The Next Chapter with Charlie

While Charlie is in Africa (working on the WELLS OF LIFE charity project), let's revisit some of our most popular recent guests. Like Michaela Renee Johnson. Michaela Renee Johnson practices and preaches a life of excitement, joy and (most of all) happiness.  Which leads Charlie to happily remind us all in this episode that "yes, we are STILL allowed to pursue happiness...even in these troubled and turbulent times!" Michaels is a breath of fresh air in this episode. And a true "happiness expert". Having built a whole movement around this topic through her book "Be You, Be Happy". ...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   We are in for a real treat today. I have already spent nearly three hours of discussion regarding Your Artistic Identity with our very special guest, Dr. Stephanie Allen. My problem today is not regarding “what I want to talk about,” but what I have to leave out because Stephanie has so much wisdom to share. Stephanie Allen holds a Doctorate in Musical Arts from the University of Minnesota. She teaches violin to students of all ages in her school Violin Technique Coaching. But Stephanie’s expertise is not exclusively regrading violin or music in general. She...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   Just about one month ago we did a show with one of my very favorite people, Creative Business and Performance Coach, Lindsay Davis. For those interested, that was show #238 on the very important subject of Detachment. It was all about how to emotionally detach from stress-inducing situations. As we neared the end of the episode, we realized that a follow-up session might be very helpful and offer clarity on a subject very dear to all of us: how do we discover our purpose in life. Now… this is a tricky discussion because there seems (to me) to be two kinds of purposes: One...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Well, it’s my first day back from 3 weeks in Portugal. I am rested and ready to go. Today’s show is sort of a last-minute idea because we feared I would be hampered by jetlag, but that is not the case. I am so happy to say that my dear friend, Rand Sperry was available to have a discussion on a subject very dear to both of us—basically it’s all about how to optimize “old age” before you reach “Old, old age.” Haha In the 2020’s we have an entirely different concept of old age than we did 50 years ago. 50 years ago, 60 was considered old. Today that is not the...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Hey Paul. We are so fortunate today to have as a guest my “reluctant to do podcasts” wife. After more than 200 episodes she has come on the show with me only one time—and that was from Italy, probably 3 or 4 years ago. Today is special. We haven’t seen each other in more than 10 days and have probably talked on the phone only three times… because she and her friends have been sooo busy. Pam and I have different ideas of the ideal vacation. Although I do like some activity and sightseeing, I must have time to rest and do nothing. Pam’s idea of rest only comes with...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Hey Paul. Today, instead of sitting with you in studio, right now I am sitting on my sofa in my apartment in Lisbon, Portugal. I was out today roaming the town and finding myself surrounded by throngs of tourists. Man, I have a distaste for crowds. And I do have a bit of frustration with tourists that expect nationals to behave in ways that suit their personal desires. Life is different in a foreign country and, truthfully, that is precisely what makes a foreign country so attractive—it is “foreign.” This is a different kind of trip for me. I am spending more time in my...

Show Notes  My special guest today, Dr. Andrew Hahn has just released a new book, titled “The One Hour Miracle.” And I must tell you… as skeptical as I am about such seemingly… shall we say, “far-reaching” proclamations, Andy has pioneered a process called Life-Centered Therapy that just might get you there. You will soon discover that Andy is one of the smartest guests we’ve ever had on the show… maybe that’s why he’s a Harvard grad. Andy Hahn got my attention when he told me that “our life’s work is about the revelation of who we really are.” So, without any...

Show Notes  Today is a dramatic departure from the normal format of our podcast. That because today my, friend Cara Stewart, will host the show as she interviews me as a guest on my own podcast. Initially, I invited Cara to be a guest on the show but after she and I discussed possible topics she came up with the question, “Hey, Charlie. Has anyone ever interviewed you on your show? To which my response was, “Well, not really.” After just a few moments of thought, I said, “Let’s give it shot.” So here we are. Fortunately, Cara Steward in an excellent host: she is a former...

Podcast Opening 

 We live in an unprecedented time of total disclosure of the personal lives of our politicians—male and female. But today we will discuss with Anne Michaud the stories of the wives of famous political men involved in serial sex scandals and deeply held personal agendas.

The question frequently asked about these women Is “Why do they stay with such philanderers?” Common responses range from weakness to a misguided drive for some sort of personal advantage.

Anne Michaud very aptly clarifies the motivations, strategies, and tactics of these women in her truly enormously insightful book Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas.

In today’s thought-provoking and marvelously insightful chat Anne offers surprising conclusions on how certain women have dealt with the most difficult of husbands.

Anne is a renowned and highly credentialed journalist.

A veteran political journalist, Anne Michaud is an editor for Crain's New York. She previously reported for the Wall Street Journal and wrote a nationally syndicated op-ed column for Newsday. Anne has won more than 25 writing and reporting awards and was twice named “Columnist of the Year” by statewide New York journalism associations.

Anne covered Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, Anthony Weiner’s 2005 mayoral bid and Eliot Spitzer’s rise and fall as New York’s governor from 2006 to 2008. Her work has appeared in Ms., the Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, Newsweek, BusinessWeek.com, Crain's NY Business, Cincinnati Magazine and more.
