#WeGotGoals is a podcast by aSweatLife.com on which we talk to high achievers about their goals - some they've already accomplished and some they're striving to accomplish in the future. After writing about goals and sharing stories from some very impressive people, we discovered something we didn’t anticipate: asking people about their goals – past and present – gives them an easy way to share their story. And by asking others to share something they were proud of accomplishing and saying something they wanted to achieve in the future aloud, we reinforced two principles we’re passionate about: recognizing your accomplishments and going after what you want. And just writing these stories didn’t seem to do them justice anymore. It seemed fitting that these inspiring people share their journeys themselves, using their own voices. And thus, the #WeGotGoals podcast was born. This podcast is hosted by Cindy Kuzma, Maggie Umberger and Jeana Anderson Cohen of aSweatLife.
