Off the Beaten Path is continuing through the summer!
On the last Thursday of the month, you will hear a story about a woman who works in sports. The best part, she’s not only a part of the organization...she created it!
I can’t wait for you to hear from our latest Off The Beaten Path guest, Laura Dixon, Founder and President of the Pro Sports Assembly. I’m not going to lie, I was mad at her for not creating this when I was working for a sports team. It’s an incredible resource for the sports industry!
Listen in while Laura and I talk about:
-Why she always felt like she was off the beaten path
-Her approach to creating Pro Sports Assembly
-How she turned fear into a motivator
-Her experience with asking and securing funding
-How the Pro Sports Assembly can support you
-What she means when she says she can sometimes have stupid confidence
