I met Lauren Herrera when I was on her podcast Love Is a Verb, and I just knew that she had to be on my podcast. Lauren is the founder of Eat Like a Boss, a process that helps women break away from their destructive habits with food. In this conversation, however, we’ll barely touch on food. Instead, we’ll focus on universal laws, including the law of attraction and many others. Lauren and I have both used these laws to manifest such incredible things in our lives, and we’ll show you how to do the same!

My guest in this episode is Luke Storey, who is not only a biohacking expert but also an experienced life stylist. Luke will take a deep dive into biohacking, a relatively new concept that involves using science, technology, and research to hack your body and brain. We’ll talk about his life and his various transitions, as well as concepts like the importance of sunlight, choosing the best drinking water, and what a fulfilling morning routine looks like.

  • [40:26] - One of Luke’s biggest sleep hacks is to get at least 20 minutes of natural daylight as early in the day as you can. He then raves about the experience of collecting your own spring water.

  • [57:20] - Dr. David R. Hawkins is one of Luke’s favorite people to listen to in the morning. He lists some of his other favorites as well.

Another year has flown by. In today’s episode, I just wanted to get a little personal and share some of the magical moments that I had over the last year. I learned a great deal and went on some amazing journeys. This episode is about leveling up, being open to clues sent by the universe, and living your stellar life to the fullest.

The Mission Log:

  • [00:38] How the last year passed in the blink of an eye. I want to do this episode to share my year with you. Then my first thought was that I didn't accomplish anything.
  • [01:02] It's so typical of people who have Type A personalities who like to achieve, conquer, and have big dreams. Sometimes it takes time to manifest all of those dreams.  
  • [01:21] I took a step back and asked my husband what happened. So much happened that everything became a blur. We need to celebrate our achievements even the little things.
  • [02:09] Taking a deeper look and appreciating how much you have advanced and seeing the gifts of what has happened to help you grow.
  • [02:46] Seeing what we don't want and how it helps us see what we want.
  • [03:10] Looking at my last year. 2016 was super stressful for me because I was planning my wedding. Even with a wedding planner it wasn't easy.
  • [03:40] We had a wedding in a remote location in the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. This is a beautiful remote place. It is one of the most bio-dense areas in Costa Rica. At the lodge there were monkeys, toucans, seabirds, and so much beauty.
  • [04:47] It was pouring down rain and I was stressed out of my mind, but it turned out to be a beautiful time with friends and family.
  • [05:19] 2017 was spent living my life in a new arrangement and focusing on what i really wanted to achieve.
  • [05:30] One of my biggest achievements was launching the Awaken Your Inner Goddess Challenge.
  • [05:38] The challenge was so awesome and every woman had so many breakthroughs, just by taking care of herself for 15 minutes a day.
  • [06:40] Women fell in love with themselves and their responses filled me with joy. This affirmed that my knowledge has enabled me to bring my mission to women and help them shine and see beyond their limitation.
  • [08:21] How I shrivel and shrink when I don't put myself beyond my comfort zone.
  • [08:27] 2018 is for expanding, growing, reaching, and touching the stars with a Stellar Life.
  • [09:20] I had amazing breakthroughs over the last year,and I am amazingly grateful for my clients and their trust in me.
  • [10:03] Awakening your own inner goddess that is sexy, juicy, and alive.
  • [10:23] Some days can shake your confidence but then signals come and everything falls into place.
  • [11:17] Try looking for the clues, listening to the messages of the universe, and be open to receive those messages.
  • [12:03] Looking beyond the 1% and getting a glimpse into how big and vast we are.
  • [12:46] I talk about seeing Donny Epstein in Denver at Transformation Gate.
  • [14:13] We learned the five steps to mastering at Neil Strauss's Secret Society for Men.
  • [15:03] We learned about marketing and Internet marketing. I find it a bit dry and it is not my zone of genius.
  • [16:30] The importance of sharing your message with the world and not holding it back.
  • [17:26] I had a visit with my family for a month. Then we visited the Dead Sea. The mineral mud soaks out all of the toxins. It makes you feel reborn.
  • [19:59] This year was a year of recovery. I had to wear a cast, I'm training, and even doing acupuncture.
  • [21:22] The injury affected my fitness routine. I also used to do Krav Maga. This is a super fast and effective martial art. It's about defending yourself and running away. I even had to stop my pole dancing classes which helped me connect with my femininity.
  • [23:53] The importance of giving yourself grace in whatever you are experiencing right now. Stop pushing too hard and give your body time to rest.

