Tuesdays at 9 AM PST on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

Being a human today is more exhausting than it’s ever been because perfection remains the standard for success. Shifting that narrative and the course of your life means knowing you’re not alone, your struggles don’t define you, and the first step to a better life doesn’t have to be scary. The Get Unstuck. Move Forward With Your Life radio show and the Nobody’s Perfect community leverage the change people need to harness the essence of human connection. Motivator and changemaker Jason Hopcus believes the connection to one’s self begins with the belief that we are all interconnected - and our stories, insights, and journeys deserve to be seen, valued, and heard. Jason focuses on relationship cultivation, authenticity, and creating a space for honest discussions that contribute to a bigger goal founded on ‘next level’ social responsibility. His laser-focused approach to each conversation serves as a pivotal reminder of what can happen when we prioritize ourselves and actively seek a more hopeful, purposeful life.
