And it is about the stories we tell ourselves when somebody is talking to us.  Or, more specifically, perhaps what we hear is not what they're saying. Or even better, we can frame it however we want. It's all in our perception. And I'm really grooving on that idea right now. So I'm going to talk a little bit about that I had a discussion with my neighbor who well somebody who's living in my neighbor's driveway. Christy she is so sweet and so wise and and she's a coach and she lives she lives in a converted van. And my neighbor's got a really cool house actually awesome views and just you know, super chill, she's always has these little parties over there, you know, gatherings the neighbors are you know, drinking their wine around sunset. I, I I hang out at my house anyway. Because the parks, it's the best parking what a place to park your van, and be able to, like, look at these amazing sunset views and, and it's pretty, you know, what a person could could do worse than, than that setup. Anyway, I am in a mood tonight. I just, I was thinking, I'm gonna get to the point here.Mischa Zvegintzov  01:59 But before I do. I've been watching some training videos for the two comma club x, this program that I'm in to grow my business and I'm committed to the business side of things as well. Just so you know. So good news. First off is that I will not be starting a new podcast and walking away from the Bitch Slap podcast. I will just be rebranding the podcast to call it Table Rush. My coach Vince said hey, just rename your current podcast and have fun with it. I was like you know what? You're right. Like there's no need to just you know, shit can it.  Excuse my language.Tthrow the baby out with the bathwater.  But I also had the strong realization that I'm taking a sigh can take things seriously as people should they should take their podcast seriously. But I just am in this mindset right now. Like it's none of this matters. Like none of it matters in the biggest picture of things. None of it freakin matters. And I've just let go of results and the expectations around it. I'm doing the best I can. I'm trying to be of service. And it just seems like a lud... a ludicrous mockery. Sometimes if I was to be perfectly honest with you. So Russell Brunson. I don't know if anybody follows him or follows his marketing secrets, podcast, or click funnels and all this stuff. I'm obviously embedded heavily in it. And I love it. I'm all in and I'm going deeper in every day. And I'm super stoked to have found the inspiration and to be charging ahead and I've got this great business idea that I'm going to run with and hack. Yeah, man, like, stuffs happening, and it's fun, and I'm charged up. So that's the good news. And I'm trying to be of service with my podcast. Oh my gosh, I hope I can get to the point of this episode. And the point of the episode is I kind of feel loops going here. But the point of the episode is, is to have the episodes moving forward. How do I take these stories that I'm telling and spin them the lessons towards business? Right and my mindset, I suppose, because mindset can be so important to entrepreneurship and business creation, and growth and scaling and all that so...Mischa Zvegintzov  04:53 This might need to be a two or three parter. Back to Russell Brunson. So, a bunch of these trainings, Russell Brunson was laughing at himself on how with his marketing secrets podcast, he didn't find his voice until episode 41. Episode 41 was when the Russell Brunson, funnel hacker. Father, leader extraordinare found his voice on his podcast. And sorry, that was a son yelling in the background chirping in the background. I don't know at what? Home my gosh, this is just, you know, this is fun. This is fun. If my service today is having fun and helping you have fun, regaling you with stories. Will God bless. So Steve Larson, who's another big funnel hacker crony of Russell Brunson, who's very good at what he does. Was, you know, telling Russell Brunson that, hey, your podcast effectively sucked until Episode 41. When you finally figured out what the heck you were doing and talking about, and you found your voice, right.  So as I just published as I'm recording this episode, I published I just scheduled for publishing episode number. Where is it? Give me a Give me a sec here. Of course, it's not right in front of me. It's like episode number 340. or some such thing. I'm going to tell you. It's very important to me that I tell you, episode number. Come on computer. 344. Yep. So 344, I still would tell you that I have no idea what I'm doing. I have. Have I found my voice is Misha found his voice? Yet? Yeah. Right. It just all seems so ludicrous. It's one of those days, but I am charging for it. I also had the moment of, of, you know, it might not be downloads or looks or likes, although I do have like 12 or 13,000 downloads, that's which is awesome. But I have definitely learned a lot if I was to catalogue that.Mischa Zvegintzov  07:38 Now, let's talk about Christie my neighbor. Let's just close all these loops. Let's get her done. Christie, and so Christie, my neighbor, I'm talking to her. And I hear I'm telling her about my new value ladder mission statement about, you know, who I'm going to help. And I'm all excited about it. And I'm all excited about the business pivot, helping people in this awesome idea. And and I hear her say, "Well, you know, at some point, you got to stop asking for advice". Like, she was telling me stop asking for advice. So when I heard right, so one way I heard it, and then I was running to the store to get my Apple keyboard fixed. Because I guess I got some food under the tab button. So it was no longer working. And I heard her say, oh, Apple is for fifth graders, basically fifth graders because of the closed system like she likes Dell and all this because she can do all this cool computer stuff. On Wintel that you can't do on Apple, because Apple's a closed system. So I could have and did for a moment perhaps take both of those things negatively. In the same conversation at the same time, she said, effectively, congratulations on having such a solid vision, this new vision that that I've have that's manifested. Right. And so it turns out, she wasn't actually saying, Stop asking for advice. She was saying how great you're at the spot where you're convicted and know your direction. And you know, no longer need to get people's opinion about it.Mischa Zvegintzov  09:48 Yeah, that's a much better way to hear that right. Yes, indeed. And then, I also, you know, as I was talking about how I was going to use my interview skills Here's my, my childish wonder and enthusiasm as I look at things and interview people and. And she says, Yeah, you know, she said, "You remind me of when I met Oprah". And she was talking about how Oprah made was so open and made. People feel like, she was just like, they were in her space, you know. And so, at the end of the conversation, I said, I said, you know, you basically told me to stop asking people for advice, that I've had the intelligence of a fifth grader. I was teasing her. But then I did say, but I'm just kidding a little bit. Um, you actually told me that, congratulations on my solid vision. And that I remind her of Oprah. And I thought, You know what, that was just, I, it's so fun to have the awareness in the moment to be like. Holy mackerel, it's how I choose to hear things. Oftentimes, it's how I choose to hear things and I've got a buddy who who says things excuse me, and I really realize you know what, it's not about me at all. Like put your ego aside. Like, like, it's literally whatever negative thing I think he's saying. I don't need to take it personal. It's not about me. I don't know how else to say it. It's like it could be just about him. How he sees himself. And I take it on. Anyway. That's it. So ludicrous, extra long episode I believe we'll see when it comes to editing. But life is fun. Keep at it, try new things. Keep learning on gaining ground every day love to all.

Counterintuitive thoughts on gratitude.

