What piece of advice changed your life?
When I was young, my parents told me I could do whatever I wanted in life as long as I worked hard. I believed them. And, so far, that advice hasn’t proved wrong. I graduated from Yale, I played in the NFL, I have traveled the world, and I have a startup that I believe will help people change the way they take care of their bodies. None of it has been easy, but hard work has always won the day.
