Dec 31, 2018
Today is the last Monday of the year.
I am grateful you’re choosing to lend a few precious minutes
in this final day of 2018.
As we exit one year and get set to begin another, I reflect on
all the blessings I’ve received by way of this podcast.
Just in 2018 alone, we were blessed to be a blessing, by
sharing the journey of dozens of amazing black professionals with
almost 100,000 people in 112 countries around the globe. We were
also blessed to have a feature on the home page of Apple Podcasts,
and in several other media outlets. For some of you, that
sounds like a lot and for others it sounds like a little. And
that’s fine either way.
But I’m especially reminded that none of this happens, if I
hadn’t gotten out of my own fears just 3 Christmas’ ago and
conducted my very first interview of Donald C. Kelly on Dec 28
2015. I was nervous. I didn’t know if I could be a podcast host. I
didn’t know if people would like my idea, or my approach and
definitely was concerned about people embracing my voice. To this
day, I still don’t like to listen to the sound of my own voice, but
I’m thankful you feel differently lol.
I wanted to wish you and your family a happy new year and
encourage you as this new year begins, to rise above go way beyond
and be ready to blaze your trail. Next week we begin our 2nd annual
Wealth Series. Kicking off that series is Mr. Chris Hogan of the
Dave Ramsey Network. You do not want to miss out on what
Chris will have to share. And this series is 6 weeks long and
packed with gems. So get set to start 2019 off right. Tell some of
your friends and fam about Trailblazers and help them get onboard
with the right kinda mission fuel they’ll need for 2019
So instead of blabbing on myself, I thought we could do
something fun to take us from 2018 and into 2019. So Mike Slavish,
our podcast editor helped us put together this amazing compilation
of maybe 20 of the guests we’ve featured in 2018, sharing their
response to the question we ask all our guests at the end of each
And so here’s their response to the question that I know many
of you probably have memorized now:
What’s one action our Blazer Nation should take this week,
that will help them to blaze their trail …
