We all tap into our intuition from time to time, and wonderfully when we do it as if our lives are altered in mysterious and beautiful ways. Everyone reading this has dialed into and heard the inner voice, the voice of wisdom guiding us— if only we will listen.
“Intuition is a survival tool” write author Simone Wright the author of ” First Intelligence: Using the Science and Spirit of Intuition.” In my interview with her we discuss not only how she has been able to fine tune her own intuition, but how she works with others around the world and coaches them to more powerfully access this great power.
One of the misconceptions about intuition is that it is a supernatural power or paranormal phenomenon. Intuition is a power that we are all born with but we are not taught how to use it. It appears in different ways some people have clairaudience or clear hearing, others are gifted with clairvoyance or clear seeing, and other are clairsentience or clear feeling. No matter what your “intuitive power” it is available to access as a guidance system, states author Simone Wright ” you just need to be open to receiving ideas, and inspirations”.
I hope you enjoy Simone Wright speaking with me about her new book “First Intelligence”. If you listen carefully you will better understand how to access the power of your intuition.

There is most likely not a person on the planet that has not run into more that one obstacle during their lifetime. The bigger question that we need to ask ourselves, is just how do we perceived the obstacles that we have encountered. Do we look upon them as negative or are we able to reframe our reference to them as learning lessons?
In my recent interview with Ryan Holiday about his new book entitled ” The Obstacle Is The Way” we discuss his journey he takes his readers through history telling stories about some of the greatest people in history and the immense obstacles many of them encountered, but more importantly the personal power the all obtained by shifting their perspective about the obstacles they encountered and seeing them as learning lessons.
In story after story Ryan shows that when failure comes— Ask what went wrong? What can be improved? What am I missing. He states that entrepreneurs are: 1) Never wedded to a position 2) Never afraid to lose a little of their investment 3) Never bitter or embarrassed 4) Never out of the game long.
If you are currently facing a life challenge around growing your business, money or personal affairs then I highly recommend reading Ryan’s new book. It is inspirational and will provide you with a completely new perspective and reframe of your perceived obstacles.
If you want to learn more just watch the great video below or click here to go to Ryan’s website and or Facebook page for the book.
Enjoy this great interview with Ryan Holiday author or “The Obstacle is the Way”.
Personal Growth can get overdone, and many of the books begin to sound the same. Similar advice, tips, to-do’s which unless applied do absolutely nothing to forward our personal transformation— whatever that is suppose to mean.
In my recent interview with Tom Oliver, about his book entitled ” Nothing is Impossible” Tom does not follow suit like the thousands of other “personal growth/mastery” books. Tom’s book is engaging, loaded with great stories, pointers and exercises that are quite valuable. Tom speaks to the reader, not at them and is gentle in his advice and guidance to attain personal mastery—should that be your desire.
Our interview covers several topics, but a couple of them I believe are so important are “Embracing Yourself” and “Overcoming Self-Doubt”. Please listen carefully to Tom words so you can understand the importance of learning how to understand yourself and focus on your strengths, not improving your weaknesses.
Also the power of removing any self-doubt that you may have allowed to creep into your subconscious. It can be a real challenge to lift yourself up, and start believing in yourself again. Defeat and failure, are just signs you are on the right path. Challenges will always be part of life, but remembering who we are and why we are here on this planet is the power to move us through all of our challenges.
I hope you enjoy this great interview with Tom Oliver about “Nothing is Impossible”. Please click here to be directed to Tom’s website.
Let’s face it, relationships can be challenging. They are a compromise and a collaboration—especially relationships with our significant others. The work we invest into our relationships can pay off in spades relative to our own happiness and the happiness of our partners.

