The Optimal Life with Nate Haber

Inspirational conversations with extraordinary people.

Dec 17, 2017

Chris 'Beanie' Wells is a former Ohio State all-American running back who went on to become a first round draft pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2009.  After a breakout campaign in his third NFL season in which he rushed for over 1,000 yards and ten touchdowns, his following season - and ultimately career - was cut short due to injuries. 

In this episode, we talk about the path from high school to college and ultimately to the NFL.  We dig into the challenges of being a star player at a major university and the mindset required to achieve elite success.  We end with a discussion on the difficulties to transition from professional sports life to real world life, and what former players must do in order to avoid an 'identity crisis.'  From the Playboy Mansion to Ohio State and everything else in between, you won't want to miss this intimate conversation with Beanie Wells.
