YOP037: Blake Soulet – Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings

By June 30, 2015 Podcast Episode No Comments

Bio:
Blake Giovanni Thomas Soulet is a FLY 24 year old millennial entrepreneur that is on a mission to Fulfill Life’s Yearnings. Blake’s dream is to guide people’s transformations by inspiring them to be their best, write the script of their lives to whatever they want it to be, and taking action on their dreams.

Blake, a recent graduate student, with his M.S. in psychology, has always been very inquisitive about the transformations that take place during a person’s life and has been fascinated with why people do the things they do. Those two curiosities fueled his interest to learn, and justify his passion for higher education.

A resident of Michigan, his family moved to Commerce Twp., Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, where he attended Commerce Elementary, and then Clifford Smart Middle School, which is where he was selected to represent the middle school and the state of Michigan at the Jr. National Youth Leadership Conference in Washington D.C., for exceptional 7th graders.

As a result, the Oakland County Board of Commissioners honored Blake with their highest award, a Proclamation, for academic excellence, leadership, and individual accomplishments. At 13, he was the youngest ever to receive that prestigious award.

In the following years, Blake attended Walled Lake Northern High School where he was captain of the varsity basketball team his senior year, graduated with honors, and received a four year, full ride scholarship to Hope College in Holland, Michigan, which is where he received his B.A. in Sociology in 2013.

During those formative years, Blake was given the opportunity to travel the world. He first studied with students from all over the world in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Philadelphia Center, where he had an internship with a renowned entertainment lawyer, and learned that law was not the path for him. He then studied abroad in Paris, France, at the Business and International Affairs program during the fall semester of his senior year, and fell in love with the “City of Lights” because of the experience he had there.

Since graduating college, Blake worked a job that he quit after 7 months because it left him feeling unfulfilled, and has not regretted that decision. Blake always knew that he wanted to do his own thing in life, but nothing really compelled him to do so until the horrible experience at his job, and the reading of Tim Ferriss’ book, The 4 Hour Workweek. Because of those two moments, he was pushed over the edge to make a choice, and took action to live life according to his own terms, and has been following his gut ever since.

After he left the job, he began embodying the phrase, “Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings” (also known as FLY), which is a phrase he coined during his spring semester in college in his senior seminar course. He then created his own company, Blake Soulet Group, LLC., started doing youth motivational speaking, and became an author.

In April of 2015, he started his new journey, The Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings Podcast, which allows him to inspire everyone to Fulfill their Life’s Yearnings after listening to his personal message and the interviews that he has with other millennials that are writing the script of their lives and taking action on their dreams.

