The national best-selling author Christopher Tuff is the Executive Director of Partnerships & Growth at one of the longest established advertising firms in the world, 22Squared, where he nurtures the organization’s relationships with massive clients such as Nike and Home Depot. Chris is a dear friend, inspiration, and guide. After undergoing some deep work and deconstructing his life, Chris realized the power of cultivating genuine connections, an insight he wrote about in his book The Millennial Whisperer: The Practical, Profit-Focused Playbook for Working With and Motivating the World’s Largest Generation.
Chris’s forthcoming book, Save Your Asks, is expected to be released in October 2021.

He discusses the role of sobriety and his choice to become sober in service of his purpose and higher self.

He discusses what “identity alchemy” is and describes the steps we can take to purposefully curate the different containers of our lives. He explains what our white rabbits are, what it takes to follow it down their rabbit hole, and why so many people do not respond to the calling of their highest selves.
SOULisode Rebelling FOR Radical Self Commitment
In this episode, I discuss the importance of rebelling FOR self-commitment, what it means, and how it’s different from (and bigger than) self-care. In fact, it’s an umbrella concept that encompasses self-care and invites us to take that commitment a few steps deeper in our lives. I share an excerpt from Mark Nepo’s The Book of Awakening and discuss what it made me realize about how I’ve been taking care of myself (or not) amidst a recent family crisis.
Rebel for Life!
Love Shelley’s passion for life, the way she stands up for self and the wisdom she teases out of her guests! The entire concept of Soulbbatical is fresh and sorely needed as leaders dig deep to face an incredible set of challenges in 2020 and beyond!
What a great discovery!
Shelley has accomplished so much, and has great wisdom to share, and yet she’s so down to earth and relatable. I love her curiosity about life and learning. She’s that rare person, I’d want to sit next to on a flight to New Zealand. I’m excited to continue learning about her journey.
I love this podcast! Shelley has such an inner wisdom and inner fire that is both relatable and inspirational. Whether she’s talking to us, the listener, or in conversation with her guest, I leave each podcast feeling hopeful, empowered and more appreciative of these journeys we are on.
