I’m back with Diana Pavlac Glyer, the award winning writer who spent 40 years studying all things C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien with a special focus on the power of their infamous writer’s group, The Inklings.

We’re back for part two as I focus on taking the essence of what propelled these writers to bring monumental works such as Lord of The Rings and Chronicles of Narnia, and discussing how we can emulate them to get our greatest works out of ourselves, by helping get them out of each other.

I am taking Diana’s research and counsel to heart and putting structure into place so I can spur and spar with peers and help each other further our respective efforts.

I’m banding together with fellow influencers; authors, speakers, podcasters, coaches, consultants, leaders, agents, to help each other increase our influence and expand our reach.

You can review it at drivencounsel.com, where you are welcome to inquire for your own interest with me, or if you are looking for a different makeup of a mastermind group.

You can dig into Diana’s research on The Inklings in her new book, Bandersnatch, available wherever you get your books.

Coming up next…Diana Pavlac Glyer

I have come to appreciate, quality products, and I like to buy things from companies whose image and ethos I want to associate with. So…I’m a barefoot guy and at home I generally don’t have shoes on. However, my house sits at 9,200’ above sea level and our downstairs has a concrete floor. I now slip my feet every morning into…Overland sheepskin slippers. Mine have a decent sole on the bottom so I can also step out in the snow to wipe off car windshields and such. The are like putting my feet in a warm cloud. 

Overland is a family-owned American heritage brand that’s put comfort and quality first for nearly 50 years.

  • They offer outerwear, accessories, and home décor made from sustainable natural fibers like sheepskin, leather, and wool.  Overland uses expert craftsmanship to pair the highest-quality Merino sheepskin—which is naturally moisture-wicking, temperature-regulating, and anti-mycro-beeal—with supportive memory foam midsoles, in order to make slippers that feel better and wear better, for longer.
  • Something that really sets Overland apart is they’re one of the only brands in the world that use true double-faced sheepskin, so the suede you see outside is the same piece as the fluffy sheepskin you feel inside. It’s lighter, more breathable, and means there are no synthetic materials touching your feet. Plus, you know you’re getting top quality material because it has to look and feel great all over to meet their standards.  If you want a pair of well-made, comfier-than-you-could-imagine slippers—these are the ones to get. They make an incredible gift to give.
