In this episode Joe and Dan speak to strength entrepreneur Bert Sorin. Bert is the president and co-owner of Sorinex Strength equipment, one of the top strength equipment companies in the world. Bert talks about the humble beginnings of Sorinex when his father Rich Sorin started welding equipment in their garage. How they overcame adversity and sacrificed everything to grow their company. We talk about how their sole mission of surrounding themselves with extradentary people and having extradentary experiences has been the driving force behind Sorinex’s success.
