027: Wes Chapman: Are You Talking or Doing?


Until Joe dragged him out to do burpees, Wes Chapman hadn’t formally exercised in fifteen years, but don’t label him gritless. He is the founder of three successful podcasts and is a master at identifying and fomenting human potential where many have lost hope. When he calls people who want to change the world cocky, crazy, stupid yet confident, one has the sneaking suspicion he’s engaging in self deprecation. He has started A Human Project which empowers troubled youth to rise above their situation through respecting them, and it is bound be world altering.


  1. Empower troubled kids by giving them responsibility and ownership over their situation.
  2. To change the world you have to be cocky enough to think you can, crazy enough to know you can, stupid enough to actually try, and confident enough to share the responsibility.
  3. Just be good and it doesn’t matter what you believe in.
