We've all day dreamed about it - becoming a pro. What would it be like? Well, besides getting to do the thing you love everyday, you'd probably get free gear, meet incredible people, get your photo taken, maybe travel the world. You might even get paid. We call it living the dream. And it's good work if you can get it. But, how do you get the gig? And is it really all that it's cracked up to be? Zack Giffin and Timmy O'Neill share their stories of finding the spotlight and moving beyond it.

  • Loved the term Timmy used -- elective suffering. So true, and why do we do it?

  • That was awesome - it inspired and gave me determination to go BIG! Great job to Zach Giffin ~ you are never too old to be an expert - no better words said.

  • Wow, thank you! This was one of the most moving DBD episodes I've listened to! Definitely brought a tear to my eye at a couple of points. I've always appreciated Timmy for his great enthusiasm and wacky, infectious humor. But you really were able to show a more profound, grateful, and thoughtful side of him. Kudos to Timmy for his good work! Now, that is inspiring! As he said, "the rock doesn't care." But Timmy sure does. Great episode!
