Happy 1ST Birthday TLR Podcast! And what better way to celebrate our 52nd episode with one of the world's foremost authors & speakers, the one & only Jon Acuff! He's a husband & father, NYT bestselling author, INC Top 100 leadership speaker, host of the All It Takes Is A Goal podcast & CEO of Acuff Ideas. He also likes to run, build Legos, eat chips & queso and evangelize the world about the benefits of CrossFit!
You're like, "John, this is incredible...how did you land such an amazing guest?" I'm so glad you asked! Before I launched the show, I was on one of Jon's virtual events and of course, I paid for the VIP experience. When it came to Q&A time, I knew exactly what I was going to ask him: "Jon, what do I need to do to get you as a guest on my upcoming podcast?" He said to reach out after recording a years' worth of episodes and that became one of my main goals for the 1st year of TLR: land Acuff for episode 52!
Long story short, after an amazing connection from previous guest Grant Baldwin, the date was set and the rest is history!
The episode is absolutely packed with insights & humor as Jon opens up about life in his 30s and how he transformed into who he is today. (HINT: It wasn't a lightening bolt moment that changed him. Rather, a gradual flock of "aha's"...you'll get it when you listen).
We talk about the challenges of growing a business while maintaining a focus on marriage & family. His thoughts on the "hustle culture" content we see all over social media is absolutely brilliant, you won't want to miss it!
And best of all, he's got a book ready to drop next month!
