The Upward Spiral

The Upward Spiral

If you're tired of hearing fluffy and shallow motivational talk skims the surface and does not do anything for you then we can relate. On the Upward Spiral Podcast Davin Marceau (Army Ranger turned COO) and Cody Strate (Sales and Marketing Guru) set their egos aside, and openly discuss their professional and personal failures and success stories. They take on difficult topics and bring a no BS attitude in directly addressing what people really need to hear. Achieving meaningful growth is not an easy process, and Cody and Davin are not selling any quick fixes here. Rather, they focus on helping people form the foundational mindset needed to accept failure with grace, learn from your mistakes, recalibrate your approach, and redeploy with greater wisdom, grit, and determination to achieve transcendent growth on the professional and personal level. The Upward Spiral Podcast is just real stories and unmitigated truth being delivered so you can effectively pursue meaningful growth. After all, in the game of life there are no participation trophies. A WORD OF CAUTION | We are not for everybody, and that’s okay with us.

The two words "toxic" and "positivity" are fundamentally juxtaposed. However, they converge all too often in our personal and professional lives as manifested by the people we see on social media that go to great lengths to present a façade of an ideal life that's not realistically attainable without copious monetary resources and effort. We also see this in our professional lives by leaders who's theme song...

One year ago we were just getting started with our podcast, and frankly we had no idea what we were doing. We simply put ourselves out there and learned as we went. At no point was there any grand master plan other than the very simple goal of putting our thoughts and ideas out to the world and seeing what the world had to say about it.

We had no idea that people would even find what we were doing interesting. We thought it was just...
