Relentless Positivity

This one was even more special because it was a lot of the kids I used to coach. They asked me to share a message that was 5 minutes or less and this is what...

What if Curt Cobaine and Elvis never died but instead have been secretly saving the world this whole time?

Disclaimer- this is one of the best times I've ever had on a podcast! The father-son John and Mark Cronin are simply amazing. Together they have created a crazy sock juggernaut.

You've been told that creating a positive and inclusive work environment is as simple as implementing a diversity training session. But despite your efforts, you still see low employee morale and customer dissatisfaction. The pain of investing time and resources into an ineffective action without seeing the...
