The Person You Want to Be, with Eric Teplitz

Eric Teplitz

On this podcast, I interview guests about their life journeys – their experiences, inflection points, insights, and aspirations. My hope is that these conversations inspire you to reflect more deeply about the person YOU want to be, and to take deliberate action in that direction, without delay.

Ep. 4: Guitar Virtuoso and Purveyor of "Electric Truth",  Andy Timmons
As guitarist for the pop-metal band Danger Danger in the late '80s and early '90s, Andy Timmons toured the world opening for Kiss and Alice Cooper, sold over a million records worldwide, and had two #1 videos on MTV. What he has done since then speaks to his incredible versatility as a musician, his love for music of just about every style you can think of, and his endless appetite for musical growth, exploration, and evolution.Among his many gigs over the years, Andy has been Olivia Newton-John's musical director and guitarist, and he has played on sessions and albums by artists as diverse as Kip Winger, Paula Abdul, Paul Stanley, and drumming legend Simon Phillips. He has performed with many of his own guitar heroes, including Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Steve Morse, Mike Stern, Ace Frehley, Ted Nugent, and Pierre Bensusan.Andy has also become one of the most respected and sought-after clinicians representing Ibanez guitars, touring the world on their behalf.And, over the years, Andy has released a collection of solo records and projects with his own band that feature his breathtaking guitar playing and keen ear for melody - the newest of which, just out now, is called "Electric Truth".Andy Timmons Links:Andy's website: https://andytimmons.comAndy's subscription site (for guitar instruction and more!): https://guitarxperience.net/Follow Andy on Social Media:https://www.facebook.com/AndyTimmonsOfficialhttps://twitter.com/andytimmonsbandhttps://www.instagram.com/andytimmonsofficialAbout Your Host, Eric Teplitz:Website: http://ericteplitz.com/Schedule a free coaching consultation: http://ericteplitz.com/work-with-me/Access a free preview of Eric's online course "Opening to Greater Possibilities": https://ericteplitz.thinkific.com/

Ep. 1: World-Class Mountaineer, Entrepreneur, Author and Adventurer, Gary Scott
A native of Australia, Gary Scott has been traveling and exploring the world for over 50 years. He has been running his own adventure travel trips since 1982, when he started a trekking and guiding company - Alpine Ascents - in Kathmandu, Nepal, at the age of 24. He has led over 250 international adventure trips, including 40 trips in Nepal, and over 100 tours in the Dolomites of northern Italy, his favorite place in the world.In 1986, Gary set a world record for the fastest unsupported solo ascent of Denali in Alaska. He was the first person ever to climb Denali in a single day, climbing it solo from the 7,000-foot landing strip to the 20,320-foot summit in a superhuman 18-1/2 hours, a record time that stood for 27 years.He has been a team member on two successful Mt. Everest expeditions, himself reaching 27,500 feet without supplemental oxygen before turning back to assist a sick Sherpa guide. He has also co-led expeditions to Mt. Kanchenjunga, the third highest peak in the world, and to the technical Mt. Ama Dablam, as well as to many other big mountains in Nepal.Though now fully retired from mountaineering, Gary still has a huge passion for taking people walking in the mountains and, in 2008, he founded Right Path Adventures, an award-winning international adventure travel company that provides first-class experiences to his clients.On his trips, Gary encourages people to move past their self-imposed doubts and fears, and he has a knack for helping people push themselves beyond what they ever thought they could do or achieve.Over the years, Gary has also authored rock climbing and triathlon guidebooks, as well as the highly inspirational book "Summit Strategies - Secrets to Mastering the Everest in Your Life".Gary Scott Links:Right Path Adventures: https://rightpathadventures.com/Summit Strategies (book): https://www.amazon.com/Summit-Strategies-Secrets-Mastering-Everest/dp/1582701016/ref=sr_1_1?crid=309WUQX000JYC&amp&keywords=summit+strategies&amp&qid=1648609810&amp&sprefix=summit+strategies%252Caps%252C132&amp&sr=8-1&_encoding=UTF8&tag=inspiredliv02-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=4f54ddcb6bd4f1384dfd86a2c26cce31&camp=1789&creative=9325Blog post referenced:"The Most Effective Antidepressant": https://ericteplitz.medium.com/the-most-effective-antidepressant-c4ce82eaf083About Your Host, Eric Teplitz:Website: http://ericteplitz.com/Schedule a free coaching call: http://ericteplitz.com/work-with-me/Access a free preview of Eric's online course "Opening to Greater Possibilities": https://ericteplitz.thinkific.com/
