My guest today aligns with my mission for authenticity and Being Human, Jeff Brown.

Born in Toronto, Canada, Jeff Brown did all the things he was supposed to do to become successful in the eyes of the world. He was on the Dean's Honor List as an undergraduate. He won the Law and Medicine prize in law school. He apprenticed with top criminal lawyer Eddie Greenspan. It had been Brown's lifelong dream to practice criminal law and search for the truth in the courtroom.

But then, on the verge of opening a law practice, he heard a little voice inside telling him to stop, just stop. With great difficulty, he honored this voice and began a heartfelt quest for the truth that lived within him. Although he didn't realize it at the time, Brown was actually questing for his innate image, the essential being that he came into this lifetime to embody. He was searching for his authentic face.

As part of his journey, Brown surrendered to his confusion and explored many possible paths. He studied Bioenergetics and did session work with co-founder Alexander Lowen. He practiced as a body-centered psychotherapist. He completed an MA in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School in San Francisco and co-founded the Open Heart Gang, a benevolent gang with a heartfelt intention. He started his own business and became a successful entrepreneur.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why the inner work is the most important work that he's done 
  • Is spiritual bypassing a necessary part of the process? 
  • Why self-avoidance masquerading as "enlightenment" is causing people to commit suicide

The last time James and I talked on my podcast was four years ago!

James Altucher has started and ran more than 20 companies and is currently an investor in & advisor to over 30, but at one point, James lost everything. In a matter of months, his account drained from $15 million to $143. Depressed and on the floor, James realized that today's standard view of success comes with conditions and the only way to be truly successful and fulfilled is to “Choose Yourself.” Now, James Altucher is a bestselling author, successful entrepreneur, angel investor, chess master, and host of The James Altucher Show podcast.

In this interview, we also discuss: 

• How to get out of your own way and prevent the same failures from happening again 

• The psychological effects of our improved emotional, spiritual and physical health

• How comedy and writing have transferrable skills

We also discuss: 

• An experiment that he did with 50 Shades of Grey called “How to satisfy a billionaire”

• Our shared experience of minimalism/buying/purging and why you should never have a mortgage

• Why the flow state is necessary to be a good writer 

• The deprogramming that’s necessary as an entrepreneur 

• The benefits of having a traditional publisher vs. self-publishing 

Towards the end of this interview, we talk about the brand safety of working with a mainstream publisher - which is something that I’m shooting for right now! My new book is going live with my crowdfunding literary agency, Publishizer.  If you liked my first book, you will LOVE this next one. It’s called Myth, Meaning and Marketing: How the Emotion of Story Creates Your Reality and it’s available for pre-order. I’ll put the link in the show notes.
