S3-I1 – Tanner Gers – Not letting obstacles get in the way of your goals

Tanner Gers


I met Tanner online in one of the Facebook groups I frequent. Tanner, like me, is a motivational speaker and podcaster. I heard Tanner’s story on several podcasts and I was impressed and inspired by Tanner’s ability to overcome the obstacles put in front of him.

After hearing Tanner’s story, I wanted to interview him for Goal Getting Podcast so you could hear him, learn from him and understand that we don’t have to let obstacles keep us from achieving our goals.

I was attending a National Speaker’s Association (@NSASpeaker ) Video Lab in Tempe, Arizona. I posted I was in Tempe on my Facebook page and Tanner, a Facebook friend, connected on Facebook and said he would love to meetup while I was in town, since he lived nearby.

I met up with Tanner and his lovely wife for dinner and we went back to my hotel. We both had been wanting to speak to each other and interview each other on our podcasts. So, we did!.  We met in the hotel lobby, with the music playing and other NSA members chatting in the background.

Listen to Tanner’s story on Goal Getting Podcast.

  • How he quiets the inner voices.
  • How giving forgiveness made his life better.
  • How to use breathing to help make your life better.
