On Motivation When It Matters
Terry Tucker has reinvented himself a few times. He has worked in marketing, hospital administration, and customer service. He was a police officer and SWAT negotiator with the Cincinnati Police Department, started a security consulting business, and became a high school basketball coach. Each change meant new skills and new challenges. His greatest challenge came in 2012 when he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Four years of Interferon injections followed, and the treatment almost killed him. The pain and suffering taught him that he had two choices - succumb to the debilitating discomfort and misery or learn to embrace it and use it to make himself a stronger and better human being. He chose the latter. Terry started the Motivational Check blog to help inspire people to lead uncommon lives, even in uncommon and uncomfortable circumstances. He is still battling cancer and has had multiple surgeries, including the amputation of his left leg. Today we talk about motivation and how to keep going and stay positive about life even when it's really tough. More about Terry and his work at: https://www.motivationalcheck.com/

Magnus Walker - Urban Outlaw
My next guest is Magnus Walker. He grew up in Sheffield England and dropped out of school to come to the U.S. and try the American dream. It worked out pretty good for him. Almost by accident, he started Serious Clothing and his stuff was worn by the likes of Madonna, Bruce Willis, and Alice Cooper. He has loved Porsche's since he was a kid and started collecting and restoring vintage Porsche 911s. He was in a short film, Urban Outlaw, that was a big hit at the 2012 Raindance Film Festival. His newfound fame led to Porsche asking him to work for them 35 years after he applied to work there when he was 10. Magnus also wrote an autobiography - Urban Outlaw: Dirt Don't Slow You Down, about his rise and fall in the fashion industry. His TEDx UCLA talk is great. In this episode we talk about how to be adaptive in a complex world, be open to options, and master your perspective not your plan. And just a touch of outlaw cooking.

Sleep is a Skill
Mollie McGlocklin is the creator of Sleep Is A Skill. She helps people get better sleep through a unique blend of technology, accountability, and behavioral change. She can help you address the psychology, physiology, and environmental issues that mess up your sleep. After a lifetime of poor sleep habits that culminated in a bout of insomnia that lasted for months, she dug deep into the psychology, physiology, and environmental issues that affect sleep. With a background in psychology & human behavior, she went down the rabbit hole to solve her own sleep disturbances without sleeping aids. What came out of that personal search was the realization that sleep is a skill that can be learned. She began sharing what she discovered with other sleep sufferers and found that these skills really worked. Today, she has helped hundreds of people improve their sleep. She’s now spent the past three years traveling the world to test sleep quality in different environments across the globe and share what she has discovered, and sharing the forgotten skill set of sleep.
