Bill Mayew: Why Athletes Often Make the Best Teachers and Coaches - Life After Sports

My guest is Bill Mayew, a former UNC-Wilmington basketball standout who is now Professor of Accounting at Duke's Fuqua School of Business. Bill's story is especially powerful for two reasons: (1) He did something that most athletes don't do - he pursued an advanced degree and works in the most rigorous academic research; and (2) He says that sports prepared him for that path.   In Today's Episode: See a day in the life of a university professor - see what it's like to get paid to research topics you're passionate about. Discover how to communicate the value of "stress-testedness" to future employers. Learn why former athletes so often make excellent teachers and coaches.   Show Notes   Connect With Us Twitter Instagram   Recommend A Former Athlete Know a former athlete who's doing big things in life after sports?
