I met Dan Hayes at the Michael Hyatt Platform Conference in Nashville. We had both built home office suites, so we had a common knack for creative home decor. (See My Sweet Home Office Suite and Dan’s World Shedquarters.)
Dan and his wife, Vanessa, have been producing a weekly podcast called Simple Life Together. I’ve enjoyed listening to them every week, and several car trips with the kids have been spent listening to their fun and practical ideas on simple living.
At the end of every show, the Hayeses read posts from iTunes comments. I was in my office working through a stack of paper (I’m still working on this), listening to Simple Life Together. It’s hard to believe I have been chipping away at paperless ambitions for 1.5 years, but with Dan and Vanessa’s encouragement, I’m pounding through.
So there I was, listening to SLT while stacking up some old lesson plans from the 1990’s to digitize. And Dan and Vanessa reads a comment from some guy that is listening to the show with his kids. And I think to myself, “Hey, that sounds like me and my family.” And then Dan says, “Thats the Jeubs! Family of 18!” And I think to myself, “Hey, that’s me!”
Listen to this broadcast. You’ll enjoy it. And the Hayes end the program mentioning the Jeubs. We will meet again someday, Hayes family!
