How does your story shape your present? Do you have a story you want to tell? Where have you felt a deep sense of welcome lately? When have you tried to join a group and clearly weren’t welcomed? Story and welcome shape our present in dramatic ways and this week’s podcast helps us think about them in fresh ways as we move and live in our communities.

Terry’s guest this week is Michael Yoder (Twitter link), founder and creative director of Truth Work Media. Michael is the former co-host of the wildly successful 37 the Podcast. Michael helps people tell their stories through podcasts. His company produces podcasts like April Diaz’s The Global Fringe, Dr. Amber Selking’s Building Championship Mindsets, Brian Levenson’s Intentional Performers, and Dan Dietrich’s Future Obsession (a music discovery and review podcast co-hosted with Michael). 

The TedX talk by Simon Sinek. Get Simon’s book START WITH WHY (Amazon link).

You can pick up a copy of Terry’s latest book, THE SELF-AWARE LEADER (IVP, 2017).
