Show Notes

"If you have a good relationship going into trying to create something, it's a lot smoother when everyone is communicating in the same language and is on the same page." - 3:38

"I wanted to know without a doubt that when I have numbers in front of me, is the dataset I'm working with valid, is it reliable? Am I collecting good data?" - 7:07

"Everything always goes back to people and relationships, whether we are talking coaching or life." - 9:30

"The more you can understand people, the more you understand a situation." - 10:06

"I never had a bad day in terms of what my outlook was, and that was surely because of my support circle... When you have really strong people in your circle ... you can handle stuff." - 22:19

"You talk about a saturated field and market ... there are plenty of people standing in line to take that $30,000 entry-level job. Why is it still $30,000? Our value with a Master's Degree, experience, certification, whatever that may be, it has to be a higher minimum." - 25:10

"You have to find value outside of your job. And don't feel ashamed for it." - 29:58

"You're not winning as a strength coach by having the most hours in the weight room. You're losing." - 30:04
