MLK Day Special, with Aldis Hodge

If ever there were someone who turned Failure into Opportunity, it was Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. Today, to honor him, we've brought back guest Aldis Hodge to talk about faith, apologizing for just being (and how to overcome that), how success is measured by the imprint you leave on the world and the importance of having the humility to let those around you shine their light as well as the boldness of allowing yourself to shine your light.

Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.

It is not the critic who counts. If you’ve been knocked down... get up, dust yourself off, and get back in the arena. If you want to give back, share this with someone who could use it and leave a 5-star review on Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen, so more people find this show and benefit from these conversations.

Art Williams, Influencing with Dopeness in the Black Community

When you're as stylish and classy as Art Williams, you can get away with an Instagram handle like @thedopeinfluencer. But survival was the only thing on Art's mind in the first twelve years of his life. Well, survival, football and, eventually barbershops. Now a staple in Portland's black community, Art is not only the owner of a successful barbershop that is extensively involved in charities and programs that help minorities level up, he does double duty as the personal barber to former 10,000 NOs podcast guest, Actor Aldis Hodge. A former professional football player, Art travels back and forth from far-off sets not allowing them to prevent him from being a major influence of stability in a formerly challenged community. When he's not busy cutting hair, he is constantly inspiring others to exceed the expectations of their given circumstances the way he did.It is not the critic who counts.

Love Requires Vulnerability But So Does Toughness

When my friend and past guest Matt Long, one of the toughest guys I know who has been through more than most humans should go through, dropped by to speak to the 10,000 NOs Insiders Community at the end of January, he shocked the group. Expecting this former New York City firefighter turned Ironman turned Near-Death Crash Victim turned Speaker/Author to come in beating his chest, all the members were shocked by his central topic: Vulnerability. Despite popular opinion, being vulnerable doesn't make you "soft". The ability to show vulnerability is a sign of strength and the key to everything from relationships to parenting to career success.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 "No"s... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.
