Dianne Collins the author of “Do You Quantum Think” really provides the reader with an alternative for how we might want to look at our worlds, and what we think about them.
As is stated on the book jacket of “Do You Quantum Think” The wisdom put forth in the unparalleled work arrives at a critical juncture at the start of the 21st century. Just as we are witnessing a revolution in technology, society itself is also undergoing a far more profound, collective transformation. This transformation is nothing less than the evolution of consciousness itself, our own minds awareness.
In my dialogue with Dianne we take a deep dive into the difference between ordinary thinking and Quantum Thinking. We explore our habits, beliefs and actions and ways to reprogram our brains into Quantum Thinkers. Dianne’s book is truly transformational and a must read for anyone wanting to excel and embrace the massive changes we are experiencing as a species.
I hope you enjoy this great interview with Diane. If you would like more information about Dianne, her workshops and seminars please click here to be connected to her website. I have also posted a great video about Dianne and Quantum Think below.
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Fran Smith and Sheila Himmel the authors of a new book entitled “Changing The Way We Die-Compassionate End-Of-Life Care And The Hospice Movement.”
In our interview together we explore the Hospice system, and how amazing well it is performing as helping families dealing with a loved one at the end-stages of their life. Through the stories of the caregivers, patients, and researchers both Fran and Sheila examine the remarkable shift in practices around dying and look at the changes ahead if profits replace a dying-well philosophy.
As they discuss with me we are in a society that treasures “youth” above all else. Their book offers the reader realistic advice for dealing with life beyond the vitality of youth.

I think as we all start of the New Year, counting our blessings is an opportunity for us to remember just how much we have to be grateful for.
In my recent interview with author Brenda Knight we discussed her new book entitled “The Grateful Table-Blessings Prayers and Graces for the Daily Meal.” The book has 365 prayers, blessings or precepts to live our life by. We all need reminding, and having a book that we can just pick up and get a dose of inspiration while heightening our awareness of our blessings.
As I write this blog entry on January 7th, 2014 the quote is from Mary Manin Morrissey. ”True abundance is not gathering more things, it’s about touching the place in us that is connected to the divine source of abundance, so that we know what we need in the moment will be provided.”
As we all enter the New Year, “The Grateful Table” is a way for us to all remember our many blessings, and abundance that is all around us.
I hope you enjoy this podcast with Brenda, and that your New Year is filled with gratefulness, joy, abundance and love.
Bruce Poon Tip the author of “Looptail-How One Company Changed The World by Reinventing Business” is one of the most passionate people I have had the pleasure of interviewing.
In his new book ” Looptail” he weaves in his personal story of struggles to success in business, along with much of his personal and business philosophy.
Bruce has successfully grown his company “G Adventures” into one of the most sustainable and socially responsible organizations providing travel adventures for their clients worldwide. He has almost 2,000 employees in more than 100 countries and 30 offices around the world.
Bruce literally reinvented not only the travel business, but every element of how he runs his business and engages with his employees. He eliminated his human resources department, and that is quite an accomplishment in an organization which is pushing 2,000 employees. Bruce built his own philosophy on “the looptail”—a three-pronged full-circle approach that can guide any business to transcend their product and focus on passion and purpose in order to inspire freedom, happiness and community. It’s so named because everything you put into it, you get back in spades contends Bruce, in the form of profitability, growth and employee loyalty.
I encourage you to listen to our interview together and embrace an author that is on the bleeding edge of reinventing how most leaders should consider conducting business. It certainly is not business as usual for Bruce—he is always striving to improve both the employee and client experience.

I recently attended a meeting for a company called Velara Global in Newport Beach, CA. I happen to hear Dr. Dennis Black speak about health, nutrition and the American diet. I was so impressed with his presentation that I invited him to be a guest on Inside Personal Growth.
In my interview with Dr. Black we discuss how our bodies set homeostasis, and ways that we can reset the default both in our brains and through our bodies. We also speak about the excessive ingestion of sugars and carbohydrates that American’s consume, and effective way to reduce and or eliminate our cravings for sugars in our diets.
Dr. Black is a huge advocate of paying attention to our digestive tract—it is the largest organ in our body and when our colon becomes unhealthy through eating a diet rich in fats, meats and refined sugars we need to cleanse the colon and eliminate the undigested foods.
In our interview you will hear us discuss the use of alkaline water as a way to keep our bodies toxic free and as a mechanism to help prevent and reduce the acidity in our bodies through which cancer thrive.

His new book entitled “The Leap Year Project” is the story of his personal journey as a socially responsible entrepreneurs and the journeys of many other young students who took up Victors challenge to join him on this year long journey.
These students choose to take a year out of their lives to ‘experience’ working in different businesses and learn from the experience instead of a textbook. At the culmination of Victor’s journey, he was given the opportunity to speak before a TedX conference in Chicago. His twenty-minute talk absolutely points out the need for more experiential education which gives the learner “real life” experiences not just an MBA but a real life experiences designed to immerse the student in the business challenges.
Through this experience, Victor has gone on to found Experience Institute which is how he is continuing the amazing work that he started.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Michael Cofield the co-author of a book on how to create peace of mind in family businesses called ” The Family Business”.
In my interview with Michael we explore the issues of conflicts in family business, and how the multi-generations of family members have difficulty in effectively expressing their emotions. These challenge create negative pinned up emotions that have a tendency to erode issues of trust and openness of communication in family owned businesses. Keeping peace in a family business requires effective and open communications by all family members. Michaels book, guides the reader through a process that helps family member learn how to deal effectively with their emotions, feeling and and ultimate actions which can have a negative impact on the other family members.

I recently interviewed author David Rohlander about his new book entitled “The CEO Code”. In our dialogue together we discuss the key elements to helping CEO’s sustain success both personally and professionally.
Effective communications takes more than talent—it takes trust, respect, understanding, empathy and resolution states David. A key fundamental element of running a business with alignment, and a focus on the goals is a commitment to doing the job right and teams that know how to communicate effectively.
David’s book takes the reader on a great journey into understanding what it takes to make the personal transformation necessary to develop the skills and emotional intelligence to guide any company to success.
This book is a recommended read for anyone who is in management, or at the head of an organization attempting to create a culture of compassion, commitment and efficiency.
