    Is America ready for a Comedian Commander In Chief?   Ben Gleib believes it is.   That's why he decided to put his comedy career on the backburner and throw his hat into the ring to become the next President of The United States (no joke). While the thought might seem laughable at first, many people (if not most) feel a lack of trust in our elected officials in Washington. As more and more people turn to comedians as their source of news, he asks "Why can't we do with same with our politicians?" And wherever you lean on the political spectrum, there's no denying that Ben's viewpoints are refreshing and his enthusiasm and passion for the future of America is inspiring.   To learn more about this presidential hopefull's journey and how you can get involved in the coming election (whether you choose to support Ben or any other candidate), check out Episode 235 of People Being Real!   Enjoy!!   Connect with Mark: Instagram | Facebook | Twitter Connect with Ben: Instagram | Facebook | BenGleib.com   Show Notes: -W

It's a fantastic movie that brings all the nostalgia back from the original and couples it with some pretty gut-punching realism.   And while it's pretty obvious that some of the central themes of the movie involve the interconnectedness of all life and how love is a primary motivator for our actions (love for family and people in the case of Simba, and love of power in the case of Scar), there's much more to uncover if you look a little deeper.   In this solo episode, Mark sits down and shares 15 lessons he took away from watching the new remake, how it can relate to all our lives.

But sometimes, it takes confronting a life-threatening giant (like cancer) to light a fire under our rear and make the necessary changes to keep on going.   Alex Echols had to do just that. After doctors detected cancer in his system, he shifted his mindset and adopted an attitude of gratitude for his relationships, his health, and his life. He was able to make it through chemotherapy and now chooses to make the most of his One Life.

    16/07/2019 Duration: 48min

    Listen & Subscribe on iTunes   FOMO is a curious term being used in pop culture that means "Fear Of Missing Out" and its reach has exponentially grown with the growing popularity of social media. There are many examples of events and happenings that have induced FOMO over the years, but perhaps none have had a greater viral reach and effect on pop culture as 2017's FYRE Festival.   And if there's anyone that can just how much FOMO the festival generated, it's Marc Weinstein.   Having once been in charge of logistics for the festival, Marc is now a venture advisory, investor, yoga instructor, and advocate for blockchain technology. But having worked four weeks (around the clock) for a festival that never happened and participating in a documentary that where he didn't know how he would be portrayed has taught him many lessons about FOMO, success, the effects of social media, and the need for authenticity in our interactions (digital or otherwise).   To hear his story of why he chose to continue with FYRE e

And for most of us, getting to where we want to get to require a great commitment to making relatively simple changes and habits.  But for Lani Cooper, experiencing accidental brain damage from a game of rugby has made her pursuit for wellness and entrepreneurship anything but easy.   After a grueling recovery period of re-learning how to be human (use language, basic human functions, recovering memories, etc), she has become a successful stand-up comedian and entrepreneur through her company MOBOT (the first foam rolling water bottles available on the market).  She's a great example of the power of a positive spirit, hard work, and the ability for humanity to overcome life-changing trauma.   If you're curious to hear how exactly she overcame this trauma, the philosophy behind MOBOT and her foam rolling water bottles, how she manages her recovery and her business at the same time, and what she likes to joke a
