I usually schedule more than one guest per show because I don’t like to be stuck in the studio talking to myself. This Sunday was one of those solitary days where I had no one to talk to and my preparation time was wasted, which left me feeling pretty down. Lashing out at people was my normal way of dealing with situations like these, but I’m learning not to take things personally and looking to improving myself is a tactic I’ve used to help me in my dealings with others.
We all have relationships; some mean more to us than others, whether it is with a family member, friend or romantic partner. The theme behind this show is self-evaluation and improvement of said relationships. Specifically, what are your flaws and how do you plan on improving them? Why?
Who can’t benefit from honest self-evaluation from time-to-time? My challenge to you is assessing your flaws and making a conscious plan to improve them on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Challenge yourself to become a better person—your peers and the people who look up to you will notice — I am certain of it.
Patience, punctuality, and controlling the tone and pitch of my voice are some of the immediate goals I want to work on. In the long-term I have fleshed out plenty of goals, including: becoming more financially stable, earning an MSW (and maybe a PhD), saving for my son’s college, traveling to Africa (and many other places), starting my own non-profit, buying a home in Chicago… it’s a really long list. I encourage you to write down your goals and discuss the plans you have in respects to strengthening relationships. I need your help family.

A little over a week ago I was asked to be part of a show, I was warned that this wouldn’t be the usual stand up shows that I was used to. I was asked to open for a Utah State Senator. Why would I be asked to open for a Senator? Because this particular Senator is doing something very uncommon for utah. This Senator is Mark Madsen and he is sponsoring a medical cannabis bill Senate Bill 259.
I did the show and had a blast performing, but then was enlightened on the bill that Senator Madsen is trying to pass. I think what he talked about was important and I wanted to get more involved. After the show I asked him to be on this podcast, and we were able to set up an interview.
So here is that interview I talk to Senator Madsen about the medical cannabis bill he is trying to pass, his personal connection with medical cannabis, and what people can do to get more involved in the passing of this bill.
Thanks for listening and supporting both me and the show.
Huge thank to my producer Sascha Blume and the Earwhole Media Network.
