Anthony Bourke
Anthony Bourke is a winemaker, an F-16 fighter pilot and a successful business entrepreneur. And that's just the shortlist of his accomplishments. Today he's taking all of those experiences and helping others discover how not only to live their best life, but to do it at peak performance. “...It's amazing how many dots connect in this...at least in my experience, when businesses repeat mistakes, when they become complacent, when they stop focusing on growing their people, they may not lose their lives, but you can certainly lose your way of life. We know businesses go away, we know people lose their jobs, sell their homes, move someplace else. I would certainly say that the stakes of not executing at the highest level, not achieving peak performance at not staying number one in your space can be nearly as significant as they can for a fighter pilot…” Learn more about Anthony and his work at mach2consulting.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Wendy Tamis Robbins
For almost 40 years, Wendy Tamis Robbins' life on the outside appeared to be perfect. An all-star athlete, Ivy League graduate, successful attorney, but on the inside, she was unraveling every single day, suffering with nearly debilitating anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive behaviors, bouts of depression, eating disorders, and even thoughts of suicide. Today, she has transformed her anxiety into her superpower, and she is helping others do the same. “...I really don't have a lot of anxiety anymore. I mean, I see my anxiety now as a fierce and loyal protector, and it has been for humans for thousands and thousands of years. That's why we're here. It's a very important protective mechanism that we have. For the little bit that I have now, I just get quiet and listen to it. ...” Wendy's book is titled “The Box: An Invitation to Freedom from Anxiety” and you can learn more about her book, her wonderful coaching practice and her podcast at WendyTamisRobbins.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Matt Emerzian
Being human is tricky because we all want to feel loved, to feel like we matter. And yet we're looking in all the wrong places. Matt Emerzian speaks from his own personal experience.

But it all came crashing down after a complete mental breakdown and in that brokenness, he discovered that none of that mattered. Today, he's helping millions of people discover how much they matter. “...Everything just seemed to work. Until I realized that there was a whole lot more to life that I had never experienced. It caught me off guard, it rocked my world...” Matt has created a modern methodology to help organizations build engaged cultures, drive purposeful impact, and succeed at every level and he’s sharing it at matthewemerzian.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Bridgett Burrick Brown
For more than 20 years, Bridgett Burrick Brown was a sought after model living in Paris, Miami and all around the world. And yet, she struggled with her own body image, yo-yo dieting, often told to lose weight, (even at a size four). Determined to redefine what beauty meant for herself, she walked away from the modeling world and started a movement to change the narrative of what it means to be beautiful from the inside out. “I went on this journey of watching girls struggle severely with eating disorders, and I struggled with my own. I struggled with all of my self worth tied into what I looked like. And you can get lost in that really easily because nothing else is celebrated about you.” Bridgett is ready to empower others to discover what beauty means to them at beyondbeautyproject.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

And it happened in 1974....” Ride the wave with Stacy and hear how he has been living his best life through various chapters of extreme sports, entrepreneurship and filmmaking.

But one central theme has always been there during her professional journey: advancing racial equality.

John Sorgini
In full transparency, I'm not a whiskey drinker, nor am I an expert on such spirits. But John Sorgini’s story from my one-time corporate lawyer to retired Air Force Colonel to spirit entrepreneur has me intrigued.

I visited other distilleries and I went to Bourbon school, tried to learn some things about it, and put all those pieces together…I knew I wanted  to make something, rather than a service…I looked into it for so long, my wife was, like, either do it or stop talking about it. And we just decided to do it...” Meet John and Chattermark Distillers at chattermarkdistillers.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Lisa Sun
If you were told you lack gravitas, how would you respond? When Lisa Sun got that feedback in her first review as a business consultant in a global management consulting firm, it sent her on a two decades quest to uncover what it means to have gravitas, to be truly confident and know your own value. No longer a burned out consultant, Lisa is a noted fashion entrepreneur, founder of the lifestyle brand “Gravitas,” and now the author of “Gravitas: The Eight Strengths That Redefine Confidence.” “...For me, I wanted to redefine confidence, not as a performative behavior but as a choice, a mindset…I wanted to double-click on that through quantitative research, and identify eight other types of confidence because we don't all have to fit into that stereotype of swagger, and extraversion and charisma, to feel good about ourselves…” You can learn more about Lisa, her work as an entrepreneur, founder and author at gravitasnewyork.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Christina Pardy
Christina Pardy admits she did not grow up saying she wanted to be an entrepreneur, far from it. In fact, she went into sales for a tech company. But this millennial turned her side hustle into a million dollar bonafide business. Christina Pardy is the founder of STIK (“Shit that I Knit”), an apparel company that offers sustainably sourced, beautifully hand-knit products. She now has partnerships with many professional sports teams, and even designed and created apparel for the USA Beijing Olympics team. “...My fear of regret is bigger than my fear of failure….And I really thought, What if I look back on this and a year or two years or 20 years from now and say ‘I really had something that I was passionate about, but I didn't do it because I was too afraid of failing…’” You can learn more about Christina, STIK and the way she has knit a next chapter in existence at shitthatiknit.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Monisha Patel
Monisha Patel left her job in software sales and turned her side hustle into a thriving business. The hustle? Custom charcuterie arrangements, workshops and catering. “I have had a lot of ideas that I have been too scared to attempt, too scared to start…There was always some reason not to do it. And this started so organically and so slowly and it grew into what it is today. So there were no more excuses. It already happened. It happened while I wasn't really paying attention, so it really helped move things along…” You can learn more about Monisha, and Boards By Mo, at boardsbymo.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Eric Boles
Think back to a time when you felt you were at your best, on top of the world. What if you could feel that way over and over and over again. Eric Boles says it is possible. He's a former wide receiver in the NFL who had natural talent and ability. But between injuries and what he says were his own mental roadblocks he got dismissed and became a janitor to make ends meet. Through his experiences, he learned how to unleash his own power within and today he's an international leadership consultant and keynote speaker. “I did not understand, at the time, the psychology beyond those things. I didn't know there was a way to rebuild and restore and reframe how I looked at myself and looked at the world...” You can learn more about Eric, his book “Moving to Great: Unleashing Your Best in Life and Work” and more at thegamechangersinc.com Be the first to know of new episodes by subscribing to this show on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