Zephan: What’s going on, everyone? Zephan Blaxberg with another episode of the Year of Purpose podcast, and today I’m joined by Blake Giovanni Thomas Soulet. And Blake is a fly twenty-four year old millennial entrepreneur that is on a mission to fulfill life’s yearnings. Blake’s dream is to guide people’s transformations by inspiring them to be their best, write the script of their lives to whatever they want it to be, and take action on their dreams. In April of 2015, he started his new journey, the Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings podcast, which allows him to inspire everyone to fulfill their life’s yearnings after listening to his personal message and the interviews that he has with other millennials that are writing the script of their lives and taking action on their dreams.
Blake, welcome to the Year of Purpose podcast!
Blake: Zephan, thanks for having me on! It feels great to be here right now, and I’m just ready to get on the conversation and start changing peoples’ lives!
Zephan: Yeah, man. So basically, you reached out to be on Twitter, you found the podcast and you were starting to check out some stuff that we were doing, and of course I had to check you back and see what was going on in your life and I found that you have a podcast too that you just got off the ground. And we’re both in our mid-twenties, we’re kind of in the same place in life where documenting this journey that we’re going on. And I think the coolest part is I interview all these people who are so-called “experts” and I think it’s great to finally bring someone on who’s kind of with me in the process, at this same place, you know, we’re just a step ahead of a lot of the other people, and it’s great to say that we’re not really experts. We’re just here enjoying the journey and showing people what it’s like to do it, right?
Blake: Right. I mean—and you’re right on with that message. It’s kind of like being a rolling stone, kinda taking something and starting it and starting this to make progress and figuring it out as you go along. You know, the thing for me, why I wanted to start the Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings podcast was the simple fact that, as you were saying, there’s so many experts out there, you know, and we only get to see them at the end of their journey, and that’s all fine and dandy but I think there’s a lot more people like us, the millennials, out there who are saying “Okay, I see that you’ve made it, but…what was your actual journey like? What were you going through?”
And so for my show, whereas I know I can talk to so many different, you know, older, more wiser people than myself, I find it so much more valuable to put on kids that are my age who are already maybe just a step or two ahead of me so I can actually get them before, what I call, they reach their greatness because they’re also going through the journey. And it’s just so much more cooler and relatable to see that from somebody who—you know, right now, I’m only twenty-four years old, and to be talking with someone like you who’s also still in my same age group, and just to see, “Well, he doesn’t have it all right now but he’s making progress towards that” and I think that was something that was missing from the sphere of having so many different voices saying “You should do this” or “You should subscribe to this methodology” to get to where you want to be in your own life. Whereas I like coming on my show and saying I don’t have it all figured out right now, but I’m gonna keep on making progress. I know I’m gonna make a ton of mistakes, and that’s just the cool thing about life. You’re supposed to make mistakes because that’s the only way that you’re gonna be able to figure out what works best for you.
I could give you a prescription saying that it’s supposed to help you fix a certain thing, but unless it’s geared specifically to where you are in your life, it’s not gonna work. so that’s why I feel it’s so much more valuable right now to kinda get people on their way up so you can kinda see their transition through life as well.
Zephan: Absolutely. And so I’m super stoked just to have somebody here who’s kind of with me in the process. Something that you said about people’s greatness. I have a mentor of mine, she lives nearby, I’ve had her on the show before—her name is Misty Burmeister, and she just finished making a book called provoking greatness and her whole thing that she explains is, you know, the greatness is already inside of you. It’s something you already have, it’s just something that has to get pulled out. So I want everybody listening just to like preface this whole conversation with you already have this inside of you. The trick is figuring out how to bring it out.
Because we look at these experts and people who it looks like they have it all together and that it just happened overnight. They went to sleep one night and said “Tomorrow I just want to be a millionaire and I want to speak to a thousand people all over the world and that’s my life.” And the truth is it took them years to get them there. and we’re very fortunate that in our age group, if you’re close to us in age, you have so much time, whereas a lot of these so-called experts out there, they wasted twenty or thirty years running a job or a business they hated before they actually figured out what they love. So I think we’re probably at a really good point in life where we can hit the reset button right now and still have our entire lives ahead of us to be able to do what we really want to do and I think that’s just so cool for us.
Blake: It is. It is. I think that’s what makes our opportunity, being born in the generation, which makes everything for us so possible. I mean, even as a country, we’ve gone through so much living in the United State and to be position that we are in right now, we don’t have to be okay with working a job just to get by and then praying and wishing and hoping that maybe one day somebody will grab us by the hand and say “look, this is what you could be doing.”
