Interview with Tommy Baker of Resist Average Academy

In this episode of the podcast, I interview Tommy Baker the host of the Resist Average Academy Podcast. I met Tommy in LA earlier this year and have gotten to know him while I’m in the mastermind that I am a member of. While we were in LA, someone asked me about starting a podcast and my response was simple, “All you have to do is pull out your iPhone and hit record. That’s what I did.”

A couple of weeks later Tommy tagged me in a Facebook post and said I had been one of the final voice to signify he needed to get his podcast idea off the ground. In December of 2015, Tommy began recording the Resist Average Academy and put his first episode out January of 2016.

Since he launched Tommy has had some amazing guests come on to share their stories of how they overcame great obstacles to build business, change their lifestyle and achieve success in life.

On his site Tommy describes himself this way:

I do one thing, and I do it exceptionally:

I inspire, motivate and create powerful results with people’s physical body to act as a catalyst to improve all other areas of life.

I can say this first hand that Tommy is one of the most positive and energetic people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Our conversation is deep, passionate, and insightful.
