Be Different…

Be Different…

Good morning. I’m fresh off my 10th Annual Mastermind Retreat in Coronado over the weekend. Let me just say it was absolutely epic. It was full of people who were “different”…

We had over 100 people in for a deep-dive into business and personal growth. It was certainly full of WOW!!!

One of the many highlights was having the opportunity to award the 2017 TD Mastermind FIT PRO of the Year. This goes to a Mastermind member who epitomizes the work ethic, results, and philanthropic efforts synonymous with being a member in the Mastermind.

This year’s Award goes to Travis Barnes, of Journey Fitness, in Elmira, NY. Travis has an amazing story and epitomizes my “Life a life worth telling a story about” moniker.

Travis opened Journey Fitness in Elmira, NY, in 2013 and now has 5 locations. He is an author, speaker, and an accomplished trainer. And now he is our Trainer of the Year.

Listen to Travis and I talk about what it means to “BE DIFFERENT” here:

It’s not easy to “be different.” I tell my kids all the time to NOT be afraid to be different.

Whether you are in school, work, business, or any other job, don’t be afraid to “BE DIFFERENT.”

ACTION STEP: What are you going to do that is “DIFFERENT” this week that will ultimately allow you to stand out?

Much love,
