2 years ago, almost to the day, Greg and I had an experience that changed our lives and our business forever. We want to show you a glimpse into that journey with a special guest.

In this episode, I’m introducing you to a very good friend, Grant Chugg, who shares how a single “yes” helped him find a purpose that is larger than himself and changed the trajectory of his life. 

What’s more, he helped Greg and I say a Yes that changed our worlds too and was fundamental to the business we now operate. In this episode, you will hear about something very close to our hearts and an experience that changed us forever.

Join Grant and me as we look back at our profound moments in Africa that opened not just our minds but our hearts, as well.
