He is an expert on creativity and how learning to tap into our creativity, will return us back to the true essence of who we are.

In this episode, he will share many concepts on how creativity can solve all problems and bring more joy into life.

EP#209 -Tapping Into the Dark

EP#209 -Tapping Into the Dark

September 15, 2020

We will always face the dark in all aspects of life.

No matter how much we try to avoid it, it will show up in life.

Too many times in life, when $h!t hits the fan in life, our mind wants to create control. 

When the light starts to dim in life, we want to do all that we can to slow the process down.

But, what if, it was all happening for a design, rather than just to you?

What if it is vastly something to help you expand in your life?

All things have a silver lining in one way or another.  It is law (Law of Duality).

Join me on a short but straight episode by tuning in below!

EP#208 - It Just Is…  You Create The Rest…

EP#208 - It Just Is… You Create The Rest…

September 10, 2020

Humans are story tellers and our perspectives in life truly can dictate our experiences...

In this episode, I will be sharing how an event is just an event, and how you express, explain, put emotions and are energetically charged to the event, is what gives it life and its experiences for you.

The mind is a fascinating thing and most of the time, how you see an event is through a filter.  A bias if you will.  This is why 10 people can all experience the same event and end up with 10 different stories of the event.

At the end of the day, what's your perspective of the event, is what will play a role for you in your life.

Tune in as I share 2 personal stories on this topic and much more that will give you the best advice I can share as this is my first podcast episode in my new year!

EP#207 - Empowering Men The Alpha Hippie Way

EP#207 - Empowering Men The Alpha Hippie Way

September 5, 2020

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing a good friend of mine who has been the podcast before (EP#43), Angelo Sisco.

Angelo and I have known each other for over 30 years and the man who he is today is inspiring to see.

We both grew up in Melrose Park, IL, went to high school together and so much more.

In this episode, Angelo and I discuss the lack of men learning what it is to be a man.  In many other cultures, they take men, at a specific age, and teach them what it is meant to be a man.

I know I wish I had this when I was growing up instead of learning from the hard knocks of life.

Who is Angelo Sisco?

On October 15th, 2002, Angelo Sisco was involved in a hit and run motorcycle accident that changed his life forever. In an instant, he went from being a 20-year-old entrepreneur to someone fighting to save his leg and his way of life.

After 8 surgeries, two months in a hospital bed, 5 months of daily rehab and the encouraging news from his doctors that any kind of athletics is permanently out of the question, Angelo fell into a deep depression.In 2009 he discovered CrossFit and everything changed once again. He had a new focus. He had a new purpose. He lost 100 pounds, which catapulted a 10-year journey that he couldn’t even imagine.

During the 2010s, Angelo opened O’Hare CrossFit and CrossFit Harwood Heights, consulted over 400 affiliates worldwide, co-founded Lifestyle Nutrition and Conquer Athlete, became an international speaker on how to succeed as an affiliate owner, coached multiple CrossFit games, competitors.

Angelo’s success in coaching and business gave him the confidence to begin what he would consider his most important journey of them all, self-development in 2015.  After years of deep inner work, reflection, and growth Angelo titled his journey of self-discovery, Alpha Hippie.

In true Angelo Sisco fashion, he followed what inspired him and began sharing his message through his podcast Alpha HIppie, and began mentoring other men on their path to self-discovery.

In late 2019 Angelo realized he was at a crossroads in his career.  A choice had to be made; to stay in a place of comfort or step into the identity that was calling him, Alpha Hippie.  Angelo chose to step fully into Alpha Hippie. 

In 2020, emits the most unprecedented time in our recent history, Angelo removed himself from all business ventures that were CrossFit related, moved his new family to San Clemente, California, and partnered up with Markus Gerszi to embark on a renewed more focus version of Alpha Hippie.

Alpha Hippie’s mission is to help overwhelmed men over 30, who are stuck in stress and burnout, reconnect to their mission and rebuild their lifestyle, so they can enjoy their free time again and get back to crushing it at work again.

Alpha Hippie share’s their mission via their men’s Facebook group, Be the Bad-Ass you were born to be, the Alpha Hippie podcast, and program for men entitled Alpha Hippie Foundations.

In his free time, Angelo loves to travel, eat great food, and spend time with the people closest to him.

EP#206 - The Mirror Effect

EP#206 - The Mirror Effect

September 2, 2020

Ever hear the statement, "Take a look in the mirror first?"

The mirror effect is a way to check yourself and the best analogy to take self-responsibility.

In a society where we like to blame other things.  We like to blame society.  We like to blame the justice system, educational system, etc.  We are constantly looking outside of ourselves but then, we look up to people who broke out of the system and call them, "lucky."  Or we discredit their success in one way or another.

You are praised in public for the work you do in the dark.

The work you do in the dark is the things you don't get praised for.

Looking into mirror is true, blunt, honesty with yourself of holding you accountable.

As the Universal Law states, "All things happen THROUGH you, not TO YOU."  

Tune in and let us know your thoughts!

EP#202 - How Can You See With Foggy Glasses?

EP#202 - How Can You See With Foggy Glasses?

August 19, 2020

Clarity is a key component into creating alignment with the life and person you desire to experience to allow for the manifestation to be easier.

Clarity and Vision put together truly creates a magnetic force to allow for manifestation to work.

In this podcast, I share a story of my recent certification exams I was taking and how I needed to set a deadline and seeing the path towards that deadline, how it helped me get there.

I use this in all big major tasks that I am accomplishing, when it comes to writing a new book, working on a new online course, setting up a string of podcasts and so much more.

It allows for me to be massively productive but very intentional in the work that I do.

Tune in and enjoy the recap at the end of the podcast that I share to help you get in alignment to create more magnetic power to manifest the life you desire and the person you want to become...

EP#198 -There Are No Rules in Life

EP#198 -There Are No Rules in Life

August 4, 2020

There are no rules in life except the ones you create.⁠ ⁠ I remember the day this quote was presented to me in a meditation...⁠ ⁠

 

It has been a 23-year journey to get to this point...⁠ 

 

When I was 12 years old, I always told my mom, "I am going to figure out life and how it works."⁠ ⁠

 

23 years later, I learned a few things...⁠ ⁠ In this episode, I will share some of the quantum physics and neurological principles that support this and so much more...⁠ ⁠
