Dr. Wayne Hayes is a NASA scientist, entrepreneur, idea-seeker, and he's the creator of the Cold Shoulder Calorie Burning Vest. He currently teaches at University of California Irvine when he's not appearing on news outlets all over the world featuring the vest.
He & his vest have been featured on Dr. Oz, Men's Fitness, Men's Health, Science Daily, The Atlantic, Shape, CNet, The Telegraph, and more.
We talk about the science behind the vest (that goes back to the 1800's), why it seems like snake oil, common sense that's not so common, global warming, his ill-timed entrepreneurial start in 2008, and a lot more.
I love this vest because it's an idea that's so brilliantly simple, but is devilishly complex in execution. Many thanks to Dr. Hayes for putting the time into making it a reality.

We are all broadcasters. We are constantly broadcasting information to others, even if we don’t say a word. Managers broadcast to their teams during meetings. Team members broadcast to clients. Clients broadcast to potential clients. And the messages we choose to broadcast shape others’ views of the world.
Our words can move other people from a fear-based mindset in which they see obstacles as insurmountable, to a positive mindset where they see that change is possible, get unstuck, and take action. What makes the difference is what we choose to broadcast. Using scientifically proven communication strategies to ripple out positive change to others, we increase their happiness and success at work, as well as our own, instantly making us more effective leaders.
We cover how to deal with negative people, how to practice gratitude, how happiness influences others, and a lot more. This is packed with practical advice that you can use to change your life, and the lives of the people you meet.
