Great For Your Show: Discover The 3 Ways To Overcome Life Altering Adversity – From Upcoming Author Michael Tranmer


Dear Show Host,

What do you do when life suddenly changes direction and you hit rock bottom? Michael Tranmer had to figure this out the hard way, when his marriage of six years came to a surprising end. In an instant, his comfortable life, with a stable engineering job and a condo in the city, lost all meaning. The weight of the grief immediately triggered an awakening of consciousness deep within his soul. The trauma from the breakup led to a series of realizations and the ultimate question: Who am I?

To find his answer, Michael began a journey inward to re-engineer his life. As he ventured deeper within, he learned some hard truths about his personality that he didn’t want to carry forward. At the same time, Michael began to experience moments of true bliss as he learned to live fully present in the moment.

In his #1 International Bestselling memoir, satori ananda – awaken to happiness, Michael Tranmer fearlessly shares his transformational story from caged and heartbroken, to self aware and fully expressed. His journey of self discovery includes life lessons embedded within extreme skiing and surfing adventures. On his journey, Michael discovers the one thing that will ultimately awaken himself, and others, to lasting happiness.

An interview with Michael Tranmer will inspire your listeners to take full ownership for all aspects of their lives. Your listener’s can look forward to learning the 3 Ways (3 C’s) that helped Michael overcome his life changing adversity:

  • The Commitment to pick yourself up out of Rock Bottom (no one is coming to save you)

  • Clarity on what new life you want to create

  • The Courage to fearlessly pursue your new dreams


Given the dramatic shifts in consciousness currently happening on a global scale, Michael’s story of his personal awakening is perfectly timed to guide others. On your show, Michael will distill the discomfort and unknowns embedded within his awakening experience to help support others going through similar experiences. Massive uncertainty, big life changes, facing the unknown, being faced with a blank slate, rebuilding oneself, none of it is easy. Michael will share, with reference to his upcoming book, the wisdom to help your listeners move courageously into the light.

Michael is an experienced podcast guest (and host of the Wake up Podcast) and has appeared on dozens of podcasts.
