Have you ever felt like life just happened to you without your consent? Kyree Oliver found himself thinking this exact thought about two years ago. He was in his dorm room at college, thinking about the physical, mental, and emotional abuse he underwent in the previous five months of his life. He felt as though he had lost all control over his life and that he was simply life’s punching bag.

Kyree needed a hero to save him but the people closest to him at the time, his teammates, were the people putting him through the abuse. He realized that if anybody was going to save him it HAD to be himself. He realized that he needed to build himself up so that one day he could look in the mirror and honestly say, “I did it… I pulled it together and saved myself” he let life happen to him up to that point, but from then on he became the author of his own life’s story. He became the Hero in the Mirror.

Danny Flood is co-founder of OpenWorld,the world’s #1 resource for active lifestyle creators. An entrepreneur since age 9, he went from broke ramen-eating college graduate to growing a profitable online business and pursuing lifestyle design with reckless abandon.

Through his many adventures around the world, he has been robbed, fallen from bridges and motorbikes, hugged exotic animals, and nearly died several times in pursuit of his dreams.

While he could be anywhere, he feels most at home in San Diego, Tokyo, Florianopolis, Buenos Aires, and Penang.

Danny’s Favorite Quote:

“There are many that find a good alibi far more attractive than an achievement, because an achievement does not settle anything permanantly. We still have to prove our worth anew each day, we have to prove we are as good today as we were yesterday, but when we have a valid alibi for not achieving anything, we are fixed so to speak for life.” — Eric Hoffer

He was addicted to drugs. He lost his faith. Finding his faith helped to get him clean but for him it was Hasidim.

He stood out at performances, his dress didn’t match his music. But he sings happy songs of triumph, with a twist almost like Sublime. His name is Matthew Miller but you may know him by his stage name, Matisyahu – popular reggae performer.

He is still close to his faith but doesn’t practice it in the same way, he’s dropped the garb, it was a way to help him find stability again; he’s found himself again and he’s comfortable to be himself.

When Matisyahu first started touring to packed clubs more than eleven years ago, it was prior to the release of Live at Stubbs, the now Gold record, and prior to that record’s single “King without a Crown” reaching #1 on the alternative rock radio charts.  His performances were a raw expression of his spirituality at that time and were supported by musicians who played a foundation of roots reggae augmented by the energy of a rock trio. Fans latched on quickly for a variety of reasons, but in August of 2005, just months after the release of Live at Stubbs, Matisyahu found himself on stage at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival with the de facto leader of improvisational rock-n-roll; Phish’s front man Trey Anastasio.

Many early fans of Matisyahu remember that moment clearly not because of the songs he played in front of the 80,000 person crowd, but because of his seemingly unfettered confidence (or perhaps naiveté) in helping lead Trey and his band through an improvisational display of beat boxing and lyrical gymnastics during the two songs performed.  It may have been unrefined, but Matisyahu’s passion for full band improvisation was laid bare.

You may not know his whole story and how his music is created, but in this episode we dive into all of it.

Matisyahu’s Favorite Quote:

“Listen oh Israel the Lord is our God, the Lord is one.”

Matisyahu’s Favorite Books:
The Politics of Experience

Grant Wise is a Serial Entrepreneur and Founder of Modern Moguls Marketing. A media Training & Marketing Management Company. Grant is known to be a maverick leader and an innovative marketing strategist who is unafraid to lead companies in new directions.

Grant’s story is one of education, truth, and perseverance; education through experience, imperfect action, and failure, living and growing with serious intention.

Grant has been described as irreverent, artful, & dramatic with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. He constantly strives for results in his clients’ businesses.

Entering the business world at the age of 19, Grant would begin his journey of massive success followed by massive failure. Having grown his first business to a million dollars in less than 48 months Grant began to grow too fast and attempted to do far too much. After experiencing the highs of business he would go on to experience life at the bottom. Through bankruptcy, a tarnished name, and an entire lifetime ahead of him, Grant dusted himself off and went back into business as a consultant – a teacher. With $25 in his pocket he pursued the only thing he knew how, business. He would go on to teach Real Estate agents how to grow their business through Social Media. Within a matter of months Grant had re-built his life and business to well over 6 Figures and is currently on track to turn his vision into a multi-million dollar company.

Her own Mother traded her for money when she was only 15 and forced her to marry a man 3 times her age when she was 16.

After escaping that terrible ordeal she became homeless for 2 years and eventually found the comfort of her Father’s family when she found out where they live.

At 18 she moved to Australia and started her own business 2 years later. Today, she runs a Women’s Fashion Label called Ohmagosh and now being sold in over 15 countries across the globe.

Her passion and purpose stretch beyond overcoming adversity and Entrepreneurship. As a Philanthropist she is one of the Ambassadors for The Freedom Hub, a non for profit organization that helps rebuild the lives of survivors of Human Trafficking and Sex Slavery in Australia.

She speaks for those who needed a voice. She is a spiritual and passionate human being who chose to live LIFE with so much gratitude, positive intentions and a purpose to change people’s lives through SERVICE, SURRENDERING her self to total selflessness and IMPACTING millions of lives.
