Episode 119: Creating A Soul-Life Balance & The Path To Do So (feat. Sam Kabert) When it comes to the idea of business, I have come to recognize that the people that are truly successful within this realm frame business as a game & an adventure. As such, these individuals find ways to not only keep business fun, but also excel in finding ways to “hack” the game if you will, both through marketing &, in many cases, helping others learn how to automate their businesses to allow for less on their plates. If there is one thing I have learned in business it is that tips & tools like the ones I mentioned previously are invaluable if you wish to be able to have time left in your day to spend with family, dive into your hobbies & be able to smell the roses of life while living life on your own terms as an entrepreneur. Todays guest on the show is an absolute juggernaut in the realms of business, including how to delegate using virtual assistants, generating & monetizing content as well as guiding entrepreneurs into how to create a soul-life balance within their lives. He is a serial entrepreneur, an author, has hosted 5 podcasts, including his most recent show, the Soul Seekr podcast, hosts a food show on YouTube, was named to Silicon Valley’s 40 under 40 list at the age of 31, & is an avid lover of all things spiritual, extraterrestrial & multidimensional, among many other topics that he is passionate about within his experience of life. For all of you high achievers out there that are curious how to find more fulfillment in life, this episode is sure to spark your inspiration & allow you to see that not only is it possible, but it can be much easier of a process than I imagine you had thought it could be up until now.Show Notes:(3:00) Sam’s intro into his spirituality & business.(15:39) Sam creating his own path and finding what may have been missing.

Sam KabertSam Kabert unconsciously played the game, mastered it, and cracked the code to what he was chasing: his dream life, filled with material successes, like running a million-dollar business and being named to Silicon Valley’s 40 Under 40 List at just thirty-one years old. Sam’s journey of self-discovery started with a plant medicine known as ayahuasca, an experience that invigorated a new passion and kindled a new purpose in his life. Sam has cultivated a deep knowledge for scaling businesses with virtual assistants, generating and monetizing content, and all things spiritual, extraterrestrial, and multidimensional, to fully embody the practice of SOUL/Life Balance. He is on a mission to help spread awareness around positive practices to tackle depression, sitting with discomfort, and exploring one’s shadow for healing, as well as sharing standard tactics to practice SOUL/Life Balance.Connect with Sam:Website: CloneYourselfUniversity.comWebsite: WizardTeams.comIG:  instagram.com/samkabertYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCramNwICpTb-z62twEcdFBgSoul Seekr Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/17i3xvuAhNxO80SVARfvnbThank you to our podcast sponsors!Freedom Builderz -&lt;

Episode 118: Creating An Individualized Approach To Cannabis Consumption (feat. Len May) For all of you who have been listening to this show for sometime now, you know full well my love & passion for the Cannabis plant. For me, Cannabis was the first teacher in my life that allowed me to question everything I thought I knew about life & the reverberation of that initial teaching has echoed throughout every corner of my life & allowed me to discover my own truth within my experience of life. One of the main challenges, however, within the realm of Cannabis, is that we each have unique endocannabinoid systems & particular physiology that, up until recently, has left many Cannabis users confused as to how to get the best results with this medicine. Todays guest on the show is a man who is not only a fellow Cannabis lover, but is also leading the way in taking the guesswork out of Cannabis by creating individualized dna tests for Cannabis consumers through his company, EndoDNA, that will not only match you with the right Cannabis products for your wellness journey, but will guide you in creating a personalized relationship with this sacred plant teacher. In addition, he is also the host of the “Everything Is Personal” podcast,  which dives into Cannabis, music, business, & science & which I was a recent guest on & had an absolute BLAST being a part of & is the author of “Making Cannabis Personal”, which is a book dedicated to exploring many of the same topics we will be discussing today within the realm of individualized Cannabis. This episode is sure to open your minds to the bridge between science & plant medicines & the potential benefits within combining these realmsShow Notes:(2:51) What got Len into DNA testing for cannabis.(15:05) Check out FreedomBuilderz.com! (21:39) Where edibles come into play & the benefits of going low and slow.(43:55) How to get consistency.(53:02) Follow the money…(1:01:04) Where you can reach Len.(1:02:35) Len’s final piece of advice for the listeners!Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle on Facebook! https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/totop
