What we give outwardly is as much a mirror of what we are inside. All of the things we do are influenced with the feelings and energy in us. Bestselling author and coach, Joe Nunziata greatly believes in this. His work revolves around combining philosophy, spirituality, psychology, and internal energy to help people move forward with their lives. He teaches how in successfully making permanent changes, we have to get rid of the negative energy and the destructive patterns of behavior in us. This way, we can transform into better versions of ourselves, therefore sustaining positive growth in all areas of our lives. Joe shares his own life experiences as well as some wisdom to those business owners trying to extend their hearts into their work, and ultimately leaving something positive for the greater good.

Removing Negative Energy To Sustain Positive Growth with Joe Nunziata
I have a very special guest, somebody that I am honored to call a friend and someone whom I know is going to bring a tremendous value here to Heartrepreneur Radio. His name is Joe Nunziata. Joe is a bestselling author, a spiritual life and business coach, and he’s a professional speaker. I’ve had him speak at an event of mine and he knocked everyone’s socks off. He has a book called Karma Buster and it was featured in the 2012 Academy Awards gift bags. He’s been delivering his life-changing message at events and at seminars since 1992. His enlightening programs are a unique blend of spirituality, psychology, philosophy, and the power of internal energy. What Joe teaches is that to make permanent changes, you must clear your negative energy and you must break destructive patterns of behavior at the core level. This transformational process creates new energy and beliefs designed to help you achieve sustained positive growth in all areas of your life.
He’s appeared on so many television and radio programs, from Good Day New York and Street Talk on Fox TV, Cablevision News 12, Better TV, The Braveheart Network, and many radio stations across the country and more. He has written many books. One of the books that made a huge impression on me and that I highly recommend you pick up is called Spiritual Selling. He also has Finding Your Purpose and No More 9 to 5. Joe has all kinds of programs: Change Your Energy Change Your Life, No More Mental Barriers, Connecting To Your Spirit and The 7 Keys to Transformation. My friend, Joe Nunziata, welcome to Heartrepreneur Radio.
Terri, thank you so much.
I know you’re busy. I know there’s so much going on in your business life and your professional life and I want to thank you. You’re such a Heartrepreneur yourself. Why do you do what you do? You can do a million different things knowing who you are. Why did you pick what it is that you do? How do you impact people? Why do you write the books that you write?
To me, it was an evolution. I didn’t start off doing this. I started off doing business work. Showing people how to start home businesses was one of the first things I did when I was a sales and marketing guy for a long time. That was where my expertise was. Later, I started getting into energy work and spiritual work, and then I started to realize that all this stuff that I’m teaching is valuable, and it was great information to help people in their careers and move their lives forward personally as well. I realized that underneath all this stuff was much more powerful work, which was about helping people shift energetically at a core level and changing their lives in a positive way. I started to move in that direction and the work was so beneficial to me. I love to help other people make these changes and move their lives forward. We all have these internal things that drive us forward. It’s one of those things that I’ve always loved, helping people and teaching people and see people grow and move forward. It’s just an internal gut thing. I don’t know how else to describe it.
What is the most important thing for you in terms of your mission and your core values? What is it that sets you up every day to wake up and do what you do?
The bottom line is we’re in a world that’s very disruptive and most people are in pain as I was for a long period of time. It’s one of those things where you say, “If I can help somebody get out of that pain that I know I experienced myself and knowing when that person heals, they start to heal other people around them.” They start to create this positive shift that we really are looking for in this planet and in this universe. It’s almost like it’s a mission, it’s not work. It’s something that I get up every day and say, “Wow.” It doesn’t even have to be working with a client or at a seminar or reading a book. I could be in a supermarket and see somebody. I could talk to somebody for a minute or bump into a person on the cashier and have a small exchange of energy with them that I know on some level will help them. To me, it’s the way I’ve lived my life now. It’s something that we have to look towards within ourselves to say, “Am I out there every day making the world better and being a positive impact?” We all need to take that responsibility if we’re going to see the world that we all want to live in.We all have internal things that drive us forward.

