When I was 17 my mother took me to a Tony Robbins workshop. It was called "Fear Into Power, The Firewalk Experience." That's right, me and a group of about 5,000 people over the course of eight hours would learn to change our beliefs and walk across a bed of hot coals without being burned.

This was a life-changing experience for me, a strong metaphor on the influence of the mind in moving through fear and transforming it into power.

When the country shut down mid-March for COVID-19, I was scared. I was scared for my family, my business, and my community.

What impact would this have on all of us?
