Josiah Bruny, a Southern Californian, has a lifelong dream of sharing music and art (and the business side) with underprivileged and at-risk children through his non-profit, Music Changing Lives. When asked about his success, he says, "There's thousands of people that have molded me into who I am today and I have to give them all the credit. That's why I'm so appreciative! Speak your dreams, believe them, go after them.”

Sharing her love of music and the blues, Vanessa Collier doesn't let much hold her back. She is known as a master musician and multi-talented blues performer. She plays all the saxophones, the flute, clarinet, funk piano, guitar, and she's been dabbling with bass and drums. Listen in as we analyze her progression from childhood to her current 27 year old self. 

"Being an introvert, I feel that I don't always communicate it as clearly as I can, so, one of the things that keeps me thinking is how can I be more clear? How can I communicate better? And, how can I connect with people better? Music has always been a great way for me to do that because it hasn't required words, I can play how I feel."

Today's guest, Cory M. Coons, is a perfect example of a person with a passion for music, family and performance. He is an award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter from Ottawa, Ontario. Listen in to follow his story from his first job at a golf course, to the tragic loss of his parents and his ability to embrace music that has changed him throughout the years. 

"I think you need to surround yourself with the right people to achieve a balance. I think there's always going to be the fear factor in anything that you do. Know when to take the right chances in life. Set small goals to climb the ladder if you're looking for the big goal in the end, because I think everything leads to something else. I'm a believer in synchronicity, everything happens for a reason."

Episode 71 - No Labels, No Limits podcast - Creative Achievers Compilation

Season 1, Ep. 71

Today is another unique episode of No Labels, No Limits podcast where we have gathered three impactful, creative guests from past episodes. We interview Anne Sugar (an executive coach and speaker who advises top leaders), David Speed (founder of Graffiti Life, a creative company that makes art of all kinds for big brands, both inside and out), and Melissa Agnes (a leading authority on crisis preparedness, reputation management, and brand protection).


Each guest leaves us with a few thoughts and ideas that we might carry through our daily lives. Listen in to the episode and find some words of wisdom below.


Anne says, "Part of being creative or thinking about new ideas is having the space to put something out there. An idea that's messy and not very good, but all those ideas over time create big opportunities, right? So how, and it's so simple in the sense of there's so much we could talk about, trust and respect, all of that, but it's just simply having somebody's back, right?"

David’s interview was so interesting and he gives us some background and bits of advice on the origin of his creativity when he says, "Your journey, every step that you take, gets you to where you are. Our failures have made us stronger, make us no longer vulnerable in those areas where we failed in the past because we've been able to learn from our mistakes in the dark. If you keep going, great things will come.”

When we asked Melissa to share something interesting or unique about herself, she crowdsourced the question in advance and got some great answers. She explains why - "It's fun to see yourself through the lens of other people because all I have is my own lens. What you think is normal, other people don't. Just because it's normal to you, doesn't mean it's normal to them."

Episode 67 - No Labels, No Limits podcast - with Santos Verardo, The Coach To Coaches

Season 1, Ep. 67

Our latest episode features an exciting interview with Santos Verardo, owner of the New Coach Launchpad. Not only is she an accomplished Educator, she also works with new coaches who are building their business while working full time. Her focus is on helping coaches with getting visible, creating impactful content, and establishing themselves as an expert in their niche so they can grow their audience and make an impact with their coaching. She believes that strong routines and habits form the foundation for any successful endeavor and seeks to continue to grow and learn every single day!

On the path to our goals, Santos leaves us with this message, "First, you can accomplish anything you set your mind to, and I know that sounds like a typical elementary school principal, but I know it from life experience and I believe it to my core. I'm an example of that and so many people that I know are an example of that. Second, when you stick to your instincts and really follow them, you are going to live such an amazing, happy, fulfilled life."
