Identity and Career


Building a career and identity outside of sport is crucial to prevent the major problems athletes can encounter when they retire. Having a dual career plan is not only wise, but it is also helpful to your performance. You are less likely to burn out if you have another project in your life that allows you to disconnect from the intensity of high-performance sport. Just focusing on your sport is a risky game. Here you will find resources, articles and links to all things career and Identity related.
