Refreshing conversations with inspiring people.

Welcome to the Begin the Begin Podcast. I'm Jeff Hilimire, a husband, father, entrepreneur, and author. I created this podcast to talk to people that inspire me, either because they've accomplished great things or done a lot of good in the world - or more likely, a combination of both. My goal is to learn people's origin stories, really dig into what makes them tick, and understand their secrets to success.

    Barefoot Ted on running, health, and leading a purposeful life

    Barefoot Ted on running, health, and leading a purposeful life

    On this episode, I get to talk to a legend in the running world: Barefoot Ted. I first learned about him through the book, Born to Run, by Chris McDougall, which fundamentally changed the way I run and, more importantly, completely removed the persistent knee pain that used to accompany my runs. He’s probably one of the most energetic people I’ve ever had on the podcast and hearing his journey is bound to inspire you.

    Bonnie Wan and The Life Brief

    Bonnie Wan and The Life Brief

    On this episode, I’m joined by Bonnie Wan, an incredible leader who created a brilliant concept called, The Life Brief, which helps people live with greater clarity, creativity, and courage by teaching them how to write briefs for their lives. We dive deep into how she created The Life Brief and its major components, but we also spend time talking about her life as an Asian immigrant in the United States and my experiences with having adopted two Chinese children. I just loved this conversation with Bonnie and I know you’ll find it inspiring.
