Who you are today is the result of what you were doing for the past 3 months. That’s what people see.

Danny Miranda

WARNING: This conversation is equivalent to ONE BILLION GRAMS of caffeine.

Today on the show I’m joined by Danny Miranda (@heydannymiranda), host of The Danny Miranda Podcast. Danny’s a beast. He’s got a heart full of love and a passion for daily improvement. Danny Miranda has interviewed many powerful creatives and performers from the likes of Gary Vaynerchuk to Joe Ferraro. His outlook on life is contagious and after recording this I felt like running up a mountain.

In this conversation we talk about how self-love can lead to strength, the craft of podcasting, and how to keep our minds and bodies sharp to do our best work.
