Episode #11 – Grooming Yourself for Success with Tony Stubblebine

If you’re smart, you’re always looking to learn from the people around you. When it comes time to level up, a lot of people look for a mentor. But finding one is REALLY hard. There’s no blueprint to finding one, and the path certainly isn’t linear.

What if, instead of a mentor, you invested in a coach?

The most successful people across all domains–sports, business, health–have coaches. Even Tony Robbins has a coach!!

I can speak from experience–there comes a time when your responsibilities outweigh your capacities. A coach can be a mentor and partner that an entrepreneur can confide in.

Today, I bring to you the ULTIMATE coach…

Let’s dig in!!
