Updated: May 10
Lou Holtz is credited with saying, ‘In this world you’re either growing or you’re dying, so get in motion and grow.’ Justin Schenck lives by this mantra, measuring each day by his growth in several areas of life. So, what drives Justin? When did he discover his purpose in inspiring others to accept themselves? And how did he learn to overcome big challenges without seeing himself as a victim?
Justin is the host of the Growth Now Movement podcast. He is on a mission to teach the world that it isn’t about where you came from, it’s about the decisions you make today. Justin was named a Top 8 Podcaster to Watch in 2018 by Inc. magazine and selected as an ‘Icon of Influence’ in the new media space. He also serves as a podcast coach and consultant, teaching others how to launch and grow their own podcast.
Today, Justin joins Emerald to explain how his mother’s passing after a 20-year pill addiction inspired him to launch the Growth Now Movement. He speaks to his decision to surround himself with inspiring mentors and his mission to help people learn to love themselves. Justin describes how growth serves as the driving force in his life and how he assesses his progress through daily check-ins.
