Daniel Eisenman graduated Pre-Med from Emory University with a BS – an ironic acronym, he’s come to learn – in Biology. He even took the MCAT and was well on his way to medical school. But before continuing down the path of "NORMAL," as pretty much everyone in his life advised him to do, he decided to take a year off.
That year off has now turned into a decade of breaking normal, embarking on adventures throughout all 50 states and 20+ countries.
Through his journey and experiences, he found that so many people seem to be trapped in self-imposed prisons, keeping a lid on their genius, joy, and growth – and that’s when the idea for Breaking Normal was born, as a way for people to free themselves from this self-imposed prison.
Daniel now travels the world as a keynote speaker and facilitator of Breaking Normal Experiences, which are radical retreats and workshops – or, as he likes to call them, playshops – based on the principles of raw honesty and emotional freedom.
Topics Discussed with Daniel Eisenman:

Andy Hnilo is the guy who makes me not look 48 because Andy is the guy who founded Alitura Naturals, creators of the best skincare products I’ve ever used.
But the origins of Alitura begin with tragedy, when Andy was struck by multiple vehicles and send to the emergency room with a collapsed lung, seven broken ribs, and a severe compound fracture of my jaw, which was broken in five places. As a model, actor, and Division 1 baseball player, the outcome of this incident had far-reaching implications for his livelihood and future.
But Andy didn’t wallow. He recognized that he had the power to choose his future, and his desperation became the inspiration for Alitura Naturals. He tackled the problem from a natural and nutritional perspective, healing his injuries from the inside and the outside, and got himself back on the runway in just seven weeks.
And he’s gone on to share what he’s learned about healing skin and the importance of caring for our skin – because it is our largest organ, and we should be carefully feeding and nourishing it just like it’s a second mouth.
Topics Discussed with Andy Hnilo:

Why the food pyramid is backwards
The 3 most toxic items present in everyone’s home
The one supplement Andy would take for the rest of his life, if he could only take one
