What’s Your Excuse w/Max Ivey

June 22, 2017

What's Your Excuse host Max Ivey talks about doing one thing every day outside your comfort zone.

Some may refer to these acts as crazy or brave. Email him about your one small step you took after hearing this.

He shares about being offered the opportunity to get his hair dyed and styled and how he didn't shy away from the dare.

He mentions a couple of his favorite sayings including "failure isn't the worst thing that can happen, being afraid to fail is" and the best thing that can happen is to have a friend double dog dare you.

Horror Novelist JF Dubeau on The Frederic Bye Show!

June 21, 2017

Today we chat novels!

We talk to JF Dubeau who just published his debut novel with Inkshares!

We chat about some of the myths about getting publushed, we talk money, we talk about the creative process, the hurdles and lucky breaks he got, and more!

Here is what his novel is about:

The village of Saint-Ferdinand has all the trappings of a quiet life: farmhouses stretching from one main street, a small police precinct, a few diners and cafés, and a grocery store. Though if an out-of-towner stopped in, they would notice one unusual thing―a cemetery far too large and much too full for such a small town, lined with the victims of the Saint-Ferdinand Killer, who has eluded police for nearly two decades. It’s not until after Inspector Stephen Crowley finally catches the killer that the town discovers even darker forces are at play.

When a dark spirit reveals itself to Venus McKenzie, one of Saint-Ferdinand’s teenage residents, she learns that this creature’s power has a long history with her town―and that the serial murders merely scratch the surface of a past burdened by evil secrets.

Who or What Are You Protecting

June 20, 2017

Are you protecting someone, or something, to your own detriment?

We can all train ourselves to believe in something quite strongly. We may adamantly protect a person, a belief or even a dogma, even when such protection proves illogical.

In this podcast, I talk about Stockholm Syndrome, a term coined several decades ago when victims of a Swedish bank robbery curiously protected their own captors, refusing to testify against them in court.

The idea of protecting other people, ideas or even dogmas is universal; it’s part of the human condition. The notion often shows up when we’re part of a religious, peer or group mentality. Within such confines, we often refuse to consider facts or ideas that fall outside the scope of commonly agreed-upon thought.

While we might be open-minded in certain ways, some of us remain highly defensive and protective in others.

Listen in as I explain a few experiences I’ve had in life. See if you can relate and feel more empowered as a result.

Our willingness to open the doors to new light, broader perspectives and alternate ideas not only frees us from hidden fears. It ultimately helps us enjoy greater freedom, harmony and happiness.

Finally, listen in to Casey from Southington, Connecticut talk about what makes her happy from the inside out, too!

The Law Of Attraction and Natural Disasters

June 19, 2017

Several people have asked for help in understanding how the Law of Attraction is at work when something as serious as the tsunami or other natural disasters occur.

If you are wondering the same thing, then this episode may help you understand AND keep your own vibration high and clear.

Listen in, until the end, because there is a special video at the end on the law of attraction that I recommend you watch.


With purpose, passion, and love,


The Blind Blogger on his recent book and speaking tour (and some painful lessons he learned)!

June 14, 2017

This is a special episode with two good buddies chatting about life!

Max Ivey - The Blind Blogger - my good friend, talks about his recent tour.

He spoke to kids who work for the good of their community.

He details how he sold books while sitting in his bus (what a shameless promoter).

He also talks about his recent book signing...when nobody showed up!

We discuss about owning and being proud of our professional titles - he as an author, I, as a creative entrepreneur and investor.

We also chat about building our online audience...

...and other people's fascination when we tell them we are podcasters and bloggers.

Fun chat with an inspiring friend!

Maura Sweeney - Believing Every Authority?

June 13, 2017

Do you always believe what the authorities tell you?

You may not be aware of how frequently -- and sometimes blindly – we accept the words or advice from others without questioning the veracity or intentions of their proclamations and expertise.

Listen to three unique stories and hear several perspectives on what happens when we believe every authority. See how automatically believing every authority doesn’t always help us. This is empowering self-help for anyone on a path toward personal peace and happiness.

Then listen to Davie Bernard who shares what makes her happy from the inside out, too.

The Law Of Attraction and Manifesting Your Desires…?

June 12, 2017

The say you can have anything your heart desires through applying the universal law of attraction. 