Episode 117: Why It’s NEVER Too Late To Create Your Best Life (feat. Amy Edwards) When I created this show, I did so with the intention of showcasing the endless opportunities & possibilities available to anyone, regardless of age, gender or location, when they choose to consciously begin arguing for their possibilities, rather than their limitations. It is my belief that when one can do this, especially in the times that their mind, friends & family & even society at large give them reasons not to, that they can initiate massive transformation within their lives. This does not mean that life will be easy, quite the contrary actually, however, life will inevitably challenge us whether we choose to make it challenge us for what we do want or challenge us for what we don’t want. In my experience, however, only one of those scenarios can allow us to see life happening FOR us, rather than TO us & allow us to experience the transformation within that flipping of the script. Todays guest on the show is a master in the art of transformation & has made it her mission in life to help badasses just like you overcome anything holding them back, rock life all the way & claim their best lives through up leveled habits, mindset shifts & more. She is the host of “The Amy Edwards” show, which is a show dedicated to helping its listeners achieve their healthiest selves, live their best lives & better their relationships, is an author, a rock & roll musician, a mother & if all of those hats weren’t enough, she is also a radio personality on Austin 360 radio. For all of you transformation freaks out there, this episode is sure to charge your batteries & allow each of you to tap into the inspiration necessary to create profound & lasting change within your life. Show Notes:(3:03) The things that frustrated Amy during motherhood. (4:57) Having breakdowns and an identity crisis. (8:48) How Amy moved forward. (25:51) Check out FreedomBuilderz.com! (28:45) Ketamine experiences. (51:54) Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle on Facebook! (1:03:30) Where you can reach Nate.(1:05:27) Amy’s final piece of advice for the listeners!https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/highlyoptimized
Episode 116: Finding Our Way Out of Life’s “Shit-u-ations" & Flipping Our Perspective On Them (feat. Nancy Benitez) If you’ve been in the realm of self development for even a little while, I am sure you’ve heard mention of things such as manifestation & the law of attraction. When I first heard of these things years back, they sounded too good to be true & so rather than just refute them altogether, I decided to play a game with myself & begin diving into them. Now that it’s almost a decade later, I honestly don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for that original experimental phase with these concepts, though I have a strong feeling it wouldn’t be anywhere close to where I am today, living the version of my life that literally feels like a dream each day. Stopping by to share her time & expertise on these topics & more with us today is a woman who as soon as we connected, we clicked & spent over an hour diving deep down the rabbit holes of manifestation, sound healing, plant medicines & more. She is the founder of “Art Of Attraction” & co creator of “In A Shituation” which both seek to help those who are suffering from limiting beliefs & limiting stories rise above them through simple, empowering practices that allow them to manifest more joy, happiness, love, wealth & health into their lives. In addition, she is also a Tedx speaker & truly walks the walk when it comes to practicing what she preaches & within this episode, we will be diving into her journey, her tips for those of you listening looking to create a positive change in your lives starting today & much, much more! Show Notes:(4:03) How Nancy got to where she’s at. (6:41) How Ryan got into fitness.(13:20) When Nancy is in alignment. (21:01) Check out FreedomBuilderz.com! (25:09) Nancy’s advice for living with purpose.(31:08) When Nancy met Ryan. (44:30) Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle on Facebook! (1:01:24) Where you can reach Nancy.(1:05:34) Nancy’s final piece of advice for the listeners!https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/totop
Episode 115: Following Your Heart, Overcoming Life’s Challenges & Laughing All The Way To The Bank (feat. Jessie Salas) Something that i feel is universal in our world is the notion that we will all inevitably face challenges within our lives. This being said, what separates the individuals that see those challenges as opportunities from the individuals who allow those challenges to become blockades that prevent them from overcoming them? In my experience, this difference rests on not only our mindset, but the subsequent views & perception we have upon the world around us. This is why I feel it is SO crucial to not only work on our mindset & dive into why we believe what we believe about life, but to also make friends with the inner critic within us that tells us we can’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t or shouldn’t consciously choose to embark upon a new way of living & see our inner critic as our best friend in disguise & the only aspect of us willing to beat us down in hopes of us using those criticisms to fuel us into the most epic journey of life possible for us in our lives. Todays guest on the show is a man who is