In Episode 104 of The Weekly Yes, And Podcast - Travis urges everyone to stop competing!
No, not stop trying, or striving, or pushing yourself beyond your limits. Instead, stop comparing yourself to everyone else. Stop trying to make yourself look better by making or hoping someone else looks worse. Stop turning life into a competition, when most of life is a collaboration.
Travis shares examples from his recent work with a major football program, as well as a Major League Baseball team - and helping their coaches shift from a compeititon to collaboration mindset.

In Episode 101 Travis does a solocast in conjunction with our friends at Inspired To Give. Spring is here! Renewal, rebirth, and reawakening. Not only is there a physical transformation taking place as nature comes alive - we have seen how there is a societal, environmental, and spiritual awakening happening as well!
This awakening is about raising our individual and collective consciousness. It's about being Woke!
Yup, I realize as I use that term I have officially made it uncool. It's just lost any hipness it had. But, the spirit of what woke stands for is all about elevating consciousness in a way that makes us more aware, motivated, and intentional about the choices we make.
You want to get woke? Listen to the podcast!

This is Episode 100!!! A monumental episode for a production team of one. I started this podcast as a way for me to share my views and ideas of what it means to live with a "yes, and" mindset. And, I wanted to share the stories and inspiration of others living a life of purpose and passion, who demonstrate a "yes, and" mindset when it comes to dealing with adversity and struggle.
For Episode 100, I went home. I was born and raised in Flint, MI - though I haven't lived there in over 20 years. But, I travel to Flint often to do work and see family. For this episode, I returned hope to speak at the GearUp2Lead Conference for the 3rd straight year, as well as doing three other talks during the week. While in town I stopped in for a Euphrates event at Powers Catholic High School, and attended the March For Our Lives rally in Flint.
There could not have been a more appropriate place to celebrate episode 100!
