It’s About To Go Down! With Marc & Cathey

It’s About to Go Down! with Marc & Cathey is a LIVE coaching show about dropping ideas. It’s podcast meets TED Talk meets talk show. Hosted by champion speaker and coach Marc Williams and TED coach and persuasion expert Cathey Armillas.

“What you resist, persists. Shift your relationship with an energy so that it may still exist but it does not hold power over you” – Yasmin Nguyen, joy ambassador and author of The Game of Joy. In this episode, Marc and Cathey talk with Yasmin about how to create moments of joy in your life. The conversation explores the process of breaking down the principles, defining key terms, and gamifying an idea. Then, they spoke about the power of adding levels to your idea from a version 1.0 to a version 4.0. How do you go from “doing joy” to “becoming joy”? By the end of this discussion, you will be able to identify what activates joy for you and what it will take for you to have a joyful day.

In this interview with Carol, Yasmin talks about some of the challenges he has faced, including fleeing communist Vietnam, being rescued at sea, growing up as an immigrant in America, his experience with corporate life, entrepreneurship, deep depression, and burnout. Yasmin has come up with 7 principles of joyful living that worked for him, and is excited to share them.

In 2022, he and his team will launch a new concept called “The Joy Gym” to reconnect millions of people every day as “Joy Makers” to practice simple habits that activate joy, strengthen their hearts and minds, and create a better world.
