“I knew that if I didn’t get in front of it from a positive perspective, we would have went down that rabbit hole of despair and depression.” – Marty McNair

 

Today’s featured author is father, thought leader, motivational speaker, advocate, and founder of The Jordan McNair Foundation, Marty McNair. Marty and I talk about his 1st book, how he became an advocate for student-athletes, and more!
