My guest this month on the Party in the Back Podcast was teh legendary David Raymond, the original Phillie Phanatic. Dave just finished his first book called the Power of Fun and he shared some examples and stories from the book and his life as a mascot on the podcast. I highly recommend the listen.
I love how Dave has learned the Power of Fun from his epic career and now turned that into his driving force in life. It really started with his boss at the Phillies who send him out as the Phanatic with three words: GO HAVE FUN!
Dave listen and the rest is history.
Here’s hoping you have fun and enjoy the podcast and David’s story. January 2020 Party in the Back Podcast
The Force is FUN is all around us. Just like the Jedi we need to value Fun as a powerful tool to help us become happier, healthier and more productive no matter what is going on in our lives. It is #ThePowerofFun and it can save your life! https://t.co/N2uvvN3ydK pic.twitter.com/lNABdDclms
