Ep.72 | Wednesday Recap | Mike Fumagalli

Like anything in life, your resilience has everything to do with the actions you take.

I haven’t met anyone who’s told me, “J.R., I want to fold when it gets tough.”

But I’ve met a ton of people who tell me they want to be more resilient, but don’t know where to start. 

In today’s episode of Coming Up Clutch™️, I summarize the Top 3 nuggets from Monday’s interview with educator, father, and President and co-founder of the Clear Ribbon Foundation, Mike Fumagalli.

Mike lost his wife and the mother of his two boys less than 30 days after her cancer diagnosis – he knows a thing or two about resilience and overcoming adversity.

We got real about his inspiring journey, as well as how to resolve deep levels of grief and trauma.

If you want to learn how to overcome the toughest of times, then lock in to the cliffs notes version of my interview with Mike.
