Business Wellness in Hamilton, Episode 1


Host Linda Marshall has coined the term Drive By Life Phenomenon to describe the new behaviours that have emerged in recent years as a result the impact of digital technology has on our business and personal lives.

With this show's guests, we talk about how this new phenomenon impacts business wellness and how to regain control of your fast-paced life.

Nicholas Brown, Wealth Advisor

Brown Financial Security

As a professional in a high-stress, results focussed environment, Nicholas believes that it's daily and weekly planning that helps us to take back control in our lives and reduce the chances of a Drive-By Life.

He suggests that simple strategies, like tracking our hours in a day we can see if we are spending our time effectively – particularly in our business roles.

Nicholas also believes that our fast-paced lives stop us from celebrating our accomplishments... and the perfect solution is to take an 'unplugged vacation'.


Leanne Giavedoni, Wellness Lifestyle Coach

Essential Oil Educator and B.Sc. Physiotherapy 

In her role as a Wellness Lifestyle coach, Leanne believes strongly in the importance of a daily mindfulness practice.

Strategies can vary, but taking a few minutes every day to slow down and really 'think' about the day, what you want to achieve and the potential distractions is worth every minute spent.

Leanne shares her thoughts on how to start your own practice and how to use tools like a recorded guided visualization to help to clear and focus your mind.
