MOTM #008: Nicholas Flannery: Be Where Your Feet Are

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Brought Nicholas Flannery on the show and he absolutely CRUSHED it. This guy IS passion. This guy IS motivation. This guy IS living his best life.

Don’t let that CrossFit picture fool you. There is FAR more to this young man, and that’s exactly why I asked him to come on as a guest. Goal-setting, career changes, devastating injuries, pain science, support systems, going back to school, deciding to drop out of school…this episode has it all. And for those of you who are into CrossFit, Nicholas just happens to be a two-time Regional athlete AND the head coach at rockstar box, Fiternity…so yeah…he’s the real deal.

Download it. Listen to it. Rate it. Subscribe. I hope you have as much fun listening to this episode as I had making it.