However, I learned that the key is to really be in touch with your Higher Self in order for your true heart’s desire to manifest for you on a conscious level. 

If a desire comes to you which is primarily revealed only through your personal ego – your lower self – without actual guidance from your Higher Self, then this desire has a lesser chance of manifesting. 

How then do you tap into that part of you which is in touch with your Higher Self ? 

Listen in as we discuss this fascintation topic!

Dr. Amit Goswami on The Frederic Bye Show!

June 7, 2017

Theoretical Quantum Physicist Dr. Amit Goswami is a retired full professor from the University of Oregon’s Department of Physics where he served from 1968 to 1997.

He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness,” an idea he explicated in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, where he also solved the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect.

Goswami has written several other popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness.

In The Visionary Window, he demonstrates how science and spirituality can be integrated.

In Physics of the Soul, Goswami develops a theory of survival after death and reincarnation.

In The Quantum Doctor, Goswami seeks to integrate both conventional and alternative medicine.

In Creative Evolution, Goswami presents a resolution between Darwinism and the intelligent design of life. In God is Not Dead, Goswami demonstrates that not only are science and religion compatible but that quantum physics proves the existence of God.

In Quantum Creativity: Think Quantum, Be Creative, Goswami explains all facets of creativity—its definition, the quantum thinking it entails, and what is required to be creative.

Most interestingly, Goswami says, “Every human being has creative potential, and grasping the quantum process—do-be-do-be-do—will help everyone to explore his or her creative potential.”

In Quantum Economics: Unleashing the Power of an Economics of Consciousness (May 2015), Goswami focuses on critical issues for a new paradigm in economics and business for the twenty-first century touching upon the stability and sustainability of the economy and leadership as well as creativity and ethics in business.

In his private life, Goswami is a practitioner of spirituality and transformation.

He calls himself a quantum activist. He appeared in the film “What the Bleep Do We Know!?” and its sequel “Down the Rabbit Hole” as well as the documentaries “Dalai Lama Renaissance” and the award winning “The Quantum Activist.”

Maura Sweeney - Making Happy Hour Happy

June 6, 2017

Are you waiting for someone else to create happiness, or are you ready to create some yourself?

In this latest podcast, I take up the topic of Happy Hours! Discover the elements that make a happy hour truly happy and start thinking outside-the-box.

Though I talk about my earliest recollections of family “happy hours” during the 1960’s era of cocktails and martinis, I expand the notion about where – and how – happy hours happen. Join me through a few of my own experiences in life as I created different versions of happy hours. Then be inspired and challenged to make a happy hour happen that’s all your own.

In my first ever challenge of this type, I invite listeners to write and send me photos or videos of their own versions of “Making Happy Hour Happen.”

Then listen in as Brigitte Plugge from The Hague, Netherlands shares with us what makes him/her happy from the inside out, too!

Your Personal Success Made Simple

June 5, 2017
Have you ever wandered through life aimlessly? 
Have you ever been unclear about what you want and who you are? Feeling as though you are not living the life you were destined for?
I did. 
And that was not so long ago. 
When I was a financial advisor I had to sell products I did not believe in. 
The pain in my gut was real. Raw. 
I would get anxious - a sick kind of anxiety - before meeting clients.
The results? 
My sales were terrible. (I was ashamed, which resulted in my sales being even more horrible - like a vicious cycle) 
My self-esteem took a hit. 
My creativity was in a downward spiral. 
I became confused about the life I truly wanted. 
 I asked the Universe constantly: why am I doing this? What is my life's purpose? 
Somewhere inside me I knew I was destined for more. 
I couldn't let anger and bitterness control my life. 
Something had to change. 
Fast forward four years later and I have an online business, a blog, a podcast, and I speak to world-renowned experts like Neale Donald Walsch and Amit Goswami... 
...on a regular basis! 
More importantly, I feel fulfilled. 
It feels right. 
How can this be? 
The major shift occurred when someone offered me to follow a blueprint... 
...both for my personal life and my business.
I learned that self-esteem can be cultivated, that clarity of purpose is possible to achieve...
...and that I have the talent to be creative in my own way. 
I believe the same for you. 
Today's podcast is about your personal success made simple. 
You can watch at www.fredericbye.com/personalsuccess
He talks about the same tools that I used to increase my confidence, "dust off" my toxic feelings...
...and reprogram my mind.
If you are really serious about creating a positive shift in your life...
Your best life might be a few minutes away.
With purpose, passion, and love,

Discover Your Talents (And Promote Them)

May 29, 2017

I remember reading Deepak Chopra's 7 Spiritual Laws Of Success years ago.

