My interview with Magic Barclay

Season 4, Ep. 9

I interviewed Magic Barclay. Magic has been a single mother of two for the past 10 years. In that time, stress and the roller coaster of life have seen her face her mortality a number of times. Cancer, Lyme disease, stroke, Diabetes, Heart attack, and hypoxia survivor- Magic has seen how treating the root cause of any illness gives you the tools to acquire a level of health you only dreamed possible.

Magic is a Mould Toxicity Master Practitioner, an expert in the PNEI (Psycho Neuro Endo Immunology)of Trauma, an Advanced Immune Practitioner, and an Advanced Practitioner in Innate Immunity and Functional Health Solutions. Magic is also a practitioner of Lymphatic Mojo and CMLD (Complex Manual Lymphatic Drainage).

Magic is the author of 4 books and a sought-after speaker. Magic is also the host of "A Magical Life- health, wealth and weight loss". never truly felt well. After surviving a rough childhood, torn between a narcissist of a father and an unfeeling and emotionally neglectful mother, Magic stated "I learned that I was the only one I could depend on'. "I always felt like 'the black sheep' and found it hard to trust anyone". In my teens, my lack of control in my life led to anorexia and binge eating disorders. My weight was about all I could truly take charge of. By the age of 17, I had also become a binge drinker- leading to becoming an alcoholic by age 21. After transferring this lack of self-relationship to relationships with others, I found myself at the end of a string of emotionally vacuous and harmful relationships- culminating in a marriage to a narcissist (don't all girls end up marrying a version of their father?). Those self-esteem issues came back and again via my weight- I protected myself by becoming morbidly obese. That was the only way my body could physically be off-limits to an abusive husband (or so I thought). After enduring 14 years of being told I was ugly, worth nothing, a horrible mother, and much more- I left! I packed the kids, dogs, and cats into the car, loaded a truck, and fled town. Listen to her story and be challenged to change.

I strongly encourage everyone to buy her books follow her and be transformed by her insights.

Everyone has a story, and this is her story.

My interview with Peter Anthony

Season 4, Ep. 11
I interviewed Peter Anthony. Peter has a master’s in communication from Sydney University and is the author of (Collabradabra: the magic of collaborative conversations). He is an expert in helping you influence customers, stakeholders, and donors, and to win pitches to them.  With forty years of experience in three professions on four continents. Pater stated, "In a nutshell, I learned to influence, not sell, and to pitch with a story, not a presentation". After studying economics and law at Sydney University he had his first taste in sales at IBM after a year of sales training before being allowed to sell to customers. Peter said that he found early on that the less he tried to sell the more his customers bought from him. He did the opposite of traditional selling and made the 100% Sales Club without ever selling. In 2005 Peter started his own consulting business from a laptop on his kitchen bench. Fortunately, two clients – Fairfax and Nestle – supported him then and remained clients for 10 years. The business boomed and over the next fifteen years, he worked on pitches for clients in Australia, the Middle East, China, and the US. He finally crafted his storytelling pitching method so that he could teach it to others, and his business kept growing because of his winning pitches. Recently, Peter has developed NFP experience by working with the Fred Hollows Foundation, International Justice Mission, and UNICEF. I strongly encourage everyone to buy his book, follow him, and be transformed by his insights.Everyone has a story, and this is his story.Below are the sites that house his work. this show:
