Hal Elrod is a #1 bestselling author, international Keynote Speaker, one of America’s top success coaches, ultra-marathon runner, grateful husband and proud father of two. All of this after being hit head on by a drunk driver at age 20 and found dead by EMS at the scene.

Despite being clinically dead for six minutes (!!), in a coma for six days with 11 broken bones, and being told he may never walk again, Hal defied the logic of doctors and the temptations to be a victim, and he bounced back to prove that ALL of us are capable of overcoming extraordinary adversity to create extraordinary results in our personal and professional lives.

But guess what... the accident and his recovery were NOT the biggest hurdle that he faced. That was still to come.

Listen in as Hal shares his wild ride with us, the lessons he learned, and the one practice that he started that became a revolution.

Neen James wants you to create more moments in life that matter.

Meet my rocking Aussie friend, Neen James. Neen is a professional speaker and leadership expert who teaches people how to achieve twice as much in half the time, so they can create more significant moments in life that matter. 

I wanted Neen to join us because - without fail - the number one excuse I hear (and make) from people (myself) when it comes to why they (we) are not meeting their (our) wellness goals is...

“I don’t have time” 

Whether it’s no time to cook real food, sleep, move your body, or anything other form of self-care, everyone can say – and can mean it! – “I don’t have time.” So, what’s the cure? Listen in and we’ll share that and more.

What we talk about:

  • Neen’s mantra on leading an Ah-Mazing life
  • How the little things we do have the greatest impact

"You have to CHOOSE to be extraordinary."

Dr. Nido R. Qubein came to the United States as a teenager with little knowledge of English, no network and $50 in his pocket. His life has been an amazing success story since.

He has been the recipient of dozens of honors including the Horatio Alger Award for Distinguished Americans (other recipients include Oprah, Denzel Washington, Condoleezza Rice). 

Dr. Qubein is in high demand to speak to business and professional groups around the world, and that is how I first met him almost 18 years ago (!!) as he was touring with professional development gurus Brian Tracy  and the late Zig Ziglar .

I was very lucky to have carved out this time to visit Dr. Qubein in his Presidential offices at High Point University in North Carolina, and to be able to listen to just a bit of the wisdom that he espouses on a life well-lived.

Listen as Dr. Qubein shares a lifetime of wisdom on how to live an extraordinary life - a life, he says, that is within reach for everyone, but not always reached for by everyone.

This episode is for anyone who has ever struggled with yo-yo dieting, wondered why counting calories didn’t work, or thought they could never cook for themselves – and, anyone who wants to hear the story behind the woman behind The Sane Show ☺

Carrie Brown made treats for the Queen of England and taught me how to cook. As cookbook author, photographer, blogger and co-host of the wildly successful podcast The Sane Show with Jonathan Bailor, Carrie is a master at making healthy eating a reality for those of us who are less talented in the kitchen. She learned from personal experience that diets don’t work, and she is ready to explain why and what to do instead! Spoiler alert: she wants you to eat more, but better, and exercise less, but smarter.

In this episode, I drill Carrie on how she went from a world-renowned pastry chef (making treats for the Queen of England!) to restaurant blogger, to advocate and voice-of-the-people for the *SANE lifestyle.

Things We Talk About…

- How Carrie gained weight, felt like a total hypocrite as a food blogger, and the circumstances that transformed her life

- Carrie’s personal experience with how frustrating and unsustainable the “calories in, calories out” methodology is

- The difference between losing weight and burning fat

- Ella’s revelation 2 years ago that cooking is easy if Carrie’s helping you. (If Ella can do it, you can, too!)

- How your bathroom scale is measuring the wrong thing

- How your body will regulate itself – so you can stop trying to control it

- Diets are stupid. Period.

- How to add / hide / cram loads of veggies to your diet without even realizing it

 

What Does *SANE Eating Mean, Anyway? 

*SANE is an acronym for determining how healthful a food is for us. In short, *SANE foods are very high quality, healthful foods and inSANE foods are low quality, unhealthful foods. *SANE eating means focusing on nutrient-dense foods containing water, protein, fiber, and whole-food fats. It generally means avoiding sugar of all kinds, grains, highly processed oils, many fruits, and starchy foods.

American Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez talks to us about mastering our inner Ninja first, how he's conquering life's obstacles and living his purpose to help others along the way.

“I had to start doing some self examination – who am I ? what am I doing?  

 Abel tells us:

  • How he left a great paying job in the oil industry to take a risk - waited in line for FIVE days - and ended up making history on NBC
  • What is was like going from “indestructible” to falling apart due to rheumatoid arthritis
  • What finally helped him overcome abandonment, anger and some pretty tough circumstances

You’re given an opportunity. A circumstance, yes, but an opportunity."

As Abel tells it: #WEAREALLABEL.
