What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. -Stephen King We live in a world where everyone wants to be successful at something… The media highlights overnight success’, fairytale love stories and lucky viral sensations. This conversation is dedicated to talking about what comes before true success. We are interested in the middle part of the story, where the work is hard, the days are long, the nights are longer, and the fear is strong. Where It Takes Grit.

The ingredient of life
Life takes Grit. Chad delves deep into what I would call one of the ingredients of a fully lived life. Decoding what it takes to push through those barriers and truly build a successful business, career and life. His guests are fun and encouraging and their stories are relatable. It’s exciting to not only hear how these people get to that point, but dig deep into the details of their process. I want a million of these. And plus Chad is a great storyteller, and an amazing host.
Real people. Real life. Real talk. Chad is putting together something really great here. It’s enjoyable to be along for the ride in people’s triumphs and tragedies.
