Introducing Sam Bearfoot
Sam Bearfoot is our guest today joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots business podcast.
When we started Join Up Dots many, many episodes ago, it was my aim to show you all, how different people achieve different things in their lives.
Some people quit their nine to five and take a dramatic leap of faith, whilst following their dreams.
Other people, like myself, take a more hesitant “Slide of faith” and continue working on the side hustle until the time when it is right to go and do their own thing.
Well todays guest is like that, and is creating an online identity and profile, alongside a brick and mortar business in the holistic world of Kinesiology, which is a holistic approach of simultaneously treating all the aspects of a person, emotional, nutritional, structural and energetic needs, whilst still working for the man.
After spending a number of years suffering from a vast array of illness and discomfort, she discovered this form of treatment and founded the company Body Sync in 2010, to take her understanding and training out into the world to help others.
How The Dots Joined Up For Sam
And it’s that delight to share and help others which has positioned herself as the Digestion Detective which is a franchised online show, found in ITunes and available on UK Health Radio each week, where she talks and discusses health and health issues.
Throw into the mix regularly contributions to various publications which have included Health & Fitness magazine, Daily Mirror, Prima and Cosmopolitan to name just a few, you get the picture that this lady is a hustler, who works hard everyday to achieve her aim.
But what is that aim? Where does she see her life going? And what does she love doing most her own thing, or working for someone else?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, the one and only Sam Bearfoot.
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Sam Bearfoot such as:
How she packs so much into her life and firmly believes that there will be plenty of time to sleep when she’s dead, and wants to hustle everyday to make the most of the time she has.
Why she feels that overcoming fear is one of the main parts, if not the biggest part of becoming truly entrepreneurial.
How when she started her first businesses she pushed herself so hard to be a success, she actually earned a valuable lesson by ending up in hospital.
How she remembers that a career officer at school, felt that she didn’t have it in her to grasp her dream, so convinced her parents to help her become more realistic.
How she did a presentation and realised that she was the only one saying a certain word, and that was the key to who she is………………….a total real and authentic lady…who is great!

Transcription Of Sam Bearfoot Interview
When we’re young, we have an amazing positive outlook about how great life is going to be. But somewhere along the line we forget to dream and end up settling. Join Up Dots features amazing people who refuse to give up and chose to go after their dreams. This is your blueprint for greatness. So here’s your host live from the back of his garden in the UK, David Ralph.
David Ralph [0:26]
Yes, hello there everybody. Welcome a world to Join Up Dots Episode 259. And this is another English lady can’t believe it. I couldn’t get an English Lady for love nor money to come on the show. And now that that hurts have them all over the place. They’re like grazing, grazing and people don’t know what I’m talking about. But there’s a lot of them coming to the show, which is really nice because we can get a different flavour on this one. And the good thing about this lady as well as she’s become a friend of mine, this is the first time that we’ve actually spoken but this is the First time that we’ve actually, you know, had a proper conversation that’s not on Facebook and all that kind of virtual tip, and texting and all that kind of business. So it’s great to have you on the show. And really what I wanted to on the show was when we started Join Up Dots many, many episodes ago, it was my aim to show you all how different people achieve different things in their lives. Some people quit their nine to five and take a dramatic leap of faith whilst following their dreams. Other people like myself, take a more hesitant slide of faith and continue working on the side hustle until the time when it’s right to go and do their own thing. Well, today’s guest is like that and he’s creating an online identity and profile alongside a brick and mortar business and the holistic world of Kinesiology. Maybe I said that wrong I don’t know, which is a holistic approach of simultaneously treating all the aspects of a person’s emotional, nutritional, structural and energetic needs while still working for a man. After spending a number of years suffering from a vast array of illness and discomfort she discovered this form of treatment founded the company body sink in 2010. And she wanted to take her understanding and training out into the world to help others and that’s what she’s done. And it’s that delight to share and help others which has positioned herself as the digestion detective which is a franchise online show found in iTunes and available in UK health radio each week, where she talks and discusses health and health issues. Now throw into the mix regular contributions to various publications, which have included Health and Fitness magazine Daily Mirror, premier cosmopolitan to name just a few. You get the picture that this lady is a hustler who works hard every day to achieve her aim. But what is that? Where does she see her life going? And what does she love doing most her own thing or working for someone else? Well, let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots. My mate, I will person the one and only Sam Bearfoot, how are you Sam?
Sam Bearfoot [2:56]
I’m good. Dave, how are you?
David Ralph [2:58]
I’m extremely well. It isn’t It will be weird, isn’t it that we’ve kind of connected virtually over a period of time. And we’re kind of like little virtual friends where we can just say, How are you saying?
Sam Bearfoot [3:09]
I’ve got tonnes of actual friends?
David Ralph [3:11]
Oh, I’m not a special woman, Sam,
Sam Bearfoot [3:13]
but you are the special one, especially fellow podcast. I know.
David Ralph [3:19]
Is that way we’re going you’re going that way, weren’t you, Sam?
Sam Bearfoot [3:22]
I wasn’t know. You’re my special podcasting friend. You know, I can talk to you about all those audio tricks and funny business that goes on that nobody else really understands.
David Ralph [3:31]
Did you like the fact that you have got these identities and you got very different identities? I mean, you because you are a podcast, you’ve got your show. You’ve got your medicine stuff. And did I say that? Why is it kinesiology or theology?
Sam Bearfoot [3:44]
It’s kinesiology. So I was close. It was close. Yeah, you didn’t know what you said it as every other person apart from a kinesiologist would say it so you do perfectly well.
David Ralph [3:55]
So you’ve got that and you’re still working for the man as well. You’ve you’ve still got a A job so you’re out there. How do you do all that kind of stuff? Because so many people say to me, I haven’t got time. I can’t David, I’m halfway through the box setup 24 I can’t do something else. How do you manage to juggle all that?
Sam Bearfoot [4:16]
Well, and I’ve worked in the corporate world for a really long time and I’m what I do is full on, it’s hectic. I have to be very organised. And as you can imagine, I’ve been doing that for like 15 years. So, you know, for me juggling in a little bit of extra stuff isn’t really all that difficult. I don’t get to watch much TV. I couldn’t tell you what’s on EastEnders at the moment in fact, I haven’t watched EastEnders for like the last two years. So as you say, the whole box set thing, I don’t get that because I don’t get to, you know, watch too much. And for me, you sleep when you’re dead. And that’s just how it is. And Bon Jovi said that
David Ralph [5:00]
He’s gonna be
Sam Bearfoot [5:01]
on Jamie. Yeah, okay, I was thinking m&m but not Maybe I was wrong, so I must be wrong. No,
David Ralph [5:05]
didn’t they go Six Feet Under baby? I don’t need a bed. can I live without my lab sleep when I’m
Sam Bearfoot [5:12]
dead? Oh, there you go. Okay Yeah, yeah, okay. Maybe Maybe I’m in a mood to offer Bon Jovi here Nice.
