Join me as I sit down with an incredible individual who I have a tremendous amount of respect for (PLAY). Billy O’Neill is not only a legendary pro skater and industry leader, but he’s also the owner of Mesmer Skate Company and co-host of the Jump Street Podcast. In this interview, we cover a wide range of topics that we both felt passionate about. From our shared love of skating and the impact it’s had on our lives, to discussing our personal experiences with marriage, religion, psychology, and motivation. It was a genuine pleasure to have such an authentic and thought-provoking conversation with someone who I admire so much. I’m excited for you to hear it too. - Brazilionaire.
