Become the Kind of Person Who Does Hard Things
Most athletes understand the benefits of choosing to get uncomfortable. They do hard things to get stronger. But what do you do when you worship comfort at the cost of your dreams? You become its' slave.
Men & Women Of Discomfort (MWOD) is a proven method to interrupt the excuses. Get your body back. Your discipline, too. Remind yourself what you're capable of. Become the kind of person that doesn't miss workouts, eats great, increases mobility, plays hard with their kids, and runs, unafraid, toward the storms of life.
Graduates regularly drop 20-40 lbs of fat in 90 days, gain 10-15 lbs of lean muscle mass, get off of blood-pressure medication, decrease their visceral fat, increase their bone density, eliminate their dependency on alcohol, and radically improve the quality and duration of their lives. They also show up for the people that matter most.
Stories that Invite. Ideas that Transform.
Selecting a speaker can be daunting. Will the audience connect? Will they walk away encouraged and inspired? Will what gets presented really help?
I love the challenge of creating custom talks that pierce the veneer and stay in people's thoughts and hearts well beyond the stage. I'm often present to executive teams, staffs from 50 - 500, or trade groups in the thousands.
I specialize in keynotes around individual well-being, meaning-making, navigating diverse personalities at work, and optimizing for hybrid and remote teams.
