+++ Let’s Cheers! - How To Reach Out To Someone You Admire To “Pick Their Brain Over Coffee”

Have you ever wanted to reach out to someone you respect to get together for advice but didn’t know how to ask?
 
Maybe, you hit someone up already but didn’t get a ‘yes’ or EVEN WORSE… you never got a response. The act of reaching out to people you respect is a catalyst to living a curious life, but nothing makes a person’s eyes roll back in their head far enough to watch their own hair grow from the inside out than a vague, “I’d love to pick your brain…” email.
 
So… how the hell do we even go about it? In today’s “Let’s Cheers” podcast I outline 3 things you should keep in mind when doing this, so grab an americano and join me in the shadow of a cathedral in… Boise Idaho? What?… to learn more.

+++ Let’s Cheers! - Hunting chickens, doing laundry, and the dangers of success at young age. (feat. Dan Rodriguez)

Have I ever told you my theory about how Michael Jackson (and countless other child stars that found success at an early age) were actually emotionally stunted because they didn’t have to do their own laundry?

Well... Dan Rodriguez has done my laundry twice this last week, but that’s beside the point…

Join Dan and I in the van to talk about why, in a destination orientated culture, we should look at the journey our careers, the parts often considered mundane, with gratitude.

+++ Let’s Cheers! - “Astronauts, Austin Texas, And The Other 23 hrs”

Just got out of a soundcheck in Austin Texas and was reminded of a thought I had about how we often get confused about some of the skillsets we ACTUALLY get hired for, that we may not always recognize.

+++ Let’s Cheers! - “The Compression Of Comfort”

Episode 1 of my "Let's Cheers!" experiment. LET'S FREAKIN GO!

 

I'm in New Orleans and was reminded of a couple conversations I had yesterday in Nashville that had NOTHING to do with creativity, comfort, and forward motion. But then again... everything's connected... maybe they had EVERYTHING to do with it...
