Athletes in Business
Oo Ab 109 Ab The business magazine Portfolio recently launched "Back to Back," an online video series featuring professional advice from famous athletes who successfully made the transition from playing sports to running a business. The series debuted with skateboarder-turned-entrepreneur Tony Hawk, who in a series of one-on-one interviews explains the importance of authenticity in marketing and how to recognize and acknowledge failure. Other multiple two- and three-minute segments feature speedskater Eric Heiden, football player Jerry Rice, figure skater Peggy Fleming and gymnast Cathy Rigby discussing changing careers, learning new skills, leveraging celebrity and discovering unexpected parallels between life on the field and in the office. Expertly filmed and easily organized, these videos reveal people who may actually be more similar to the rest of us than we think.
