    #174 Kobe Bryant Tribute: What You Can Learn from Kobe about Life, Business, & Personal Development w/ Rajiv Nathan

    After the tragic passing of NBA Legend Kobe Bryant, I received a text from my friend and 4x Live Different Podcast guest Rajiv Nathan who was just as distraught over our hero’s passing as I was… Today we decided to get together to share some lessons learned from Kobe both on and off the court.
    Kobe Bryant was not only an Olympic and 5x NBA champion but an incredible ambassador to the game, and responsible for its growth on a global scale.  Beyond basketball, he was an investor, family man, coach, writer, producer, and more.
    Please enjoy this co-produced podcast with Rajiv Nathan, which also appears on the Startup Hypeman Show.
     
    Known as the Heavyweight Champion of Story, Rajiv 'RajNATION' Nathan is Founder of Startup Hypeman, helping startups not suck at pitching and telling their story so they stand out to customers and investors and stand apart from competitors. He was named an "Agent of Change" by Huffington Post, has given a TED Talk, and been featured in Inc, Forbes, and more. He's also a hip hop artist, yoga instructor, and host of the popular show Startup Hypeman: The Podcast.

    #173 Receive $1000 per month from US Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang and his Freedom Dividend

    #173 Receive $1000 per month from US Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang and his Freedom Dividend

    Andrew Yang is a serial entrepreneur, author, and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. In 2011, he founded the non-profit Venture for America, with the mission “to create economic opportunity in American cities by mobilizing the next generation of entrepreneurs and equipping them with the skills and resources they need to create jobs.”
    Andrew who began his career as a corporate attorney also wrote the books Smart People Should Build Things and The War on Normal People. In the latter, he detailed the massive employment crisis that’s already underway and how the shift can affect tens of millions of Americans. He also laid out what he believes is a roadmap to a better future and it starts with the Freedom Dividend, a Universal Basic Income of $1000 a month for every American adult aged 18 to 64.
    Because of his extensive work and contribution, Yang was named as a Champion of Change by the Obama White House in 2012. In 2015, the Obama White House again acknowledged him as a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship (PAGE) alongside Steve Case, Tory Burch, Daymond John, and many others.
    This week’s episode talks about what Universal Basic Income is and how it actually affects people, how the policy can encourage innovation among young people, and how Universal Basic Income broadens the definition of work.
    Andrew also shares how VAT tax brings in money to the American government, what a political revolution is and why it’s actually feasible, and the reason he’s running for president.
    For people who are skeptical about the value Universal Basic Income offers, Andrew has this to say, “This is very pro-work. That’s the biggest thing that people get wrong.” #yanggang

    #172 The Problem with our Food Supply, How to Overcome It, & Reach Our Potential w/ Teri Cochrane, The Wildatarian

    #172 The Problem with our Food Supply, How to Overcome It, & Reach Our Potential w/ Teri Cochrane, The Wildatarian

    (While eradicating cancer and neurodegenerative disease from our planet!)
    Teri Cochrane is an integrative practitioner, certified coach, herbologist, function nutritionist, founder of the Cochrane Method, and author of the Wildatarian Diet: Living as Nature Intended.
    Teri specializes in getting people to their potential and my conversation with Teri will definitely help you get to the next level.  It’s full of both big-picture ideas to make you a better thinker and decision-maker while getting down to actionable steps that you can take to improve your health.
    We keep this episode very “consumer-friendly” so an everyday person can listen in and find out: 
    How to become better at systems thinking, decision-making, and become a “solution seeker.” 
    How Teri’s background managing a billion dollars as a risk manager for a Fortune 50 company led her to produce a systems mindset and create the Cochrane Method.  She even gives tips on how you can become a better systems thinker using your own personal algorithm.
    Why Terri believes “the thought creates the thing,” and that “diet is everything we consume in life.”  (Not just food!) Teri addresses the concept of “intuitive eating” and...
    How you can create an intuitive practice to make better decisions and how to listen to your intuition rather than fear. 
    We go into the issues with today’s food supply and how through healing ourselves, we can heal the planet.  
    Foods you can find in the grocery store and meals you can prepare in five minutes that adhere to Teri’s Wildatarian approach! 
    Did you know that 45% of young people aren’t healthy enough to qualify for the military?  Our health is now becoming a national security issue.  
     
    Nerd Alert! 
    Listen to the end where Teri drops some serious knowledge on how amyloids in industrialized meat are causing tremendous viral and fungal load on our bodies, contributing to biofilms, and eventually cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.   That’s right, Teri believes these things are metabolic diseases and that beta-amyloid plaques are just a symptom of Alzheimer’s, not the cause! 
    This is cutting edge science here, and a theory we are thrilled to be getting out to the world! 
     
    Books Recommended: 
    The Wildatarian Diet: Living the Way Nature Intended
    Biology of Belief (not mentioned but you should read it!)
     
    Additional Podcasts you could listen to Terry on: 
    Bulletproof

    Foods recommended: 
    Apple cider vinegar
    Mold free spices like rosemary, oregano, thyme, etc. 
    BPA free, wild caught salmon from Thrive Market
    My order from US Wellness Meats

    Mary’s Crackers

Matt

Listening to Matt is different. He asks questions but he also offers his own perspectives and view based on his own experiences. You get 2 perspectives at the same time. Especially enjoyed the podcast with AJ Vaynerchuk as Matt offers a positive energy and safe environment to cover almost any topic from health to business. Matt offers great energy from a guy who clearly knows himself and wants to help others achieve their own personal journey. Much appreciated.
