Have you ever had an experience where you met someone, even for a brief moment, and that person completely changed your life? You might of been going in the wrong direction and they came in and put you on the right path? Or you were going in the right direction, filled with doubt or despair, and randomly you get someone to give you the encouragement to just keep on going?

Today’s guest Robert Clancy has coined these occurrences “soul hitches”.  Robert defines it as “any interaction- large or small- that changes how you view yourself, an event, or the world”.  These soul hitches can even happen just by observing simple observations of everyday life.

Robert is an entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, ordained minister, master martial arts instructor, and a published author from the heart of upstate New York.  He is the co-founder and managing partner of Spiral Design Studio, one of the largest full-service graphic design and web development firms in the Northeast. Spiral Design’s clients include dozens of corporations, educational & healthcare organizations, non-profits and startups, including Citigroup, Home Depot, Sears, Activision, Disney, among many others.

Listen in as we discuss his inspiring book, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Soul.  This book is filled with experiences in which Robert uses his passion for volunteering as the catalyst for life-changing events and immense transformation.  Robert started his journey of volunteering at the age of 6!


We also discuss: 

  • His story of how a simple stop at a rest stop made him stop “taking in life like a person running through an art gallery with their eyes closed”.
  • Why volunteering is such a catalyst to transformation.
  • Why community service and volunteering can be as simple as just smiling at someone, and
  • A preview of his upcoming book, Soul Cyphers- Decoding a Life of Hope and Happiness and his life-defining spiritual experience at the age of 19.
Because of some technical difficulties, we almost didn’t get to hear this incredible show and it turned out a little shorter than usual. Tune in to the very end as Robert shares that spiritual experience that he was holding inside for many years and has just recently came to terms with! You won’t be disappointed!
