Listen on iTunes and Stitcher


This week James and Courtney talk to Madeleine Eames about her entrepreneurship journey.

Madeleine has a Masters in Social Work from the University of Toronto and a certificate from the Institute of Mind-Body medicine at Harvard University.

She is a yoga teacher and has worked in the field of mental health in various capacities before closing her busy private practice in June of 2017.

She made a transition to teaching classes in mindfulness and breathing techniques for healing anxiety, depression, chronic pain and more.

Madeleine will be releasing an online course called “Stop Worrying and Start Living” in January 2018 and will be launching a global meditation event called “One Breath Together” on New Years Day. Most recently she wrote and published a book of tools her clients have found useful called “Mindful Breathing: Simple, Powerful Tools to Heal Anxiety, Stress and More”.

Madeleine took us into the work of mental health offering practical breathing techniques we can use to calm our thoughts. She described how we could have anywhere from 40,000 to 70,000 thoughts per day and most of them are negative. The yoga enthusiast took us through her morning routine, breaking down how living in the moment and being aware of our feelings are some of the first steps to being mindful.

An expert in mental health, Madeleine explained to us what anxiety is and when it starts to become a serious issue. She gave us some details on identifying the symptoms and when to seek help.

This week James and Courtney interview @apolloplease about his entrepreneurship journey.

Apollo joins us at TCU headquarters to discuss his career path as an up and coming radio personality.

Listen to this episode to learn about Apollo’s approach to filling his toolbox with skills to prepare him for his dream career.

A natural to conversing Apollo shared with us his story from Brampton to Vancouver. Finding his passion for music and radio, and returning back home. We asked Apollo about overcoming obstacles while pursuing a career in the radio industry.  He talked about working on his skills before getting the opportunity to get on the air.

Apollo shared some advice

I don’t think I have accomplished the amount of success that I want to… But I have checked some goals off my list of things. Some actionable steps that I would suggest to anyone who is looking to do what I am doing


6 Tips by Apollo P
1. You have to live life as if there are no obstacles
2. If you are going to do something, do it right… don’t find shortcuts, don’t half-ass anything. Commit to the damn thing! 
3. Once you start something, see it all the way through… envision something and see through with your action and time, but also mentally envision yourself at the finish line. (Have a checklist to keep track your success) 
4. Concentrate your energy on one thing and focus on that one thing… doing too much will make that slip away from your goal. 
5. Invest in yourself so you know it’s real. If you aren’t willing to go broke on yourself don’t expect anyone else to. 
6. Look towards complete strangers as your way to success… your friends are your friends, but they are not your way out. “

We also discuss other major tips for success that Apollo used to create opportunities for himself such as: 
Filling his toolbox with skills. 
Learning to concentrate one ultimate goal. 
Laying groundwork and building an audience. 
Finding your own voice and filling a void in the market.

This episode was really helpful. It reinforced some things that I'm already doing and gave me a few more tips to try. For me, sometimes clearing my workspace means leaving spaces entirely and finding new ones entirely -- if I have only the tools I need for my task, I have nothing else to pull my attention (including well-intentioned family/friends.) Love listening to you guys right before getting into work mode...you help me get focused! - @Just_juanita
