The Stuff That Matters with Karen Rinaldi and David Romanelli

Karen and David are authors who’ve released books that are less about the extreme and more about the in between—the important stuff in life. Listen now.


Karen Rinaldi is the author of It’s Great to Suck at Something, a book about the joy she found in pursuit of surfing, a sport she says she’ll never be good at. David Romanelli wrote Life Lessons from the Oldest and Wisest. After losing his last living grandparent, David realized that elderly people often have some of the best underrated and underutilized advice about what really matters.

I am excited to do this episode because we’re focusing on the things that happen on our way to reaching our goals, and along the journey of our lives. We talk about why totally sucking at something can be awesome, how to let go of our egos, and why perfectionism and being overly busy can be a trap. We also dive into how we can focus less on our social media feeds, and focus more on the relationships we have, the way we make people feel, and the energy we put into the world.

Listen to this episode if:

  • You want to try something, but you’re afraid you’ll suck.
  • You are over being busy.
  • You want to find your community.
  • You are ready to focus on what’s important in life.
