A Conversation about Unlocking Genius With the Great Jon Berghoff
Howdy, you Beautiful Soul!Thank you for pressing "play." I don't take that for granted and try to deliver something great for you each and every week.And this week, oh boy--I have something special for you.It's the...IntelligentIntenseand Impactful Jon Berghoff. Or maybe I should say, "Professor Berghoff," as I just found out he's a professor and I'm good friends with the man!He is the founder and leader of XChange, which is a company that facilitates events that get the BEST out of everyone in attendance. His company has worked with a who's who in the fortune 500 world to include Facebook, BMW, CostCo, NASA, TedX, HeartMath, and many more. Jon knows what he's doing, and he makes it seem effortless. He's also a professor and an extreme athlete along with being a husband and father of three.Rather than having a static, passive learning experience from a "Sage on the Stage," XChange has a "Guide on the Side." That means that they ask amazing questions, engage everyone in attendance and get the very best collective wisdom out of everyone.You'll see a lot more of that means in our conversation.In this, we geek out over learning, my new school, Jon's Hero's Journey, and then the actual methods he uses to unlock genius, which are, btw...genius.You're going to love this.I'd also recommend that you get Jon's methods for doing this, and you can sign up for a free workshop where he shows you what he does. You can get that by visiting www.XChangeApproach.com. As someone who's been through the training, I can tell you that it's just amazing.Enough of this! Press play and bathe yourself in Jon's brilliance.And remember that you are LOVED and DESERVING.Chip ❤️👍

Memento Mori 2: The Five Regrets of the Dying.
Howdy, you beautiful soul!Ooh, check out the picture associated with this podcast. That is an actual gravestone of another man--born two years after me, and dying back in 2001...and the name on the tombstone? Chip Franks. Hardly a common name. The story of this and how I found it and what it set into motion is in this podcast, along with many other concepts and ideas about Memento Mori and the five regrets of the dying.In this episode, we delve deep into the whole concept of "Memento Mori," which means "remember to die." When we think and meditate on our own mortality, and we realize that our bodies will stop taking breath, our hearts will cease to beat, and our skin will grow cold...Then we can USE that to inform our lives now.From Seneca to Stephen Covey, we delve into many of these ideas--And I share several ACTIONS and activities that can turn these thoughts and concepts into ways that we can actually improve our lives.After the Memento Mori deep dive (or medium dive, as I COULD have talked a lot longer), we go into the Five Regrets of the Dying. I was about to list them here, but then that might ruin the surprise when you press play on this.One of the exercises I mention in this Magnum Opus about Memento Mori is writing our own Obituary. Yes, that's strange, but you'll "get it" when you listen to this.The example that got me thinking about this was when my friend Giovanni Marsico did it and he posted it on Facebook. I said I would link that to the show notes...so here it is for you by clicking right here!Hey, I love that you're reading this, and listening to my podcast. Thank you, sincerely.The thing I'd like to leave you with as I sign off on this is that YOU ARE WORTH thinking about all of this. YOU ARE DESERVING of doing something to make your life even more extraordinary by doing these exercises--or others of your design.Please let this be a start to continuing or starting of designing and leading a life true to yourself...so that you shall never find yourself, "leading a life of quiet desperation."You are loved, and you are deserving.Love,Chip ❤️👍

Addiction, Being Homeless, and TURNING IT AROUND with Ed Kressy
Howdy, you Beautiful Soul!This is an absolutely amazing talk I had with a unique and wonderful individual by the name of Ed Kressy.Ed was introduced to me by my buddy Akhay...he said (I'm paraphrasing), "Chip, you stunningly handsome man (which is weird coming from my buddy, but whatevs)--you have GOT to talk to Ed!"His story is nearly unbelievable, and you will hear how he went from a good life to scraping the very bottom of human existence in a life of rampant drug addiction and homelessness--To turning it all around, getting recognized by the FBI for the work he's done with prison inmates, and helping others.I know you'll get a lot out of this one. We go over ALL kinds of self-improvement techniques, and how we can go from a quite awful experience in life to the thrill of being truly fulfilled.You can find out much more about Ed at www.AuthorEdKressy.com

Memento Mori 1: A Daughter and Son's Reflections on Their Recently Passed Mother
Howdy, you Beautiful Soul,Well...this is the first episode of the Memento Mori series. I have to tell you that this one is extremely personal and close to my heart, as it has to do with the life of my Mother, Brenda Franks.Memento Mori means "remember death." It's a Latin saying that means keep death in mind so that we may live more fully today.This episode is a conversation between me and my sister, Laura Trela, where we remember our Mom. We pay her tribute and talk about the good and the bad from which we can learn. You'll get to know my Mom and my sister much more throughout this conversation, and also learn several things that you can add to your life to make it much, much better.As always, I truly appreciate you listening and sharing--for this episode especially.You are so loved and deserving.

