214. Sam Kabert – Learning From Your Adversities

Today, Lance is joined by a fellow brother from Aubry Marcus’ Fit for Service Fellowship, Sam Kabert. Sam AKA SwagSam has launched several successful businesses (and brands) and was recognized in 2019 as one of the Silicon Valley Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 most successful (and influential) professionals. He is also the founder of WhatUp Silicon Valley, a podcast host, content creator, and successful entrepreneur. Sam opens up to Lance how after a friend’s suicide he realized it was time to stop and smell the roses in life. Shifting his internal monologue, Sam channeled his energy on focusing on his internal growth.  Be sure to listen to the end to hear Lance and Sam talk about their experiences with psychedelics.


Sam answers with, “Surrender.  Resistance creates pain.”
