Inspiration. We often see it as a grand experience, like a lightening bolt that propels us forward into greatness. We look for it but believe it's a finite experience that is rare to find. We challenge those assumptions. We all have the ability to be inspired every day. Inspiration is all around us. You just have to be awake to it. This week we talk about the importance of inspiration, where and how to find it, and how to keep it flowing.Read More
We live in a society today where 70% of people are unhappy in their jobs. There is a disconnect between ourselves, our passions, and our purpose; with many people in positions where they neither know nor can live their purpose. If you don't know what your purpose is or you're stuck trying to make it happen--don't judge yourself. This week, we explore the factors that keep us from living our purpose and trap us in cycles of shame about how we're looking for and experiencing that spark which gives our lives meaning.Read More
This week's podcast pays homage to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Nowadays it seems pretty simple, right? We built rockets. Astronauts went to space. They walked on moon and came back. But that giant leap for mankind was never a sure thing. Nothing had been created: no space suits, no rockets, no computers that were up to the task. Everything had to be invented. And, that is how it is as business owners. We have big ideas, but start without knowing what we need, what needs to be created, and the multitude of steps it's going to take to get there. That’s how we innovate and make it happen. Join us as we geek out about the space race and how it created the world we live in.Read More

If a wormhole to another world appeared, would you step through it? What would you leave behind? What would make the risk too great? As business owners, we step through wormholes all the time. Sometimes we make giant leaps of faith. Other times, we're scared to think about what is on the other side. This week we go on a journey through space and time to ask, what do you really want?Read More