We are now, in this generation, we can all come together collectively and when you feel called to do something that, you know, makes you happy or excited when you wake up in the morning, even if you’re not making money from it. Which is really not my biggest goal. I’m more concerned with “Is what I’m doing fulfilling?” and there’s plenty of things that a lot of us can do, because I’m sure that most people that are listening in to this have some sort of skillset, but if that thing isn’t gonna wake you up in the morning on time and it’s not gonna drive you, then there really isn’t a point to doing it. Because that’s just gonna be a continuation of the cycle.
And I can remember vividly waking up in the morning for my job and, you know, I like to read a lot. And one of the things I was looking at was the commencement speech that Steve Jobs gave. And he was talking about if you’re gonna wake up in the morning and you don’t like the person that you see in the mirror on a day to day basis, then change it. Don’t complain about it, don’t whine, don’t say “I wish it was like this” or make up all these excuses like it’s not the right time or you should wait until something better comes along—those are just things that people will say to you or maybe even your own voice will say to you to try to keep you where you are in your comfort zone. Because we’ve been brought up in a society that’s a little bit afraid of change. No one wants to be that one guy or girl who decides to say “You know what, I really don’t like what’s happening right now. I might get ridiculed or laughed at or called names, but I’m gonna do this thing because this is what feels right to me.”
So I’m there with you about us having this greatness inside of us already, but now the main thing is just, like you were saying, getting it out of us. Sharing a gift with the world. Because even if we’re afraid, there’s someone else who’s probably ten/twenty/thirty times more afraid than we are. And if they can see us make our mistakes, then they’ll have the confidence and start to develop the grit and the mindset to say “You know what, they’re doing it. Why can’t I?” and that’s the simple question it all starts with. Even when I saw you. “He’s doing that… Zephan’s doing his own podcast and I see his own journey. Why can’t I do something like that?”
So I think it’s so powerful for what we’re doing here. Because at the end of the day, even if it helps one person—you helped me. And so if I can inspire that courage in somebody else, I think that’s a job well done and I feel good going to bed at nighttime just thinking about what I can do the next day to continue on this process and on this journey.
Zephan: I want to be really clear that this is not a selfish thing. I know when we talk about it, sometimes it comes off as “It’s your life, it’s your choice, it’s your thing to do!” This is so not selfish. This comes out of what you, like you said, what you want to give to the world. This is what you’re giving out to everybody, so don’t get caught up in thinking that it’s selfish to want to live your life on your own terms. And I think it’s really important that we start with looking at the why. Why did this happen to our generation? Why do we get stuck in this place?
So let’s talk maybe a little bit about—personally, I think that the reason why we got here is our parents lived in a time and a place where you grow up, and if you weren’t going into the military to go to war, you were going to get a job—which you had to go to college for. So basically you grow up, you go to college, you get a degree, you get a job, and then what happens? Well, you’ve got to figure out your retirement. You eventually find someone to get married to, you have kids, you grow the family. Eventually you have grandkids and your retirement goes to them when you die. And—that’s part of the process, don’t get me wrong, you’ve got to have a ritirement. If you want kids, that’s great. Having a family is amazing. I’m not saying you shouldn’t do any of that, but let’s start with this why of why did we get here? Because this was the time and age for our parents and what was okay for them, and so obviously, just like with religions and cultures, you pass down what you’ve learned and what traditions, so to speak, you have to your kids.
And I think that it’s important that we look at this. So just various to hear from your perspective, you know, why did we get here and why is our generation so stuck? Because my buddy, Adam Paswalski, who is, I think, our number four podcast interview, we wrote the Quarter Life Breakthrough and when he wrote Quarter Life, the whole point was you’re a quarter of your life. You’re in your mid-twenties somewhere. And this is kind of an epidemic in a sense. All of us in our mid-twenties are getting here and we’re like “Alright, so I went to college. I did that whole ‘get a degree’ thing. I did that whole ‘get a job’ thing. And now I’m miserable.” Why?
Blake: I think the reason for that, coming from my experience, just watching my parents—and I love them and they provided a great life for me, and I also have a younger brother who’s in college right now and he’s enjoying it. Which you should enjoy college if you’re gonna go there. But just watching what’s been happening to them over the past couple of years. This corporations beginning to layoff employees and not really caring much about them. They only care about you when you’re at work. And when things start to happen, you get sick or personal issues begin to happen, then they’re just trying to find out how they can get rid of you as quickly as possible. And that’s not to say that happens for all people who work in corporations and a lot of people do have good jobs doing those and I think a lot of them have a job which they actually envision themselves doing, which is fine.
But for a lot of folks, the had the same ambitions that our generation has to do something that they feel passionate about, but somewhere along the way, the dollar signs were thing that’s ringing in their head, and they took the…I would necessarily call it the easy way out just to get something quick, instead of like maybe going on a path that’s been less traveled and seeing what you can make of this thing that you might happen to like. See where it takes you. And so from that perspective, just seeing what they’ve done and what they’re trying to do now. I even talk to my parents about what I’m doing and they’re thrilled by it. And so I have the conversations with my mom and, you know, she loves to do fashion, home designing, and things of that nature. She’s very artistic. But that’s not the job she’s been doing for the past thirty/forty years. Nothing in that spirit at all.
