RC32: The Life Of An Athlete with Joel Green
Manage episode 346962130 series 3288096
I've often wondered what life is like as a professional athlete. Maybe that’s because growing up my fantasy was to be a football player or because I intuitively know that sports, much like business isn't what it's all cracked up to be on the outside and that there is a lot that goes into it, especially at the highest level.
That's why I'm super excited to welcome Joel Green onto #raisingconsciousness in this episode.
Joel Green is CEO of Pro Level Training, the National Director of Nike Sports Camps, a former professional basketball player, and a renowned motivational speaker. After retiring from his career in professional basketball, Joel Green founded Pro Level Training (PLT), which has become a 7-figure company. In addition to running PLT, Green is also the National Director for Nike Sports Camps as well as an accomplished speaker.
Joel’s unique differentiator in business and as an individual is his ability to see life objectively from multiple viewpoints. Unfortunate circumstances as a youth helped to groom and refine Joel into adulthood. Growing up in an abandoned home and seeing both sides of life has really helped him to connect with people over time.
A thought leader in the motivational category, Joel Green has a B.A. in Psychology from Rider University, which has helped to fuel his ambition to inspire others. He has developed a reputation for personal excellence and motivational talks that contribute tangible advice for attaining desired goals. Many of the messages he has delivered are conveyed in his first book, Filtering: The Way to Extract Strength from the Struggle.
In this episode, we discuss Joel's journey to date including the life of a professional athlete, what people on the outside don't see, and touch upon his first book which has helped inspire thousands around the globe.
