Sometimes the answers to our biggest questions are not found in explanations, but in good stories.

    Ep 28 - DeVona Wright Cottrell: Building a runway where women, youth and young professionals can see what’s possible.

    Ep 28 - DeVona Wright Cottrell: Building a runway where women, youth and young professionals can see what’s possible.

    I wanted DeVona to join me on my podcast, because I’m inspired by her story and wisdom. She grew up in a segregated city, experienced intense racism in high school, worked extremely hard to achieve her dreams, and now uses her platform to do a lot of good. DeVona’s voice is full of wisdom. We talked about career, race, success, caretaking for a parent, and much more.

    Ep 27 - Brian Lammi: Sports agent & media producer

    Ep 27 - Brian Lammi: Sports agent & media producer

    Brian Lammi is an entrepreneur and owner of six companies, including the Founder and CEO of TEAM LAMMI, which represents and has produced events for a wide range of epic athletes and personalities. 

    I wanted to know the story of how he landed his first professional athlete client, and what it's like to navigate that world. 

    I was also curious to know what role he played in Donald Driver (his client, friend, and business partner) winning Dancing with the Stars...

    Ep 26 - Craig Counsell: Professional baseball, Parenting, Purpose, and Everything in between

    Ep 26 - Craig Counsell: Professional baseball, Parenting, Purpose, and Everything in between

    Craig Counsell is a very successful professional baseball player turned manager. He played sixteen seasons with five different teams, and has now been the manager for the Milwaukee Brewers since 2015. He’s had a very impressive career, and he’s also a really good guy. 

    I treated this interview like a coffee shop conversation, asking quite a few random questions... all stuff I'm really curious about. There are some special moments in this episode. Craig said some things about ambition that were really helpful to me.

    Ep 25 - Keller Fitzsimmons: An entrepreneur, author, and artist with a wild story

    Keller knows wealth, poverty, failure, success, and the wisdom that comes with it all. She is an entrepreneur, an author, and an artist. This conversation touches a full spectrum of those topics and goes extraordinarily deep at times. 

    Keller shares real wisdom about how to find our way through complex life situations and challenges. 

    This is a special conversation.

    Ep 24 - Ava's Joy: A story about joy in the middle of suffering

    Ep 24 - Ava's Joy: A story about joy in the middle of suffering

    Ava is full of joy. She says the trajectory of her life is happiness. But why is that true when she suffers so much? 

    When Ava was 13 years old she was forced to make a choice between living with extreme chronic pain for the rest of her life or to have her nerves severed to end the pain which would cause her to lose all feeling. Imagine being faced with that decision. And that's just scratching the surface of this 19 year old's struggle. 

    So why is she happy? Where does her joy come from? And how can the rest of us find it? That's what we discussed.

    Ep 23 - Antonio Ryckman: A black kid who loved computers and did something about it

    Ep 23 - Antonio Ryckman: A black kid who loved computers and did something about it

    Antonio is a 24 year old entrepreneur who started his career at the age of 12.  

    When he was a child, he hid his love for computers because he thought black kids weren't supposed to be good at using them.  Secretly, he started a YouTube channel where he taught people how to use design software (when he was 12). His videos earned hundreds of thousands of views.  At the age of 14, he got his first job as a graphic designer, creating products for the NFL and Disney World.  At age 18 he started the business he runs now with his business partner.

    I interviewed Antonio because I believe his story will inspire other young people to believe their talent can be activated in powerful ways.

Humanizing

Greg’s willingness to be transparent brings a sense of calmness for the people he’s interviewing as well as a hook that draws the listener in. He’s literally helping all parties become aware of the human conditions and how those conditions affect and connect us all. Heavy work down here on earth done oh so heavenly. Thanks Peg Leg!

Profound

The insights that emerge in Greg’s carefully curated conversations and stories are profound. They beg the question: how do I activate the good life here and now through simple choices and wonder. So good!

Genuine

Greg has an ability to tell a story and articulate an idea in a masterful way. I was challenged and was forced to encounter his thought provoking ideas to hopefully provide for me better understanding of what it means to be human. Enjoy!
