Health & Wellness Podcasts

The Hard Thing podcast is focused on helping people improve their lives by learning how to do hard things. It's more than just another personal development podcast or self-help podcast. This podcast is really about helping you overcome your challenges and adversities and accomplish the achievements that, deep down, you know you want to do, but maybe you don't believe in yourself enough, or you're just scared. Listen as I interview guests who have overcome average by doing hard things. Each of us has to go up against difficult challenges, but it's not the challenge that defines you. It's your overcoming of the challenge. I'll extract the methods used to do hard things so that average people like you and me can replicate their success. I have episodes released every Monday and Thursday talking about how to lose weight, how to get out of debt, how to find a better career, how to get stronger, how to develop better relationships, how to find fulfillment and so many more questions. We want to give you actionable insights into improving your life. Join us on the journey to become the person that you know you should be. Join us doing hard things and overcoming average.
