Hey everybody, I’m Brian Clapp, VP of Content and Engaged Learning at WorkInSports.com and this is the Work In Sports podcast.
In January of 2020, which feels like 10 years ago, I had a plan to double up our podcast episodes for the month.
January is a big month for WorkInSports.com – so many people coming to our site looking for a new opportunity to gain sports employment and follow their dreams. January is a month so many of us say — I’m going for it! I want to lose weight, I want a new career, I want to make more time for myself… it is the month of affirmations.
The thought was, let’s capitalize on that attention — let’s get everyone feeling motivated and ready to conquer the sports world with a double dose of top podcast guests.
So I built a target list and started aggressively reaching out to guests I thought wouldbe great to kick off the year.
My first goal was to book Hannah Huesman, someone I had really grown to admire in the world of sports mental performance training.
Hannah is so motivating — she posts 1-minute clips on her social media channels every Monday called Mental Sweat Monday, where she gives her listeners actionable tips to improve their mental performance, AND she works for the Philadelphia Phillies traveling to all of their minor league teams and helping their players become their best.
She said yes almost immediately. We conducted the interview…and I was so so so excited. Hannah is awesome. She explained how she got into sports mental performance, so it’s interesting from a career standpoint, but she also shared her background as a student-athlete, and gave incredible tips on how we can all improve. I mean come on?!
Last week was stressful. Between the election and increasing casualties and sickness from the global pandemic we are still facing, this felt like the right time to bring back some positivity.
Hannah has a plan, listen in.
