027: Personal Evolution with Ed Roberson

Personal Evolution with Ed Roberson

Have you ever had a chance meeting with someone and you instantly connected?

Your conversation off the get go had a familiarity and curiosity that had you wanting to know more stories, vision, and passions of the person you were hanging out with. This was my conversation with my guest on this week’s episode.

We met through a comment he made about my interview with my guest Kevin Mirsky on episode #023. He took the time to share his kind opinion about Kevin’s interview and my interviewer skills. You know when someone takes the time to do something like that, it means a lot, especially in a world where people are always “busy”. You know what I mean?

My guest this week, Ed Roberson, is the founder & host of Mountain & Prairie Podcast, the Conservation Director at Palmer Land Trust, and is a devoted dad to 2 little girls 4 and 1 years old and husband to Kim. His personal evolution is full of many adventures beginning with growing up with a supportive family in the South (near my neck of the woods where I grew up); wilderness education at KNOLS in his 20’s; running 50 and 100-mile ultramarathons through the western backcountry; climbing numerous 14er’s, Denali, and Aconcagua; plus earning a BA and MBA with a concentration in finance at Wake Forest University.

I want you to listen for yourself and see what wisdom moments speak to you. Ed is a man that listens to his heart and goes for living full out. He’s committed, curious, and passionate about being an adventurer in every part of his life. He’s our people and I know you’re going to love Ed just like I do. There is no surface conversation here. As a matter of fact, we both agreed we aren’t into surface conversation, we want the real art of conversation and that’s what we had. I have a feeling we’ll talk again because there’s just so much more and I really want to meet his wife, Kim. I love how they met (which you’ll hear about) and he credits her with inspiring him on his personal evolution.
