It’s a topic most of us avoid thinking about, let alone talking about: death. As our guest today says, “No one wants to think there’s a book end to their life.” Even though we don’t talk about that book end, it will and eventually does happen for each of us, no exception… at least not as of this show’s release date!
My guest today is a man who has invested plenty of time, thought and energy on the subject of death. But not in a morbid way, rather in a way that puts life and everyday living into perspective. He asks the question: how can we live each day fully, so that we may die empty?
In fact, he was so impacted by this question and this premise of ‘dying empty’ that he wrote on the subject. During this show, we talk about the message behind the book and how to unleash your best work every single day.
In this episode, you’ll learn about:
- The importance of being fiercely curious.
- Why the people who ask the best questions, ultimately win… according to Todd.
- Why finding your “bliss station” is so important.
- Instead of asking what is my purpose or my calling, you should be asking: what is it that I have to offer?
- The value I place on giving my staff the freedom to ask any and all questions.
- Todd’s take on the things in your life you will most regret – and how to avoid them.

I value every review I receive, and often read them out on the show. If you take the time to leave one, THANK YOU - You rock!
Candy Chang got a lot of people thinking about this concept (see image of ‘the wall’ above)… And, when I first read Todd’s book “Die Empty”, I couldn’t put it down. His views and thoughts on living a full life and leaving it ‘all out on the table’, so to speak, are so inspiring. You’ve got to listen to get the full impact of who Todd is, what he stands for and why it matters to you.
This conversation with Todd, as well as his book, moved me and inspired me; I hope you have the same experience.
