MWIE 008: Todd Cochrane (Loses His Mic)

There is no shortage of inspiring quotes about dealing with setbacks in life:

  • “Make lemonade out of lemons.”
  • “It’s not how many times you get knocked down, but how many times you get back up again.”
  • “Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail until they succeed.”
  • “When a door is closed, a window is opened.”

And I could list hundreds more…

But far more powerful than any quote is the story of someone who has actually proven these proverbs to be true. Someone who has squeezed every last drop of juice out of the lemon they were handed and produced a tall, cold, sweet glass of lemonade.

Todd Cochrane is such a person. After a swimming accident put him in the hospital for several weeks, Todd made a career decision that not only changed his life…it landed him in the Hall of Fame.

Todd Cochrane is a published author, speaker, and the CEO of Raw Voice and Blubrry…representing 75,000 audio and video content creators, providing advertising opportunities, distribution, hosting and more. Also, Todd lives in Hawaii and was inducted into the Podcast Hall of Fame in 2015.
