Beyond the Rut in 2017

Beyond the Rut is a podcast about encouraging, inspiring, and equipping you to make your own path and live the life you’ve always dreamed of beyond the rut.

Many of our listeners have expressed over the years how they have a good job, they love their families, but life somehow seems to be an unfulfilled rut. There is something more they have dreamed of for their families and struggle to find a way to pursue that.

Those dreams vary from person to person, because we are each a unique creation.

That’s where Beyond the Rut comes in. We have had the pleasure and honor to hold conversations with people just like you who have found their own paths. Our hope is that these stories have in some way helped you take that first step or that next step to reaching your dreams.

We are sharing with you in this episode our five favorite moments from all those interviews conducted in 2017. This was a tough list to come up with as we felt all our interviews were great. These five clips, however, encapsulate what our message has been about:

  1. Find a creative way to fund your dream and move forward anyway.
  2. You aren’t meant to make everyone happy. Apply your special gifts and talents to meet a special need.
  3. Find great coaches and mentors to propel you on your journey.
  4. Help others. Others will help you, too.
  5. There is no excuse to not learn what you need to know and make someone else’s job easier.

Special Thanks

We’d like to give special thanks to Sara McDaniel, Patti Centeno and Jody Maberry who connected us with these great people. This show would not have been able to share the wisdom of anyone we interviewed in 2017 with people like you sharing your circles of influence with us.
