In this episode, it is my honor to be joined by former Olympian, and current Director of Marketing for Momentous Sara Hendershot.
This episode is especially unique since we get the perspective of what constitutes truly effective coaching from a world-class athlete who has competed at the absolute highest levels in sport. Sara also dives into the strategies she deployed to help keep her at the top of her performance while competing as well as during her transition into the business world.
A truly eloquent speaker, and someone who understands the true value and meaning of the term "core product" Sara discloses a deluge of helpful and insightful information as to how the small things done savagely well will provide maximum ROI in the long-run, especially as it pertains to the current and ever-evolving landscape of performance nutrition.
