Welcome to All Up in Your Business with Summer Sanders!
Join Olympic gold medalist and sports personality, Summer Sanders as we pull back the curtain on the secrets to what makes an elite athlete successful both on and off the field. We will be talking to athletes who have become business women, entrepreneurs and advocates. We will be asking ‘better questions’ to get the real story. The training, the adversity, the victories and the failures and most importantly, how have they now brought those skills to their life after sport. This podcast is for anyone who wants to be inspired to reach for more.
Episode 1 – Billie Jean King
In this episode, we sit down with tennis champion, Billie Jean King. Both on and off the court, Billie Jean has been a fierce advocate for gender equality in sport and continues to avidly campaign for girls’ rights to access sport. Our conversation reflects on Billie Jean’s 39 Grand Slam wins, how sport has shaped her personally and professionally, the future of the gender debate and her close friendship with Elton John.
We want to hear from you…
