We are no strangers to hearing success stories and are often whisked away by the end result of empires being built or an impressive goal being reached. The common thread to these success stories, however, is the hard work put in. Most of these even take years and years of iterations and failings before hitting significant milestones. Jim Roddy joins me on the show today to talk more about the ingredients to success through the “Walk-on Method” and persevering with grit and commitment.
