Leading from the La-Z-Boy…A Conversation with two of my Confidants

After last week’s knee surgery, I’m going to be “leading from the La-Z-Boy” for the next few weeks. Today, 2 of my closest confidants, Julie Wilcox & Larry Indiviglia, fire-away impromptu questions to me on a multitude of topics such as:

  • What’s different this time vs surgery 2 years ago when I had my right knee done.
  • What drove me to get the left knee replaced during the pandemic.
  • How do you lead Fitness Quest 10 & Todd Durkin Enterprises when you’re down for several weeks.
  • What are the hopes for post surgery.
  • What does my family think about this surgery.
  • What I’m MOST looking forward to in 2021…
