’s taken LinkedIn by storm is an understatement!  Her no-nonsense, straight-talking approach has continually challenged the outdated stereotypes around who and what constitutes as a professional and is a breath of fresh air for those of us who follow her content.  True to form, Lea calls it how she sees it throughout the interview and tells us why she doesn’t subscribe to the majority of mainstream personal development, why she won’t be in a hurry to take an ice bath anytime soon and what her plans are for the future.  We talk frankly about how to increase your brand's visibility the RIGHT way by creating an engaged community to grow your leads. This episode is an absolute must for anyone looking to build their online profile from one of the industry’s leading experts KEY TAKEAWAYS Authenticity counts for a great deal. People are drawn to relatability. When we show up as ourselves, and drop the pretences, we come across as far more attractive, and so do our messages. When we reconcile our own pain in life, we take away the power it has over us. When we use the challenges of our past as lessons, that pain becomes a tool to help others. The downside of personal development is that many "mentors" seem to take a one-size-fits-all approach, and use platitudes that do not apply to all people. Mentorship should be a personal experience, and tailored specifically to a person's needs. Communities that thrive and grow are the ones in which the members care not just for the creator, but also each other. Fostering this harmony between members is the role of a true leader. BEST MOMENTS 'I decided that I'm going to do what I do with every other part of my life and be myself' 'It's hugely life-changing for a single mum' 'You take that pain and that suffering and you repurpose it to do something good for other people' 'I like to find my own way' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Lea Turner LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/lea-turner/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Are NFTs legit?– with Siam Kidd

This week I’m on a mission with crypto legend Siam Kidd where we discuss the concept and meaning of cryptocurrency and how he went from being in the RAF pilot to earning £30k a day in passive income from his 7 figure crypto portfolio.  In this unmissable episode, we discuss what the future holds for cryptocurrency, how NFTs work and why 99% of them should be avoided and how a possible stock market crash could be just what we need... For anyone serious about building wealth, this is a must! KEY TAKEAWAYS Crypto can be best described as “magic internet money”. Even traditional currency forms, these days, are simply digital numbers being moved around. Anything has value when a certain critical mass of people believe that it is valuable. Ultimately, the price of anything is what a buyer is willing to pay, but this belief can be influenced. Expect the unexpected when it comes to online trading, password protection and Bitcoin. We are still figuring out the rules, and it is wise to be cautious. Always avoid dodgy websites that have numerous pop-ups as they can leave cookies and trackers on your computer that can compromise your security, and by extension, your crypto wallet. There are pieces of software that can help to protect you.  BEST MOMENTS  'Crypto is the only real monetary sovereignty that humans have ever had.'

Man's Search For Meaning - with Jonathan MacDonald

This week I’m on a mission with Jonathan MacDonald, an award-winning, bestselling author and one of the most in-demand keynote speakers in the world on the topics of change, digital transformation, mindset, innovation, strategy and the future. In what turned out to be one of my favourite episodes we talk about Jonathan’s incredible success as a speaker, and the ways in which he engages with his audiences around the world, how productive paranoia can help us to overcome the challenges of tomorrow, and how the power of mind over body can create meaningful impact. A phenomenal episode. KEY TAKEAWAYS The art of presenting and public speaking remotely is one that many are embracing. it requires a whole new skill-set, but there are some advantages to appearing live on stage. We should never be dismissive of those who are trying to help us. We must encourage those who wish to make positive change in the world. It is essential that we look to the future often, and try to ascertain the advancements of tomorrow, so as to best plan for the ever-changing world. Our bodies can not tell the difference between something that has actually happened to us and something we believe has happened to us. Therefore, if we believe we are ill, our bodies will react accordingly, and if we use thought for healing, our bodies will experience this. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm a fan of looking at what could disrupt you before it disrupts you' 'Productive paranoia is thinking "What could be the disruptive force for what I do?' 'When the winds of change are blowing some build a wall and others build a windmill' 'Our body organises itself around our thoughts' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Jonathan MacDonald - https://jonathanmacdonald.com  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

You Only Have One Shot At This Life - with Craig Schulze

In this episode, I’m on a mission with the inspirational speaker, entrepreneur, business coach and investor Craig Schulze, who specialises in helping people grow to become a market leader in their industry. We discuss Craig’s heartfelt and tragic story of the challenges he faced after losing his first son and what that experience taught him about living a meaningful life. More determined than ever to maximise this, Craig shares how he turned the ultimate pain into something meaningful which has now helped thousands of others in the process.  Living in Melbourne, Australia under the strictest lockdown regime in the western world, we talk candidly about how Craig has managed to keep his vibration high and continue to push forward during these challenging times.  Another unmissable episode. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes skills in business and life can be secondary requirements when it comes to finding success. What matters is the will to succeed. Mentors allow us to see ourselves from another perspective, and provide us with alternative routes towards success. Never discount the power of a constructive opinion. Challenging moments arise from all sides and come unexpectedly. they not only alter our path, but provide a north star when it comes to reconciling new challenges we face. When it comes to making important decisions about our lives, especially in the wake of the pandemic and its effects, it is only sensible to do one's own due diligence and to make the most informed decision we can, based upon what we judge to be right for us. BEST MOMENTS 'Whatever I lacked in business and life skills I made up with dreams, desires and the will to do whatever it takes' 'Life is made of moments and one moment can change your life' 'If I'm going to put my heart and soul into something then it's got to be deep and meaningful to me' 'It's an incredible opportunity for us to reset the world' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Craig Schulze - https://craigschulze.com/index  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Deal With Disappointment - with Dr. Dain Heer

He’s amazing, he’s insightful and he’s certainly a man on a mission.  Dr. Dain is an internationally renowned author, speaker, and facilitator of consciousness and change in 176 different countries but that wasn’t always the case!  As the Co-creator of Access Consciousness, one of the biggest personal development countries in the world, it’s hard to imagine just how much Dain’s life has evolved. With the date already predetermined to take his own life, things could have ended very differently for Dain had it not been for a chance encounter. His personal journey has inspired millions of people which is why Dain has spent over 20 years, inviting people from every culture, country, age, and social strata of society to embrace their true greatness In this time of confusion, when people tend to focus on problems, this high energy interview brings you some fascinating insights as to why true happiness begins with loving yourself and some practical techniques to make that shift in your own life. An unmissable episode!🎙 KEY TAKEAWAYS By incrementally improving ourselves, we also slowly begin to change the world. What makes us lighter adds to the lightness of the world itself. The founder of Access Consciousness discovered 32 points on the head, that if held lightly, dissipates the electromagnetic component of thought and judgement that we have around a particular topic. The way to convince people that there might be more t life, and that accessing a new consciousness could be beneficial, is not to argue, but to demonstrate this potential happiness by living it ourselves. When we ask questions, we open doors to new possibilities. A question is one of the secret keys to creating something different for ourselves. BEST MOMENTS 'It's all about us being us - uniquely us' 'Once I started including myself everything started taking off in a really beautiful way' 'If it feels like this to be alive then I am in!'

Mass Formation Psychosis - with mRNA Vaccine Technology Inventor, Dr. Robert Malone

Dr. Robert Malone the inventor of the mRNA technology has surprisingly become the man at the forefront of the war against the vaccine programme. Three decades ago his work was critical to the creation of modern mRNA vaccines. Today, he’s possibly the single most influential voice criticising the forced use of the vaccines he helped invent.  Recently cancelled from Twitter losing over 500,000 followers, Dr. Malone went on Joe Rogan’s show which has now been downloaded over 50 million times. As one of the world’s premier experts in this space, it was a privilege to have the opportunity to speak about some of the divisive topics that are fracturing our society.   VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr. Robert Malone - https://www.rwmalonemd.com  Brownstone Institute - https://brownstone.org/articles/79-research-studies-affirm-naturally-acquired-immunity-to-covid-19-documented-linked-and-quoted/ ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Intimate Truths - with Tony and Nicki Vee

This week, I’m on a mission with the phenomenal Tony and Nicki Vee, known throughout the world as ‘The Relationship Couple', and the creators of the Couples Intimate Relationship Education Program. We discuss the impactful, powerful work they do which gives light and hope to couples everywhere, the bridge between personal and spiritual development, as well as the personal journeys they have both taken through life in order to arrive at the destination that has made such a difference to themselves and each other. KEY TAKEAWAYS There are two worlds of development - personal and spiritual. Both of these areas can benefit from taking elements of the other and applying it to their own practices. Attuning ourselves spiritually is the key to finding true happiness. We are all emitting and receiving energy, and relationships depend on the compatibility of these energy frequencies. Many with a troubled relationship past bring their baggage to new couplings, hoping that their prospective partners will somehow fix them. But this is flawed, and why the work has to begin internally. The word seems to want to equalise the sexes until men and women become the same entity, but this is not necessarily the most healthy way to embrace our differences. Men and women are fundamentally different, and these differences are a source of joy. BEST MOMENTS  'We feel sometimes that we are the bridge' 'We are all on a journey. We are all learning' 'Magic happens in life when you learn how to change your energy up!'

