Welcome to the Chad Shipley Show, where I work for you! I live for continuous learning and expansion and have had the greatest mentors in the world. I synthesize the invaluable insights and lessons learned that have had the most profound impact on my life. It may be a book, a blog, a speech or a video. It may be a life changing story. You may laugh and you may cry. The goal is to give you something meaningful. Something to help us grow. The topics range from Flow hacking for increased performance to Charity Water and the countless lives a young girl saved just by caring.
It's not the critic who counts....The credit belongs to the man who actually is in the arena, who strives violently, who errs and comes up short again and again...who if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement, but who if he fails, fails while daring greatly.

This is by far the most vulnerable I have ever been publicly with various incidents that have happened in my life (i.e. multiple trips to jail). I decided that it was time to come out from underneath the curtain of shame and to tell my story - or stories. I hope that this finds and helps the people who need to hear it - and that it doesn't blow up my career.

I had way too much fun in this episode. Shared a little riddle, took a moment to ponder some quotes, and examined the book "Ego is the Enemy" with a focus on Jackie Robinson and his ability to NOT fight back. Thanks for listening.
