The Power of Self-belief, Passion & Discovering your True Self with Jody Shield – Your Dream Life Podcast Episode 7

Join Kristina as she speaks with the wonderful Jody Shield, author of Life Tonic: A Modern Toolbox to Heal Your Life and Soothe Your Soul in our latest episode. As a top wellbeing influencer, award-winning blogger, meditation expert, inspirational speaker, broadcaster, mentor and all-round inspiring soul, Jody’s simple advice on tapping in to your true self and finding what lights you up is sure to inspire you on your own dream life journey.

Based in the UK and previously a high-flying Business Director in advertising, she has first-hand experience of the stress epidemic that plagues our modern world.

She has been affectionately referred to by the Daily Mail as the ‘Glamourous face of wellbeing,’ and after taking the leap to leave her corporate career and follow her passions, she now supports people to process the past, be present and create a life they love. She’s the first European meditation ambassador for global brand Lululemon Athletica, and has sell-out residencies across London, including her own LifeTonic events. As a consultant, Jody works with huge global brands, including our very own kikki.K to inspire, teach and change lives.

Jody is amazing example of someone who has taken control of her life, jumped in the driver’s seat, and by discovering her passion is now living a life of purpose.

In this fresh and inspirational episode, you’ll learn …

  • How tapping into your inner child can help you get more in touch with your true self
  • The importance of writing down and visualising how you want your life to be
  • How finding what drives you, what lights you up, can help you live a more fulfilling life
  • How you can shift your energy, raise your vibration and embrace an ‘I can’ attitude in your everyday

– and so much more!


Jody is the first to admit that just five years ago, she was lost. Disconnected from who she was, she’d forgotten what it was to be happy, lit up and in-love with life.

Growing up with a very successful and driven family background and pursuing a career as high-flying and very successful Advertising Business Director, she all of a sudden found herself burned out, stressed and stuck in her very own corporate ‘cage’ – as she refers to it. Barely existing in a job that just wasn’t allowing her to be her full self. Like many, she had absolutely no idea what to do about it – except judge herself and get more and more frustrated, until one day she decided enough was simply enough.

And with that, she packed her bags and ventured to the other side of the world in search of herself. She embarked on a plant medicine retreat in Peru, which was the turning point in her life. “I woke up,” states Jody.

“My heart opened, my mind released its grip, and my soul spoke to me for the first time. I felt re-born, and like a baby walking for the first-time, I toddled back into my life.”

Finally, alive again and full of hope and excitement, she knew it was time to start something good in the world.

This is the Jody Kristina speaks to today – a hugely respected wellbeing expert, mentor and medication guru, dedicated to making a difference in the world, helping others to find their true selves and tap back in to that inner self they may have lost somewhere along the way.

Through embracing many rituals that help her to live her best life, Jody now lives with an energy, a contagious outlook on life and positive mindset that is a wonderful reminder of how we really can take control of our own lives.

Self-belief, visualisation (script writing), meditation, an ‘I can’ attitude and a passion for helping people is what drives Jody each day to live her dream life, a life of purpose and intention. You’ll find this episode truly inspiring and full of ways too you can start to work towards your own dream life today.

“One of the most powerful things I took from her story was how by really tapping into her heart and discovering what drives her, what lights her up, and making the decision to pursue that, Jody was able to leave her stressful career and create a life of purpose.” Kristina Karlsson

Overcoming Barriers to Achieve Your Dreams with Olympic Gold Medallist, Alisa Camplin–Warner – Your Dream Life Podcast Episode 6

Olympic Gold Medallist, Alisa Camplin-Warner is Kristina’s incredible guest this episode – a true Australian hero and the first ever female to win gold for Australia in the Winter Olympics. Through strength, determination and self-belief, Alisa defied all odds to famously land a triple twisting, double somersault at the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, just six weeks after breaking her ankles!

Despite having never even seen snow or clipped on a set of skis until she was 19, Alisa became Australia’s first female Winter Olympic gold medallist. Using her renowned mental toughness, Alisa again overcame huge expectations, personal doubt and unimaginable pressure to win Bronze at the Turin 2006 Winter Olympics – just four months after her second major knee reconstruction!

She became the second ever winter Olympic gold medal winner for Australia and is also the first Australian skier to win medals at consecutive Winter Olympics.

In addition to her Olympic medals, and countless other word titles, Alisa also maintained an international professional career with IBM, where she developed a passion for leadership and helping others to grow and learn.

