“You can live to see the sunrise, or you could die, and...I chose life” -Dave Conley

Kim is so excited to interview David Conley. Founder of Limitl.es, this man turned his life around by just asking himself the right questions.

After fumbling out of college, Dave was invited to be the project manager of AOL and be a government executive but never really found happiness in both. In an unexpected turn of events, his life crumbled when his wife passed away; he gained weight and didn’t really know what he wanted to do from that point on. Despite the shortcomings, Dave opted to choose life. He got up on his feet and made use of his experiences to create a business and a brand for himself. Now he is helping clients to meet themselves and make important environmental changes.

Take a ride with Kim and Dave as they talk about Dave’s tragic experiences, personal successes, and learnings that made him the man that he is today. Stay tuned as Kim gets a surprise interview herself.

“When we force a requirement around a referral, it’s just not going to work, because what we have to understand, the human dynamic and the psychology why a referral actually happens? It’s not about us.”

Stacey Brown Randall would claim that she had her masters in Communication and Ph.D. in business failure, but this is where it all started.
