When I was in Peru on my Give & Grow retreat this past October, I had the pleasure (and challenge) of sitting down and exploring the lives and dreams of 3 orphan boys who volunteered to speak on camera. These conversations were unscripted, unedited and unexpected in more ways than one. They were difficult conversations to ignite as these boys were shy, withdrawn and unsure at times. When I delve into their stories I can see why. One boy watched his father kill his mother, and for years wanted to grow up and kill his father. Then there are moments of openness, insight, wisdom and overwhelming joy as one of the boys dreams of growing up and coming back to take over the very orphanage he is in. I know I grew as a result of their stories and maybe you can to. Please be patient with the audio quality and my on the fly questions as I was given about 15 minutes to set up and shoot on the day. Conversation #1     Conversation #2     Conversation #3     If you enjoyed these three conversations with these amazing orphan boys from Peru and feel compelled to share, feel free to do so.   If you’re interested in joining us in India later this year for the next Give & Grow retreat, you can learn more here....

“The ultimate spiritual journey is the one taken into your own soul.” I recently had the privilege of being interviewed by an incredibly insightful 11 year old schoolgirl named Maddy. Her questions were tough and covered a variety of great topics I thought were worth sharing with you: Why I do the work that I do My personal heros My personal goals Significant events that have happened in my life The experiences surrounding the work we do with children in the orphanages How I “check-in” with myself to make sure I’m still on the right track Advice for my children Social entrepreneurship And more Maddy was kind enough to let me share this interview with you. Enjoy…and PLEASE SHARE!...

Recently I was given the honor to speak in front of a room full of entrepreneurs in Toronto at an event called ‘Mastermind Talks’. This even was put on by a fantastic soul named Jayson Gaignard, whom I’ve come to really respect the more time I have spent getting to know him. Jayson gave me the opportunity to speak to his community for an entire hour (the first time he’s ever let anyone do so one of his stages) about the subject of ‘Authentic Goal Setting’. He was nice enough to record the entire talk so that I could share it with our clan. Enjoy… To find out more about Jayson Gaignard and his Mastermind Talks, please visit his...

“Your ability to get in touch with, listen and trust your intuition will determine the authenticity of your life.” My work consists of mentoring others across a variety of aspects in their lives: relationships, work and self. And I do this in a handful of ways, from group business coaching programs, to experiential retreats, to intimate live events, to private 1-on-1 mentorship discussions. On rare occasions, I have held private one-off calls with people I meet a long the way. This is one I did with Jason Connell (founder of Ignited Leadership) where we focused on the subject of intuition – and for some reason (intuition?) we decided to record it. And when it was all said and done, we were both extremely glad we did, as this conversation uncovered some unexpected thoughts and ideas around intuition that I believe anyone wanting to learn more can value from listening in. In this discussion we explored (amongst other things…): Why after achieving a goal, it often feels like an empty accomplishment (hint, it’s not about the actual accomplishment) Why positive thinking, in isolation of emotional feeling, can be detrimental Why what YOU feel is the only truth that matters (and how to change it for the better) What the inhibitors of intuition actually are, and how to break through them How to uncover, cultivate and nurture your own personal intuitive clarity Why it’s important to lean into and get to know your fears, rather than trying to hide from them Jason was very vulnerable and authentic on this call, and I respect him greatly for his courage to do so … and I trust that after listening in, you will too. Enjoy… If you liked listening in to this private conversation and feel like someone else might too, by all means please feel free to share it and pass it...

“When you shift your value, everything else follows.” In this edition of the Limitless Business Podcast, Scott Oldford and Kaye Putnam from @GoInfinitus chat with me about what it truly means to be successful in your life. In this episode you’ll learn (amongst other things…): You don’t have to wait until you have money to be happy We don’t have the relationships that we think do: not with others, not with ourselves The biggest stumbling block to being happy is ‘needing to know’ how to be happy You need to be able to face your own reality Why 99% of people have an issue with money… and why most people don’t step back to recognize it What matters is ‘WHY?’ – when you know that you know what’s driving your engine “Our whole definition of what success is, is completely and utterly screwed” People typically don’t know who they are Improve the value someone has of themselves and everything else will improve The biggest ‘bully’ that we face everyday is the one in the mirror And a whole lot more… Enjoy… If you liked what you heard in this podcast, feel free to share it and pass it...

People are always looking for the ‘secret’ to achieving more happiness in life. I believe there is no secret. Achieving more happiness is the resulting bi-product of being at peace with yourself and living a meaningful life full of purpose. How does one live a meaningful life? It’s different for each of us, and only you personally hold the key to unlock that answer for yourself. While on my latest Give & Grow experience, I asked a mountain guide in the Peruvian Andes how he finds happiness and this was his simple, but powerful...
