The lesson: Listeners will know that Tony and Tobias feel that blending professional, personal, and spiritual passions is the key to aligning them to your purpose.

Notable Excerpt: “Business is at the lowest rung for me; it’s a tool, but anyone who knows me well will tell you that I am a terrible business person! I leave money on the table all the time! So for me, I think that’s actually not a terrible business person, I think it depends on your lexicon, it depends on your lens. So if that lens is to wake up every morning and to like the person you see in the mirror and be excited and motivated to go out and to be involved in the world, and that allows you to feel expansive, that allows you to bring your gifts to the world, it gives you a sense of confidence and a sense of purpose, that’s a great business decision even if it’s not necessarily the greatest financial decision.”
