Exclusive – Frank Tassone’s reaction to HBO’s new film Bad Education
We all have something in our past we aren’t proud of– something we’d like to scrub from our history. Today, I teach forgiveness, because we all deserve a second chance. In this week’s podcast, I have the unique opportunity to speak with former school superintendent Frank Tassone about HBO’s new film “Bad Education.” The film, which aired on April 25, starring Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney, depicts a dark period in Frank’s life in which he admittedly embezzled over two million dollars from the Roslyn school district on Long Island. Frank has not spoken with any other media outlet because, from prior experience, his words have been twisted, taken out of context or edited to fit someone else’s narrative. In this interview, we allow Frank the freedom, with no strings attached, to comfortably voice his reaction to the film and even, set the record straight. I invite you to my second interview with Frank. At the end of this episode, I extend a special invitation to him to appear on my global Zoom empowerment group to help him heal and offer rare advice and insights to others. I hope you enjoy!

Exclusive: Frank Tassone, the true story behind HBO's "Bad Education”
This is one of the most intense interviews I’ve ever done. Meeting Frank Tassone is like meeting a character straight out of a movie—the quintessential three acts of a Martin Scorsese drama – a blue color kid makes good, destroys it all and then struggles to become whole again. Actually, this isn’t such a stretch. On April 25, Frank’s life becomes as public as it gets, when Emmy Award winner Hugh Jackman plays him in HBO’s “Bad Education.” The film depicts the rise and fall of a beloved man, whose distinguished career in education is lost to greed and arrogance. He is convicted and served time in jail for embezzling nearly $2 million dollars, but twenty years later, despite paying full restitution and losing his license to be an administrator, Frank doesn’t live a day without the guilt and shame of this transgression. What if your most regrettable sin became public? What if, after being released from prison, you still felt confined by unrelenting pain? What if, no matter how successful you were and despite all the good you did, your legacy boiled down to one singular moment?  I invite you to my exclusive interview with Frank Tassone, one of the most intricately complex and shockingly honest people I have ever met. At the end of this episode, I will share ideas with Frank on how to begin healing and release all his toxic feelings. While it’s rare to have a film made about your misdeeds, I hope this helps everyone who has ever experienced similar feelings.

Coach Mike: In the Midst of a Pandemic, Stories of Hope and Resilience
In today’s episode, I’m reaching out to people, who without fear, share their powerful stories of adversity and devastation and what positive steps they’ve taken to forge a path forward. With social distancing and isolation thrown into the mix, it’s added another layer to everyday challenges, making life even more difficult to navigate. I am wholly inspired by all my guests, but Troy left me in tears. Troy is 30 days sober and coping with indescribable grief after losing his husband just days ago.

EXCLUSIVE: Lauren O’Connor: On Standing Up to Harvey Weinstein and Reclaiming Our Voice
Today, I’m introducing you to the brave, young woman who wrote a memo to HR about Harvey Weinstein, exposing his abusive behavior and the sexual assault of another employee. Her memo would become the cornerstone of a New York Times article that began Weinstein’s freefall from Hollywood royalty to convicted criminal. Why did she do it? How did she do it? Lauren O’Connor was a 26 year-old with her dream job who had nothing to gain and everything to lose when she wrote that memo. She lost her job, her privacy and hundreds of thousands of dollars. But what she gained was a healing she never expected. For the first time, she opens up about her own sexual assault and how it impacted her decision to report one of the most powerful, famous men in the world. She shares the vulnerable moment her coworker showed up in her hotel room doorway sobbing and her reaction to the verdict of Weinstein’s trial. Lauren O’Connor is real, raw, and strong. Her story will empower you; she empowers me. Twitter/Instagram: @coachmikeshow Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
