What an honor to interview Rick Hanson the author of another great book entitled “Hardwiring Happiness“.  My last interview with Rick was for his book “Just One Thing, Developing A Buddha Brain One Simple Practice at a Time”.  

In our interview together we get to dialogue about how our brains are not really hardwired for happiness, and how to use various practices that will help us to rewire our brains for happiness.  Rick explains the “three” layers of the brain which I think is fascinating and allows us to better understand  the “why” behind our inability to just get happy.  One of his practices Rick has developed, and he uses the acronym  “HEAL” , which stand for Have, Enrich, Absorb and Link.  This is a simple process developed to awaken us so we can reprogram our brains for happiness.

Another simple process he discusses in our inteview is just taking the time to notice our positive experiences.  This might sound simple but when was the last time that we took a few minutes to just bask in the awe of one of our happy moments.  As Rick states this helps us to reprogram the brains to better be wired to happiness.  I can not guarantee that we will all become Dalai Lama’s after listening to my interview with Rick, but it will put you on the right track to greater levels of happiness.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with a fascinating author and advocate for well being and happiness.

I am not aware of a soul on this planet that at sometime or another has not wished that they could find a good doctor or naturopath to help them with an ailment or pain.  Many of us have seen the videos or experienced in person “healers” such as John of God or others, and I aware it is easy to walk away with a skeptical perspective.

I was introduced to Master Sha by Bill Gladstone, his book agent here in Southern California.  Don’t get me wrong I have not met Master Sha, but had the opportunity to speak with Bill Gladstone about his personal experience with Master Sha. As you will hear in my interview with Master Sha he is for real.  Everyone that I have spoken with that has encountered  Master Sha or attended one of his healing events is just in awe of his healing powers.

In my interview with Master Sha we have the opportunity to speak about his personal history, and the blending of ancient Chinese practices of Qi Gong, Tai Chi, acupuncture into something he refers to at “energy medicine”.  We also discuss “karma cleansing” which is something that Master Sha refers to and is associated with disease or ailments that we bring in from past lives.  Master Sha has helps his clients remove these energy blockages and become free from the pain and disease, that may have emanated from past lives.

I encourage my listeners to visit Master Sha’s website and watch some of the videos, then you can judge for yourself.

There is also a workshop coming up at the Agape International Spiritual Center on December 13th.  Just click on this link to learn more about the day long event.  Enjoy my interview with Master Sha, and I hope you will be able to attend this healing event.


This last summer I had the pleasure of being invited to visit an extraordinary collection of crystals, fossils, geodes and other amazing artifacts that Richard Berger has collected over his 40 plus years of being the curriorator of “the Masterpieces of the Earth” collections.

You must keep in mind as you visit his website at Masterpieces of the Earth and watch the video and view the gallery pictures that this is a private collection unlike anything that I have ever seen, and I would assume anyone listening to and viewing the photos has seen.

In my interview with Richard we discuss the special healing power of the crystals and the incredible energy that each of these artifacts emits to the viewer.  I know the effect that it had on me was a vibration that was peaceful, warm and very inviting.  It was almost as if the crystals and fossils were calling to me, and inviting me to harmonize with the inner vibration.

Richard’s mission is to turn the collection into a public museum so that all people can partake of the wonderful collection and get to experience these huge crystals and fossils that are were on the planet millions of years before the dinosaurs.   Just imagine having the opportunity to experience such an exhibit.

If you want to learn more about the exhibit, and helping Richard preserve it in its current state I recommend you reaching out to him via the website, or you can email him at richard@masterpiecesoftheearth.com.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with a man who has the passion to preserve a wonderful piece of history.

There is no doubt that Scott Jordan the founder of ScotteVest is a passionate man.  He has built a fashion technology brand of clothing into a $50 million dollar business.  I recently had the pleasure of doing an interview with Scott,  about his new book entitled “Pocket Man” and we discussed everything from his strained relationship with his father, to the wonderful women in his life–his mother and wife Laura.

Scott’s story is not just another rags to riches journey, he is passionate about teaching others to follow their dreams.  That anyone can do what Scott did with passion, promotion and a lot of drive.  Scott has always moved fast and believes in speed, even when it comes to making decision in business.  Scott states that you can learn more from a day of doing than you can from a week of thinking.  He obviously is a man of action, and willing to take calculated risks.

Scott started in his fathers business selling cemetery plots, this is a tough sale to say the least but Scott learned a lot from being involved in the family business , and he attributes much of his success from what he learned from his father.  Passion for what you do is at the foundation of shameless personal promotion, and Scott appearance on Shark Tank and turning down a $1,000,000 offer might have been the culmination of a great promotional effort.

Lets face it there is a health and nutrition revolution going on in our country, or is there?  If you look at the statistics in the media it does not seem like we are making great progress.  So what is the secret?  How can we improve our health, and vitality?

In my recent interview with Howard Koseff MD and his wife Lauri Koseff we discuss the techniques and plan outlined in their new book entitled ” Power UP, Transform Your Life and Health in 14 Days.”  It is really quite simple, no major detox plans just plain old whole foods loaded with nutrient rich green vegetables, and nuts. Their plan is does not deprive you of food, it just replaces the foods high  in carbs and sugars with healthy pure food.

Individuals who have adopted the 14 day plan have shed weight, increased their vitality and improved their mental acuity.  The book is filled with delicious, nutrient-dense PURE food which is the medicine of life.  You are provided with shopping lists, and amazing recipes to follow.   I spoke with Lauri about some of those recipes, all of which sound delicious and will leave you feeling satisfied and reduce cravings.