In it, he asks the question: If you had all the money in the world, what would you do?

Later in the book, he also recommends to find what our "unique talents" are.

Man, did I struggle with these questions!

I wrote countless lists of skills and gifts I thought I had.

Little did I know that finding our unique talents would be a journey...

...but boy is it worth it!

In this episode, we chat about discovering out talents and promoting them.

Healthy Grief, Unhealthy Grief

May 22, 2017

We all know that it is in one’s highest good to grieve the loss of a relationship.

Healthy grief releases feelings rather than allowing them to get stuck in the body.

Healthy grief allows the griever to heal the loss and move on with life.

Yet grief is not always healing.

Many of us have known people who were stuck in their grief, seemingly locked into the past and unable to move forward in their lives.

What is the difference between those who feel their grief and move on and those who get stuck in it?

Suicide w/Dr. Joe Gallenberger on The Frederic Bye Show!

May 17, 2017

When his beloved brother Peter committed suicide,psychotherapist Dr. Joe Gallenberger met his overwhelming grief with courage, and open-minded curiosity. Using tools learned at The Monroe Institute, and affirming that “love can pierce any veil,” he was soon able to contact Peter on the other side. Joe's experience on how to move through devastating loss in a transformational way, and what he learned about the other side, were shared in Joe's acclaimed book, Brothers Forever.

Heaven Is for Healing envelops and expands upon this, taking up the story twenty years later. He reveals Peter's two-decade journey on the other side, and how Peter, with the most loving assistance, has progressed in healing from his suicide and how he is moving into new options for a next life. He explores the variety of ways suicides are helped to recover and then continue their growth, depending upon their condition when they arrive on the other side.

Joe also shares how this family crisis challenged him over these twenty years. He describes his own struggles with depression, and of how he rose from grief and made it his life's work to help other people live their lives to their fullest potential. He shares the tools he has created to move people from sadness and limitation into abundance and joy.

Maura Sweeney - Living Happy Inside Out

May 16, 2017

When paving the path to happiness from the inside out, we can supercharge our travels by checking in with our emotions. They can speak to us plainly in ways that intellect alone cannot.

This latest podcast got its genesis from two recent encounters, both of which left me with positive, expansive feelings. Those same encounters inspired me to reflect upon two previous experiences from decades ago that provided me with earlier cues to forming healthy relationships. The first was negatively motivated, leaving me questioning myself, my worth and the type of friendships I’d want to keep at bay. In contrast, the other always left me feeling supported, valued and loved.

If you’ve been struggling with familiar, toxic or other unhealthy relationships that drain your energy and joy, you’ll want to pay attention to this podcast.

Giving a nod to Maya Angelou’s adage reminding us how people don’t remember what we say or do, but they remember how we made them feel, you’ll emerge feeling fresher, and more inspired by this podcast.

Discover new ways to assess your healthy relationships. Then empower yourself to refine -- and redefine -- the parameters of some less sound ones, too.

Finally, tune in to Veronika Ligeti from Luxembourg as she shares what makes her happy from the inside out, too!

The Gift Of A [Wise] Teacher

May 15, 2017

There are many tools I use in my personal life to achieve my goals: whether they are financial, business, or creative.

But few have helped me more than actually having a mentor.

Let me explain.

Do you believe that you have more to offer, but struggle to understand how to apply yourself in order to achieve your goals?

Do you find it difficult to believe that you have the ability to fulfill your dreams and live the life that you have always wanted to have?

Many people struggle each and every day with a sense that they will never live up to their full and true potential…

…and unfortunately, many of those individuals will never overcome the personal mental barriers and fears that prevent them from accomplishing their life’s purpose.

Hear about the gift of a [wise] teacher in this latest podcast episode.

May 10, 2017

Are you a knee-jerk reactor to news and stimuli? Do you succumb to words or reports that excite, anger or otherwise move you to fear, anger or unrest? If so, you’re not alone.

We all experience external probes that press our proverbial buttons. Those moments take us away from our peace, happiness and rest and, as unwitting followers, we unwittingly give away our personal power.