Do We Choose The Experience Our Trauma Teaches Us? - with Yemi Penn

From homelessness to CEO, the incredibly inspiring journey of Yemi Penn is an empowering way for anyone to kickstart the New Year! A situation only has the meaning that we choose to attach to it which Yemi has demonstrated time and time again. At age seven, she was sexually abused by a family member which she suppressed for decades until she felt worthy enough to heal and communicate her experience. Irrespective of what our pain is, owning it liberates and affirms us which has led to Yemi creating her first documentary titled ‘Did I Choose My Trauma?’.  Having spent a big part of her childhood in Nigeria and being homeless as a single parent to two children, Yemi almost inherited the story that suggested life needed to be a struggle. In her wildest dreams, she couldn’t have imagined that the life she now lives was even possible. Not just the phenomenal level of business success she has achieved but the unique perspective she has adopted not just from philosophy or coaching techniques but from lived experience.  She is absolutely smashing life out of the park speaking on TEDx stages and was recently interviewed by best-selling author, Jack Canfield where she discussed her work in the mindset transformational space.  We go off on MANY tangents with this one, it was an incredible conversation with an incredible lady.

The Undefeated Mind, How To Construct The Indestructible - with Billy Farrell

Going out with a bang!  What better way to see out the year than to chew the fat over a few glasses of wine with one of my favourite people...  It was a pleasure to invite back one of our most popular guests to date, marketing guru, businessman, and investor Billy Farrell. His authentic, bullshit free approach to life and business was such a hit the first time around that a follow up episode was always on the cards. What the listeners might be surprised to know is that at the time of recording that first episode, Billy’s life had literally just exploded. The night before we recorded, his 18 year relationship and marriage had come to an abrupt end, whilst also dealing with various other major life challenges.  Billy talks openly about how he overcame his challenges and vulnerabilities and navigated his way through the storm to have his best year ever, both personally and professionally. It’s been far from easy but he turned the pain into power and completely transformed all areas of his life, including his health. Nothing was off the cards in this interview and I can guarantee for anyone looking to embrace their inner stoic, this episode is a must!  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission TMD Media - https://www.tmdmedia.com Billy Farrell LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/billyfarrell/?originalSubdomain=uk Billy Farrell Instagram - https://instagram.com/iambillyfarrell?utm_medium=copy_link ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Navigate the Impending Storm - with Rob Moore

For the Christmas special of the On a Mission podcast, I’m live with the Disruptive Entrepreneur himself, Rob Moore. Rob was the first-ever guest on the show and as a firm favourite with the listeners, it was a pleasure to have him back to have some straight talk around the pressing matters of today. With further lockdowns looking inevitable and vaccine passports likely to increase to smaller venues, we talk about the impact that is likely to have on small businesses and whether the government should be doing more to provide support. Despite the challenges, there are also lots of opportunities for the entrepreneurs amongst us. Rob shares his insights into the best ways to build and preserve wealth moving into the New Year as well as how he’s 10 X’d his own social media following in 2021.

Success Is How High You Bounce When You Hit Rock Bottom - and with Adam Ashburn

This week I’m on a Mission with Adam Ashburn, marketer extraordinaire, and one of the first members of the incredible Empire companies, having used his marketing skills to raise the company up from a small concern to a seven-figure business. Adam joins me to share his heartfelt and sometimes highly personal story, one that has been beset with challenges but which has now flourished into true success, as well as the techniques that he has developed and used across his business journey - ones that have enabled the Empire group of companies to become some of the most successful in the UK. KEY TAKEAWAYS From a leadership point of view, we attain much more credibility if we have been hands-on when it comes to the different facets of running a business. Many businesses talk about values and beliefs, and how they should be at the heart of the company. But many seem to forget this vital tenet as they grow larger. Values are what set us apart. Marketing is not a static process. Marketing is constantly evolving and must be treated as an organic, bespoke experience every time. It's okay to be down sometimes. We need to give ourselves a break when the challenges get too much. Displaying an emotional response to a situation is not a sign of weakness. BEST MOMENTS 'I started to fall in love with the whole process around growing a business' 'You absolutely do need to roll your sleeves up and just get stuck in' 'Everything we do is filtered through the values' 'Marketing is understanding people well enough so that you can get a message across to them appropriately' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Adam Ashburn LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/adam-ashburn-0a064547/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Question Everything - with Dan Astin-Gregory

It was a pleasure to bring back one of our most popular guests to date, Dan Astin-Gregory, the founder of Elevate MEDIA and host of the Pandemic podcast.  Dan is an entrepreneur, strategist and inspirational thought leader who has impacted the lives of more than 500,000 people from over 90 different countries with his work in human potential, leadership and entrepreneurship. More recently Dan has been in the public limelight for the extensive campaigning he has done to bring us the untold story of the pandemic which has been received by over one million followers.  Despite the backlash, Dan has continually challenged the mainstream narrative and brought fascinating insights from some of the most qualified professionals across the world to challenge the global elite.  Whatever your views are around the Covid-19 narrative, I would encourage everyone to keep an open mind and question everything.  KEY TAKEAWAYS When we remove the more hysterical voices from the COVID conversation, we can begin to have dialogue that is less reactionary and more constructive. Once we give power over our lives to governments, they rarely relinquish that power without a hard fight. We must ensure that we do not trade our freedoms forever in exchange for short term benefits. The key to unifying society is not to place people into silos or boxes. We must listen with empathy and respond with understanding. The solution must come from a place of acceptance, not division. Dehumanisation is occurring in enlightened society now. We have spent generations stating that this level of discrimination will never happen again, but yet we are now experiencing a wholesale embargo upon people's beliefs and feelings. BEST MOMENTS 'There's a level of understanding that we can now garner from two years of data' 'I'm putting the foundation in place for long term change' 'These rights and freedoms are under threat and it's not temporary' 'By empathising, it helps me to gain a greater understanding of how they have come to their perspective and understanding of the world' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dan Astin Gregory Twitter - https://twitter.com/danjgregory Dan Astin Gregory - https://www.danjgregory.com/pandemic/ Dan Astin Gregory LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/danjgregory/ ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Simone talks about the principles of success that she has nurtured, and how it has helped to empower others especially as we navigate through such difficult times.  It’s never too late to reinvent our own path in life, an empowering episode from a phenomenal lady designed for anyone looking to live their best life!  KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes the pathways to where we truly belong in life, can only be shown to us by those with an external perspective Nurturing ourselves is not about following the guidelines and statutes set out by society. It is about listening to the voice inside and feeding the need it's asking for. We constantly ask for certain things in life, and so when the universe grants them to us, we need to recognise that we are being a gift. Embrace and it and see where it takes you. We all stumble and fall. We all trip up sometimes. But when these happen, you can't sit back and hope life will repair itself. You have to take action and keep moving forward.

