Get ready for an epic podcast! Our guest today is Jimmy Farris, who is somebody everyone should know! Jimmy is an ex NFL Wide Receiver, later ran for office as a Democrat in Idaho, and also has a book called ‘Be A Pro.’ Jimmy is a great person, a common sense classic liberal, and can debate anybody for hours, which he proved in today’s podcast!

In his own words:

In 2001, I signed my first NFL contract with the San Francisco 49ers and achieved a goal I set for myself when I was 10 years old. I spent the next 7 years in the NFL, won a Super Bowl with the Patriots, and lived my dream. And then at the age of 30… it was over.

For the next several years, I struggled to find myself again. Can you relate?
I was unsure …. Who was I without football? What was I passionate about? What could I offer the world? How could I make an impact?

I realized that all of those years spent pursuing… realizing… and living the dream of playing Pro Football taught me some incredibly valuable lessons.
Lessons about what it takes to be a high performer, how to consistently be your best, how to come back from failure, and how to become the absolute best version of yourself. I want to share that information with the world and that is why I created Be A Pro.

My team and I are on a mission to help YOU get better and get more of the things you want in life. I want to teach you how to become the best version of yourself and realize more success, happiness, achievement, and fulfillment.
