    Leadership with Bob Chapman

    I imagine a world in which the vast majority of people wake up inspired, feel safe wherever they are, and end the day fulfilled by the work that they do. Bob Chapman, legendary CEO of manufacturing company Barry-Wehmiller, has done more than most other leaders to bring that vision to life. A mentor of mine, I asked him to share his thoughts on Leadership. This is… A Bit Of Optimism

    Hope with Curtis Martin

    Our nation is facing a challenge unlike it’s faced in decades. There’s anger, there’s fear, there’s exhaustion. This week I’ve reached out to friends to have necessary and uncomfortable conversations. One call was to my friend, NFL Hall Of Famer Curtis Martin, who sees the world and understands people in a remarkable way. We talked about the lessons he’s learned and the insights he has which I believe will help us navigate through this together. Because we have to go through it together. This is…. A Bit of Optimism.

    Relationships with Christina Tosi and Will Guidara

    The best way to learn more about what it takes to build a great relationship is to spend time with people who have a great relationship. That’s why I called my favorite couple - Christina Tosi, founder of Milk Bar, and Will Guidara, co-founder of Eleven Madison Park and the Welcome Conference. Everything the three of us talked about sparked new insights into what it means to have and build a great relationship. Take a listen and enjoy A Bit of Optimism.

Thank you for your words, your inspiration and for sharing your life. What you inspired your mother to do regarding your dad has also inspired me. As a single mom with 3 boys, whose father also left them, I realized it was a gift that he left and that my sons will be better men because of it. Grateful for the opportunity to hear your story.
