    EP 3. "Reclaiming Lost Time" & Other Lessons with Gary Ervin | Summiting Mt. Everest

    During a couple of business trips to Africa, Gary Ervin was introduced to Mt. Kilimanjaro. He felt drawn to climbing it for a reason he still can't put into words. Later in life, to celebrate his daughters' graduation, he took his family on a vacation to Africa and summited the first of the seven summits. He is on a quest to reach the top of all seven 7 summits while simultaneously writing a book with lessons from the mountains to his grandchildren. Alli talks with Gary about his experience climbing Mt. Everest, near-death challenges along the way and Gary shares nuggets of wisdom that can be applied to all aspects of life.

    I am so excited to be sharing my brand new podcast, "True Stories with Alli Forsythe," with YOU! The one thing I've come to realize from working with people all over the world and in many different capacities is that it doesn't matter who you are - a little inspiration and the ability to relate to someone can make a huge impact when there is something you want to achieve in your life. My goal for this podcast is to share stories from people from all walks of life who have accomplished incredible things and at one point or another weren't sure if it was possible. Thank you for joining me on this journey and I hope you enjoy this episode along with the many episodes to come!

A welcome dose of inspiration!

I am loving this series. I most recently listened to episode 3 while making breakfast one weekday morning, and as it started my mind was on the stress of my upcoming workday. But as I listened to episode 3 and Gary telling his stories, I found myself holding my breath in anticipation, and a sense of Aw and wonder came over me. Then, when it came time to start work, I realized that the inspiration I felt from listening had reduced the amount of stress I feeling that day. Now I feel like I need to start every work day with one of these episodes!
