Bob Goff on What We are Made to Do {Podcast Episode #13}

Bob Goff and me

With Bob Goff!

I absolutely loved interviewing Bob Goff for this episode. I had the privilege of meeting him in person last fall at the Story conference. He definitely makes you feel like you have known him all of your life in a short time.

His book, Love Does, had an incredible impact on me. I bought more copies (and gave them away) than any other book in my life. He really captures his whimsy and energy in the book.

On this episode, we talk about:

  • If you just want facts, watch the Discovery channel
  • Instead of thinking about what you are able to do, find out what you were MADE to do. Then go do a bunch of that!
  • Bob’s version of planning is whatever he can write on a barf bag
  • Move towards people
  • Don’t expect other people to live exactly as you do
  • Be more available to people

You can find Bob here:



I’d love to hear your thoughts on this episode. I’d also be incredibly honored if you would leave an honest review on iTunes here. Thank you for those who have left reviews. I greatly appreciate it.

Why is Finding Your Dream so hard?



We have decided we want to live differently. We’re learning to dream again. We’re remembering that there is SO much more to life than being ordinary.

But many of us don’t have a defined dream. We have no idea where to start or how to figure it out.

I have been there. It’s taken a while of walking through living differently in order for me to start seeing patterns emerging.

That’s why I hosted a Find Your Dream webinar with my friend, Jim Woods. We know that you are made for something amazing, and we want to help you start putting some of those pieces together.

Here is the link to the recording! We had some trouble recording the very beginning, but you only missed the introductions. Enjoy!


Andy Traub on If He Can Do It, You Can Too {Podcast Episode #12}


Andy Traub joins me on the podcast today. His story has inspired me, and I think it will encourage you too. He is a business owner, and recently had great success with his book, Early to Rise. He was able to get his family out of debt, and they recently had their Debt Free Scream on the Dave Ramsey show. He is a true example of working hard and making his dreams happen.

On this episode, we talk about:

  • Don’t expect your original plan to stay the same
  • The time it takes to become an expert is less than you think
  • Try something. If it fails, then you’ll know not to do it again
  • If he can do it, you can too!
  • Use the right tools, and try!
  • There is power in engagement
  • It can work, but you have to put yourself out there
  • If you have something that can empower and help someone, do it

You can sign up for the Early to Rise for Moms insider list here. You can also hear more about his upcoming self publishing system here, or follow him on Twitter here.

I am so thankful for the honest iTunes reviews. If you haven’t left one yet, please head over there and let me know how you feel about the show. I great appreciate it!




Stu McLaren on The Ripple Effect of Community {Podcast Episode #11}



Stu McLaren joins me on the podcast today. Stu is the founder of Wishlist Member. He is incredibly inspiring, and so humble. His words are very encouraging, and I am excited to hear what you take away from this episode.

On this episode we talk about:

  • Focus on the ONE person you can impact
  • There is a big ripple effect when in community
  • Listen to your gut instinct
  • Make something out of nothing
  • Take a step in a direction
  • Start with your interest, and explore it a little deeper
  • There is a far greater risk in NOT doing anything than taking the first step
  • Don’t get discouraged. SOMEONE has a passion for what you do
  • When I learn from others, it helps me get better
  • When you have good people, do whatever you can to keep them

You can check out his Fear post here. You can find Stu on his website or on Twitter.

There was so much wisdom in Stu’s words. What stuck out to you?


John Crist on Doing the Work {Podcast Episode #10}



I loved hosting John Crist on the podcast. He literally cracks me up! I love his story of doing the hard work, putting in countless hours, and constantly improving his craft.

I met him at Start night in Nashville earlier this year, and he has inspired me with his work ethic and willingness to continually ask for feedback. John travels all over the country, and you can check out his tour schedule here. You will not regret catching one of his shows.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Take a risk and do something now to help you step towards your dream
  • We are our biggest obstacles
  • Once you get constructive feedback from people you don’t know, you will know you’re on the right track
  • If your purpose is bigger than anyone’s hate for you, you’re all set
  • If John can still bomb jokes when he does this for a living, it should be encouraging to everyone
  • It’s about giving laughs, not getting laughs
  • If you take yourself out of the equation and make it about others, you win
  • When you do something terrible, follow it up with something that works
  • The barriers to entry are ridiculously low. Start tonight!
  • We are all in this together. Let’s support each other!

You can find John on his website here or on Twitter here. Check out this video.

I’d be incredibly honored if you’d leave your honest review on iTunes.
