Season 2, Episode 291: Sage Lee – Business Coach and Headmaster for The School for Wizards

Today’s guest is Sage Lee. As a child, Sage emerged as an artist. It was the closest thing that he could do to honor the oddness that was he. He didn’t fit into the world of his peers. He wasn’t interested in dating, sports, or academics really (except for a narrow group of things that interested him.)

If there had been a school for wizards back then, he would have enrolled immediately.

His list of accomplishments include being an Art Director and Brand Strategist for international Fortune 500 companies, teaching design at the University of California, creating award-winning work in the art field, including a show at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Yet, all the while he knew there was a greater calling that was pulling him along, influencing everything he did.

This all lead Sage to create and become the headmaster of the School for Wizards, where he helps teach the science of magic to business owners looking for the next level they know is not going to come from business coaching alone.

You can find out more about Sage at www.TheSchoolForWizards.com.

Season 2, Episode 285: Don Larson – Founder & CEO of the Sunshine Nut Company & Author

Today’s guest is Don Larson. The Founder & CEO of the Sunshine Nut Company and author of The Sunshine Approach, Don is a visionary leader with a “quadruple bottom line” business: adding a transformational bottom line to the financial, environmental and social bottom lines of corporate social responsibility.

Don has over 25 years of experience in the food processing industry and was an executive for The Hershey Company. After leaving Hershey he built a cocoa processing plant for a group of private investors, where he was eventually promoted to acting-CEO, delivering a plant that produced $100 Million per year. The factory was the largest, fully automated cocoa processing line in the world.

In 2011, Don and his family left their lifestyle of abundance and material wealth for one of purpose. They sold nearly everything they owned – a big house with a swimming pool, luxury cars, and a hot air balloon – and poured their life savings into Sunshine Nut Company. Don and his wife Terri and their youngest son, relocated to Africa – away from their daughter in college and son in his last year of high school. They are now living in Mozambique – one of the world’s poorest countries.

Season 2, Episode 279: What’s Stopping You?!?

Is that voice in your head holding you back?

In today’s topical content episode, Michael digs into what stops us – what does the little voice in our head say that keeps us from taking action and stepping into our full potential.

It may be saying that “you’re not good enough”, or “you don’t know enough”, or “who are you to think you can?” – but none of those things are true. If you have a gift to give to the world, then it’s your responsibility to deliver it.

Don’t let small-minded, righteous people stand in the way of you delivering your message any more than you would allow your own thoughts to get in the way. If you want to make a difference in the world – make a big one.

Season 2, Episode 256: The Dark Side of Abundance

Do you over-compensate for your lack of abundance?

In this topical content episode, Michael looks at our propensity to run an abundance compensation routine. We frequently over do it in one aspect in our life in order to make up for our lack of abundance in another. This could work in any order (too much money – not enough love, not enough money – too much eating, etc.), but is a typical sign of something being out of balance in our lives.

Michael doesn’t set out to resolve any of these issues but to draw our attention to it as a “red flag” – a note to self, to pay attention and try to bring things back into an equilibrium, thus allowing abundance to flow evenly.

Season 2, Episode 242: Nezha Alaoui – Photographer, Lifestyle Designer, Motivational Speaker

Today’s guest is Nezha Alaoui. Although it’s between New York and the desert that Nezha most frequently absorbs and digests her creations, she enlarges her territory to the most unexpected places in the world, seeking inspiration in cultural diversity, human interactions and artistic encounters.

In what she calls her bubble, she navigates between textures, shapes and colors using her photographer’s eye to sharpen her sense of esthetics and apply it to her lifestyle designs.

Nezha also reaches out to an international women’s community, as a motivator, through her blog and her empowerment group, Mayshad Woman Club, with a strong message for women to “Be who they want to be”.

A movement that inspires women to accept themselves as they are and embrace the different aspects of their lives with love and passion in order to achieve their goals and dreams.

You can learn more about Nezha at the Mayshad Woman Blog.

Season 2, Episode 234: A Conscious Approach to Disability in the Military

For this topical content episode, Michael is joined by Marty Klein. You may remember him from Season 1, Episode 76. Marty was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1948, and lost his eyesight while serving with the U.S. Air Force in 1974. This disability did not stop him, as he then went on to write several books, co-founded the Namaste Yoga Center, and co-produced an instructional video series “Beginning Yoga for the Blind and Visually Impaired”.

You can find out more about Marty and support his efforts at www.WhyCantWeServe.com or www.HatchFund.org.
