Frank Gjata is a writer, transformational coach, filmmaker, social entrepreneur and bad ass manifester.

He is on a mission to raise consciousness around the world in a fun, lighthearted…and sometimes, even quirky way. He is dedicated to creating innovative tools that support people (including himself) to wake up, live consciously, and enthusiastically love the life we live.

To that end, Frank created, and six other websites, that feature unique tools, articles, and services for the purpose of igniting transformational, life-changing shifts in the moment. Frank not only provides inspiration for the heart and soul, but also the skin. He is the founder of Conscious Ink (, the first-ever company to utilize temporary tattoos as empowering reminders to support adults on their personal journey.

In 2017, Frank wrote, directed, and performed in a short film called “The Great Dictator Returns”, a bold remake of Charlie Chaplin’s famous inspirational speech from the Academy Award winning film “The Great Dictator”. An adapted version of Frank’s short film for Facebook currently has over 400,000 views.

In this episode you will hear how Jon Paul grew up in the "Irish" part of Boston. How he was stabbed in the head, struggled with alcohol and drugs, and lost all his hair. Finally a stripper (his roommate) convinced him that he needed help. Jon Paul began to turn his life around - and discovered how learning to breathe - was a cornerstone to a new life. Eventually his friend Matthew Perry said that he needed to teach his techniques to the world.

Originally from Boston, in his early 20’s, Jon Paul moved to Los Angeles and quickly became one of the most sought after Celebrity Trainers and Sober Coaches in the Country. Unexpectedly, he found himself in a breathwork class and had a massive transformation that first time.
