    Facing the Boogerman and Other Life Updates

    Facing the Boogerman and Other Life Updates

    In this special episode, I open up about the whirlwind of 2023 and why my podcast has seen fewer episodes this year. Life has been a series of unexpected turns, and I want to share the importance of taking a break to reorganize and find clarity. Sometimes, stepping back is the most valuable move we can make to propel forward.
    Join me as I recap my entrepreneurial journey over the past year. It's been a rollercoaster, filled with highs and lows, successes and setbacks. I delve into the adventures—and misadventures—of becoming a rideshare driver, a path that taught me more than I could have imagined about resilience, adaptability, and the stark realities of the gig economy.
    A significant wake-up call came with the realization of the dangers associated with rideshare driving. It’s a world that demands caution and constant vigilance. These experiences have not only shaped my perspective but also fueled my passion for my next big adventure: becoming a voiceover artist and audiobook narrator.
    In this episode, I aim to encourage you, my listeners, to embrace the unpredictability of life and the value of reinvention. Each challenge is an opportunity for growth, and every detour can lead to new, exciting paths.
    I also invite you to explore my past podcast episodes, where I've shared insights and stories to inspire you to create a life worth living. And don't forget to check out my book, Beyond the Rut: Create a Life Worth Living in Your Faith, Family, and Career, available now on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in both eBook and paperback formats. Your support means the world to me, and I look forward to embarking on this new chapter together.
    Tune in, stay inspired, and let's continue this journey of growth and discovery!

All-Around Good

I haven’t listened to too many episodes but just from what I have, the host has revealed himself as a caring and genuine guy. When he shared the poem to honor his cousin passing away, it really showed who he is, and I have a lot of respect for him. His advice is great too!

Great content

Great info, great podcast. Love to hear what this guy has to say about getting back on your feet. Especially the mindset stuff, which keeps us from acting. Addressing that is key.
