    67. Your Story Is The Ultimate Competitive Advantage with Colleen Blum

    Colleen Blum is Vice President of Combs & Company and Host of the Try And Stop Me Podcast.  Colleen and I share a common bond in that we have both spent the majority of our careers in the health insurance field.  What I love about Colleen is her ability to share her struggles so openly with her community.  This willingness to be vulnerable has helped grow Combs & Company into a widely respected insurance agent in the heart of New York City.  In an industry where most are afraid to show any signs of weakness, Colleen has used her story to create an unbeatable competitive advantage in her market.  If you have found yourself afraid to "open up" about your struggles and weaknesses, THIS EPISODE IS FOR YOU.

    Colleen is a guiding light for an industry that needs more inspiring women like her.  By the time this episode is over, you'll feel like you've known her forever!

    65. Samson Jagoras: From Big 12 Football to Big-Time Entrepreneur

    This is week 3 of a 4-part series highlighting Fort Collins, CO entrepreneurs having great success and doing great things for the community.

    Samson Jagoras is a multi-talented individual.  He's Chief Strategy Officer at Madwire (marketing software), Founder of Growth Vue Properties (real estate investments), and Co-owner of Pursuit Nutrition and Training Center, a gym located outside of Fort Collins, CO.  He's also a loving husband and father.  Time management and perfecting the art of an "unbalanced" life are his specialty.  Growing up in a blue-collar home in Los Angeles, Jagoras learned what it meant to outwork the competition.  In teens he discovered he had talent on the football field and this led him to earning a scholarship to play Fullback at the University of Colorado.  In this episode, we dive into the mindset of a Fullback and how it's helped him manage, grow and lead 3 successful companies.  

    His mantra?  Stay humble, stay hungry, be smart, be greedy, be competitive.

    Purpose drives everything Jagoras does.  Listen in and get behind Jagoras' story so you can pave the way to massive success in your life!

    64. How You Can Leverage Playoff Baseball to Have a Kick-Ass Finish to 2020

    Have you given up on 2020?  Are you sitting back and preparing for a better 2021?  Well, that might not be the best strategy.  2020 is not over yet and you need to finish the year strong.  Worst case?  You need to create momentum going into next year.  This week I take a look at the Major League Baseball playoffs and how you can leverage playoff baseball to have a kick-ass finish to 2020.  The most dangerous teams in the playoffs are those that HAD to play important games in September.  It creates a TON of momentum going into the postseason.  Imagine what you can still do with the final 2 months of the year using this mentality?  

    Tune in, take notes, and get ready to strike out mediocrity from your life!  Here we go!

    63. Joe Buckner: From Prison to Purpose-Driven Entrepreneur

    This week I'm sitting down with Joe Buckner, Founder of Beautifully Savage, a boutique boxing studio in Fort Collins, CO.  This is part 2 of a 4-part series highlighting local Fort Collins entrepreneurs doing great things in business and the community.  Joe's story is about overcoming the adversity you create when you make bad choices in life.  Joe was your prototypical multi-sport athlete in Fort Collins who took his talents on the football field to the collegiate level.  However, when the sports career ended, life took an unfortunate turn for Joe.  After a series of poor decisions, he was sent to prison, a broken man with broken dreams.  After his release from prison, the adversity did not end as he found himself homeless fighting for a new purpose in life.

    Today, Joe is a new man with powerful ambition.  He's running an extremely successful boxing studio and helping his clients unleash their inner fighter to attain the life they have always dreamed of.  Joe believes "fighting solves everything".  His newest venture?  A mobile shoe store called Good Trouble.  He's an amazing father, an inspiring motivational speaker and making a huge impact on the Fort Collins community.  You'll quickly fall in love with Joe's ability to share the raw truth.  Here we go!

    62. The Mindset That Separates Professionals From Amateurs

    What separates a professional from an amateur?  Most would say talent and skill.  I disagree.  I think it's mindset.  This week I dive into the traits that define true professionals in their respective fields.  There are plenty of individuals out there today making tons of money acting like amateurs.  Might you be one of them?  In this episode I'll share the 3 traits I believe separate a true professional from a mere amateur, no matter the career.  I review some of the experiences I've had in the worlds of sports and business and observations I've made about those who just "get it".   There's even a Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith reference today!

     So tune in and take notes.  I want to you become the true professional you know you deserve to be!

Bullpen Sessions Totally Rocks! ⚾️🤘

I love the baseball theme and how the host ties everything he knows and learned in his professional baseball playing days, back to business and just plain, life in general. So very relatable. Can’t recommend listening each week more if I tried! Tune in - you won’t regret it!
