About Your Host ​Brad Szollose

First things, first. How do you say Szollose? It’s pronounced zol-us. Like solace with a 'z.'

Brad is an award-winning business author, serial entrepreneur, web pioneer, former C-Level executive of a publicly traded company, creative director and TEDX Speaker.

From founding partner and CMO of K2  Design, Inc. the first Digital Agency to go public on NASDAQ to international leadership development expert, Brad Szollose has worked  with household names like MasterCard, American Management Association ​and Tony Robbins, to create leadership training programs for a new  generation.

After the release of his international bestselling book, Liquid Leadership, Brad was asked to be a guest and a host on hundreds of podcasts. This made him realize he wanted a different conversation...a deeper conversation. With executive producer Elizabeth Anne Hamilton, they launched Awakened Nation®.

​Brad interviews the next generation of idea makers, disruptors and the game-changers. You’ll hear from bestselling authors, professional athletes, activists, business professionals, rock stars, healers and others, who will share stories and the truths that will open your eyes.

After 35 years in NYC, Brad lives in the Southwest and the desert of Las Vegas.

What everyone is saying about Awakened Nation​...

​Leah Burdick
CGO Pride Industries

Unique Guests and Perspectives.

"Stumbled on this podcast, and I’m impressed by the unique guests & how Brad, the host, gets them to open up and share more insights than I’d expect. Brad seems more evolved than what one thinks of as a business person, and it makes for a richer interview.

Glad I found it, and it’s worth a listen for sure."

​​Christina Meade
​Nerdy Girl Success

​LOVE this Podcast!

​"I really enjoy the wide range of people and topics that Awakened Nation interviews. It’s enlightening and Brad’s interview style is one that makes it feel more like you’re listening to two friends having a conversation than a traditional interview."


​Derek Henig

Roaming Scholars

​Pink Floyd saves ​the day...

​"Excellent interviews. Brad does a great job letting the guest speak and share while also steering the conversation and keeping it fun. Looking forward to more!"


​Whitnie Wiley
Founder of 
Shifting Into

​I LOVED The Panache ​Desai episode...

"​...Listening to these two men discuss life, love, and being enough this morning was a huge gift and this will be one of those episodes that I come back to again and again.

Panache has so much wisdom and confirms the journey I’ve been on for the past few years."
