85. Graceful Disruption

“Dare greatly, disrupt gracefully.

-Kristen m. Olson

I was PUMPED to be an OFFICIAL SPEAKER at The Podfest Global Summit 2021! I spoke about GRACEFUL DISRUTION, what it is, why it’s important, and how I came to know this. I display my process through the lens of my fitness and business journeys thus far. Some success and lots of failure… or so I thought, I had to personally gracefully disrupt my own perception on what the past really was and how much it really prepared me for my future. All the clichés on this one, but as I always say, if any part of sharing my journey streamlines lessons in yours, it’s all worth it:). Reality is nothing more than applied meaning, as we say on T&T. Define your own meaning, dare greatly, disrupt gracefully. Enjoy.

PodFest Global Summit:

Simply stated, Podfest Global Summit is an extension of Podfest Multimedia Expo, one of the longest running and tightest-knit communities of podcasters in the world! Podfest Expo is a community of people who are interested in and passionate about sharing their voice and message with the world through the powerful mediums of audio and video. We’re proud to unite as many people as possible to learn, get inspired, and grow better together. On top of the quality content and camaraderie PODFEST has become famous for over the years, we are also attempting the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for Largest Attendance for a Virtual Podcasting Conference!


Questioning a better way. OG philosophy. The why the how, and where are we now. Plan to fail, thus you’ll succeed. Define your own meaning and disrupt your own reality. Leading by example and being a conscious consumer. Influence, inspiration, and social media. Bettering yourself to better those around you.
