Extraordinary Happens Podcast
I started a new podcast series Extraordinary Happens to share the inspiring stories behind the people leading change in sports business today. They are stories of people finding opportunity among conflict, pushing the envelope during uncertainty and trailblazing to break through and make extraordinary things happen. MLS Commissioner Don Garber shares his inspiring journey of leaving the NFL to join MLS at a time when soccer was struggling in America. He came in with big aspirations and 17 years later, he’s completely reshaped the sport of soccer in this country. He’s growing the league, building infrastructure, creating new generations of players, and focusing on important relationships with teams and their communities.
The Commissioner’s story is extraordinary and one that’s filled with valuable lessons for all professionals.
