Why Am I Scott Valdez

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Scott Valdez.  Scott started his career in marketing; after all, he did study that in college.  Then once he got busy in life he tried dating like so many others online.  Guess what, he stunk at it.  Thus was born his new career.  After hiring his first creative writer to help him craft messages he expanded and now has nearly 200 people on staff helping folks find partners.  Along the way he’s learned a lot of valuable lessons…like how to travel and live in a dozen different countries in 10 years; the dude’s interesting.  If you’ve enjoyed this or any of the podcasts I’m asking you to share it with at least one person; help me grow! I hope you enjoy this chat with Scott.

Why Am I Chè Monique

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Chè Monique.  She was kind enough to don her human form to talk to me about her life as a mermaid.  On the surface it seems pretty simple, but as soon as you put a little time into it, you realize it is this extremely rich and nuanced culture…it seems most of the nuance consists of puns, so prepare yourself.  I was initially drawn to Chè because of this insanely inclusive community she’s developed called “The Society Of Fat Mermaids.”  In there is pure childlike joy being shared along with things I never expected to ponder like…what wigs are best underwater and how’s the foot pouch on this tail.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy this enchanted conversation with Chè.

Why Am I Robin Douglass

Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today.  My guest this go around is Robin Douglass.  She is a solopenure, an often speaker, runs support groups, and a quite successful podcaster.  She found her voice when she had a sudden epiphany at 54 “Holy cow, I’m a lesbian!”  While coming out late she realized that there was a lack of information and resources for this ever-growing population of folks.  So, she did what anyone would do, she dedicated her time and energy towards setting up a support system to save every single late bloomer LOL.  I honestly learned a LOT, but I suppose that’s why she does it.  At any rate, I hope you enjoy this conversation with Robin.
