“Never lose a holy curiosity” - Albert Einstein

There’s no denial we are curious creatures, but it’s unfortunate how often we tend to ignore our curious tendencies.

I truly believe that curiosity is what causes creation and creation is what makes the world go ‘round. Having a “safe place” or a network of people to be able to explore your curiosities, judgment free, is vital.

“I believe that curiosities are our soul telling us which place to go to next.”

Whether it is a comfort zone, or a completely new area, tapping into your inner curious feelings can lead you to indescribable adventures and achievements.

“If there is something burning in your soul, keep that question if your forefront.”

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Curiosity
  • Growing
  • Creativity
  • Desires

Jen Sincero is a New York Times bestselling author, success coach, and motivational cattle prod who has helped countless people transform their personal and professional lives via her seminars, public appearances, newsletters, products and books. In 2011, she gave up her home in California to travel the planet indefinitely, encouraging as many people as possible “to live lives of unbridled awesomeness.” She is currently staying in New Mexico. Starting out as a freelance writer and “broke as joke” as she called it, she knew there was so much more for her to be doing on this earth and so much more money to be making, on this earth.

“After decades of struggling and getting jobs here and there, I finally focused my energy on making money because it just wasn't happening for me.”

It’s never too late to learn lessons, and Jen finally learned that actually focusing on a goal and taking the necessary steps towards it, is the only way to achieve higher accomplishments. Sitting around and wishing for it to fall from the sky, will never happen (although that would be pretty cool.) Deciding to dive into self-help, money making and coaching books, she devoted her time to understanding how it all can work for you, as long as your energy and effort is 100%.

“That's how my book You Are a Badass happened. It was first me getting my act together and then teaching people how to get their act together.”

She teaches us how to put off the opinions and judgements of others, no matter what. Getting uncomfortable with your situation is the #1 way to make things happen!

“If you aren't ready to get uncomfortable, it’s not going to happen.”

Our belief system can by our best friend or our worst night-mare. What we believe, is how we feel and how we feel then translates to how we act.

“I had to change my thoughts about money and greed. I also how to change my beliefs about what people my think of me, especially my family.”

Unsure on where to even begin, to find your inner badass? Becoming really clear with yourself and your personal goals is the easiest yet BIGGEST first step you can take. It’s about the willingness to be able to step away from the old “norm,” to create yourself one BADASS life.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Focusing energy
  • Determination
  • Self help
  • Coaching
  • Feeling uncomfortable
  • The Truths about money

“Curve balls are just the universe saying; 'How bad do you really want it?!'

Madly in love with his wife. Natural philosopher. Producer of his own life.

These three things pretty much sum up Zach Slobin and his insatiable desire to knock, question the everyday rules and then bend life to create massive freedom, joy, and abundance.

After weathering life’s natural ups and downs, being lost in “finding his purpose,” and navigating through the inevitable entrepreneurial storms, he can tell you the stories of hitting several physical, emotional, spiritual and financial bottoms.

He’s the athlete who almost went pro, but severe injuries kept him from his dream.

He’s the top guy who walked away from a good corporate job (and the money), because it was suffocating.

He’s the man who wouldn’t settle until he found his soulmate. And he’s the entrepreneur who was so committed to excellence, he created financial freedom at just 34 years of age.

Grateful for the lessons all the losses have taught him, one thing is for sure–he can show you how to play the game of life and win it.

As a Master Speaker, Trainer and Coach, Zach’s greatest thrill in life is showing people how to go from where they are to where they deserve to be by removing the BS lies they tell themselves, so they can be, do and have ANYTHING they desire. Flashing back with Zach to the ripe old age of 8, it was even then that he knew he’d one day become an entrepreneur.

“All the kids were asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. Most said doctors, astronauts or lawyers, but when it was my turn, I said I don't know what I want to be, but I know I want to do a lot of things at once.

A year later, at only 9 years of age, Zach lost his best friend to Leukemia. It was during this tragic event, that had little Zach pondering why the world worked as it did.

“I always knew there were greater truths, than what I was being offered.”

During his high school days, Zach began to realize that maybe not everyone was as authentic as he wished, but even so, he decided from that point on he would be nothing less than 100% honest. As you can imagine, not conforming to what everyone else is doing at that age, isn't always simple, but taking the high road, Zach refused to change for anyone. Jumping forward to his early twenties, Zach moved to San Francisco and began to emerge himself into his career. At 23, he found himself working in a high-rise with a successful mortgage broker business partner. From the outside looking in, he looked set, especially for such a young adult…but he didn't stop there. A wise friend once told him “You can go through this or you can GROW through this.” Words that Zach continue to live by. Touching on the four realms in which we live in, he shares with us his daily habit that gets him going in the morning.

“If I hit on all four categories, no matter what else is going on throughout my day, if I can just build the muscle of hitting those 4 areas, then I am building the muscle of serving my highest value.”

