Episode 24 - Turtle Hat

Turtle Hat

It's time for you to come out of your shell. Huh? Yeah, it's time for you to come out of your shell. In this episode, I talked with Lynn Johnson from The Turtle Hat. For over 20 years Lynn wore his beloved Turtle Hat everywhere he went to "break the ice" and to make a solid a Dad statement. The story of how Lynn Johnson plans to change the world starts with him getting into a nasty ski accident in Purgatory, which is a town in Colorado. But his torn ACL doesn't matter—the important thing is that while he was injured, he bought a hat in the shape of a turtle, and this altered his life forever. Everyone gave him comments on the hat. Strangers would wave hello or laugh when they saw him. He'd make jokes about his hats and came up with little sayings like, "You cannot be rude when wearing a turtle, not only would it be impolite, you will also look stupid," and, "Come out of your shell, wear a turtle!"
