Part of the mission of this podcast is to highlight the creators, leaders, survivors, and thrivers out there in the world. Well, Mr. Joe Buckner is all of the above. In three years, he went from being a homeless ex-convict to becoming a 6-figure earner, successful entrepreneur, community leader, founder and visionary of Fort Collins’ only boutique boxing studio, Beautifully Savage: The Art of Pugilism. There are moments in life when we find ourselves completely open, vulnerable, and ready to share our truth for reasons that reach beyond fear, and into the heart of our purpose. My conversation with Joe Buckner was one of these moments. He is more than just a powerful example of someone whose embraced the dark lessons of his life, he’s a man who is building a legacy of hope, and inspiring others to fight for the lives that they want. So if you’re curious to find out what it means to let go of the person you are, in order to become the person you’re meant to be, this episode is for you.
