The Ultimate Hack Is Mastery

By June 16, 2016No Comments

“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.”

Bruce Lee

We’re back with another long-awaited installment of Ask Me Anything — a twist on my normal format where we answer questions submitted by you, the listener. However, today is a twist on the twist. Instead of listener submitted questions we focused on one core inquiry — how to reach escape velocity on your life to step into your most actualized self.

At the outset, Julie and I spend some time recapping Plantpower Italia— our first retreat in Italy — as well as our experience spending time in Ireland with David & Stephen Flynn of The Happy Pear.

Then the discussion turns to address the process required to live fully expressed. For me, this  journey boils down to one precept:

Mastery is the ultimate growth hack.

Enjoy the show!

Peace + Plants,


P.S. – Julie and I are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting our second retreat Plantpower Tuscany October 1-8, 2016. As of the date of this post, there are 18 spots still available but they are likely to go quickly. So if you want to attend and experience a magical week in Italy exploring your inner landscape, please get in touch with us as soon.  For everything you need to know about the program, itinerary, pricing and accommodations please visit
