Personal Development Cannot Happen Without Personal Disruption with Pauline Nguyen (120)

April 07, 2022

Don’t skip this week’s episode. Put a reminder on your calendar if you can’t listen right now. I have had a vast array of perspectives on this podcast, and today’s episode is certainly a big picture concept that pushes the norm. But I think it’s going to be an episode where if you take what speaks to you and leave that which doesn’t align with your worldview, you’ll get countless gems from this conversation with one of Australia’s most influential women entrepreneurs, Pauline Nguyen.

In fear of bulleting out the interview to highlight my favorite takeaways because it all was, I just stopped taking notes when I watched this back. But what I’ve listed below should peak your interest enough to see if this episode is for you to listen to:


  • Why personal development cannot happen unless personal disruption happens first
  • How Pauline interprets this #realtalk quote: “Before you heal someone, ask him if he’s willing to give up the things that make him sick.” -Hippocrates
  • How some people don’t commit to fully showing up so they can blame something or someone else for it not happening.
  • Why we update our technology routinely without question, but we don’t update the technology that developed the technology + how to perform your own update. #personaldevelpment #doyourwork
  • How to disrupt the mind, heart, health, and soul so we can update our own programming and stay ahead of the game.
  • Because the epic quote Pauline spoke aloud about fear might just shake you to finally stare yourself in the mirror if you’ve been avoiding it.


I’m grateful for this experience and the chance to get to share it with you. I’d love to hear what part spoke to you.

About Pauline Nguyen

Pauline Nguyen’s story is that of survival first. Escaping war-torn Vietnam as a toddler, Pauline eventually made it to Australian shores after a year in a Thai refugee camp. She went on to suffer tremendous physical and emotional abuse until she was a young woman.

 It’s this adversity that Pauline now refers to as her ‘training’ to have since become one of Australia’s most sought after speakers. She is also the co-founder of the world’s most awarded Vietnamese restaurant, Red Lantern.

 She was named as one of ‘Australia’s Top 50 Influential Female Entrepreneurs’, and one of the hand-selected ’200 Women Who Will Change the Way You See the World. As Huffington Post puts it, Pauline is, “The most grounded spiritual entrepreneur on the planet”.
