Featured Guest Octavia Goredema
Featured Book "How to Begin" by Michael Bungay Stanier

Episode Summary

This is still 2 Pages with MBS, the podcast where brilliant people read the best 2 pages from a favourite book, but now there’s a twist! It’s me reading 2 pages from my new book, and inviting brilliant people to reflect on what they’re hearing.

Octavia Goredema is many things; a British woman thriving in LA, a career coach, a champion for women, and a Member of the British Empire. You may be familiar with her, as she’s been on this podcast before. We met when she wrote me an email complimenting one of my books, and we’ve enjoyed a precious friendship, since then. I only hope that she has more nice things left to say about my writing.

Michael reads two pages from his upcoming book, ‘How To Begin.’ [reading begins at 3:30]

Hear us discuss:

  • What it takes to be your best self: “It’s a strikingly simple, but powerful concept. There’s no right or wrong way.” [7:31]
  • Returning to your best self. [8:51]
  • Connecting to joy: “At the end of each month, I do a lot of reflection on how I felt, what I learnt, and my final perspective.” [11:53]
