109: Gary John Bishop: Stop Doing That Sh*t

May 6, 2019

He's BACK! His new book, Stop Doing that Sh*t, is available now.

Gary John Bishop began his life journey in Glasgow, Scotland. The grit and wit of his early life have contributed to his tough-love, in-your-face approach to coaching. Coupled with world-class training and development, Gary has created a potent brew of effectiveness and the ability to reach through the crust of people's lives and root out the deeper issues that consume them and tie them to their hurdles. His ability to elevate and expand people's greatness makes the kind of life-altering impact that is so rare in the industry. Gary's hyper-awareness and years of elite training allow him to assess each client and guide them to the path that best expresses their lives; with micro precision, he cuts straight to the heart of what is going to make a difference.

Gary's experience and quick ascent to becoming a senior program director for one of the world's leading personal development organizations is proof that he is dedicated and committed to what is possible for every client and person he encounters. He doesn't claim perfection. He's been through life and doesn't sugar coat his folly. He uses his experience as both a human and a world class coach to mentor and coach people to raise the bar higher for what they once thought would be their greatest self.

Gary John Bishop is one of the leading Personal Development experts in the industry with a global reputation that has impacted tens of thousands of people worldwide. His "urban philosophy" approach represents a new wave of personal empowerment and life mastery that has caused miraculous results for people in the quality and performance of their lives.
 He calls it like it is while being influenced by ontology, phenomenology and the philosophy of some of the world's greatest thinkers. You be inspired, unburdened and grounded. Working with Gary creates the space to be an altered version of you. The greatness you once imagined becomes a reality, only its bigger, better and more incredibly freeing than you dreamed it could be.  

Gary is willing to say what needs to be said. His writing is a higher level experience and the benefits of his philosophies have touched lives worldwide.

Gary John Bishop is the author of Unfu*k Yourself, Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

106: Emily Giffin: Something Borrowed, Something Lawyered, and Something Written

106: Emily Giffin: Something Borrowed, Something Lawyered, and Something Written

April 10, 2019

"All writers are neurotic and somewhat miserable." :)

Emily Giffin, author of major hit novels such as Something Borrowed (adapted for the screen and hit theaters in May 2011, starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski.), and eight others - well, she is one of my writing heroes.

Her books, all filled with endearingly flawed characters and emotional complexity, have resonated deeply with both critics and readers around the world, achieving bestseller status in a number of countries, including the United States (#1), Canada (#1), United Kingdom, France, Brazil and Poland (#1). The books have been translated into thirty-one languages, with over eleven million copies sold worldwide. In addition, five of her novels have been optioned for the big screen and are in various stages of development. 

Emily Giffin, a Chicago native, graduated summa cum laude from Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia School of Law. After law school, she moved to Manhattan and practiced litigation at a large firm for several years while she paid back her school loans, wrote a novel in her very limited spare time, and dreamed of becoming a writer. 

Despite the rejection of her first manuscript, Giffin persisted, retiring from the legal profession and moving to London to pursue her dreams full time. It was there that she began writing Something Borrowed(2004), a story of a young woman who, upon turning thirty, finally learned to take a risk and follow her heart. One year later, Giffin’s own gamble paid off, as she completed her manuscript, landed an agent and signed a two-book deal on both sides of the Atlantic. The following summer, Something Borrowed, hailed as a “heartbreakingly honest debut” with “dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth,” became a surprise sensation, and Giffin vowed never to practice law again.

Dubbed a “modern day Jane Austen” (Vanity Fair) and a “dependably down-to-earth storyteller” (New York Times), Giffin has since penned six more New York Times bestsellers, Something Blue (2005), Baby Proof (2006), Love the One You’re With (2008), Heart of the Matter (2010), Where We Belong (2012), The One & Only (2014) and First Comes Love (2016).  

Giffin now resides with her husband and three children in Atlanta. Her ninth novel, All We Ever Wanted, was released on June 26, 2018.

71: Jeffrey Davis: Tracking Wonder & Big Picture Map Making

May 3, 2018

What a refreshing conversation with the amazing Jeffrey Davis. Jeffrey is a speaker, author, founder of Tracking Wonder & Brand Artistry Labs. "Wonder is your surprising advantage," Jeffrey says.

You don’t have to surrender or suppress your curiosity. Whether you’re an executive, professional, creative, or entrepreneur, you are a storyteller. And you don’t have to sacrifice your big idea in pursuit of profit. Forget about choosing between being “responsible” or living a fulfilling life. You can do both. Today, we live in a world where you can build a meaningful business and life while also making a living and a difference.

We talk about mostly parenting, creativity and life... but such a great time with this amazing Wonder. :)