As we approach the year-end, most of us are looking to change our life and I bet lots of us would like to lead a healthier lifestyle.  If you want to start of the New Year with a focus on your well-being and health,  I highly recommend reading and following the recipes in ” Power UP, Transform Your Life and Health in 14 Days.  

I hope you enjoy my interview with Howard and Lauri Koseff, to learn more you can visit their website by clicking here.

We have all heard the saying that “we are spiritual  beings having a human experience”, and I truly believe this is the case.  If this is not the case then what is our bigger purpose for being on this planet?

I recently had the honor of interviewing Indira Dominguez the author of a new book entitled ” YOU, A Spiritual Being on a Spiritual Journey“.  In our dialogue together we discuss the elements of getting our “out of our mind” and that we are not our minds.  Indira guides her readers into a new dimension and paradigm shift about how to access an energy and vibration that connects us to our higher self.  She examines a very important focal point, and that is that we are not  just our minds–we are so much greater.  In most cases we allow our minds to shape our day to day actions, we live in an always on, automatic life.   When we come from this energy, we frequently come from fear, lack, not enough.

If you can learn to separate your mind from Self, you can activate a new dimension where you access your intuitive Self which is always available.  This is where you hightest creativity and awareness resides.  A place of purpose, passion, fulfillment and a life lived from ease.  Indira emphasises that we should listen carefully, and tune into our Self-to understand the duality between the mind and Self.  If we will Trust in our “inner knowing” we will see our eternality and that on a energetic level we are all connected–“One”.

I encourage you to listen to my interview with Indira Dominguez about her new book ” YOU A Spiritual Being on A Spiritual Journey“.  You can also access some great videos of Indira by visiting her website by clicking here.  Enjoy a deeply spiritual interview with a wonderful soul awakening our Self to the higher consciousness just waiting to be engaged.


We are all attempting to improve our lives, while having a more fulfilling personal and professional life.  We all experience peaks and valleys, that seem like a rollercoaster ride at times.   I am always excited  interviewing new authors who have spent much of their lives not only living in the peaks and valley, but finding ways to make life more fulfilling.

In my interview with Dr. Deb Carlin the author of “Build the Strength Within” we explore ways that she has found over the years with working together with her patients to create more exciting and fulfilling lives.  Dr. Carlin has developed a blueprint for success, which focuses on intentional and integrated life.   She has provided a guidebook with self-assessments and direction on how to live a fully integrated life, where we put our focust on all elements, mind body and spirit.

Our mind is only part of the overall equation, but one element that I hear over and over again from our authors is our “self-talk script”, and in particular our negative self-talk.  Dr. Carlin points out that we need to be comfortable in our own skin and be compassionate with ourselves and others. If we would just sit silently with ourselves, and breathe in the essence of life we could learn so much about our higher spiritual calling.

Dr. Carlin’s book is  a guide to building a new blueprint for your life.  It is designed to get you thinking, assessing and acting on your vision for a better life.  She has developed a series of extremely well produced videos that you can view by clicking here.  This video series is provided at no-cost to the reader, and is a wonderful supplement to the book.

As we approach the end of the year, most people are reassessing their lives, goals and vision for the future.  I  highly recommend “Build the Strength Within” as a wonderful book and tool to help you reinvent your current life into one with more passion, purpose and meaning.

Enjoy my wonderful interview with Dr. Deb Carlin.

Our world is moving a very rapid pace, at least that what is seems like to me.  If you have these same feelings and are wondering if your current career is not as fulfilling as it once was then you might want to pay attention to my interview with author Dorie Clark.  Dorie has authored a new book entitled ” Reinventing You-Define Your Brand, Imagine Your Future.”

In my interview with Dorie we discuss not only the “how” of reinventing yourself, but also the “why” you would consider reinvention.  To succeed in today’s competitive job market and build a career that leverages your unique passions and talents, it’s almost certain that at some point you’ll need to reinvent yourself professionally.

Dorie recommends conducting 360 degree interviews, holding focus groups with friends and colleagues, examine your online presence–these ideas are just a few of the simple things one can consider in the reinvention process.   She discusses with me blogging on Linkedin, taking on leadership roles, and to do something she refers to as the “wingman strategy”,  having someone else spread the good  word about your skills and talents.

Dorie new book is filled with ideas, strategies and methods of reinventing to make yourself more marketable.  If you are considering a new career or just wanting to break free and start your own business I would highly recommend reading Dorie’s new book “Reinventing You“.

I hope you enjoy this interview with author Dorie Clark.


If all salespeople would follow the philosophy of Lisa Earle McLeod the author of “Selling with Noble Purpose” our world would be a better place.  Let’s face it we are all consumers of goods and services, and much of the time we are interacting with salespeople to purchase  goods and services.   We all have our horror stories of incredibly bad or dishonest salespeople, and it is never pleasant.

Lisa’s approach is so refreshing and needed in our world of commerce today.  As Lisa states ” Our deepest desire is to make a difference in the world–and our darkest fear is that we won’t.”   A Noble Sales Purpose is the secret of igniting a higher level of thinking and acting so that we are focused on the big picture.  What is our purpose, and are we fulfilling it by providing our products and services to our clients?  When you come from purpose is is proven that you outperform the market by 15:1, organizations that center their business on improving people’s lives have a growth rate triple of their competitors.

Having a focus on something greater than money itself will lead to greater performance, and more satisfied customers.

If you are interested in turning your organization into a purpose driven sales team then I would recommend reading Lisa new book, and listening to the podcast.
