#Firestarters - How I Begin My Day featuring Dan Waldschmidt

#Firestarters – How I Begin My Day featuring Dan Waldschmidt

I knew this morning was going to be a different interview from the others in the series because of our guest Dan Waldschmidt. I have known Dan for many years and appreciate the energy, commitment and enthusiasm that he brings to everything he does. When his book Edgy Conversations: How Ordinary People Can Achieve Outrageous Success was released, Dan sent me a pair of boxing gloves to go along with the book. I thought it was only fitting to leave the firehouse for the day and get out to the boxing arena for this interview. I also anticipated that Dan would be willing to explore some additional conversation beyond the questions that we are addressing in the #Firestarters Series and he did so with his typical style and wisdom.

Dan shared lots of golden wisdom nuggets throughout the session, so listen to the whole thing with a notebook and pen by your side.

We also had several other guests jump into the hot seat throughout the second half of the show, so watch the entire broadcast to see who else pops in. It was a fun morning and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

This is a replay of the live broadcast with Miles Austin, Dan Waldschmidt and a bunch of friends including Tim Ohai, Kira Moore, Keenan, IrreverentSalesGirl, Leanne Hoagland-Smith and others.
