Brick Reilly is a phenom. Diagnosed as profoundly deaf at the age of 2, he has overcome adversity and carved out a niche for himself, as an accomplished competition tree climber, entrepreneur, fitness advocate, and all-around badass. In this conversation we talk about the challenges of being born deaf, how a cochlear implant changed his life, being a daredevil and how he found his way into the trade, his obsession with fitness, lunchtime grinds, competition climbing, his side business, writing on his blog, mentors, and much, much more. I know you guys are going to get a lot out of this one!
