I have the honor today to share the insight and wisdom of a true friend, Srinivas Rao. Srini has been one of the most supportive people of my work going back to the time I started my site. He has a rare combination of generosity, humility, friendship and knowledge that are not easy to come by. On his show (BlogcastFM) he’s interviewed some of the most successful bloggers and content creators in the world and has also picked up an insane amount of life lessons that he openly shares through his interviews and his posts on his other site I have a good feeling that you will connect with his story, his quest for truth and freedom, and his love for life and surfing.

Some key insights from this interview:

  • Why the conventional road is often a path to an unfulfilled life
  • Some unexpected and awesome rewards from following his calling
  • The vital importance of being in the moment in surfing and in life
  • How to surround yourself with incredibly inspiring people no matter where you live
  • The biggest insight that took his show to over 70,000 downloads per month
  • The power of supportive people who light a fire under you
  • The dangerous pitfalls of pleasing people

I love the "be in the moment" in the ocean it kicks your butt! And I love the Mayi and Maria shout outs!


Hey Bernardo,


Thanks so much for  having me on the show. You really ask some amazing questions.  It's always fun when I get to be on the other side of the mic. It's been truly a joy to have you as a friend  and watch your show evolve.  You're up to some amazing things.  


Best 40 minutes I've spent all week! And the video didn't cut out 1/2 way for once! 

Amazing interview. My mood changed and I actually got an insight that I'll be applying to what I do when I pull things back together in the near future.

Can't agree more about having relationships that build you up. I've learned just recently that even though I can work alone, I can't stand it! I need the energy of other people - their ups and downs, insights, talents, quirkiness, etc. to keep me going. 

And water! Can't live without the ocean! I wish I lived year round in the tropics 'cause I need the freedom of the ocean. 

Thanks so much for providing a lift for me today!! 

Keep being yourselves...'cause nobody else does it as well! :)
