Episode 48 – Year one


episode-48_-year-oneThis is the first full-length solo episode as a weekly release for the We RAD DADS podcast. Now, I thought long and hard about releasing this episode but I think it’s time to recognize just how far we have all come in the past 31,536,000 seconds.

I hope my overview of the last year gives you all hope and allows you to see what you can accomplish with the right frame of mind, resources, networks and purpose.
