Kevin GianniWhat do you do when you realize that you may have a hereditary cancer risk and your intent is to find out the keys to perfect wellness? Well, you spend the next two and a half years going across North America in a 36-foot, bio-fuelled RV, named ‘the Kale Whale’, with your wife talking with experts about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to healthy living.

Kevin Gianni is joining us this week to talk about his adventures, learnings and rock bottoms that he had to hit before recognizing what works for him and his body despite what all the professionals say.


Meet Kevin Gianni

Kevin Gianni seriously started researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living, he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and self-published six books on natural health, diet, and fitness, produced over 900 YouTube videos with over 10 million views and has published hundreds of articles.

He’s experimented with many diets and medical protocols to differentiate myth from reality. Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best foods, medicines and clinics to introduce them to the readers of the blog he co-founded — RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world. (He’s now a contributor there.)

During that time, he and Annmarie co-founded Annmarie Skin Care, a natural, organic skin care and beauty company. He spends his time now keeping the wheels on this award-winning line as acting CEO.

Sometimes the media is interested in what he’s done. Either he or the Annmarie Skin Care products have been featured or interviewed by many media outlets including The New York Times, Huffington Post, the Style Channel, FOX News, Treehugger and Organic Spa Magazine.

He lives in Berkeley, California with his wife, Annmarie, two kids, two cats and a chicken.

Robbie Vorhaus 2Robbie Vorhaus’ path is very inspiring and also sounds very common (at least the first part of his story). On the outside, Robbie’s life appeared ideal: a New York City Park Avenue apartment, a home in the Hamptons, two adoring children in world-class private schools, and a thriving PR agency representing world leaders, celebrities, sports stars, entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies. Privately, though, his life was falling apart.

A marriage in trouble, jeopardized health, and financial pressures culminated on vacation when his family asked: “Dad, are you really happy?” Realizing he was in peril of losing everything he held dear, Robbie courageously followed the advice he had given clients for decades: Follow your heart. Choose to be happy. Consciously make everything better than you found it.

The result: Robbie closed his agency, moved his family to their small Sag Harbor home, started a leadership and crisis consultancy, and began anew.

Now transformed, healthy, happy, and celebrating a marriage of more than 25 years, Robbie shares how he overcame his struggle and how you can to! Robbie has a very interesting perspective on how we can begin slowly (sustainably) to change our behaviour toward living a more fulfilled life – One less. One more.


Meet Robbie Vorhaus

Robbie Vorhaus is widely recognized as one of the top three leadership, communications, reputation and crisis experts and advisors in the world. Vorhaus is the best-selling author of the critically acclaimed, transformational book, One Less. One More. Follow Your Heart. Be Happy. Change Slowly. (Storytelling, Inc., 2014) Robbie Vorhaus is also a frequent media contributor, public speaker and teacher on authenticity and the clarity of purpose and vision.