David Ralph [5:18]
I’m sure that was Bon Jovi, but
Unknown Speaker [5:20]
he’s got the lies. Yeah, it’s
David Ralph [5:21]
a good point, isn’t it sleeping when you’re dead, because I, I’ve gone into that vibe now I’m actually in the position of trying to reduce my sleep patterns so that I can get more done in a day because I’ve got so much on my plate that I can’t quite juggle everything if I’m doing the show. I’m not seeing the family if I’m not seeing the family. I’m not doing the show. And so there’s all these kind of things and I look to them for the only way that I’m going to get this all done is by reducing my sleep and actually going to bed later and getting up earlier and I’m in that process at the moment. I’m finding it very difficult to do that. But do you think that is a key thing? When you start realising what your path is when you will actually go, No, I need to do this. I want to do this. How am I going to make it happen?
Sam Bearfoot [6:09]
Yeah, I think you know what you’re really you know, you were spot on when you say, people say to me People ask me all the time, Sam, how on earth do you do what you do with the quantity of what you do? And I say to them, Well, you could do it, and you get that look, you know, I’ve read No, that’s not quite right. And I said, You know what, actually, without sounding patronising or disrespectful, if you sat down and looked at your life, I guarantee that you’d find 10 hours somewhere if it’s not in front of the TV, it’s playing on Facebook, or it’s on your phone or paying bubble which or Candy Crush or Janata me. If you actually sat down and looked at your time properly, you would find 10 hours somewhere and you can do an awful lot with 10 hours.
David Ralph [6:53]
I have no idea what bubble which and Candy Crush is what
Sam Bearfoot [7:00]
At my nephew sends me because I have to. You can ask for life so I have them on my phone but only because he asked me for life when he dies.
David Ralph [7:09]
Come on, Sam. I know when you’re sitting on the toilet and you got five minutes.
Sam Bearfoot [7:14]
No, no, I don’t need to spend that long in the toilet. I’m the suggested detective. This
David Ralph [7:20]
flows through you. Oh yeah. Yeah, no trouble with it. You’re even productive on the toilet. Exactly. That’s the way to do it. So Exactly. Did you think then when you say that to people do you think deep down in their heart of hearts they want to be like you because I feel when I say that to people. And I say the same thing. Yeah. What did you do at the weekend? When I went down the pub and I watched a football and I did all that and I said well I worked and yeah, do you think ultimately they wish that they were like you but they haven’t found the thing that makes them want to be like you and that is that is where it all hangs.
Sam Bearfoot [7:57]
I’d you know what I think Again, I don’t know if it’s I don’t mean to sound big headed or any I’m not like that. And anybody that knows me knows I’m not. But I think, you know, I talked to people and I people do say to me, I really wish I had your life I really, you know, I really wish I knew that people that you know, and you know, all that kind of thing, but I know that they just don’t have it in them to do it. I think you’ve got to be of a certain person or a certain mindset to do what we do. And I don’t think there’s an awful lot of people out there that can do it.
David Ralph [8:33]
Can you change your mindset, by the way, when you find Yeah, thing that comes along and smacks you in the face? Like it did me and it sounds like it did you and we’re gonna talk about that moment when you decided you wanted to do your body sing. Can you bang go boom, I’m a different person.
Sam Bearfoot [8:50]
Yeah, I think so. Because I think one of my big things in everything that I do is that we are so well moulded and structured by Society of today that we’re almost confined within our own thought thoughts. So don’t put not put me taking my own thoughts. And I just think that this was capable of so much more. And if you can just step outside your own mind, even just for a moment, actually looking at your life, you’d probably be, well, can I change? What can I do? But I think we’re just a lot of us just can’t be asked. And that’s, you know, just me being really, really honest. And but I think, yeah, if you come up with an idea, and I’ve met lots of really wonderful people that do this, they have an idea but they just have no idea where to start. And I think that that’s kind of how bodysuit came about is because I know so many people that I know fantastic therapists, business men, women, but they have no idea about business.
David Ralph [9:55]
So when we came up with that idea, obviously all new ideas scary when you have an idea and you think to yourself, right, this is what I want to do, oh my God, I’ve got to invest time I got to invest money, it could ultimately fail, blah, blah, blah. What made this idea worth going for?
Sam Bearfoot [10:15]
Well, for me, as as with most therapists, I think they’ve always got some sort of story behind why they do what they do. And I’m the same. I suffered greatly for many illnesses, as you’ve said, For You know, when I was much younger, and I managed to cure myself with what, you know, with Kinesiology and, and I’m a massive sceptic, I’m a huge sceptic. And, you know, I wanted to know, I wanted to understand why you know why I’m in that therapy room and I’ve got my leg in the air doing some weird thing and, you know, and I’m like, why does that mean that why is that helping me and why have I got to take these tablets that really smell nasty, but actually they make me feel better and you I’m inquisitive, I’ve always been inquisitive little so and I had to learn. And as I started learning, it became really obvious that the others in my group in my, you know, my school, they were going to be fantastic therapists, but I knew that they’d never get there because they wouldn’t know how to market and business, you know, business wise themselves.
David Ralph [11:23]
And you remember thinking that actually, you looked around. You haven’t got it yet?
