Description

I started the Driven Young Podcast as a way to help educate and inspire the younger generation. There are plenty of amazing podcasts out there but I find very few tailors their content to those in high-school and uni. Even the ones that claim they do seem to go off track and fail to keep their message clear and simple for the younger generation to understand.I believe our world is changing so fast, the current education system can’t keep up and is left teaching us old and outdated skills no longer relevant in the workplace.This podcasts explores what I believe should have been taught in school and aims to help people realise the world is different from when their parents grew up and we must make relevant decisions based on the world we live in currently not the world people used to live in.

38. Has Mental Health Become Too Normalised For GEN Z?
2803

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast.

Today is another episode all-around mental health for young people, how it is so prominent today and how we can deal with it.

I am joined by Andrew Woodhead, a product manager currently working at batyr, a for-purpose preventative mental health organisation, created and driven by young people for young people. He is also the author of the beautifully illustrated short story book called LIGHT. The book explains how depression can take hold, what it feels like and presents proven strategies that anyone can try, learn and practice to improve their mental health.

Woody and I have a great conversation all along this theme and dive deep into some stories I have heard about kids in school, how I think mental health has become way to normalized with young people to the point it can be detrimental and Woody shares his experiences and practical tips we can use to try help those around us.

This is a super important topic, mental health is at an all-time high for our generation and it is crazy the stories I am hearing from boys and girls in high-school.

As per usual, if you get any value from this episode or from the show please consider leaving a review it only takes you 2 minutes and really helps the show reach more people, let me know what you think of this episode and don’t hesitate to reach out to me on or Woody on Instagram.

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast…

Today’s episode I have a seriously amazing guy on. He is a Travel vlogger with over 500,000 followers online and one of the most down to earth people I have met.

Luke Damant reached out to me a while back as a listener of the show just to let me know he really enjoyed it, we chatted a bit and I invited him out to lunch.

Since then he has come along to some meetups I’ve been too, he has joined the 5:30 am club and started his own club where he lives.

As I mentioned Luke is a 20-year-old dude who basically travels around making videos and getting paid to do so. Well this was before COVID, but now he has started a digital marketing agency to help others grow their brand the way he has grown his.

In this conversation, we get into his story and we start off with a Bang. A literally bang as Luke goes into detail about a horrific accident he had in India which left him nearly without a hand, and how that experience affected him. We get into how to grow a following like he has, how he was able to travel for free leveraging social media, we talk about Tik Tok culture, Youtube, being grateful, how to stop caring what others think and so much more.

Please note Lukes attitude throughout this episode. As we are discussing his near-death experience, he is laughing and having a good time talking about, he is almost grateful I would say. He talks about how by setting no expectations you can’t be disappointed and as a result, you will always be grateful for what you have, and you can really hear him living this when he retells his stories.

As per usual, if you get any value from this episode or from the show please consider leaving a review, let me know what you think and don’t hesitate to reach out to me on or Luke Instagram, Luke reached out to me and now he’s here on the show!

3328

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP

Question form (please fill out)

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast 

I believe there are 3 essential things we should be learning in school that every single student will use in their life.

  1. Financial management and how to manage money 
  2. Understanding how to manage relationships 
  3. Nutrition and what we should be putting in our bodies

Today’s episode we are diving deep into number three. I have brought on an incredible nutritionist to discuss health, food and overall nutrition for young people like yourself.

Alice Bleathman is an Accredited Practising Dietitian & Nutritionist.

Bloated belly? Stressed and confused about what to eat? Alice has been there. Having been personally diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Alice knows the struggles of people face first hand, which is why she is so passionate about helping people on their own health journey. Her approach is supportive, comprehensive and inclusive. The perfect mix of sugar and spice. 

And in this episode, we are discussing all things health and nutrition. Specifically for gen z.

We get into why health is so important, the benefits of a good diet (aside from just looking good), we talk about veganism, the goods and the bad, how 83% of people are dying from preventable causes, why we are so addicted to sugar, we give some practical tips so you can improve your health now and so much more.

As per usual, if you want to find out more about Alice, her links are in the bio, don’t forget to reach out to me on Instagram with any questions and if you get any value out of the show please consider leaving a review on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you listen.

34. How to Open 1000 Doors in Your Life and Why There is Beauty In Uncertainty with Joe Whebe

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP

Question form (please fill out)

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast.

Today is an interesting conversation with a very interesting man. I have really loved getting younger people on the show lately, even though they lack the experience of some of my older guests I feel like they bring much more relatability for you and me.

If you are a regular listener you may have heard me briefly speak about a project involving a retreat and a book I am working on. 

