Ep.493 ~ Dissecting the Art of Impossible w/ Steven Kotler

February 24, 2021

Steven Kotler ~ Author of The Art of Impossible

~ High-Performance Entrepreneurship ~

 

I am going to start this podcast introduction from some passages at the end of a book our guest today has recently written. “What impossible challenges would you tackle if you knew you could be 500% more productive? If you could be 600% more creative? If you could cut your learning times in half?If you could increase your confidence massively, and also spike the pattern recognition significantly in your brain.

I know it sounds like the drug that everyone has dreamed about for centuries to make people feel limitless, and superhuman. But it is not a drug. It is a biological process that nature has embedded into each and every one of us, and we don’t need to be a professional athlete or naturally talented to access it. 

What is it and how does one access it? We are going to talk about that in today's podcast  because the author has written a book that dissects how one can reach this state to achieve what humans think is impossible for themselves. The book is called The Art of Impossible. The author and today’s guest is Steven Kotler.

Steven is a NYTimes Bestselling Author of numerous books including The Rise of Superman, Bold, Abundance, and my favorite read of 2018 Stealing Fire. He is the founder of Flow-State Collective and is an expert in the field of peak-performance, and achieving the impossible because he has studied individuals who have done this numerous times. Some of those people are well known top-athletes, SpecialOps members, NavySEALS, and some of the world’s top entrepreneurs and innovators. He himself has also been a guinea pig to his own madness, and practices on a regular basis what he preaches.

This is Steven's second time on the podcast, and we are going to get behind the man that has studied for years the art of achieving the impossible, why he wrote this book, and how we can apply this methodology to achieve the impossible in our own lives.

February 10, 2021

Steve Sims ~ CEO of Luxury Concierge Service Bluefish

~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

The guy that can make anything happen! Now, that may sound like a cheesy one liner that some over promotional marketing guru might say to get on Fox Business News. But there are legitimate people out there who are working behind the scenes keeping a low profile connecting the world's wealthiest, most successful, and famous people with experiences, and connections that they need on a professional basis, and we have got one of those guys here on the podcast today. 

 

His name is Steve Sims and he is a real life underground connector running a company called Bluefish. For years, Steve has been helping some of the world’s elite do things like have dinner at the foot of Michelangelo’s David statue in Florence while Andrea Bochelli sings to them, scuba down to the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean, watch Formula 1 racing in Monaco with Royalty, experience the Olympic Bobsled Run, and the list goes on and on and on.

 

He is the official concierge for the Grammys, he has worked personally with Sir Elton John, and Elon Musk, spoken at both Harvard and the Pentagon twice. He has been labeled by Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine as “The Real Life Wizard of Oz”!  He has published a best-selling book, “Bluefishing - The Art of Making Things Happen”, documenting how he built a business on social currency. Steve’s blackbook could arguably be one of the most valuable contact lists in the world. 

 

Steve Sims is on the show today so let’s rock and roll!

06:16 Taking People to See the Titanic as the Bottom of the Ocean

Ep. 490 ~ Getting a Meeting w/ the President of the USA in One Week, Carrying the Torch for the Olympic Relay & Being Presented a SuperBowl Ring From a Hall of Fame Coach ~ Cody Lowry

February 3, 2021

Cody Lowry ~ Author of Schmooze: What They Should Teach at Harvard Business School

~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

 

Have you ever met someone that seems like they have cracked a secret code to make impossible things possible?  Someone that seems like they have a secret superpower to achieve really cool things?

Today’s guest is Cody Lowry and he is one of those guys. Cody set up a meeting with the President of the United States in one week. He carried the Olympic Torch in the Torch Relay. Cody got an audition on Saturday Night Live in 48 hours, got the Pope to sign a baseball, and was given a Superbowl Ring from a Hall of Fame Super Bowl Coach. He is one of those guys that makes the impossible possible. 

Cody Lowry’s story is an upbeat and hilarious one. But it wasn’t always that way. He grew up with poverty, abandonment, and a family that moved thirty-two times within a seven-year period. Yet today, he’s a champion of positivity with advice for everyone on how to make each day count. 

