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 show: 
 
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 …
