Episode 100 Show Notes


I cannot believe that we’ve made it to episode 100. In many ways it seems like it has taken forever to reach this point but in others, it was just yesterday that I released that very first episode. It’s impossible to quantify all the ways I’ve changed and grown as this podcast has evolved, but here to drag it out of me is Trevor Bloch of INDEAL. 

Rather than simply share my thoughts on the state of this podcast and the industry, I decided it would be more fun to have someone else ask the questions for a change. Trevor definitely did an amazing job at it (while also getting in some good jabs!)

Honestly, it has been a privilege and an honor to share my voice with all of our listeners but more importantly to share the stories of others in the industry. Our industry is growing, changing, evolving, and we need to continue to have conversations about ways that we can all keep up with the times. 

If we’re looking to avoid fading into obscurity, we must continue to grow. This podcast has been an example of this principle that has impacted my own life and my career and business. 

Best of all, it’s been a LOT of fun to learn about different aspects of the industry and ways in which people are innovating and changing. Trevor did an amazing job of asking questions to help illuminate things about this podcast, but most importantly about the impact raising your voice has. 

I’m not an industry expert. But I do love having experts share their thoughts and knowledge. Stay tuned for the next 100 episodes!
