EP#310 - Brain Boosting Oils

September 8, 2021

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jodi Sternoff Cohen.  Jodi is an expert when it comes to essential oils and in this episode, she will share the benefits of using essential oils to boost your brain, destress, and overall wellness.

We discuss how essential oils work, her story and experience with using them plus discuss her new book, "ESSENTIAL OILS TO HEAL THE BRAIN AND BOOST THE BODY: 5 Steps to Calm Anxiety, Sleep Better, Reduce Inflammation, and Regain Control of Health."

Tune in to the episode to learn how to unlock more of the potential of your brain utilizing essential oils!

Who is Jodi Sternoff Cohen?

Jodi Cohen is a bestselling author, award-winning journalist, and founder of Vibrant Blue Oils, a top resource for essential oils online, which welcomes 300,000 visitors every year. Her #1 bestselling book, Healing with Essential Oils, synthesizes decades of leading scientific research to help explain how essential oils can work to support the body and the brain. Random House will publish her second book, Essential Oils to Boost the Brain and Heal the Body, on March 16, 2021.

After personally experiencing the profound physical and mental benefits of essential oils in addressing her own anxiety, insomnia, and autoimmunity, Jodi wanted to know why. Today, she holds certifications in nutritional therapy, functional neurology, herbalism, and aromatherapy, along with multiple continuing education courses in plant medicine, brain health, Chinese medicine, and herbalism.

Jodi has worked closely with healthcare practitioners, including MDs, NDs, nurse practitioners, chiropractors, acupuncturists, health coaches, nutritionists, and yoga instructors, to implement the most effective essential oil protocols in clinical practice to support underlying imbalances that often lead to disease, including sleep, stress, digestion, inflammation, detoxification, and blood-sugar imbalances.

She has since curated and compiled these learnings in her books, blog, and classes to educate more than 65,000 practitioners, individuals and families across the nation on best practices for essential oils to balance the body and the brain.

In 2012, she founded Vibrant Blue Oils, a collection of proprietary blends of organic and wild-crafted essential oils—and a popular destination for the hundreds of thousands of health seeking consumers and practitioners who depend on her supply of quality essential oils.

Trained as an investigative journalist, Jodi earned her MBA from Columbia University, and has worked as a marketing executive at Microsoft, Time Inc., and US News & World Report—and earlier in her career, as a legislative aide to Senator Ted Kennedy.

Today, Jodi devotes her time to helping educate and inspire people to take back and rebalance their health by incorporating the simple, potent practice of essential oils into their lives.

She has had the honor of speaking at Columbia Business School, JJ Virgin’s MindShare Summit, The Nutritional Therapy Association Conference, and Natalie Lussier’s Off the Charts, and featured in several popular wellness publications, including Wellness Mama, Thyroid Pharmacist, and Elephant Journal, among others.

EP#301 - Your Beauty From Within

EP#301 - Your Beauty From Within

August 6, 2021

This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing one of the most noted global beauty and wellness experts in the world, Gregory Landsman.

In this episode, Gregory walks us through the story of his life, what it taught him, how it inspired him into the beauty and wellness world and how breath and faith truly help transformed his life and the lives of many he has been able to work with.

Tune in below and enjoy this amazing episode!

 

Who is Gregory Landsman?

Gregory Landsman is one of the most noted global beauty and wellness experts in the world, a best-selling author of nine books, and a TV host who specializes in using food to take years off the face naturally.

Often referred to as ‘The Beauty Advisor’, Gregory’s books and global TV program Face Lifting Food show viewers how to create quick skin-boosting meals and powerful skin treatments using everyday foods to achieve younger, healthier-looking skin at any age.

Having worked in the beauty industry for 30+ years Gregory believes that looking youthful goes well beyond waging war on wrinkles and that how we age is 100% controllable. His natural methods are used globally by models, shown in universities, and recommended by doctors. 

Gregory is a strong voice for inclusion. His first book, The Balance of Beauty Explodes the Body Myth captured his journey of extremes; from Apartheid South Africa to work at the height of the fashion industry, and his fundamental discovery that regardless of what we do, how we look cannot be separated from how we feel.

EP#298 - Understanding Karma

EP#298 - Understanding Karma

July 27, 2021

Karma...

What is it?

Is it based on your actions?

Is Karma always going to bite you in the @$$?

There have been so many definitions of what Karma is but I will share some insights into what I have learned over the years on Karma and realize, it is not a prison.

Karma is not out to get you. Karma will not settle the score.

Karma is designed to help you awaken. It is designed to show you the path if you are a sinner or not. And when I share the word sinner, it is not in the religious text.

Tune in to find out more and realize the power you have and how you can truly 'burn' your karma, create freedom and live the life you desire.

I highly recommend this episode.

Who is Karl Lashkari?

Karl Lashkari is a former Management Consultant and currently serves as a Men’s Leadership Coach. Karl transformed his health and his life by discovering his true self and connecting with his power and his heart as part of a three-year journey recovering from a chronic illness, one which kept him mostly housebound.

