Imagine one day you’re teaching Spanish to middle school students and then you’re in an octagon fighting for your life and getting punched in the face.

Sounds pretty insane, right?

That’s exactly the journey of the latest guest of the Academy, none other than Charlie “The Spaniard” Brenneman who was a former teacher turned UFC fighter who ranked as high as #7 and now a speaker, author, coach and writer who shares his story all over his platforms and turned into a book called "Driven: My Unlikely Journey from Classroom to Cage".

In this episode we discuss how to adopt a fighter’s mindset, how to have a magnificent obsession, having a massive outcome that makes sense to you (but not others), lessons from the octagon, how to deal with endless critics, trolls and haters, the process of writing a book and enjoying the process of every single moment of life.

We’d love to hear your big takeaway from this episode, tag Charlie and I on social media and let us know what you got this conversation.

...that's why having a system to work on every area of life is crucial and in this episode I show you how.

In this engaging and riveting episode, I welcome none other than Preston Smiles -- author, speaker, coach and content wizard whose message is to empower, inspire and ignite a multi-generational movement of radical growth through conscious, creative content, acts of love and living boldly.

Preston believes we’re here to leave the planet better than we found it, and is committed to motivating others to join him on that mission, and live their best life now. He recently released a new book with his wife, Alexi Panos, titled “Now Or Never” which is available everywhere where books are sold now!

 During this full length episode, we discuss Preston’s mission, where we’ve gone wrong (and how to fix it), using and engaging the power of “first thought”, why life is always on the way and not in the way, creating a power couple dynamic, leading from the heart and everything in between.

We’d love to hear your big takeaway from this episode, tag Preston and I on social media and let us know what you got this conversation.
