My recent conversations with Stephanie Kwong and Celinne Da Costa had a great impact on my life and helped me identify many of my bad habits, understand them and get rid of them... So I thought I would use these discussions to try and answer the question "How To Get To Know Yourself?" Both of these amazing women have a lot to teach us and approach this issue in their own way, making it possible for us to understand it even better! Don't forget to listen to the full interviews for more tips and details, straight from the horses' mouth! And while you're at it, you can also follow Waves Podcast on Instagram @wavespodcast!

Laura Rigon is an amazingly nice actor who lives between Melbourne and Los Angeles, also working as a model sometimes. She was kind enough to answer my questions in this super long episode of Waves Podcast. We talked about a looot of things but the main one was obviously her experience as an actor. She told me how she discovered acting, theater, why she decided to go to LA to look for new jobs, and shared a lot of interesting tips on how to start as an actor in the US coming from a different country! We obviously talked about a million other things, played a few games and I had a lot of fun recording this, so I'm hoping you will like it!

Celinne used to work a 9 to 5 job she didn't love that much, and realized it was slowly killing her creativity, until she decided to drop everything and go travel. For a year, she slept on friends' couches all around the world and met people from very different cultures. In this episode, she tells us all about her experience, how it changed her life and helped her start her business as a storyteller... And much more. Celinne is very open and finds it important to share her feelings in the most genuine and honest way, so she also got into deeper topics. Her life in the United States as an immigrant, dealing with depression and accepting her "low energy moments" to exploit her sensitivity in order to write and create more... Tons of tips and motivating stories in this episode! Please take a minute to visit Celinne's website !

This week's episode is about the comfort zone! I used a quote from one of my favorite songs to explore that matter, going from what is a comfort zone, the different levels it can have, why you may want to get out of it... And then took a different point of view for those who have already left it and are already succeeding: How not to fall back in it and how to beat nostalgia of former comfort. Here's an interesting video on this topic too: Why Comfort Will Ruin Your Life | Bill Eckstrom
TIDE #6: Choose Not To Care

TIDE #6: Choose Not To Care


What does "choosing" not to care mean? What does it imply? Should we just pretend we don't care? These are some questions I answer in this episode, in the hope that it might help you not only succeed as a creative or entrepreneur, but also feel better as a human being. The sources? Just an episode of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and a conversation I had with one of my friends! I mentioned the idea of Forgiveness quite a few times so here's a video by Vishen Lakhiani at Mindvalley that explains what it is. Why You Should Forgive People Who Hurt You | Vishen Lakhiani Using this to be able to let go of things and people that have hurt me in the past has been great for me so maybe you want to try too! Self-care for the win!
How to start comedy, making jokes as an introvert and the difference between doing stand-up and stripping... These are a few answers Shereen Kassam brings us in this episode. She tells us about her creative journey, her childhood, and why she went from a corporate career to comedy. An inspiring and motivating story that helps us understand how she got to where she is, and also proves one thing: It's never too late to start being creative. Shereen also tells us about her amazing podcast Creative Breakthrough, one of my favorite in the game, before focusing on the future and what's next for her!
I recently realized while talking to a friend that we don't all find our passion as easily. We don't discover that thing that makes us go "oh, I want to do that as often as possible" and consider trying to make it a job... So me and that friend had a chat about it and I summed it up as clearly as I could. I shared my experience and how I personally found my creative "voice", how it happened to me and how natural it was in order to maybe give you an idea how it could happen to you... And then I focused on what my friend told me, as she is still trying to figure out what is her passion, what is that thing she wants to do. Lucky for us, she reads a lot of books about that which probably helped her articulate her thoughts and in turn enabled me not to be too confusing. The gist? It's okay. Try things. Focus on your interests and see if they turn into a passion.
This week's episode of Waves Podcast is a bonus one! No guests, just me talking about something I find interesting, important... And as we get closer to Valentine's Day, I thought we should talk about something related to it. So this one's about love, self-love and single life, and although the title may seem negative at first, it really isn't. It's a funny reference to a book by someone I respect but... I said that on podcast already. I basically tried to explain the sentence "blabla are trash", said by women, then men and showed that everybody's just as "trash"... Plus what is "trash" even? Who decides what's trash behaviour? Isn't the problem a simple lack of communication? Spoiler alert: It might. And it could very well be solved by feminism, a better freedom of expression, and introspection that enables us to really think about what kind of relationship we want. Yes, I talked about all that in barely 30 minutes and ended up on the subject of confidence, what it is, how attractive it is to most people, and how it could help you find the one... Maybe? Who knows!
Youtuber Andrew James tells us about his journey as an artist, from his first video at 13 years old, to reaching 110,000 subscribers at only 17! He talks about creativity, motivation, starting making tutorials and seeing his channel blow up... Before getting into more personal and "serious" topics like bullying, finding his voice through filmmaking and what he thinks is the key to succeed on YouTube.

Matt Crawford Thank you so much Matt! I was so happy to read that I had to take time to talk about it again on the new episode! To be honest I've been thinking about this too for a while now, going like "what if someone had helped me like this guy helped Andrew?" and "What if they did and I didn't listen?" ... I mean it just brings up so many topics related to openmindedness, kindness and positivity in general! I hope you'll keep helping others like this, and that this story will inspire others to do the same! I'd love to talk about that with you on the podcast by the way!
