    Vulnerability with Brigadier General Michael “Johnny Bravo” Drowley

    Vulnerability with Brigadier General Michael “Johnny Bravo” Drowley

    If you ask people in the military what makes them willing to sacrifice themselves for each other, the answer may surprise you. It’s not God or country… it's LOVE. In business we have colleagues and co-workers, in the military, they have brothers and sisters. Bonds like that inspire people to do remarkable things for each other. I sat down with Brigadier General Michael “Johnny Bravo” Drowley, to understand what it takes to build a bond of love on a team. This is… A Bit of Optimism.

    Faith with Quilen Blackwell

    Faith with Quilen Blackwell

    Occasionally I get to meet someone whose story absolutely inspires me. Quilen Blackwell is that person. He was on the path set for him - good grades, good college, good job - but he decided to follow his own path and his journey was filled with far more difficulty than he imagined. Only through faith, conviction and the generosity of strangers was he able to rise up and become the successful social entrepreneur he is today - serving the community that took care of him. This is… A Bit of Optimism

Simon and Brene together- amazing

I could see the two of you joining forces on a Netflix special and tour together in the future. Great insights

More than a little bit

I wanted to try this podcast bc I really like a lot of what Simon Sinek has to say as well as the questions he asks. I love it. What I did not expect (and what has never happened so consistently with any other podcast I’ve listened to) is that I would be so enamored of his guests. Pretty much every time I listen I immediately have to learn more about the interviewee and buy their book. This is one of the best podcasts content-wise and is truly special. It’s positive, provocative and full of hope.
