Just like every other Sunday, we have another group of podcasts and articles to read and listen to that I have dived into. Like every other week, there was a ton of content out there both in written form and through podcasts.
Early to Rise Radio, School of Greatness Podcast and Luka Hocevar’s Business of Fitness Podcast would have to rank up there as the three podcasts I seem to be listening the most these days. For anyone not listening to some of these I would highly recommend them. If I were to recommend one, I am really liking the Business of Fitness with Luka, so much quality info you can take action on immediately.
For those living under a rock, Keir Wenham-Flatt is doing some unbelievable things in the world of American football at the College of William and Mary. I highly recommend you follow him on social media and read the article below.
Book of the Week
I’ve been on a big Brendon Burchard kick lately and listened to this book in my commute over the last week or so. Anyone looking to develop or start a company or brand should give it a listen.