a prime example of someone who has made friends with not only his inner critic, but also his fear & has allowed these positive reframes of these aspects of himself to propel him into living life on his own terms & creating the life of his dreams. He is a retired firefighter, where he spent 17 years passionately moving into some of the most dangerous situations on earth to help save other peoples lives, is an absolute juggernaut in the space of handling high stress situations & finding comfort within those discomforts & has now taken those experiences & moved into the role of program director for a system of training called Foundation Training, which is based on teaching how to take the burden of supporting the body out of your joints & put it back where it belongs, which is in your muscles. For all of you high achievers & go getters out there, prepare to go on a journey into how to not only re-evaluate what is possible for you, but to ensure you are able to stay balanced, regulated & healthy while shooting for the stars in your experience of life. Show Notes:(3:00) Jessie’s enjoyment of fighting fires, working under pressure & human design .(22:35) Fueling your passions, avoiding falling into victimhood & being your own biggest cheerleader.(44:00) Claiming your day, the importance of breathe work & always being open to learn.(1:33:44) Quinn’s final piece of advice for the listeners!Check out our sponsor: FreedomBuilderz.com!  Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle on Facebook! https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/totop
Episode 114: Organic Cannabis Cultivation, Korean Natural Farming & Working With Mother Nature (feat. Quinn Caliendo) Anyone who has been listening to this show for some time now has heard me speak to my love for organic Cannabis & my passion for helping others learn how to cultivate organic Cannabis in order to foster a deeper connection both with the plant & the earth as a whole. I truly believe that if each of us makes even a one percent effort to do our part in farming our foods & Cannabis organically, we could revolutionize the world & begin to reverse the damage that has been done to our top soils stemming from conventional farming practices. Todays guest on the show is a man who when I first saw at a local music festival, I was blown away by his break dancing & fire spinning skills. This being said, imagine my surprise when I walked into an organic Cannabis cultivation conference, began chatting with a gentleman about his journey as an entrepreneur in the legal industry in Maine & realized it was the same person I had seen fire spinning & break dancing back a couple of years prior. As usually happens with synchronicities like that one, him & I continued to chat afterward & ended up attending a 5 day Korean natural farming workshop together & since then, we have both dove into Cannabis & organic farming in our own ways & continue to nerd out together regarding the latest news in organic farming, Cannabis genetics & much, much more! Show Notes:(3:58) What originally got Quinn into cannabis?(7:17) MSO’s in Maine.(18:14) Check out FreedomBuilderz.com! (42:48) Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle on Facebook! (45:39) Quinn’s favorite part about cultivating cannabis. (58:09) Where you can reach Quinn.(58:33) Quinn’s final piece of advice for the listeners!https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/totop
Episode 113: The Path To Finding Your Power Zone & Finding Lasting Fulfillment In Life (feat. Jason Skeesick) When I think about the concept of life, I like to view it through the lens of a game that, similar to other games, there is rules for. This being said, like with most games, once you learn the rules, you can learn how to “break” them, so to speak, to be able to create the experience within that game that allows you to have the most fulfillment & fun possible. Todays guest on the show is a man who is a master of the game of life & its many components, specifically within the realms of finance, business, exercise & sales. He has a diverse background in these realms ranging from his experience in the army, to his experience as a financial analyst for JP Morgan, to his experience as a business owner both at the CrossFit gym he created & sold, Chicago Elite Fitness & his newest venture, Spear & Clover. This current project encompasses his love for podcasting with the Spear & Clover podcast, which I was a recent guest on & had an absolute blast on, along with his love for finance & sales in the equity department of this project. He is extremely passionate about spending his time with passionate entrepreneurs & assisting them in impacting the world in a positive way & throughout this episode, we will be diving into his journey, what got him interested in exploring the fields he is passionate about, what advice he has for those of you listening who are looking to make a positive change in the world & much, much more.Show Notes:(2:46) Ryan and Jason become friends!(6:47) Working a job while operating a side hustle. (10:00) How coaches help you see what’s right in front of you. (14:42) Entrepreneurs. (17:37) Check out Freedombuilderz.com! (34:14) The Ego. (38:27)  Ryan gets humbled by entities. (43:13) Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle on Facebook! (55:14) Where you can find more about Jason!(56:29) Jason’s final piece of advice!Connect with Jason:IG and Twitter: @jasonskeesick  @spearandcloverFB and Linked in: Jason Skeesick and Spear And CloverThank you to our podcast sponsors!Freedom Builderz - https://www.freedombuilderz.com/Building profitable online programs FOR coaches using Kajabi so they can smoothly hit 10k months!https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/totop
