Why You Should Compete as an Adult

his past Thursday night, I presented a talk at Ignite Minneapolis 7 entitled “Why You Should Compete as an Adult“.

In just five short minutes and with only 20 slides, I told a packed house of 700 attendees at the Riverview Theater my story and the lessons I’ve learned this past year about how competing in sports as an adult can bring about great change in your life.

While it was nerve racking to get up on stage and speak in front of so many people, I had a great group of friends in the audience cheering me on and many more who sent me messages of support that day.

Overall, it was an amazing experience, though truthfully it was a bit of a blur. After I finished, I couldn’t remember exactly what I said and had no gauge of how it went. But as I say in my talk, life isn’t as fulfilling if you never take any risks. Check out the video and leave your thoughts in the comments section below:
