Just Get Started Podcast

Just Get Started Podcast

The Just Get Started Podcast is all about the "getting started" moments that people have taken to overcome their fear, anxiety, and self-limiting beliefs and get on the road to a more fulfilling life. The lessons, stories, and insights shared in each episode are little morsels of knowledge that might help you get started discovering your own happiness and pointing the compass in a new direction going forward. Brian Ondrako started this Podcast in 2017 because of the many years he struggled with figuring out his "North Star" and not having the confidence to put out the projects that he loved to create and that might help impact others in a positive way. Through many years of discovery, Brian uncovered that he is a "Navigator" and his mission is to help navigate people to Just Get Started on a clear path toward happiness. He lives his core mission through this Podcast, as an Author, Coaching, and Consulting, and many other endeavors that might allow him to help others live a better life.

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