And so just from seeing her trying to make that transition to doing what she should’ve been doing all along? I think as a child, you start to see that, man, even though they had these great jobs or whatever, it was something that did not fulfill them. It was just bringing in money. So from our generation, we see this happening, and we don’t want to be tossed aside by corporations or companies that are only about the dollar amount and could care less about you as a person and what’s going on with your own family life. And we want to—from our own perspective, we want to change that. We want to come together and do things that are bigger than us.
At least that’s how I see it from the other kids that I talk to that are our age. They’re more interested in fulfilling a purpose, if you will, as far as sticking to some that—you know, whether it’s music and they love doing that. They want to make music. Or maybe it’s writing books or even playing sports. I have a friend from high school who is probably one of these most dedicated basketball players I have ever seen. And he doesn’t have the height, you know, he’s five-seven. And for him to still continue this journey that he’s been on, gosh, for the past ten/eleven years now, and still sticking to that what we loves, regardless of what’s happening around him because he feels so passionate about it, I think that’s what so many of us want. We want to be able to be so passionate about something that we don’t care how long it takes. Just got through that journey and make the most of it.
And with the position that we’re in, that is so possible right now. Because, you know, I met you through podcast! Now someone else who shares values that I share and is passionate about helping other bring the best out of themselves, it’s just so much easier now to connect with that why. Why are you doing something? What’s getting you up in the morning? And this is to be able to start with that, with what’s your why and what you’re doing. It just seems like it’s so more powerful to communicate with that than to communicate what your job is. So I really think our generation is starting to notice that we have so much more to offer and we really just don’t want to go through the same heartaches that our parents went through in the generation before us.
Zephan: Absolutely. You brought up a lot of really good points there. Real fast, because this is cool and I think everybody’s really liking what we’re saying so far, let’s do this—because you found me over Twitter, and this is something I actually haven’t told people to do before. So how about this, everyone who is listening or watching right now, I want you guys to tweet at us. So my Twitter handle is @ZephanMoses—Z-E-P-H-A-N-M-O-S-E-S–@ZephanMoses. Blake, what’s you’re Twitter handle?
Blake: My Twitter handle is @BlakeSoulet. So that’s B-L-A-K-E-S-O-U-L-E-T.
Zephan: So if you guys like what you’re hearing right now, and if you’re either in the same boat as us, if you’re looking for help and you want to reach out to us, send us a tweet right now on Twitter or head on over and find our Facebook pages. But Twitter is exactly how Blake found me. It’s how I find a lot of people, and I just want to make it really clear that we are no different than you. We are just as reachable as anybody else is. We are the guys who are seeing those emails, each and every single one, when it comes in. we are the guys who are looking at those tweets when they do come in. we don’t have giant teams of people who are looking at this and responding as if they were us. This is us and this is real right here. So just take a second, pause the episode, jump to Twitter, tweet at us, follow us, and let us know either, A, what you think, or B, what we can help you out with right now.
Jumping back into the episode, though, I think that you have a lot of really good points. And we’re at such an interesting place where we have so much control now, and it’s one of those things that people feel like they are spinning out of control. They feel like they have no control over their life. And the truth of the matter is if you sit down and write out the script of what is going on in your life right now, just like a movie—tell me everything from financial to your personal relationships to your business or even your job right now. Just write this all down and write a section, Financial, and just sit there for ten minutes, whatever you can put there. Here’s how much I make, here’s how much I’ve saved, here’s how much dadada. Just write down for what is happening right now.
And then once you have that whole thing written out, go ahead and write another one. Ignore the one you just wrote. Write each section name but what you want in each of those sections. Consider your wants and needs. Be mindful of…I want a yacht or a million bucks but do I need it? No. so keep in mind your happiness. What do you want in each of these categories that is going to be a reasonable way to live your life? And this is exactly what you and I are going right now. We’re kind of scripting what it is we want our lives to look like and the greatest thing about these podcasts is this is the documentary of us achieving it and knocking things off our goal list.
So let’s jump into talking about goals and things we want to achieve, maybe just since January of this year. So it’s May of 2015 right now. It’s the end of May. We’re almost halfway through the year now. How about, Blake, what’s something that you really wanted to achieve since January that you knocked off the list?
Blake: The biggest thing that I wanted to start was doing my podcast. Because before, I had this sort of perfectionism complex. I wanted things to be so perfect that I actually got stuck and I couldn’t make progress on my goals because they had to be done the right way, the right amount. But at the turn of the year, I thought to myself “There’s so many other people out there who are able to move forward even with mistakes.” And the one thing that really made this idea start springing in my mind was just looking at apps for the phones. Those apps, the reason why they come out with so many updates is because they’re always working on improving them. So I figure if they’re doing that for the apps, I can do that for myself as well, and I really just took it one day at a time.
