About Moving Forward
In November, 2014 John, an avid NPR junkie, was at the gym and couldn’t get a good signal that day. Scrolling through a sea of unused apps, John decided to click on the podcast icon (the stick figure with the circles – kinda looks like this ((i)) ) and stumbled onto a world of awesome content. After binging episodes of Entrepreneur on Fire w/ John Lee Dumas and Rich Dad Radio w/ Robert Kiyosaki, John was inspired to launch Moving Forward. The goal was two-fold: as John was embarking on his own entrepreneurial journey, he wanted to learn as much as he could from individuals who had found that passion spark in their careers and businesses. Second, John wanted to share these stories with an audience so they could get inspired to discover the extraordinary within them. Listen to their stories, discover their knowledge bursts, make those connections get ready, it’s time to start moving forward.
