This podcast, as always, is designed to spark inspiration and motivate towards living the life you dream of. In the past 3 months I’ve interviewed some great online entrepreneurs, authors, artists, and athletes who have all shared their struggles and successes.

I have learned from and enjoyed each person I’ve interviewed – and I hope you have too.

Here, 3 months in, as I think about why I started Go For It in the first place, I remember that it is precisely because of the inspiration I have always found in interviewing people who work hard, live their passion and find a level of success that enables them to keep following their dreams.

The kind of interviews I’m talking about I’ve been privileged to conduct for years before starting Go For It Show, and today I’d like to share a few tidbits from some of the more recent favorites.

Among the fun and entertaining anecdotes, these bands have advice and relevant experiences that will speak to all aspects of business and entrepreneurship.

So sit back and have a listen.  These are some amazing and talented folks and you’re sure to find this show not only enjoyable but also useful. Fun stories and great advice from Imagine Dragons, 311, Fitz and the Tantrums and AWOLnation.
