Easy to apply

Amber Selking, I wish I had a fraction of her charisma. She is positive and insightful. Has a lot compelling brain data and wisdom to share to her sports groups as well as to regular people like me.

When I listen to her podcast I always feel encouraged to take that next concrete step toward personal growth. She makes her listeners feel understood (yep, life can be hard) and at the same time strong and gritty (but you have what it takes and can become the best version of yourself).

Definitely recommend!

Energy

Dr. Amber Selking offers such great energy. She is so passionate about sharing her knowledge and insights into building a championship mindset. I get fired up every time I listen! She obviously had a huge impact on the Irish this year. I saw her several times on the sidelines during the playoff game, she has definitely impacted their program. Thanks Dr. Selking!

Mapthinker ,

This is one extraordinary Podcast!

Amber’s energy is contagious! I had the pleasure to work with Amber early in her career. She was a creative and engaging colleague back then. Today, she is even more engaging! Once you start listening to this podcast, getting her insight and strategies on becoming better at whatever it is you do, I suspect you’ll find yourself coming back to the podcast for more. —Chance Brown