How To Find The Fuel For Success with Lisa Johnson

This week I’m On a Mission with female porunning a highly successful podcast, and engaging in public speaking.  Lisa isn’t scared to speak her mind and her straight-talking approach to life and business makes her a force to be reckoned with. She’s real, she’s raw and she’s unstoppable! An unmissable episode full of inspiration werhouse and The Queen of Passive Income, Lisa Johnson.  The renowned business strategist came blazing in the scene as she went from £30,000 in debt to profits of multi seven figures in less than four years, as well as. KEY TAKEAWAYS When we find success in life, it can often help if we relate the story of how we achieved it, in the hopes that it might inspire others. By raising others up, we raise ourselves up. Challenge and adversity may feel like setbacks at the time, but they are also the fuel for success - the driving force that pushes us to be better and achieve more. Success is certainly as aspirational thing, and we should always work hard in order to achieve it. But success must never come at the cost of things that make us truly happy.

Empowering Business By Empowering Women - with Lucienne Shakir

In this weeks high energy episode I’m On a Mission with Lucienne Shakir, a visionary coach in the field of female empowerment with a huge vision to improve corporate infrastructures!  A very thought provoking episode where I found myself challenging my own beliefs as we got into some frank discussions. Lucienne has overcome her own adversity to find her voice which she now uses brilliantly to raise others up. We talk into the mindset that’s required when it comes to growing and scaling a business, and so much more. Another fantastic guest with some great insights.  KEY TAKEAWAYS We sometimes feel a lack of confidence when it comes to speaking out for fear that door will close to us. Overcoming this fear takes bravery and resilience, but the rewards can change the landscape for yourself and others. Many new business owners seem to develop a sense of impatience when they come to market, little realising that the journey itself is what matters. Learning to be the best enables you to remain the best when you reach the top. Equality is not necessarily about including everyone. It is also about raising those up who are at the bottom so as to ensure that the scales are balanced. Men have to navigate difficult situations and their own social burdens, but women's issues are entirely different category. Women have to endure far more in the way of challenge, and troublingly these behaviours have become normalised. BEST MOMENTS 'The more I see people like you doing this, the more I feel like I can' 'If you're going to lead then you've got to lead. You've got to push the boundaries' 'There have been a lot of things that have happening in my life that have been down to inequality, that have given me the drive that I need to speak up about this stuff' 'It's my deep inner mission to see more people represented' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Lucienne Coaching - https://www.luciennecoaching.com/blog Lucienne Shakir LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/lucienne-shakir-🌸-med-79505b180/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Supporting Others Through A Focussed Vision - with Rich Liddle

This week I’m on a mission with Rich Liddle who is the veteran of a highly successful career in the military where he was deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria, counting himself as a part of every military conflict the UK has taken part in, since 1998. Rich discusses his transition into business which has proved highly successful, the work he has done to help others through the Supported Living Gateway and eradicating homelessness - missions in life that have proved to be his most challenging and rewarding so far. KEY TAKEAWAYS We must take our financial advice from the best people - those who are further down the road that we wish to travel ourselves. Far too often, the advice sector is crowded with salespeople whose advice is not tailored to the journey we wish for ourselves. Property investing is a marvellous way to build an empire in the background. For Rich, investing was able to take place behind his military career, providing a financial foundation that continued once his military service was complete. As men, we tend to mask our problems for fear of reducing our alpha appeal. Preventing conversations from taking place around our mental health prevents a cure being found. Many today fall into the trap of investing with the aim of getting rich quick. If we remove this component and look to the long term, then the results are far more robust. Investing for life is about changing our mind-set. BEST MOMENTS ‘When somebody says you can't do it, you feel you've got to' 'You want to learn from those who are further ahead on the path that you want to walk' 'It's more important to buy an asset that's going to grow with you for the future' 'It's not about timing the market, it's time in the market'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Rich Liddle Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/rich.liddle/?hl=en Rich Liddle LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/richard-liddle-09649251?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Secrets Of A Born Entrepreneur - with Ann Marie Woodall

This week I’m on a mission with Ann Marie Woodall, the author of 'Secrets Of A High-heeled Healer', and also a healer, success coach and ex-playboy bunny who knows more than most about making the most of life. We talk about her incredible life so far, how she has always nurtured the entrepreneurial spirit inside herself, the true meaning of legacy, the value to be found in being yourself, and how leaps of faith can sometimes lead to a whole new level of understanding. KEY TAKEAWAYS Some people are just born to be entrepreneurs. They are the ones who can look at their lives, or any given situation, and see the opportunities to be had. Legacies should never be judged upon how much money you have in the bank. The true legacies we leave are about the impact we make. People are drawn to others who are more naturally themselves. When we put on masks and fronts, it can be rather obvious, and can seem as though we are hiding something. Being natural and comfortable in our skin is attractive to others. Change sometimes requires an act of bravery in order to take effect. If we become too comfortable then it can be harder to recognise when things aren't right. Leaps of faith lead to new directions. BEST MOMENTS 'It was in-built into me, never to be poor' 'People like people who are normal' 'I thought to myself, there has to be more to life than this' 'You want to start learning about your psyche. I wanted to understand why I did the things I did' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Secrets Of A High-heeled Healer (Amazon) [email protected] ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Self Awareness Leads To Self Improvement - with James Burtt

This week, Ellie is joined by audio entrepreneur and branding strategist, performance coach and iTunes Top 50 podcaster, James Burtt. James talks about his fascinating journey through a musical career and into business, why honesty matters when it comes to putting your message out into the world, the wisdom he's found in the most unlikely places, and why we should always be ready when opportunity arrives. KEY TAKEAWAYS Many people document their wins, but life isn't always about constant victories. Some days you are faced with challenges, and talking about these can prove invaluable to others. Opportunities arise from the most unlikely of places at times. We must never remain closed off to chances to do things differently as the journey can lead to some incredible new places. In business and life, it can be challenging when our partners do not share or understand our visions and goals, as it can produce a friction. When we find ourselves in low places, it is not necessary to have all the answers. All we need to do is make sure we're putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward in some small way. BEST MOMENTS 'What I'm committed to doing is finding what's in it for someone else' 'The first step towards self-improvement is being self-aware' 'It's better to know than to not know' 'Inner grit is a refusal inside you to give up and accept that that is your reality'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Building The Brand - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/building-the-brand-with-james-burtt/id1486826187 James Burtt LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamesburtt/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Be Your Future Self Now - with Dr Benjamin Hardy

Today I’m on a mission with organisational psychologist, multiple best-selling author, prolific blog creator with over 100m views, and father of six, Dr Benjamin Hardy. Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning in self-development books and conflicting information from podcasts but Benjamin has a unique way of cutting through the bullshit and articulating things in a way that really lands!  Amongst other things we talk about the importance of levelling up in life, dealing with trauma and how we can control our reactions to the blows we will inevitably face.  A genuinely unmissable episode for all the high performers amongst us, constantly pushing but not always appreciating. This podcast is a game changer!  KEY TAKEAWAYS All human beings mature over time. We are constantly evolving and growing, but people mature far slower than they could, as they rarely put themselves in positions that demand a swifter upgrade. Trauma formulates within us in the aftermath of emotional pain, and when we frame the experience as a negative, and then isolate the pain by not discussing it. We must have hope for the future and maintain meaning in the present. If we lose hope in the future then the present becomes a prison from which to escape. Many choose addiction or worse in this event. Journaling can give us new perspectives. If we start to measure ourselves and look backwards, we can see the huge changes in our lives, the gains we have made, and provides us with a far more healthy mind-set as a person.  BEST MOMENTS 'I've always been a believer in putting yourself in a position where you're forced to adapt up to a higher degree of demand and responsibility' 'Trauma isn't what happens to you. It's what you hold on the inside in the absence of an empathetic witness' 'Addiction comes from suppressed trauma, and it's because you're keeping secret your painful emotions' 'I started to build hope back in my own future, and that helped me to get traction again in my life'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr Benjamin Hardy - https://benjaminhardy.com Dr Benjamin Hardy LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/benjaminhardy88/  ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Developing The Entrepreneurial Spirit - with Nathan Winch

