Grit ‘n’ Hustle Podcast: Why It Matters & How To Win Prizes During The Launch


A little girl is ridiculed in grade school because she can’t sit still and is made fun of by her classmates, but ends up becoming a prolific entrepreneur and donates time and money to change the education system.

A little boy grows up with no legs, but ends up becoming one of the most inspiring collegiate athletes of the past 20 years.

The forty-something woman who has lived her life in the shadows of her husband and serving their children, was told to accept that she’s had a good life and to stop wanting more ends up bucking the stereotype and building an online business empire while inspiring millions.

My friend, there’s a back story to every single one of us.

Before I go any further, let me introduce myself, if you don’t’ know me:  I’m Todd Herman.  About 18 years ago I started a little coaching company called The Peak Athlete, which worked with amateur athletes on the inner game of sport.  I taught mental toughness lessons which helped athletes perform in their competitions just like they could in practice.  It wasn’t long before I started working with Pro and Olympic athletes all around the world, and becoming known as someone who could help an athlete get out of their own way, out of a slump and back to consistent performance highs.  I also started a consulting company focused on leadership and performance in the workplace, which brought me face-to-face with world leaders, CEOs of mega-companies and powerful people.

Along the way though, I had far more failures and missteps than any normal person would have in a lifetime.  But because I’ve always been curious about people’s backgrounds, I loved finding out where people came from and their back story.  Each high achiever always referenced multiple struggles and every day challenges that made life difficult, but also extremely rewarding.
