In today’s episode, I talk with Michael Parnell, a man with one heck of a story of turning around his life. I met Mike through my wife while at an event, and wanted to have him on the show because of the immense challenges he had to overcome in order to get to where he is today. Mike shares his story and is real, unfiltered, and totally honest – which I find incredibly courageous.

Hi, I’m Rob!

Hi, I’m Rob! It has been said “You are not what you have learned, but what you’ve overcome.”

I have overcome my share of obstacles in order to architect the life of my dreams and uncover the key to lasting, meaningful success. Growing up in Queens (literally on the wrong side of the tracks), my early years were tumultuous, marked by hardship and violence.
