093: Andy Frisella | A Legacy of Success

We talk a lot about success on this show. In fact, the word gets tossed around so much that it’s lost a lot of it’s significance.

My friend, and guest today, Andy Frisella, joins me to talk about what success is and isn’t, the struggles motivated and ambitous men face, his new children’s book, and our obligation to teach principles of success to our children as our legacy.

The Iron Council


Men, let’s talk about new year’s resolutions here for a minute.

Look, I get it. It’s nice to think about how next year is going to be better than this year. It’s nice to dream big and think about what your future might hold.

But, unless you have a plan for making it actually happen, dreaming is where it will end for you.

I want to invite you to join The Iron Council. This is our mastermind designed to help you take your life to the next level. And, this is the perfect time to join as we focusing heavily on doing more than dreaming and thinking of 2017 goals – we’re actually doing something about it.

We’re going to help you identify the objectives you want to reach, the tactics that will help you get there, and give you the tools and accountability to make it a reality.

Don’t let another year of big dreams pass you by. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

Join us at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

    Good listen. As a father and an entrepreneur as well a lot of the stuff he said sounded like things I’ve thought or said before.
