When the Lights Go Out: An Athlete’s Imminent Ambiguity. Being an athlete is one of the most unique experiences and lifestyles that anyone can have. From a young age athletes who can make it to the college and even professional ranks in their sport may not know any other life besides training and working on their craft. The majority of these athletes have dedicated their lives to their sport from their childhood up through college when they are 23-years-old or after their professional career when they can be well into their 30s or even 40s. The transition for these types of athletes is not an easy one. From working on being the best they can be in their sport to having a completely different venture in life is challenging and these former athletes may need guidance. Zachary Hoffman is a former professional American football player and coach who has now taken on a new passion for helping former athletes with this difficult transition that he went through himself. The company and brand he built to help these former athletes is called SWALEADERSHIP LLC, and the main goal of this company is to help retired, current, and other athletes who were not able to go professional or who have retired from their professional careers make the next transition in life.
As a former athlete Hoffman knows how hard it can be to make the transition from a former athlete into any other venture or stage in their life. The ultimate goal of Hoffman with SWALEADERSHIP is to assist others in the same journey that he had to personally go through after his athletic career.
Zachary Hoffman and SWALEADERSHIP LLC is not only a company that helps former athletes with this transition from football and other American sports though. The unique background of Hoffman gives him a broad outlook in life as he has been coaching and leading not just in the United States and in football, but in multiple countries across the world as well. He brings over 10 years of international experience in six different countries that is applicable to anyone who comes from various different backgrounds. Anyone who is looking to transform their life or view it from a different perspective could benefit from either what this company has to offer or from the award-winning SWALEADERSHIP book.
The book and company’s goal isn’t a get rich quick program or even a program that tries to get others to change what they have known their whole life up to this point. The goal of SWALEADERSHIP and Hoffman is to give people the tools to find a way to a fulfilling life after sports. It can be a daunting and hard journey at times. The goal is to turn those skills that athletes and others have been building their entire life to put them to use in life after sports. Leadership in sports can be directly translatable to other areas in life. It is Hoffman’s and SWALEADERSHIP’s mission to be able to unlock that in former athletes so they can succeed in their present and future endeavors whatever that may be.