 Cody has been a successful marketer for thirty years, building a multi-million dollar ad agency from scratch. How did he overcome his past to achieve such success? He took on life with a unique perspective, executing bold ideas, making others laugh, and being ever mindful of the little guy.

His advice will delight and inspire you. You’ll hear about his travels, and his ups and downs throughout life. Cody Lowry is a man who’s lived a lot of life and walked the walk, as they say. Now, he’s here to show you the steps to take towards a better life for yourself.

Ep.483 ~ 7-Days in Complete Darkness w/ a Brain Scanner

December 16, 2020

Today we have a very special episode for you. Recently, a couple good friends and I decided to travel to the south of Mexico for a 7-Day Darkroom Retreat!  What is a Darkroom Retreat you say?  Good question, because just a couple months ago, I had no idea myself. I was listening to a podcast a friend recommended about this guy who also did a Darkroom Retreat. Basically, it is 7-days in complete darkness and isolation designed for deep reflection, meditation, visualization, visioning, and diving into the depths of our mind!  Monks and native tribes all around the world have been using this type of practice for thousands of years and it is uniformly considered to be a technique that can help people overcome trauma, psychosis, understand vision quests, challenge themselves, deepen their spiritual practice, and understand the inner workings of their psyche, and universe better. 

 

It was no small feet, and all of us that went met challenges that we didn’t expect. We did, however, want to do this Darkroom Retreat a little differently than others of the past. We brought along a top-of-the-line brain scanner that reports a direct measurement of our brain functioning including the EEG brainwave patterns, our brain reactiveness, coherence, cognitive processing & abilities, our visual control, heart rate variability, & the functioning of our autonomic nervous system. This also includes the different frequencies of our alpha, beta, theta, & delta brainwaves, & the synchronization of your brain and heart frequencies.  This machine read the health of our brains before we went into the darkness, and how the darkness affected our brains through the process. What were the results you ask. Well they are pretty amazing, and you’re going to have to listen to the podcast to find out!  We’ll see ya on the other side!

Ep.482 ~ One of the Most Powerful Women I Know  ~ Veena Sidhu

December 9, 2020

Veena Sidhu ~ Founder at Dream Catcher Enterprise

~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Have you ever seen someone walk in the room and just by their charisma, and their energy they captivate everyone else. I once heard about the International Grammy Award winning singer Rihanna. People said even when she was young she would just walk in a room, and she would captivate everyone. When I see someone like that, my first thought is, ‘Who is that person? and “How can I meet them.? I know for many people it can be kind of intimidating to attempt to connect with that person that everyone is noticing, but for me my mindset is, “I want to understand the charisma that person has, and I want to put that person in my friend circle.’

 

Today’s guest is that person. I first noticed her at a business conference on an island in Croatia full of very successful entrepreneurs, and thought leaders. There were a couple hundred people there, and her charisma seemed to be everywhere. I thought to myself, who is that person, and I want to meet her!” and so I did. Not surprisingly she turned out to be a powerhouse entrepreneur, and one of the most successful women I have ever met. Her name is Veena Sidhu, and she is currently the founder of Dream Catcher Enterprise, where her company helps 7-figure businesses scale to 8-figures and beyond through systems, processes, and marketing, but that is really just scratching the surface of who she is. 

 

Throughout her career, Veena spent a significant amount of time working with and building Mindvalley, one of the world’s largest personal-development companies. There Veena was the co-founder and CEO of Mindvalley’s external affiliates and partnerships startup, which grew from $250k a year to $2.5 million in the first year, and $4 million in the second year. Her third year at the company she was made Senior Partner of Mindvalley group of companies, and led as Director of Sales and Publishing.

 

She also helped launch its former course platform — Mindvalley Academy, and oversaw operations of multiple other teams including Content Marketing, Course Creation, Technology, Apps, and Events. Vishen Lakhiana, the founder of Mindvalley said “Veena is one of the singular best people he brought into the company!”

 

Currently, in addition to running Dream Catcher Enterprise, Veena works with the government of Malaysia on multiple projects.