Today I’m On a Mission with private equity investor and serial entrepreneur Nathan Winch, a man who has skill for seeing the opportunities everywhere as he quietly acquires business after business and takes the world by storm.   Ironically Nathan is beat known for founding Blue Bricks magazine and Preneur Capital which only make up the smallest part of his business empire. We talk about why networking can accelerate our entrepreneurial journey and the challenges he has faced during his incredible rise to success at such a young age. KEY TAKEAWAYS We're often taught that careers, and working for other people, are the only way to carve out a future for ourselves. But the entrepreneurs among us can see the other pathways that serve us far better. Networking is the most powerful way of incentivising people. By attracting the right people and fortifying our teams, we build strength and a foundation for the future. We do not necessarily need to master every area of business, but surround ourselves with those who do, and develop ways in which to lead them. We should never judge potential partners and investors on the money they bring to the table. It's far better to find someone who aligns to your values, than someone with bottomless reserves of cash.  BEST MOMENTS 'I was the kid selling sweets at school' 'This entrepreneurial flair has always been there' 'I was almost like the conductor of the orchestra' 'It's a skill in itself, being able to know who to approach in the first instance' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Nathan Winch YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT85zvJIegPn_ccGKjWlLiQ Nathan Winch LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/nathan-winch-769b7021/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Being The Best Begins With Knowing Yourself Better - with Mike Zeller

This week, I’m On a Mission with Mike Zeller, a serial entrepreneur whose businesses have achieved over $300 million in revenue, a joint venture partner in over twenty businesses, an author, coach, and mentor to many high performing entrepreneurs around the world. Mike talks about the highs and lows of his journey, in which he has lost it all and built it all back once more, his personal mission is to help a million people figure out their own genius, and how by knowing ourselves better we can become the best leaders in the world. KEY TAKEAWAYS We all have genius in side of us, but to bring it out takes special care, and less of a reliance on the system, such as formal education and society in general, which only helps the few to ascend. True power begins inside of us. Until we know ourselves better, we cannot hope to know the world around us. The best leaders invest in knowing themselves better on a day to day basis. We cannot hope to reach our goals if we spend our entire lives in emulating others. We need to be ourselves at all times, for that is the only way to carve out our own unique path in life. We restore and nourish our creative sides by breaking the patterns from time to time - by disrupting the routines and searching for ways to fill the creative banks inside us. BEST MOMENTS 'My mission to help a million people figure out their genius' 'To know thyself is the beginning of all wisdom' 'Be yourself, everybody else is taken' 'We have an obligation to find that space for creativity, for that space of genius' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Mike Zeller - https://mikezeller.com/about/ ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Find Happiness and Fulfilment Through Trusting Yourself - with Adam Roa

The law of attraction was in full force for this one. This week I’m On a Mission with Adam Roa, a musician, poet, filmmaker, performer, coach, speaker and influencer who has done some amazing work.  But that’s not what attracted me to him.  A random video was doing the rounds on social media which I happened to find hilarious and forwarded to a few friends, one of which recognised him as they’d worked together years ago and the rest is history!  Once I’d discovered his name there was no way I wasn’t going to get him on the podcast. The universe made sure of that!  Adam is a great guy with a unique message, we talk about his fascinating journey, what's wrong with the system and how the decision around the vaccination corrupts our creative instincts, the spiritual awakening that shaped his current outlook, and why we may be facing a much more dangerous and insidious pandemic than the one we know about... KEY TAKEAWAYS When people are insecure, they can go one of two directions - they can internalise and never speak their mind, or they can overcompensate with extroversion. We often attach our own happiness to physical possessions, aspirations or achievements. But this practice is often a simple quick fix, a papering over of the cracks, without examining the root cause of the insecurities that have led us to this point. The system is not designed to encourage creativity or free expression. Instead it asks us to merely repeat back facts so that we become conditioned to be good workers and follow rules and norms set out for us by those on high. We are facing a much larger and more dangerous pandemic than COVID. The mental health pandemic is crushing souls and causing misery by instilling beliefs of disillusion and inferiority among people who believe that they cannot conform to society's rules. BEST MOMENTS 'We're made to feel that "If I follow those rules and I'm not happy, then I've done something wrong, and therefore there is something wrong with me"' 'Popularity is a game to some degree' 'It's an extension of the world that I want for myself and everyone else' 'My logical mind said it would be more illogical to believe that this is all coincidence' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Adam Roa - https://adamroa.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Art Of Healing Through Listening - with Dr. Fred Moss

Dr. Fred Moss is an author, podcaster, and a graduate of Northwestern University Medical School and a licensed psychiatrist who has served the mental health industry for nearly four decades. During that time he has consulted patients, practitioners, medical facilities, non-profit organisations, and community groups. Ellie talks to Dr Fred about the ways in which he is challenging the status quo with the phenomenal work he is doing, why he believes so strongly in the power of communication, and why challenging the accepted knowledge and asking questions is the way we can all truly become better. KEY TAKEAWAYS Communication, both speaking and listening, is the bedrock upon which empires are built. If we develop and grow our skills in this crucial field, then we are truly developing our ability to change the world for the better. We cannot always put our behavioural patterns down to some quirk in our personalities, or some medical condition. We must recognise that human beings are complicated machines, and would rather apportion blame to a condition than take responsibility sometimes. We can often fall under the control fo self-perpetuating conditions and use medication as a crutch that does us no good. We must seek to break away from our diagnosis and look internally for the cure. Our children are precious and must be given room to grow and learn without the addition of potentially harmful medicines that do little nurture individuality. Instead of seeking medical remedies first, we should seek to discover where the cause of the problems lie. The saddest thing about the pandemic has been the division that has arisen from proposed methods to move on. We must seek to bring communities back together and work for a fruitful cooperative solution instead of segregation. BEST MOMENTS 'I made it my business to get really good at communicating' 'I became someone who was really committed to making sure that each and every person, worldwide, could know that their voice was heard' 'Under no circumstances am I diminishing the power of the misery of what it is to be alive sometimes' 'You're just a human walking through the world, and as far as I know, you don't know what your next step looks like' 'Living this life is a dream come true' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Welcome To Humanity - https://welcometohumanity.net ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Relationships Are The Highest Form Of Currency - with Liz Baitson

Whether online or offline, relationships count for far more than we may realise, especially when it comes to building a successful property investing journey. No one understands the importance of this better than this week's guest, Liz Baitson, the founder of High Net Connect, designed to facilitate excellent and impactful business, social and philanthropic relationships for high net worth investors. Liz discusses her property journey, the power of building your network, and how by fostering relationships that last, we create a durable foundation upon which to found our property ambitions. KEY TAKEAWAYS Life can easily slip into a routine of living a life on someone else's terms, and falling accidentally into a routine that is not fulfilling. However, we can break the cycle by taking a brave leap towards independence. Even the stinging failures can provide us with lessons that remain invaluable throughout our career. Failure instantly ingrains learnings upon our memory. Do your due diligence before you associate with anyone or partner with people. It's an unfortunate fact of business, but there are many out there who can talk the talk, but until we start transacting, we can't truly see what people are made of. Property events are all opportunities for advancement in some way, but in order to find the truly sought-after individuals, we must look for the events that carry another level of attendees - those looking for high-level, hands-off investment. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm just figuring out who I am, and that's key to figuring out what you wan to do in life' 'There's got be more to life than being a small cog in a massive machine' 'When you're not yourself, you can't access your source power' 'You don't have to be a genius to succeed, but you do have to learn from your mistakes' VALUABLE RESOURCES The Power Of Property  - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission    Liz Baitson LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/liz-baitson-6b703218/?originalSubdomain=uk High Net Connect Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/thehighnetnetwork/ High Net Connect - https://www.highnetconnect.co.uk/ ABOUT THE HOST Ellie is a straight-talking, successful property entrepreneur who passionately believes that everyone has the power within themselves to transform their lives no matter what their situation.

