I am what you call a “long Shot”. I come from a long line of “long shots”. My grandmother and her family escaped the Russian concentration camps at gunpoint on her way to America.My father was a homeless New York street kid who eventually became a millionaire, then lost everything due to a reckless lifestyle and found himself penniless and living homeless again.I was an unplanned child, born over two months premature, with immunity issues. Growing up, I was diagnosed with a “learning disability”, Dyslexia, and had a bad stutter.I grew up in a broken home. I was weak, riddled with health chellenges, frequently confused, felt out of place, socially awkward, quiet, hyper, and impulsive. When I was a kid, people were not familiar with the terms ADD, ADHD, attention deficit hyper disorder (something I learned I had later on). I eventually overcame many of these issues and have found much success and failures along the way. Below are my milestones, obstacles, failures, pivotal points of inspiration, and successes.Age 8, I was placed in a school at UCLA's Fernald Child Study Center for behavior disorders. After several months, I was able to squeak by with enough progress to go back to my regular school. I was a smart kid but couldn't focus. I was terrible at sports and didn't excel at anything, really.Age 10, Saw the movie Rocky. Inspired by the main character who I could identify with. He thought of himself as “dumb”, but he was a funny, kind-hearted guy who never had any success but would fight hard even though the odds were stacked up against him. The only difference between Rocky and me was he was strong…So, I decided I would become strong and healthy and started exercising every day.Age 16, became a physical fitness trainer.Age 17, I was the founder and president of our high school's leading social club (the Centaurs)Age 18, I was ready to take on the world! I wanted to do two things. Be an entrepreneur and actor. My high school tutor told me, “You should try to find something to do with your hands; not everyone is suited for the things they want.” The day after I graduated high school, I started my own tool company – I failed miserably and quit after two weeks. Could my high school tutor be right?I did not have the money or interest in going to college, but I attended community college and took classes in three subjects that interested me, psychology, business, and acting.Age 19, Started stand-up comedy, appearing at the Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and L.A. Cabaret.Age 20, I started promoting nightclubs and became known as the leading nightclub promoter of the “young Hollywood scene” with my club called “Off The Wall.”Age 21, I got my first acting role when my friend Paul Thomas Anderson cast me to play the lead role of Dirk Diggler in the original short film “The Dirk Diggler Story” that later became the feature film “Boogie Nights” which I Appear in as well.Age 22, I organized and produced arguably the largest promotional movie event ever for the 1989 movie “Batman,” working closely with Guber Peters Productions, Warner Bros., and Rob Friedman. Age 23, Became heavily involved in personal growth, NLP, psychology, and the study of human nature. Produced and directed a documentary on the Los Angeles nightclub scene titled “The Scene”.Age 24, Produced a Rave Concert Tour around the United States while producing and directing a documentary on the creators of House Music and the Rave Scene across the U.S. titled “Generation of Sound.”Age 25, Left my nightclub promotion business to follow my passion, acting/filmmaking, and started working as a production assistant on feature films, commercials, and music videos. Age 29, Wrote, direct and produce a thirty-minute dramatic short film, “Rituals and Resolutions”.

I'm trying to show that there isn't one way to get it done.   The key to coaching in general is to be honest and have an objective view. I just shut up and watch. Then ill make suggestions.   My first step is to help them be more explosive. Mostly its about being an athlete. Just because you're standing on a pile of dirt, doesn't mean you have to throw different than you would at shortstop.    I treat every single pitcher as an individual. I have a toolbox of ideas, but I don't have a set way of teaching mechanics.   One of the reasons i put everyone out on twitter is because i'm curious and I want to show that there are a bunch of people that throw a lot of different ways.   I like the idea of being the person that nobody wants to throw with.   When you start measuring stuff it brings out competition in everyone. The competitive drive will cause everyone to improve.   Resources Driveline Ben Brewster Lantz Wheeler Rapsodo Texas Baseball Ranch   Contact Info for Rob   Twitter  @pitchingninja   Email Rob@pitching.ninja Website and Social Media sites for the show www.aotcpodcast.com Twitter @aotc_podcast Facebook facebook.com/aotcpodcast Instagram aotc_podcast Contact Info for Jonathan Twitter @j_gelnar7 Email jgelnar7@gmail.com

The amazing story of how two guys started a revolutionary real estate e-commerce company that has transacted more than $30 billion in real estate--online.   Rob Friedman and his high school friend Jeff started an offline auction company that did reasonably well. But then the internet came along and they decided to put some listings online. Things really took off when, after four years of badgering the owner, they bought the domain Auction.com for $1.7 million and rebranded the company. Today, Auction.com is the country's (and possibly the world's) largest e-commerce seller of real estate. And they hold a world record! The Auction.com platform was used to facilitate the largest verified e-commerce transaction in history based on current Guinness World Records information: The $96 million sale of Manhattan Towers, a two-building, 309,734 square-foot office property in Southern California.
