I recently had the privilege of interviewing country music artist, national TV host, author and media coach Amy Scruggs about her success as a musician (she’s been in the country music industry for more than 15 years opening for artists like Clint Black, Trace Adkins, Charlie Daniels, etc… and currently has a newly released single that is charting globally. In addition to her career in the music industry, Amy also thrives in the media world having been the host of several national TV shows.
Amy’s story is the very embodiment of the main message in my book ‘Living for a Living’. You won’t feel fulfilled if you’re just existing to pay the bills. We need to shift our focus beyond simply surviving, to discovering the ‘Why’ of our very existence. Amy’s story is truly miraculous and she is an example for all of us on how knowing our deepest ‘Why’ in life can lead to a fulfilling career of service to others.
Ayurveda is an ancient, yet modern, body of knowledge of health and life.

When we hear the word 'betrayal', we might simply think of infidelity or an affair. While that is most certainly a form of betrayal, that is only one form of betrayal. Betrayal can be experienced in many different ways by a variety of different people.
When a parent, a friend, a business partner, a spouse, etc... doesn't show up for us in a way that we needed, or when we experience a sense of abandonment from a trusted source, that too is betrayal. Almost all of us have experienced betrayal at some level.
Contrary to popular belief, betrayal isn't something from which you can simply 'forgive' and move forward on an intellectual basis. Unless we address the roots of betrayal, we stay stuck in patterns of insecurity, fear, anger, sadness, a lack of trust, physical disease and illness, and much much more.
In order to heal from betrayal, our sense of 'Self' has to be completely reconstructed. In this episode of The Love Cast with Jamal, I sit down with Dr. Debi Silber to talk more about this all important subject.
Dr. Debi Silber is the founder of the Post Betrayal Transformation Institute and is a holistic psychologist, a health, mindset and personal development expert, and the author of the #1 bestselling book: The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind and Life After a Life Crisis
Dr. Debi Silber has appeared on FOX, CBS, The Dr. Oz Show, TEDx (twice) and more, she’s an award winning speaker, coach and author dedicated to helping people move past their betrayals. Give this episode a careful listen.

This episode of The Love Cast with Jamal is a historic episode as I sit down with former CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) Analyst Brent Giannotta.
This is the first time I had the opportunity to interview a former CIA analyst on the The Love Cast with Jamal podcast. What Brent learned in the CIA has implications for all of us.

As a result, the roots of terror lay much closer to home, possibly even within ourselves. Give this episode a careful listen...
