Outside a Bronx Nightclub stands 25-year-old, Aaron Cedres. He’s working as a bouncer. A fight breaks out, and a confusing brawl of more than a dozen people leaves one man ends with a broken jaw and deep cuts to his head and back.

Aaron, who has no prior criminal record, is charged with gang assault. If convicted, he faces a possibility of 25 years in prison.

The prosecutor in the case says tells Aaron that he’s obtained the surveillance footage from outside the club and urges him to take a plea deal of 5 years behind prison.

Aaron is appointed Kristin Bruan, a Senior Staff Attorney at Legal Aide Society, to defend him. He tells a different story. As the bouncer at the club, it’s his job to break up fights. Aaron says he threw one punch between two men who were in physical altercation, and that’s it. He insists the footage with exonerate him.

Unfortunately, in New York state, prosecutors can wait until just before trial to supply the defendant with key evidence such as witness names, statements and video footage.

For Kristin, making life-altering decisions with extraordinarily imperfect information, using her gut and her tenacity to fight for justice, and drawing on passion to keeping moving forward.

Today’s podcast is a story about a real and ongoing, “WTF am I doing with my life?” moment from Kristin, who had to making life-altering decisions with extraordinarily imperfect information. She’ using her gut and her tenacity to fight for justice, and drawing on passion to keeping moving forward.

This past week, I attended Podcast Movement and had a really tough time on Day 1. Here's what I learned about networking and also about a pitfall many of us can fall into when reaching for our dreams.

Milana Leshinsky moved to the United States 25 years ago as a classical musician with zero knowledge of the business world when she decided to become an entrepreneur. Pretty immediately, she found success with a 6-figure business, but her goal was 7-figures. Years of hard work and long hours, she finally hit that million dollar mark, but it wasn't at all what she expected. And so - she quit and contemplated. 

The silence was terrifying yet necessary. Milana began asking herself questions like: 

  • How much money do I really need to be happy?
  • What am I willing and unwilling to do to achieve this goal?
  • Who am I when I am not running a business?

And out of this inquiry, her new business and approach was born--Simplicity Circle. Her company's mission is to take the frustration, stress and anguish out of growing a business by SIMPLIFYING. 

She says it's the key to happiness AND profitability.

The biggest shift that happened in my marriage is when I shifted my inner search engine from "he doesn't love me" to "he loves me." In this podcast I'll talk about why we tend to look for what's wrong or why not instead of what's possible. We dictate our lives by the questions we put into our search engine. With awareness and intention, we can shift the results and experience of our lives by revising our search.

A healthy lifestyle, at this point, is a no brainer in terms of living a long life with vitality. But why is it that even though we know we're supposed to eat healthy and work out, some of us still don't? The answer: mindset. 

JJ Virgin is a celebrity nutrition and fitness expert and author of four NYT Bestsellers including The Virgin Diet and JJ Virgin's Sugar Impact Diet. She comes on the podcast to talk about her latest book, The Miracle Mindset: A Mother, Her Son, & Life's Hardest Lessons.
