With as much as we are inundated within our daily lives, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to be completely present and mindful of the people and things that really matter. In fact (and in fairness to today’s conversation), this podcast could actually be distracting you from what it is you should be doing. Today, I’m joined by my friend Donnie Vincent. Many of you know him as an avid outdoorsman, hunter, and conservationist but we tackle a different (but equally important) conversation today – being present and mindful of who you are and what you’re after. We cover social media, finding work you love, dealing with a lack of confidence, taking care of yourself first, and ensuring you’re focused on just the right things.

  • Fighting like hell
  • The foundation of truth


Many of you know my guest today, Donnie Vincent but I think you’ll see and hear a side of him that you haven’t heard before. Donnie is an explorer, a biologist, a conservationist, and a sportsman. And, I think after listening to our conversation, you’ll hear how thoughtful and intentional he is about how exactly he lives his life.

Donnie is an incredible storyteller and through his media company, Sicmanta, he has a powerful gift in bringing people into his outdoor adventures and connecting them with his passion for the wild. After hearing him today, you’re going to understand what I mean and walk away inspired to lean into your life more fully.


My legacy is something that is very important to me. I’m sure it is for you too.

Last week, I had the opportunity to spend 4 days with my two oldest boys and, as we laughed and joked, shared stories, and had an adventure, I couldn’t help but wonder if I am doing enough to prepare them for life as their father.

In fact, it’s the thing that keeps me up and night more than anything else. I’m sure that, as a father, you feel very much the same way. For this reason, I launched the LEGACY EXPERIENCE three years ago as a 3 ½ day event to bring together fathers and sons around a group of strong, competitive, competent men, lessons, and resources. I want to invite you to claim one of the last 2 spots remaining for our third installment in Maine on June 11-14, 2020. If you’re even remotely interested, please head to to learn more and lock in one of those last remaining spots.

Join our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.
