Check it out! I’m excited!

I’ve been in the lab again cooking up some new goodness for you.

As you know, I really dig on audio as a format for self-expression. I love doing audio posts like these. Plus there’s the Havana Cafe Sessions Podcast that I co-host with Sarah Hunt. And more recently, I’ve been making audiograms like these:

And now…

drum roll, please…

I bring you the Coach’s Notes audio experience. I won’t go into too much detail here, because, well you can listen to what I have to say about it in the first episode, which is all about the what and the why of the Coach’s Notes podcast.

So without further delay, here’s episode number 1:

Let me know what you think. Oh yeah, I mention my eAcademy in this episode and said I’d provide a link.

Oh, and one more thing, you can subscribe to the podcast via RSS feed to your favorite podcast listener. You can’t subscribe via iTunes yet because I’m just on episode one. It’ll probably take about a week or so before the podcast is available in iTunes. Of course, you can subscribe to my newsletter and get notified that way too.

We’re on our 4th season with the Havana Cafe Sessions podcast and still having fun. If you’ve never tuned in and listened, you should. It’s a conversational podcast about life – stuff we have questions about, stuff we’re reading, stuff we’re watching and, yeah the stuff we’re dealing with in real life.

We put this little teaser video together to show you some behind the scenes clips of us doing our thing. The US being me and novelist, Sarah Beth Hunt

I’m currently wrestling with the question: what does it mean to be my most evolved and authentic self?

This got me thinking about the human potential movement again, and whether or not it’s possible to re-engage with the movement when it was in its nascent state, back before it got mixed up with a lot of new age mumbo-jumbo.

Re-engaging with the Golden Circle

I never know how this works to say he is a great man means what exactly? What makes one great? Not wars, at least not according to Yoda.

And yet I can’t understand his scribbles, but at least I am having a cracking good time in this crazy mixed up town. Sleep wants me, but I don’t want sleep. It’s overrated at best, so I resist.
