In my conversation with Charlie Brenneman, aka "The Spaniard", we discuss benefits within mentors, dealing with losses, the importance of reading, and coaching athletes that may seem to 'have it all'... yet still lack confidence. Also, as we feature his new Podcast, "A Fighter's Mind", Charlie insists to change that "I should" to "I did". Welcome the IMNOTYOU squad, Charlie!
