Inside The Mind w/ James Fitzgerald

James Fitzgerald, founder/director of OPEX Fitness, is back on the show! We build upon the meat of our last episode (Ep. 40) -- which was really about understanding how he organizes his thoughts, views the integration of systems, and structures high-level thinking. This episode gets a little more personal. We talk about fear, adversity, insecurities, higher purpose, and so much more. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