Sam Bearfoot [11:28]
Yeah, I started body sick halfway through my school. I wasn’t even I wasn’t even finished. I’ve done so many. You know, so many courses that I could get my hands on human bodies without hurting them, you know, from a legal perspective, and you know, from a qualified perspective, but I was on that last big phase of learning. And I remember looking around the room thinking, these people are brilliant, but they’re never going to go anywhere because I can just I just know the questions that are asking, and, you know, to me and to the tutors, they just We’re going to be able to do it much bigger than maybe friends or family. And to some of them, that’s absolutely fine. And that’s all they wanted. But some of them were really sort of keen to have a really big business. But, you know, for example, I was out doing, you know, these little events that I village homes, schools and things like that. And I was out doing that, because I wanted to talk to people, I wanted people to know who I was, what I was staring. And I knew that that kind of stuff was going to cost me money. But you know what, it was worth it because you saw an experience I wanted, you know, I wanted to get knee deep in it. And I would go back every you know, every month to the school and report back what I’ve been doing. And, you know, people followed me on Twitter and Facebook and things and they be like, Sam, you’re always out and about doing stuff. How do you do it? And I would just say, well, just find him and book yourself on. And I remember one of the people there. And he said to me, Well, do you make any money? And I was like, Well, no, it’s not you know, it’s not That you said, Well, I wouldn’t even do it if I’m making any money. And I just thought your mindset is so wrong. How do you think you’re going to get anywhere? If you if you’re in that zone, you know, you’ve got to start somewhere. And most, you know, unfortunately, most businesses, you start in the negative Hmm. And I just don’t get it.
David Ralph [13:21]
That the power of three I was having a conversation with a chap last night. And when you start, free is the key word, isn’t it? If you will do stuff for somebody for free when you gain the experience and over time, you’re honing your craft until the point when you can actually say, this is my value. This is my market proposition. This is Sam Beth and away I go. But I know that when you started your show and you started well, you when you start anything, it’s all about you convincing other people that you’re worthwhile. And the best way of doing that is by actually showing a track record and if you can do that for free, And you can volunteer and you can do stuff on the weekends or whatever you want to do. That says something, doesn’t it and it says, This lady is willing to go out there and hustle to get it going. And even if you haven’t got to the point of that track record, people will more often than not look at that and go, yeah, okay, I can see that she’s trying. I’m gonna give her a shot.
Sam Bearfoot [14:21]
Yeah, it’s Yeah, exactly. Absolutely. And like you say, it’s, you got to go out there and get it because nothing in life is worth anything you’re going to get for free.
David Ralph [14:32]
Well, when you when you started that I’m body sing, because I still don’t really understand what it’s all about. Is it that Yeah, somebody comes along and says, Look, I’ve got this elbow that really aches all the time. And you’d go to the doctors normally and I’d give you something to sort of mask the pain as such. But you look deeper and you try to work out what’s actually causing that and sometimes it’s nothing to do with the elbow. It might be something else which is causing it is that kind of it.
Sam Bearfoot [14:59]
That is Yeah, well done. You did your research. Yes, exactly. Unfortunately, most of the people that end up coming to see me, or people that have tried the normal route, and they’ve been to the doctor, and the doctor sort of said, well, there’s nothing wrong with you, or, you know, I can’t find anything or just take this prescription. But people now are becoming much wiser. And they want a different answer. They want to know why they don’t want a pill. They don’t want to cover it up. They don’t want the band aid. They want to know why it hurts in the first place. And that’s why many people are turning to different forms of medicine, which is, you know, which is what I do, which is why I cover
David Ralph [15:42]
it. It’s a truth in life, though, isn’t it that people are becoming more wise generally that there’s too many opportunities and the ability of research and the fact that we can just press a button on the internet and find some answers. I haven’t been down to a doctors for years, because I remember going to the doctors Always coming out with that feeling of, I don’t think that they really listened to me. It was almost like get me in, get me out. And I remember actually comes back to me now I went to this doctor’s once and I had this virus or something. And he was with me for about a week and they really knocked me for six. And I was going to work, coming home thinking God, I felt like death. And so after about five days, I went down there, and I sat in a chair next to him. And I went, Oh, Doctor, I feel so ill. My head is splitting. My heart is racing, I got a sore throat, I’m sweating, I feel dreadful. And he said, What do you want me to do for you? To which I then say, Well, I want you to make me better. And I kind of lost my faith in it there. So it doesn’t surprise me. But more and more people are turning to your route. And have you seen that in in your business? Is are the profits going up? Is it becoming more and more successful? Is it getting closer to the time when it will become your full time thing?
Sam Bearfoot [16:56]
Oh, yeah, absolutely. And the It’s difficult. It’s hard actually because I put policing together as me as a therapist hands on in a clinic, you know, seeing people, you know, coming to see me, which is great. I love it genuinely, I really do love what I do. And it is busy, but I knew that I wasn’t reaching enough people. I’ve got a big mouth, as you can probably tell, and I’m not afraid to use it. And I thought what can I do to touch more people to get people to hear to make better choices to get them well informed? And that’s, you know, gave birth to the digestion detective. So there’s kind of two sides to me, you’ve got body st, which is me as a therapist as a kinesiologist. I’m in Kensington in London, you can come and see me there. And then you’ve got me as the digestion detective and that’s my online self. So that’s me with my show. That’s me with online consultation. So me just talking to you guys. Through your health wounds, as I call them, and I can help you online too. So there is two different sides to me and they they do fit really well together. It just depends on where you are in the world I suppose because I you know, my my show is global. And I get people from all over the world talking to me. So if you’re in Australia, I obviously you can’t come to London to come and see me so the only way to do it is we’ll talk online
David Ralph [18:25]
is fascinating bow but when you started your business with people that don’t know, Kensington, it’s pretty posh area, and the rent bear is probably as high as anywhere. Yeah, I would imagine. So when you started your first business, you didn’t go sport small you’ve you’ve gone to the hub of where people will expect to pay a premium price. Yeah, did that not add to the the fair the scariness of actually setting it up?
Sam Bearfoot [18:54]
Well, Kensington is not my first clinic and you’ll be but again, I I still didn’t do it small, you know, I was really keen, you know, you know if I can, if you can think of these, you know, these shops that you go into, and they smell a bit hippie fried and there’s lots of just sticks waving around and these these funny, you know, dream catcher things in the corner and there’s lots of gemstones. Am I giving you the right kind of picture? There’s lots of funky colours. That’s exactly what I wanted to stay away from. Because there is a persona, there certainly was all those years ago about alternative therapy be just for the hippies amongst us. And I am far from a hippie. And I really didn’t want to go down that route. So for me, I thought, right, where can I find clients that are going to be regularly hurting themselves? Or, you know, not very well? And I said, Well, you know what, I live in a gym. You know, I work out. I’m there all the time. I know from the personal trainers, that people get sick, they pull muscles, you know, they do all that kind of stuff. And I thought, Well, you know what, I’m going to start off in a gym. But again, I just Go for one of these standard little gems. I went to David Lloyd,
David Ralph [20:03]
and which is the people across the world you probably don’t know David Lloyd. It’s, it’s expensive, isn’t it?
