Lifestyle Podcast 238: Holiday Appreciation, John Hudson Dilgen, and StreetCorner Gourmets

John Hudson Dilgen’s New Home, Tunnel 2 Towers Foundation, and Mary Lanning of StreetCorner Gourmets, YES! Solutions:


This podcast episode was recorded LIVE at Scott’s personal garage aka This Old Garage project. Repeat co-host Brian Strauser of The Strauser Project has returned! He continues to go through exciting transformations in life, business, and more. Since Brian’s last appearance on episode 045, he’s been engaged in a lot of philanthropic activities.

Brian continues impacting the lives of others through various charity efforts, in particular, John Hudson Dilgen who lives with the rare condition of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). You’ll learn much more about this again today. More importantly, we share the powerful holiday energy from John’s new home dedication that we attended in Staten Island thanks to the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation. Plus the Strauser Project joins Scott’s annual LIVETHEFUEL mission with Mary Lanning and her StreetCorner Gourmets of Yes! Solutions in Harlem, NY!

Final Words:

I’ll probably keep it with the Thanksgiving theme, just end it with something simple, give more than you get. You know there’s something special that happens… (Brian gets emotional here…)

You know something special happens when you have the opportunity to do that kind of stuff. This year I probably made triple the amount of money I made last year with my side hustle and some things I’ve started doing with my carpentry, my skillset, and my level of commitment to taking care of my family. The money I made doesn’t mean shit to me.
