115: “Our best response when doors open to us is to just walk through them.” - My interview with host and producer of the Sports Spectrum Podcast, Jason Romano

June 20, 2018
In the 115th episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview host and producer of the Sports Spectrum Podcast, Author, Speaker, and former ESPN producer, Jason Romano.
 
“Our best response when doors open to us is to just walk through them.” Keep saying “yes” until God says “no” and keep moving forward. Jason Romano lives this out fully every day of his life. From ESPN producer to entrepreneur, Jason has done it all, and lets his light shine for God the entire way. His journey is one of encouragement, perseverance, and unwavering faith, even in the midst of adversity, and I am honored by the chance to help share his story. I hope you all enjoy my interview with Jason Romano.

114: “I want to be remembered for not being afraid to go after what I want.” - My interview CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and future Police Officer, Lindsey Walker.

June 13, 2018
In the 114th episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and future Police Officer, Lindsey Walker.
 
“I want to be remembered for not being afraid to go after what I want.” At just 24 years old, there is no doubt that Lindsey Walker has already established the legacy of being a person who is never afraid to go after what she wants. From athlete, to coach, to aspiring Police Officer, Lindsey continually pushes forward through the obstacles ahead of her all the while serving others around her in any way she can. Noting that being a part of a community like CrossFit makes her want to push herself to be a better person and to help others, she carries this mentality over into all areas of her life. I am truly honored for the opportunity to help share her story, and I can’t wait for you to listen in to my interview with Lindsey Walker.
 
To learn more about Lindsey, you can follow along with her journey on Facebook and Instagram.

June 6, 2018
In the 113th episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview Co-Founder of 31 South and former collegiate tennis player, Tami McQueen.
 
“I’m either all in or not at all. Black or white. Never gray.” For Tami McQueen, there is no grey area. We need to simply go all in and stop worrying about tomorrow as if it is promised. As is reflective of her entire life, Tami truly does just decide to do something, and simply goes after it. Nothing derails her, nothing distracts her, and her entrepreneurial and athlete mind and drive ensure that she will continue on this strong path for the rest of her inspiring days. I am so happy that I was given the chance to speak with and help share her remarkable story, and I hope you all enjoy my interview with Tami McQueen.

May 30, 2018
In the 112th episode of Keep Moving Forward I interview Chelsea Terwilliger with True North Church in Savannah, Georgia.
 
“God just doesn’t ever waste your gift. With God, you stay relevant, you never have to live in the past.” Knowing full well that anything she left behind paled in comparison to what lay ahead, Chelsea Terwilliger walked boldly forward into the calling God placed on her life and entered full-time ministry. Never letting the fear of the unknown derail her, Chelsea is a living testament to the amazing things that can happen in your life if only you have the courage to step out and step up.

May 23, 2018
In the 111th episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview author, speaker, and former Hockey Gopher, Ross Bernstein.
 
“You have to follow YOUR dream, otherwise, you’ll spend the rest of your damn life working for someone else who did.” From the Gopher of Hockey to a critically acclaimed author, Ross Bernstein is the epitome of an individual who worked his absolute hardest to get a seat at the table he wanted to be at. Along his own journey through athletics, Ross realized that the only way to get what you want is through relentless hard work. You may not end up where you initially intended to go, but you will end up where you were always meant to be. Without a doubt this is one of my favorite interviews to date, and I hope you all enjoy my discussion with Ross Bernstein.

May 16, 2018
In the 110th episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview Chemical Engineer with Georgia Pacific and former Georgia Tech track and field athlete, Zack Fanelty.
 
“Remind yourself that there are always other opportunities.” Just because one door closes, that does not mean your journey is over. You must keep persevering and keep pressing forward until you find that door you were meant to walk through. That is what Zack Fanelty did his entire life and all the way through his track career at Georgia Tech and beyond. It was a privilege to speak with him and I hope you all enjoy my discussion with Zack Fanelty.

109: “Even when things feel dark or hopeless, there is still a fire, however small, that will never go out.” - My Interview with Aspiring Nurse and Former KSU Lacrosse Player, Taylor Southerland

May 9, 2018
In the 109th episode of Keep Moving Forward, I interview aspiring nurse and former Kennesaw State University lacrosse player, Taylor Southerland.
 
“Even when things feel dark or hopeless, there is still a fire, however small, that will never go out.” When Taylor recognized her sophomore year of college that sports anchored her, she determined to make a mental shift. Though she loved lacrosse and the passion she had for playing (and playing at the NCAA Division I level, no less) ran deep in her heart, she knew it would be impossible to sustain herself through college and beyond by placing her worth in something that was already starting to fail her. She noticed that “Even though all these great things were happening, I couldn’t figure out why I still felt so empty” so, in that realization, Taylor determined to give her life to Jesus. Taylor’s testimony is one of perseverance and relentless vision and drive, and I am so grateful for the opportunity I was given to meet and speak with her. I hope you all enjoy my discussion with Taylor Southerland.

108: “Wake up, put your feet on the ground, and ask yourself: how am I going to grow today?” - My interview with the Director of Instruction at the Country Club of the South, Shawn Koch

May 2, 2018
In the 108th episode of Keep Moving Forward I interview the Director of Instruction at the Country Club of the South and former professional golfer, Shawn Koch.
 
Before we begin I want to give a shout-out to the latest patron of Keep Moving Forward, Michelle! Michelle, thank you so much for supporting my podcast, I am so grateful for your encouragement.
 
“Wake up, put your feet on the ground, and ask yourself: how am I going to grow today?” Your perspective can make or break you. The mental space in which you choose to wake up in every day is so powerful that it can actually dictate if you will have a good day or not...so why give those potential negative thoughts any power? If you wake up determined to thrive, determined to grow, determined to be better than you were yesterday, then you can’t fail. If you wake up thankful for everything you have, then you are setting yourself up for success. That is what Shawn Koch does every day. Though he admits to not always being in this strong mental state, he now knows, through his own experiences, what it takes to get there. Through unwavering faith, perseverance, and the leaning into the calling placed on his life to lead the next generation of golfers to success, Shawn is living proof of God crushing some dreams to make room for the ones we never even imagined possible.
 
I am so thankful for the chance to speak with this incredible golfer and coach, and I hope you all enjoy my interview with Shawn Koch.

107: “Do or do not. There is no try.” - My experience running the Walt Disney World Star Wars Half-Marathon

April 25, 2018
In the 107th episode of Keep Moving Forward I recap my weekend in Walt Disney World and my running of the Star Wars Dark Side Half-Marathon.
“Do or do not. There is no try.” I had a fear of running and competing again before I began my first half-marathon, because it is so easy to get swept up in it and revert back to my old mentality: putting every ounce of who I was into sports only to have my identity stripped away when my organized athletic career came to a close. But I realized, when forcing myself to slow down and take in every aspect of this Disney race, not allowing myself to get caught up in the competition and how to beat the person next me, just wanting to remember this experience, it helped to clear my head and appreciate the opportunity I am given to run. Because that’s what it is: an opportunity. The ability I have to put one foot in front of the other is a gift, and I never want to take that for granted. It’s easy to get caught up in the planning, the goal-setting, the process to achievement, that I often forget to live in the moment. It dawned on me that sometimes, I just have to slow down enough to watch the sunrise.
