Last Show Recap

Non-Conformity

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Non-Conformity

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - November 27, 2010
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Chris Guillebeau

Author Chris Guillebeau joined Ian Punnett for a discussion on how people can lead extraordinary lives and realize their greatest dreams by breaking free of conformity and fear. Guillebeau said he left his own conventional life, as a FedEx shift worker, shortly after 9/11 to pursue world travel, charity work, and entrepreneurship. Thus far he has visited 150 countries, spent four years as a medical charity volunteer in West Africa, and established a successful writing career. Guillebeau invited listeners to think about what they really want from life and provided some helpful steps to attaining it.

"The most important thing is to do what you do intentionally," Guillebeau noted, pointing out that it is not necessary to live the way everyone else does. To begin creating one's own road, Guillebeau recommended listeners examine why they do what they do, figure out what excites them, and what steps will move them closer to their goals. He suggested writing out an ideal day in as much detail as possible, plotting a 5-year plan, and giving oneself permission to fail.

Guillebeau spoke about the importance of determining what values are most important, as well as how to be remarkable by striving for the next level, loving work, questioning rules, and taking responsibility. He also shared examples of people who have successfully left their traditional lives for something more, and, despite the tough economic times, encouraged people to look for the opportunities around them and to the future. "The best jobs in 2015 don't exist yet because now they are being created," Guillebeau added.
