Going back in time, for so many people, he would had looked liked he had the perfect career, in the perfect location, dealing with the perfect subject.
He was a former attorney,who once ran Heath-Newton LLP, the largest family law practice in the San Francisco Bay area, specialising on helping people move through the heartbreaking, but sometimes liberating stages of divorce.
As he says he has been through a thousand divorces but is still a romantic at heart, and with a never ending supply of former romantics wanting to go their separate ways, you would think that this was a job for life.
However, our guest had other ideas, and instead of getting bigger and bigger he began looking to close his firm and sell it.
But it was at this point when his world crumbed and the ground fell from under his feet.
He discovered his partner had been embezzling money and he lost everything.
And this is one of those key moments, a big dot moment as we call them, when he could have gone in many different directions but instead found what looks like his true love.
So his next step (…after a year of depression post-law firm crisis), he launched his podcast and magazine, Together Guide, where he helps people find the love and keep the love, through stories, podcasts, retreats and workshops.
Taking all his learnings through years of divorce, to well, nip it all in the bud before it ever gets anywhere near the big D word.
So could he have only have got to this point, by going through the years of legal work, or does he now wish that it was fast track all the way?
And why do people who start so in love, lose their way? Is it a lack on communication, or just forgetting what thrilled them in the beginning?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Erik Newton
During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Erik Newton such as:
How he took quite a time to come to peace after the actions of his former business partner, but now has left behind the bad energy for good.
Why it is so easier to see what everyone else should be doing in life, than what you should be doing yourself.
Why the words of Steve Jobs, dont quite do it for Eric, although he brilliantly puts forward another view (which took me by surprise)
Why he has struggled to define himself since his legal career, and has battled with the impostor syndrome….we hear a breakthrough live on the show!.
