#3 - Redefining Life After Loss with Jason Rosenthal

Jason B. Rosenthal is an author, Foundation Board Chair, public speaker and lawyer. He is also the subject of an article written by his wife, critically acclaimed author Amy Krouse Rosenthal, called “You May Want to Marry My Husband” which went viral and was read by millions of readers worldwide. Amy died of ovarian cancer just 10 days after it appeared in the Modern Love column of the New York Times. 

Since then, Jason reevaluated his life’s work and now speaks publicly and writes about issues related to grief, loss, and resilience. Besides giving a Ted Talk that has garnered 1.8 million views, he wrote the children’s book “Dear Boy” with his daughter Paris. It debuted on the New York Times Bestseller list at #1. Jason’s recent project is a forthcoming memoir that will be published on March 17, 2020.

In this episode, we uncovered the emotional and mental challenges Jason faced over the last 4 years. We also dissected what it takes to write a children’s book, how to prepare for a Ted Talk, how a loss can lead you to a transformative path, how Jason practices mindfulness and meditation, and much, much, more.

#1 - Seeing Brave with Producer Dana Michelle Cook

#1 - Seeing Brave with Producer Dana Michelle Cook

Today, you’ll hear about one woman’s experience searching for her path and how it led to award-winning documentaries. Documentary filmmaker Dana Michelle Cook made a career shift when she realized reality TV wasn’t aligned with her authentic self and purpose. Her first documentary “Girls on the Run” won her an Emmy and her second documentary “The Empowerment Project” found worldwide acclaim as she showcased the careers of ordinary women across the U.S. Dana’s latest effort, “Seeing Brave” takes viewers into the lives of three women who have taken initiative to have an impact and make a change in the lives of others. Most important it reflects her connection to female empowerment and telling the stories of amazing women from around the world. In this episode, Dana and I also explore the narrative of women told on television, our own blind spots in the creative process, the nuances of the writing process, the challenges of sitting with your thoughts, and the morning and evening routines of a filmmaker.

how do you even know what you can do in your own life?”
