Risk Without Regret: Stories from Risk Takers, Inspiring Entrepreneurs, Small Business Owners

Based out of Dayton, Ohio, Randy Johnson hosts a weekly podcast titled Risk Without Regret. The main goal of this show is to inspire and motivate you to follow your dreams, take more risks, build a business around your passions, and have no regrets along the way. Some episodes, I'll discuss a quote I came across and really dig in deeper for 10-20 minutes. Quotes that mean something to me, and I think deserve to be expanded upon to make you think about them more and how they can relate to you. The rest of the episodes will be more of an interview format. I'll bring guests onto the show that have an inspiring story to share about their journey. These might range from 30-90 minutes, and some may even pass the 2 hour mark. These amazing people will come from all walks of life and they bring insane amounts of wisdom to the table. I refer to all of my guests as risk takers. Individuals who didn't follow the typical path, they paved their own. They enlighten us all about how they started their business, or travel the world, or work from their laptop on a beach, or make 7-figures, or even just how their life experiences shaped them into who they are today. Some are more successful than others, but they all share the same mindset of taking risks, doing what they love, helping others, and living life to the fullest. Enjoy!

Here's a super short episode, only 3 minutes in length. I posted this quote on my personal Instagram a couple months ago (@bigran82). I wrote a long caption explaining my thoughts on it and how it relates to my life. I turned that caption into audio and now it's available through my podcast.

Here's the text version of this episode:

So much work over the past week, and it continues into another late one tonight.

I think we are all lucky at times, but no one is lucky 24/7. Someone called me lucky again the other day, because sometimes my social media gives off the impression like I don't work at all, like I'm just traveling all the time or eating at Chipotle everyday or just sleeping. Like that's all I do. Haha

I just work hard behind the scenes, although if you've followed my Snapchat (minitruckscene) for the past few years, you'd see what my daily life is like.

I really enjoy my life, but 80% of the time it would look extremely boring from an outsider's perspective. Like here's my computer, here's a book, here's my food, here's a movie I'm watching, here's the orders I'm shipping, here's the music I'm listening to, etc.

But that 20% or less of my time overpowers the majority. It blinds people and makes them forget what my daily life is like. Most of my waking hours are spent either: at my desk on my computer, in bed or on the couch updating social media accounts & responding to emails, or in some random place working from my laptop.

But that's boring so I don't show it all the time. By not showing it all the time, I might have this image sometimes of extreme success with little to no work. Far from the truth. And I know I can make things look easy at times, but it took many years of work for it to appear that way.

So maybe I should start posting more of my daily life (even though I think I'm extremely transparent on all social networks) so people can better understand what it takes to do the things I do.

It's not easy by any means, and I don't think it's for most people, but it's 100% available to everyone. I just had a stronger push to go for it, and that opened my eyes. Maybe some day I can give that same push to hundreds or thousands of people.

What are your thoughts on all of this?

Back to work at 2:04am, at my desk, that I've been at for 4 hours, and before that I was on the couch updating social media til I passed out for a few hours.

The ingredients are simple, but cooking the recipe can be challenging at times. Make it anyways. @riskwithoutregret #ranplan
