This Season

We’re focusing on one theme: PEAK PERFORMANCE.

What does it take to achieve greatness? How do you maintain it? And how do you continually find opportunities to improve, in EVERY area of life?

This Episode

Today’s episode features Marshall Rauch. He was the first Jewish Senator in North Carolina, serving 24 years and playing a key role during the Civil Rights era. He played basketball at Duke (in 1941), he fought in WWII, and he’s a serial entrepreneur who’s worked with everyone from Elvis to Jim Bakker. 

He’s almost 100, but he’s more focused now than ever on getting better every day. In fact, just after his 90th birthday – he launched a brand new business with his son.

What’s the secret to living a longer, happier life? How can we all create our own luck, and extend our “peak performance?”

According to Marshall, the answer is simple. “Don’t take yourself too seriously.”
