Eating Crow


Episode 42: Chris Grainger

Season 2, Ep. 42

Chris Grainger is on a mission.

It's no ordinary mission.

Chris is a fisher of men.

Chris is also a husband, a father, an employee and a 2x podcast host.

Chris has dealt with loss, the kind of loss most people can't relate to. Seriously, we just can't.

Chris and his wife turned it into a mission - how to help other parents deal with loss and the grief it brings.

Often this grief spirals into despair, poor choices and a dark path.

Chris created The Lion Within Podcast to help men face and conquer the demons that can distract them from being men of God, husbands and fathers.

In a short time this podcast has attracted a following and more important, followers.

He's extremely soft-spoken, but like EF Hutton, when he talks, you should listen (Google that :-)).

Key Takeaways for Leaders and Entrepreneurs:

  1. Side hustles can enrich your team
  2. Podcasts are an important part of your go-to-market strategy
  3. Pay attention to what your people are dealing with at home

Chris's Eating Crow Moments:
