EP45 - Dropping the Act and Getting Real

January 15 | 118 min.

For episode 45, we chatted with the great Jim Gardiner! Jim was a “weak asthmatic kid,” who couldn’t run half a mile and often ended up in the hospital for weeks at a time. One day, he decided he wasn’t going to let asthma control his life anymore. From there, he became a champion rower, legendary bartender, successful business owner, off-Broadway performer, and inspiring life coach. Along the way, he worked out with The Rock, got a great tip from Colin Farrell, witnessed Robin Williams’ sadness, survived 911 and learned that despite his incredible accomplishments, fulfillment only comes from contribution -which he’s currently doing as a powerful coach with Leapzone Strategies. This is a GREAT conversation and checks all the boxes of what we’re trying to do with this Podcast. This! Is Obstacle Course. Let’s Go.
