Podcast 511: Dr Glenn Livingston, Ph.D: A $2m Debt Leads To A Life Of Healthy Eating
Today’s guest joining us on the top rated podcast Join Up Dots is a man who not only has been on an amazing professional journey over the last 25 years, but also a personal journey equally as inspirational too.
For many years our guest worked for the big food companies and was obese, struggling with binge eating and over eating.
And of course as you can imagine this was not good for his well being, so he knew that he had to do something about it, and so he did.
He conducted research, found the motivation to self-fund a study with over 40,000 participants and made an astonishing transition from obesity and food obsession into a more light hearted relationship with food.
But believe me this isn’t a guy with just one success story that we could tap into, as he has had such an eclectic background, and tackled many different businesses and become a success in them all that we could start anywhere to make a great career show.
As he says “At the risk of being immodest, I probably have more experience in both coaching and business development than the founders of virtually any other coach certification program on the market. Through the International Coach Certification Academy, I would like to pass on my knowledge, experience, teaching and mentoring to you.
Together with my wife and academy co-founder Dr Sharon Livingston, we have sold over $30,000,000 in consulting services to major brands like AT&T, American Express and L’Oreal. I have personally worked with over 1,000 coaching clients and directly supervised many coaches and psychotherapists to”
So where do we start on the joining up of his dots?
What stage of his career is the most inspirational?
With the amazing physical transformation that he went through, losing many many pounds of unneeded weight?
Or right at the beginning, when he was a child and couldn’t have believed where he was going to end up?
Who knows, but let’s start like we always do, by bringing onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Dr Glenn Livingston
During the show we discussed such weighty subjects with Dr Glenn Livingston such as:
Why so many people start a business with the concept of “if you build it they will come”….but that is so wrong on so many levels.
How he remembers losing $2,000,000 on a market research business, by failing to do enough research on what he needed to do to build a research business.
Why people need to slow down and be quiet to think about what the next step is. Ignore the outside world and simply listen to what’s in their heart.
How he always knew in his heart of hearts that he was put on this planet to do more than he was expected to do….a legacy has to be left somehow
Why he believes that he is a much better business man because of his failures than the successes that came easily to him.
