Key Takeaways

1. Consistency is key to building an online brand or platform.

2. Building relationships and having mentors are crucial for success in the private sector.

3. Training velocity and command can be developed simultaneously.

4. Good mechanics do not guarantee better command, but consistency within a pitcher's delivery can lead to more strikes.

5. Technology provides valuable data for evaluating and improving pitching mechanics.


  • "Consistency every single day...trial and error...figure out what people actually care about." 

  • "Be consistent. Obviously, you got to be learning and growing. If you're not posting good stuff, no one's going to follow you." 

  • "Having the right people in your corner and having mentors...consistency and mentors are two of the biggest things.''

  • "People just tell you what you want to hear...that doesn't actually help the person." 

  • "Training velocity and stuff versus training can train both of those things at the same time."
