Finally able to share my conversation with the great Tony f’n Robbins

If you don’t know who he is, I’m thinking he’s probably the number one inspirational speaker ever, or something like that. See below for more info.

To me, the takeaway is to learn to live for today. To forgive yourself and others, and move on to the next moment.

Great interview on our new podcast platform talkcastPDX.

I believe you’ll find Citizen Smith (Ken Smith) entertaining and educational. Check us out at and get the app!

I will have my own show, Against the Grain coming along soon. Stay tuned.

An interview with two young documentary filmmakers who journeyed to Ethiopia to document the lives of four women living on a coffee farm

Listen Here

Newly transplanted to Portland, 22-year-old film director Celia Boussebaa, and 23-year-old Chris Hausler, director of photography, share their experience shooting a documentary for 3 months in the Sidama region of Ethiopia, profiling the lives of four women living in a rural village of coffee farms and washing station.

We are moving forward with our endeavor, TalkcastPDX

Which will be a free-speech (no agenda) podcast platform. My show will be called, Against the Grain, and will focus on overcomers and go-getters. I’ve actually been a little surprised at the response to my post asking for stories – there are so many good ones. So I know the show is gonna rock.

I recently was a guest on one of the other shoes that’s already featured on our platform, Citizen Smith. Check it out here:

Well, this is cool.

I’ll be on live with Clyde Lewis Saturday. This is our marquee show on the new talkcastPDX platform.

My own show, Against the Grain, is in development and I’ll keep you posted. I’m looking for guests who have overcome major difficulties and have learned valuable lessons, particularly business folks, but I’m open to ideas.

Please tune in Saturday. I bet it will be good.
