056 - JIM FORTIN - TRANSFORMATIONAL COACH, PODCAST HOST, OVERALL SENSEI
Hosts Julie Slater & Jason Friday chat with Julie's sensei Jim Fortin. Jim is the host of the The Jim Fortin Podcast. The international leading expert in subconscious self-transformation. For more than 20 years, he trained 1000s of people in sales influence, human effectiveness, and NeuroPersuasion®. Jim created programs such as the Transformational Coaching Program (TCP) and the Be Do Have training series, which have helped thousands of people break free of harmful habits and turn their life around while unlocking a future they previously thought unimaginable. Here's what we dig into with Jim: How he got to where he is…he chose to do what he loves…he gives an example of student and artist Joan Marie (https://www.instagram.com/joanmarieart/?hl=en)…don’t let money be your master – don’t chase money - simply do what you love…money comes from energy and from expansion – when you create growth for people. People search for their dharma…where is it? Jim says it’s right in front of you…stay true what you know is your calling/your mission/your message/your way of life.  Who is to say you don’t have a huge calling if you’d just open up to it? The hardest thing is trying to be someone else for other people...You’ve got to speak your truth. Do you what you love, be who you are…it’s all mental…every fear you have…every fear you have… every block you have…is mental. Stop making everything hard. Face your fears. Stop saying “this is hard.” Remove "hard" from your language.  Just because other people tell you something, doesn’t mean it’s true…especially for you…don’t follow the masses…the only person who is going to save you is YOU… Follow @cuzihavetopodcast on Instagram for all the latest news.  We'd love to hear from you - email us at cuzihavetopodcast@gmail.com.  Find other episodes or leave us a voice message for the show on the anchor website: https://anchor.fm/cuzihaveto.

Since 2013, Nick has been the local host of NPR’s “All Things Considered” on LA public radio station KPCC ... he joined KPCC in 2004 as managing editor of what was an already talented six-reporter staff ... today – the news staff is about five times bigger ... he’s proud of that! Nick started in public radio in 1980 at KSBR in Mission Viejo – first as a freelance reporter and later the host of “All Things Considered” ... when that station collapsed in 1984 – he moved to KLON (now KKJZ) in Long Beach as the host of “All Things Considered” (notice a pattern?) He spent 19 years at KLON/KKJZ – and began teaching in the Cal State Long Beach in 1992 ... he still teaches there. Nick is also a BIG baseball fan – especially the Dodgers! He and his wife Mary have been together since 1981 ... married in 1985 ... daughters Mary Claire and Grace ... they’re ALL big Dodger fans!  He's on Instagram @romanontheradio.  We find out if Nick ever gets nervous on-air, what he missed during the Dodgers World Series in 1988, if he ever gets mad, what does his DJing skill have to do with pot, his favorite food item in Southern California, his favorite band, and what's next for him.   Follow @cuzihavetopodcast on Instagram for all the latest news.  We'd love to hear from you - email us at cuzihavetopodcast@gmail.com.

023 - JULIE & JASON - ONLY CRIME ONLY CRIME ONLY CRIME
Hosts Julie Slater and Jason Friday dip into the true crime genre with real crime going on outside their door in Los Angeles.  Somehow crime circles back to dharma - where we ponder the poisonous effects of comparison, looking deep into yourself to notice things about yourself that you didn't see before, dipping your toes into an interest just to see if it sticks, and how crime apps save the world. Also, how it's best to very specific when manifesting (Julie's looking for a home in Lake Arrowhead, CA), and some deep questions to ask yourself - like: what would you do if you only had six months to live?  Follow @cuzihavetopodcast on Instagram for all the latest news.  We'd love to hear from you - email us at cuzihavetopodcast@gmail.com.
