Happy Friday! We are excited to come back to you, just Josh and Ben! Part of our 'new format' of the show is to have a monthly recap show and discuss things we've learned from all the guests this month.
First Ben and Josh talk about Brianna Wu's interview. Josh is convinced, though Ben asserts Josh is wrong, that Ben has a crush on Brianna. Crush is the wrong word, Ben admires what she does and how she does it. Josh and Ben could agree on Brianna's value-bomb of "be honest with yourself, keep on your 'mission objectives'." Ben and Josh also discuss what her message means to us.
Next, Josh and Ben review their time with Josh's crush, Shannon Hernandez. Josh clears things up and says Shannon is just a fun guy to hang out with. We talk about some of the stories Shannon shared and we also agree on his value-bomb "stay persistent and allow yourself to grow in small steps." This is huge and we talk about how Shannon is living this idea.
Then Ben and Josh cover Susan Carlson. Josh and Ben both enjoyed speaking with Susan and both have a ton of respect for her. She is very articulate and passionate about her goals and thoughts on the education system here in Phoenix. Susan's value-bomb that stuck with us is "keep on keeping on." This point also echos Shannon's point.
Before Josh and Ben discuss the most recent interview of the month, they get on a bit of a tangent about motorcycles (especially considering Josh just purchased a new bike).
Finally, Ben and Josh speak about Brett Gajda. Brett shared some fun stories in his interview. While it was a great time, it was also super informative. Brett left us with a great value-bomb "breakdown almost always comes before break through." Huge advice, and something we all should keep in mind when things get difficult.
