Episode 99 - Sex, Divorce, Platonic Friendship and all things mojo with Louise Johnson and Jojo Fraser

 We cover so much from platonic friendship love, divorce, sex and all things mental wellness and mojo. Louise Johnson was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Since 2013, she has called Vancouver, Canada home. In tandem with furthering her career in Sales & Marketing, Louise wrote her first memoir in 2019, following a transformative six-year period and a traumatic divorce. Her writing style is unabashed and her stories are anything but sugarcoated. As a writer, Louise believes in conveying her experiences using a mixture of stark reality and dark humour; and as a woman, she’s not afraid to tell the truth, especially if that truth is hard. As a resident of Vancouver, Louise Johnson lives on the unceded and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, to whom she extends her unending gratitude, for caring for this land that has cared unconditionally for her.   Connect with her here - Jojo Fraser is an award winning author, coach, podcaster and motivational speaker.  She has been a mental health researcher for the past 6 years and helps to empower, motivate and uplift the leaders she works with.  She is known for her straight talking and bold approach.  Her mission is simple – to normalise what many see as ‘the hard’ conversations and in breaking the stigma, save many lives.

Episode 89 - Getting high naturally and recovering from Mania and Hypomania with 'Scotland's Queen of Positivity' - Jojo Fraser
Mar 25 2020 28 mins  
This week,  'Scotland's Queen of Positivity', Jojo Fraser gives a raw and brutally honest account of living with, being diagnosed with and recovering from her first ever hypomanic and then manic episode.  This episode is brutally honest and has been made to help those and the families and friends of those going through it.  This episode features music by the incredible Elaine Lennon with her hit 'only love can break your heart'.  This track helped Jojo when she felt lost and alone in hospital and provided her with lots of comfort.  Jojo and Elaine spoke on the phone, whilst Jojo was in recovery. Jojo coached Elaine on the run up to her Tedx talk which you can check out here - Here is what Elaine had to say about working with Jojo - 'Jojo is so down to earth yet really energising and motivating - it’s like talking to one of your best buddies! She puts you at ease right from the start and is a total pro, listening closely to your needs and giving you exactly what you require to help you achieve your best! Her little gems of tips really helped me focus and hone in on the real message I wanted to deliver, all done in a really fun and positive way! The visualisation meditation she prepared for me was really helpful - it showed that Jojo really listened to the areas that had made me twitchy and built the visualisation around those points. It’s something I will listen to many times over the years.'

Episode 81 - Are you living your dream or ignoring that little voice? with Elaine Lennon (Singer and Songwriter)

I am so thrilled to have Elaine Lennon as my guest this week.  She is a source of huge inspiration and the intention of this episode is to help you get closer to your dreams or to encourage you if you are following your dream but you feel alone.  This will give you a huge mojo injection.  Are you living your dream or the dream of someone else? Perhaps a partner, parent or friend?  Let me ask you to get still and think about what YOU want. Elaine finally decided to follow her dream and as a result she is making a huge impact: 2019 Celtic Connections Danny Kyle Award Winner.
