Transitioning Into Life After Sports with Taj Dashaun

Taj Dashaun is an athlete, husband, motivational speaker, podcast host, and the Vice President of Self-Publish in 30 days. He authored four excellent books, including Thrive after Sports and Athletes Entrepreneur, which seeks to help readers have a clear direction of where they want to go and work for their dreams with all diligence. Taj is a professional career coach who works with athletes transitioning into life after sports. Not only does he help athletes land jobs and start businesses, but he also helps them find fulfillment in every single area of their lives. His mission and passion are to reach out and help others overcome the fear, frustration, and uncertainty associated with life post-athletics.

In this special episode with Taj Dashaun, we'll learn about the journey of a man who almost lost himself in the sludge after encountering rejections and disappointments in life as an athlete. However, after several years of stumbling around in the emotional darkness of uncertainty, he began to take his eyes off of himself and focus on serving others. Today, he is inspiring our present generation with his journey. He also runs an intensive program for retired athletes struggling to adapt to life after sports.
