It's an amazing conversation and Richmond has a such a great perspective on his sport and life, in general.  I'm excited to share Richmond Champion with you!

This week I am joined by Brett Lorin.  Brett is a former professional baseball player turned successful entrepreneur, and host of the Too Tall Sports podcast.  I wanted to have Brett on because his story is very similar to mine.  However, when it comes to stature, we're VERY different.

Today, Brett has successfully transitioned into Chapter 2 of his life, something that is extremely difficult for many pro athletes.  Brett is living out the entrepreneurial life in solar sales as well as a past stint growing a Jimmy Johns franchise. In this episode Brett and I talk about his journey through high school and college sports and the feeling of coming up just one call short of Major League Baseball.  THIS EPISODE IS FOR ANY ATHLETE OR BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL transitioning to the next phase in life and looking for clues to do it successfully.

Can you imagine spending your career hunting down NFL Quarterbacks AND changing all four tires of a race car in less than 12 seconds?  Marshall McFadden can!  In this week's episode Marshall and I sit down and talk about both careers.  Marshall's football story is about coming from humble beginnings and showing up during the brightest moments.  Overlooked by most major college football programs, Marshall took his talents to South Carolina State, a program far off the radar of most NFL scouts.  However, he used this to drive him to constantly show up when the lights were brightest, ultimately landing him a job on Sundays playing in the NFL spending time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders, and St. Louis Rams. Today, Marshall has traded his football cleats in for a NASCAR uniform as a member of the Chip Ganassi racing team pit crew.  We talk about he applies what he's learned on the football field to the high-pressure moments on the race track.  It's extremely hard for pro athletes to transition to the next phase in life, but McFadden has done a beautiful job with it.  Tune in and enjoy a great conversation!

This week I'm sitting down with Joe Buckner, Founder of Beautifully Savage, a boutique boxing studio in Fort Collins, CO.  This is part 2 of a 4-part series highlighting local Fort Collins entrepreneurs doing great things in business and the community.  Joe's story is about overcoming the adversity you create when you make bad choices in life.  Joe was your prototypical multi-sport athlete in Fort Collins who took his talents on the football field to the collegiate level.  However, when the sports career ended, life took an unfortunate turn for Joe.  After a series of poor decisions, he was sent to prison, a broken man with broken dreams.  After his release from prison, the adversity did not end as he found himself homeless fighting for a new purpose in life. Today, Joe is a new man with powerful ambition.  He's running an extremely successful boxing studio and helping his clients unleash their inner fighter to attain the life they have always dreamed of.  Joe believes "fighting solves everything".  His newest venture?  A mobile shoe store called Good Trouble.  He's an amazing father, an inspiring motivational speaker and making a huge impact on the Fort Collins community.  You'll quickly fall in love with Joe's ability to share the raw truth.  Here we go!

62. The Mindset That Separates Professionals From Amateurs
What separates a professional from an amateur?  Most would say talent and skill.  I disagree.  I think it's mindset.  This week I dive into the traits that define true professionals in their respective fields.  There are plenty of individuals out there today making tons of money acting like amateurs.  Might you be one of them?  In this episode I'll share the 3 traits I believe separate a true professional from a mere amateur, no matter the career.  I review some of the experiences I've had in the worlds of sports and business and observations I've made about those who just "get it".   There's even a Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith reference today!  So tune in and take notes.  I want to you become the true professional you know you deserve to be!

Episode 58 - Sharing YOUR Story is the Ultimate Competitive Advantage
This week I'm sharing a Keynote talk I gave in 2019 at the National Association of Health Underwriters annual convention.  The sound quality is not the best.  Using your story to differentiate from your competition gives you the ultimate advantage.  It's your story, no one else has it.  If used properly, leveraging the power of your story gives your audience a chance to know and like you even before they've met you.  It makes prospecting a hell of a lot easier. Most of all, it allows you to create huge impact on others' lives and your wallet!

