Welcome to Episode 15 of FUN! On this episode we discuss the love for the craft. When you find things that interest you and if you treat like a craft something that you are not applying yourself to every day because there's a gun to your head or there's something attached to it other than your desire to explore and express it there maybe something there. However, for today's guest Mitch Joel it's a number of different things, from speaking to writing to helping brands build audiences to ideas to bass players to even magic. Mitch applies himself to areas of interest as if it were a craft and his only expectation from it is that he either learn more about it or he will make a mistake that will correct course him in some strange way to have a day maybe where he gets a little better at it. Mitch's message, Don’t diminish the craft and the process.

Life can be challenging. When we look at it through the lenses of wonder, amazement and cool stuff that is out there it kind of changes our perspective. Every now and then you will encounter somebody that really stands out, initially because of what we see but then because of the substance behind it.

He works with some of the world’s biggest brands such as IBM, Cisco but more than that he is a guy who just got tremendous heart and you can see him coming a mile away because he wears these plaid jackets all the time.

If you are in a place where you are stuck in life or you are hating what you are doing. You have to stop and reexamine the path you are taking yourself on and understand why are you doing it. Only then can you try to find what you really want to do. Sometimes it takes a leap to do what you love in life.


Today’s guest took that leap and left his career as a lawyer to do what he loves. All it took was two little words, What If. Today’s guest is Lou Mongello of host of the award winning travel podcast, WDW Radio. A podcast dedicated to celebrating the magic of Walt Disney World.
