Success is a Choice

May 27, 2023

Today's episode is a replay of one of our more popular episodes. We wanted to re-release it since we interviewed Oxford HS Football Coach and former NFL Fullback Zach Line this week. It's well worth the six minutes of your time. As a side note, if you haven't listened to that interview with Zach we highly recommend it (released on May 25, 2023).
