He's a content creator, commercial filmmaker, endurance athlete, storyteller, entrepreneur, and inspiration for over half a million online followers. He's also a good bloke and I loved meeting him.

A full circle moment for me... The E-Myth was the first business book I ever read and it taught me about the concept of working 'on' my business and not just 'in' it. For me, it was enlightening, inspiring and transformational. And all these years later, I had the pleasure of chatting with the man who inspired me, Michael Gerber. I seriously love my job. Enjoy.

I'm fascinated with the type of relationship people have with their jobs. For some people, it's something to be tolerated, survived and endured until the weekend. Or worse, retirement. For others, it's associated with more positive things like growth, learning, skill development, fun, connection, creativity and satisfaction. As a bloke who hasn't had a 'job' for thirty-four years, I f**king love my work but I'm saddened when I talk to people who seem to spend decades waiting for weekends and holidays, to experience joy. What if we got excited about Mondays?

Sometime I chat with someone and, despite the fact that we've never met, there's an immediate connection, the conversation just happens organically and I feel like I'm hanging out with someone I've known for years. This episode is exactly that. Michael and I covered a lot of interesting territory in the space of business development, the journey to professional speaking, creating and providing value, the psychology of spending, being broadly relevant, the illusion of objectivity and lots more. *BIO: Michael McQueen is a multi-award winning speaker, trend forecaster and bestselling author of ten books.

Tiff and I got together and unpacked the idea of objective and subjective 'truth'. It's true that talking to a large audience is comfortable for me, and it's also true that for many people, it's terrifying. Two 'opposing truths'; both correct. We also spoke about what we think we know (beliefs) vs. unequivocal facts, the fallibility of science and the propensity we have, to take our gifts for granted.

Young Tommy dropped by TYP Central and we had a casual chat about how work affects us positively or negatively (work impact vs. work-life balance), the need we humans have to ‘feel special’ (in a world of 8 billion other humans), the idea of starting at the bottom to build the skills, competence and understanding in order to get to the top, the K-Pop phenomenon, whether or not self-promotion is a good idea, what we’re both watching on Netflix and lots more. Enjoy.

Fergus Watts is a high-level problem solver. He’s an entrepreneur, team-builder, brilliant communicator, visionary and inspirational leader who asks great questions, makes hard decisions, thinks clearly, turns ideas into realities, leads with passion and most importantly, does great work with, and for, people who need it most. Fergus is a former AFL footballer with St Kilda and Adelaide Crows, the CEO of The Reach Foundation (empowering and supporting young people), the founder (and current Chairman) of the Bastion Agency (employing over 300 people across Australia, New Zealand and the USA), father of three (all under 4) and husband of one. No wonder he’s tired. I knew Ferg when he was a kid and young man, and to catch up with him twenty years later and see what he’s done, who he’s helped, what he’s created and who he’s become, was the highlight of my week. Enjoy.
