004 - Running 7 marathons in 7 days, learning to walk again after brain surgery and the steps to mastery w/ Doug Wilson
Doug Wilson broke the Guinness World Record for “the fastest time to run a marathon on each continent” (that’s 7 marathons on 7 continents in 6 days and 18 hours) - even more astounding is that he broke that record less than 12 months after he had brain surgery to remove a life threatening brain tumour, a procedure which left him with permanent nerve damage, partial deafness and having to re-learn how to walk. Through Kundalini yoga, meditation and practices and mindsets we dive deep into in this podcast, Doug completely turned his life around after not only the tumour, but battling addiction and working in a ‘successful’ but ultimately unfulfilling job in the investment banking world. In this episode we go deep behind the scenes into his story & personal practice, discussing the grit and discipline of never missing a yoga practice for 1500 days, the practice of patience and the steps to mastery. Doug now works as a Kundalini Yoga and meditation teacher and shares his story through speaking engagements and his book ‘Kundalini Running’.

001 - The no-bullshit guide to cultivating confidence with Kartik Singh
Kartik is a powerhouse of productivity and one of the most charismatic people I know. He has a wealth of knowledge on sales skills and building rapport, and he’s currently developing the sales training program at one of the largest tech companies on the planet. But Kartik will be the first to tell you he hasn’t always been like that. We get pretty vulnerable about lacking confidence, dealing with insecurity, as more importantly the specific methods and techniques he used to build that confidence from the ground up. We go into developing confidence for sales, job interviews, performing on stage, and life in general. This is more than just the ‘fake it til you make it’ conversation you’ve heard a thousand times, it’s such a repeatable method I wish I’d personally had years ago, and I’m stoked to share it with you in this podcast.