Sam Bearfoot [20:09]
Yeah, it’s pretty big. And it’s one of the more prestigious ones in the UK. And, and within the space of about six months. I have three different locations around Ken and Dave Lloyd. So I have three different clinics. So I you know, I go How do I go home and it’s very rare that I go home. So yeah, I started there. And the story is that I worked really, really hard with that really hot and I work that hard that I made myself really ill and put myself hospital.
David Ralph [20:42]
Tell us about why did you push yourself to that level? Because that is well, but that’s just madness. You’re in to help people and you’re actually going against what you’re trying to achieve?
Sam Bearfoot [20:53]
Yeah, exactly. I was still doing a completely full time job. So nine to 530. And then it evenings during the week and weekend always fitting in with three clinics, which were going really well. And I just I just push myself too hard. And I, you know, I hold my hands up to it and I learned from it and it keeps me real. It keeps me really down to work with the people that I work with. But it really really did put me on my backside and yeah, I was in hospital for a couple of days I had a massive panic attack. So huge anxiety my blood pressure was through the roof. And I really was an unwell lady. And as a result of they gave me permanent vertigo, which I still have to this day. Yeah, so I was taught a lesson by my body and you know what, I’ve learned the lesson.
David Ralph [21:46]
And unfortunately, I lost I lost all three kings because I had to step away for a year. But But when you look back on that was bad. I know. Looking at it, you think well, but that is dreadful. You put so much effort into it. But was it Not just a wake up call. Was it the right thing to do at that time? Was it the fact that you couldn’t then reassess? you realised what worked, what didn’t work? What didn’t work for you personally and physically. And so the next time you went into it, it was more structured and more organised. And it was a proper business more than a collection of dreams.
Sam Bearfoot [22:22]
Yeah, I started obviously, I took a long time out. And obviously, it took me a long time to get well, and I had lots of therapy for myself, and, you know, just really took stock, you know, and figured out what exactly I wanted. And one of the things as as many trades do, they exchange time for money. And I knew that I would get to a point where there wasn’t enough time in the day. So I had to think smarter and I had to think, how can I talk, you know, how can I get my word out to as many people as possible and that’s how come that I just detaches came about.
David Ralph [23:01]
This is a blueprint really for all the listeners out there that I’ve got that vibe, that entrepreneurial vibe to do something, you found something that you was aware that you could do. You bent decided you could do it better than the people around you, which is a big belief structure. Once you’ve got that you’re halfway there really because you know that you can achieve, then you went for it absolutely full time. But when it went wrong, you reassessed but you’re looking for the scalable nature, once you realise that the work overcome you to become the most fully functioning entrepreneur. It is about scale isn’t it is about finding a way of doing that one thing, but setting it 100,000 times and doing another thing I’ve been sending 100,000 times, which is why this sort of podcast that we’re in is amazing. We had this one conversation and people can listen to this for well for how long it’s it will stay there until We’re old people, Sam.
Unknown Speaker [24:01]
Yeah, old and grey.
David Ralph [24:03]
Yeah, I’m already really going great. Did you don’t go handsome? No one’s listening. Do you do
Unknown Speaker [24:09]
I did. I did my best friend’s wedding though.
Unknown Speaker [24:14]
Why don’t you
David Ralph [24:15]
just go authentic? Totally, totally.
Sam Bearfoot [24:19]
And this is no 10 of live and you got four grey hairs. I’ve got four. I’ve had them.
Yeah, they’d like, yeah, they just say it just scattered. And I’ve had them since my early 20s. And normally I would just pluck them out but I did you know, it’s my best friend’s wedding literally the weekend just gone and I thought yeah, I’m gonna stick a collar on his Christmas, you know, jazz it up a little bit. And I did. Yeah.
David Ralph [24:45]
I did anyone notice?
Unknown Speaker [24:47]
No, not so.
David Ralph [24:49]
And did that annoy you?
Sam Bearfoot [24:50]
No, not really. It’s fine.
David Ralph [24:53]
Because I used to work with this boss and he was the owner of the company. I can’t say his name in case he listens. Yeah, he Sue’s me. But I he was my boss, and he had grey hair. And he was kind of you know that George Clooney kind of nice grey hair. It was just okay. And then suddenly one day he came in it was brown. And it was just so dramatic and you fall. What are you doing? Just let yourself naturally go. It’s like a bold person. You never notice a bald person. But somebody’s wearing a wig. Well, you notice.
Sam Bearfoot [25:26]
Yeah, yeah, no, I just I didn’t really know dramatically change too much Carl. I just kind of put a bit of the sheen on it because amongst all this stuff we’re talking about I’m actually qualified hairdresser as well. So um, yeah, I can do crazy stuff with my hair and strip it back out again. And you know,
David Ralph [25:42]
so so what you’re really saying is your talent is interaction with people, isn’t it? You seem to be a people person. You could you could make a wonderful barmaid as well. I imagine you just got that thing about
Unknown Speaker [25:55]
I’ve been by my two. Yeah,
David Ralph [25:56]
yeah, wouldn’t surprise me.
Sam Bearfoot [26:00]
Yeah, I’m just chatting and the whole podcasting thing, you know, I didn’t I firstly, I didn’t know what podcasting was. And when the person that taught me how to podcast approached me and said, Sam, you’d be unbelievably good at this. I sort of its own as if I’m American. Well, you know, why would I want to podcast and it took her a little while to get me on board. And eventually we, you know, we did we get we started working together. And as soon as I got my teeth into it, I thought, wow, you know, I can potentially talk to the globe. And I know for me, that was just huge. It was massive. And don’t get me wrong, believe it or not behind this exterior. I’m actually quite shy. And you know, the thought of listening to your own voice and all that really kind of freaked me out. And you know, I was it’s nervous, it’s it’s nerve racking and I was really concerned about what people would think about me and you know, all those kind of insecurities that you just have But this I mean, I’ve got this whole develin angel thing going on. So the little tip was gave me I don’t do this people are going to really dislike it and you’re just gonna be talking rubbish all the time. And then the angel on my show was like, Sam, you know what you’re doing? Just do it. And yeah, the angel one and I did it and I love it. I absolutely love it
David Ralph [27:18]
is fascinating. When when you do this, I press record and I really do not know but first word that’s going to come out of my mouth. No, I just skipped anything. Yeah. And sometimes I listen to myself and I think what the hell are you talking about? Yeah, it’s just like, stop coming out. I’ve been other times you think yourself. Wow, that was good. Where did that come from? And that’s pushing you out self out there. Is that one of the things but is that does it make you more rounded as a businessman being able to cope with that fear of doing something that’s uncomfortable? But still doing anything yet?