And I like what you were saying about writing down all the different categories about what it is about what you want to reach. So kind of like what you were saying, what I did for myself is I took down—you know, a piece of paper, wrote down “Number one: I want to have the Fulfilling Life’s Yearnings podcast out by…this date.” The original date I wanted was April 13th on my birthday. So it didn’t happen that way, but I was working towards that goal. And then I said “Okay, well how do I make that happen?” So I started with the end in mind, and I said “I want to have a podcast on iTunes that comes out every day.” Okay, how do I make that happen? What’s the step before that? Well, I got to record episodes. Alright, so how—in order to record those episodes, what do I need to do before that step? And then I wrote it down and etcetera.
And for me, I found that so helpful to start with the end in mind and work my way back down to what the first step would be instead of going one step up the list. Then your mind starts—for me, I started thinking of so many different things that could happen along the way. So I just took every single step on there and looked at it like a topic sentence for a paper. So if you’re writing a paper or whatever, for each paragraph, you gotta have one sentence that the topic of that paragraph is gonna be about. And just leave it at that. Don’t go into all the details about trying to say “Well, I’m gonna do this three times a day or five times.” No, just focus on what the main topic is and you’ll figure out the rest of the stuff along the way.
Because I think sometime we might get into the habit of trying to plan everything out to the exact time and date and all those other things. Those are good things to keep in mind, but I found that they can overwhelm you. so that for the show—for the podcast, something else that I wanted to work on was just really getting out of my comfort zone and being able to actually talk to other people about what it is that I want to do. For some reason, I was just so afraid to share what my message was or what it is with other people. Maybe because I thought they might reject me or laugh at me or something like that. But also just working on getting out of that box and reframing my mind, that’s what I like to call it. Just reframing my mind to think “It’s not about me and what I’m doing but just trying to meet as many people who want to do better things with their lives. And I think that’s a majority of people.
So just—those are two of the big things that I really wanted to do this year. And so I’ve bene doing those just fine. I make mistakes [cut out]. I’m definitely learning through this entire process and it’s like even doing this interview with you is a first for me and I’m loving it. That was also something that I wanted to be able to start doing on the podcast as well. So this is—even though it wasn’t something that I had written down that I wanted to happen. Today, I knew in my mind that if I just keep on progressing every day and start reaching out to other people organically, things will begin to happen. The thing I really noticed is that you don’t have to force anything, really. Just keep on going on on the path that you want to take and as you go along, different opportunities that you didn’t even think of will being to happen for you. And I’ve noticed it. I’m sure, Zephan, you’ve noticed it too, doing what you’ve been working on, and I think that’s just so great about our goals.
Because with anything that you’re gonna have, you just always want to be flexible. Because the goal that you came up with at the beginning of the year could evolve and take you on a completely different direction that you’re in. now here we are in May. So just always come up with whatever idea you want in the beginning and just go through it. Again, be that rolling stone and see what transpires and just be flexible enough and aware enough to be able to make changes to where you need to so that ultimately still ends you up in the same direction you wanted to go on.
Zephan: Exactly. And it’s funny how when you finally open yourself up to what it is that you really want to do, that the world just kind of gives you everything that you need. And it’s weird how the world just takes care of you. And you explained in really good detail how you overcame the obstacles once you figured out that you wanted to do a podcast. Breaking it down—and this is something that we’re actually, from the Year of Purpose podcast, we’re gonna give everybody a really cool opportunity in the near future here to jump into a thirty-day program. It might be longer, we’re not sure yet, but with the ability to rescript exactly how Blake and I are doing thing. So I’m really excited for what the future holds.
My big this for this year was I wanted to travel more. And so today, it’s the end of May, and…I’d have to log in to look at it, but I think I’ve taken like fifteen or sixteen flights for the year so far. And the best part is I haven’t paid the two/three/four hundred dollar tickets that you think I have to get there. So just like you, my goal was I want to travel more, and I broke it down. I was like “Okay, where do I want to go?” and I listed out the places I’d love to go to and I was like “Alright, now how do I do this?” So a big thing for me was I don’t want to pay the two/three/four, sometimes five, hundred bucks a ticket just to go somewhere.
So I started doing research and I found this thing online called Credit Card Churning, it’s completely legal. You’ve probably actually done this without knowing. If you have a credit card, you get these things called rewards points. And it’s just like how if you get the Amazon—I have Amazon’s card and I get rewards points I can use to buy stuff on Amazon. I always learned that I could get Southwest Airlines or American Airlines and all these different airlines I could get credit cards through them and start racking up rewards points for spending money. And I’m already running a video business, so I’m already spending a good amount of money on things, so I taught myself and I did the research that if I can play this credit card game of racking up sky miles on the cards, I could travel for free! And it just came to breaking it down and realizing, “Okay, I want to travel. Where do I want to travel? Now that I know where I want to travel, I need to figure out how I can get tickets. Well, I can’t really afford all these tickets, so how do I find a way to do this cheaper?”
