429: Extracting Strength from the Struggle with Joel Green
What separates high achievers from those who struggle to get ahead?
Joel Green is a man who can tackle this question head on. A successful leader and a former professional basketball player, many would define him by his successes, but it’s what he did to achieve his success that he is most interested in sharing with others.
Joel is CEO of Pro Level Training, the National Director of Nike Sports Camps, and a renowned motivational speaker, having reached thousands of people through his TEDx Talk.
He is also a professional sports and fitness model and actor, and has been featured in commercials, ads and on television. Most recently he was the face of Cheez-It crackers Celebrity Crunch Classic campaign, in which he was solely featured on millions of snack boxes.
As a motivational speaker Joel’s unique differentiator is his ability to see life objectively from multiple vantage points. Unfortunate circumstances as a youth helped groom and refine Joel into adulthood. Growing up in an abandoned home in North Philadelphia and seeing both sides of life has allowed him to connect with many different people groups very powerfully.
Joel has a B.A. in Psychology from Rider University and just published his first book, Filtering: The Way to Extract Strength from the Struggle.
