The Better Than You Found It Podcast

Focusing on small habits that build to changing your world – so we can all leave the world a little better than we found it.

Meet The Host

DJ Eshelman is a Life Experience Coach who specializes in Inciting Transformation in his clients. He only works with individuals that are ready to Leave the World Better Than They Found It and equip others to do the same.

DJ has over 20 years of consulting experience and earned his degrees in Psychology and Religious Studies from Hastings College in 1999.

He is a husband, musician, public speaker, writer and shampoo aficionado.


In 2013, D.J. figured out that just surviving wasn’t enough. He needed a mission statement. After much prayer and reflection, it came down to this: Leave the World Better Than He Found It.

The immediate problem with this is that people tend to over-do it! Confronted with something so big, we get discouraged and convince ourselves that it isn’t worth the effort – “what can I possibly do?” we ask ourselves. But D.J. realized it wasn’t about big things – but a series of smaller decisions we make every day that matter. It isn’t our actions or what we do that matters…

What matters is our attitudes and orientation toward the world.

This orientation takes PRACTICE and that is what this podcast is all about! Each episode will contain perspectives and encouragements designed to raise your level of preparedness for leaving the world a better place – because it isn’t about the big single decisions… it is about what we do in the moment – and WHO we are that matters most.
