This is the Success Road podcast and my name is Joshua Rivers.

I believe that success is a journey, not the destination.

I strive to make the journey as great as possible, realizing that I can constantly be making improvements.

It also means that what success looks like can, and will, be different as you continue down the road of life.

This podcast is my way of sharing this view with you.

Throughout the episodes of this podcast, we’ll explore many different areas of life and how we can make changes to improve our life. We’ll cover topics like productivity, family, finances, career, and more.

As Aaron Walker says, I’m trying to help you not just be successful, but to be significant.

The Success Road podcast has seen many changes over the years. It first started as Quality Living Made Simple in February 2013. My goal when I started was to examine what it means to have a quality life and to share simple things to help achieve such a life, with podcast episodes and blog posts mostly devoted to personal growth and achieving a quality life.

Throughout the first two years, I went through a couple changes in my artwork:

Going into Jan 2015, I changed directions slightly to the Success Road. That’s when I started to have a little better focus on what I was doing with the podcast. I continued to post episodes until November 2016, when I decided I needed to take an official break from the podcast.

I had been trying to grow a side business throughout this whole time, and keeping up with all my responsibilities become increasingly difficult. The direction and focus of my side business even took a turn from web development to podcast editing.

Throughout 2017 and 2018, I put more focus into my side business. Several times I bumped into the wall of “not having enough time but also not having enough income to leave my full-time job.”

In 2018, I had the idea of sharing some the things I was learning about growing and starting a side business on a new podcast, Side Biz Start. I published 10 episodes on that podcast when I got the idea to merge what I was doing with Side Biz Start with Success Road since many of the concepts overlapped. This was the birth of season 3 for Success Road.

Starting in February 2019, I began republishing the episodes from Side Biz Start on the Success Road with Season 3 focusing on growing a side business, but still keeping to the original purpose of the podcast: to give inspiration for the journey of success and significance.
