Martellus Bennett, a Super Bowl Champion, told me that he never really viewed himself as a football player. Rather, Marty's the co-founder and creative director of The Imagination Agency -- a multi-media platform that's focused on telling African American children stories.
On the show, we discuss crossover skills from football to entrepreneurship -- highlighting hard work, curiosity, passion, and even selfishness. We also remember the highs and lows of his NFL career -- from his support of Colin Kaepernick that led to a terrible racial response in Green Bay, to the most memorable moment of his career: when the Patriots were down 28-3 at halftime of the Super Bowl and came back to win.
Hope you enjoy the show!
