The Endurance Specific Podcast

Today, Oh this is a special one today. One for the Fat Black history books. Lionel Sanders is more than the real deal. We cover a lot in this conversation and if you aren’t fired up and ready to get after it and see what your potential is... no matter the cards you have been dealt with, after listening to this. I’m not sure what will…

This conversation shows why Lionel is so good and why he can and will be better and it gives us some solid clues, actually a bit of a roadmap to how we can be better too.

Enjoy because I thoroughly did.
