As some of you know, we are merging the podcasts. Life Beyond the Game and Quantum Coffee are now one! And I could think of no better guest to begin this journey with than Jake Plummer! Jake is someone I looked up to as a kid when I dreamed of playing in the NFL, and it’s so cool how similar our paths are now. In this episode, Jake and I dive deep into the transition out of professional sports and how we can find purpose and meaning by embracing the uncomfortable situations and stepping into who we truly are. We also discuss the process of deprogramming and how tools like meditation and plant medicine have changed the way Jake approaches his life. There’s so much gold in this one… Enjoy!
