EP18 - Virtue Challenge - Industry w/ Oliver Pappas and Rob Renzi

Stephen J. CarusoOliver Pappas and myself recently launched, hosted and completed a 13 Day Virtue Challenge hosted on Instagram Live.  Daily conversations exploring Ben Franklin’s 13 human virtues as a framework to elevate our clarity, up our performance and to inspire us to strive for excellence in life and in Faith.  We are relaunching all episodes on the Alto podcast!

In this conversation Oliver explores and unpacks the virtue of Industry "Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions" w/ Rob Renzi.


Rob is an actor, fitness trainer and enthusiast with a background in wrestling, and an avid storyteller of many forms who lives in LA and comes from a large Catholic family - he's the second oldest of 12 and an uncle to 12 nieces and nephews!
Episode Takeaways:
  • No matter how challenging things may get in life, with God "hope is always alive" and He keeps you in the fight.
  • You get the most out of yourself when you live with purpose - cultivate a serve first mentality over selfishness or a "do what you want" attitude.
  • Everyday take a S.I.P. out of life (Spiritual, Intellectual and Physical).
