Once in awhile you run across a book that can change the course of your life, and “Start Here” certainly has the ability to do just that.
I recently had the honor of interviewing Nate Klemp, PhD the co-author of a new book entitled “Start Here” and we had a lively discussion about the book and the practices that are incorporated into the book and hopefully become part of the readers daily routine.
We start our interview off by discussing the “happiness set point”, yes we all have one and we have the opportunity to re-set our happiness set point as Nate explains in our interview. The key to resetting our set point is understanding the three set point forces. The first one is “judgement” and is the mind’s tendency to divide the inner and outer world into categories–good/bad, right/wrong, like/dislike. The second one is “attachement“. Is it the mind’s tendency to approach or cling to pleasurable thoughts, beliefs, or sensations. And the third is “resistance“. This is the mind’s tendency to fight or flee from painful sensations, experiences, or situations. These three set point forces can certainly be monitored, managed and can have an amazing effect on your level of happiness.
The foundation of well being revolves around three stages, train, be and do. These three stages make up the foundation of the Life-XT program that is outlined in “Start Here”. The training stage consists of meditation, movement and inquiry. The “Be” stage consists of presence, gratitude and compassion; and the “Do” stage consists of engagement, relationship, and contribution. While these words don’t do justice to explaining the entire Life-XT program it does provide you with the elements included in the program.

I hope you enjoy this great interview with author Nate Klemp, PhD about his new book “Start Here-A Groundbreaking Science-Based Program for Emotional Fitness.”
Most of us are aware that branding ourselves or our companies can be a challenging task. It is as if there is a magic formula that when you have the correct ingredients your company can blast off into the stratosphere where customers are clamoring to subscribe to your service or purchase your products.
David Tyreman has authored a book entitled “World Famous-How to Create a Kick-Ass Brand. David has worked with some of the biggest companies like Banana Republic, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Nike and many others. In my interview with David we explore the components that are required to create a kick-ass brand. David explains there are five of them and they are: 1) Dare 2) Learn Why People Buy 3) A Defined Differentiation 4) Adding Value 5) Ready, Set Engage. These steps make up the roadmap for someone wanting to develop their brand.
We also discuss the power of a super niche, defining what you do best and not spreading yourself too thin that your customers are confused by your offering or service. You also need to be concerned and do you research on the demographics and psychographics of your target customer. Remember not everyone is your customer, so develop a plan and research your customer profile so you know what makes them tick.
David is a master at helping people brand themselves or their company. His book “World Famous-How to Create a Kick-Ass Brand” is loaded with stories, examples and advice that can assist both the newbie or the experienced marketer.

Donald presents mindfulness practices that are designed to allow us to clear the clutter by managing our brains which he asserts everyone of us can do. He calls it a mindful lifestyle reboot which is centered around six clutter clearing skills which are assessed through the acronym PAIR UP: Present Moment Participation, Attuned Acceptance, Intentionality, Reflection, Understanding of Suffering and Purposeful Partnership.
Donald show the readers throughout the book how to use these skills to become more centered and to live in the moment.

This story is about one man’s quest to understand the life hereafter as a result of his son Jordan being murdered, and his connection to Jordan through Induced After Death Communications. Author Matthew McKay tells about a heart wrenching story, but one with a pleasant insight and understanding about what happens to us when we die in his new book “Seeking Jordan“.
As Matt states ” Pain is the path to truth. It refracts light to reveal things not otherwise seen. In the heart of the pain is a moment when the universe, and our place within it , become more visible. Nothing is truly lost. Nothing. The soul is constant, never broken. Pain seems to damage us, but the damage is an illusion. The idea of safety or protection is an illusion. It is all safe—everything we love.
Matt has had more than 100 conversations with his son Jordan, all of which have been revealing about the life after death. He asked Jordan what can be gained and lost? His immediate answer was that nothing is lost by opening to the circle with the dead. Nothing. Communicating with the dead preserves a connection across the life and death divide, by learning things that only the dead can know.
If you are at all curious about life after death and communicating with the dead, then I would recommend that you listen too and get a copy of “Seeking Jordan–How I Learned the Truth about Death and the Invisible Universe.” If you want to learn more about Matthew please click here to be directed to his website. I trust you will be informed and intrigued by our interview together.
