EP 55 – Become Obsessed With Your Passion | BJJ Commentator Riccardo Ammendolia

Riccardo Ammendolia is a first-degree black belt from the Mendes Brothers and a jiu-jitsu competition commentator since 2009.

He talked about pursuing his passion for promoting jiu-jitsu, not only with teaching but especially with commentating tournaments. And my takeaway came when I asked him what advice would he give to someone who is pursuing a unique career, and he said: Become obsessed with your passion, which inspired the title of this episode.

Stick around for my final thoughts after the interview at [1:05:27] when I expand the concept of becoming obsessed with your passion.
