Today, I’m joined by the former NFL player and philanthropist Cory Redding.  

Cory is a giving guy with a big heart, and we have a great conversation about American football, the art of coaching, and the future of renewable energy.  

Cory also tells me all about his need to give back to the community and why he started his own foundation. 

A genuinely nice guy with a great attitude towards life, Cory has me laughing throughout as he shares great stories from his career and life.     

“The moment you stop asking why, that’s when you start to really age, and life begins to come short because you don’t want to learn anymore.” – Cory Redding
