#058 Intera: A New Pathway To Success with Jonathan Troen (Life Mastery Coach)

We need to challenge the definition of success that society showcases for all of us. The stardom, the big house, and cars, the luxurious vacations. All of that is empty without the human connection. The ties to family, friends, colleagues, etc are fundamentally more important. Without them how do you enjoy your so-called success? We have seen people like Chris Cornell, Robin Williams, Anthony Bourdain, Chester Bennington, etc take their lives even though from the outside, all they looked were nothing but successful.In this episode, I speak with Jonathan Troen, a life master coach who spearheads the self-love revolution. Nothing is more important than loving thyself and then you can spread the love around. He and I discuss the new pathway to success and how we can set ourselves and our children for a better way to view our lives.Here in this episode, we discuss;- How to remove the labels we put on ourselves- Why the pursuit of financial success is empty in itself - How we need better role models of successful people- How leading by example is the way to teach our children- How to take the leap to reboot your careerJonathan Troen has spent 20+ years in the music and entertainment industry where he felt deeply unhappy. After discovering yoga post-surgery, he began to understand that self-love was not taught enough and the only lasting love comes from the inside. He is the co-founder of Austin Yoga Tree, runs his own Self Love Revolution life mastery practice, and has been a speaker at South x SouthWest in 2019.Subscribe to the weekly/monthly newsletter here.I've started a BuyMeCoffee sponsorship so it would be great if you could contribute to the podcast.

Why are governmental incentives and punitive measures not enough to drive societal change to tackle problems like climate change, ethical sourcing of labor, etc? Shareholders demand profit at all costs and that most likely won't change. But what if we the consumers, end-users, and economic participants demand change and influence their value in society? How do we do that?In this episode #57, Justin Goldston, professor of Penn State University, talks about the use of technologies like blockchain that already has incentive structures built-in, and also the transparency system can directly influence how we value corporations that are doing the right thing and this will incentives good behavior. Otherwise, the penalty will be a loss in corporate market value that they are so afraid of.In this episode we talk about;- How Justin started to think about ethical supply chain- What are the certain bottlenecks to just tech solutions- How the sharing economy ties into the corporate actions- What are the other uses of blockchain that can contribute to incentives- How he is involved in Bitcountry and the excitement he sees in this projectJustin Goldston is a certified supply chain and organisational change professional who has developed and executed comprehensive digital transformation, organisational change, and supply chain strategies, resulting in optimal customer satisfaction and profitability for clients around the world.