Gratitude is such a powerful tool.  I talk about two counterintuitive things in regard to gratitude.  1) Perhaps how we look at gratitude isn't right sometimes.  Being told to compare what we have in regard to what other people don't have.  If we continue to compare ourselves to others, and try to see how we're better off, that's actually perhaps not healthy.  And 2) Go ahead and write down the negative things on your life on your gratitude list.   Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!  These are the best mobile mic's for IOS and Android phones.  You can literally take them anywhere on the fly.Get the Shure MV88 mobile mic for IOS,  https://amzn.to/3z2NrIJGet the Shure MV88+ for  mobile mic for Android  https://amzn.to/3ly8SNjGet A Course In Miracles Here! https://amzn.to/3hoE7sAAccess my “Insiders Guide to Finding Peace” here: https://belove.media/peaceSee more resources at https://belove.media/resourcesEmail me: contact@belove.mediaFor social Media:      https://www.instagram.com/mrmischaz/https://www.facebook.com/MischaZvegintzovSubscribe and share to help spread the love for a better world!As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.Transcript: Mischa Zvegintzov  00:02 All right. Today we're going to talk about gratitude, and perhaps some counterintuitive thoughts that I've had on gratitude. Maybe not only counterintuitive as to what to write down for me, and this is for me. Last episode, I was talking about Adam, who's so graciously customer, some customer tech support over at, GoDaddy, who reminded me that change your perspective, and the things you look at change. Thank you for that, Adam. But when I started going on my little riff on that, and thanking Adam and I started to talk about gratitude, and how powerful gratitude can be in our lives, and we hear all the time, gratitude lists. You know, make gratitude lists in the morning, 5 things you're grateful for. You know, just if you're, if you're upset in the moment find something to be grateful for. And it is such a powerful tool. And I came across ah...  I'll talk about two things in regard to gratitude. One is that perhaps, perhaps how we look at gratitude isn't right sometimes. And then to go ahead and write down the negative things in your life on the gratitude list. So those are my two counterintuitive thoughts. Right? So I think oftentimes, we're told to be grateful what you have as to what other people don't have. And I think that that implies that the shiny objects are to be grateful for. Right? Or like, you know, in extream circumstances, be grateful, you've got your feet, and you can walk because some people don't, right. Mischa Zvegintzov  02:06 And I'm not saying be don't be grateful for that. But when we start comparing, and it's kind of a nuanced way to look about it. And this idea was brought to me, I think I read it in A Course In Miracles, you know, I'm all into A Course In Miracles. And let's say, This is what the Course in Miracles said, it's the way I interpreted it. But it was like, hey, if we continue to compare ourselves to others, and try to see how we're better off, like, that's actually perhaps not healthy. Because the better off is an illusion. Right? Like, and I love actually love that idea. It's like trying to find the god gratitude versus the I've got gratitude versus the compare gratitude. Because the illusion is my life's better because "I have this". Well, the reality is, a lot of the "I have this" has been a source of major discontentment in my life. Right. And so let's, let me try and tie that... I appreciate you going down this path with me. And I was thinking as I was on a meeting the other day, on a zoom, meeting with a group of people and gratitude was the topic and of course, people were talking about gratitude lists. And in the back of my, in my mind, I started thinking about... you know...  According to this, like, Well, alright, maybe I don't, on my gratitude list, put the things that I've got that you don't. So therefore, I'm grateful running water, all the way up to shiney house to whatever, you know. And I was like, what if I started writing down the supposed negative things in my life to be grateful for them? Right. And I thought, that's an interesting thought. And then I immediately went to well, let's put down the top worst things in my life that perhaps I've seen.  Or would be perceived as bad.   Or you know, all these these ideas. So when I got sober back in the day, you know, when I was 17 years old, and because I was gonna die, I was dying from alcohol and drugs. You know, there was the final, you know, moments in jail. There was there was that the judge, you know, laying the hammer down. Like, there was the the... I was crushed. best thing that ever happened to me .   Mischa Zvegintzov  03:11 So it's best thing that ever happened to me, and it's given me, like, the, the addiction and chemical dependency and all that is actually the best thing that happened to me. It's given me an amazing perspective on life.  It's given me access to a higher power that provides me immense contentment and freedom and joy and peace in the moment. And it's actually introduced me to a framework of how to live life like steps, here's some steps you can take to have a good life. And I really learned, oh my god, like, if you follow steps, you can have success. If you see something out there that is calling to you, and someone's done it before you and they have a framework for you to follow, you can literally go follow that framework and have success. I mean, in get the end result, or some piece of it, or some part of it, right.  I guess some people might go, I want to go be a neurosurgeon, but perhaps their hands are too shaky, or perhaps their mental capacity is carried towards something else, and not neuroscience, or neurosurgery or whatever, you know. But I think you get what I'm saying.Mischa Zvegintzov  05:08 And then there was the darkest days of, of that final breakup that I went through that just emotionally devastated me, you know, this was, like, seven years ago or something by now. But again, in that moment, I would have told you, it's horrible. But I was devastated. But again, it brought it's brought me so much freedom and insight and, like, release from pent up emotions and, and fears.  And it's just broght me so close to My God, my higher power my source. Like new levels, again, of freedom and release of the illusions of those shiny objects that I think I've got to have to be happy. No. And I had come up with this whole list of the worst things and I'm like, Oh my gosh, if I started looking at what's the available lesson and every supposed negative thing. Wow. So start making that my gratitude list all the bad things, you know, I've tried to think about that thing right now. I could put up my list. Oh, the neighbor planted a tree. I'm like, god dammit, that's gonna grow and impede whatever view of some damn thing I've got, like, all right. You know what the trees do? They just bring amazing birds and they actually provide shade and any foliage... Like it it dampens sound. So any road noise and like it actually makes everything more peaceful. I swear I and I get that a lot as I setting in my house and I hear the birds chirping all over the place. Like oh my god if like if there wasn't all this foliage around impeding my view of whatever the bank across the street.Mischa Zvegintzov  08:27 Then there wouldn't be these birds that are just there's there's so many amazing birds flying around here the life that the birds bring is incredible.  But that's just one example. And so I also started thinking you know the gratitude for... like if you're God's big enough you're just you can be grateful for the fact that we have breath today.  But even then, it's like if you're if my gods big enough like there's more next there's something. Or there's more meaning than just my egoic attachment to this to how I feel right now. And so you can be grateful for death to.  You can be grateful for, grateful for the way, grateful for creation.  Grateful for the way everything works. Supposed it good or bad. Just like a core knowing gratitude.  Yeah. Mischa Zvegintzov  09:41 There's that guy Nick. I wish I could remember his last name (Nick Santonastasso).  But he effectively has you know, he's had some disease when he was kid. Kinda wish I could remember his last name. But he's so powerful because he's got basically one arm and on this arm he's got you know, like one a couple of fingers, that's like one big finger. I don't know that. So much of what he does, and when I see him, you know, on the Instagram or whatever. And I've had the opportunity to see him speak live twice, once in person and once on a on like a zoom thing during the COVID. But I got to see him Funnel Hacking Live, I got to see him live. But also he was he was hanging out a bunch at Funnel Hacking Live, that was the great thing about the funnel, hacking live 2021. If you ever have an opportunity to go to one of these things, you should.  Because all these amazing speakers, if you're into this kind of stuff, like Nick was there hanging out, he was just hanging out rolling around in his wheelchair with his posse, his crew, fully accessible.  You could talk to him as much as you want it. Then his parents were there. Actually, it was funny at a moment to talk to his parents. But I was like, who's the old people older than me, people are actually probably my age.Mischa Zvegintzov  11:11 But I went to talk to somebody I knew. I had one of those moments of talk to someone you don't know or talk to the person, you know. And for whatever reason, I was like, I just I wasn't feeling like introducing myself or striking up a new conversation. Because I had some fear and insecurity, right. And so I went talk to the people that I knew. And I looked back over and Nick rolls up and it turns out these people that I weren't going to talk to who looked like they were looking for someone to talk to as they were because they know anybody.  Then all of a sudden there was Nick talking to his parents. And I was like what the hell what a crazy I kind of had such so much fun talking to his parents just to get insights into what they feel experienced.  Like to get the parental perspective of a son who's just empowering people through his supposedly defects, you know, physical defects. It's like unbelievable.  But anyway it's a good reminder for me next time if I have the opportunity to put my fears aside and embrace the unknown of who I don't know. Anyway. Got so many thought loops going here.Mischa Zvegintzov  12:26 But Nick is so great at pointing out that the body stuff is the illusion man.  Like when I would have been in physically fit, like in my best physical fitness.  Or I think I might my most handsomeness shining honest, right? Like the most echoic stuff to offer have sometimes been my deepest points of insecurity. And he just shines a light on that on me and it's beautiful, and I love it. He's like your body is nothing. And like he talks about how his physical defects are the biggest gifts in his life. And I believe it man. I see it in action man. So anyway, Nick, God bless you. I'm going to end there. And just say quick that like, hey, maybe start writing down on your gratitude list. The top five things that you're unhappy about that cause you discontent and look for where you can find the goodness in that? Because that's it man shit keeps coming at us in life and we get the five gratitude in it or we don't anyway, I'm out.  Enough of my pontificating. I hope this made some sort of sense. Please reply back. Go into the show notes. I believe that's contact@belov.media send me an email "Yeah, right on. I was relating." or "Man you're full of crap!" Anyway, love to all Peace out.

And you will subsequently change what you see. So if you change your perspective, what you see literally changes. And how did this come about? Well, we all hear that all the time, or I hear that all that time, be grateful to change your perspective, which is all valuable. I am not Pooh poohing it or down, playing it, I firmly believe it. If you can change your perspective, the most horrible thing in the world can become the best thing in the world. We hear a lot about gratitude lists, right? And, you know, write down the five things you're grateful for, or, or, or, you know, do your gratitude list at the beginning of the day into the during the day, if you're upset. Think about what you're grateful for. And by the way, I've got to give a shout out to Adam at GoDaddy. Adam at GoDaddy. So this is how the topic of this of this podcast episode came about. Right. So as I'm pivoting to, from Bitch Slap to Table Rush, this will become the Table Rush podcast at some point, the Table Rush hour, I had this great. The great tagline hold please, I'm going to pause. Alright, I'm back, Table Rush, Business Edition!, your reminder to tackle the marketing and sales basics to grow your business. And because I like the sort of the bitch that slap theme, you know, little crack on the side of the head, hey, look at things from a spiritual angle. And this podcast is going to be the same Bitch Slap theme. Don't worry people because it's very important. But the Bitch Slap is crack, hey, it's about the basics. If you want to have success in business, you got to stick to the basics and geared towards marketing and sales, right? Like, there's systems people out there, you know, accounting people out there. You know, process people out there, all this different stuff. And all of that applies to marketing and sales. But I'm, I'm more talking about the activities, the basic blocking and tackling marketing and sales activities that lead to success. Most of the time, it's about consistency, and tenacity, and doing, you know, whatever the outreach is, or whatever, I that's not where I'm going with this with this podcast, but you get it. We're going to be talking about that a lot. Go into the basics. Mischa Zvegintzov  03:09 Back to Adam. So, you know, I'm registering, you know, you know, podcast names and stuff like that. That's what I do, I end up as I'm brainstorming, podcast names, or business ideas or summit names, I just start registering, like mad, and I end up spending like, hundreds of dollars for domains that I never use, and then I let them expire. But whatever, it's part of the process. That's half the fun. Not saying anybody should do that. Probably a much more efficient way is wait until you settle on the name you want and then register it nonetheless. Nonetheless, that's actually not how I ended up on GoDaddy this particular day. This particular day, I was having forwarding issues on a on a on bitch lab podcast.com It was not doing what I wanted to do somewhere and I'm not deep tech savvy. I can do high level tech savvy, but when it comes down to it, I can follow instructions. You give me the list and I can do it. I can make stuff happen. I don't know how or why or what's happening but I can follow the instructions anyway. I have to call customer service because stuffs not working over there. And and I'm talking to Adam and he's like, Oh, what's your podcast about? And I'm like, Oh, it's you know, it's Bitch Slap in. It's about, you know those moments in the universe where where, you know, we get cracked in the head, we got to see things differently. He goes, Oh, yeah, man, I've been going through that for the past seven years, or nine years or something like that. It was awesome. He's like, I totally understand that. I love that, you know, I'll check out your podcast and and then all this stuff.Mischa Zvegintzov  05:20 And then he's like, yeah, he goes, he goes, he goes, you know, change your perspective. And you'll change what you see. He goes, change your perspective, and what you're looking at will literally change. And I might be butchering the, quote, the way you said it. What was another way said, "when you change your perspective, the things you look at change", I believe that that would be the quote unquote.  And I thought, just in that moment, it was amazing to hear it from him from the customer service, the tech support guy, Adam. Yo, Adam, thank you so much, it just, my day was so amazing. And you were such a big part of it. This was yesterday, I believe that he was just talking about that, and to hear it from a source that I wasn't expecting it. And this is what made it even more poignant. Customer service, tech support phone calls, call trees, you know, if you got to call the bank or health insurance, or GoDaddy tech support, or any of these support things... I am super chill in almost every area of my life, when it comes to help desk issues when I got to call the help desk. It's just the biggest trigger in the world for me. So I literally when I when I go to pick up the phone, and I'm like, Oh my gosh, I got it, I gotta get mentally prepared for the call tree, or the the, the, you know, customer support. And so I say this prayer, I'm like, "God, how can I be of service? What can I bring to the table help me just help me be God centered?" And you know, things just don't happen as fast as I want how they want, I oftentimes don't get the answer I want. And then I project it like this is going to be horrible, the answer is going to be bad. Right, just this whole mental hopscotchery that I have tied, it's like all my neuroses are amplified. When I got to pick up the tech support, the help desk, you know, the oh my god, especially with freakin health care.Mischa Zvegintzov  07:48 Anyway, and I'm really serious, I try to take accountability. So I'm trying to be extra mindful, so I don't have to clean and overreact and then have to apologize. And I really noticed too, like the tone of my voice, man, it shifts and I'm like, "Damn, I'm trying to be nice", but the tonality of my voice, there's still an edge to it. So I was really noticing it, you know, as I'm on I had to make a couple of calls.  Had to... first tech guy, complete rookie. So he gave me what I needed. I ended the call just to save him and me and I thanked him so much because he did a great job as a rookie. But then I, I tried to implement and I called back and got Adam on the phone. Hey, Adam. And this dude, I mean, this is a pro at the tech support. And God he was so patient with me, let's be real. And I just think about customer support and help those there truly in a space of trying to help and I can be in attack mode. But I was gracious I had I was gracious I'm making it sound worse than it is. I've had my moments but this there was nothing really bad going on but just just to set up the frame right to set up the frame of like, I can expect the worst going into those calls. And then all of a sudden I get this shining light Adam who was A a tech savvy tech support guy like to the core of this guy knows what he's doing. And then B just relating on the spiritual side of things. And C he just dropped the frick in the change your perspective bomb. And it's so true. Like circumstances don't need to change to make our lives better. The way we see things, our perspective needs to change. And it's as simple as that.Mischa Zvegintzov  10:01 It's as simple as that. And I love it and to hear it from that's from that source in that moment. When when I was perhaps anticipating the worst. It's just such a powerful God shot. You know, Little Bitch Slap from the universe. We were laughing. But anyway, I'll end there. Thank you, Adam. I told him I'd give him a shout out. So I wanted to I wanted to get get this episode up quick, just in case he listens to a few episodes wished I had your last name to Adam. But again, thank you for the help. Thank you for the reminder about perspective. Thank you for just being a source of of solution. And, you know, enlightenment on that day. And I'm going to end with this the that you know what, I'm going to the next episode, I'm going to talk about gratitude because I had a big some big thoughts on gratitude. Yeah, so gratitude and maybe some counterintuitive gratitude thoughts. So let's do that for the next episode. Anyway, I'm done. Peace out. Change your perspective and what you see changes. And it's as simple as that. You don't need to change circumstances. All you need to do is change your perspective. Peace out. Thank you, Adam.

