A Bit About Justin
I have always been curious and, as my wife calls me, “nosy”. I have rarely been shy to ask questions that some think to be a bit more probing than most people are willing to ask. And I must have a gift because very rarely has anyone said, “I would rather not answer that question” or “that’s none of your business!”. The truth is that I am just genuinely interested to see what makes people tick, and that authentic desire to learn comes through.
I have learned that most of what makes someone tick is not something that comes out in their regular, day-to-day conversations and interactions. Most of us need some probing questions asked that make us think to get to the core of what is most important to us and what and who have made us the people we are today. Then, when we see that more clearly, we can see where we want to go tomorrow so that we leave a legacy or words of wisdom for those who come after us.
My goal with the Journey Through Life Podcast is to give a platform to ordinary people, like you, to share your stories - the good and the not-so-good - with me and the listening audience. I want to learn from the wisdom you have learned and earned in your life. I want to get to know your most influential ancestors and others in your life through you. Then to get to understand what you want to leave behind in the form of wisdom and principles as you become an influential ancestor to your posterity as they go on their own journey of life.