Zach is the inspiration and motivation we have all been looking for, to follow our hearts and go after exactly what makes us happy, and nothing less.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Thinking differently
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Authenticity
  • Life lessons
  • Following your dreams
  • Embracing the struggle
  • The 4 realms

“I generally find the comparison is the fast track to unhappiness. No one every compares themselves to someone else, and comes out even.” -Jack Canfield

Have we all compared ourselves at some point or another? Of course! But what we are failing to realize, is that we are comparing someone’s “highlight reel,” to our reality and where we are right now.

The motivation behind my morning Facebook lives with you all, is to show that we have to start before we are ready. It is not all about the kind of makeup we wear, or who's hair looks better, or even who's body is more fit, it’s to show that we are all human and there is no need to every compare apples to apples.

“We should always feel safe enough to show up being exactly who we are!”

Our life missions should be based around how fast we can forgive. That way we can move forward and back into a place of love, because everything stems from love.

In This Episode You Will Learn About:

  • Comparison
  • Loving yourself
  • Dealing with your cards
  • Judgment
  • Imperfection
  • Letting go

Nicole has worked as a client-facing business executive for Fortune 500 companies in both sales and marketing for over 10 years.

In just 11 months, Nicole has built herself a 7-figure business, as she tells us “Miracles happen and God is good!” As the daughter of two hard working immigrants, in inner-city DC, Nicole’s upbringing didn't always come with the mindset of “it’s always going to work,” that was something she had to teach herself. Her mother was a secretary and her father was a taxi driver.

“One thing they did instill was keeping positivity, staying focused and that your income does not determine your outcome.”

Flashing forward, Nicole jumped into entrepreneurship in a way I had yet to hear, up until now… This powerhouse lady quit her job via Periscope with thousands of people watching her live! She knew where her passion lie and she wasn’t about to give up the opportunity to jump for it. But the idea of being bigger and better had to start somewhere. She shares some of her pivotal childhood memories, riding in the front seat of the cab, with her Dad.

He pointed out a tall building and told me “You can have your name on the side of one, or you can get stuck cleaning one. The only difference is up to you.”

You can hear in her voice, the confidence and self-love that she streams, enough to have led her into her dream and 7-figure salary life.

“I just knew I couldn't live paycheck to paycheck.”

Liana Werner-Gray is a Best Selling Author for "The Earth Diet" published by Hay House including #1 on Amazon in 9 different categories. She is an advocate for natural healing using a wholesome diet and lifestyle. In 2009 Liana started an online blog in an attempt to break her 5-year addiction to junk food binge eating. She declared that for 365 days she would eat only foods directly from nature and called it "The Earth Diet". In 3 months Liana healed herself of many health conditions including a stage 1 golf ball size tumor in her lymphatic system, chronic fatigue, glandular fever virus and digestive issues. Liana found a way to have all her favorite foods but in a more natural way that nourished the body as well as hit the pleasure spots. Word of mouth spread as the best diet for weight loss (New Idea Magazine) where women could have their cake and eat it too, and she began lecturing and teaching about the Earth Diet internationally including teaching children at schools about making good choices. Liana has travelled to 17 countries. Liana has a weekly radio show every Wednesday 6pm EST on Liana and her work The Earth Diet have been featured globally on media including Fox News, Better TV, Woman's Own, News 12 (New York), Sirius XM, The Sun, Getty Images, The Telegraph, iTunes, Indian Times, The Hindu, Business Insider, Spirit & Destiny magazine, Natural Awakenings, Mind Body Green and more.

Liana was born in Australia, raised in the outback and currently resides in New York City. Growing up in the outback of Australia, Liana was raised with a very natural upbringing. At the age of 18, she moved to Brisbane City and pursued a career in the arts: Entertainment and TV Production. Finally living on her own, not to mention in a big and modern city compared to the outback, Liana began eating junk foods she was not accustomed to as a child. More specifically, candy or “lollies” as they call is in Australia.

“I enjoyed the sugar high it gave me, it was like a drug.”

Whether it be drugs or alcohol. Liana knew that addiction ran in her family and her “drug of choice” was junk food, it was an unhealthy habit that she had to break. She had the mindset of “I’ll just start next Monday,” binge eating all the junk food she could until Monday popped up. A vicious cycle she dealt with for 5 years! Finally realizing that only she was in control of her body and what she fed it, Liana had a wake up call. A lump had appeared in her neck and continued to slowly grow. Taking herself first to a natural doctor, and then being recommended to the hospital, she knew it wasn't going to be a positive outcome. After the biopsies, Liana was told she had a stage-one tumor in her Lymphatic system, chronic fatigue and glandular fever.

“I knew I had done it to myself, I had poisoned my body.”

That’s when she took the first step. She declared to herself that enough was enough and from then on, she would treat her body with respect. Starting out as a blog, Liana turned her passion of food into the book, “The Earth Diet.” Make sure to tune in to hear Liana’s healthy eating tips and grab a copy of her absolutely amazing & life-changing book!

  • Impulses
