In today’s Dharma and Dollars show, I connect with Dana Skoglund, about building a system for your own career or leveraging the system you already have in place. There are people whose strength lies in creating their own system and building it from the ground up and there are others whose natural talents are better used to reinvent someone else’s system. If you’re wondering which type of person you are, this episode is for you.

We rap about being lifelong learners and experimenters by being open and receptive to new ideas and new systems. Is it your natural genius to build and create your own system or not? Are you open to changing your paradigm and learning what you truly want to learn in the process?  What are you learning right now that you need to turn around and teach others?

Find out the answers to these questions and more, as well as how to best uplevel yourself and your system for rapid evolution and career development, in today's podcast.


I rap with Donna Skoglund about systems and leverage:

  • The system of Bowspring yoga, its challenges and its benefits
  • Why it is so important to be open to new ideas, to drop our expectations and our ego and to always be experimenting
  • Dynamic dharma, what is working and not working and how we can constantly improve ourselves and our systems


What you’ll get out of tuning in:    

  • Why yoga is essential in our fast paced, movement based lives
  • The difference between someone whose innate talent is to create their own system vs. someone who’s natural abilities are in improving a system that’s already in place  
  • How to get yourself to your desired goal, faster