Recently I was introduced to a guy who was running a retreat with 9 other people. The goal of the retreat is to go away and together we are writing a book for advice we would give our 18-year-old selves. Which is essentially what this podcast is all about, the advice I would give to my younger self.

Today’s guest is the guy who ran the retreat, Joe Wehbe. Joe is a psychology student turned non-for-profit worker, turned real estate agent, turned to business owner and connector

He is a close friend of mine and in today's chat I would say there are two parts to this episode

Part one, we spend time discussing what to do after school, Joe shares his experience with university and we get into why we think society is pushing us into careers we don’t enjoy. We talk about Joe got a high ATAR and felt like his identity was wrapped up in his marks, causing him to give up his dream of film making. 

Part two we dive into some amazing and simple concepts that will literally change your life. I don’t say this lightly, but I have used these concepts in my life and has definitely changed my life. We discuss the 1000 doors concept, why you need to focus on an audience of none as well as many others.

If you enjoy this episode or the show please consider leaving a review, I don’t make any money off this show and I work on it full time and leaving a review really helps me out. Also, feel free to DM on Instagram, I’m super responsive there and love to chat with you all.

33. Masculine vs Feminine Energy EXPLAINED
2529

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP

Question form (please fill out)

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast…

Today’s episode we are switching it up. No more business or personal development, this episode is all about masculine and feminine energies, relationships between men and women and understanding that we are different and need to approach each other differently.

After having some videos blow up on Tik Tok about masculinity, showing emotions, I received hundreds of comments about how grateful people where that someone was talking about this.

So I decided to dedicate an entire episode to this topic. In this episode, I bring on Tylah Jane who is a midwife delivering babies full time. I met her at a retreat and we got into a deep discussion about masculine and feminine energies and I thought this would be a great conversation for you guys to hear.

This ended up being an awesome conversation that is really important for young people to be aware of.

For some reason, school doesn’t teach us anything about relationships and how to handle them, yet everyone who graduates school will need to have those skills for life.

So that is what this episode is all about!

As per usual, please consider leaving a rating or review on the show if you are enjoying it or get any value of it, and feel free to reach out to me on Instagram to let me know what you thought of this episode.

32. The 6 Pillars of Success that will set you up in life (MUST LISTEN) with Brent Williams
4941

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP

Question form (please fill out)

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast and I am just going to say off the bat this is probably my favourite episode I have done so far.

It is definitely top 3 but it aligns to heavily with what this show is all about I am so excited about what you are about to listen too.

If you listened to the last episode I did with Dale, you will know he mentioned starting a personal development company for teenagers with his friend back in 2001. Well, this is his friend Brent Williams.

And 20 years later that company is going strong. As Co-Founder and Head Presenter of Empower U, Brent has been busy helping young people go through the life-changing seminar across Australia and around the world. At 19, he co-wrote the best selling book, The World At Your Feet, with Dale Beaumont

Brent is also a highly sought after keynote speaker for both the corporate and school environments, teaching the simple yet powerful success principles he teaches at Empower U. Brent has been nominated twice for the Young Australian of the Year, and has won the Generation Y Young Leaders Award with Dale for their work with Empower U.

Empower you is all about teaching young people practical life skills, and I am in love with what Brent is doing. In this episode we get into his story and why he started the company.

He teaches us the 6 pillars of success every young person should know, we talk about mental health and why so many people are suffering from it, Brent shares with us a social media experiment he did to help remove our addition to phones, we get into why school is failing us and what we should be learning… and that is just scratching the surface….

This is the longest episode I have ever done because we just couldn’t stop talking, we spoke for another hour off camera and he invited me to attend his upcoming events and see how he runs things.

So if you are new here you have chosen an epic episode to start on, and if you are a regular listener I know you are going to love this. If you can, try to give the entire episode a listen, we cover some important stuff at the end.

Check out Brent!

28. From Washing Cars to CEO of a Multi Million Dollar Company with Carlos Ferri
4435

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP

Question form (please fill out)

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast, today I have another awesome episode for you.

In this episode, I sit down with Young Entrepreneur of the year Carlos Ferri an entrepreneur who in the space of just over a decade has built an empire of successful high-growth companies with services in transport, logistics, warehousing, HR and labour-hire.

All under the banner of Zapala Corp, Ferri's enterprises have a global presence, meet untapped needs, are scalable and lift the efficiency of the industries they're in.

Ten years ago he made the decision to come to Australia from Brazil and decided to learn English. He realised about 12 months in, his English was getting better and he made a decision to start up Zapala, 10 years later the has more than 100 employees in Australia, Singapore and Brazil.

My chat with Carlos today is fantastic, I am not even sure what to say because we cover so many topics. We start off with his story and how he started from nothing when he moved to Australia, how he got to where he is, understanding how business works and the mindset we need to have and so much more.

