As always, it is an immense honour and a true privilege to share with you each week here on #ThriveGlobal – the stellar spitfires and noble human beings, I consistently have the pleasure of interviewing on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald global radio/podcast show! The sheer talent, pearls of imparted wisdom, and the infectious energies emanated through the airwaves is such a vibrational high for me!
I am continuously grateful for each and every single guest I have received the gift to showcase on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald for the past four years! Last week was certainly no exception – in fact, last weeks guest, Les Brown Jr., – son of the iconic and legendary Les Brown was most definitely one of my all-time favourite interviews spanning my hundreds of interviews to date! The listenership feedback thus far certainly supports and attests to this as well, for which I am extremely grateful to learn – so thank you global listeners and thank you podcast subscribers for graciously letting me know your thoughts, and takeaways from this particular interview and featured guest!
Les Brown Jr., and I had engaged in many a phone conversation, text message, and email correspondence prior to ever hitting the airwaves. What I can tell you, which is not the least bit surprising for me personally, is the fact that how LBJ presented himself publicly on radio is exactly how he presented himself to me privately in our one on one conversations. The real deal! What you see is what you get with the magnificent, LBJ!
I loved and very much appreciated the synergistic vibe, and the fluidly ping ponged back and forth banter we delivered on with one another. The synchronistic cadence in which LBJ spoke, allowed for us to cram so much yumminess into what is always a jam-packed and fleeting time frame for the purpose of covering so much desired ground, while also focusing on a myriad of subject matters – particularly for the benefit of the global listeners!
There was much shared laughter and reciprocal humour prevalent throughout the duration of this fast-paced interview, which is not always the case in radio interviews – generically speaking of course. As a radio/podcast host, you know you have hit the guest jackpot, when the interview encompasses a mixed combination of entertainment value coupled with the components of vulnerability, and deep-seeded wisdom, and all of this bundled up with amazing on-line chemistry! LBJ showed up and delivered in spades. He was on point, succinct in his messaging, intuitively sound, and ever so present with me and the listening audience. What a gift! What a gem! What a true natural!
Les Brown Jr., speaks internationally to groups of all ages, inspiring his audiences to reach higher and to expect more of themselves in the serious pursuit of dreams that define a lifetime. His core original message is, “We must be more dedicated to our destinies than we are to our distractions.”
Recently named one of the Top 40 Speakers under the age of 40 in America, Les Brown Jr., knows how to deliver every time. He focuses on the head and the heart and his infectious enthusiasm and vivid powers of description sweep along all those who hear him. The LA Clippers and Success Teens International awarded Les, the Humanitarian Award (HNAA) at The Staples Centre, specifically for his inspirational speaking work with young adults.
Les Brown Jr., has been speaking professionally since the age of 10 and he has not slowed down for more than two decades. His personal goal is to impact and to inspire a new generation of high achievers while remaining focused forward on building the family business, which trains emerging leaders to use their unique voices as a force for greatness.
With the experience of presenting before corporate executives in sold-out arenas with as many as 20,000 participants attending. Les Brown Jr., leaves his audience with more than just the necessary tools to compete and to win in a global economy – he leaves them inspired and hungry to achieve more!
Not only did I receive the gracious gift of Les Brown Jr’s., time and profound wisdom on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald…I have additionally received the gift of synergistic partnership and collaboration! I am super excited and immensely grateful to announce that I will meet this remarkable human being in person when we co-facilitate a two day seminar in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in August of this upcoming summer! JUST WOW! We are currently in the preliminary organizational phase for what is guaranteed to be a lifetime memorable moment for me both personally and professionally.
