You hear his voice on the radio and his music everywhere.
He has earned six music Emmys, four gold albums and two Grammy nominations — not bad for a guy who started as a newscaster.
He became famous as host of “Entertainment Tonight,” but John Tesh has left the tabloid, gossip-fueled ways of Hollywood behind. Instead, with his books and radio show he wants to help you find your purpose in life.
John explains how he evolved from an awkward, gangly teen with crippling stage fright to someone who has a “lust for risks,”
He said we now live in a world where we can create purposeful, meaningful lives for ourselves, we just have to be willing to take some risks.
One of the keys he’s found is finding a way to drown out the critics, whether they’re our parents, teachers or unsupportive and negative boyfriends, girlfriends or spouses.
John took a big risk in her professional life his radio show, Intelligence for Your Life. He said everybody turned them down when he was first pitching the idea. So he took matters into his own hands — installing a satellite on his roof and broadcasting from home with a very small team.
After not making money for three years, the show now airs on more than 400 stations across the country.
He explains how the entire show was inspired by his wife of more than 20 years, Connie Sellecca.
John also talks about his old job at ET and why he now bans shows like that and tabloid magazines from his home. He has advice for parents with young children, particularly daughters, and how he works to emphasize positive influences in 16-year-old daughter’s life.
