Do you ever dream of leaving the 9 to 5 and traveling the world? Today we are talking all about the art of travel and giving back. Now I like to consider myself a fairly well traveled person, having been to over 40 countries...but I’m not much of a traveler compared to our guest today. I’m happy to welcome Leon Logotheits, who’s a British born author, TV host, global adventurer, and traveler to over 90 counties.  But life wasn’t always so fulfilling for Leon.  He used to be a broker in the city of London where he felt uninspired and chronically depressed. But he decided to give it all up for a life on the road. This radical life change was inspired by the inspirational movie The Motorcycle Diaries. The days of living and working behind his ‘slab of wood’ were truly over. Enjoy the show! Let me know what you think on twitter and instagram @jamesswanwick and www.jamesswanwick.com

Get comfortable feeling uncomfortable. How often to you put yourself in uncomfortable situations throughout the week? I’m not talking about risky circumstances that could potentially harm you, but the kind that allow for personal growth and discovery.  Today I’m joining you from Runyon Canyon, in Los Angeles, where I’ve just finished up some cardio training. And it’s absolutely beautiful atop the hill here, as the sun is setting, and people are walking their dogs and smiling to one another.  How can I create more amazing experiences? In reality the only way to    push yourself, go on exciting adventures, and meet fascinating people is by breaking through your comfort zone. And yes, it’s going to be uncomfortable, but it’s necessary to feel and internalize the discomfort in order to progress along the journey. So when was the last time you took an uncomfortable leap and expanded your horizon? Enjoy the show! Let me know what you think on instagram and twitter @jamesswanwick and www.jamesswanwick.com

Did you ever have a coach growing up? If you played sports or were on any kind of team, you most likely had a coach guiding you along the way. But why do most people graduate from coaches after school is over? Some of the all time greats such as Michael Jordan, Warren Buffett, and Sir Richard Branson all had mentors throughout their careers. But when is the right time to get a coach again? Joining us on the show today is the CEO of coach.me, Tony Stubblebine.
