    • Non-Profit

Being a professional athlete is a dream come true for many. But what happens if that dream ends abruptly or comes to its natural conclusion? Are athletes prepared for life after sport? In today’s episode with legendary WNBA all-star Alana Beard, Chinny and Emmett dive into what it takes to be a professional female athlete and how the women’s basketball game has changed over the years. From there, Chinny and Alana delve into the lack of equitable options for female athletes once their careers have come to end. There are really great lessons to be had from today’s conversation on equity and being your authentic self. We hope you enjoy it!
