    Ep. 53: Sean Swarner - The Cancer Climber

    Ep. 53: Sean Swarner - The Cancer Climber

    Sean Swarner is considered by many to be one of the top 10 most inspirational people in human history. He is a survivor of not 1 but 2 advanced stage cancer diagnosis, a year long coma and the removal of one of his lungs. 
    With only one functioning lung, a prognosis of fourteen days to live, and being in a medically-induced coma for a year, Sean Swarner is the first cancer survivor to stand on top of the world... Mt. Everest. Sean has broken through defined human limitation in order to redefine the way the world views success.
    Sean was diagnosed with two deadly, different, and unrelated forms of cancer, once at the age of thirteen and again at the age of sixteen. After an incredibly poor prognosis, and being read his last rites, Sean astounded the medical community when he survived both these brutal diseases. He realized that after defeating cancer twice, no challenge would ever be too great, no peak too high.
    Sean proved his theory when he crested the peak of Mt. Everest. As the first cancer survivor to do so, Sean decided to continue climbing and has since topped the highest peaks in Africa, Europe, South America, Australia, Antarctica, and North America, thus completing the “7-Summits”. Upon skiing to both the South and the North Poles, Sean completed the Explorer’s Grand Slam.
    With the completion of the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, Sean is the only person in history to accomplish these inhuman feats.
    Sean shares his message of healing, hope, and triumph with cancer patients worldwide. He serves as a source of inspiration as the founder of the non-profit organization, The CancerClimber Association, as author of the book “Keep Climbing,” and as a motivational speaker to corporations, universities, and other organizations around the globe.

    Ep. 52: Travis Hawkes - How I Founded A Digital Media Company During The Pandemic

    Ep. 52: Travis Hawkes - How I Founded A Digital Media Company During The Pandemic

    Travis Hawkes is the founder of Travis Hawkes Media and the co-host of the "Struggle to Strength" podcast on Apple Podcasts. I met Travis when the vape company he was a field marketing executive for, sponsored an event a company I partnered in was producing. We stayed connected and after seeing he had shifted directions during the pandemic, starting a career in digital media which 12 months later is thriving, I wanted to bring him on to share how he did it. 
    We talked about old stories from working in the California cannabis space, his journey building his brand and company during the pandemic, and dove a little deeper around drones, which he is an FAA licensed drone pilot. 
    Great episode if you are an entrepreneur or looking to start a business in the future. Thanks for SUBSCRIBING & SHARING!
