Mitchell Chadrow, host of the #ListenUP podcast, reached out to me a little while back asking if I would be interested in being on his show. At first, the imposter syndrome kicked in, “I’m just a sidehustle coach, why would he want to have me on.” “Who’s going to want to hear an hour of me talking.” Realizing that this confrontation was taking place in my brain, I took a dose of my own medicine, jumped in and said yes. I am glad I did. When I have a coaching conversation or am talking advice with anyone, I don’t typically spend a lot of time talking about my own personal story. I should probably have already known that this is a mistake to keep quiet and not share. After all, we’ve learned since we were all kids that sharing is a good thing.
Your story is what connects you to other people
I shied away from telling my story because I figured, everyone has a story, what makes mine so special? Actually, I realized that is just exactly the point! I have a story, you have a story and if we share that with one another, we will find connections that bond us together more tightly than perhaps we could’ve before. Those connections create a foundation for building healthy, deep relationships long into the future.
We are in different chapters of our stories
Maybe someone will hear my interview with Mitchell that is earlier on in their journey, facing some of the same challenges I have faced. While that part of our stories may be similar, I hope hearing mine helps them read ahead a little and know that if they just persevere, chose what they want next and begin working towards it, they can build a better version of themselves. I look to others further along than me on the journey and take comfort that if I just keep pushing, maintain the right intentions, it is all possible.
Sharing is serving
By just talking through my story, highlighting those nuggets of connection and the challenges and triumphs of my path, I am actually being of service to those who are listening. So simple. So critical to building the legacy I want.
While this isn’t an advertisement to go out and listen to the interview, I hope you do. You can find my interview with Mitchell in iTunes and www.mitchellchadrow.com/show030. I hope you find it useful and get out there and tell your story.

Inspirational + Motivational Show
By Jared Therrien
"I started 'listening up' when I heard a few Drexel classmates and professors were interviewed by Mitchell. After listening to their stories, I ended up listening to over 20+ episodes while driving to job sites for my own start-up. Hearing other entrepreneurs' stories and struggles is extremely motivating. The show makes you think critically about your own journey. I have applied the advice learned on this show to my business and will surely continue to listen."

"The Mitchell Chadrow show provides me with a platform to learn about startup stories in an unscripted fashion. Often times, startup content is tailored around a few quick tips for success or a word of advice. The ListenUp Show provides the audience with real stories from real entrepnuers who are answering questions unscripted and on the spot. As an entreprenuer in the wearable health technology space, I found it very beneficial to tell my story and to answer the challenging questions that Mitchell asked that made me think about my business in a different way."

Entertaining and Diverse approaches to Success
By Steve Flocco
"I listened to the first three podcasts from host Mitchell Chadrow, and was both entertained and inspired, by both Mitchell's personality and the diverse views of achieving success by both of Mitchell's guests in the podcasts. I was particularly impressed with Mitchell's guest in podcast #3, Stephen Warly, who's freestyle nonconformist approach to success in his career extending to his life, I found particularly refreshing and inspiring. Along with Mitchell's down to earth personality and easy going demeanor the messages brought in these podcasts are both entertaining and compelling and give listeners insights to reaching one's goals and success. Very much looking forward to the next podcast."
