    How Prison Changed His Life for the Better with Brandon Potts

    How Prison Changed His Life for the Better with Brandon Potts

    Have you ever been to Prison? I’m going to be bold and guess that most of our listeners have never personally been incarcerated, however, in today’s episode I get the chance to talk with Brandon Potts about the time he spent in prison. 
    In 2011 Brandon found himself in a life altering accident after having a couple of beers with his friends. What Brandon didn’t see coming was how his life would change for the better after finding himself locked up.
    Listen in as Brandon walks us through the accident, the way he found the Lord, and what unfolded for him through this experience. 
    Sometimes life stops you in your tracks and gives you a course change you never saw coming. This is an incredible story of faith, perspective, and healing.

    Raised Outdoors and Archery Obsessed with Courtney Prete - Interviewed by Richy Harrod

    In this episode of the Soul Summit Podcast, the tables are turned on our host Courtney Prete as she’s interviewed by Richy Harrod from the We Are Outdoorsmen Podcast. Courtney and the Harrods met through the Sportsmen’s Shows nearly a decade ago and have gotten to know one another through years of working the shows together. 
    As Richy interviews Courtney, we get to hear more about how she grew up hunting alongside her dad and when she shifted her focus from rifle hunting to archery. Little did Courtney know, the moment she started archery, her life and career would change! 
    Richy and Courtney talk about the importance of a good mentor in the outdoor space and taking the opportunities to learn from those who’ve spent their lifetime outside and in the hunting world. They also discuss building confidence, self-reliance skills, and the Her Outdoor Journey events. 
    We get to hear about the origin of Courtney’s brand, Her Outdoor Journey, and how she’s on a mission to build community and make space in the outdoors for women and families. Wild places, cool encounters, new like-minded friends, and time in God’s country fuels the fire for adventure and this conversation.
