Ep 086 Personal Freedom comes with Personal Responsibility with Rich Weingart

Jul 6, 2020

rich weingart

After an earlier career in finance and a stint with teaching, Rich has spent the last 20 years helping build an insurance brokerage firm which is still his profession. In his ‘other’ life, Rich has spent the last 10 years coaching his kids in various sports, and, learning as many lessons as he taught, or maybe more. He loves being a Dad, coaching and leading.

He is active in the community and values making an impact in other people’s lives as he tries to be the best version of himself he can be, while also taking himself lightly (when he knows how).

Rich’s podcast, A Richer Life, was inspired by a mission of creating A Richer Life for himself and inspiring others to do the same. He is excited to explore other peoples courageous journeys and help encourage others to dive deep into whatever ‘fear’ is holding them back and go for whatever ‘it’ is for them.
