Episode 178: Jon Acuff – NYT Bestselling Author of 7 books and INC Top 100 Leadership Speaker
Jon Acuff is an NYT Bestselling Author of 7 books and INC Top 100 Leadership Speaker. He got people to "Start," taught them how to follow through and "Finish," and is now bringing people to the realization of their personal hang-ups and overthinking. "Soundtracks" is his new book and the basis of a lot of the conversation in this episode, those being about a mentality that plays on repeat in our head adjusting how we act and perceive the world, and how to adjust those "Soundtracks" to promote a more positive and affirming reality for ourselves. Jon is just full of fun and clever ways of approaching success and personal shortcomings. He also clearly "walks the walk" referencing many of the tools discussed by literally talking about his work graphs and alluding to little notes he's written himself. It's a fun episode and it's obvious he's given real thought to what he's saying with how effortlessly it seems to roll off his tongue. Are you notorious for getting in your own way? Maybe a chronic over-thinker, yourself? This is the one for you.Youtube Link to This EpisodeJon Acuff’s Website - https://acuff.me/Jon Acuff’s Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/jonacuff/

Challenged his dream and refocused to now becoming one of the greatest motivation coaches in the field.

Carl opens us into his world of never really being drawn to fitness or nutrition himself but having a calling as a "problem solver" which led him to try to tackle obesity and improve people's health. From the start, through the infomercials, paving the way for so much in the fitness space, all the way to the pandemic, and now, Carl is firm in his belief that Beachbody is just getting started.

This one's short and sweet and Tunde is very open about her way into fitness and health and how she became an instructor, and in part, a bit of a celebrity to those who know the brand.

Episode 174: Julia Haart – Bestselling Author, Fashion Designer, and star of Netflix’s ‘My Unorthodox Life’
Julia Haart is a self-made businesswoman, fashion designer and bestselling author. Building a shoe brand from nothing, not even knowing how to design shoes, guiding companies through the digital space with avatars and metaverse talk before most others knew it was a possibility, and generally having an attitude of "seeing what could be" instead of "what is." You'd think this episode with Julia was going to be strictly motivation and tales of success. You may not know Julia, then. From a life in a complicated and often strict religious community, finding her way out while keeping faith and opening up to find her liberation through business and her personal fulfillment, Julia is a spectacle of self-reflection and actualization. She shares everything talking through what it's taken to get where she is now. She just has an intense story all around that is captivating in its own right, but if you're interested in her business and how she used her lack of experience as a tool to combat an archaic industry, or her perseverance in having a company almost fail over and over again only to build it to where it is today. This episode is for you.Youtube Link to This VideoJulia Haart’s Book, Brazen - https://brazenbook.com/Julia Haart Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/juliahaart/
