Today on the show we are learning from Zoe Marshall. The founder and host of The Deep Podcast.

From terminal parents to sex workers, extremists, and drug addicts, The Deep is a place for ... More

Welcome Back. Here are the six quick questions. So question number one, what's your, why? Why are you doing this every single day? I think it's my wine life. It's not just my wine work and I was talking about this last night with my bestie is connection. So I feel wholehearted and passionate and of service when I am connected to others or are fostering connections. So that is my why in life and that is I guess the why of the deep is people feel yeah, connected to something or someone I think impacts just really important to have as part of your life in whatever business you're doing or whatever you're doing in your community. If you have impact, it helps with that feeling of more fulfillment and contentment and those things that you can struggle with if you don't have it?

I love that question. Number two is what's been your favorite marketing moment so far for the show. Always the banner, always the apple banner. The apple banner is the most exciting moment for anyone being number one in Australia was pretty epic. Actually We are top five in the top, not top five, we are in the top five, sub A N. Z. And we're top 25 worldwide. So that's fun too. Is that a marketing thing? I don't know. Yeah. Hell yeah, that's great. Cool. Yeah, I love that view. That's fun. That's fun question. Number three, what is your go to resource when it comes to business. If you have to think about like a podcast book. Great answer great answer. Tasha is my one stop shop, like I, I don't think anyone will ever like, I will eventually need to just take her and take her away and be all mine, she probably can't, but I know I need her, I need her, I seriously cannot function without her and her thoughts and input and ideas.

I just need to be talented, she needs to be business, that makes sense. It makes so much sense. I sent her a message a couple of days ago just being like, I just need you to know how grateful I am to you, how grateful I am for your time and like, you know, just she's such a generous soul with everything, she's such an amazing and I think that's something that is like we're all women team, that's um even my accountant, my lawyer, everyone is female that we work with and I think it's really intentional to have these fucking strong, smart, audacious women on your team. You need those people on your team. Absolutely. Amen. Question number four is how do you win the day? What are your am or pm rituals and habits that keep you feeling happy and successful and motivated. You're rubbing your face. Oh my God, I don't win any days. I don't win, I'm not winning.

Oh my God, I have no idea winning the day, winning the day. Do you know what I take and I win the day is I take my homeopathic, sleep drops at night four of them and I do a breathing exercise and I try and just get good sleep if I can sleep well because I am a slave to my ambition flex. Mommy taught me that and I am a slave to my Children, which I love, but I have no time anywhere for anything so that I need to address this is a bit of a come to jesus moment. But winning the day, I'd like to win a day. I'm wearing a watch that keeps buzzing and telling me to walk and move. That's what it's doing. I feel like winning the day to me is like lots of small moments that just bring you joy in that small moment. It's not like one specific thing, but it's like those tiny things like for me it's like getting the sleep that's definitely winning the day or like having you know just the green juice that I love, that if I had that every day, that would be amazing.

But I don't have it every day so that therefore I'm kind of missing that small joy. Do you know what is amazing that I'm truly grateful for is being in a privileged position to be with my babies and work like Yes, I'm still working now and at 7, 10 and I've been working since seven a.m. But in her waking hours when she's not napping. I get her up from her nap, I give her breakfast, I cuddle her, I play with her. Yes. I might need to answer a couple of emails while she plays something else. But that's a privilege. And that makes me feel like I'm winning something that I can have the accessibility to do that and work. Yes, absolutely. That's amazing. Question. Number five is, and I think we might have covered this, but I'm gonna ask it again, what's the worst money you've spent in business? And how much did it cost you your worst money mistake? I feel bad saying that about him.

He was so great. It was just a just too much. You know, I think sometimes we jump to like, you think that there's an answer and but you don't have like the right kind of, it's just not the right match. And so you think it's going to be the right match. But then when you get into it, you're like wrong and then you have paid too much and then, or you're on a contract and then I couldn't get out, but he's a sweetheart, love him. Just too overqualified and too much money. Question # six. Last question. I'm sure you've got lots of these. What is just a crazy story, good or bad that you've had from this journey. Crazy story. I mean, they're all like, that's the job, right? The job is fucking crazy. But like if it was like a wow moment, it would be, there's a really fancy restaurant here called fred's and I went there when we launched No, no, when we got to number one, it was still that first season and the waitress because I was still very new.

The waitress was like, I love your podcast, we all love your podcast here and I was like someone real listens because usually it's just numbers and I know that's a very humble, low key moment, but it was like a real life person telling me they love it. That was pretty cool. I feel like that thrill also just never goes away right when someone pops into your inbox or your D. M and just shares a tiny little thing of how it's impacted them or their day or their business or their life and you're like, this will never get old. Someone saying those words to you will never get old. I think probably, you know, and that is such a good point that you bring up because that is a crazy thing that happens all the time is the dems are you know pumping you can imagine. But those moments of, I grew up religious, I had a huge judgment on this on a trans issue. It changed the way I see the world change the conversations I'm having with my family members changes the way I'm raising my kids like that.

I probably take that for granted a little bit like that's pretty fucking wild and it's I probably take it, I don't take it for granted. I think I can't handle it. Sorry, it's the other way around. Like it's too much for my little heart to bear that. That I kind of just skim past those ones because it's like that's crazy. That's crazy. That is seriously crazy. That's that's impact, that's impact. I have loved this. This was so much. Thank you so much for coming on the show. I can't wait to meet you, I can't wait to meet you too.
