#WeGotGoals is a podcast by aSweatLife.com on which we talk to high achievers about their goals - some they've already accomplished and some they're striving to accomplish in the future. After writing about goals and sharing stories from some very impressive people, we discovered something we didn’t anticipate: asking people about their goals – past and present – gives them an easy way to share their story. And by asking others to share something they were proud of accomplishing and saying something they wanted to achieve in the future aloud, we reinforced two principles we’re passionate about: recognizing your accomplishments and going after what you want. And just writing these stories didn’t seem to do them justice anymore. It seemed fitting that these inspiring people share their journeys themselves, using their own voices. And thus, the #WeGotGoals podcast was born. This podcast is hosted by Cindy Kuzma, Maggie Umberger and Jeana Anderson Cohen of aSweatLife.

Meaningful and consumable
I love how much was packed into such a short format (compared to other podcasts that run for close to 2 hrs). This is an easy addition to my current podcast lineup. Thanks!
Great material for any entrepreneur
I started listening to this podcast to support my cousin, Jeana Anderson Cohen. I'm not overly interested in fitness, but I am an entrepreneur and I am interested in goal setting. I continue to listen to this podcast because it flows really well with where I'm at as an entrepreneur. My big focus for 2017 is goal setting. I'm a part of an accountability group and we encourage each other in our business and personal goals. I've started to keep a notebook handy while listening because I've found some really great ideas and motivational info. Keep up the great work!
Great Motivation for to Help You with Your Goals
I am in love with this podcast. The interviews are so inspiring and filled with such great advice. I've been starting my next long run with them after one becomes available. It's a great way to get advice from some very accomplished people.
