Is it any surprise that Olympic athletes and successful entrepreneurs have more than just a few things in common? Kari Warberg Block, founder and CEO of EARTH-KIND, Inc., didn’t think so. After attending the 2016 Olympics in Rio, she shared the key takeaways that stuck with her.
“When we’re talking about world-class athletes or entrepreneurs, we’re talking about decades of good habits, practiced consistently. No shortcuts or excuses. Confidence comes from years of personal sacrifice to get to the top of your game. Athletes and entrepreneurs develop an inner resilience that somehow, they instinctively know that they’ll always find a way to show up strong, even when others are in disbelief, or far better equipped.”
