As older people, we can be extremely hard on our youth. For some reason, it's always been like that. Sometimes, it's hard for us to sit back and just listen to what they have to say.

This summer STW Center for Excellence held an incredible youth camp for 2 weeks that was free. Everyday guest speakers came in to encourage and teach the kids about their careers and passions.

I was lucky enough to be a speaker on the last day of camp. I spoke to them about podcasting, self confidence, and ignoring negativity.

The camp director, (my wife :-) ) made a wonderful video to summarize the entire experience. The link is below, check it out! Thank you for listening, and we hope to see these kids next year!

While I'm working on the new season of shows, I want to give as much content as I can. Thank you for your patience, I really think you'll enjoy the new direction of the shows.


This is a new show called "Everybody's Got A Story" It's a space where little to no editing is done while someone tells a story, shares a thought, or just opens their heart up to us.


More to come, I hope you enjoy.
