Ep 16: 11 Principles For Success And A Kick Ass Life with Tommy Baker

In this latest episode of Resist Average Academy, it's just going to be you and me for the entire session.

I wrote a blog post a few months back that received unbelievable feedback and shares titled, 11 Principles For Success And A Kick Ass Life.

I thought it was time to do a solo podcast session where I explored these 11 principles from my point of view and after having done 15 amazing Resist Average Academy sessions where many of these principles were explored.

You can find the original link to the blog post here: http://bit.ly/principlesTBF

I'd absolutely love your feedback on this show as it's the first one I have done without a guest -- it's in my plan to do these every so often, although usually shorter versions.

If you enjoyed this episode, I would absolutely appreciate you sharing it with your friends, subscribing and reviewing as well, this is so crucial to the long-term growth and exposure to the Podcast and would mean the world!

In this deep, powerful episode we are joined with entrepreneur, lifestyle coach and teacher, Brandon James Duncan.
 
Brandon works with Men around the world to re-awaken their sense of purpose and fulfillment to redefine what it means to be Man. We have a deep conversation and explore the state of Men, the stages they must go through in life and how they can show up in life, relationships, business and their spiritual selves in a way more powerful way, leading to more connection and ultimately, love.
