The topics range from Flow hacking for increased performance to Charity Water and the countless lives a young girl saved just by caring.

He's one of the top producing real estate agents in Pittsburgh...and he's only 25. With his partner, he already has $5M under contract in just the past few months. I knew that he was a work machine, but I had no idea the extent of what gives him the ability to operate at a completely different level. Christian and the Cowden Creed Realty team are completely changing the real estate game in Pittsburgh and it is a-lot of fun to watch. I hope that you enjoy this very interesting and insightful conversation with Christian Wilhelm.

This interview with Andrew Wade BLEW me away.

A quick glance into a section of the book "The Magic of Thinking Big" which covers the three types of people in this world. Those who surrender completely, those who surrender partially, and those who NEVER surrender at all.
"Experts agree that the person you will be one, five, ten, twenty years from now depends almost entirely on your future environment."
We also take a look at the different "buckets" of life and call question to whether or not you should be doing the work that you are doing.

I hope that you enjoy.

This podcast takes a dive into the framework used by Marc Benioff to leave a 7 figure income at Oracle to start Salesforce.com and then grow it to over $10B in revenue per year. Please note, Marc Benioff is not a guest on this show.
In this very raw episode, E.J. shares his very powerful journey from 10 years as a heroin addict to rock bottom to a man that works day by day to give his best to his family. This is one of the most revealing I've ever been as E.J. and I set out to burn the blanket of shame. It takes massive courage to share a story like this, but it's a story that has the power to change or save a persons life. We confront the "BULLY" epidemic and address the simple notion that we all have sh*t, we all have baggage, we all have demons, and we're all trying to figure it out.. You don't need to be an addict to take away some amazing pearls of wisdom that unfold in this conversation. If nothing else, I hope it's just a refreshing take on some really complex topics. Thanks E.J. for all your strength.
Lindsey Hoffman Brooks is one of the most inspiring and intelligent humans I know. She is extremely articulate and her philosophies on life are amazingly insightful. In this episode we dig into the art of showing up as your best, seeking discomfort, and the power of NO. We discuss Orange Theory Fitness, marathon training, parenting, and the importance of, as Lindsey says, "being kind to yourself & being kind to others". I hope that you enjoy this as much as I did!
A short intro into David Goggins, whose "find suffering" mentality is catching on like wildfire. I highlighted David Goggins and Jesse Itzler in my episode entitled The Path of MOST Resistance and this is the promised follow up on the introduction of David's book "Can't Hurt Me" - The most powerful book I have ever read. Please note - David Goggins is not a guest on this episode. This is a cover of him and his book.

I ordered two books back in January and had no idea that they were in any way related. Living with a Seal, 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet by Jesse Itzler and Can't Hurt Me, Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds by David Goggins. These two humans have me doing things I never imagined, and I tried to surface up and tie together content from both books to give you a unique listening experience. I spent weeks reading and then developing the content for the show. The audio is not as great as I would have liked, but I don't have the luxury of fixing it at this point so I hope you can muster through it. Thanks for taking the time to listen.
This is a very special follow up to the Among Heroes podcast featuring audio of Brandon Webb, former Navy Seal and Seal Sniper course instructor, and Mike Bearden from the book Among Heroes written by Brandon Webb.

I hope this episode touches you as much as the content that inspired it has touched me.

I hope that you enjoy and best of luck in 2019 - May you be the best you!
It's not the critic who counts....The credit belongs to the man who actually is in the arena, who strives violently, who errs and comes up short again and again...who if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement, but who if he fails, fails while daring greatly.

This is by far the most vulnerable I have ever been publicly with various incidents that have happened in my life (i.e. multiple trips to jail). I decided that it was time to come out from underneath the curtain of shame and to tell my story - or stories. I hope that this finds and helps the people who need to hear it - and that it doesn't blow up my career.
