If you were to ask most individuals, what they would change about their current condition in life. You might expect to be overwhelmed by a tsunami of answers so massive that it could convert the Atacama Desert, the driest places on earth, to an ocean retreat. Toughest thing about change, for most, is the willingness to confront one's self and to take the first step in changing the rest of their lives. Either you're part of the problem or you're part of the solution, the choice is always yours. On today's show we sit down with former New York Jets safety, Victor Green, who tells us what hurdles he was forced to overcome during his 10 seasons in the NFL and how the lessons learned still hold true today. As a former NFL Scout, Victor also puts on his future "GM hat" and gives us his Secondary Perspective on the personnel decisions of the New York Jets. For those looking for extra motivation to kick start the next phase of your life and career, we have that covered too. Wellness and Healthy Eating Coach, Gina Ramos, discusses what made her decide after 23 years to shed her 310 pound body. You don't want to miss the powerful yet simple tips she provides that will assist you with your health goals.

Growing up in the inner city of Miami has presented me with many obstacles to overcome. No matter how bleak things might have looked or what odds might have been stacked against me, I never stop fighting for what I want. I went from a college walk-on at Morris Brown College to a scholarship student-athlete at Georgia Tech. It was imperative for me to display my athletic abilities on a larger platform. This mindset has pushed me to chase my dream over 3 continents by way of the CFL, NFL Europe and finally the NFL. I took that same approach to my education when I gave up a $50,000 work-out bonus to return to Georgia Tech and earn my undergraduate degree in Business. I was presented with an award from the NFL because of my scholastic achievements. As an undrafted player in the NFL I’ve seen my fair share of highs and lows in my 10 year career. The knowledge gained on and off the field has led to my continued work as a Sports Analyst. I can recreate the passion I had on the field as an analyst to help undrafted players find success in the NFL. Maintaining the proper attitude with perseverance has allowed me to continue my pursuit for perfection as I embark on what is sure to be a great 2nd career.
I continue to use my celebrity to bring awareness to outside causes and community organizations. This allows me to mentor future leaders of tomorrow, aspiring athletes and help troubled youth. Nothing is better than knowing that you’ve had a major impact on someone else’s life.
