How do I set myself apart from my competition?

There is a lot of language that I don't understand. I like to consider myself a fairly smart woman, but some things are just dumb complicated for no reason. I've learned that sometimes that's by design. I call these "gatekeepers". These are people or entities that use complex jargon (see what I did there lol) or a lot of pages so that you either won't read it or won't understand it. I'm going to break down what a Unique Selling Proposition is because let me tell you... if you don't really...

What if I'm not good at anything else?

So, I was watching Last Chance U on Netflix and many of the guys said that if they didn't go pro, hell, D1 they didn't know what they were gonna do. That's not a hopeful place to be in. With that mindset you are bound to make stupid mistakes, not because you're a bad person, but you don't have hope for the future or your present. Sometimes we aren't giving ourselves enough credit...


What if I haven't done anything yet?

*Full transparency* This is one of the toughest areas for me. It is for a lot of people actually. Let me give you some context. I never went pro. I played D1 ball, but I have no name recognition outside of the Howard University sphere of influence. That is also 98% of amateur athletes. So when you are trying to build your personal brand it's tempting to try and fake it til you make it. That actually used to be what the old head told you. This isn't to be confused with a phrase like "dress...

Should teams be responsible for players after they finish?

There are many things that athletic organizations are responsible for and should do for their athletes, making sure their lives are good after they retire or finish isn't one of them. I may be in the minority on this, but it's your responsibility to make sure you are living a life you are thrilled to live. I heard something interesting the other day that went like this "Life is either an adventure you get to go on or a trial you have to endure." The end of sport is sometimes...

Networking is dead

It seems like there is some badge of honor that you get if you declare yourself "self-made".

In this episode you will learn: No matter what you call it, the key is to get to know people in a way that leave a nice memory for them. When they...

Getting Results (Strategy Session)

Athletes and people that work with them always say that they don't have time to think about anything else. I get it, you're busy, but it's totally doable. If people are getting PhD's and actively playing, it's not time that's the issue. It's how you're using it.
