Juno Nominated Pop Star RALPH on the songwriting  process, overcoming  insecurities, owning her own record label, staying grounded, and so much more!
It’s hard to pin down exactly what it is about the Toronto born, JUNO award nominated artist RALPH (Raffa Weyman) that has captured the devotion of fans across the country. Whether it’s her high-fashion yet effortlessly cool aesthetic, her irresistible blend of vintage pop and lush contemporary beats, or the raw honesty that comes through her lyricism, one thing is certain - there is a rarity about an artist such as RALPH. With an emphasis on narrative songwriting and genre-bending musical style (with a background in vocal jazz and folk music), RALPH has created a special role for herself within the contemporary music scene; a sound that is catchy but cool, sexy but smart, edgy but sophisticated. She’s developed a soundscape that is uniquely her own, but what truly makes RALPH's songs special is that they are ferociously honest and relatable. This finesse sent her hit track “Gravity” up the radio charts into the Top 20, followed by a JUNO award nomination for Dance Recording of the Year. Starting with little more than talent and a vision, over the past five years RALPH has built an incredible following in the USA, Canada and Europe. She’s joined the likes of Ria Mae, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Scott Helman on three cross-Canada tours, and has drawn crowds south of the border for a North American tour with US band JOAN. Earning over 35 millions streams across platforms and seeing her music featured across television networks such as E!, HBO, Freeform, CBC, and VICE, she has earned praise from a wealth of tastemaker press such as The FADER, Billboard, Paper, Paste, NYLON, V Magazine, Mother Jones, Interview Magazine, Elle Canada, Hollywood Reporter, Teen Vogue, and MTV News. She has also seen her face featured twice on the Dundas Square Amazon and Spotify billboards, and was the guest vocal coach on two episodes of Canada’s Drag Race. The scope of RALPH’s talent reaches far beyond her sonance; her aesthetic eye has served in the consistency of her photography and the artful approach to her music videos as she continues to grow not only as a pop-icon, but a style purveyor. Whether it’s to catch the next look she’ll be serving, or the next bop she’ll be dropping, all eyes are on RALPH. Ralph’s newest EP Gradience was just released July 2021, and her single ‘Tommy’ is already being played on radios across Canada. She has a Canada headline tour booked for November 2021 and will be continuing her tour in January, visiting select cities in the USA.

JEFF RISELEY on resilience and bravery, why he founded Sales Health Alliance, the importance of empowering ourselves, caring for our mental health at work mid-pandemic, and so much more!
Jeff Riseley is the Founder of Sales Health Alliance which he created to empower salespeople and leaders to reach peak levels of sales performance and well-being through better Mental Health. S.H.A. is an alliance of salespeople, sales leaders, health experts and technology providers who are building awareness around mental health within sales. They help fellow salespeople and sales leaders feel comfortable talking about Mental Health and share best practices to navigate stressful situations in a mentally healthy way. Through survey research conducted at Sales Health Alliance, Jeff identified that at least 43% of salespeople struggle with their Mental Health and the opportunity to reach peak levels of performance and well-being through better Mental Health is massive. Data from the WHO shows every $1 invested into treatment for common Mental Health disorders (anxiety, depression, burnout, etc) there is a $4 return in improved health and productivity. Through workshops, consulting services, and technology, Sales Health Alliance empowers salespeople to start breaking down stigma, share best practices for managing mental health in the sales trenches and make it normal to talk about mental health in the workplace. Jeff reminds us that vulnerability is our biggest strength towards building genuine relationships and lasting connections with others. Creating a space where it's ok to be vulnerable within sales, at work and in life in general is important to achieving long-term success.

“An essential trait for any entrepreneur is the ability to recognize opportunity where others don’t but it’s the ability to act on that recognition that is essential for a successful entrepreneur” – Peter Neal, Owner & Founder, Neal Brothers Foods In 1988, fresh out of university and eager to make an impact, Peter and Chris Neal embarked on a journey that would change their lives and the lives of many others. It all started with an idea, curiosity, a desire to contribute and a letter from Peter to Chris suggesting they make croutons in their mom’s kitchen in Aurora, ON.  Believing in the importance of empathy and understanding that consumers’ tastes and needs were evolving as was their desire to trust the food they buy, the Neal Brothers set out to create a food company with delicious products consumers could feel good about. From the beginning, they’ve remained rooted in a commitment to delivering ‘goodness’ through their passion for tried and tested recipes and their purpose to actively help those living with food insecurity.  Fast forward 30 years, the successful Canadian-based Neal Brothers Food Brands and Neal Brothers Food Distribution companies are known as leaders in organic, specialty and natural food products. They are continuously challenging themselves and their partners to provide consumers with new and innovative products that will delight them. Most recently launching a Canadian made de-alcoholised beer with new technology that produces a far superior taste to the current competition.  Peter oversees Neal Brothers’ Brand Development, Marketing and Sales. In his role, he leads partnerships, sales, distribution and all marketing and communications activities. When away from his desk, and not mired in a pandemic, he relentlessly pursues the world looking for ‘what’s next’ in the food industry to delight Canadians.  Peter is also known for his commitment to helping innovative food and beverage companies succeed, regularly offering mentorship in entrepreneurship with empathy and is on the board of several start-up companies and not-for-profit organizations. He is a passionate advocate and advisor for Community Food Centers Canada (CFCC) and the co-founder of the Good Food Builders program, through which like-minded food companies contribute much needed resources to CFCC each year. CFCC, an organization near and dear to the Neal Brothers family, helps food insecure Canadians through access to food, food-based education, education and other community services.  For more from Marilyn Barefoot or to get in touch with her directly, please connect via: Marilyn's website: https://marilynbarefoot.com/ (https://marilynbarefoot.com/ ) LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/marilynbarefootbigideas/ (https://www.linkedin.com/in/marilynbarefootbigideas/ ) Twitter: @MarilynBarefoot Instagram: @marilynbarefoot ABOUT Marilyn Barefoot, the Host of Breaking Brave: https://breaking-brave-with-mar.captivate.fm/listen (Breaking Brave) is Hosted byhttps://marilynbarefoot.com/ ( Marilyn Barefoot), one of the foremost business coaches & creative ideators in North America - Marilyn gets hired by several of the world's biggest brands, companies, and organizations (the NHL, McDonald's, Deloitte, Coca-Cola, MTV, Viacom, The CFL, Forbes Magazine; to name just a few) to help them get unstuck and generate big, creative ideas.

