Charlie Brenneman walked away from his job as a Spanish teacher, with a dream to fight in the UFC – a dream he ultimately accomplished in a big way. A naturally curious person, he has turned his lifelong love of learning and helping people into a career, and is now a recognized podcaster and speaker. He’s just a really good human being, and we have really fun conversation in this podcast.
In this week’s show, we discuss:
- His path from the classroom into the UFC octagon
- His connections to the military
- The learning process he uses to absorb and retain new information
- His podcast and speaking career
