Will Marre I have been a fan of Will Marrè’s for a long time.  His workshops and writings are fantastic!!! He is a joy to listen to and  dialogue with.

His new book entitled, “Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner“,  is designed to enlighten and move his readers to action.  All of us can admit that we live in a world that is constantly changing.  Our lives have been moving at a faster pace, and we are looking for more meaning and purpose in our personal and professional lives.

Will’s new book ” Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner” is written to get you thinking about your personal promise.  What is is that you would do to make a difference in the world?  What is your personal promise to yourself and your family?

Will asks you to “change how you think about change.”  To create a world of sustainable abundance which means to find the pulse of life we can maintain that doesn’t burn us out or exhaust us but enables us to be fully present in each moment filled with both gratitude and new solutions.

If we are to live lives filled with sustainable abundance, then as leaders we need to be Real Leaders.  We need to be responsible, ethical, create abundance and a legacy.  When we look at our world from a real leadership perspective our challenges become opportunities, and our decisions are made with the whole world in mind.

Will encourages individuals to know themselves, to dig deep within themselves and do some soul searching.  Why are you here?  What is your promise, and how can you fulfill it?

As the author articulates,  soul as I mean the word is not some poetic spiritual abstraction or article of religious dogma, but the core essence of who we are as living breathing, feeling, thinking human beings.  Our soul is the deepest dimension of our awareness, as silent intelligence that underlies all of our mental and emotional functions.  Our soul is not the object of our thinking.  It is the thinker.  The “me” before the thoughts.  is is the sacred essence of our individual identity.

So if you are looking to search your soul, and find a place within yourself that resonates with the essence of your being and from this place be moved to take action and make a difference in this world, then I not only highly recommend “Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner” I also recommend that you watch some of Will’s great video’s on Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner by clicking here.

You are going to love this interview with Will Marrè, and I know you will want to read this book more than once to really dig into the essence of the message.

Lisa NirellAre you interested in learning how to energize growth in your business?

If this interests you then you are going to love my interview with author and business consultant Lisa Nirell.

Her new book entitled, “Energize Growth Now”,  is all about how you can make a shift in your business growth by working smarter and not harder.  I know that for most entrepreneurs the hours dedicated to launching a new business are endless, and then when you get momentum, often the zest you had for the business is lost because you are not using as much of your creative energies.  Your business becomes more process and procedure without creative energy.

Lisa says that it takes clear vision and enduring principles to succeed over the long term.  Her new book “Energize Growth Now” shows you how to:

  • Avoid the pitfalls of running a growth company.
  • Tackle the common misconceptions that distract from your goals and sabotage good ideas.
  • Create a vision of your business’s future that keeps everyone focused and energized.
  • Develop a strategic growth plan that actually works
  • Adopt quickly to changes in your market and your business.
  • Link your brand to your growth plan to maximize market traction.
  • Launch online communities and social networks that foster long-term relationships and develop true customer evangelists.

In her book, Lisa addresses how beliefs can pose one of the biggest threats to our business growth.   You see our brains process the incoming data and decide if it is important or not to our success.  As a result of our filters we form our own reality, and as a result of our realities we begin to believe or not believe what may play an important role in our personal and business success.

If you are interested in moving your business to a whole new level of creativity, innovation and growth, then I highly recommend that you listen to my interview with author Lisa Nirell.  Her book, ” Energize Growth Now“,  is a wonderful read, and she is an inspiring consultant and coach.

Jeffrey GittermanIs money really the root of all evil?  In my interview with Jeffrey Gitterman we explore the fascinating relationship and role that money plays in  our lives.  Gitterman, a successful financial advisor and rags to riches story, has done an amazing job with his new book entitled, “Beyond Success”, in helping the reader to understand the true meaning of money.  Gitterman shares his liberating and dynamic approach to lasting spiritual, creative and financial fulfillment.  He draws on his own experiences and stories of many people he has worked with and learned from. The key to success, he says, is an ongoing commitment to doing, giving and accomplishing.  Gitterman states, “When we really understand that there is nothing we can get that will make us happy, we can stop striving to accumulate more and more”.   He says that we need to redirect our ‘seeking system,’ enlist it in the service of what we want to express to the world, rather than how we want to feel

Challenging the value of both conventional and material standards and fleeting emotional states, “Beyond Success” presents a new currency for measuring success: attention.  As Jeff makes clear, the intangible force of attention is the key to economic, commercial, political and social and personal power.  Why is attention so powerful? “Because,” as Jeff sums it up, “what you choose to put your attention on is where you direct your energy — in all its many forms, including your time, your creativity, and of course your money”.

Jeffrey Gitterman is one of the most interesting authors I have interviewed regarding our relationship to money, and how with some minor shifts in our conscious thought and spiritual understanding of how to utilize money for good we can grow our abundance in all areas of our lives.

I hope you enjoy this interview Jeff, and if you would like to learn more about his Beyond Success workshops and other coaching services please visit his website.

Alexander GreenIn these uncertain economic times we could all use a boost of confidence.  In my interview with Alexander Green about his new book entitled “The Secret of Shelter Island” that is exactly what you will receive.  Alex has a great perspective on how to look differently at our current economic meltdown (as the media often refer to it).  He states that we have the opportunity to reassess our entire life and re-prioritize what is important in our lives.  This is our opportunity to look inside and have a spiritual awakening to what really is valuable for us. Is it our bank accounts? Or is it the people and relationships around us that truly enrich our lives and bring us fulfillment and meaning?

Alex’s book is primarily a compilation of essays from his newsletter entitled Spiritual Wealth, a newsletter that he has been writing for a number of years. He says that it is only human to want to better our material conditions, but ironically the relentless quest for more often undermines our quality of life.  The truth is successful lives are built, not bought, and the over consumptive lifestyle ultimately limits our choices.

In my interview with Alex we explore this idea of “not-enoughness,” and what it has done to our culture and how is has depleted our souls. How this ever-persistent pursuit of more has really helped to create the challenging economic times we are experiencing.  In the continual pursuit of greater material success some of us lose important relationships, our health, our perspective, our peace of mind.  Alex says that our happiness is highly dependent on principle-centered living.  The secret to balance. Pursue your financial ambitions, but take time to appreciate your health, friends, family are the world around you.

In this interview we have the opportunity to explore how to shift our perspectives and relationship with money as well truly examine what might have greater significance for us.

I love a quote the Alex uses in the book by J. Brotherton and it says “My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions, but in the fewness of my wants.”  How true this is, and how important to remember as we navigate these interesting economic times.
Alex has written a wonderful book which will help anyone who reads it identify just what truly could be causing their financial challenges, and in so doing provides the reader with the opportunity to learn how to close the gap between their wants and needs.
