Listen & Subscribe on iTunes Are you being real about how you celebrate your birthday? It seems that everyone has a different relationship with their special day.

Wherever you fall on that spectrum, it tells a lot about you (or in this case 'TEL's, tune in to see what we mean)! In this Episode 207 of Are You...


206 Samuel Ian Rosen - Tap Into Your Purpose

Listen & Subscribe on iTunes 1 MILLION plastic bottles are purchased every minute and nearly 80% of them end up in the landfills and oceans, further contributing to the deterioration of the planet.

204 Sloane Trugman - From Hiding To Helping: Using Your Unique Skills For Good

We've all felt like a 'fish out of water' or experienced challenges in our lives that make us want to hide to protect ourselves, both physically and emotionally.

But as Sloane grew up, she began to realize that she could use her empathy and ability to see and recognize the diversity around her to help...

201 Michael Strasner - How To Master Leadership Through Authenticity

198 Elisa Rose - Authentic Discovery, Expression, & Healing

Creating art is a way for us to take who we are and express it in a way that makes it easier for others to understand. But with vulnerable expression comes the risk of judgment and rejection. Whether it comes from others and from ourselves, that fear of judgment can tempt us to hold back from letting others see us and our art. Case in point: talented singer-songwriter Elisa Rose. Even though Elisa’s music radiates with messages of healing and awakening that everyone can appreciate, she...


197 Chris Girbes-Pierce - Money & Happiness

Money has been in use for thousands of years. It's interwoven into the very fabric of our society.

196 Sebastian Terry - The Intersection of Connection & Kindness

When life isn't working out the way we want it to, we naturally look for reasons and explanations to make sense of our results.

194 Pauly Ting - Effective Truth Telling

We're taught at a young age that it's important to tell the truth, but the truth is, we all lie. We lie to protect others, to protect ourselves, for the rush, or simply to be polite.

As Pauly Ting, founder of Bold&Resolute, says: "It's f***ing scary." On Episode 194 of the Are You Being Real Podcast, Mark and Pauly...
