Many of us are dealing with serious personal challenges -- challenges we don't hear others talking about openly. That can create a sense of isolation.
I created Go Go Stop Go to create a greater sense of connection by sharing people's stories of dealing with major events, issues, and turning points in their lives. I was inspired to start this project after losing my mother in August 2016.
I’ve been doing better month by month, and having deeper conversations with people about loss and other turning points in their lives has helped. Once I started opening up, other people told me about the issues they're dealing with, including physical and emotional health, relationship, career, loss, and more.
I live in San Francisco with my wife and two kids. Professionally, I work as a product manager, leading teams of engineers and designers to build valuable software products. Normally my life is very busy -- go go go. I've taken some time away from work to take better care of myself and re-connect with family and friends. I've also used the time to work on this project, which has given me a renewed sense of purpose in life.
I can share your story. If you or someone close to you is dealing with a big issue -- in my case it’s been the loss of a loved one, but it could be relationship, career, health, or something else -- I’d be honored to share your story through this show. Everyone is welcome, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or nationality. Record a SHORT voice memo about your story and email it to GGSGpodcast@gmail.com. Include your name and phone number so I can follow up with you.
Stickers! For a limited time, I have Go Go Stop Go stickers. If you want some, send me an email with your mailing address and I'll mail them to you free of charge.
