I’m Dr. Mark Goulston, and this is My Wakeup Call. Everybody has wakeup calls, but not everybody wakes up. In this podcast, we speak to people who did. In fact, they not only woke up, but their wakeup call changed their life, and changed how they would spend the rest of their life. In every case, the wakeup call was not pleasant, sought-after, and usually shook people to the core of their being. But in every case, it made our guests more authentic, better at life, better in life, and better human beings. I hope you will listen-in and become as inspired as I am from every episode. I also hope it will help you persevere if you are going through a wakeup call and haven’t yet gotten through the pain of it, or landed in your future as the better person you’re meant to be, with the better life that you’re meant to have.

I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for creating such an impactful podcast! I believe that we all have a voice that deserves to be heard. Thank you for putting this into the world! BE UNBROKEN! @MichaelUnbroken
Thanks for the wake-up!
Dr. Mark Goulston's "My Wakeup Call" is one of the best podcasts around. Wonderful guests involved in fascinating and insightful conversations, hosted by the master of listening (he, literally, wrote the book on it; check out his classic bestseller, "Just Listen"). I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to gain insight into how to be a better human...and a better leader.
Leading with vulnerability = powerful
Mark Goulston is a terrific host. He asks deep questions, listens carefully, and probes to go deep. The result is a powerful conversation that goes much further than most podcasts. Mark has a wealth of knowledge the he brings, and that provides context to his guests and informs his questions. This is a powerful, informative, and touching series.
