Today, we celebrate an amazing milestone on the Trailblazers.FM podcast, it's our 100th episode! It's been 100 consecutive Monday mornings, going back to February 1, 2016 that I've been publishing a brand new episode at 5 a.m. In today's conversation, we reflected on these 100 amazing reasons to be inspired, motivated, encouraged, and we are reminded of the mission fuel that's now in the library of past conversations, ready to assist others seeking to rise above and go way beyond in blazing their trails. In this celebration episode, we talk with my wife Kristin Hart who shared her perspective on this journey, having been involved from long before this podcast was created and seeing what it's accomplished to this point. We also talked with our most supportive member of the Blazer Nation, our trailblazer Annette Richards, and this episode would not have been complete without our now #1 Most Downloaded Episode guest ever, Mr. Shawn Dove of the Campaign for Black Male Achievement who is also our sponsoring partner. Hands down, one of the best episodes we've created for this podcast to date. There are so many nuggets of wisdom packed inside this hour long celebration. To our listeners, our Blazer Nation, none of this happens without you. If you decided not to download these episodes, we would not be here celebrate 100 episodes, so THANK YOU. And for all our past featured guests of Trailblazers.FM, I extend my truest HART-felt thank you! Your stories are what have helped to shape the fabric of this amazing platform and inspire men and women in more than 108 countries around the world.

Jeremiah 29 11 -- For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Begin right now, to use the obstacles you've already overcome to show how talented you are, how brave you are, how determined you are, how patient you are, how kind you are, and how strong you are. The curve balls [thrown at you] were there to actually work in your favor. Just don't let the circumstances you've already endured, don't let those derail your dreams and progress. You are great, and today you need to remind yourself of that. Remind yourself that you are worth the fight. Keep pushing, keep believing, and keep showing yourself just how great you are.
Blazer Nation, if there's one rule that we will live by after this first 100 lessons we've got is that Anyone can blaze! Success is defined in many ways. Don't let your background, where you live, how much you earn, or how much you've failed define you. The only difference between you and many of the folks featured on this podcast, is that when life punched them in the gut and then fell on their knees or flat on their back, they got back up. Les Brown says if you fall down, try to land on your back because if you can look up you can get up.
How do you walk boldly in your faith to be able to experience your true purpose and success in life?
Our guest today is Tiffany F. Southerland, known across social media as @TiffSouth. In today's conversation, Tiffany and I talk about the importance of us knowing our story, and how that often leads to the discovery of our strengths.
