    #35 | Living a Purpose Driven Life After Addiction | Adam Vibe Gunton

    Today on the podcast, we welcome author, speaker, and entrepreneur, Adam Vibe Gunton. Adam is the founder of Recovered On Purpose, and he's the author of the book From Chains to Saved.



    Through his book, TED talk and online presence, his story of addiction and recovery has reached millions of people worldwide.

    Now, as the founder and executive director of Recovered On Purpose, Adam lives by the affirmation, “I am the example of what is possible for an addict when they recover.” Adam shares how he started as a joyful young boy with straight A's and a promising athletic career before experiencing the depths of addiction, surviving an overdose that nearly took his life, and then finding his path to recovery.



    He shares a profound spiritual experience that solidified his faith and connected him with a larger vision for his life that led him to create his nonprofit, Recovered on Purpose, which now helps millions of people around the globe who struggle with addiction.

    #34 | How to Design a Strategic Personal Brand | Nadine Hanafi

    #34 | How to Design a Strategic Personal Brand | Nadine Hanafi

    Today, we welcome creative extraordinaire, Nadine Hanafi as she shares how she monetized her creativity using strategic visual design. She's an award-winning designer, creative entrepreneur, and founder of We Are Visual and Digital Brand Kit. Nadine believes that beautiful branding is not a vanity accessory. It's a growth catalyst. When you have beautiful strategic branding, showing up is not just easier, but it's more exciting. And that confident glowing energy that you get from having impeccable branding permeates through everything you do.



    Nadine is a master of personal branding. She's known for her incredible digital business strategy capacity and her visual storytelling. Her work focuses on helping online experts package their knowledge and uniqueness into irresistible brands.



    Nadine and I first met several years ago when we were both working for the personal brand strategy firm, Brand Builders Group, where she was leading creative direction.



    What I loved most about this conversation was something that Nadine said towards the end. She said that one of the things that she wished that she had known earlier was that the growth of her business and her external success in the world was dependent on how much internal growth she had done. When your external success exceeds the work that you've done internally, you can't continue to grow and evolve.



    So the fact that she would give herself advice about being more focused on internal wellbeing and personal growth and development, excavating the things that are keeping us small and amplifying the things that are magical and amazing about us, just endeared her that much more to me.



    To follow more of Nadine's journey, head over to nadinehanafi.com or Nadine.Hanafi on Instagram.

    #33 | Intuition vs Fear: My Multi-Million Dollar Lesson | Brooke Estin

    #33 | Intuition vs Fear: My Multi-Million Dollar Lesson | Brooke Estin

    In today's quick solo episode, I share a story of how my biggest client taught me to work with my intuition. It's the story of how I came to work with a client who I helped take from $0 to $3 million and how I learned to distinguish my intuition from my fear, and then identify past triggers I was bringing to the current situation that were keeping me playing small.



    Working with this multi-million dollar client helped me learn about my own intuition and how it can be harnessed to make better decisions in both my personal and professional life. It helped me better understand the space "where the woo meets the work".



    We explore the importance of translating intuition into action and creating structures that support intuitive decision-making.





    Takeaways


    Intuition is a valuable tool for making choices that are in alignment with one's true self.
    Deep contemplation and meditation can help connect with intuition and distinguish it from fear or past trauma.
    Translating intuition into action requires setting boundaries, communicating clearly, and being willing to walk away if necessary.
    Developing intuition involves practices such as silence, writing, and trying out different scenarios.
    Protecting and honoring oneself is essential in the process of connecting with intuition and making intuitive decisions.
    Combining intuition with practical work strategies can lead to positive outcomes and personal growth.

    #32 | How to Work With Evolutionary Intelligence | Emily Lane, Evolutionary Intelligence Academy

    Emily Lane is a futurist and founder of the Evolutionary Intelligence Academy. With a professional background in business, a near-death experience catapulted her into a 20-year quest for deeper meaning and purpose. Her journey led her to distill, explore, and apply some of the most leading-edge inner technologies of our world today. Emily works multi-dimensionally and she shares practical tools of evolutionary intelligence so that leaders and pioneers can solidify their clarity, purpose, and of course, their creative power.



    Emily consults on the birth and direction of evolutionary projects, and she shared the stage with luminaries from academia, the World Bank, the United Nations, and World Economic Forum, among many others.



    She's spoken in front of royalty, in front of governments, Silicon Valley executives, and thousands of pioneers around the world. She's been published by Mindful Leader and taught at the Omega Institute in New York. She was a founding partner of the groundbreaking Conscious Business World Summit and former host of the world's largest Mindfulness in Business Conference, Wisdom 2.0 in San Francisco.



    All of her work is infused with uplifting activation energy and of course, her Irish sense of humor. This comes through quite a bit in the podcast. Our conversation focused on the intersection of creativity, entrepreneurship, leadership and personal development.



    As woo or esoteric, as some of these ideas can feel at first, Emily is the master at making these concepts accessible, understandable, and actionable. In this conversation, she guides us through a step-by-step process to help us identify and connect with our inner guidance. This is part of what she calls connecting to evolutionary intelligence.



    We do this so that we can access that power to make practical decisions in our life and our work. Stay tuned to the end where Emily introduces her six week program for evolutionary leaders, which I very much look forward to participating in myself starting January, 2024.