Mastering Life And Destiny - with Dr. John Demartini

Dr. John Demartini, known as the "Godfather Of Personal Development", is a polymath and a world-renowned human behaviour expert, with a four-decade body of work and studies into the human condition that has been described as "an extensive library of wisdom" and "wisdom of the highest and most valuable order". In this very special episode, Ellie is on a mission to get to know the man whose own mission in life has always been to share knowledge and wisdom that empowers the world, enabling all to become masters of their own lives and destinies. KEY TAKEAWAYS Challenges are there to be overcome, with each providing lessons that help us throughout life, and opportunities to show gratitude. Surmounting these obstacles provides fuel for future growth. What we think about ourselves, what we visualise for ourselves, and what we say to ourselves, followed by the actions and directions we take, determine our personal destinies. Prioritising is crucial in self-development. We only have so much time in a day, and so many years of life to enjoy. It is incumbent upon us to make sure that the knowledge we use to feed our minds is of the highest quality. We must ask questions so as to reveal the downsides of what we admire and the upsides of what we despise, and hold ourselves accountable, then we balance the equation and cease to be controlled by the world around us. BEST MOMENTS 'Whatever happens in your life is ultimately on the way, not in the way' 'You have a body, you have a mind, and you have a soul' 'My dream is to make a contribution on the planet' 'The voice and the vision on the inside has got to be louder than all the opinions on the outside' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dr John Demartini - https://drdemartini.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The More You Put Into Life, The More You Get Out - with Dean Kelly

This week, Ellie talks to serial entrepreneur and recruitment specialist, Dean Kelly, who reached the level of multi-millionaire before the age of 30, became CEO of a nine-figure PLC, and who has spent his career in acquisitions and advisory roles for CEOs and government officials. Dean discusses his beginnings in business, why aspirations can help to push us further, the importance of setting goals and how they helped his own journey, and how you can always get more out of life if you work hard for it. KEY TAKEAWAYS We never truly know where life will take us when we are in our youth. We try many things until we find the path that fits the fire within us. Aspiration is not a bad thing. Looking at the achievements and gains of others pushes us to want to do better and to reach those heights for ourselves. The ones who make it are the ones who understand that the more you put into life, the more you get out. they are the ones who have a real fire in their belly, and who aren't afraid to work hard. We can level the world of recruitment by offering a more balanced and weighted approach to hiring that removes the stigmas surrounding seats of learning and takes skills into account, instead of background. BEST MOMENTS 'The way I spoke to compared to the way they spoke was very different...' 'Sometimes in life you have to pivot. You realise that you're going down the wrong avenue and that you're somebody different' 'The more you put in the more you get out' 'I'm on a mission to make recruitment fair' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Dean Kelly LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/deankellyuk/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

How To Build An 8-Figure Property Portfolio - with Sarah McDermott

Ellie is joined by Sarah McDermott, who along with her husband, has in three short years built an eight-figure property portfolio, specialising in high-end exquisite, luxury serviced accommodation. Sarah joins Ellie to discuss her incredible success story, the power of networks and how they can accelerate your investing journey, and why investing in yourself is the key to financial freedom. KEY TAKEAWAYS Life is sometimes about taking risks. Many believe that when our backs are against the wall we should play it safe, but these are the times that test us, and when we realise what we're capable of. When we create a network, we empower our reach. Building trust among others is the gateway to opportunity. Our network is our net worth. The key to finding your niche is to identify the area not being served by others and filling that need. For Sarah, taking her property to the next level has proved fruitful as she is serving a very high-end need. In the beginning of our journey, we often feel the need to take on more and more in order to secure an income. But this can lead to overwhelm. Know your limits and stick to them. BEST MOMENTS 'Sometimes people's success speaks so loudly that you can't ignore them' 'It was an adventure and we met so many people that we've stuck with' 'If you go to outstanding, then the difference you can command is outstanding' 'Don't try to do too much at once. It's not very clever' VALUABLE RESOURCES The Power Of Property  - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission    [email protected] SA Mastery - https://www.facebook.com/groups/997998737602487 ABOUT THE HOST Ellie is a straight-talking, successful property entrepreneur who passionately believes that everyone has the power within themselves to transform their lives no matter what their situation.

Build Your Assets And Secure Your Future - with Ken Mack

Ellie is in discussion with serial entrepreneur, Ken Mack - a man who has raised himself up from humble beginnings to become a global leader in mergers and acquisitions. Ken talks about what's driven him to do better all his life, what has drawn him to the world of acquisitions, why assets value so much, and why he has chosen to raise others up through knowledge and mind-set. KEY TAKEAWAYS We use the gifts and skills we have to help ourselves, but there comes a point in all our lives, when we must give back and use our talents to raise others up. Many think that the traditional pension route provides for our futures, when in fact we should be looking to build assets that will provide for life. In life, and in business, there are ups and downs. The true success is found by those who develop the resilience to pick themselves back up after a setback and use what they've learned in order to overcome. Those in power have spent much time in developing ways of influencing and controlling. They play upon our insecurities and condition us not to question the factors that affect our life. BEST MOMENTS 'I went on a mission to help other people' 'I wasn't handed anything in life so I always had to make my own money' 'I got most enjoyment out of innovating, creating things, and being part of a deal' 'I created a coaching programme so that I can give back to people what I never had' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Ken Mack - https://www.kenmack.com/about Ken Mack LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/kenmackofficial/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Power Of Property: Focus On What You Can Control - with Gavin Gallagher

Gavin Gallagher is someone who's truly embraced the power of property in order to create the life he's always wanted. Having once created a portfolio containing over £65m of assets, Gavin has since overcome challenge upon challenge, and rebuilt entirely. There are few people more well-versed in the ways that property can change a life, and he's here with Ellie this week on the Power Of Property podcast, to tell you how you can change yours. KEY TAKEAWAYS When the incentives are strong enough, then it is easy to keep pushing forward with the goals we have, and not be distracted by other factors. We must always keep our reason for doing this, front and centre. It's easy to lose your grip on the "why" behind your investing journey. There is always a way back, even from the depths of failure. We must take the lessons we have learned and adjust our mind-set in order to battle our way back to the top. It's easy to become sidetracked and overwhelmed, especially when we are in a place of desperation. In these moments, we must focus only upon the things we can control, and take each win incrementally. BEST MOMENTS 'I wanted to be in a business that built something' 'It was like a house of cards that came down' 'You start to really work on yourself' 'Only focus on what you can control' VALUABLE RESOURCES The Power Of Property  - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission    Gavin Gallagher - https://gavinjgallagher.com ABOUT THE HOST Ellie is a straight-talking, successful property entrepreneur who passionately believes that everyone has the power within themselves to transform their lives no matter what their situation.

Jeannette joins Ellie to discuss the fascinating story that has brought her here, to the pinnacle of success, how she deals with impostor syndrome, why your perception matters so much in business, and the key to successful business partnerships. KEY TAKEAWAYS It doesn't matter what your background is. If you believe enough, and dedicate yourself to putting in the work required, you can place yourself in any industry or sector, despite the daunting prospect of "impostor syndrome". Often, our perception of what an environment will be like can colour the effect that it actually has. If we approach each situation hopefully and with positivity, then this doubt can be overcome. There are always natural crossroads and junctions in life, at which we are given pause to think about where we have come from, and evaluate the next steps, and the direction in which they take us. The best partnerships are often the ones built upon opposing skill sets. This allows the combined partnership tackle a far greater set of challenges. BEST MOMENTS 'Half of those barriers were barriers I put in my own mind' 'If you walk into a room thinking there's going to be a problem, then there probably will be' 'I think we've lasted this long because we are so different!' 'If you can get the best of both, then that's really amazing' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission ABOUT THE GUEST Jeannette Linfoot is a highly regarded senior executive, property investor, board advisor, and business mentor with over 25 years of global professional business experience across the travel, leisure, hospitality, and property sectors.

