[REBROADCAST] Ep. 014 - Feelings Inside Not Expressed (*Explicit*)

2/24/2022
[REBROADCAST] This one hits in some pretty uncomfortable places. It's been a long time coming since I said I'd do some sort of mental health/stress-anxiety-depression type of episode but I was never too sure how to frame it or how to get myself out of the bashfulness of sharing my personal struggle. Admission of full honesty right now as I don't really know how to preface this one other than to warn you that a few curse words have made their way into it. Aside from that, I found it truly...

Ep. 170 - Be Outstanding (w. Chef Alain Lemaire)

2/15/2022
Welcome back Awesome Tribe! We've got an undeniable OG guest on the podcast this time around! I am pleased to roll out the virtual red carpet and set the stage for my good friend and accomplished fellow warrior, Executive Chef Alain Lemaire. You always hold a special place in your heart for those individuals who, even with their incredibly busy schedules and not evolving in the same field or industry as yours, still found the time to show you support and believe you and your crazy...

Ep. 169 - The Masculine Warrior (w. Malcolm)

2/8/2022
This is one of those recordings that I'm ready and willing to admit I didn't really know what I'd come out with on the other end. But when you see someone doing great work and giving their all for a cause that you also believe in, you reach out and say Hello. I came across Malcolm's content a few weeks ago and being an active supporter of Men's work over the past few years myself, I felt compelled to reach out and show some love. As a coach and co-founder of the MALE MTL community & Men's...

Ep. 165 - Roll The Dice (w. Kevin Jordan)

1/11/2022
I don't know who coined it but I'm pretty sure many of you have heard about the often stated notion that public speaking ranks incredibly high on most people lists of greatest fears. I'm not too versed on the statistics but if we're going to take this as a fact, then we can agree that there's a particular category of public speakers that most certainly hold their own as modern day Spartans in this arena. I've always admired stand up comics. Not just for the sheer audacity and courage it must...

Ep. 163 - Onward (Year-End Special)(w. guest host: Erika Darbouze)

12/17/2021
Welcome back Awesome Tribe! I'm actually incredibly excited to share today's episode with you all. It sounds foolish but the humility and focus that goes into each of these episodes sometimes pulls me away from the obvious - when you do good and send kindness into The Universe, people do notice and incredible things tend to happen. This 'A.T.A' adventure started from nothing - yet, here we are. Still here. Still connecting with incredible guests, having deeper and more meaningful...

Ep. 162 - Lead With Your Heart (w. Angelo Rubino)

12/10/2021
If you're a local quebecer, the name Rubino just might ring a bell seeing as it's one of the most recognizable brands in Quebec. With its founder, Vincenzo Rubino, diving into the footwear industry some 35 years ago, RUBINO SHOES has since become a landmark as the best option to get branded shoes at the best value. With a culture rooted in authenticity as well as inclusivity, and with Vincenzo's children having now taken the reins, the company continues to push forward in its mission to be...

Ep. 161 - Wealth Matters (w. Rocky Lalvani)

12/3/2021
I'm going to say this outright even though know it'll raise a few eyebrows: Money matters. Coming from a country where the differences between the 'Haves' and the 'Have Nots' were so obvious, I was very well acquainted with the importance of setting yourself up for a proper financial future. Which is why, for this particular episode, I wanted to find someone that I believe would provide the proper vantage point as well as appropriate insight to help me drive this point home. Having...

Ep. 160 - Show Up As Your Authentic Self (w. Petrona Joseph)

11/19/2021
Today's guest is something of a powerhouse. Indeed, Petrona Joseph has carried numerous titles and prestigious positions to her name such as being the celebrated voice behind the SlayedItMontreal Fashion & Lifestyle blog. She also served as VP of Marketing for Montreal Caribbean Fashion Week while also being named one of Montreal’s 100 Most Influential Women. She is also a published Author and fierce Mental Health Advocate, demystifying mental illness in the Black Community. Because of...

Ep. 159 - Be Unwavering (w. Eloïse Gagnon)

11/16/2021
I cannot tell a lie. Today's guest really intimidated me at first. Thing is, having been a sub-par student in a past life, I often find myself dealing with a bit of insecurity when I realize the level of accomplishment, both academic as well as professional, that many of my guests have under their belts. Call me foolish but it's still something I find myself struggling with at times. I've done a reasonably good job of keeping this subtle Impostor Syndrome at bay. But sometimes, you get to...

Ep. 158 - On Overwhelm

10/19/2021
Haven't made a episode in awhile. Felt appropriate to bring these observations to you as I had been dealing with my own fair share of mental exhaustion hence my obvious absence from the interwebs. Hope that these words find you well and that you can find them useful, however small.

Ep. 157 - RISE Through The Fear (w. Robert Wise)

9/21/2021
It's been a long time Tribe, and I hope you will forgive this necessary hiatus as I have had to handle some personal matters and take some needed time off the radar. Excited to be back in the lab, ready to bring you yet another powerful conversation with another Awesome guest. With a noticeably infectious energy and an explosive appetite to connect with his fellow human being, I could not help but just LOVE Robert Wise since our first conversation. Robert is one of those chaps that is SO...

[SPECIAL FEATURE] - Teach Reach Podcast w. host: Tanguy Exumé / Ep. 5 - Awaken The Awesome : Olivier Day

9/17/2021
Greetings, Awesome Tribe. No need to adjust your podcast player - this is a just a little nugget of a surprise for you all. As you may have heard, if you follow me on Social Media, I had to take a step back and pull the brakes on pretty much everything as I had been struggling with a lot. As much of a resilient person as I am, it was important to admit to myself that I may have been taking on too much...podcast included. Took some time off to recenter and it's during this period that my...

Ep. 156 - Take Action (w. Christopher Salador)

7/22/2021
I know I say often about all of my guests, but I cannot set aside how incredibly excited I am about today's conversation. This meetup was WAY overdue as my next guest and I had connected some years ago, even before the pandemic, and he has since become an incredible source of support, wisdom, kindness and inspiration. Christopher Salador is not just an expert Realtor with a proven track record spanning almost two decades. He also stands out as a gifted trainer, speaker, consultant and...

Ep. 155 - Truths To Be Told (w. LaToi Storr)

6/29/2021
It was always my goal with this podcast to bring you people and stories reminding you that you have more in common with those that you admire than you care to give yourself credit for. In that regard, I found that the best way to do that is to introduce you to a couple of individuals, off the beaten path, whose warm generosity and powerful insights can offer just the right amount of perspective and guidance to help you along the way. In conversation with my next guest, LaToi Storr, I...

[REBROADCAST] - Ep. 053 - Happiness. Hard Work. No Excuses. (w. Stéphane Bazin)

5/18/2021
*This episode originally aired on August 2nd, 2018* On this episode, I setup some folding chairs and sit down (well, virtually anyway...) with the always entertaining and always exciting Stéphane Bazin, of Bazin Photography. As a successful photographer, podcaster, instructor and seasoned entrepreneur, this guy does indeed have a legitimate sense of perspective which I wanted to tap into for this discussion. We were exchanging rather intensely about the realization that most people,...

Ep. 154 - Embrace The Adventure (w. Mel Vandersluis)

4/25/2021
Mel Vandersluis is one of those incredible people that crosses your path and does not fail to leave a positive impression. We had randomly connected on a previous occasion and, even though it wasn't my initial intention, our conversation made such an impact on me, I felt compelled to extend a humble invitation to have her on the program. Mel is a truly talented travel photographer, content creator and entrepreneur based in Montreal, Canada. With a passion for sharing the beauty of the...
