My athletic experiences taught me that you can do anything you set your mind to. It developed a dedicated work ethic in me to accomplish whatever goals I set for myself, individually, or my team. The experiences taught how to deal with adversity. Athletics tested my perseverance. These contributed directly to my sales and business career. Athletics taught me invaluable lessons on the development of teamwork and leadership. I am 100% devoted to the lessons organized sports teaches us in regards to life lessons.
