BHP 053: Ex-NFL Player Dale Moss | Leading and Giving Back

We’re back, and we’re kicking off the 2019 episodes of the Better Human Project podcast with retired NFL player, model, and entertainer/host Dale Moss.

Post football, Dale is focused on working with the NFL Players Association to help both former and current players, bridging the gap between generations of NFL-ers, and serving as a Global Ambassador for the Special Olympics – even lobbying on Capitol Hill on their behalf to raise awareness and resources.

4 Takeaways From This Episode:

  1. Focus on relationships.

  2. Be real.

  3. Nothing lasts forever. Plan ahead.

  4. Having the opportunity to help someone else achieve their dream can be more powerful than achieving your own.

Dale is a phenomenal human and we’re pumped to kick off 2019 with this episode. Enjoy:
