    Reconnect With A Friend And Good Things Will Happen

    Cal asks you to reach out to an old friend you haven’t connected with in a while because something good is sure to happen.

Cal’s gift telling stories and he shares that with the world

Listening to Cal you can’t help but recognize that he’s fascinated by people. He’s genuine and sincere. He loves to find what makes a person unique. Then, he’s able to communicate that in a way that is almost ethereal. I find myself being transported and being able to see the stories and interviews in my mind’s eye. It’s a very rare gift that he so generously shares with the world. Listen to a few episodes and subscribe!
