Joel Green Reveals How To Extract Strength From The Struggle

Today we have Joel Green to talk with us about “filtering”, managing your mindset, using your painful experiences to push yourself, and so much more.

Joel Green is CEO of Pro Level Training, the National Director of Nike Sports Camps, a former professional basketball player, and a renowned motivational speaker. After retiring from his career in professional basketball, Joel Green founded Pro Level Training (PLT), which has become a 7-figure company. 

In addition, Joel Green is the National Director for Nike Sports Camps as well as an accomplished speaker. He was honored to speak to thousands and deliver his own TED Talk. His unique differentiator in business and as an individual, is his ability to see life objectively from multiple vantage points. 

Unfortunate circumstances as a youth helped to groom and refine Joel into adulthood. Growing up in an abandoned home and seeing both sides of life has really helped him to connect with people over time. 

Green’s messages deliver tangible advice for others to attain their desired outcome, many of these messages will be conveyed in his first book to be released in the fall. Joel Green has a B.A. in Psychology from Rider University, which has helped to fuel his ambition to inspire others. In addition, he is a professional sports and fitness model and actor and has been featured in commercials, ads, and television. 

Recently, he was the face of Cheez-It crackers Celebrity Crunch Classic campaign, in which he was solely featured on millions of snack boxes. 

Green has unflinchingly put in 18–20-hour workdays with unrelenting joy to make his dreams a physical manifestation. He attributes his work ethic and success to his unwavering faith in God and desire for excellence.
