    Episode 149 - Derrick McManus - Courage to Achieve More Through Human Durability and Resilience

    Episode 149 - Derrick McManus - Courage to Achieve More Through Human Durability and Resilience

    Do you find it stressful when people say, "You need to be more resilient", without giving you any insight into how to do it? Would you or your team like to achieve more success with less stress?







    My guest today is the epitome of resilience. Help me welcome Derrick McManus – Human Durability and High-Performance Mental Health coach.







    Derrick is the Founder of the Australian Center for Human Durability. In a former life, Derrick was a police sniper, recovery diver and trained by the military SAS in counter-terrorist operations.







    During one police mission to serve a warrant and arrest a known criminal, Derrick was shot 14 times with a high-powered rifle and lay on the ground for 3-hours before being rescued. Doctors say he defied the odds to survive those massive injuries. Derrick, better than anyone else, knows the importance of psychology and the dynamics of mental fitness, agility, and strength.







    Human Durability is about going beyond resilience to sustaining optimal performance with less stress. Everyone improves with Human Durability training.







    You can learn more about Derrick's programs on his website: https://humandurability.com.au/. You can also connect with Derrick and follow him on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/derrickmcmanus/

    Episode 147 - Jermane Cheathem - Courage to Grow and Never Be Stagnant

    Episode 147 - Jermane Cheathem - Courage to Grow and Never Be Stagnant

    Jermane Cheathem is a self-described “minimalist entrepreneur that has created financial freedom by doing less.







    Jermane grew up in a broken home; abandoned, scared, fearful. His life changed when he discovered sports and found his competitive spirit. Jermane never looked back.







    Jermane went into sales determined to win. He set company sales records yet felt empty looking at the commission checks. How could he contribute so much value to the company and be paid so little? He knew then that he was playing the wrong game and decided to become an entrepreneur.







    Now, after perfecting his business model and completing tens of millions in funded transactions, Jermane is on a mission to empower sales professionals to become financially independent by doing less; working smarter, not harder. Jermane enjoys the freedom of working from anywhere in the world and joins us today from Turkey.

Kodis ,

Great Host with Insightful Questions

I had the pleasure of being on Harlan’s podcast. He’s an excellent host with a wonderful demeanor and his questions bring out insightful and though-provoking answers. Even though the podcast was an hour it felt like it was only 15min. I would highly recommend this podcast for anyone who’s looking for more than your average podcast pablum.
