Monday Mocha

MONDAY MOCHA WITH NICHOLAS STONE

We’re a month into The Monday Mocha Series. I’m loving the responses we’re getting to these so far. Some of you have expressed just how much you’re learning from these coffee dates and it brings me much joy! For those of you who have popped by for the first time to have a cuppa with me – this podcast is a chance to have a break from my Aunties, Ammi and 170 cousins featured on my Wednesday podcast and hear the journey of an inspiring individual from some part of the world. As you all know, I love talking. A lot.  The reason for starting the Monday Mocha podcast is that through the teachings and lessons I have the privilege of sharing with you every week that have come from my teachers; I am still a student in pursuit of more knowledge, self awareness and tools to cultivate more of the good things we need more of in this world. Each Monday, I’ll be having a chat to a guest who has much wisdom to share that we can all benefit from – to light up our day that little bit brighter.

It will literally feel like you’re sitting right there, having coffee with us. So c’mon, let’s have a Mocha!

“I love stories. Something that I absolutely crave is listening to people’s stories; what excites them, what’s their passion and how they’ve dealt with challenges.

The first few Monday Mocha’s of this series were all with New Yorkers. So I guess it’s about time I had a coffee with a fellow Aussie. Who happens to live in New York. Nicholas Stone is the CEO and Founder of Bluestone Lane; a Melbourne inspired coffee shop raising the standard of coffee palates amongst New Yorkers with the true coffee snobbery we seem to have down under. With already a handful of cafes in New York and soon to be three in Philly, the Bluestone love is set to spread across the country.

“Everyday, do something that furthers your career. If you put time into it every single day, it has to grow.”

This week, my guest is someone I’ve been lucky enough to have quite a few Mocha’s (and other beverages) with. One of the hardest working artists I know – pumping out new music frequently, slaying it on social media and gigging all over the world. Some have dubbed her the “Queen of House Music,” and a voice that could fill an entire stadium; Inaya shares her pearls of wisdom with us over coffee.

MONDAY MOCHA WITH NOAH MICHELSON

Week Two of The Monday Mocha Series.

“I was 28 when I wanted a new career. You’re never too old to try something new. If you’re 29 or 48 or 52 and you wanna do something – I say go do it.”

My guest this week is one of my favourite people in media. He is simply adorable and amidst his crazy busy schedule, he always makes time to see me when I’m in New York. From landing in New York with a Poetry Degree and $80,000 in debt, Noah volunteered his time to work as an intern for Out Magazine during the day, and took up odd jobs to pay rent in the evenings. Now, he heads up the Huffington Post Queer Voices Section as Executive Editor. Anyway, enough spoilers from me. Have a listen.

MONDAY MOCHA WITH CLAUDE SILVER

Kicking of the first of The Monday Mocha Series today. It’s a chance to have a break from my Aunties, Ammi and 170 cousins and hear the journey of an inspiring individual from some part of the world. As you all know, I love talking. A lot. It’s very apparent with the regular Wednesday podcasts. The reason for starting the Monday Mocha podcast is that through the teachings and lessons I have the privilege of sharing with you every week that have come from my teachers; I am still a student in pursuit of more knowledge, self awareness and tools to cultivate more of the good things we need more of in this world. Each Monday, I’ll be having a chat to a guest who has much wisdom to share that we can all benefit from – to light up our day that little bit brighter.

It will literally feel like you’re sitting right there, having coffee with us. So c’mon, let’s have a Mocha!

Side note – I know my Melbourne peeps are probably throwing me a bit of shade and judgement with their coffee palates. I hear you. But I stand true to the fact that a Mocha is a REAL coffee.

“I would rather teach and coach someone to take up space in the room and be big in the room than dealing with a fearful ego.”

My first guest is the world’s first Chief Heart Officer – Claude Silver. She’s not quite the conventional Heart Surgeon as her title may imply, but her procedural and operating skills on the heart have a different kind of touch to the scalpel and defribulator. Claude’s role is to assist in building the best human empire in the history of time by building a space where employees feel physically and psychologically safe to be their best selves. She coaches and guides to touch the lives of those who work at VaynerMedia – one of the hottest digital agencies in the world, each and every day.
