A former professional ski racer and Olympian realized her destructive self talk was practically ruining her life. If we stop clinging to things that are not permanent, learn to take control of our thoughts and adapt to change, it’s pretty amazing how much happier we can be. Libby Ludlow retired from the U.S. Ski team […]
Stories of outdoor active professionals, entrepreneurs, CEOs and athletes who are pushing boundaries and redefining how we do life and business: on our own terms.
Our story impacts how we show up in the world. Think about that. You might think you don't have an interesting story to tell but you do. We don't have to be founders of tech giants and global brands. We define what success means to us and we live it. By doing things that fulfill us while striving for more and kicking ass, but having fun along the way. We fill our lives with adventure (another word we get to define for ourselves and not compare to others) and we push ourselves physically and mentally, to overcome obstacles that make achievement that much sweeter.
This show is for us. Listen in and gear up for what's next:

“Letting go of the tendency we have to want things to be different, allowing things to be as they are and allowing yourself to be as you are…” Jon Kabat Zinn on the mindfulness. I began a meditation practice almost two years ago. I had always been curious about meditation but I had been experiencing, […]
I wanted to have Janette on the show because she has come up in conversation about three previous episodes, all by guests mentioning Janette as a huge influence on them. For example, that’s Ash Bocast of Roam Events in the teaser quote at the top of the episode. Before even talking to her, it was clear she subscribes to the idea of women supporting each other and lifting each other up. Although we look at this through the lens of the mountain bike industry, it’s a great metaphor for life in general.
I am so excited to have this awesome and inspirational woman back on the show to talk about trail running in Europe. Rene Unser is a running coach and race director for a fantastic race series in Western Canada. She is now on the communications team for the Gore-Tex Trans Alpine Race, a race she […]
One of the many reasons I do this podcast is because it gives me the opportunity to speak to people who are living their version of success; defining how they want to do life. Brendan Leonard embodies this perfectly. His message is a reminder to each and every one of us pushing ourselves each day to be better and to do better, that there is joy in every day.
I worked very hard not to fangirl this interview. I hope I succeeded, but I was curious about a lot of things. First, of all, if you have not seen her and Jessie Diggins’ Olympic gold medal finish, I encourage you to check it out before you listen. It is off the hook dramatic and awesome!
Today we’re going to talk about ego and what fills that ego. For some it’s mountain bike racing, and for Amanda, it was. for awhile, until it wasn’t. And then one day, she decided she wanted to be the “bike Oprah” and she tweeted about that, and became integral to a huge bike giveaway. We discussed how one can use giving to fill a hole, perhaps the hole created by leaving racing.
