Welcome To The Authentic You Podcast! An entertaining, empowering, profound & educational guide to master the authentic you!

In this one-of-a-kind Podcast I'll show you HOW living as the "Authentic You" will reduce workplace burnout, transform your career, and help you live your best possible life.

In This Episode: We Talk Flamingos in Acid Lakes, The Greatest Problem Facing Humanity, and we provide an overview of Season 1.

MY STORY: As for me, your host, "Hi my name is Goran Yerkovich. As the son of working class immigrants, I've lived the underdog story, going from out-of-luck and single (with a mullet - see episode 2), totally broke, and sleeping on an air mattress, to finding true love, doubling salary not once but twice in 5 years, and becoming a 6-figure Consultant, AND how I walked away from it all to start doing what I loved. I'll include the exact steps I took to launch my career, and make my dreams a reality, and I'll include my real-life-filter-free embarrassing and comedy-filled-too-ridiculous-to-be-made-up stories about growing up.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND SUCCESS: I've also spent years researching and writing over 150 science-backed articles that help answer the question - "What are the secret ingredients that make for a successful life?" So we'll look at Mindset Coaching, the latest in Neuroscience, 21st Century Goal Setting Tactics, Deep Work / Flow, Mindfulness & Meditation, Wim Hof Breath-work, Growth Mindsets, Purpose-Aligned-Living, Daily Habits, and so much more!

INCREDIBLE TRUE STORIES: I'll also share the worlds biggest, best and most mysterious, amazing, forgotten stories, histories lost in the archives - with valuable lessons worth another look.

Thanks again for your time and for listening. Until next time take care of yourselves and each other.