I came up with the term Heartrepreneur to describe people who do business because they have a deep mission and a deep purpose, and they want to connect with people from a heart level. I’m curious if that resonates with what you think and how that lands for you.
That’s very interesting because it’s aligned with when I wrote the Spiritual Selling book. I’ve been in sales for a long period of time. What I found interesting was there were a lot of people in the business world and the sales world who were not concerned about anything but money. A lot of those people were successful. I said, “That’s interesting, these people are doing this and they’re very successful.” For me personally, I couldn’t do it if I did not feel aligned and did not feel like this is something that I wanted to sell and felt good about. That’s the difference. We come out of a capitalist system that what you’re describing is a very different way of operating your life especially in a business world to say, “I also want people to understand.” The money is part of it because you have to generate revenue and you have to keep the company going.
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes there are tough decisions, but the idea behind it is understanding what you’re doing is not just about dollars and cents and to say, “What is my big picture? How does this business, this company, this product or service, make the world better and of course, I also benefit myself?” This is something we want to understand. There are some people who like yourself or like me, says it’s very important. There are other people who say it’s not very important. I don’t judge them, it’s what they do, but for me, for you, for those of us who are in this alignment, it’s very important.
For somebody who is a business owner, who wants to sell with heart, who wants to connect with heart, what are a couple pieces of wisdom that you’d like to drop on them?
The first thing is I always think about the greater good. The idea is whatever you’re doing, what you are doing is for the greater good, not just for your good, but the greater good of yourself, your customers, the clients, and the whole world. It’s always looking at it from that position in a much wider scope. We get caught up in what we’re doing and one little thing in our day-to-day. It’s important to look at this in a bigger picture.
The second thing that is very important is to assess where your ego is in your game. If this whole thing for you is very ego-driven, where you want to have a certain title, you want people to see you in a certain way or you need a certain car to drive around, whatever it is, then you know you’re drifting into a place that is not a heart space. You’re drifting into an egoic space. That is a critical element if you’re going to go forward in staying in this area. It is to say, “I have to let the ego go, focus on the greater good and let all that stuff move over.”Think about the greater good. Click To Tweet
I am encouraging all the Heartrepreneurs to breathe that in and take that in. It’s a marvelous piece of advice. What do you see will happen in the world of business and industry in the next five years? What are your expectations of what’s going to happen in an interesting world that we have right now?
2008, to me, was the precursor for the changes that are taking place. Unfortunately, on some level, when we bailed out the banks and those financial institutions, I felt like all we did was prolong the agony. It’s interesting what we have now happening with the new president because what’s happening whether you like him or not, I don’t judge that. To me, it is what it is. It’s an interesting thing energetically for me. I don’t look at it if he’s good or bad, right or wrong, but he is definitely in there shaking up the system that we have in place. Whether you like it or not, he is definitely doing things from an energetic perspective that says, “This system is broken and I’m going to do everything I can to rip it up.”
How it all shakes out, we don’t know. Basically, what happened in 2008, there were no ramifications. All these guys got their money. They got their bonuses. They went on with their lives, so that situation has not changed. We are going to see a big shift, I believe in the next five, ten years where business starts going away from the model of the capitalist system that we grew up in where we looked at people like Vanderbilt, Carnegie and Rockefeller. They built businesses on the backs of other people and in some cases were very cruel and harsh to those people, which is what created unions and things like that. The idea of this pyramid that we have, it’s an inverted pyramid where all the money is at the top with a few people and as you go, it gets bigger at the bottom, but it goes the wrong way.
We need to be more balanced. When you look at historically what has happened to empires and the United States to me is the current empire, every empire has collapsed from within because of greed and ego. Our country, the United States, for those of us in the United States, we’re on that path and that’s going to happen. Can we come out of it better in a more balanced, spiritually-based, or energetically-based society? We will, but it’s going to be a bumpy ride. That’s how I see it. Anytime you go through a big change like this, which has been going on for thousands and thousands of years and we’re going to a very different energy and very different vibration now, it’s going to be bumpy. For those of us who are like, “I’m ready for this,” we’ll be okay. The people who try to hold on to that old idea, they’re going to be in trouble.
