Achieving work-life balance has always been an endless battle among corporate executives. On average, a full-time employee in the United States works 1,801 hours per year, or 37.5 hours per week, which is more than other OECD countries. For example, Europeans work up to 19 percent fewer hours annually compared to those working in the US.

This has been the work culture since the end of the great depression, but today, with technological advancement, many companies have recognized a lesser need for an in the office workforce. …

Relationships are not difficult to sustain, provided there is open and honest communication between people. When each person understands how the other thinks and feels about specific topics, the relationship becomes more open and inclusive, making it simpler to sustain.

Communication is considered the key pillar of any relationship.

In the season four finale episode of Rant and Grow, Dr. Jim Van Allan, a professor of communication studies with Kaiser University, professional speaker, and author, talks about his love for communication, and shares his own journey.

There are people who strive to achieve what other may consider impossible. This might be with reference to their personal lives or their professional lives. Nevertheless, they want to achieve something that they have never done before. Furthermore, they thrive at the idea of achieving what others may have never been able to do.

It is daunting to think about doing something that seems to be impossible when no one else has done it yet. However, in the latest episode of Rant and Grow with guest Kimberly Wiefling, you’ll discover how to make achieving the impossible relatively easy.

A lot of people are curious about dreams and their origin. Most dreams are usually absurd, and open to various interpretation. While many scientists say that dreams occur in correspondence with the last thought that went through our minds when we fell asleep, many others think that it is a game of our subconscious mind.

The interpretation of dreams has become very vague and ambiguous. In a recent Rant & Grow podcast I explored the science of understanding and interpreting dreams with Tyrone Brown, a dream, and mindfulness coach with a background in yoga, meditation, energy healing, and Shamanism.

Experts have yet to discover the limits of the brain’s abilities. Some believe we may never fully grasp them all. But the data does support the existence of one of its most significant processes: brain-rewiring. It can help your brain relearn, by repairing old pathways or creating new ones.

On the recent Rant and Grow podcast, I had a seasoned climber and experienced business mentor who is also a certified brain rewiring coach- none other than Chelsea Murn. We talked about how you can use brain rewiring to overcome blocks and obstacles in your life and business.

We humans are always learning. Ever since our brains develop enough, every single experience teaches us something new. Today, in this complicated world where everything is changing all the time, learning from your own life experiences might become a little redundant.

To become a lifelong learner, you don’t have to be a genius. You simply must be open to learn and grow and be willing to be proactive about your growth.

A simple shift in just living your life, to treating it like a business venture whereas you are seeking to extract maximum value from the efforts, will make all…

A lot of people get confused with the concepts of living your passion versus your purpose. There are those who substitute their purpose for their passion and over time, this misconception messes with their lives and their careers.

We all want to live passionately and with purpose, but it is not something we pursue, it is something that finds us instead.

This is very well illustrated in the recent episode of the Rant and Grow podcast with Lauren Krasnodembski.

Most people get through their lives doing the usual: focusing on work, on work-life balance, having kids, taking care of them…

We read despairing worldwide headlines on an almost hourly basis. We’ve heard of livelihoods and lives being lost and being stuck at home for over a year. There is a general dread of the most horrifying virus that through mutations may never come to an end.

It is reasonable to assume that our physical, emotional, and mental health has taken a massive toll recently. Given this context, the idea of ‘positive thinking’ is hard to sustain.

On the recent Rant and Grow podcast, I discussed the importance of having a positive attitude even in times of severe crises with Ryan…

Getting real with yourself and the kind of person you are takes a lot of courage and determination.

It is not always easy to muster up the courage and the boldness to confront the reality about yourself.

“Getting real takes a lot of guts and the ability to be powerfully vulnerable.”

When people do realize who they are and accept themselves in that way, they give themselves time and energy to realize their own potential to change their own life and by extension, change the world.

In my recent Rant & Grow podcast with Wayne Sutton, who is a coaches’…

No pain no gain. We’ve all heard this saying and we’ve been sold on the idea that it is true.

Is it really true that you cannot achieve success without sacrifice?

This is something that most people go through in their lives without ever finding any answers on how to make success easier, and less painful.

Why? Because the narrative of self-sacrifice is pervasive in our society. The truth is that you can be successful without compromising your quality of life. A lot of people around the world struggle with this.

Most people think that they have to give up…
