Be Uncommon: A Story of Rising Above

There’s a lot of noise online, a lot of noise in life.

I always talk about the need to be distinct, and unique, to cut through the noise and be seen.

Here’s a powerful story with tremendous life and business lessons about a young man who is distinct and is making great choices in the face of adversity.

Be Uncommon

Austin Hatch survived not just one, but two plane crashes that took the lives of those nearest to him.  Not only that, in the second crash he suffered a traumatic brain injury.

He could have become bitter, he could have folded under the pain, loss, and struggles…but he didn’t.

He embodied what his father instilled within him from a young age:  Be Uncommon.

Why the Halftime theme Mike?

I’m a Indiana Hoosier native where basketball is the top sport. Every team heads to the locker room at halftime to evaluate the first half and create a updated plan for the second half. That plan includes adjustments based on reviewing what worked and what didn’t. The “halftime” is a key review point where the game stops, the team pulls away to huddle in the locker room away from the fans, and they come out prepared and ready to succeed in the second half.

That’s what this podcast is all about, taking the time to pull away for bit to evaluate, learn, and set some strategies for your business to succeed in the second half. Join me by subscribing and let me be your “business halftime” to help you find great success going forward!
