Today, I interview Dr. Tressa Berman who was a child performer -- singer and songwriter from an early age. She put away her creative life for something that felt "safer," and became an academic professor until somewhere in the middle of that career, she had a breakdown/breakthrough.

This breakdown  brought her to her spiritual path and back to her creative life. She eventually left academia to embrace the unknown and all the perceived risks. So her "breakdown" led to her "breakthrough" ... which is what she teaches people to realize with the tools that grew from owning her creative voice.

Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
