Favorite quotes:

1. If you really want to come and work with your body and get healthy and lose weight possible, one great place to start is our hormones and the reason is because that's what is communicating with our entire body.

2. What have we learned in the past by giving up a whole entire macronutrient? That we always end up sicker on the other side. Carbohydrates are an essential part of hormone function.

3. Fruit was a gift from God, I just can’t say that is safe to give up.

4. Naturally speaking in some cases it is better for women to be a little bit on the heavier side then underweight, fertility speaking. And so it is hard for women to lose weight, it’s not something that our bodies naturally wants to do and do it well.



In this episode I answer these questions:

1. How do I overcome a victim mentality?  (46:13)

2.  Do I have to go to church to be a Christian? (53:25)

Favorite quotes:

1. Stop chasing the numbers that you think mean you’re popular and start chasing the numbers that are actually going to make a difference in your business.

2. So often people think that “well I need more page views or I need more likes on Instagram or I need more followers in order to make more money,” and that’s absolutely not true. If you’re not leveraging the audience you have, you’re never going to be leveraging the audience you wish you had.

3. It is because of those hard times, not despite them, that I’m now able to have the business that I have.

4. There was never one moment when it magically all turned around. I think so often in life we expect there to be this magical moment, you know this huge turning point of saying “oh from now on my life is going to be different.” It didn’t work that way for me.

5. No matter how badly you screw up your life, you can always turn it around.

6. Fear impacts us, whether we call it fear or anxiety or we call it this apprehension about moving forward.

7. Once you can start to identify that fear and start to see those patterns in your life, that’s when you can start to do something about it.


In this episode I answer these questions:

1. What do I need to do to make my skin look great as I near my 40s? (48:26)

2. What should I do if I don’t agree with all of my church’s teachings? (54:50)

In this episode, we are joined by productivity guru and business giant Michael Hyatt. Michael shares the counterintuitive secret behind why his company grew by 65% last year.

He also shares why a work/life balance is vital to great work and how can practically implement guard rails to protect our time.

Favorite quotes:

1. Constraints are not the enemy but our friend.

2. I want to win at work and succeed at life and I think both those things are possible.

3. Focus is a superpower. Especially in a day and age where the average person is so distracted, we really have an opportunity to stand out if we can regain our focus and do the task that drives the results.

4. Our time is fixed. It’s a zero-sum game. When I say yes to one thing, I’m going to implicitly say no to something else. I gotta understand the tradeoff and there is a tradeoff so what am I willing to trade.

5. When you’re not rested you’re not focused, you’re not productive. You’re easily distracted.

6. Productivity is more about managing your energy than managing your time.



In this episode I answer these questions:

1. What is a simple parenting tip that will help my family be happier? (42:31)

2. Do we have to tithe? (45:31)

Carlos Whittaker .png

We'll also discuss what it means to kill the proverbial spiders in our lives and how we can truly pursue a life of freedom and abundance. You are going to love this one!


In this episode we discuss:

1. His dramatic career change

2. How he landed his first speaking gig at the White House

3. How to really change our behavior and our lives

Favorite quotes:

1. I felt like God was telling me it was time to stop leading worship and singing and start writing a book. And, for me because I did all the work ahead of time with my blog—I had spent years building a tribe of people that were used to reading what I had to say, that wasn’t going to be a hard transition for them. But, for me, it was scary. How in the world was I going to do the speaking and the writing thing?

2. I feel like a lot of worship leaders come up to me and say, “I think I want to do something else.” I always say, “Awesome. How have you been building into what that next thing is? That is what you are going to need to do right now and it’s going to take a little time.”

3.  My father said to me, “Carlos, I’ve watched you your entire life clean the cobwebs of sin. You can no longer clean the cobwebs. You must kill the spider, the root of your behavior.”

In this episode I answer these questions:

1. I saw you taught on “mom guilt” for Mother’s Day. Can I watch the sermon anywhere and can you share some wisdom from it? (47:33)

2. What version of the Bible do you use? My church uses NIV and NLT and my Bible Study uses ESV. I want to make sure that I’m using the right versions and I trust your opinion.  (55:40)

3. Did you have a mentor who taught you how to communicate professionally from the stage and on your show? (57:15)

Favorite quotes:

1 I’ve found a lot of times the reasons we don’t do things or step into new things or start small is really a mindset problem and not a skill-set problem.

2.  What we take from social media—what we choose to do with it is actually up to us. And what we choose to internalize is up to us. There is a lot of external pressures, but it is our responsibility as to how we handle those.

3.  When you are so focused on what you are missing out on, you are missing out on where you are, what you can actually do, and the power you have.



In this episode I answer these questions:

1.  What is your favorite beauty splurge this month? I know how you love your makeup. (33:33)

2. My son is in pre-school. We can’t decide whether we should send him to public school, Christian private school, or homeschool. What is your advice for us as Christian parents? (35:55)

3. Would you rather hire a nice fool or a reliable jerk? (39:10)

Favorite quotes:

1. At the end of my life, I don’t want to be known for doing 10 things just kind of okay. I want to be known for doing one thing really really well and leaving a legacy in it.

2. Our gifting doesn’t outpace our maturity.

3. We may be gifted in something but God still has some maturing to do in that area, or it just may not be the right time and we need to be patient. And even though we may be qualified on paper to do something or have the skills to do something, doesn’t necessarily mean that we should.

4. So many people spend all this time preparing for and planning an epic wedding but then they don’t prepare or plan for an epic marriage. The wedding day is just a day but your marriage is forever.



In this episode I answer these questions:

1. I want to learn more about body language, what can you teach me? (42:33)

Favorite quotes:

1. Our businesses were never meant to satisfy us because God loves us too much so he will never allow us to be satisfied with something other than Him. That dissatisfaction is always going to grow as we pursue something other than Him.  

2. Am I pursuing success for myself or am I pursuing a purpose that God has put inside of me to do?

3. God has purposely given you life experiences and gifts, talents, and abilities for the purpose of bringing Him glory and serving others.

4. We are being poor stewards of his grace when we lock up the gifts, talents, and abilities he has given us.

5. Guilt is this feeling that weighs you down but it’s a feeling, it’s not necessarily true. Conviction is with a goal of correction from the Holy Spirit. Anytime we feel guilty, we have to ask ourselves is this guilt or is it conviction?


In this episode I answer these questions:

1. What’s a quick happiness tip that I can use every day? (38:42)

2. Does God still do miracles?  (41:45)
