A First for Everything

Welcome to my very first blog post! Wow, after months of talking about it, it’s finally here. The Shiv Show podcast and The Shiv Show blog has officially been launched! I’m #blessed and I can feel it!

I won’t repeat who I am or what my story is (because you can read the ‘My Story’ section on shivrad.com), but I will take a few seconds to tell you why I’ve started this podcast.


To be completely honest, I personally find motivation when I listen to other peoples’ stories. When they talk about their trials and tribulations, their challenges, and the dark paths they’ve taken in life, it humanises me…and in turn, it
humanises them. I connect with them because I realise that I’m not the only one with challenges in my life. There are billions of people in this world, each with some sort of challenge that they are facing. When people tell me their stories, I tend to find a little of myself in them (the stories), and I really listen to how they ended up finding a light at the end of the tunnel. That’s HUGE when it comes to positivity. There I was feeling sorry for myself not realising that everyone in this world has faced some hardships in their lives, and you can learn a thing or two from the journey that they took to find the light. THIS is why I love to listen to peoples’ stories.

Now, I wouldn’t want all that knowledge to be kept from you, would I? Not at all! This is why The Shiv Show was created…so I can share the knowledge with the hopes of it helping someone, or many for that matter. I hope you listen, I hope you enjoy, and I hope you learn! If you’d like any more info about me, please visit shivrad.com.

Episode 1 is titled “A stab in the right direction” and is literally all about me :D. And I did this on purpose…with the hopes of you connecting with me. Listen in and tell me what you think! Don’t forget to leave a review on Apple Podcasts.
