Attitude and Abundance with Andrea Heuston

Published on: 13th January, 2021

We start our first season with a fascinating conversation with award-winning entrepreneur and CEO Andrea Heuston, who lets us in on a few secrets about what success means, how to nurture the attitude to be able to deal with whatever life throws at you, how we should always think in abundance, and what she learned about control after a close encounter with death.

Andrea is CEO of Artitudes Design. She also runs a podcast called Lead Like a Woman, which aims to empower women to empower others.

Note: Andrea’s interview starts at 14 minutes. Before that, Maribel and Helen have a conversation about using our imaginations to envisage better futures for ourselves, based on the book What Is to What If by Rob Hopkins. The other book mentioned is Playing Big by Tara Mohr.

About the Podcast

A solid grounding on which to practice your audacity.
AudaciousNess showcases individuals who have set themselves bold, audacious goals and have worked to achieve them. Our purpose is to inspire people to act with the courage to create a positive impact in the world.

Through interviewing 'regular people' about their audacious goals, we highlight the fact that role models are everywhere. Each and every one of us can have an impact in some way. Our goal is to enable a courageous community that honours their genius and lives their calling.

The name 'AudaciousNess' has two components: audacious, meaning 'bold', and ness, meaning 'a strip of land projecting into a body of water'. We believe having a solid grounding on which to practice your audacity is crucial, or, in the words of the great philosopher king Marcus Aurelius (Meditations, 4.49):

"Be like the promontory against which the waves continually break, but it stands firm and tames the fury of the water around it."
