Have you ever wondered how to find a balance between being an entrepreneurial beast, making tons of cash, while still making a difference in the world and keeping grounded spiritually? Is it possible to achieve a high level of material success and public notoriety, yet remain faithful to your spiritual values and principles? Not many people manage to reach for the stars while keeping their feet on the ground, but we managed to find a very special guest who seems to have figured out how to walk this tightrope of high performance, yet keep his heart and soul very much intact along the way.
In this episode, we sit down with 'the godfather of hip-hop' himself, Russell Simmons, and learn how he's used yoga and meditation to not only build an empire but also to teach thousands of people around the world about the value of the yogic lifestyle through is many books and philanthropic ventures.
You'll learn the history of Russell's spiritual journey, the most powerful practices he's discovered along the way, and what motivates him to keep pushing the boundaries of personal growth and enlightenment.
This one is dedicated to the pursuit of success. Inside and out.
