Melissa Lockard: "No" Doesn't Stop You At The Door

Ensample: The Shipman Experience

I had the pleasure of being joined by Melissa Lockard, Staff Writer/Editor with the Athletic in the Bay Area. As a fan of her articles, I was interested in digging into her story and finding out how she got where she is today. We discuss her upbringing, her hardships, her influences along the way, and her relentless drive to achieve the level of credibility and success she has seen today. Last, of course, we talk a little baseball and what a 60 game season may entail for Major League Baseball as a whole. Let her words be inspiration to anyone who has aspirations of improving in any aspect of life. "No doesn't stop you at the door."
