Being An Idea Hero with Neale Donald Walsch
In this episode of the Get Loved Up Podcast, Koya Webb talks to Neale Donald Walsch, book author, screenwriter, and public speaker. After suffering a series of blows to his life in the early 1990s Neale found himself homeless and barely scraping together to survive. In his anger, he started calling out to God, initially in anger, through writing. These series of notes would become the nucleus for his bestselling book Conversations with God.
Neale talks about the idea of pure love, and why God should be viewed as a God of pure love. He gives powerful insight on why our contemporary idea of God might be wrong, and how changing it could solve a lot of humanity’s greatest ills today.

Believing In Yourself & Tuning Out Negativity with Nemanja Golubovic
In this episode of the Get Loved Up Podcast, Koya Webb talks to renowned restaurateur behind Kale My name, Nemanja Gulobovic. Growing up in the small country of Montenegro, Nemanja knew he was meant to go out there and make a name for himself.
He started his journey by applying for scholarships abroad and eventually was able to study in Mexico. Not long after, he started traveling around the world by securing a job with Qatar Airways. He first came to the United States by landing in Chicago, where he got married and found success as an entrepreneur. He opened Kale My Name, a vegan restaurant that has since expanded to Los Angeles, California via a partnership with actress Tabitha Brown.
Nemanja’s life has been literally quite a journey. Besides traveling across the world, he also found himself to have transformed many times, from coming to terms with his sexuality to embracing veganism. He brings with him his message of positivity and hope for a brighter future, and to never give up on your dreams.
