Today you are joining me for an interview with Mark Shurtleff the former three term Utah Attorney General. In June of 2014 Mark was charged with bribery and corruption charges as the Attorney General. His home was raided by the FBI and as the next two years evolved until the criminal case was dismissed in July of 2016 there was quite an ordeal. If that’s not enough his story also involves a devastating motorcycle accident that involved 15 surgeries and a fight against cancer. Our discussion today is not about politics. Our discussion today is about the human side of struggle.

The Hero’s Journey has a specific plot structure, but it also has a repeating cast of characters, known as character archetypes. Archetypes tell us the role a character plays in the story. Thinking about the characters in your story – or the people in your story as these pivotal characters adds a bit of a perspective shift that often provides clarity in your story. Join us today as we talk about the Heralds in your story and what adventures they are calling you on. Let’s consider if you are accepting those calls to adventure or if you are stuck in a spae of fear of discomfort. Do you answer your Heralds with a YES or a NO?