I've come up with the name for the rebrand of the podcast.  Table Rush!  For a moment I thought it might be Bitch Slap: Business addition.  But my coach said it might be a good time to drop the “bitch”.  Somehow I'm willing to let go attachment and go with the new name.Administrative: (See episode transcript below)Check out the Tools For A Good Life Summit here: Virtually and FOR FREE https://bit.ly/ToolsForAGoodLifeSummitStart podcasting!  These are the best mobile mic's for IOS and Android phones.  You can literally take them anywhere on the fly.Get the Shure MV88 mobile mic for IOS,  https://amzn.to/3z2NrIJGet the Shure MV88+ for  mobile mic for Android  https://amzn.to/3ly8SNjGet A Course In Miracles Here! https://amzn.to/3hoE7sAAccess my “Insiders Guide to Finding Peace” here: https://belove.media/peaceSee more resources at https://belove.media/resourcesEmail me: contact@belove.mediaFor social Media:      https://www.instagram.com/mrmischaz/https://www.facebook.com/MischaZvegintzovSubscribe and share to help spread the love for a better world!As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.Transcript:Mischa Zvegintzov  00:00Well, it is happening. There is a major change in store. There sure is major change for the Bitch Slap Podcast is in order. So let's talk about that for a little bit Challis. Okay, let's do it. Very exciting, right on these past few episodes I've been talking about shifts in, who I want to help and serve who I can help and serve. I believe who I'm best suited to, to help and it's definitely clear, that I'm gonna help people who want to help people. I'm I'm gonna pivot away from the, from the... Not going to. I am, I am pivoting away from the, shall we say, divorce dad, who was trying to, you know, find new passion or, or.  Pivoting away from, you know, the excuse me, the A type who's trying to realign and re-find their direction. They just had this epiphany. You know, that's definitely was super strong at Funnel Hacking Live, which is that entrepreneurial marketing conference. Online Marketing Conference. That what brings me joy is talking business, talking business strategy, talking marketing strategy.  It's been a big part of my life for a long time. I love it. It makes my heart shine. I'm totally going that direction. And I've got some great focus and ideas on who I'm going to help with that. Maybe I'll get to that here. But what I was gonna...Mischa Zvegintzov  02:15I think the value I bring, as well as you know, bring in the spiritual perspective, for sure that I have into the business arena as I reemerged into the business arena. Because they I great tools, techniques, strategies to stay heart centered to stay with, you know, your passion. How to not get distracted by the shiny objects and and I definitely have clarity that I can help people who are stuck as they're trying to grow their businesses. And at this point, that's going to be more of your, you know, solo entrepreneurial type. Versus like, like, what, like a CEO or something like that, or working with big businesses. That's at this point, it could grow to that. But very excited about that. So we are going to be renaming the podcast. It was really cool. I was talking to my business coach and and the new podcast title is going to be Table Rush. Yes, Table Rush. And what was there my tagline all the sudden I've forgotten it. I had it written down. But of course, I'm out walking. So it just came to me as I hit pause and was walking by kids and families in such. Table Rush, getting back to the basics to grow your business. I'll say it again, Table Rush, getting back to business. Getting back to basics, to grow your business. Which I think is awesome. I think I definitely am good at following steps to execute. I've talked about it on many episodes, follow the instructions, do the basics, and you can get the results that are so oftentimes promised or that we've seen other people get the same results, get the results of doing the same thing. So I think that's super cool. Definitely gonna be Table Rush. Most definitely, let's say 90 to 95%. Tagline is still in flux. Tagline still in flux still in play.Mischa Zvegintzov  04:57Originally I was gonna go Bitch Slap Business Edition, which I thought was pretty cool, too. And then it was like, hey, you know the the Bitch Slap is the smack on the side of the head telling you to get back to basics like. Quit Chasing the shiny shiny objects. Like, let's get you unstuck let's, let's do the next indicated step that's right in front of you. But with bitch slap moniker, my coach very graciously said to me that probably a great time to drop the name, drop the word bitch from out of your podcast.  So who knows what, what the woke terms will be if I ever have enough success where people look at my old content and are shocked by what's out there.  That'd be a fun problem to have, I think.  An amazing problem to have. And I think, you know, what value can can we learn? Like some you know, from this? Or what can I learn? Or what what's the lesson I think is there?  At least one of them for all of us has to stay tenacious in what we do stay consistent in what we do. Get connected enough with your your purpose, so that you can continue to take messy action and can then pivot accordingly. And I think it's a pretty big step for me to be willing to walk away from the Bitch Slap ...The Accelerated Path To Peace. And I was actually going to just shutter this whole podcast all together and start a new. But my coach Vince, hello, coach Vince, if you're listening, recommended, hey, you know what, just rebrand your current one. Just rebrand your current one and have fun with it. You know, come up with a fun name, have fun with it.Mischa Zvegintzov  07:26And and that's what I'm going to do. And I'm going to embrace the old content and let it go and let it be there. So we'll just rebrand this and let it rip. And in three to five years, as I have success, what a great thing to be able to look back on. So that's one lesson on I definitely think being willing to pivot quick is another one I'm somehow willing to walk away from so much of what I have vested in, you know, the original idea that got me started here. But a bunch of other lessons in there too. As I'm walking, they're escaping me. But I think that's enough for now. Very excited to talk more about the new vision that I have about who I can help you know, business wise and help people. You know, get back to the basics get to the blocking and tackling so they can grow their business to that to that million dollar mark to that million dollar annual revenue revenue. And perhaps it's your first million dollars, or perhaps it's consistently growing from a million dollars a year. But I think that that's a beautiful place to start. So love to all Peace out.

Tribe Sober - inspiring an alcohol-free life! This week my guest is Kate from the Sober School About 7 years ago when I was casting about for help with my own drinking problem I stumbled upon a blog by Kate who had already been sober for a couple of years.  She was the first person I ever heard suggesting that sobriety could be fun – rather than the grey and miserable place many drinkers imagine it to be.  I now know that she was absolutely right of course so it was a real pleasure to chat to Kate about her own drinking story and the work she is doing these days.   In this Episode When Kate looks back she realises that at University she used to drink alone in her room – even though there were numerous bars and opportunities to drink with other students! If you enjoy drinking alone then that's a bit of a red flag because it means that you are not using it to “socialise” – you are using it to relax or perhaps to try to calm your anxiety. As you heard Kate cleverly gave up drinking at the tender age of 30 but for many of us the pattern seems to be that we DO use alcohol to socialise in our 20's and 30's and then as we get into our 40's and 50's it often turns more into self medication and that when we enjoy drinking alone. Kate had been worrying about her drinking for years before she actually did anything which is not at all unusual – A recent study highlighted the fact that it takes an average of 11 years between realising that you have a bit of a “problem” and actually doing something about it. This is a shame because for many of use our dependence and our unhappiness worsen during this period.  I think it takes such a long time to tackle our drinking for two reasons:-  1. As Kate said society tells us that we are either a “normal” drinker or we are a raging alcoholic –if we are a raging alcoholic we must to go AA – if not then we are fine.  We do see articles about “cutting down” which make it sound simple but of course once we've crossed a line with our drinking that becomes impossible.  Personally I spent my 11 years of procrastination trying to “cut down” so that I wouldn't have to quit completely! 2. Second reason we resist reaching out for help is that we don't know where to find it. Many of us don't want to go to AA or we try it and it doesn't work – then we just get stuck.  But times are changing and the modern recovery movement means there are many online solutions these days.  Solutions which work for the millions of people who are not “raging alcoholics” but they are not “normal drinkers” either.  Kate had been sober for 8 years and back then there was very little help around. However she discovered a blog – (the blog was Unpickled by Jean McCarthy) and it resonated with her.  For the first time she felt that there was someone out there “just like her” – which is exactly how I felt when I discovered Kate's blog.  So it's all about “finding your people” – that's the first step in the journey. Her own journey to sobriety began with a blog where she connected with others on the same path and did a 100 day challenge – she felt a “shift” after those 100 days and found herself reflecting on whether she could make sobriety enjoyable – rather than something to be “endured”. We both agreed that doing a Dry January is too short to experience any benefits of sobriety so by gritting our teeth and getting through all we teach ourselves is that sobriety is a miserable place to be! We discussed the value of of writing a Goodbye to Alcohol letter - you can check some out here I loved Kate's Breakthrough story when she was organising her 30th birthday party in early sobriety. Rather than organising a big party she decided to do it completely differently.  Accepting the fact that she actually didn't like socialising in big groups she organised several small gatherings – and loved them.  She realised that she'd been using alcohol to squeeze herself into what society expected her to be! This happens to SO many of us and in fact a whole book has been written about the subject! Do get hold of a copy of the book Quiet by Susan Cain which explains that roughly 50% of society are introverts but society favours extravert behaviour which leaves many of us using alcohol as a coping mechanism – fascinating!  The subtitle of Susans book is:- The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking and she argues that:  modern Western culture misunderstands and undervalues the traits and capabilities of introverted people, leading to "a colossal waste of talent, energy, and happiness". So if you ARE an introvert and use alcohol to help you cope then please read this book – it will help you understand yourself – and your power – so much better! Kate explained that the impact of quitting alcohol is deep – we lose our shame, guilt, worry which is SO freeing. We also free up our mental space and start keeping our promises. We agreed that another advantage of dealing with our drinking problem is that we get to know ourselves so much better than people who have never had to deal with addiction issues. Sobriety also means we start reflecting on what we really want out of life:- If we are an introvert and have been using alcohol to cope we may decide to embrace our introvert side and make some lifestyle changes Kate completely changed her lifestyle – she swopped her life in the city as a tv producer for a life in the country running the Sober School which helps other women to stop drinking.