Karl facilitates men’s workshops and will be hosting a leadership intensive, The Leadership Brotherhood, in 2021.

EP#245 - The Monkey in My Head

EP#245 - The Monkey in My Head

January 22, 2021

In this podcast episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing the author of the book, "Mr. Monkey and Me," Mike Smerklo.

Mike shares the inner critic we all face and has done an amazing job of titling it, "The Monkey in my head."

I have always believed if you can make light of the inner critic within you, it takes less power over you and you can be more resilient to the words, emotions, and things it will say to you.

Check out the episode and learn more about the monkeys we all have within our heads!

Who is Mike Smerklo?

Mike Smerklo is an experienced entrepreneur, investor and business leader driven by the desire to turn ideas into reality. Having bought and scaled a small business into a publicly-traded company worth nearly a billion dollars in value, he has a deep understanding of the hard work, dedication, and grit that truly powers successful entrepreneurship. Today, as the co-founder and managing director of Next Coast Ventures, Smerklo is a champion for a new generation of entrepreneurs building disruptive companies in big markets. His new book, Mr. Monkey and Me (Scribe Media, Nov. 17 2020), is a “real talk” guide for entrepreneurs who want to cut through the noise to cultivate a mindset that supports greatness.

 

Smerklo grew up in a blue-collar family outside of Toledo, Ohio, with dreams of achieving something more with his life. After working his way through college to earn an accounting degree and moving to Chicago to launch his CPA career, he eventually talked his way into a junior analyst gig with the Wall Street investment bank Lehman Brothers. While he hated the job, surviving two years of hellish 100-hour workweeks and countless spreadsheets (so many spreadsheets) gave Smerklo a solid understanding of finance and company building. He went on to earn an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and experienced the Silicon Valley dot-com boom as an investment banker at Morgan Stanley.

 

Smerklo was recruited by legendary entrepreneurs Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz as one of the first employees of their new startup, Loudcloud. Here, he learned from the very best about what it takes to grow a company from an idea through an initial public offering.

 

Smerklo began his own entrepreneurship journey in 2003, purchasing ServiceSource, a 30-person technology services startup in San Francisco. As CEO over the next 12 years, he grew the business into a successful 3,000-person publicly-traded company with close to $300M in revenue.

 

He has developed a new perspective on entrepreneurship at the helm of the Austin-based firm Next Coast Ventures, which has backed more than 40 companies across two funds to help startup founders achieve their goals. Mike and his wife spend the bulk of their free time chasing their four children.

EP#241 - One Fine Day

EP#241 - One Fine Day

January 8, 2021

In this episode, I interviewed the author of the book, "One Fine Day."  It was my pleasure to talk and discuss what Sameer's book was about but more importantly, his life story and how life will always have triumphs and tribulations but those tribulations are there for a reason.

He will share his journey and story of what he experienced with health challenges that put his life at a stopping halt and how he realized the beauty behind all the challenges and so much more.

Tune in and let us know what you think!

Who is Sameer Bhide?

In 2017 Sameer suffered a rare hemorrhagic stroke in his cerebellum, underwent two brain surgeries, and spent a month in a medically induced coma. His new bookONE FINE DAY: Overcoming Adversity and Embracing the New Normal with Grace and Gratitude(BMB Publishing | November 2020) is his unique story of resilience and hope.

After his stroke, Sameer’s entire life came crashing down around him. From a life-changing, debilitating illness to the loss of work, and finally a divorce, his amazing story of struggle, and how he came back from the brink of despair will be an inspiration for anyone who is facing any life change or adversity. One Fine Day is a reminder that the old axiom: “The only thing that stays the same is change” is the one absolute truth we can all count on and that successful transition requires successful adaptation.

EP#230 - Never Give In

EP#230 - Never Give In

November 27, 2020
Ever feel like you started off life on the wrong foot?  Or been dealt a bad hand in life?
 
I know I used to think the same way.  I literally started life on the wrong foot being born with bilateral clubfoot.
 
But, in this episode, I learned what I went through in my life through my own health issues, which was nothing compared to my guest.
 
Nathaneal will share his story of what health challenges he faced in life, and how he learned to overcome to create the life that he desires.
 
He didn't give in to the bad hand, or the wrong foot mindset.  He gave into his dreams and from there, transformation in his life occurred.  He created the impossible to make it I'M POSSIBLE.
 
This episode is for those who feel like life is just draining you and you wish you could just take a break or have a different experience.  Tune in and be inspired.  This one is for you!
 
Who is Nathaneal Zurbruegg?
My journey has taken me from being chronically ill for 30 years, having had a medical prognosis like “He shouldn’t be able to walk, talk and should be death six times by now”! 
 
As well as going through 3 failed kidney transplants; over 4500 life-saving treatments so far; several depressions that almost led to suicide and an 80% hearing loss that helps me to only hear what I really want to hear! :)
 
Well, I’m alive like never before! 
 
That all hasn’t stopped me from living a life above average. Becoming an entrepreneur, multiple award-winning global inspirational speaker, victorious mindset mentor, running a 30 km race, and more!
