    This is Episode 1610: The Possibility Handbook Sessions, Part 1, or, Let the Magic Begin. The image above was the first thing I saw upon arriving at The Possibility Alliance earlier this year.

    With that in mind, today is the first interview Ethan Hughes and I recorded on our work for creating new possibilities. Herein Ethan invites us to join The Possibility Alliance, a place much larger than just the space he shares with his community and over a thousand visitors a year. The Possibility Alliance is about You. Your life. Your work. Your daring to dream and experiment.

    This is but the beginning of a new road to wander, with the future wide open and wonderful before us as The Possibility Handbook begins to take shape. Though the podcast is able to continue thanks to listeners and sponsors, such as PermieKids, The Good Seed Company, and Your Garden Solution, the creation of this toolkit for transformaion can only happen with you and your support. Now that the trip to Missouri is complete, plenty of tasks remain to birth this book and everything that goes with it, and there is a lot more material to share than will wind up in print, into the world.

    To accomplish that in the show notes for this episode are links where you can pledge differing amounts, from as little as $10 up to $100 and others in between, that go directly towards this project. As thanks you can receive a variety of rewards including early drafts as they become available, transcripts of the audio interviews with Ethan, full access to all of the original audio, as opposed to the edited piece you’ll hear today, as well as e-book and physical copies of the final handbook. Together we can bring about the possibility to change the world.

    Get in touch, even if it’s just for a friendly voice and a bit of support.

      Hi Scott, not sure if that’s just me but Podcast Addict on my Android phone didn’t recognize this as valid audio file. Never had any problems before with your podcast. Thanks for all you do!

        Hi Leon,

        I had a similar problem which took a bit of work this morning to correct. Refreshing the show in Podcast Addict did not update the stream, however, which required unsubscribing and resubscribing to the podcast to retrieve the correct file.
