Throughout the past few years, I’ve made a transition in my career, starting in law and politics, then working for myself.

5 Ways Athletes (and anyone else) Can Connect Their Mental and Physical Self

Everything we do, sports included, is 90% mental. In fact, saying that sports is 90% mental might be one of the most overused clichés.
