Modern culture wires us to take the easy way, to believe that huge gains can be achieved with little to no effort. But anyone who’s succeeded will tell you that’s simply not true. It never is.

Quentin Gause is one of those people. He was raised in a loving home and had the support system in his family to teach him the value of hard work and that hard work is required to get where you want to go. For Quentin, that destination was football.

Listen to hear how he overcame childhood learning difficulties, followed the example of his Dad and Uncle in building habits that set him up for success, and pursued and attained his dream of an NFL football career. Learn how Quentin played for the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, and Denver Broncos, and then made a pivot into the entrepreneurial world.
