The Mindset to Change Your Life’s Direction, w/ John Brontsema

My whole life was dedicated to baseball from an early time. People say, “Don’t put your identity,” or “You’re not a baseball player. That’s not your identity.” It really is though. While it’s not, it feels like it, because every decision I made, everything I was passionate about was baseball and achieving the next level.

On this episode of The SKYLER IRVINE Show, Skyler is joined by his guest, Anthony LaFlam. Anthony is the owner of Wren Wood Works in Phoenix, Arizona, specializing in custom, handmade wood furniture.

Anthony’s favorite Arizona venue is anywhere that has chips and guac and says that it is a requirement that he does not need an explanation for… It is guac.

He says that the biggest obstacle that he faces regularly is self-doubt or ego. Creating something from scratch, and literally putting blood, sweat, and tears into it can be exhausting and rewarding at the same time. They hope people love the piece and want approval but there is always someone creating something better, faster, or cheaper. There is no famine. There is always room for another craftsman or product. Working through these thoughts is always a challenge, according to Anthony.

His advice to people trying to get into the field he is in is to just do it. You just have to start. You will never accomplish anything if you never start trying. He even admits that he struggles with that himself.

Check out The Churchill in Downtown Phoenix to see some of the custom furniture he created for the grand opening!
