68. Tangible Positive Energy

“To feel another’s life force as powerfully as one’s own, that is love.” 

― Marty Rubin

If you need an inspirational boost, press play on this one! I am extremely excited to welcome Pratiti Pathak to the T&T mic, Pratiti is a Real Estate professional, business coach, business owner, entrepreneur, and one of the most positive people I have met in life thus far. Pratiti has some real-life experience under her belt at this point, so the ability for her positively to shine and be shared so freely is no small feat. She grew up amongst few other Indian children and experienced bullying, she married and divorced, had one son, and lost him in a tragic accident. Her mission to connect with people and share her bright light and positive outlook is her gift. She coaching others on shifting their thoughts and in turn helping them make some of the biggest business and personal decisions in their life. 2020 has been a tough one, but when you hear people like Pratiti Pathak speak and feel the positive energy, attitude, and outlook- you dust off the dirt and get your mind right for a new day. Enjoy this one, THANK YOU Pratiti, from me and everyone else that is blessed to cross paths with you. Cheers!



Questioning a better way. Change your mind, change your life. The power of choice. Sharing positive energy and being part of the solution. Overcoming adversity, loss, and finding the silver lining. Turmeric and tequila. Resilience. Blessings and quality or quantity.

Her passion has always been connecting with people, building relationships and helping others grow.

It’s not about the negative experiences that we go through in our lives – it’s what we learn, how we grow and evolve into the best versions of ourselves through those experiences. How learning and growing from our experiences only come from consciously choosing our thoughts to create our emotions from which we take action to create the results we want in our lives. We all have a story about our lives that cover all positive and negative experiences that we’ve gone through in our personal life, in our business and through our relationships. Every action, inaction or re-action we take is to either experience a good feeling or avoid a bad feeling. Create your Results by Design and Not by Default! Live your Life with Intention!

67. One Big Win

“The key is not the will to win… everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.”

-Bobby Knight

Winning? Remember when that word was running around in pop culture? Today we get into discussion on winning, losing, and everything in between as I welcome podcast OG, Larry Roberts to T&T. Larry has been in the game for over 5 years and has created and ran several podcasts. Today he intro’s us to his latest and greatest cast, One Big Win. We unpack the power of showing up, what you gain from losing, winning over time, and what that one big win can mean for someone and the trajectory of their future. Maybe it is a series of wins? All of the above! This is an awesome cast for everyone transitioning personally, professional, or anyone in 2020… aka all of us! Let’s find the good and see where some losses were actually wins or at least the loss that teed us up for the next big win. You know, one door closes, another opens… #winning 🙂


Success and failure. Questioning a better way. The evolution of podcasting and humans too. The power of showing up, again and again. Do the reps and the right thing will come aka stay prepared. Breakdowns and breakthroughs. Extremes, balance, and martial arts. Fighting, hugging, and fining the inner real you.

This is a special one, I welcome long time friend (aka fam), Rosa Jad to T&T for an Open Mic conversation! Rosa is a longtime radio host on KS107.5, one of the nation’s top stations AND she is an avid fitness enthusiast, AND a practicing Muslim, amongst many other things. If you know Rosa, you know she is a big personality, full of jokes, quick wit, and knows just about everything music and pop culture. What you might not know about is her deep-rooted passion in faith and how much it has helped guide her journey forward, particularly in these trying 2020 times. Rosa is the perfect example of Turmeric &Tequila, wearing many authentic hats and jugging the juxtaposition of the opposing worlds with grace. You can live in a world of business, party, and chaos, and maintain your core values, religious beliefs, take a stand for social justice… and complete a 75-day health challenge, Rosa is the proof. We cover work, race, fitness, religion, how to set up a camera:), and so much more. JV moments turning into varsity philosophy and the understanding that we never stop growing if we keep an open mind and an awareness around constant improvement. This is a human to keep an eye on, she is an important one in this word and is just getting started.

Rosa Jad

Nothing is off limits when Rosa steps into the studio! The outgoing girl who grew up avidly listening to KS1075 has now found herself in the shoes of her idols.

Born in Saudi Arabia and living in Denver since 2000, while finishing up her senior year of high school, she landed an internship with a prestigious sports radio station. In 2013, at just 17 years old, she became an on-air KS1075 personality doing weekend shifts, while being a full-time college student. Fast-forwarding 3 years later, Rosa graduated early from the University of Colorado, Denver, while simultaneously working her way up the ranks at the station.

Ready to put the city on a wave weekdays 10am – 3pm. Unapologetically herself, she is breaking barrios for Arabic woman across America.

“We all have two choices: we can make a living or we can design a life.”

-Jim Rohn

Designing the life you want, it is possible! Today I welcome Justin Balunsat to Turmeric & Tequila. Justin is an entrepreneur, investor, fellow podcaster, and someone who has overcome addiction. On this cast we discuss trials, tribulations, and the conscious choices we need to make to design the lives we actually want.

Justin shares his breakdown, breakthrough, and how he took charge of his health, life, and destiny. I believe in second chances and it’s never too late to make a positive change. This cast is for anyone looking to live authentically by their own rules, in chase of their own dreams.