This Life, Grief, and Everything Beyond with the Amazing Christina Rasmussen!
Hey you BEAUTIFUL SOUL!!!It's so good to have you here and listening in on these conversations about leading a better life.And today you are in for a true TREAT with my dear, wonderful friend, Christina Rasmussen! She is the multiple-time best-selling author of Second Firsts, Where Did You Go? And the newest book, Invisible Loss.She is the host of the "Dear Life Podcast," in fact, here is a link to OUR PODCAST together on that.She is the founder of The Life-Reentry Institute which has helped literally hundreds of thousands of people turn their grief into a launching pad for the next experiences of their lives.She got her masters in grief therapy and worked as a therapist helping others move through their grief when, at age 34 her beloved husband died of pancreatic cancer, leaving Christina with her two young daughters and a certainty that grief wasn't being dealt with in the best way possible. So she did something about that. She studied neuroscience, neuroplasticity, and used that to map out behaviors that people can take to transform their grief.We talk about some of that here, as well as life, serendipities, spirituality, business, and a whole host of many, many other things.It was my honor to have Christina on the show, and even more to have her as a friend.Please know that you are loved and deserving!Chip ❤️👍

19: YOUR HERO'S JOURNEY...
Howdy, you BEAUTIFUL SOUL!!!Two ChipChat Episodes in one week?!!Yes, I promised that--and I delivered that to you.My friend, today we're talking all about the concept of The Hero's Journey and specifically YOUR Hero's Journey.It's a concept coined by a magnificent human being named Joseph Campbell, and it's the story thread that runs through all great tales of humankind.It's the Call to Adventure, the Mentor, the Facing of the Dragon, and the Return with the Treasure.And more importantly than that, it's a way to think of our own lives.Here is an article I wrote all about The Hero's Journey to better understand it. "This Concept Alone Determines a Great Life..." by (ahem) Chip Franks.And HERE is the MOVIE about The Hero's Journey written, directed, and produced by Patrick Solomon...MY FAVORITE MOVIE EVER (often playing on my laptop while I do work on it)...FINDING JOE!In this solo Chip-isode, we talk about how I discovered The Hero's Journey, what it is, a little about my current Hero's Journey and the serendipitous way in how that came about--which involved this very podcast and my conversation with amazing human and billionaire Naveen Jain.What I didn't mention in this podcast is that the school I'm starting, The Imagine Academy was named due to that being Naveen's favorite word, "IMAGINE."There are so many possibilities with that word!It evokes hope, dreams, innovation, ways to make things BETTER for us all. Then we talk about YOU, and YOUR Hero's Journey...which is the most important thing. I'd love for this ChipChat to get you to think of your OWN life and the Hero's Journey that you may be on now--or that you may want to search for.The suggested exercises for this are to:Watch Finding Joe.Read the Article.(optional) Order and listen to "The Power of Myth" by Joseph Campbell and Bill MoyersHere are two questions I'd recommend to help find the Call to Adventure for your own Hero's Journey...write these out in a journal and spend some of the very best time you ever could in thinking about these:1. What did you want to be as a child? There are probably some clues there for your Hero's Journey.and2. What would you do if you had a billion dollars in the bank and didn't need to concern yourself with money?Think about those, and let me know what you're doing with your Hero's Journey!As always, I welcome all feedback at email@example.comYOU ARE LOVED AND DESERVING!Chip ❤️👍

We go into areas that I haven't talked about on The ChipChat Podcast...namely, lockdowns, masks, issues of freedom, and government overreach (Majeed is in Canada).We also talk routines, journaling, asking better questions, how to make a life of TRAVEL...and just thinking differently than others.You're going to love Majeed like I love Majeed!With that, enjoy pressing play!Do you know what I'm going to say?I only say it because it's true, you know!YOU ARE LOVED AND DESERVING!Chip ❤️👍

