Podcast with Jack Canfield


I got to hang out with Jack Canfield back in September, 2020-style on Zoom. He’s the co-creator of the legendary series “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and of “Success Principles.”

We talked about an awful lot of Bear-related things, including the success cases we have in the community and the popularity of the book “Half My Size with The Ridiculously Big Salad” (and its nearly breaking the U.S. Post Office). He took a look at the manuscript for the new Eat Like a Bear Jump Start book as well. His assessment? He likes the Ridiculously Big Salad book and he likes the Jump Start book even better.

Check out the interview. (And, yes, I agree. We should have a lot less in this podcast of me and a lot more of Jack Canfield but such is the format and we’ve all got to play the hand we were dealt and all that….)

Below the interview, explore some of our success cases and that post office story.

The Ridiculously Big Salad in the News!