The Power Of Financial Independence - with Kevin Whelan

This week, Ellie is on a mission alongside wealth mentor, author and podcaster, Kevin Whelan, the founder of Wealth Builders, dedicated to helping business owners and property investors leverage existing assets to create lasting wealth. Kevin discusses the power of wealth planning and how it can positively impact the lives of those who make it their own mission in life by making them financially independent, as well as the incredible story of his success so far. KEY TAKEAWAYS Being financially independent is not just a luxury. In these unstable days, it is almost a necessity, insuring us against external factors, such as the economy and political shifts. The world is full of conflicting information. We are naturally drawn to the voices who relay an uncomplicated, empowering message that inspires hope, but which also offers a practical way to achieve our goals. Achieving financial independence is about slowly taking ownership of everything we need in life, and reducing the money we owe until we achieve our own "Debt Free Day" Far too many people do not utilise the power of their property in order to create a better life. They downsize far too late in life and take the traditional route of storing reserves in banks, which provides little to no return. BEST MOMENTS  'We're on a mission to help 50,000 people become financially independent' 'What you need is a unique message. You have to be passionate about your subject' 'The day you own everything and owe nothing is your debt-free day' 'It's going to lead to a life of compromise, a life of worry and a life of concern' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission   Kevin Whelan LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/kevinjwhelan/?originalSubdomain=uk Wealth Builders - https://www.wealthbuilders.co.uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Pioneering Life-Changing Experiences - with Philip McKernan

This week, Ellie is on a mission alongside inspirational speaker, writer and filmmaker, Philip McKernan, who has worked tirelessly with entrepreneurs, business leaders, and high-level athletes, to inspire, motivate and challenge what's possible. Philip discusses the importance of intuition and our emotional landscape, the ways in which he has personally conquered setbacks in life in order to succeed, and how we can shake off the shackles of expectation in order to ensure that we show up fully for ourselves. KEY TAKEAWAYS Intuition is our naturally-given gift, steering us through life and its many decisions. it tends to be stronger during our childhood, but becomes diluted and less-trusted as we grow older. Sometimes, an outer perspective is needed. People see things in us that we often cannot see, or are unwilling to see in ourselves. Far too many people journey through life, worrying about what others might think of us at any given moment. This means that many people are living for someone else instead of themselves. The tougher conversations we have, surrounding the pains and heartaches that hold us back, are often the ones that have the most transformative effects. BEST MOMENTS 'I can deeply hear and feel what people are saying to me' 'It's about the emotional landscape rather than just the mind-set' 'If you ignore your gut, it'll always come back to haunt you' 'I believe there's a place to take the greatest pains and shine a light on them' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Philip McKernan - https://philipmckernan.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Story Of A Global Empire - with Joe Foster

This week, Ellie is on a mission alongside Joe Foster, world-renowned business mastermind, author and co-founder of global super brand, Reebok. Joe discusses his beginnings in business, how Reebok grew from small beginnings to a global super power, and the story of Joe's incredible journey into and through business - the challenges faced and the lessons learned. KEY TAKEAWAYS Reebok grew from an imaginative and innovative series of progressions in the Foster family, that began with Joe's grandfather - one of the pioneering influencers. Many entering the world of business with an idea, see only the idea itself, and focus upon this solely. However, we soon come to realise that business is an all-encompassing pursuit, and requires a swift and comprehensive education in many areas. This is the entrepreneurial journey. Challenges arise at all junctures along the route through our business journey. The great ones recognise that challenge is there to be overcome, and lessons are always learned in its wake. Successful collaborations and partnerships are built upon a shared vision and purpose - one that guides a business around every obstacle, regardless of personal feeling. BEST MOMENTS 'He didn't just know how to influence by giving shoes - he knew how to promote and advertise his product' 'We get a problem - how do we solve it...?' 'We built a family company - they felt part of it' 'I have enjoyed this journey. And it is not finished...'

There Are No Limits To The Challenges We Can Overcome - with Mark Ormrod MBE

This week, Ellie is in conversation with Royal Marines veteran, motivational speaker, author and founder of No Limits, Mark Ormrod MBE. Mark talks about his military past, how we can find growth and development in the most unlikely of places, and how he has come back from extraordinary adversity with a message of positivity and courage. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sometimes, personal growth comes in the midst of great challenge. If we place ourselves before obstacles, then we may surprise ourselves when it comes to personal development. Our emotions play a huge role in the way we react in the aftermath of a traumatic event. We find ourselves sometimes surprised by feelings of guilt and anger, although the fault is not always our own. Mark is living proof that no matter how large the obstacles we face, we can always find a way to come back from the brink of despair and conquer the road ahead. Inspiration breeds inspiration - if we can follow the lead of others, then we also provide a roadmap for others to follow in our wake. BEST MOMENTS 'It appealed to me because of the growth you experience in the military' 'You almost can't process it. You're looking at it and saying "This doesn't make any sense to me"' 'I had to start really being brought back into the real world to figure out what to do, moving forward' 'That was the last time I ever used my wheelchair' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Mark Ormrod Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/markormrod/?hl=en Mark Ormrod Twitter - https://twitter.com/MarkOrmrod?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Fighting Your Way To Success - with Jess Roper

This week, Ellie is on a mission to get fighting fit with two time English kickboxing champion, Jess Roper, who is currently in training so as to compete for the British title in September. Jess discusses the challenging beginnings she had in life, and how she rose above, fought back, and conquered in order to win success, as well as the many talents and skills she's developed along the way. KEY TAKEAWAYS No matter where we start in life, we always have a way out of our situation if we have the drive to succeed, and are willing to put in the work. Goals always work best when they are set incrementally. The road to success is long and challenging. Set realistic goals and conquer them one by one. If we ignore potential outcomes, and focus instead on giving our best at every given moment, we are far more likely to score success. To become a champion at what you do, and to perform at your best, you need to focus upon yourself and your health first, and the rest will follow. BEST MOMENTS 'I was very driven from a very young age' 'You think you're ready... you can't be ready until you do it!' 'The turning point was becoming a champion' 'Instead of fearing the worst and talking myself out of the win, I'd been visualising it.

Faith, Relationships and Connection - A Conversation with Paul Scanlon

This week, Ellie is on a mission with Paul Scanlon, one of the most sought after public speakers in the world, as well as a best-selling author, coach, mentor and master communicator. Paul discusses his journey in life, from humble beginnings to the pinnacle of success, why faith matters so much when it comes to determining our paths in life, and how a more relationship-based approach to religion and life can create a greater sense of connection. KEY TAKEAWAYS Education is not a one-size-fits all endeavour, yet many authorities enforce this practice, meaning that many children, who require different learning pathways or specialised focus, slip through the cracks. Religion seems to be built upon a rigid sense of conformity and regulation, when in fact, a more relationship-based approach is far more compatible with the way we as human beings connect and communicate. When our organisations focus upon growing with the same client base, but our marketing aims much wider than that, it indicates a disconnect between what we believe and how we behave. As leaders, we function best when we put people at the heart of everything we do - managing, building, connecting with our people are the best ways of getting the best from them. BEST MOMENTS 'My entry point was not religion. It was relationship' 'What I knew I had to do was change our culture - not just our beliefs' 'None of it really matters until you are willing to disrupt yourself and start barbecuing a few sacred cows' 'I knew I had to become more intentional about being a people person' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Paul Scanlon - https://www.paulscanlon.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

A New Way Of Educating - with Grace Jolley

Is our education system failing our children? That's the question this week, as Ellie is on a mission with Grace Jolley, who believes that the system does not work for children. Grace discusses the reasons behind her decision to quit her job as a teacher in order to found her own education programme, and why a fresh outlook on child-led learning is needed. KEY TAKEAWAYS As it stands, education is set upon instilling the principle that maths, english and science are the subjects that must be embraced and developed, without taking into account the child's individual needs, or considering the path that they wish to walk in life. OFSTED's regulations and systems are not focussed upon children, but take a far more administrative, standardised approach to teach itself. It seems to be far more concerned with ticking boxes than inspiring generations. In the current education system, there seems to be a hierarchy in terms of subjects, with the arts squarely towards the bottom of the list. Within the arts you also have a hierarchy where art and music and held about dance and drama. This means that children are given the impression that these pursuits are of no importance. We must provide a rounded education course, with no negative connotations when it comes to the pursuits they are drawn to. This will build confidence and allow their creative minds to flourish and develop. BEST MOMENTS 'My mission is to change the way that education works' 'Everybody has an invested interest in education' 'Schools are killing creativity in children' 'That's the hardest bit. A lot of kids have it ingrained that they can't say that they don't know, because it's wrong' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Grace Jolley LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/grace-jolley01/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Becoming A Wellbeing Champion - with Team GB Olympian, Jack Green