And Google is your best friend in this. This is one of the things I tell people. This is why our generation—this is probably one of the reasons why our generation is in this place. Is that we can now google stuff. We don’t have to sit there in math class and try to figure out what X is if one corner of the triangle is this and the other corner of the triangle is another number. We don’t have to, we can google it!
And so breaking stuff down, I got to a point where I was able to travel. I’m pretty sure it’s fifteen or sixteen flights this year. So like five weeks ago, I was in Las Vegas for five days. Four weeks ago, I flew up to Boston for one day. Three weeks ago, I was in San Diego. Tomorrow, I’m leaving for Virginia to spend four days on a private lake. And all I paid for these plane tickets to get to these places was the airline taxes, which was like five or six bucks a ticket. So you can imagine I’m basically paying about eleven bucks round trip for a flight to wherever I’m going. And this is something everybody can do. I encourage you to look it up. There’s tons of different ways of going about it, so I don’t want to sit here and teach out to do it because we’d be here until the end of next week.
But if you guys want to travel, like if that is your dream or your passion to travel, find a way to make it happen. Break it down into these simple steps. And it all goes back to what I always say, is if you’re not figuring out what the answer is, you’ve got to ask a better question. It’s kind of like in—I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the movie I Robot, but basically the creator or inventor of the autonomous robots is, so we think, murdered by the robot and we can’t figure out why, but he leaves behind this hologram of himself that can actually talk and interact with people. And Will Smith, the main character, is like—walks up to him and says “Why did you kill yourself?” and the hologram kind of replies “That’s the wrong question, I can’t answer that.” And I’d like to think that that applies to our life. In that we’re just asking the wrong questions and when you start to ask the right question, you start to get better answers and things start to kind of work themselves out. And what do you think about that?
Blake: Yeah, Zephan, I think you’re so right on with that. Because we can’t spend a lot of time, you know, kinda going on asking ourselves the same questions that people before us did. The quote that I always look back to is “Observe the Masses and do the opposite.” So I think that will fall in line with going at it different. Because if you’re still asking yourself the same question and it’s getting you the same results, that’s the definition of insanity. And the sooner that you’re aware that that’s what’s going on and you can begin to ask yourself, as you’re saying, something different that might move you forward, the better off you’ll be. So I think you’re definitely right on the money with that one.
Zephan: Yeah. And so I think that a lot of people will probably come away from this episode still thinking “What is my passion? What is my purpose?” and it’s the wrong question. You need to start asking “What gets me up in the morning? What is it that when I talk to people about it, my eyes widen and I don’t shut up about it for the next three hours?” You have to start asking questions like that and that’s where you’re going to start to figure out that’s kind of where the magic starts to happen.
So I’m super excited for where things are going for both of us this year. I really love this concept that we’re both a big fan of descripting your life and this is something we’re gonna see a lot more of, both here on this podcast, on your podcast, and I think a lot of our age group and the next generation that’s coming up right now.
Let’s go ahead and round this thing out with, had a lot of great conversation here today, what is the best way for people to find out more about what you’re doing, where your podcast is, maybe some links to check your stuff out and where they can follow you online?
Blake: Yeah, definitely. So I’ll start with the Twitter handle again. That’s @BlakeSoulet, so you can find me on there. I’m also on Facebook, just Blake Giovanni Thomas Soulet. And then you want to check out my website as well, it’s fulfillinglifesyearnings.com.
Zephan: Awesome. So definitely check out his podcast. If you guys were listening today, this was kind of a different episode with the way our conversation went, and I really enjoyed it. So I want you guys to, A, if you haven’t already, subscribe to both my podcast and Blake’s podcast, but, B, leave us a five start rating and a comment on the page telling us what you liked the most about this because all of that really helps to show other people that we’re giving out great content here, we’re having good discussion, we’re trying to make a change in the world. So every subscribe, ever like, every little shout out you guys give us on Twitter, we really do appreciate all of that.
And Blake, thanks so much for being here and hanging out with me today.
Blake: Man, Zephan, thank you so much, you know, for reaching out to be to be on here. I had a blast doing this and I would even love to do this again in the future. This was [cut out] to connect with someone else who is also trying to make a dent in the world and provide all the value that they can. So I really love what you’re doing as well on your own podcast and I just look forward to seeing how both of us begin to grow over these next several months and years.
Zephan: It’ll be exciting. We’ll definitely have to come back twelve months from now or something and see where things have gone and to let people know that this is what happens when you set then intention for the dream that you want and you choose to live it.
Blake: Yeah, absolutely.
