Today I bring you Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton. Andrea and Richard- my first dual interview on Success Through Failure --  are the premier experts on overcoming failure, rejection, and fear of the word, ‘no.’ They believe that courage is the single most important virtue on which everything else in life is built. And that when people build their courage, anything is possible. They co-wrote the best-selling book titled “Go For No: Yes Is The Destination, No Is How You Get There.” Through the dialogue of the two main characters they have created an entertaining story that presents the key concepts essential to success in sales and anything else in life. They are living their dream of speaking and writing, traveling the country and delivering their message to tens of thousands of people and changing lives with their Go for No! message.

We believe in the message that Jim and his guests bring every episode for the Athlete On Fire Network!

Today I bring you Nate Quarry. Nate grew up in a sheltered lifestyle and did not participate in organized sports until age 24, when he first became exposed to MMA. After a period of self-discovery, he rejected his Jehovah's Witness upbringing, which he later characterized as a cult who control their members 24 hours a day. This led to expulsion from the Jehovah’s Witness faith and caused him to become alienated from his family and former friends. He began to associate with others outside of the church and along the way began to train in mixed martial arts fighting. He landed a spot on the Ultimate Fighter tv show and eventually made his way to Team Quest in Oregon. He fought 22 professional fights, winning 18. He’s now an entrepreneur with his hands in multiple businesses.

On this episode,  Anthony Trucks. His clients refer to him as “Truckstop”. It was a nickname he earned while playing college and NFL football because he attacked people and hit them so hard they were stopped in their tracks…but he just kept moving. The name stuck because that’s now the way he attacks life. He attacks head on and just won’t stop. It’s ironic because he spent the first 14 years of his life being told he was worthless and would never amount to anything while experiencing hell in foster care.

Anthony was the first and only one in his family to earn a college degree. He married his high school sweetheart, played in the NFL, built and run his own successful business, and has trained thousands of people ranging from professional athletes to stay at home moms to get healthy and strong. He’s now an author, a consultant for billion dollar a year companies, father of 3, and he speaks across the globe to help people change their lives.
