One of the greatest basketball players of all time with a seemingly endless slew of astonishing accolades, today’s guest needs no introduction.
But for those few off-grid souls who somehow are unaware of this NBA legend, Chris Paul’s athletic impact is nothing short of extraordinary.
He’s a 2-time Olympic gold medalist. NBA Rookie of the Year. A 12-time NBA All-Star, an All-Star Game MVP, and the first player in league history to record 20,000 points and 10,000 assists in their career.
But beyond the court, Chris is more than just a basketball phenom. He’s a devoted father, husband, entrepreneur, activist, and philanthropist. In 2018 Chris adopted a plant-based diet and after experiencing enhanced performance, has used his platform and resources to advocate for nutrition education & improved access to healthy food for the underprivileged.
He can also now add author to his list of accomplishments. Hitting bookstores this week is his incredible memoir Sixty-One: Life Lessons from Papa, On and Off the Court which chronicles his life and the important role his grandfather played in molding him into the man he is today.
“Don’t fall in love with the showers of people telling you how great you are. Fall in love with the work, and everything else will follow.”
– CHRIS PAUL
Today we tap into the mind of a true icon in a revealing and powerful conversation about grit, commitment, and the hard-wrought journey to success.
In addition to discussing his new memoir, we talk about everything from the demands of mastery, how to sustain elite performance, the importance of mentorship, a strong work ethic, and the many ways Chris has leveraged his voice, platform, and resources for maximum social impact as an investor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist.
A pinch-me moment, it was an absolute pleasure and honor to talk with a man I respect and admire tremendously.
