Colby Jenkins, Green Beret, Public Speaker, Builds A-Teams
Colby has led people through the darkest of dangers. Any wrong moves and you end up dead. Being a Green Beret, he has been put through some of the most challenging circumstances imaginable. Like the time his chopper was gunned down by enemy forces in Afghanistan. His troops were completely surrounded by the enemy, but by communicating clearly, keeping a level head, and doing the very next thing, they were able to get out of those dangers without any loss of life. Colby has led an incredible life and has learned the value of being kind to all. He uses many of the skills he learned as a Green Beret to help build companies and businesses into A-Teams. He knows exactly what it takes to succeed and has a tremendous passion for serving others. Colby is a very gentle yet firm man, and it’s these qualities that have led him so far in life. Such a great time chatting with Colby. And he would love to connect with anyone listening to this podcast. Reach out to him via his website! Enjoy the podcast!
Daniel Ockey, Co-Founder of Centsei
Daniel is fascinated by creators, entrepreneurs, real estate, personal finance, strategy, restaurants, personal finance, decision making, and influence. His passion is to help others change their mindset regarding money, teaching them how to properly budget, invest, etc. But this all came because of his own identity around money. After accumulating a lot of money, Daniel became obsessed with appearance. He needed everyone to know he was making plenty of money. He had a nice car, treated everyone to nice dinners, left $100 tips, all while racking up tons and tons of credit card debt. But his facade was everything to him. He had to keep it going. It wasn't until he married that his facade started to crumble. He had to come to terms with himself, realizing how much his false image of himself really cost him. Seeking help, he and his wife learned to budget together. After learning some consistent principles, he and his wife Mikayla started to see the incredible benefit of helping others change their mindset towards money as well. This has now become his passion. It was incredibly fascinating taking this journey with him. Enjoy!

Levi Lindsay, Founder of VidArmy, Director of Content Marketing at Kizik, Co-Founder at Mind
Levi has a fascinating story. Because of his vulnerability. By all measure, Levi is a successful entrepreneur. He has founded various businesses, scaled and hired employees, and put a dent in the world. But due to various drama in business, Levi experienced severe burnout. He had panic attacks, an overactive mind, inability to stay present, etc. After some inner battles, his wife declared that she just wanted her husband back. That hit him like a ton of bricks. He recognized that the worldly success he was chasing just didn't matter. He openly started discussing his burn out on social media platforms, and truthfully, got flack from other entrepreneurs. But he kept being vulnerable and open. He learned how important mental health was for well being. Levi continues to do business, but is very mindful about how much he tries to take on. He spends much more time with his family, creating awesome memories with them. It was awesome talking to him about these struggles on this podcast. Hope you enjoy!
Bret Engemann, Former Quarterback at BYU, Handsomest contestant of the only season of the Bachelorette that never filmed
Ah truly Bret Engemann is one of the good guys. He was the charming and handsome guy at Timpview High School. Athletics ran in his blood. After graduating from high school, Bret went on to play football at BYU and also the Raiders. But as we started diving deep into this podcast, I discovered a lot of things about my old friend. For one, life threw him many, many curve balls. Things did not go according to plan. Bret had to step into the dark many times in his life. And through it all, he learned and grew even more. He learned the importance of being nice to EVERYONE. He also learned that it's way more important to find joy in the process rather than the outcome. We talked about the illusion of control and how our unpredictable future has led to understanding what is really the most important thing in his life. We also talked about his short lived career on the Bachelorette and how that led to him being married to his wife. These things could never be written in a script. Too unbelievable. And yet, it's all true. Great catching up with my buddy. Enjoy!
Jordan and Bubba Page, Creators of Fun, Cheap, or Free, and The Page Company
Can a frugal mindset be an abundant one? Jordan and Bubba Page declare that it absolutely is. While raising their family and having minimal finances, Jordan came up with really creative ways to live within their means while raising a family. And they found incredible ways to live a very memorable and fun life while keeping things on the cheap. She decided to share her knowledge on her blog and youtube channel. And now, millions and millions of views later, they are thriving in life, because of this frugal mindset. Discussing these topics with them, it became very evident that frugal did not equal scarcity. They have lived a very very full life, despite business failures, ups and downs of life, etc. One of their most important focuses in life focuses on lifestyle rather than acquiring material things. They have also spent a considerable amount of time teaching their kids the value of hard work rather than taking their now current financial blessings for granted. We also talked about the pros and cons of social media and discussed how none of their kids currently have social media accounts. All wise words and advice. Great time chatting with great folks. Enjoy this podcast!
Austin Reed Alleman, Nathanael from the Chosen
What did the fig tree moment represent for all of us? If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then you my friends are sadly missing out on a transformational experience. In season 2 episode 2 of the Chosen, the future apostle Nathanael was sitting as a broken man, his entire dream for his life now in absolute ruins. Austin, who plays Nathanael, chatted with me over an hour about his life and the circumstances that landed him on the Chosen. We talked about the nature of the world and how that moment represented so much of the brokenness the world feels and how we can build ourselves back up again. I don’t know if either of us planned on discussing some of the heavy subjects we discussed, but man was it awesome. Austin, himself, is a happy guy and is extremely humbled and grateful that his part on the Chosen has had such a worldwide impact. We talked about how to have joy in a constantly evolving world. Such powerful stuff. Hope you enjoy!
Genuine show telling the stories the world needs to hear more of
I love this podcast for 2 reasons:
1st - Charan Prabhakar is an excellent host - he asks great questions, focuses on the guest and doesn’t overwhelm the show with his own thoughts - rather he highlights what the guest brings to the show.
2nd - The stories that are shared are truly good and inspiring episodes, I always leave uplifted, hopeful, and motivated.
In a world full of podcasts, this one rises above the rest.