Carlos is actually the second Brazillian I have had on the show, Gabriella from episode 18 was also from Brazil and man the two of the work hard. As someone who grew up in New Zealand and Australia, I think I often forget how lucky we have it and how much opportunity there is for us. Because when far less fortunate people are able to move here the opportunity is so clear to them and they don’t stop until they get to where they want to be.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this episode, please shoot me a message on Insta if you would like and leave a review if you are enjoying the show, that would mean a lot to me.

27. Why Does Our Generation Suffer From Such High Levels of Mental Health?
2270

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast, if you are new here welcome, great to have you

Today’s episode is a relaxed and easy to listen to conversation about why Gen z’s and Millenials suffer from high levels of mental health problems.

A recent study shows 70% of senior high school students report the need to see a mental health professional and I am sure you can see this with the people you hang out with.

So why is this? What is different about our generation? Did other generations suffer from this? Are we just weak or is there more at play here?

I discuss this and more with today’s guest Clint Adams a former police officer and counsellor who helps teams and individuals with resilience and mental health

He is also the author of “igniting the blue flame” a book exploring teen suicide going into the mind of someone suffers from mental health problems.

I hope you enjoy this episode and make sure to leave a review if you got some value out of it.

26. Why Dating is So Screwed Up For Gen Z | Relationships, Ghosting, Hookup Culture and More
3197

JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP

Question form (please fill out)

Today we are switching it up a bit and going deep into a topic I have wanted to cover for a long time

Dating and relationships for Gen Z.

Because it is so different and we are experiencing so many different things previous generations never had to deal with.

Things like

  • Ghosting, is it okay
  • How hyper-focused on sex we are
  • Are we in a competition of who can care less?
  • Why are we so strategic about our responses?
  • We are overloaded with options 

This and many more topics are what I cover in today’s episode with Natasha Larcos

Growing up in Europe, Natasha is a gen z just like you and I and has dated in many different places from around the world giving her a unique perspective on Australia’s toxic dating world.

She is also the co-host of the “Officially Unofficial” podcast, a podcast all about dating and exploring relationships.

This episode is something I have wanted to cover for a while now, but I really wanted to bring in someone young who understands what gen z are going through. 

Because things like Tinder and other apps are so new, previous cultures are unaware of the struggles gen z face when it comes to dating, sex and relationships.

So it today’s conversation we discuss all of this in detail, from the perspective of a gen z male and female.

And for any young listeners, this is a mature conversation… there is now crude language or explicit detail and I really think this conversation will be very valuable to you so please don’t click away!

22. The Millennial Crisis All Young People Are Facing That Previous Generations Didn't Have
2642

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast…

Today I am joined by Demi Kotsoris, who specialises in the “Millenial Crisis”. She explores open conversations on Millennial topics and educating Millennials on different ways the modern world allows them to do things - aiming to empower them to take action.

I understand businesses can not keep up with the ever-changing digital world and believe that communication and transparency are shared as workplace values but are not showcased in workplace actions.

My research on Millennials in the workplace shows how important community, being valued, flexibility and open communication are important for not only the mental health and wellbeing of employees but for all-round business success.

Today we discuss the difference between millennials and Gen Z, we get into her story, why she does what she does, how she is able to run her business from her bedroom, the millennial crisis, what is it? Internships, travel and much more.

As per usual the full video will be up on Youtube and across all my social media platforms so feel free to check it out there or reach out to me.

21. Why Chasing Your Dream Should be Your Number ONE Priority, and How To Actually Do it
3016

Welcome back to the Driven Young Podcast…

The podcast has been growing fast lately after so if you are new welcome!

Today’s conversation is exciting. It is super relevant for younger people, regarding chasing your dream, different options coming out of high school, what to do if you don’t enjoy your degree, the power of storytelling and more,...

With over 15 years in the corporate world, leading, training, and developing leaders, and the height of his career, overseeing 5 states in the USA with 293 locations under his leadership, Today’s guest John Bourgeois decided to leave the corporate world.

After a decade of dreaming, John decided to stop making excuses and start catching his dreams.

What originally started as writing a book, has evolved into a movement of Dreamcatchers, where John and his community are tired of chasing their dreams and are now catching them.

His sole mission is to help millions of Dreamcatchers around the world stop chasing their dreams and start to catch them. 

Through coaching, podcasting, books, speaking and live events, he is able to initiate changes that transforms businesses, relationships and overall quality of life.

He is also the author of the Amazon #1 Best Selling book, The Pen and Its Author, and is working on his second book that is set to release in 2020.

