Letting my voice be heard

by jon on March 25, 2012

So I just left a radio show for WBT with host Bobby DeMuro. Don’t worry, I will be sure to post the transcript when it comes out :). We talked about mixing business with social impact and the positive effects of volunteering. Pretty much everything I love, and it was an amazing show. Bobby and I have become really good friends over the last few months. This guy is so passionate about making a difference that when we get together, I think the world is going to explode. I plan to introduce him more on a future post when I start profiling people who take risks to follow something they love. And Bobby, thank you for embracing my passion and continuing to give me the forum to share it. Bobby is the epitome of a 1 + 1 > 2 person. By just being himself, he continues to inspire me and many others in the Charlotte community.

So I did want to share what I experienced tonight during the show. I was in the studio, and it felt like time was standing still. I was able to talk about making a difference in the community, the impact of an amazing company called the Center for Intentional Leadership, mixing profits with purpose and ways our generation can create a new culture of responsibility. I was in that state of flow where I could have talked about this stuff all night.

I am sharing this experience, because I didn’t start having feelings like this until I really opened up about what I loved and started letting my voice be heard. It began with this blog and continues to develop. So I just wanted everyone I know and love to continue to let their voice be heard and create time for something they love doing. I really want you to have this same feeling I had tonight. Because when we let our voice be heard, we open the world up to our authenticity. Our creative spirit begins to emerge and we just become happier people. I want our world to be a culture of people who all share this feeling. Like my friends at LaL say in their noble goal, we can co-create a context for humanity. Have a great week.

Dude, you killed it — as always.

Hey, FYI for you and your readers — I’ve got the mp3 segment of your interview from tonight — let me upload it on my comp and file share it, and I will send you the link, so you can post it here! (I’m writing my WBT Blog recap of tonight’s show right now, too – mentioning you!).

See you Thursday for TV filming and definitely coffee again next week. But don’t come to coffee if you don’t have a life changing story. You know that’s the rule… Love ya bro!
