    From SWAT Negotiator to Cancer Warrior: Terry Tucker's Journey of Resilience and Motivation

    In this compelling episode of the Be Well, Do Well podcast, I sit down with the extraordinarily versatile Terry Tucker—an author, motivational speaker, and relentless cancer fighter with a storied background spanning multiple professions, from SWAT team hostage negotiation to high school basketball coaching. Terry shares insights from his eclectic life experiences and how they've shaped his unique approach to facing life's challenges, particularly his ongoing battle with cancer.
    Terry discusses the transferable skills between seemingly disparate roles and how they've equipped him to handle personal adversities with a focus on impact and service to others. He opens up about his philosophy of listening to understand, rather than respond—a lesson from his days as a negotiator that he's applied throughout his life, including his coaching career. We also delve into his book, "Sustainable Excellence," exploring the ten principles that guide individuals toward leading uncommon and extraordinary lives. Terry's story is not just about facing life's toughest moments but thriving in them, making this episode a must-listen for anyone looking to be inspired to push through their boundaries.

    Hustle Hard or Chill Out? Finding the Right Weekend Work-Life Balance

    Hustle Hard or Chill Out? Finding the Right Weekend Work-Life Balance

    In today's episode, I discussed the pros and cons of entrepreneurs working weekends, especially when trying to achieve big goals.
    Some benefits of weekend work include getting ahead faster on a short timeline, showing commitment and hustle, having focused time without distractions, and being able to respond quicker to customers.
    However, there are downsides like potential burnout, lack of work-life balance, reduced creativity from no breaks, and not being sustainable long-term.
    I shared tips like setting specific weekend work hours, taking at least one full day off, batching similar tasks, and making time for fun activities.
    My key takeaway is that occasional weekend work can help make progress on ambitious goals, but you still need rest and balance to avoid burnout. It's important not to overdo it!
    I'm looking forward to bringing you more insights from remarkable entrepreneurs in tomorrow's episode.

    From Seinfeld to Jobs: Meditation’s Role in Excellence

    From Seinfeld to Jobs: Meditation’s Role in Excellence

    In today's episode of "Be Well, Do Well," I unveil the transformative power of meditation for entrepreneurs, showing how it can sharpen focus, ignite creativity, and quell the daily stress of business and parenting. Meditation isn't just spiritual fluff; it's a practical tool for mental clarity, endorsed by luminaries like Jerry Seinfeld, Oprah, and Steve Jobs. They didn't climb to the top by constant hustle alone; they paused, reflected, and meditated. I share how this practice can extinguish the "flaming torches" of our hectic lives, making space for breakthrough ideas and smarter decisions.
    Embarking on the meditation journey might seem daunting, especially with a packed schedule. Yet, I break it down into manageable steps, starting with just five minutes of focused breathing in a quiet spot. With personal anecdotes and tips, I explore accessible tools like the Headspace and Calm apps, and even the Muse headband for a tech-savvy approach. This episode is not just about theory; it's a call to action with a weekly meditation challenge. Join me in discovering how a few minutes of daily meditation can lead to a more relaxed, creative, and focused life, proving that if time can be found in Jerry Seinfeld's day for meditation, it can find a place in ours too.

    Winning at Life with Navy SEAL Tactics: Slow, Smooth, Fast

    Winning at Life with Navy SEAL Tactics: Slow, Smooth, Fast

    In today's episode of the Be Well, Do Well podcast, I dive into a fascinating concept borrowed from the world of Navy SEALs: "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast." Initially, it sounded counterintuitive to me—how could slowing down actually make us faster? Yet, as I unpack this wisdom, I'll show you how it's not just about the high-stakes world of elite soldiers but incredibly relevant to our lives as entrepreneurs and parents. Through personal anecdotes and practical applications, we explore the power of being methodical in our approach to both business challenges and the daily chaos of family life.
    Juggling the demands of entrepreneurship and parenting is no small feat. I share a personal story from a snowy day in Edmonton, Canada, to illustrate the consequences of not embracing this mindset. The episode breaks down how adopting a "slow is smooth" approach to preparation can prevent mistakes and create efficiency in our hectic schedules. Whether it's setting priorities, preparing for the day, or ensuring quality family time, the principles of being deliberate and focused can lead to smoother actions and, ultimately, faster outcomes. Join me as we apply Navy SEAL wisdom to thrive in our personal and professional lives, remembering that by slowing down, we actually speed up in achieving our goals.
