A Year of Opening Up | Episode 3 | The Carlos Frevert Podcast
A year ago today, I published a post called “Be a Beacon In The Storm” that started my path of opening up, sharing my journey, and trying to help people along the way.
It was absolutely terrifying.
I had no idea where it would lead. I had no idea if I would keep it up. I had no idea if people would listen or even care. All I knew was that I needed to do it. I needed to try. Something inside was screaming for me to let it out.
And now, here we are – a year later, 40 lbs lighter, two podcasts being produced, heading into Phase 2 of 75 Hard, and in complete ownership of my life.
And I’m just getting started.
I share some thoughts about the post, and what it meant, in the latest episode of The Carlos Frevert podcast.

If you’d like to hear more about my story, I talk about it more in-depth on my other podcast, Storm Champ.

Kobe’s Life and Legacy | Episode 1 | The Carlos Frevert Podcast
The news of Kobe Bryant’s death has hit me a little harder than I expected.
You see, I grew up a fan of the Chicago Bulls, during the era of Jordan. So by the time Kobe started to make an impact on the NBA, I wasn’t really watching basketball anymore nor following any specific player’s career.
But a couple of months ago, I read a book called Relentless by Tim Grover. In that book, he talks about coaching Kobe. I found that I started to have a different kind of appreciation for Kobe’s passion and dedication, especially the way he was able to get things done.
When I saw the Instagram post from Gary Vee about Kobe’s death, it hit me really weird. And as I saw all the different posts and news stories come in about the crash, his daughter and the all others who also lost their lives in the accident, I found myself a bit at a loss.
I have a lot of friends in California so I started seeing all their social media feeds fill up with things about Kobe. And a really close friend of my mine went to the Staples Center and sent pictures and videos of the memorial and gathering that was happening around the arena.
So I wake up this morning and I head to the gym. And I’m not feeling it today. I’m on day 27 of 75 Hard Phase 1 and I’m tired. Its was a rough week at work last week and I’m barely catching up on sleep. So I’m debating with myself if I’m going to lift weights or just take it easy a bit and ride the elliptical.
Most of the TVs in the gym are showing ESPN and all the tributes to Kobe. They are showing the NBA games with the moments of silence and players holding back tears. They show teams taking shot clock violations in honor of Kobe. They show footage from the Pro Bowl where a handful of players celebrate a sack by mimicking Kobe’s fade away shot. They show a soccer player hitting a penalty goal and holding up the number 24 with his fingers towards the camera.
All that footage really started to get to me. So as I’m stretching out and still debating which workout I’m going to do, I hear this voice in my head say, “Look at you. You don’t want to get after it today. I bet you Kobe would.” And that’s all it took. I knew what needed to be done. Whatever it takes.
Throughout my workout, I’m holding back tears and I’m thinking about the legacy and impact that he’s left on this world. I’m thinking about the fact that the guy was only a year younger than me. And look what’s he’s been able to do with his life in the short time he had in this world.
Kobe’s life is another realization that greatness doesn’t happen with the gam...
