Episode 021: Tatum Skipper - How to be a Boss Ass Bitch and Travel the World

March 14, 2017

Tatum Skipper @bonvoyage_bitches is a travel blogger known for her unique and sassy writing style that utilizes offensive language, brutal honesty, and a perspective opposing what most in her industry blog about. This is why she is crushing it.

 
Hailing from Atlanta, Ga. She has won a trip to the French Alps, sky dove in Dubai, lived lavishly through Europe and just recently started building out her RV. She's been queened as a "Professional Partier" and shows people that you can travel the world however you want. 
 
There is something uniquely refreshing about someone willing to forgo the facade of perfection while traveling to bring you the no bullshit version. Let's face it, no trip on the road goes as planned. So Tatum is building her BonVoyage Bitches brand through honesty and leaving bad reviews (just kidding - but she will blog about it). 

 
This episode becomes a montage on how to be different in the travel world. We discover how she uses blogging groups and optimization to grow her following and her biggest trick (Hint Hint: Pinterest). What a wild adventure this really was. 
 
 
You can find Tatum's blog at bonvoyagebitches.com where she writes about places that don't suck and has a segment we love called The Confessional; where you can read about and share crazy, embarrassing, disgusting and just down right dirty horror stories that have happened while traveling.
 
Travel junkie or just plain frugal? One of our most popular episodes was with Kevin Wong - The Invincible Budget - in which he provides tips and tricks on traveling the world for $25/day.

Episode 014: Adam Levy - In the Mind of a Poker Pro

January 17, 2017

Adam, known to many as @Roothlus, is a professional poker player who exited a life on Poker’s biggest stage in an attempt to forge a new path. Though he’s taking risks in the entrepreneurial and marketing game these days, it’s his diverse skills from playing Poker and Magic: The Gathering that helped open the floodgates.  He’s quite the social experimenter, has some wild stories from his poker days, and is known to make a stir with his top 10 lists. Plus, he’s just much happier when he can share an opinion or two.

His most celebrated poker achievement undoubtedly had to come back in the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) main event, where he placed 12th overall. It wasn't just Adams audacious poker play that propelled him to fame but more of his casual celebrity run-ins, with the likes of Phil Hellmuth and Justin Beiber! 

We talk about the grass being greener outside Adam's comfort zones as well as the evolution of slang and language through ebonics. This conversation is great for any 20 something year old who thought the best way to optimize his or her's human experience is through fame and fortune.

Episode 013: Jonothan the Monk - Happiness in a World of Desires

January 3, 2017

The Consciousness Debate. To have clear cut discourse we must first answer the question, what is Consciousness?  But that’s where we often get stuck, leaving further questions such as; Do we have a soul? Is there free will? Does God Exist? Can the body exist without the mind?   

This is probably the hardest introduction to make for any guest we’ve had, simply because words do not do this conversation justice. Here’s my attempt

Our guest is none other than Hare Krishna Monk – Jonothan Foley. He is an incredibly well-spoken and cogent speaker with beliefs rooted in Hinduism. Without a doubt his relationship with consciousness and existence will knock your socks off.  He is a twetny-two year old that lives directly in the Alachua Hare Krishna Temple in Gainesville, Florida. His time is dedicated to meditation and prayer, book distribution, and recruitment of new members (more on this later).

This verbally powerful and action packed episode shares his past life (as a misguided drug dealer) and describes how he embarked on his spiritual awakening. We talk about the role of the material world versus the spiritual world and Jonothan explains the misuse of free will. What about Love? He shares profound insight into true love and its battle-hardened cousin, lust. We were truly opened up by his controversial perspective. Jonothan also defines the position of desires and the soul within the body in relation to consciousness.

There is so much in this episode that writing here cannot do it justice. We do talk about the role of robots in consciousness and how the monks view artificial intelligence (our favorite).  And there is a surprise interaction to close the episode out. Whether you believe in God or not. We have no doubt each of you will take away something profoundly unique in this conversation

You can connect with Jonothan on Facebook @ Jonothan Foley and by email srimadbhagavatam247@gmail.com. You can find out more about the Hare Krishna Temple in Gainesville Florida HERE and to donate to their cause.

Episode 008: Vision & Ingenuity with Tech Titan Zach Hunter

November 28, 2016

Ingenuity and vision. Two staples of becoming a successful entrepreneur (and bus driver). Our most recent guest has them both. Let us introduce - Zach Hunter. A visionary and a creator, Zach went from developing shirt companies in high school to launching phone apps in college. His app has reached higher than 15th for food and dining in the Itunes App Store and can be found on 250 campuses nationwide.

He and his co-founder recently gave a TED talk on Risk Taking. Now he's here to share a conversation with you, our audience. In this convo you'll hear some of his public speaking secrets (spoiler alert: make them laugh), the thought process he puts into the outlook of a new idea, and what his spirit animal is.

Here is a link to Zach's TED Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0MC4CFX4Qw
