Coach Jackson’s background is interesting, and he gets into it during the episode as he talks about being a former student athlete and transitioning to an entrepreneur and Coach. Throughout the years I’ve heard my athletes athletes talk of their aspirations in this same professional direction (entrepreneurship and coaching), so I’m thrilled to bring on someone who is seeing such success in this arena.
As a former student athlete myself, it was important for me to have role models as examples of what I was aspiring to be. I believe if we have more teachers, coaches, and instructors like Coach Jackson working with our student athletes, we can create a more positive environment for the betterment of society at large. Coach Jackson’s caring and compassionate approach to working with student athletes has made a huge impact on them and the generations to come. I hope when you listen to this episode, you’ll come away with one thing you can add to your teaching or coaching repertoire to make a more positive outcome for you and for those young people you work with.
