If you are a leader or an entrepreneur this podcast will speak to you (well, I guess that's the point). These are stories of amazing people with the courage to lead and often admit they were wrong and challenge long-held beliefs to make change. Many of these everyday heroes have evolved into leaders and entrepreneurs, and most of their stories have never been heard, until now. Pete Durand interviews people from all walks of life - the military, finance, business, sports, government and education. We learn from their challenges, pitfalls, lessons and how, by eating crow, how they used an open mind to adjust their way of thinking and lead others, including their families. Pete adds his own experiences as a husband, father and entrepreneur in this meaningful if not hilarious podcast.

    Episode 44: Guy and Jane Harvey

    Episode 44: Guy and Jane Harvey

    Guy and Jane Harvey are a super couple.
    Their story floored me and I consider it an honor to know them.
    Guy had a stroke in 2016 - how it happened is unique, he was a fit dude.
    What happened after is the stuff of legend.
    Jane, his girlfriend at the time, stepped in, and up. We all need a Jane in our lives.
    While Guy's stroke is a big part of their story. His recovery journey and their marriage are the main event.
    Guy works hard, he's dedicated, but Jane is the engine that keeps this marriage running. She's the rare combination of passion, love, compassion and determination. These two are not to be underestimated.
    They now run JGH Rehab. Notice that it's Jane Guy Harvey Rehab. Jane's name is first, for a darn good reason.
    Their goal: to help others recover from the debilitating effects of a stroke.
    It's brutally hard work. It takes a long time. And it takes the right mindset in the survivor and the caregiver(s).
    If you need a bit of inspiration or life perspective - this one's for you.

    Episode 43: Sonnie Linebarger

    Episode 43: Sonnie Linebarger

    Sonnie Linebarger is intimidating...
    ...in a subtle "I eat nails for breakfast" sort of way.
    I've been following Sonnie for some time and when she agreed to be on the show I had an idea of where I wanted to take the episode...I was wrong.
    Sonnie is complex - wife, mother, seasoned and successful business executive.
    She's also a life-long learner.
    This really stayed with me during the episode - she's obsessed with, well, evoking greatness - first in herself, then others.
    She's registered nurse (in a PICU none-the-less, I've seen that first hand...wow) and spent years leading a hospice and palliative care organization.
    That's next-level compassion.
    Sonnie just left her corporate gig and is now out on her own, evoking leadership greatness.
    Sonnie is one of the sharpest people I've interviewed (that's a high bar).
    She's also a supermom and now an entrepreneur.
    Stay tuned.

    Episode 42: Chris Grainger

    Chris Grainger is on a mission.
    It's no ordinary mission.
    Chris is a fisher of men.
    Chris is also a husband, a father, an employee and a 2x podcast host.
    Chris has dealt with loss, the kind of loss most people can't relate to. Seriously, we just can't.
    Chris and his wife turned it into a mission - how to help other parents deal with loss and the grief it brings.
    Often this grief spirals into despair, poor choices and a dark path.
    Chris created The Lion Within Podcast to help men face and conquer the demons that can distract them from being men of God, husbands and fathers.
    In a short time this podcast has attracted a following and more important, followers.
    He's extremely soft-spoken, but like EF Hutton, when he talks, you should listen (Google that :-)).

    Episode 41: Tony Albrecht

    Episode 41: Tony Albrecht

    Tony Albrecht has seen things.
    Things most people will never witness.
    His path has been a winding journey through self-doubt, insecurity, destructiveness, self-centeredness and ultimately, a spiritual awakening.
    Tony is also one of the most intriguing people I've met (and considering this show's premise, that's saying something).
    He's raw.
    He's still paving HIS path.
    He's becoming an amazing husband and father (note, it's an evolving process, with no deadline).
    I connected with Tony's writing instantly. He was gracious enough to share his journey and lessons.
    I hope to be with Tony on the remainder of his journey. When you encounter people who are deep and have so much to offer, you make it a priority to build a friendship and to continue to learn and be challenged by their approach to life.
    Key Takeaways for Leaders and Entrepreneurs:
    Sabbaticals have meritReading is fundamentalMany battles win the warTony is a quiet leader. He has "it", the thing people are drawn to in any situation. In his youth he let this power consume him. Now he's harnessed it, using it for good.
    Leaders can benefit from his thoughtful approach to words, actions and observation. He battles the resistance one-day-at-a-time.
    Tony's Eating Crow Moments:
    You hit rock bottom the moment you stop diggingFacing reality - owning his journeyTough conversations with his parentsAdopting the 12-steps in AA, and working them, embracing the spiritual awakening.You can find Tony here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tony-albrecht-92457213b/

    Episode 40: Gav Gillibrand

    Episode 40: Gav Gillibrand

    Gav Gillibrand is my spirit animal...with bigger balls.
    I have been chasing him as a guest for a year.
    Some of you may know, I started a fitness company in 2009 to help people live healthier lives. At the time, LinkedIn was early, video wasn't a medium on the platform and Instagram was on the rise. I should have been active on both, screaming from the rooftops about how I felt about exercise and eating right, and the simple truths about weight loss.
    I just didn't have the balls to be vocal, I was afraid it would offend my business clients. Damn.
    Gav does have the balls. He tells it like it is, it's unapologetically necessary - and refreshing.
    Gav's journey to fitness champion is unusual.
    His journey gave him the first hand experience and knowledge to speak with authority.
    I've yet to encounter another influencer who speaks more directly, accurately and simply.
    Some people don't want to hear it. They want an excuse. They want a pill.
    Gav is brutally honest. The science is simple. Willpower and deeply emotional issues are not.
    Yet, because the science is simple, there is hope.
    Gav walks us through his journey, his approach and how he found his voice.
    And thank goodness he did.
    Oh, there will be a Part Two to this episode, we haven't even scratched the surface.
    Male stripper. Need to dig into that.
    Enjoy.

    Episode 39: Matt Blakely

    Something completely out of Matt Blakely's control became a big break for his early stage company.
    Becoming a control freak almost ruined it.
    Fortunately, Matt woke up and realized he was holding his company back - just in time.
    He had to be better.
    He had to lead better.
    Ultimately, he had to let go.
    The first thing he did? He sat down with his team and shared his epiphany. Then he asked for their help - to become a better leader.
    Talk about eating crow. That's a third trip to the buffet.
    Matt decided to "paint the picture of what he wants to be and what he wants for success."
    He then laid it out for the team.
    Most bought in. Some didn't. That was OK.
    What happened next was epic.
    Key Takeaways for Leaders and Entrepreneurs:
    Rethink everything.Transparency is essential.Work on yourself - and ask others to help you.More hours does not always translate to better performance.Matt's Eating Crow Moments:
    Waking up and realizing he was the problem.Giving examples of this to his team (showing them he really gets it).Stepping back and relinquishing control.Knowing everyone won't buy in.You can find Matt, and his excellent content for leaders on LinkedIn here:
