Being a great athlete takes time, determination, and persistence. I got to the highest level, but then my road ended. Now,as an ex-athlete, it can be hard to find a job that is looking for experience when your sport was your life. I have spoken with many successful athletes who are now successful in the workplace. I have learned how to sell yourself to a job that you want and say the right trigger words during an interview to impress the manager in every industry.
