Ep. 81 All The Fertility Questions You’ve Been Scared To Ask with Dr Helen O’Neill

Ep. 81 All The Fertility Questions You’ve Been Scared To Ask with Dr Helen O’Neill
Dr Helen O’Neill is a leading expert in reproductive science, she’s a lecturer in reproductive and molecular genetics at University College London, she has a Masters in Prenatal Genetics and Fetal Medicine and a PhD in Stem Cell Biology. She is also the founder and CEO of Hertility Health, an award-winning bio-tech business specialising in fertility testing that has raised over £5 million since launch. Fertility is obviously a hugely sensitive topic, but it’s also one that we never talk about for exactly that reason. When I started this podcast, I wanted it to cover the important topics that we never get taught, and I learnt so so much from Helen that I really couldn’t believe I haven’t researched or known before. If you’re thinking about switching off right now because you find the idea of fertility testing terrifying like I do, I promise you it’s worth sticking it out and listening to this one. However, if you are someone who is currently struggling to conceive, or finds fertility conversations particularly hard, this is an episode to skip.

Ep. 80 How To Rewire Your Brain For Resilience + Success With Professor Steve Peters
Professor Steve Peters has more Olympic medals and world championships to his name than you can count, with accolades in sports from athletics to football, cycling and snooker. But here’s the catch, he hasn’t ever played these sports professionally. Instead, he’s the ‘brain mechanic’ behind the world’s most successful teams and individuals, from England Football to British Cycling. In fact, Snooker World Champion Ronnie O’Sullivan credits Peters with his success.  His advice was incredible, and I can’t wait for you to listen to this one. It is such an honour to have such impressive and intelligent people in my office for this podcast, so I hope you enjoy listening. The Chimp Paradox: https://chimpmanagement.com/books-by-professor-steve-peters/the-chimp-paradox/A Path Through The Jungle: https://chimpmanagement.com/books-by-professor-steve-peters/a-path-through-the-jungle/+Download Revolut for free and get £20 when you use your card! www.revolut.com/graceCashback subject to availability.

Ep. 77 '"F*** Everything I've Ever Been Told": How Katie Lopes Got Over £1.5m Debt To Build Stripe & Stare
Katie Lopes is a woman with resilience. She’s the founder and creative director of sustainable underwear brand Stripe and Stare, but her journey to get there has been anything but smooth sailing. Katie has faced more than your average setbacks, and today she tells me about the tools she used to overcome £1.5 million in debt, a relationship breakdown and heartbreaking loss, and to come out the other side with a growing company and growing self-confidence. She says “I didn’t have the confidence in myself until life tested me and I had no choice.” Her story is incredible, and a real testament to the fact that sometimes you just have to put your “big girl pants on” and find your way through.+Follow me here: https://gracebeverley.komi.io/Shop Stripe & Stare here: https://stripeandstare.com/+SPONSORSDownload Revolut for free and get £20 when you use your card! www.revolut.com/graceCashback subject to availability.

Ep. 76 Why You’re Struggling With Motivation And How To Fix It With John Amaechi OBE

Ep. 76 Why You’re Struggling With Motivation And How To Fix It With John Amaechi OBE
It is an understatement to say that John Amaechi has had a career that has taken him places. Not only is he an Organisational Psychologist, an OBE, a New York Times Bestselling Author, a Fellow of the Institute of Science and Technology, a Professor of Leadership, a non-executive director of an FTSE 250 company and the founder of organisational psychology consultancy APS. He was also, more surprisingly, the first Briton to play professional basketball in the NBA league, a move which saw him leave his hometown of Stockport for the world of professional basketball aged just 18. And whilst playing, he was the first NBA player to come out as gay. Never afraid to stand up and speak out, his book made me question a lot of things I thought I knew about myself and the way I live and work. Amaechi has spent years studying the world’s highest performers, in both the sporting and corporate world, and I’m so looking forward to everyone hearing his amazing techniques. I learnt so much in this chat and I’m sure you will too. I'd be so grateful if you could rate the podcast five stars.+Download Revolut for free and get £20 when you use your card! www.revolut.com/graceCashback subject to availability.
