Episode 14: Charlie Rocket
Ladies and gentleman, meet the one they call “The Rocket”. Well, Charlie Rocket but whatever you want to call him the guy is an inspiration and I had a blast getting to hear his story.
Charlie is known primarily for managing rap superstar 2 Chainz but when it is all said and done, he is going to be remembered for a whole heck of a lot more!
We had an instant connection because Charlie is a basketball enthusiasts who has loved the game ever since he first stepped onto a court as a little kid. His shares his some pretty incredible basketball stories in which he took a lot of money from NBA players in shooting competitions.
But it hasn’t been all butterflies and rainbows for Charlie.
Early on in his life, Charlie was overlooked and underestimated but his tenacity to believe in himself and ‘dream crazy’ allowed him to do things most people never will do!
Charlie’s energy is contagious and you can feel how much he cares and wants to help people. I was blown away by his work ethic and willingness to embrace the term ‘whatever it takes’ which is something I’ve tried to embody throughout my life.
Today, Charlie is on a mission to inspire people with his story and actions. I don’t want to give away too much so you’ll just have to check out this week episode for yourself, it’s my favorite one so far!
