I was recently having a conversation with a group of friends and business connections and mentioned a little bit of my story after my accident, and was met with “what accident?” in response. It turns out, many of my connections don’t know my story. The short version is: I was in a terrible car wreck just after high school and it changed my brain. Pretty crazy, right? In this episode, I will tell the story of the day I got hit by a bus. I’ll

why is she mad when I solve the problem
CharacterPodcasts

Men are programmed to conquer things. We come with software already installed from the factory that has us compelled to solve things, right wrongs, and stand and fight. It’s what makes us such great linear thinkers! We see a problem, we focus on the next steps, we take them, and we conquer. Piece of cake. Unfortunately, in our male-pattern-thinking, we completely miss the perspectives and emotions of those around us, and how our actions impact them. To call us stubborn and bullheaded is such an

And yet, men and women both dream about absolutely dominating the room with the perfect toast. Many secretly dream of raising a glass and speaking off-the-cuff with such prose that the ladies swoon and someone starts a slow-clap. It may not go quite as dramatically, but there’s actually a good formula for making sure your toast is remembered for the

How to fight with your spouse
CharacterPodcastsRelationships

Why would you want to know how to fight with your spouse? Because it’s a natural part of building a healthy, long-lasting relationship. Marriage in America has become something of a joke. Well, not really a joke – more of a statistical mess. Approximately half of all marriages in the US end in divorce. Clearly, we take commitment very seriously. There are many reasons marriages end, including: adultery (I wanted my cake…and some other cakes too) finances (I wanted more cake, but we always fought over our

CharacterPodcasts

Entrepreneurs know the impact haters can have on their success, and more importantly, look for them as an indicator that they’re on the right track. As an owner of several ventures, I’m always on the lookout for detractors and naysayers because they provide me with motivation that I can’t get from my best cheerleaders. Strange as it may sound, someone looking at your ideas and telling you they’re not possible or impractical or stupid or ridiculous or (fill in the blank) will often light a

tips for improving your marriage
CharacterPodcastsRelationships

There comes a time in every man’s education when he reaches the conclusion that the happiness of those he loves is paramount to his own. It is at this moment that the realness of that man begins to blossom. He becomes more than he’s ever been. He becomes a better listener, a better provider (for himself and others), and a driving force for greater, less trivial things. This is what love does. Every single time. Unfortunately, men often commit when they’re in-love with lust, and in-lust
