You Don’t Have To Be Perfect To Be Awesome – Dan Waldschmidt
A step is infinitely easier than a journey, says today’s guest Dan Waldschmidt. Being stuck where we are is a decision we make because the journey appears too long, the obstacles too overwhelming, the mountain too high so we just stay stuck.

1,000+ Days On The Road Running For My Life
That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. – Forrest Gump On December 1st, 2014 I started to run. And I’ve ran every day since. 1,000+ days in a row. In sickness and in health. Come rain or come shine. Come hell or high water. I’ve ran in the […]
The Word #SalesJolt with Keenan
My very first ever Blab appearance, live and in living color (via video), playoff beard and all!

How I Ran 3 Miles Without Stopping, Walking or Having a Freaking Heart Attack And What I Learned
Not that long ago, I ran a full 5k for the first time in my life. And I use the term “run” loosely. It was more like a jog or a trot, kind of a shuffle. But what it most definitely was not was a walk. I didn’t stop to walk, catch my breath or bend […]