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Could you imagine climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in record time with no training? How about spending 5 hours in an 180 degree sauna? Most people think these are nearly impossible feats but our guest today has done them both. 

 

Today on the podcast we are welcoming back for the second time superhuman performance hacker, investigative journalist, and anthropologist Scott Carney. He is the author of numerous books including the New York Times Bestseller ‘What Doesn’t Kill Us” that talks about his experience studying with Wim Hof who holds 28 world records for various superhuman acts.

 

From this experience Scott learned how to hack his body, and train his mind to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in record time with no training, and just wearing shorts. Scott also spent 5 hours in a sauna that would kill most humans. He has a new book out titled “The Wedge”. In Scott’s new book, he addresses how people can “Wedge” control over their automatic physiological responses, and control their bodies and minds to perform superhuman tasks.  Scott has worked in some of the most dangerous and unlikely corners of the world as an investigative journalist. He has writings that have appeared in Wired, Men's Journal, Playboy, and Fast Company. He has been the subject of many TV programs including NPR, and National Geographic TV. Scott won the Payne Award for Ethics for his story which tracked an international kidnapping-to-adoption ring, and he is with us on the podcast today.

Ep.475 ~ The Author of Essentialism ~ Greg McKeown

October 14, 2020

Greg McKeown ~ Author of Essentialism

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

Hey listeners, I want to welcome you all to a very special podcast that we are recording today!  Why is it special?  Because today we have one of my favorite thought leaders and author of a book that is without a doubt one of my top-10 reads of all time. You know when you find a book or a philosophy, or a quote that sings to your soul, and changes everything for you, this author’s book did that for me. 

 

His name is Greg McKeown and he is the author of Essentialism. Essentialism is a NYTimes Bestseller. It has sold more than 1 million copies around the world, it has been translated in 25 different languages, and voted a Top 20 Book on Leadership by both Amazon and Goodreads. The philosophy of Essentialism has been taught by Facebook, Apple, Pixar, Google, Twitter, and I am sure thousands of other businesses around the world. The ideas and strategies in the book have been featured in Time Magazine, The New York Times, Fast Company, Politico, Inc Magazine, Harvard Business Review, NPR, NBC, Fox, & The Steve Harvey Show. 

 

This book is one book that I couldn’t put down when I read it, I’ve easily recommended it to dozens of people... and also recommend it to all of you. I’ve read it twice now, applied the principles of Essentialism for years, and it will forever be on my bookshelf as a re-readable. 

 

So, who can get value out of this podcast? I am going to answer that question by quoting a passage from Greg’s book. “Now let me ask you this: have you ever found yourself stretched too thin? Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised? Have you ever found yourself majoring in minor activities? Do you ever feel busy but not productive? Like you're always in motion, but never getting anywhere?” 

 

I think guys, that relates to pretty much everyone. We have all been there multiple times in our lives. So, if that relates to you, grab something to take notes and get ready because without further adieu the author of Essentialism, Greg McKeown.

Ep.474 ~ The Story of Summit Series & Buying a $40 Million Mountain ~ Ryan Begelman

October 7, 2020

Ryan Begelman ~ Co-Founder of Summit Series & Biznow Media

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Ryan Begelman is the cofounder of Summit Series and the former CEO and co-owners of BizNow Media. In 2008, Ryan bought into Bisnow Media, became CEO, and bootstrapped it with its founders, Mark and Elliott from $1,000,000 to $20,000,000 in revenue with $7,000,000 annual profit. In 2016, he led the sale of Bisnow to a private equity firm for $50,000,000 and today, Bisnow is the largest producer of commercial real estate news, conferences, and webinars. Bisnow's now has 80 employees operating in 28 metro markets and hosts over 300 annual conferences attracting more than 70,000 attendees. 

I first learned about Ryan when I read Steven Kotler’s book Stealing Fire. In the book they tell the story of 3 young guys that want to rub shoulders with giants and how they got there. Ryan and his buddies came up with an idea to host a ski trip for some of the world's top entrepreneurs and thought leaders. Nineteen people showed up and thus started what is now called Summit Series.

