Poh Ling Yeow | Becoming a National Treasure


When you hear the name Poh, you know who I am talking about, there is only one – MasterChef Australia OG and National Treasure – Poh is the most lovable TV presenter, cook, writer and artist. But what about Poh the Loner or Poh the Church Rebel who found herself in Canada after “popping her cherry” in Utah? Join us as we deep dive into Poh’s incredibly rich, complex and unique perspective on life, relationships and the human condition – from growing up an Asian migrant in a South Australia, joining and then leaving the Mormon church and later in her twenties divorcing her creative soul mate and husband, Matt, who she still calls her best friend today. Poh does life her way, and by following her gut as well a few supportive nudges from the people close to her, Poh has achieved more than most dare to even dream and continually evolves. Tune into hear about a different side of Poh that you may not have heard before, one that proves no matter what the situation, following your heart and breaking convention will lead to a fulfilled life lived on your own terms. Key Takeaways: Accepting that it is OK to break convention and family expectations The importance of friendship and trusting those around you The power and beauty of nature and the human condition to inspire creativity Stop doing things that are no longer serving you, that make you are unhappy, to allow for more positive experiences and opportunities to enter your life Give and create joy Harnessing anxiety and uncertainty as a positive driver to push you into creating great things Links Poh on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pohlingyeow/ You can visit Poh at JamFace at the Adelaide Farmers Market: https://adelaidefarmersmarket.com.au/stallholder/jamface-by-poh/ Dani Venn on Instagram: www.instagram.com/danivenn Dani Venn website: www.danivenn.com/fallingforyou Books mentioned Braiding Sweet Grass by Robin Wall Kimmerer: https://www.amazon.com.au/Braiding-Sweetgrass-Indigenous-Scientific-Knowledge/dp/014199195X/ref=asc_df_014199195X/?tag=googleshopdsk-22&linkCode=df0&hvadid=384961144953&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=6401315219453352406&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9071238&hvtargid=pla-905190321353&psc=1 Mating in Captivity by Esther Perel: https://www.amazon.com.au/Mating-Captivity-Esther-Perel/dp/0060753641 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
