The full episode will be released Friday 10th April ... 

Angie & Shane Saunders Breathe Me

Did you know, you already have all the tools you need, to be healthy, happy, creative - all those really valuable parts of life.  You don’t have to buy anything, you can start doing it, right now. 

My guests today Angie & Shane Saunders are founders of Breathe Me. They’re Award Winning Authors, and host their own Podcast The Breathing Edge.

Shane’s experience starts with 13 Years in the Australian Defence Force. Military training at the highest level, SAS, tactical assault, special forces, and military duty in the Middle East. Angie left working in LA with some of Hollywood’s top producers, to start a new life in Australia.

They left their old lives behind to teach people how to use breath, to literally change the way you live.  And I’ve seen this in action myself, so I know it works.

Learning to breathe, if you’re new to doing more than just what comes naturally, might seem a bit crazy. So, I just ask you to have an open mind, and let’s uncover the secrets together.

Episode 9. Systems give you more space to be creative - David Jenyns

For a quick teaser...check out this video

Listen to the full episode below ...

There are lots of aspects to running a business.  But one I personally feel gets left out of the early stages, are systems.

That’s not taking the creative out, but in fact allows you more room to be creative.

Systems are an integral part of all business … well the ones that are successful!

In this episode Eriks & Judy talk to David Jenyns seasoned entrepreneur, spanning from retail, to founding one of Australia’s most trusted digital agencies, Melbourne SEO & Video. As well as an Amazon bestseller.

And the person behind SystemHub.  An innovative approach to managing systems.

To quote Benjamin Franklin … “Watch the little things; a small leak will sink a great ship”

This to me can be how systems and processes are viewed by many business…it’s a small thing, we’ll get to that later. 

David shares practical tips on implementing your own systems.  You’ll gain valuable insights no matter what size business you operate.

Is our obsession with KPIs blocking innovation?

They are important, but they only show what happened in your past. They don't predict your future.

Intuitively we know that. But we seem to have this blind spot, which means we can’t move forward unless we have big data to back it.

In this week's podcast we talk to Ideas Architect Geoff McDonald, on how creativity ultimately transforms into innovation.