Now, I would like to introduce to you Carisa Caudill, a dear friend of mine. Welcome, Carisa.0:00:18.0 Carisa Caudill: Thank you, hi, I'm so excited to be on your show. Thank you.0:00:23.1 MZ: Yes, indeed. So real quick, I'm gonna read your bio for the seven audience, so they can get an idea of who you are. And then we'll go from there, okay?0:00:32.7 CC: Okay.0:00:33.5 MZ: Alright, fantastic. So Carisa, you're a nationally certified nutritional recovery coach, certified testing and designing... I guess certified in testing and designing personalized DNA-based fitness. Which sounds awesome, we were talking about that before we started here, which... So anybody listening, if we happen to touch on that, it's amazing. Diet plans associated with that. You're a personal trainer, trainer, yoga meditation practitioner. You were awarded first and second place in a bikini competition and a bikini competition title in a drug-free natural body building show after losing 50 pounds in 2018 and 2019. I don't know if that flowed right, but suffice it today that you...0:01:27.4 CC: It's a lot in there.0:01:29.0 MZ: There's a lot in there. But that's amazing. Congratulations on that. You have an athletic background, a background since you were 5-years old. You've struggled since your teens with addictive behaviors, emotional eating, weight gain. Approaching, you're approaching seven years into your personal health, wellness and nutritional recovery journey. Your entire life is dedicated to teaching and sharing with others, your unique approaches to help build a new relationship with food, enhance energy, manage weight, curb cravings and bring more awareness around nutritional recovery, recovery habits. Your mission is to help others create a healthy lifestyle and build a new relationship with food to help fuel all the fun, desired and deserved in life. Freaking love that. How amazing is that. So I think what's really cool, maybe we could touch on for a second is like the ability to utilize nutrition. I know you said to manage cravings or things, but also to manage like energy and stress levels and things like that. Maybe talk to that for a minute.0:02:49.3 CC: Yeah, that's a big part of my journey. You know, since I... And I'm transparent about this, and it has, but I... Was in my addiction really deep six years ago. Six math years ago, and I knew nothing about nutrition, like I really was not taking good care of myself. So through my journey, learning how to slowly take care of myself through exercise. And all the other things we're supposed to do that are out there that help us. Nutrition... I realized I was eating food to fill a void for the longest time, for the longest time. I wasn't realizing that hormonal balances were off when I was craving a lot of carbs or a lot of sugar or just wanting to fill up on food.0:04:04.1 CC: And I know I was going lengths of time without eating at all, and I really thought that it was gonna help me lose weight. So bottomline is nutrition is... We have to eat. We have to eat. [chuckle] And so the biggest secret, and it's like the hidden secret behind all the diets is managing sugar levels, and they don't tell us that. And so I've done the cleansing, the starving myself, the, all the diets that are out there, I think I've tried them all. And a lot of them worked for short periods of time, but they were not sustainable. Sustainable with energy or sustainable overall to really help me understand how to connect with my body. So I know I'm kinda talking in code a little bit, but the biggest thing is to manage your sugar level, and that is what I focus on most. That we really...0:05:08.1 CC: It's so important, I can't emphasize enough, how important it is for me to share with people and for us in general to understand what foods are spiking your sugar level. And what foods are causing different cravings, what foods are causing different energy crashes, what foods are causing different... Have an effect on different moods.0:05:34.2 MZ: Yeah.0:05:34.7 CC: You know food moods. So food mood logs are a really big thing I do with my clients. And once I started to interconnect my relationship with food, like what food was doing for me, that's when I... So to speak, nutritional recovery plan really, my journey really started. And so we all know that eating vegetables and eating...0:06:03.7 CC: Lean meats or healthy foods are important, we all know that. It's kind of common sense, but our bodies so often want other things, and I'm just keeping it real. It's like I'm keeping it real. I've been to the point where I was 50 pounds overweight because my eating spiraled. And then I've gone on to the crash diets and the bikini competition was one of them. I went on a crash diet. I got super ripped and I learned... I thought at the time, I was actually eating healthy, and I really thought I was 'cause I lost all this weight and if you look at pictures of me on the stage of that bikini competition, I was ripped, but I can't...0:06:52.9 CC: And I didn't know at the time, so this has been an evolving nutritional journey for me. So I didn't know at the time I was actually doing more harm to my body than good by losing all that weight so fast and not allowing my body to have the healthy fats it needed. I was eating too lean and I pushed my body to adrenal fatigue because it wasn't getting the nutrient, and I was a nutrient deficient. So when we see pictures of people totally in shape, ripped, I'm just gonna be... I have to be honest, it's...0:07:36.4 MZ: Please do.0:07:37.4 CC: It wasn't the healthiest journey at that time. [chuckle]0:07:41.2 MZ: Yeah. No, I love that. I thank you for that. You've made me think of two things. One is, we tell our kids or at least try not to give the kids too much sugar 'cause we see the emotional roller coaster it can put kids on, and I think that still... You just reminded me that still holds true to adulthood. We're not immune to that just 'cause we're older, and that as a matter of fact, now sugars... And this is not to do a discourse on the food industry, but we'll save that for the next summit, but that perhaps unhealthy sugars are hidden all over the place. So there's that and don't answer that yet. And then the other thing is that, if we're going through a hard time, there's foods... How we eat can enhance the stress or temperate or provide calmness, and so sometimes... Well. I'll just say that. Is that a true statement?0:08:58.0 CC: That's a 100% true. And it took me the longest time to really embrace the process of my eating, and I know it kinda... And it was so embarrassing for the longest time because I really struggled. I really struggled with what was healthy, what isn't, eating a bunch of nuts, eating a bunch of fruit, eating... And then somebody's saying or you're hearing that nuts make you fat or... You're getting all these mixed messages out there of what's right, what's wrong, what to do, what not to do, and then your body's here craving something else. So there is a way to get to a point where you intuitively... There is intuitive eating, where you do intuitively know what works for you and what doesn't work for you, but it takes work. You've got to actually write it down, and that's what I do with my clients. We actually have a food mood log. What foods make you feel this way? What foods spike up?0:10:12.2 CC: And then your sleep. That's something that is really, really big, the sleep hygiene, when we eat late at night and we are spiking that sugar level at night, that cortisol level. It's actually linked to the melatonin, the melatonin hormone. So it really does affect our sleep, and there's a whole cortisol, a little cycle where your cortisol should be really low at night, and then you should wake up hungry. So if you're not hungry when you wake up, that's kind of like a little signal to where you need to look at it 'cause you're now starting the day for a potentially triggering day to emotionally eat or grab foods that are gonna be not in your best interest. So there's a lot to say on that. [laughter]0:11:15.0 MZ: I love that. I love that. Yeah, thank you for that. I think too, one of the reasons I brought you on to the show, or not the show, the summit, and to speak to me and our audience right now, is that I loved the balanced perspective that you bring. It's so easy to find people that are like, "Work hard, push through, get ripped. Bam, bam, bam." And for some people, that might be the solution, but the reality is, as you said earlier, that might just be heightening the... Might not be a proper way of applying the tool of nutrition to having a good life, to stick with the summit theme. It might be heightening your anxiety versus calming your anxiety. So that was what excited me about having you on here is that it's like, "Hey, let's bring someone on who can talk pragmatically," if that's the right word, or...0:12:18.3 MZ: About nutrition. So I think on that note, we get to the question.0:12:22.5 CC: Okay.0:12:23.5 MZ: Yes, you ready?0:12:24.7 CC: Hopefully, I have good answers for you. [laughter]0:12:26.0 MZ: I know... You better. Oh, I love the little tip about sleep already. I think the way you described it versus don't eat before you go to bed, the way you described it is, oh okay, that makes sense. I see, right? I don't know...0:12:41.0 CC: Well, if I'm gonna eat the popcorn at night or if I'm gonna... Of course, I always work on the next best option. If I'm gonna make a smoothie of some sort, I try to do it as low glycemic as possible because of my awareness around it, and what it's gonna do and set me up... For not failure, but it's gonna be more challenging when I wake up. So at least my awareness around it helps my decision making. And I'm not so hard on my body, and it makes me want to choose something that's actually gonna be more beneficial. But if you don't know what those options are and you don't know what's going on with your body and how food actually affects your body, then you don't know. You don't know if you don't know. [laughter] 'Cause the longest time, I didn't know.0:13:31.3 MZ: Alright, let's get to it. So, I'm gonna lay out a scenario and then I'm gonna ask you a question. So, the scenario is this, if we think of life as a three-legged stool of relationships, finance and health, and if we think of someone who is successful or was successful... Successful or was successful, and then they have two or three of those legs fall out from under them, that's when stuff can get gnarly. Sometimes it's easy if, "Ah, there's a little relationship chaos, but mentally, I'm okay." But if there's relationship chaos and then financial chaos or... And then you have a health ailment or... For me, it was my parents were dying and I was getting divorced, more failed relationships, and I was... My... That success, pull myself up from my bootstraps, apply more success to it, work harder through it, was no longer sufficing, right? I needed new tools. And for me, by the grace of God, I was open-minded. So, my question to you is, thinking of nutrition, what are the exact next steps you would offer a man or a woman who's coming out of that tumultuous time... What are the exact next steps you would offer this person, so they know they are headed in the new right direction, that they will have positive momentum towards getting their life back on track? How can they use nutrition as a tool to facilitate that?0:15:14.5 CC: Oh man, and I've been there. I have been there more than a few times in those circumstances, and I didn't have the tools that I do now. So I'm really excited to speak on that, so thank you. I love your question. Man or woman, doesn't matter. First and foremost is to know that you have to take care of yourself, like the airplane going down analogy, if you don't put the oxygen mask on you first, you're not gonna have strength, you're not gonna be able to save anybody else, and that's actually a mindset that I have every morning. I'm still cleaning up some wreckage of my past, so to speak...0:16:07.6 MZ: Sure.0:16:07.9 CC: And I'm still in those phases of certain things not transpiring yet. And I know they will, I'm optimistic, I'm open, in my life circumstance with the relationship, the family, like stuff like the finance, all that stuff. It's still not where I would like it to be, and I still have my personal challenges. So, how I use nutrition to help me and what I would best offer, my suggestion and mindset to help anybody else is to make sure, first of all, you're drinking lots of water, lots of water. We have to drink water, and sometimes we put that on the back burner. And as we say that, I'm gonna take a sip. [laughter]0:17:00.7 CC: And I learned to do that. I learned to pause and I learned to take a breath sometimes when needed, but water is so important. It... Water will help push through the circulation and the blood flow that you need, it'll help the whole circulation process so you can actually think clearer. If your brain is foggy and you're over-stressed and you've got all these things going on and you're dehydrated, you're lethargic, you're not gonna able to think clear and have any rations. So first and foremost, you need to drink water. Me, I drink a gallon a day, that's my goal. It's a good goal. It's always worked for me and because I like to drink, but that's in the hydration actually allows you deeper meaning, to absorb nutrients. You will actually be able to absorb more nutrients when you're eating healthy foods versus it getting stuck in the body or just being flushed out too fast so that there's an equation there, but... And I work a little bit closer, but water hydration, hydration, hydration, I can't tell you enough. Stay away from... And lower the caffeine. Lower the caffeine because a lot...0:18:22.1 MZ: Sorry, sorry everybody. [laughter]0:18:24.0 CC: Lower the caffeine and it... And I'll tell you, when I was doing those bikini competitions and the fitness getting all crazy, 'cause I had just gotten sober and I was trying so hard to get my new life back and all this stuff, my revenge body, so to speak...[laughter]0:18:41.2 CC: Yes I wanted it. I wanted the revenge body.0:18:45.8 MZ: That's all good.0:18:46.9 CC: Yeah, but I was drinking a pot of coffee at a time.0:18:51.3 MZ: Oh my God.0:18:52.0 CC: No joke.0:18:52.0 MZ: Which is brutal on the emotions, right, and your physiology, I guess.0:18:57.4 CC: All of it, all of it. And so I was in trouble. So anyways, water and... Go ahead.0:19:08.5 MZ: So any tips or tricks to help somebody drink more water, right. 'Cause I think a lot of people go, "Okay, I'll drink more water," but as you said, you have built the habit.0:19:20.3 CC: No, water workouts. I actually have a course and there's a little section on water workouts.0:19:24.4 MZ: Okay.0:19:26.1 CC: A little tip on that is... So I just drink. My goal is to drink four of these a day. So I drink two by two, from the minute I wake up, I drink two by two, and then two by the time I go to bed. I just break it down, and I keep it with me at all times. And I remind my... And I breathe, of course, and I like to take a deep breath and actually visualize the water flushing through my body and getting my circulation going and pushing out the toxins. I really love to visualize that because it just... It's an inter-connection. It's kind of like the ocean and the waves. I like to just feel... And it's a sense of calm, and it's an esteemable act that I'm doing for myself, so it really helps me with esteem. And knowing that if I get a phone call, that's either good or bad, if it's a good phone call, I'm able to show up, if I'm mentally clear. If it's a stressful phone call, which we get them, or emails you didn't the bill or whatever it is, I feel like, if I'm on top of my water, it allows me to just have this sense of calm inside where I can just show up for a situation better. My water and me, 'cause I'm thirsty, I'm a recovering alcoholic, I'm in sobriety, and I had no problem drinking then...[laughter]0:21:02.6 CC: It's like the drinking...0:21:03.4 MZ: I hear that.0:21:06.2 CC: So, the drinking the water, I can't emphasize enough. So...0:21:09.0 MZ: Fantastic.0:21:10.0 CC: That's the number one.0:21:10.8 MZ: Okay, fantastic. So good, thank you.0:21:13.2 CC: Number one, and number two is to be mindful of what you're eating. Be mindful, because we put ourselves... It's so crazy, and I have to go back to this, and I share this with a lot of moms I work with, that for the longest time, we used to... We... Ever since we were moms, we would pack our kids all the snacks and all the meals and all the things, and how many times as a mom was I out and about where I was like, "Oh shit", constantly feeling like, "Where's my food?" I forgot to pack me, I forgot me. So I'm either eating their snacks, which at the time they weren't that healthy, they're snacks, and I didn't know better then, or I'm just quickly eating out.0:22:03.7 CC: So, one thing I've done for myself and it's... And my purse is literally a backpack, it's half insulated, so it can hold in a little... A little ice pack thing, and then I keep food with me at all times. And then the other little section of the backpack is where I keep my wallet, my stuff. And so I literally, I have a backpack. And that's something I do for myself every day. I have food on hand, and I make sure I'm never in a situation where I don't have something prepared for myself. And if I'm out and about, and if I'm running short or if I didn't have time to... Which making that time is the best act of self-love I do for myself today, is making that time to make sure I have my smoothie in there, my snacks in there, whatever it is. I set myself up for success when in the food arena.0:23:01.3 CC: I never... That is my first and foremost. And if I'm out and about, I already know that I'm gonna go to a deli, either it's Sprouts, Whole Foods or... And I know what my go-tos are rather than... What I was programmed to do for the longest time is the drive-through or... So I know what my next best option is. 'Cause when I get in those moments of panic of... And I don't know I'm hangry until I'm totally my... That's the thing, when your sugar level drops so low, where you're in an oh shit mode and you know you're hungry... Know you're angry when you're in that drop level, that's when your cortisol levels spike, and that's when everything's out of whack. I have gone on that hamster wheel so many times, long enough to know that I won't do that to myself anymore.0:24:00.1 MZ: You know what I love about that and you just reminded me and how these days, I guess for the awareness that I have or that hangry, I know that hangry, that was a heavy thing for me back in the day, is now, if I'm going into a... If a circumstance with the boy's mom comes up or something, or perhaps with one of my kids or whoever, maybe... It's like, you know what... And I haven't eaten, it's like, "Hey, can I eat and then we can come back to this?" Prioritize that food that nourish, to bring down, right?0:24:38.1 CC: And I don't even ask anymore. I just eat when I need to. I'll be like, "Oh, I'm gonna have something to eat." And I offer and I like to have a little extra something 'cause I like to offer people. Because, I don't know, eating was always like this really awkward thing. You know, when you're eating in your car and someone's looking and you're... I don't know. For me, I was like, "Oh God". I have this weird thing around... But now I'm just... I'm okay with it, I need it. And you need it too.0:25:08.1 MZ: Yes. [laughter]0:25:09.7 CC: Here you go.0:25:11.8 MZ: Love that. Here, have a bite then let's talk.0:25:17.2 CC: Yeah.0:25:18.0 MZ: Dawn my ex wife, I think, you know Dawn, or the boys mom whatever. We're dear friends, but she was like, she started packing food for me 'cause I would get that hangry and she'd be like, "Eat." [laughter] So, I love that.0:25:34.0 CC: So those are my two, I wanted to have three in there, but two... Oh, and I guess number three would be to make sure you get no less than six hours of sleep. No less. And it's gonna be a little different for everybody, but that six to eight hours of sleep is... Even our cell phones, they die, we have to charge our cell phones. We are not... The expectation of myself to keep going and keep going and keep going, and it's not real, it's not fair, so my water, my food, and my sleep are crucial. And sometimes that looks like taking a 20-minute nap. Sometimes I'll pull over, 'cause if I'm feeling... I'm just so in tune now to where if I'm feeling like my energy level is... I like to keep it between my heart and my gut. My throat and my gut. If it's too high, careful, 'cause you're gonna come down and you're gonna feel a little you know... But if I'm too low, it's hard to get back up. It's hard. So I will literally pull over sometimes and just shut everything down, shut the phone down and I'll close my eyes for 10 minutes. Of course, you find a safe spot to do so.0:26:55.0 MZ: Yeah. Of course.0:26:55.8 CC: But I always pull in, I pull out my backpack and make sure I have water, I take... It's like a nutritional meditation. A lot of people meditate different ways. Moving meditation with extras, but that's my way of meditatively bringing it in. And what does your body need right now? If it's sleep, give it to her. [chuckle] And then I know... I used to think all this self-care stuff was selfish, but honestly, it's the best gift I can give to anybody I care about; my clients, my family, my kids. And yeah, me too, but all these things I wanna do, if I'm not doing these things, how the heck am I gonna show up for anybody else? So I just know that the people around me are gonna... I don't know, you kinda train people how to treat you. And it's just been a thing I've had to do for myself that it is who I am, I'm not afraid to eat, I have no shame in eating anymore, and that was a lot of work. 'Cause I was in the overweight. I've been in relationships where they monitored my weight or they made comments on my weight, and actually that made me revert into emotional eating even more. [chuckle] I do this for me, and I'm okay with it. That's the best advice I can say, is to take care of yourself enough so you can actually show up for all those situations the way you want to.0:28:37.6 MZ: Carisa, that was freaking amazing. Thank you so much. I think that that's a great place to end. Everybody listening and watching with us, if this interview with Carisa was fantastic, and you want to get even more content from Carisa, upgrade to the all-access pass for that bonus interview, 'cause we're gonna talk about more amazingness. Any final thoughts to share that we did not get a chance to cover?0:29:16.7 CC: I would just say, enjoy the journey. Love your body, period. You're right where you need to be. Sometimes those things you wanna do for yourself seem far-fetched, as far as in the health arena, but they're very possible, and I love just sharing all the ways that you can get there through nutrition and how that's really the base of it. So, that's it.0:29:46.5 MZ: Beautiful. Everybody, you can find Carisa at... She's got a Facebook group, an awesome Facebook group, she's gonna vet you just so you know, but it's called "Sober Sundays." So go to Facebook, search the Sober Sundays Facebook group, and she might graciously let you in. You can find Carisa at coachcarisa.com, and soberfitlife.com. Am I saying those...

