Josh Kalinowski, entrepreneur and former professional baseball player, joins Jamie to discuss how he overcame an identity crisis triggered by an unexpected end to his playing days. After rising high for years, Josh was quickly broken across multiple dimensions. Touching on a second period of adversity Josh encountered, the two discuss the 2008 real estate crash. Josh is a husband, a father of four, a goal crusher, a real estate investor, and multidimensional CEO.
