Ep 045 Love Money Money Loves You with Sarah McCrum

By | Podcast

Dec 18, 2019

Take one human being. Add a Cambridge University education and 10 years in BBC Radio. Mix in 22 years of training with Chinese Masters. Then combine with a lot of common sense, diverse life experiences and a passion for inspiring leaders. The result is Sarah McCrum and she’s different to anything you’ve experienced before.

From the moment you connect with her you are led towards a world of relaxed inner peace and happiness. It’s a world where the laws of life are constantly challenged in an easy-going, friendly way. A world where you will discover more about yourself than you ever imagined, and your greatest potential will thrive. 

After 22 years training with Chinese Masters Sarah experiences the world differently from most and this has transformed her life. She has a passionate curiosity about what makes people work at their best, and an almost magical ability to solve problems through dialogue. Her unique way of sharing peace and happiness touches the hearts of individuals, groups and crowds. It’s a powerful combination.

As a coach for leaders and business owners, Sarah is known for injecting spirit and energy into the whole family as she helps her clients shift perspectives and change their lives through simple conversations.

She has also become one of my mentors and i can tell you from my own personal experience, the more i listen to what money is saying to me, the more things start to change in my relationship with it. It makes complete sense when I think about tit, because how can i have a relationship with someone or something, if i never give it a chance to tell me what it wants to say to me. If you get nothing more from this podcast than just this one simple perceptual shift, it will be one of themes important gifts you have ever given yourself.

In this podcast, you will hear:

  • A fresh new innovative perspective on Money
  • Why so many people who are ”spiritual” don’t have money and why so many people who have money don’t have fulfillment.
  • A powerful question: What is money trying to say to you?
  • a beautiful moving audio of Chapter 1 of her book, Love Money Money Loves You that shares with you what money is trying to say to you. Listen to this everyday if you can and feel what happens.
  • An invitation to see if your relationship with money is similar to your relationship to your significant other and to life itself
  • How the marriage of money and fulfillment is the life we all seek
  • How your relationship to money is the key to having a beautiful life.
  • That first moment when you realize that everything in the world is speaking to you
  • How everything you want is right in front of you
  • I invite you to get to know Sarah work and allow it to shift some of your perspectives. You will be happy you did.

Ep 044 The Story Behind The Storyteller with Noah benShea

By | Podcast

Dec 12, 2019

Noah benShea is one of North America’s most respected and beloved poet philosophers. He is a Pulitzer Prize nominated, international Best Selling author of 25 books translated into 18 languages.

He was a dean at UCLA at the age of 22 and at 30 a Fellow at several esteemed “think tanks”. He has served as a private advisor to corporate and political leaders

If you look at the testimonials he lists on his page it is a virtual who’s who of people you would love to sit with for even just a moment, but the one that touches me is from a childhood hero of mine Sandy Koufax, a Jewish pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

People told me I reminded them of him, that my book The Mosaic reminded them of his book, Jacob the Baker

I have loved our correspondence and Noah’s brilliance, wit and kindness and it is with pleasure that I welcome him to:

Here is what you will hear in this podcast interview:

 

