"I love people who have big dreams, and big aspirations and have the intestinal fortitude and the commitment required to pursue their passions. Whether it's business owners that have a great idea for a great new project, or aspiring athletes that come into our facility at Athletes Nation, I'm going to be the last person on earth to tell them it can't be done. In fact, chances are I'll tell them otherwise and then go about finding a way to help them get there, wherever "there" might be!"