Thanks to Corona Virus I have had to do a few online interviews, which I am not a fan of. But there is only a few, I am back to in-person interviews now and I have some epic ones coming up so keep an eye out for them.

2471

Today’s episode is all about finance, budgeting and saving for young people and how you can use it to get a head start in life.

When I think of the most important topics we didn’t learn in school and what I want to cover on this show, Financial literacy and a basic understanding of how to budget, save and invest your money is hands down one of the biggest topics.

That is why today I sit down with business owner, mortgage broker and financial expert to discuss what he thinks young people like yourself need to be learning in high school when it comes to finance and investing.

I know money isn’t the most exciting topic but it is one of the most important things we should be learning seeing as everyone uses money and needs it to survive.

18. Failing High-school to Graduating Harvard with Gabriela Rosa and Her Insane Story
4369

Today is a very interesting episode 

I am joined by Gabriela Rosa a world-renowned fertility specialist, host of the Fertility Challenge™ and the founder and clinical director of the Rosa Institute—an organization dedicated to helping couples create healthy babies, despite previous reproductive challenges.

So why have I bought on a fertility specialist?

Because today we don’t speak about fertility but instead get into Gabriella’s insane story, how she went from a 17 out of 100 end of year score (ATAR) to graduating from Harvard 20 years later, how she has built a successful business and served over 130,000 clients worldwide, the importance of work ethic, how she travelled across the world at 15 and lived on her own without financial support and learnt 2 new languages and much more.

Gabriela is an Author, speaker, business owner, mother and a very inspiring person as you will soon find out. Please pay attention to how insane her growing up story is and how she completely failed highschool but was still able to build a successful business, get accepted into Harvard and generate enough money to cover the insane Harvard tuition fees + back and forth travel between Australia and America while still running a business, pass the course and raising 2 children.

So sit back and enjoy because there is so much gold in this episode and I know you are going to get so much value from it.

3047

This weeks episode is super powerful.

Today I am joined by a Survival expert and trained psychotherapist who runs camps and retreats in the Australian bush for kids, young adults and men and women.

We actually met at a camp years ago then reconnected when I went on a men’s retreat with him where we had to survive overnight in the bush with nothing but a blanket.

Lee has been using Jon Young's coyote mentoring approach for over a decade and began learning and teaching bushcraft as a teenager at the Forest School Camps in the UK. He studied primitive survival skills at Tom Brown Jr's Tracker School, and Practical Primitive, both in the US, and spent a year living in the bush, finding shelter, water and food on the landscape; putting it into practice.

 More than that, he found a radically new experience of what it means to be human.

Today we discuss Lee’s story, how he got into survival, what he has learned as a psychotherapist, how he was able to reconnect with himself after spending a year in the wilderness, the different ways men and women show emotion and much more.

This is a jam-packed episode and I really enjoyed listening to it again whilst I edited it, there are so many awesome take ways and I really hope you enjoy.

Today's episode is going to be a little different; this week, I decided to interview a guest overseas. He is based in Sweden…. and is only 13 years old.

Next to him in this interview is his incredible father, and together they run a podcast called "Invest in you" focusing on helping people get control of their finances among many other things.

Charlie is still a Jnr at high-school but has already started his entrepreneurial journey.
Fredrick, his father, has multiple companies throughout the UK and mainly around finance and property.

We explore entrepreneurship from a young age and talk about how social is affecting us and how it can be used to create money. Charlie gives his point of view as a 13-year-old on some exciting topics, and I get to see how his father has created a world of opportunity for him to follow his passion.

1. Money 101, How to Save and Build a Strong Financial Foundation For Your 20's
2609

When I think of important topics that were barely covered in school, getting control of your finances has got to be at the top of that list.

  • Simple Finance,
  • Interest, what the hell is it?
  • Implementing a saving strategy from a young age
  • How to buy a home in your 20s
  • Should you buy a new car?
  • How to live in Sydney at a young age
  • Credit cards

All of this and more is covered in the first episode of the driven young podcast.

I am your host Byron Dempsey and today’s guest is entrepreneur/mortgage broker Aaron Christi David. He runs a company called Atelier wealth alongside his wife and specialises in helping people buy a home or investment property.

This may not sound too exciting but it is so important we learn this stuff early on so we don’t reach 30 years old with no savings and no financial assets.

INTRO What Is Driven Young All About?
162

I started the Driven Young Podcast as a way to help educate and inspire the younger generation. 

I believe our world is changing so fast, the current education system can’t keep up and is 
left teaching us old and outdated skills no longer relevant in the workplace.

This podcast explores what I believe should have been taught in school and aims to help people realise the world is different from when their parents grew up and we must make relevant decisions based on the world we live in currently not the world people used to live in.
