The Real Influencers Project aims to discover the influences that we have in our lives that helped us to become who we are today. Everyone has a story, and I want to hear it!
Artist Roni Zulu
Roni Zulu started out, like many kids do, coloring and drawing on anything he could, but for Roni it wasn't just a phase. His desire to be an artist was too strong to deny. With the support of family and friends, it became his life. Today he joins me to talk about just that, how he became a tattoo artis, and his newest venture, writing and illustrating children's books.
BMX National Champion Barry McManus
When one thinks of selfless, kind and genuinely nice people, not many think of Barry McManus. But that's where they are wrong. One of the greatest to ever race a bmx bike, Barry took the time to chat with me about his early years in the sport, his influences and where he is today.
Meditation Teacher Jennifer Goodrich
Jennifer Goodrich was leading a successful career in the corporate world when, after a series of events, she realized that her mental health and wellbeing was more important than anything she was getting working for someone else. So she took matters into her own hands and, not only helped herself, but is helping others as well.
Mikey King had a cycling career most dream of. Successful in every discipline he competed in, he's now seeing the same success in his post-racing career. In this episode he talks about that and so much more.
BMX Historian and Racer: Dale Holmes
Dale Holmes chased his BMX racing career from England all the way to Southern California, leaving a trail of wins and championships. His historical knowledge of the sport has helped to keep the memories alive, and his drive to get more kids involved has led him to a business venture that has proven results of introducing and keeping kids coming back to BMX racing.
BMX Icon Greg Hill
You can't think of the early years of BMX racing without thinking about Greg Hill, one of the sports premier athletes for decades. His dedication and drive propelled him to the top of the sport where he resided for years before retiring to coach and train other athletes. In this episode, Greg talks to me about his entry into BMX and what he does today that fills his soul.
