“Nils knew all about me and knew what would motivate me. He knew his craft, but he knew me and that’s a recipe for success.” — Brian Buffini

Like many successful people, Brian takes time away from his business to rest, recover and recharge. In this episode, he shares a story of taking a trip to the Comox Valley in British Columbia with his then-15-year old son to rest, think, bond and hike. At the urging of his son, they hired a guide named Nils to lead them up one of the tallest mountains in the Canadian Rockies. With Nils’ coaching and advice, Brian learned a valuable lesson that reconnected him with why he enjoys coaching in the first place. You’ll learn why mountain climbing is a lot like life, the importance of having experts on your side and what motivates Brian to coach people to succeed.
