On today’s show our guest is Tony Schwartz. Tony is considered one of the world’s thought leaders around sustainable high performance and building more human workplaces. He is the founder of The Energy Project, a consulting firm committed to creating work cultures that are more human, more energized and higher performing.
He began his career as a journalist and has been a reporter for the New York Times, a writer for Newsweek and a contributor to publications such as Esquire, Vanity Fair, and the Harvard Business Review.
At the height of his career as a journalist, Tony hit an unexpected wall. He started questioning.. Why did success suddenly feel so empty? How could he add richer meaning to his everyday life? And where do we go and what do we do to find the answers? All of my favorite questions.
For five years he explored these questions, compiled his learnings and wrote the book What Really Matters: Searching For Wisdom in America. I really enjoyed it. Definitely check it out. (Allegedly there is a sequel of sorts in the works, which I can’t wait to get my hands on.)
In today’s episode we cover a lot of ground, including:
- His journey of self-discovery and how he’s become truer to his purpose over time
- He explains how we have multiple selves and how we have the ability to choose which one we act from
- And for a first on the podcast we talk POLITICS! Tony explains how Donald Trump inadvertently helped him move closer to his purpose in life
You guys are going to love Tony. Hope you enjoy the show.

IN OTHER NEWS:
It’s been a little while since my last episode so I wanted to let you guys know what I’ve been working on.
Since I started the podcast, listeners have been asking for ways to apply the practices, mindsets and wisdom and all the stuff we talk about on the show into their life in a practical way.
And I think that’s one of the challenges about personal development is we can get the concepts intellectually but to apply them to our lives and create LASTING change is a whole separate challenge.
So I decided to take matters into my own hands and I launched a company! It’s called School Your Soul and I’m creating online programs, courses, workshops and retreats that are geared to help you deepen your relationship with yourself and others, re-program your mindset to experience more joy and
We’ll cover topics like mindfulness, uncovering your blocks, healing old wounds, discovering your purpose, and ultimately the goal is to help you show up every day as the highest expression of yourself, connect and give to others and lead a joyful and meaningful life.
