Season Three

MONDAY MOCHA WITH MADAME GANDHI

 

Hello all! Ah, it’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve caught up hey? We’ve got a couple of episodes of The Ginni Show coming out – and this one is the last Monday Mocha. Oh no!

But, I wanted to finish the last Monday Mocha of Season 3 with a bang.

Madame Gandhi, otherwise known as Kiran Gandhi was MIA’s drummer. Now, taking a leap into her own solo career and channeling all the feminine energy she can, she is teaching unity and female empowerment through her music. I had the pleasure of having her on Monday Mocha and we spoke about the quality of coffee in Sri Lanka, being from south Asia and stepping into your own truth.

It’s Monday Mocha with Madame Gandhi!

MONDAY MOCHA WITH CHRIS HOWSON

Today’s Monday Mocha is with someone who I’ve known for a number of years, but have never met. Remember back in the day when we used to have Pen-Pals? This guy is kinda like my pen pal except we’ve never written a letter to each other. I used to listen to his morning show on Proud FM in Canada and he used to listen to mine on JOY 94.9 with Adam Samuel.

We followed each other on Twitter, added each other to facebook – sent emoji’s across the web here and there, but we’d actually never spoken. So, this is actually the first ever conversation we’ve had, live in person. Not through listeners or any listening device, but an actual conversation.

What I love about these chats are they are so authentic – you have so much to talk about and you already feel like you know the person. Similarly to me, Chris recently moved to Phuket, Thailand for a radio job where he is the station manager of Live 89.5. We learn about how a series of events from being fired on air from his breakfast gig, having his TV show canceled and his partner break up with him that forced him to reassess his direction and landed him exactly where he is. Another thing you should know about Chris is that he has Brooke Shield’s eyebrows. Take a closer look.

#26 THE WHY

What is your why?

It sounds like one of the most simple questions, but it’s so powerful that it can determine any outcome and the understanding behind every outcome.

A lot of business leaders and inspirational speakers talk about “the why,” behind a product or action and how this is what gravitates an outcome to it.

If you can put the time into understanding your why – your personal why and the “why” behind your business project or any project for that matter. You’ll find that the more you pay attention to this, naturally, the results and outcomes you desire will happen!

MONDAY MOCHA WITH DR CHRIS ZAINO

Wow, today’s Monday Mocha I could have almost done without the actual Mocha.

I’m kidding. Why did I say that? I hope the mochas didn’t hear me.

The episode had so much fire in it that you almost didn’t need a Mocha or any caffeinated beverage to get through it.

It’s no secret that one of my favorite podcasts is The Gary Vee Audio Experience. Gary talks a lot about hustle, hard work and making content. Dr. Chris Zaino DM’d me on Instagram about my podcast and said some nice things. Checking out his channel, I could tell this dude was the real deal. A true hustler and above all sets his purpose to drop pieces of light, truth, and authenticity in the world. Sometimes with time aligns and the universe presents you with an opportunity in the guise of a person, event, circumstance or place, you just need to be in the flow of allowing it to come through without question.

So when I did that, this awesome Podcast came to life! Chris shares his story about beating a terminal illness, his workout regime and morning practice which involves waking up at 5 am, reading, being inspired and, check this out – he has a phone holder, charger, and player in his bathroom. Safe to say we know what his answer to, “do you take your phone to the bathroom with you,” is.

#25 GREAT EXPECTATIONS (NOT BY DICKENS)

Happy New Year everyone!

How did you spend it? I’m guessing most of you made New Years Resolutions? Did you know that stats say that 80% of resolutions fail by February? So we’re halfway on the way to failing already!

It was New Years Resolutions that actually inspired this episode. The very fact that when it comes to the end of one year and the beginning of the next, we make goals, resolutions, lists of things we want to achieve by the end of the next year. Naturally, this sets expectations.

What I’m more interested in, and where I feel I can bring you some value is, the conversation you’re having with yourself around these expectations. It’s a lot more important than you think. These words or goals we may put on paper is a promise we want (and hope) to make to ourselves. And when we don’t achieve these or set out to achieve these, this is where it impacts our self-esteem and crushes our hope. If you can, be mindful of your micro goals. Focus on the little steps. Break down the big goals into realistic and achievable steps.

Now, go have a loving conversation with yourself.

MONDAY MOCHA WITH DR SEKU GATHERS

Happy New Year Everyone!

