Freedom-Cast Leaving Normal Behind | Motivation | Inspiration | Goal Setting | Careers | Relationships
About This Show
Normal is boring. Normal doesn’t change the world. Normal is insignificant. I don’t want to be normal. Do you?
Ever heard of someone that went to college, got married, bought a house, had kids, and then grandkids, etc? Of course. Maybe you are that person? No problem. But you probably think there is more to life than just following a “normal” pattern? Maybe you don’t want to just go through the motions? Maybe you want to actually make a difference and to leave a legacy?
Freedom-Cast is about breaking free of the pressures of modern society and challenging the status quo. Ever wanted to leave your 9-5 job? Well, you can, and you DON’T need a million dollars to do so. Ever wanted to NOT be in debt? It’s not only possible, it's probable. Ever desired deeper, more meaningful connections with the people around you? You can have that too.
Martin Luther King Jr. said “Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.”
We personally believe that every person has limitless potential to change the world, but we also believe that most of us squander that potential at times (myself included).
Life is not meant to be lived the same way by every single person. You don’t HAVE to do things a certain way just because your family thinks it's the best decision for you. You can be like my wife and me and pay $1000 dollars for our wedding. True story.
Challenging the status quo is so important for a life well lived and a dollar well saved.
Have you ever felt like you are just spinning your wheels? Unsure of what you want to do with your life? Unsure if you even have anything meaningful to contribute?
There is a chance to start over, and it starts by believing in yourself.
This show will discuss topics of why challenging the status quo is important, how you can find purpose in your life, and how to achieve long term happiness.
We will also share our own struggles. Yes, we did go to a private college, Yes we did spend a lot of money, and no we don’t really utilize our degrees, but we are happy nonetheless.
What we know is that we don’t want to live like everyone else, following the “normal” pattern of life in an attempt to arrive safely at death. We want to make a difference and leave a lasting legacy.
The majority of guests on this show will share their own life paths and what they do. We will be bringing on people.Read more »

Episode Thirty-Nine: Kicking Stuff to the Curb
2 days ago
Today Miranda (with color commentary from Jordan) is going to tell you how and why you need to get rid of stuff. Miranda is a huge proponent of having a clean and clear home.
We talked about her strive towards minimalism in a previous podcast episode, but we wanted to share more.
In particular, we want to talk about stuff. We all have it, and we want to talk about the effects it has on our lives.
Stuff takes up not only physical space, but also mental space as well. How is this so? It's hard to get stuff done if we have a lot of physical stuff around clogging up our work space and home.
It's not about getting rid of everything, no way! It's about clearing a space in your life for more important things like time with family, time with God, and time spent reaching your goals. Stuff isn't bad in and of itself, what's bad is having too much of it.
It's a huge deal what you buy and what you put in your home. We are consumers and accumulators by nature, and again that's not all bad, but if it's not managed and kept under control it can get out of hand.
Want a quick win? Start with your clothes and go from there. Give away clothes that you don't need that are piling up and cluttering your life. Get a trash bag and pick a few things and get rid of them NOW.
You can look awesome and stylish for cheap.
This is especially important for Christian's to get right. We are not supposed to store up treasures here on this earth, we are supposed to be storing up and looking forward to treasures in heaven.
Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
You leave a legacy by the lives you touch, not by all of the creepy dolls you keep in your closet.
DON'T keep giant Tupperware containers full of photos. Turnem or burnem. Sort them or get rid of them. Don't just keep stuff around just because you don't know what to do with it or "you'll need it someday."
Live in a way that you aren't only consuming, but also in a way where you are creating and giving back.
Giving stuff away and having less encourages community. Need a ride? Ask. Need a certain tool? Ask! People are usually more than happy to lend a hand or share what they have. We all don't need a full set of top of the line power tools.
Giving stuff away helps you learn to value your time.
What can you make it without?
Best of luck to you, and thanks for listening!
