Podcasting with “Assorted Conversations”

I added podcasting to my portfolio of interviews lately, and it was a great time. My friends Helen and Maureen explore people’s pursuit of their passions through their podcast “Assorted Conversations”. These conversations are with individuals who have found that special spark in an activity or pastime they have gravitated to and passionately jumped into feet first. We talked about everything from flipping my first race car to how I landed at Sport and Specialty.

I often refer to my ownership of Sport and Specialty as my third act. It doesn’t mean the previous two acts were unenjoyable, to the contrary, I’ve been blessed with many fun and meaningful work environments over the years. I simply define this time as a unique opportunity to pursue my passion of sports cars, combined with my experience as a businessman. More third act than last act, because who knows what lies ahead?

If you’ve wondered about how I got to my “Third Act”, give a listen. Also make sure to look at the other interviews they have done. There’s some pretty interesting insights in to jobs you never knew existed! Thanks!

You can get to the podcast through their website Assorted Conversations.

I met my racing and paddock partner John Wheeler almost twenty years ago when I first started Vintage Historic racing. I was trying to figure this whole thing out and he was my coach and mentor. The most important thing he ever told me when I bemoaned my slow times...

No One Races Alone

A few weeks ago I got involved in an online conversation where someone claimed that the only reason we can’t go racing is that organizers would demand a driver’s meeting, and if we could just do the meeting on our phones we’d be just fine to go racing again. I quickly...