Sam Bearfoot [27:55]
You know what? Yeah, no, actually, I think it really is because It’s enabled me to do something huge recently, and, you know, my fear of talking behind a mic in my PJs in my spare room at home. And I’ve overcome that. And you know, I’ll talk to anybody now and I really, I really don’t care who you are to me. You’re all just people, everybody’s just to pass. It doesn’t matter how big you are, how much money you’ve got, what your business is, like, I don’t care if I want to talk to you out all my efforts talk to you. So for me, you know, emailing someone that’s a big business, no problem tweeting someone that’s got thousands and thousands of followers. I’ll do it. I don’t care. But get me on stage. Now that is a completely different kettle of fish. But I was asked to be the voice of IBS recently, and I’m a former IBS sufferer. So for me, digestion is huge. You know, I’m the guy I’m the DD. You know, that’s what I do. And it was such an honour to be asked to get up on stage and talk in front of the most senior people in digestive health. You know, sorry. Scientists, gastroenterologist, general practitioners, all kinds of stuff and and they wanted me and I was really honoured and I very shaky said, Yeah, okay, I’ll do that. But in the back of my mind, I was terrified. But I did it and they loved it. And I don’t think I could have done that, without all this prior. You know, fear jumping, getting over those hurdles, you know, so it’s really kind of helped me and push me into a direction that I just didn’t think that I’d be able to go to.
David Ralph [29:32]
Well, let’s play some words that really emphasise the point that we’re talking about at the moment. This is Jim Carrey.
Jim Carrey [29:38]
My father could have been a great comedian, but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him. And so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant. And when I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job. And our family had to do whatever we could you survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you can fail What you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love?
David Ralph [30:05]
And that’s what you did, isn’t it? Well, when you got out, man, you were the voice of IBS when he was telling us about that he went, and they want me, why do they want me, but you still got out there and you did it. And it was wonderful. And that is one of the things that we all have to overcome. I was talking about this in a show the other day, I was listening to an interview with Paul McCartney. And he was saying, more often than not, he thinks to himself, what why do people want me you know, and he says, I should really be thinking, I’m fantastic. Because I was in the Beatles. I’ve got all these awards, people coming to my shows, but still, the human aspect of me thinks they’re gonna catch me out here. I’m not not as good as I make out, you know, and it seems to be a human trait. And it doesn’t matter how far up the ladder you go to Barack Obama’s and stuff. I’ve got that 14 their head. So how did you overcome that because I think this is a real key point to this. And I think there’s a real key point to taking action. You’re going, but you want me Why? What made you say yes?
Sam Bearfoot [31:09]
And what might be so I was very close to say no, you have to it has to be said, and but what made me say yes is I’m so driven to be able to want to help others that suffered in the same way that I did. You know, it’s it’s a massive driving force behind what I do the reasons why I do it, and how, you know, how I do what I do. And I felt that if I had said no, with the influence that I currently have, and I’d be doing such an injustice to those that aren’t gifted with such a big mouth.
David Ralph [31:46]
So that’s why I said so you’re the kind of spokes woman for the silent majority.
Sam Bearfoot [31:52]
Yeah, because it is, you know, you know, in the UK, I mean, the state’s its massive in the UK bowel issues. You know, it’s update. It’s like top five. And that’s only the ones that the GPS know about. There are so many almost double, I’d say that the GPS don’t know about because people, there’s such a taboo about poo. And people just don’t talk about it. And you know what? I’ve been talking about it for years. So it really has, it doesn’t embarrass me, it doesn’t bother me. And I’m happy to stand up in a spotlight. I think there was lots of spotlights, and, you know, chat about going to the number two. And, and I just, you know, I just have to Yeah, I’m the voice and if I can support and help in that way. And then that’s, that’s what I’ll do.
David Ralph [32:43]
So So is this kind of drilling down into your true mission, it seems that all entrepreneurs, they start on something, and then once they it’s finding its feet by start to realise, but there is a spin off, and it’s the spin off at summer. excellence. We’re more than what they started. But they’ve got to start looking to get it going. And I’m in it now, where I’m doing a show, and I’m getting these sort of opportunities come to me. And I’m going, Well, actually, I really fancy you bad. But no, I want to still take the show to where it needs to go before I do that, but I can see the spin off already. So could you see that you are the voice voice of basically,
Sam Bearfoot [33:26]
the voice of pay? And you know what, I’m very happy with that. Yeah, it kind of has, and I didn’t think that I’d want to get so I was very scared of the media when you know, when I first came out of school, and, you know, therapy school, because we’re taught you know, science doesn’t like us and the government don’t like us. And there’s a lot of people out there that don’t like us were Hocus Pocus. You know, it’s a bit weird and a lot of people will say there’s no more back into it, even though there’s a tonne of evidence based research behind it. And so you kind of come out really fearful. And I’ve you know, when I was at David Lloyd I had a big run in with the Advertising Standards Agency. It turned out that I did nothing wrong but it terrified me. And you know, I just didn’t think that I’d want to be in that spotlight. You know, for people to look at me and you kind of want to hide behind whatever you can hide behind so that people don’t find you that by doing that you can’t help people either. So I had to overcome that hole you know what if they’re gonna find me they’re going to find me and great if they do because I’m not doing anything wrong. But But with this, this this spirit
David Ralph [34:35]
come from because he’s all right saying but, but I have met hundreds and hundreds of people that get them on a one to one in a pub, whatever. And they come out with these plans, and they come out with these passionate speeches of what they’re going to achieve, but they don’t at all. What’s making you different from feeling all these things but still doing it?
Sam Bearfoot [35:00]
And people ask me that sort of thing all the time. And I’m just, I’m really driven and I’m stubborn. David, I’m so stubborn if I don’t do something that I tell myself I’m going to do, I’m beat myself up about it. So, you know, I kind of kicked myself every time I have an idea because if I have an idea, it means I’ve got to do it.
David Ralph [35:22]
Even if it’s the wrong idea, because we have ideas all the time.
Sam Bearfoot [35:26]
Yeah. Because you know what you learned from everything? I do anyway.
Unknown Speaker [35:31]
No experience is wasted.
Sam Bearfoot [35:33]
Absolutely. You only get one chance at life. So you should take everything on board regardless of whether it’s right or wrong. Because if it’s wrong, then learn for it from it and and then actually, it’s not really wrong as it’s an experience.
