Our guest… Katie O'Brien co-author (with The Great Hunter Maats) of the brand new book "The Straight A Conspiracy"
Katie = Amazing! I first heard Katie O'Brien speak on The Bryan Callen Podcast, where she caught the attention of my dyslexic brain...her energy is infectious - we talk about emotions, the way humans learn information, and the higher levels we can all strive to reach. Katie has both inspired and empowered me, and I'm sure she'll inspire you as well.

About The Outstanding Katie O' Brien: A native New Englander, Katie graduated first in her class from Pinkerton Academy, a New Hampshire regional public school of 3200 students, nestled in the most Norman Rockwell-y part of small-town America that you can imagine. She arrived at Harvard College in the fall of 2000 and majored in English and American Literature and Language, ultimately graduating magna cum laude. At Harvard, she also co-directed CityStep–a program that integrates arts education into the Cambridge public middle schools–and after graduating and moving to New York, she continued that work with high schoolers in NYC, Oxford, London, and Edinburgh. During this time, Katie also teamed up with Hunter and two other Harvard classmates to form Overqualified Tutoring, a NYC- and LA-based educational services company. She has spent thousands of hours tutoring and home-schooling students of all ages, and in all subject areas. Katie currently resides in Los Angeles…but still roots for the Red Sox from afar.
Even if you're not that into books and academia, you can absolutely benefit from this interview. It's not about just learning for a school situation, it's about understanding the processes of handling and retaining information. Katie has dedicated his energy to help empower people by shattering the stereotypes about learning abilities and intelligence, while teaching people that learning is actually "just a system" you can learn...
In this episode, we discuss dyslexia, motivation, arts, emotions and etc why Katie O'Brien

For the past 17 years I've made my career out of designing and teaching group fitness kickboxing classes. Many of my classes consist of up to 100 people, who range in fitness levels from beginner to advanced-- all in the same class. Obviously this exposed some challenges and hurdles that I needed to overcome in order to keep my classes at the highest quality possible.