  • the humble beginnings to a beautiful life that planted the seeds of greatness in him and the grace of humility
  • the beautiful feeling of how loved he felt growing up with his parents.
  • an interesting view of reincarnation
  • the moment bwtween Christmas and New Years Eve when he was watching the great business guru Peter Drucker on PBS and the question Peter asked that made him feel like he was sitting with a Zen Master
  • what he feels his work truly is
  • his counsel on how to be a source of strength to people
  • when you live on a ball spinning 160,000 miles an hour you will lose your balance sometimes. how do we deal with that?
  • self abusive vs. self accountable
  • if you were to treat every person as the savior it wouldn’t make any difference if they were the savior or not. and the evolution of his character, Jacob the Baker and how the book came to be written.
  • how he started a bakery thinking it would be fun, but it turned out to be much more, it became a big success.
  • play the part not the result and what that means
  • when he told me the story of his book, Jacob the Baker, I realized why people said I reminded them of him. Jacob the Baker could be right out of The Mosaic.
  • what is the magic behind playing the part that brings success as you look at it now in retrospect.
  • the knowledge he received when he was invited to give so many talks was not to carry the bag of his knowledge with him but rather the understanding needed to hear the truth he was to be aware of his deafness, to see the truth to become aware of his blindness to know wisdom to realize his ignorance.
  • the feeling of being blessed and still needing to find his way
  • what does the story behind his story say that he has never been able to say
  • the journey of birth, death and learning
  • the biggest surprise he experienced in his life. hear him explain this.
  • the beauty of real humor and how he loves to laugh
  • what is the one thing he would recommend we do to make this the world we want to give to our children and our children’s children.

Ep 043 A Conversation With My Muse with Sandra Sedgbeer

By | Podcast

Nov 15, 2019

Sandra Sedgbeer says: “Like all of us, I’m an alchemist; a magician; an artist, explorer, and a creator. I see life as a grand adventure, a play that can have as many acts and rewrites as I can envision. I’ve enjoyed trying on different faces in different phases, stretching my creative muscles, discovering different talents, and exploring the limits of my “What if…?” kind of mindset.

Of course, if you read my CV or what people have said about me, you’ll learn enough to start building some kind of picture. Like… how I started my career as a magazine journalist… became an author…  and a conceptualizer, developer and Managing Editor of magazines…”

All of that is well and good but for me, Sandie is my muse. She is the one that drew out of me, the most important work I have done in my life. It is her patience, her kindness, her relentless desire to not let me get away with something less than what was possible that makes me forever indebted to her. She is the reason, The Mosaic exists.

 

This is what you will hear on this podcast:

 

  • The importance of having a Muse and my excitement at havng you meet my Muse
  • hear how everything in the world speaks to us if we would only listen
  • listen to how the father she never knew (he died several months before she was born) and how she was brought up in a very poor environment; the story of how the neighbors thought Sandra was being left alone too much and how social services took her away from her mother
  • how do you forgive and find positivity out of negative situations
  • how an observer is given the opportunity to observes things she would never have seen
  • how the impact of this experience made her feel
  • how it created in me a drive to succeed and what that did to me
  • the story of someone calling her who knew her years and years ago
  • a download that she had and what a download means
  • a big moment of realization that she experienced and what she embraced from that point
  • the story she tells in not just her story, but yours as well. This is the Muse-ness of Sandie.
  • when something drops in and you can’t find the thoughts to explain it, that little space that opens up is the download
  • that moment where a perception shifts
  • The story of The Blind Woman and its relevance to the world we live in
  • the bond of The Muse and the person who comes to them. The bond we experienced and how we both influenced each other and how she has never worked with anyone else like that before.
  • how important it is to have someone hear who you are and not let you get away with being anything less than you are
  • the courage it takes to go in and touch another persons soul.
  • find out what she thinks is the most important thing in the world
  • the difference in the way we feel when we give up what we think and listen to what is being given to us
  • the beauty of knowing yourself and pulling you out of you
  • and more . . .

Ep 042 You Were Born A Winner with Shawn Harper

By | Podcast

 

Shawn Harper’s accomplishments as a motivational speaker were not achieved over night it was a process that stemmed from childhood.

Shawn’s childhood was marked with poverty, by 5th Grade he was documented with  five learning disabilities, stuttering, academic failure, drugs, and alcohol. This was a process he had to endure to develop strength of character to become the confident man he is today.

He is a former NFL offensive lineman who played a total of seven seasons with the Rams, the Oilers, the Colts, and NFL Europe.  Since 2004 he has owned and operates American Services and Protection, a multi-million-dollar security services firm headquartered in Columbus, Ohio.  A Motivational Speaker and an Author. His journey from the grit and sweat of the NFL locker room to the corporate culture of the boardroom proved that he could win in both worlds by using many of the same principles and strategies!

