I love leadership, laughs (and yes) libations.  I also love learning.  Although I've been in leadership roles for over 30 years, I love talking to leaders that are in the trenches and learning what works, what doesn't and what I can do differently.

This podcast is for everyone out there that is working to lead better, get more done and leave a legacy.  Leading others is a deliberative act and we can always get better.

Pop yourself open a cold one, sit back and enjoy!

"When you're going through hell....keep on going" - Winston Churchill

As the James Taylor song goes...."I've seen fire and I've seen rain" (and I know you have too).  In life, we all go through trials and tribulations...what do you do with them?

On this episode I had the privilege to talk with Mike "C-Roc" Ciorrocco and we talk about taking life's sucker punches and leveraging them to do better and be better.  Mike shares his personal story that has pushed him to greater successes and shares some great tips on how you can do the same.


Michael “C-Roc” Ciorrocco is a mortgage and real estate marketing expert with 15 years of experience in the industry... but his insight and expertise extends far beyond real estate.

“What are you made of?”

That’s the question that helps C-Roc push through the tough times, and the question that leads him to even higher levels of success and satisfaction when things are going well. That’s the question that sparks the ultimate accountability: a challenge he extends to himself. That’s the question that drives C-Roc to inspire others as a motivator, facilitator, and dynamic public speaker, as well as a fierce friend and coach.

C-Roc uses this question as a motivational tactic to grow his branch, team, and business. It helps him know his team and build up each individual member. Sure, they’re in the mortgage industry, but one thing he realized when he got to a certain point as a manager is that he’s really in the people- building business.

After 15 years in the mortgage business, this question evolved to become more than a question. It became a tool to help C-Roc and those around him excel at individual tasks. Over time, this question made him a stronger, wiser, more complete person. Today, he’s on a mission to inspire others to see the greatness inside of themselves using those same 5 words, using past life events to fuel their fire.
