Today's Life's Black Belt is Jeff Eisenberg. Jeff is the best selling author of "Fighting Buddha - Marital Arts, Buddhism, Kicking Ass and Saving it" as well as "Buddha's Bodyguard - How to Protect Your Inner V.I.P." He is currently working on his 3rd book which is due to be released next year. In addition to holding several Black Belts in a variety of marital arts, he is also a Brown Belt In Brazilian Jiujitsu under Professor Bill Scott of BJJ Shore Academy in Point Pleasant, NJ. In this conversation, we review Jeff's family life growing up. The impact that his father's style of parenting had on the child he was then and the man he has since become. How martial arts entered his life, as well as the study of Buddhism. Jeff and I discuss his philosophy on life and how he continually focuses on being grateful everyday. Jeff talks about how he ran a martial arts school that he eventually closed, how he got into becoming a bodyguard, private investigator and eventually a published author. We also discuss how life has continued to throw him curve balls, such as recently getting divorced and how his life studies have helped him to become a much stronger, more patient and wiser man. He echoes what this Podcast is all about. Navigating life is very similar to the journey towards Black Belt. Links below for more information. I hope you enjoy today's Life's Black Belt, Mr. Jeff Eisenberg.
