In this coaching session with Joe, Khe Hy explores his relationship with money and the pursuit of wealth. He examines the internal scorecard that’s been guiding his ambition and what he’d have to feel without it. In these feelings, he uncovers an internal compass that’s been with him all along.
Joe and Brett discuss what happens when a blessing that legitimately supports us in our path — money, free time, security, or even love — becomes something we’re afraid to lose and a condition we place on our freedom.
Joe and Brett invite questions from listeners on the subject of humility. How can we tell the difference between true humility and false modesty?

Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in a relentless cycle of burnout? You’re not alone. In this episode, Joe and Brett dive into the nuances of cyclical burnout — the dependence on adrenaline, the self-perpetuating sense of urgency, the inevitable fiery crash. Learn to feel the difference between stressed idleness and deep rest, exploring the interplay between fear, joy, and excitement. Explore alternative ways of working that may be more energizing than relying on adrenaline, and see how gratitude can open up a powerful escape hatch from the burnout cycle.
To engage in spiritual practice is to bring awareness to our evolution. In this episode, Joe and Brett unpack the relationship between exploring our inner depths and getting things done in the world, and how both can be achieved together when we see business itself as a fertile ground for self-discovery.
How much tension in your life comes from using or avoiding conflict in order to get what you want? What would change if you allowed conflict to deepen your connection with others and find great solutions? In this episode, Brett and Joe unpack the nature of conflict avoidance. They take a deep look at its root causes and symptoms and how it can lead to stagnant relationships, substandard solutions, and a lack of internal alignment. Learn to navigate the turbulent waters of discord with loving boundaries and an open heart, finding the connection and collaboration possible through welcoming conflict as it arises.
Brett probes Joe about his history with money, from avoiding it entirely at first to recognizing the role it played as a surrogate for his father’s love. They discuss how our projections of money can be traced back to their emotional roots.
Joe and Brett talk about what they watch for when looking for a leader or teacher or when exploring a new path or practice. They elaborate on how patterns of saviorhood, superiority, and delegation of authority can show up anywhere in society — in the workplace, in the political sphere, or at the dinner table.
How much of your life do you spend straining and efforting only to spin your wheels and ultimately burn out? In this episode, Joe and Brett peel apart the layers between ‘trying’ and effortless action. They acknowledge the value of each way of being across various life contexts and discuss the role emotional fluidity plays in freely navigating the spectrum — from trying to its polar opposite.
We return to Joe’s journey, where his years-long chase after a momentary experience of oneness slowly expires.
