The Mindset to Change Your Life’s Direction, w/ John Brontsema

My whole life was dedicated to baseball from an early time. People say, “Don’t put your identity,” or “You’re not a baseball player. That’s not your identity.” It really is though. While it’s not, it feels like it, because every decision I made, everything I was passionate about was baseball and achieving the next level.



Recapping Our First 30 Podcast Episodes with Danny “HOFF” Hoefelmann | Episode 31 #theSKYLERIRVINEshow

Facebook Live: TAKE 2

Hoff is the mastermind behind the scenes of The Skyler Irvine Show. Producer by day, Cartoon Villain by night, and Family man always; Hoff is a dedicated, hardworking individual and the show would really not be possible without him. He and I have learned a lot over the first 30 episodes, and we are extremely grateful to all of our guests who have shared knowledge, experience, passion, and more on The Skyler Irvine Show thus far.  We talk equipment, how to interview better, things we’ve done wrong, and how Hoff decided to be a complete badass and commit to the pirate hipster Mustache. If you are interested in starting a podcast, or learning more about the production aspect, this is the episode for you!
