Regenerative Real Estate W/ Neal Collins #172022-09-05

This episode with Neal Collins really made me consider my beliefs around real estate… a place I’ve had mixed feelings about for quite awhile. As Neal says, real estate is the commodification of land and as such has become the epitome of the transactional world. He is doing amazing work with his company Latitude, where he and his team are attempting to re-imagine real estate as a relational model. We go far beyond the housing market, however, and dive deep into philosophy about our purpose and place on this planet, how the stories we hold shape our actions, our relationship with nature and each other, and so much more!

Transforming Suffering Into Inspiration W/ Daniel Beaupre #182022-09-12

Daniel Beaupre reached out to me after one of my previous episodes and shared a bit about his personal transformation journey. After my initial call with him, I knew his story had to be shared. Daniel was adopted as an infant and went through an incredibly traumatizing childhood, which ultimately led him to doing 11 years in prison. He is now on the other side of that and has completely changed his life around. He is now a professional boxer and an active member in his community. His hope is that his suffering is not in vain and that he can help inspire others who are going through hard times. His story does just that.

Leading from the Heart W/ Marcel Petitpas #222022-10-10

What is more important to you being right or pursuing truth? These two goals can often come in conflict with one another, and far too often our desire to be right can be the barrier to deeper connection. In this episode, Marcel Petipas and I dive deep into some of the greatest social and political challenges we are collectively facing: cancel culture, identity, politics, tribalism, political corruption, and so much more. We engage in constructive and nuanced dialogue with the common goal of deeper understanding. Marcel also shares his thoughts on the importance of emotional intelligence and critical thinking in navigating our complex world.  We will ultimately disagree with one another, and that's part of what makes life diverse and beautiful. And underneath all of that, it's so important to remember that there is more that connects us than there is that divides us. This episode with Marcel might just be my favourite episode yet. I hope you enjoy.
