JJ Birden on Work Like An Athlete Blog

I recently read the book Work Like An Athlete, Championship Training 4 The Game of Business. It was written by the speaker, coach and mountain athlete Jarod Cogswell. I love it right away! Why? I could certainly relate to it as a former professional athlete and now an entrepreneur and keynote speaker

During one of my signature keynotes, I discuss the similarities and differences in the athletic and business world.  Obviously in athletics, your physical attributes play a key role. Even in the NFL, if you don't hit certain athletic benchmarks in speed, quickness, power, and strength, odds are you will not even get a shot. Whereas in the business world, you control the odds and it's based on your effort and commitment. Now that's something you can control. 

Jarod's newest blog is an interview I did with him titled, Winning "Secrets" off the Field with Former NFL Receiver, JJ Birden.  Follow the link to find out what some of those secrets are.
