This is the story of a lifelong seeker. It’s about organizing your life around spiritual principles. Breaking the addiction to external validation. And always having the courage to fail.Meet Blake Mycoskie.Quite the change maker, Blake is most famously known as the founder of the wildly successful shoe company TOMS. He also pioneered the ‘One for One’ business model, donating a pair of shoes to a child in need for each pair sold. In turn, he sparked a generation of conscious consumers — and rebranded corporate responsibility as not only cool, but de rigueur.But Blake’s story neither begins nor ends with TOMS. A natural-born entrepreneur, Blake started 5 other businesses before TOMS. And he’s since moved on from his shoe empire to launch Madefor — a ten-month program that applies key principles of modern neuroscience, psychology, and physiology to make your brain and body better.This is more than the story of an incredible entrepreneur. It’s about navigating the world through a spiritual lens. And the power of commitment to persistent personal growth.It’s less about TOMS and more about the kind of person that imagines TOMS. It’s about intuition. The stewardship required to scale an idea into a global phenomenon — and the ongoing commitment to service that led to Madefor.Blake is a very special human. It was an honor to finally spend some time with him. And a delight to share the experience with you.The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.For those feeling stagnant or stuck, my hope is that Blake’s testimony — chock-full of sage business and life advice — ignites the inner change you seek most and guides you towards peace.Madefor Discount: Blake is generously gifting my listeners with 20% off the Madefor program.

This is the story of a lifelong seeker. It’s about organizing your life around spiritual principles. Breaking the addiction to external validation. And always having the courage to fail.Meet Blake Mycoskie.Quite the change maker, Blake is most famously known as the founder of the wildly successful shoe company TOMS. He’s also the brains behind the company’s ‘One for One’ business model, which donates a pair of shoes to a child in need for each pair sold. With over 95 million shoes donated to date, it’s not an overstatement to credit Blake with sparking a generation of conscious consumers — and rebranding corporate responsibility as not only cool, but de rigueur.But Blake’s story neither begins nor ends with TOMS. A seeker & natural-born entrepreneur if there ever was one, Blake started 5 other businesses before TOMS. In 2012 he penned the New York Times bestseller Start Something That Matters. And he’s since moved on from his shoe empire to launch Madefor — a ten-month program that applies key principles of modern neuroscience, psychology, and physiology to make your brain and body better. It’s basically an at-home spiritual quest, guided by the best and brightest thought researchers out there, including podcast fave and neuroplasticity overlord Andrew Huberman.This is more than the story of an incredible entrepreneur. It’s about what it means to be a seeker. It’s about navigating the world through a spiritual lens. And the power of commitment to persistent personal growth.It’s about TOMS of course. But it’s more about the kind of person that imagines TOMS. It’s about intuition. The stewardship required to scale an idea into a global phenomenon — and the ongoing commitment to service that led to Madefor.It’s also a conversation about breaking the addiction to external validation. It’s about not being afraid to ask questions, and more importantly, the courage to face the answers. Without a doubt Blake is a very special human. It was an honor to finally spend some time with him. And a delight to share the experience with you.The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.For those feeling stagnant or stuck, my hope is that Blake’s testimony — chock-full of sage business and life advice — ignites the inner change you seek most and guides you towards peace.Madefor Discount: Blake is generously gifting my listeners with 20% off the Madefor program.

Ravi Patel On The Patel Pursuit Of Happiness

What’s the best way to grow old? Are we over-parenting our kids? And how can I strike the right work-life balance?These are just a few of the questions Ravi Patel was struggling with. So the actor, filmmaker, husband and dad decided to explore how foreign cultures grapple with them. The result is Ravi Patel’s Pursuit of Happiness, a docu-series in which Ravi enlists his friends and family in overseas adventures in search of answers to life’s questions.Perhaps you caught Ravi’s 2014 hit documentary Meet The Patels, a funny and touching first-person family adventure in which Ravi enlists his traditional Indian parents in his search for love, leading him down a rabbit hole into the world of arranged marriages.Streaming on HBO Max, the new show digs even deeper — a poignant and timely deconstruction of American exceptionalism that ventures beyond buddy travelogue tropes.Today Ravi shares his story — and the many lessons learned along the way.Hardly your ordinary actor, this conversation begins with an exploration of Ravi’s unique path. His past life in investment banking. His current interest in health and wellness. His grapple with identity and indoctrination. And his sundry adventures navigating the vicissitudes of Hollywood.We then pivot to the many nuggets of wisdom Ravi has gleaned from his personal journey. And we tug on the questions explored in his Pursuit of Happiness travels to Japan, Denmark, South Korea and Mexico:Why are Americans so unhappy? How can you be a good parent? How do you find work life balance? And how can we responsibly promote inclusion for all?Recorded pre-election, this conversation is equal parts light-hearted and profound — a mix of laughs and uppercase Truths on all things love, partnership, parenting, purpose, and passion.It’s also a friendship origin story. The first of what I anticipate will be more conversations to come.The visually inclined can watch our exchange on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.I love this guy and everything he’s about. And I hope you find this conversation as refreshing and uplifting as I did.Peace + Plants,Listen, Watch & SubscribeApple Podcasts | YouTube | Spotify | Stitcher | Google PodcastsThanks to this week’s sponsorsMerryfield: Discover new brands and earn points every time your grocery receipt includes our participating better-for-you brands.
