Living Intentionally and Finding Significance with Aaron Walker

But he was looking for something more and when friends Dave Ramsey and Dan Miller coaxed him into speaking and coaching, he knew he’d found it. He’d found significance.

Expect Success with Jesse Tevelow

Failure happens. The common wisdom these days seems to be just to build it into the plan from the start. Make 50 sales calls, expecting 49 No’s to get to the 1 Yes. Right? Well, how different might things be if we just expected success instead? Jesse Tevelow is the author of The Connection Algorithm: Take Risks, Defy the Status Quo, and Live Your Passions. He makes the case that expecting success from the get go, being prepared for failure (but not planning FOR it), can actually push us further, make us work harder, and attain way more than we’d ever imagined!
