Shahroo Izadi: Making Positive, Long-Term Changes by Treating Yourself with Kindness – Your Dream Life Podcast Episode 13

Kristina is joined by Shahroo Izadi in this wonderful episode – a Behavioural Change Specialist, author of the life-changing book, The Kindness Method and an all-round incredible woman.

Her belief that treating yourself kindly is the only way to make positive and long-term changes in your life is a refreshing and practical approach we should all look to embrace as we work towards our dreams.

After many years of working with people overcoming substance misuse and addiction, and battling through her own self-doubt, low self-esteem and an unhealthy relationship with food, Shahroo was able to turn her life around by putting simple, positive and sustainable habits in place – but more importantly, by treating herself with kindness and compassion every day – something many of us find difficult to do.

Shahroo’s revolutionary approach to helping people make positive and long-lasting changes in their life is something that is very dear to Kristina’s heart – and something that is also aligned with our brand philosophy at kikki.K.

In this wonderful episode you’ll discover….

  • Simple tools and kind ways to change habits and behaviours in your life for the long-term
  • How to stop focusing on what might be wrong in any situation and start identifying the joy in every moment
  • How to overcome self-doubt, and learn to celebrate your life and all of your achievements
  • The importance of finding what makes you happy, not what you ‘think’ should make you happy, and creating time for that in your life
  • How to steer yourself away from negative self-talk and build yourself up by focusing on the positive
  • The power of journaling, manifestation and setting your intentions each day to help you live a life you love
  • How to make little pieces of your day kinder and more enjoyable, and a whole lot more!

Robin Sharma: Master Your Mornings, Improve Productivity & Commit to Greatness – Your Dream Life Podcast Episode 12

This episode, Kristina speaks with one of her all-time favourite people – and a true inspiration – Robin Sharma. A best-selling author, globally respected humanitarian and one of the world’s top advisors on leadership and personal development, Robin’s clients include many Fortune 100 companies, famed billionaires and professional sports superstars.

Robin began his career as a lawyer, but decided to change direction and follow his dream of helping others by self-publishing his own books on leadership. But, as you can imagine, it wasn’t long before HarperCollins discovered his work and he has now grown to become one of the most broadly read authors in the world today.

His latest book, The 5am Club is now helping people everywhere to lead greater lives, maximise their productivity and embrace simple, yet effective formulas practised by many of the world’s greatest leaders.

Robin’s wisdom and advice has helped Kristina personally – as well as millions of people around the globe – to grow and start living their dream lives, and we hope you’ll feel just as inspired after hearing this episode.

Jo Fairley: Jumping in the Deep End & Taking Steps to Achieve Your Dreams – Your Dream Life Podcast Episode 11

Jo Fairley is our inspiring guest this episode – co-founder of the multi-million dollar Green & Black’s organic chocolate, editor and author of the Beauty Bible, motivational speaker, mentor, journalist, entrepreneur and all-round wonder woman. Driven by a passion for business and making a difference in the world, Jo’s list of successes and achievements is truly remarkable. Aptly named after the head-strong, determined character, Jo March from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, Jo credits her success to always following her passions, listening to her heart and generally rolling up her sleeves to get things done.

After leaving school at just 16, bored and disheartened by teachers who told her she would probably never amount to much, Jo was motivated by a passion to succeed in the real world and prove everyone wrong – and that she did!

By jumping head first into any role she found herself in, Jo became a sponge – learning every skill she could to succeed. And it wasn’t long before her passion and drive led her to become the UK’s youngest magazine editor – at just 23!

In a career spanning many years across a variety of areas, Jo now edits the Beauty Bible website and books with long-term friend and fellow beauty-lover, Sarah Stacey.

Another of Jo’s more recent ventures is The Perfume Society which sets out to help individuals develop their sense of smell by exploring fragrance and the scented world. As well as all this, she also owns a nine-room wellbeing centre and organic bakery in Hastings, UK where she is now living her ultimate dream life by the sea.

Jo’s passion for business and making a difference in the world is truly inspiring, and in this amazing episode you’ll discover….

  • The benefits of being thrown in the deep end, jumping out of your comfort zone and taking a gamble on something you’re passionate about
  • The importance of learning everything you can to make yourself knowledgeable, and overcoming ‘imposter syndrome’
  • The power of dreaming big, but also the importance of taking action and working hard to turn those dreams into reality
  • Simple and actionable advice for anyone looking to start a business out of their passions
  • How to overcome self-doubt by celebrating your strengths
  • The importance of staying true to yourself

and so much more!

“I found it truly inspiring how, even though she left school at just 16, Jo was able to create a success of herself through her passion, determination and hard work – and become one of the world’s most renowned businesswomen.” Kristina Karlsson

“Jo is such an amazing example of how no matter what your circumstances, if you’re willing to learn and work hard, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.” Kristina Karlsson

Emma Isaacs: Networking, Kindness & Winging It with Global CEO of Business Chicks – Your Dream Life Podcast Episode 10

Be inspired to take every opportunity this episode, as Kristina speaks with the incredible Emma Isaacs. Author of the best-selling book, Winging It and founder and Global CEO of Business Chicks – Australia’s largest and most influential networking community for women – Emma is driven by a passion to inspire women everywhere to be bold, courageous and take risks.

Born and raised in Sydney, Emma now lives in Los Angeles with her gorgeous family. Not only is she a best-selling author, leader of an international business for women and a serial property investor, she has also raised over $AU12 million for charity and is a mother to five beautiful young children.

Emma truly is amazing example of someone who seizes every opportunity and isn’t afraid to jump out of her comfort zone.

After dropping out of university at just 18 to follow her path, Emma became co-owner of a small recruitment company, beginning her career and sparking a true passion for business.

At just 26, a friend invited her along to a Business Chicks event and despite being initially offended (as the feminist she is) by the name ‘Business Chicks,’ Emma was so impressed by the event, she bought the company!

Emma has since grown Business Chicks from just 250 members into a global business that now operates in two continents, 11 cities and produces more than 100 events annually, with speakers including Sir Richard Branson, Seth Godin, Dr Brené Brown, Arianna Huffington, Diane von Furstenberg, Sir Bob Geldof, Jamie Oliver and so many more!

An absolute inspiration to us all, Emma is the first to admit that she’s just ‘Winging it’ most of the time – but living her life the best way she can!

In this amazing episode, you’ll discover…

  • The importance of taking every opportunity, jumping out of your comfort zone and making small changes to lead you on the path to your dream life
  • The power of embracing kindness in your everyday – not just kindness to others, but kindness to yourself
  • That it’s okay to ask for help on things that may be outside your strengths or interests
  • That, no matter how much things may change or how difficult things may seem, the important thing is to keep trying
  • How, by surrounding yourself with and connecting with inspiring people, you can move closer to achieving your dreams

And so much more!

“Emma is the perfect example of someone who isn’t afraid to put in the hard work and give something a try. Like me, she believes life is too short not to chase your dreams or live a life you love.” Kristina Karlsson

“What I love the most about Emma is her ability to focus on the truly important things in life, no matter how busy or crazy things may get.” Kristina Karlsson
