This Season

We’re focusing on one theme: PEAK PERFORMANCE.

What does it take to achieve greatness? How do you maintain it? And how do you continually find opportunities to improve, in EVERY area of life?

This Episode

Abby Wambach is a soccer legend. She’s won two FIFA World Cups, two Olympic gold medals, and she currently holds the world record for all-time international goals scored – among men and women.

On top of that, she’s a fierce champion for equal pay, and a New York Times bestselling author, going viral with her book, “WOLFPACK.”

We’re trying something different with this episode: We’ve shared our usual 20-minutes focused on peak performance, but we also released Ric & Abby’s entire conversation (40 minutes), which includes how Abby’s fighting for equal pay, how she’s finding forgiveness through parenting, and much more.

Find both wherever you get podcasts, or listen below.
