In this episode of the Samson Strength Coach Collective, Derek Ward joins us to share his untraditional journey into running a successful private training facility.

Derek is the Founder of Upward Human Performance in Milford, CT, and in this podcast he shares with us his story around overcoming obstacles early in life, being determined and confident in his desire to be successful, as well as how to view experiences on a neutral scale in order to stay calm, composed, and make sound decisions when life happens!
