It is not often that one gets hit in succession with nearly two fatal strokes, but that is what happened to Mark Moore my guest on this podcast, and the author of a new book entitled “A Stroke of Faith-A Stroke Survivor’s Story Of A Second Chance At Living A Life of Significance”.
Mark Moore was a successful CEO of a thriving company that he and his partner founded and was also in apparent great health when his strokes occurred. Mark’s story is about his triumph over adversity that this event caused in his life. One day he was fine, then the next day he was lying in a hospital bed in a coma. He had to learn how to walk, tie his shoes, sign a check and all the normal activities that we all take for granted.
We speak in the podcast about the strains an illness like this takes on the family, but also how this event brought Mark and his wife and children closer together. Mark’s family and the strength they provided him were the single most compelling reasons for his survival and willingness to fight for his life.
Since the stroke, Mark has made almost a complete recovery and has run a marathon on the one-year anniversary of his stroke. Through his life will never return to his pre-stroke normality, he has now chosen to dedicate his life to philanthropy, his family, educating others about stroke awareness and prevention, and inspiring those who have suffered similar events.
I hope you enjoy this inspiring interview with Mark Moore the author of ” A Stroke of Faith“. You can learn more about Mark by visiting his website by clicking here.
In my recent interview with author Joanna Garzilli we speak about her new book “Big Miracles-The 11 Spiritual Rules for Ultimate Success“. During our interview together we get to discuss the 11 Spiritual Rules starting with ” Aligning with Spirit”.
In my dialogue with Joanna she tells some of her personal story in finding these laws and the personal pain she experienced, but the first law is about being a spiritual being, and knowing that you don’t have to imitate someone else, all you need to do is learn how to be yourself. While this might sound easy, so many people don’t have the confidence and the self-esteem and they are constantly trying to be someone they believe is better than them—well no one is better than you finding your authentic self and letting the world know.
Joanna’s second law is “Being a Spiritual Vehicle”. She state that in choosing a spiritual path you are choosing a path of continuous personal growth and actively seeking your spiritual transformation. Your main purpose is to expand your capacity to both give and receive love. I hope you will read her new book “Big Miracles” to learn about the other 9 laws to assist you in transforming your life to that of a spiritual being.
Throughout “Big Miracles” author Joanna Garzilli is providing practical advice and techniques to awaken your spiritual being, and in so doing achieving the ultimate success in life you desire.
I hope you enjoy this great interview with Joanna, for more information about the book please click here to be directed to her website, or click here to join her on Facebook.
I have conducted several interviews with Don Green the executive director of the Napoleon Hill foundation. Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with Don about “Napoleon Hill’s Daily Journal for Everyday Men“. Just so the women are aware this journal comes in a version for women as well.
I know that journaling can be challenging to sustain. We frequently get off to a good start but lack the motivation to continue the process. The Napoleon Hill Journal is perfect for keeping the journaler engaged. The journal is like a goal planner to keep you on track. What I love about it is that it starts off with the most important element of our personal growth, and that is our definiteness of purpose, and follows a very logical sequence process throughout the year with 12 separate topics for each month of the year.
This journal has an accompanying inspiration book entitled “Napoleon Hill’s Daily Inspiration for Everyday Man” This book takes you through the 17 success principles and is a wonderful compliment to the journal. I highly recommend obtaining both the journal and the inspirational guide.
If you want to learn more about Don Green and the Napoleon Hill foundation please click here to be directed to the foundation’s website. There you can explore the many offerings by the foundation including online classes, books, audio recording and books.
I hope you enjoy this great interview with Don Green the executive director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation.
I have to admit the deepest interviews I have ever had have been with author Mark Nepo. In my recent interview with him about his new book ” The One Life We’re Given” we explored together how to reach and listen to our soul’s calling.
As Mark states “Throwing ourselves wholeheartedly into what we’re given brings us alive”–whether we must deal with suffering, pain, fear and loss or surprise, beauty, love and wonder. Each of these moments is an opportunity to listen more deeply to our feelings to deepen our connections with others, and to sense the sacred nature of ordinary things”. On this journey we will affirm how precious this one life is and enter the chance we have to be fully alive and to be of us to each other and the world. We will uncover, how by loving what’s before us and concentrating on what’s particular and personal, we can begin to make sense of our experience. We will learn how, over time, the twin callings of enlivening our soul and enlivening the world become one, and how our sincerity and labor help us survive and thrive.
If you are questioning certain life events from relationships to work, then you will want to read “The Life We’re Given“. This book is a practical way to reevaluate your life, and find ways to change it for the better. It will make you think deeply, reflect and listen to your soul. If you are longing to make your life better, the answers are right in front of you—the secret is to listen and connect to your soul then take action on your new found insights.

Hang on to your seats listeners, Vivienne Harr the Child Slavery Activists, Author, Philanthropists and Organic Product Creator is only 11 years old.
This new child’s book “Make A Stand” encourages kids to make a difference just like Vivienne did. “Anyone can do it” is her motto and believe me she is changing the awareness about child slavery.
Her story is truly phenomenal, from seeing a picture in an art gallery depicting two boys in child slavery carrying heavy slate stones on their backs, to raising over $100,000 to help end child slavery.
Her lemonade business has now turned into a full fledged operation called “Make A Stand” which bottles and ships lemonade to major grocery stores across the country. She was also approached by a movie producer and they made a movie about child slavery with Vivienne being highlighted in the movie. The title of the movie obviously is “Make A Stand”
I hope you enjoy my interview with her father Eric Harr, Vivienne really has amazing parents, backing her all the way. If you want to learn more please click here to be directed to the Make A Stand website, or click here to go to their Facebook page.
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 have had the pleasure of interviewing Arjuna Ardagh for a previous book he wrote entitled the “Translucent Revolution”. The Translucent Revolution is wonderful, and in my estimation a must read for anyone on the journey to awakening.
Arjuna life’s work is about coaching and helping people to awaken to the wonder of life. His new book entitled “The Last Laugh” is a novel that is brilliantly written about Matt Thompson and Joe Murphy the ex-Merchant Marine who is Matt’s mentor, guide and savior.
Arjuna takes you on an amazing journey with these characters, and in the process you explore the highs and lows and ups and downs of life, while personally relating and learning.
I know you will love this insightful and funny story. You will probably laugh and cry while learning from the life lessons weaved into the plot.
