In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Michael Harris.

Michael is an author, coach, trainer, yoga teacher, entrepreneur and co-founder of Endless Stages.  His first entrepreneurial gig was selling blackberry pies door to door when he was six. Over the years, he has dabbled (more like dived) into photography, real estate, option trading, coaching and yoga.

One of his specialties is helping anyone move from fear of speaking in front of others to powerfully sharing their message in front of any size group or audience.  He has been able to take his personal challenges and help others find what inspires them.

For years he struggled with health issues, addictions and low self-esteem.  Then one day he had had enough and became willing to make a change. It wasn’t easy. He had to stop dreaming about what he wanted – and begin to take massive action by applying the Law of GOYA.  Many of his friends and colleagues urged him to use his metamorphosis to inspire others.

At one point, Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) reminded him that “your mess is your message.”  He went on to join my Michael’s launch of his #1 bestselling book, “Falling Down Getting UP.”

He has owned (or partnered) in several successful yoga studios – and coached other studio owners around the world on attracting and enrolling new students – while increasing revenue and profits (over $40 million in sales).  In addition, he has helped train and certify about 7,000 yoga teachers to get untwisted and speak in small and large groups.

Previously, he hosted his own successful podcast “Falling Up Secrets”, which featured guests such as the World Renowned Les Brown, the Legendary Composer & Producer Thomas Bähler, sought after Pain Specialist Dr. David Clark and many others.

As a result of coaching, podcasting, speaking and teaching yoga, he has realized how important (especially in today’s world) it is to encourage, nudge and prod others to dive deep within and open up to talk about their experiences to anyone that is willing to listen.

He has a saying,

“One more open heart in the world, is one more open heart in the world.”
