EP23: Cory Procter - NFL-er with Essential Advice for Athletes!

“You just keep busting your butt and showing up, and good things are going to happen. I had this insane work ethic and the ability to work past everyone else. It raised everyone else's game, and if they couldn’t do it they just fell off.” There are thousands of retired professional athletes, many who struggle with the transition into their next careers. A big part of my Make Your Mark podcast is to shine a spotlight on those who are making a positive impact after they leave their sport,...


EP22: Chris Jackson - US Army Veteran, Law Enforcement, and Transition Expert

“I want to help people get to know what they really want to do in life. I struggled with it, and most veterans have a lot of issues transitioning. Whether it’s one person a day or one person a month, I just want to be able to help people.” As a civilian, it can be truly difficult to understand what our nation’s veterans and first responders have in their DNA that compels them to run towards danger to help, that makes them want to give everything they can for the common good. I had the...


EP21: Anja Bolbjerg - Olympian and Coach / Trainer for Athletes and Professionals

“As athletes in general we are not very good at asking for help. We’ve had a coach who has always stepped in to see when we needed help if we had an injury etc… but other than that it’s not in our nature. We fight, and even if we keep banging our head on the same wall or knocking on the same door, at the core we know to fight, go for it and push. Asking for help is not one of our strengths.” Yes, there are lots of Olympians out there, those who have competed in a variety of games and...


EP20: Chris Christian - It All Started with Elvis Presley

“I’ve had a thousand songs recorded, The Carpenters, you name it, and there’s only one person in my whole career who ever asked me how I felt about what they did with my song, and it was Elvis Presley.” He recorded a song for Elvis Presley. Yes, that Elvis. The King. At just the age of 21 to boot. But my guest today, Chris Christian, didn’t stop there. 2000 songs, 100 albums, discovering Amy Grant, and a Wikipedia page chock full of accomplishments has led Chris to release a collection...


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...


EP18: Eric Kussin - We’re ALL a Little Crazy, Aren’t We?

“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...


EP17: Gus Frerotte - 15-year NFL QB changing the future of Brain Health

“I just want to be remembered for being a great human being, we all have different walks we go on, but if I can just be a good person and help others on their journey that’s worth it in the end” It’s one thing to make your mark on the field of play, but when you can transition into a venture that can help millions of people globally, now you’ve got my interest. Today’s guest, Gus Frerotte, happened to have a 15 year NFL career as a quarterback, and has a long list of accomplishments....


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 when you can do all of those things, it’s something that people want to listen to.” Having the guts to make a complete transition isn’t easy, and Rudy Reyes, host of The Rudedog Show radio show, can tell you all about it, and much more. And I really mean much more, as Rudy has recorded several hundred episodes, interviewing a wide array of sports and...


EP14: Lauren Walsh - From Collegiate Mentor to Professional Sports Brand Manager

“Athletes are figuring out how to leverage who they are, where they came from, what they’re known for, and then how to make money off of that for the rest of their lives.” Professional athletes are faced with countless decisions, both on and off the field, and many struggle with the weight of making the right choices. 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...


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

“You really have to develop stamina. There will be times where you are constantly exhausted and you have to learn to keep going and push those boundaries (just like a muscle) because it really will make you better with any business you have.” Our nation’s veterans have sacrificed so much for us, and a growing number are becoming entrepreneurs, looking to continue the spirit of giving once they leave the service. Today’s guest on the #MakeYourMark podcast, Chelsea Mandello, is a shining...


EP12: Michael O’Brien - Triumph Over Trauma

“I knew my life was in the balance… I promised myself if I lived, life would be different and I would stop chasing happiness.” We will all likely face a life-altering moment when it is least expected. Michael O’Brien was cycling when his happened, and what followed became the cornerstone of his life’s mission today. Michael was nearly killed over 17 years ago, and what he has done since then to turn things around, and become the positive influence he is now is the basis for my episode...


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...


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...


EP8: Amobi Okugo - From Soccer Star to Financial Guru

“Focus on what you’re making, and how you can prolong what you’re making to last a lifetime.” We all work very hard to get to where we are financially, some of us more than others, but we really strike it big if we are smart with what we do with that money. 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. Amobi not only has a great...


EP7: Garrick Jones - The New Visionary of Professional Football

“You’re no longer a number when you’re dealing with the SDFL... We want everyone to be able to take care of their families with the product that is on the field.” Today’s episode gives me greater hope for the future of our nation’s professional athletes. My guest, Garrick Jones, tells us how his professional football league, the SDFL, is poised to not only become a blueprint for how leagues and teams should treat their players, but potentially transform professional sports across the...


EP6: Kim Cayce - From Professional Golf to Verbatim Press

“When people jump into something they love doing, it’s infectious.. and people want to be a part of that.” Today’s guest has been successful at every step, and I have no reason to believe it won’t continue for years to come. Kim Cayce was a professional golfer, pitched her design in front of Shark Tank in Season 1, and has founded, and been an integral part of, four successful companies. She is currently launching her fifth. “You have to know if you have an idea, or a business. Start out...


EP5: Ruben Gonzalez - From Benchwarmer to Four-Time Olympic Athlete

“You’ve got to be willing to fight for your dream. And it’s not gonna be easy. It’s always going to be hard. It’s not about the dream, it’s about the person you become through the fighting. ” Today’s guest will make anyone who feels their dreams are out of reach think twice. Ruben Gonzalez is a four-time Olympian, a highly sought after professional keynote speaker and a bestselling author. Ruben sat on the bench on his college soccer team, but decided at the age of 21 to compete in the...


EP4: Marques Ogden - From NFL Player to Failed Business Owner to Nationally Recognized Speaker

“The NFL was a saving grace for me. They bailed me out when they didn’t have to.” Today’s guest, Marques Ogden, is truly larger than life! But getting lighter, and you’ll have to hear how in this conversation I had with this 5 year NFL veteran who is currently a leadership and motivational speaker throughout the US. “I ended up working for $8.25 on the graveyard shift with a janitorial staff. That is when I decided that something had to change… this was my life-changing moment.” I...
