Rewired Mind is about helping you realize that everyone has a different path to success and a very different way to operate in business. Allen Plunkett, host of Rewired Mind Podcast sits down with real industry leaders to talk about how they rewired their thinking and adopted their different way - and how they built (or rebuilt) their organizations around those concepts and beliefs.
Kirk Nurmi: From Public Scruitny and Cancer to Happiness
When people go to describe this guest on Rewired Mind, they may want to say attorney, speaker, author etc. but Kirk Nurmi would just like to simply be known as a human being.
He famously was the defense attorney in the Jodi Arias trial, which lasted from January 2013- April 2015. He faced threats and public scrutiny, leading him to step away from law and was diagnosed with cancer as a result of the pressure from the trial.
As a result of the cancer, Kirk changed his focus to make his happiness a priority.

Candice shares her journey of working at the highest levels in the corporate world to now being the Director of a non-profit.
Her rewired moment came one evening at dinner. She heard a voice that led her to believe, finally, that she should be making decisions for herself rather than others to do so on her behalf.
“Whatever pain you experience can be power to create the life you want”. This quote fits the story of Luke Kayyem, a performance life coach and corporate leadership consultant. He shifted his focus to specific things after having a fixed mindset for most of his life.
