It is with tremendous ease, and with immense pleasure that I write this Feature Article of one of my all-time favourite human beings on the face of this planet!
Last week, I had the distinct honour and the incredible privilege of interviewing the person who currently holds the record for having the most consecutive guest appearances on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald International radio/podcast show! This is however, the first time I have been able to Feature him on Thrive Global; thanks to the graciousness and the generosity of Arianna!
Dov Baron is not only one of my most cherished friends, peers and colleagues – no – Dov Baron defies description for all that he truly is, all which he genuinely embodies on the never-ending laundry list of remarkable personality and characteristic traits! Dov IS fiercely loyal! Dov IS one of the most inquisitive and curious people I know. Like me, he embraces his childlike spirit and encourages others to do the same.
Dov and I have never had a discussion that did not involve either a saucy exchange of witty banter, or pee-your-pants humour, or other words swapped back and forth within the english language, which are likely not suitable for this particular platform. Dov is the real deal with respect to, ‘what you see is what you get.’
Dov is notoriously recognized, respected, and sought out for his brasstacks approach to unveiling the truth; dropping the facade and dispensing of the external mask once and for all.
Dov is one of those rare individuals and true gentlemen, whom I have ever had the luxury of knowing. He is vulnerable, controversial, feministic, while also being a man’s man. He is one of the most dynamic and diversified people I know within both the personal and professional realms. His consistent levels of forthcoming honesty, transparency, and integrity is beyond a breath of fresh air. Dov is characterized as the Leader of Leaders, and the Father To Men. His lead-by-example approach, and demonstrative personality – which depicts all that is right in this world, and all that is right with humanity is not only admirable but is incredibly infectious!
I very much love and appreciate that I always know where I stand with Dov. He tells it like it is. Truth-telling, truth-keeping while also keeping it real – will always take precedence above all other aspects of human interaction and human connection where Dov is concerned. Dov choosing to consistently remain integral with self is what enables him to be authentically present and genuinely compassionate. Like me, gratitude underscores every single aspect of Dov’s life. His daily appreciation for life, people, and opportunities is abundantly apparent to anyone who has had the privilege of knowing him.
Dov, I wish to once again express my wholehearted gratitude to you for being exactly as you are. Thank you for always showing up, and for showing up eagerly and enthusiastically! You are deeply loved and profoundly valued! For all the ways in which you continue to pay-it-forward and are of invaluable service to the collective…I THANK YOU!
On behalf of Dov and myself, we wish to mutually extend our appreciation to you…YOU the Thrive Global Reader…YOU the Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald loyal radio listener, and YOU the podcast Subscriber. We hope you derive great value from listening to our synergistic interview with one another (podcast link enclosed). We thank you in advance for any forthcoming contact you may wish to initiate with either or both Dov and myself, outside of this phenomenal forum! We love people and we love the opportunity to serve!
Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More!
Be your own Hero. Be your own Shero.
Be your own Leader. Be your own Best Friend!
Love & Gratitude ~ Lisa
