Wow, is this really the 8th week of the podcast? I can’t believe I have had it running for two months! I am super excited by how well it has gone, and what I’ve personally learned and gained from every single interview and challenge! I hope that you feel the same way, and am so grateful for every person who I’ve interviewed, every person who has recommended someone else for me to interview, and every single person who has listened so far! I guess it’s time for this week’s Bold Moves Podcast Episode 15: Hemad Fadaifar!
Let’s talk about it being a small world, especially when Milwaukee (or as some call it – “Smallwaukee” is concerned. Remember Ryan “The Buddha” Baudhuin? Knowing him set a chain of events that led to three of our eight Bold Moves interviews! Buddha introduced me to Hemad, as they were on a rugby team together, and Hemad introduced me to Shae McNamara! Now it’s time to learn more about the “middle man,” Hemad!
Although I bring up the small world connection to Hemad, Buddha, and Shae, the world gets even smaller for Hemad, because he loves to explore it! Here’s a video with some great pictures that show exactly what I mean, and of course you can listen to the audio in the embedded player, or on Apple Podcasts or Stitcher!
Though he claims he’s not a Persian fortune cookie, he has tons of advice on life and being the best version of yourself!
In our interview, we chatted about his submission video for the Stay Thirsty Grant. Here’s that awesome video!
And, of course, you have to check out the trailer for how the whole adventure went!
What do you think? Do you think you have it in you to do those three trips? Let’s check out some more pics of Hemad and his adventures below!

During our chat, we talked about Simon Sinek’s TED talk. Here it is, in case you’re not familiar!
Here are Hemad’s book recommendations*! The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, books by Seth Godin, who he says makes complex ideas seem simple, and is fantastic for anyone interested in marketing.
As far as where to find Hemad, you can find him and his projects at the links below:
Hemad’s Twitter. Hemad’s Instagram. Hemad’s family businesses – Persian Rug Gallery and Oriental Rug Gallery. Hemad & his friend’s Restaurant, Movida (which has AMAZING food – and this is from personal experience!), and his latest project, The Loom House. Here’s a picture of his snap code for Snapchat users!
As always, I have a giveaway lined up to go with Hemad’s episode, and this one is quite epic! If you follow me on facebook, or subscribe to the blog, you may have seen my post about how Tommy and I proposed to his groomsmen with an amazing gift package. Well, the amazing sponsors of the gift package, Saxx Underwear, Primal Kitchen Foods, Purely Elizabeth, and 4505 Chicharonnes have each given me an extra item from the groomsmen package to give to you, and in the case of the Saxx, it will be a coupon code, so you can order the style and size of your choice! This is an awesome package – perfect for you to keep, or to start your Holiday shopping! You can enter here below, and enter often! 😉
