Unlock Vitality through Craniosacral Fascial Therapy with Dr. Barry Gillespie

The things that trigger pain and discomfort in our bodies are sometimes quite clear, and other times vague and terribly frustrating, because traumas can go as far back as childbirth and even in utero. My guest today,Dr. Barry Gillespie is the creator of Craniosacral Fascial Therapy, or CFT. CFT is a merging of both craniosacral therapy and fascial release work, and it works on the Craniosacral Fascial System, which can become tight or restricted due to past injuries and trauma. This is an emerging field, and a really fascinating one. When we are tense or experiencing discomfort, we might go and get a massage, but that may only provide temporary relief because it isn’t addressing the root cause in the fascial web. Dr. Gillespie is truly a pioneer, and his life’s work has made a profound impact on many people’s quality of life, including a lot of infants, mine included. So without any further ado, let’s get on with the show!

Reinvent Yourself with UGG Founder Brian Smith

Doing a show that involves the retail industry and recording in the middle of coronavirus, we have to examine the obvious issue: just how this pandemic is affecting commerce – big business and small business alike, is still playing out. My guest today, Brian Smith may not be a household name, but his product is. All I have to say is – Ugg! Brian created the Ugg brand by-(not to make a bad pun)-bootstrapping it all the way.  In this episode, we talk about disruptions and how –though they may seem like insurmountable challenges at the outset, positive things can also come of monumental change. Brian has had to reinvent himself several times and sees change as something expected. Having that mindset has been so important because when faced with big changes he is prepared for it and rather than resisting, he rolls with it.  We talk about the importance of an idea going through changes and evolving into what it’s supposed to be—which isn’t always obvious at first, but with patience and perseverance that seed of an idea grows into (in Brian’s case) a multi-million-dollar industry. This really is a great opportunity to learn from someone who has so much to offer about business, and defining success on your own terms, so without any further ado, let’s get on with the show!

The Practical Kind of Productive with Darius Foroux

We live in a world of distractions—social media, phone calls, emails, and constant news updates on the new normal we’ve all been living with the last three or four months. The subject we’re delving into today is so relatable—whether you’re working at home for the first time, or you have an idea or a project you really want to start but you’re a little intimidated even knowing where to begin, time management and productivity are two things we all have to master. And my guest today, Darius Foroux is a master, as well as a teacher of productivity, habits, decision making, and personal finance. Over half a million people read his articles every month. His ideas have been featured in TIME, NBC, Fast Company, Inc., Observer, and other publications. We all have daily habits that center us—if you’re sporadic with habits you really will get a lot of benefit from this episode.  We talk about strategies to make working from home (or anywhere) productive and smooth. And what I really like is that the things he suggests aren’t set in stone in any way. They are suggestions which you can tweak to make work for you. I love his positivity and I think he has so much to add to this conversation that is so relevant to all of us right now, so without any further ado, let’s get on with the show!
