Podcast

Today’s episode is a follow-up to a previous episode with my dad, Gary Ervin, that really resonated with a lot of you out there. After sharing key life lessons he’s learned over the years, he’s back to discuss how to find your “why,” and why it’s so important to figure that out before you figure out the “how.”

Listen in as my dad shares how he discovered his own “why,” as well as what drives him to keep climbing mountains and pushing himself physically and mentally. You’ll learn his simple, strategic writing method for finding what drives him, what he learned from his experience falling into a crevice while hiking Everest, and more.
