Welcome to the Solgood Media podcast. A podcast that explores the nature of our human experience. Each week we have a new guest on the show and we talk to people about what it is that drives each of us to do what we do. What is it that gravitates each of us towards our passions?
It can be quite a process figuring out what drives each of us as human beings. Is it the desire growth, understanding? A search for purpose? Financial freedom? Or maybe just the desire to create?
Whatever is at the heart of what is driving us it is going to gradually pull us through each moment and get us closer to what it is that we desire.
When I was growing up I had a lot of ambitious dreams and a strong desire to learn new things. I would spend hours and hours perfecting my craft whether it be a guitar chord or a half court shot with a basketball. I still have a strong desire to learn and grow and I always get excited when I meet people who are doers, people that get stuff done, and not only have ideas but act upon them and lead other people by example of what is possible.
Over the next two weeks on the Solgood Media Podcast you’ll be learning more about the stories behind these two girls and the journey that they have been on. We’ll talk about their different businesses and how they got started in the first place.
Bea (age 16) and Gretta (age 13) are sisters and they have completely blown me away with the amount of entrepreneurial endeavors they have taken on at such young ages. They’ve seen success and have already faced some challenges that lead them to shutting down one of their business’s that was just starting to take off.
I wanted to tell this story from a few different perspectives and that’s why I decided to break this story into two different episodes. The first one, which you are currently listening, to is with Kevin who is Bea and Gretta’s father. I called Kevin up the night before my podcast with Bea and Gretta we talked about what it has been like navigating the waters of being a parent in the 21st century.
I just want to say that I had loving and supportive parents growing up who really supported and challenged me to do what I was called to do (shout out to Nancy and LeRoy you guys continue to inspire me) . Even though I was never specifically told what I should be doing, I was supported in whatever I decided to work towards. And here I am running a podcast which is a media channel that I never would have expected I’d be interested in. Yet as I’ve allowed the desires to manifest and realized my inherent gifts of genuine interest in growth and understanding I’ve had over 60+ intentional conversations about what drives people to do what they do.
If you are listening to this podcast It doesn’t matter how old or young you are. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what your backstory is. When you decide you want something and you believe you can do it. Anything is possible.
