39: On Sacrifice and Thankfulness

6/12/2017
More
It's Monday! Time for a little motivation. What would you be willing to sacrifice to achieve? I read an incredible story over the weekend that I wanted to bring on the show that is a powerful lesson in humility and thankfulness for all of us. Be sure to check out the rest of the incredible photojournalism I referenced on the show over at GMB Akash's website. Thanks for tuning in!

38: Stay the (Golf) Course

6/9/2017
More
Oh man, I CANNOT GOLF. It is SO FRUSTRATING. I know you've felt similarly when making Dares. When trying something new or uncertain and something doesn't go your way (maybe repeatedly), it can evoke any number of negative feelings. It can get you upset. It can piss you off. It has for me, at least. And one of the toughest pills to swallow is the realization that, when setbacks occur, you just need to stay the course and you will come out on the other side. You'll learn. In my case, the...

37: Get Lost on Your Own Trail

6/6/2017
More
I had a map, a compass, a plan, five very smart friends -- and we got lost five minutes in. That's the story of my hike in Yosemite. Or, I should say, hikes -- as it happened twice. But as we bushwhacked deeper into the forest with neither a trail nor cell service, I made a note in the back of my head to draw a parallel between getting lost on a hike and making Dares. You might be surprised as to how similar the two are. Thanks for tuning in! If you like what you hear, subscribe and leave...

36: Small Stuff University

5/30/2017
More
If you're like me, your Facebook and Instagram accounts are currently being flooded with graduation photos from friends and family. Today's episode is the story of a graduation (and a Dare within) you likely didn't see -- that of Albert Alan. Albert has taken an incredible journey from living on the streets to leaving the University of Arizona with three degrees and a plan to return to the streets as a doctor for the homeless. Read more about the incredible story of Albert Alan...

35: A Steady Drive

5/26/2017
More
Picture this: you're on a long drive through the desert to Yosemite National Park. You know the destination; you're excited for it. But the drive gets boring -- two, three hours pass, and it can seem like nothing's happened. It's just the same with our Dares. Sometimes we can be held back by the perception that our efforts are getting us nowhere, and that can lead to intervals of crippling inaction. In today's episode I stress why consistent output and effort is superior that operating in...

34: Don't Worry, Be Happy, Vice Versa

5/23/2017
More
To date, I've positioned Dares as similar to leaps of faith into new ground. Those who accomplish have the ability to thrust themselves into the spotlight for the feats they achieve. But how far does it go before the need for happiness outweighs the need to succeed? And are the two really so different? I'll discuss in today's episode. Thanks for tuning in!

33: Ready to Romp

5/22/2017
More
It's one month until summer, and that's right guys -- it's...romper season? The new fad has taken social media by storm over the past month by way of the RompHim: the romper made specially for men. Believe it or not, I've actually managed to tie the RompHim to the To Dare is Human mentality, so strap in and learn how the team behind the clothes implemented a tactic necessary for getting any Dare off the ground. Check out the Kickstarter for the RompHim here:...

32: Relinquishing Royalty

5/18/2017
More
On today's Daily Dare I relay a story about how Dares don't have to be about achieving personal financial or artistic success, but rather can be purely for the purpose of achieving personal happiness. Japan's Princess Mako has Dared to find just that; listen in to hear how. Thanks for tuning in! If you like what you hear, subscribe and tell your friends about it.

31: Dares on Deck

5/17/2017
More
On today's Daily Dare I explore William, whose passion for skateboarding led to his ultimate decision to depart from a more traditional career and start his own skate brand, Last Try. Having just happened upon this story myself, I hope to have William here on the show to share more about his experience. For now it's a great lesson in preparation and timing in terms of when to make the jump -- for William, Last Try's recent launch was born from his labors and interests carefully cultivated...

I headed to Vegas last weekend, and...let's just say I didn't come out a winner. But it did get me thinking a lot about how we perceive luck, and so thought to take a few minutes to discuss. Enjoy!

27: Wonder Women: Alexa Buckley, Sarah Pierson, and Margaux

5/4/2017
More
Welcome back to Wonder Women! This week we have the story of two incredible up-and-comers in the world of footwear, Alexa Buckley and Sarah Pierson, as they've made their Dare to conquer the creation of the perfect flat (and heel -- they've just launched it!) through founding Margaux. The three of us share a common inspiration for igniting our passions into actions, and also happen to have spent extended periods in heels -- me to a much lesser extent, but not a nonzero one. More on that in...

26: Gashaw

5/3/2017

We lost a great person at the end of last week, someone we can all afford to learn to be a little more like. To support Gashaw's family in this trying time, there is a GoFundMe memorial. I encourage you to help however you can. We'll be back tomorrow.

5/1/2017

This past week, I attended a Q&A session as part of Sheryl Sandberg's tour for her new book, "Option B." I thought it taught some super valuable lessons on resilience, and so what better topic for a Minisode Monday? Enjoy! You can pick up "Option B" on Amazon here. Thanks for tuning in!

In just a few days on indiegogo, they've cruised past their goal of $30,000 by just a little bit -- and have now raised over $400k. Check out Hannah's story!

In this impromptu minisode, I chat about the absence of episodes this week, how it relates to preparation and silver linings, and how that in turn relates to a Dare. Enjoy, and we'll back with more on Monday! Find out more at To Dare is Human. This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

21: Wonder Women: Kristina Saffran

4/5/2017

Another week, another Wonder Woman! This week, I'm chatting with Kristina Saffran, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of Project HEAL: Help to Eat, Accept and Live. Kristina's Dare has been in the works since the age of 15 when she co-founded Project HEAL while in treatment for anorexia. That year saw a successful fundraiser generate $10,000 for the education and treatment of those with anorexia and other eating disorders (which are terribly under-funded). These days, Kristina is...

19: Wonder Women: Madeline Smith

3/29/2017
More
Wonder Women is going strong! And this week I'm proud to be chatting with someone I knew well while considering my own Dare into performing arts which I ultimately leaned back from. This Wonder Woman in particular, Madeline Smith, did not back down from her dream of pursuing the spotlight. Today, she's got the distinguished honor of being the youngest-ever female to conduct in a Broadway orchestra pit as part of the team for "Waitress," a musical led by an all-female team headlined by...
