I have a couple favorite podcasts I like to play to keep me motivated and this is one of them. I got a bunch of my friends hooked too after listening.
Love they are in person
Really impressed David takes the time to fly to his guests to make sure the conversation quality is high.
Big jump is money!!
I’m a former pro athlete and I love the ins and out an athlete’s life, what inspires them, what brings them passion and motivates them to do more after their careers end.
Great, insightful stories about what athletes do after their careers!
