EP19: Corey Mays - From NFL Athlete to Angel Investor - Always Be Prepared!

“Every day you have the mentality of one foot in, one foot out, at least that was my mentality. I always thought of keeping myself on the edge, because you have to be ready to go. The transition (as an athlete) is hard regardless, but if you are not even thinking about it, you’re really putting yourself in a bad position.” I’m easily impressed with athlete’s accomplishments on the field of play, but not so much once they leave the game, as many tend to wait too long to get their...

“There is no such thing as normal. We all go through sh*t, and we all face different challenges, so We’re all a little bit crazy!” There’s nothing that stops us in our tracks than a sudden illness or injury, but sometimes going through a steady decline without knowing it can be even worse. In today’s episode with Eric Kussin, we cover the very serious and increasingly relevant topic of mental health, and how the stigma attached needs to be lifted and tossed aside. Eric is doing wonders in...

EP16: Grace Luczak - Rowing to a World Record and the Olympics

“When you have this big moment of failure - when you don’t accomplish what you were going after, you have to take time to re-evaluate your strategy for the next time!” I am so impressed with Olympians, and it doesn’t matter if they medal or not. The amount of time and dedication needed to compete once every four years, often for just a few seconds, is an extraordinary example of perseverance, determination and grit. My guest on the Make Your Mark podcast today, Grace Luczak, is a prime...


EP15: Rudy Reyes - From Starbucks to Successful Sports Podcaster

“For me it was about the entertainment value; but with that comes the responsibility to tell it honestly, truthfully, and with energy.

And I really mean much more, as Rudy has recorded several hundred episodes, interviewing a wide array of sports and...

My guest today, Lauren Walsh, is making a name for herself in a male-dominated industry, adding her secret sauce to directly help athletes with much of what happens off the...


EP13: Chelsea Mandello - Chelsea Mandello - From Navy Veteran to Vetrepreneur

EP10: Cody Royle - Taking People Innovation from the Locker Room into the Boardroom

“As a leader, your job is to make yourself redundant. So if your team is doing really well, they should be self-sufficient. And once they’ve gotten themselves to a place where they are self-sufficient, they don’t need you anymore.” What impresses me the most about Cody Royle, my guest on today’s podcast, is how clearly he sees through all the BS in the corporate world, and is able to pinpoint what truly drives great leaders, what makes them compete and win, and how they continue to produce...


EP9: Ted Studdard - From the Battlefield to the Boardroom

“Leadership 101: You trust people, you empower people. They’ll make mistakes, but as long as it’s not illegal, immoral, or unethical you stand by them. And you take the opportunity and you teach them.“ When you want to learn anything about leadership, you need to find someone who walks the walk behind all the talk, and today’s guest, Colonel Ted Studdard, United States Marine Corps (Ret) is a prime example of that walk! Ted served our nation for 25 years as a Marine, rising through the...

Today’s guest, Amobi Okugo, helps athletes navigate the often tumultuous world that they’ve been thrown into, calming the waters and providing a fundamental set of guidelines for financial literacy.
