Episode 175 – Dan Nevins – Yoga / audio


Dan Nevins (@DanNevins on twitter) returns to discuss yoga with host Craig Price. Past guest (episode 97) Dan sits down with Craig in Washington DC for what Craig thought would be an informative chat about yoga but became an emotional story of coping with depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and discovery.  Being a popular speaker for the Wounded Warrior Project, Dan was afraid to ask anyone for help when he started to get depressed because so many saw him as a role model of recovery and perseverance.  It can be hard to ask for help because just showing a crack of your humanity to others can make them think you’re really in trouble when in fact, you just need someone to listen. Thankfully Dan found yoga and it has transformed his life and has shown him new ways to heal, get over his own doubts and shame and help his fellow soldiers deal with their PTSD. Of course Craig can’t be all serious so they discuss downward dog, passing gas in class and more. He even commits to a yoga class with Dan! An unexpectedly touching, emotional and real conversation with a person who has normal struggles just like the rest of us despite his inspiring story and life. A can’t miss episode for sure.

SPECIAL EVENT: This August 20th, 2015 at 6pm EST, join Dan in Bryant Park in New York City as he attempts to break the record for the world’s largest yoga class. Go to to RSVP for this FREE class.

conflict management

Mark Hehl with Solutions4Business joins host Craig Price to discuss conflict management. Not many people like conflict in the workplace and even fewer like getting involved when the conflict may not involve you. Mark and Craig discuss how conflict can be good for organizations, but they also discuss how planning ahead can eliminate many of the potential conflicts that could pop up on a project. They discuss the reasons for conflict, including people who just like pushing buttons and causing chaos (Craig calls them “social terrorists”) as well as separate departments having separate goals and never communicating them to each other.  All of this talk will be showcased at the Southern New England Chapter of PMI Professional Development Day in Hartford CT this April 27th and 28th. If you’re in the Nutmeg state at the time, register at Hope to see you there!

Episode 140 – Brad Montgomery – Happiness / audio


Brad Montgomery (@BradMontgomery on twitter) chats about happiness with host Craig Price. Happiness can be the Holy Grail for many people, elusive, just out of reach or more commonly, something that happens intermittently for short periods of time. But what if you had control over your happiness? That’s what Brad proposes to a skeptical Craig. The two talk about the flaws in The Secret (or outright lies if you ask Craig) how you can take unhappy conditions and fine tune them so you can be happier, how to gradually get incrementally happier versus trying to drastically change overnight as well as discover that they are just two short balding guys talking about the same things from different perspectives. The more things seem different the more they are closer to the same. It seems super positive and negative people can get along! Everybody sing Kumbaya!