David Ralph [35:47]
So if we took you right back in time to the young Sam, the sort of eight year old a 10 year old, what would it Sam wanted to be when she grew up.
Sam Bearfoot [35:56]
I wanted to be either a marine biologist dentist.
David Ralph [36:01]
So not a million miles away from what you you’re into now Really?
Sam Bearfoot [36:05]
And well, the dentist aspect I suppose not. And marine biology I think for aquatics and fish and you know, stuff like that, but I’m terrified water. So that wasn’t gonna work. And I was actually Well actually, you know, like when you’re yet young and you have to go and tell your head of school, what they call head shooters or something and what you wanted to be when we did that my career
David Ralph [36:30]
offices or something,
Sam Bearfoot [36:31]
Yeah, something like that. And I said, You know, I want to be a dentist or a marine biologist and he I remember him looking at me he was that right? And he wrote it down, and I left and then obviously your parents going after. And he told my parents I wasn’t clever enough for that. And I should really think about something more administration.
David Ralph [36:48]
That is that is horrific, isn’t it? And I think all career offices, you know, and I’m sure there’s gonna be some good ones, but God, I’ve never come across any of them. They’re just dreadful. Doom crushes on they they just they find the dream and they will jump on it instead of saying to somebody, yes, you can be but new lead singer of Duran Duran, if you want to be. There you go, Well, that’s not realistic. No, really, you should think about working in a bank or whatever. And I think, surely whether they get to be what they want to be the spirit of wanting to achieve is the main thing.
Sam Bearfoot [37:25]
Yeah, yeah, exactly. Because it just it killed my dreams, you know, and I remember thinking, what can I do now? And I really had no idea. You know, when I left school, I had no idea what I wanted to do. You know, is my parents I did put me in college and I had to be a hairdresser because I liked playing with my hair. I just I didn’t have a clue.
David Ralph [37:46]
So many people are the same. I got my first job, but because my mom sent off the letters to the bank, and I got in the interview, and I went and I really wasn’t interested in going into it. And it was it was a terrible interview I remember going up to London in my first new suit that my mom had bought me and it wasn’t a very nice suit. And it was a really hot day. And I had my tie on. It was the first time I’d gone up to London. So I was all nervous. And I was standing just about to go in, and his taxi went past his muddy puddle. And it swamped me like a tsunami. So I went into this interview, in a suit that was sweaty, with mud pouring down my face, thinking, thank God, I’m not going to get this job. This is amazing. I can go back and say to my mom, I’ve done my best. And I went in there. And by about five minutes, I said, Yeah, you’ve got a job. And I thought, Oh, my God. And so I went into the path, thinking, I’ve got to get to this as soon as possible. But it’s all like feeling that but knowing what you’re going to do to replace it. That’s the thing, isn’t it? And that’s what takes people so many years to find that thing that really excites them. So although your mom and dad pushed you into it in a kind The way they knew you didn’t know because I pushed you into an environment that you are engaging with people. First of all, you’re using your hands, you’re learning a skill, you seem a very intuitive, interesting person so that the process of learning something seems to me would be something that would interest you anyway.
Sam Bearfoot [39:20]
Yeah. If anything, what it taught me was that I was a smart girl, but I didn’t learn very well from, you know, traditional teaching. So sitting in a classroom, reading a book, writing it down, that’s not my style. And even to this day, I struggle with that. But what it taught me, you know, in hairdressing school is that I learned with my hands, and I learned hands on and I did a three year course in a space of a year, because I just snapped through it and did it.
David Ralph [39:55]
Show your hustle or does that show that you were been just interested? Or are you competitive?
Unknown Speaker [40:02]
Probably all of that.
Sam Bearfoot [40:05]
I am very competitive.
But not, you know, not in an horrid way. But I think I just found the way that I learned for the first time, you know, because you don’t really get to learn much. I mean, I was always good at like wood work and textiles and things like that at school, and that’s all like hands on type things. But I’d never kind of I was too young, you know, I was too young to sort of catch on that actually learning hands on was the way that I like to learn. But yeah, going to hairdressing school, right? You kind of the penny dropped. And I realised that I probably went through this eight because I kind of enjoyed it, because I’m pretty competitive, and I wanted to be everybody else. And see, it was my style when I found my style. And obviously from that, you know, what I do now is really, really hands on
David Ralph [40:52]
is one of those things that people actually have to ask themselves and you’ve raised it quite nicely, what is my style and if a People person, Ben, should they be working in an administration role? If I are somebody that likes animals, should they be working, you know, in that kind of environment, not necessarily with animals, it might be with children, it might be that kind of nurturing side of them that I like. They like to look after something. And I don’t think people do actually asked that question enough, do they? I don’t mean they sit down and actually ask the three questions. What do I love doing? Where do I love doing it? And what would my friends say? But I was good at.
Sam Bearfoot [41:33]
Yeah, exactly. But I think again, you know, as I was saying before, we’re so conditioned to do things in a very certain unstructured way, that unless we’re challenged to think outside of that zone, we just don’t and i think that’s that’s kind of sad.
David Ralph [41:50]
So you’re being challenged at the moment because I know that your, your career working for somebody is getting close to coming to the end. So Very shortly you will be fully entrepreneurial and body seeing and digestion detective will be your income provider. Does that scare you? Or now you’ve already moved down that route is just exciting.
Sam Bearfoot [42:14]
It’s just exciting. Yeah, it’s, it’s a long time coming. And I made the move from a full time job to a part time job a few years ago. So I knew that for me to be able to get to where I wanted to be to figure out where I wanted to go. I couldn’t do that with a nine, you know, nine to 530. So I moved to a 93. And, and that’s what I’ve been doing for the last few years. So it’s time it’s, you know, it does there does come a time where you do have to make that gigantic leap, and hope for the best and see how it goes. And I, I think I’ve done a pretty good job of setting my foundations fairly solid. So I’m just going to continue to build on that and go from there. But yeah, I’m more excited than anything
David Ralph [42:59]
because I I love the fact of the unknown. And I’m a great believer now. And I will say this to all the listeners out there, that when you start something, you think how the hell am I going to do this? But when you actually start doing it, you realise, oh, I’ve done it. And then there’s something else that comes along. And there’s something else. And I was saying to Sam, before we started recording, I suddenly realised, but I hadn’t planned this show very well. And I record a certain amount of shows each week. And it didn’t dawn on me, but there’s this thing called Christmas, where people like to be with their family, and they’re not willing to actually do any recordings. So when I was asking people to come on the show, they were saying, Do you realise it’s Christmas Dave in and I was oh my god. And I suddenly had this two week burst of no shows recorded, I was thinking how the hell am I gonna get this done? But you do it, don’t you? You think right. Okay, I need to send out emails. I need to have someone need to get people on and you do stuff. And I want people to know that it’s not a scam When you’re doing it as it is when you’re thinking about it,
Sam Bearfoot [44:04]
no, absolutely not. And you know what, that’s, that’s the whole mindset thing that I’ve had to learn, you know, over the last year or so is that actually the thing that you’re placing the fear on, you’re the one that’s in control of that fear. And the bigger you make it the worst it’s going to be but actually 10 times out of 10 it’s never as bad as it seems. And I think this justice, you know, there’s a certain group of people that can take that step over and beyond that, that fear and there’s some people that just kind of tippy toe up to it and maybe dip their toe in the water and an edge back. And I’ve certainly learned that, you know, whatever you think is fearful. It’s probably not you just have to get on and do it.
