Difficult conversations can very often lead into areas of personal growth.

Lifelong runner Tina Muir doesn’t shy away from these discussions as she builds her two successful running podcasts, Running for Real and Running Realized, and continues to chal...

“I like to try new things and just keep bettering myself in whatever it is that I'm trying to challenge myself at the given time.”

Being a top-level athlete in an event that involves chugging beer AND running laps might sound too good to be true for most people.

“I didn't really have a vision. It was just like these little wins that kept me going and really inspired me to create more.” - Kelli Hashimoto

“Find the stuff that you enjoy doing. If it's spending time with your family going to the beach, going to museums or parks or whatever, schedule all that stuff in first and then figure out how to schedule all the work stuff around that.”

As entrepreneurs, we can forget that powerful brands are usually a result of many iterations along the way. 

And successful business journeys take TIME.

Matt, Bryan, and Jon dig into this reality ...

“Replenishing, stretching, icing, therapy, sleeping, and the mind frame are important. So for me, you know, even when you’re sleeping you’re training. I really believe it was a 24/7 job.” - Meb Keflezighi 

Today's guest is Meb Keflezighi, arguably the greatest marathoner in US history.

“We’ve been talking a lot about goals and especially North Star goals, big goals. The reality is if you’re trying to achieve a really big goal, you’re going to have to achieve some level of mastery, some level of expertise in order to achieve it.”—Bryan Green

Jon and Bryan take a deep dive into the five levels of mastery, the importance of mental representations, and the power of purposeful practi...

“I can say now, I was really trying to live with intention. That's what it comes down to.  Trying to make decisions based on what felt right, what felt good, and what I think is the right step to take.”

Many admire a life lived with intention, passion, and purpose, but few dare to figure out what that looks like—and pursue it.

Dani Reyes-Acosta left an envied corporate job with Nike to determine how her passions and skill sets co...

“I think ideas are nothing without that grind. And it's the same with running, you can have all the talent, but you have to be able to get through the setbacks that come. Whether that's injuries or poor performance. It’s just being able to keep pushing through.”

“Giving back” is a desirable achievement but something that is not always prioritized.

“I think a lot of times people think, 'Oh, this guy was talented from the beginning. He was crushing and dominating from the very beginning.' And that's not true.
