    Joel Green #1024

    An inspiring deep dive with former professional basketball player and current motivational speaker, Joel Green (also find him on Instagram!). We cover a lot of ground here from the NBA finals to the transformative power of meditation. Joel is definitely a light in the world who is making an impact on a lot of the lives he touches.



    Joel Green is CEO of Pro Level Training, the National Director of Nike Sports Camps, a former professional basketball player, and a renowned motivational speaker. After retiring from his career in professional basketball, Joel Green founded Pro Level Training (PLT), which has become a 7-figure company. In addition to running PLT, Green is also the National Director for Nike Sports Camps as well as an accomplished speaker. He was honored to speak to thousands and deliver his own TED Talk.



    Joel Green’s unique differentiator in business and as an individual, is his ability to see life objectively from multiple vantage points. Unfortunate circumstances as a youth helped to groom and refine Joel into adulthood. Growing up in an abandoned home and seeing both sides of life has really helped him to connect with people over time.



    A thought leader in the motivational category, Joel Green has a B.A. in Psychology from Rider University, which has helped to fuel his ambition to inspire others. He has developed a reputation for personal excellence and motivational talks that contribute tangible advice for attaining desired goals. Many of the messages he has delivered on are conveyed in his first book, Filtering: The Way to Extract Strength from the Struggle, due to release this fall.



    In addition, Green is a professional sports and fitness model and actor, and he 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.



    Green is known for setting very ambitious goals for himself, most recently his own challenge of reading 30 books in 30 weeks. He has unflinchingly put in 18-20-hour workdays with great joy to make his dreams a physical manifestation. He attributes his work ethic to his unwavering faith and his passionate desire for excellence – both of which have allowed him to overcome many difficulties and life challenges.

    The brilliant and inspiring Heidi Campbell returns to discuss her run for the United States Congress in the state of Tennessee. We also discuss a wide variety of issues from gun violence to the environmental challenges we face. Please listen and support my incredible friend in her quest to serve the greater good and the people of her state.



    Tennessee state Senator Heidi Campbell is a Nashville native, a Mom, a former music industry executive and was the first female Mayor of the city of Oak Hill.

Her group was successful in preventing the project, and she decided to run for office. She was elected Vice Mayor and served on the planning commission. Then subsequently, she was elected Mayor and served two terms prior to winning a seat in the Tennessee Senate



    Her areas of focus include fiscal accountability, business, the environment, education, and social health. In the state Senate her trademark is bringing compassionate and data-based leadership to the legislature. Senator Campbell is the Chair of the Davidson County Legislative Delegation and also serves on the Fiscal Review, Tennessee Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations (TACIR), Agriculture, Energy, and Environment, Government Operations committees of the Tennessee General Assembly, and the Environment Committee for the Southern Legislative Conference.



    Her family lives in Nashville. Her father is a renowned cardiologist, and her mother is a former nurse, teacher actress and poet. Her sister is a doctor and a science teacher, and her brother is a urologist. She lives near Radnor Lake with her husband Andrew, her two children, and a few Goldendoodles.
