It was an honor to be featured on the Smart People Podcast, a weekly, interview-based podcast that features thought leaders having authentic conversations with host Chris Stemp, and his co-host/producer Job Rojas. In their own words, Smart People Podcast (SPP) “is dedicated to enhancing human connection and fostering personal growth while expanding people’s world views through authentic conversations. We are committed to inspiring listeners through intriguing interviews with a wide array of thought leaders from every profession.” They have hosted amazing guests like Seth Godin, Tony Hsieh, Brene Brown and Dan Pink.

Chris asked me about my entrepreneurial journey, what keeps me going, and why companies hire me. We went a little deeper and talked about the key to changing behaviors, how to make things happen when you feel overwhelmed, living with values, the epidemic of disengaged employees, and more.
