You’ll want to tune in today because nobody does this thing called LIFE on their own. We need each other. It’s why the MENTOR is such an important archetype in the story formula and in the stories of our lives. Today we’re going to start a discussion about those special people who show up at the crossroads for us, about the wise who give us sage advice, about the moments those mentors gift us with the perfect magic elixir we need in the moment, and about how we also play that most important role in the lives of the people in our story.
Today I have Dan Davis, the owner and creator of Stiry – stories that stir, with me today. He and his team have told video stories of over 60 individuals and organizations from around the world. From the everyday Joe to the billion dollar CEO, each and every story is a journey of discovery. We get a peak at his story, unemployement, selectively coming up with the right path, and the process he’s learned for peeling back the layers of living to discover your own story and the realization that your life is more than just a list of chronological events. We talk about faith, courage, and creating your life on purpose.
Welcome to the Love Your Story podcast! Where I get to interview people with amazing life stories. Where we discuss tools for living our best life stories, and really often we get both at the same time. Today I bring you Talie Davis Weir from Ohio. She is a life and personal development coach that focuses on empowering leaders to create profound impact centered in JOY. The reason I’ve asked her on the show today is that she has a really interesting life story that involves living in a religious commune, separating out of that community, divorcing her minister husband and making her way into a life of purposeful creation. Listen in for thoughts on removing our masks and recognizing the masterpiece you are.
The VonNeiderhausern family consists of Rachel the mother, Steve the father and six children ages 14 – 4 months. Steve and Rachel have a very powerful way of living – on purpose. They say that sometimes it feels a little weird to buck the cultural norms of not owning a house and putting down roots, but instead of using their money to buy cars and a house and eating out regularly, as much of America does, Steve bikes to work, Rachel bargain shops, they rent a basement in a home in a good neighborhood, and they homeschool their kids.
They then turn around and put all their money into a project called Family Humanitarian where they travel to Africa and South America to help the poor across the world by helping them create better living conditions. This they do with all their kids in tow. Tune in for their story and thoughts on the wealth and poverty matrix.
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.
