#49 Nathan Adrian: Passion Project


Learn why Nathan calls Swimming his, "Passion Project" and what he's planning for his next big challenge in this authentic and thoughtful interview. Earning 5 Olympic Golds and 27 Golds in International Competition, Nathan  is referred to by many as the Sprinting G.O.A.T.   We visit with Nathan  at the one year mark since returning to the pool, after surgery and treatment for testicular cancer. Nathan shares what he's learned, how he applied statistics and probabilities he learned in swimming to his recovery and how he's used marginal improvement to help guide his success. We guarantee you'll be  inspired. Photo credit and courtesy Fernando Llano. 

#50 Love & Performance w/ Caroline Miller


Can positive emotions like Love improve your performance? What an appropriate topic for the week of Valentines: Love and Performance!

It seems that when we connect to powerful positive emotions we can perform better! And we are so fortunate today to have an expert on Positive Psychology, International best selling Author, International Speaker and a Champion herself, our friend and back by popular demand.
