Sierra Leone. A former UK colony in West Africa ravaged by civil war. A place where a girl is more likely to be sexually assaulted than she is to go to high school. Let that sink in for a second…
A trip to Sierra Leone changed Chantelle Baxter‘s life. She came back to Australia looking for some volunteer work. And since no charity organisation would employ her she started her own. She was 23. That charity is OneGirl and their mission is to educate girls because little girls with dreams become women with vision.
In today’s episode I’m talking to Chantelle about her life-changing trip, her journey with OneGirl from their humble beginnings selling chocolate bars to raising millions of dollars, and about her plans for the future.
I am truly inspired by Chantelle. I hope she’ll inspire you, too.
Married young. Divorced. Married again. Abandoned. Bankrupt. And that’s just the beginning…
Megan’s story is about survival, resilience and a wonderful human spirit.
She has a heart of gold. She had gone through 2 broken marriages. She raised six children on her own. She was left with a huge debt and went through bankruptcy. She quit her job and literally turned rubbish into great treasures. She now helps and feeds hundreds of underprivileged people in PNG by teaching them how to weave purses, handbags, bracelets out of rubbish.
In early 2000’s I met my late teacher Jim Rohn at a seminar in Sydney, Australia. During his talk he highly recommended this classic book.
He said “I recommended this book to millions of people around the world and only a handful of them would actually go out and buy it. If you go and buy it today it will set you apart from the 90% of the population.”
That’s all I needed to hear. I borrowed the money from my colleague and bought the book that very day.
This book transformed millions of lives around the world, including mine. I truly hope it will do the same for you.
Now that the book is in public domain there is no excuse for you not to own a copy. I wish to pass on this incredible book to you. I hope it will help you find whatever it is you’re looking for. All you need to do is apply the simple techniques described in this book.
Sean ‘TS’ Redmond started his first coach training in 1997. He’s now a highly skilled and experienced business, leadership and team coach.
He was assessed in the top 1% in Australia for Abstract Reasoning (thinking outside the box if you like). He also gained an MBA in 2003 and has held executive positions in a number of different industries.
But that’s not the reason why I have Sean on the show.
I invited Sean for a talk because he has an inspiring story to share. Sean struggled with anxiety and depression for two decades. On several occasions he tried to take his own life. But after 20 years fighting the battle Sean beat the depression and turned his life around. Today he’s helping and teaching others how to defeat the depression in faster and more effective ways.
In this inaugural episode I’m sharing a bit of my life journey and also the chance encounter and the conversation I had with my late teacher, Mr Jim Rohn. That one conversation completely transformed my life and helped me become the person I am today.
