Building Something People Care About with Calming Manatee Founder Kurt Elster
Today's guest, who came highly recommended by former guest Nick Loper, really put my robot dancing to shame. And, more importantly, he dropped some serious wisdom about how doing more awesome shit and putting it out into the world has shifted the way he leads and runs his business. Kurt Elster shares with me how one stupid auto-correction error in a text led to an overnight success we call "Calming Manatee." Creative entrepreneurs...this episode is especially for you!

Finding What Connects Us and Changing Your World with Nelson de Witt / Roberto Coto
Today's guest has a remarkable story, which is why I couldn't wait to get him on the show. I met Nelson de Witt at MisfitCon in Fargo this past spring where I learned of his story about being separated from his biological family during El Salvador's civil war and how he was reunited with them at the age of 16. Today, Nelson works on entrepreneurial art projects that challenge him to push through fear and express himself creatively while doing meaningful and relevant work that fuels his misfit spirit.
