Rogue #18: Bill Cakmis

Performance Coach

Bill Cakmis is just about the only person doing what he does in the country. He works with top-tier talent from new anchors to celebrities to athletes to make them better for their job. That may sound vague, and that would be because what he does is rather abstract. You might call him a talent coach. You might call him a therapist. You might call him a mentor. Truth be told, he’s all of these things. And because of the caliber of people he’s coached over the years, he has a wealth of understanding of the human spirit and how to embolden it for fruitful living. 

I want to share my favorite quote from this episode. This is a great example of the things you’ll hear over the course of the next few moments. Bill says, “It’s not about obtaining the goal. It’s about having the goal. Mastery is a journey, it’s not a destination.”

So my friend, if this resonates with you, I think this episode will be an ointment to your wounded soul!

ABOUT The Rogue Ones Podcast:

Humans are hard-wired to survive - to live as easily as possible. To get from point A to point B with as little stress as possible. Or at least - that’s how we think life should be. But some of us decide we don’t want to live that way.

My name is Leslie Eiler Thompson and I am the host and creator of The Rogue Ones podcast, in which I curate conversations with extraordinary folks doing fascinating things - fearlessly living remarkable lives and deciding a straight path from point A to point B is boring. They’re going rogue. 

In his book Outliers, Malcom Gladwell suggests that “Success is not a random act. It arises out of a predictable and powerful set of circumstances and opportunities.” 

These rogues, all successful in their varied fields, openly share stories of failure, success, insecurity, lucky-breaks…and they are hand-picked for those who listen to the podcast series, desperately wishing to live with a bend toward the remarkable.

It’s my supposition that the most remarkable among us have found ways to bring their circumstances, character traits, and values together to build extraordinary realities. These people fascinate me - and I bet they fascinate you, too. By hearing these stories, we can adopt a rogue lifestyle with a bend toward the remarkable.