In this conversation, he’ll take a deep dive into the ins and outs of being successful on YouTube. His expert tips will help whether you’re a beginner or have already started growing your presence on the platform.

  • [02:26] - Orion starts the show off with a fun fact: both she and Sean like The Flash.
  • [03:28] - Sean talks a bit about himself and his life, explaining how he met his wife and some health challenges she went through. He then discusses how he got into video around a decade ago.
  • [08:02] - Orion’s tough times have been her greatest gift, she explains. Sean agrees and ties this into his experiences.
  • [11:08] - We hear how Sean has changed in the past decade or so. He explains the ways in which he has become a better human being, particularly through gratitude and compassion.

  • [23:23] - Let’s talk YouTube! Orion talks about her experiences in trying to get started on YouTube.
  • [24:10] - The best time to start on YouTube was in 2005, when the site started. But that’s irrelevant now, Sean points out, and the second-best time to get started is today. He offers some advice on how to do this.
  • [27:08] - Sean talks about what not to do, which is looking at someone else’s channel on YouTube, liking it, and deciding to do what they’re doing because you like it.
  • [30:15] - “Your vibe attracts your tribe,” Sean memorably says as he explains why it’s so important to be yourself and be unique on YouTube.
  • [31:22] - How important is a YouTube channel’s name? How do you plan and strategize when you’re at the very beginning of planning and creating your channel?
  • [34:52] - Sean recommends having what he calls a “napkin content strategy.” He explains what this is, and how simple and straightforward it can be.
  • [36:53] - The two things you should define for your YouTube channel are who your audience is and what kind of value you’re going to deliver.
  • [40:58] - Sean talks about what to do once you’ve identified your audience and value proposition: put out consistent, strategic, valuable content.
  • [41:26] - Sean’s team is still relatively small. He also talks about the growth process of his YouTube channel, which started in 2010 but took off in late 2015.
  • [43:51] - What are some of the most important tips regarding ranking for beginners? In his answer, Sean goes into depth on how to title your video.
  • [45:26] - Another mistake that a lot of people make is shooting their video first, and then trying to optimize it later.
  • [50:22] - Sean offers another tip regarding being specific. For example, you’ll probably never rank for “low carb,” but have a great shot for “low carb meal prep for weight loss.”
  • [51:41] - One of the big mistakes that Sean sees people making is thinking that views or subscribers are the most important metrics. Instead, he explains, minutes matter most.
  • [55:52] - The point, Sean explains, is that if you want to grow your channel authority, you need to put out consistent content and then hustle to get people to watch your videos.
  • [56:51] - Where can listeners find Sean?

  • [10:56] - What kinds of conditions can stem cells treat?
  • [13:10] - Harry’s area of specialty is treating musculoskeletal pain rather than using stem cells in the brain, he explains, but there are quite a few other areas (including the brain) that can be treated with stem cells.

  • [19:48] - We learn about the “P-shot” (or, as Orion calls it, the “privates shot”), which Harry explains is very popular in South America.

  • [25:44] - Harry talks about the types of stem cells that he uses in his practice.

  • [33:18] - How do the facilities in the US compare to those in other countries?

Do you want to be healthy, happy and optimize your health? Most people do, but we all have to watch out for stress. Stress hurts every aspect of our lives, especially our health. I know that staying calm and relaxed helps me have a fun and enjoyable life. That is why I have Dr. Craig Koniver on today’s podcast. Dr. Koniver is an expert in natural and organic medicine, and he shares how to de-stress, beat adrenal fatigue, and optimize your life for total well-being.
