Why do this?
I'm someone who loves to tell stories that I hope will inspire and educate others to find their reason for being. I basically invented the podcast I wish I had when I quit my corporate job and started my own business. I made a lot of mistakes and figured things out the hard way. I've been inspired by so many of my guests and I know you'll find a ton of value here as well.
I love the quote from Mark Twain: "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." My mission thru my video series, podcast, talks, book(s) etc. is to help people discover their purpose and find joy and fulfillment.
