The Legendary Leaders Podcast

May 28, 2020


Are you an executive, entrepreneur, or a person actively engaging in being a productive commercial member of society? You probably need your mind to go into a peaceful quiet state to massively improve your courage and creativity.


Matthew Ferry wrote the book Quiet Life Epic Life to help entrepreneurs find their peace in whom they are without necessarily having to change their environment. He spent most of his younger life trying to chase that state of peace but couldn’t find it in money or drugs but only in quieting his mind.


Matthew believes that now more than ever, people are starting to recognize that all is well which is expanding their lifespans. Listen in to learn how Matthew handles emotional triggers and survival states brought about by family.

  • Why your mind is not your friend but rather an information machine.
