Three more Mocha’s to go folks. I know I say this about all of the guests, but what I love most about the first Monday Mocha series is the diversity of guests. We’ve had equality in the sense that we’ve had the same about of females as we’ve had males. They all have an inspiring and individual story. Monday’s for me have become a day I look forward to than one that I dread. I hope it’s been the same for you as well.

This guest is someone I would say is the equivalent of the modern day cupid. I guess dating site and app creators are like that, right? Meet Robyn Exton – founder and CEO of lesbian/queer dating app – HER. The creation of the app was originally inspired when one of her best friends asked her for some advice on how to meet women. After working with a tech company, Robyn finally decided to bite the bullet and create HER, which is now operating in over 20 countries in the world.

“We look at the struggles and the unique patterns that women have and try and make an app that works best for women”

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.
