MIGHTY BY CHOICE
Today’s podcast is an interview with a young woman who is mighty by choice. Her name is Caitlin Pyle. She believes, as I do, that anyone can be mighty by choice.
Her story is about her fascinating journey from living by other people’s rules to claiming her power and learning to live by her own rules.
You can listen to her story two ways. One, you can hear it and say, “That’s great for her, but my situation is very different. I can never do what she did.”
Two, you can receive Caitlin’s message and say, “Wow! She went from feeling powerless to feeling strong by making a decision to do so. I can make the same kind of decision.” Which option will serve you best?
Caitlin changed her identity story from employee to entrepreneur. That change allowed her to become a millionaire by age 30.
Here are just a few of the powerful inspirational nuggets you’ll take away from my interview with Caitlin Pyle:
- How she decided to wrap herself in strength, might, and power
- The only two sources of all your actions – fear and love
- How you become a magnet when you become a leader
- The two most important choices of your life – to be outer directed or inner directed
- The true meaning of guilt
- The true meaning of self forgiveness
- Why no one has the real power to bully you
- How to successfully work at home
- And, yes, there is much, much, more…

Walden by Henry David Thoreau
Procrastination Priority by Dan Sullivan
CAITLIN’S FAVORITE QUOTE
“Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.” – Henry David Thoreau
This podcast is my tribute to Dan Sullivan who writes brilliantly about the joy of procrastination.
Dan is the founder of Strategic Coach, a company that helps elite entrepreneurs achieve exponential success.
He is an original thinker who helps you (among other things) to reframe procrastination from a negative to a positive experience. He has written an entire book on the subject called “Procrastination Priority.”
He also does a podcast with another brilliant marketer, Dean Jackson, called “The Joy of Procrastination.” Dean, by the way, is the man who invented the capture page.
In this episode, I focus on three things that help you to liberate yourself from the weight and bondage of procrastination:
Also, I offer you this powerful thought that Dan expresses that can literally transform and enrich your life. “Self forgiveness is when you give up wishing that you had a better past.”
MEET THE HOLLYWOOD INSIDER
Hollywood is more than a place. It’s a story. Actually, it’s many stories, as many as we can make up in our heads.
Simply put, Hollywood means something different to everyone. Your story depends on whether you live there, you like or loathe celebrity, are outgoing or shy, religious or secular. No two people see the same Hollywood.
Today’s guest, Harry Lowell, is a man who lives and breathes Hollywood. Not the Hollywood of glitz and glamor, but the Hollywood of creative expression, the Hollywood of storytelling.
Harry knew he wanted to tell the kind of stories that live on a screen when he was a kid. Luckily, for him and for us, he never lost his childlike curiosity, excitement, and passion for the world of storytelling.
You will find his story refreshing, inspiring, and revealing about what matters in life and business, about the things that make you feel alive and keep you true to yourself.
Here are some of the highlights of today’s episode:
- Powerful life lessons from Harry Lowell’s dad
- The importance of mentorship
- The ego’s role in your success or failure
- Why you must master your relationship to time
- The real power of teamwork
- How to successfully pitch anything to anyone
- The biggest obstacle to your success
- Powerful branding tips
- Harry’s biggest mistake
- Harry’s greatest achievement
- What it means to be the “eye of the storm”

FREEDOM! We all want it. People fight for it. They live and die for it. So, we must all know what it is.
The truth is that if you ask one hundred people to define freedom, you will get one hundred different answers. All of them are valid. All of them are right.
The guest on today’s podcast is John Krotec, a man who is passionate about freedom. He’s an entrepreneur, writer, and army veteran.
He gained his understanding of freedom by fighting tough battles in his own life and winning. His journey highlights the theme of this show, Change Your Story, Change Your Life.
When John abused alcohol, he had to change his story. When he suffered a brain injury in a car crash, he had to change his story. When his marriage was on the rocks, he had to change his story. He did it every time and grew into the inspiring person he is today.
You’ll gain a lot by listening to John’s story. You’ll learn what it really mens to be bigger than your circumstances. You’ll come away with a greater appreciation for a business model that marries contribution and profit.
John created a company based on that model called Greenzone Hero. It honors and supports veterans who fought for our freedom. Greenzone Hero also gives veterans a platform to share their stories.
You’ll tap into your innate sense of compassion for war veterans who have sacrificed their well being and their lives to create more freedom and abundance for all of us.
John may even ignite a new entrepreneurial flame in you that can enrich your business, your life, and the lives of others.
