[REPURPOSED from The Upstream Podcast] 

About a year ago, Matt Pana of @likewisepodcast asked me to be on his podcast. I had no idea why he would want to speak to me or what we would speak about.   I was truly humbled that he shared with me that I had been someone he had looked up to as a drummer. I played drums for many years because I enjoyed it and was not intending to have any impact or influence on anyone. To hear him honor me in this way and to be able to speak on his podcast gave me encouragement to pass along honor.

In my life, I've learned that while veering off course of our chosen paths might have been (and still is) discouraged, it’s often the pivots you make in life, and those rare opportunities that you just say “yes” to, that teach us the most about ourselves- what lights us up, what brings meaning to our lives, and how resilient we actually are.

In this next episode of “Cut the Small Talk,” I catch up with an old college friend, Matt Pana, who continues to make successful pivots in his life that have led him to opportunities and careers that cater to both his passions and his desire for sustainability.
