What is Gained from Letting Go? (Quinn Spinn Solo Mission #9)

As we continue our journeys as humans and entrepreneurs, we often come face to face with the reality that nothing lasts forever. We all encounter situations where we must let go — of situations, habits, and even relationships.

Letting go can be hard, but it doesn’t come without silver linings.

Scotty Rock Bares All? Cashing in on that Beanie Baby Collection, and Spelunking in the Outhouse (ft. The OG Quinn Spinn Family)

Does Scotty really bare all on this episode? Only one way to find out, and that is to listen! And, even if he doesn’t, perhaps there are clues about what you need to do to make it happen. 😉

Truthfully, the episode title is long enough as it is, but that doesn’t even begin to cover how many topics we covered in an hour, and how off-the-rails this conversation went. When the OG crew gets together, you should expect nothing less.


Coming Back from the Pandemic and ‘Charis Song’: A Conversation with Leah Jean

What is ‘Good Art,’ Anyway?

Today is a very special day: it’s 8 1/2 years to the date of the very day The Quinn Spinn was conceived.

Through the years, we’ve had the chance to appreciate art — and especially, music — in all of its forms. All the while, we’ve tinkered with our own art form (this show), as we’ve experimented with different ways to communicate our truth.

In the process, we’ve learned that true art cannot be put into a box.


You Have No Time to Waste (Solo Mission #4)

“Death gives meaning to our lives. It gives importance and value to time. Time would become meaningless if there were too much of it.” -Ray Kurzweil, The Age of Spiritual Machines

We all have finite opportunities — to create, to inspire, and to love. What are you doing with yours?

How are you spending your dash?


Stop Burning Yourself Out (Solo Mission #2)

Focusing on your passion is a noble pursuit — however, your passion is only one part of life’s puzzle.

This Quinn Spinn Solo Mission poses a very important question: what are you doing to achieve balance and meet your own needs, so that you can continue showing up as the best version of you, in business and in life?
