Flic Manning: Living Human (E78)

Flic Manning guest on Crohn's Fitness Food podcast

Enjoy this interview with Flic Manning, author, radio broadcaster, speaker and entrepreneur with a flare for dance. She is a disabled and chronically sick human who built a successful twenty year career as a dancer and choreographer while living with chronic invisible, incurable diseases.

She worked for business legends such as Gary Vaynerchuk and Lesley Gold in San Francisco, California, USA, while becoming a qualified wellbeing and holistic health expert. On her return to Australia, Flic founded Corethentic, a complete wellness system, and is an ambassador for Crohn’s & Colitis Australia, the Mental Health Foundation of Australia, and for FitRec DNA. She hosts “Brainwaves” on 3CR Melbourne—a show dedicated to the lived experience of mental health. 

Flic has a range of qualifications spanning the brain, mind and body; from neuroplasticity, neurobiology, wellness coaching, mindfulness and holistic pain management to fitness and dance. She has written for magazines like OK!, has been featured on Ticker News and Broad Radio Australia, and is a popular speaker working with organizations like the YMCA and Vush.

Her memoir Living Human, which details the lessons she has learned living with invisible illness, is available accessibly in print, digital format, and audiobook and has been called a “Profound story of hope and resilience” by Jacinta Parsons, ABC Broadcaster. She will release her second book The Mind Symphony a book about the brain and body aspects of mindset soon. 

Flic spends most of her time working to change the public perception of disabled and chronically sick people, and in her free time she can be found with her support dog Rocket and her husband by, or in, the ocean.
