At 29, Brian decided that a life in Public Accounting was not for him! He quit his job and went to California to look for a new business idea and to surf all the legendary breaks such as Rincon, Malibu, Dana Point and Windansea. He soon noticed that there were no sheepskin boots in California, so he and a friend brought six pairs from Australia to test and so, “UGG” was born and over the next seventeen years Brian built it into a national brand and solidified himself as a business expert.

 

The business grew too big for Brian to finance, so he sold it to Deckers Outdoor Corporation. The new team built upon the “casual comfort” theme and through style development, merchandising and great marketing, established UGG as an International fashion brand, with sales exceeding one billion dollars for each of the past five years. In 2000, he founded Prefast, a company that provided pre-cast concrete walls in a two-story configuration for California schools. He sold this business, and the company continues to build California schools to this day. In 2003, he then Patented a new type of pre-cast wall panel incorporating lightweight concrete and steel studs. A breakthrough technology, over 100 structures were built prior to the economic recession in 2008. The 3-year halt in construction set in play those events that would lead to the eventual demise of the company.

 

As Napoleon Hill says in his book “Outwitting The Devil”: “Experiences of adversity were among the most fortunate and profitable of all my experiences”….., Brian found that his lessons learned would be valuable to share.”

When Andy Hnilo woke up in a hospital bed on the night of March 20th, 2011, his desperation became his inspiration to create Alitura. Andy had been struck by a series of large vehicles while crossing a busy street. He had a collapsed lung, seven broken ribs and a severe compound fracture of his jaw, which was broken in five places.  As someone who has always made a living based upon his appearance (modeling) and execution of demanding physical tasks (professional baseball), the outcome of this incident had far-reaching implications. Andy recognized that he had the power to choose as we all do when faced with stressful events and was determined to bounce back even stronger.

Andy was inspired and told himself that what he put in will be what he got out and he knew he had to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary.  By approaching his problem from a nutritional perspective,  Andy rebuilt himself and was back on a runway in a mere 7 weeks. Andy attacked his injuries both from the inside and outside. The most critical tool for healing his exterior was a hand-crafted blend of unique, specialized ingredients from around the world that he formulated himself. Thus, the Alitura Clay Mask was born.

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
