Finding Your True North with Tony Lipani

Your True North

When was the last time you were hit between the eyes?  Like the scene from the movie Gerry McGuire. Tom Cruise leaves his current employer to follow his own True North. This is what Finding Your True North is all about.

The Podcast is about finding happiness in your life……about following your instincts and taking the risk in life.  I remember when I took over the Aquinas Football Program as a 25-year-Old Head coach.  As I prepared for my first game leading as a Head Coach, I purposely planned to onside kick after our first touchdown.  Every single player on our team knew this.  We practiced it every day for 14 days and sure enough it happened as planned.  We scored a touchdown, onside kicked and recovered the ball!

I took the risk that day…. just like my other Podcast Heart Attack at age 45 Alive.  I haven’t released a new episode in 36 months but on Christmas Day 2019 we had 25 downloads bringing the download total close to 30,000 around the world.  That means 30,000 people have listened to me tell my story with my only intention of helping them recover from a Heart Attack.

Please take the time to listen to this new show,  I promise that I won’t let you down as we all Find Your True North together!

Captain Bill Lortz is the premier smallmouth bass charter captain on the Eastern Basin of Lake Ontario!  Bill has been fishing on Oneida Lake and the 1000 Islands region for over 20 years. He has been tournament bass fishing for the past 16 years on both the local and regional level. I was introduced to guiding by my uncle who ran a successful charter business on Lake Ontario. Through my years of being a first mate on his boat I learned and experienced first hand the value of educating fisherman. Our goal at NY NORTHCOUNTRY BASSIN' is for you to not only catch fish but to learn.
