    Find The Passion That Makes You Alive - Adam Hoyt (ActiveCast)

    Find The Passion That Makes You Alive - Adam Hoyt (ActiveCast)

    This is the next episode of our ActiveCast series where I have the opportunity to go and hike on top of Bald Mountain in Utah with Adam Hoyt, who is an outdoor enthusiast, entrepreneur and attorney. We had some great cinematography and enjoyed a beautiful sunset sitting there on top of Bald Mountain in Utah. He explains how the outdoors has helped save his life, and that it is his sanctuary where he goes and reconnects with himself, where he taps into his spirituality, where he heals, grows, learns, and develops and cultivates creativity, such as this new venture he has launched called Outdoorgasm. With Outdoorgasm, he is trying to get other people outdoors so that they can go out and have an amazing experience and connect with themselves spiritually, physically, cognitively and help someone heal and grow.

Steve Gamlin ,

In an 'Instant' Pot World...this Show is Slow Cookin' Goodness!

What does it take to succeed? Depends on who you ask, I guess.
These days, there is no shortage of people out there spewing their 'Instant Result Super Secret Formulas' across Social Media.
I'm old school. Give me something that makes sense. Aligns with my core values and style.
Show me your results. I'll latch on, dig deep, add my personal flavor...and start cookin'.
Over time, all the flavors will blend to make something that is uniquely suited to the flavors I want to enjoy in my life.
The Success Podcast is like this.
Trent does a great job of 'having conversations' and letting the ingredients simmer together over the course of each episode.
I had the great honor of being a guest recently and, as I watched the replay of the show...smiled the whole time.
This show is REAL...and really engaging.
Hope you enjoy it...I did!
