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

Jesse Itzler is EXTREME. He started his career as a rapper, then founded the world’s largest private jet card business, then sold a different company to Coca Cola.

Today, he’s the owner of the Atlanta Hawks and an ultra-endurance athlete – constantly pushing his body and his mind past the point of what is supposed to be humanly possible.

Jesse’s take on “peak performance” is all about overcoming self-doubt, pushing past physical limits & mental fatigue, and finding ways we all can accomplish amazing things we never knew we were capable of.

And in the spirit of “endurance” – this episode features an extra 10 minutes of Ric & Jesse’s conversation. Enjoy!
