In today’s episode, I sat down to talk with Alex Smagala, a former D1 baseball player turned entrepreneur to discuss his athletic journey and how, after a career-ending injury, he shifted his mindset to focus on life after sports.

Alex is passionate about helping financial advisors understand how specialized mortgage products can help their clients expand their options in retirement and he is a great example of finding something you believe in after sports that allows you to have control over your lifestyle.

His advice for current and former athletes is:

1)      Hard work can take you to heights you never imagined.

2)      A growth mindset is key in all aspects of life, you should always be learning.

3)      Network, Network, Network. Who you know not what you know rings true in life.