This week, Ellie is on a mission with Olympic hero, Jack Green, star of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, and one of Team GB's most formidable sporting names. Ellie talks to Jack about his sporting career, the pressures of a sporting career and how the sometimes hidden pains of great success can weigh heavily upon mental health and wellbeing, and his work since with Champion Health UK, where he holds the position of Head Of Performance. KEY TAKEAWAYS When we are young, mental health issues can often be ignored or overlooked, passed off as the norm due to adolescence and emerging adulthood. When we attach our self worth to our achievements, it can be brutal. If we suffer failure, we can feel as though this is a reflection of our true worth, and our mental wellbeing suffers accordingly. A common problem in the world of sports, is that funding is low, and all income from the pursuit must be fought for. Many are on minimum wage. This only adds to the sense of negative self-worth and in some cases, desperation, as well as the pressures of the sport itself. Burnout occurs when we attempt to give more than we have in our tank. If we are only running at 60% of our capacity, then striving to do better, work harder, and give 100% when we don't have it, is a sure road to burnout. BEST MOMENTS 'It was about being the best in the world ever. Not just being the best in the world' 'When you're successful, it hides things even more' 'My whole life was about results, and that's how I measured myself as a human being' 'What effort does, is it allows you to be a human being' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Jack Green LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jackgreenoly/?originalSubdomain=uk Champion Health UK - https://championhealth.co.uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Definition Of Success - with Kevin Brittain

This week, Ellie talks to the fantastic Kevin Brittain - the "run-preneur" - a man on a mission to save the lives of countless children by raising one million pounds for a variety of charities, which between them, will positively impact the lives of children on a global scale. Kevin discusses his personal definition of what success means, why philanthropy matters, and how through dedication and imagination, we can truly impact the world in positive ways. KEY TAKEAWAYS The definition of success for Kevin, is having the choice and the freedom to spend time in ways that suit our values. If those values are aligned with philanthropy then the world around you wins, too. We can overcome our mental limitations and blocks by applying physical conditioning. By raising endorphins and getting the blood pumping, we can turn a negative day into a positive one. We are on the edge of a new pandemic - one of mental health issues - caused by the effects of COVID and the lockdown. We can help to alleviate the stresses of mental health by also taking care of our physical wellbeing. Engaging and communicating with others is a true skill in itself. Some people are naturals at it, and some are not. If we can build our communication skills and develop them further, we can unlock new connections and build networks. BEST MOMENTS 'For a lot of people, success is defined by money in the bank, but success is having the autonomy and freedom to live life on your terms' 'I had this vision' 'If we can create a movement, that really excites me' 'The main benefit is that you will have been part of the run-preneur challenge, saving the lives of children. That in a nutshell, is my dream' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Kevin Brittain Twitter - https://twitter.com/kevinbrittain Kevin Brittain LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/kevin-brittain-03008318/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Questions: The Key To Life And Love - with Mark Victor Hansen and Crystal Hansen

This week, Ellie is joined by special guests, author Mark Victor Hansen and his wife Crystal. Mark is best known for co-authoring the 'Chicken Soup For The Soul' book series - a phenomenon that has touched and empowered the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world, and which has collectively sold more than 500m copies to date. Mark and Crystal discuss the incredible Chicken Soup series and how it has changed the world, their beautiful love story, and how asking questions can open up hitherto unexplored possibilities in life. KEY TAKEAWAYS By asking questions, we explore possibilities. Sometimes a well-placed question is far more powerful than an answer. We are not defined by our professions in life. We are not "human doings" but "human-becoming". We get from one point to the next by asking the right questions. The people who find extraordinary levels of success are those who are "master askers" in three areas - ask yourself, ask others, and ask God. When you care enough to ask a question of someone, it elevates the potential relationship between you both. Asking a question proves your interest in the other and makes them feel noticed and present. BEST MOMENTS 'People who ask questions are twice as likely to get a second date' 'You are a human-becoming!' 'You can't move your life along in the direction you want until you take that reflective journey though questions' 'Relationships are the highest forms of currency' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Mark Victor Hansen Twitter - https://twitter.com/MarkVHansen Mark Victor Hansen - https://www.markvictorhansen.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Mastering Your Mind-Set - with Ryan Pinnick

In a special bonus episode, Ellie talks to Ryan Pinnick - the master of mind-set - a multiple seven-figure entrepreneur, speaker and mentor, specialising in empowering people to master life and business using superconsciousness. Ryan talks about his background, and why inclusivity and diversity matter so much. He also discusses the importance of looking for the positives in every challenge we face, and how awareness can allow us take advantage of opportunities. KEY TAKEAWAYS Even the toughest challenges in life can provide useful lessons later. Ryan's own background, one of discrimination and exclusion trained him to deal with trauma and adversity. We're never doomed because of where we come from in life. We can always rise above challenge and conquer our weaknesses in order to find victory. True mastery of life is about owning your fears and negatives, whatever shape they may take. Only be confronting and defeating them can we gain full control and mastery over ourselves. Attracting opportunities is not enough. We must also develop the awareness to know when to take advantage of those opportunities. BEST MOMENTS 'It trained me to deal with trauma. It trained me to deal with adversity' 'The work I teach is based on a solid philosophy' 'It doesn't matter what cards you're dealt - you can always win the game' 'Real mastery is about owning your fears' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Ryan Pinnick Twitter - https://twitter.com/ryanpinnick ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Success Formula - with Mark Homer

This week, Ellie is on a mission with Progressive Property co-founder, property investor, entrepreneur, self-professed data geek, and host of the incredible Mark My Words podcast, Mark Homer. Mark joins Ellie to discuss his formula for success, how he built one of the most impressive property portfolios in the UK, why time is the most important resource we have, how to create a successful partnership, and the importance of financial education when it comes to business success. KEY TAKEAWAYS Financial common sense was bred into Mark from the very beginning, and the lesson was swiftly learned about the value of money and why it is important never to waste resources. Time is the most valuable thing we have. If we must spend money in order to save ourselves time, then so be it. We can always make more money, but time is a finite resource and must be conserved. Opposing skill-sets are vital when it comes to partnerships. We serve the business best when we are performing the tasks we're good at. Partnerships don't work if both partners are doing the same thing. The great business figures are the ones who can adapt in an agile way to changing circumstances. Mark's ability to pivot and shift to different business models helped him to survive and thrive during the pandemic, and as a result he has emerged stronger. BEST MOMENTS 'Time is your most valuable commodity' 'Economics is a core skill' 'Don't wish it was easier - wish you were better' 'You know what's going to happen, you just don't know exactly when' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission ABOUT THE GUEST Mark has bought, sold or has managed around 1,000 property units for himself, Rob, his family and his investors since 2003.

Elevate Your Thinking and Use Your Voice - with Dan Astin Gregory

This week, Ellie talks to entrepreneur, Elevate Media founder, and host of the Pandemic Podcast, Dan Astin Gregory, one of the foremost voices of reason during the last twelve months. Dan joins Ellie to discuss his driving purpose behind the Pandemic Podcast, why we all need to ask the hard question of those who supply information, and how we can make lasting, impactful change in the world by listening to the guidance of our inner voice. KEY TAKEAWAYS Entrepreneurs have a natural curiosity about the world, and a tendency to want to take apart a problem and look at it from a different angle. We should always be brave enough to ask the hard questions, especially when the answers are ones that dictate the ways in which we live. Our perception of reality and fact, are shaped by the type of content we consume, and by the media organisations we choose to follow. The truth is never clear cut. We may not always agree with the reasons behind protesters, but we must absolutely ensure that the right to protest is protected. It is a vital tenet of free speech. BEST MOMENTS 'Entrepreneurs have a natural curiosity about the world' 'It's okay for the adults to suffer for a while, but children? That's not okay!' 'Dan, if you don't step up and lead here now, when are you actually ever going to do that?' 'What we've lacked in the mainstream media is open, scientific debate' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Dan Astin Gregory Twitter - https://twitter.com/danjgregory Dan Astin Gregory - https://www.danjgregory.com/pandemic/ Dan Astin Gregory LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/danjgregory/ ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Passionate And Compassionate Entrepreneurialism - with Jessen James

