Entrepreneur, world-record holder, Olympic-level athlete, fear guru
Inc. Magazine called Patrick Sweeney one of the most interesting men alive, but he considers himself ordinary and able to do things anyone can learn if they learn how to use fear as fuel. He teaches how the neuroscience of fear can be a competitive advantage and why we need to find more fear in our life.
In 2018, Patrick Sweeney won the world's toughest bicycle race – the Race Across America almost 20 years after he finished 2nd place in the Olympic rowing trials, he's founded four tech companies while creating eight patents and raising almost $50 million. Patrick has leveraged fear as fuel for peak performance and to create a life of passion, happiness and fulfillment. As the son of Irish immigrants, he was the first to go to college in his family and ever since has refused to accept upper limits set by family, friends or society. He teaches audience how to break through those limits as well.
Some fears you can face head on, and some show up unexpectedly to shake you to your core. When Patrick was told he had Leukemia, he, again, faced fear head on and learned one of the biggest life secrets to success.
When he realized the power of fear to fuel amazing feats in all aspects of life he began interviewing the world's top neuroscientists and psychologist for his next book "Fear as Fuel" and to find out why and how our mind can lock us in anxiety ridden prison or lead us to the life of our dreams. His mission is to share those secrets with millions of people.
As a winner in sports and a winner in business he is committed to leveraging those fear lessons on himself and channel them into setting world records by being the first person to attempt cycling the Seven Summits.
