I know I say often about all of my guests, but I cannot set aside how incredibly excited I am about today's conversation.

This meetup was WAY overdue as my next guest and I had connected some years ago, even before the pandemic, and he has since become an incredible source of support, wisdom, kindness and inspiration. 

Christopher Salador is not just an expert Realtor with a proven track record spanning almost two decades. He also stands out as a gifted trainer, speaker, consultant and prolific content creator. 

His YouTube channel, which I highly recommend you subscribe to, is a worthy resource for both beginners as seasoned investors looking to get some useful and applicable tools to further their Real Estate knowledge.

On this episode, Christopher brings some energetic and powerful perspectives on the audacity to dream, embracing the uncertainty, purposely shifting one's mindset...and so much more.

You can connect with Christopher via his WebsiteFacebook, or Instagram

Also, be sure to tune in and Subscribe to his YouTube Channel for incredible insights and tips on getting your Real Estate adventure to the next level.

Enjoy.

It was always my goal with this podcast to bring you people and stories reminding you that you have more in common with those <Superstars> that you admire than you care to give yourself credit for.

In that regard, I found that the best way to do that is to introduce you to a couple of individuals, off the beaten path, whose warm generosity and powerful insights can offer just the right amount of perspective and guidance to help you along the way.

In conversation with my next guest, LaToi Storr, I couldn't help but feel a great sense of respect and appreciation.

As a Lifestyle Blogger, Speaker, Self-Care Queen, Anxiety Crusher and fellow Podcaster, Toi's incredible skill with sharing her story with words of sheer vulnerability and raw truth can leave some uncomfortable. Something she's well aware of.

Whether we're talking about post-partum depression, where to find the time to be creative, the accountability required to own our responsibility in toxic situations,...we all have something we can learn from one another and I believe that these are the more human conversations that need to be had. 

See, with all the noise and comparison that we often fall prey to, it's easy to believe that we are so messed up or damaged or unworthy, that we are the only ones going through what we're going through.

If you're one of those people convinced that there is nothing that special about you, your story or your particular journey, then today's episode is for you.

You can connect with Toi via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or her Blog.

Be sure to listen and Subscribe to her pocast, Conversations With Toi, available on

Enjoy.

On this episode, I setup some folding chairs and sit down (well, virtually anyway...) with the always entertaining and always exciting Stéphane Bazin, of Bazin Photography. As a successful photographer, podcaster, instructor and seasoned entrepreneur, this guy does indeed have a legitimate  sense of perspective which I wanted to tap into for this discussion.

We were exchanging rather intensely about the realization that most people, despite their best intention, often seem to neglect one of the most basic elements of achieving one's goals ...and that, we both had to agree, as ridiculous as it sounds, simply boils to just DO THE WORK.

Because 'The Grind' never stops.

A lively and ever-so engaging exchange that was definitely a blast thanks to Stéphane's always incredible personality and impactful insight.

You can connect with Stéphane via Instagram on both his personal feed and/or business page. Also on the Bazin Photography Facebook page.

I do hope you enjoy this conversation as we've enjoyed bringing it to you.

Mel Vandersluis is one of those incredible people that crosses your path and does not fail to leave a positive impression. 

We had randomly connected on a previous occasion and, even though it wasn't my initial intention, our conversation made such an impact on me, I felt compelled to extend a humble invitation to have her on the program.

Mel is a truly talented travel photographer, content creator and entrepreneur based in Montreal, Canada. With a passion for sharing the beauty of the world through her amazing images, her creativity and sense of purpose have not only earned the trust of an impressive catalog of high profile clients and brands, but also seduced an equally impressive amount of followers on Instagram.

Can't tell you guys how thrilled I am about this one.

In this period of forced isolation and notable dependency on our devices as well as Social Media platforms, I believe Mel is definitely a knowledgeable resource as her particular vantage point can help us be more mindful of our personal wellbeing during these trying times.

On this episode, Mel shares her personal insights on creating balance, the importance of journaling, embracing the chaos, digital detox and so much more...

You can connect with Mel via Instagram as well as her official website.

Enjoy.

When I was a kid, we watched this wonderful, iconic movie titled "Le Grand Bleu"(or "The Big Blue" in English) starring Jean Reno and Jean-Marc Barr. It's the beautiful, poetic and tragic story of the rivalry and what some would call a bond between two individuals who, through their chosen passion for free-diving, were not just competitors but also friends. I'm not gonna give you a long synopsis : if you care to see what happens when talent meets obsession, while also fuelled by the thirst to always push past your limits...just watch it.

I bring this up because, for some reason, in trying to find the right words to properly introduce today's guest, I struggled. Not because the words wouldn't come, but more because of this weird comparison that I could not shake off as I truly thought this was an appropriate visual for today's particular exchange.

I came across Xavier De Le Rue's truthfully incredible career as I was randomly playing a documentary on YouTube and his name got mentioned in passing. I would not have paid much mind to it had it not been for two particular details : First - he's got a really cool name. Second - ...there's just something about surviving an avalanche that I find interesting...

