I had a great chat with Andy Charles on the podcast this week. We chatted about his goal of impacting 300 million people in his lifetime.

How great is that!?!

We also got in deep regarding his production process. If you aren’t careful, your podcast production can eat your entire week.

I’d love to have you give it a listen right here:


I have been teaching and coaching for the last 25 years and just wrote my first book called, How to beat Stalin, Hitler, and the Southern State Parkway. It is a motivational story about how in my darkest time, my mother, family history, and football helped to bring me back from the abyss and have a happy and successful life.  I wrote it to help people who are struggling in these very chaotic times.  The goal is that the stories shared will give folks hope for a better tomorrow.  I want to pay back all of the people who helped me.  I hope you give my book a chance.  MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER. TEACHER IN SOCIAL STUDIES at Eastchester High School for 25 years. MARRIED WITH ONE DAUGHTER     Author/motivational speaker/ Co-Founder Weston football youth camps.  Offensive coordinator Weston High School. Head Football Coach Sleepy Hollow High School. BOOK: How to beat Stalin, Hitler, and the Southern State Parkway.


There are many times in our lives when we just have to take a moment to say thanks; believe me when I say that this is definitively one of those moments. This podcast has now just gone beyond six thousand downloads, and we know for sure that you have made it possible, you have invested your trust and commitment to our content, and we are encouraged to work even harder, to ensure that we create the episodes that will inspire you and add value to your lives. More than anything else, we want you to learn to be happy, healthy, and prosperous whilst discovering your true self. This can only be accomplished when you are willing to truly embrace who you are, and not whom you represent. Sometimes it is hard to be yourself, especially when you are really living to uphold the expectations of others or society, and not yourself. If you hold yourself to high standards in all aspects of your life, then the only thing that matters is how you manage that in the light of achieving your goals. Our podcast thrives on the stories and accounts of real people, people who have gone through the process of failure before success, people who overcame pain and loneliness, defeated illnesses and shrugged off the effects of abuse and anxiety. These are the people that shape and inspire hope because their stories and narrations are filled with emotion, compassion, and experience. They are not reading from a book or notepad, they are expressing their lives before us, they are sharing the process of dreams to reality, visions to tangible evidence, and the lessons they would have learned along the way. We do this because we want our partnership with you to grow, we desire for you to deny limiting beliefs and cast disdain on your doubts. The sky is not your limit, your limit is when you choose to stop trying, stop believing, and stop fighting for what you believe you were created to do or become.  Even if the light may seem dim now, the fact that it is still on tells me that your desire can rise from embers to glowing fiery coals, that you can still take your life to the next level of health, happiness, and prosperity. One mentor of mine once said; “many of us go around in life expecting bridges to appear between our canyons, all the while not realizing that we have the ability to grow wings and soar” TODAY is a fine day to start your quest for real fulfillment by giving yourself the benefit of the doubt, by coming to terms with the reality of your existence.
