Tony Giuliano on Feedback, Internships and Becoming a Mentor

Tony Giuliano is the new Account Educator for EXOS at Google. Working under the Director for Talent Development, he is responsible for helping shape internal education for the account, introducing new hires to the EXOS methodology, and running the internship program.

Before finding his way to Google HQ, he was pulling double duty as the Office Manager and a Performance Coach at IFAST, with stops at Stanford University and Absolute Performance Training in Buffalo, NY along the way.

In this show, Tony and I talk about how he became known as the Bay Area’s Most Dangerous White Belt in BJJ, how he’s creating an environment where his coaches can success, tips on giving feedback, and how he’s gone about building an internship program from the ground up.

Tony is not only a great coach, but an even better human being, and someone I always enjoy chatting with.

The Best Protein on the Market Today?

For many years, I simply disregarded the age-old advice of getting liquid protein in either during or after workouts.

Part of this was due to the fact that most had so much crap in them I didn’t want to put them in my body, and others might have been high-quality but tasted absolutely disgusting.

However, if you’re looking for a protein that’s not only high-quality but also tastes amazing, you need to check out Momentous.

I’ve been using Momentous for several months now, and I can tell you it’s hands-down the best tasting protein I’ve ever had. But it’s not just me – I have numerous elite athletes who are very picky with their protein powders, and every one of them raves about how great Momentous protein shakes taste.

And while the taste is amazing, the best part about Momentous is that they’re incredibly transparent with what goes into their product. You never have to worry about a tainted or dirty supplement, as all of their products are NSF and Informed Sport certified.

If you’d like to try Momentous out for yourself, here’s how to do it:

  1. Head over to
  2. If you want to try a sample, use the code RobertsonSample
  3. When you’re order to order, use the code Robertson20 to save 20% off your first order!

Regardless of which option you choose, I guarantee once you try Momentous protein shakes, you’ll never go back to anything else!
