This week’s episode I recap my time at the pursuit financial summit during NBA all star weekend. What I learned from the summit and also observations from people such as Miko Grimes surrounding the all star weekend.
I also talk about Lebron James, All Star MVP and his mantra “More than an Athlete” in light of recent events due to his Uninterrupted X Uber collaboration with Kevin Durant.
Also talk about the NFLPA externship program and why it’s important for athletes to use these opportunities presented to them.
In addition I make some quick plugs on cool podcast to listen to as well as different athletes to follow on youtube. 5 YouTube professional athlete channels to follow Kevin Durant , Cedric Thompson, Matthew Sheldon, Quincy Amarikwa, & Paul Rabil
