156: Nir Eyal: Indestractible

November 11, 2019

Nir Eyal is an author, lecturer and investor known for his bestselling book, Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products.  His new book is a life-changer: Indestractible: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. 

Nir writes:  

"I’m the author of Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products and Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life. I have taught at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Design School. I’ve sold two technology companies since 2003 and now help teams design more engaging products.

He writes: "For most of my career I’ve worked in the video gaming and advertising industries where I learned, applied (and at times rejected) the techniques used to motivate and manipulate users. I write to help companies create behaviors that benefit their users while educating people on how to build healthful habits in their own lives.

As an active angel investor, I put my money where my mouth is by backing habit-forming products I believe improve lives. Some of my past investments include Eventbrite (NYSE:EB), Refresh.io (acquired by LinkedIn), Worklife (acquired by Cisco), Product Hunt (acquired by Angelist)Marco PoloPresence Learning7 CupsPanaKahoot!Byte FoodsFocusMate, and Anchor.fm (acquired by Spotify).

Although I received most of my education earning an advanced degree from The School of Hard Knocks, I also received an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business."

152: Patrick Vellner: CrossFit, Hard Work and “We are Not Machines”

October 30, 2019

Meredith Atwood (@SwimBikeMom) and her co-host, ten-year old Stella (@Wods4Kids), interview CrossFit Games podium athlete and all-around nice guy, Patrick Vellner.

Vellner says, "[As a] part time chiropractor in Nanaimo, Canada, I have an extensive sports background and have been competing in Crossfit since 2013. I made it to the games for the first time in 2015 on Team Crossfit Plateau 2 and have since been back in 2016-2019 to compete as an individual finishing on the podium 3 times. Crossfit has been a great way for me to challenge myself and escape from my studies while also being a great outlet for my competitiveness."

126: Dani Grabol: Fear No Distance (Returns to the Podcast)

126: Dani Grabol: Fear No Distance (Returns to the Podcast)

August 6, 2019

This Episode is dedicated to the memory of Bethany Rutledge.

A return to the podcast with the EPIC Dani Grabol.

A long and hard race. The EPIC Danielle "Dani" Grabol is mind-boggling... in a good way. After developing "terrible eating habits" in her teen years and into her twenties, she had a rude health awakening. Losing her breath while walking up a small flight of stairs, Danielle realized that her health was on a downward spiral and it was time to make a serious lifestyle change.

She then lost 70 pounds, became an ultra athlete, and not only that---she literally proved that she feared NO distance: she was the FIRST woman to complete Epic 5 (5 iron distance triathlons in 5 Days on 5 islands of Hawaii). She has shattered the stereotypes of females in ultra sports with this feat---not to mention she is also a double iron distance finisher (281.2-mile Double Anvil Triathlon), and the Race Across America (RAMM) (a bicycle race from coast to coast) 2-Person Female Record Holder. 

In her new book, Fear No Distance, Danielle opens up about overcoming injuries, and discovering the world of ultra bike racing and long distance cycling.  Her story is one of incredible grit and determination.

124: Anna Woods: SheStrength (Returns to the Same 24 Hours Podcast)

124: Anna Woods: SheStrength (Returns to the Same 24 Hours Podcast)

July 29, 2019

Where Are They Now?  Anna Woods (First appearance - Episode 2) is back!

An interview with the amazing Anna Woods, founder of SheStrength.  

As mentioned in the Episode, the Importance of Core Stability, called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stability, - Anna learned it through rehabbing her own shoulder with Dr Jared Shoemaker, InMotion Spine Muscle Joint —www.inmotionsmj.com 

Her story:

"I am a wife and mom of 3. We have 2 girls and a boy. We adopted my son, who rocks an extra chromosome in 2011 from Ukraine, through Reece's Rainbow.  My online training with adults with special needs changed my world so much that it lead us to the adoption of a child with special needs. Shortly after adopting him, my oldest daughter was diagnosed with high-function asperger's, sensory processing disorder and anxiety.  Which leads me to my passion for home fitness.  I have always been an athlete and after tearing my ACL my last year of college softball I had to learn how to "train for life," and not train for whatever my coach told me we should do. And first that was physical therapy...from there I attended a Strong Women's conference and learned about the amazing affects strength training could have on the elderly and frail adult woman..and my life was changed! I changed my degree to Exercise Science from Art...and the rest is history. 

"I opened my own fitness business online and in my basement in 2007, after we moved to rural Kansas.  I had worked in a gym setting all through college and after but knew I wanted to stay home with my kids more than anything, so entrepreneurship was the only way I saw to do it all.  That lead to working in retirement communities teaching my strength training programs I designed and that lead to working with adults with special needs in their homes and day service provider's.  And eventually I, myself, got into CrossFit, powerlifting, olympic lifting, and built my own garage gym from scratch metal, buy sell, trade sites, Craig's list, and garage sales.  I started competing heavily in this region and was winning alot.  But people couldn't believe I trained at home by myself...so they dubbed me the name "home gym." And it stuck.  People didn't know the struggles I had to deal with at home, relating to stress with a husband who worked crazy hours leaving me a single mom most days and nights...dealing with out of control behavior's with asperger's, and physical and emotional struggles with a child who spent his first 2 year's in an orphanage.  I NEEDED to workout. I NEEDED something just for me.  And I HAD to workout at home when I could find time.  Or needed an escape.  My workouts became so much more for me than a quest for a banging bod.  

"And I began to form this concept in my head of empowerment.  That we have to give ourselves permission to take time for us.  That we have to make ourselves a priority.  And that we need accountability to that.  And in all of my 14 years of working in this industry I had never seen such a promotion or product.  So I made my own: sheSTRENGTH.

"A journey to empowerment. Mindset training.  Community. Vulnerability.  Strength.  Belief.  Courage.  And so much more.  But I want women to know its okay to want more for themselves in life. 

"And so that is my mission now.  To help women find their sheSTRENGTH.  Most usually the unlikely athletes, who don't feel they deserve to feel and look better, who are so far lost in their lives, kids, family, and needs of others they have lost sight of who they are and what they love."

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
