The STRONG Reunion with Devon & Brittany

A few years back, I had the opportunity to be on a prime time reality show called STRONG on NBC (now airing on NETFLIX). I took a huge leap of faith and a ton of risk to leave my business & family for up to 3 months. It was one heck of a ride and I’m glad I did it.

For today’ show, I reunite with the two women I was teamed up with on STRONG, Devon Cassidy and Brittany Harrell. We talk about our top lessons, favorite memories, worst memories, where the girls are today, and how they are doing. Additionally, I share the 5 major things that had to line-up for me originally to be on STRONG and discuss how/why they happened.

Enjoy today’s reunion show as we go deep and even share some of the behind the scenes stuff that never made it on the show and that I have never discussed publicly before.

Lastly, if you have not seen STRONG yet, be sure to check it out on NETFLIX. You will love to see the “drama” unfold and how it all works out as we compete for up to $500,000. Warning!!! Don’t stop watching after I get eliminated in Week 3. As always, these reality shows have a lot of twists & turns, and this one is no different. Stay tuned!
