From Personal Tragedy to Speaking on 3,000 Stages - Carren Smith

Today’s guest, Carren Smith, is known as one of Australia’s most exciting and dynamic motivational speakers - an extraordinary human being who exudes positivity and success. But how is this possible? After finding her partner having committed suicide, falling into depression herself, she decided to go to Bali to attempt to heal... only to find herself in a burning inferno with half of her head blown off. Barely, she made it back to Australia knowing she were never to see her friends again…

In this episode, we talk about what made her survive, the creation of her book Soul Survivor, how she after her initial attempts to speak on stage was advised to not do it again as she was no good at it.

Listen to Carren’s heart-breaking, yet inspiring story and what has enabled her to become such a source of positivity and love.

From Shame and Guilt to Dancing on Ice - Jason Gardiner

Jason Gardiner is known in the UK as a singer, dancer, choreographer and TV personality, being a celebrity judge on Dancing On Ice and more.

Jason shares his powerful journey of growing up with shame and guilt from being ostracized and bullied, not feeling comfortable expressing who he was, to becoming a celebrity, but then completely losing his voice.

After vocal surgery, he wasn’t sure he would ever be able to speak, let alone sing again. He was told, “the chances of you ever being able to sing again are so slim”. He shares what he did to heal, and what he discovered during the times when he wasn’t able to use his voice, how it made him have to listen more and what it taught him about other people’s stories and their bottled-up voices.

Inspired by several life-defining moments, he has now created his one-man-show “IN THE CLOSET” that premiered in London to extraordinary reviews.

Listen to Jason’s powerful story and insights.