13: I Will Put You To Sleep. The SLEEPING Solo-Episode!
Howdy, you Beautiful Soul!With this Podcast Episode, I will put you to sleep!This is an episode all about getting a better night's sleep...tonight and every night.I tried to keep this a little shorter in length (as per YOUR request!) so I got in a good amount of tips that have helped me to sleep much, much better (I talked a little about my experiments with this), and I hope these will do the same for you.I mention actual brands and things that may help you, and for your convenience, I was able to put quite a few of these in the links below with the tips for better sleep. These may be affiliate links--meaning that I'll get a little something if you decide to get them. I just thought I'd tell you that.First, here's an article that talks about the harmful effects of a lack of sleep.I didn't even mention this in the podcast, but little sleep is literally linked to a lower life expectancy and a higher risk of cancer. This is serious stuff!But don't worry--here are SOME of my tips for you. There are a lot more.As I mention in the podcast, what I'd ask you to do is to write these down and put a * or circle some of the ones that you'd like to try to make your life better. If you use some of these, and they help--let me know! Write at email@example.com.Here are the Ideas I talk about in the podcast (the links are where you can get these goodies):Set a BEDTIME alarm!Budget enough sleep time.Routine/ritual at the time.Win list. Appreciation.Magnesium supplement this one is the one I'm getting, it looks like it's pure.Blue light blockers shutdown complete! These are Swanwick glasses and rated highly by my friend Alex, who studies the heck out of this kind of thing.Chilipad/Temperature lowered Grounding pad this can be put on your bed under you, or you can stand on it while barefoot during the day.Sleep trackers. Sleep Cycle app. It's SLEEP CYCLE on the app store. I might've said Sleep tracker in the podcast...and that was a mistake! And here's the link for the Oura ringAirplane modeWhat are you grateful for?20 second hugs.BONUS! Mouth Taping!I also mention making sure your iPhone or Android have the blue-blocking setting on. To get that on the iPhone do this:Go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Night Shift > Scheduled or Manually Enable Until TomorrowFor Android, look at the apps available for it. Here's one (I haven't tried it) that I found called Twilight.So, with that said--press play on this and decide what you'll do to get a better night's sleep.What am I about to say? Huh? Huh?That's right--!You are loved and you are deserving.Chip ❤️👍P.S. The "picture" for this podcast is me with my "vampire vision" blue blocker glasses from Dave Asprey. I've also got some Breathe Right nasal strips and the mouth tape I talk about in the podcast. I know. Just lovely...but I sleep like YOU CANNOT BELIEVE!

12: Life and Becoming Brilliant, a Far Ranging Conversation with Ameer Rosic
Howdy from Texas, You Beautiful Soul!Today on the podcast, I'm joined by one of the most brilliant thinkers you'll ever hear--mind you, this isn't what HE says, it's just my estimation of him, how he thinks, and the extraordinarily unique way in which he approaches all things in life.It's my friend, Ameer Rosic.From his bio at AmeerRosic.com, he's a:Multiple Founder, Investor, Philosophy Junkie, and Psychonaut.You're about to be blessed with hearing Ameer talk about how he's turned from being a 9th-grade dropout into a phenomenal life of love, learning, abundance, He's one of the most interesting people you'll ever get a chance to meet, virtual or otherwise, and I know you'll get that when you press play on this edition of the podcast!In this VERY far-ranging conversation about leading a better life, here's some of what we discuss:Epigenetics. The software for life.Life Experiments.Social norms and feedback loops.Capital "R" religion and some of Ameer's spiritual beliefs (he's studied a lot into this)Spirituality as a base for our ACTIONS.The two coming futures: natural or Gattica?The thesis for A.I. and how it might think."Heaven is on Earth, and man doesn't know it."How Ameer got to be so freaking brilliant!How Ameer reads (or has a relationship with a book)!An easy hack for learning another language.How he and we remember so much of what we read and learn.What he's looking for when he reads a book.The MIRACLE of new life and him being a proud new Papa.2 BIG THINGS to lead a better life.Emotional Bank Accounts and what life is all about.And...a whole lot more. These lists are never all-inclusive!I should warn you, there are a few "F" bombs--although not nearly as many as I thought there would be, and traditional "big R" religion is tested here, so I hope you can allow that to your ears. I promise you'll be blessed for it.Thank you for listening to The ChipChat Podcast.Please know that you're loved and deserving!Chip ❤️👍

