Joe Trimboli - Survivor, Realistic Optimist, Mindset Coach and the founder of the 5 a.m Wake up call
An amazing conversation with Joe or as they call him Pep. He calls himself a realistic optimist. He has a passion for helping others through his own awakening in his own life. Joe has battled cancer, rebuilt his mind to become a solid foundation as the basis towards his success.
Joe remembers him battling all the negative energy he brought to himself and it was not until the age of 40 where he realized he needed a mind shift. He was coached by the likes of Bob Proctor and his team, and began to learn and listen to his voice inside his head.
Once he began to sponge in so much knowledge from books and practicing what he preaches, Joe wanted to pay this message forward. Starting from a group of a few, it grew to what many all know as the 5 a.m. Wake up call.
Yes, waking up at 5 a.m. each morning with a bunch of strangers who in the latter have become an amazing community. Reading, reflecting and growing together. Such a great movement that will inevitably bring an amazing energy.
Connect to Joe on the 5 a.m. Wake up Call or connect with him at www.joetrimboli.com.
This is a podcast you must listen to too.
Giovanni Bartolomeo - Breathwork, Awakening and the ability to Surrender
Giovanni Bartolomeo has a unique story and is on this continuous journey towards living. It began his early years, going down a path of certainty towards the social norms of success. Achieving a high level status in education, attending one of North America's top business schools and living the life of what society encourages as a climbing road. As a young entrepreneur, he realized something was missing. There was a whole in his soul and then it all began.
Going to the jungles of Brazil to drink a liquid to bring your spiritual connection to another level, or walking in the mountains with Wim Hof himself, Gio as some call him was destined for something more. He gave up his path towards financial success and allowed himself to surrender to what the universe had destined for him.
Have a seat and listen to this inspirational journey of Gio and his discovery of breathwork and his realization that we all must surrender to life's purpose.
