Episode 16 | Why ‘Doing Your Thing’ is a Marathon, Not a Sprint

Show Summary

Doing your thing in life is a marathon – not a sprint – and upholding your liberty to do so is just the same! In the first half of Episode 16, Ross speaks with Jen Anderson about how and why she turned her passion for triathlons into a career, and about why it’s important to focus on long term goals even when they seem crazy in the short term. In the second half of the program, Ross interviews author Tim Dake about why America’s founders included Article V in the Constitution – and about how We the People are empowered with “marathon style” political liberty as a result.
