Bruce lives where fighting and business converge. With a background as an executive level headhunter and a youth spent in the boxing gym, he’s translated those tactics into building champions. The renowned boxing coach sits in the podcast ring this week with Joe De Sena and discusses the keys to coaching to glory, rebuilding them after loses, and the importance of vulnerability. What it comes down to is the Law of Outcomes: “ the amount of pain, suffering and sacrifice you make must be equal to the goal you wish to achieve.” Bruce is the guy you want in your corner!

LESSONS Work hard, pay attention & listen Be an active observer Keep notes! Follow your passions The key to coaching is connection Humility and empathy are worthy traits “Deserves” got nothing to do with it Be vulnerable in life “Law of outcomes: the amount of pain, suffering and sacrifice you make must be equal to the goal you wish to achieve” Have a vision for yourself- success is an exclusionary process There is no easy path- be willing to suffer for your dream
