EP 66 – Find Your Passion & Live It! | Tinguinha BJJ Owner Mauricio “Tinguinha” Mariano

Mauricio “Tinguinha” Mariano is a 5th-degree back belt, the owner of Tinguinha Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Yorba Linda, California, and also the national director for the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program for all UFC Gyms.

He talked about the importance of having mentors in your life, his struggle with asking for help, which I resonate very much so and my take away from the interview was when I asked him about a suggestion to all aspiring entrepreneurs, and his answer inspired me to title this episode: “Find your passion and live it.”

Stick around for my final thoughts after the interview when I talk about the correlation between passion and authenticity.
