How to Go from Victim to Invincible with Brian Martin

This is an important episode and it probably affects people you care deeply about including yourself, I bet. After all, we've all been through some childhood trauma and what they say is, “What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger,” and as pervasive as domestic violence is, it's never okay. The victims aren't just those who were directly targeted by the perpetrators. The collateral damage always includes the kids, even if their exposure was as a “witness only.” This is called Childhood Domestic Violence or CDV. Our guest is Brian F. Martin. He is not only a successful entrepreneur who's been involved with many high-profile brands in the executive level, including Adweek, Pfizer and Walmart, he's also a passionate advocate for children who have been affected by domestic violence.He founded an amazing nonprofit, the Childhood Domestic Violence Association and shared his own harrowing story of growing up with domestic violence in the powerful book, Invincible. The foreword of that book was written by Tony Robbins, who is also deeply affected by domestic violence. We'll be taking a deep look into the causes, effects and solutions to this disturbing phenomenon. We'll also be talking about PTSD and trauma more broadly and how people can overcome negative experiences in their own lives. I was touched by this too and I'll be going into this in the episode. How do you then work towards fulfillment and success? How do you blossom? If you've ever faced real adversity in your life or know someone who has, especially in their childhood, you’ve got to read this episode.

Your Brain, Unleashed! With Wynford Dore

Tragically, we seem to be facing an epidemic in brain diseases from autism, Alzheimer's, dyslexia and attention deficit disorder. This didn't use to be the case. Is it environmental toxins, vaccines, some epigenetic trigger? One thing we can all agree on is that treating these disorders like ADD, ADHD, autism, Asperger’s and so on with drugs from Big Pharma is not ideal. What if there was another way? According to my guest, Wynford Dore, these and many other learning difficulties like dyslexia can be treated by personalized training that gets to the root of the problem rather than focusing on the symptoms. Wynford is a serial entrepreneur whose latest business sold in 2011 for a nine-figure sum, but that isn't what lights him up. He wants to change the world one brain at a time. His ventures include the withZING Brain Development program and a world-renowned private school in England.While Wynford’s work has primarily been on children with learning disabilities, many of his discoveries about learning and the brain are applicable to adults. This journey to the brain started for Wynford with his daughter’s attempted suicide. Wynford had to solve his daughter's learning issues. Her very life depended on it. You'll be relieved to know that she's happy and thriving now. Wynford is passionate about sharing his research team’s great breakthroughs in transforming the skills lacked by those with ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger's and autism. These methods are so good that elite athletes and sports teams are using them.

Steal These Leadership Strategies with Scott Eck

Do you want to be a better leader? Then it's time you join the theater. My guest for this episode number 170 is Scott Eck, Founder and CEO of Leadership Masters. A company that creates leadership theater experiences for Fortune 100 clients such as Coca-Cola, 3M, Boeing, State Farm and Lockheed Martin. You may be wondering what theater has to do with leadership. It's all based on an idea called sociodrama, developed by a student of Freud's years ago. By roleplaying key figures in high stakes situations such as the British government during World War II or the African National Congress during the trial of Nelson Mandela, Scott is able to completely immerse the students in extraordinary circumstances to help them understand the actions and behaviors of great leaders firsthand. Learning in this way can affect deep personal change and develop leadership and communication skills in a way that's not possible in more conventional approaches to education.I got to know Scott at one of Doug Allen's masterminds where we both were speakers. If the name Doug Allen is familiar to you, it may be because he was also a guest on my other podcast, Marketing Speak. I have to say, if you aren't listening to Marketing Speak, you are missing out on a free university-level education in marketing. It is fantastic and yes, I'm biased. Prepare as Scott reveals some profound insights into behavior change, education and leadership. In the process, I bet you're going to learn how to facilitate true innovation in your organization.
