045 - Angela Shen, Founder & CEO of Savor Seattle Food Tours

This week’s guest is Angela Shen. Angela is the Founder and CEO of Savor Seattle Food Tours. Our paths crossed many years ago when we used to get together for these semi-regular brainstorming sessions with a half dozen or so CEOs of local tour companies. We would get together at a coffee shop or over breakfast every couple of months and talk through challenges that we might be having with our business and others would have input. I was always in awe of how focused and directed Angela was...


044 - Health, Nutrition, Toxins, Supplements and Lab Results

Today I share the results of my personal lab tests. It's a look at about 150 bio markers as tested and interpreted by sports nutritionist, Chris Talley. This is an intimate and, in some cases, surprising look at my overall health, what I'm lacking in my diet, what I can do to improve my nutrition, what's looking good and some alarming (toxic) results that need to be cleared up.


043 - Runner and Race Director Sabrina Seher

Sabrina Seher lives by the motto: Find Your Super. And that she does each and every day all while inspiring others to do the same. Emerging from what she calls a dark place, she managed to come bursting out so that she could set an example for her two children and so that she could be an inspiration to others. Sabrina is a marathoner, ultra-marathoner, race director, owns a workout studio and manages a group of marathon pacers. Yeah, she's pretty super, alright.

In this episode I deconstruct how I ran four marathons in four days during the Seattle Quadzilla over Thanksgiving weekend.

#029 Being Bold with Your Food Choices over the Holidays

I take time out this week to provide some perspective (and tips) on how to make healthy food choices over the holidays. With so much pressure to eat (often unhealthy) comfort foods with family and friends, it takes Being Bold to say "no" to food (and drink) that aren't good for you. These tips can easily be used for travel as well!

Shannon's discovered the importance of owning her own story and narrative and, through storytelling, encourages others to do just that.


#027 Congressional Candidate Mona Das

Mona Das is running for Congress in the 8th District of Washington State. This is no ordinary candidate. Mona challenged my perception of Indian women as well as politicians. At 5'1", Mona is a powerhouse of strength, motivation and opinions. AND, she has a heart of gold. We covered a wide range of topics far outside typical political conversation. It's her ability to be honest with herself and others that I believe will appeal to her voters (and listeners of this episode)!