An established icon of Extreme snowboarding, Xavier's love and skills for both powder and big mountain riding have achieved worldwide recognition. Indeed, as a 3x Freeride Champion, 4x Boarder Cross World Champion, X-Games Boarder-X Champion, he boasts an incredible career spanning over decades. 

But don't let the celebrity and notoriety fool you : Xavier has also used his voice to further the efforts towards addressing the climate crisis by hosting The Sustainability Dialogues podcast with Dr. Johan Rockström and is also a dedicated family man, something we touch on in the latter part of the episode.

I am not an athlete but I have an undeniable respect and appreciation for those individuals, the peak performers, who, in every sense of the word are willing to lay it all out on the line for that one moment of unmistakable passion that gets them up in the morning.

On this episode, and with a generosity I am immensely grateful for, Xavier shares his incredible insight on the real dangers of the sport that are often overlooked behind the rockstar image, the passion that keeps fuelling him despite his already incredible journey, how skill and luck can coexist, trusting your gut, finding that moment of peace within our own lives...and so much more

Really excited to be back with you guys as we get to speak with an incredible individual with a truly remarkable story that stands out as a true example of both passion and purpose.

From his humble New Jersey beginnings,  and by overcoming his fair share of personal struggles, Dr. Alister Martin's own sense determination and fierce conviction eventually led him to both an MD from Harvard Medical School as well as a Masters in Public Policy from Harvard Kennedy School.

He is an emergency physician who straddles the worlds of medicine, public health, and social justice. He is also faculty at the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Social Justice and Health Equity at Harvard Medical School. 

Dr. Martin previously served as Chief Resident at MGH/Brigham Hospital. He now leverages his background in politics, healthcare policy, and the field of behavioural economics to use the ED as a place to build programs that serve the needs of vulnerable patients.

He leads programs that: transition homeless patients into permanent supportive housing, get patients struggling with addiction into recovery, and offer patients who are unregistered voters the opportunity to register to vote through a program called VotER. 

His work has been written about in the Boston Globe as well as NPR.

I'm honoured for Dr. Martin's generous time in being on the podcast as we discuss the selflessness of caring for our fellow human being, the importance of vision and purpose, being solution-driven when wanting to solve problems, relentless mindset...and so much more.

Dr. Martin's incredible parting quote :

"Lately I have come to the conclusion, and you may disagree, that pretty much every experience we have moves us either toward life or away from it. There are some things that suck the life out of you, that make you feel smaller and less human, that alienate you from yourself; they calcify your fear and carve a monument out of your emptiness. Then there are those that bring you closer to life, that grow in you the desire to create, to nurture, to see beautiful things and become them. This is the love that increases your attachment to people and animals, makes you smile at children or go outside to see the moon. Every experience is either life-affirming or life-denying.

There is just one trick. It sometimes happens that to move toward love — true, active, life-affirming love — means to move toward death."

He and I have not known each other that long, but as these things happen, when you realize that you both resonate on the same frequency, you run with it. What has since transpired is indeed a mutual respect as well as a growing friendship for which I am truly honored.

Mubariz Hayat, more commonly known among familiar circles as "Moby" for short - not THAT Moby - isn't just a savy Marketer, active podcaster, daring entrepreneur, insightful storyteller and ferocious content creator, but also, throughout our various interactions, happens to be an all-around warm and spirited individual. Qualities that truly stand out in this next conversation.

On this episode, one that was a long time coming, Moby shares amazing stories of his personal journey traveling from Pakistan to the United States, his patience, discipline and resilience while awaiting his green card, staying curious and trying different things along one's journey, and of course, never settling...

Through curiosity, kinship and just plain whimsical human interaction, I had the opportunity to connect with a guy a who has truly nothing short of a gentleman and a treasure trove of practical tips and amazing insights.

You can connect with Moby via his official Instagram page as well as Linkedin.

Another terrific conversation which I do hope you'll enjoy.

It's always refreshing to walk into an interview and not really know what will come out the other end.

This was another one of those opportunities where the individual definitely lived up to the hype.

Jamal Henry is a man of many talents - whether through his dynamic football career, his obvious dedication to his family as a husband and father, or as a published author, one could agree there are a few reasons why our conversation was such a thrill.

But what mostly stood for me was the genuine intensity and wisdom that Jamal brought to our conversation. Indeed, I got to sit down with a man driven by a palpable sense of clarity and commitment to his goals that I believe we can all take notes from.

On this episode, Jamal and I have an amazing exchange as we discuss the importance self-awareness, creating boundaries, setting a clear path for one's vision and so much more.

You can connect with Jamal via Instagram & Facebook.

Be sure to grab a copy of his book available on Amazon.

Enjoy

The story I thought I'd never get the courage to tell on this platform. 

Everything happens in due time.

With the hopes that my journey helps someone who needs to hear it.
