72. "Athlete to Entrepreneur 2" (November 2020) w/ Classye James, Rachel Maeng, Jonathan Orr, & RJ Hively!

Thrive After Sports w/ Taj Dashaun

It’s no secret that athletes make great entrepreneurs.  The skills we acquired during our years of competition prepared us for the intense level of discipline, personal development, and follow-through that it takes to win in entrepreneurship.  "Athlete to Entrepreneur" is an online event for athletes to come together and share their entrepreneurial journeys with the world.  The goal is to educate, impact, and inspire current and former athletes to think outside of the box, become change agents for the communities they serve, and carve out a new lane for themselves post-sports.  Check out the full video here: https://youtu.be/AtoBGGEhGBc This event was sponsored by selfpublishn30days.com and my new book, "Thrive After Sports"  Pre-order your copy today by clicking here! http://www.thriveaftersportsbook.com/ Thank you for your support!  Connect with me at https://www.tajdashaun.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tajdashaun/ Instagram: @tajdashaun  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/coachtajdashaun YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdQgi_hDXaP5-6OtX_Nyf4A
