Lisa Messenger needs no introduction but let’s give it a go… Lisa is the vibrant, game-changing founder and CEO of Collective Hub. She launched Collective Hub as a print magazine in 2013 with no experience in an industry that people said is either dead or dying. Collective Hub has since grown into an international multimedia business and lifestyle platform with multiple verticals across print, digital, events and more recently, co-working spaces – all of which serve to ignite human potential.

Lisa has authored a number of best-selling books: Daring & Disruptive, Money & Mindfulness, Breakups & Breakthroughs, Risk & Resilience, Work from Wherever, and the list goes on. Lisa is one of the game-changers in the Australian media landscape, favouring authenticity and truth above lifestyle and positioning – resulting in an engaging and real connection between Lisa and her audience.

I had the absolute pleasure to sit down with Lisa to dive into one of my favourite books, Daring & Disruptive, how it all started and where she is going next. Her team have graciously set up a discount for our listeners. You just need to use this code: wellnesswarriors20