11: ASK ME ANYTHING #1: How Do I Find my Purpose? How Do I Help a Friend Who is Suicidal? And More...
Howdy, you beautiful Soul!HOLY CRAP. I decided to do my first AMA (ask me anything) edition of The ChipChat Podcast.I reached out, and you responded with some killer questions. I mean, these are DEEP, and I did my very best in answering them.I wanted to get to them all, and I made a good attempt--but there were more than I could do in one episode.As a result, I WILL do more of these, and one of them will be relatively soon, as there are some deep, very serious questions that I can’t NOT answer, as they may make a very big difference in someone’s life.In fact, you’ll get that seriousness, and that earnestness from some of these questions I tried my best to answer in this episode.I’m not going to lie.I got VERY emotional in some of these responses because they touched deeply on the dark night of the human souls--and hit very close to home.I break down in at least one of these answers. It’s all kind of a blur now as I was in a zone while answering these questions.Here are some of the questions we answer in this Ask Me Anything Episode of The ChipChat Podcast:*How do I find my dream? (Purpose, Meaning, Etc.)*How do I help my friend deal with the grief of a loved one passing?*What do you do when you’re so down that you can barely move with your morning practice?*How do I help a friend who is despondent and suicidal?*Can I have Hal Elrod’s phone number? (Would you believe that I actually give it?)*When is your JOY Book coming out?And...we cover a lot more.In fact, one of the biggest things that I wanted to do with these episodes is have YOU think of how you’d answer these questions, and to help give tools and ideas for dealing with these kinds of questions on your own.The idea is to make us self-sufficient and able to not necessarily need me or others to answer them. I try to share my mindset on these, and it’s something that comes through us rather than from us. I hope that makes sense.But--with all that said, I’m very happy to have answered these, and I hope you enjoy (although I don’t know if that’s the right word, as you’ll see, because this is mostly very deep) this episode of The ChipChat Podcast.Hey, you know what I’m going to say, right?You are loved, and you’re deserving.Love,Chip ❤️👍P.S. I mention this at the beginning of the podcast, but I have a gift for you. It’s a TRAINING that I gave on Self-Love and Deserving. It is without a doubt some of the most important concepts and tools that I’ve ever taught, and I want you to have it--as you deserve to love yourself.To get that, go to www.ChipFranks.com/loveThere is an upsell for my JOY Journaling course for 75% off…(It’s just $28). it’s a great deal, but obviously you don’t have to get it. But it’s really, really good too.Okay. Bye for real. I love you!

10: God/Source and How Not to Be a Sitting, Mouth-Breathing Cortisol Factory with Sachin Patel
Howdy, you Beautiful Soul!WARNING: We just jump off WAY into the deep end of life, God, and philosophy just right out of the gate when this interview starts.This is a conversation with Sachin Patel, my dear friend, an absolutely amazing human being, husband, father, son, entrepreneur, and international speaker. He is the unique combination of being both extraordinarily brilliant and truly humble.He is Canada's top functional health practitioner who coaches hundreds of health care experts around the world.

Not as an insult, but literally.Why we're wired and not getting good sleep at night.How to improve our health given an hour, given a week, and given a month.Quick health tips to change our life dramatically in a very short amount of time.And a whole lot more, of course!I just know you're going to love this.Now, pardon me while I go tape my mouth shut for bedtime tonight...hah!Please know that you are loved and deserving.Chip Franks ❤️👍

08: The Adventurous Life and Minimalism with YouTube Sensation Kraig Adams
Howdy, you Beautiful Soul!Once again we have a spectacular conversation about leading a better life.This week, it's with Filmmaker, Minimalist, Hiker, and YouTube Sensation Kraig Adams.One of the absolutely coolest things about hosting a podcast is that I get to reach out and talk with some absolutely fascinating and amazing people. And this was one of those times.I became aware of Kraig through a pretty cool circumstance--which I detail in the podcast--from my brother-in-law, who I call "Boob," (it's okay, he calls me "Boob" too). He's an avid hiker, and he showed me some places he wanted to hike in these beautiful videos on YouTube.I was entranced. The videos took me away to the mountains. The music calmed me while dealing with my mom's hospice. It was a balm for the soul. I absolutely loved these videos and I went to his channel and started watching them ALL.His YouTube channel is at https://www.youtube.com/user/KadamsMediaand his website is: www.KraigAdams.comI also watched several videos he has about Minimalism, the philosophy of getting rid of belongings and maximizing personal freedom.I became a fan almost instantly.The way Kraig puts it is that he's a filmmaker going on hikes rather than a hiker trying to be a filmmaker.Once you see his videos, you'll understand.This approach has obviously worked, as he has right at 60,000,000 video views, 565,000 subscribers to his videos, and is able to make a great living doing something that he loves.If you know him, you already know this. If you haven't been virtually introduced to Kraig yet, you're going to thank me for this.In the podcast, we go over some of the following topics:What LIFE is all about.Artificial Intelligence and Kraig's fear of that (we disagree on this one)...Older/Younger ParadigmHow Search Algorithms are curating our life--and maybe causing determinism in our lives.The economy of attention and how FEAR plays a role in that.Life Philosophy...true or useful?Kraig's view of what he does, and how unique and beautiful that is.Hiking...in Nepal, Iceland, Chile, and Europe.The benefits of being alone, mediation, patience, and being bored.NYC during Covid.The philosophy of Minimalism and living it rather than saying it.How does one start with Adventure Hiking!How to get as friggin' brilliant as Kraig, and the number one critical aspect to learning.Living by serendipity.And the MAIN THING in leading a better life...the magic thing that raises all ships.I'm excited to get this to you. I think you're going to love this and Kraig!Go ahead and click "Play" and enjoy this deliciousness.And remember that you are loved and deserving!Chip Franks ❤️👍P.S. If you're feeling good, and enjoyed this--go on over to www.ChipChatPodcast.com and write a review for me. I'd love to give you a shoutout!
