adulting with ebonie emotional intelligence mindset

The One About The Misfit Priest

Mar 14, 2024

Ebonie Allard Podcast season one

Way back, ten years ago before Misfit to Maven was called Misfit to Maven it was called 'Seven Steps to Ahhh' and then '80 Days to Ahhh'

Today's guest did the very first format of Misfit to Maven, before the book came out even!

In this week's episode, I speak to Graeme Blackwell, a former marketeer, turned music writer who is now ordained in the Church of England, serving in the Mirfield Team Parish.

This is the third in a series of episodes where I interview my clients so that you get a behind-the-scenes view of what its really like to work with me.

This episode is part of our 10 years of Misfit to Maven®ď¸ celebration!! 🎉

Listen today to hear:

  • What attracted Graeme to the original version of Misfit to Maven
  • How The Value Filter changed his blog, and then his life
  • What kept him afloat through change, growth and success
  • The details of his transformation from marketing services, through heavy metal music blogging, to 'selling Jesus'
  • The worst and most uncomfortable bits of the journey to self-truth and acceptance.
  • How a lack of joy impacts men particularly, and what happens when we help them access it again. 

Plus, in this week's behind-the-scenes 'The Patron Part with Graeme Blackwell'

Graeme and I discuss the complexities of being an adult, what the Bible says about Astrology and Human Design, and the impact of creating stability, acceptance and peace in our lives.