It's this DNA package where you'll get the DNA sequence and then build a best health program for them. Right?0:31:09.2 CC: Right.0:31:09.4 MZ: It's got four sessions. Normal price. Well, she's gonna heavily discount it, it's gonna include the DNA piece, so she'll help cover that for you.0:31:24.1 CC: And I think I'm gonna have to limit it to the first 10 people. Because it's a lot of time invested, it's a lot of time vested. We do a DNA, I register a kit with you as your coach, and we get a DNA swab and...0:31:42.7 MZ: What I'm gonna do... Oh, go ahead. Go. Finish, finish.0:31:45.8 CC: It helps us together, me and the client, whoever it is I'm working with, he or she, customize a nutrition plan, fitness plan and lifestyle plan, based on what works best for your body, how you metabolize carbs, how you metabolize certain fats, your exercise response system, everything. [chuckle]0:32:15.7 MZ: I might be the first of 10. Sounds amazing. So generous that you're offering it. So upgrade VIP all access pass. You can get unlimited access to all of these interviews, plus all the bonus interviews. Carisa, I'm gonna hit stop. Thank you so much and we'll see you in a minute for round two.[music]

Thank you for the healings that I have experienced today. I realize that the sickness of evil is more than my humanity can bear, so I ask you to cleanse me of any sadness, negative thinking, or despair that I may have picked up while interceding for others. If I have been tempted to anger, impatience, or lust, cleanse me of those temptations, and replace them with your love, joy, and peace. If any evil spirits have attached themselves to me or oppressed me in any way, I command you, spirits of earth, fire, water, the netherworld, or the evil forces of nature, to depart now and go straight to Jesus Christ, for him to deal with you as he wills. Come Holy Spirit, renew me, fill me with your love, peace, and joy. Strengthen me where I feel weak and clothe me with your light. Fill me with your life. Lord Jesus, please send your holy angels to minister to me and protect me from all forms of sickness, harm, and accidents. I thank you and praise you my Lord, God, and King.

