Making Elephants Fly | Conversations with High Octane Leaders, Dreamers, & Creatives

Business & Economics Podcasts >

Making Elephants Fly features conversations with High-Octane Leaders, Dreamers, & Creatives hosted by Terry Weaver. Terry is a speaker, author, and ideapreneur who has invested his life in others to giving them the tools to live life alive; whether through helping others see their dreams become reality, traveling around the world challenging young leaders to change the world, leading teams of people to do more together than they could alone, or hanging out with Mickey Mouse. Over the last 20 years, Terry has spoken to hundreds of thousands of young leaders, worked with entrepreneurs to take their idea from a thought around the fire to a six-figure business, and partnered with creatives to expand their platform from their garage to the stage of the Grammy Awards. On some episodes, we will be sitting down with a New York Times Best-Selling Author, a Disney Imagineer, creative leaders from organizations like Cirque du Soleil, an incredibly successful business leader, or sometimes an entrepreneur just getting started and trying to get their dreams off the ground. Above anything, our greatest desire is to help you discover your passion, unleash your purpose, and start doing the work that you have been created for. Our hope is that it feels like you are pulling up another chair to the table with us and grabbing a cup of coffee and listing in on the conversation.
