This week we have Obafemi Ayanbadejo on the show! Obafemi is a former NFL running back, fullback and special teams player. He was signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 1997. He is also the founder of Health Reel, NASA Technology partner, a human performance expert, and a certified nutritionist.

In this episode, Femi and I dive into his long NFL career and how he used discipline and hard work to find success at the highest level. We also get into Obafemi’s transition out of the league and how he has used the discipline and self awareness that he cultivated in the league to reinvent himself and build a career in technology and human optimization. Obafemi is an amazing example of someone who has been able to consciously transition and find purpose and meaning outside of professional sports. I know you’re going to love this one!
