E50: How to be More Authentic and Conscious (John Christian)
E50: How to be More Authentic and Conscious (John Christian)  No matter how hard you push and which strategies you put to work. If it is not authentic, you only create more struggle for yourself and the people around you. Authenticity is probably one of the least talked about success factors in life. Yet in life and in business it is everything. Authenticity breeds trust. When there’s trust, business moves 10x faster than when there’s no trust. John Christian (now 71) has been a famous popstar. Some of his friends are mega rich and mega famous… yet often something is still lacking in their lives. John has several masters who mentor him on how to develop his intuitive intelligence. This has set him off on a path of true authenticity and made him one of the calmest and wisest people I has the privilege of being around. I feel blessed to call John my friend and consciousness mentor. He is one of those rare diamonds who does not show off his wisdom, and instead patiently waits until the student appears and asks him the right questions. After spending 2 transformational days together at my home, I felt compelled to share John’s wisdom with you as well… so I asked to interview him. Please open your mind and be prepared to question everything you think you know… because with this conversation John takes you on a journey that goes beyond the realm of the mind. Enjoy!

E38: The Power of Peer Influence (Leo Bottary)
E38: The Power of Peer Influence (Leo Bottary) In our intention to live and work stress-free, we are continuously experimenting with “shortcuts” that help us get more done with less effort. With today’s interview, Leo Bottary points our attention to a resource we all have, but typically we use it way too little: The enormous amount of knowledge, experience and willingness to help which rests inside the minds of our friends and peers. Leo Bottary is a keynote speaker, author, workshop facilitator, adjunct professor, and thought leader on the topic of peer advantage. During his tenure at Vistage Worldwide, Leo directed a thought leadership initiative on the power of peers in business, which resulted in a book he co-authored with Leon Shapiro titled:  The Power of Peers: How the Company You Keep Drives Leadership, Growth & Success. “A problem cannot be solved from the level of awareness which created it.” (Albert Einstein) If we accept this statement as truth, it opens our minds to the idea that our peers can give us tremendous value. When we have a seemingly huge challenge in front of us, one of our friends may hold the perfect answer. Of course there is a “catch”… it requires us to be vulnerable, humble and dare to askthe right questions. What would it mean for your life if you would ask for help sooner? The good news is… anyone can do this! Hence Leo Bottary’s new book (just released) is titled: What Anyone Can Do.  Find out how you can start leveraging the power of peers. Enjoy our fun and inspirational conversation with Leo Bottary! Click here to watch the interview on Youtube Interesting stories and strategies that came up in our conversation: - Why most adults find it difficult to ask for help - How to recognize talent inside your organization - Why you (yes, you!) were Time Magazine person of the year - How do you make new knowledge “stick” (instead of forgetting it the next day) - How the world is shifting from an individualistic to a more collectivist attitude - Why Leo believes the word “expert” can be banned - Why humility is a powerful trait for leaders - What is the weirdest animal Leo ever sat on? 😊 TIP: How to benefit most: 1) which insight resonated with you? 2) how can you apply it in your own unique personal situation? 3) take action today… view it as a small experiment, 4) reflect and see how it helped you be stress-free and achieve more.

E33: How to manage your financial future – the basics of economics (Michael Goodwin)
E33: How to manage your financial future – the basics of economics (Michael Goodwin) We see stress in every office. People are putting their lives on hold, “because it is so busy”. This is painful enough as it is… but what if a sudden crash in the stock markets happens and your hard-earned savings suddenly disappear? We want to earn more work less and GROW those earnings, so we asked economics expert Michael Goodwin. Michael is a freelance writer, a true bookworm who loves comics and history. In his initial reading, Mike thought he caught glimpses of a story nobody seemed to be telling. He brought a stack of books to a small town in India, settled in, and started reading, researching, and writing. The result was Economix, a comic book explaining the economy through the lens of history. Mike has spent several years in China as well as India. Today, like many freelance writers, he lives in New York City with a cat. Why listen to this episode? The leaders of the world have a bias towards telling us that everything is fine. How can you know whether your hard-earned savings are actually fine? What can you do to keep your savings safe? What should you understand about the economy and which actions can you take to be prepared for any scenario? Is there a stress-free way to manage your personal finances? Michael Goodwin gives us a simple and understandable lesson in economics. Click here to watch the interview on Youtube  Interesting stories and strategies that came up in our conversation: - Why is it important to understand “economics”? - Is there a stress-free way to save our money or invest? (Or should we just seize the day and create experiences right now)? - Will we still have banks in 20 years? - What does it take to write a comic book? - To bitcoin or not to bitcoin? - Why is economics so boring topic in school? - What to do when a cab driver gives you a stock tip? TIP: How to benefit most: 1) have you been managing your financial future appropriately, or do you want to make a change? 2) write any desired changes on your to-do list (so you can take care of it in time!)

Most people strive their entire lifetime towards a life like Robert used to have. He had it all… the money, the cars, the business. Until everything changed. Robert’s story is one of achievement, ups and downs, purpose and passion. Robert Janetzko started his first sales company at age 19, in the indoor air cleaner niche. He gathered a sales force of over 300 (!!) people and made millions. But then he crashed and burned.

His latest startup opens the doors to a paradigm of housing. Today his mission is to help people all over the world build a healthier and more sustainable “indoor ecosystem”.

How much thought do we really put into making our environment supportive to our physical health? Experts in non-toxic buildings, futurist entrepreneurs and anyone who wants to spread the word can request to be on "The Next 100 Years" podcast, which is hosted by Robert.

Xiu Lei is very inspirational and at the same time one of the most modest and humble people we know.  She lives in love and simplicity, having everything her heart desires. Years ago she made a huge change – she stopped her business, sold pretty much everything she had and became a nomad living from 1 suitcase, travelling the world.  How is it to live a life not knowing where you will be in couple of months? How does yoga help our modern society to deal with time pressure?