I go to Facebook every day. I’m very active on Facebook and it’s been part of my business, the conversations, the anger, and the hatred go on, even the #notmypresident. Whether you like it or not, he is the president. It doesn’t matter to me if you like it or don’t like it. It’s been interesting to watch all of the energy and all of the time that is spent on all of this. I had a conversation with you and I want to thank you and acknowledge you because it also helped me shift.
I was starting to engage in these conversations because everybody else was in them and I was getting caught up and then I thought, “It is what it is. That’s another disruptor that’s happening in society. I’m going to just move with more ease and grace, flow through it, and deal with it.” It is what it is. I have to say, Joe, every time you and I have had a conversation over the many years I’ve known you, I’ve come away with something, even if it is subtle, that has shifted me personally and professionally. How can people reach out and get in touch with you? What actions should they take to get to know you better?
My main site is JoeNunz.com. They can go in there and see everything that I’m doing. I have a great book that I wrote a couple of years ago. I gave it away for free and everybody told me that I was insane. It was something that I wrote right around the time after the financial crash that next year because people were scrambling and so upset. It’s called Finding Your Purpose. People can go to FindingYourPurpose.com and download that book for free. The book is relevant. It’s one of those books that’s an evergreen book that you could read it at any point in your life. As we’re going through all these changes and transitions, it will help people out. That will be something that will give them a perspective. Maybe they’re in the middle of something or they’re on the right path. It will give them a different perspective.
I’m going to encourage all my Heartrepreneur audience to do that and to pay attention to this interview. I consider Joe a very special friend with lots and lots of wisdom. He can definitely help you, shift you, and make transformations with you. Go ahead and do that. Joe, I want to thank you personally for coming, for giving us some of your most valuable time and creating so much value for the audience here at Heartrepreneur Radio.
It’s always a pleasure to be with you and to help spread the good word. Anytime I can do it, I’m happy to do it.

About Joe Nunziata
Joe Nunziata is a best-selling author, spiritual life and business coach, and professional speaker who teaches that to make permanent changes you must clear your negative energy and break destructive patterns of behavior at the core level. The transformational process that Joe developed enables people to create new energy and beliefs designed to achieve sustained, positive growth in all areas of life.
Since 1992, Joe has been delivering his life-changing message at events and seminars. His programs blend spirituality, psychology, philosophy and the power of internal energy. He has appeared on many television and radio programs including Good Day New York and Street Talk on Fox TV, Cablevision News 12, Gaiam TV, Better TV, The Braveheart Network and various radio stations across the country. His new radio show, A Shot of Joe, will debut in October of 2017 on the Transformation Network.
Joe’s work led him to author several books, including: the soon to be released Chasing Your Life, Karma Buster, Spiritual Selling, Finding Your Purpose and No More 9 to 5. He has created many audio, video and written programs including: Change Your Energy/Change Your Life, No More Mental Barriers, Connecting to Your Spirit and The 7 Keys to Transformation.
The career that Joe has created for himself is not something most would expect from a Brooklyn-born son of a New York police detective and conservatively thinking mother. After losing his father at the age 12, Joe felt he had to become the man of the family, so he got into sales at an early age. Although he achieved some financial success, he saw that he was repeating some of the same self-sabotaging patterns. He explored many of the most popular success models and found that most of them focused primarily on thoughts and actions. Joe discovered that until the underlying emotions are addressed, changes to thoughts and actions only deliver temporary changes. This led Joe to continue searching and studying, until he eventually created a process that helps people identify their unresolved emotions and then clear the negative energy at the core level. It is this process that he began sharing in 2004 and continues to refine and expand upon today.
Joe now helps all types of people, from executives and entrepreneurs, to stay-at-home mothers, to “dissolve” the emotions and beliefs that stand between them and the achievement of their desires. He is continuing to spread his message throughout the world through speaking engagements, media appearances and his books and products.
You change your life when you are willing to uncover and face your negative feelings and beliefs.
