#042: A Book All Dreamers Need To Read
Our mission here is to inspire dreamers to become doers. The difference between the two is the fact that dreamers often get caught up in their own heads questioning and thinking about those dreams. The doers are the ones taking action to achieve it.
One of the biggest ways doers become the Uncommon Amongst The Uncommon is by how they handle resistance in their lives.
This book may just be the best book we have ever read about overcoming resistance in all aspects of your life.
Wanna know what book? Give it a listen.

#040: This Is Our Favorite Book Of The Year
Inspiration can come from anywhere. It is unique. It is personal. And it’s origins are sometimes unknown. However, when it hits, you have to run with it and see where it takes you.
A very big inspiration for us and the content we have created this year comes from Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey.
It has inspired us to think, question, act, laugh, and smile. We talk through a few of our favorite inspirations in this episode.
More than anything, we recommend you read the book yourself and then listen to it the second time around.
I love the content that is being provided, it’s real and it’s raw! Kaleb and Luke are quite the duo! They go into some very pressing and personal issues/ choices that they have encountered throughout their life and how they went about each situation. All and all they have made amazing content so far and I cannot wait to see what they have instore for the future to come. As Kaleb always says stay ready. #OGFY
A Friendship & Brotherhood Which Knows No Bounds!
Hearing Luke & Kaleb collaborate on the OGFY Podcast is a real treat to tune into. They maintain a well-oiled balance of perspective, experience, & wisdom that shines through in their “On Air” chemistry. Genuinely looking forward to hearing each new episode they share with the world, each with a unique lens through which they encourage you to “Go Find Yourself”.
An Absolute Godsend of a Podcast
Kaleb and Luke have unparalleled chemistry, the likes of iconic duos such as Cheech and Chong, Brad and Angelina (pre-divorce), and PB&J. Luke tosses the conversation back to Foss the way Brady sniped bullets to Edelman on a slant. Absolute conversational poetry, in a time where authentic dialogue has been eradicated by divisive internet platforms. If you’re not listening to this podcast, then you’re not the best version of yourself yet. Level up in the spheres of consciousness and intelligence, press play, and enjoy the thrill ride baby.
