The late / great Jim Rohn once suggested “we should be something more than average.” You look at all the great accomplishments in life and no great success came from someone choosing to be average. It comes by those choosing to break average. It’s a choice! But, If we are too careful, we settle for average. If we are too cautious, we fail to live to our potential. Therefore, the challenge is before us – we must break average!


The best way to break average is not go it alone, it’s to go with others. That’s why we created the Breaking Average Podcast. Your companion and guide on the journey to breaking average. Something we call team strong leadership. “If you want to go fast, go alone – if you want go far, go together.” Join us each week for the Breaking Average Podcast

Papa's Princess ,

Inspired

This podcast always leaves me encouraged and inspire! I love hearing the authentic journeys of others. It casts vision for my future and gives me courage to press on.

AL-Alvizo ,

It was good until...

So “even someone from Alabama can teach you something “ (Teachability episode). Impressive statement during a time of division and hatred in our country. Good luck.