Ais shares her Experience, Strength and Hope as a young member of AA, not sure what part of her growth is recovery and which part is simply growing up. Ais is from a small town in Ireland, where she loved escaping in books and relating more to adults than children. She was an obsessive, neurotic and opinionated kid, but not one her parents had to worry about. Until Ais found alcohol at 14 yrs old, at which time everything turned around. Once drinking began, she was skipping class, smoking, going to class hungover and hitting the bar after school at only 16 yrs. old. Her first geographic brought her to NYC, where things only got worse, with shaking and hallucinations and misery. After a therapist's repeated recommendation, Ais found herself in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, and soon sober. Today Ais has friends and meetings and a life that functions very well, “AA rewired my brain.”Quotes“I have no control after the first drink, it's just completely a coin toss what will happen after that.”“I have no interest in having 1 drink or 3 drinks, I want 10.”“The thing that made me feel better was the meetings . . . something changed in my heart.”

In this episode, Mandy talks to sober shero and coach Jo Walduck. Jo Walduck (she/they) @zesobercoach @jowalduck loves long naps, white chocolate, social justice, walks on the beach and fluffy cats. Currently working remotely, she lives in Lyon, France but has grand plans to relocate to the seaside as soon as possible. Sober since October 2019, her journey to sobriety came off the back of burnout from teaching, and retraining as a life and business coach. After taking one month off the booze to boost the launch her company, she realised the tip of the iceberg had just been scratched in terms of the benefits and lessons that can come from sustained sobriety, and since then has navigated quitting nicotine, coming out as trans, living with chronic illness, losing friends and family to isolation, illness and death, and of course, the adaptation to life in a pandemic. She works on herself and with women and queer folk as a coach, exploring the hindrances to sustained sobriety and the shadows that can appear when the sober light gets stronger. Her support group (The Deep Duckpond) is currently only in English, but she works 1:1 with clients in English and French and hopes, *once things settle down* to be more actively involved in the alcohol free world in France, and to produce more resources and supports for members of the queer community who struggle with addictive substances and behaviour. Community, therapy, boundary work (inward and outward-facing), non-violent communication, and radical self-love and self-care (it's not all fluffy slippers) are the cornerstones of her sobriety, healing and recovery.

And I'm hoping the story will, you can use it and look at times in your life where you're like, oh, yeah, that's super subtle. Yeah, there is a moment where my unwillingness to try something or to be open to a result? Or thinking I know the answer already. So I'm not going to do it. Or I'm going to begrudgingly take action. Like how, how has that attitude slowing us down perhaps or, or holding us back or, I don't know, keeping cool stuff from happening. So here's my little story. Mischa Zvegintzov  01:15My mother was super, one of the really cool things with my mom is she liked really cool, quality things. So if she got a little piece of art, it would usually be super cool quality, a little bit funky. But really, like, really, lifetime, I don't know, a lifetime lasting. Right, like timeless.  Like I don't know, she just had this knack for that. And so this also could come to like, like her coffee maker right.  Like, she would get she pay a little bit more, but get the amazing coffee maker that just worked so beautifully.  Functional.  Just this this sense of style to. And not to access though, right? My mother came from she grew up in World War Two in Germany, her dad was killed in the war, when she was, you know, three, or four or five or some such thing. And, and so it wasn't like in frivolous extravagance, it was like this knowing of quality, and goodness. But like, along with temperance, and apreciation, I guess is how I'd say it, but she at one point, got it's got to be 25 or 30 years ago, got me these really amazing scissors for clipping your toenails and fingernails. This might sound crazy, but they were so good. And the quality was so good. And they just almost made it a treat, as a as all I can say. And I had these scissors for 30 years, or maybe even more just. And I finally effectively, you know, wore them out. Like they didn't have that close scissor effect where the blades, you know, still connect, so you'd have to like, manipulate your fingers to get the, the tension or whatever. But I liked the scissors so much. And if I would hold them just right. Oftentimes, they would still work, but it was not. They were they were failing more and more.Mischa Zvegintzov  03:58And so I don't know, five years ago, I started trying to find new scissors and you know, target.  And then you know, I don't know, other places like you know, the beauty store and then Amazon and I just kept on finding scissors that were not comparable at all. You just weren't comparable. And you know, you finally you get tired of trying right? I'm like really I'm gonna waste another 10$ 20$ $30 on another pair of crappy scissors that won't live up to this standard of form and function. These things were freaking form form was cool. They were beautiful. I mean if one was to have a pair of scissors or finger and toenail clippers, these things we're sexy.Mischa Zvegintzov  04:56So you know I even tried saving the you know the whenever I would end up in the emergency room at the hospital I would you know they'd be like hey you want the scissors for the stitches because I was always seems getting stitches you know crashing my mountain bike.  Or surfboard fans to the head.  Or insert insert my clumsiness here. It has been a while since I've gotten stitches though. Kinda it's kind of been a few years by now. Yeah, perhaps it is two years maybe I don't know. Doesn't matter you get what I'm saying? Like yeah, the surgical steel will work! No! Those don't work either. And so I recently was at Funnel Hacking live in Florida, which was epic. So good ignited so much inspiration.  But I had it in my head that like the much of the stuff you buy at the airport gift shop or at the the hotel gift shop... You know you at the hotels or what have you you can you know, if you forgot your razor blades, you can go get a razor blade or you can get some dental floss or a mini toothpaste or whatever.  And I just had it in my head that that that all those products like that at these stores were of inferier quality. And so I forgot my frickin fingernail clippers and like, for whatever reason some people doesn't matter. I like maybe obsessively to have a pair of fingernail clippers and and so funny. This is this is not woundy this is full scar.  This is just letting you know my humaneness. Mischa Zvegintzov  07:12But so I go to the, it was called, the Gaylord Palms, the Funnel Hacking live 2021 was at the Gaylord Palms.  Big convention center, like all self contained, I know there was 320 500 or 3000 of us there. And other normal people were staying there as other I think other conventions were going on. So this thing can handle, you know, got three 4000 people or something like that. And since it's in Florida, it's all enclosed. So it's environment, what's the environment, you know, it's air conditioned, the perfect environment. And actually much of it, they somehow let a lot of natural light in places honestly pretty cool. Little dated.  Little dated, I'll say we're pretty cool, but it's really jonesing for my for my pair of scissors and missing them.  And I was like alright, let's go to that convention center gift shop and see what they got. And I stumble in there. But grudgingly contemptuously already knowing that there'll be nothing good and you have the regular old like fingernail clippers, which I just don't like. Not after my mom trained me to like a little bit better. Oh my god, the amount of... I bought special custom, you know, it doesn't matter. And then there's a little pair of scissors. And I look at them. They're probably $5 or $10 I don't know. But I just like hemmed and hawed. I'm like not another pair of crappy scissors. I just I've invested what seems like a small fortune in this stuff. You know, and I went ahead and bought them.  Get back to the room. Thinking I guess I have to suffer through this.Mischa Zvegintzov  09:26And crack the package. Guess what? I stumbled across the best scissors ever. The perfect replacement pair. Unbelievable. And I guess my point is, like, you just never know. Like, keep an open mind. Where's the inspiration going to come from? Where's the nugget going to come from? It can come from place that I think it's not going to come from.  Like I was like, absolutely thinking no way is the store gonna have anything and whatever I buy to suffice, I won't even worry about trying to get back in my you know frickin toiletry kit on the airplane or whatever.  And there it was. I guess so the other main lesson trying to set aside contempt be open minded and then especially if you think or I thought like like keep trying. Keep trying right. Keep trying that's the other thing. I tried again. I was like you know what, I'll try again. I'll throw caution to the wind. And the results were amazing. Anyway, funny little episode. I did my meditation and writing in the morning. I was like this is a really funny idea. And it was such a powerful moment for me when it when it happened. I just had to talk about it anyway, love to all,  Bye.

