#1231: Walking On D1 Basketball And Becoming a Pro Basketball Agent With Kevin Tarca (@KevinTarca)

Work On Your Game with Dre Baldwin

Work On Your Game: 1) The Discipline to show up day after day to do the work. 2) The Confidence to put yourself out there -- boldly and authentically. 3)The Mental Toughness to continue showing up and putting yourself out there, even when the success you've expected hasn't yet happened. 4)The Personal Initiative to become a go-getter and make things happen instead of waiting for things to happen. Dre Baldwin is a 9-year professional basketball player, author and entrepreneur teaching the Mental Game tools that Dre had to develop in his basketball career and in pioneering new genres of athlete personal branding online dating back to 2005. On a daily basis, Dre explains how these tools apply to business, sports and life. Drawing on his professional career, 15+ years building his brand [including 4 TED Talks, 7,000+ YouTube videos, 25 books, speaking & consulting business] and the millions of comments, emails, and DMs he's received over the years, Dre gives you exactly what you need to be who you need to be to do what you need to do -- and nothing which you don't need.
