Once a high-powered executive and in-demand consultant who graced the covers of Latin Business, Cypen and Color Magazines, Daniel Gutierrez realized that there was more to success than a 7-figure earning potential. He had to rediscover the young farmer boy with shamanic gifts so that he could return to the corporate landscape and awaken people's purposes beyond their cubicles as a motivational speaker and healer. Today we share:
How we bond in our brokenness
Creating our own realities beyond the four walls of our careers and minds
The importance of following your heart (and working through money blocks along the way)
Releasing his new book, "Radical Mindfulness"

“As human beings, we bond in our brokenness. We bond with those people that are similar to us not through words or through our physical being, but through that understanding that I have felt and been there to.”
“People get stuck in the four walls of reality because they believe it’s real.”
“Whether you’re able to travel or not, we have the capacity of creating our own reality through our own thoughts. Everything that we could possibly desire is at the fingertips of our awareness. The goal is to expand our awareness in order to bring in the reality that we choose to live in. If you see yourself in a cubicle, it is so. But it is also so that if your cubicle is transmuted and transformed into a place of luxury, it is also that too.”
“Radical mindfulness is important because entrepreneurs live very quickly, they make decisions quickly, they like living on the edge sometimes because we believe in our dream.”
“At some point in my career, people would tell me, ‘It must be fun. You must have been fed with a silver spoon.’ I said, shit. I didn’t even have a spoon. We had tortillas!” My mom worked in the fields and later as a seamstress, and my dad was as sheep herder. Humble beginnings. All I saw was struggle growing up.”
“I used to go to a place called the Nana Grill in Dallas. I would have the pianist play me “New York, New York” and i would envision myself in New York in a big high rise, and one day i was there. One day I was looking down going ‘this is what i used to dream about…’ and then life throws me a curveball and says, ok so now you’ve graduated from that. Who the hell are you?”

Once a high-powered executive and in-demand consultant who graced the covers of Latin Business, Cypen and Color Magazines, Daniel Gutierrez realized that there was more to success than a 7-figure earning potential. As President of PRIMER, a prestigious national leadership organization and an advisor to the Department of White House Personnel for the Obama Administration, Daniel was a highly regarded and deeply revered leader. Though Daniel was listed as one of the “Top 100 Hispanics in America” along Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, actor Edward James Olmos, and CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, something was still missing.
To find fulfillment, Daniel decided to dedicate the next chapter of his life to becoming a Master of Mindfulness. During the past 10 years he has led quests to the heights of the Machu Picchu, the depths of the Amazon and the top of the Himalayas. After the boardroom, now Daniel has been guiding entrepreneurs and experts in deep dive mindfulness immersions. Though mindfulness is a lifelong practice, Daniel has become known for giving lifealtering strategies in as little as 60 seconds. When facing extreme pressure, executives go from high-strung to highly productive. Daniel has even turned Wall Street cubicles from a place of stress to pads of serenity.
A beloved mentor and sought-after motivational speaker, Daniel was featured in the documentary Luminous World Views as one of eighteen world-renowned transformational thought-leaders. He is a bestselling author, who is excited to release his fifth book, Radical Mindfulness.
