Episode 103: Lit Within!

May 11, 2018

What does it mean to be "Lit Within?" Last month we tackled the spiritual aspect of what it means to be "woke," and in May we focus our attention on "lit." If being woke is all about raising our consciousness, being "lit" is what it means when we take action.

In Episode 103 of The Weekly Yes, And Podcast - Travis looks at the idea of being "lit within." This podcast is also in partnership with Inspired to Give - where you can explore how others are finding inspiration that leads to action. With the help of some friends - Travis explores what it means to be "lit within" - and poses some questions to help each of us blow on the embers of our own flames.

Episode 101: Stay Woke!

April 24, 2018

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!




Episode 100: Flint Town, March For Our Lives, Yes And!!!

March 30, 2018

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!
