FTC Simon | Finding Your Balance

Finding Your Balance With Simon Severino

Starting out as a promising soccer player vying for the pros, Simon Severino froze on the one time he had to excel in the field. The universe was sending him a message: “Soccer is not for you; follow your own path.” So he pivoted and started building and helping Fortune 500 companies. This time, he lost touch with his best friends and was eventually kicked out of his soccer club. Another message from the universe: get into balance. Ever carefully, he built a model to help others and founded Strategy Sprints. Now heading in the right direction, Simon sits down with Mitch Russo to share the lessons he learned and how he is now finding the balance in making great progress career-wise and in his personal life.
