E120: Near Death Experiences, Spirituality, Getting A Grant, & Rewiring W/ Branden Densmore
On this episode we speak to recovery / life coach Branden Densmore out of Maine. Branden and I met online connecting on his posts on the influence of previous guest Jesse Harless’s new book that I’ve been working on the audio book version on while this was done. Branden is also on a path of helping the recovery community enter into entrepreneurship. We speak through his history, recovery, and his current business. We speak through having natural curiosity, getting a grant, spirituality, organized religion, being different in school growing up,, and investing in yourself. Good for creatives for mind set and raising capital and great for entrepreneurs for the story and more.

“ I started working at some non-profit organizations, but it was like my needs weren’t being met. I would give, give, and give but not really receive.” - Branden Densmore
“ There’s something you’re not getting or there’s a mission that’s not being fulfilled that sparks you to be an entrepreneur. This isn’t filling me up everyday.” - Host Dave Swillum
“ We all have the ability to choose our meanings in life, if something happens in our life we can choose to interpret that however we want. People will give us meanings all day long but we can choose our own meaning. Give up on the positive opinions of others.” - Branden Densmore
