Today, I’m republishing an episode with my dear friend, youth advocate, internet crusader and incredible human, Collin Kartchner, which was originally recorded in April of 2018. I’m putting this back out in the world with a little bit of commentary and whole lot of love.
Collin’s message and mission touched hundreds of thousands around the world as he taught parents to connect with their kids in this digital age, fought against the dangers of social media and spread the joy of 8 second hugs. I will never know the reason he was taken so soon, but I will continue to be inspired by his passion and support his mission in every way I can.
He wanted parents to wake up to the dangers that surround our kids and families. No one will ever fill his red Nike shoes, but I have listed below some accounts and organizations who are also spreading messages of hope and healing. I’ve also linked to Collin’s 2018 Tedx talk and his podcast. Please get educated and inspired and let your voice be heard. This is a fight worth fighting! #savethekids #savetheparents #forcollin.

Today I’m republishing my most downloaded and popular episode over the past 2 years. It was also my very first remote interview, so the audio quality is not the best. I tried really hard to clean it up for you, because the content is really great.
I’m interviewing an old friend and super successful public figure in the fitness community, Steve Cook. Steve is a coach on this season of The Biggest Loser on USA Network, so I hope you will all tune in and watch along with me. Steve talks about his biggest failures, picking up the pieces, struggling to find balance and his philosophies about motivation, losing weight and getting healthy. He also talks about insecurities, critics and how he tricks himself into getting a workout in.
You can find Steve Cook on Instagram, YouTube or most other social media channels @stevecook. You can also watch him on The Biggest Loser or find his app, Fitness Culture on your mobile device.
