EP040: Creating Your Environment of Excellence with a Four Step Blueprint for Success

Once a wrestler always a wrestler. Jim Harshaw Jr. is a professional speaker, consultant, and a former Division 1 All-American wrestler. He helps pro athletes, CEOs and coaches to focus on the actions they need to be taking every day in order to reach their goals. He shares with them the power of the process and the power of failure. He has received accolades about his TEDx talk, Why I Teach my Children to Fail and has created a framework everyone can follow to find their own success. He and Drew share their beliefs on which mindset shifts need to occur while striving to be the best and how wrestling is an ideal physical workout.
