Shannon Lee, daughter of global icon Bruce Lee, is responsible for managing her father's legacy. No pressure. She is innovating the lens we use to understand Bruce Lee and his philosophies.

  • If Shannon could ask her dad or tell her dad one more thing. What would that be?
  • The huge challenge Shannon faced at the very beginning of her role in managing her dad's brand.
  • Shannon's favorite Bruce Lee quote

Emily Nolan found herself lying on an operating table in the middle of a life or death Why Not Now? moment. She had modeled at 16 different sizes and lived a life in pursuit of being "pretty" until she realized that nothing would ever be enough. Emily now practices radical honesty and self-acceptance. We talk through how she got to a point where she feels healthy in her Earth Suit. We discuss the impact our culture around beauty has on society. Emily said, "Our culture wants us to never have an end game. To always buy, consume and to never have enough and to live in the future of an idea of what we could be - and that idea is always better than what we are now. But in truth, is it?"

Joel Stein is a journalist known for his comedic and controversial style. He says (and writes) what many of us are thinking but would never say out loud. We discuss the role humor plays in answering the Why Not Now? question. Joel has a sophomoric humor column in TIME that now appears in the magazine every week. He’s written for way too many media outlets to list and has been fired from quite a few. Joel shares his gold when it comes to writing tips. (Honestly! Some of the best I've ever heard.)
 
 
Show Notes:
  • Joel's Why Not Now? moment. Choosing between law school or journalism. The factors that came into play when deciding between the two very difference paths.
  • What happened when Joel interviewed Ellen Degeneres about the lesbian fish in the Finding Dory movie.
  • Joel reached out to an internet troll, who had been trolling him for a long time, and invited her to lunch. They met up! How did it go down?
  • The time George Clooney came to dinner at Joel's home and they ended up in the attic with a flashlight.
  • Joel shares the best writing tips I've ever come across.
  • We discuss writer's block. It's not a thing according to Joel. "It's like workout block." Writers block is actually something else.
  • What does personal branding have to do with a person's funeral? We discuss.
  • Joel's new book. Real talk about the challenges and how Joel works through road blocks.
  • Can a person learn how to writer with humor? Yes. Joel shares how.
  • How to find your writing voice. Incredible suggestion on how to do this.
  • What advice Joel would give to his younger self?