Summit Series began as an event series with a mission to unite world leaders through events designed to catalyze positive personal and collective growth.They gather leaders and feature icons like Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson, Jessica Alba, and Al Gore. 

I thought that idea was really creative and smart, but then as when I learned the next part of the story was one of the boldest, smartest, most genius moves I had ever heard of.  After creating Summit, Ryan and his friends decided they wanted to take their ‘community building’ to the next level and buy a mountain….yes a mountain...where thought leaders and entrepreneurs could live, work, visit and enjoy. So they acquired America’s largest ski resort for $40,000,000 Powder Mountain, where they created an actual town of entrepreneurs and successful people that go to the mountain for conferences, vacation, visiting, and living. Current to date, they have sold over $160,000,000 in homesites.

Ep.472 ~ From Poor Backpackers to 7-Figure Entrepreneurs Traveling Non-Stop with 6 Kids ~ Ka Sundance

September 23, 2020

Ka Sundance ~ Creator Freedom as Family Challenge

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

 

What are the pictures in your mind that come up when you think of traveling the world with children?  Most people think of the challenges, the fears, the lack of support and the money.  Of course, you would need to be very rich to make this happen, right?

 

Our guest today has been traveling the world almost non-stop with his wife for nearly 20 years and everywhere they go, their kids come along. And guess what? They don’t just have one or two kids. Not three or four...they have six!  Yes, six and they are one of the few truly nomadic/location independent entrepreneurs of the world that travel long term as a family and without a home base. On top of that, they are very successful in business, but they didn’t start out that way.  

 

They started out as poor backpackers in their early years trying to get by while traveling the world, and they forged a life of their own when the world told them they were wrong. Now, people can’t wait to ask them how they did it! They are The Sundance Family and today the father, Ka Sundance, joins us from Slovakia to share about how he and his wife Katie made this dream a reality.

“I felt like a lot of people, and I still feel a lot of people are living lies. Lies toward themselves, trying to live a life that is supposedly normal, but is making them unhappy.” Ka Sundance

Ep.462 ~The Future of Video, Television, & Apps from the Co-Founder of Harmon Bros. ~ Jeffrey Harmon

July 15, 2020

Jeffrey Harmon Co-Founder of Harmon Bros. & VidAngel

~ Current Series ~
100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

If you haven't heard of Harmon Brothers. there is a good chance you have seen a commercial or advertisement that was created by this company. Our guest today is Jeffery Harmon, one of the famous Harmon brothers. Jeffrey was one of the first people to figure out you could advertise on YouTube and make money and he did it. In January of 2011, Jeffrey said this…”If my calculations are correct then I can safely estimate that at least 500 channels on YouTube have already created full-time jobs. Hindsight is 20/20 and it was suggested to me by a mentor of mine back in 2011 to start a YouTube channel and use it to make money. I ignored this advice and we see where YouTube has gone in the past 9 years. Now...if you have seen a commercial for Poo Pourri, Clickfunnels, Woodwind Grills, Purple Mattress, Chatbooks, and my favorite the legendary Squatty Potty then you have seen an ad that made the Harmon brothers legends in the marketing world. They now have over $350 Million in sales as a direct result from their video ads, and nearly 1.5 billion cumulative client video views. 

Now, that is just scratching the surface of Jeffery Harmon, Jeffery is also the co-founder of VidAngel, a program that filters violence, profanity, racial slurs, disturbing images and sex from regular TV so families can keep it clean for the kids, or for the adults. He then created Dry Bar Comedy which is a place for people to enjoy clean comedy. They have a YouTube channel and app for Dry Bar Comedy. The YouTube channel has 834,000 subscribers and their app is used close to 30 minutes per use! Dry Bar Comedy is an actual comedy show that now goes on tour around the country to give live clean humor to the world, and now Jeffrey and his partners are working on Chosen App which is the first app of its kind to keep a movie series, and its community completely on the app and has spread to 1 million downloads in just over 2 months using a giving model!
