With a break from the regular programming, in this episode I share parts of my story as Josh Kalinowski, former pro baseball player and now CEO, interviews me. We talk about what it’s like for me to raise an autistic son, the growth of my mortgage note business and loan servicing business, what I do to prepare myself for life’s inevitable challenges, and my goals for 2023 - all in light of some of the most important lessons I learned from interviewing more than # people on their journey from adversity to abundance.
“I think of Jocko Willink and extreme ownership - people will ask him, well, it's my fault I got cancer or something like that, and what he says is no, it is not necessarily your fault, but it's your, problem.”
“Trying to focus on others, I truly believe, will give you the most purpose and the most value in your own life.”
