Travis D. Johnson MHR

Travis is a retired Naval Officer, married with two children, and on move #50. His humble beginnings include 36 moves before graduating high school at 17, 12 schools, 6 states, 5 foster homes, surviving 2 murder attempts, and mother with type 1 bipolar disorder. Although this was very rough, there was always an organization willing to keep him sheltered, clothed, and fed. Now that he’s in a position to give back, he’s made it his mission to help the helpers.

Travis hosts the top-rated Nonprofit Architect Podcast, hosted the 2021 Veteran Podcast Awards, and is the only professional podcaster with an accredited course available at the university level. Travis holds a Bachelors in Science and received a 4.0 for his Masters in Human Relations. 

More About Travis

Experienced Host

When Travis started the Nonprofit Architect Podcast, he had no established audience, no company structure, no vision, and no established brand name. Starting the show while deployed to the Kingdom of Bahrain, a small island in the Persian Gulf, he took the show to #4 in the US within three months of launching. Now his show is in the top ten in seven countries in his niche and top 5% of podcasters globally.

He and his show have been featured in Podcast Magazine as a top veteran-hosted show and recognized by Feedspot as a top-ranked nonprofit show. His show has been downloaded in all 50 states and 84 countries.

In 2021, Travis hosted the Inaugural Annual Veteran Podcast Awards and Miss Crossroads Oklahoma Scholarship Competition. His personality and showmanship were rewarded with repeat invitations for both events.

Travis has also spoken at several conferences including PodKnow 2021, Donor Attraction Forum, and the Global Bipolar Disorder Conference.

The Podcast Titan was created after writing the top selling Ultimate and Complete Podcast Guide. This guide combined the expertise from a top 5 US podcast, the  methodologies from top shows, and researching multimedia outlets. In early 2022 this expertise was codified in the Ultimate Podcast Course, created in partnership with Synergy Leaning Institue. Podcast Titan is the only professional podcast with a course approved at the university level.

College credit can be earned directly at Forbes Knowledge Innovation Center and Belhaven University. Other university students can take the course online and have the credits transfered into their current institution. Those operating outside of college pursuits can take the course online. 

Podcast Titan also offers the full array of podcast services to include d0-it-yourself, done with you, done for you, guest training, building media kits, and podcast strategy.


Travis has served on the board of the S.H.I.N.E. Foundation and Books by Vets. He shared his story in the first anthology published through Books by Vets titled, Walk with Warriors, a collection of 22 veteran authors. He also edited their second offering titled, Resilience Warriors, featuring 22 female veterans and their stories. He has helped start a dozen nonprofits, donated over $40,000, and volunteered over 1,500 hours. These exploits earned him the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal. Through S.H.I.N.E., he helped raise $500,000 by hosting benefit concerts with BJ Thomas, Alan Parsons Project, Kris Kristofferson, and Jody Miller. We also helped to get several Oklahoma born female artists including Jody Miller, Katrina Elam, and Susie  McEntire.

His donations and support were the primary push to create the Safari McDoulett Memorial on Crystal Lake in Oklahoma City. During her lifetime Safari sat on the board of 40 nonprofit organizations and worked overseas with Operation Smiles before her untimely car wreck.

Sponsored the 2021 Oklahoma Veteran Golf Association Champion J.C. Carbonell, 100 for the 22 and Tunnels to Towers at TPC Yasna Polana, and Colin Garrett Racing NASCAR Team. 100 for the 22 is a 100 hole marathon round of golf, walked in a single day by the entire foursome. All proceeds for 100 for the 22 directly benefit veteran nonprofit organizations

Give Up the Struggle to Get What You Want

Give Up the Struggle to Get What You Want Travis Johnson, a naval officer based in Oklahoma, joined me to share how to give up the struggle in life to get what you want. What does he mean? When you’re efforting – the hustle and grind mentality of trying to make something happen, you’re creating self imposed struggle. Instead, surrender your plan and be guided. BTFA – Beliefs Thoughts Feelings Action Your beliefs are created from repetitive thoughts. These beliefs create your feelings and emotions and ultimately lead to the action – or inaction that you take. If you’re currently struggling at work, in business, with your finances, health, relationships or any other area of life, trace it back to your thoughts. You get to choose what you accept, and what you reject. Give up your agenda Hint, all struggle is self imposed. If you want to change the trajectory of your life – you have to realize that maybe, just maybe you don’t know everything. As Travis shares, he gave up his agenda in business and what he was trying to push in order to be led. He’s created a podcasting course and all of the resources have been brought to him – because he let go of the need to control.
