    For this episode I had the privilege of speaking with retired U.S. Army Major and “expert on things going sideways“, Shelby Edwards. Shelby and I had a wonderful and, frankly fun conversation about how what she learned while in the military, the poetry of Mary Oliver, and dogs have been instrumental in not only helping her get through the difficult times, but also to strive to make the world a better place.

    EP 22 My Manifesto

    EP 22 My Manifesto

    A few years ago I read a blog post from writer Todd Henry (The Accidental Creative, Die Empty, Louder Than Words, and Herding Tigers) in which he talked about his manifesto, a list of the principals that guide him in life. In this episode I explain my own manifesto, which I created after reading that blog post. Tune in to hear me explore the principals behind who I want to be as a person, how I want to show up for those in my life, and how I want to make a difference in the world.
