Today our expert guest is Molly Fletcher, who was hailed as the “female Jerry Maguire” by CNN. Molly inspires audiences around the world as a keynote speaker, drawing on success stories from her former life as a sports agent and sharing lessons that she learned from those at the top of their game.

One of the most important lessons that Molly learned from working with peak performers is that they lean into discomfort – they embrace it, and they recognize that on the other side of discomfort is growth.

When Molly first became a sports agent, she was the only female sports agent… so there were a number of obstacles between her and the incredible success she achieved (she successfully negotiated over $500 million in contracts).

It’s all about how you think about the obstacles along your journey – are they actually obstacles, or are they opportunities?

Molly had to shift her mindset, look at things differently, and celebrate the fact that she was different. It was a gift that athletes remembered her when they were on the range; it was a gift that they had her back when she was behind the dugout; it was a gift that she was able to connect with and serve not only the men she represented, but also their wives.
