Let's move our focus from the cold winter to where the
sun is shining: Spring!
One of my favorite parts of spring is March Madness. I love
sports, I love baseball and I love the race to the final game
(especially when the underdog wins).
Most importantly, after the final game, I love when they
play the Luther Vandross song, One Shining
Moment, while showing the highlights of the best plays
from the entire tournament. They tie it all together and today, I
am going to do something similar for you.
On today's episode, I'll recap each of my guests from Season 1
and my main takeaway from each. So many great tips on living
inspired. Here we go!

mother, Christian leader] Mom helped me kick
off the season talking about life, the fire that change
everything and her insights on resilience, faith, family and
- Brian Buffini [business owner, speaker
& author] He shared the question
his grandfather asked when reviewing work for the family
painting business: "Can you put your name on it?" If the
answer wasn't yes it had to be fixed. That tangible work ethic
is the foundation of Brian's success today.

survivor] Addiction and cancer threatened her life;

Perspective truly matters.

Forward was my favorite this year covering a

the absence of a dream; so DREAM BIG." And SO MANY amazing nuggets
like this one.
