Rank #1: #6: Mindful Doctor & How to Stimulate Health in Healthcare with Dr. Lisa-Marlen Rogmann

Podcast cover
Read more

Is healthcare really about health and care?

That’s a question that Dr. Lisa Marlen Rogmann and I have asked ourselves often. Does the system allow us, healthcare professionals, to perform at our best? To give the patients the care they deserve?

When it comes to the German Healthcare system, it seems not. Like Dr. Lisa beautifully put it:

Doctors must not work in conditions that make them feel sick while they try to heal others.

So, what are these conditions exactly? How are German doctors forced to work in ways that make them ineffective, unhappy, and sick?

A system that incentivizes profit-oriented decisions, a strong hierarchy, and contracts that force you to accept 24-hour shifts. Dr. Lisa tells us what this looks like on the floor of an Orthopedic Clinic.

The bottom line is, it’s time for a change. This can’t continue. And with Mindful Doctor, Dr. Lisa and her colleagues aim to do exactly this. Their goal is to change hospitals into healing places. To help doctors thrive and to stimulate the healing of patients. So that at the end of the day, both can go home happily.

Show Notes

In this podcast we discuss:

  • How Dr. Lisa and I both stopped liking our jobs
  • The circumstances German healthcare professionals have to work in
  • How Dr. Lisa had to “detox” from work
  • 24-hour shifts

  • How the German Healthcare System incentivizes profit-oriented decisions

Rank #3: #4: How to Start a Business, Entrepreneurship, and Digital Marketing with Jorick Sikkes

Podcast cover
Read more

An interest in high school turned into an experiment turned into a sustainable business.

At the age of 17 Jorick discovered he liked building websites. He started experimenting and got his first job from a local hairdresser.

At that time, social media wasn’t that prominent. So before he knew it he was calling more hairdressers to see if he could build a website for them.

I barely dared to talk to adults at the age of 17. Safe to say that cold calling a hairdresser was out of the question.

I find it inspiring how Jorick started with nothing and managed to turn this idea into a sustainable business at the age of 24. And now, already looking at the next step, to start a marketing agency with 2 partners.

When I think of Jorick, I think of someone that’s super experimental, data-driven, and always looking to grow. Both on a professional and on a personal level. Great ingredients for an amazing podcast.

Show Notes

In this podcast we discuss:

  • How Jorick started his business
  • How he got his first clients
  • How he experimented while he studied
  • What he does as a digital marketing expert
  • The different social media platforms
  • Digital Marketing of tomorrow
  • How to use LinkedIn to gather leads
  • How I can gather more leads with my target audience
  • An amazing tip for all starting entrepreneurs

Have you ever traveled with an almost empty bank account? Or with no money at all?

Flavio did both of these. Not because he wanted it, but because it happened.

  • How Flavio never really traveled and decided to go backpacking by himself
  • How he prepared for his trip

  • How he traveled before Indonesia
  • What living with an Indonesian family was like
  • What changed his entire trip on Bali

Podcast cover
Read more

What would you do when you graduate your master’s degree Cum Laude?

I guess it wouldn’t be what Merlin did; get a part-time job and prepare for a kickbox fight.

A remarkable contrarian decision that is a signature behavior of Merlin. Well-thought, philosophical, intelligent, and always on the lookout to bend life to his image.

Where I traveled around the world to create life the way I wanted it to be, he did it at home.

  • How Corona affects Merlin’s kickboxing plans
  • How he got into kickboxing
  • What he does to optimize his sports performance between training moments
  • How he manages his time throughout the day
  • How binaural beats help him relax
  • How he uses visualization (and how you can try it yourself)
  • The importance of flexibility
  • What he eats to perform at his best
  • His weakness in kickboxing
  • His biggest fear in kickboxing

Rank #6: #1: How to Sail Across the Atlantic for Free with Leander Declercq

Podcast cover
Read more

Have you ever sailed across the Atlantic? I didn’t, and I never realized that was something people do until Leander told me about it.

Now, more than a year after he first mentioned it to me, he actually did it. He sailed from the south of Portugal to Saint Martin. And that while for most of the trip he didn’t pay a single cent.

Quite impressive I’d say!

It turned out to be a journey with high highs and deep lows. From waves the size of houses and being so seasick he couldn’t move, to the tranquility without technology in between the deep blue for days on end.

Show Notes

In this podcast, we take the journey with Leander and we discover:

  • What the reason was he dreamed of crossing the Atlantic by boat
  • How he managed to arrange the trip (and how you can too)
  • The difficulties he experienced during the first part
  • How he experienced Marocco and its culture
  • How he managed to find a ride across the Atlantic for free at the Canary Islands
  • What being “disconnected” from the world did with him
  • His satisfaction with having realized this dream

And he shares a bunch of tips so you can engage in a trip like this as well!
