In this week's episode, Billy and Brian talk to John Wessinger, author of Ride the Wave: How to Embrace Change and Create a Powerful New Relationship with Risk, about:
--how a surfing vacation gone extremely wrong led understanding the importance of embracing the conditions regardless of prior preparation
--how that surfing experience prepared him for an unexpected realization in his professional life that encouraged him to take more healthy professional risks
--how embracing the conditions, adopting a progression-based mindset, and using risk as a compass has helped him grow as a professional and as a person
--how these three principles helped him redeem himself on the surfboard and in his professional life a year later
--what surfers mean when they talk about "the universal stoke"
--how taking healthy risks have added to his overall satisfaction with his life
