Today we're breaking from the typical mold and talking to a listener of Restaurant Unstoppable. Like a restaurant owner speaking with their guest, I speak with my listeners to understand what I can do to make this podcast as valuable as possible.

I was following up with one of my listeners, Colton Shoults, to thank him for using one of my links when signing up for a service.

After listening to his story, I was so blown away by his persistence, determinism, and creativity, that I just had to share his story with you.

Hit play and hear how he acted on the advice of our past guest to take control of his life by taking a chance and displaying determinism.

I hope this story inspires you to do the same!
