Lisa Sugar: The Making of POPSUGAR (and a very good life)

A child of the 80s, Lisa Sugar grew up obsessed with pop-culture. Little did she know, her childhood fascination would become her career.

The Power of Personas: Unlock Your Inner Boldness

What if we could tap into the hidden superhero, savant or performer that lays buried deep inside us to do things we could normally never do? Not as a way to hide or put on a mask, but as a way to mine a secret wellspring of latent boldness and often creativity and energy that […]

When Ethos Meets Ability, Magic Ensues.

When you’re looking to build something real, something that matters, from a family or community, to a business or any other mission-driven endeavor, skills matter. So do people. Thing is, there’s also something bigger that’s important. It’s about the sweet spot between cultivating a powerful, well-defined and articulated ethos or culture, then matching that ethos […]


Mark Manson: On Pain, Possibility and Profanity

The first time I stumbled upon Mark Manson’s writing, I didn’t know what to do. It was a complete pattern interrupt. The issues were raw and real, the ideas were rich and his lens was so contrarian and refreshing it made me think. Really think. But, then, there was the language. This particular essay was […]

Work as an Act of Devotion and Expression (and, gulp, love).

How does someone spend over five decades of their life fundamentally doing the same thing and still be so madly devoted and passionate and in love with what their doing that they show up and rock it out? I’m talking about Bruce Springsteen. The man. The myth. The legend. What drives that astonishing experience? What leads […]

Sir Ken Robinson: On the Power of Creativity and Will [Best Of]

In February 2006, Sir Ken Robinson stepped onto the TED stage and delivered a scathing indictment of the modern educational system, entitled “How Schools Kill Creativity.” That talk exploded into the public’s consciousness and has since become the most watched TED Talk in history, with more than 32 million views and more than 250 million […]


There is no perfect moment beyond the one you create.

We are constantly surrounded by imperfect circumstances that we perceive as barriers to our ability to act at the highest level. So, what do we do? We wait for the stars to align. For a sign from God that “now is the time.” Never realizing, with rare exception, that sign is our own willingness to act. […]


Elizabeth Gilbert: Creating Your Life In Real Time [Best Of]

As we move into these final weeks of August, we’ll be airing two extraodinary “Best Of” episodes, featuring powerful conversations from the last year. First up, Elizabeth Gilbert. Gilbert exploded into the public’s consciousness in 2006 with the release of her mega-bestselling memoir, Eat Pray Love. Since then, she’s published a series of books, given […]


The Tyranny of Always

*** Camp GLP Final Call: Come join us next week! *** Why do we hammer ourselves with life-stifling, defeatist absolutes attached to negative expectations all the time? I always get rejected… I always get knocked down… I always lose… I always… I call this the “tyranny of always,” and it is a form of false self-talk that is immensely destructive, […]

Why the Best of the Best Always Have Teachers

What does it ACTUALLY take to be great? Over the last decades, we’ve learned that practice, alone, isn’t enough. You need to make your practice “deliberate,” with a fierce focus on assessing and improving. In this sense, becoming mesmerizingly good might have more to do with being purposeful than obsessed. Thing is, this type of […]

Our guest today believes everyone can harness both masculine and feminine energy to achieve greater success in business and, ultimately, life. In this episode, Jess Lively unpacks how masculine and feminine, intuition and ego play together effectively. She explains why Oprah is the quintessential […]
