Episode #74: On Location: The Legacy You Leave
(12-12-17)


It’s our first episode ever recorded outside.  Recruiting expert Jon Fugler reports from San Diego Bay.  Specifically, he is standing on a pier in the part of the bay where the America’s Cup was held in the early 1980’s.

It’s not a coincidence that Jon is recording on that spot.  This time of year, we start reflecting on the past 12 months and look to the next 12.

So Jon’s challenging message to parents and athletes is about “legacy.”  And in San Diego Bay, a legacy was established during the America’s Cup.

This episode is not about sailing.  It’s about you.  Is your legacy all about sports and a scholarship?  If so, that’s short-sighted.  Jon has some things to say that he hopes will encourage some rich parent-athlete conversation.

Jon steps up with this statement: “A legacy shouldn’t be something embedded in that past but something that impacts the future.”

We will all leave a legacy. What will yours look like?
