Days of Our Lives with Billy Flynn

Actor and Days of Our Lives star Billy Flynn vividly recalls taking his first drink with some friends at fourteen years old.


Even after his mom called the police on him for being drunk, he thought to himself, "this feels cool."


In his teenage years, Billy started to experience all of the consequences that come with more severe drug use - rehabs, probation, juvenile detention centers - the list goes on.


At one point, he was able to pull his life together long enough to attend college and get a decent job, but he soon found his way back to abusing substances.


During a moment of clarity, Billy realized that drugs and alcohol were holding him back from all of the things he wanted to accomplish, especially his dream of becoming an actor, so he decided to take a break from drinking and using.


Again, life got better, and he landed a role on the soap opera "Days of Our Lives," but after losing his grandmother, he turned back to his addiction.


Things got much darker this time.


Billy got kicked off Days of Our Lives, his marriage was hanging on by a thread, and he was seriously considering taking his own life.


He decided to enter treatment again, but this time it was different, he was ready to get sober.


After leaving rehab, Billy immediately got a sponsor and started working a 12 Step Program.


Today Billy is more than 2 years sober, happily married, and has rejoined the Days of Our Lives cast.

How do I survive Home schooling?

Play

Is home schooling better? Better for who? 

Better for our children, allowing them to know themselves better and make better choices, leading to more fulfilled lives. 

As the nation heads into a potential term of school from home - I thought that home schooling and school from home would be a great topic to discuss. 

As such, I am very excited to have my first guest on the Lady Leadership podcast - Billy Flynn! 

Billy is ‘as you would say’ is ‘educated’. Billy went to Geelong Grammar, she studied Industrial Engineering at Melbourne Uni and then went on to study an MBA. She has also worked at many organisations in engineering, customer service, change and transformation. She is a life long learner and is curious about the world around her and her family.

Why then would someone like Billy decide that the best way to school her young son Bucky is home schooling. Billy realised though that even with all this education that she didn’t really know who she was and what was her purpose, until a lot later in life! 

In this episode we discuss Billy’s reasons for homeschooling and the principles that she has developed over the last 5 years and what does a day look like for Billy and Bucky.  

We discuss 

  1. Self directed learning. 
  2. Being out in the world and learning.
  3. Exploring yourself and knowing yourself.
  4. Children have a right to their own childhood and a right to play. 
  5. Life is good and fun.
  6. Consumption vs Creativity. A 50 - 50 model. 


We even discuss Bucky’s thoughts on home schooling. 

The resources that Billy mentions in the podcast are:

John Taylor Gatto - 'Dumming us Down' & 'Weapons of Mass Instruction' 

Alfie Kohn - 'No Contest' & 'Unconditional Parenting' + he has many other books on Education

Russell Ackoff & Daniel Greenberg - 'Turning Learning Right Side Up'

Bruno Bettleheim - 'The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales' + there are many others

A. S. Neill - 'Summerhill; a radical approach to child rearing'

I would like to thank Billy for her time and absolutely loved this catch up.
