Have you ever had the opportunity to meet and talk to someone you really admire?

Someone you really look up to someone you wanted to be like growing up?

If you've ever met this person were you disappointed that this person wasn't the person you expected him or her to be?

The quote I've heard is, "Never meet your idol because you'll be disappointed."

Someone I admired and looked up to growing up and working out in the gym was Mr. America Tom Terwilliger.  Recently I got to meet him over the phone when I interviewed him.  I was very nervous because this is someone I admired for years and let me tell you I was not disappointed at all.  In fact it was the exact opposite; he's one of the coolest guys I've ever spoken with.

When the interview was over, Tom and I just started talking and this is the conversation we had after we finished our interview together that lasted well over an hour.   I don't even know if Tom realized we were still recording.  This is great stuff because you can hear what a great guy Tom really is and how he went on and on talking with me and helping me and giving me his precious time.

This is unedited audio except I've cut out a few portions of the conversation because we do mention some people's names and some of the money figures that these people may be uncomfortable with. You'll hear a short beeping sound when the audio is cut. It's only about 20 minutes long but it really gives you an inside look at two guys just talking business.  Again we forgot we were being recorded so this is us without our business faces or public persona.

You'll also hear my kids in the background and me talking as I get ready to go out to dinner with my wife.  A few times it sounds like I'm out of breath but I'm trying to get ready to go out and I'm walking up and down stairs during our conversation.
