FRIENDS, IT'S FINALLY HERE! Yes, one of the MOST requested guests on the show (since I launched it), has been this incredible woman. She has one of the most watched TED talks of all time. She is a three-time #1 NYT bestselling author (and soon to be four). She has changed the face of emotional intelligence, relationships, and self-acceptance for millions of people. But her area of expertise is one that not many people are willing to talk about -- shame and vulnerability. I'm talking about the one and only Brené Brown.

Rank #3: Rachel Hollis: How to Build Confidence, Believe in Yourself and Become Your Best Self

Sep 24 2018
Podcast cover
Read more

There are three fears we struggle with the most: The fear of failure The fear of success And the fear of judgment. The center of all of those fears is “I am not enough.” When we get past that, we can step into anything. People-pleasing is an issue a lot of us face. It’s crazy how we can allow one person’s opinion of us to hold us back. That’s why I really enjoyed my conversation with a bestselling mom who overcame her need to make other people happy: Rachel Hollis. Rachel had been working for over a decade on her career, her marriage, and her brand before her career took off. She wrote six books that hardly sold any copies. Her seventh book became a hit. Her life changed with one viral post that created the momentum for her bestselling book. Girl, Wash Your Face has over a million copies sold and is growing every week. She is host of the RISE Podcast and co-host of the RISE Together podcast. She is a mother of four who was named one of the "Top 30 Entrepreneurs under 30" by Inc. Magazine. She is an amazing example of the power of not giving up. So learn how to follow your dreams and live for yourself (even if you’re a mom) on Episode 697.

So many of us feel like we struggle with our weight. We search for diets and end up getting frustrated with them because the rules are hard to follow or they simply don’t work because there’s no 'one size fits all' solution. A while back I discovered a great, easy to use program called Whole30. It explains, step by step, how you can find the diet program that works for you. There’s a lot of people out there whose diet is making them sick. Maybe your friends can eat grains, but you can’t. Whole30 is designed to help you find exactly what YOU need. This system is one that felt so good I took it way past the 30-day mark. But the woman behind it is even more incredible.

Peanuts, cashews, raw beans, chia seeds?

There is no way any of us can know where our life will go, and today’s guest took his life in a very different direction. Jay Shetty grew up thinking he would he an art director and loved design.

Podcast cover

Marriage is something that is so important to people. In fact, you probably thought about what your wedding would be like as a child. When people go into a marriage they think so much about their venue, their cake, their guest list -- but they never really think about what they are signing up for. Marriage is, legally, one of the most important things you can do. You are signing away half of your life. And there’s nothing wrong with that - if it’s the right person. On this episode of The School of Greatness, I brought on someone who knows so much about people being with the wrong person and how to set yourself up for a great marriage: NYC divorce attorney James Sexton. James has intentionally focused his practice on divorce and family law since his graduation from Fordham Law School. In addition to his Juris Doctorate (Law Degree) he has a Master of Arts degree from New York University where he focused his graduate research on the areas of persuasive speech and propaganda studies. To top it all off, James is the author of the incredibly informative book on marriage, If You’re in My Office, You’re Already Too Late. On this episode he discusses how a lot of people rush into a serious relationship without ironing out all of the details. He shares the insights he’s learned from thousands upon thousands of failed marriages. And he shared why he still believes marriage is a good idea. Learn all of the inside secrets to creating a successful marriage, on Episode 626. Some Questions I Ask: Have there been any clients that were going to get a divorce then decided not to? (9:28) What is the technology of marriage? (10:35) What training would you want people to go through before getting married? (17:12) How long were you married for? (23:24) Do you feel like when marriage gets rough that they should throw in the towel or work through it?

How you start and end your day matters. I get a lot of questions from listeners about what my morning routine, daily habits and nighttime routines look like. So I decided it was time to record a solo episode answering this exact question so that anyone who asks can get a quick answer :) The truth is, I believe that healthy, consistent routines make a massive difference in our daily performance and our long term health and happiness. So even though I'm not perfect at following mine every day, I know what a big impact it makes when I do.

Rank #10: Esther Perel: The Truth About Infidelity, Intimacy, and Love

Oct 11 2017
Podcast cover
Read more

Wow, I already know this is going to be another one of the most popular episodes on the podcast to date. The first time the queen of relationships, Esther Perel, came on the podcast, she blew me away with her insights about love and intimacy. (A few hundred thousand downloads of that episode later and I know I'm not the only one). So when she told me her new book was about infidelity and unpacking why people cheat (especially when it's on the people they still love), I knew it was going to be a powerful conversation. Esther spoke just last month at the second annual Summit of Greatness, and she was by far one of the most popular speakers. (People were booing me as I had to wrap up our Q&A because they wanted to hear more from her.) She has an incredible ability to speak the truth in a way that cuts you to the core and also makes you feel safe to explore topics we usually don't talk about.
