Go to #myDreamChase Wall
My life has gotten very busy as of late and so this anniversary snuck up on me and did not leave me a lot of time to truly plan. What you see here and on social media throughout the 21st is something that came together because of the shared belief in chasing dreams.
It's been 365 days, and here we are. Time flies when you’re having fun, and it doesn’t matter if that statement is a cliché, because it's true. Over the summer, I attended a conference called Podcast Movement, which highlighted a theme about the importance of story and the impact it can have on the lives of others. And after 59 amazing episodes, and over 16,000 downloads, I can happily say that Chasing Dreams is making an impact on the lives of people listening to the show from around the world.
The story of Chasing Dreams has just begun and I’m excited for where it can go.
I. To commemorate a year in existence, I'm kicking off our very first hashtag campaign, which is where you come in. Take a picture of yourself in the midst of chasing your dream, holding one of the Chasing Dreams signs, or holding your own sign to inspire others to chase their dreams. Post the picture to either Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #mydreamchase. Throughout the day check out the hashtag wall over at chasingdreamsHQ.com/mydreamchase and see what people are posting all in one place.
II. Additionally, I'm holding my very first Facebook Live event which will take place on Sept. 21 at 7pm EST. I would love to interact with other dream chasers, take your questions, share your stories, and have some fun with this. Of course, I can’t be there by myself so be there or be square! If you miss out, I'm going to see if I can include the recording below for your viewing pleasure.
III. However, amongst all the “celebrating,” I don’t want you to forget that a new episode was released today. It features my friend for life, Mr. Cornell Thomas. This is an episode I have told several people in my circle they should listen to and I would say the same for you if you’ve ever asked yourself, “why me?”
IV. And last but far from least, a thank you gift for you. The mission of Chasing Dreams is to motivate, educate, and activate dream chasers. This part of the celebratory activities is intended to help activate you to chase your dreams. I reached out to different businesses with services and/or products that I use in my own personal dream chase and asked if they could extend a special offer to other dream chasers in order to help them chase their own dreams. You'll find their special offer below. I'd like to thank each of them for their kindness and immediate response to my request. If an offer has an expiration it is stated, so don't delay.
TLDR: Celebration Plans:
When I made the decision to do something to celebrate the anniversary of the podcast, I knew that I wanted some component to be helpful to other dream chasers and listeners of the show. So I reached out to the different services and products I use in my own dream chase and asked if they could do anything for others who are chasing dreams. More than a few said yes and below are the special offers and discounts they have provided in honor of the anniversary. If you see a (*) that indicates an affiliate relationship.

To be clear though, I have personally used and still use the below services and products and highly recommend each of them.
