What’s up Renegades? I hope you’re having an awesome weekend. I’m writing to you this morning from The Westin in Costa Mesa, CA where I’ve been hanging with my buddies, Craig Ballantyne, Adam Bornstein, John Romaniello and many others all weekend.
Last night we had steak at Mastro’s and I was lucky enough to get all the details on Adam and Roman’s new book, Engineering the Alpha and am blown away by how much work they put into it. I’ve witnessed several times first hand over the last few months but when I heard all the nitty gritty details I was even more impressed.
These guys went all out and this book is gonna be pure awesomess. You can preorder a copy right now on Amazon by clicking HERE.
Or, if you prefer Barnes & Noble click HERE.
Last night Craig gave live a presentation to several hundred people and as I sat and watched I couldn’t help but reflect back on our ten-year relationship. To see how far he’s come personally and professionally is truly inspiring.
I had another great talk last week with my friend, Jim Smith (Smitty) from Diesel Strength & Conditioning about a similar topic. Smitty and I have also been friends for at least ten years and to be able to witness his growth and development over that time has been incredible for me. I remember when we were both in similar places and to see how far he’s come and what he’s done motivates me every day. Last week I told my friend how proud I was of him and how trying to keep up with him helps me stay on top of my game.
Those are the kind of people you want to spend time with; those who inspire you and make you better. Make sure you’re not wasting time with people who drag you down. Life’s too short for that and you’re capable of doing too many big things.
I also had the pleasure of running into a guy named Alex, who has more posts than anyone in the 3+ year history of The Renegade Inner Circle. It was great to thank him in person for his support over the years, as I wish I could do personally with each and everyone of you guys.
Hopefully, in due time I will get that opportunity. But for now I hope you know how grateful I am.
Speaking of which, I’d like to wrap this up by letting you know that tomorrow will be the first week of business at Renegade Inc in over five years without our good friend, Andy Campbell on board as part of the team.
AC gave us five years of loyal service and was always on point. The business has grown tremendously in that time and we couldn’t have done a lot of it with AC’s help.
I’d like to congratulate him on making a lifelong dream come true recently and, on behalf of everyone at Team Renegade, wish him all the best in future endeavors.
Have a great week. And whatever you do, be the best at it.
