business coach business mentor entrepreneur goal setting podcast quantum leaps what drives us May 03, 2021

Over the weekend I watched the documentary What Drives Us by Dave Grohl. It. Was. Awesome. It's a documentary about what musicians have to go through in order to "make it" including living in their vans going from gig to gig. So many great stories from amazing artists like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Metallica, No Doubt and U2 to name a few. Bands of my youth! Today's episode is about the underlying message I took away from that movie. (Which by the way is available on Amazon Prime) Some really great lessons about doing what it takes to make it no matter what you are pursuing!
