This past week I had the pleasure and privilege of appearing on Ever Forward Radio, a podcast hosted by Chase Chewning focused on people who are putting a purpose to their passion. Ever Forward is a brand that Chase and his brother Maxx have put together, and I’ve been following them on Youtube for years.
Chase is an Army Vet and a certified health coach, but he and his brother really strike the right balance of maintaining health and strength, while being active and still living life fully.
As many of you all know, I spent 20 years in the military, and then worked for the Department of Defense as a civilian. I had my military retirement and after my bout with cancer I found myself in a job a didn’t really love.
I had been building my writing and speaking career on the side, but even though I was not enjoying my full-time job, it was HARD to give up the comfort and convenience of that steady paycheck.
Big life changes like that can be scary because you are making a leap in the unknown, but over the years I’ve been truly inspired by guys like Chase and Maxx as well as Nick and Preston Bare. Chase and Nick are both military vets who got out of the military without the benefit of a pension, and now they are doing amazing work building the jobs they love. What was my excuse for not pursuing my dream? Without knowing it, these guys helped me make the jump.
It was truly a treat to get to talk to Chase, and we covered all kinds of topics, including enlisting in the military, health and fitness, my book Three Points of Contact, setting and achieving goals, as well as keeping a journal.
Check out the full podcast above, on Apple iTunes, or anywhere else you listen to your podcasts. And while you’re at it, leave them a five-star review 🙂
As Chase and Maxx say, live a life ever forward.
