On a personal note:
I literally tuned into Steve Harvey's TV show and my friend Tiaja Piere was on talking with Steve Harvey, celebrity trainer Obi Obadike, and movie star Morris Chestnut. Obi and Morris co-authored the book "The Cut". Basically, Obi thought it would be a great idea to write a book after Morris had gotten into tip top shape in 12 weeks getting ready for the sequel to "The Best Man" his plan. People actually talked about Morris’s physique more than they talked about the movie. Obi and Morris decided to get together and write a book based on the training protocol that Obi used to get Morris into shape. The dynamic duo actually reached out to people on Facebook who would like to be part of the study. Tiaja Piere responded to their Facebook invitation to get in shape with many others, and as they say the rest is history. My friend Tiaja's transformation was astonishing and really peaked my interest, as I have known her for years. I also heard Obi and Morris on"The Model Health Show" with Shawn Stevenson and thought I would love to have them on my podcast. How is that for the power of positive thinking. You have to ask for what you want and then act upon it!
