A Current Life is a show about the road to success with the highs, lows, and everything encountered along the way. People often place too much value on what someone has accomplished and completely disregard the journey. A Current Life will take you behind the scenes and focus on the stories behind some of our highly successful guests throughout the show. Host Jimmy Gould has opened his little black book and wants to invite his close friends, colleagues and others to share their stories with you. Our show is much more than entertainment! A Current Life is an opportunity for people to intimately get to know each guest and his or her journey. Although every story is different, there will always be a piece of success and inspiration to take home and apply in your own life. Oftentimes the climb is more defining than the view from the top, and that is exactly what Jimmy intends to share.
