Wow, this was one of my favorite episodes of all time to record. I had the great honor of speaking with Chris Paul also known as “The Point God” on the Phoenix Suns NBA team.

Whether you are in college dreaming about your future career, in high school wanting to play on the varsity team, or you’re at your day job thinking about the business you want to create... this is an extremely important episode to listen to.

We learn in this episode about how Chris studies the game of basketball, and how he preps for each game. The patterns that Chris studies can be easily applied to your everyday life!

On a more personal note, Chris came with such great vulnerability and openness. He shares the challenges and trajectories that he has overcome with grace and forgiveness.

Is there anything that Chris is not confident about?

How do you share challenging news to your children or loved ones?

Most pivotal to his life, He shares with us his experience of the tragic loss of the closest person to him, his grandfather.
