Christine Gabriel: Social Justice Through Finance
Christine Gabriel has an amazing story and a heart of gold. While attending college, she noticed she had a strong interest in social justice and fighting inequality. She felt the best course of action was to go into politics and work in the government. However, she soon realized that everything in the world is tied to money and she shifted her focus accordingly. She then decided to begin a career providing financial coaching to under-served communities. In fact, her life mission is to educate and uplift marginalized groups at the grassroots level ("boots on the ground"). These groups tend be ignored by most financial advisors and are untapped markets. You can feel the passion in her voice, it's incredible. You will be moved 100%. Unlike many who go into finance, her motives are truly altruistic and benevolent. She is not motivated by greed in the slightest. In fact, she turns down business if she can't properly educate the client. This is the first time I have ever heard of someone in finance turning down business.

Danny Ghitis: Another Coach Leaves The Rat Race
After being a New York Times photographer for 7 years, he left it all to be a life coach. People thought he was crazy but I feel he's actually brave (and sane) for following his true calling. Danny brings a great deal of intelligence, honesty, and research to the coaching industry. His approach to coaching is different from that other coaches. Danny feels coaching provides accountability  for clients in ways that a book, blog or article cannot. As a NYU student, he coached a colleague into immediately living his life on his terms and not others. That experience spurred him on in his journey as he saw the positive, powerful impact coaching can have on one's life. He deftly describes how broad, effective and fast growing the industry is. However, he warns that due to limited regulation and low barriers to entry, the industry attracts a great deal of charlatans and hacks who know how to market and charge high prices. Danny offers great advice on how to find the right coach and avoid being scammed. Critical advice for anyone who is interested in seeking a coach. Danny also also expresses some criticism for the "self-help" book/guru industry. You will find Danny's views on competition, courage, locus of control, happiness, etc. to be enlightening. Danny's book/author recommendations should not be missed as well. I learned a ton of new information from Danny in this interview. You will to. Please reach Danny at (Just google Full Frame Coaching)

Jonathan Mercado: Spiritual Coach Escapes The Rat Race
What would you call someone who leaves a secure, comfortable, promising, well paying career at  one of the 4 major accounting firms to set out on his own to be a spiritual and professional coach? Some would call him crazy, but I would say he is brave (and sane) for following his heart and mind. He did what many are too fearful to do. Since the time he took a sociology class as a student in Penn State, Jonathan has been studying personal growth, conscious creation, and art. He has even written a book, "What is the meaning of life?" Jonathan has been on an incredible journey that started by joining Bob Proctor & company and has taken him from Japan to Mexico. You will be immensely inspired by his life story.  Jonathan and I engage in a conversation that is deep and profound. He drops a great deal of knowledge when it comes to the areas of networking, self-discovery, listening, trusting yourself, thinking positively, balance, etc. As a coach, he sees himself as a "mirror" for his clients. He beautifully defends his industry from critics who may not fully understand the value that coaching provides, which he sees as an art as well as a profession. He goes over the process of how one should properly find a coach and how to be one if you wish. Jonathan knows the importance of maintaining key habits like meditation, visualization and affirmations. These habits have helped him in his own life tremendously. The books he recommends every human read is something you can't miss. There is a lot to learn and digest in this episode. You can reach Jonathan at

The advice and knowledge she drops in this episode is beyond vital but surprisingly new as well. Everyone can benefit from listening to her. She skillfully explains the importance of insurance, saving for your retirement, writing out a will, having health insurance, saving money, etc. and why people don't get around to doing this indispensable activity. You can feel the passion in Lacey's voice, particularly when she is talking about her firm Empire Wealth Strategies. She knows finance and loves talking about it. As a result, this episode is the longest of the bunch so far. Great record to have.  As a woman, she knows how to succeed in an industry that is dominated by men. She brings a softer, ethical approach to the world of financial services. She is looking to transform the image and reputation of the industry which is often perceived as high testosterone, aggressive,  criminal and dishonest. (Think "Wolf of Wall Street.") The stories she describes are moving, gut-wrenching, entertaining, and educational. Lacey knows the importance of networking and referrals as well. She goes into detail about the best strategies for building a rock solid network and arriving at a point where one relies mostly if not solely on referrals. The information provided by her is truly eye opening for anyone who sells anything, which is all of us. It's so important to have Lacey in your network.

Garrett Halsell: A Beautiful (Business) Mind
What can I say about Garrett Halsell? When it comes to business/marketing, he is one of the smartest, creative people I know. I learn more in one minute listening to him than most other people. He is someone who is on the cutting edge of what businesses need to stay in business. He knows more about business than business school professors because he is in the "trenches" everyday listening to business owners and helping to diagnose their problems. He works with businesses in all industries. If you own or know someone who owns a small business, he is the man to meet. He is one of the founding members of Vox Direct. I consider Garrett a "master networker" as well. He explains how most people's networking skills are subpar and how they can improve them.  Garrett's story starts when he leaves Texas to come to New York where he knew no one but he hit the ground running. He considers himself "selfishly selfless" and that is what drives him. Listening to his insights is quite a treat. You are in for an entertaining, as well as educational interview. I consider him a major "center of influence." You definitely want him in your network.  You can reach Garrett at Text garrett  at (844) 267 6492

Za knows many of the secrets of success and she is gracious enough to share it with us. We are blessed. Za goes into detail about how she started her incredible journey. As a young child, she loved beautifying her friends by being their barber. So she decided to parlay her talents into a career in the beauty industry.

Get inspired by her ability to overcome adversity like a divorce, pandemic, and sexism. Za goes in to detail about the sexism and harassment  she faces as a female entrepreneur from chauvinists who waste her time. She found a simple "solution" to that issue. We were lucky that she decided to regale us with some of the funniest and most moving stories from her career.  One story in particular leaves us both laughing hard. She educates us about the untapped, recession-proof gold mine that is the make up industry and health and wellness. Her most important lessons are what it takes to succeed.

The Deep Voice Man: Introduction Of Host
My name is Luke Jean-Louis. I was born and raised in New York. People have always told me that my voice is deep, rich and amazing. People would tell me on the phone and in person that it was pleasant to listen to me. They told me I needed to find a way to parlay my voice into a lucrative career. Folks suggested I seek a career on radio, do voice-overs, get into broadcasting, etc. I never followed through with that until I started hosting my very own radio show (my podcast of course). This is only just the beginning. I am finally sharing my gift with the world by putting my voice to good use. I also love helping and educating people in any way that I can. So I decided to do this show to help guests promote themselves and for listeners to educate themselves as well. I know you will find the show to be entertaining as well. If you wish to be a guest on the show, please reach out to me. Thank you for listening!
