What is your calling? What excites you, fills you with joy? These questions mark the beginning of a process we call radical lifestyle redesign. In order to ultimately create a more meaningful, joyful and vibrant reality for yourself it must start at the beginning – and that is, with discovering your true “calling”. From here, all sorts of radically fresh and unique patterns can emerge. Too often, people will reach a place of dissatisfaction and attempt to change an external aspect to their life (job, home, car…) which are ultimately destined to return them to this same, familiar place. Only by returning to your ultimate home, or calling, will anything new and truly exciting emerge. And, as we will show, this path is marked with magic and synchronicity, eager for your success.
Coach and entrepreneur Jon Block knew something was off. He was a screenwriter in LA who spent much of his day typing on a keyboard, having little to no interaction with other people. It was through this utterly false scenario that he felt something truer calling to him within…”impact”. By making little to no impact on others and the world, he realized he deeply desired to do just that. A few years later, now a successful entrepreneur helping coaches present themselves with power and authenticity from the stage, Jon looks back during this interview to share his amazing story. Also, learn about his own powerful attempts at self-transformation (which worked) and learn insights into starting your own online business and why now is the ideal time to do so. Enjoy!
For years, modern day digital nomad Jodi Ettenberg had dreamed of….Siberia? After enough time spent in her corporate legal career, she took a 1-year sabbatical to make the journey across Russia’s eastern taiga to satisfy an urge which began while watching an early documentary on the region when she was a child. 9 years later, her trip continues as she is still on the road (Oaxaca, Mexico at the time of this interview), exploring the world and it’s many cultures and flavors. In this interview, learn how she went to law school “on a bet”, has thrived as a celiac on the road, has built a thriving, and unconventional business – “Legal Nomads” – all from her laptop and has become one of the world’s most sought after speakers on all things travel, entrepreneurship and, of course, food.

Coffee, Cookies & Cheese. This was the basic, daily diet for Pam Popper (before she was “Dr.” Pam Popper). She was overweight, unhappy and exhausted. She was 38. And she smoked 4 packs of cigarettes per day. Now, she is one of the preeminent experts in the expanding field of diet and chronic, western disease. She, like Dr. T. Colin Campbell & Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, is now at the forefront of a true revolution. One which advocates eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet, eliminating processed foods (as much as possible) and learning how to tell your doctor, “no”.

She also discusses the tragedy of modern medicine & her new, empowered vision of healthcare.
