MOTM #066: An Unconventional Approach to Being an Athletic Trainer with Dr. Ethan Kreiswirth

Monday, November 19th, 2018

Things aren't always as they seem, and for the motivated, they wouldn't have it any other way. Tune in this week as I chat with my good friend Ethan Kreiswirth, and hear how he went from being a college dropout to getting his PhD, owning his own Athletic Training Services company, and serving as both Director of Education for RockTape, and program director at Rocky Mountain University. If you're an ATC, this episode is ABSOLUTELY for you. If you believe that your future is not dictated by your degree, this episode is ABSOLUTELY for you. If you want to learn more about the RockTape paradigm, this episode is ABSOLUTELY for you. If you believe in creating a life that also allows you to live, this episode is ABSOLUTELY for you. And if you don't fit into any of those boxes, well then this episode, which is all about thinking outside of the box, is ABSOLUTELY, 100% for you.
