Some stories are so good that they seemingly defy reality. Enter Chris Lynam.
He dropped out of school. His mom fired him from the family business. Like me, he wasn't going to become a professional basketball player.
Fast forward to 2018, and he and his wife Daisy are owners and franchisees of four of the top ten Arthur Murray Dance Studios--a brand that has been dominating dance for over 100 years.
How did dancing until 2am set off a chain reaction of success for Chris? What help did he get along the way? What's going on the NBA playoffs this year, and why do neither Chris nor I think the Rockets will win it all?
It's all here. Enjoy this episode.
