#048 - Colby Wohlleb - From the Ground Up

December 28, 2017
00:0000:00

The Appalachian Trail winds 2,189.8 miles from Georgia to Maine and ascends 460,000+ feet over the course of the Trail, the equivalent of summiting Everest 16 times. There are 166,000 trail markers from beginning to end and it takes 250,000 volunteer hours to maintain every year. Thousands of people attempt to hike the entire Trail in one attempt, and that where’s today’s guest comes in.

 

Colby Wohlleb is a 27-year-old writer who just transplanted to Brooklyn to pursue a career in content creation. He is a former college basketball player, accountant, and manager of a youth basketball organization, Ball By Design. He also left everything behind and thru-hiked the trail over 190 days.

 

This episode dives into the motivation behind leaving your comfort zone, rolling with the punches, and figuring out a new path. Colby discusses what he’s working on, some of his writing processes, and talks about starting at the ground level of a brand new industry at 27 years old.

 

From falling head first off a fifteen-foot ledge in the middle of the night to African-style dancing around a fire at a hiker festival, Colby shares the experiences that make the Appalachian Trail the most famous hiking trail in the world, and also the most difficult.

#046 - Santiago Aparicio - Failure is Merely a State of Mind

December 6, 2017
00:0000:00

Since 2012, Latin American start-up culture has appeared from the shadows and is booming. Historically a risk-averse culture that tends to condemn failure, we must ask, why the sudden success? Enter Santiago Aparicio, a 28-year-old Colombian serial entrepreneur who naturally understands how to navigate behind-the-scenes at the highest levels. 

 

Santiago is Co-Founder and CRO (Chief Revenue Officer) of Fitpal - a monthly membership that gives you unlimited access to the best fitness studios and trainers in Colombia. On top of that, Fitpal - a phone app - is now considered the biggest "gym" in Latin America, without having a single building or piece of equipment. He was also Corporate Partnerships Director at Rappi - the UberEats of Colombia, except you can get ANYTHING delivered.

 

The London School of Economics & Political Science, where Santiago graduated with a degree in Advanced Econometrics, is one of the most prestigious Economics schools in the world. Santiago was failing at his University in Colombia, so how did he get into such a distinguished institution? The answer parallels perfectly with how to succeed in Colombian business. 

 

This episode peers deeply into the mindset that guides one of the up-and-coming entrepreneurial stars of Latin America. We tackle cultural differences in the new era of entrepreneurship and why the United States really does dictate business trends. Santiago is no holes barred and shares some of his stories and dealings with major corporations that you won't want to miss.

#045 - Elliot Roe - Peak Performance Hypnotherapy

November 16, 2017
00:0000:00

Deep within the subconscious mind lies a system of mental networks that govern us during times of peak performance. For the world's greatest competitors, a small margin in mental edge is the difference between wins and losses, and the highest performing athletes are always seeking an additional edge. Enter Elliot Roe, a leading expert in Mindset Optimization for High Performers and the world's #1 Mindset Coach for poker players.

 
In just the last 3 years his poker clients have won over $50,000,000 and nearly every major tournament title, including the World Series of Poker Main Event. 
 
His clientele also includes Olympic medalists, UFC Champions, Hollywood Actors, Business executives and wall street traders. 
 
His unique mindset coaching system leverages the power of hypnotherapy to eliminate fears and breakthrough mental roadblocks allowing you to operate in a state of peak performance every day. His app, Primed Mind, is a form of guided meditation; allowing you to experience transformative visualization, goal-setting, and relaxation techniques.
 
The lead into this episode was fascinating, as it was our first Skype conversation while on the Save the Deena Tour. We spent a few days scouting out co-working spaces and prepping for quality internet in Cartagena so we could dive deep into the sports psychology of a mind coach. Then Elliot gave us access to his Primed Mind mindset advantage app, and we floated away. Be forewarned, this is truly a powerful tool to visit your own psyche in an attempt to lose negative thoughts and improve confidence. The app really shows you the powerful potential behind hypnosis.
 
In this episode we learn about how hypnotherapy works, the effects of past bullying on fear, as well as preparation techniques to exploit edges in high pressure situations. Besides diet and exercise, we also discuss how to pick up on cues on many athletes fail to recognize, and avoiding self-sabotaging behavior. 
 
You can subscribe to Elliots show here or click the Primed Mind link above to download his app.

#044 - Lya Battle - Queen of the Strays

November 1, 2017
00:0000:00

High in the mountains of Costa Rica, there is a shelter and sanctuary for over 900 previously stray dogs, known as Territorio de Zaguates. Lya Battle is the founder of this “Dogtopia,” where the endless drool of delight is matched only by Lya’s heart-warming energy.

Territorio de Zaguates is a 10-acre plot of land for the dogs to live “cage-free and open range.” This nonprofit animal rescue and shelter was founded over 10 years ago by the husband-and-wife team of Alvaro Saumet and Lya Battle to promote spaying and neutering, animal welfare, and respect. It is 100% funded by donations and run by volunteers.

Lya has been featured on Business Insider and National Geographic, and she opens up the animal rescue property on weekends for the public to visit. In private, she is engaged in an uphill battle against the local community and other regulatory entities.

The lead up to this episode was about as good of a day as we could've asked for (video here). The first episode of our Save the Deena Tour – we rode 45 minutes from Heredia through the mountains to see the pups. Lya released them all at one time and they ran down a valley into a ravine towards us, before running up through the mountainside. The volunteers and workers that take care of the animals showed us the value of love that’s possible. Lya gave us a few interviews while playing with the pups before we sat down for the show.

In this episode we focus on animal rescue organizations and animal consciousness, and we learn how Lya’s background led to her love of helping dogs (especially the ugly ones!) Lya walks us through the need for education and how to go about it, what it takes to create cultural shifts, and why some groups don’t approve of what she’s doing. What does she think of PETA and the Yulin Dog Festival? How does she pay for food and care? All that and more in this episode.

The stray animal shelter operates on donations and gifts of all types, you can donate to Lya here and just $36 can pay for an entire dog to be taken care of.
