For those of you who know me, you know that our journey to Royersford didn’t come without its share of obstacles. In this episode, I revisit the Real Person | Real Needs archives and combine each segment from the history of our housing journey into one continuous narrative. Now that this part of our life […]
In this episode, I use my younger son’s struggles with fear to discuss how we need to redefine our fear so that it is a catalyst rather a crutch. I also comment on how contentment in life is both alluring and elusive for someone like me, and share my somewhat controversial thoughts on college education. […]
On this episode, I share how self-employment and chasing your dreams can be an emotional roller-coaster. It certainly isn’t for everyone and frankly some days I wonder if it’s even for me! But in the midst of all of the chaos and uncertainty, God is faithful to teach me important lessons and let the clouds […]
When you put all of your hopes in an expected outcome that doesn’t come to fruition, you can become disenfranchised or disillusioned. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
A quick disclaimer: this episode includes a lot of coughing, sniffling, and overall grossness courtesy of yours truly and my seasonal allergies. Autumn is my absolute favorite season for a number of reasons. Football, leaves, Thanksgiving, My Fall Wardrobe (which includes an assortment of sweater vests, bowties, and dope jackets). I also met my wife […]
The job of an aspiring actor is to audition. Over and over again. Some will go well. Some won’t. But what is important to me is that I keep lining them up, preparing, and doing my best, come what may. I decided to document some of my recent experiences. So here’s your opportunity to know […]
As I officially relaunch the podcast under the new moniker, “The Acting Realtor” podcast, I have decided to replay several key episodes in order to get any new listeners up to speed on where we have been on this journey. I encourage any long time listeners to also re-listen and share the podcast with anyone […]
After months of deliberation, and several short hiatuses (including right now), I’ve made the decision to retitle and rebrand my podcast. The “Real Person | Real Needs” podcast will now be known as “The Acting Realtor” podcast. www.actingrealtor.com Don’t worry you don’t have to update your feeds or podcast apps. The first 42 episodes of […]
In this short episode, I discuss how this podcast started, the purpose it has served over the last 20 months and where we are headed going forward.
Things have been spinning slightly out of control in my life recently and I’m trying my best to navigate the chaos. In this episode, I discuss the failure of the A/C unit in my new home, my pants failing yet again, the temptation to compromise in order to get ahead, and being overwhelmed by too […]
It’s been over a month, and it’s two days late, but I am finally back with a new episode! This last month has been one of the most challenging since I began pursuing my dream. That’s why I haven’t been as active on the podcast and the blog. But there are a lot of exciting […]
In this episode, I sit down with Karin Wolfle, entrepreneur/artist behind The Shabby Attic in Lansdale, PA. Having left behind a career in the mental health field, Karin decided to pursue her love of fine arts by starting her own business. She soon realized that being an entrepreneur requires a little bit of “crazy,” and whole lot more […]
In this episode, I sit down with “The Sultan of Silver” himself, George Bruno. To say that George is a professionally licensed barber is almost like doing him a disservice. I prefer to use the term Renaissance Man. Whether he’s posting videos of beard grooming tips, sharing random insights on father/son relationships and cigars, or […]
Back in the early days of the podcast, I had the privilege of interviewing several inspiring individuals who are trying to make a difference in their community as well as in the world of business. Over the next few weeks I wanted to share those conversations with you in case you hadn’t had a chance […]
If you’ve been following along recently, you know that we have been in the market for a new home and recently went under contract, with a scheduled settlement date of May 8th, 2017. That’s today! Over the course of the last 10 years, we have had some pretty significant life changes every year. Some were by […]
A lot has been going on in the last few weeks so I thought it would be good to update everyone on where life has taken me and my family. First of all, we’ve started the process of packing yet again, but hopefully this time is for the long haul. Notes: 00:00-02:30 Family Update | […]
In this episode of the podcast, I reflect on my most recent theater production before getting into a discussion about time management and the importance of prioritizing the things that are most important to you. We also discuss taking responsibility for your actions, and refusing to make excuses. Notes: 00:00-01:27 A Request for Feedback […]
#podcast #RealPersonRealNeeds #actingrealtor In this episode, I ask for your help. I’m thinking about changing the title of the podcast. Over the course of the last 16 months, the podcast has evolved in ways I couldn’t have anticipated, and in order to clearly communicate to the world what to expect when tuning in, I think […]
Things have been a little insane over the course of the last two weeks. Previously on the Real Person | Real Needs podcast, I mentioned that my wife and I recently were able to get pre-approved for a mortgage after over 6 years of being trapped in rental world. I thought that working in real estate would make buying a house a little easier. I WAS WRONG!
#Podcast #RealPersonRealNeeds Since we last gathered on the podcast, I performed in my very first cabaret on Valentine’s Day as part of Season 6 of the New Voices Cabaret. As far as I’m concerned the night was a rousing success. Aside from a flubbed lyric here and there, the crowd genuinely seemed to enjoy my […]
