Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Anything is possible when you let no one outwork you.  That’s the mantra of Isaiah Kacyvenski. This episode is  testament to the power of relentless determination. Growing up with a difficult childhood in poverty and bouts of homelessness - it was his dedication to studies, reading six hours every Sunday, and focusing on the words he taped to his ceiling “let no one outwork you today,” that led Isaiah to eight years in the NFL. 6 years with the Seattle Seahawks, and then the St. Luis Rams and Oakland Raiders.  But why stop there, next he won his MBA from Harvard business school and then on to success in venture capital. This is a story worth hearing. Hold yourself accountable for your own destiny !
