Ep. 77: Chasing Storms, Catching Dreams - Brian Spencer
May 1, 2018•70 min
How willing are you to go into the storm and then wait for what you want? Today’s guest, Brian Spencer, has set a great example of how to mix passion and perseverance with patience by living the kind of story that you don’t hear about every day.Known as the “Canadian Storm Chaser,” Brian loves to chase tornadoes. And I don’t mean metaphorical emotional storms (though, like anyone else, he’s been through his share of those too). I mean that, once he discovered he held a fascination with the power and ferocity nature sometimes unleashes in the form of tornadoes, he was determined to get as close to them as possible. He has, and you’re going to hear about it today. Brian is also a successful business person, operator of a company called Streaming Incorporated while also continuing to serve as creator and curator of a very popular website called PearlJamLive.com. There is a strong thread of curiosity, passion, connection, challenge, perseverance and patience that runs through all aspects of Brian’s story, and the lesson is (I think) that in order to catch our dreams, we sometimes have to be willing to chase a storm or two and also be willing to wait for things to develop - or not - in their own time.
