Episode 021 - I Tipped The Piano Player $55,000

I stopped to have some Chick-fil-A in concourse A of the Atlanta airport and noticed nobody was paying attention to this piano player, so I thought I would sit down and enjoy his music.

After listening for a few minutes I invited him over for a chat.

I learned that Tonee has kidney disease and is on dialysis 9 hours every night but then comes to the airport to play piano 4 hours a day…

I saw his empty tip jar and asked my InstaFamilia to cash app and Venmo a tip for him.

30 minutes later, and after a 20-minute conversation getting to know him, we tipped Tonee $10,000… which has since grown to $55,000 in 12 hours.

In today's podcast, I sit down with Tonee and his wife Mickey to surprise them with the news that their $10,000 tip has morphed into $55,000 and their reaction is everything.

Tonee shares his life journey on today's episode and it is nothing short of heroic. There is so much to learn from his life.

Oh. His wife Mickey TAKES OVER the interview in what is sure to be one of my favorite podcast moments ever...

This is what human hope is all about…
