35: Drive (pt 2)

As promised, I’m back to talk about Drive! In the last episode, we talked about why it’s important to figure out your “Why”, the thing that puts you into a state of mind where you’re willing to delay gratification, where you’re not operating on a day-to-day basis to pacify yourself. Today, I want to lock in on some actionable ways that you can go about creating progress in your life.

How do you become a technician, get under the hood, work on that engine and apply that drive in a way that’s going to create sustainable progress for your life? Let’s get into it!

31: Perspective, Fatherhood, and Legacy w/ Brandon L Washington

The Serial CEO Episode 30: Perspective, Fatherhood, and Legacy w/ Brandon L Washington

My brother B. Wash joined me on the show today to discuss how important our perspective on opportunity can shape our decisions and outcomes. Be Bold. Be Unapologetic. Be Elite!


You have to have a story to back up your voice and to back up what you’re saying. Use your voice to make a change and as a platform to make a change. Be consistent with staying focused on what your agenda is for your life, and manifesting the progress that you know you want for yourself.

Capitalize on perspectives and opportunities. Everybody has a story and no matter who you are, you have a perspective. Oftentimes, that perspective shapes your reality. Capitalizing your perspective may ultimately open or close opportunities for you. It starts with people realizing they have a story that help create what exists among their own thoughts and channels of understanding. Perspective and capitalizing on opportunity is essential for forward movement and progress.

Understand that your very next decision is your best decision. That’s because it’s going to get you where you’re going to be headed. Even if that destination isn’t the one that you ultimately want to be at, the decision that you make is the best one because now you’ve got another opportunity in front of you.

“Be bold is essential, and be unapologetic and intentional with your decisions and your movements and actions.” – Brandon L. Washington [0:04:29]

“A lot of people need to be willing to step to the plate and accept the challenges that the universe is throwing at them.” – Mike Pirtle [0:11:35]

“Those who are building a legacy are rarely talking about it because they’re too busy walking it out.” – Mike Pirtle [0:16:02]


We want to make sure that we are helping you to capitalize on the perspectives that you see on a day to day basis no matter what those decisions are. And I want to encourage you to be elite in those decisions, whatever that may be for you.
