In this episode, I chat with Patrice Rene a defensive back who was at one point ranked #1 football player in Canada. In fact, he was recently drafted to the CFL 21st overall by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and someone who had decided to return to the NCAA to play out his last year of Eligibility with the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights.

But that's not all, Patrice is also one of the co-founders and brand ambassador of Sportsmxn, a company that helps branding local elite athletes so they can focus on what they do best.

In this episode, Patrice and I chat about his journey making the jump to the US to play football and all the support and help he had making that happen, we talk about the lowest of lows rebuilding after a devastating ACL tear injury, as well as the transferrable skills and identity that football has taught him.

This is one of my favourite podcasts because football is a sport I am truly passionate about myself. I think you're going to really enjoy this episode whether you're an athlete or not because of everything that the sport has taught him outside of the sport

Today's guest is Brandon Peacock: a friend of mine who has one of the most insane personal stories I've ever heard.

Brandon was the victim of a nearly fatal drive-by shooting in June of 2020, suffering 3 gun-shot wounds, 1 in his shoulder that just missed his lungs and broke many of his ribs, one in his left leg and a third time in his femoral artery in his right leg. Brandon was, of course, not the intended target but was truly in one of those "wrong place, wrong time" situations.

But you see, Brandon does NOT see himself as a victim. I won't get into all the details in these show-notes, as you'll have to listen to the podcast to hear more but on a high-level Brandon has one of the most INSANE recovery stories I've ever heard of.

His mindset coupled with his world-class support system and determination to help others has led to him creating a nonprofit called Hit The Ground Running, a not-for-profit dedicated to creating an environment where victims of trauma can overcome their unique barriers to recovery and live healthy and prosperous lives.

And the craziest part of this all? Just over a year after the incident, Brandon is training to run his first marathon, which he will be completing shortly after the release of this episode. 42 kilometers from someone who wasn't supposed to be alive, let alone walk or run.

This week, I chat with Danny Miranda. Danny is a writer, podcaster, connector, and life-long learner who I really look up to. Honestly, he's my favourite follow on Twitter as he exudes absolute positive and hope in every single one of his tweets, ideas and interactions.

Seriously, I've never heard the dude complain, be negative or put anyone down and his platform emobidies that. Danny started one of my favourite podcasts, The Danny Miranda Podcast and has now surpassed well over 100 episodes. His podcast consists of thought provoking conversations taking a journey through the minds of the world's top performers, including Gary Vaynerchuk, Tom Bilyeu, and Kamal Ravikant just to name a few.

I look up to how Danny lives his live with absolute gratitude - he meditates for a minimum of 30 minutes every morning, trains his body and his mind, and manifests incredible experiences. But my favourite thing about this dude? He follows his natural curiosity.

Welcome to the it's Not That Deep Podcast, I'm your host Deepak Sharma and my mission is to make the best of the 1 life I have by realizing my potential. That's why I have conversations with high-performers from all walks of life to level up my health, wealth, and happiness. Thanks for joining me on this journey.

This week, I chat with Dan Clark, CEO of Brain FM, an app that curates functional music, scientifically proven to help you focus better, sleep better, meditate, and get in 'the zone.' You know what I'm talking about, that 'zone' when you're looking to get some deep work done, or get into some creative work and you can't necessarily have your favourite songs with lyrics playing... Well that's exactly what brain.fm is: this app generates music designed to stimulate parts of your brain that help you focus, but don't require your full attention.

I'm really excited about this episode because I genuinely use brain.fm every single day of my life. This is not an exaggeration. I use the app to get into focused flow states and bust out work, I use it every night as white noise and I can tell you straight up from my experience, I wake up more well-rested and happier when I'm using this app.

At this point it might sound like I'm sponsored by brain FM and am affiliated with them, and as cool as that would be - I really just love the app that much. And so does Dan, the CEO of the company who I'm talking with today. In fact, after Dan tried Brain.fm himself, he wrote the company nonstop and believed in the product SO much that he offered to work for free. 2 years later he became the CEO. You won't want to miss this podcast if you care about self-development, meditation, life optimization and high performance.