I will make no decisions. Today, I will make no decisions by myself. Part two. And the idea is that if I'm making no decisions by myself, or that our ego driven, small s self, ego driven, my selfish wants and desires. Versus I'm making joint decisions with that capital S self, making a joint decision, the small self, capital S, Self, God, whatever this is like, it's like teamwork. And so, part of this is, you got to be willing to believe that this is effective. And I am willing to believe.  I like I'm willing to believe so I'm willing to take the action.  Or perhaps you're not willing to believe try it anyway. Right, I would strongly encourage you, if you're like,...  Yo kids, kids on bikes, screaming by making funny faces, e bikes, so they're going really fast. Anyhow, you know, it's interesting, I believe, you don't believe that it's gonna work, you just have to be willing to try. You've just gotta be willing to try.Mischa Zvegintzov  01:33  And so this was the progression of this for me, I would read the notes that I just told you.  And in the morning visualize the day, and the thoughts, feelings, emotions, I wanted to have the experiences I wanted to have.  And then I would feel great, be super, you know, inspired, productive, boom, boom, boom. You know, a few hours later, cracks in that, in that inspiration start to form. And I was finding that it would take me way, many hours, as I, you know, it will take me many hours to fall back to the, to the idea. And to re visualize the kind of day that I want to have, right? So it's basically saying, Hey, if you fall off track, re-visualize that day you want to have. Start over. And then, you know, reconnect with, with making decisions with the capital S self. So I was finding it was being effective, when I would do that. And so I was like, dang, if I could just do it more, if I could just do this routine, more, if I could just, throughout the day, reflect and pause more. Like, and so I started to do that. Find, you know, a few more times to do it. And this is for when things are really hard in this entrepreneurial endeavor, and I'm really, at a rough, sticky, icky point.Mischa Zvegintzov  03:36  Most recent, it's been with the avatar work and, and shifting pivoting directions, and all the fears associated with that. So, you know, I'm going to get kicked out of my coaching group.  I'm going to offend people.  A lot of it's how am I going to look people will think that I'm doing the wrong thing or will judge me and so a lot of...  I'll admit it you know, insecurity and fear and, and self doubt, maybe, yeah, self doubt. And so, like, I'd like to shorten that pain loop, perhaps the pain have the pain loop, go away altogether. And and so, I want to read this next thing.  "If you are so unwilling to receive, you cannot even let your question go". So in this case, my question would be, which avatar Should I go with which, who's the perfect customer? "At least I can decide, I do not like what I feel now. And so I hope I have been wrong.  I want another way to look at this. Perhaps there is another way of looking at this. What can I lose by asking?"  Right, what can I lose by asking source your internal clock, God higher power, whatever. So creating space for that inspiration, being...go...You know what I'm not willing to, to, you know, do the process, but I'm willing to ask. I love that or you can read it read that however you want. But again, this has been this whole little process has been very powerful over the last couple of months. And so it culminated with, alright, visualize the day I want. And very effective. And then I would fall out of it. And it would take me a few hours, when I would come to, like a sticking point in my creative process around this entrepreneurial endeavor. So most recently that again, that's been the... which avatar am I going to use in this, this strong sense of time to pivot? And so the fear and insecurity that that brings up, and so whenever I would go back to visualizing the day I would feel new and newly inspired. Alright, God, let's make this decision together. Today, I will make no decision by myself.Mischa Zvegintzov  06:30  And I had this this sort of Epiphany, two epiphanies very recently. First one was okay. I, I, I can simply reflect and pause and tell myself the kind of day I want. And I don't have to go through like this for you know, meditative process visualization process, right? Like, it's already implanted deeply, in my mind, in my psyche. Now, like, I've visualized that day, very many times, over the past couple of weeks, or months, or whatever it is, months by now, you know.  Two months, perhaps whatever, exact timeline doesn't matter. And so, but, but to go back to that, it's time of agitation. And so then I fully had the inspiration, over the past couple of days. Continue to go to that thought, today, "I'll make no decision by myself", while I'm in inspiration while I'm in the flow. So don't even wait till you fall out of it, like accelerate the flow. Or, or you know, just stay in it. Yeah. So I've been doing that over the past couple of days, as I've been super creative. And feeling like I've been making decisions in partnership with God, my higher power, like going, alright, I'm in the zone. So pause, throughout the day, reflect and pause, and tell myself The kind of day I want. So keep in it.Mischa Zvegintzov  08:41  I guess that's how I could set I don't know, I'm so excited having so much fun playing with this and in my meditation this morning, and then my and then my note taking and you know, spiritual reading / work. I was just, I wrote down you kind of talk about this. So here I am talking about it. I encourage you to try it. Set aside contempt, the thought of Today I will make no decisions by myself. You'll make him with your higher power, whatever that means to you. And that visualize that kind of day you want the who you're going to encounter.  Which is for me, you know, creative supportive types that are in the same sort of flows process state, co creation.  You know, the thoughts feelings that I would have, how I'd feel I want to feel creative. I want to feel intuitive. I want to feel like the answers are coming easily. There there are no questions because I'm just doing it.  How about that just fully inspired. Anyway there you have it love to all let's keep at it.  Peace out.

Mafia Hitman Lib/E: Carmine Dibiase, the Wiseguy Who Really Killed Joey Galloby Michael Benson, Frank DiMatteo, Eric Jason MartinPublished September 28th 2021 by Citadel PressWho really killed Crazy Joe Gallo? It wasn't Frank The Irishman Sheeran as he claimed. Sober, he was nothing, but drunk he would blow your head off. That's how Pete the Greek described Carmine Sonny DiBiase, the Colombo crime family hitman who'd been terrorizing Manhattan's Little Italy since he was a kid. After beating and robbing a local tailor and doing time in reformatory, Sonny set up operations at the Mayfair Boys Civic and Social Club, an illegal poolroom where he shot and killed his best friend on Christmas day . . . A prime suspect of this and other crimes, Sonny went on the lam and off the grid for seven years. He then surrendered himself to police, was tried for murderm and sentenced to death. But after a second trial, he walked away a free man--free to kill again. Joey Crazy Joe Gallo and his President Street mob waged a deadly Mafia civil war with the Colombo crime family, and in particular, Carmine the Snake Persico. And on that fateful night of April 7, 1972, in a Little Italy restaurant, Gallo was assassinated . . . by Carmine Sonny DiBiasi . . . This is the true story of who really whacked Crazy Joey Gallo on that fateful night of April 7, 1972.We Keep the Dead Close: A Murder at Harvard and a Half Century of Silenceby Becky CooperPublished November 10th 2020 by Grand Central Publishing1969: the height of counterculture and the year universities would seek to curb the unruly spectacle of student protest; the winter that Harvard University would begin the tumultuous process of merging with Radcliffe, its all-female sister school; and the year that Jane Britton, an ambitious twenty-three-year-old graduate student in Harvard's Anthropology Department and daughter of Radcliffe Vice President J. Boyd Britton, would be found bludgeoned to death in her Cambridge, Massachusetts apartment. Forty years later, Becky Cooper a curious undergrad, will hear the first whispers of the story. In the first telling the body was nameless. The story was this: a Harvard student had had an affair with her professor, and the professor had murdered her in the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology because she'd threatened to talk about the affair. Though the rumor proves false, the story that unfolds, one that Cooper will follow for ten years, is even more complex: a tale of gender inequality in academia, a 'cowboy culture' among empowered male elites, the silencing effect of institutions, and our compulsion to rewrite the stories of female victims. We Keep the Dead Close is a memoir of mirrors, misogyny, and murder. It is at once a rumination on the violence and oppression that rules our revered institutions, a ghost story reflecting one young woman's past onto another's present, and a love story for a girl who was lost to history.

If you look at life's problems in this same way, by visualizing yourself up close as well as far away from the problem, you can begin to see new things. You can see the details in a new way. You may find that things aren't as they seem right now. You begin to open the mind to new details and new paths and perspectives and that is the most important aspect of growing.  Please join Addict to Athlete's Patreon support page and help us turn the mess of addiction into the message of sobriety! https://www.patreon.com/addicttoathlete For more information on Team Addict to Athlete and Addiction Recovery Podcasts please visit our website. https://www.AddictToAthlete.org

And yeah, I'm out walking, by the way. So there's lots of kids out this afternoon, lots of soccer players, lots of moms, lots of coaches, lots of dogs. So we may have some distractions. Anyhow, today, I will make no decisions by myself. And this assumes the idea that you're going to... I'm going to make decisions with God, or the capital S inner-self, that internal clock, that internal guidance, some people like to say it that way. You know, the infinite mind the Infinite Intelligence, you know, the universe, the gods. I used to love to say the gods for a while. But that I'll make no decisions by myself, which assumes ego, ego driven by myself small s self. Implies, that ego driven. This is an idea, the way this is framed is my perception or my understanding of something that I had read a couple of months ago, in A Course In Miracles. Everybody, by this point knows how much I love A Course In Miracles, and how powerful a spiritual tool that is in my life.Mischa Zvegintzov  01:55So this also, in for anybody who's, you know, in recovery, so I've been in recovery for a long time, and, you know, the idea that's floated around in recovery a lot. And I'm sure it's the same idea that's floating around, floated around in church a lot, or, I'm sure a lot of, you know, positive mindset, speakers, thought leaders, etc. You know, point to the same thing. Sorry, you atheists out there, you might be left hanging out to dry, but you probably have somebody that, or something you can point to as well. But that was an awesome digression. So, in recovery, you know, there's this idea of, Hey, God, how can I be of service, how can I be of service, Thy will not mine be done. This isn't an original idea to life or a way to live life, it's just, that's where that idea was presented to me in recovery. And so, you know, some of the 12 step literature can point to, you know, when you wake up in the morning, take some time, try and get aligned with your higher power. And then, you know, take appropriate action, and then you'll be more inspired throughout the day. And who doesn't want to be inspired, I want to be inspired. I love being inspired. Inspired lends to happiness and fulfillment. And, you know, moving from the heart and all the stuff. You know, spiritual success, you're climbing the right ladder, lord knows I've climbed the wrong ladder. And then, you know, and some in some of the 12 step literature, it'll point to, as you go throughout the day, try and turn back to that, to that idea, like when you're agitated. God, you know, Thy will not mind be done. You know, God, I'm no longer running the I'm no longer running the show. Your will not mine be done. To try and come back and get grounded re get into inspiration. And so I've been playing with this idea for a very, for decades now.Mischa Zvegintzov  04:31That I came across it in the Course in Miracles which framed it in in this new way where Today I will make no decisions by myself. And so in the morning, in my morning routine, I've been leaning heavy into that. All right, I'm going to make no decisions by myself. And then it... A Course In Miracles says effectively, "if resistance strong and and dedication week, think about the kind of day you want. And tell yourself, there is a way in which this very day can happen. Just like that. There, there is a way, there is a way in which this very day can happen just like that. Then try again, to have the day you want." And I love that idea. So, I very much recently have been visualizing. And this has been a working process this. And it's been working very well as of late. But anyway, visualizing like this this day that I want. And, you know, I want to be inspired. I want to feel like I'm creative. I want to feel like I'm in the flow. I want to, I want to feel like the kind of day I want, I want things to come to me easily. I don't want to, you know, stress and wonder about which direction to take.Mischa Zvegintzov  06:10And as I'm on new entrepreneurial endeavors, I can have a lot of that sort of chaos, zipping through my mind, constantly questioning a course of action. Right? So I'm finding like, yeah, there'd be some great times to, to, to, you know, to turn back to this "today I'll make no decisions by myself" idea. So I think visualizing, sort of this day, I want how I want to fee.  And and then it goes on, throughout the day, reflect, pause, and tell myself, the kind of day I want.  The feelings I would have the things I want to happen to me. And the things you would experience and say, "if I make no decisions by myself, this is the day that will be given me. I have no question. I forgot what to decide." And, obviously, we forgot to decide, or what I forgot to decide is that I'll make no decisions by myself ego driven decisions. And so I've found that as I've taken the time to try to visualize the day that I want, the experiences that I want to have, like the inspirational piece supportive people that I'm going to meet.  That, that I'm writing down ideas that are flowing through I'm not fighting these moments, I'm in embracing these moments, with all and wonder.  And having fun, fun, like I'm having fun. It's not a chore, it's fun. And and as I run long on this episode, I will I'll tell you that I am having success, but that I've definitely got more to say in this regard. So let's talk more episode two.

Shifting from the healing modality avatar to the business minded avatar.  There's a way to bridge those two.  How can I be of service with this?  Oftentimes a big source of my problems is me trying to think my way through it.  Who do I need to talk to quickly?  I'm really aware in this moment of how much I am concerned what other people are gonna think.

