Ep. 197: The Gift of a Tumor

"Greatness is a mindset and it is within every single one of you. So seize the fucking day and make it great" Liz Corah

Liz Corah was running an event centered around brain health/Alzheimer's research.

At this event, Liz blacked out/had a seizure and found out she had a brain tumor. Here are some of her thoughts that you'll hear on the Nice Guys today:

  • There was never a fear there, the mindset was to hit the ground running.
  • This tumor has allowed me to become a face for "Move for Minds."
  • Your body whispers to you, "I am tired." And we ignore it.
  • There HAS to be a work life balance. The balance helps to uplift the business side of the balance.
  • It is very easy to get to a place where you want to give up.
  • You are never given anything that you cannot handle.
  • If I can help others see that the little shit in their life does not matter by sharing my story, then that is going to be an inspiration.
  • Say to yourself, "This too shall pass."
  • "There is always a chapter in your life that will enhance a coming chapter in your life.

Ep. 135 Dark Justice is a dark comedy, but man is it funny. We talk to star Che Holloway today.

This guy is FUNNY! Che Holloway

This guy is FUNNY! Che Holloway

In Dark Justice, Che Holloway plays Amir Johnson, the first black cop in a small town. We talk entertainment, racism, selling yourself and so much more today on The Nice Guys.

Don't be afraid of taking risks, things will always remain a "what if", if you don't try. Life is too short to play it safe, I'm learning this personally in my own journey throughout life.

Definitely visit DARK JUSTICE, we have lots of cool information and announcements up there, our web site is were also available on Youtube, Funny or Die, Stream Now TV (a streaming service hosting Indi films and shows), Vimeo and Daily Motion!

Two films up on streamnowtv for your consideration, PRESSURE, written and directed by Reginald Altidor, tells the story of an ex con who comes back home and is forced to make a heavy decision to support his family. Another film, MODIEVAL written and directed by Bryan Ribiero, is a kids/family/fantasy short about a wizard and a knight on a quest for treasure. This film has a fun spin because of its RPG sequences similar to Scott Pilgrim, directed by Edgar Wright.

As for upcoming projects, there's one I'm really excited about, its called Elysian Field, its a cross between being a period piece/fantasy/action and drama, Elysian Field, written by Carlos Alvarez ( 8 is infinity) and Directed by Jon Leyton (GrandMasterElephant) is in post production and a teaser of this film can be found in both my personal reels ( and I will keep people updated about this project through my social media, when you think of Elysian Field, think of a cross of Othello and Django Unchained...yeah..

Ep. 105: Mindhacking master Sir John Hargrave went 21 days without food just to prove he could do it. Hear the story on the show today

 I interviewed Sir John Hargrave in the very last hours of his 21 day fast. Hear all about it and how you can hack your mind yourself on The Nice Guys today.


Here's what we learned on the podcast today:

Identify and change the thought loops that may be holding you back in your business and life.

Don't let others plant bad seeds in your mind.

Positive thought loops can help make your mind stronger.

The limitations you put on yourself are largely self-imposed.

It is incredibly important to stop, and breathe sometimes.

You can train your brain to focus on the positive and avoid the negative. 

Play "What was I just thinking?" all day to improve your attitude and outlook.

Always remember- You are not your mind.


How to getin touch with John Hargrave:


Get the book- Mind Hacking: How to Change Your Mind for Good in 21 Days:

Sir John Hargrave, author of the new book MIND HACKING: HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND FOR GOOD IN 21 DAYS, is going without food for 21 days, to show how ordinary people can achieve amazing feats of willpower, by hacking their minds. 

According to Sir John, mind hacking can be used to reprogram any number of behaviors or habits, from conquering anxiety, to improving relationships, to building careers. The trick is rooting out "problem thinking," a process he likens to "debugging" a computer.

"When I tell people I'm going 21 days without food, the first thing they say is, 'Don't die,'" he remarked. "That's a scary thought: this experiment might kill me. But the mind hack I quickly put into place was, I will not die, and in fact will become stronger. That is one of the dozens of mind hacks I will use to survive this extreme mental trial."

Sir John, who started his career as a computer programmer, has a step-by-step system for learning to reprogram the mind. These are presented in his book MIND HACKING as a series of easy "lessons" that anyone can use to rewrite their thought patterns, and in turn, their lives. 

"Your thoughts create your habits, your habits create your actions, and your actions create your life," he said. "In order to change your life, you have to start where your life begins -- in the mind."

To learn more about Sir John's inspiring story, you can follow along on, which is running daily updates of the 21-day experiment:
