Joe Johnson went from marketing/PR coordinator at the Spokane Convention and Visitors Bureau to Salomon’s outdoor marketing manager in the Americas in a span of seven years. He went from driving his car until it had no gas and staying there until he got his next job, to traveling around North America for a very […]
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:
Today’s episode will change the way you think about thinking big and what success really is. Dan Abrams had an idea. He didn’t know how it would happen or what would come of it. He took calculated risks, he made backup plans in case of worst case scenarios, he overcame “down-on-his-luck moments,” and didn’t think […]
Hi, everyone, the Gear Show podcast is back after a month break and I’m excited. We took some time to refuel on some great interviews and fascinating topics such as living on free breakfast burritos to finally land the dream job and dream life, how to be a dirtbag shopper, and being a sustainable adventurer. […]
If we’re being honest, which I always am, I have no desire to do a half or full Ironman. My friend Celeste finished hers in June 2016 and I was at the finish cheering her on. Her first words to me when she exited the finish chute: That sucked. It confirmed for me that my best […]
Research by Adam Galinsky, a professor at Columbia Business School, found that immersing yourself in a country outside your own can prompt mental change, including increased creativity. Creativity is related to neural pathways and influenced by daily life, including your habits or surroundings, The Atlantic reports. Experiencing new things can create new connections in the […]
Today’s episode is going to give you gear barn envy and if you are a Type A kind of person, you will love the way Jeff Thompson plans his summer camping trips. I’ll give you a hint: lists, lists, and refined lists (based on experience). I don’t know about you but it never fails; I […]
Today’s episode might change the way you think about hydrating. I think I’d rather be hungry than thirsty. There are different degrees of both, so I can’t say this with certainty. But I remember a time in elementary school we went on a field trip and at the end of the day, I was so […]
I often wonder how the professional athletes make the foul shot when the stadium is thumping. Or how they drive the golf ball on the cutthroat round of the Masters Tournament. Because my version of that foul shot is hopping into a new business client meeting, or the moments before a webinar starts, or I […]
Get psyched, have fun, do the thing Today’s episode will show you the importance of focusing more on your nervous system to perform better and to live more optimistically and fully. Last month I interviewed Dave Leffmann, physical therapist, soon to be published author, and good friend and mountain playmate about his philosophy on being smart […]
The best piece of gear we each have is our bodies. And I want mine to last. I want to be that 80-year old woman who’s still skiing (just like I want to be that 80-year old couple in the park in Paris.) Every single time I find myself out running, skiing, mountain biking – […]
