Once he got his foot in the door, he really got to explore a passion he didn't know he had. I know you'll enjoy this episode as much as I did.

E: 26- My "Why"
I truly believe that the most important thing in creating something from scratch is understanding your "Why". This may sound corny, cheesy, or any other acronym that you would use to dismiss the importance of it, but I assure you, it's not. It's one of the main reasons people either give up, or burn out, there's nothing beyond hitting the live button, recording for YouTube, "Networking" becomes disingenuous, and it eventually becomes less fulfilling. If this is something you struggle with, this is the right podcast for you. I share with you the main mission of my personal content, my "Why" overall, and my "Why" of the podcast" in hopes that you'll find yours, too.Support the show (

Street has been not only an inspiration to me but to so many others, he has a genuine heart of gold and is firm in his message. His growth has been a direct result of the grind that he puts in on a daily basis. We cover everything from his childhood gaming, Black Lives Matter, and where he truly wants to take his content.
