Episode #17 Ant Utama - Brave

Hello everybody and welcome to Running from Comfort Episode, 17 'Brave' featuring Anthony Utama.

Anthony left his cushy cozy job in marketing in New Zealand on a whim to join his girlfriend in Germany and pursue his love for music and do it as a full time career. Anthony began hustling, performing on the streets, creating gig opportunities and put himself out there in order to sustain himself to be able to live and survive as a musician full time.

Ant recently released his first single 'Brave' to not just tell his story but to tell the story of anyone who makes the decision to get outside their comfort zone and pursue their dreams without fear of failure holding them back.

Anthony shares his story today and talks about the fears he had to overcome in order to go pursue music full time. We also chat about what the transition was like for him to go pursue his love for music full time. We also discuss what it's like to not listen to other's opinions including those of his loving parents in order to make his dreams a reality.

I encourage you all to go check out Anthony and his music using the links below: 

Check out his first single Brave here:

Hey everybody, today's episode is all about forgiveness and the power that it holds. I have spent the past month reflecting deeply about my life and feel I am beginning to understand the signifigance of forgiveness. In this talk I explain my thoughts and beliefs on forgiveness. The first half of this video explains it from a perspective of how we need to forgive people in order to let go of the hurt that we experience in this life. The second half I tie this into how God forgives us and that if we seek his forgiveness he can and will fill the void in our lives and help heal us from our own pain and suffering. Even if you don't believe in God I encourage you, watch the first half and if you want, stick around for the second half. Anyways I hope you enjoy this episode of the show and if you do, please give it a rating and and review and don't forget to like and subscribe and to share this with somebody else who may need to hear this message.

In today's show we talk about Robbie's story and how he was able to build his business from the ground up with 0 capital and not a whole lot of  experience. Robbie's game plan getting into business was to just get started and figure out what he needed to as he progressed along.

Welcome to episode 13 of the show. In today's episode our guest is Rex Afrasiabi, director of MA Legal, the law firm which gave me my first taste of the legal industry. In today's episode I talk to Rex about his career and try to unpack the mindset that he has used to see the success that he has had in his career thus far.


I encourage you all to pay attention to what Rex has to say in terms of finding success and especially when he talks about taking on risks in the world of business. Even if you are not a business owner or do not intend to be, this advice really does apply to life if you frame it within the context of what you may be doing in your day to day life.

Welcome to Episode #12 and I will give you all a good warning now, this episode is essentially a rant.

I go hard as to why I believe we need to stop feeding FOMO and start fighting it with perspective and positivity.

I also wrap up my trip in the Philippines and share some footage from there to offer some perspective from another side of the world.

The message of today's show that I am trying to get across is really to help us understand just how blessed we are over here, and how we may be able to tackle some of our mental health issues that we can overcome.

Welcome to Episode #11 of Running from Comfort and the second edition of the Solo show. In today's episode I discuss the topics about whether social media is exposing us, how to overcome your insecurities and why you should take steps to conquer your fear of rejection.


I attended an event this week where entrepreneur superstar Gary Vaynerchuk was the headlining speaker. During the event he held a Q & A and I asked him a question which features in this episode. His response to my question I thought was quite profound so I decided to spend this weeks episode of the podcast discussing this in greater detail.


In discussing the topic of whether or not social media is exposing us I then transition into talking about overcoming insecurities and conquering your fear of rejection. These are two things that I have struggled with in my own personal life but I have seen massive change in my own life as I attempt to beat them.


If you enjoy today's episode then make sure you share it with somebody who could also benefit from it.

I hope you guys enjoy, please do not forget to subscribe.


Tony’s advice to his younger self -


“Don’t worry kid, everything will work out ok


Don’t listen to people that don’t understand your chosen direction. Most of these people will be stuck where they are and will live with regret. Don’t be afraid to fail. Whether it is a best lift, a job, a relationship or a dream. Failure teaches us what we need to push forward.


Success is failure turned inside out.


Dream bigger. Because if you dream small, that is what you will get.


Don’t rely on anyone else for your happiness or self  worth. People and circumstances change.


Keep seeing the good in people, it will always outweigh the bad.


Don’t ever do anything to prove someone wrong. Do it all to prove yourself right.


Train yourself to sleep less and live more. Life is short, don’t waste a moment.


Be genuinely curious, make friends wherever your travel.


Have many layers. Reveal your layers slowly, only as you learn to trust people.


Never hesitate to help others and share your knowledge. This cannot be quantified but always comes back ten fold.


Realise that everything happens for a reason. Strive to be happy, life is an amazing ride.


Don’t worry kid, everything will work out ok.”
