How embracing discipline, drive, and determination can lead you to your best life regardless of the circumstances you are confronted with. Maya Angelou once said, “The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.” This is true for any endeavor we undertake, especially when we do self-work. Our lives will be shaped by what we want, but our ultimate greatness will be determined by those who we affect. In this episode, we talk to Rael Bricker about his journey from working in South African mines to finding out about health issues to finally finding his true calling - working toward helping others be excellent. To excel is to go beyond the standard, to stand apart or to stand out. Let’s discuss in this episode how you can access your own excellence and challenge your and other’s path to reaching it.
How a simple approach to conflict resolution and hard conversations might allow you to truly be seen, heard, and validated. Because you know, the elephant always comes with a mouse. David Wood, founder of Focus CEO believes in the power of naming things. Specifically, David has created a system that can allow you to identify, describe, simplify, organize and, more importantly, engage with difficult people, conversations and even yourself. These named things, he calls Mice. Naming what's right in front of us gives shape and form to what can be invisible - insult, shame, fear, curiosity, etc. In this episode, David and I discuss how we can better manage our lives, take accountability and be more productive. We review his Mice methodology and roleplay some Mice I have in my life. Naming things, being engaged, and fighting denial is necessary work. Right? Let’s talk about it.
How developing strategic, trusted partnerships can allow you to overcome fear,  take charge and make the right decisions. As entrepreneurs, we all tend to have an obsessive take on our business which can sometimes lead to micromanagement, unilateral decision-making, and a healthy fear of delegation. That’s not the space that we want for ourselves or our companies. In this episode, we speak to attorney Dara Rosenbaum, founding partner at Rosenbaum and Taylor, about developing trusted partnerships. We not only discuss how attorneys can support your business goals and demystify the law for you, but we also cover how to let go of the reins and give some of the responsibility of your business to subject matter experts. It’s hard work to build a mutual, trusting relationship, but vetting and asking the right questions can help establish your expectations and their competence from the start. Let’s discuss how it can be done.
How dedicating just minutes a day to reading can vastly improve your family’s success trajectory. Top CEOs read 60 books a month. Your child reading for 30 minutes a day can critically improve their grade scores. What would happen if you and your family read every day? You would be in line with top CEOs, and your kids would kill it in school. That’s a part of Danny Brassell’s mission. In addition to being a multi-book author, speaker and coach, Danny wants to help parents and students understand the importance of developing strong reading habits and the effect they can have on your lives. This former South Central LA teacher has fought for literacy globally: reaching developing countries and spreading this message throughout the US to get you and your family to read more.

One of the greatest strategies to wellness that you can be offered is the opportunity to affordably see the world. Marco Torres wants you to see the world, and to make that happen; he has created a company to facilitate the ability for businesses to provide you travel perks.

Starting in Puerto Rico, Marco was determined to be the best at delivering papers as a boy, the best restaurateur as a young adult and now the best entrepreneur.

How music can directly impact mood, health, fitness, and well-being. It's no secret that music has properties that allow us to tap into frequencies, and wavelengths that catalyze mood, thought, and focus. Did you know that changing how your body recovers from injury is possible based on the music you are exposed to? I didn't, but my guest, Mark Romero is not only a world-renowned musician and frequent collaborator with NASA, he is a killer guitarist. As part of my "Wellness Series," let's explore how music not only frees but how it also heals.
How we relate to others and ourselves can determine our trajectory of success. Know thyself. It's a mandate that so many of us have quoted, yet so few are truly invested in. Why? I believe that knowing yourself is as liberating as it is frightening. That means that many of us are operating in this world with how we think we are being perceived and not infact how people interact with us. That's a problem that we can fix. Enter Dave Molenda. Dave Molenda isn't just an author, coach, and entrepreneur; he is the proponent of self-assessment and using that assessment to move positively through the world. As part of my "Wellness Series," we look at what it takes to know yourself and how that affects the world around you. Let's go!
How spiritual wellness is a cost-free collaborative process of learning, experiencing, and connecting to something that already exists plentifully. Everyone thinks that they have it figured out. You ask most people about spirituality and they will give you their religion and the belief system it prescribes. But what would happen in a world where we all openly discussed our personal experiences with a higher power and all the ways in which that higher power communicates. That's why I'm talking to spiritual coach and shaman Martin Theis about accessing learning from all things. As part of my "Wellness Series," we question if all things are created by a Creator, then we can learn wellness from both oceans and teachers, right? Let's discuss.
How discovering one's true mission and points of fulfillment can not only change individual lives but entire communities of people. We consistently hear that change starts with you. What if we were to embrace that ideal truly? If person by person, we made ourselves better and for a net effect of that, the world became better. That is Stephen Milverton's take on empowerment, change and community. He posits that as each of us journeys toward our purpose, we then can then form villages with others who are accessing their version of purpose. As part of my "Wellness Series," we talk about wellness through growth, enlightenment, community, employment and the danger of cults.
How you can improve your overall health by investing in long standing cures that pre-date Western medicine. Every day there's a new superfood, antioxidant, or berry that can revolutionize your dietary needs and health. For entrepreneurs, leaders and pretty much everyone, we consistently look for the item with the greatest return on investment. We want the cheat code to longevity. But how can we determine the right dosage, herbs and combinations if we are infact engaging with unregulated medicine? That's the talk we are having with Magic Barclay. She is an expert on holistic and organic treatments and tells her own story of recovery from multiple illnesses. As part of my "Wellness Series," we look at how being informed about global methods of healing and nutrition can round out some of the practices we adopt, with Magic Barclay.
How you invest your resources can be the difference between life and death. Bronson isn't only a company founder and investor; he is passionate about his contribution to ending human trafficking and all the atrocities that exist in that ecosystem. So, we not only talk about how to make money and invest soundly but also how access to resources can lower the risk of being trafficked in much of the world. Many instances of someone stolen away to be trafficked in the news play out like it's "Taken," but instead it's often done to impoverished people hoping for a better life. As part of our "Wellness Series," we look at wellness through the lens of financial literacy and equity to discuss these passions of Bronson.

This is where Brenden Kumarasamy comes in. He coaches individuals on how to use language and communication to bridge gaps in thinking, to become more persuasive and to win.
