And when I first heard about it and got signed up, I thought it was kind of a corporate training camp, you know real sterile stuff, like trust falls and drawing diagrams, figuring out who drew what sort of thing. So I signed up because I actually liked that sort of thing and I went to Austin.
From the moment I landed, it started five of the most pivotal days of my life. And for me, the camp came in a time of transition, well a time of searching really. I was coming off of a huge failure of trying to start my own business that had looked so promising. I built this million-dollar insurance brokerage and it all came crashing down for a whole lot of reasons. And, as men, we identify so much with our career and that station in life, so I was kind of picking up the pieces… I knew that I was going to be okay. I did not know what my first step was going to be.
You ask yourself that question, “do I have what it takes,” and you go looking for an answer. I actually did not expect to find that answer at ThyPower. What I was expecting was a break from all the stress, to just do some real basic level leadership stuff and just kind of relax.
But instead it (ThyPower) set the tone and created this environment where I could find that answer.
