#183 - Costa Michailidis has a goal to teach 1,000,000 people
Costa began life as a creative misfit, using his imagination to spur havoc, laughter, and the occasional unintended success. Come to think of it, he hasn’t changed much over the years. Some of his adventures include working with NASA scientists to reimagine the search for life beyond Earth, designing innovation tournaments inside of Fortune 500 companies to seed innovation projects, speaking at the United Nations in New York as part of the first TEDx event there, working with a group of cyber security experts (including one of the original creators of the internet—not Al Gore) to make recommendations to the Obama Administration, and that’s just the compulsory who’s who. Some of the most impactful and beautiful work he’s done has been with college students, young entrepreneurs, and nonprofit organizations. Costa’s passion, and by some cosmic coincidence his job, is to help people be more creative, so they can solve new and meaningful problems in the world. He takes great joy and pride in skillfully priming the human brain, and the human heart, for creative breakthrough. He cofounded Innovation Bound, and has joined a team of academics, entrepreneurs, consultants, and other creativity & innovation experts just like him to help accelerate innovation efforts in science, business, and beyond. Costa grew up in the world of competitive gymnastics. To this day, he still chalks up to swing high bar on Wednesday nights. If you spend enough time with him, you’re sure to catch a glimpse of him flying through the air or standing on his hands. www.innovationbound.com www.livelifedriven.com

Mark has been been featured in Real Leaders, The Better Business Book, the Organization Development Review Journal, Lifetime Network, WPLJ, WCBS, Newsday, Working Women Magazine, and the San Francisco Chronicle. Notes on the Opportunity Lab: Opportunity Lab is a strategy consulting firm focused on company growth through conscious business. We started Opportunity Lab during the Great Recession of 2008. It was a time of turbulence and anxiety for many companies. And people. We saw companies with static business plans struggle in the economic downturn. Remember the big companies that went out of business? Blockbusters, Borders Books. But companies that adapted to changing markets found ways to keep growing and winning. Companies like Netflix, Amazon and Apple. We applied these models of growth to companies navigating through disruptive change. And we found opportunity for sustained growth even in the most difficult situations. Through this period, we grew Opportunity Lab, our team, and our collaborative Culture of Opportunity Process. We focused on company growth by applying conscious business practices and working with conscious business leaders. Since then, we’ve helped many companies thrive in any economy and through any business disruption. Opportunity Lab helps conscious business leaders solve strategic growth challenges. We deliver measurable results to help solve your business problems, and we give you the tools and process you can use when future challenges arise. www.opplab.com www.livelifedriven.com

#169 - Mike Fallet Dreamstarters Founder and Publisher talks about "Streams of Income"
Mike Fallat is an entrepreneur, a risk-taker, and man who loves true stories. He started his first business as the age of 23 when he became his own real estate agent and bought a 4-unit rental building. Growing up in a family of non-entrepreneurs, he realized pretty quickly that in order to get ahead in life, he had to play the game differently. With no money and no connections, he had to use his story as a way to differentiate himself from others. After years of failure, he finally was able to start making money from one of his entrepreneurial ventures. This first level of success gave him the idea of putting a book out into the world and turning it into a best-seller on Amazon. And that is when everything changed for him. For the first time in his life, people started to pay attention to him. He realized the book was the great equalizer. It leveled the playing field. The book gave him a weapon that would help him win against those who were more connected and/or wealthier. That is what gave him the idea to create DreamStarters Publishing, which is all about helping entrepreneurs use their own story as their competitive advantage in life. Since 2015, Mike and his team have helped over 200+ entrepreneurs write their books. https://dreamstarterspublishing.com www.livelifedriven.com for more podcasts

#167 - Special Guest Congresswomen from Florida Kat Cammack - an Optimistic future
Congresswoman Kat Cammack proudly serves Florida’s 3rd Congressional District as the youngest Republican woman in the 117th Congress. Kat is a third-generation sandblaster who grew up on a cattle ranch and she understands the hard work and determination it takes to run a small business, navigating labor challenges, interpreting regulation, and more. A proud alumnus of the Naval War College, Kat knows the issues and constituents of Florida’s 3rd intimately, having served as the longtime former deputy chief of staff for the district prior to her election in 2020. An Obama-era program forced Kat’s family to lose their cattle ranch in 2011, evicting them from their home and livelihood. After months of homelessness, Kat was motivated to fight back against the failures of big government and dedicated her life’s work to becoming part of the solution in Washington. Representative Cammack fights for Florida’s 3rd District to ensure no other family has to endure what hers experienced. Kat is a proud wife to her husband Matt, a Gainesville native, who serves with the Gainesville Fire Department as a firefighter/paramedic and SWAT medic. https://cammack.house.gov More great podcasts at: www.livelifedriven.com

#166 - Aarron Lebaur built a "cash" based Physical Therapy business and wants to help you do the same
Dr. Aaron LeBauer is a physical therapist in Greensboro, NC. As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Massage Therapist and Baptiste Inspired Yoga Teacher. After seeing 43 patients in one day as a PT student, he knew he could not treat patients effectively in the insurance model. Aaron started LeBauer Physical Therapy in Greensboro, NC 100% cash practice, so he could treat patients as unique individuals and without influence by insurance reimbursement. He launched the day he graduated from PT school in 2008, even when all of his professors and any other physical therapist he told about his plan, simply looked at him like he was crazy, or with disbelief. He had owned my own massage therapy practice for 10 years, specializing in chronic pain and injuries prior to entering PT school, so the transition was a bit different than starting from scratch, but I definitely faced some unforeseen challenges in my new role as a Doctor of Physical Therapy. Fun Fact: aaron used to race bicycles competitively and actually earned more money working as a bicycle messenger in San Francisco than many of my friends who were on professional cycling teams.
