Cesar Millan

Train Confidence & Become the Leader of the Pack

I have loved dogs for as long as I can remember.

I grew up with them.

My sister had one who kept me company while I lived on her couch.

My heart melts every time I see a puppy.

But I’ve never owned one all by myself. I think I’d just play with it all day and never get anything done.

So of course I’ve been aware of today’s guest, known as The Dog Whisperer, for years.

I’ve followed Cesar Millan‘s TV shows and public persona and been fascinated by how he leads all kinds of dogs to better behavior.

But even more amazing to me is how he re-trains their owners into being the true leader of the dog.

“You have to become a great follower before a great leader.”  

When I heard he had a new book and show coming out, I knew it was my chance to get him on The School of Greatness.

I loved every second of our interview (even when we weren’t talking about dogs) and was hanging on every word Cesar told me.

Not only did he amaze me with his story of immigrating into the U.S. from Mexico as a young man with no money and no English language, but he taught me some powerful wisdom about ego, relationships, leadership, and of course, dogs.

I have been really excited to share this episode with you and can’t wait to have Cesar back on.