So last week, you got a dose of “The Ginni Snow.” I couldn’t get the episode out as I was snowed in! But safe to say the actual “Ginni Show,” is back on Wednesday. It’s been crazy cold weather here in New York. I got my first experience in shovelling show. It was fun until I couldn’t feel my hands anymore. The other fun part of  snow is knowing how much to layer. It’s a catch. If you layer too much, it means that every single establishment you walk into, there’s a potential that you have to de-layer and that takes time. Otherwise you can just risk potentially sweating up a storm.

Nonetheless, it’s the perfect time to warm up with a mocha. This week’s guest is filmmaker, podcaster and emergency physician Dr Seku Gathers. You may have heard his podcast – The Truth Prescription which is out today and every other Monday. We talk about money versus passion and legacy, why it’s important to audit the closest people around you and an attempt to teach me some “hood,” talk.

#24 SMILES CAN CHANGE LIVES

When you move to a bigger city, everything is amplified. More people, more cars on the road, more fashion….more happy and even more crazy.

Even though the initial move is exciting as you’re about to embark on a new adventure, when the excitement is over, human beings naturally tend to be complacent. The excitement dies down and we give into the daily grind. There’s so many things that are being communicated to us. So many opportunities to be kinder that we let pass us by…even in the slightest exchange.

There’s always a opportunity to be that little bit kinder. It doesn’t always have to be about money. It can be simple as smiling at a stranger. That’s completely free. There’s so many expressions, in so many cities and flavours all around the world – especially at this time. So, I’m going to leave you with this thought before the holidays. When you wake up each day, think to yourself, how can I be that little bit kinder? Is there someone I can smile at today?

Smile. It can make someone’s day. Especially yours.

MONDAY MOCHA WITH JOEL BEASLEY

Hello everyone!
Wow, a week before Christmas exactly! Have you been naughty or nice? Either way I hope Santa is good to you. I’m currently sitting at a café in Brooklyn waiting for my next guest. This guy has had amazing success. He learned to code when he was just 13 – can you believe it? When I was 13, my milestone was the fact that Ammi actually let me go to and from school unescorted for the most part. My next guest sold his first technology at 18 for a million dollars. WOW! He’s now one of the most exciting Chief Technology Officers in the world. So, let’s go have a Monday Mocha with Joel Beasley.

#23 YOUR BOLDEST CHEERLEADERS

This Episode is about resistance to the one thing that is only consistent in our lives – Change. My belief is that there are two types of humans – those who live in curiosity and those who take curiosity as a gateway to opportunity, evolution and experiences. Sometimes those who live in curiosity as just happy doing that. They’re happy living vicariously through others and it brings them joy that they can do that. And then there are those who make commentary, judgements and form unhealthy dialogue. Generally it’s because it’s coming from a place of regret or resentment that they weren’t able to live out their dreams for whatever reason.

The point of this episode is to encourage you. If you’re not doing something or living a life that makes you truly happy because you’re worried about what others will say – stop. It’s enough. You’ve lived your whole life this way and nothing is going to miraculously change. Unless you change the amount of validation and weight that you carry in other people’s beliefs about the way you life your life.

Surround yourself with your boldest cheerleaders. That unconditional support you get from your tribe. Fill your mind and your space with those voices, that energy – because at the end of the day, if you’re truly happy doing what you do and many moments of your life hold that joy, everything else, simply doesn’t matter.

Go be you. Go be happy. You don’t need mine or anyone else’s permission.

MONDAY MOCHA WITH TOMBOY TIRADE

This Monday Mocha Episode is a special tribute. Why I started this particular podcast on top of the usual Wednesday episodes of The Ginni Show is that I wanted to help you start your Monday’s with that extra spring in your step that may or may not have a helping hand from a caffeinated beverage of some sort.

This episode is a special tribute to Persis Shanker – one of the hosts of Tomboy Tirade – one of Asia’s biggest girl podcasts. I’m joined by Persis herself and her co hosts Joanna, Raven and Siti. Persis sadly passed away earlier this year and I wanted to hold off on this episode and release it at the right time. The first interview I did with Persis was when I was staying at a friend’s place in Brooklyn. Funnily enough, that place is now my home in New York so it’s only fitting that I release this podcast now. Here’s a special Monday Mocha tribute to Persis Shanker of Tomboy Tirade.
