Eriq La Salle

Season 1, Ep. 22
EriqLaSalleis a dear friend from back in the ER days when he playedDr. Peter Benton(and earned him threeNAACP Image Awardsand nominations for aGolden Globe Awardand threePrimetime Emmy Awards). What excited me about hosting him on the podcast was exploring the ways artists must proactively co-create their career longevity.To sustain a career that spans an entire adulthood requires deeply honed skills and next-level talent, not to mention a good amount of right time-right place luck. So much of winning in the arts is totally out of our control.However, what is inour control is the mental tenacity necessary to withstand challenging times which every artist willinevitably face. It’s exactly this angle I wanted to explore withEriqbecause he is an MVP of his own, very successful, career destiny. He has not missed a beat in creating a deeply rewarding expansive creative career. While he was winning as an actor, he was already creating his path as a writer and while he was pumping out novels, he was masterminding a deeply rich new chapter as a director and producer. This fascinated me because so many artists, especially actors, can be myopic about their gifts. As artists, we need to cultivate an expansive vision about our talents and see one road as an opening for several potential paths. We get into what a flexible, non-fixed mindset is as an artist and how to navigate your B and C plans while slaying your A plan. If you are in the arts, or a self-made creator of any kind, I think you’ll find this exciting and informative. Also, if you’re an actor,Eriqgives some not-to-be-missed insider tips about the long game.Eriqis currently the executive producer (and sometimes director) of NBC’s Chicago PD.More aboutEriq:is an American actor,director, writer andproducerknown for his performances in the filmsComing to America(1988) and especially asHe attended theJuilliard School's Drama Division for two years as a member ofGroup 13(1980–84),[2]then attendedNew York University'sTisch School of the Arts, where he earned aBachelor of Fine Artsdegree from the Graduate Acting Program[3In 1988,LaSallestarred alongsideEddie Murphyin the movieComing to Americaas Darryl Jenks.In 1994 themedical dramaERpremiered onNBCwithLaSallestarring asDr. Peter Benton. He held the role until leaving during the eighth season. He returned toERfor three episodes during its 15th and final season, including his uncredited appearance as himself in the opening of "Heal Thyself" to tell the audience of the death of the show's creatorMichael Crichton. Also during season 15, he returned to direct an episode.[6]

Kate Northrup Wants Us To Do Less

Season 1, Ep. 21
Ever since stumbling uponKateNorthrup’s10 day Money Love Challenge years ago - that created a massive $$$ shift for me, I have been a totalKatefan girl. Imagine my DELIGHT (!!!) when we podcasted - I mean WHOA!Some peeps go go-go over entertainment celebs - me? A bad-ass female entrepreneurs who focuses on helping women understand everything there is to know about money - from the spiritual, emotional to the cold hard material facts about how to DEAL WITH IT. Truly incredible work and what a revelation to get into how cleaning up the mess around finances (what I call Financial Feng Shui!) is an act of self-love. Yes, self-love. Add financial health to the list of manicures, hot yoga, and getting your roots done. It’s a true act of self-care to know, with unequivocalawareness, the state of our financial health. I had totally buried so much of this into the recesses of my mind - but over the past few years have awakened to the power of how important it is to be brutally honest with our financials.Of courseKate’s bookMoney, A Love Story- is a tome to this that every woman MUST READ!And now she has anew book!Do Less: A Revolutionary Approach to Time and Energy Management for Busy MomsDo I need to say more?Katehas a revolutionary approach to time management that every mom needs to read (ok, dads too not to mention NON PARENTS!)I can’t wait for you to listen. And for those of you who wonder about this stuff - yes, she is even yummier, more delightful, authentic, warm, lovely and BFF vibes IN REAL LIFE!More aboutKate!Northrup is a fierce advocate for revolutionizing the way we work, seeing and that women and working mothers are often under immense pressure to “just get it all done” at the end of the day without complaint.Northrup’s book is a practical guide for mothers and working women to learn how to do less, but to still remain productive, ambitious and overall, to not feel guilty about taking a moment to reprioritize and get focused. Northrup experienced a burn-out herself during her pregnancy, when she experienced extreme fatigue and wasn’t able to maintain longer working hours.Fearful that making this shift would affect her business, Northrup was shocked when her company earned just as much as when she was overworking herself to the point of exhaustion.In this interview we discuss:•What is the do less method, and how to step away from the concept that doing more is the only way to be productive and successful.•How to practice body first, business second and why taking care of your body first (rest, water, a snack) will increase your productivity.• The best way to streamline your to-do-list in order to do less and still reach peak efficiency•The importance of tracking your menstrual cycle in relation to your work, which will give you a better idea of what you should be prioritizing each week. For example, during your menstrual cycle is the best time for rest and reflection. While your physical energy might not be at it’s highest, your brain is most wired for connectivity and brainstorming.•Managing your energy and your emotions at the office.• Empowering yourself to be in a position to ask for help (Hint: it’s easier than it looks!)To hope on the fasting mimicking diet train with me - Our next PROLON group fast starts May 13th.Click herefor my link where you can get 10% off (that’s $25 a box plus free shipping) -use GROOMEDLA or GROOMEDLASUB(for a subscription).
