EP#107 - The Hidden Entrepreneur

EP#107 - The Hidden Entrepreneur

June 14, 2019

Josh Cary spent 40 years in hiding! That’s right. He was hiding every aspect of himself and showing up with a ‘mask’ on in all areas of life trying to gain the approval of everyone else.
At 19, he changed his name and entered into, what would become, a 15-year career as a professional actor and filmmaker. The applause and external accolades didn’t completely heal his feelings of anxiety and insecurities and he found himself more isolated than ever.

Today, Josh Cary is a podcast host and business coach to entrepreneurs who are ready, willing, and able to say “F That NOISE!”

“F That NOISE” in their head that’s been acting as the comfortable excuse for remaining where they are.

As a digital media and creative consultant, Josh has the uncanny ability to bring the human side out of each person. Whether it’s as a guest on his show or working directly together, you quickly feel consumed by his unique natural energy, bright outlook and creative mind.

He is also a proud father and credits his adoring two young children with helping him to turn things around and embrace the mortality of life.

Josh helps his clients ‘unmask’ themselves by leading them through poignant, important, and direct questions. This approach results in a profound and honest experience that reveals aspects, desires, and philosophies within you that have been dormant for years.

On his podcast, The Hidden Entrepreneur, Josh speaks with successful entrepreneurs, creatives, and small business owners who were also once in the darkest of hiding places so you may rediscover your world, connect beautifully with others, and excel in all you set out to do.

EP#106 - The Eye of the Hurricane

EP#106 - The Eye of the Hurricane

June 12, 2019
We all have allowed ourselves to be affected by the storms of life.
 
There are infinite things that can take us off centered, distract us, and not allow us to be on our path, our vision that we have created and desire to experience.
 
I know this situation far too often and it is something that we all go through.
 
The truth is, this will consistently show up in your life, but as the old saying goes, "It is not about what happenes to you but how you react to it."
 
In this new episode on The Mindful Experiment, I share some life nuggets to help you realize when you are in the storm compared to being in the eye of the storm and what tools can help you along the way.
 
EP#105 - Fulfillment in Authenticity

EP#105 - Fulfillment in Authenticity

June 5, 2019
 The Pauli Exclusion Principle states that there are not two identical things within the entire universe.  So, when it comes to showing up as your authentic self, why would you ever want to be like someone else?  
 
In today's world, many things that are done are copied, stolen, used and the credit is rarely given to the people who started it or were the founders.  
 
This is one reason why I love to share with others, where I learned specific things from.  The purpose is to share and show individuals, I learned from learning from others BUT the fulfillment comes in, when you make it your own.
 
In this episode, I will share concepts, ideas and methods of what you can do to increase your fulfillment and inspiration in life through the acts of authenticity.  
 
I know this is a short, but powerful episode on how to have you shine your true light, share your unique gifts with the world where, no one else in the entire Unvierse has to offer.

EP#103 - Breaking the Diabesity Epidemic

EP#103 - Breaking the Diabesity Epidemic

May 25, 2019
Part CEO, part personal development wonk, and part biohacker info geek, Thom King is a self-confessed serial entrepreneur. While his favorite book list contains many success-oriented and personal-development classics, the traditional definition of achieving success (e.g. make a lot of money) is not what inspires or motivates King. He follows more of a “you aren’t doing well unless you’re also doing some good” line of thinking. King’s company has been built around the simple principle of “do the right thing.”
 
In 1999, Thom’s personal passion for food and his concern over the explosion of metabolic disease led him to found Steviva Brands, now known as Icon Foods, with a mission to stem the tide of “diabesity” by providing consumers healthy alternatives to sugar. In recent years, his passion for food and optimal health have intersected with his embrace of a ketogenic (low carb, high fat) diet. Thom’s latest project is a line of ketogenic condiments intended to help more people successfully adopt a
healthier lifestyle.

EP#102 - The Power of Intuition

EP#102 - The Power of Intuition

May 22, 2019

In this episode, I share the difference between using logic/past experiences/EGO to make a decision rather than, tapping into your intution.  I break down the differences between the two from a neurological standpoint and how to use intuition to the best of my ability to share.

Intuition is something not taught, but learned.  Intuition is a muscle that you can become more aware of and learn to utilize in your life BUT, you have to learn how intuition shows up for you.  I will be sharing how intuition works for me and when I know I am using my intuition vs. Using my mind (left brain).

Tune in and let me know what you think...

EP#101 - The End to Binge Eating

EP#101 - The End to Binge Eating

May 17, 2019

Glenn Livingston, Ph.D. is a veteran psychologist and was the long time CEO of a multi-million dollar consulting firm which has serviced several Fortune 500 clients in the food industry. Glenn has sold $30,000,000 of marketing consulting services over the course of his career.

You may have seen his (or his company’s) previous work, theories, and research in major periodicals like The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Sun Times, The Indiana Star Ledger, The NY Daily News, American Demographics, or any of the other major media outlets you see on this page. You may also have heard him on ABC, WGN, and/or CBS radio, or UPN TV.

Disillusioned by what traditional psychology had to offer overweight and/or food obsessed individuals, Dr. Livingston spent several decades researching the nature of bingeing and overeating via work with his own patients AND a self-funded research program with more than 40,000 participants.

Most important, however, was his own personal journey out of obesity and food prison to a normal, healthy weight and a much more lighthearted relationship with food.