Chris Grusso is an articulate and engaging author with an important message about not only his own spiritual awakening, but how he sees the world embracing “or not” religion and spirituality.
In my interview with Chris about his new book entitled “Indie Spiritualists” we discuss up front and personal about his drug addiction and the tough times he has endured, but emerging from the ashes the wiser, and more at peace with himself.
If all of us were to take the deep introspective look at our lives I am sure we would find people and circumstances that give us indigestion and we would like to change. Chris takes a brutally honest and radically unconventional approach in ” Indie Spiritualists”, but encourages readers to accept themselves as they are, in all their humanity and imperfect perfection.
Chris is a musician, writer, author, blogger and has a refreshing message that we all need to hear and embrace.
I hope you enjoy our interview together, and should you want to learn more please click here to be directed to Chris’s website or click Facebook to link with him there as well.
I don’t have to tell my audience about the number of books and interview I have completed with personal growth, mastery and psychology authors.
I was recently sent a book called “Smart Change” by Art Markman professor of Psychology at the University of Texas which I believe could be a game changer.
We have all read books on how to change, as a matter of fact that is what most of the personal growth books are attempting to get us to do. “Smart Change” is attempting to do the same, but in a way that I believe can and will work if people apply the simple strategies that Art talks about in our interview.
I am not going to speak about the 5 effective tools in this blog entry, but you can go to his website to learn more by clicking here. You can also download his “Smart Change” Journal, simple but masterfully thought out.
The most important tool Art refers in his book he refers to as “Tame the Go System.” This is where you identify the triggers of habits, replace old behaviors with new ones, and generate specific plans to deal with the obstacles. This single idea worth the price of the book.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with a very knowledgeable and thought provoking author—Art Markman.
Alan C. Fox is the author of a new book entitled ” People Tools: 54 Strategies for Building Relationships, Creating Joy, and Embracing Prosperity.”
What I found so interesting about my interview with Alan was is intuitive grasp of just how to treat people no matter what circumstance he found himself in. Now that was not always the case for Alan for his personality used to be somewhat introverted, but he learned how to utilize the skills he writes about in his book and apply them quite masterfully.
“Successful relationships are the bedrock of successful careers, families and friendships, which in turn are the hallmarks of a successful and enjoyable life,” state Alan. “The more tools you have, and the better you understand the tools you use, the more quickly and effectively you will achieve success.”
I encourage you to listen to the words of wisdom from this author as we discuss his life, the people tools and the many lesson along his life path that molded and developed Alan Fox into the amazing man and author he exemplifies.

I recently had the honor of interviewing my good friend Steven Kotler and an amazing resource on learning how to “hack flow”. Steven has just released a new book, hot off the press called ” The Rise of Superman”.
I bet many of you are wondering what “hacking flow” is all about. Steven has spent much of his adult career learning and personally experimenting with this concept, and decoding the science of ultimate human performance. So out with the personal growth stuff, because what Steven reveals in our interview is so powerful that it will transform your life physically, mentally and emotionally.
“Flow naturally catapults you to a level you’re not naturally in,” explained Harvard Medical School psychiatrist Ned Hallowell in an interview for the book. “Flow naturally transforms a weakling into a muscleman, a sketcher into and artists, and a dancer into a ballerina, a plodder into a sprinter, and ordinary person into someone extraordinary. Everything you do, you do better in flow…Flow is the doorway to the ‘more’ most of us seek.”
I encourage you to listen to the mind blowing podcast with an amazing researcher and author Steven Kotler.
If you would like to learn more about Steven’s research and work you can click here to be directed to his blog, or click here to go the the Flow Genome website, or here to be directed to the book landing page.
If you are interested in reading a book that will provide new perspective on the subject of leadership, then I highly recommend reading ” Grounded-How Leaders Stay Rooted In An Uncertain World” by author Bob Rosen.
In my interview with Bob we discuss the challenges that leaders are faced with in our ever changing landscape and volatile world. As leaders are confronted with disruptive change and worldwide economic turbulence they need to learn how to adapt and change their thinking and behaviors to transform their worldview and perspective.
Grounded presents to the reader a new approach that speaks to our better self and help leaders become more self-aware. Bob presents the “Healthy Leader” model designed to expose leaders to six personal dimensions that fuel and refuel our world leaders, physical, emotional, intellectual, social, vocational and spiritual health.
Everyone is a leader in their own capacity, therefore the techniques and tools provided in Bob’s book are tools to enlighten and enrich the leadership experience. I not only recommend reading “Grounded” but that you visit the book website and the Facebook page for “Grounded.
Enjoy this wonderful interview with Bob Rosen author of “Grounded”.
