Career Transitions: Stepping Away From Your Sport, Startup or the Front Line

Elite athletes. Founders. Military. Less than 0.1% of people make it to the top of these fields. So what happens when you reach the top, and then step away?

There is loss of identity, lack of community, feeling like you are no longer good at anything, missing the extreme emotional highs, and the pressure from everyone to decide what is next.

We all have career transitions. This is your chance to dive deep into the mindset of people who are navigating those transitions right now.
