TV Producer Josh Davis on Saying Yes To Your Dreams

Josh Davis is a TV producer who has worked on “What Would You Do?” and “Rossen Reports” on the Today Show. He joins me on the show to talk about how his role, and how following his dreams as young boy in a very small town has led him to where he is today. I think you’ll love his outlook on life and his positive attitude. I loved getting to talk to him about what goes on behind the scenes of creating a television show, and of course, loved hearing about his French Bulldog, Jolene. Join me as I interview TV producer Josh Davis on saying yes to your dreams.

    I love this and totally want to go listen to the podcast. Sometimes I feel like my dreams are on hold so I can help my kids reach theirs.

  2. My dreams as a little one were to have kids (done that) and now that they are growing up I am making new dreams! Though I kinda think being a princess is never going to fall into place. LOL!!

  3. Wonderful topics you covered. I love your podcasts. My hubs works on the Today show occassionally, I have to ask if he knows Josh

  4. Thank you Eileen 🙂 That’s so cool about your husband – if he’s at 30 Rock, he’s probably run into Josh.

  5. I think Josh has a lot of good insights; it definitely takes hard work, but I know you can do it, Ana! Your blog is awesome and you are so dedicated 🙂

  6. It’s hard when we have kids, especially when they are small. Depending on what your dreams are, though, maybe there are some small baby steps you can take to start to get there? 🙂

  7. I love to hear how others have realized their dreams! It is something that my husband and I are working on. We are definitely in a much better space as two of our three are out of the toddler stage 🙂

  8. It’s always inspiring to hear from people that have led amazing careers. Even if they start out as small fish in very small ponds. You always interview the most interesting people!

  9. i have never heard of him but his story sounds inspiring. i think dreaming big is key… even if you dont reach that one dream; it’ll take you somewhere else. somewhere you belong.

  10. Omg love this!!!! Dreams are what keep me going most days. I won’t stop until I reach them all 😉 need to set an example to my little that anything is possible.
