It's a fact, most men thrive on competition. Competitive sports are as old as time. They test our skills, our abilities, our strength, and so much more.
But, more than that, sports are a metaphor for life. I can't think of another opportunity where you can learn how to win, how to lose, teamwork, discipline, commitment and every other trait that will help you thrive as a man.
This week, I talk with Travis Chock, C0-Founder of Baseballism about America's Pastime, lessons learned from the baseball diamond, and how to turn a passion for the game into a thriving business.
