More about Brad Sugars

Brad Sugars came from humble beginnings but has built a life and a business that many would cite as the very definition of success. Sugars, a self-made multi-millionaire, is the founder of the global business coaching franchise ActionCOACH™, an international business speaker, author, and entrepreneur.

Sugars has written 17 business books, the "Instant Success" series, which were originally self-published. In 2006, when McGraw Hill bought the international publishing rights to the series, it was the largest multi-business book deal involving a single author.

His ActionCOACH™ team works with tens of thousands of business owners in more than 60 countries with his simple yet powerful business growth techniques every day. Professionally, nobody has created a bigger impact in Sugars' life than Jim Rohn. As a teen, he scrimped and saved his allowance in order to afford tickets to a Rohn seminar, and despite being the youngest person in the audience, what he learned there has informed his own business practices and philosophies on life.

Sugars has a dynamic stage presence and enjoys motivating and educating other business owners through his online content (videos, podcasts), books and real-world interactions such as classes, seminars, and speaking engagements. His straight-forward Aussie style has branded him as a leader that will tell you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear--and for more than two decades, millions of people worldwide have been listening.

Sugars is equally as passionate about his family as he is about business. A husband and father of five, Sugars and his wife are survivors of the Route 91 tragedy which affected the lives of thousands in Las Vegas during a country music festival in 2017. His young daughter, Riley Brown Sugars, is the youngest survivor of the attack and has been featured in multiple media stories.

Brad has a new book with co-author Monte Wyatt "Pulling Profits Out of a Hat."

This week on the show, Daniel Levin joins me as we talk about his book "The Mosaic", the feeling of connectedness, the need for Like Minded Communities to dissolve, the exquisiteness of the ordinary, and challenging our core beliefs.

Also, I talk about my Improv comedy over the last couple of weeks. I did my live show last Saturday and it was a huge achievement.

Daniel and I discuss:

  • The story about a street artist in The Mosaic and how people come to him and give him broken pieces of things that used to be beautiful
  • The beauty of life is not who we used to be
  • On our own, we can only be what we can be but together we can be so much more
  • Being one piece away from an entirely new reality
  • How he experienced the feeling of connectedness
  • On not knowing what tomorrow brings
  • What his experiment is all about
  • Reconnecting the disconnected
  • No matter how bad things are, you are one connection away from something entirely new
  • Surrendering to the force that comes through us
  • The compassion of listening is to allow them to feel for a moment the exquisiteness of what it feels to not carry your burden around for a moment
  • On thinking how extraordinary we think we have to be
  • Rediscovering the exquisiteness of the ordinary
  • Different viewpoints on being ordinary and extraordinary
  • Challenging our core beliefs
  • Seeing beneath our superficial differences, we will see that we all have a lot in common

More about Daniel Levin

Levin walked away from an opportunity to run a billion dollar business, to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace.

He studied in a seminary five years and left one day before becoming a Rabbi and lived as a Monk in a monastery for 10 years.

As Director of Business Development, he grew Hay House from $3,000,000 to $100,000,000 in revenue. He is rare blend of businessman and mystic who sees what others do not see.

He is the author of The Mosaic, a beautiful story that touches the heart and soothes the soul. It is a book that helps us see what we do not see and as such much of its magic exists in the space between the words.
