“There’s only one way to learn, to really illuminate our lives, and that’s to jump”

Today’s inspiring shoptalk radio guest is Preston Smiles. Preston is a heartfelt, intelligent man who is a leader in the world of conscious media. He’s a brilliant writer, thought leader and co-founder of this awesome thing called the Love Mob – basically a flash mob with the message of Love, which we’ll hear more about it in this episode. We also get to hear where the “Smiles” in his name came from.

Through a heavy wakeup call, Preston went from being in a gang, beating people up, angry at life to going to a prestigious school, transforming and becoming full of love. He is an amazing, full of life dude, and has a powerful story. We get deep, we talk about life, perspective and much more.

In this episode, we talk about how thoughts shape and shift what we attract in our lives. Some thoughts even hold us captive even when we aren’t thinking about it. Preston is an inspiration and has many thought provoking concepts, so lets jump in!
