016 – Jake Ducey: Profit from Happiness
Guest: Jake Ducey
I’ve come with good news!
The podcast will be back with a brand new episode tomorrow afternoon with a pretty in-depth and vulnerable interview with yours truly.
Then we’ve got sessions coming up with sleep expert, Dr. Michael Breus, as well as the greatest therapist of all-time, Mr. Matt Sanders, revealing how men can get in touch with their Intimate Power.
Before we get to the new stuff, I wanted to make sure you were all caught up. Last month I recorded and uploaded a stellar interview with our pal Jake Ducey … BUT I never got around to posting it on the website.
Jake’s latest and third book, Profit from Happiness, is a must-read for anyone who feels disengaged, disempowered, and/or unfulfilled at the workplace.
According to a Gallup survey, that’s 71 percent of the workers these days. In other words, about 3/4 of us are spending most of our waking hours doing something we don’t like or even care about.
No bueno. We can’t let this keep happening.
So in today’s episode (well, actually last month’s episode) Jake and I discuss how you can find more energy, empowerment, and fulfillment … even at a job you’re NOT passionate about.
We’ll even show you how you can make more money while you’re at it.

013 – Elliott Hulse: The Strongest Version of Yourself
Guest: Elliott Hulse
I was having a difficult time coming up with something to write about for this week’s episode of The Sessions. Just haven’t been feeling very creative this week for some reason.
And then I heard that Prince passed away.
I can remember being a little boy, maybe eight years old or so, walking around the house with my Fisher Price boombox, playing Purple Rain, 1999, and Little Red Corvette.
Not only did I admire Prince’s musical genius, but I loved the fact that he was … different.
I mean, the guy would go on stage wearing high heels, skin tight leather pants, see-through tops, and fuzzy pink scarves!
For every person who hated him for his eccentricities, there was someone who LOVED him and wanted to be just like him.
It was as if he gave his fans the inspiration and permission to be themselves. To wear what they wanted to wear. To say what they wanted to say. With no need for anyone else’s approval.
I think we all wish we could be that way. Fully expressed.

012 – Craig Ballantyne: The Perfect Day Formula
Guest: Craig Ballantyne
I’m on a train.
Headed back home from Los Angeles, where I watched Kobe Bryant drop 60 points and score the go-ahead basket in his last game ever.
If it were a Hollywood movie, it would have been the corniest ending ever. The injury-plagued, over-the-hill superstar turns back the clock and gives his fans one final electric performance.
But it happened. In real life. I saw it with my own eyes.
Being a Kobe Bryant fan since I was 18, I’ve always been fascinated by his work ethic. The 4am workouts. The daily routine. First one to practice. Last one to leave.
While his teammates partied, he was fast asleep. Because at 4am the next morning it would all begin again. A lifetime of routine days shaping an extraordinary career.
Love him or hate him, if there’s one thing we can all be certain of, it’s that Kobe Bryant will never look back on his career and wonder how great he could have been. There was no procrastinating. No resting on his laurels. He did what very few of us ever do.
He gave it his all.

010 – Melissa Ambrosini: How to Silence Your Inner Critic
Guest: Melissa Ambrosini
Everyone’s got one.
That annoying voice in our heads that tell us what we can’t do, who we can’t be, and why we can’t do it. Our inner critic.
When we commit to moving forward, it takes joy in stopping us.
When we wish to speak up, it seals our lips and paralyzes the tongue.
When all we want is to say yes, it tells us no.
The inner critic is the voice of FEAR. Stay where you are. Keep things safe. Avoid uncertainty.
It will always be there, it has nowhere to go. This we must accept. Yet as powerful as it may be, it is no match for your own greatest power. Your ability to choose.
On today’s episode of The Sessions, Melissa Ambrosini, author of Mastering Your Mean Girl, reveals how exercising your greatest power can put your inner critic on mute so you can stay on your path to following your purpose and passions.

009 – Nicole Lapin: My Father’s Daughter
Guest: Nicole Lapin
Be kind. For everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
You. Me. Even the rich. Even the famous.
Even the ones who look like they have it all together, as if they have it all figured out.
The truth is, ALL of us are struggling through something. It’s these battles — the ones we face head-on — that cause us to become the strongest versions of ourselves.
If you ever happened upon Nicole Lapin reporting breaking news or hosting the hit TV show Hatched, you might assume you knew her story, what she was all about.
The youngest anchor ever hired by CNN. Author of a bestselling book. Winner of the Best Money Expert award over household names like Warren Buffet, Tony Robbins, and Dave Ramsey.
The daughter of a surgeon and a former Miss Israel.
Born with a silver spoon … or so we’d think.
But things aren’t always what they seem. Not even close.
