Episode 62: Everyone Starts from Somewhere, with Ruben Gonzalez

Ruben is known as The Luge Man. Heโ€™s the first person to compete in 4 Olympics over 4 different decades. 

He talks to me how had the dream – and the perseverance – to become an Olympian, and how finding mentors is the key to unlocking success. 

Rubenโ€™s also homeschooled his kids (now 15 and 18) from Day 1, which gives us a lot to talk about with Covidโ€ฆ
