    JOHN OATES: Realigning your priorities and finding your voice

    JOHN OATES: Realigning your priorities and finding your voice

    How did John Oates, one of the most successful musicians in rock history and one-half of famed duo Daryl Hall & John Oates, find his voice as a writer?

    And how did giving up most of his possessions, starting fresh in a cabin in Aspen and reinventing himself factor into all of it?

    In this in-depth conversation, we discuss how John manifested his visions and how he let go of many of his rock star proclivities during a time of personal growth and transformation that led him to an even richer life outside the glare of the spotlight.

    Sit back and enjoy as John Oates shares his story with us.

    GETTING IN TOUCH WITH YOUR INTUITION & CREATING A SOUL-ALIGNED, CONSCIOUS BUSINESS WITH MEL NAHAS

    How can synchronicities, carving out a space for yourself and a bit of good fortune turn into a thriving, soul-aligned business?

    How can you use human design to help you get where you want to go with more joy and ease?

    These are questions I explore with Mel Nahas, cofounder of Conscious City Guide, an online platform that produces, promotes & tickets experiences for the conscious community.

    Born in Indonesia and raised in Australia, Mel came to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the music industry. She ended up pivoting and embarking on a mission to expand consciousness through events & experiences as co-founder of Conscious City Guide.

    During our conversation, Mel shares about her entrepreneurial journey, challenges she’s encountered and overcome along her path & how she uses tea ceremonies to connect with her inner compass & guidance. We discuss the nature of consciousness and how it reconnects you to yourself, your community and the planet, and her mission to bring consciousness into the mainstream. We also talk about a recent trip Mel took to Egypt and some amazing synchronicities that happened while she was there.

    Renowned builder/architect/designer Scott Hamilton Harris on following your intuition, learning how to create a home that soothes your soul and why we don’t talk about the Jedi mind.

    Renowned builder/architect/designer Scott Hamilton Harris on following your intuition, learning how to create a home that soothes your soul and why we don’t talk about the Jedi mind.

    Scott Hamilton Harris is considered one the foremost building contractors in the U.S. and a “triple threat” who’s an expert in design, architecture & building. He’s built and restored numerous luxury homes and commercial properties, including building famed eco-friendly and sustainable homes for celebrity clients such as Ed Begley Jr. and Hollywood directors, renovating Los Angeles landmarks as well as co-founding the Building Construction Group in 2005.

    When Scott was just five years old, he became fascinated by how things were built and put together. He started taking apart & rebuilding common household items and secretly visited building sites as a teenager to see how they did things and to get ideas of how they could be done better and as an attempt to improve a difficult childhood by creating a beautiful living environment for his family.

    Scott is an incredible example of how, when you decide to follow your passion, you can create a thriving career getting paid to do something you love and living out your dharma, or your higher purpose in life.

    He also uses intuition to help clients build their dream homes and as an effective way to gain new clients, which he tells us all about in this conversation. We also talk about how a synchronicity that was a wrong number ended up leading to a multi-million dollar client and much more.

    TRISHES on social activism & how the encouragement of just one person can change the trajectory of your life.

    TRISHES on social activism & how the encouragement of just one person can change the trajectory of your life.

    Musician, visual artist and social activist Trish Hosein, also known as TRISHES, was raised in Trinidad until she moved to Southern California when she was in elementary school and her life changed forever. Her upbringing and the strong sense of self that was instilled in her by her parents helped give her the confidence to pursue a career in art and music, even though she didn't see many people who looked like her as a woman of color doing what she aspired to do when she was growing up.

    Now a confident and prolific artist in many mediums, Trish discusses her journey to becoming the incredible artist she is today, the good causes she supports, how she got involved with them and how easy it can be for anyone to get involved in causes they're passionate about. We also talk about how the encouragement of just one person can change the trajectory of your entire life.

    TRISHES’ music has been featured on NPR, MTV India, and VH1 India and she’s performed at festivals including SXSW, Tune In Tel Aviv, Linda Perry’s Rock N Relief, Pyramid Yoga Festival and more. She was nominated for Best Music Video at the South Asian Film Festival two years in a row, including a nomination for her directorial debut for “Gaslight.”

    Annika Rose on finding strength in hard times.

    Annika Rose on finding strength in hard times.

    Annika Rose is a gifted singer/song writer from Los Angeles. Annika started singing in YouTube videos when she was just eight years old, and ended up signing to Simon Cowell’s record label with a girl group in her pre-teens. After being dropped from the label and navigating some of the perils and pitfalls of the music industry at a very young age, she’s building a thriving career as an independent artist.

    Annika’s story is unlike anyone else’s. Her mother identified as a lesbian when Annika was a teenager, divorced her father and ended up marrying Annika’s much-younger manager. Meanwhile, during pandemic lockdown, Annika was taking a mental health walk one morning on Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles and got hit by a truck and ended up in the hospital. Also, her father was diagnosed with a serious illness and ended up moving in with Annika’s mother and her new wife who cared for him along with Annika.

    Through all of the ups and downs of these rollercoaster experiences, Annika maintained tremendous optimism, learned valuable life lessons and became more determined than ever to make music on her own terms.

    She’s releasing singles including “Bruises” and “In My Head” as limited collection audio NFTs and creating accompanying videos and virtual experiences.

    Hear all about it in our conversation!
