Othello:

  • We are all striving for a connection, either that be a connection of understanding oneself or connecting with another individual for means of growth… understanding F3 mission statement. 
  • Making the choice to make yourself vulnerable and open for possible connections.
  • Once you establish a connection, grow and learn from it. 
  • The connections you do have, ask yourself if they are growing and learning and is that being reciprocated… are YOU growing and learning?
  • Value and appreciate the team you have around you which is based off of solid connections due to you being vulnerable, open, and held accountable. My team? Smashmouth, Rancid, and Armbar. #TurtlePower
  • We’re all superheroes, welcome to the Academy! 

Thank you all for coming on down to the WOODSHED! We had a blast planning this beatdown and we hope you all had a great workout! Until next time, superheroes!

Cheers!