If you’ve struggled with being thrown off your place of peace and served as reactor rather than creator of your personal space, this empowering podcast is a help and reminder for you to reclaim it.

In this podcast, empower yourself to be a creator rather than a reactor. Be the power change you wish to see in the world – from the inside out!

Every minute of every day we are faced with choices.

Each decision we make leads us along a new path. The road to our future is determined by the choices we make now!

Unconscious of the fact that we are making these choices we are led down the well-trodden paths of decisions already made.

The road we choose appears familiar because our habitual conditioning has led us this way before.

Why is this?

Leonard Perlmutter wrote the book The Heart and Science of Yoga. 

He will be my guest later this week. 

So today, I share thoughts on what I have learned from speaking with him. I talk wellness of mind. 

The level of spirituality we hold with ourselves is one way in which we establish some wellness of mind. 

Spirituality, on any level, is a way to cleanse the mind and refresh the soul. 

Yoga and meditation are not only about the mind, though. They are a state of our whole being. They are a state of mind, body, and soul.

They provide you with the opportunity to reflect on the inside, to relax, to regroup...

Have you ever heard of mirror work? 

When you mix it with affirmations, your spirit changes. As though a fire is kindled within, and then you begin to feel like a warrior again. 

Affirmations are very powerful tools that can be key in bringing about change in your life, whether it is in the form of personal change or bringing new situations.

Self-affirmations are healing, optimistic messages that you give to yourself to counter your negative messages. Affirmations resemble visualization with mental images but words are used instead

Listen as I share my experience with mirror work, affirmations, Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson...

Barbara also shares her inner journey to wholeness so that readers might be able to relate to their own challenges...

...and growth whether they are replacement children or just feel 'less than' at times.

7 Steps to Achieving Healthy Self-Esteem

April 10, 2017

Do you ever see someone who is perpetually happy and wish you could be like them? 

In my personal experience, I struggled with self-esteem for the longest time.
I was socially awkward. I had a hard time making new friends. 
Most of the times, I felt like I was not "enough". These darn negative voices in my head were louder than the positive ones. 
I began blaming other people for the state of my life: my mother, my absent father, my friends...
One day I decided that I had enough. I took matters in my own hands.  
I read books. I wrote. I did affirmations. I meditated. I trained my mind to love myself. 
I am here to tell you that you CAN achieve a healthy self-esteem…
...but it takes time and effort. 
In my latest podcast, I suggest 7 steps to getting you started right away!
I posted this short episode to help you on your way to a better self-esteem. 
There is no benefit in going through life unhappy. You are missing out. 
Listen to the episode and tell me what you think. 

You CAN achieve a healthy self-esteem…it takes time and effort.

Here are 7 steps to getting you started on your way!

Joe Pardo on What’s Your Excuse w/Max Ivey

April 6, 2017

Joe Pardo is a special guy with a peculiar story. I'll let him introduce himself: 

Society starts with you is more than a motto, it is a way of life. To change society you must first change yourself.


Helping others to achieve their dreams has always been my goal in life. When I was younger I dreamed of becoming a child psychologist in order to help others deal with the strain of divorce. At the age of six I began working with computers which helped hone my problem solving skills. My third childhood dream was becoming a DJ which taught me an endless set of skills and really helped me break out of my shell.

In early-2014 I left my family’s $100 million business in order to pursue my goal of helping others achieve their dreams. Following in my family's footsteps I became a fourth generation business owner. Founding the Dreamer's Podcast in order to help others pursue their dreams in business has been an amazing experience.

Two Hundred and Eighty Episodes of the Dreamers Podcast, two books and countless memories later I have finally realized my dream of helping other business owners. These past three years have been filled with amazing interactions with visionaries of all backgrounds.

Along the way, I have consulted with business owners from around the world on how to better utilize their resources, both technological and human.

The Secrets of Meditation

March 31, 2017

The modern world comes with an incredible range of possibilities.

It also comes with challenges and, let’s not forget, with a wide selection of responsibilities.

Are we ready to face them all, to deal with them all? The fact is that this modern world is overwhelming and therefore, we tend to get tired, weak and stressed.

But is there a solution to all these effects of the modern world?

Undoubtedly, meditation is the one tool that can reduce best all these aspects of a busy, dynamic and active lifestyle.

A lifestyle that implies, besides all the successes and satisfactions, an additional package of worries and, of course, stress.
