I sit down with longtime friend Rolf Kramer, Director of Business Development from Techtonic, Inc.. We talk about lessons learned during competitive mogul skiing, his Udemy course "The Art of Being Found", being a mentor, being a fat pig with a small mouth, and the lesson learned from his mom about how big can you make your funeral.
Listen Here:Rolf's course on Udemy - the lessons transformed my LinkedIn and professional profile:

I sit down with longtime friend Piep Van Heuven, policy director for Bicycle Colorado. We talk about the mission of the organization, Denver Streets Partnership, the Green Wave in Denver, Idaho Stops, Vulnerable User Law, bike advocacy and how it's not anti-car, and the work to make streets safer for everyone - while balancing different interests. And of course, chocolate.
Longtime friend Deahna takes me through the story of her son Grant, being born needing open heart surgery, surviving that, and tragically dying from a feeding tube accident at 11 days old. We talk about his death, and becoming a patient safety advocate, taking a Griefcation, and how she forgave the nurse that killed him.
Deahna also walks me through using medical malpractice not for financial compensation, but to direct positive procedural change to save lives - and experiencing the results and impact of her work firsthand.
We are releasing this episode on April 8, Grant's birthday.

I can't write a summary of this episode and Mike's story.
Mike has ridden across the country on his bike twice. The first time after beating cancer. The second time, after a heart transplant, to meet his donor's family.
I won't do it justice. Mike's words, and the writing of A.C. Shilton is perfect.
