I’m super excited to launch my new talk show, Tola Talks, on LATalkRadio.com this coming Monday – that’s right, Labor Day – and broadcasting live weekdays at Noon on Channel 2.
Tola Talks is all about positivity and inspiring listeners with my 21st Century talk for a No Bullshit world. No topic is off limits, and just like my 30-episode podcast, Get Your S#!T Together: GYST with Rich Tola, I plan on entertaining listeners with my no bullshit style and candid conversations with today’s Celebrities & Business Leaders, Fitness & Yoga Professionals, Love & Relationship Experts, plus Movie Reviews and Live Performances from popular Musicians.
Our first week is filled with an awesome Guest list including Celebrity Psychic Jeanie Jacobs MacDonald, the lovely and talented Actress Troy Titus-Barrow (who also co-starred in Boulevard Zen), two amazing Yoginis, Linda Baffa and Jess Harper, Hollywood Photographer Jared Cowan, and LA Music Awards ‘Best Male Vocalist of the Year’ Erick Macek (from NBC’s ‘The Voice’).
So get ready for my next evolution from Podcaster to Radio Host on Internet’s most irreverent, entertaining and cool radio station that’s home to more than 80 talk shows a week with over 1,000,000 listeners a month. And like the LA Talk Radio tagline asserts…”We say what we want”.
Have a great Holiday weekend everyone, and I’ll see you on the radio! – R
I can’t tell you how many times I hear this phrase every week about how this guy or that gal used to be in great shape, or used to walk 5 miles with their dogs every morning, or used to bike to work every day, or used to eat healthy with their fruits and vegetables, or blah-blah-blah.
Like the forty-something year-old guy I met at the gym this morning who said, “I used to workout all the time and just last month I weighed 190, and now I weight 204.” That’s when I said, “The only thing that matters is your workout this morning and what you put in your mouth today – not what you used to do or even what you did yesterday. It just doesn’t matter.” Then I told him if he was really serious about taking care of himself, like he was – and did – in the past, he could easily get his weight below 200 pounds by Labor Day, and the rest by Halloween…or worst case Thanksgiving.
That’s right, because when it comes to health and fitness, whatever follows that infamous phrase, “I used to”, just doesn’t matter. You’ve got to be vigilant with yourself every day and not rest on your laurels of yester-year! Which is also par for the course when it comes to dating and even your net-worth (believe me, I know). What matters most is your positive attitude and self-respect and discipline today, i.e., live in the present and not the past.
So forgettabout the I used to’s and keep rockin’ it every day!
Enjoy – R
