TYE 020: What If It Was Your Last Year To Live? with Traver Boehm

Traver Boehm is an author, speaker, and transformational coach currently practicing intentional homelessness. When Traver was a child he wanted to be a ninja – that was all. Swimming and playing water polo for Boston College, while earning a B.A. in Asian Philosophy, led to a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo-San University and a career in Mixed Martial Arts. Opening CrossFit Pacific Coast in 2009 brought him to beautiful Santa Barbara.  With avid travelers for parents and employers, Traver has been fortunate to bounce around the globe and see the world from many different perspectives. He’s been kicked and spit on in subways for being a Gaijin living in Tokyo as a youngster, laughed with Indian porters while sharing cheap wine and travelling across India, and protected billionaires living on luxury yachts throughout the Caribbean. He’s surfed through Central America, fought Muay Thai in Thailand, and doesn’t ever plan to stop exploring this world of ours. Traver’s latest venture –The Year to Live Project – will encompass the entirety of 2016 and seeks to tackle the personal question, “What would you do if it were your last year alive?” The project has led him to volunteering in a hospice in Santa Fe, sitting in meditative silence and isolation while in complete darkness for 28 straight days in Guatamala, and will next take him to the woods of Utah to survive with only a knife, a poncho, and a water bottle as tools. His first book, named after the project, is due out in 2017.  When not speaking, or teaching meditation or self-defense, he’s often found chewing on his thumbnail while staring at his computer, obsessing over a word choice. Traver consults with clients from around the globe, assisting them in vastly improving the quality of their lives.

TYE 031: Why Mindset And Magic Might Be The Missing Metrics Of Success with Phoebe Mroczek

Phoebe always knew she was different. At five years old, she jumped into entrepreneurship with a stationary stand and by age ten, she had started her first real business: making and selling scrunchies to girls on the playground. She never wanted to be like everyone else, so she continued to push to the limits in all areas. By the age of 30, she had traveled to more than 55 countries on 6 continents, been cage diving with Great White sharks, camped in the Serengeti and motorbiked across Europe. Phoebe now helps passionate entrepreneurs redefine what it is to be fully alive, successful and more importantly, their best selves so they can create a life and business they fall in love with everyday. Over the past ten years, Phoebe has grown her portfolio with several ventures, including a six-figure online marketing business that she built in twelve months to help established entrepreneurs launch online courses and products. She is also a co-host on the Mind Your Business Podcast, a show with over 430,000 downloads.