As a powerful, nationally-recognized motivational speaker, Shawn Harper has inspired countless individuals and corporations such as Dow Chemical, Northwest Mutual, Beach Body, Chambers Of Commerce, Michigan Aggregates Association and Goodwill Industries to maximize their resources, harness their potential, and manifest their vision.  Growth and reproduction in the areas of leadership, capacity, teamwork, adversity, and communications are the hallmarks of winners.

Harper understands that on the journey to victory, obstacles will arise and challengers will push back, but he believes that “a setback is just a setup for a comeback”!

Discover more about the concepts that catapulted him to the front of the line in his book “The Winning Edge, 8 Principles that Will Bring Out the Winner in You” on Amazon.com and visit his website at shawnharper.org.

Ep 041 Choosing Happiness First with Bryan and Jen Dangerz

By | Podcast

Nov 6, 2019

Bryan and Jen Dangerz

They have spent the last 7yrs living a nomadic lifestyle focused on happiness and adventure. They converted first a VW Bus into a living space and travelled to the bottommost point of Mexico. As money was running out, they returned to Oregon and built a tiny house (really more of a loft) out of their garage and spent a year helping others to minimise their living situations, and then choose to rent out their garage as a B&B to live in our Sprinter CamperVan and are digital nomads running our small businesses from the road.

Somewhere along the way they met a man with a sailboat that was ready to stop sailing and they traded their Sprinter CamperVan for his sailboat and took their adventure to the sea. The only thing is that neither of them ever sailed before and so they used this as an opportunity to jump into something they knew nothing about and continue their adventure.

They decided several years ago to become minimalists and to collect memories rather than material things and eventually quit their jobs to live a simple and happy lifestyle today rather than waiting on a retirement that may never come.

In this podcast, you will hear about:

  • The ManCrush I have on these two beautiful people because they have been nomads doing what I have wanted to do for the past 8 years. Hear about that life now
  • Hear about the things they wanted to be and how the adults talked tham out of it.
  • How the questions I asked them brought a response I didn’t expect
  • How to step out of the life you no longer want to live
  • How the commitment to living the life we hate living, that causes us stress and diseases, because of finances is changed by a relationship with someone who never felt any of these things
  • A stressed out business guy meets and Oregon hippie girl
  • Hear how 2 very different lives come together
  • See how the way we see the world can be completely different frommthe way others see us
  • Hear how it is not only possible, but beautiful to meet and love a completely different people
  • You don’t know until you ask and diving into that ask makes us look at the labels we assign to people and how untrue they are
  • How to find the courage to leave everything you know. How to leave the stress that makes our life so hard and leave that to live a life that is based on happiness.
  • The comfort of knowing now that we could always go back. It was terrifying then, but not now.
  • The fear of the first step
  • The shift that allows all the other shift to happen
  • What if’s world. What if some of the what if’s we are scared of is something we will want to do later
  • The place where literally the road ends, what do we do?
  • What happens when we realize what we are running from is not what we are running from
  • The realization that we didn’t need to do things the way we were doing it, we could recreate it to be the way we want if we re-open ourselves up to things we had originally shut down
  • The road made us realize we were just as comfortable in our home as we were on the road and so we created a scenario where our home could finance our travels and our travels could energize our return home.
  • What changed that made the same place feel entirely different
  • How we recreated the same reality that made us leave and how they dealt with that.
  • The delicate balance of learning lessons more than one time
  • The discovery of hearing them speak and watching them discover what each other really think
  • What happens when the pollyannaish dream crashes and things don’t work out
  • How to move from freak out to just solving the problem
  • What they found out about people in the process of their journey
  • What scared them and how they dealt with their fears
  • The things that send most people home is not the danger of the travel but rather the ability to deal with our own minds
  • and so much more . . . .
