I'm so happy to welcome back Simon Majumdar, a favorite on Art of Living. We haven't seen him since January of last year, and it's been far too long.
No stranger to Food Network, Simon is a regular judge on Cutthroat Kitchen, Iron Chef America and The Next Iron Chef, although he didn't start out in the entertainment industry. When he was 40 years old, he quit his job as a book publisher and began a new mission: "Go Everywhere, Eat Everything." Today he's traveling the country doing research for his next television and book project — Fed, White and Blue — which will celebrate America's vast and diverse culinary landscape.
Simon Majumdar returns to Art of Living to talk about his busier-than-ever career, which now includes being a judge on the returning series, "Extreme Chef," premiering Thursday, August 16th at 10pm/9c on Food Network, plus upcoming stints on "Iron Chef," "The Next Iron Chef." and "Undercover Critics."

Simon Majumdar realized, at the age of 40, that there had to be more to life than the daily 9 to 5 grind he had lived the last twenty years of his life. His genuine mid-life crisis included the death of his mother, and stressful changes at work that caused him to quit his job and set out to fulfill his life's ambition: to go everywhere, eat everything. This adventure cost Simon most of his life savings, took him to 31 countries in a little over a year, and resulted in his critically-acclaimed book, "Eat My Globe." He also authored, "Eating For Britain," in 2010, is a contributor to the UK's "The Guardian," "The Independent," and "The Daily Mail;" also, "The Daily Beast," "Wexas Traveller Magazine," and www.AskMen.com. In 2008, Simon was voted by "The London Evening Standard" as one of the "1000 Most Influential People in London,: and in 2009, "GQ Magazine" chose his "Dos Hermanos" as one of the "100 Best Things In The World," calling it "Michelin-starred food blogging." Last year, "Esquire Magazine (UK)," called Simon and his brother's blog, "Dos Hermanos," the #1 UK blog that restaurants fear, and noted that it's "still one of the most widely-read, and best," and the UK Press Gazette voted Simon #20 on the "Top 50 Food and Drink Journalists." On television, Simon can be seen as a recurring guest judge on Food Network's "Iron Chef America," and has been seen on Food Network's "Next Iron Chef," -Seasons 3 & 4), "The Best Thing I Ever Ate," and as a recurring guest judge on "Extreme Chef." website: http://www.simonmajumdar.co.uk

Several years ago I came across information by Simon Sinek. He said that when people's WHY is big enough things change for the better (and sometimes the worse). On this show Simon shares "Start with Why." His speech was given a couple of years ago but the concepts are very important for all of us.
Simon Sinek says, "Do you know your Why? The purpose, cause, or belief that inspires you to do what you do. Simon Sinek's online Why Discovery course can help you learn and live your Why."
Imagine a world where people wake up every day inspired to go to work, feel safe while they are there, and return home at the end of the day feeling fulfilled by the work they do, feeling that they have contributed to something greater than themselves.
Described as “a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,” Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home everyday feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them.
Fascinated by the leaders and companies that make the greatest impact in their organizations and in the world, those with the capacity to inspire, he has discovered some remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate and the environments in which people operate at their natural best. He has devoted his life to sharing his thinking in order to help other leaders and organizations inspire action.

The series is Warriors & Watchmen and the first book is called Conspiracy Rising from the author, Simon Driscoll.
Simon Driscoll has been writing most of his life. Writing is his passion, as well as his hobby. He has been a student of the scriptures all his life, and feels passionately about helping others understand them better. The most difficult aspect of scriptures to comprehend is prophecy. That is why Simon has combined his passions for writing and the scriptures to create a fictional account of the fulfillment of End Times Prophecies. The first book in the Warrior and Watchmen Series was published in 2015.
Warriors & Watchmen is a mainstream thriller series based on End Times Prophecies and current events. The first book, Conspiracy Rising, follows the story of Bryan Benson, a man who loses everything in a suicide bombing. His path of revenge helps to set the world on fire, but who is really pulling all the strings?
The three Shumway brothers find themselves intimately involved in these world events, trying to figure out what happened, and how to stop the chaos from erupting into World war III.

SIMON GERVAIS was born in Montréal, Québec. He joined the Canadian military as an infantry officer and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1997. Assigned to the Infantry School in Gagetown, New Brunswick, he received extensive training in advanced reconnaissance and small-unit tactics.
In 2001, he became a federal agent. His first posting was in Toronto, where he served as a drug investigator. During this time, he worked on many international drug-related cases in close collaboration with his American colleagues from the DEA. However, in 2004, his career switched gears and he was placed with a federal anti-terrorism unit based in the Ottawa Region. During the following years, he was deployed in numerous European and Middle Eastern countries.
In 2009, he became a close-protection specialist tasked with guarding foreign heads of state visiting Canada. Among many others, he served on the protection details of Queen Elizabeth II, US President Barack Obama and Chinese President, Hu Jianto.
In 2012, Simon was transferred to his organization’s counter-surveillance unit. During the next two years, he participated in a number of intelligence gathering operations. In May 2014, he returned to his former unit to serve as a bodyguard for the American ambassador to Canada until his retirement in September 2014.
