Today’s episode is all about a crazy thing that happened this week. And what a week it’s been! Actually, scratch that: What two weeks it has been… (Maybe 3 weeks?) I don’t know.

You know how sometimes — no matter what you do — you just can’t seem to get back on the horse?

That’s how it’s been here recently. Tons of shit hitting the fan — of all different colors:

  • Tech stuff blowing up (not literally)
  • Sick dog
  • House under insect attack
  • And some other stuff

Bottom line is, the last few weeks weren’t easy — especially this week. Then, I got an amazing phone call (you’ll hear about it on the episode), with an amazing opportunity (seriously… listen to the episode!) that brightened up my entire week.

But here’s the cool part: This phone call, and the opportunity that came with it, would never had happened had I not put a little dream out there and told the universe what I want. And guess what? Sometimes, the universe gives you just that.

So check out today’s (super short) episode to find out the story, including the opportunity that I got, and our surprise, MASSIVE, HUGE, AMAZING guest on tomorrow’s show. (Confused about having two episodes this week? You should listen to find out more!)

Then, come back here, scroll down to the bottom, and put your something out there. Comment below and share one tiny (or huge) dream — and see what happens next 🙂

  1. This episode is short but sweet and I loved it! I loved the story, Meron, about how you got an interview with Guy Kawasaki. Things like that happening are the reason I tell anyone who is feeling down why they still need to get up and face each day. You never know what that day will bring you! Awesome!

    I’m going to take you up on your call to action. What’s the worst that could happen, right? I’ll give you a big dream of mine. One day I would love to give a TED talk. I’ve been inspired by so many of them and if I ever have the honor to give one myself it would be amazing. So there universe!

    And if anyone is thinking about commenting with a dream of theirs, DO IT! Why not? It’ll be fun.

    1. THANK you for your courage, Melissa. What a great dream to have!

      Here’s the universe doing its thing: I actually know a few TED organizers. Let’s talk about it off the public wall 🙂

  2. Hi Meron – Found your podcast about 6 months ago & love and find much value!! I have a BIG DREAM & VISION. I have worked with children, teens, college students, parents, educators, mentors & helping professionals for almost 30 years. My website(s) will allow anyone who is curious learn more about my professional journey.

    I have created OptimistTV & the Optimist News Network. We have domains, prototype websites (2) built, trademarks, a for profit & non-profit companies established, a biz plan, a tech guru, an advertising executive & lawyer involved. We have secured a 10k donation into the non-profit. At this stage more sponsors, partners & in-kind donors are needed to build up funds and resources in the non-profit, we are looking for investors for the for-profit company. I want to do a crowd-funding campaign, and trying to figure it out, so to do smartly.

    OptimistTV is “A Internet TV Channel … which focuses purely on serving
    kids, teens, parents, educators, mentors & helping professionals … In The Technological Age.

    Thank You Meron for the offer & opportunity to share. Keep up the AMAZING work you are doing!! Respectfully – Joe

  3. Thank you, Joe, for sharing! I remember checking out your site when you signed up to the podcasting bootcamp (now named ‘The Podcast Incubator’). I’m so glad you wrote this comment, because I’m actually interviewing Natalie Sisson in 2 weeks – and she funded her book “The Suitcase Entrepreneur” in a crowd-funding project. If you have any specific questions you’d like me to ask her – please let me know and I’ll do my best to get you some answers. I also love this podcast episode by my good friend Ralph Quintero that’s all about getting corporate sponsorship (ranging from $5k to $100k per year if I remember correctly) – definitely worth listening to. Here’s a copy of that show: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mcdum7pfrnld3w0/The%20Great%20Business%20Project%20Podcast%20006.mp3

    Thank you for your support and for the change you’re putting in this world, Joe. I appreciate your comment so much. Please let me know if there’s any way I can help your cause!


  4. I really loved this episode, Meron. You should do more of these. In fact, I like your little to camera pieces on YouTube as well.

    Hope the dog gets better.

    I had a similar thing to this week. I’d been disappointed by my lack of productivity but I had a nice surprise at the end of it. 🙂
