Kute Blackson is a next generation world leader out to awaken millions to Love and to Live their inspired destiny.

Kute quickly learned that the “outside-in” approach favored by so many in the personal development space had to become an inside-out approach. So he decided to create his own method—a process that liberates the individual and the true self at the core and then pushes those gifts outward into the universe. This helps the individual get in touch with who they really are. It is a process of breaking free—so that the individual can live, give, and share the truest expression of their self. This is what Kute calls “Liberated Living.”

Kute is back on the show to celebrate the release of the paperback copy of You Are The One: A Bold Adventure in Finding Purpose, Discovering the Real You which shows readers how to unlock their true potential and live a life they love, through love.

Today we'll dive deeper into Kute's journey in writing the book, what's transpired over the year it's been out through getting the message out and what he's had to face along the way. We'll also dive deeper into some of the key concepts of his book You Are The One: A Bold Adventure in Finding Purpose, Discovering the Real You.

  • How we can bring more love into our thoughts, actions, and intentions

We all have a particular journey in life, lessons to learn, and a path that leads us to those lessons. Before I came across personal development, and the art and science of maintaining your mindset, food was my medicine. It still is the foundation of my lifestyle, and being nimble in thought, feeling, and action is the #1 skill I continue to zero in on and develop in my every day life, and especially when life presents it's unique challenges.

My guest today has a long track record of success in the fitness and nutrition space. Her most recent book, Miracle Mindset: A Mother, Her Son, and Life's Hardest Lessons tells the story of her son's near fatal accident that called upon all her mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual resources to continue moving forward and keeping faith through a very challenging time.

JJ is the author of four NY Times bestsellers: The Virgin Diet, The Virgin Diet Cookbook, JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet, and JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet Cookbook.

Her latest book, Miracle Mindset, shows warrior moms how to be strong, positive leaders for their families, while exploring the inspirational lessons JJ learned as she fought for her own son’s life. JJ hosts the popular JJ Virgin Lifestyle Show podcast and regularly writes for Huffington Post, Rodale Wellness, Mind Body Green and other major blogs and magazines. In addition to her work with nutrition and fitness, JJ is also a business coach and founded the premier health entrepreneur event and community, The Mindshare Summit.

Today we dive into JJ's story of what she did to navigate this challenging time and how she maintained focus on her son being able to live a thriving life again, even after what seemed like many end of the road situations along the way.
