Bringing more interesting, supportive, and healthy people into your life is a key component as we go after our dreams. In this episode, we talk about how to connect and bring these people into your life and gain their support for the life you crave. During the conversation we share how we stay connected with our growing network in addition to constantly looking at how we can connect them to other people/opportunities.
We are honored to have Bob Burg join us to talk about success and the importance of shifting your focus from getting to giving.

This shift will greatly improve your relationships, grow your network, and provide you with greater happiness in your life.

Going after any big change requires stepping outside your comfort zone and learning to be a bit bolder. However, bold is a word we throw around without truly understanding the definition. To us, being bold means realizing you are scared but moving forward anyways. In this way boldness is different for each of us and does not require comparing your life and bold living to anyone but yourself. We discuss how to live more boldly and share some of the future plans we're making that scare us.
In this episode, we're joined by Tess Marshall of The Bold Life. Tess shares her insights for living a fearless life based on her experience as a fear-shattering, risk taker, author, blogger and courage coach.

Too often we talk about the importance of going after our dreams, but then say “now is not the time” or “I’ll get to that ‘some day’”. But what if you did not have the time? What if your opportunity to live your life to the fullest was limited? Would that change your decision and propel you into action?
Today we’re talking about taking stock of your life, realizing your mortality, and taking action NOW towards what you want most. It is more than simply talking about what you want, but clearly defining and making it a reality.
You’ll discover lessons you can apply to ensure you are living the life you crave every day.
