    The conversation is likely the longest one ever done on The MFCEO podcast and it’s perfectly fitting that the most valuable lesson doesn’t come until more than halfway into it. Mark Bell spent many years putting in the tedious, repetitive, hard work to be an elite level powerlifter but his biggest financial success actually came _after_ he’d officially retired from his competitive career. Both his curiosity and passion for powerlifting stayed with him, which eventually brought him to his invention, the “Sling Shot”, long after most people have given up on their goals or dreams. So sit back, tune everything else out and give this lengthy episode your undivided attention because it perfectly illustrates why Andy talks so frequently about “doing the work” and having “aggressive patience”. Plenty of hard earned wisdom in this one.
