About this Episode

Today’s guest needs no introduction… He is the Michael Jordan of Skateboarding, and a man who has single-handedly, been the torch bearer for the sport around the world, for more than 35 years.

When you think of skateboarding, there is only one name that comes to mind, and that is Tony Hawk.

So how did he do it?

How has Tony managed to become a timeless brand, and build a life-long legacy without falling from grace, as so many celebrities eventually do?

Well today we’re going to find out, and we’re going to get personal…

As you’ll hear, Tony’s made his fair share of mistakes along the way as he’s had to learn to deal with fame, shady business partners, and what it takes to be a true partner in a relationship after multiple marriages.

We’ll talk about fatherhood, money, and what’s in store for the future as he attempts to introduce the next generation of kids to skating both in the real world, and digital.

Speaking of building a brand, make sure you head to the class with Ron Lynch called, “How to Write a Creative Brief For Your Business…”

What Ron’s going to teach you in the class is how to define and create a legendary brand using the same process he used to help Go Pro, define theirs.

It’s an incredibly rare chance to learn this skill set from a man who’s helped companies like Go Pro and Samsung, sell billions of dollars worth of products.

About the Instructor

Tony Hawk Professional skateboarder
Tony Hawk was age 9 when his older brother gave him a blue fiberglass skateboard, chipped and scratched from years of use. The first time Tony stepped on it and rolled down an alley behind the family’s house in San Diego, there was no epiphany, no revelation … no foreshadowing whatsoever that he would go on to become the most famous skateboarder of all time. He reached the end driveway, looked back at his brother and shouted, “How do I turn?”
