Eating Crow


Episode 41: Tony Albrecht

Season 2, Ep. 41

Tony Albrecht has seen things.

Things most people will never witness.

His path has been a winding journey through self-doubt, insecurity, destructiveness, self-centeredness and ultimately, a spiritual awakening.

Tony is also one of the most intriguing people I've met (and considering this show's premise, that's saying something).

He's raw.

He's still paving HIS path.

He's becoming an amazing husband and father (note, it's an evolving process, with no deadline).

I connected with Tony's writing instantly. He was gracious enough to share his journey and lessons.

I hope to be with Tony on the remainder of his journey. When you encounter people who are deep and have so much to offer, you make it a priority to build a friendship and to continue to learn and be challenged by their approach to life.

Key Takeaways for Leaders and Entrepreneurs:

  1. Sabbaticals have merit
  2. Reading is fundamental
  3. Many battles win the war

Tony is a quiet leader. He has "it", the thing people are drawn to in any situation. In his youth he let this power consume him. Now he's harnessed it, using it for good.

Leaders can benefit from his thoughtful approach to words, actions and observation. He battles the resistance one-day-at-a-time.
