Listen up if you want to be inspired and smash your excuses!

We all know that the journey to success is never easy.

It can be hard to find the motivation to keep going when you're struggling. You feel like you're the only one going through this and that no one understands what you're going through.

The underdog podcast is here to change that.

Kyle does an amazing job sharing the stories of people from all walks of life with their failures and successes.

Not only that, this is a space to connect with others who have been through similar struggles.

Our stories have the power to inspire others, so keep on sharing!
