Listen to the Podcast Below!


Do you ever wonder what your most incredible self is truly capable of, if you were given half the chance? What you could do, build, achieve, design how you could thrive or shine, if only there was a way!

Well if this sounds even remotely like you (and this means pretty much all of us) then do we have the show for you!

In this episode, we chat with Bernard Roth, co-founder of the Stanford D. School, one of the world’s pioneers in robotics, and the primary developer of the concept of the Creativity Workshop. He’s one of the most empowering people you’ll ever meet, and he’s also the best-selling author of one of my new favorite books on achieving your dreams, called The Achievement Habit: Stop Wishing, Start Doing, and Take Command of Your Life.

We’ll talk about moving past the what if’s and the if only’s… so you can stop wishing and start doing, and take command of your life to achieve goals you once never thought possible.

Plus we’ll discuss the power of “crap-ups” and why streaking may be exactly what you need!
