    College athletes have recently asked me "what do you wish you would have known (and done) while in college?" In order to be better prepared for those conversations, I realized I had a few regrets (primarily for not taking action when I had the chance). My goal was to make sure the people I met with knew this so perhaps they wouldn't make the same mistakes.  

    While the advice was originally meant for college athletes, I quickly learned that it could apply to anyone. Here they are:

    • Learn to speak in front of people
    • Learn how to sell
    • Write great papers
    • Seek out mentors
    • Develop curiosity
    • Visit your professors
    • Build real friendships with your teammates
    • Be smart on social media
    • Be known as someone who speaks positively behind someone's back
    • Remember your fundamentals 
    • Focus on continual improvement
