The Story of Separation- We are Closer to Dropping it than we Realize
This episode was inspired by Charles Eisenstein's concept of "The Story of Separation”, the idea that we are living in an era where our worldview is based on stories that separate us. Eisenstein’s contention is that these stories, whether they separate us from each other, the environment or our own hearts, do not run deep. We concur! And, our years of talking to hundreds of thousands of people on the streets prove it out. Listen to this inspiring podcast to hear exactly how easily our “stories of separation” can be dropped. Could simple human connection usher in a new era?

Life is a Mirror
We are free to choose who we want to be in each and every moment of our lives. Where it gets tricky is that we are not always conscious of our internal state or aware of our “choices”. In this episode we take a look at how to use the constant feedback that life provides to help us become self-aware. Through this process we can become consciously involved in how we want to “show up” in our interactions with others. Life is a mirror; by looking at what life sends our way we can see inside of ourselves. If we don't feel inspired, what we get back is not inspiring. If we feel hateful, we get discord in return. Do we take a look at our reflection and adjust where needed or find the most convenient place for blame? Listen to this podcast for an interesting perspective on personal reflection.

What is Freedom? Part 2
In this episode we take a look at the archetypical exchanges between people within our exploitive culture and how we can extricate ourselves from them. How can we become truly human with each other? How do we step out of blame and violence? If we want to create a loving world, how do we be loving in the midst of madness? A truly captivating discussion.

What is Freedom?
In this episode we explore the dominant culture's view of freedom contrasted to what we believe freedom really is. Is it a lifestyle that is achievable through having enough money to by all the necessary accoutrements or is it something else? We explore the idea that freedom can be experienced in any moment and is more about expanding consciousness than any image we can tack on to it. Tune in to find out how creativity, hard work and the fire of inspiration can set you free!

Building Your YES
No is frequently our first response to everything. In sales it's often because the goal of our capitalistic culture is to give as little as possible, to get as much as we can in return. So, to protect ourselves from getting screwed over, we start with NO. In this episode we show how negativity, aka the NOs, can easily be overcome with kindness, friendliness and a true belief in humanity’s innate desire to give and love freely.

Reacting vs Responding
In this episode we discuss how responding to people rather than reacting to them is crucial in keeping you on the path towards what you want to achieve. When we let momentary moods and reflexive negativity of others bring out our own knee-jerk reactions, it diverts our vital energy and focus off of the task at hand. Through objectively evaluating and critiquing our own reactions, we became masters at responding with kindness to whatever came our way and thus learned how to stay on track. Powerful stuff!

The Power of Belief
This podcast is about the miracles that happen when we commit 100% to our core beliefs. In this episode we share a controversial story about sneaking into a concert to sell our wares to demonstrate how "connection" and belief in a common good wins out over rules. During our time on the street, we proved this out time and time again. What we learned, in many ways, parallels the wild west here on the internet with its myriad of entrepreneurial trailblazers. We will give you good reason to question all the "rules" and "formulas" marketers will tell you to follow if you want to make an internet business work. Ours is a tale of the "power of belief. It will guide you towards your path of building a business aligned with your heart.

Intro Show to Lessons From the Street
Get to know who Vie and Avi are, what they will be talking about and why the heck you should listen to this show! Vie and Avi both learned about sales and selling in a very unconventional way, actually selling on the streets! With radical literature and art in hand, they traveled all over the US, selling to support the idealistic artist community/organic farm where they lived on along with a whole tribe of other seekers. Much of what they learned flies in the face of conventional (or even heart centered) sales/marketing methods . They will be sharing their wisdom and exploring how it can be applied to creating new businesses, developing effective communication skills and helping us to consciously create positive change in the world.
