Our Story

Stay grounded,

and always hungry.

Grit is our determination, our will to keep grinding, by staying hungry, and never being satisfied. While we do stop and admire our path to this greatness, and celebrate our small successes, we mostly stay moving. Life will always be throwing obstacles our direction, it is how we handle them, how we learn from our mistakes, how we take that knowledge and improve ourselves that ultimately determines our level of Grit.
