He won the Inspirational Speaker of the Year, delivered 5 TEDx talks, and performed stand-up comedy on 3 continents and in 4 languages. Joze has since given talks at the United Nations Google, Tesla, Dell, TikTok, Deloitte, and BCG.

Effect on Emotions
- More mindfulness has allowed me to press the pause button and create space for myself between the stimulus and the response.
Thoughts on Breathing
- I use a breathing technique to control my stutter. On the other hand, I also practice different types of breathwork whether it is Wim Hof or conscious, connected breathing. In fact, I'll have to connect you with John Mensa who was a fantastic breathwork teacher. And, of course, traditional mindfulness meditation also incorporates a lot of mindful breathing.

- I wish mindfulness had been taught when I was in school. It would have made an enormous difference because I've lost count of the number of times I would go back home to my room, just feeling absolutely awful about what had happened at school. I felt belittled and I felt so small.
- So the way that mindfulness would have had a tremendous impact is by reminding me that I am not the feelings I'm having. I'm not the thoughts that I'm having. The mere fact that these are entities that I am having implies separation between the ‘I', and what is being felt and being experienced. Having that healthy ability to observe rather than identify and react would indeed have allowed me to feel what I needed to feel in a healthier way, as opposed to going for avoidance as my MO.
