Humble, Hungry, and Hustlin’ with Jimmy Mackey

Today’s episode is one of the most unique, touching, and motivational interviews with one amazing man. Jimmy Mackey is a coach, trainer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist based in the Bahamas and he’s overcome a ton of adversity in his life. Jimmy just expanded his MacFit360 brand and opened up his new state-of-the-art, world-class, 17,000 square foot training facility smack in the middle of the Nassau, Bahamas.

On today’s show, Jimmy discusses:

  • How growing up poor and even homeless at times created an unparalleled grit and work ethic in him.
  • How losing his father and brother at young ages deepened his faith, eventually helping him get through the tough times.
  • How to be led by your vision and ultimately manifest what you desire.
  • How he combines his love for training, photography, sport, and entrepreneurism on his social media to expand his brand. He also offers a few social media tips for someone starting out or looking to level-up their brand.
  • Why he started his Jimmy Mackey IMPACT Foundation and what it’s all about.

Folks, I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and I know you will feel Jimmy’s spirit permeate throughout the episode. His energy, resilience, grit, personality, and vision are reasons why I set the intention to have a retreat in the Bahamas in 2022. Who’s in?
