I’m beyond blessed to have Todd Durkin on the show today. A true leader fueled by “Inspiring greatness everyday”, Todd is a man of many accomplishments. He’s trained the best of the best, created one of America’s top ten gyms, wrote a best-selling book, and motivates many with his exceptional mindset. Tune in, as we discuss topics such as: the power of environment, making your own choices, counting the short-term wins, maximizing your daily planning, achieving success through risk-taking, and the top characteristics of today’s best athletes. If you don’t have a pen and pad infront of you, well… I’ll wait till you grab a pair.