David Ralph [44:46]
Well, what was the most scary thing that you can think of it now? What was coming up in your life? Obviously, you’re leaving your company.
Sam Bearfoot [44:54]
Yeah, he’s that that doesn’t really scare me.
David Ralph [44:57]
So you know, gonna be growing Your company as big as possible, and obviously hiring more people and that and when you’re in the lap of the gods with the more people you hire, the more but you might get some dodgy ones and some great ones and all that kind of stuff. Does that scare? You?
Sam Bearfoot [45:13]
Know, because I’ve, I’ve, I’ve had to hire and fire people for the last 15 years. So, no, that doesn’t bother me in the slightest. What the most scary thing if you want the Absolute Truth, the scariest thing for me at the moment, and I had a call with my mentor this morning and you know, spoke to her about this. I’m actually launching an online club, and it’s where people get access to me, I will help them and I will provide them with lots of different you know, tips and tricks and everything that I’ve learned over the years. So there’s an online you know, there’s an online club that people can go into, and there’s downloads and videos and, you know, all that kind of that kind of thing, and I’m terrified about releasing it because I’m just worried it’s not good enough.
David Ralph [45:53]
But that’s human, isn’t it? Yeah, that is totally human. I I’m doing a similar thing at the moment. And one of the things that scared me most about this show was not the launching of it, it was when it suddenly became really successful. That was doubly scary, because it was a white when it wasn’t successful. But when it was, I didn’t know whether I was good enough. I suppose it’s the Paul McCartney thing again, am I good enough to keep it going? Can I Ben take that level of success and actually improve upon it? Or is that my peak? Do I hit that plateau? So the fact that you are releasing this product to the world, all you’re saying is, I believe in its value, but is the value big enough to be rewarded? That’s the key thing. Are people going to look at that and go, yes, this is what I want. This is what I’ve been waiting for. And in your heart of hearts, you really know the answer already? And the answer is, would I be happy with this with my experience of the product with my experience of the issues where people are going to come to would I look at this and go, yes, this solves the problems and if it solves the problems and you know, No, that is what people are going to be looking for. Because you would look for the same thing. Good.
Sam Bearfoot [47:06]
Yeah, that’s that’s kind of it because there’s, I mean, there’s tend to this dozens, there’s dozens of health coaches out there. There are some of them are fantastic. They really are brilliant. But for me, I’m really specific, you know, really, really specific. I want people I want to help people. That was just like me that had a problem that had an illness. I’ve been to a doctor and just got dismissed, and they’re looking for something I have no idea why. All I know is to type their problem into that Google spacebar and I want to pop up and be the person that helps them. And you know, coming from someone that suffered for a number of years, I’m pretty certain I can relate. And I can point them in the right direction. At the very least, place them on the right path rather than looking at this, you know, crossroads of a million different spaghetti junction exits, and it’ll just be helpful. No, it will be great. I know Well, when it comes
David Ralph [48:01]
course it will. So what are you scared about? Sir?
Sam Bearfoot [48:05]
It’s weird, isn’t it? I don’t know, it’s because I’ve never done anything like this before.
Unknown Speaker [48:12]
I can understand that.
Sam Bearfoot [48:13]
That’s that’s the way it’s
David Ralph [48:16]
never done before, have you?
Sam Bearfoot [48:17]
I know. I know. I know. And I feel like this every time I do stuff. So, and I never back out with anything that I could think of recently anyway. So I know that I’ll do it. And you know what, the one thing that my mentor was saying to me is, you know what, you put it out, and it flops. You’re going to learn from it in the same way that you’ve learned from everything else that you’ve fallen over. And yeah, it’s so true. It does flop, I’ll get the feedback from the people that didn’t want it. And I’ll find out why they thought it was rubbish, or they thought it wasn’t useful or whatever. And I will rebuild it and I will make it better.
David Ralph [48:49]
Yeah, absolutely. I’m building something at the moment. And when I said to the guy who I’m building it with, I said to him, Look, this is the star we can improve upon it. This is the start and it’s not going to be be as good as the end product because it never is. But it’s going to be something and that something is normally a lot better fan, but nothing.
Sam Bearfoot [49:10]
Sure. Yeah, perhaps. Yeah, absolutely. And for all I know, you know, I could love it, I could absolutely love it and here’s me worrying good, it’s gonna be awful and they don’t want it and actually, I’m completely wrong. And I hope that’s the case. Well, they
David Ralph [49:24]
will love it anyway. Because he, you if you put your personality and you put your the essence, but you are bringing onto the show today, which is an engaging, warm, lovely lady who’s very down to earth, who cares, then people will relate to that. And these therapists that you were saying were fantastic. I had this image all doctors again, but I was going to go into a room and not really be listened to. Now they might not be like that at all. But as soon as you said that, that was the image. If I had issues I would come to you because I’m But you know, you would care. And I think that’s the bottom line. And if you care, then people will come to you.
Sam Bearfoot [50:07]
Yeah, I do care, genuinely, I do care. And if I can help, I will. And, you know, one of the things that bothers me slightly is some of these therapists out there and pin and health coaches and things like that, as I say, they are brilliant. And you know, I could have a very easy conversation with them about very many things. But to have a conversation with someone that isn’t of the right mind, like I am, so they don’t have the use of training as me they don’t, you know, they didn’t do very well in biology at school when they don’t know what to do with dma’s or you know, it all don’t cut those kind of words, your words that you can use indigestion, and they kind of a lot of people kind of try to outsmart the customer. And I’m not like that. All the stuff that I put out, I don’t use big words. I don’t need to come to phrases. I really do talk. As I talk now, and I say it how it is because I want people to understand it. And if I’ve got to say it in a really, and I’m using my hands here, common, you know with the fingers. phrase, then that’s that’s what I do. Because if I can get the message across so that it’s not confusing, then that’s what I need to do.
