Last week I spent time with my family back home in Kalamazoo, MI. My mom and I had a tumultuous relationship when I was in high school. I couldn't wait to leave to go to college. I thought she was controlling and unreasonable. But I've grown up, and in many ways, she has too. With presence, you can find awe in the simplest of moments. Here's the life lesson I got while picking grapes with my mother.

Today’s world is GO GO GO, and for many people, doing and achieving has become an addiction (sheepishly raises hand). From the outside, it can look like drive and motivation, but on the inside, it can feel like a constant and endless search to feel “enough.”
You know you’re an addict if…
Today on the podcast, we tackle this topic with a former achievement addict and current Leadership Coach, Bristol Baughan. Keep in mind, as you read this bio, this is one human…
Bristol is an Executive Producer of Emmy-winning and Oscar-Nominated films and has had her work featured on HBO, Paramount, and Showtime. She’s founder of Inner Astronauts, a Leadership Coaching practice to support people in thriving at work and coming fully alive in service to the world.
After a decade of starting companies and making award-winning films she spent seven years studying behavior and consciousness around the world including a Master's Degree in Spiritual Psychology, a Mastermind Coach Training with Alyssa Nobriga, and hundreds of hours of one-on-one coaching.
She has learned skills across modern and ancient modalities including Person-Centered Psychology, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), Gestalt, and Somatic Meditation. She has gone on pilgrimage with Tibetan monks in India, studied Tantric & Hatha Yoga in Thailand.
Clearly, she is an action taker, but on the podcast, she opens up about healing from achievement addiction. We both come clean about where this need arises from, and how to take steps towards inner peace.
This past week I attended the Summit of Greatness and had the opportunity to see on my of my idols, Esther Perel, speak. I had no idea my biggest learning would come from the dude who cut me in line at the Q&A.
What is charisma?
According to Dictionary.com: “compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others.”
To bring it into visual terms-- bring to mind the most charismatic person you know. When they walk into a room, everyone notices. When they speak, people lean in. Others desire to be around them.
The next question is- Can you learn to be charismatic?
My guest today says YES! Charlie Houpert is a former shy guy and Co Founder of Charisma On Command, a Youtube Channel with over 1.2 million subscribers, dedicated to teaching people how to be charismatic. The videos are incredibly entertaining and informative about topics such as body language, mindsets shifts for confidence and how to use language effectively. He even uses real-life examples of how celebrities use their charisma to tell interesting stories, make people laugh and make themselves memorable.
According Charlie, “The idea that you are either born with it or you’re not is a destructive myth created by people who want to justify their own deficiencies. Charisma is a skill.” Charlie knows this first hand. He grew up painfully shy until he decided that to live his best life, he must learn to engage and connect. He immersed himself in learning. Charlie shares his story as well as actionable steps you can take today to up level your charisma.
