    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.

    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

    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!

    61. Building the American Dream One Pocket Watch At a Time with RT Custer

    61. Building the American Dream One Pocket Watch At a Time with RT Custer

    This week I'm kicking off a 4-part series highlighting local Fort Collins entrepreneurs making a big impact in the community.  This week I sit down with RT Custer, Co-Founder and CEO of Vortic Watch Company.  Vortic Watch Company is preserving American history one pocket watch at a time.  They are the "craft brewer" of the watch industry.  In this episode, RT talks about his childhood growing up in an entrepreneurial family.  In fact, it was his father you told him "you can do anything you put your mind to".  This mindset has helped RT in SO many ways, from the ups and and down of running a small business (which we dive into) to taking on the largest watch company in the world.  We also discuss an amazing initiative Vortic Watch Company runs every Fall called the Military Edition, where they take pocket watches originally manufactured for the United States Air Army Corps, turn them into limited edition wrist watches, and make them available to the public on Veterans Day.  RT and his Co-Founder, Tyler, are making a big impact on Fort Collins entrepreneurs and I'm excited to share their journey with you.

    60. Here's How to Get Even With Your Doubters

    60. Here's How to Get Even With Your Doubters

    This week I'm talking about a topic that is a HUGE sore subject for so many...dealing with the judgement of others.  In this episode, I share a personal story of judgement that had a big impact on me when I was in high school.  My athletic abilities were called out in a local newspaper and, when you're 16 years old, it can crush you.  However, I used the words in the article as fuel; fuel that propelled me to excel on the baseball field in high school and college earning me the chance to play professional baseball.

    If you fear the criticism and judgement of your peers, this episode is just what you need.  You're not alone and there ONE WAY to get back at your doubters.  Tune in and find out!

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!
