This week we have my friend Nick Hardwick on the podcast!
Nick is truly one of the most amazing men that I have come in contact with. We have so much in common and are so aligned in our mission. Nick played center for the San Diego Charger for 11 years and he is someone I looked up to during my playing days. He has some incredible stories about his athletic journey and how he has navigated life since retirement. I know you’re going to love this one!
