The Best of 2014 (Part 1)

By December 28, 2014May 24th, 20192 Comments

This is the time of year for celebration. This is the time of year for giving back. This is the time of year for gratitude.

This is the time of year for reflection.

So let’s do all those things. Welcome to the second annual Best of the RRP Anthology. This is our way of reflecting back. Our way of expressing gratitude. Our way of giving thanks for taking this journey with us.

I pride myself on bringing a wide variety of personalities, opinions and attitudes to the show. When I look back over 2014, even I am surprised by how many incredibly interesting and unique people and perspectives I was honored to entertain and share with you. Second listens brought new insights. Another reminder of what a gift this show has been to me. A gift that gives and keeps on giving.

A compendium of some of my favorite conversations of 2014, the next two episodes of the podcast are certain to catapult you into the new year inspired.

If you’ve been with me all along, these offerings will bring certain insights back into the forefront of your consciousness as you contemplate your trajectory heading into the new year. If you’re new to the show, then these episodes will definitely inspire you to peruse the catalog and listen in full to some of the guests and or episodes you may have missed. Links to the full episodes excerpted in this anthology are enumerated below.

It has been an incredible year. My blessings are many. My gratitude is overflowing. This is my way way of saying thank you. I appreciate you. Here’s to an extraordinary 2015 — the year we manifest our greatest dreams into reality. Join me, and let’s do this thing together.

Peace + Plants,

If you’re miffed because we left your personal favorite out, I get it.  Every guest has been extraordinary, so this is a thankless task. It’s by no means intended as the definitive last word on the best of the best by any means – just a great, interesting and dynamic mix. Tune in again on New Year’s Day for Part 2.

    2014 has been an amazing year of transformation. These great RRP conversations have been so instrumental in affecting personal positive growth. I am grateful to you, your co-host (Julie), your producer (Tyler) and all the great guests who’ve been so authentic on the RRP this past year. Best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous 2015 to all! Namaste 🙂

    Hey Rich, Thanks a lot for all you’re sharing, we very much do appreciate, even over here in Europe 🙂 I was wondering if you could give us a tip regarding the sport shoes you’re using. It is not that easy here in Belgium to find 100 % vegan shoes but luckily we have the internet. Would you have any recommendation for the best sport shoes you would be using ? Thanks a lot for your input,
    Regards to all your team,
