Listen to Episode

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be replaying some of my favorite episodes from 2020. I hope you enjoy these episodes and Happy New Year!

My guest this week is Isaac Bruce. Isaac was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2020. Isaac played college football for the University of Memphis and was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the 2nd round and had a 14-year career with the Rams. Isaac was known for his work ethic.

This episode is for you if you want to learn more about:  

  • How those closest to you notice your gifts
  • The Ups and Downs of the ride
  • Copying other’s moves and making them work for you
  • Embracing your gifts and putting in the work
  • Transitioning to a new chapter of life
  • And more!