First Nations Chief, Author, Recipient of the Order of Canada, and Residential School Survivor, Dr. EDMUND METATAWABIN on the real meaning of truth and reconciliation, the path to healing, attending St. Anne's Residential School, and so much more.
Dr. Edmund Metatawabin is a Chief, First Nations Elder, Cree writer, Author, educator, and activist. Edmund was awarded the Order of Canada for his advocacy on behalf of residential-school survivors. He is a survivor of St. Anne’s Residential School, in Fort Albany, Ontario where he and his fellow students experienced physical, psychological, and sexual abuse at the hands of school administrators. He documented his experiences in his 2014 book, Up Ghost River: A Chief’s Journey Through the Turbulent Waters of Native History available here: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/227773/up-ghost-river-by-edmund-metatawabin--with-alexandra-shimo/ (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/227773/up-ghost-river-by-edmund-metatawabin--with-alexandra-shimo/)  In 1992, Edmund organized a conference for other survivors of St. Anne’s Residential School so that they could share their stories. He took their accounts to the police, spurring a criminal investigation that culminated in the convictions of five former staff. Edmund has devoted himself to righting the wrongs of the past, and educating First Nations youth on traditional knowledge. Edmund was the first born of eleven siblings. His father lived on the land, a natural resource harvester. Edmund was working on his Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies at York University when he was called home to run for Chief. For eight years, he held that position concentrating on economic development and education. He has adopted the motto “For Those That Are Not Yet Born” in his research and writing to honour the First Nation heritage on Turtle Island. His 2014 memoir Up Ghost River: A Chief’s Journey Through the Turbulent Waters of Native History was a shortlisted nominee for the Governor General's Award for English-language non-fiction at the 2014 Governor General's Awards. His publications also include: Hanaway (2004) and Harvesting: Cree Hunting and Gathering Techniques (2008). In 2010, he was part of the Our Story Advisory Committee for the Canadian Aboriginal Writing Challenge, run by the Historica-Dominion Institute.  Toward the end of the episode, you’ll hear directly from Edmund’s nephew, Terry Metatawabin, Edmund’s grandson, Braiden Metatawabin, and his partner Daanis McDonald. You’ll also hear a song performed by Edmund’s son Shannin Metatawabin. You can watch his performance here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOQoy0vsA0s (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOQoy0vsA0s)  We ask that if you are listening to this episode somewhere that you  find yourself able to, please stand when the song begins for its duration.  We’d like to offer our most heartfelt, deepest thanks to Edmund Metatawabin and his family for their incredible bravery, generosity, and openness in trusting us enough to share their stories, experiences, wisdom and deeply profound insight on Breaking Brave. We understand the gravity of this trust and appreciate it beyond what words can describe. Our hope for this episode is an echo of Edmund’s hope: That you listen and share the truth with the people in your life. That you pass on what you learn to your children, your family, and your community so that all future generations can know and understand the truth and history of Canada's enduring, genocidal, and horrific treatment of our First Nations people.

Robert Rotenberg on being a criminal lawyer AND bestselling author simultaneously, the writing process, his legal practice, fate, a deep love for Toronto, and so much more!
Robert Rotenberg can’t remember a time he didn’t want to be a novelist. He grew up in a family of readers and storytellers. Robert began to write stories in elementary school and took every English and writing course he could in high school. He studied English literature at university, took a year off to write a book and found he couldn’t write more than a chapter. Then he went to law school in Toronto and graduate school in England, worked as a magazine editor in Paris for an English-speaking magazine named “Passion,” then came back to Toronto and for six years published and edited his own city magazine, “T.O. The Magazine of Toronto.” He also worked as a film executive and as a producer at CBC Radio. After all that, Robert opened his criminal law practice — crime was the only part of law that ever interested him. The first day he started working as a lawyer, he also started writing his first novel. That took 10 years. It’s still in a drawer. He worked on “Old City Hall” next. It took a decade, and in 2009 he had his first breakthrough. The book was published in nine languages and became a Canadian bestseller. Since then he's written five more novels. His latest novel, “Downfall,” which we discuss, was released in February 2021. Honestly, I couldn't put it down and would highly recommend Downfall for a fun and suspenseful read! Robert also works as a screenwriter; having co-written two Murdoch Mysteries and a TV series proposal that he sold, he’s now working on a number of TV and film projects and, of course, his next novel!
