Tyler and Mike welcome Troy Blanchard into the RMIT virtual studio for an amazing conversation where Troy lets the guys in on a powerful ride through his “rich man” life.  Troy shares practical and powerful strategies and experiences that have resulted in stretch and growth in his life and could do the same for those that are listening.  For Troy, it’s all about the pivot and the growth that comes from feeling and following the pull of challenges and disrupting events.  Life is just like those Choose Your Own Adventures we all read and loved when we were kids and for the Blanchards the adventure has always been about “being globally minded and spiritually grounded”.  That phrase turns out to be more than just a fancy motto on the wall in the living room.  It was a promise to keep and Troy’s “true north” that he has used to guide his family through their faith journey.  Enjoy the truth that Troy drops on the guys and soak in the lessons that will help all of us learn how we can be better in every aspect of our lives.
