Angelo Wright | Having a plan for success

Season 1, Ep. 5

In this episode Angelo Wright (my former agent) shares his insights about today's athlete and what roadblocks are ahead. Angelo has had many of uncomfortable conversations with his athletes (me included), but it was something that they needed to hear. Sometimes athletes' ability and ego (if left unchecked) can cause them to falter in their pursuit of perfection...they often need someone who gives them an unbiased opinion so they can see the blind spots of their personal and professional lives. Angelo provides that voice for his athletes...we can learn something from him.
