Everyone told Chris he was crazy when he quit his perfect gig at Google, leaving a pile of money behind. He put his first investment on a credit card and trusted his gut all the way to the bank. Twitter, Uber and Instagram are just a few of the gems Chris spotted before they were on everyone's radar. How did he do it? Why did he do it? He shares some of his gold in this episode.

The unknown option in the 2016 Presidential Election. Evan McMullin just recently entered the race. Evan, former CIA operative, decided to run for president late in the game in order to stand up for what he believes. He's a 40-year old counter-terrorism expert that has a unique POV to share. Regardless of your political beliefs and mine, it's inspiring to witness someone who asks themselves, "Why Not Now run for President of the United States?" at the 11th hour in order to give voters another option. Is it a long shot that he'll win? Yep. Is it possible though? Yep. And it's quite honorable in my humble, patriotic, opinion.

Kathryn Budig is an OG yogi, if ya know what I mean. She was teaching yoga before it was cool and trendy. She's an incredible athlete and her list of accolades goes on and on but what I admire the most about Kathryn is that she's the real deal. She has zero ability to fake anything. She tells it like it is and shares her struggles just as much as her moments of joy. Whether you're a yoga fan or not (I'm personally not a huge yoga enthusiast) you can learn from Kathryn's wisdom.
