John Michael Covey- Rising Star Real Estate Investor and Developer
Jason Mudd here- like many things in my life, serendipity played a large part in how I met John Michael Covey. I didn't seek him out, nor did he seek me out. But as he was researching real estate contacts in my town of Louisville, KY he came across an agent that knew of a property that I had which may have been of interest to John and she reached out to me. I wasn't actively looking to sell but I'm always open to talking so we arranged a meeting and tour. I'm not shy about asking questions and I do my best to be aware of the vibe I'm getting from people and it was there that John and I began talking and realized we had more in common than we thought. John didn't come from money, wasn't the best student, and wasn't located in an area that one typically associates with a booming real estate market. As he says in the podcast, his town in California just recently got a Walmart. But he does have a strong faith was instilled in him by his adoptive parents, and I believe that has been one of the best tools that he has been able to leverage on his journey thus far. And I say thus far because his story is really only beginning. At 32 he has quickly taken action and made moves in the last few years which has completely changed his lot in life. His mindset on being a continual student helps him hone his vision for the future and I am confident that his biggest things are yet to come. And I'm very excited to be able to have a front row seat for them. So check out this candid conversation with John Michael Covey. You might hear some things that you can relate to. You're gonna love it!

Don Michael Jr Is Finding His Groove As A Rap Artist At Age 42
Host Jason Mudd talked with songwriter and hip hop/rap artist Don Michael Jr. about his road to success. Like many people, becoming great means making mistakes and learning by doing. The fact is that there is no replacement for experience. Something that really attracted me to Don Michael was his positive mindset, which is hugely helpful for anyone who is trying to create and make an impact. The world is full of critics and any amount of positive thought can do wonders with how a person views things that happen to them. Like yoga has taught me, everything and everyone is good and bad. It's just how you look at it. Introduced to the music industry by his father, Don Michael showed an interest in creation around age 7 by figuring out how to essentially sample tracks and mix using his Fisher-Price turntable. His parents recognized his talent and encouraged him from the beginning. At 11 after asking for a keyboard for Christmas, his dad took the cue and went ahead and gifted him with a professional Yamaha unit. He began composing and playing, eventually leading him to the songwriting world. DMJ has seen his fare share of hiccups on this road, but as of late is experiencing a new level of recognition. He isn't what you'd expect for an up and coming rapper, as he's been on the scene for his entire life- all 42 years of it. Check out our talk and download his latest album titled 'This Is Not Music'. Follow Don Michael on TickTok and Instagram @Don_MichaelJR. Check out his website DonMichaelMusic.com.

Antigona Mehani Is Helping To Define A Better American Dream #502LeaderSeries Show
Antigona Mehani came to the USA at age 11. Her home country is Kosovo, a war-torn state in southeastern Europe which as subject to a territorial dispute with Serbia. Her childhood was one of survival and didn't have a concept of a future that I grew up planning for. She credits this with a rushed path to adulthood and the self-awareness and compassion that has led her to be a mentor, advisor, and advocate for countless refugees, immigrants, and anyone else who feels underserved by a system that maintains that it was created for people just like her. War-torn is a relative term, and we have many war-torn families and communities right here in the US. Right here in Louisville, KY. Check out this conversation that was supposed to run about 30 minutes but ended up being almost 90. It's just that good. If you want to connect with Antigona or learn more about her work, please look her up on Facebook at @antigonemehani. You can find out more about the American Community Center, where she serves as Director of Development, at http://americanacc.org/about-us/staff. Thanks for listening!

Defining Work #OnMuddsMiind
A very funny comedian who left the party way too early, Mitch Hedberg, has a bit that references the cheesy 80's commercials that would take a product and run over it with a steam roller to prove the product's durability. Or something. But Mitch was smart. Even better, he was cleaver. So he made the turn a question: "well what runs over the steamroller to assure it's quality?" So what's my point? My point is that pretty much everything, at some point, is held to a standard. This includes words, which, regardless of how you or I choose to use them, have a set meaning that was made long before you or me Yet somehow we still mess them up. Here's a little rant from me about the real definition of 'work'..

Nicki Potter Puts The 'Slay' in "Slay By Nicki J" #502LeaderSeries Podcast
It's funny how life can come full circle. And it's awesome to be able to follow up with someone that you remember getting started. Especially when they were getting started on Instagram, during the 2015-2016 period where everybody, and I do mean everybody, was on a mission to make the next hot social brand. I remember seeing @SlayByNickiJ and being impressed with the before and after photos they were posting and how often they were sending them out. I have followed the brand online since then, and to be honest I'm not really sure why. But all the while I kept wondering to myself "who is this 'Nicki J'"? Fast forward to the end of 2019 and her Instagram account has over 13,300 followers! She has such a solid reputation that some of her clients travel from as far as Arizona just to see her. That alone says a lot about the quality and professionalism that she provides. I sat down with Nicki Potter and Julie Robbins, nurse/aesthetics injection professional, for the #502LeaderSeries show on The Serendipitous Channel. We talk about her journey to success, the struggles of running a business, and the gratitude she has kept from day 1. Have a listen! And check out YesLouisville.com for more!

Fighting for Family #502LeaderSeries Podcast
Adoption has, for a long time, been one of those taboo topics that most people haven't really been too quick to openly discuss. And that's a shame. It's one of those topics that, if you're not or haven't adopted, you probably don't know too much about it. And if you are or have adopted, you may be wrestling with some of the pseudo-stigmas that sometimes fall in line with things that aren't understood. But don't get it twisted- adoption is a wonderful thing! November is National Adoption Month, a time to celebrate the families and individuals that said 'Yes' to a bigger picture and raise awareness to a necessary cause that transcends social, political, racial and financial boundaries. The blanket awareness also helps those children and families hoping for adoption, to encourage them to create their family in the future. Christina Dettman is Executive Director of Public Affairs for the Cabinet of Health and Family Services, and a board member of Wednesday's Child, a non-profit organization that grew out of the WLKY weekly news feature highlighting Kentuckiana children open to adoption. Listen in on this week's episode of the 502 Leader Series Podcast to learn about the Dettman's journey, how they continue to fight for their family, and how you can explore adoption/foster care if you think they may be the right fit for you.