David Ralph [51:19]
You in the right place, Sam Beth, but I’m telling you now this is this is your thing and you will look back on this conversation you will go to now, but David Ralph, he knows a thing or two and he was spot on.
Sam Bearfoot [51:32]
Yeah, he didn’t know what it was funny because when I was at the IPS roadshow, I was the only person that said the word fart. And, you know, and I was on stage with them. 600 people on stage and they were all talking about digestion, and they used other words, you know, fancy words. And I of course, I understand the fancy words I’ve had to study anatomy and physiology. You may want a
David Ralph [51:51]
fancy word because I’m struggling to think of one off the top of my head.
Sam Bearfoot [51:55]
Oh, I don’t know. It’s long phrases like smelling testing bacterial overgrowth or CV you know, if I said to do you know, if you haven’t got if you’ve got sibur would you know what I’m talking about?
David Ralph [52:05]
No. Is that kind of like a mild salsa Dorito dip?
Sam Bearfoot [52:10]
You see, and you know, people just don’t get that. And
David Ralph [52:17]
it’s it’s small, small. I was the thing you said before?
Sam Bearfoot [52:21]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it is. And it’s basically it’s an overgrowth in the gut. And you know, it can disrupt digestion, it’s usually higher up just maybe below the bright line. It’s where you get the bloating feeling and the burning sometimes it’s there. So generally, people need some really, really serious friendly bacteria, but it’s very specific kind. But you’re not people aren’t going to understand that and we got halfway through to lunch and I said to be the company that put it on, put the show on. And I say, Anthony, why am I the only person that said fart? And he was like, well, they other successful and I said, No, they haven’t they said flatulence or popping off. Or you know, wind. I said, but no one said the word fart. Do they realise that the general public really understand the word fart? He just laughed. And he was like, You know what, Sam? That’s exactly why I have you on stage. Okay, thanks.
David Ralph [53:15]
That is the biggest compliment, isn’t it? Really what he’s saying is you are being totally real.
Sam Bearfoot [53:21]
Yeah. That’s what I really try. I do really genuinely try. And sometimes I’ll write something. I’m in the middle of writing a book too. And sometimes I write it and I write it with like, my technical brain on and I have to sort of read it back. I’m like, No, no, that’s too low. It’s too complicated. That’s that start that again. So I’m really I’m really making an effort to to create something, a product, various different products that anybody Joe public can pick up, understand and run with.
David Ralph [53:48]
So all coming together, isn’t it? Your journey is coming together. And we’re going to play some words now, which are the theme of the show. And these are the words Steve Jobs said back in 2005 when he talked about Being on a journey and not knowing where your future is, but having the courage and the faith to go forward. This is Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs [54:08]
Of course, it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards 10 years later. Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path. And that will make all the difference.
David Ralph [54:43]
So what do you trust in yourself?
Unknown Speaker [54:46]
Sam Bearfoot [54:50]
I think I just trust myself. I trust myself to make good choices. And I trust the people, the close people that I haven’t me to keep me really sane. And keep me on that path of because you know yes I’m very positive and you know action taking and you know all that sort of stuff but you know what I am just to go that still questions myself and question my ability and what I do and sometimes I just want to sit in a corner and go Leave me alone world I don’t want to talk to you today. So I really do need and and trust the people that are around me to sort of give me a swift slap and say, Sam, you just having a down day go and get a bit of cake and a cup of tea and it’ll be fine.
David Ralph [55:35]
And do you buy into those words that Steve Jobs said?
Sam Bearfoot [55:40]
Yeah, I do. Because there’s not much in my past that I would change. And because I have the outlook that everything I do I do for a reason whether it’s right or wrong, and I try my best to learn from anything that I do. That’s maybe not quite right.
David Ralph [55:58]
Well, let’s take you back in time now because This is the end of the show, and you have delivered so many nuggets of gold for this show. So it’s been an amazing one. But this is when I send you back in time to have a one on one with your younger self. And if you could go back in time and speak to the young Sam, what age would you choose? And what advice would you give? Well, we’re going to find out because I’m going to play the theme tune and when it fades you up. This is the Sermon on the mic
Unknown Speaker [56:29]
with the best of the show.
Sam Bearfoot [56:45]
Okay, so I’m talking to the mini me that’s aged, maybe about 12 to 13. And what I need you to do is I need you to pay a little bit more attention in class in science. Specifically in biology, because you’re going to find it really useful in the future. But what I need you to also do is that teacher that’s going to tell your parents that you’re not good enough and that you’re not clever enough, he’s talking out of his ass. So you need to ignore that. And then actually, what you’re going to do is you’re not going to really know much about what you want to do when you leave school. So just go with the path that your parents put you on because actually, it kind of opens up and shows you away. But when you get the job at McDonald’s, that’s really not good for your ass again, because it gets really fat. So when you go take a packed lunch, don’t eat the rubbish, although you do need to kind of be a little bit rubbish because if you don’t, you’re not going to get the IBS, which is how you then have to find a way to cure yourself. And then you eventually become the digestion detective, which, just so you know, is really, really awesome.
David Ralph [57:54]
Sam, how can our audience connect with you?
Sam Bearfoot [57:58]
Well, there’s plenty ways I’m all over the net so you can Twitter there’s there’s a few if you type in the digestion detective you’ll find two of me so there’s act body sync and that’s me just be me barely you’re going to get all my bits and pieces work wise but you’ll also get some my little golden nuggets of humour is just me and my personality. Whereas the digestion detective that’s that’s all work. Instagram the digestive detective again. So pictures of socks and shoes and lipstick and you know all the girly stuff that you’d expect. Facebook again, the digestion detective, and I share all kinds of weird and wonderful things on there. He might you know, the most recent thing is glitter tablets for your post, which I thought was ice.
David Ralph [58:41]
And why would you want that?
Sam Bearfoot [58:44]
I’m not sure. But you know what, if anyone’s going to share something that makes you your po glittery? It’s the DD right?
David Ralph [58:50]

Sam Bearfoot [59:00]
