I'm a seasoned rock climber, the rock climbing scene produces a lot of excitement on the crag but also into the experience of discovering new regions around the nation. Rock climbing taught me to use fear rather than trying to ignore it. Fear sequentially makes you think harder, one obtains more awareness and is then guided to a thought process to produce smart and safe decisions. So as an active athlete, an entrepreneur, an adventurer, I come across a lot of fear and to be in control of fear has enabled me to lead others on a team and strive for success in business.
