“It’s the START that stops you” says the electric Eric Byrnes who launched his Major League  Baseball career with a 22 game hitting streak. Byrnes was a player who relied on his speed and hustle, and he brings the energy of a fast ball to this interview. Drafted out of high school by the Dodgers, he went on to play for the Oakland Athletics, the Colorado Rockies, the Baltimore Orioles, the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Seattle Mariners.  He was living the dream. After “retiring” Eric discovered new outlets for his drive - triathlons & ultras, and for his voice - as a broadcaster on ESPN, in his book “the F*ck It List” and his podcast. If that’s not enough - On April 22/23, 2019, Byrnes set a new Guinness Book of World Records mark for most holes of golf in a single day, 420 holes. It’s a  power packed convo about not taking your feelings too personally, living in the now, and seriously maximizing your days! Get after it Spartans! LESSONS 1. To succeed immerse yourself 
 2. You get out what you put into life
 3. Create luck with your attitude & effort 
 4. MAXIMIZE your days 
 5. It’s the start that stops us!
 6. It’s not about what’s next, it’s about what’s NOW.