The words "six feet" will never be viewed the same again.  How you view this period in history will define who you become moving forward.  Are you going to look back and tell people about how the pandemic killed all of your momentum?  Or will look back at this moment in time as the start of the rest of your life? Perspective is everything.   Is this a time of fear?  Or is this a time of great opportunity? Believe it or not, six feet actually had an impact on my professional baseball career.  I thought you had to be AT LEAST six feet tall to have a chance to pitch at the professional level.  However, when you look back at some of the best pitchers of the last 20-30 years, there are plenty who stood shorter than six feet.  Again, it's all perspective.  What I saw as a hurdle, they saw as an opportunity. In this episode, I'll share 3 steps you can take RIGHT NOW to start living the life you know you're capable of.  The one thing you have the most control over is your mindset.  Use this episode to help you start taking the appropriate action.  Alright, here we go!    Resources: Connect with me on LinkedIn: Andy Neary     Connect with me on Instagram: @andy_neary     Website: andyneary.com     Virtual Mastermind: Complete Game

Episode 38 - Success is 80% Mindset, 20% Skill
Today I'm discussing the MOST IMPORTANT "80/20" rule for your career. Here it is ... Success is 80% MINDSET, and 20% SKILL. Ask any professional athlete and they'll tell you it's the truth. Why is this important? Because in times of struggle, your natural instinct is to go seek more knowledge. You sign up for more conferences. You sign up for more webinars. You go seek people you think have the knowledge. Yet, that's not your problem. In times of struggle, go to work on your MINDSET. Fix that and magical stuff happens!

Episode 37 - From Burn Out to Balance and Fulfillment with Kyle Depiesse
Today I am excited to have Kyle Depiesse join me on the Bullpen Sessions podcast! If you find yourself climbing the ladder of "success" yet still feel unfulfilled, this episode is FOR YOU! Kyle spent much of his career climbing the corporate ladder.  For him, success meant more money, more cars, a bigger house, and ... more debt. The higher he rose the less fulfilled he felt, until he finally hit "rock bottom" Thanksgiving day 2014. Finding himself spending a holiday focused on work instead of family led him to FINALLY wake up and say, "What the hell am I doing?!?". Since that day Kyle has been on a magical of journey of reflection and reinvention, getting out from massive amounts of debt, and launching the Reaching Beyond Experience. We dive into his systematic approach to eliminating debt from his life and what he's doing today to help other burnt-out executives step into a life of purpose and fulfillment. Kyle is a such a good human being.  I cannot wait for you to listen in!

What Got You Here Won't Get You There - 3 Keys to Taking Your Career to the Next Level [Episode 34]
Hey hey!  Friday Bullpen Sessions Episode 34 is here! This week we're talking about taking your career to the next level. This episode was inspired by the following conversation I once had with a colleague... "The Alabama Crimson Tide could beat the Cleveland Browns." Whaaaat? Are you kidding me?? The Browns would wipe Alabama off the field. Why? Because the gap in skillset between college football and the NFL is HUGE! What made you great in college requires something completely different to get to the next level.  The same is true in professional baseball. And ... this could be happening to your career! Maybe you're already having a ton of success. Maybe you're already making a ton of money. But .... To get to the NEXT LEVEL is going to require a different skillset. What got you to your first milestone won’t necessarily get you to the next. It may require you to DO SOMETHING different. In this episode I share what I think is the SECRET to getting to the next level in your career. New level. New game. New strategy. Are you ready to take your career to the next level?  Listen in! Then, go check out the COMPLETE GAME MASTERMIND.   Your career will never be the same!! Check it out HERE: https://bit.ly/completegame

Becoming a Specialist [Episode 22]
Happy Friday! It’s time for the bullpen session, episode 2️⃣2️⃣! Big shoutout to our sponsor 🏼APN consulting! Check it out! Today we are talking about being a specialist. And why 🏻YOU, 🏻your brand, and 🏻business need to become one. What do I even mean?🤷🏼‍♂️ Well, it’s time for a good ol ️baseball analogy. If you were to go back 1️⃣5️⃣- 2️⃣0️⃣years ago on baseball - the type of pitcher that was emphasized back then was the starting pitcher. 🏼 The statistics dwarf what a starting pitcher does today. You see if you were a starting pitcher and you’re pitching 7-9 innings you met a variety of different batters. You couldn’t go narrow. ❌ You had to go wide. ⭕️ Then something, in my opinion, happened in 2014 that changed it all. Listen to the bullpen to find out what and how. ⬇️ Quit trying to be the jack of all trades and just go narrow. ✅
