This week, I speak with Emmanuel "Manny" Logan Greene, a college football athlete and one of my coaching clients. Our story began when Emmanuel cold-called me to sponsor him by trading massage services for endorsement. Initially, I told him no, but after reflecting on his purpose and tenacity, we came to an agreement and we've been working together ever since.

In this podcast, we discuss what dedications means to an athlete trying to "hone their craft" and what giving back looks like through dedication and philanthropy. 

Manny and I have discussed so many things. But when you boil it down, he strives for a 4 point approach to success:

  1. Believe in yourself - the first person who has to back you up is you. You can achieve great things if you begin believing that you are capable.  
  2. Work Hard - You have to put in the work. Whether you are staying in shape or texting people, you have to work on your success. That means networking, staying top of mind and keeping ahead of deadline.
  3. Hone your craft - Be prepared for what you want. If you are going after a scholarship, you better be in shape and ready to compete. 
  4. Visualize - See yourself communicating with your opponent. See yourself performing. See what it looks like first in your head to be ready for what is coming for real.
