"They say time heals all wounds
I don't agree
Everyone needs a scar
They're all over me
They remind us where we've been
And they teach us where to go"
- Lyrics from the song, Scars by My Brothers and I.
If there is ever a time to do mushrooms, it might be at Glacier National Park with your husband or wife, am I right? That's what we did and we wanted you to come along for the ride with us. We recorded before and after our "trip" in an RV. Ahas and epiphanies ensue.
According to the book, "The Last Word on Power," by Tracy Goss, we all have winning strategies. These are patterns of thought and behavior that we have internally decided are the way we cope and thrive in life. She asserts though, that while these strategies have gotten us to succeed, they also limit us.
Dr. Mark Goulston is one of the most kind, interesting people I've ever met, so of course, I jumped on the opportunity to interview him.
His resume is extraordinary. He's been a crisis psychiatrist for 30 years, an FBI and police hostage negotiation trainer, UCLA professor of psychiatry for 25 years, authored & co-authored seven books including Amazon Best Sellers“Just Listen,”, Get Out of Your Own Way, and “Talking to Crazy: How to Deal with the Irrational and Impossible People in Your Life.”
But what strikes me most about Mark is that he is genuinely a "we" person. He is guided by what's best for the world, and his unique gift to it is knowing how to hack into people. Today on the podcast, Mark talks about how he was able to that as a suicide interventionist in the beginning of his career.
Most recently, Mark has been hacking entrepreneurs and teaching them how create the, "gotta have it" feeling in their customers. He teaches these concepts in an entertaining, informative and extremely unique way- by embodying Steve Jobs.

4. Yes - I found out what I can do with it. Sold!
