Sika Henry

A chance observation by a coach, of Sika on a Basket Ball, led to her now being on a quest to become the first African American Female Pro Triathlete. What drives a person to take the long route to finish a marathon?

Triathletes are focused driven high performing competitive individuals. I'm curious about the discipline required to train and compete, correctly how those principles transfer to real-life scenarios.

Some people are driven by internal motivation, while others require hand-holding and external motivation to get them moving. I'm going to go out on a limb and say Sika isn't externally motivated. She set some pretty audacious goals; it was en route to accomplishing her dream of obtaining her Pro Card that she suffered a horrific accident.

What do you when life punches you in the face? Do you hang up your helmet or go back to the drawing board? What sustains you during the trial? I had questions, Sika served up the answers.

If you haven't already done so leave us review on Apple Podcast, oh yeah I haven't mentioned my Ko-fi page, I almost forgot.  The launching of my Ko-fi page is me embracing my talents, this is me walking in my purpose, this is me taking the leap, acknowledging that what I'm doing is providing a valuable service for the audience, the guest and the sponsors.  BTW Podcast is a business.

I took the leap 4 years ago to drive for Uber/Lyft Full-time, so I'd have the flexibility to devote to building BTW Podcast.  Ko-fi is platform that will allow entrepreneurs/business owners to sponsor an episode PRE, MID or POST roll, it also allows you to buy me a cup of coffee.

Thanks for accompanying my on this ride.  Leave a voicemail to let us know how we're doing and receive a shout out in a future episode.
