Mr. Happy Living here…
And I’m happy to be broadcasting from WYTV7 in the beautiful Queen City… Charlotte, North Carolina!

Show Notes:

:47 – Roger, welcome to the Something Significant Show! 

:57 – Please take a minute to tell our audience what you’re doing these days to make your Mark of Significance on the World…  

2:57 – What do you do on a regular basis to create all the CAPACITY you need to take good care of yourself, and your loved ones, and still have plenty left over to give to others?  

6:35 – How does a Kaizen state of mind help you increase your personal capacity to continuously become more so you can continuously give more? 

9:15 – What is something you do, that other guitar makers don’t?

11:15 – Was there a specific moment or event or crisis or inspiration that ‘revealed to you’ the PURPOSE you were meant to live?  

14:30 – Sponsor Break : Dry Farm Wines *Grab a bottle of sugar-free wine, for a penny*

16:50 – Have you found that giving your time and talents and treasures has been a pathway for discovering your purpose, and transcending difficulties you’ve faced, and for bringing real meaning into your life? 

20:15 – How does it make you feel when you’re giving to others thru the work you were put on this planet to do and an artist who bought a Fritz Brothers guitar tells you it “makes ‘em sound better than they really are…”  

Or when you hear your own music being played on the radio, or tv, or on records  

Or when you see and hear your guitars being played by famous artists on TV and radio. 

Or, speaking of famous artists, when you receive a letter from the legendary George Harrison of the Beatles, praising a guitar that you made just for him. 

Roger, how does all that make you feel?
