• Summary

  • If you are a leader or an entrepreneur this podcast will speak to you (well, I guess that's the point). These are stories of amazing people with the courage to lead and often admit they were wrong and challenge long-held beliefs to make change. Many of these everyday heroes have evolved into leaders and entrepreneurs, and most of their stories have never been heard, until now. Pete Durand interviews people from all walks of life - the military, finance, business, sports, government and education. We learn from their challenges, pitfalls, lessons and how, by eating crow, how they used an open mind to adjust their way of thinking and lead others, including their families. Pete adds his own experiences as a husband, father and entrepreneur in this meaningful if not hilarious podcast.

    Guy and Jane Harvey are a super couple.

    Their story floored me and I consider it an honor to know them.

    Guy had a stroke in 2016 - how it happened is unique, he was a fit dude.

    What happened after is the stuff of legend.

    Jane, his girlfriend at the time, stepped in, and up. We all need a Jane in our lives.

    While Guy's stroke is a big part of their story. His recovery journey and their marriage are the main event.

    Guy works hard, he's dedicated, but Jane is the engine that keeps this marriage running. She's the rare combination of passion, love, compassion and determination. These two are not to be underestimated.

    They now run JGH Rehab. Notice that it's Jane Guy Harvey Rehab. Jane's name is first, for a darn good reason.

    Their goal: to help others recover from the debilitating effects of a stroke.

    It's brutally hard work. It takes a long time. And it takes the right mindset in the survivor and the caregiver(s).

    If you need a bit of inspiration or life perspective - this one's for you.

    Sonnie Linebarger is intimidating...

    ...in a subtle "I eat nails for breakfast" sort of way.

    I've been following Sonnie for some time and when she agreed to be on the show I had an idea of where I wanted to take the episode...I was wrong.

    Sonnie is complex - wife, mother, seasoned and successful business executive.

    She's also a life-long learner.

    This really stayed with me during the episode - she's obsessed with, well, evoking greatness - first in herself, then others.

    She's registered nurse (in a PICU none-the-less, I've seen that first hand...wow) and spent years leading a hospice and palliative care organization.

    That's next-level compassion.

    Sonnie just left her corporate gig and is now out on her own, evoking leadership greatness.

    Sonnie is one of the sharpest people I've interviewed (that's a high bar).

    She's also a supermom and now an entrepreneur.

    Stay tuned.

    Chris Grainger is on a mission.

    It's no ordinary mission.

    Chris is a fisher of men.

    Chris is also a husband, a father, an employee and a 2x podcast host.

    Chris has dealt with loss, the kind of loss most people can't relate to. Seriously, we just can't.

    Chris and his wife turned it into a mission - how to help other parents deal with loss and the grief it brings.

    Often this grief spirals into despair, poor choices and a dark path.

    Chris created The Lion Within Podcast to help men face and conquer the demons that can distract them from being men of God, husbands and fathers.

    In a short time this podcast has attracted a following and more important, followers.

    He's extremely soft-spoken, but like EF Hutton, when he talks, you should listen (Google that :-)).

    Key Takeaways for Leaders and Entrepreneurs:

    1. Side hustles can enrich your team
    2. Podcasts are an important part of your go-to-market strategy
    3. Pay attention to what your people are dealing with at home

    Chris's Eating Crow Moments:

    1. Facing loss meant facing himself
    2. Grief is different for everyone
    3. We are not the only ones dealing with this, how can we help others?
