Today I’m speaking with writer, creator and instigator Kyle Creek, a.k.a, The Captain. "As a kid, I wanted to be a cowboy. Then, my mom bought me a skateboard and I got on with my life. In college, I decided copywriting was the career move for me and, for the last decade, I’ve held a variety of creative positions both in-house and within agency settings. I’ve also published five books, spoken at events around the country, and educated the masses about shark dating as the host of “Shark Sex 101” for Discovery Channel’s ever-popular Shark Week series.

Taking Control Of Your Day w/ Jake Knapp

We are approaching the end of another year. A year I’m sure that was mixed with ups and downs but we are here, in this present moment, together taking time to fuel and train our minds. This I’m incredibly grateful for.  It’s also a time of year where we naturally slow down and have more space to reflect. I wanted to share the most popular episode (#36) from the podcast of all time - Taking Control Of Your Day With Jake Knapp. It’s fitting for this time of year as Jake leaves many great insights and practices that can help as you go through your reflection.  Two great journaling prompts: Does this feel right in my heart? If I was going to die in a year, how would I spend my time? Jake Knapp is the author of Make Time and the New York Times bestseller Sprint. Jake spent 10 years at Google and Google Ventures, where he created the Design Sprint. He has since coached teams like Slack, Uber, 23andMe, LEGO, and The New York Times on the method.  He’s also working on The Highlight Course coming in January 2020 to help people make time for what matters every day! Thanks as always for listening and have the best day yet!⠀++Special props 👇Producer & Editor - John BalderstonMusic: Clouds - Joakim Karud

As the development director at the Movember Foundation, Mitch Hermansen is passionate about Men's Mental health and is using one of his own mental fitness practices to raise awareness and funds for men's mental health. -- This year my goal is to raise $5,000 for men’s mental health. To do it I’m going BIG, being a bit bold, and getting preeeetty cold...! I’ll be swimming 8km in the Pacific Ocean. I’ve never swam that far; and for context, when I moved to Vancouver I could barely pump out 12 laps in the pool. Regardless, Im going for it. It will take me about 2.5 hours to complete. Why am I doing this? Well, I never got to meet my grandfather. He died by suicide when I was only a few months old. To this day I often wonder what I missed out on. What I could have learned from him. What memories could have been made with my grandfather if things had been different. So this is for him. With 3/4 of all suicides being by men, it’s unfortunately not an uncommon story. Poor mental health is a killer, and it’s hitting the men in our lives. I want this swim, and my moustache, to be a symbol that gets people talking about it. Please donate if you‘d like to help me reach my $5000 goal.

27 | Taking Out the “Self-Doubt” with Sarah Holloway

Lawyer turned funtrepreneur Sarah Holloway says it best. I wouldn’t say I’m the best candidate for a “short bio” because I’m not only a serial rambler but also an overenthusiastic life lover with too many interests, passions, career changes, personal transformations, lifestyle revelations, adventures, hopes and dreams for one single lifetime. I nonetheless do my very best to squeeze in as much goal-kicking, ground-breaking and memory-making as life permits and I’d say I’m best summed up by my overarching life philosophy – “seize the yay”. Sarah is the co-founder of Matcha Maiden & Matcha Mylkbar and is flat out AWESOME! Enjoy the chat!
