The James Swanwick Show

When was the last time you traveled somewhere new? Today I’m joining you from The Ronald Regan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, which is about 45 minutes north of LA.  And I want to talk about the importance of getting out of your normal environment and your comfort zone. Going somewhere new is a great way to see different lands and also a perfect time to do some “deep thinking.” It’s not often we can take time out of our busy days and just be still for 30 minutes. But when you’re able to do this, good things happen…. new business ideas come up, valuable insight arises, and you become very present by noticing the subtleties of life.  How different would your life be if you thought deeply everyday?  Enjoy the show!

Today I’m recording live from Tai Lopez’s retreat in West Hollywood. And right now there’s a group of 6 of us running down through Runyon Canyon, getting a great workout in.  Running with us is Dr. Jeff Donatello, who has dedicated his practice to helping people with chronic conditions through the use of functional medicine and nutrition.  In regards to genetics he believes that your parents give you the “gun” and you are responsible for putting the “bullets” in it.  So your overall state health is mostly dependent on the lifestyle choices that you make.  A small percentage does come from your parent’s genes, but the majority is up to you.  Enjoy the show!

Don’t follow your passion? Yes, you might be scratching your head reading this one…. But today I’m speaking with my mentor Tai Lopez on why this has some truth. In any successful business or venture that you do in life, there has to be some element of passion. But what we are talking about today is the cliché…that you must have a career in something you absolutely love. But what you like and what you are most passionate about, doesn’t always translate into excellence or business success. Today Tai explains that the only real way to make an impact in the world is to become an “expert.”  Then once you become an expert you must be able to capture that value.  For example, you could be the best musician in the world, but if you’re unable to sell albums and capture that monetarily, then is that success? Listen is as Tai explains how to create massive impact and discover your Eulerian destiny!

The James Swanwick show is 1 year old today.  On March 17th, 2014 I launched the first podcast episode, if you can believe it.  Thank you so much for tuning in and listening…If you’re a long term listener all the way back to when the show was called “Alpha Male Club,” a special thank you for sticking with the show.  It’s been an incredible journey to say the least, and I look forward to bringing you more interviews, stories, and insight in the year to come. Enjoy the show!  Let me know what you think on twitter and instagram @jamesswanwick   www.jamesswanwick.com

Do you need alcohol to give you that extra courage when approaching the opposite sex? Well today I’m here with Owen Cook of Real Social Dynamics. He’s been on the show a few times, but if you’re not familiar with Owen, he teaches people social skills and the art of attraction. He coaches men how to be better with women and vice versa.  And today we are talking specifically about alcohol and attraction.  So often the two go hand in hand, but do we really need the substance to attract the opposite sex?

Welcome to a special episode of the James Swanwick show. Today marks 5 years to the date, since I quit alcohol. It’s my 5 year no drinking anniversary. And I still get asked this question quite often, “How and why did you stop drinking? Did you have a problem and an addiction beforehand?”  The truth is, I wasn’t an alcoholic back then and I really didn’t have a problem.  But I was drinking on the weekends, and I generally felt sluggish and run down. So I decided to embark on a  30-day break from beer and alcohol, and see how I felt as a result of the experiment. After the 30 days, I loved how I felt…I lost weight, saved money, gained confidence, and was more energized throughout the day. Now I don’t want to walk you through my entire story here, but today I want to share something that I’ve created called “The 30 Day No Alcohol Challenge.”  Yes-It’s 30 days without a single drop of alcohol! Would you be up for the challenge, or would you cave in? If you want to check it out, you can go to “30 day no alcohol challange.com”   There you can see a picture of me when I was 220 pounds (next to Jennifer Aniston), compared to 194lbs, where I’m at now.  Enjoy the show!

Welcome to another episode of the James Swanwick show! This past weekend a few friends and I attended the Wonder Woman Tech Conference, close by in Santa Monica. And today I’m going to play some of the audio from our fascinating Uber ride we had along the way. The Uber conversation topics ranged from the grass vs. corn fed cattle debate, the damage that artificial light can cause you, what the second smartest animal on the planet is(behind the human being of course), and much more.

Welcome to another episode of the James Swanwick show.  It’s a Tuesday night here, and I’m having my apartment warming party at my new place in West Hollywood.  Just to set the scene, I have about 22 people in my apartment where we’re all gathered. It’s a potluck party so everyone’s brought a different dish. And the food everyone brought was amazing…. you can actually check out the spread on my Instagram and see all the delicious dishes. In this episode I will be playing some of the sounds from the night, as I mingled with everyone and interviewed some of the fascinating guests here at my place. And I encourage you to plan your own potluck too!  It’s a great way to catch up with old friends ,while not have to worry about traveling all over town just to connect.  All you have to do is invite 12 or so friends and tell them to bring 1 friend each. That way you can meet up with old friends and have the opportunity to connect with new ones too. I will usually host them midweek, on a Tuesday or Wednesday night, since many people are too busy on Friday and the weekend. So get out there and host your own potluck party, and let me know how it goes. Enjoy the show! Let me know what you think on twitter and instagram @jamesswanwick   www.jamesswanwick.com
