Dear RMAX Family,
A couple of days have passed since our last CST and TACFIT Seminars and I have been spending time reflecting, not only on this past week but of my entire TACFIT journey.
Flash back six years ago, when I met Coach Scott Sonnon and he introduced me to my first TACFIT experience! At the time, I didn’t know if I should run for cover or stick around and risk it all for this bald man, standing in the corner, arms crossed, and a slight crazed look in the eyes. Well, fortunately for me, I possess enough character flaws that I dove right in and I haven’t looked back since.
At that moment I was welcomed, with open arms, into a very special group of people, the RMAX Team. During this time I have come to know Scott, not only as a coach, but also a mentor and a friend. He has taken me to the edge and back in my training more times than I can remember. Scott has a considerable amount of experience to share and he has always taken the time to listen and provide insight into training, business, and life. He has literally saved me years of wandering and mistakes by sharing his lessons learned and accelerating my growth. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for Scott’s selfless guidance as I continue my journey.
Experiencing a CST and TACFIT Seminar is a sight to behold. The energy is palpable, the combined talent of faculty, head coaches, coaches and instructors produce a synergy, unparalleled. The experience, intelligence, professionalism, and passion of all involved create an incredible sharing and learning experience. I always leave with a great deal of emotion. Reacquainting with old friends, meeting new ones, delving deeper into my practice with expert guidance, and just having a great time makes it difficult to say goodbye.
When a man treks into the unknown he cannot go it alone. As he faces fear and adversity he must look to his right, and to his left, and know he can depend on his team for the support and courage to continue. His success lies in the balance of the team. I am honored to be a member of the greatest team, one that leads from the front, one that insures the success of all it’s members through trust and support of one another.
This past week I was appointed Division Chief of TACFIT Fire Fighter. I am deeply, deeply humbled and proud to serve. This team has given me so much, I can’t help but get excited for the opportunity to give in return.
I now stand on the shoulders of all of you and I want you to know that it is because of you, your support, encouragement, and faith that I am here. I want to thank every member of the RMAX Team with a promise to serve with the same professionalism and enthusiasm that is standard of all RMAX members.
My first order of business as Division Chief is to put the World on notice. “World, you better watch the hell out! TACFIT is coming to a neighborhood near you.”
