Podcast Episode 15: Desmond Clark, Author, Speaker, Co-Owner | The Insurance People
Updated: May 20
Desmond Clark – former Chicago Bear football player, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, financial advisor, philanthropist, and author of the new book Principles of Winning. Dez Clark has persevered through a tough childhood and many challenges to become one of the most inspirational and positive people you’ll meet. In this episode, Dez talks about the five F’s that guide all his decisions in business and in life: Faith, Family, Fitness, Finances, and Fun.
Here are my four big takeaways from the conversation:
His former Chicago Bear coach Lovie Smith encouraged each player to take ownership of their own job, letting them do the important steps on their own, such as workouts, and instead focused on their outcomes, thus empowering them to be leaders in their own jobs.
When you change your focus and your mindset, you can make powerful changes in your life.
Dez believes that every day you should do something that will move you forward.
Intentions without plans will always remain intentions.
I know you’ll enjoy this episode! What was your biggest takeaway?
