The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes #318  My conversation today is with my dear friend and one-time personal coach, Dena Crowder. Dena makes the list of one of my “all-time favorite” people. Brilliant, wise, compelling, and… so much fun!  Today we talk about the essentials of Dena’s upcoming book about Personal Identity. Dena writes. “Our identity is a story we tell ourselves about who we are and our place in the world.” Dena and I agree that… Identity is a choice and an expression of your soul’s desire, your passion, your experiences, and your DNA.    With that, it’s with...

Show Notes   In today’s show, we walk along a journey of success and travail, for the two are inextricably tied together. Joseph Drolshagen shares a convincing argument of the value of difficulty and how to use that difficulty for shaping the life you really want. The two questions Joseph asks every client are: (1) Where are you now” And, (2) Where do you want to be? He believes the answer to the second question, “Who do you want to be?” always comes down to a matter of personal vision.  We address those questions and many more on this entertaining and fabulously...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Our guest today, Lata Hamilton, is an inspiring Change Leadership and Confidence Expert, and the creator of “the Leading Successful Change Program” for Businesses, largely in Australia, although she has several international clients as well. In conversation with Lata, I came to realize that changes in business can only occur when individual people in the company change first. Change, therefore, is as much personal as it is corporate.   As a millennial, Lata embraces corporate as well as personal change from a grand perspective. Today’s show is a potpourri of...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Living in the Orange County Bubble, many of us are unfamiliar with the personal and economic struggles that many (if not most) Americans face on a daily basis.  In my personal bubble I read that the market is great, but gas prices are up, and with those words I seem to feel that I have a grasp on our everyday economic state of affairs. Huh? It seems I have had my feet planted in mid-air. Did you know that very few Americans even have a meaningful investment in stocks. 93% of all stocks are owned by 10% of the population. And 80% of stocks are owned by old people. So,...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  At the age of 74, I am what’s called an early Baby Boomer. Maybe because of that, I am fascinated by the thoughts and motivations of younger generations like the Millennials and Gen Zs.  Although in our generation gaps, we have many common habits and values. Still, there are also significant differences, especially when it comes to “how to live your life.” My guest today, Tom Yankle, is an older millennial (at 40) who has a deep experience-based understanding of how people in the ages of 25-45 think about life.  Let’s see what he has to say…

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   It was probably couple of years ago that my good friend Terry Hershey brought up an idea that continues to leave me in a state of Wonder. He talked about Loitering in the Moment.   In fact, just a few weeks ago I wrote a blog on the subject and when I was chatting with Terry about doing a new podcast he suggested that be our topic. So here we are, Loitering in the Moment, that is resting in the present moment of a friend-to-friend recorded chat.  I am happy that you choose to join us today.

You know, Paul, two qualities attract me to my dearest friends: I like intelligent people and I like interesting people....

Show Notes 

Today we continue with Part 2 of our conversation with Caitlin Cogan Doemner. 

Last week Caitlin and I become so engrossed discussing her upcoming book The Ecstatic Way, that we had to close the show without chatting about the subject I really wanted to talk about: The Dance of Masculine and Feminine Energies

In today’s show we discuss important lessons about one aspect of our deepest existential nature: that is, inside of each of us exists a binary truth that we all possess masculine and feminine energies.

It’s not unlike the ancient Chinese philosophy of the yin and the yang, which is closely related to masculine and feminine energies. I found this definition which I think will be helpful: 

Yin and yang is a concept originated in ancient Chinese philosophy that describes how obviously opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world.

In today’s conversation Caitlin and I talk about the idea of “energies” that drive our actions, our beliefs, and the ways by which we understand our own personal world.
