The Made Over Podcast Episode 058 with Erik Allen

Where does your passion lead you?

A lot of times, entrepreneurs get unmotivated with their work, and this is normal. But how do you get yourself back on track and continue what you do?

It’s passion. Passion is a strong desire or emotion that drives you to keep doing what you’re doing. It isn’t a skill, but it is related to your why or your purpose. It is a powerful force that will lead you to where you need to be in order to be successful.

In today’s episode, Erik Allen, who was raised in a broken home, battled depression and addictions, was jailed at 18, bankrupt at 21, and now helps MMA get more visibility online, shared his story about how he overcame his setbacks and transformed into a new person, and how he turned his passion for listening to people’s stories into successful podcast shows.

As he shared his story, it sounded like a simple transformation. There was an event in his life that changed his heart overnight, but it wasn’t an instant transformation. He took action because he believed it would bring him closer to the person he was meant to be. And it did. 

And his fascination for other people’s stories led him to start a podcast, interview MMA players’ stories, and now runs the best podcast in the northwest.
