This episode is part of the Comeback Series, which features Entrepreneurs who have experienced a major setback and then successfully pivoted to something different, bigger, and more impactful.
Today’s guest is Adam Eidson, an entrepreneur who left his high-paying corporate and took a 50% pay cut to pursue a more purpose-driven life. He is driven by empowering others and making them feel better about themselves so he opened his own gym, RARE Crossfit, and started hosting The Mentee podcast.
Growing up, Adam didn’t have the confidence or self-esteem he has today. There was no consistent father figure for much of his early childhood, being a smaller guy made school a challenge (he graduated high school at 118 pounds), and he was shrouded in limiting beliefs.
Ultimately, it was support from his first mentor and father figure that helped Adam realize his own abilities and grow into a more confident human being.
Later, mentorship from former guest Geoff Woods guided Adam on a transformative journey. He developed clarity about the incredible power of people, relationships, and action. To foster those relationships – and add more value to the people in his life – Adam started practicing greater transparency and vulnerability in every aspect of his life.
Like crossfit, being open and vulnerable requires a lot of strength. But we have to acknowledge our weaknesses to grow beyond them, and we have to be honest to form real connections with other people.
When we support each other, we are all capable of a major Comeback.
