Have you ever felt like you had lost your authentic self, while in pursuit of success and happiness? Well, our guest today is Greg Gagnon, the Barefoot Businessman from San Diego, CA.  

Yes he really does business in his bare feet.  In fact he does most everything without shoes!  In this interview, Greg eloquently shares his journey to that transformation moment in his life - that tragic wake up call - where he realized he had lost himself in the pursuit of the American Dream.  A failed marriage, alcoholism, overworked and stressed, he had to make a change and there was no turning back.    

He is still a successful businessman today, owning multiple retail stores, but he's learned now how to say NO to certain things so he can say YES more often to the positive possibilities of life.  

Listen in as Greg shares what he did to recapture his true self, and how he has incorporated fun, friends, and freedom into his busy schedule.  Cool activities that add to the richness of life. Like running marathons barefoot, collecting and playing the Didgeridoo, paddling a Hawaiian Outrigger canoe, piloting a Citabria, building classic cars, and most of all, making authentic connections with people he meets along the way.

Greg is dedicated to being a positive example for others, and welcomes the opportunity to help people discover their highest self.  He is a beautiful example of a man who graciously embraces life on every level.
