Hey! John Roa here. Welcome to my new show. I’ll be the first to admit—I have no clue what I am doing with my own podcast. But it sure is fun! I told my producers and my podcast team—the one thing we will ALWAYS do on The John Roa Show is to do things our own way. No rules. No conforming to a pre-built system. We’ll do things as we see fit. So, with that spirit in mind, we are flipping the first episode on its head. My friend Jordan Harbinger, one of the biggest podcasters in the world and host of the brilliant 'The Jordan Harbinger Show' (we are both really good at naming podcasts), is taking over my very first show. He is going to interview ME so we can all figure out what we are doing here, as well as to hopefully give me a few tips and tricks. After that, I shoot the sh*t with comedian Janelle Draper (http://instagram.com/janellejokes) to talk about how we met, the worst thing I used to eat, and why tattoos are just self-made scars. If you don’t listen to the Jordan Harbinger Show, you need to.

Kevin Conroy Smith is one of a kind. He first built a network of tens of thousands of powerful people and started to host once-in-a-lifetime events—for free—for people inside that network that gained global notoriety. He organically spun that momentum into an experiential event agency that was throwing off millions of dollars in profit. Then a global pandemic hit, that made doing business illegal for Kevin, as groups were no longer allowed to congregate.

This is a harrowing and important episode about entrepreneurship, risk, mental health and perseverance.