Episode 112: How To Improve Your Movement For A Higher Quality Of Life (feat. Camron Angus) Within the vast realm of health, let alone the vast realm of fitness, there are SO many different modalities one can employ to ensure they are staying healthy, fit & mobile as they age. A common misnomer that I see society moving out of in the present day in a big way is the misnomer that the body “breaks down” as we age. In my experience, I have found that the famous saying “move it or lose it” is one of the best philosophies to embody if we wish to be active & mobile throughout the course of our lives & allow our lives to be ones which are thriving in nature, rather than ones in which we merely survive. This being said, with more information than ever currently available to us, what are some of the best ways to stay active, mobile & in that state of thriving? In my personal fitness & health journey, one of my best kept secrets is that of the company Stick Mobility, which focuses on the trifecta of strength, mobility & coordination all in one system & todays guest on the show is not only a stick mobility coach, a CHEK trained practitioner & a chiropractic assistant, but he is also someone who has gone through his fair share of challenges within these realms in order to come out the other side with invaluable information for each person listening on how easy it can be to supercharge your health, fitness & mobility in order to live the version of your life that is the greatest & grandest in nature. This week, on Episode 112 of The Highly Optimized Podcast, we talk with personal trainer, stick mobility coach, CHEK Practitioner, and Chiropractic Therapy Assistant Cameron Angus about:  (9:49) The Way of the Superior Man & not fitting into the corporate lifestyle.(20:05) Stick Mobility.(28:11) Learning new skills to fuel your passions.(37:52) Gym Mentality.(57:02) Knowing your “Why”.(1:07:22) Outro & One last question!Connect with Cameron on IG: @camangus68Thank you to our podcast sponsors!Freedom Builderz - https://www.freedombuilderz.com/Building profitable online programs FOR coaches using Kajabi so they can smoothly hit 10k months!https://www.highlyoptimized.me This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/highlyoptimized
Episode 111: Finding the Flow in Life (feat. Tyler Le Floch) When it comes to the idea of masculinity, much of the world is mistakenly confusing what true masculine energy is with the immature, boy centered version of this energy we commonly see running amok in todays world. This is, in a big part, due to us losing many of the wise elders & initiatory processes that have been used since the dawn of time to help boys evolve into men within society. This being said, there is now a big movement within the world of self development to fill in this missing gap & allow the true divinity of masculine nature to once again come forth. This version of masculinity is not afraid of the divine feminine, as the immature masculine is & instead recognizes that the balance between these two energies, which is often referred to as the concepts of yin & yang, is essential to a mature, balanced approach to being a true man. Todays guest on the show is a man who is spearheading this movement, both within his own development as a mature man through self development programs & practices & in the work he does with men, such as his work as lead coach for the Alpha Hippie program, which I went through & can speak to the incredible benefits of maturing as a man that the program is centered around. In addition, he is also a dear brother of mine who has shared in some absolutely incredible memories within my life & in this episode, we will be diving into his journey, what tips he has for men listening that are looking to embark on this path & much, much more.Show Notes:(4:13) Dealing with addictions.(12:23) Check out FreedomBuilderz.com! (14:22) Tyler talks about his inner journey.(18:19) The good vs. evil, in terms of the judge’s viewpoint.(26:07) Developing your inner compass. (32:04) Join the Highly Optimized Ceremony Circle!(35:47) Thirst traps! https://www.highlyoptimized.me(41:40) How Tyler got into rapping. (56:08) Looking at life with a fun POV. (1:04:46) Where you can find Tyler!(1:05:36) What change would Tyler recommend that people make in order to highly optimize their life?Tyler Le FlochPersonal trainer and coach for the past 10 years, recently stepping into men’s coaching and development (facilitator at TCS retreat, facilitator of Mike Salemi men of movement retreat, lead coach for pro man academy)Connect with Tyler https://www.instagram.com/tylerleflochThank you to our podcast sponsors:Freedom Builderz - https://www.freedombuilderz.com/Building profitable online programs FOR coaches using Kajabi so they can smoothly hit 10k months! This episode was produced by Mazel Tov Media in Quincy, Massachusetts.https://www.mazeltm.com/highlyoptimized
