Episode 206: Is It OK to Ever Burn a Bridge?

Subscribe & Listen:

Is it okay to ever burn a bridge? Well, as I see it, that’s a dangerous move. You never know when you’re going to need someone in your life, even if in the present moment you think you don’t. So, the bigger your network, the better off you are.

Now… with that said, today Greg and I are going to reveal to you the one scenario when it’s actually okay to burn bridges (and we’ll tell you how to rebuild the bridges you’ve burnt in the past).

Episode 205: Planet of the Disruptors

Subscribe & Listen:

They’re everywhere – especially on social media. The disruptors. The people who want to come into your life and unload THEIR shit on YOU. We’ve literally become a planet of disruptors, and if you need any proof of that fact, look no further than your Facebook feed.

Well, today Greg and I are going to tell you how to steer clear of the disruptors for good. And, if you happen to be a disruptor, we’re gonna shed some light on why you feel the need to disrupt other people’s lives with all your negative energy.

So join Greg and I today by listening and subscribing to the podcast. Leave us a review in your podcatcher of choice, and feel free to disrupt other people’s lives with this podcast 😉 because it’s not really disruption when it’s radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 204: An All-Expenses Trip to Neuroticville

Subscribe & Listen:

We’ve all taken the all-expenses trip to neuroticville before. Why? Because we’re so outcome-oriented. We want what we want when we want it.

Well, today my guest Greg and I are going to take you off the road to neuroticville… and we’re going to put you on the road to present-ville. Because the key to peace, to NOT being neurotic, is exactly that: staying present.

So join us today if you want to hop on board the bus to present-ville, subscribe to the podcast and rate it in your podcatcher of choice, share it with your friends who need to hear it, and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 203: Why Modern Kids are Screen-Addicted Junkies

Subscribe & Listen:

I’ve gotta be honest. I’m pretty scared of what the future generation will look like. Kids are overweight, out of shape, addicted to sugar, and in fact addicted to all their screens – the phone, the tablet, the computer, the TV.

So today I brought my friend Greg on board, and we’re going to talk about how we got here, why kids are turning into screen-addicted junkies, and how we can stop the epidemic before it’s too late (HINT: it’s going to require something from you oh-so-wonderful parents out there).

So listen, subscribe and share today’s episode with all your parent friends. And if you’re a parent, PLEASE listen. Rate the podcast in your podcatcher of choice, and come back tomorrow for some more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 200: F*ck Dating! Embrace Romance Instead

Subscribe & Listen:

I took a survey on Facebook the other day: “Dating is (insert blank).” And the results were astounding. Everybody, it seems, hates dating. And if you do, too, well, this episode is especially for you.

Because I’m about to blow your mind right now. I’m going to give you a plan of action that will allow you to bypass all the boring dates, the conversations, and the swiping that leads to nothing.

Episode 199: How to Stand Someone Up (And Get Away With It…)

Subscribe & Listen:

My guest for the past week, Obi, has a confession he’d like to make today. He recently stood someone up for a date. Gasp! Yes, it’s true, but it was an honest mistake and he held himself accountable for it.

But it got us thinking – and this is today’s reality check – is standing someone up forgivable even if it’s on accident? What should you do if it happens? How should the other person react?

All of this and more is answered on today’s episode, so listen to it, subscribe to it, download and rate it, share it with your friends (including anyone who’s been stood up in the past) and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 198: I Was Broken Up With… Via Email!

Subscribe & Listen:

We are so mean to each other nowadays. And I’ll tell you a story to illustrate that fact: recently, I was broken up via email. Why is this so extreme? Because it wasn’t in person, and it would’ve been different if it had happened in person.

We hide behind our computer screens. We hide behind all our stories and programming and all the shit we have that we refuse to work on. So today, Obi and I are going to talk about how to get over all that shit. How to stand up and actually tell a person how you feel, face-to-face.

So listen to today’s podcast, subscribe to it, rate it in iTunes, share it with someone who’s been broken up via text or email (you DEFINITELY know that person!), and come back tomorrow for more radical self-help that doesn’t suck.

Episode 197: Planet of the Love Deniers

Subscribe & Listen:

Have you ever been in a relationship? Of course you have. But then, when it ends, do you deny all the beauty that was in it? You pretend it didn’t really happen that way. You were imagining it.

I’ve gotta tell you: there’s a world of people doing that. But right now, Obi and I are going to challenge you to have a different mindset. We’re going too challenge you to not deny your history, and to face it in all its beauty and ugliness.

So listen to today’s episode, subscribe to it, rate the podcast and be sure to share this with your friends, because there are so many people who NEED to hear this! And come back tomorrow for another daily dose of radical self-help that doesn’t suck.
