    607 - The Ultimate Guide to Leadership with SEALFIT founder, Mark Divine!

    Mark Divine, creator and founder of SEALFIT and The Unbeatable Mind Academy, and the author of Staring Down the Wolf: 7 Leadership Commitments That Forge Elite Teams, comes on to talk about how, more than ever, we all need to reach our potential and the techniques he learned in the SEALS, in the martial arts, and as an entrepreneur. Society has turned upside down. The true leaders will emerge and they will be the ones who can literally "stare down the wolf" while the rest are busy arguing mindlessly on social media.   

    We discuss things from the evolution of consciousness, to his daily practice, to how to directly turn pain into growth! Mark also talked about how he heard about the planned riots during the protest and what might be going on beneath the surface. Listen to the episode to learn from Mark Divine!

    606 - No STUPID questions with Stephen Dubner and Angela Duckworth

    My good friend Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics and host of the "Freakonomics Radio" podcast, has a new podcast called “No Stupid Questions” co-hosted by Angela Duckworth, author of Grit: The Power of Passion. So I “sat” down with both of them, and discuss some of the “non-stupid” questions that they have asked on their podcast! For example, what’s common between Tom Sawyer and the founder of Duo Lingo, does all creativity comes from pain, and what does it mean to be a hard worker? Listen to the episode and find out! 

    Check out their new podcast, “No Stupid Questions” on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you get your podcasts. Also on their website: https://freakonomics.com/nsq/

Jigarsingh ,

James is great at just what he does.

He is perfectly curious for interviewing and learning from people who he is interviewing so it makes a perfect juice of all this grind that he put himself through. It’s truly a go through and learn podcast everyone who is willing to learn should listen.

You make my running better

I’m done listening with music while running or walking since I’ve discovered your podcast now James. I take notes. I love the content. Each episode always gives some new ideas, some new stuff to think about, talk about and think about again. Planning to go though all episodes this entire year.
