My mission is to help you have more fun than anyone else you know.

Todd Youngblood

The “more fun” notion first creeped into Intentionally Vicarious host, Todd Youngblood’s brain back in 1982. At the time, he was an instructor in IBM’s legendary Sales School in Poughkeepsie, NY. Tradition dictated that the manager of each class deliver a few words of wisdom at the graduation ceremony, so…

He figured why not speak from the heart and tell it as he saw it? The hard work of career success must also be fun. And to get through to all those confident, hard-charging, Type A sales types, he decided to throw down a gauntlet.

Todd’s attitude hasn’t changed much in last 30+ years. Today, he’s on a mission to provide answers to these types of questions:

You’ve figured out how to support yourself, now what? What else do you need to reach real fun and fulfillment in your life? Personal/play time is limited and the options are endless… How to choose???

A heavy dose of vicarious experience is the only way to explore enough options.

Tune in to the Intentionally Vicarious Podcast for conversations and insights. Live vicariously through the guests and host, then grab and run with what works for you.

…and since sometimes the show host simply can’t keep his mouth shut about some issue, we’ll throw in the occasional “toddcast” – a periodically coherent rant about something or another…

Oh by the way… What’s your IV Score?
