About Our Guest
Bryan Falchuk is an author, speaker, and life coach. He was introduced to me through Michael O’Brien who appeared on an earlier episode of our show. As soon as Bryan and I met in person, we discovered many more common friends we shared right here in Boston, Massachusetts.
If you are listening to this and you are an up and coming influencer, an author who is seeking to be interviewed by on podcasts, there’s one important tip and trick I learned from Bryan. He created an interview prep document (PDF) that became very handy for hosts who don’t know much about him, yet. Hence, you should create something similar to this document, where you include your photos, suggested questions, bio, etc. Podcasters love to see that you’ve done your homework!

I need to interact with you in a way that exposes you to a new way of thinking about yourself, so that you make your own change to change your life, I’m not going to do that. A coach should call you out on that and work through changing your perspectives, so you can be honest with yourself about a better path.
The lack of desire to get uncomfortable gives you the easiest answer “no”. The easiest thing you can do is not to change, not to look into it, not to challenge yourself. But it doesn’t make it any better, and eventually you are not gonna have a choice.
40-45% of the book is very personal stuff, something I’ve doubted with, struggled with. My relationship with my mother, my relationships with my wife, with my sister, with my coworkers, I’m telling you: this is where I screwed up. It’s not about what they can do, or what I didn’t do, it’s about what I can do differently to enlist a different outcome, regardless of who I think is at fault or not.
We all go through stuff, everybody has a back story, no matter whether it’s better or worse than someone else’s, or I went through a tougher time than you, that doesn’t matter. We all go through what we go through and that leaves little footprints on us along the way, and it wires our brain and our emotional interactions in certain ways.
There’s no such thing as someone has everything. It’s also like beauty is in the eye of the beholders, what’s complete to you may not be complete to me, because we are incomplete, and we are looking for different things in different people, that’s why you need everyone.
Hey it’s Fei, I’m so glad you found me!
