Episode #25: Knowing what’s right for you and following your truth
I’ve got a really juicy Q&A for you today. I received this via email and just KNEW I had to respond – I’ve been through this EXACT same challenge regarding a past relationship, following my truth despite the discomfort and doing what was right for me and my life.
This is the question I received:
“I’m just writing to see if you’ve got any thoughts on that area of life to “figure out” If what we are in is right. I feel so much inner conflict. And what gets thrown around in my head is whether its me and my own insecurities and maybe what I envisioned my life partner to be or whether that niggly feeling I get (I admit it is often when i’m pre menstrual) is true. I can’t figure out what ‘my truth’ is! Whether it’s worth listening to things even in pre menstrual times or whether I’m talking myself out of something etc. Because at other times there is a lot of love there obviously otherwise I wouldn’t be here. I think what is underlying is I didn’t have a lot of time being single between my last boyfriend and this one and sometimes I dream about having that alone time to really figure some stuff out. But as I am aware I could be fantasising about something that would feel horrible! As you can see I’m a little all over the shop. Any suggestions on what to read or do to find a little more clarity!? When you were going through your saturn return or before you met your current partner what helped you?”
In this episode I cover:

‘Be Centered’ was the most popular track on the album. Incorporating the energies of earth and sun to create grounding, clarity, lightness, a sense of centre and deep calm.
“It only took one track to convince me to buy Claire’s meditation album – It blew me away with a clear, strong & pretty vocal and relaxing modern music. It’s one of the strongest meditation albums I’ve ever listened to. Although the meditations have a clear spiritual goal, they also remain very grounded.
Because of Claire’s gentle, empowered voice, you trust and feel totally at ease with Claire’s teachings – which is really what they are. This is not just a meditation album, it’s a learning experience. I would recommend this to my nearest & dearest, to help them feel peaceful, strong & empowered.”
This album includes 11 supportive, powerful and nurturing meditations.
“These 11 delightful meditations from Claire speak to my soul. To wake in the morning bleary eyed and allow myself to keep a state of softness as I am guided by her voice is the very definition of self love. I feel supported and set up for the day. In some magical way the focus for each track seems directly crafted for what I need in my life at that time. Purchasing this album was a gift in so many ways. Tania Morgan.:

Episode #17: Blending Business and Baby with Lorraine Murphy
Many moons ago back in my ‘old’ life when I used to work in PR, Lorraine Murphy joined our team as our new Account Director. I worked very closely with her and was struck by her ability to get shit done.
Fast forward a few years – I was now a Life + Wellness Coach and Lorraine had just started The Remarkables Group. Lorraine came to me for some support and guidance and she undertook a 6 month coaching program. It was during this time that I was blessed to witness Lorraine’s insane drive, focus, creativity, willingness and motivation. She was carving our a whole new territory in the influence strategy industry. And her new business was keeping her on her toes – we worked through strategies to help her find peace, balance, presence and calm amongst the chaos of new business land.
Now, Lorraine, who recently became a mama to little Lexi is considered one of the most dynamic and remarkable entrepreneurs. And I was so fascinated to learn how Lorraine was blending her first baby (her business!) with her new little lady, Lexi.
Our conversation is honest, full of insights and tips and simply refreshing. Much like Lorraine! There are plenty of swear words and sworn truths about life as a mama and a business owner but SO many juicy take-aways for you to implement or even just chew on if you too are trying to blend (not juggle!) your business and baby.
Lorraine Murphy is the Founder of The Remarkables Group – the first dedicated influencer strategy agency in Australia, which launched in May 2012.
Starting in her spare bedroom, the business went on to secure over $1m in revenue in its first 12 months and is seen as a best practice case study in entrepreneurship. Lorraine is a thoughtleader in entrepreneurship, leadership, innovation, marketing and social media; having spoken to over 3,000 people on three national speaking tours with entrepreneur organisation The Entourage. She has also spoken at industry events including Vivid Sydney, Business Chicks, Collective Hub, General Assembly, Mumbrella’s CommsCon, BeFest, IAA, Social Media Week and Problogger Training Event.
Lorraine’s first book Remarkabilitywas published by Hachette Australia in June 2016; and is an entertaining and practical account of the biggest lessons she has learned in her entrepreneurial and business journey. The book went on to become a best-seller. Her second book, Get Remarkably Organised was released in January 2018.
Lorraine was named one of BRW’s Five Young Entrepreneurs to Watch and one of Dynamic Business’s Young Guns. She has featured frequently in media, including The Project, Sunrise, The Today Show, Sydney Morning Herald, Collective Hub, Marie Claire, Sky News, ABC News and The Australian.

Episode #15: Learning how to say no + the power of your boundaries
I received this Q&A from Rebecca which I dive into and dissect, answer and comment on.
I Would love to know your thoughts on/advice/opinions about how to say “no”. With every passing year, I find myself getting more and more frustrated about my inability to say no to things that I actually don’t want to do. I find myself agreeing to things before even thinking it over or even after thinking it over, say yes and completely regret it.
I have this urge to make people happy or to not offend or inconvenience anyone that asks for my assistance or time or presence. Sometimes I will even panic and make up an excuse that I think sounds like a “good enough” reason to say no to something. I always assume people will be upset with me for not wanting to do something they ask.
It’s something I really want to work on because what I used to write off as a good natured trait about myself is now becoming something much more complicated. I find that similarly, it can be hard for me to be upfront and honest with others even about things as simple as where I want to eat or what I feel like doing (in situations with friends). I’m always worried about offending or upsetting someone!!! Help!!!!!
