083 I Stressful Career?  How Service and Family Can Help You Ground with Bart Richards

I have known Bart Richards for almost 20 years. In an industry (high tech sales) that breeds stressed out, transactional relationships, Bart stood out as a genuine and grounded example of what is possible, even under pressure. We were both in sales in the storage industry (Bart in NY/NJ and me in the DC Area) when 9/11 happened. Our particular industry “disaster recovery” shot to the top of everyone’s priority, and it needed to be fixed yesterday. It was at that time, Bart announced he wanted to “give back” and became a fireman, while excelling at his job and raising his family. Join us as he recounts that journey and shares what service and family have done to both ground him, and fuel his success.

082 | Bonus Episode: The Profound Freedom Found in a Self-Forgiveness Practice

Confession.  Atonement.  A fearless and searching self-inventory (AA).  Religion, 12 Step Programs, and self-help are full of exercises helping us take stock and finding forgiveness with the help of others or a higher power.
