David Meltzer is the former CEO of Leigh Steinberg Sports and now the current CEO of Sports 1 Marketing, which he founded with Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon. He's a gigantic public speaker and a humanitarian. He's a truly wonderful human being. I met him a couple of years ago when I shot an episode of Elevator Pitch, and we just totally connected. I actually did his podcast that day. And we were sitting there going on and on and on, like diving in, realizing how much we had in common and how our beliefs were so in line with each other. We were just in our own little zone and we're getting yelled at to hurry up and wrap it up as it had been like 30 minutes. And I kept telling everyone to go away because we were having such a good time! So it was really nice to have seventy-five minutes to really dive into these topics and things that inspire both of us. And stories of where we came from and what made us who we are today. And then also what inspires us moving forward. And how to craft your life, how to create a foundation that launches you into a life that you truly want, as opposed to just chasing something that is either never going to fulfill you because it's from the ego or maybe, let's just say, it's just money, which was once his goal. And guess what? If you want to make money, you will. But then what do you want to do after that? It’s about creating foundational, fundamental goals and principles that are going to fuel you for life. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
