What If It Was ILLEGAL to Follow Your Dreams? feat. Moby Hayat

In the US, the classic depiction of The American Dream goes as follows:
You can come into the country and, through your hard work, determination and resourcefulness, you can create a slice of nearly infinite success for yourself, your family, and your community.

It’s why America has claimed the moniker of “The Land of Opportunity” for so long.

But what if you couldn’t just pursue opportunities? What if your choices were limited, and in fact SO limited that you essentially only had one option and one opportunity.

How would you react if you’d identified amazing opportunities you were dying to pursue, but you weren’t allowed to?

What if you came into this country, and for almost 10 years you were told that you can’t pursue your ideas? Not only that, what if you were told that if you DID pursue your ideas that you would be forced to LEAVE the country?

The Secret to Meaningful Work feat. Tim “Mr. Meaningful Work” Olaore

This week in the #ProfessionWithPurpose movement, you’re in for a real treat.

My guest is more than a kindred spirit… you might call him my brother-in-arms, as we are both seeking to make ALL this time spent by billions of people WORTH something.

We both want to see as many people as possible find success, fulfillment, and yes MEANING in the way we make a living.

After meeting this gentleman a few short months ago, I couldn’t wait to sit down (or stand up, in my case) and have a chat with him. As expected, our conversation rocked, and it undoubtedly will be the first of many.

I present to you my fantastic conversation with Tim “Mr. Meaningful Work” Olaore.

Leaning Into Leading feat. Nathan Ryan

How do you confidently sell your freelance graphic design services to an established business when you’re just a teenager?

What do you do when you’re 21 years old, and you find yourself repeatedly sitting across a conference room table from (now former) Disney CEO Bob Iger?

The ONE and ONLY Thing You Need To Be A Leader

I field a lot of questions from people about Leadership.

“How will I know when I’m ready for a leadership position?”

“What if I don’t have a leadership title?”

“What if I get the opportunity to lead, but I don’t know how to lead?”

I think about this idea of “Leadership Readiness” ALL… THE… TIME. And after decades of experience and observation, I’ve come to a conclusion.

Best Practices of High-Performing Teams

Is there a more rewarding feeling than knowing you are a part of a team that operates and performs at a high level? For my money, it’s one of the absolute best feelings in the world.

In this special episode, you’re going to get to hear a recording I managed to dig up from a talk I was privileged enough to deliver at Austin Startup Week back in late 2018. And while the title of the talk is Engineering Excellence: Best Practices of High-Performing Teams, these principles extend far beyond the world of Software Engineering. In fact, they all apply in some shape or form to ALL teams, which is why I’m so thrilled to share it with you in this episode.

Defy the Expectations, Choose Your Life, and Thrive On with CJ Finley

In this week’s podcast episode, I’m very excited to have a conversation with somebody who I believe really embodies the very ideas of profession with purpose, for a number of reasons.

CJ’s path really embodies profession with purpose for a handful of reasons… and when I looked at his career history… he didn’t come straight out of school, knowing exactly what it was he wanted to do. From what I can tell, he didn’t have a path set. He didn’t have a clear direction of exactly what he wanted to do.
