    204. How Money & Mania are Ruining Kids' Sports with Linda Flanagan

    204. How Money & Mania are Ruining Kids' Sports with Linda Flanagan

    On today's episode, I sat down with Linda Flanagan who is the author of the new book "Take Back the Game - How Money and Mania are Ruining Kids' Sports". This conversation may be one of the most important conversations that we've ever had on the podcast as youth sports has taken a dramatic downward turn over the last few decades.

    In this conversation we discuss:


    How competitive youth sports affect family dynamics
    The role money plays in perpetuating the problem
    How parents are being manipulated by sports corporations
    The importance of letting your kids lead and play without supervision
    Why parents need to get their own life instead of being so heavily invested in their kids' sports
    and so much more!

    200. The Confidence Journey of an Olympic Athlete with Rachael Adams , USA Volleyball

    Today is episode 200 and we’ve got a special treat for you to celebrate! On today’s episode I sat down with Rachael Adams, who is an olympic medalist for USA Volleyball, and a mindset and confidence mentor to female athletes.

    Rachael’s journey to becoming an olympic athlete and playing on the world’s biggest stage, wasn’t super conventional… She didn’t start playing volleyball until she was a freshman in high school! But along the way, like all of us, she had ups and downs and ultimately was able to achieve greatness by tapping into the power of the mind!

    In this episode we talked about:



    Her journey to becoming an olympic athlete



    The importance of building self awareness in order to improve



    How Rachael used self-talk to catapult her confidence



    How she handled pressure during the olympics



    Her new mentorship program for female athletes
