    Creating A Business (or Three!) You Love w/ Colleen Law

    Creating A Business (or Three!) You Love w/ Colleen Law

    Sometimes it can be hard to narrow down business ideas and we can put pressure on ourselves to find the “one right thing” for us. But what if the right work plan for you isn’t just one thing, but a few different businesses where you can pursue multiple ideas and use a variety of different skills and abilities?
    We’re joined on this episode by special guest, Colleen Law. Colleen shares her story of becoming a university professor, starting two businesses, and the lessons she’s learned along the way. 
    We also discuss how she balances two businesses and a job, her approach for narrowing down ideas when you feel overwhelmed or stuck, and why we should give our full effort to trying for our dreams, even if we’re not sure it will work out.
    Please join me for this episode and let’s consider together the variety of opportunities to create unique work plans for ourselves that we love!

    Paying it Forward w/ Richard Kaufman

    The challenges we’ve faced and the struggles we’ve walked through can often lead to some of the most powerful opportunities to serve others. We can be a trusted voice of help, as one who has walked a similar path and can speak from personal experience.
    I’m joined on this episode by special guest, Richard Kaufman. Rich is no stranger to some of the struggles that are experienced by veterans who have served. He has struggled with substance abuse addiction, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Rich recently celebrated 32 years of sobriety. Having come back from drug addiction, alcoholism, and homelessness, he now helps people struggling with depression or any other health, fitness, or addiction-related issues.
    In the community, Rich is known as “The Comeback Coach”. Rich is also the author of the book, A Hero’s Journey From Darkness to Light. He is the host of the eighth most-listened-to veteran podcast online, Success Your Why, Powers Your How. On this podcast, he interviews a myriad of guests including business leaders, entrepreneurs, and other prominent figures to talk about their unique journeys and struggles. He is pushing the #todayIdecide campaign, which is focused on assisting people with mental health struggles.
    In this episode, Rich shares his story of struggling with addiction and mental health issues, the day that transformed his perspective and path, and now being able to help others walking through these struggles. We also discuss the impact of spending time with and learning from those you want to be like, why trust and building relationships are key to success in business, and the importance of intentionally charting a new path forward to where you want to be.
    Please join me for this episode and let’s reflect together on the incredible opportunities for us to use our struggles and stories to help others.

Dragham ,

Growth is great

These two do a fine job of talking about the normal fears and struggles that come with the desire to grow as a person or in business. This is a good podcast for anyone wanting to change and improve their life.

Jean Humbrecht ,

Great and inspirational content

Every episode of this podcast has phenomenal content and is inspirational not just for business growth purposes, but all personally. Hearing all of the things that people went through and how they have progressed I am sure will be a huge help to anyone who listens. Some phrases that stand out to me are “You are good enough,” “Give yourself grace,” “God is rooting for you even if no one else is.”

Kbmoose2 ,

Ran out

I am the weirdo who listens on 3X speed, so now I’ve listened to all the episodes and have to wait for more to come out. 😞
