Author Victor Saad is one of the most dynamic and interesting young men I have ever had the pleasure of interviewing. 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 hope you will pick up a copy of his book, I know that you will not only learn about the wonderful journey that Victor took on his year long experience, but you will learn what is was like from many others who took the challenge with Victor.
Please watch the TedX talk that Victor gave below, I think you will walk away rethinking how we educate young impressionable minds.

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.

Manifesting is a topic which I believe Robert MacPhee the author of “Manifesting for Non Gurus” had done a wonderful job of providing the reader with insights, guidance and tip for manifesting. His wisdom on the topic comes from years of facilitating workshops as a master trainer for Jack Canfield.
In my interview with Robert we discuss his simple (5) step approach 1) Know Who You Are 2) What Are You Intending to Attract 3) How Will You Feel 4) Letting Go of Attachments 5) Inspired Action. Very simply our results come from our actions, and “Manifesting for Non Gurus provides the reader with a simple step by step approach to manifesting.
Robert also has created a “Daily Journal” which he believes is imperative in the change process. On a daily basis is allows the reader to look at and record “Who Am I”, “What Am I Intending to Attract.” “How Will I Feel”, and “Letting Go of Attachments”.
I hope you enjoy my interview with author Robert MacPhee a master at teaching people how to manifest. You can also go to Roberts website by clicking here or watch the video below to see Robert teaching one of his courses at Google.
Dr. Kelly Traver is the author of a new book entitled “The Healthiest You-Take Charge of Your Brain to Take Charge of You Life”. I recently interviewed her about her book and her 12-week program.
In our interview together we discuss what she refers to as one of the most important elements in changing your health, and that is to understand how your your brain works.
Her approach is certainly not the typical diet, exercise approach and don’t misunderstand it is more than just learning to understand how your brain works, but this is extremely important element.
Kelly states in the book that our brains are capable of substantial change. At any age you can learn, you can grow, and you can improve your skills for living a healthier and happier life.
“Your hypothalamus, is the center of your brain, it is the master controller of homeostasis—it controls things like hunger, thirst, and body temperature. Your brain will automatically resist a sudden change in your behavior or routine. In Kelly’s book she shows you how to make those changes, and more importantly she teaches you how your brain functions.
I hope you enjoy this very informative interview with Dr. Kelly Traver.

I recently has the opportunity to interview Janet Larsen the Director or Research about Lester Brown’s new book entitled “Full Planet, Empty Plates-The New Geopolitics of Food Scarcity.”
This book is a real eye opener, doing an incredible job of informing the reader about our food scarcity problems world wide. There are many issues contributing to the challenges we are faced with, Janet and I talk about our growing water, soil and rising temperatures just to mention a few of the growing challenges farmers are facing in keeping our planets population fed.
Just keep in mind that there will be 219,000 people at the dinner table tonight who were not there last night, and some 3 billion increasing affluent people are moving up the food chain, consuming grain-intensive livestock and poultry products helping increasing the demands on our water for production of these livestocks.
The question is that could food become the weak link as it was for so many other civilization before us—only time will tell but we all can do something about the growing problem by changing our diets to more of a plant based diet and reducing our carbon footprint.
I hope you enjoy this interview with Janet Larsen, and for more information about the book and the Earth Policy Institute just click on this link.
