The Newsletter

You’re busy. We all are. But we want to be better for our student-athletes.

So every week, you get an email from me. In that email, you’ll get some quick resources that I’ve curated from hosting a podcast, listening to other podcasts, reading books, checking out articles, watching videos, and more.

I am not an expert on anything. But I love learning. And if I can save you an hour here, an hour there, and give you more time while also helping you learn, then you’re one step closer to being just a little bit better.

So sign up for FREE! You’ll never pay a nickel for the newsletter. Ever.

You can check out the example right here on the screen, or you can hit this link and see the most recent handful. No strings attached.
