Today we’ll be interviewing Michael Samuel’s the uber best-selling author of Just Ask the Universe, the Universeity, and Keep Calm and Ask On.

It’s actually his second time on the show. The first time was day one of the show, launch day, talking about Harnessing the law of attraction, and yes, it works! Our show has absolutely taken off and gone viral with thousands of listeners now in 101 countries and counting.

So now we wanted to have him back on and talk about Keeping Calm and Asking On.
So while they’re be the obligatory celebratory hi-fives for our progress and the show taking off, plus a woo hoo or too, I want to spend a bit of today talking about the tough stuff as well.

I want to talk about having faith in the Law of Attraction, about what to do when the chips are down, and most importantly, how to get out of our own way, stop blocking the flow and to allow the success, abundance, and happiness we deserve to come rushing on in.

In short, I want to talk about finding outrageous success, EVEN if we don’t believe it’s possible. Well, if that’s even possible.
