Hustle Culture Paradox: The Unintended Consequences of Fast-Paced Life

What is up welcome to Wellness + Wisdom the place where we discover how to gather apply and embody mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial intelligence so we can live life well in the modern hustle culture.

I'm Josh Trent and over the past 8+ years, I've asked myself and my guests a profound yet simple question: how do I live my life well?

What is the wisdom it requires, to live an amazing life? I believe wisdom is experience, knowledge, and discernment of love and fear, dark and light.

Life-Altering Journey

On today's podcast we absorb this wisdom from my friend and return guest Mike Salemi to explore the hustle culture paradox the antidote for the grind, Mike's work with Kambo and healing energy, and with his new son Luca on the way the meaning of loving fatherhood.

Mike is a dear brother. He's a podcast host of The Path podcast which I got to be a guest on he is also a world-class Health wellness and fitness presenter specializing in kettlebell and the advanced human movement he's also a deeply educated check practitioner with more certifications than you could count.

But what I love the absolute most about Mike is his heart. Every time I hang out with him he makes me smile I can feel his childlike curiosity for life and I can only imagine how much value and how much life-altering knowledge you yourself will get from this podcast.

“We are more than who we think we are. We are more than what we do. There's a time and a place for the hustle and the grind but we need to develop those pause points and moments in our day to reflect:

Is that actually true? Or is that coming from a wound, projection, idea, or conditioning.” – Mike Salemi