How can I be of service? How can I be of service and what can I bring to the table? I am trying to keep that in the forefront of my mind. And as I fight this new idea of this new avatar. right. and shift more towards business, this side of things.  Strategy which I love. Business it's a part of me that's that's been rekindled as I come out of you know, being a stay at homeish dad wandering with intention. And very excited about it and but it is causing me turmoil as I've put a lot of time and effort into the Tools For A Good Life Summit and the end, sort of that more of a healing modality type of Avatar.   What's really cool I do believe, though, is there's there's a way to bridge those two. And I, I haven't really figured it out yet. And so I'm going to talk a little bit about that on this episode, but also a really cool breakthrough. I don't know if breakthrough is the right word, but just some freedom I got for, for asking for some help in this regard.Mischa Zvegintzov  01:36But the 2CCX coaching group that I'm in, which I'm obviously always talking about, because it's such a big part of my life, is rolling over to, you know, a new, a new course curriculum.  Nott full sail, changes, but definitely changes and so I feel a little hung out to dry. As, as I'm on my island, I can tend to be on an island when I'm trying to figure things out. So as I, as I sort through, needing to do an Ask campaign for what, what, what all you all on my current email list would want, as far as you know, a course or a challenge or, or something like that. I'm battling with the avatar thing, too. So this, this episode is a little wound'ee. Hopefully, by the time it goes up, I'll have all these answers. Clear as a bell, that's what I'm hoping. So that way, by the time I publish it, I'll be able to laugh, laugh at myself. And I think along this the ideas of service of how I can be of service with this. So you can see the struggle, if if you're coming behind me, you can see the struggle of trying to dial in who you're going to help how you're going to help them, you know, just new ventures. And then if you're ahead of me, you can encourage me to catch up with you and into perhaps show me show me show me the better lit path. And if you're side by side with me, well, we can laugh and cry together.Mischa Zvegintzov  03:36But, you know, I consistently get this when I focus on this new idea. And don't let the fear of a full pivot take over. I'm generally content. So where am I going with this? All right, where I'm going with this is I'm I've as I felt alone on the island and trying to get answers and think my way through it, which is oftentimes a big source of my problems is me trying to think my way through it. In my in my journaling at the end of the night, in some meditation, it came clear, the answer came clear. Hey, you know, there's a question in my journaling. That's who do I need to talk to? Effectively? Who do I need to talk to quickly? Is there something I need to tell somebody along those lines have a question? And it's like yeah, I need to communicate with the open classroom with the open hours of the classroom with the with the with the coaches in this to 2CCX. I need to bring up my fears and I need to be vulnerable and I'm scared to do it in the open classroom setting because other people are going to are going to be there. And perhaps judge, right. I'm really aware in this moment of how much I am concerned what other people are gonna think. Right? And maybe I get thrown out of this whole thing? And if so, what if and so what?Mischa Zvegintzov  05:32But, um, so I trusted my intuition open hours were open until the open classroom out of the open office hours for the coaches. We're open today until 2pm, Pacific Standard Time. And of course, I jumped in at at 135 or something like that. And, you know, had to wait 10 minutes till it was my turn. And so I got the last 15 minutes effectively, but it just, I guess the point of all the of this whole episode is really, when I jumped on the the Open Office Hour, the coaches, open office hours and was willing to be vulnerable, and share my insecurities and my fears. I immediately got great input and great answers, great ideas, great strategies and tactics. But I also had freedom, freedom of the mind. And it was extremely clear. As soon as I got off the call, I was like, Oh, yeah. Okay, like, although the curriculum has changed, the way that I get to interact with the coaches has changed. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Like, I just was very clear how averse to change I can be.  And when it's changed, that brings me uncertainty.  Versus change that's like, I know is bringing good. You know what I'm talking about, right? Um, anyhow. So it felt really good to go in the classroom and, and, you know, get clarity on I got clarity on where the whole curriculums going, more concise vision of what I'm trying to do like it because it's very clear to me right now that when I have ambiguity in the curriculum that I'm following, like, that's no good for me.  Or I need to express it and and healthily deal with it. Right? Some people like a looser guardrail, in that regard.Mischa Zvegintzov  07:55What else can I say? Just trying to communicate? You know, I, I was hoping, before I continued with episodes in this vein, I was hoping to have answers, right. I was hoping to be well, on the path well, on one avatar path or the other. But I'm not. And it reminded it definitely reminds me of, of that of when I was in such turmoil with the summit. And then all the sudden one day, you know, I had a conversation with Robert, I believe his name was there's the Robert interviews. I think it's 1, 2, 3. Robert, number one, number two, number three, perhaps, Robert P. But that's where the inspiration for the Tools For A Good LIfe Summit was solidified. And so I'm confident that some of that will continue, or that type of inspiration will continue on the avatar, just perhaps not in my timeframe. Anyway, thank you for letting me ramble. Thank you for listening. Thank you for your support. I truly, truly do appreciate it. And if you're with me on this entrepreneurial and spiritual journey with me, you know, God bless. We'll keep trying one day at a time.

Even more specifically, who perhaps, God wants me to help, or the infinite intelligence or the universe with the creative mind, that capital S inner self. Oh my gosh, I've got all these Apple products. And I tried to silence them all for when I record, but I got a new iPad Air 4 I think it is. So I could start taking notes everywhere instead of on yellow pads on an iPad, which has been awesome and amazing. And I strongly encourage everybody to go after it. The pen works you know, the Apple Pencil is freaking awesome. The the tech is fine. You can... it's really cool what you can do and organize and, and all that stuff. There's some bumps as I break away from the yellow pads as much but that's okay. Oh my god, where was I going with all this so?Mischa Zvegintzov  01:43Break breathe. So the last episode I recorded, I'm going to give you a little insight to a little secret, which you may or may not know. But you can record six days episodes in a two hour setting. For example, if you were doing if you were doing 8 to 12 minute episodes. podcast episodes, an eight to 12 minute episode every day, and you were to record five of those. What's that? An hour and a half? Let's say. you know, let's assume each one is 10 minutes. On average, that's 15 minutes. Perhaps you have a minute or three or four break in between. So your... the illusion of the timeline is just that. Like perhaps the last episode that that I recorded in this line of thinking of who's my avatar and who am I going to serve? There's that damn iPad 4 beeping at me again, distracting me. Damn you, Apple. Where was I? Oh my gosh, this is just awesome. A quick side note. It's really funny. recording an episode every day to your podcast, blog or YouTube channel. It can feel in the moment like this moment right now incredibly self centered. Um, what's that narcissistic. Someone said to me and not have service in the moment as a microcosm, is that the right word? As a small brief window of the whole thing. Like if I just look at this episode right here, it could sound like "Oh, Mischa is just talking about his own stuff. Blah, blah, blah." But in reality, it is truly helping me be of service to you and the world and my developing niche in a better manner.Mischa Zvegintzov  04:16So how about that? So in the moment to anybody just jumping in on this episode. They could be like, Who is this narcissist talking about himself. But in reality, it's helping me find my voice, the elusive voice and I'm definitely gaining ground. Opened up all these these thought loops. I apologize. I seem to be very good at that being distracted. So be it. Welcome to the journey. If you are a fledgling funnel hacker, a fledgling online a fledgling if you're a fledgling Online Business creator, how's that you're trying to create, go go online with a business create an online business? If you're a fledgling person, entrepreneur, online entrepreneur, how about that a fledgling online entrepreneur, or a fledgling funnel hacker means you're kind of brand new to it all. Then perhaps if your vision is not super clear, like some people jump into this game, and they have this, I meet them all the time, their vision is so pure and so clear. Like, how awesome is that? It's so easy to just, well, looks easy'er to, to follow the instructions on how to build your online business, right? And so I am a fledgling funnel hacker that's really good at following the steps and implementing the steps. Like get each step each successive step done. And you will be that much closer to the Two Comma Club Award. That's the goal as a fledgling Funnel Hacker is to get clarity and get vision and get to that Two Comma Club Award. So I can help people do that. So actually, I'm committing to that. Trying one day at a time to commit to that. And whenever I veer away from that, these days, it gets really painful, psychically painful, more painful to veer away from it than the pain to press forward with it. How's that?Mischa Zvegintzov  06:45So I'm sorry, divorced dads, or you or you, high performers that have fallen off the horse, and are ready to get back on. Actually, you can still be my avatar, you are part of that avatar. Because creating an online business and crafting a new vision. That's what I'm doing. Crafting a new vision. I need to write that down. Thank you crafting a new vision. Word my pen go. I'm writing this down. Thank you patients. I suppose I could hit pause. I'll do that. See, thank you. That's, that was me. That was the process and actually crafting the vision forward. I love that. So one of the hats that my you know what? Oh my gosh, I'm so excited. That's such a juicy little thing. So you find all hackers out there that are ready to blaze the trail to the two comma Club Award, and would like help in that regard by following the path doing the blocking...block... blocking and tackling. Implementing the key steps. I'm still talking, figuring out how to talk about it. That's where we're going. That's where I'm going. And whenever I go back to the capital S inner self, the higher intelligence that's where I'm led. And one of the hats of the people within that could be a high performing dad, excuse me a high performing get divorced dad wanting to get back on the horse, or just a high performer who's ready to get back on the horse.Mischa Zvegintzov  08:47A little bit of babbling going on here. But that is that thank you for hanging in there with me. Thank you for being a part of the process. Thank you for helping me craft the broader vision. Refine my vision. I can actually tell you the exact episode by publishing every day where that happened. I can tell you where and when the new inspiration came to me. I can tell you where I flip flop back to the old and then where the new vision was presented again "This is it. This is it show no fear". That's what I've got little little little fuzzy but brain was cranking I wanted to I wanted to record. I have. And yeah so... I am going to show... what... I'm going to be... try to hold conviction on this new avatar. You fledgling funnel hackers that would like to solidify your path your vision to the Two Comma Club Stage to $1 million in gross revenue. That's what that is the Two Comma Club. I'm writing down again, your path, your vision to the Two Comma Club Stage. So basically you fledgling online entrepreneurs that would like to get to a million dollars in annual revenue, gross revenue. I'm your man. Your fledgling, you're just getting started. I can help you. I'm a few steps ahead. And I am doing it. I'm so good at sticking to the the steps. I've done it in so many different ways in my life, areas of my life and had success putting engines in cars. Getting clean and sober. Became a yoga teacher. It's hyper competitive to be a yoga teacher here in Encinitas, California. The hotspot of yoga teaching. I could go on and on That's it. I'm done. I will not hold you hostage any any longer. I believe I close the loop answered the question, addressed the point. Peace out.

Today we're talking to comedian and podcast host Bridget Phetasy about her life and how her views have changed over time. Bridget was more or less a typical liberal Democrat for much of her early adult life, before being unintentionally dragged into the culture wars. She talks about leaving the Left, how she navigates having heterodox views in an increasingly polarized world, and how her faith in a higher power has been strengthened after her amazing story of beating addiction, meeting her husband, and getting pregnant. **Please note: this conversation is for a mature audience** --- Today's Sponsors: Alliance Defending Freedom has challenged the employer vaccine mandate in court, but they need your help.