This week, I chat with Anthony Cockrell, founder & co-host of Krew Season, a Youtube channel, Podcast and brand. Anthony has appeared on ESPN, TMZ, Reddit, Worldstar, but is most well-known for his consistent presence on Twitter @TheTrillAC.

What started on twitter evolved as Anthony & some of his closest homies got together to build Krew Season up on Youtube, where they have real and open conversations about relationships, dating, pop culture, social issues and everything in-between. So it's really no surprise that when they launched The Krew Season podcast, it soared to the top 50 relationships podcasts in America, and I believe this is really just the beginning.

In this episode, we talk about scratching that itch to find your creative outlet, the importance of starting and adapting over trying to be perfect, maintaining a 9-5 job while building your own business, as well as how to juggle family & obligations with multiple ventures.

I really enjoy the vibe and energy Anthony and his co-hosts put out on their show, so make sure to give them a follow, all the links are in the show description.

This week, I chat with my friend Chris LaCharity, Ottawa's #1 Luxury Real Estate agent. Chris has built an extremely successful career through his ability to develop strong relationships, provide exceptional client service, and also close multimillion dollar deals.

Don't believe me? Check out his website www.ChrisLaCharity.com to see the 7 figure listings he's got. That being said, this episode isn't actually about badass real estate. Although Chris lives a lifestyle of work hard-play hard, by the end of this podcast you'll get to know that Chris is honestly a super humble guy who prioritizes his health, relationships, well-being as well as mindfulness. These are all topics he outlines in his book 7 Figures To Success.

In this episode we dive in on how he got to where he is today and some of the challenges he's faced along the way. We chat about his career in sales and his love for cars, but then we get into deeper talks about the ego, about what really matters, and the legacy that he'd like to leave behind.

This week, I chat with my friend James Rankin. James is a 20-year old serial entrepreneur and YouTuber who is one of the most passionate hustlers I’ve ever met.

After dropping out of college at 18, James went full-tilt into building the life of his dreams by listening to his gut and starting his own coffee company, North Brew. What started off as a strictly e-commerce business, James has now gotten into 20+ stores and aims to grow and expand MUCH further.

And if that wasn’t impressive enough, James recently launched ANOTHER business, Maple Tea Company. When he’s not busy doing all that, you can find James documenting his journey on his YouTube channel or delivering motivating entrepreneurship speeches to local high schools and universities,

In this episode, we chat about his amazing story, the importance of sales, having a resilient mindset, public speaking and much more. I’m genuinely inspired by this dude’s hustle and I’m sure you will be too.

This week, I chat with someone who makes me feel SUPER LAZY, Laura Kelly. Laura is a professional wedding & engagement photographer, a business coach, a copywriting & messaging pro, as well as the host of the “You Might Not Like It” Podcast. But that’s not all - Laura’s also the mother of 2 kinder-gardeners!

Laura is extremely self-aware, as you’ll get to know. We get to talking about her journey, the role of identity, as well as her story of pivoting from the dream photography business she built to building yet ANOTHER successful dream business. 

She broke down the 3 non-negotiable boxes that absolutely had to be checked for this new business which include:

  1. It has to be location independent
  2. She no longer wanted to miss out on weekends (she did her time) and;
  3. It had to include her voice.

This manifested in starting her own podcast, developing a killer personal brand, and leaning in on her strengths. Laura has done an incredible job harmonizing her passions and strengths to build a fulfilling life that makes sense for her.

Check out everything she’s up to @LauraKelly.co and www.LauraKelly.co

This week, I chat with serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Rückify, Steve Cody.  He has started and built over 15 local and national successful businesses in the tech, rental, service, e-commerce and retail markets which have generated hundreds of millions in sales!

For those who don’t know, Rückify is basically the airbnb of STUFF. In more eloquent terms, it’s a peer-to-peer rental marketplace where you can put just about anything you have laying around your house up for rent. But what’s really amazing to me is the story about how Steve and his neighbour and fellow titan of business Bruce Linton, came up with the idea for this company.

In this podcast, we talk about his journey plus, some of the big challenges he’s faced, whether entrepreneurs are born or made,  and the foundational business principles that have helped him get to where he is today.
