EP 87 – Do you give to your community? | Da Firma Kimonos Company Owner Ricardo Tubbs

Ricardo Tubbs is a black belt and the owner and instructor at Da Firma Training Center as well as Da Firma Kimono Company.

Ricardo did a great breakdown of the thirteen leadership principles from Collin Powell’s book “It worked for me”. He also talked about the importance of preparation.

My takeaway came from the interview came when he spoke of “Giving back to the community,” which inspired me to title this episode “Do you give to your community?”

Stick around for my final thoughts after the interview and I expand on this topic. Stay tuned right after jiu-jitsu tribe’s message. Enjoy the podcast! OSS!
