I sit down and chat with courageous and authentic Alexi Panos as we discuss how you can truly be you in a world that wants you to be someone else.
Alexi is an inspirational example of a beautiful woman living an extraordinary life on her terms. She shares her message and a ton of insights which I know will give you the courage to be your best self every moment of the day.
Love. Its the most powerful force in the planet - it transcends everything and brings us all together.
I sit down with Preston Smiles - author, love ambassador and speaker - and get his take on how YOU can become LOVE and reclaim your personal POWER.
What transpired was incredibly inspiring…
It's not enough to have knowledge, years of experience and just do good work. To succeed in a modern world, you have to put yourself out there and attract the clients, business and deals you want. If you keep yourself in a shell, you will achieve only a tiny fraction of your potential.
I sit down with marketing and branding expert, Emma Tiebens and explore ways you can put your message and brand out there so you get the success you deserve.
We're back this week with Mukul Deva and we sit down and talk about business and how you can achieve incredible - and I mean incredible - success in business and entrepreneurship.
Mukul has done quite a lot in his time - stepping out of school early to working in the army as a counterterorrism officer to becoming a mentor to leaders in transition to building up several successful businesses and even becoming a prolific author with many best-selling books.
But his secrets for running a successful business and living a fulfilled life is nothing short of profound.
I sit down with an author, social activist and TED speaker Yassmin Abdel-Magied and explore how you can OWN your power and never let anyone limit you or make you feel small.
Yassmin wants YOU to know that you are HUGE and amazing. You have a gift to share and talents abound. And the key thing is NEVER let anyone make you doubt yourself or feel small just because you're different, born somewhere else or of a different race or gender.
Girl, you can do this and succeed on your own terms!
I sit down with motivational speaker, singer and TV host Lynn Rose and get her to share her heartfelt message: ”It's never too late to become who you might have been”.
This set the tone for the entire interview we did with her. Lynn bursts with passion and enthusiasm, and as a transformational speaker, she wanted to get through to YOU and let you know that you can leverage your pain and challenges to create your best life.
Expert series! Karen Leong is an influence expert and an author of “Win People Over” book. She starts this interview by saying "It's the quality of your conversation with a person that determines the quality of your relationship with them."
Wow! How profound. And for the entire interview, Karen revealed tip after tip on how you can build a better relationship with virtually anyone you meet - from your boss, your friend to that colleague you don't talk to.
I sit down this week with serial entrepreneur and social media influencer Suria and we chat about business secrets that can literally make or break your business.
Suria opens up and walks us through the many struggles she had early on, the lessons she learnt and how YOU can side-step struggle and get more success.
You're in for a treat.
Famed trainer and best-selling author Blair Singer believes very strongly that everyone of us was born greatly talented beings with incredible powers.
It is our conditioning or "little voice" that keeps us small.
In this week's episode, Blair reveals how we can overwrite our little voice and regain our powers to BECOME who we really ARE.
A few weeks ago Bluey was in Singapore for the International Jazz Festival, and we thought it was appropriate to release this 7-min outstanding video of him sharing on what life really is together with behind-the-scene-truth about the creative process of song writing!
We will keep this short, because it's only 7-mins ... but here's what Bluey's real message is!
This week, we sit down with prolific author Mukul Deva and talk about his amazing process for writing best-sellers that hook and engage the reader. (Sidenote: Mukul has written a book a year for 15 years straight!)
If you ever wanted to write your first book but found yourself bogged down by life, work and EXCUSES, this interview is a must watch!
You have a bright idea and it floods you with passion.
"It's time to start a business, change the world and get RICH!"
All good, right?
Well, our YanaTV guest this week - Influence Solution's Karen Leong did just that ... and quickly found out she was missing MANY pieces of the puzzles.
You don't just jump in with passion alone.
If you aspire to start your own business and grow it from zero all the way to super-hero status, you will LOVE this week's interview.
We sit down with Chris Edwards, founder of Honeycombers ... and have her walk us through her journey from starting her business at home - all the way to having half a million views on her site a month now, and having a dedicated A+ team to help her.
This is REAL WORLD entrepreneurship at its best.
Dive in and find out more ....
How exactly do you change the world and make a difference starting RIGHT NOW?
We pose this question to B1G1 founder, Masami Sato as we continue the conversation on giving back and changing the world.
And Masami replied with eloquence.
This is what she said ...
As you are getting ready to celebrate February 14th with your dear one, I continue the conversation with Blair Singer - bestselling author of "Salesdogs", Rich Dad advisor and world-famous teacher. This week we ask Blair how he would define "love".
Blair's answer was deeply personal. He distinguished the difference between "love" and "intimacy" ... and truly got into the TRUTH of the word.
We continue our conversation with famed jazz musician Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick this week, and he gets deep and personal with us as we discuss WHY we are truly here on Earth.
Bluey's answer is short and profound, and comes after he recovered from years of "poison" (in his own words)
At the end of the tunnel, he suddenly realized what it was all about … and reveals the answer here in this interview with us.
Would it be easier for entrepreneurs to do business in a purposeful way and to create a larger positive change in the community if they began FIRST with HAPPINESS?
We explore this question this week with Khatiza Van Savage from Insightful Learning Journeys. Khatiza worked in Bhutan and realized they had a very different take on business and life.
The people of Bhutan have a view of life beyond financial success. The government measures the country's overall progress with something called "Gross National Happiness Indexâ€ ... a concept that really got Khatiza intrigued.
This week, we sit down with B1G1 founder Masami Sato and discuss how she turned her idea of giving back through business into reality ... and now a WORLWIDE phenomenon, with more than 800+ business participating.
But first, is it possible to actually run a business that gives back? We start by asking Masami that question.
Her answer will surprise you ... and her story of how she started through a BRIGHT idea one day will inspire you to no bounds.
Can music really heal the soul and give you purpose?
For famed jazz musician and producer Bluey Maunick, the answer is a resounding YES!
In this episode of YanaTV, Bluey sits down and reveals a never-seen-before vulnerable side ... sharing with us how music helped him through some of the darkest chapters in his life. Watch and be inspired![Sidenote: We also want to specially thank Bluey for crafting the soundtrack for YanaTV Season 2! Watch and listen to it. It’s something truly special and we hope you love it!]

Speaking about that, I sit down this week with Blair Singer, best-selling author ... world-famous trainer ... Rich Dad advisor AND my mentor - and I ask him what true, authentic success means.

Share Your Story And Write That Book Inside You - A YanaTV Interview With Deepika Shetty
In this episode, I sit down with popular author and journalist Deepika Shetty and we talk about how ordinary people can find their voice and share their story.
See, I've travelled the world and met plenty of interesting, amazing people with stories to share. I've sat listening to them tell of struggle, mistakes and wins - leaving me entranced and spellbound.
At the end, I almost always suggest they write a book and pen their story down. Most immediately shrink and insist they can't do it - because no one will read it or buy it.
Deepika Shetty used to be in that category. But she conquered her voice of doubt to pen her story down into a best-selling book.
She shares her journey from idea to conception in this illuminating interview.

Most budding entrepreneurs, Callum finds, have an idealized view of what it means to start and run a successful business.
