Have you ever felt like the odds are stacked against you? Have you ever felt like the challenges and obstacles were too great for you or your family? Unfortunately, I bet a lot of us have been there, done that and gotten several t-shirts. I know I have, especially over the last two years. The question is: what methods can you use to keep you moving forward through the difficult times in your life?
In Season 2, Episode 12 of the podcast, I talk with Todd Ehrhardt, a husband, father, entrepreneur, gardener, bodybuilder, martial artist and a diver. Todd has been at the top of the world and deep in the sea (figuratively and literally), and in today’s episode, I talk with Todd about how he and his family were able to move forward in challenging times. This is a good one with really great information, you will want to check out the show notes.

- “People are always watching. When you carry yourself in life, people are ALWAYS watching. What are you putting out into the ether? Are you putting positive energy out there, the best to you can to make a positive change in your life and other people’s lives? Or are you putting a bunch of negative things out into the ether? People will pick up on that and either be attracted to that or run from you.”