Now a motivational speaker, professional senior leader and television host, Alisa is also the deputy chair of the Australian Sports Commission and was the Performance Manager for Australia’s 2018 Olympic Winter Games Team – just incredible!

Alisa overcame incredibly tough obstacles in her Olympic career to achieve her dreams, and is the perfect example of how inner strength, attitude, determination and self-belief can set you on the path to achieving yours.

In this truly inspiring episode, you’ll discover…

  • The power of mindfulness and visualisation in overcoming tough physical, emotional and mental setbacks
  • How you really can achieve anything you set your mind to, so long as you have self-belief and are committed to putting in the work when required
  • The importance of surrounding yourself with the right people and mentors in order to lift yourself to your full potential
  • How to break down your goals into manageable pieces, and the importance of taking one day at a time
  • How no matter how seemingly impossible or crazy your dreams may be, you can achieve them!

– and so much more!



Alisa had always dreamed of being an Olympian and always had a deep hunger to make it happen, however not in her wildest dreams would she have imagined it would be in the Winter Games. As a young athlete, she had always envisioned winning gold in the Summer Games in field or gymnastics. However, at 19 years of age, she still felt she hadn’t really found her sport.

Surprisingly however, despite having never even seen snow, let alone clipped into skis before, Alisa discovered her sport in Aerial skiing. And after a few jumps on a trampoline at a Mt Buller ski show day and meeting aerial ski coach, Geoff Lipshut who agreed to coach her, her new Winter Olympic dream was ignited.

Determined to turn her dream into a reality, Alisa broke down her monumental goal into smaller, more manageable pieces and after extensive training, injury and countless other obstacles – both physical and mental – at the age of 27, she defied all odds to win gold in the aerial freestyle skiing in the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games.

Unfortunately though, just after her gold-medal victory, she was struck down by a serious injury that included a snapped anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), sidelining her for 10 months. A further two years later, she re-tore the same ligament only months out from her title defence at the 2006 Winter Games in Torino.

Despite her colossal setbacks, Alisa defied all expectations, training her mind and embracing visualisation to eventually win bronze in Torino, becoming the first Australian ever to win successive medals over two games.

Alisa’s story of winning Olympic gold, then bronze and how she worked so hard to follow her dreams is one of the most remarkable stories of self-belief, strength and determination you will ever come across.

This episode contains so many practical pearls of wisdom and learnings you can apply to chasing your own dreams, no matter how wild or unachievable they may seem at the start!

“One of the most powerful lessons I took from Alisa’s story is that it truly is possible to achieve anything you set your mind to. The way she defied all odds to reach – and exceed – her dreams by visualising her success and overcoming self-doubt really inspired me.” Kristina Karlsson

Dr Libby Weaver (PhD) is one of the world’s leading nutritional biochemists, an author, a speaker and founder of the plant-based supplement range, Bio Blends.

Armed with an abundance of knowledge, scientific research and a true desire to help people regain their energy and vitality, Dr Libby empowers and inspires people to take charge of their health and happiness through her books, live events and nutritional support range.

Growing up in Tamworth in country NSW, Libby developed her love of writing after being given a journal at just four years old. Her parents, being farmers at heart, instilled in her a great knowledge and understanding of the nutrients that come from soil and the simple foods we eat.

A passion for learning was born and Libby went on to study Nutrition and Dietetics, followed by a PhD in Biochemistry before embarking on a career dedicated to helping people live happier, healthier and more positive lives.

Driven by this passion for helping people make a difference in their lives, and after 20 years of working in the field, Dr Libby has combined her education with her clinical experience to develop her ‘three-pillar approach‘ to heath, looking at everything through three lenses – the biochemical, nutritional and emotional. This now forms the basis of all books, events, courses and everything else Dr. Libby sets her mind to.

Truly grateful for everything in her life, Libby is someone who seeks out the ‘gifts in any challenges‘ and believes every situation has a silver lining. With a mission ‘to educate and inspire, enhancing people’s health and happiness – igniting a ripple effect that transforms the world,’ Libby’s aim is to give people a greater understanding of how every element of their life works together, and how, by having a balanced biochemistry, we’ll not only be happier in ourselves, but treat those around us with more kindness as well.

Living a life guided by her core values and passions, Libby has continued to follow her instincts and overcome any self-doubt to help her get to where she is today – living a life of purpose, full of energy and an infectious zest for life!

“One of the most powerful lessons I took from her story was how having a clear sense of your own passions and purpose in life not only fills you with an incredible energy and zest for life, but also how having a lack of purpose can negatively impact on our energy levels as well. ” Kristina Karlsson
