This Is Your Life™ Podcast

My Weekly 30-Minute Show

This Is Your Life™ is my weekly podcast dedicated to intentional leadership. My goal is to help you live with more passion, work with greater focus, and lead with extraordinary influence.

This Is Your Life Weekly Podcast

I would also suggest that you use a podcast application on your iPhone or Android phone. I use Downcast. Another popular one is Instacast. Both are the same price.

These applications make discovering, subscribing, and listening to podcasts so much easier. The biggest advantage is that you don’t have to load iTunes on your computer, subscribe, and then manually sync to your phone. You can do the whole thing from within Downcast. They also automatically update your podcasts every time a new episode is released.

If you want to ask me a question about an upcoming topic, please visit my podcast question page. Each week, I try to answer as many questions on the show as I can.
