    082 - Hunters of Color and Inclusive Hunting with Jimmy Flatt

    082 - Hunters of Color and Inclusive Hunting with Jimmy Flatt

    Would you start a movement to fight for something you believe in? My guest this week did just that. Meet Jimmy Flatt, founder of Hunters of Color (HOC). Jimmy is an avid hunter who saw the need for an "inclusion revolution" in hunting to make it safe and welcoming for members of the BIPOC community. And so was born HOC.

    The mission HOC is “To create a more equitable community for hunters of color by dismantling barriers to entry through educational opportunities, mentorships, and resources for new hunters, in order to promote diversity and preserve the North American Model of Conservation of our wild spaces and animals.”

    We chat about diversity, equity, justice, and inclusion in hunting, how allies can step up and help, the HOC mentor program, and much more. Plus Jimmy shares his favorite hunting story and takes on some rapid-fire questions.

    078 - Discipline is Better Than Motivation

    The title says it all. We can't always control whether we feel motivated, but we can control our actions, discipline. So instead of letting our motivation, or lack thereof, dictate our future, let us instead focus on developing self-disciple and dedication.

Free Flowing Without the Lull

I listened to the episode on goals vs why & expected a generic message, but found myself re-thinking which one is more important. I also loved how music played throughout this episode & it appeared to be free flowing thoughts as he drove home from the gym! Look forward to hearing more!

Real, Raw, Relevant

Real, unvarnished dialogue with some of the most one-of-a-kind yet relevant people out there. Captivating, thought provoking, fun.