This week, Ellie is on a mission with the multi-talented Jessen James - a psychiatric nurse turned multi-millionaire, international public speaker, the UK Public Speaking Champion, business mentor and star of Channel 5's 'Rich House, Poor House' Jessen joins Ellie to discuss his incredible entrepreneurial journey which began in his childhood, the power of talking to people, and how building an entrepreneurial journey founded upon compassion has served others and himself. KEY TAKEAWAYS Compassion is one of the most important driving factors in any life journey. If we grow up seeing pain, then we strive to ensure that others do not suffer, also. When you build a business, it's always best to start with what you know, instead of what you think people will want. That way, you are an expert in your field - you just need to learn how to structure the business around this. There is no substitute for the human element in business mentorship and coaching. When we demonstrate that we truly care, money becomes irrelevant. If we can put people first in the equation, then income will follow. But the intention has to be honest. We have to care truly about others, and make sure their interests are at the heart of every endeavour. BEST MOMENTS 'My integrity is worth more to me than any amount of money' 'You've got to be born with compassion for other people' 'I believe in talking to people' 'Nobody cares how much you know until you show them how much you care' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Jessen James - https://www.jessenjames.com Jessen James LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jessen-james-👈🏽-31380968?originalSubdomain=uk Jessen James Twitter - https://twitter.com/jessenjames ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

The Roadmap For Success - with Andy Thomas

Ellie is on a mission this week with property superstar and serial entrepreneur, Andy Thomas, who went from being a mortgage broker, the man at the helm of an eight-figure property portfolio. Andy talks to Ellie about how he turned the tide in his life and created a multi-million dollar business from nothing through little more than determination and the will to succeed, the value of mentorship and education in the property world, and the importance of living in the moment. KEY TAKEAWAYS Entrepreneurs can see the opportunities everywhere, no matter what the situation. They are the ones hungry for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. Deals might not always be right for us at the time, but they may serve someone else well. Deal packaging is the art of selling a deal on to an investor and receiving a fee in return. By equipping ourselves with a toolbox of strategies, and aligning with a mentor or someone who can guide us through challenges, our potential to succeed is increased exponentially. The only thing that's guaranteed in life is the present moment we have. We should never sacrifice our happiness in the present for some far off point in the future. BEST MOMENTS 'I knew I was good with people. I knew I was good at that face-to-face sales life' 'You went from nothing to having 134 properties in your portfolio!' 'You can't be open to the opportunities unless you can step back and be more strategic' 'I believe this is the roadmap to success' 'Within the confines of my own life, I am exactly where I want to be' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Andy Thomas LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrew-thomas-1a14bb181/?originalSubdomain=uk ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Pushing The Boundaries Of What's Possible - with Michaela Wain

This week, Ellie is on a mission alongside Michaela Wain, who shot to fame after being put through her paces by Lord Sugar in the 2017 series of BBC's The Apprentice. But what many don't realise is that Michaela has always been at the forefront of business and entrepreneurship. Michaela discusses her astounding business journey so far, which has seen her at the head of multiple seven-figure businesses, how to find the will to face down the demons that hold us back, and her personal mission to get more women into the world of construction. KEY TAKEAWAYS The upbringings we experience ourselves have drastic implications about the upbringings we want for our own children. They can help us to set a course in life, either to reach or to avoid. Age discrimination doesn't just happen to those of a more mature age. Younger people are often overlooked or dismissed. Never be afraid to ask for guidance if something is unclear. It's far better to be right, and to be sure, than to take chances and face failure. We sometimes find the will to succeed in the most unlikely of places. When we are told that we cannot do something, it fires us up even more, pushing us forward with the aim of proving that voice wrong. BEST MOMENTS 'I never wanted my children to experience having to get a ticket off a dinner lady and people knowing that your school uniform was free' 'We handed in our notice and started trading the next day - the rest is history' 'You get what you pay for. When it comes to advice about something you know nothing about, get the best advice you can get!'

Creating Miracles Through Positive Transformation - with Suzy Ashworth

This week, Ellie talks to Quantum Transformation and embodiment coach, and believer in miracles, who has helped entrepreneurs to realise 6-7 figure incomes. Suzy joins Ellie today to discuss why she always believed in a better life for herself and how she did it, how to make sure a business partnership is destined to succeed, and her own personal formula for helping people to achieve their best in life. KEY TAKEAWAYS Moments of clarity arrive when we need them. They are the inner, guiding voices telling us that something isn't right, and which urge us towards a better path for ourselves. We may be good at what we do, but it might not be the thing that inspires us. If we can identify what lights the fire inside us, and make a career out of that, the fire burns even brighter. Partnerships can work well, but they have to be built upon the right purpose. Simply chaining yourself to someone in order to share the burden is not a good enough reason. We gain purpose through recognising our own physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Only by doing this can we truly visualise the future we want. BEST MOMENTS 'It opened me up to different people and different experiences. People were doing life very differently to what I'd seen' 'There's only ever room for one star' 'The rest, as they say, is history - it changed my life' 'I help people tune in to what it is they want' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Suzy Ashworth - https://suzyashworth.com ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

A Business Masterclass From The Queen of Sales - with Alison Edgar MBE

This week, Ellie is joined by "The Queen Of Sales", motivational speaker, and author of 'Secrets Of Successful Sales', Alison Edgar MBE! Alison discusses the importance of recognising your roots in life, the difference between entrepreneurs and business owners, and why putting in the effort is sometimes worth far more than achieving the result in mind. KEY TAKEAWAYS It's vital that we never forget our roots, and where we've come from. We may reach the dizzy heights of success, but by remaining rooted, we will be able to connect with anyone, regardless of background. There's a difference between an entrepreneur, and someone who has merely set up a business. Entrepreneurs are hungry. They take risks. They always bet big on the exciting ideas. Having strong opinions is one thing, but we must never be so closed-minded that we cannot listen to the perspective of others. No one can ever know everything. We need to remain open. Often, coaches spend more time selling the courses than actually offering any practical, actionable advice. It can be a case of smoke and mirrors. Look for guidance from those who have a track record of proven results, and who have helped others to achieve the same. BEST MOMENTS 'Never forget where you're coming from' 'My appearance shaped me to be who I am' 'I've got my own path, but I can be influenced by others opinions if I think they're valid' 'It's A for effort, not A for the result'  VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - https://omny.fm/shows/on-a-mission Alison Edgar - https://alisonedgar.com Alison Edgar Twitter - https://twitter.com/thealisonedgar ABOUT THE HOST The On A Mission Podcast brings you Ellie Mckay's no holds barred chats with some of the UK's top business leaders, entrepreneurs, celebrities, athletes, top thought leaders, influencers and mindset experts.

Building An Empire From A Standing Start - with Paul McFadden

This week, Ellie is on a mission alongside Paul McFadden, one of the UK's most renowned and respected business success coaches, who rose from humble beginnings to amass a multi-million pound property portfolio. Paul discusses the ways in which he gained the attitude and mindset that has taken him to the top, how to use the lessons from your past to shape the pathway to the future, and the value of learning from others. KEY TAKEAWAYS Change is difficult for some, which can result in a lack of support at times, from those around us. But we should never feel held back by the expectations of others. We evolve to become a better version of ourselves if we look at the journey so far and use what we have learned to shape the journey ahead. Surrounding yourself with the right people will always push you on to do better and be better. Never discount the power of a team's support. We are not designed to embrace risk, and therefore the bigger decisions in life can feel terrifying at times. But no one ever reached the top without putting themselves out there. BEST MOMENTS 'There was never anyone around me that could guide me in a way that these days you have with so many people who can mentor and coach you' 'It's about getting those around you who will push you and test you and get you to level up your game' 'Everything that you have in your life to this moment - you should congratulate yourself, because you've created it' 'I wanted to be the best I could be, and I'm still on that journey to grow and learn' VALUABLE RESOURCES On A Mission - h
