Today's episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to drive meaningful change in their lives and the lives of those around them! Often GREAT leadership is born out of great pain and an unwavering desire to make a difference in the world around you.

Today, I am joined by Josh Schaver, COO of Logan Ag - husband, father of 5, and member of our Ag Leadership Summit. What I love about Josh is that he is a leader who not only invests in his own growth, but consistently and actively implements what he learns into his team and organization. 

With raw honesty, Josh shared the heart-wrenching story of losing his daughter Penelope, and how it shattered his world. Amidst the darkness and soul searching that followed, he found solace in faith and a newfound purpose, igniting a new fire within himself to make her life have a lasting legacy.

We dove into the nitty-gritty of personal growth, with Josh sharing the daily action steps he uses to keep him pointed in the right direction and why the power of self-discipline is so key for leaders to harness. From conquering marathons to daily rituals, he shares how these simple but game changing practices have become pillars of strength, guiding him towards a life of daily intention - peace and results. 

What impressed me to bring him on was the incredible turnaround he has created in his culture by deciding to invest 1 million dollars back into his people - without knowing where that money was coming from! Today we talk about what happens when you raise the standard of how you treat people inside your organization. 

Josh embodies the essence of conscious leadership; his vulnerability, resilience, and unwavering commitment to personal evolution is truly inspiring. I know you will have many gems to take away from today's conversation!
