About this Episode

“If You Weren’t Scared, What Would You Do?”

We sit down with the founder of Cause & Affect, Alan Moy, who is no stranger to fear. With the mantra, “mingling, connecting, and giving back”, Alan organizes and leads charitable events throughout Chicago, drawing in crowds of more than 400 people from all parts of the world.


In this episode, we peer past fear to analyze what holds us back, why it stops us, and how to find relationships that help you overcome your own personal boogeymen.

Additional topics include:

+ What does it mean to be a “tweener”?
+ Why merging your friend groups is good!
+ Worst case scenario planning.
+ Giving yourself excuses for action.
+ Asking for help! 
+ Setting boundaries and expectations.
+ Our distaste of “weather” and “weekend” small talk.
+ Owning up to and being accountable for the things you say.
+ Ideas of escapism.
+ Authenticity and overcoming self-censorship.
+ And Alan’s love of food!

Keep an ear out for the next episode of Discover Your Inner Awesome as we continue to take on life's important questions in order to help multi-passionate people understand themselves and their presence in the world.
