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.

Thanh Pham ~ Founder at Asian Efficiency

~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers


Today, we have a friend Thanh Pham joining the podcast. Thanh is known as one of the top productivity experts in the world. In this interview, Thanh and I nerd out on all his top-productivity techniques. 


Thanh is the founder of Asian Efficiency, and the host of The Productivity Show that he runs with his partner Brooks. On The Productivity Show, they have over 300 episodes, 9 million downloads in total, and around 200,000 downloads per month. Now he's been named as one of the top thought leaders in the productivity industry. 


Thanh teaches workshops all over the world. In the past 10 years, he's helped approximately 15,000 people become more productive from workshops, online training, and courses. During the interview, we talk about Thanh’s daily routine, his weekly planning, his work-life balance, how he created his own system for productivity, some of the productivity tactics that actually make him less productive, which ironically, maybe not so ironically make me less productive as well. Thanh and I discuss his Rule-of-Three, why he does more short-term planning, instead of long term planning, and we talk about the number one thing that helps people become super productive.
