Sean brings on a wide variety of guests from athletes to entrepreneurs to creatives, but there is a common thread: take control of your mindset and design it in alignment with your goals and no one else’s!

Great Content from a Guy Who’s Accomplished a lot Himself

Most listeners don’t know Sean was an All-American lacrosse player and captain of the team at UNC Chapel Hill. He’s accomplished in many ways and knows the right questions to ask because he’s written an impressive story for himself. Credible content from a founder who has actually been there before. Rare in media these days.

Have a listen.
