Growing up small didn’t hold JJ Birden back from becoming a 9yr NFL veteran, including playing with the great Joe Montana. We chat his determination, turning obstacles into opportunities, seizing opportunities, as well as transitioning into life after pro sports.⁣

I was recently featured on the The Beautiful Minds Podcast, where I was able to share my story in snowboarding, dealing with injuries, competing in functional fitness, and starting my business!

I was recently featured on the Players Point Podcast, where I was able to share my story coming from snowboarding, transitioning away from being a full-time athlete, and how I used social media to build my personal brand in and out of sport.
