There has been a longing in me that recently was awakened by talking with a number of awesome men who have helped breathe a new sense of adventure into my heart. We must stop using the excuse of having kids and a mortgage to hold us back from a life filled with adventure. I want to share their stories (and more) with you, along with weekly challenges with your friends and family! I want to encourage you to live adventurously every day through a mix of casual, critical, and crucial adventures.

    S4:E8 Where are you putting your focus? With Stephen Scoggins

    Where we put our focus is where our heart is. Today on the show, for the last interview on the show for a while, we talk about that focus. Are you focusing on your circumstances? Or are you focused on more excellent, praiseworthy things? My guest today, Stephen Scoggins used his focus to go from a man on the street without a home, to focusing on his mentor and launching a construction company. Listen to his amazing story of transformation and be inspired!

In Season 7, he survived by himself for nearly 100 days in the Canadian Arctic and at one point had his shelter surrounded by a pack of wolves. You don't want to miss this one!
