Inteviewee #14: Hakeem Khan on Being A Fitness Entrepreneur In Malaysia

While standing in a long line in a musty old gym at Nexus International School in Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur, I met not just the ultra-gorgeous muslim girl, but I met this man — Hakeem Khan.  We chatted it up about him being a powerlifter and befriended each other within that time-frame of checking in to the Spartan Race.  Since then, we’ve maintained communication and I saw his Instagram exploding with an amazing amount of content.  He was changing lives through his own personal training program and so many other things, so I told myself the next time I come here, I’m going to do a podcast with him.  Here it is!

Interviewee #10: Dana & Dennis of Wodbudsuds

I had the absolute special privilege of interviewing an amazing up and becoming health and wellness business called Wodbudsuds – a business that creates soap. Not only that, but hearing the stories of both Dennis and Dana was remarkably inspiring.

The 9-5, the drab job that continues to torment the majority of the world, had gotten a hold of them. Working for 8-11 years, respectively, in their chosen fields of work, they just simply wanted more.

It brings me back to the story of my personal development journey. When I was making a mere $600 USD a month, I asked myself, “if I had any dignity, I would just quit right now.” Two weeks later – I did. This was the beginning of my fear-filled journey that had lots of traps, holes, and setbacks.

With Dana being a Yoga instructor and Dennis being a crossfitter/manager, all while caring for their son, they knew enough was enough.

Turning a kitchenette into a full-on business in the basement of their home, they converted and began making soap, which took 6 months to complete.

One year on and an amazing lifestyle later…here’s there story.

Teemaree Podcast Interview From A Couple of Months Ago – Still My Favorite

Still one of my favorite podcast interviews I’ve done.  Since I’ve hit the milestone of podcasts interviews (the Big 5), I’m now reposting this one (not sure if I even did a blog on it), which was an unbelievable pleasure.

Teemaree, being an author and now taking her acting very seriously, was just a human being emanating with so much love and wisdom.  Her book titled love for you now is on amazon and talks about affirmations.  Affirmations that we sometimes don’t know we have, but we do.

Remember, affirmations can be good or bad, and we normally re-affirm to ourselves negative self-talk over and over everyday and we don’t even realize it.

One of those re-affirming affirmations for me was, “Thai women hate black men and Thai women are racist.”  For the first two years, and even seeping into 2016, I destroyed my image completely.  However, before I came here, I met a dozen friends online (here in Thailand) and befriended some pretty awesome people in the first few months.  After the events had taken place the way they did in southeast Thailand, I decided to go to an even more racially plagued province (not knowing it was), and the idea of being “black” in the most “anti-black” country on the planet succumbed me for the next two years.

Now? Was that all true? Absolutely not…but because of the amount of passion I put being those negative affirmations, it become true.  Here’s the interview with Teemaree!

Podcast Interviewee: Teemarie On Affirmations & Visualization

Now this was ABSOLUTELY one of my favorite podcast interviews I’ve done to this date.  After a ridiculous miscommunication on my end, we were able to start the podcast just after 8pm, and boy, did we deliver!

This woman, who’s an actor/writer/among so many other things, has an unfathomable amount of charisma, which I felt through my headphones.  The way she spoke and with the unbelievable amount of passion behind her words made this one of the most enjoyable and pleasurable one-hour podcasts I’ve done in my 1.5 years of doing this.

Affirmations

After speaking to her about writing down my 101 goals back in 2015, I went back to check out the goals (haven’t checked it since earlier in the year) and noticed that I achieved five more goals that I had written down two years ago.  How remarkable!

See, people don’t realize that the universe is for you. A lot of people believe that you have to “hustle” and work extremely hard to achieve anything….once you start figuring out energy fields, such as what Napoleon Hill wrote in the introduction of his book “Law of Success,” you’ll realize that we’re all balls of energy and you attract to you what you’re vibrating.

People re-affirm to themselves a lot of different thoughts everyday and they don’t even realize it.  We say affirmations frankly all day, but most of them are bad.  How can you switch it all around? Tune into the 50 minute interview down below!
